Name Origin Norse mythology. Ratatoskr, literally 'drilltooth', is the squirrel that runs up and down the trunk of Yggdrasil, delivering insultig messages between the eagle in its branches and the dragon in its roots.
First Appearance Episode 04
Ratamon is bouncy and friendly, but hard to get to sit still. He's very, very curious and sometimes a bit pushy, and doesn't really understand personal space. Though he hates being confined to small spaces and isn't likely to stick around any one place too long, he's very sociable. He has a bit of a nose for trouble, though luckily more for finding it than causing it. ... Most of the time, anyway.
Belied by his somewhat annoying personality, he's very smart, and is very interested in aiding the humans who have partnered with digimon. In fact, he seems to know a whole lot more than he lets on, but the extents of this are hard to figure out. He also doesn't really play up the cutesy-wootsy thing despite his appearance, thank god.
Ratamon can't fly, because its wings are far too little. It bounces around like rubber, using its big tail to cushion it when it falls from great heights.
