The name "Agumon" is partly derived from the Japanese onomatopoeia "aguagu", the sound of biting, and from the suffix -mon (short for "monster") which all Digimon carry at the end of their names. Thus, Agumon is literally a "biting monster".
He is a short and stout dinosaur-like Digimon standing about 2½ feet tall. His skin is bright orange and his eyes, which are large and disc-shaped, are light green. His forearms are noticeably larger than his upper arms because they are comprised entirely of broad, three-clawed hands. (Early artwork for the Digimon virtual pet depicted him with four claws per hand.) Agumon's large feet also sport three claws. Rare for Digimon of his size (yet common for many higher level digimon), Agumon has distinct pectoral muscles. His tail is fat and stubby, and his head and muzzle are almost as large as the rest of his body. Each side of his head has a small, visible ear-hole.
Agumons tend to prefer both ways to solve thing, either magically or physically. When angered, either by good or evil beings, his rage make him evolve into a stronger form.
"Agumon" is the name that all members of this particular Digimon species share. There are several different Agumon that appear in various Digimon anime and manga series who are almost always main Digimon characters. The most well-known appearance of Agumon is in the Digimon Adventure anime as the partner of Taichi Kamiya (called "Tai" for short).
