Piedmon is a Wizard Clown Digimon whose name and design are derived from the Pierrot and the mythological Paimon and whose English name is derived from pieing. Strange-looking and elusive, it is completely shrouded in mystery. As Demon Man Digimon have many mysterious qualities, and since Demon- and Undead-species are basically beings from another reality, their true forms are not totally understood. It is unclear why Piedmon appeared and what the purpose of its existence is, and there are currently no means of clarifying these questions. However, since its strength is without equal, if you happen to stumble across Piedmon, you probably won't be able to do anything but curse your fate. It has four swords pierced through the "Magic Box" on its back. The pommels of Piedmon's swords are designed after the four traditional suits for playing cards: "Clubs", "Diamonds", "Hearts", and "Spades".

Piedmon rules the wastelands and presides over the "Nightmare Soldiers", a demonic army which includes LadyDevimon, and a multitude of Vilemon. Piedmon is easily the most powerful of the Dark Masters, as well as the most cruel; he also has a sadistic sense of humor, often cracking jokes. He is a master of deception and trickery, and acts as the leader of the Dark Masters.

Piedmon was created by Apocalymon long before the DigiDestined arrived in the Digital World, and was aware of the Agents' plot to bring the DigiDestined into the Digital World to save it. With an army of Guardromon and Mekanorimon, he attempted to steal the DigiDestined's arsenal, but one of the Agents, Gennai, was able to retrieve the Digi-Eggs and Digivices intended for the DigiDestined and escaped in a Mekanorimon. However, Piedmon obtained the Crests and Tags, and gave them to Devimon to hide. Devimon hid the Tags in the Net Ocean while he scattered the eight Crests around the Continent of Server. While the DigiDestined were fighting Myotismon in the Real World, Piedmon and his fellow Dark Masters were able to take control of the Digital World. Piedmon lived atop Spiral Mountain, which consisted of areas of the Digital World that had been turned into a lifeless wasteland; he saw no need in specializing what kind of area he wanted aside from darkness. He observed his domain and monitored the other Dark Masters while they fought the DigiDestined using a TV-like device.

After returning to the Digital World, when the DigiDestined first encountered Piedmon in the form of a clown, narrating their impending doom before revealing himself. From there, he easily defeated WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon because he had far more experience. Before he could ask for "audience volunteers" for their "grand exit[s]", Pixiemon rescued the Digidestined and sent them to MetalSeadramon's territory. He watched from his castle as each Dark Master fell until his Digital Wasteland was all that was left of Spiral Mountain.

Before confronting the DigiDestined, he sent LadyDevimon, his personal bodyguard, to kill them, but she failed. He fought them and nearly killed WarGreymon, but Matt and Garurumon showed and healed WarGreymon. Because he saved himself for the end, MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon were able to gain experience from their fights with the other three Dark Masters and back him into a corner with their combined strength. To avoid a losing-battle with them, he turned them, along with Andromon and most of the other DigiDestined into inanimate keychains; only T.K., Angemon, and Kari escaped, while Mimi and Lillymon were elsewhere. He was briefly held off by Angemon, but then sent T.K and Kari off a cliff by cutting a rope they were holding on to. However, T.K was able to digivolve Angemon into MagnaAngemon, who easily beat Piedmon, and then turned everyone back to normal. Despite Piedmon's efforts to counterattack with his army of Vilemon, Piedmon was blasted into MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny, thanks to WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, which then sealed, putting an end to the Dark Masters.

Piedmon is one of the villains resurrected by Millenniummon. When Ryo Akiyama arrives at Piemon's Palace after defeating Millenniummon's other henchman, Piedmon swears to deliver Ryo's head to "Lord Millenniummon" on a silver platter, but fails. He reappears at Millenniummon's Lair, but once again fails to live up to his boasts and is defeated. Digimon Adventure: Anode/Cathode Tamer

Piedmon is partnered to Sigma of the Alias III. At first, things looked bad for Zeromaru since the commands of Sigma proved to be better and quicker than the ones which Taichi was sending to Zero. However thanks to the strong bond and trust between Zero and Taichi, the duo was able to defeat Piedmon. After the battle both Sigma and Piedmon changed their behavior and returned to Daemon's castle. As punishment, Daemon had Neo Saiba fight Piedmon with the newly hatched Arkadimon. Despite being only a Fresh level Digimon, Arkadimon killed Piedmon by stabbing him and absorbed his data to digivolve to his Rookie form.
