Hideouts of the Adventure Villians
I really want to geek about these hideouts because I’m a nerd and find this stuff facinating so here we go!
Devimon’s hideout is on the very top of Infinity Mountain. We don’t really see much of this hideout; there seems to be a couple of buildings there, all look like temples of some sort. We do get a very brief look inside what seems to be the main building when Devimon absorbs Orgemon, just before he decides to wreck the whole place by turning into a giant. From some Digimon games we know that there are multiple floors in this hideout (probably inside the mountain itself), and that there’s an entrance to the hideout, however it’s blocked by a waterfall (yup, the same waterfall where Takeru and Patamon landed at).
Etemon is mostly seen in his Van thing. It’s always moving with the help of the Dark Network or it’s being pulled by a Monochromon. Etemon did use other locations as hideouts too, most notably the maze-like pyramid.
Vamdemon’s castle is a huge mess, with all the of the dead ends and twists and turns it’s almost impossible to get a good picture of what it’s like. We do know that there’s a window to a kitchen that you can climb to from the courtyard, and that Vamdemon had a library/study that took you to the Gate Hall through a secret door hidden behind a bookcase. Also, the place has a lot of stairs. Also, since we were shown what the Gate Hall looked like before the Dark Masters attacked. The huge room was filled with machinery, and I’m willing to bet that the Devidramon Statues weren’t there before Vamdemon decided to refurniture the place to suit his tastes (no wonder it took him so long to get the gate working).
And then there’s the most fun hideout of them all! The unnamed building on the top of Spiral Mountain (speaking of which, three hideouts out of four where on top of mountains… if Etemon hadn’t been so full of himself he probably would’ve felt left out), which I will call The Observatory because it looks like one. A really creepy, gigantic observatory that’s a part of Piemon’s Wastelands. (BTW, not including Mugendramon’s hideout in the city nor Pinoccimon’s cottage)
There are at least two entrances to the Observatory. One is a balcony that seems to take you nowhere if you’re unable to fly (of course, we’re assuming that the mysterious rope leads nowhere) or at least able to jump down from there without dying. There’s also a ground level entrance that the kids used when fleeing from Piemon. This entrance takes you to a room with a trapeze and blue spotlights. Then you get to a huge, empty hall with wooden floors that have enough space under them to hide kids. This hall leads to some stone hallways that could take you to all sorts of places, including the balcony.
There’s also the Observatory Room which is also just absolutely gigantic. There has to be lots of room there so that both Mugendramon and Metalseadramon are able to fit in there (remember, both are huge). There’s also a pool for Metalseadramon, and a gigantic telescope with a screen on it that the four used to keep an eye on what was going on both in the Real World as well as the Digital World. There’s a chair for Piemon right next to the telescope as well as a stone couch for Piemon and Pinoccimon. There’s also some plants there and two gigantic hourglasses (maybe they were used to figure out the time difference between the two worlds?). What I want to know is how Piemon can be seen watching the telescope screen from the couch, but there’s stairs infront of the couch, enough so that Mugendramon is able to sit there with his canons on the same level as Piemon’s head, but then there’s also a platform for the telescope, and let’s not forget how there’s a huge pool that sort of going around the whole Observatory (notice the water in the second telescope picture).
