Yet another peak into Growl's past. No matter how strong he was, for some reason or another, he gets deleted
. Whether it be a Royal Knight stopping him, a group of tamers and their digimon, a random stronger digimon, or the Digimon Emperor taking his data to create a powerful servant, Growl doesn't get to stay and cause destruction in his Ultimate or Mega form for as long as he would have like.
That latter thing being an issue as things like that screw with his data and makes it take longer to accumulate more data to fill the gaps ripped out of him. Due to that, it makes it harder to reach digivolution.
Growl once again hatched, annoyed by the fact that he got deleted again
. Unfortunately for him but is probably a good thing, this time he had gaps in his data that caused him to take a really long time digivolving from to in-training and rookie level. This means it took him 2 years to digivolve to in-training. By the time he meet Louis, he was still stuck as a Gigimon. Though that was a combination of gaps in his data and the difficulty finding fight he can handle and absorb data at that small stage. Growl still keeps his memories and skills though, but it doesn't matter when the rookie digimon he does try to fight are in villages and can easily outnumber him and chase him out or are stronger than he can actually handle.
As of last time he hatched, Growl was manipulative, mean, aggressive, and cold.
He couldn't care less what others think of him.
