Two PawnChessmon are the partners of two women that are members of the DATS organization, Miki and Megumi. They help in DATS' attempt to keep Digimon from damaging the peace of the real world, and can often be seen working at computer terminals. In episode 21, they digivolve to help protect the city from the army led by Gotsumon

In episode 36, they warp digivolved into RookChessmon and BishopChessmon in order to help fight off Belphemon and remained in this state for the remainder of the three episodes, however Belphemon managed to grab them with his chains de-digivolving them into their basic forms. Later, the PawnChessmon were present in the battle against Yggdrasil but did little fighting. They eventually returned to the Digital World with the other digimon and their current location is unknown, although it is assumed they either stayed with the other digimon or travelled to the Chessmon village.
