Note-1 The viral MetalGarurumon first appeared in Starter 3 of the Digital Monsters Card Game Hyper Colosseum where it was named 'MetalGarurumon'. It then appeared in the fighting game Battle Chronicle under the name 'BlackMetalGarurumon'. The American release of the fighting game, released as Rumble Arena 2, called it BlackMetalGarurumon. Much later, the new card games called Card Game Alpha and Battle Terminal continued to call this Digimon 'MetalGarurumon'. Most recently, In second set of Digimon Jintrix Card Game, the viral MetalGarurumon was called 'BlackMetalGarurumon'.

Bandai of Japan continues to go back and forth on how they name these black variants. BlackWarGreymon being the best example. First released in Starter 3 of the Digital Monsters Card Game Hyper Colosseum where it was named 'WarGreymon'. It later appeared in D3 Ver. 1 and Digimon Zero Two as BlackWarGreymon. The cards continued calling it 'WarGreymon'. but all games would call it BlackWarGreymon. BlackWarGreymon would not get its own card until SPa-2 and has since been referred to as BlackWarGreymon in all media.

Another example of Bandai's inconsistent naming policies is the Digimon Dictionary; where the viral Agumon is called 'Agumon (Black)' and the viral WarGreymon is called 'BlackWarGreymon'. A new card game, Digimon Jintrix, seems to be finally settling on a name for these black variants. The viral MetalGarurumon, long called 'MetalGarurumon' in the card game is called BlackMetalGarurumon.
