Merukimon was a peacekeeper who lives in the Infinite Ice Ridge in the Digital World. He first met Keenan Crier as an infant by his foster mother, Frigimon. While Spencer Damon, Yushima, Sampson, Kevin & Michelle (Keenan's parents) were journeying to the Divi.
Merukimon first appeared when he went to the Real World. Just as the DATS were about to finish off Falcomon, a bolt of lightning blocked the Mega Burst attack, and Merukimon suddenly appeared. He easily defeated GeoGreymon and the others and took Falcomon back to the Digital World with him.
The DATS went on a journey to the Ice Ridge, where Merukimon dwells. When they got there, they started to battle him. But unfortunately, the DATS were once again defeated by Merukimon. Yushima summoned his partner Digimon, Kamemon, who digivolved to Gwappamon and wrecked the dungeon of Merukimon's lair while the DATS escaped with Keenan and Falcomon and returned to the Real World.
After the DATS returned to the Digital World for a rematch with Merukimon, Keenan suddenly stopped the battle. Then Merukimon told the story about Keenan's tragic past and origins, about how Keenan got separated from his parents, gets adopted by Frigimon, and the human attack in the Digital World led by the evil Akihiro Kurata (who was responsible for massacring several Digimon). Frigimon was killed by one of the Gizumons, and Merukimon suddenly destroyed the Gizumons with his Thousand Fists, and chased Kurata back to the Real World. Merukimon misjudged that the DATS were not to blame for what happened from the past.
After the tragic events from the past were revealed, Kurata took his revenge on Merukimon for attacking him from the past by using a Gizumon AT, who snuck up behind Merukimon, and shot him on the right side of his chest, wounding him. Merukimon then, said goodbye to Keenan and sacrificed himself to damage Gizumon XT. Gizumon XT shot him through his stomach while Kurata laughs evilly. Merukimon was then destroyed, as well as his Digi-Egg.
After his demise, Keenan accepted his promise to live as a human with the heart of a Digimon.
