Later in Digimon Adventure 02, Hawkmon gains the ability to assume a second Armor form - Shurimon, from the Digi-Egg of Sincerity. After the defeat of the Digimon Emperor, Hawkmon's natural champion form is unlocked, as well as the ability to DNA Digivolve with Gatomon.
In Dimensions, Book Three, he gains the ability to Biomerge with Yolei to reach the mega form, Valkyrimon. He sometimes has to be logical when his partner tries to react emotionally, like when she believes Ken is in trouble in Book Seven.
