Guardromon is a Machine Digimon. A Machine Digimon that protects the computer network's defense wall. It originally worked with the "Net Keeper" Giromon to repulse those who would illegally enter through the defense wall. However, malicious hackers noticed its ironclad defensive ability and infected Guardromon with a computer virus, using it to protect themselves from the vaccine-type justice brigade known as the "Virus Busters." Because its program commands are basically purely defensive in nature, the change in allegiance to defending the intruders did not pose a huge problem for Guardromon.[9]


  • Grenade Destroyer[10] (Destruction Grenade): Fires whistling missiles from the retractable missile launchers in its forearms.

Digimon World

Guardromon is an enemy located in Factorial Town and occasionally in the Arena. There is a Guardromon in the final room of Factorial Town who will preform a unique service for Hiro's Digimon. Asking only for 2000 bits, the Guardromon will preform and "upgrade" on Hiro's partner, and if it meets certain requirements (Champion or Ultimate, has the ability to Digivolve into a Cyborg Digimon, and/or is closely related to a Cyborg Digimon), then it will digivolve. This is useful for acquiring powerful Digimon such as MetalMamemon, due to Mamemon's stat requirements being significantly easier to meet than MetalMamemon's.
