Guardromon is a Machine Digimon. It is a protector by nature, a mechanical defense specialist who faithfully fights for justice and protects the computer network. However, it tends to be rather foppish and frequently unlucky in its endeavors. When combined with the "Net Keeper", Giromon, it has the defensive efficiency of an iron wall. There are times when evil hackers utilize it to protect them.
Guardromon are shown in a flashback with a bunch of Mekanorimon. The Guardromon are led by the Dark Master Piedmon while raiding a building that the Digi-Eggs of the eight DigiDestined partner Digimon are held in, but a younger Gennai makes off with them.
Digimon Adventure 02
Some Guardromon are under the control of the Digimon Emperor's Dark Rings in Full Metal City. One blows up the Digi-Port to the Real World before Kari Kamiya and Gatomon can make it through. Later on during this event, a Guardromon shoots down Nefertimon before Flamedramon and Pegasusmon deactivate them all. After Andromon successfully fights the control of the Dark Ring, he blows up the Control Spire, afterward reactivating and reprogramming the Guardromon. One Guardromon is among the Digimon seen during the final battle against MaloMyotismon.
Digimon Data Squad
A Guardromon was among the Digimon deleted by Akihiro Kurata's forces 10 years before the series.
Some Guardromon work with Andromon's resistance group in Light City.
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.
