Tankmon is an Android Digimon. It holds the alias of "Mercenary Digimon", since it will assist both Vaccine and Virus Digimon if it becomes profitable to do so. With its heavyweight-power and the heavy artillery installed all throughout its body, it can pulverize the enemy into scrap without even turning to face them. As it is extremely fond of strife, it follows after conflicts wherever they occur. When this loner Digimon goes somewhere, the fighting there will never cease.
- Hyper Cannon: Fires a super-powerful missile from the gun barrel on its head.
- Machine Gun Arms (Machine Gun Arm)
Tankmon is similar in design to the Type 90 Kyū-maru.
- Tankmon (タンクモン)
Official romanization given in the Digimon Reference Book and used in the franchise.
An army of Tankmon worked for Machinedramon in his city. Tai, Agumon, Izzy and Tentomon encountered one patrolling the hospital while being chased by one of the Mekanorimon on the main level. The two DigiDestined and their Digimon jumped out off a window as the two Digimon's attacks collided, destroying them. Izzy used his laptop to confuse all of Machinedramon's army. MetalGreymon crushed some. The rest were all presumeably destroyed when Machinedramon city dissolved after the Dark Master was destroyed.
