Profile / Additional Information

This Insect type Digimon may have a hard encrusted shell and is one of the first Insect types to be created, but he is still low in aggressiveness. He has four hard claws on his foreleg, mid-leg and hind leg--the mid-leg in particular allows him to grab and hold objects skillfully like human hands. Whilst many other Insect types at the Rookie level are devious in nature, Tentomon often shows carefree habits as a lover of nature through his life, often smelling flowers or taking naps in the shade of trees. His special attack is "Petit Thunder", which rubs his wings together and amplifies static electricity, then zaps it at the enemy.

Battle Chronicle
A ladybird-like Digimon. Its whole body is covered in hard shell. While it has sharp claws and might look fierce, it is actually very carefree and has a kind personality.

Note-1 In the CD Drama, Digimon Adventure 02: The Path to Armor Evolution, Tentomon, along with some other Digimon from Season 1, wants to Armor Evolve. Tentomon pretends to use the Digimental of Knowledge to Armor Evolve to JokiChuumon. JokiChuumon is apparently a traffic director. (Lavender Feline)
