Andromon is an Android Digimon. It possesses a fighting strength which can fell a Digimon below Ultimate in a single blow. It was developed as a prototype for Cyborg Digimon, and the mechanically-based Andromon was manufactured at the same time as the organically-based cyborg Boltmon. Its technology was also appropriated for MetalGreymon and Megadramon. As a prototype Digimon, it possesses neither will nor emotion, so it is faithful to its programmed behavior. It was upgraded with a program based on the data acquired from the Andromon of File Island, and the strength of that program varies.
- Lightning Blade (Spiral Sword): Fires a blade of energy from its arm module.
- Gatling Attack (Gatling Missile): Fires two smart homing missiles from its chest, chasing enemies, which also contain machine guns.

Andromon is a mechanical Digimon with a humanoid body structure. Roughly 3/4 of its body is covered in chrome armor. Its right leg has little to no armor at all, leaving its pink wiring exposed. It wears a skull-like helmet that conceals its brain.
