Ballistamon is a Machine Digimon. It is a heavyweight Digimon that possesses bulky metallic armor and overwhelming power. It appears warlike at first glance, but because of its gentle personality, preferring harmony to conflict, it will never attack first. However, if it gets into a fight, it becomes a powerful and matchless fighter that swings its stout arms and wipes out the opponent. With its heavy armor and great power, its potential for both offense and defense is great, and if it connects with a hit then it doesn't quit, although its specialty is a one-hit knockout attack which capitalizes on its great power. However, its too-heavy body can be its ruin and there is a problem with its keenness, so it is not very good at fighting with fast-moving opponents. The horn on its head is its pride, and though the horn becomes the essence of its close-combat attacks, it hates for the horn to be carelessly touched. Also, Ballistamon is able to lend its heavy armor and power to another Digimon by changing into its "Enhanced-armor Mode" (強化装甲形態 Kyoukasoukou Keitai?).
- Ram Slammer (Horn Breaker): Heroically uses its horn to fling the opponent.
- Seismic Speaker (Heavy Speaker): Emits a low tone from the speaker in its belly, shattering the opponent. This technique conceals the power to smash rocks and shake mountains, and that power level rises when it gets hungry.
- Arm Bunker: Charges energy into its arm.
- Doomsday Woofer (Ultimate Speaker): Amplifies sound into a destructive sonic wave.
Ballistamon is a robotic Rhinoceros Beetle (Trypoxylus dichotomus).
- Ballistamon (バリスタモン)
