Giromon is a Machine Digimon. It patrols within the Computer Network while floating lightly in the air, and is also known as the "Net Keeper". It is surely a frightening Digimon, as when it judges an intruding Digimon to be an opponent, it will repel them with all the attacks it is able to muster, and if it is driven into a predicament, it will completely annihilate the intruder by blowing itself up.[2]

  • Chainsaw (Giro Chainsaw)
  • Guillo-Chain Saw (分解チェーンソー Bunkai Chainsaw?, lit. "Disassembly Chainsaw")

Digimon World

A Giromon is the Net Keeper of Factorial Town, but he is wreaking havoc by destroying all the computers, causing the controls to malfunction, and making loud noises. After Mameo manages to sneak into the town's control systems and defeats Giromon, he will join File City and Andromon will repair the computer parts that Giromon broke. In File City, Giromon builds a jukebox for the restaurant which can play all of the game's music tracks.

In the North American versions of the game, using the jukebox will cause the game to freeze.
