MetalEtemon is a Cyborg Digimon. It calls itself the "King of Digimon", and was once called the strongest Digimon. It went out to fight harsh battles in order to search out a mighty person, and though it was able to acquire valuable combat data, it was also considerably injured due to the constant battles. It then studied its own weaknesses from the data acquired through battling, and has now been perfectly reborn as an ultimate combat machine by full metallizing itself. Its body surface has a full coating of the Chrome Digizoid metal used by Metal-species Digimon. Its combat abilities have been raised to their maximum, giving birth to an invincible fighter which has acquired Strong- and Dirty-style wrestling skills.[6] MetalEtemon is on good terms with WaruMonzaemon, and it is said that the WaruMonzaemon plush toy it wears on its waist is something that WaruMonzaemon sent to it.[7].

MetalEtemon is a humanoid chimpanzee with armor made out of Chrome Digizoid. It wears a pair of black sunglasses and has a WaruMonzaemon toy attached to the right side of its waist. Its left wrist has three belts and screws in its ears, right shoulder, and knuckles. It has gold teeth and wears a gold medallion. The characters on its chest read "Strongest" (最強 Saikyou?).

In its Toei art, Digimon World, Digimon World 2, and Digimon World 3, MetalEtemon does not have the "Strongest" (最強 Saikyou?) symbol on its chest. Its model in Digimon Digital Card Battle lacks the symbol, though its battle portrait has it.
