MetalGreymon (Virus) is a Cyborg Digimon. It is the strongest Cyborg Digimon, and after going through numerous battles, it was able to survive by mechanizing more than half its body, using technology appropriated from Andromon. The MetalGreymon of File Island were able to drastically extend their vital functions through remodeling, but their flesh portions could not hold out and were discolored blue. In order to digivolve to MetalGreymon, it must fight its way through and defeat the formidable opponents who come against it. Also, its offensive power is said to equal that of a single nuclear warhead.

MetalGreymon (Virus) is a bipedal reptilian Digimon whose design carries elements of the Ceratosaurus and the classic monster Gomora albeit mechanized resulting in it having missile hatches on its chest and robotic mechanisms under its skin which are partially exposed on its tail and thighs. It has three clawed fingers on its hands and three clawed toes on its feet, with claws protruding from its heels. It wears a metallic rhinoceros beetle-like helmet on its head with red hair underneath on the back of its head and its left arm is robotic with a tether connecting its hand. It has purple tattered wings on its back and its skin was tinted blue due to the remodeling, giving it a more monstrous appearance.
Its various appearances display differences in design. In Digimon World and on its original Bandai artwork, MetalGreymon lacks its blue stripes, instead its mechanical implants are more visible on its legs. In Digimon Adventure 02, MetalGreymon regains its blue stripes, and in Digimon New Century, MetalGreymon has three blue bands on its right bicep, imitating the Dark Spiral MetalGreymon wore in Digimon Adventure 02.

MetalGreymon is the secret, strongest digivolution, and Makoto Abe is training his Hard Armor III to become it. When Shin'ichirou Jōsaki's Deathmon absorbs Makoto's Hard Armor III's data, it can assume the form of a Death MetalGreymon due to how close it was to becoming a MetalGreymon.
Go! Go!! Digimon
MetalGreymon appears on top of Mount Infinity, just before Machinedramon's room. After being beaten, it goes to the arena and opens a bar which gives nicknames to the Mameo's Digimon.
