MetalGreymon Alterous Mode is a Cyborg Digimon. MetalGreymon, who acquired mighty power by mechanizing its upper body, has been updated with further mechanization to its right arm. With the accumulation of fierce battles that it has lived through, it transformed its right arm into a huge energy cannon called "Alterous" so that it can fight against tough enemies that draw near. It exhibits its full combat ability at both close and long range, and has been remodelled to defeat any tough enemy it encounters.[6]


  • Positron Blaster: Concentrates energy into the "Alterous" and fires subluminal bombardments.
  • Alter Blade: Converts the energy it has accumulated into a positron blade.
  • Giga Destroyer: Fires organic missiles from the hatch on part of its chest.
  • Trident Arm: Launches its tethered Trident Arm to slash or wrap up enemies.
  • Giga Storm: Sends out a high-temperature energy wave from the firing ports on its chest.
