Rapidmon is an Android Digimon. It digivolved from Gargomon. It holds the alias of "Keen Hound", and it reliably brings down the opponent with movements near the speed of light. Also, it freely uses its gigantic ears as radar, can act even in the dark, and is also able to detect the existence of distant enemies. The silhouette of its body makes you think of a shaved poodle. During battle its neck protector shuts.[4]

  • Tri-Beam[5] (Golden Triangle): Fires a beam from its whole body that completely disassembles the opponent's data.

  • Miracle Missile

Unison Attacks

Design

Rapidmon is based on the Poodle dog breed. Its upper body is covered in green metal except for its face, the base of its ears, its midsection, and its thighs which are covered in light cream color fur.

In some media and most notably Digimon Tamers, its muzzle is covered in a facial mask.
