Tentomon is an Insectoid Digimon. It is the original type of Insectoid Digimon who, although it has a hard shell, still has low aggression. It has one hard claw on each of its fore-legs, and four on each of its middle- and hind-legs, and in particular, the middle-legs are able to skillfully grasp objects just like a human hand. Although the other Insectoids at its Digivolution level only possess fighting spirit, it still retains its naturally friendly sentiments, and displays its carefree way of life by doing things like sniffing the scent of flowers and napping in the shade of a tree.[4]

Digimon Survive[]

When Arukenimon kidnaps Miu Shinonome, Tentomon sees it happen. It takes pity on her and frees her, though Arukenimon notices and takes Tentomon in her place as Miu escapes. After the children defeat Arukenimon and her Dokugumon minions, Tentomon yells out for help which leads the group to it. Agumon frees Tentomon, with Tentomon surprised to see more human children. The group realize that means it had seen Miu, and Tentomon tells them about what had happened. It then tells then where Miu had ran towards.

When the children travel through the waterway on their way to infiltrate the enemy base, Arukenimon follows them. When she's discovered she creates a thick gas, knocking them all out. She has her minions, a Tentomon included, pretend to be fake versions of the Kemonogami partners who insult them and even try to kill them, though the children are able to figure out that they were fake and not their actual partners since they would do those things. Upon being discovered as fakes, Tentomon and the other fake partners reveal their true forms and attack the real versions, though are defeated, with this happening multiple times to each kid (Shuuji Kayama being the sole exception, as he instead saw fake versions of his Father).

When Agumon and Takuma hang out in the forest, they see a Tentomon, Palmon, and Gomamon hiding in the bushes. When the trio spot them, they run away to the shrine in fear. If Takuma follows them, he finds Tentomon near the shrine and if he tells it not to be scared of him it happily joins his on his journey.
