Main article: Tentomon#Design

His mouth doesn't move when he speaks, but does when he eats.


In the Japanese version, Tentomon speaks in a Kansai dialect. In the English dub, Tentomon was curious yet friendly, with a few eccentric quirks here and there in his head and speech. While intelligent like Izzy, Tentomon is much more cautious about keeping priorities straight, and often urges Izzy to put away a new project in order to be there for his friends. He is also protective of his tree, and doesn't let anyone touch it.
