Tuskmon is a Dinosaur Digimon. It is a super-heavyweight class Digimon that grew gigantic horns from both of its shoulders. It holds the alias "Panzer Digimon", from how it will destroy all obstructions in sight as it charges forth due to its reckless personality. It specializes in performing charging tackles, and countless Digimon have been sunk by this attack. The star symbols on its two arms represent the number of Digimon it has defeated (100 represented by one star). Also, it is a fool's errand to attempt to break the horns on Tuskmon's shoulders, as the broken horns will fall out and get replaced with new ones, just like sharks' teeth.

A Tuskmon was first seen as a henchman of Myotismon. Phantomon brought him and Snimon to Aqua City where Yamato "Matt" Ishida and Sora Takenouchi were at and attacked them, punching Garurumon over a building. Kari Kamiya surrendered to Phantomon, making a deal that she would go with him if Tuskmon ended his rampage and Phantomon left Sora and Matt alone. Tuskmon was later knocked out by Zudomon and was absorbed by Myotismon's bats so that he could be revived as VenomMyotismon.
