Armadillomon is a small armored armadillo- like digimon with three-clawed limbs and a short tail. In the Japanese version, he speaks with a Nagoya dialect and usually ends his sentences with "da'gya!". In the dubbed, this turned into a Southern United States accent. Armadillomon's easy going nature is a sharp contrast to his partner Cody's serious personality.
Armadillomon is one of the three Digimon of ancient times who were sealed away by the Digimon Sovereign Azulongmon in case of a crisis. He was awakened when the Digimon Emperor began his conquest of the Digital World. Cody, on his first visit to the Digital World, lifted the Digi-Egg of Knowledge. This freed Armadillomon from his suspended animation. Armadillomon is recruitable in Digimon Tamers: Brave Tamer if Ryo Akiyama saves Cody and is playable in any chapters of Digimon Tamers: Digimon Medley where Cody is a character.
