Kazu & Guardromon (Ep. 41)



Kazu Shioda and his partner Digimon Guardromon (formally Andromon) were main characters in the Digimon Tamers anime series. While their roles were minor in comparison to the "Big Three" (Takato, Rika and Henry) they remained major members of the team, helping wherever they can...mostly just to inflate Kazu's ego, however..

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Kazu Shioda

While Kazu has never shown to use Digi-Modify in combat, he should be able too. He has apparently a very large card collection though its never fully explored.


  • Gatling Attack (Gatling Missiles): Fires two smart homing missiles from its chest, chasing enemies, which also contain machine guns.
  • Lightning Blade (Spiral Sword): Fires a blade of energy from its arm module.


  • Guardian Barrage (Destruction Grenade): He fires literally whistling missiles from the retractable missile launchers in his forearms.
  • Warning Laser: Fires lasers from its eyes.
  • Red Alert

Note: Moves that appear in Italic do not appear in Tamers.
