Digimon Reference Book: Dinotigermon

Level: Ultimate/究極体
Type: Ancient Beast/古代獣型

Special Move: Ground Fang/グラウンドファング

Profile: Wounded Digimon become its prey. An ancient beast Digimon which was the sole Saber Leomon to survive the cyclic law of the jungle's unending battle, by taking in the earth's metal components so that its whole body underwent extreme ossification. Although its movements are slower compared to Saber Leomon's, it has physical strength and toughness nearly double that of the original, massive swordlike fangs, and thickly armored skin, all with which it forcefully kills Digimon. With such valor, Dinotigermon has a wild predation instinct that other Digimon fear, so they never come near to it. Its special attacks are "Ground Fang," pinning down the enemy to thrust and whet its fangs on them, and "Highland Fang" swinging down at them with its fangs from a high altitude and instantly tearing them to pieces.

傷を負ったデジモンは餌食となる。弱肉強食の果てしない戦いを繰り返し、生き残ったサーベルレオモンの一部だけが、大地のメタル成分を取り込み、全身を超 硬質化させて進化した古代獣型デジモン。サーベルレオモンに比べて動きは速くはないが、2倍近い大きさの強靭な肉体と筋力を持ち、剣のような大きく鋭い牙 で、自分よりも大型で厚い皮膚や装甲を持つデジモンでさえ強引に仕留めてしまう。その勇猛で野性的な捕食本能をもつディノタイガモンを他のデジモンは恐 れ、近づくことはない。必殺技は敵を押え付けて、牙で突き刺し引き裂く『グラウンドファング』と、高所から牙を振り下ろし瞬時に切り裂く『ハイランドファ ング』。

Note that this Reference Book profile is worded somewhat differently from Dinotigermon's original virtual pet profile, but is identical to the lore given in Digimon Collectors and Digimon Fortune;

Digimon Pendulum X Profile
A very small minority of Saber Leomon survived the cyclic law of the jungle by taking in the earth's metal components so that their whole bodies underwent extreme ossification.
Special Move: "Ground Fang," pinning down the enemy, and thrusting and whetting its fangs on them.


The Digimon Reference Book is Bandai's official bible on the various Digimon species, first launched in 2007 and now comprising over seven hundred different Digimon out of the thousand-plus species that exist. It updates weekly with new Digimon profiles. Last week's profile was Karatsuki Numemon.
