The Tankmon are minions of Machinedramon, the Dark Master of the digital city. They, like his other servants, theMekanorimon, do not appear to be sentient, but rather, controlled remotely via the computer network spread throughout Machinedramon's city.
When the DigiDestined kids arrived in Machinedramon's city, searching for medicine for the ill Kari, their presence their was alerted to Machinedramon when Izzy tapped into the network with his computer. Machinedramon immediately dispatched his armies of Tankmon and Mekanorimon, along with Megadramon and Gigadramon, to seek and destroy them. Attacking Izzy and Tai in a nearby hospital, the machines sent them fleeing, but lost track of them. They located them again when Izzy once more tapped into the network. Izzy was then able to mask their location with a computer programming trick, and the Tankmon and Mekanorimon were rendered useless.
The Tankmon appear in "My Sister's Keeper."
Name: From the word "tank."
