Name origin: Placodermi, a now-extinct class of armoured fish.
Family: Deep Savers
Despite her often tough and hardened exterior, Placomon is a rough-and-tumble fun loving little land fish, and she's actually very easy to make friends with. She can be a little brutal sometimes in her words and her sense of humour, but she cares about those around her and likes to see them smile.
She's a fan of the 'tough love' school of teaching, generally helping others to beat their problems by 'kicking the crap out of them until they cheer up', as Perimon puts it. Surprisingly this tends to work quite well; she's nowhere near as cold as Velocimon and will strive to help everyone she possibly can.
- Depth Charge
- - Placomon releases a sphere of pressurized water from her mouth, which has enough power on impact to blow open doors or knock back larger Digimon.
- Armour Twister
- - Placomon spins rapidly on her tail and uses her heavily-armoured forearms to plough into her opponent. It can take her some time to re-orientate herself after this attack.
Despite the great strength in her arms, Placomon is very ungainly on land, often slowed to an ungraceful waddle. In times of need she can put on surprising speed, and she is a master of physical combat, using her tail to propel her around her enemies like a pinball. In the water she is both graceful and deadly, tucking in her arms to increase her speed and impact force.
