In the manga[edit]

Crypto complaining

In the Telefang 1 manga, Crypto is the first Denjuu encountered by Shigeki when he enters the Denjuu World. The irritable Denjuu immediately grabs him and tells him to leave. Crypto does not become Shigeki's partner Denjuu until after he has to rescue Shigeki from Nejiro. He is argumentative and stubborn, but loyal to his friends.

At the end of chapter 3, Crypto evolves into Cryptoride after being severely injured in a fight with multiple Angios.
