Main article: Dingo (anime)

Dingo always carries around his tomahawk, which he also uses as a guiding tool. Although most characters, most notably TomahawkMan, question the usefulness of using the tomahawk for guidance, strangely enough, the direction the tomahawk points in or what it hits after being thrown always ends up being correct. He is a huge lover of curry.

Dingo tried to sell wood carvings for a living.

Dingo met Netto on Jyawaii Island. Dingo was homeless and penniless, and tried to sell wood carvings he made himself for a living. When he saw Netto eat curry at MaHa Niban, Dingo went inside and challenged Netto to a curry-eating contest. When it ended on a draw, the contest turned into a NetBattle, which was interrupted by Maha kicking the two boys out of the restaurant. Dingo later helped Netto rescue a kidnapped Dekao and defeat Narcy, who planned to cover Jawaii Island with curry sauce. MaHa Niban was destroyed in the process, forcing the WWW crew to go back to Japan.

TomahawkMan disagrees with Dingo's methods.

Dingo joined the WWW at the reopened MaHa Ichiban, and worked as a delivery boy. He would often get lost on the way, because he preferred to follow his tomahawk rather than a map (much to Tomahawkman's dismay). During a delivery, Dingo was caught up in an incident provoked by Sunayama, who was eventually defeated by Netto.

Dingo and Shanka grew up in the same village.

Dingo gains the crest of Duo after he rescued the stolen Totem-sama, an ancient totem pole belonging to his village, from the hands of Neo WWW. Dingo was the first to try and steal the totem pole from a museum, only to end up defending it when Narcy tried to steal it as well. Neo WWW wanted to use the totem pole as wood chips for cooking smoked meat, and managed to steal it after a second attempt. Dingo followed them to their camping location, but ended up being captured. He was rescued by Netto and Shanka, Dingo's childhood friend, who had come to represent her village. She later explained that the museum was about to hand the totem pole back to its rightful owners, after a final exposition. Dingo apologized for trying to steal the totem pole, and explained the reasons why he had left his village without telling anyone.

After receiving his crest, Dingo gained the ability use Cross Fusion with TomahawkMan. He took part in many battles against the Asteroids, and fought alongside the rest of the Cross Fusion team in the final battle against Duo.

Rockman.EXE Beast

Dingo was one of the few people who ended up at Beyondard during the battle to protect Trill from the Zoanoroids. He and Raika first met with the Human Resistance led by Commander Mask, who updated them with the events that happen in their world. The two of them left the next day to search for their friends. Eventually, they found Lan and Trill after they freed a small town from being harassed by the Beyondard version of Narcy Hide. Dingo would then rescue Iris from Captain Kurohige's castle while searching for ingredients to make curry. Dingo and the rest of his friends were eventually reunited, and journeyed to Dr. Wily's lab to end the conflict between the two Cyber Beasts. Along the way, the group were confronted by Zoano Colonel and Glaga. TomahawkMan and Blues engaged Zoano Colonel but lost easily. After Netto defeated the Super Cyber Beast, he and the others were transported back to their own world.

Manga history

Trivia

  • Dingo is named after an Australian wild dog.
    • Dingo's name implies that he is based on an Aboriginal Australian (Australian native). However, he dresses with a Native American theme and wields a tomahawk, (a uniquely American tool), indicating he is an indigenous American instead. It may be that Dingo's people are a melding of various real-world cultures, which is not unheard of in the Battle Network universe (for example, "Netopia" is named "Ameroppa" in Japan, implying that it is an amalgam of the real-world America and Europe).
