    Not really. according to this interview Andromon's design was originally quadrupedal and based off some mecha anime (the wording is a bit vague) which doesn't really sound like Robocop to me...
    You can tell that the original Andromon was quadruped (more like a gorilla) with the original Vpet sprite. Maybe the final andromon does have elements of robocop but that wasn't the original idea.

    Though now I'm curious to who this quadruped robot is.

    After reading that interview at first I thought Lilithmon could of been based of the Geisha robots from GitS: Stand alone Complex but realized that the dates don't match. Now I am even more curious, just what could it be?

    Interestingly Andromon walking...on four legs... Kinda creepy.
    Surprised Lilithmon inspired by a mecha anime? I thought she looked pretty old-fashioned villian for gory animes...
    More Interviews plz
    Yeah, I always assumed he was too... The only thing I could up of him on fours, if he Digifuse with Gorillamon to create Gorilldromon. I'm curious what anime has a robot like that...

    ^I'm actually starting to think Gorimon is based of Cy Gor from Spawn to an extent.

    Btw reflecting on Lilithmon... could she be based of the Robot Lady from Metropolis? That would be so cool!

    Plus if I'm not mistaken there was some inspiration from Lilith for said robot Lady. It would all come togheter ^_^

    Edit: Found this right now: https://www.neondystopia.com/cyberpunk-books-fiction/the-automaton-sequence-4-0-if-a-male-god-created-the-world-then-he-certainly-created-woman-first-the-female-robot-in-metropolis/

    It's a really interesting read. Seems there are some interesting parallels.

    Lilithmon's inspiration is likely Lilith, the Second Angel, from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Considering the long arms, cables on his back, and organic body beneath the robotic armour, Andromon is probably an Eva too.

    I can see Andromon's redesign having Eva elements, but I don't think that Eva might have inspired the quadruped one. Although when Eva's go berserk they could go on all fours so you have a point. Though the way he specifies quadruped makes me thinks that is the main way the source of inspiration walks.

    Never mind you could be right about Lilithmon. Rereading the interview he said from a robot anime. He didn't specify if it was necessarly a robot or not.

    Now it's sort of creepy the weird parrales from the Robot Lady of Metropolis and Lilithmon.

    Wow, I couldn't have made the connection and its in my face the entire time! as i just recently watched the new evangelion movies. They are both (fallen) angels though one's a giant bloated corpse and another a temptress. For some reason I kept thinking ghost in the shell geisha assassins.
    Andoromon long arms aren't unique to him in the digimon world, I mean, lots of humanoid digimon have them. The other parts of Andoromon look pretty generic to me, so I don't think he was inspired by EVA, which themselves, are also generic looking (to me at least).
