Hardboot is a zero binome living in a Damaged System. He is some sort of manual labor worker. He says, "I'm Hardboot, my name says it all". When Matrix and AndrAIa are downloaded into the system by a Game Cube they offer to train some of the cities inhabitants so that the Cubes won't cause more damage. Hardboot volunteers and goes in a Game with them and does very well helping to win the Game. The other volunteers were Gabby, Barry, Jeff, and Backup. (Icons)
