Henry Wong, known in
Japanas Jianliang Lee (or "Jenrya Lee" , depending on translation) (李 健良 Japanese: "Rii Jenrya", Chinese: "Lǐ Jiànliáng"), or Jian (ジェン "Jen") for short, is a fictional character in the Digimon Tamersanime series. The human partner of Terriermon, he is known for his calm presence and pacifist attitude. He was voiced by Mayumi Yamaguchi(Japan) and Dave Wittenberg(US).
Being the 3rd born child in his family, Henry has a little sister named Suzie Wong (Shiuchon Li) as well as an older brother and sister, Rinchei and Jaarin.
Henry is half-Chinese and half-
Japanese; his father (Janyuu) is Chinese and his mother (Mayumi) is Japanese. Along with his father, Henry is a Tai Chistudent, a fighting style he would later utilise in combat when biomerged with Terriermon into MegaGargomon. Henry meets Takato Matsukiat school and helps him after Guilmongets into a bit of trouble.
Henry becomes a digimon tamer after Terriermon passes out of the computer game and into his arms. After Henry realizes he has hurt many digimon through the game, he promised Terriermon that he would never make him battle again. Henry is often reluctant to battle and refuses to allow Terriermon absorb a digimon's data. But after many situations where Terriermon is forced to digivolve and fight, Henry realizes there are many battles worth fighting.
Henry is often seen as a protective older brother to Suzie and refuses to allow her to follow him even if he has to use force. He also jokes with Terriermon about being 'princess pretty-pants,' and became good friends with Takato and Guilmon very quickly.
As a Tamer, Henry often thinks a lot about Terriermon and tries not to be reckless about slotting in his modify cards. When Henry couldn't get any data on the first Deva Takato and the gang encountered, he refused to give Gargomon any modify cards because he wasn't sure which ones to use. Henry helps Takato many times when Guilmon is in trouble and is often the most calm mind. In the season finale, Henry and Terriermon biomerge to become
MegaGargomonand turns the D-Reaper into a harmless program, saving the world. When the kids return to the park, all the digimon start to glow. Sadly, Terriermon de-digivolves to Gummymonand his father explains that the Tamer digimon must return to the digital plain. Henry starts to cry and feels like nothing will ever be the same. Terriermon flies out of Henry's arms despite his protest and sadness along with the others.
Digimon Tamers: The Adventurer's Battle
Henry and Terriermon went with Takato and Guilmon to ohio for summer vacation. Henry came to see the meteor which had landed near the islands and after returning to his hotel with pictures, he was phoned by his dad who told him that communication systems in

Afterwards, the two were warped with Rika Nonaka, Kyubimonand Omnimon to the VP Labs where Takato and Growlmonwere fighting the true enemy: Mephistomon. Henry was present as the battle continued into an alternate dimension where Mephistomon became Gulfmonand WarGrowlmon, Rapidmonand Taomoncreated the "Trinity Burst" to defeat Gulfmon.
Digimon Tamers: Digimon Runaway Locomon
Henry was onboard a train with Terriermon, Suzie and
Lopmonwhen Locomonarrived in the Real World. When the trains were rendered inoperable, Henry, Suzie and their partners had to hoof it on foot. After leaving Suzie behind and accidentally taking Lopmon instead of Terriermon, he met up with Kazu, Kenta and their partners and they hijacked a train car to catch up to Locomon. On the way, Henry switched Lopmon for Terriermon as they passed Suzie. Henry Biomerged with Terriermon to MegaGargomonto fight the Parasimonthat were showing up in Shinjuku. After they were defeated, Henry attended Rika's birthday party.
