Humanoid Dwarf Gekko , also known as the Double Tripod, were a variant of Dwarf Gekko utilized in 2018.
As their names implied, the Humanoid Dwarf Gekko were two Dwarf Gekko that were conjoined by the top arm of the lower Dwarf Gekko, giving a somewhat human-like appearance. They occasionally taunted their foe by doing a sweeping wave at the enemy.

Six were known to be in existence during the World Marshal Incidents. One was involved during the Abkhazian Coup, where Mistral forced the LQ-84i to shake its hand, while making it seem as if it was to shake her hand, shortly after reactivating its range limiter.
Behind the scenes
The Humanoid Dwarf Gekko (人体ロボット矮星月光 Jintai robotto Waisei Gekkō)/Double Tripod (倍三脚 Bai sankyaku) are bonus enemies that are encountered in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. They usually require certain conditions, such as not raising an alert in an area (R-05), destroying several enemies beforehand (R-02), or can be found in out of the way places that either require a long trek (R-07), have some handicap on them (R-03) or are unreachable outside of a long-range weapon (R-04). Destroying all five will unlock the trophy/achievement "Tearing Away the Disguise," a reference to a scene in Act 3 of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots involving the Dwarf Gekko.
Although not actually fought in the Blade Wolf DLC, one did briefly appear in the ending of the DLC.
