* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse: Dub only. Myotismon condemns Gotsumon and Pumpkin to his dungeon. not kill, condemn. T.K. and Matt never think twice of trying to save them when they get back to the Digital World. In the original version, they weren't so lucky, but for the dub, it comes off as this trope.

** In the end of episode 17 a cactus saves the team by shielding them from Kokatorimon's ship. After he blew up with It, the the top of the cactus starts glowing. When the glow fades, the cactus grows a beautiful pink lily. Inside it, lies the Crest of Sincerity. This foreshadows that Palmon's ultimate Digivolution may not be in that bad taste.

* AndIMustScream: In Episode 52, Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, and Joe are turned into keychains by [[MonsterClown Piedmon]]. He ends up doing this to their Digimon as well. This is downright horrifying considering that from the keychains' perspective, they see, feel, and hear nothing.

** An interesting varation is the Tokyopop translations of the Manhua adaptation. The Manhua adaptation compressed the story considerably, skipping over and rushing minor and sometimes not-so-minor events. With added humor by the English writer, the Manhua gave the effect of an Abridged series.

** Apocalymon in the final battle was surprisingly cunning as well. He directly attacked the children, thus forcing the digimon to become human shields and leave themselves defenseless to his attacks. The kids in turn got GenreSavvy right back at him and rode on their Digimon for the second battle, rendering this tactic useless.
** Angewomon has had this on two occasions. She ''cuts off'' her opponent midsentence during CallingYourAttacks by calling hers faster. In both cases it resulted in her victory.

** But in the spanish latinamerican dub, they refer to each other as brothers but their parents are divorced, and the mother keeps TK, but calling your half brother 'brother' in spanish is a sign of fraternity.
* EliteMooks: Snimon and Tuskmon. Snimon is able to take down Garudamon despite only being an adult level while Tuskmon throws Garurumon around like a ragdoll, forcing Kari to give herself up to Vamdemon. The second time they clash with three of the Chosen Children who engage the two as a distraction. [=WereGarurumon=] opens with a sucker punch to both Digimon, which they both shrug off. This time around, Garudamon handles Tuskmon on her own, leaving Zudomon and [=WereGarurumon=] to fight the more powerful Snimon. Even after being outnumbered by three Digimon each an evolution level higher, they still manage to keep the three Digimon and their children tied down long enough for the other children to climb to the top of the Fuji TV Station before they are incapacitated.

** At the end of Episode 1, the narrator in the Japanese version says: "it was the beginning of the longest, and shortest, summer vacation they had ever had", foreshadowing the fact that time flows differently in the digimon world.

* GameBreaker: In-universe. That's basically what happens when someone enters the Digital World while holding a laptop computer. Izzy isn't able to enter full god mode on the Digiworld, but this allows him to use some shortcuts like access some hidden information about towns, analyse Digimon and perform a temporary upgrade on his own mon. In other words, he cheats.

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: A few: Ogremon during the Devimon arc (he later does a HeelFaceTurn), Etemon whenever he lost, and [=DemiDevimon=] who kept falling foul of Myotismon's displeasure. Puppetmon also has shades of this owing to his LonersAreFreaks and IJustWantToHaveFriends problems, but it's overriden by how frequently he decides to KickTheDog for the most pathetic of reasons.

** It's worth noting that none of the digimon she struck were incapacitated by her; They all were strong enough to fight off the several Devidramon that were sent to fight the chosen children after the fact.

* NeverSayDie: Completely averted in the original. In the dub, it's inconsistant depending on the episode; in general it did a decent job at averting it, with a few glaring exceptions:

** After the kids first reached the Digital World, they ran into a bunch of payphones and, overjoyed, desperately tried to call their homes. Unfortunately, when they tried, all they got were a variety of non-sequiturs from the operators up to and including a weather forecast that included "a slight chance of ice cream." The operators in the Digital World must be either crazy or stoned.
*** Not so much when you really think of it. FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realise the Digital World is the internet, and the internet communicates in frames of bits. The seemingly random communication they are receiving are corrupted frames, so they are hearing 2 parts of 2 different frames, one having to do with weather the other with food. It makes sence in context.

* PottyFailure: When TK and Patamon were in Primary Vilage, one of the baby Digimon has an accident. In one episode Koromon is in the car and poops himself, and in another episode he eats too many eggs and has an accident offscreen.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Matt's crest was even called '''Friendship''', so it's very specifically fuelled by this. In a more general instance, it's part of what fuels the evolution of the partner Digimon.

** To be fair, Gatomon's attack against the other Digidestined's digimon didn't exactly incapacitate them; They still had the strength to fight off the horde of Devidramon that was sent after them in Myotismon's castle after all.

** ''Our War Game'' has two kids fighting against a killer digimon against the clock because the said mon, which is essentially a sentient computer program, is planning to fire nukes that it got access to by hacking the military. [[WarGames Even the name gives a clue to a certain 80's movie]].

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: Moreso in the movie than the series (and much more so in the dub than the original, though it had its moments), it gets particularly jarring when an extremely emotional or suspense scene occurs, and one of the characters makes a joke that a fifth grader would think of.

** It was worse in the original. The very episode that established the existence of the eighth child also happened to be the episode which started using the second ending credits theme, which prominently displayed the names and pictures of the eighth child, her digimon ''and'' its entire evolution line.
*** Partly justified since when Hikari was first introduced 6 episodes before the 8th child arc starts, it shows her Digivice, and expliticly states her destiny to join the chosen. There was also the fact that the PilotMovie featuring Hikari was released before the show started, so it wasn't exactly a ruined surprise. Not so justified with Gatomon being her Digimon which could have been a surprise, but was ruined by the closing.

* SuperPoweredMooks: Snimon, an Champion digimon, is able to bring down Garudamon, an Ultimate, with a single swipe. To elaborate, Garudamon had already defeated Mammothmon and held off Myotismon himself when he was without the benefit of his fog barrier, making her one of the most competent partner Digimon at the Ultimate level. He also shrugs off blows from [=WereGarurumon=] with little ill effect and is able to hold a much larger and further evolved Zudomon for a considerable period of time.
* SwordAndGun: Omnimon. On his left [=WarGreymon=]-shaped arm, he has the [[{{BFS}} Trascendant Sword]]. On his right [=MetalGarurumon=]-shaped arm, he has the [[{{BFG}} Supreme Cannon]].

* ThemeMusicPowerup: The Japanese version plays this in reverse--if there's a powerup going on and "Brave Heart" is ''not'' playing, something is about to go wrong. The TransformationSequence becomes [[HellIsThatNoise almost eerie]] without the music, especially when ''Our War Game'' did it.

* {{Troll}}: Arguably Diaborumon in the original. He didn't seem to have any real motive beyond feeding himself, and seems to have just been doing it all for shits and giggles; it doesn't help that the only vocalisation he makes in the entire film is a high-pitched giggle. The dub instead opts to give him something of a FreudianExcuse.

** But also averted in a sense. Digimon get killed--although they do get reborn--in the English dub, and one villain even ''says'' 'die' at one point (Ironically, it's Myotismon, the one who was the source of the death edit above. "When you find the eighth child, then he must DIE!")
** Tai said Kari would have died during the first [=Machinedramon=] episode.
** And in the ''following'' Machinedramon episode, there's Izzy's line "Sure, just let our Digimon DIE!"
** Izzy also lets Tai know that while the Digimon may be reborn in the Digital World when they die. Humans can't.
** Also the dub didn't shy away from what happened to Wizardmon, or the other digimon that died to protect the digidestined in the Dark Masters arc.
*** There is also this line of T.K.'s when being told that in order to make a miracle to happen, Angemon and Angewomon must shoot arrows at Tai and Matt. "But what if you like...''die'' or something."

** An even bigger example of this for Tai is a few episodes early where he get cocky being the only one that has a crest and forces Agumon to eat a lot of food and pushes him around [[JerkAss threatening to find a new Digimon and being generally rude to the other kids.]] And then putting himself in danger to induce Greymon's digivolution to Ultimate. Fortunately he learns so humility when his actions corrupt Greymon's Digivolution to the rogue and destructive Skullgreymon and Tai gets some character development in learning the real meaning of courage.
