* {{Antimatter}}: Imperialdramon's ''Positron Laser'' attack. Lasers do work by stimulating electrons, and positrons are the anti-matter equivalent of electrons. However it is more likely that "positron" was added just to sound cool rather than any scientific speculation.

* ThereAreNoPolice: You'd Downplayed. While the police do occasionally show up, most of the time they're either late to the party or dealing with something they think they'd be a factor at is mundane (like when Ken disappears). ** Interestingly, the kids are concerned twice about the military becoming involved. Only once does it actually some pointplot relevance.

Ocean, where she is beset by [[EldritchAbomination murky shadow monsters]] called the Deep Ones who want her for... ''various purposes''. That said, this sudden dip into Lovecraft has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the series and was summarily ignored for the rest of the show's run, except in one instance to dispose of another villain.

* ArtifactTitle: The title Digimon 02 (which refers to its TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture date) really doesn't apply to the dub which sets the show 4 years after Anime/DigimonAdventure, making it take place in 2003. Granted the dub doesn't actually call it 02 electing to call all the first four seasons Digimon:Digital Monsters but still the fandom will usually refer to it as 02 to distinguish it from the other seasons.

** Wormon's speech at the end of "Duel of the [=WarGreymon=]" also got cut from later Disney broadcasts.

In the dubbed version, Diaboromon gives the Kuramon the command (Miyako's text still plays on the screen, but ol' Diaboro gets the voiceover), which serves the dual purpose of indicating that Diaboromon is still their guiding intelligence and releasing Yolei of the moral obligations of hacking others' computers.

* {{Filler}}: One of the reasons the Kaiser arc lasted so long was because it insisted on including a string of episodes that gave CharacterFocus to somebody (not just some new Armor Evolution, but occasionally a member of the original team, too) without actually moving forward with the plot. But unlike Adventure, which only stumbled through six or so Digivolution-episodes before actually getting involved with the plot, 02 took at least 10 episodes to even get to the second set of armors, and didn't start concluding the Kaiser arc until episode 17. * FinalExamFinale: Almost every Every Digimon form of that appears in the new squad's digimon show itself (except for [[GoldenSuperMode one]]) appears during the finale. final battle.

* NonSerialMovie: Both movies were for some time out of continuity with the series, with the main characters' Digimon only able to Armor Digi-volve and Ken not being a member of the team, not to mention Seraphimon and Magnadramon. Subsequent drama [=CDs=] shoehorned ''Hurricane Touchdown'' into continuity, which resulted in massive inconsistencies: Gatomon is able to become Angewomon when she shouldn't at this point, Seraphimon and Magnadramon are accessible forms for Patamon and Gatomon, and the children are visiting New York right in the middle of the Digimon Emperor arc. ''Diablomon Strikes Back'' remains non-serial with no attempts to incorporate it, but interestingly its incorporation ''wouldn't'' have caused any continuity problems. * NotEvenHuman: After the Empire arc, the newer Digidestined express problems with actually ''killing'' Digimon, but then they learn that these threatening Digimon are actually ''control spires''.
