** Subverted with [=BlackWarGreymon's=] arc, which seemed to conclude with the appearance of Qinglongmon, but never really gave any closure to [=BlackWarGreymon=] himself. BWG returned during a slow stretch in the finale, mostly because the finale had a slow stretch.

Three years have passed since the original chosen children saved the Digital World, and they have all grown up and (mostly) gone their separate ways. When a distress call from Agumon draws Taichi, Takeru, and Hikari back into the Digital World, they discover that it has been conquered by a malicious boy calling himself the Digimon Kaiser, who is using a [[PaintItBlack black Digivice]] to suppress natural evolution and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwash Digimon into his slaves]].

That is until the trio, with the help of new goggle-boy Daisuke [[DubNameChange (Davis in the dub)]], discover the power of Armor Evolution, which allows certain Digimon to attain more powerful forms while sidestepping the Kaiser's embargo on evolution. Joined by two other new kids, girly tech geek [[GeniusDitz Miyako Inoue]] (Yolei) and TheStoic [[KidSamurai Iori Hida]] (Cody), this new generation of chosen children must use their new powers to stop the Kaiser's ambitions before the entire Digital World is consumed by darkness.

It was accompanied by a pair of {{Short Anime Movie}}s. ''Hurricane Touchdown'', also known as ''Transcendent Evolution! The Golden Digimentals''[[note]]The two different titles are actually the respective titles of each half of the movie, pre- and post-intermission[[/note]], is set before Ken joins the Chosen, and details their adventures in America and dealings with Wallace, a Chosen with twin Digimon; it was dubbed as the third part of ''Digimon: TheMovie'', and [[CutAndPasteTranslation suffered for it]]. The second film, ''Diablomon Strikes Back'', is set within a year of the finale and is about the Chosen's response to the resurrection of Diablomon, the antagonist of ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Our War Game]]''[[note]]The central segment of Digimon: the Movie[[/note]]; it aired in the US as a television special under the name ''Digimon: Revenge of Diaboromon'' in the lead-up to the start of ''Anime/DigimonSavers''. Because of the length of time between the end of production on ''Adventure 02'' & the dubbing of ''Revenge of Diaboromon'', it was the only portion of the ''Adventure'' era of the show that wasn't produced by Fox, the franchise having since changed hands to Disney, but still reunited the majority of the cast[[note]]Joshua Seth was replaced as Tai by Creator/JasonSpisak[[/note]] from the first two seasons of the show after 4 years.

* BrickJoke: The last leg of the Digimon Emperor arc has the Chosen pretend to go on a camping trip (with Matt's father as chaperone) in order to stay in the Digital World for as long as necessary to defeat Ken. Jun, learning that Matt will also be on the trip, tries to invite herself along, and they ditch her the first chance they get. The end of the arc has her catching up to the group; cue a collective OhCrap on Matt, Tai, and Izzy's part.

** RidiculouslySuccessfulFutureSelf: Most of the Chosen end up in glamorous positions, and those that don't end up in nonetheless highly satisfying career; for example, [[spoiler: Davis is a millionaire food-chain owner, Sora is a Fashion Designer, Tai is the Digital World's ambassador, Mimi has her own cooking show, and Matt is an astronaut; on the slightly less ostentatious side, Kari is a Kindergarten Teacher, Ken is a detective, and Yolei is a '''housewife''' (and with her and Ken's three children, the most, ah, ''productive'' mother in the show).]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: After Paildramon introduces the combination of [[FusionDance Jogress Evolution]] (DNA Digivolution) to the series, the team's Digimon all accost Chibimon and demand details, not unlike teenagers ganging up on a friend who managed to get lucky. Kari's... enthusiasm for the concept (she insists on imagining every potential pairing with [[WalkingShirtlessScene Exveemon]]) [[YaoiFangirl doesn't help]]. It gets worse when you take into consideration how the Chosen act and react to get it to work for the first time.

* DramaticIrony: The show never particularly bothers to ''hide'' that the Digimon Emperor is local supergenius Ken Ichijouji, though it keeps the chosen themselves in the dark for a while. When they figure it out, Ken retreats to the Digital World and escalates things.

* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler: The destruction of Myotismon's soul]] becomes this when you realize just what they shot it with. [[spoiler: The light of millions of Digivices from every Chosen on Earth. To put this in perspective, ''eight'' were able to use said light to completely contain an explosion meant to destroy two worlds in one blast. Myotismon's spirit was hit with the combined light of ''millions of Digivices'' all at once fired out of an extremely powerful Digimon's ''[[{{BFG}} dark-matter cannon]]''.
