* [[KidHero Kid Heroes]]: Much like its predecessor, Frontier deconstructs the idea, albeit in different ways; rather than thwart the vilains at nearly any turn, they lose consistently even against the [[StarterVillain Starter Villains]], and notably, this is the only season where [[spoiler:the world is legitimately destroyed]].[[ReconstructedTrope Even so, the world gets rebuilt and habitable, and hey, little victories still counts as victories, if less than ideal.]]

* FiveBadBand
** BigBad: Cherubimon.
** TheDragon: Duskmon
** EvilGenius: Mercurymon
** TheBrute: Arbormon and Grumblemon.
** DarkChick: Ranamon
* FiveManBand: An almost archetypal example.
** TheHero: Takuya and his forms are TheLeader.
** TheLancer: Koji is such a great lancer that he spends the earliest part of the series on his own.
** TheSmartGuy: Zigzagged. Among the humans, ''JP's'' the Smart Guy, but as Digimon, Kumamon and [=KorIkkakumon=] fit this niche.
** TheBigGuy: No real examples among the humans (Tommy's just the TagalongKid), but Blitzmon and [=MetalKabuterimon=] are this among the Digimon.
** TheChick: Zoe and her wind spirits, providing an unfortunate combination of MsFanservice and FauxActionGirl.



* ThePsychoRangers: The Dark Legendary Warriors, [[spoiler: at least until they're purified and freed of Cherubimon/Lucemon's control, and ultimately end up going on to be instrumental in defeating Lucemon.]]

* ThePsychoRangers: The Dark Legendary Warriors, [[spoiler: at least until they're purified and freed of Cherubimon/Lucemon's control, and ultimately end up going on to be instrumental in defeating Lucemon.]]]] Their overall BigBad is Cherubimon. TheDragon is Duskmon, [[spoiler: a corrupted [[LukeIAmYourFather relative of one of the heroes]]]] and the most powerful and mature member. The EvilGenius is Mercurymon, who talks in PurpleProse as he plots to take over the team himself. TheBrutes are Arbormon and Grumblemon who are both pretty much DumbMuscle. Grumblemon also acted as the WakeUpCallBoss to let you know things are getting serious. DarkChick is Ranamon who is vain and belittling, and pretty much only around for a DesignatedGirlFight with Zoe.


Added DiffLines:

* Appearance wise they look like a FiveManBand, (Takuya - TheLeader, Koji - TheLancer, Zoe - TheChick, JP - TheBigGuy, Tommy - TheSmartGuy) but by role, its not the case.
* By their actual story roles Takuya and his forms are a RedOni {{Leader}}. Koji is such a great BlueOni AloofAlly Lancer that he spends the earliest part of the series on his own. Zoe and her wind spirits are TheChick, providing an unfortunate combination of MsFanservice and FauxActionGirl. JP and his thunder spirits are TheBigGuy as physically the largest and most powerful fighters. Tommy is the TagalongKid that the others look out for until he matures enough to take care of himself. Bokomon is TheSmart guy who cites the lore of the digital world and directs the adventure. Neemon is a PluckyComicRelief CloudCuckooLander.

** One non-speaking cameo featured a Gatomon who was accompanied by a Wizardmon. [[TearJerker/DigimonAdventure Thanks for opening up old wounds, Frontier!]]

** There is also Icedevimon's impression... of ChristopherWalken.

** In the fight against IceDevimon, you have Kouji and Takuya's digivices frozen. Would have been really useful if one of their teammates had the elemental affinity for ice and could have unfrozen them, huh?

* MayTheFarceBeWithYou:
** Not a parody exactly, but Koichi's story has many parallels with Anakin's in Revenge of the Sith. Such as being manipulated by a powerful politician who meddled in the Dark Side, having a new identity alongside a black intimidating armor, and his one relative (who we found via a surprising reveal) being the one who brings him towards the "light".

** Izumi/Fairymon shows some pity towards Ranamon before she defeats her because Ranamon was only nasty due to how pained and empty she was inside, so she hopes purification can heal her ("This digivice will purify your broken heart!") [[LostInTranslation The dub unfortunately removes this]], making Zoe/Fairymon [[MoralDissonance just happy to be rid of her]]...which [[BrokenAesop kind of goes against that particular episode's message.]]

* HoYay: Several moments, like its predecessors do, but Episode 41 takes the crown. After Kouji saved Kouichi from Lordknightmon, they started talking very romantically. Complete with the LoveBubbles. Granted, that's just Lordknightmon's imagination, but that scene probably is the most slash-shippy scene in the anime. And yeah, that scene was one of the reason why the {{Twincest}} pair is one of the most popular ship in the fandom. [[MemeticMutation Come on, even Lordknightmon ships Koukoucest.]]
