** Taken to ridiculous levels in the manga [[note]]technically {{manhua}}, as it was originally published in UsefulNotes/HongKong, not Japan[[/note]] adaptation; Takuya and Koji's Fusion forms are called by their Beast Hybrids' names (in Koji's case, interchangeably by the English and Japanese ones), [=MagnaGarurumon]= is called [=KendoGarurumon=], and their attacks are horribly misnamed...it's pretty obvious the translators and adaptors hadn't watched the dub. For a particualarly egregous example, Baromon is referred to as "Baolongshou," a literal transliteration of his name from Chinese.

* 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.

* CrossCounter: Episode 7 has Takuya and Kouji defeat a group of [=ShadowToyAgumon=] by making them do this after they've combined into a pair of HumongousMecha.

* KilledOffForReal: In an aversion of AllDeathsFinal, most Digimon are reborn as Digieggs after death, however, this does not apply to [[spoiler: Lucemon]] (the second time), Golemon, Mercurymon's minions, apparently [[spoiler: the Royal Knights]], and, tragically, [[spoiler: Oryxmon]] and [[spoiler: Sorcerymon]].

While not necessarily ''bad'', the series was heavily criticized for basically discarding the {{Mons}} concept in favor of a safer, more marketable HenshinHero gimmick, and suffered in the ratings for it. [[FranchiseKiller The lack of popularity forced the ''Digimon'' franchise onto hiatus for three years]], eventually resurfacing with ''Anime/DigimonSavers''. Also not helping was the demise of Creator/FoxKids and Creator/{{Disney}}'s acquisition of their remnants- they didn't wan't ''Digimon'', just Creator/ABCFamily, so they didn't really give a crap about it (forcing it onto Creator/{{UPN}} for the final year of what was originally ''[[OneSaturdayMorning Disney's One Too]]''), and the general fad of "digital pets" having died.

* TickleTorture: Ranamon uses this against Zoe and Tommy, before eventually giving up and switching to a more potentially deadly torture.
