* LoveTriangle: Zoe is at the center of what amounts to a love-polygon involving her peers. Officially, Junpei has a blatant crush on her and she comes very close to confessing an attraction to Takuya[[note]]In turn, he mentions he likes her, though his reaction to his own statement creates ambiguity over whether he meant it in a romantic context or just flubbed a statement of LikeYouAndEverybody. He later has a dream involving them on a date, though.[[/note]], and there's some ambiguous ShipTease with Koji during the first half of the season. [[spoiler:Cherubimon -> Ophanimon <-> Seraphimon]] is another important example, and had some pretty far-reaching consequences in terms of the franchise's mythology.

** [[spoiler:Lucemon against [=EmperorGreymon=] and [=MagnaGarurumon=], they don't have a chance. Every time Susanoomon shows up however, Lucemon is the one that gets beaten very badly, usually by 1 single attack on each form (the final form has 2 separate Digimon, so two attacks there).]]

* BreatherEpisode: The Man in the Moon is You, comes right after the defeat of Cherubimon and the first battle with the royal knights and right before the last arc of the series. This episode mostly consists of comic antics as the digidestined try to escape the moon and get back to the digital world. Notable events include Metalkabuterimon shooting Agunimon out of the cannon on his head.

* {{Kiai}}: Dear ''god'', ''Frontier'' loved it. ''Everything'' involved shitloads of yelling, especially later forms of Spirit Evolution (giving the impression that the process was in fact quite painful). It got to the point where so much yelling was required that MichaelReisz (Takuya) point-blank ''refused'' to voice [=EmperorGreymon=] for fear of permanently damaging his voice; Creator/DaveWittenberg instead filled in there - where, ironically, almost no shouting was involved.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: This is done in episode 12. After Takuya grabs Tommy as BurningGreymon, Tommy cries on his eye, and then Takuya notices he was about to hurt him. He then throws a tantrum, destroying rocks before turning back into Takuya, crying. He becomes lost in thought about how his actions could have destroyed everyone and that he shouldn't have been DigiDestined.

** The Royal Knights especially, which is part of what adds to their ArcFatigue for many viewers.

** The Royal Knights especially, which is part of what adds to could very well be the poster child for this trope. During their ArcFatigue for many viewers.nine episodes long arc, they spend all of their appearances beating the tar out of the heroes and succeeding their plans, without any real setback. They are only defeated after reaching their final goal.



* LargeHam: Ice Devimon seems to fall under this quite nicely. Justified as his seiyuu is none other than Creator/NorioWakamoto. The dub does this as well by having the VA emulate Creator/ChristopherWalken.

** In the dub, during Gallantmon's cameo appearance, he voiced by Brian Beacock and Steve Blum in the Fusion Voice they used in ''Tamers'', even referring to himself in plural, as a nod to the previous series (Dukemon doesn't speak in the original).

Added DiffLines:

* MonstrosityEqualsWeakness: Notably played within the series. Initially, Beast Spirits were shown to be vastly more powerful than their humanoid counterparts, but the exchanges would flip-flop constantly, especially with [[spoiler:Duskmon/Velgremon and Lucemon]] both providing examples of humanoid and monstrous forms dominating the other archetype.

** Gigasmon is derived from ancient greek giants, Sephorotmon is one huge shout out to the Kabbalah (see Rule of Symbolism below). [[spoiler:Koichi, post-reformation]] adds a lot of Ancient Sphinx derivations, and then there's Susanoomon, named for Susanoo no Mikoto, the ocean god who slow the Orochi. Orochimon doesn't make a significant appearance, however; Susanoomon instead wields a weapon called the "ZERO ARMS: Orochi".

*** JP/Junpei is a mix of Koshiro/Izzy and Jo/Joe, or at least sort of. His evolutions are similar to the Kabuterimon line, particularly with his Beast Spirit's DubNameChange to MetalKabuterimon.
*** Koichi is pretty similar to Ken (making him to only throwback to someone out of the original ''Adventure'') and his evolutions are similar to [[SacrificialLion Leomon]]; his Beast Spirit's original name was even KaiserLeomon.
