* 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".

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

*** 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.

*** Tommy/Tomoki is an expy of Takeru/TK, although his evolutions are closer to resembling Gomamon's and Terriermon's.

** 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.
