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 ''[[Creator/OneSaturdayMorning Disney's One Too]]''), and the general fad of "digital pets" having died.

* AllegedLookalikes: Being brothers, Koji and Koichi naturally have some sort of resemblance to one another, yet characters seem to marvel at them sharing an appearance. However, to the viewer, much like with Kagome and Kikyo in ''Inuyasha'', they don't particularly resemble one another beyond the things other characters have in common due to having the same art style (in other words, one could probably give another character the same hair color as the brothers and they'd look no different.) ''Maybe'' Koichi's totally different skintone could be from him spending more time in the sun than Koji. (It leads up to their being revealed as each other's long-lost twin. Fraternal twins ''do'' exist, but again, we get "they look exactly alike!" OnceAnEpisode.)

* AllegedLookalikes: People marvel at the near-identical Koji and Koichi, who like Kagome and Kikyo, don't particularly resemble beyond the things everyone has in common due to having the same art style (meaning they resemble about as much as any one person resembles anyone else with the same hair color.) ''Maybe'' you could handwave the totally different skintones as one spending more time in the sun than the other. (It leads up to their being revealed as each other's long-lost twin. Fraternal twins ''do'' exist, but again, we get "they look exactly alike!" OnceAnEpisode.)

* 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]].

** At one point after [[spoiler:Kouichi joins the team]] the entire group gets hit with an attack so hard it reveals the fractal code of their Spirits, [[spoiler:except for Kouichi who although as hurt as the others never has his Spirits exposed. Guess who is the only person there not ''fully'' in the Digital World?]]

** The opening also has a [[FreezeFrameBonus more subtle one]]: Right at the end there is clearly some glowing winged figure in the circle of all the symbols of the Legendary Warriors, with a minimum of 6 fluffy wings (but likely 8 in the silhouette with the last pair getting lost in the white circle behind it) and too short to be Ophanimon or Seraphimon. [[spoiler: Yup [[ItWasThereTheWholeTime that was Lucemon right there]], in the middle of the warriors who sealed him away.]]
