** In most {{Mons}} works, no one considers sanctioning the possession, let alone the ''use'' of monsters to fight proxy battles, especially ''[[ImprobableAge by children]]''. It's... different in ''Digimon Tamers'', being more in line to the early {{Kaiju}} films.

The third anime series of the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' franchise, ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' was the first installment to set itself in a different canon entirely. It tends to be described as "''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' with {{mons}}," or "''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'' [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids for kids]]", and for good reason--series head writer Creator/ChiakiKonaka was also the man behind ''Lain'' and is reportedly a big fan of ''Evangelion''. Distinguished for {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ing the {{Mons}} genre and being DarkerAndEdgier than every other ''Digimon'' canon since [[Anime/DigimonXEvolution (with one possible exception)]], it is significantly more cerebral, psychological, technologically minded, and becomes one hell of a CosmicHorrorStory by the end. And as a result of all this, it's rather debatable just how appropriate the show is for its "target" demographic, particularly in its last acts.

** Another shot features police officers with realistic looking guns, but dialogue was added stating that they were not loaded. [[KaijuDefenseForce Japanese Self-Defense Force]] soldiers can be seen later on armed with assault rifles (specifically the Howa Type 89 used by the real-life JSDF), but are never shown firing them on-screen.

* DarkerAndEdgier. You've got to wonder who thought it was a good idea to give a children's show to the scriptwriter of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', no matter how enthusiastic he was about the project.

That said, with some influences from ''Gaia'', ''Tamers'', although very dark for a {{Mon}}s show, still had some general tones of a {{Kaiju}} show.

* BishonenLine: Gallantmon/Dukemon. Justified by the the fact that Guilmon merges with his tamer to achieve it. Renamon does this twice, with Taomon and Sakuyamon. Given how Digimon work in this installment, most of them should be expected to do it.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Subverted by [[spoiler: Jijimon and Babamon]]. In a world where is said that "only the strongest survive", it's ''obvious'' that the nice old Digi-couple—who warmly welcome the Tamers in their house, offering food and bed—will just try to kill them at some point. Except that the couple is honestly nice, and sincerely enjoyed the strangers visit.

* CallBack: [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 "Here We Go"]] is on Rika's MP3 player in the dub. [[Anime/DigimonAdventure "Bolero"]] also happens to be Riley's ringtone.

* DeconstructorFleet: It's not just DarkerAndEdgier, it deconstructs many of the tropes present in {{Mons}} works, as well as the Digimon franchise in general.

** The main appeal of {{Mons}} are their combat abilities. In this respect, digimon are perfect, having been designed solely for battle and not for things like [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Chansey taking care of eggs]]. ''Digimon Tamers'' doesn't hold anything back when it shows how dangerous real {{Mons}} would be.

Added DiffLines:

* CoincidentalDodge: In Guilmon's first fight against Renamon. Renamon gets a pile-bunker attachment scanned on her arm and aims it at Guilmon's head. At the last second, Guilmon turns and dodges when he goes over to Takato, causing Renamon to get blown back by the recoil.
