!!Taichi "Tai" Kamiya/Taichi Yagami
-->''"You can do it, and even if you can't, we won't think any less of you, man!"''

[[quoteright:462:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tai_-_Image_5523.jpg]]

Tai is the first season's leader, and bearer of the Crest of Courage. He's a reckless blockhead at times, willing to jump into anything, and this gets him into serious trouble when he gets the idea in his head that, since the Digital World is digital, he can't be killed. The realization that this isn't the case freezes him right in his tracks, and when he overcomes it, he makes the proper jump from "not afraid" to "courageous." Despite his recklessness, he's a warm, encouraging guy, very friendly, and the team just doesn't work without him. In the English dub, he has a crush on Sora but this is non-existent in the original Japanese and his feelings for her have always been strictly platonic.

He comes from a normal family, living with his parents and little sister, Kari. Kari ends up being a major factor in his character development, as taking care of her forces him to mature from "courageous action guy" into "responsible leader."

[[spoiler:In the conclusion of 02, he and Agumon become ambassadors to the Digital World.]]

* CrossdressingVoices: In Japanese, European Spanish, Italian and Arabic.

* TheDeterminator
* DidNotGetTheGirl: In the English dub. He doesn't really mind. He's even a ShipperOnDeck for the said boy and girl.
* DubNameChange: English first name is an abbreviated version of his Japanese name, which isn't that odd in the Digimon franchise. What is odd, though, is that his Japanese last name - Yagami - was changed for the dub into... another Japanese surname: Kamiya.
* {{Expy}}: Off of the character with the same name from ''Manga/{{Digimon V-Tamer 01}}'', who in turn is an expy off of the main character Kentarou first manga ''Manga/CMonDigimon''.

* ShipTease: In the English dub, he and Sora are teased throughout the whole first season, some of the second, and two movies.

[[quoteright:449:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Matt_-_image_9621.jpg]]

Matt wants everyone to think he's a brooding bad boy, but he's actually rather sensitive. He has issues trusting people (himself most of all), and he's very overprotective of his younger brother, TK. This causes him to be very cautious (although not as cautious as Joe), which results in a lot of clashes with the get-out-and-go Tai. Despite (or perhaps thanks to) all this, his crest is Friendship. The Digimon Adventure PSP game reveals that he has a crush on Sora and believes himself to be competing with Taichi for her affections. Taichi and Sora are best friends and while the Sora has a crush on him, Taichi only sees her as a friend.

Matt's parents divorced sometime after the Greymon/Parrotmon fight in Heighten View Terrace, but before the first episode. According to the RadioDrama ''Two-and-a-half Year Break'', Matt was the one who decided that TK would go with their mother and he would live with their father. He doesn't have a great relationship with his parents, as he seems to feel abandoned by them. He has very low self-esteem, and seems to feel his only purpose in life is to watch out for TK--when TK starts feeling smothered by him, he's noticeably dismayed. However, with some encouragement from his partner, Gabumon, he was able to come to terms with his family's divorce, and returned in time to help save the team.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, he becomes the first man on Mars. He is married to Sora.]]

* MoreThanMindControl: Thanks to [[spoiler: Cherrymon and the Sea of Darkness]].
* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Averted in 02.

!!Sora Takenouchi
-->''"Don't worry about me, I'll be fine. I'm the only one who can do it."''

[[quoteright:409:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sora_-_Image_6.jpg]]

The group's mother figure, and owner of the Crest of Love. Sora is a sweet girl, but doesn't really see that aspect of herself very well. She spends most of her time mediating fights between Tai and Matt, and keeping the group in line. She doesn't always have the patience for it, but she tries anyway. In the English dub, Tai has a crush on her but this non-existent in the original Japanese. Our War Game! reveals that she had a crush on him but he didn't feel the same way.

Sora's relationship with her parents isn't great. Her mom is a very traditional, ladylike figure who wants her to take up flower arranging, while her father is a professor at a college in Kyoto and rarely home. Sora is convinced early on that her mother doesn't love her; it's not until she unconsciously begins treating Biyomon the same way that she realizes her mother just isn't good at expressing it. They make up during the Myotismon saga, when Sora's mom pulls a MamaBear on some Bakemon.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a fashion designer. She is married to Matt.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/YukoMizutani (JP), ColleenOShaughnessey (EN)
----
* ActionGirl
* ActorAllusion: Sora hilariously {{Lampshade}}s herself in a NoFourthWall session in one of the drama [=CDs=], where she complains about sounding like an "old lady." Though 38 (the age of Creator/YukoMizutani when she voiced Sora) doesn't seem to be ''that'' old, it certainly qualifies as DawsonCasting! In addition to this, another drama track consists of a radio show recording [=DJ'd=] by Sora, which alludes to how Yuko Mizutani ran a radio show years back.
* AllWomenAreLustful: Swiftly becomes attracted to Yuri in ''02''[='=]s World Tour arc, breaking down in tears alongside Yolei when she can't take him up on his offer of dinner. [[spoiler:Note that this comes a few episodes after she starts dating Matt]].
* BettyAndVeronica: In the English dub, she's the Archie to Matt's Betty and Tai's Veronica. [[spoiler: The former won.]]
* {{Chickification}}: Played with. In ''Digimon Adventure'', she was feisty and strong, and took pride in doing things by herself and not needing to be rescued. In ''Adventure 02'', she loves to get hit with the DistressBall (see below). It's not complete, though, as she still has her moments when she's shown to be a capable fighter, as when she's fighting alongside the Russian [=DigiDestined=], though even there she and Miyako needed to be rescued.
* CoolBigSis: To Mimi, TK and [[spoiler:Kari]].
* DistressBall: The former poster girl for this trope.
* GirlinessUpgrade: Used to love soccer and despised her mom's plan for her to study flower-arranging. By ''Adventure 02'', has traded soccer for tennis and has gladly taken up flower-arranging. She also has longer hair and dresses more girly. [[spoiler: By the epilogue, this is complete with Sora becoming a fashion designer.]]
* GratuitousEnglish: Tends to use a few English phrases from time to time in the original Japanese version.
* TheHeart
* TheNotLoveInterest: To Taichi. Although the English dub for 01 created ShipTease between the two and she is more of a straightforward love interest.
* [[spoiler: HappilyMarried: WordOfGod has confirmed that she ends up in loving marriage with Yamato.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Spends several episodes of the first series in the middle of one of these.
* HeroesWantRedheads: In the English dub she is in a love triangle with Tai and Matt. In the original Japanese, this trope would only apply to Yamato because Taichi never had any interest in her.
* MeaningfulName: "Sora" is Japanese for "sky." Guess who has the bird Digimon?
* NiceHat: Oddly, it's a helmet in one episode and cloth in another.
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler: Matt]].
* OneOfTheBoys: How she and Tai relate to each other.
* ParentalAbandonment: Mom is emotionally distant and Dad is a workaholic. They work things out, though.
* ThePowerOfLove: Her Crest.
* [[RedheadedHero Redheaded Heroine]]: She has flaming-red hair and is more active than your average [[TheChick Chick]].
* RelationshipUpgrade: With [[spoiler: Matt]].
* ShipTease: In the English dub she gets teased to hell and back again with Tai. [[spoiler: [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend It doesn't go anywhere.]]]]
* {{Shorttank}}
* SleevesAreForWimps: In ''Adventure''.
* TeamMom
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Mimi's Girly Girl.
* YamatoNadeshiko: What her EducationMama, who is one already, wants her to be. Later, though, they make amends.

!!Izzy Izumi/ Koushirou Izumi
-->''"Prodigious!"''

[[quoteright:406:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Koushiro_-_Image_3327.jpg]]

Basically, Izzy is the one who can actually think his way out of a paper bag, which is only supported by his Crest of Knowledge. He's very curious and logical, and somewhat unsure of himself socially. He carries around a laptop computer, and his reactions to various problems are nearly always a variation on "If I learn enough, I can fix it."

Izzy is [[spoiler:adopted]]. His [[spoiler:biological parents died when he was very young, and his father's cousins adopted him, having recently lost a child of their own. They kept this a secret from him, but he accidentally heard them talking about it, and was devastated]]. After this, Izzy sank himself into his computer as an escape, probably to learn everything he could. At the same time, he loves his parents deeply and is very well-behaved for them.

Thanks to CharacterDevelopment and [[TellMeAboutMyFather a talk with his parents]], Izzy is able to overcome his withdrawn personality better, so that he then can help Tai out of his depression over [[spoiler:Kari falling ill]] during the Dark Masters Arc.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, he has set up a research team to study more of the Digital World.]]

->Voiced by: Umi Tenjin (JP), Creator/MonaMarshall (EN)
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlliterativeName: In the English version.
* BadLiar: Izzy tends to babble nervously, laugh awkwardly, and come up with weak sounding stories when he is placed on the spot and he is asked questions that he canít answer.
* CharacterExaggeration: His "computer nerd" status was exaggerated quite early in the dub. They even had him theorize about ''aliens''.
* ChekhovsBoomerang: In a world made of digital information, Izzy's [=PiBook=] Laptop is priceless. [[spoiler: The Digimon Analyzer reveals that [=WarGreymon=] has Dramon Destroyer weapons, which allow him to destroy [=MetalSeadramon=] and Machinedramon.]]
* ChildProdigy: Prodigious!
* CrossdressingVoices : Averted in Brazil.
* DeadpanSnarker: In the dub, Izzy tends to bring the snark in most conversation, especially if he is explaining something to either Tai or Davis.
* DoingResearch: The kids would never have gotten very far without Izzy's laptop. It does 98% of everything in the series except digivolve, be a digivice and induce the character development of traits that the digidestined need.
* DelusionsOfEloquence: The English dub gave him a CatchPhrase of "Prodigious!", but rarely, if at all, does he ever say it in a context where said word makes sense. Notably, nobody ever actually calls him out on this.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Orange boxers.
* [[spoiler: HappilyAdopted]]
* IneffectualLoner: Inverted, Digivolutions and one-time circumstances aside, he gets more done on his own than the rest of the team combined
* MissionControl: The role he plays in 02 is similar to this.
* MrExposition: Comes with being TheSmartGuy on an island made of data.
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler: Izzy lost his parents in an accident before he was a year old, so his father's cousins (who had lost their own baby boy some time ago) adopted him, but didn't tell him he was adopted. He accidentally overhears them talking about it and it caused him ''lots'' of angst until they sorted things out, at which point he becomes HappilyAdopted.]]
** [[spoiler:GenerationXerox]]: [[spoiler:His biological father was a mathematician. His adoptive father remarks that he is "the living image" of him.]]
** [[spoiler:ObliviousAdoption]]: [[spoiler:His parents ''think'' he's this, unaware that he knew the truth.]]
** [[spoiler:TellMeAboutMyFather]]: [[spoiler:This is how things got better. And it's one of the most beautifully sad moments in the first series.]]
* PottyEmergency: The original reason for Izzy's loss of composure in ''Our War Game''.
* RedheadedHero
* SempaiKohai: He's Miyako's sempai in the Computer Club.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Comes with being TheSmartGuy. Present mainly in the dub, though still crops up a few times in the original.
* TheShortGuyWithGlasses: Though he doesn't wear glasses.
* ShorterMeansSmarter
* TheSmartGuy
* SideKick: To Tai
** First Digidestined Tai finds
** Accompanies Tai to rescue Sora
** Alerts Tai to Diaboromon
** Accompanies Tai to get medicine for Kari
* TVGenius
* TeenGenius
* WiseBeyondTheirYears

!!Mimi Tachikawa
-->''"If someone's in trouble, you help them out, even if they tried to pummel you into oblivion."''

[[quoteright:420:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mimi_-_Image_8253.jpg]]

She's [[TheChick the girl]], basically. Somewhat prissy and spoiled, she doesn't always seem to "get" the situation, and is sometimes rather selfish without really realizing it. Often considered the weakest character in the English dub due to her more girly elements being [[CharacterExaggeration overplayed in translation]]. She matures into a kind, sweet, pacifistic figure, befitting her status as holder of the Crest of Sincerity/Purity. However, once she realizes how high the stakes are, she breaks down and refuses to continue, but comes to realize that some fights simply must be fought.

Mimi's family life isn't delved into much. Her parents are hopelessly in love and, like her, not always fully in-tune--but when the danger is ramped up, they prove very brave.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a famous chef with her own TV show.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/AiMaeda (JP), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN)
----
* AllLovingHero: Her compassion, willingness to forgive for the sake of peace, and cheerful demeanor get her a loyal army of Digimon followers -- including the Gekomon and Otamamon she darn-near ''enslaved.''
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: She eventually grows out of it.
* BrutalHonesty: In short, she has the Crest of Sincerity/Purity simply because she is no one but herself.
* TheCastShowOff: Episode 25 revolved around Mimi singing; her seiyuu, Ai Maeda, sings the ending songs.
* TheChick
* CloudCuckoolander
* CoolBigSis: In ''02''.
* DyeHard
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: She's not ''really'' a princess, but she poses as one for a Gekomon kingdom in episode 25.
** And PrincessesPreferPink in that episode.
* GenkiGirl
* HairColorDissonance: [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/7Fv3qvRgeAo/0.jpg Is she a light-haired brunette?]] [[http://images.wikia.com/digimon/images/2/20/List_of_Digimon_Adventure_episodes_25.jpg A dirty blonde?]] [[http://img.getglue.com/topics/p/mimi_tachikawa/normal.jpg A redhead?]] [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lwdmcicg391qfa9lqo1_500.jpg A strawberry blonde?]]
* HairDecorations
* LostInTranslation: her crest in Japanese is Purity which has different connotations from Shinto. Some other related tropes would be ThisIsUnforgivable and Kawaisa.
* LimitedWardrobe: In the second season, Mimi becomes one of the most noticeable aversions to this trope in the entire franchise, changing her clothes and hairstyle at least four times over the course of the season.
* NiceHat: A huge pink cowboy hat that she leaves behind in the Digital World at the end of season 1.
* {{Ojou}}
* OneeSama: Miyako calls her "Mimi-oneesama."
* PinkMeansFeminine: Has a NiceHat in ''Adventure''. Becomes a RoseHairedGirl in ''02''.
* PluckyGirl: In the last few episodes she gets over her sadness and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome is able to gather an army of ally Digimon to help defeat Piedmon's forces]].
* RoseHairedGirl: In ''02''.
* SingleTear: During the battle with [=DarkTyrannomon=], Mimi realizes that her family and friends are in real danger, and wishes to help. Her tear of anguish lands on her crest. Its symbol is in the shape of a tear. Mimi is rewarded with Lilymon, due to her honesty and the fact that this wasn't just selfish whining.
* SpoiledSweet: Has to grow into it, but once she does, she handles herself ''beautifully.''
* TenMinuteRetirement: After seeing several Digimon die for them, she's so distraught that she decides to temporarily stay put to not be a burden to the others. She gets better with time and rejoins the group with reinforcements.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Sora's Tomboy.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Has the most costume and hair-style changes out of all the other characters in ''02''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early character design sketches in ''02'' showed a lot more alternate outfits Mimi would have. Thankfully, some of them didn't make it into the final draft, and the most unfortunate we got was the one with the FunnyAfro.



!!Joe/Jou Kido
-->''"I tried positive thinking once. I was positive about one thing: I positively hated it!"''

[[quoteright:421:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Jyou_-_Image_8980.jpg]]

Because he's the oldest, Joe thinks he should be the responsible one and take care of the other kids--too bad he's a total pushover with no self-esteem. He's cut deeply whenever he realizes that people think of him this way, and tries to make up for it with acts of reckless selflessness that make Tai look positively cowardly. Perhaps the closest thing to a father figure in season one. His crest is that of Reliability.

Joe's family isn't a big focus, either--it's worth noting that, out of the 12 Digidestined in the first two seasons, his parents are the only ones never shown on-screen. His father is quite strict, being a doctor who wants all of his sons to be doctors, too. Joe's two older brothers, Shin and Shuu, rebelled in their own ways, while Joe is (as always) indecisive.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, he becomes a Digimon doctor (i.e, a doctor for Digimon).]]

->Voiced by: MasamiKikuchi (JP), Michael Lindsay (EN)
----
* BalloonBelly
* TheBigGuy
* ButtMonkey: Lampshaded near the end.
* CramSchool: Especially during 02.
* CrazyPrepared: Before they returned to the Digital World, Joe brought a roll of toilet paper among other things. It was used as a bandage for Ogremon's wounds.
* DeadpanSnarker: Dub only.
* EducationMama: His unseen father. [[spoiler: They reach a deal, though: Joe becomes a doctor like dad wants, but ''on his own terms''.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Lets his hair grow between ''Adventure'' and ''02''.
* ForgotICouldntSwim: Dub only.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Calls his older brothers "Shin-niisan" and "Shuu-niisan."
* LostInTranslation[=/=]{{Woolseyism}}: His crest, "seijitsu," has a lot of possible translations. The dub ended up going with "Reliability," which, while not a direct translation, is a pretty good catchall term.
* NerdGlasses
* NervousWreck: He mellows out in 02 as he matures.
* OddFriendship: With Gomamon.
* OnlySaneMan: Or at least he thinks he is at first. One of the reasons why he was such a stick-in-the-mud at the beginning; he thought he was just being reasonable and that the others were actually putting themselves in danger by being irrational, making it his job to look out for them. This attitude wears off in time.
* PapaWolf: He's a big wuss until one of the other kids is in trouble. Then the badass comes out. See TheSoCalledCoward.
* ThePowerOfTrust: Faithfulness/Reliability, actually. As in, he's the one you're supposed to have faith in.
* TheReliableOne: Crest of Reliability!
* SempaiKohai: He's sempai to the entire group, though only Sora and Mimi address him as such.
* SicklyNeuroticGeek: In the dub.
* TheSoCalledCoward: Jumping off roofs and mountainsides is badass, okay?
** WebVideo/JesuOtaku even stated that Joe is always vouching for the safest route, choice, etc...yet always the first to throw his own body at these monsters. Because all Joe cares about is everyone's safety, she stated that even when the Mega level Digimon Piedmon is bearing down on them, you knew what Joe was going to do even before it happened-trying to get the other kids out of there without any regards to his safety. Joe is the ''real'' badass of ''Digimon''!
* TalkingToHimself: Joe, his two older brothers, and his [[AllThereInTheManual CD drama-only]] parents are all voiced by Masami Kikuchi. Including his ''mother''. Indeed, a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Mr. Kikuchi--one interview with him and Koushirou's seiyuu, Umi Tenjin, talks about how surprised the other actors were when he switched between all of the characters in real time.
* TeamDad: The page image no less.
* TenMinuteRetirement: Not ''entirely'' by choice, but close enough.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Takeru "T.K." Takaishi
-->''"I don't want to fight, ever!"''

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tk_1104.jpg]]

Matt's little brother, and the youngest Digidestined (at first). As the quote may say he doesn't like to fight... [[BewareTheNiceOnes but when he does, hoo boy]]. His crest is Hope.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, he becomes an author. He was also NarratorAllAlong for the 02 series.]]

[[folder:Main Digimon]]
!!Agumon

[[quoteright:204:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agumon_5007.jpg]]

Tai's Digimon partner, who resembles an orange baby Tyrannosaurus. Like most, he has a personality similar to his Digidestined partner, if a little less hot-headed. Like the Digimon of later series' leaders, he is almost always the first to discover the next upgrade of the season and is generally the most powerful. He has the distinction of personally destroying three {{Big Bad}}s all by himself.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Botamon, a small mon covered in black fur, with yellow eyes.
** '''In-Training''': Koromon, a round, pink mon, with long ears, red eyes, and sharp teeth. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Agumon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Greymon. Essentially Agumon, but proper dinosaur size, and a massive fire attack.
** '''Ultimate''': [=MetalGreymon=]. Greymon, with added mecha-armor and wings.
*** He also accidentally dark-evolved into [=SkullGreymon=], a skeletal dinosaur with a nuclear missile attached to its back, when Tai tried to force the evolution.
*** A viral and [[AllThereInTheManual undead]] version of [=MetalGreymon=] appeared in ''02'' when the Digimon Emperor captured Greymon and made him Digivolve with his Dark Digivice.
** '''Mega''': [=WarGreymon=], an anthropomorphic dinosaur, with golden mech-armor.
*** '''Mega (DNA)''': Combines with [=MetalGarurumon=] to become Omnimon (''Omegamon''), a white paladin-like figure.

!!Gabumon

[[quoteright:163:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gabumon_1920.jpg]]

Matt's partner, a horned yellow reptile-like Digimon who, rather oddly, appears to wear a skin of white fur rather than having a natural coat. Something of a milder {{Foil}} to Matt, he often criticizes his selfish moments but sticks by him regardless.

[[spoiler: Also, the first [[IncrediblyLamePun mon]] on Mars at the end of 02.]]

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Punimon, a red blob with three headbumps.
** '''In-Training''': Tsunomon, a round, orange-furred mon with one, knife-like horn. Blows Bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Gabumon, his default form.

* FurAgainstFang: When he goes one-on-one with Myotismon, it seems to invoke this trope. Unfortunately for him the fang half seems to be far more powerful...

* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Would follow Matt, even if it put him at odds with the other Digidestined.

!!Biyomon (Piyomon)

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/biyomon_8790.jpg]]

Sora's pink-feathered bird-like partner, who often causes her some angst with her loyalty and gentleness. More than a bit hyper.

Her digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Nyokimon, a small black mon with two leaves popping from the top.
** '''In-Training''': Yokomon (Pyokomon), a pink blob with a big blue flower. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Biyomon, her default form.

->Voiced by: Katori Shigematsu (JP), Tifanie Christun (EN)

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She wears a ring around her leg. Her Mega does as well, bearing a Holy Ring on each leg.
** The ring sort of resembles an ID tag that naturalists usually place on birds to track them down after rescuing them.
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: Garudamon.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: [[CallingYourAttacks Spiral Twister!]]
** In the original, it's just called "Magical Fire".
* GenkiGirl
* GiantFlyer: When evolved. It's worth noting that of all the final forms of the protagnists' Digimon, Garudamon is tied with [=MegaKabuterimon=] as the largest of the lot.
* LoveFreak: At least when it comes to Sora.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Birdramon, who is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a cross between a bird and a dragon]].

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Not as obvious as with Izzy, but you'll notice her speech patterns are more antiquated than the other Digimon.
* TechnicolorFire: Her Spiral Twister/Magical Fire attack.

* VerbalTic: "-piyo"
* WindIsGreen: Her "Spiral Twister"/"Magical Fire" ability, which basically looks like a flaming green hurricane.

!!Tentomon

[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tentomon_7019.jpg]]

Izzy's partner, who resembles a red winged robotic insect (''tentoumushi'' means "ladybug"). Not as brainy as his partner, but sometimes with a little more common sense. Tends to rein in Izzy when his [[ForScience quest for knowledge]] goes a bit too far.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Pabumon (''Babumon''), a green blob with a pacifier.
** '''In-Training''': Motimon, a pink blob with arms. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Tentomon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Kabuterimon. A big blue beetle that shoots [[ShockAndAwe electricity]].
** '''Ultimate''': [=MegaKabuterimon=] (''[=AtlurKabuterimon=]''), A larger red version of Kabuterimon with a new horn and a shell on his back.
** '''Mega''': [=HerculesKabuterimon=] (''[=HerakleKabuterimon=]''), An even larger golden version of Kabuterimon, with a larger nasal horn and Kuwagamon-esque pincers as well, only seen in the Wonderswan games and PSP adaptation.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Everyone has a tough time fighting Andromon until Izzy notices sparks coming out of his leg. Kabuterimon zaps it, destroying a black gear.
* BadassBaritone: [=HerculesKabuterimon=] is made of this, fittingly enough, he's also the largest of the Mega forms.
* BigCreepyCrawlies
** GiantFlyer: Of all the final forms of the protagonists' Digimon, [=MegaKabuterimon=] is tied with Garudamon as the largest of the lot. Kabuterimon also tends to be portrayed as the largest of the Champion-level Digimon, though this tends to fluctuate somewhat between him and Birdramon.
* DeadpanSnarker: Results in some SnarkToSnarkCombat with Izzy.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: The dub doesn't try to adapt it into an English equivalent.
* IGotYouCovered: Sora rides with him so that Garudamon can attack Apocalymon without endangering her.
* IAmWhatIAm: Tentomon shoots down his partner's alien theory, then asks if there is some kind of secret about his origin. Unfourtunately for Izzy, this is an ArmorPiercingQuestion.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: While as Tentomon he has a pair of vestigial arms, Kabuterimon and [=MegaKabuterimon=] have a fully functional extra pair.
* NiceGuy
* ShockAndAwe: The originator of electricity being the go-to element for insect Digimon.
* TalkingToHimself: For a brief moment in the dub, when Izzy's parents find out about him.
* TheWatson: Izzy tends to have to explain what he's doing to him, and thus us.

!!Palmon

[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/palmon_995.jpg]]

Mimi's partner, a plant-like Digimon who perhaps [[IncrediblyLamePun is the steady roots to Mimi's flights of fancy]].

Her digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Yuramon, white fluff ball with a purple face.
** '''In-Training''': Tanemon, a green ball with legs and leaves. Blows Bubbles.

!! Gomamon

[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gomamon_2585.jpg]]

Joe's partner, a seal-like creature. The biggest {{Foil}} Digimon of the first season, with his optimistic and silly nature often clashing with Joe's much more serious nature. Despite his playfulness, Gomamon is level-headed enough know when to take risks and bright enough to keep Joe from giving in to despair.

His Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Pitchmon, a white fish-like creature.
** '''In-Training''': Bukamon (''Pukamon''), a floating grey seal. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Gomamon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Ikkakumon. A giant white walrus that fires torpedoes from his horn.

* DropTheHammer: Zudomon's Vulcan's Hammer.
* DynamicEntry: Late in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', Ikkakumon [[IAmYourOpponent shoots [=MarineDevimon=] when he isn't looking]], which pleases Angemon. As Ikkakumon rushes forward and leaps out of the water, there is a SmashCut into his Digivolution sequence.

** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: This still makes him more useful than anyone else in their Rookie forms.

!! Patamon

[[quoteright:219:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/patamon_7654.jpg]]

TK's partner, who starts off looking like a pig with wings, and the most childish of the Digimon. [[BewareTheNiceOnes And as it turns out, also the most powerful]].

His Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Poyomon, a white blob.
** '''In-Training''': Tokomon, a white critter with ''lots and lots of teeth''.
** '''Rookie''': Patamon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Angemon, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the angel monster]].

** '''Mega''': Seraphimon, fully clad in blue armor and with ten golden wings on his back.

* AngelicBeauty: His Digivolutions.
* {{Badass}}: Angemon was basically so powerful that he was one of the few Digimon who could give Myotismon a good fight, and even when fighting against ''Piedmon'' of all people, he managed to hold his own.
* BestForLast: The final partner to reach both Champion and Ultimate forms, probably because they were so broken. Interestingly, T.K. was the second [=DigiDestined=] to activate his crest.

* HandBlast: Angemon's Hand of Fate.
* HeadPet
* HeavenlyBlue: Seraphimon.

!!Kari Kamiya/Hikari Yagami

[[quoteright:201:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kari_5467.jpg]]

Tai's little sister, and the [[SixthRanger Eighth Child]], not that anyone knows it at first. Very [[ChildrenAreInnocent sweet, kind and innocent]], but also often wise beyond her years. She has the Crest of Light, which is [[MeaningfulName only fitting]].

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a kindergarten teacher.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/KaeAraki (JP), LaraJillMiller (EN)
----
* AffirmativeActionGirl
* AlliterativeName: Her dub name, "Kari Kamiya."
* BigBrotherWorship: Admires her brother, [[spoiler: and ends up feeling inferior to him in 02]].
* BigNo: When [[spoiler: Wizardmon is killed]].
* BigYes: When [=LadyDevimon=] is killed.
* BlessedWithSuck: Her power takes a physical toll on her.
* CheerfulChild
* ChekhovsGunman: It's mentioned early on that she was [[MissedTheCall too sick to go to summer camp with the other kids]]. Later, there's another episode actually involving her before the Myotismon arc really begins.
* DistaffCounterpart: To TK.
* FluffyTamer: In TheMovie, "Big Agumon" seemed less intelligent and more violent than Tai's Agumon, but he still let her ride around on his back.
* GodNeverSaidThat: Like most character names in the English dub, "Hikari" was shortened to "Kari." Unlike the others, however, no official material released in English has ever referred to her name in full as "Hikari 'Kari' Kamiya."
* HolyChild
* IllGirl: The current page image, in fact. She had pneumonia in ''Adventure'', and that's why she couldn't go to the class trip and [[MissedTheCall didn't join her fellow Digidestined until later]].
** In the English titled episode "My Sister's Keeper," she is sick and Tai recalls another time when she was sick.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Calls Taichi "oniichan."
* KindheartedCatLover: Has both a real-life pet cat and a cat Digimon.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Yes, she's the eighth child - this trope is so far in play that the PSP game trailer outright showcased her and her partner along with the others!
* LightIsGood
* LittleMissSnarker: And you can blame LaraJillMiller for that.
* MeaningfulName: "hikari" is Japanese for "light," and guess who has the Crest of Light?
** Kari also in some languages means "Pure" or "Pure One".
** NamesToTrustImmediately: This isn't done for irony, as with [[Manga/DeathNote another Light Yagami]].
* MissedTheCall: As mentioned above, she was ill. Coincidentially, her partner was in the hands of a BigBad by then, having been lost as an egg and taken in by Myotismon... which raises the question of what would've happened had Kari not missed the call and gone to the Digital World anyway.
* MysteriousWaif
* NaiveEverygirl: Subverted. She ''is'' sweet and kind and gentle, but tries her best to hold her own.
* PowerStrainBlackout: In episode 49, her little body can't handle the power that she emits. She is able to release enough power to call forth [=WarGreymon=], but she collapses.
* SixthRanger
* SuperEmpowering: In "The Crest of Light", allows Biyomon and Patamon to go Champion-level, Gatomon to go Ultimate, and Agumon to go Perfect, even though their previous attempts to digivolve failed (hilariously) due to exhaustion.

!! Gatomon (Tailmon)

[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gatomon_6804.jpg]]

-->''"I've waited my whole life to meet you and find my purpose, and that is to protect you, no matter what the cost."''

The last of the Digimon partners, who eventually partners up with Kari. The only partner who spends most of her time in Adult form (not that it's easy to tell) and her more frank toughness is rather a contrast to Kari's [[ChildrenAreInnocent youthful innocence]].

Her Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': [=YukimiBotamon=] ''([=SnowBotamon=])'', a [[PaletteSwap white version]] of Botamon.
** '''In-Training''': Nyaromon, a [[{{Cephalothorax}} yellow cat head]]. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Salamon (Plotmon), a white puppy.
** '''Champion''': Gatomon, her default form.
** '''Ultimate''': Angewomon, Angemon's DistaffCounterpart.
** '''Mega''': Magnadramon (Holydramon) in the movies, but later retconned to Ophanimon, Seraphimon's DistaffCounterpart, in DigimonBattleSpirit and the PSP adaptation of the anime.

* AngelicBeauty: Angewomon.
* BadassAdorable
* BareYourMidriff: Angewomon and Ophanimon.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Basically her backstory - being tormented for years led to her becoming Myotismon's leading henchmon. Prior to her defection, she seems to enjoy being a bitch.
* BittersweetEnding: More so than the other main digimon in the season finale. [[spoiler: Gatomon finally unites with Kari after years of waiting, only to be separated again. Forever ([[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 maybe]]). The other Digimon had months to get to know their kids; Gatomon only had a few days, most of which was spent trying to survive. On the bright side, she did complete her lifeís purpose - protecting Kari.]]
* BlushSticker: [=YukimiBotamon=] and Salamon.
* BrokenBird: The heaps of abuse dealt to her by Myotismon just because she had gentle eyes made her cynical and bitter, with Wizardmon as [[MoralityPet the only one whom she showed a bit of kindness to]]. Until she met Kari and became her partner, that is.

* CatFight: Appropriately enough, Angewomon vs. [=LadyDevimon=], on two occasions between this series and ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]''.
** And taken literally during her first appearance.
* CatFolk
* CatSmile
* ChainmailBikini: The little armor Angewomon wears consists of her helm and a breastplate. A "breastplate" which amounts to little more than a metal bra.
* CoolHelmet: Angewomon.
* CuteBruiser: ''WAY'' stronger than [[PintSizedPowerhouse she looks]].
* CuteKitten
* CuteLittleFangs
* TheDragon: Was one of Mytoismon's top lieutenants, capable of giving the heroes a good fight.
** CoDragons: Technically with [=DemiDevimon=], since they share about the same status within Myotismon's legion. However [=DemiDevimon=] is so underpowered, it's clear that Gatomon was the real Dragon.
* DeadPersonConversation
* DistaffCounterpart: Angewomon to Angemon.
* TheDogBitesBack: Perhaps if Myotismon hadn't made a habit of abusing her terribly, she wouldn't have [[spoiler:shot an arrow through his heart]].
* EnergyBow: Angewomon's Celestial Arrow.
* EvilCounterpart: Angewoman has one in [=LadyDevimon=], Devimon's DistaffCounterpart.
* FashionableAsymmetry: Angewomon.
* FingerlessGloves: Allows her claws to stick out.
* {{Flight}}: Angewomon.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Angewomon.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: The aforementioned evolutions have big feathery angel wings (of course).
* GuardianEntity: What drove her on in life: Knowing that she was meant to find and defend someone. And this is even before becoming [[GuardianAngel Angewomon]].
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Most humnaoid angel Digimon have blonde hair. It's one of their things.
* HiddenEyes: Angewomon's helm covers up her eyes. They do exist, and can be seen in her evolution sequence.
* HighHeelFaceTurn: Myotismon's only other female minion was a Dokugumon.
* HypocriticalHumor: Done in the dub, where she complains about one of her henchmon going on a rampage: "What's that big-eared freak trying to do?" Gatomon, I don't think you're in any position to call anyone a "big-eared freak".
* HypnoticEyes: Cat's Eye, which was only used once, in an episode of ''02''.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* KickTheDog: Or smack him with your tail...
* LadyOfWar: Angewomon. The grace gets really toned down a notch if the fight involves [=LadyDevimon=]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: And how! Before she met Kari, Gatomon only could remember her hatred against everyone and the brutal punishments she used to get at a daily basis. She even forgot about the day when she met Wizardmon! Of course, she got better.
* LightningBruiser: She managed to take on six Digimon on the same digivolution level easilly.
* LightEmUp
* LightIsGood: Upon re-discovering her memories.

* OlympusMons: Magnadramon, one of the [[DragonsUpTheYinYang Four Great Dragons]].
* OperaGloves: Angewomon has one.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Angewomon.
* PaletteSwap: [=YukimiBotamon=].
* TheParalyzer: Angewomon's Heavens Charm seems to have this effect on evil Digimon.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's a Champion level, but she's much smaller and more powerful than most of the other kids' partners! This is justified by her evolving naturally to her Champion stage while the others require the children's power to do so.
* ThePowerOfHate: What kept her going for most of her life.
* PowerSource: Her Tail Ring. Without, her strength is reduced to that of a Rookie.
* PreciousPuppy: Salamon.
* PungeonMaster: Downplayed, but being a cat digimon, the dub writters could not resist having Gatomon use alot of cat-related puns.
* RedemptionDemotion
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Nyaromon.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to [=DemiDevimon=]'s red, though she could also be seen as the red to Wizardmon's blue.
* RightHandCat: Literally for Mytoismon.
* ScarsAreForever: Has an X-shaped scar on her left paw from Myotismon, but it's normally covered by her glove. She has a glove on the same hand as Angewomon.
* SensualSpandex: Angewomon.
* SixthRanger
* TeamMom: Being more introverted and mature than most of the other Digimon, she has a tendency to herd them or provide insights into what's going on with the children.
* ThereIsAnother
* ThinkingOutLoud: Does this while observing on Kari, speaking her thoughts about her cloudy past. Wizardmon hears this, and asks her a question. Gatomon, not realizing she was thinking out loud, gets angry and tells him to stop reading her mind.
* TooManyBelts: Angewomon.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Salamon is named after dub producer Terri-Lei O'Malley's pet cat.
* WolverineClaws: Gatomon's claws, which are huge and stick out her gloves.
* ZenSurvivor: After taking years (if not decades) of brutal servitude, Gatomon ends up being wiser and tougher.

!!Gennai

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gennai_8951.jpg]]

An old man who lives in the Digital World, who actually admits to being made of data- essentially, he's like a Digimon, but with none of the powers or attributes of them. Appears to run the place from behind the scenes, or at least used to...

-->Voiced by: JoujiYanami (JP), Michael Reynolds (EN)
----
* AncientKeeper
* BigGood
* EccentricMentor: Mainly in the dub.
* TheMentor
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Dropping Gatomon's digi-egg and never bothering to look for it led to years of abuse and depression for the poor Digimon, not to mention her becoming an enemy of the very group she was meant to aid! He doesn't ever apologize for that screw-up, either.
* TheObiWan: He actually looks like a young Obi-Wan Kenobi!
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In one flashback episode that explains the origins of the digidestined, Piedmon is shown attacking the headquarters of Gennai's order. When Gennai attempts to fight back, Piedmon dodges around behind him and implants some kind of object into Gennai's back. This is never explained, nor is it mentioned again, although some suspect it to be the explanation for why Gennai looks like an old man in the first season.
** FandomNod: Koushirou's track in ''2-and-a-half Year Break'' has him briefly wonder what that object could have been... then immediately go back to talking about something else. You can almost ''hear'' the writers laughing at us.

!!Leomon

[[quoteright:191:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leomon_4293.jpg]]

A (at first) friendly wild lion-like Digimon who fights for the weak and helps the kids, though without entirely trusting them. He appears again during the Dark Masters Arc as the powerful [=SaberLeomon=]. [[spoiler: He dies protecting Mimi during a fight with [=MetalEtemon=], kickstarting the tradition of killing Leomon every time he shows up in a series.]]

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Champion''': Leomon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=SaberLeomon=], a large quadrupedial lion with sabre teeth.

-->Voiced by: HiroakiHirata (JP), Creator/PaulStPeter (EN)

* KingOfBeasts
* MartyrWithoutACause: Becomes his recurring purpose in each show.
* MegaNeko
* PantheraAwesome
* ReverseGrip: Wields his sword in this manner.
* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion: Quite literally as well as fitting the character type. He was also the first in the franchise's long RunningGag line of dead Leomon or evolutions thereof, though it didn't definitively start until ''Anime/DigimonTamers''.]]
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet]]: [[spoiler:Does this for Mimi, saving her from [=MetalEtemon's=] attack.]]
* TooManyBelts
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WorthyOpponent: To Ogremon.

!!Ogremon

[[quoteright:223:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ogremon_7153.jpg]]

Leomon's rival and foil, an uncouth brute with a sense of humour. As his name indicates, he resembles an ogre.

He joins up with Mimi and Joe during the Dark Masters Arc after he is beaten by [=MetalEtemon=].

-->Voiced by: HisaoEgawa (JP), Beau Billingslea (EN)
----
* AntagonistInMourning: He even says that if he did beat Leomon, he wouldn't know what to do with himself. [[spoiler: Then Leomon dies the same episode. Cue the waterworks from the goblin in leather. ''You were a good rival...'']]
* CarryABigStick
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He has an Ogremon Honor Code in the final arc, while back in the first arc he was simply evil and willing to do anything to stop the children, even threaten to hurt a baby Digimon!
* DarkIsNotEvil: Following his HeelFaceTurn.
* TheDragon: For Devimon.
* DumbMuscle
* HeelFaceTurn
* HonorBeforeReason: He only agrees to help Mimi and Joe because his own Honor Code says so, after they had saved him.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Again, after his HeelFaceTurn.
* NotBrainwashed: He was the only one who served Devimon out of his own free will.
* TheRival: To Leomon.
* WorthyOpponent: Again, to Leomon.

!!Whamon

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whamon_t_6068.gif]]

A gigantic sea animal Digimon the Digi Destined first encountered on their way to the Continent of Server. [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Under the influence of a Black Gear]] he swallowed the gang, but once freed, becomes a powerful ally in the Net Ocean.

-->Voiced by: Masafumi Kimura (JP), Peter Spellos (EN)
----
* {{Acrofatic}}
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: He happily returns in Adventure 02. Under the instruction of Joe, he saves most of the new DigiDestined from being trapped in an offshore oil rig, which was being attacked by a MegaSeadramon.]]
* BellyOfTheWhale: Where the children end up on their first encounter. At first its a rather hazardous place with stomach acids. Though later, the kids have no fear of him, as various parts of his vast body [[SapientShip become their very vessel and stealth submarine]].
* BiggerOnTheInside
* {{Cyborg}}: Izzy is able to hook his laptop up to his central nervous system and display on-screen what Whamon sees.
* ExtremeOmnivore
* EyelessFace: He has no eyes, yet can see just fine.
* [[spoiler:FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Metal Seadramon's attack rips a hole through his skull, fatally injuring him.]]
* GentleGiant: He's a big sweetheart [[SeaMonster even though he doesn't look it]].
* HeroesGoneFishing: The Digi Destined take a break from battling and travelling in a tropical bay, fishing from the great whale's back.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He repeatedly saves the kids from Metal Seadramon, though his efforts to protect them, cost him his life.]]
* LightningBruiser
* LivingShip: He's a temporary home and sanctuary for the kids, protecting them from the ocean's pressure-crushing depths and various attacking water Digimon working for Metal Seadramon.
* MonsterSobStory: [[spoiler:''Subverted'', since he's a sea monster, but not evil. As he slowly died from Metal Seadramon's River of Power attack, he implores the Digi Destined to save the world.]]
* MustMakeAmends: Even though it wasn't his fault, he feels terrible for smashing the children's raft and nearly digesting them. To make it up to them, he happily carries the gang across the ocean to Server.
* PunnyName: His name (and design) is derived from a real-life Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus).
* SwallowedWhole: Whamon was [[TheCorruption infected with a Black Gear]] and he swallowed the gang in his rampaging.

!!Pixiemon (Piccolomon)

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Piximon_7172.gif]]

A cute but powerful Digimon trainer living in a hidden oasis in the desert. He helps the Chosen Children train to combat Etemon.

* BarrierWarrior
* BigDamnHeroes: Is introduced this way and dies this way.
* BladeOnAStick: It's actually called Fairy Tale.
* HeroicSacrifice: Holds off the Dark Masters to let the kids escape. That's FOUR Megas (Ultimate Level) versus ONE Ultimate (Perfect Level).
** FacingTheBulletsOneLiner: "Just call me a crazy little Digimon."
* KillerRabbit: You wouldn't know it from looking at him, but he's an ''[[{{Badass}} Ultimate-Level Digimon.]]''

!!Wizardmon (Wizarmon)

[[quoteright:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wizardmon_7092.jpg]]

A minion of Myotismon who is more than he seems, and has strange powers even by Digimon standards. Gatomon's only real friend [[spoiler:(at first)]] who turns out to greatly influence the story.

-->Voiced by: Creator/AkiraIshida (JP), Robert Axelrod (EN)
----
* AWizardDidIt: Not JustForPun, but see ScarilyCompetentTracker below.
* [[spoiler:AlmostDeadGuy: Keeps himself alive to ensure that he fulfills his destiny.]]
* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:Survived attacks that would OneHitKill ''higher level Digimon'', defied the arc's BigBad and was the first to harm him in the final battle, though Wizardmon was unarmed, and took ''incredible amounts of damage'' before dying like a man, complete with FamousLastWords.]] See also his entry under CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** BadassAdorable
** BadassCape: Complete with InstantRunes.
* BlackMage: With various forms of BlackMagic.
* CallingYourAttacks: [[CombatMedic Averts]] [[CombatPragmatist this]] [[InTheBack when]] [[GenreSavvy necessary]].
* CatsAreMagic: An interesting variation, in that Gatomon is the cat associated with Wizardmon. Itís like a classic Wizard-Familiar relationship, except that they are good friends.
* CoatHatMask
* CombatMedic: He healed Lilymon from petrification. When he and Gatomon fight Myotismon in the PSP game, he knows a move that can heal 1000 HP.
* [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]
* [[spoiler:DeadPersonConversation]]
* [[spoiler:{{Determinator}}]]: Oh, yes indeed. See SquishyWizard below.
* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome]]
* [[spoiler:EccentricMentor: More so in the Japanese version.]]
* EnigmaticMinion
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[CaptainObvious Heís a wizard]]. Go figure. He plays most of the tropes associated with the fantasy archetype incredibly straight. Also note that this trope is subverted in the episode [[spoiler: named after him. We don't find out what "Wizardmon's Gift" is until he sacrifices himself for Tailmon and Kari.]]
* {{Expy}}: This Wizardmon gets an {{Expy}} in the future thanks to [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Sorcerimon]], who looks exactly like him (except for a PaletteSwap of blue and white instead of his OrangeBlueContrast), is AnIcePerson and more of a WhiteMage, [[spoiler:sacrifices himself]] in a similar way, and even [[spoiler:returns as a ghost]] in a similar way. Another actual Wizardmon also shows up in ''Frontier'', but has different powers, is a MonsterOfTheWeek, and has very little personality resemblance with this one.
* {{Fireballs}}
* {{Foil}}: To Gatomon [[spoiler:and Myotismon.]] Gatomon is his female counterpart, who is more of a physical fighter than a magical one, and with a tough personality but cute looks, all of which are the inverse of Wizardmon's traits. [[spoiler:Similarly, Myotismon is a tall, blonde, blue-eyed and menacing magic user with extreme toughness and power, but Wizardmon also has blonde hair, blue eyes, uses magic, is of smaller size, and his gentle ways, as well as his noble and honorable sacrifice, highlight their similarities and contrasting differences... and just how evil the vampire really was.]]
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Like a few members of Myotismon's crew, Wizardmon was able to walk in broad daylight without drawing attention to himself. He poses as a street magician, [[StageMagician producing balloons and doves with sleight of hand.]]
* FrothyMugsOfWater: In the Japanese dub, he bribes [=DemiDevimon=] with a bottle of Sake. In the English dub, this becomes "a bottle of green chili sauce".
* [[spoiler:HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: One of the first visual hints that heís not actually evil. Subverts BlondesAreEvil, too. Goes well with his blue eyes.]]
* HealingHands: He's the one who manages to cure Lilymon when she's petrified by Myotismon.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: For Tailmon and Kari]]
* HeroicSecondWind: He gets [[spoiler:''two'']] of these. [[spoiler:Notable in that it would take incredible speed for him to have been able to block the last, fatal attack with his body as a shield, after he was blasted several meters away and knocked down moments ago.]]
* HeroicWillpower
* [[spoiler:InTheBack: A rare, heroic example when he manages to draw first blood against Myotismon in the final battle. Also counts as an inversion of BackstabBackfire]]
* InstantRunes: He has a few in the inner parts of his BadassCape.
* IOweYouMyLife: Gatomon once saved him from starving to death and from his crushing loneliness. Ever since then, he became completely devoted to her.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Whilst Adventure 02 reveals he can sometimes appear as a ghost in the real world, he can never reconfigure in the DeathIsCheap manner other Digimon do due to dying in the real world.]]
* LipLock: One of the few Digimon characters completely immune to this. The only time we see his mouth we discover [[spoiler: that he has ''literal'' LipLock. His lips are stitched together. It doesn't prevent him from eating or speaking though.]]
* LonersAreFreaks: He was this before he met Gatomon, though he subverts the IneffectualLoner trope as well later on.
* MagiciansAreWizards: An interesting variation in that while he poses as a stage magician at first, [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself he still wears his full wizard outfit.]]
* MagicWand: Look closely and you'll see it's in the shape of a Digitama (Digi-egg), or a Tamagotchi. WordOfGod says it's a MythologyGag and a ShoutOut to the original Digital Monsters.
* [[spoiler:ManlyTears]]
* [[spoiler:MartyrWithoutACause: See also {{Expy}}. Generally he averts this by actually having something important to die for. Next to Leomon, however, heís the Digimon most likely to sacrifice himself.]]
* MoralityChain: For a long time, only his presence kept Gatomon from being a full-blooded villainess.
* MysteriousPast
* MythologyGag: See MagicWand, {{Expy}} and [[spoiler:MartyrWithoutACause]]. Also, in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', a Wizardmon and a Gatomon are seen together in a crowd in one episode, as a reference to the relationship of these characters in ''Adventure''.
* [[spoiler:NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Holy crap. No one can find the Eighth child? Found her ten minutes ago. Can't get there soon enough? Let's fly you over there. No one can heal Lilymon from petrification? Give me a challenge. No one can harm Myotismon? First blood. None of the superfast, superpowerful, Ultimate level Digimon can save Gatomon and Kari? Got there just in time. How did I do it? [[AWizardDidIt I'm magic]].]]
* NiceHat
* [[spoiler:NoOneShouldSurviveThat: Myotismon fails to kill him with his most powerful spells, which would be certain death to most Digimon beyond Wizardmon's level.]] [[spoiler: As {{Badass}} as Wizardmon is, though, it doesn't last forever.]]
* NoSelfBuffs: He could heal Lilymon, but apparently could not heal himself from the injuries caused by Myotismon.
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: A heroic version. Myotismon's rage and fear upon seeing him alive said it all.]]
* [[spoiler:TheObiWan: To Gatomon.]]
* [[spoiler:OurGhostsAreDifferent: Evidence suggests he's tied to the place where he died, unable to be reborn either because he died in the Real World, or because he's unable to move because he feels like he still has to protect Gatomon.]]
* [[spoiler:OurSoulsAreDifferent: See OurGhostsAreDifferent, though Wizardmon brings up the question on what a exactly Digimon's soul could be.]]
* OccultDetective
* OrangeBlueContrast
* PintSizedPowerhouse: See {{Badass}} for more info. He's about TK's size!
* PlatonicLifePartners: He and Gatomon were each other's only friends for a while. Needless to say they seemed quite close.
* PlayingWithFire
* PsychicLink: Gatomon thinks he can read her mind. Subverted, as it's really her ThinkingOutLoud.
* PsychicPowers: Specifically, levitation and mind-reading.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* TheRedMage: While most Digimon have one or two attacks and maybe one special ability, Wizardmon is arguably the most versatile character in the series. He could heal curses, fly unaided (or levitate, because he had various psychic powers), control the weather, dish out lightning and fire, and, in the English dub, read minds. Not to mention he was [[spoiler:incredibly hard to kill and could return as a ghost]]. Being based on Wizards as a fantasy concept, it's not a stretch to see he had a lot of different magical powers at his disposal. He's more of a BlackMage but has WhiteMage powers too. He gets even more powers in the ExpandedUniverse and in Anime/DigimonFrontier, including the ability to ''create copies of himself'' and produce ''[[IKnowWhatYouFear fear gas]]''. All of this on top of being a hunter, a spy, and an expert in stealth.
* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler:Averted. Unlike other good Digimon, he isn't reborn.]]
* RelationshipVoiceActor: If you're an unrepentant fangirl, this allows for a probably-unintentional-yet-still-amusing, very brief moment, when Matt's dad helps carry Wizardmon around. Ishida and Hirata's characters in ''{{Saiyuki}}'' do that for each other quite a lot...
* [[spoiler:ReverseMole: Proud of it, too!]]
* RobeAndWizardHat
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: He was the first one in Myotismonís crew to successfully locate Kari, then brought Gatomon to her. Take note, he was racing against an army of supernatural creatures while looking for her in ''Odaiba, Japan''. Thatís not easy. He also manages to locate the true Crest of Light. {{Handwaved}} by the fact that AWizardDidIt.
** The crest of light was in Myotismon's coffin. It wasn't that amazing that he knew where it was one. Also technically Gatomon was the first one to pretty much figure out that Kari was the 8th child.
* ShockAndAwe
* SinisterSilhouettes: His is clearly visible among Myotismon's army before they enter the portal to the human world. [[spoiler:He also gets another moment with this trope when he returns as a ghost in 02.]]
* SquishyWizard: [[spoiler:Subverted. He's small, but man, he took a ''lot'' of punishment before dying: surviving two OneHitKill attacks, being tossed into the ocean, blasted by magic into a wall by a superpowerful vampire and then using his body as a shield to block a third OneHitKill spell, and even lasting ''long enough after that to say his last words''. Also played straight in that he's a bit of a GlassCannon, but he manages to get up after he's been hit by something insanely powerful.]]
* StageMagician: He poses as one of these to avoid drawing attention to himself in the Real World.
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet: Is killed when he takes an attack meant for Gatomon and Kari.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Gatomon and Gatomon alone. [[spoiler:Well, Kari too, by extension.]]
* WhiteMage: With some WhiteMagic, namely immortality (see WizardsLiveLonger, below), invulnerability, and healing powers.
* [[spoiler:WhyWontYouDie: The outraged look on Myotismon's face in the final battle when he realized Wizardmon was still alive and powerful enough to hurt him was priceless.]] [[spoiler: Subverted when Wizardmon actually dies.]]
* WizardClassic: His English voice invokes this, sounding much older and wiser than the original Japanese.
* WildMassGuessing: Oh my. Wizarmon, more than any other Digimon in the fandom, is prone to this. What was his past really like? Where did he get his truckload of powers? What is it that makes him different from most Digimon? What was his relationship with Tailmon like? And most importantly, [[spoiler: Why wasn't he reborn? If it was because he died in the Real World, then explain Myotismon and why Gotsumon and Pumpmon's Spirits don't linger...]].
** Myotismon's spirit DID linger, he possessed Oikawa shortly after the kids returns to the Digital World. As for Gotsumon and Pumpkin there is no reason to believe that there spirits didn't linger but they had no means to or reason to communicate with the kids like Wizardmon did. And yes its pretty much made obvious that Digimon who die in the real world don't have their data reconfigured
* WizardsLiveLonger: [[spoiler: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged.]] First, heís a Digimon, and thus is technically TheAgeless, then heís ''supposedly'' killed by Vandemon, so you think he's dead, but comes back later, so you think he will live... and then he's killed off for real. THEN he returns as a ghost in the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' and is thus more immortal than most Digimon.]]
* {{Zipperiffic}}: Just look at his outfit!

!! Devimon

[[quoteright:202:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/devimon_2580.jpg]]

The first BigBad of the show, a fallen Angel Digimon who discovered the Black Gears, and used them to take over File Island. In his first encounter with the [=DigiDestined=] he was content to just separate them and allow those infected by the Black Gears to deal with them. When it came time to get his hands dirty, he absorbed all the remaining Black Gears and his Ogremon minion, and quickly overpowered the Chosen Children. It took Patamon Digivolving to Angemon for the first time to finally destroy him, though as he disintegrated he warned the heroes that were plenty of other, more dangerous villains out there. A bit later, it was revealed that he had hidden the Tags and Crests (objects that would allow the [=DigiDestined=]'s partners to Digivolve further) on the nearby continent of Server.

His "ghost" reappeared in the mysterious Dark Whirlpool in ''02'', and warned the Digimon Emperor not to trifle with the powers of darkness. Ignoring Devimon's words, the emperor captured his essence, and used it to add the finishing touch to his latest engine of destruction, Kimeramon. This proved to be a poor decision, as Devimon's evil corrupted the otherwise mindless Kimeramon.

The second BigBad, a anthropomorphic monkey whom the [=DigiDestined=] encounter on the mainland. Controls a Dark Network across the desert that amplifies his power and allows him to command many other Digimon, and proves to be surprisingly much harder to defeat than Devimon (and ''stay'' defeated).

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Ultimate''': Etemon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=MetalEtemon=], basically a silver [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin metal Etemon]] made out of hardest known substance known to Digimon.

* EvilVsEvil: Against Datamon. As [=MetalEtemon=], he gets into a brief fight with Puppetmon.
* {{Fartillery}}: One of his attacks as [=MetalEtemon=].
* HeroKiller: Due mostly due to being an Ultimate level Digimon while the heroes only had access to Champion level at the time. His Concert Crush being able to de-digivolve Digimon is another good reason.

* MusicalAssassin
* NighInvulnerable: Even before becoming [=MetalEtemon=] his ability to survive damage was unreal. He effortlessly shrugged off attacks from the gang's Digimon, being electrocuted had no lasting effects on him, and even being ''sucked into a black hole'' wasn't exactly fatal to him. And it gets taken even further when he becomes [=MetalEtemon=]. Though it's partially justfied in that he was an Ultimate Level Digimon.

** Also fitting beforehand. Despite his appearences, he's an Ultimate Level Digimon, while Devimon was only a Champion. He curb-stomps the kids' Champion-level Digimon with ease, has the rare power to de-digivolve Digimon, and becomes a reality-warper when he merges with the Dark Network, all of which makes him suprisingly dangerous.

!! Myotismon (''Vamdemon'')

[[quoteright:162:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/myotismon_3368.jpg]]

The third BigBad who proves far more dangerous than the others, and has designs on the real world as well as the Digital World. A rather classic [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] who can even pass off as human.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Ultimate''': Myotismon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=VenomMyotismon=] ''([=VenomVamdemon=])'', an utterly enormous humanoid devil with limited intelligence, buglike design overtones... and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a crotch monster]].

-->Voiced by: RyuzaburoOhtomo (JP), Creator/RichardEpcar (EN)

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [=VenomMyotismon=], the largest digimon in the series apart from Apocalymon.
* BadBoss
* BeastOfTheApocalypse: [=VenomMyotismon=], and they play it for all it's worth.
* BigBad: Of the third story arc and [[spoiler:all of ''Adventure 02'']]
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* BloodLust: In the digital world he normally feeds on data, but his time in the human world has unfortunately given him a taste for human blood...
* BloodyMurder: Yeah, "Crimson Lightning/Mist", yeah...
** Far more apparent in the original version, where they were called "Bloody Stream" and "Melting Blood", respectively.
* CameBackStrong: Each time he's seemingly killed off, he ends up brought back to life in an even more powerful form. [[spoiler: That is, until the Digidestined finally blow up his soul and kill him off for good.]]
* TheChessmaster
* DarkIsEvil
* DeaderThanDead: [[spoiler:The Digidestined finally kill him off for good by blowing up his soul.]]

* EvilOverlord: A classic example
* FauxAffablyEvil: At times.
* HeroKiller: Possibly the most notable one in the series, consistently defeating the heroes' high level evolutions. Not to mention [[spoiler:killing Wizardmon and causing the first death on the heroes' side.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His obsession with killing off the eighth [=DigiDestined=] caused him to end up bringing her partner to her. The very Digimon who ended up spelling his demise.
* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Japanese Vampire]]
* KickTheDog: Really, his entire existence is one long string of these.
* KnightOfCerebus: Boy howdy... This guy was practically toying with the heroes for most of his arc, frequently had them on the ropes, and introduced AnyoneCanDie into the series by being the first to murder sympathetic characters (his own minions, natch). Things only get darker until the series' conclusion.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Killing [[spoiler:Wizardmon resulted Gatomon digivolving into Angewomon and killing his first form.]]
* ManipulativeBastard
* MotiveRant
--> '''Myotismon:''' ''I planned to permanently fuse the Human World to the Digital World, so that, this way, I would rule over both worlds! '''[[ChewingTheScenery I DID WHAT I WAS DESTINED TO DO!!]]'''
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Like his foil Wizardmon, he to keeps getting new attacks. First the bats, fine, fine. A red streak, okay. Telekinesis, ummmm... alright? Wait, is [=MetalGreymon=] about to finally kill him? Nope, he can just stop attacks with a stare. Did Wizardmon just make an InTheBack attack? Too bad he can just throw it right back. And this is not counting his ability to come BackFromTheDead.
* NotQuiteDead
* OneWingedAngel: After being killed the first time, he comes back to life as [=VenomMyotismon=].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* ResurrectiveImmortality: Similar to most Digimon, but his case deserves special mention because he just isn't reborn as a Digi-Egg. Instead, his soul just kept coming back to life in a stronger form, first as [=VenomMyostismon=] and then in ''Adventure 02'' as [=MaloMyotismon=]. It takes [[spoiler:[[DeaderThanDead having his soul blown up]] by the [[AllYourPowersCombined combined light of every Digidestined on Earth]]]] to make him stay dead for good.
* ThemeSongReveal
* WeakenedByTheLight
* WeWillMeetAgain: This happens enough to annoy the heroes.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: As Venom Myotismon, he goes from his TakeOverTheWorld plans to just being a rampaging monster whose only thought is feeding and destroying everything in sight.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Very willing to kill off his minions. In the dub this was changed to [[NeverSayDie banishing them back to the Digital World]]. This seems a little odd considering the Dark Masters got away with killing off Digimon left and right.

!! The Dark Masters

->'''Piedmon:''' Those bit players are frozen with stage fright, hopelessly waiting for the moment they'll be saved. And yet, there's an unseen twist in the plot.\\
'''[=MetalSeadramon=]:''' I say we cut to the punchline and go straight for the action!\\
'''Puppetmon:''' Oh please, that would be boring. I want to play this drama to the hilt! Let's pull out all the stops and give them what they paid for.\\
'''Piedmon:''' I'm in complete agreement, a quick victory would be a letdown.\\
'''[[TheQuietOne Machinedramon]]:''' *eyes flash*\\
'''Piedmon:''' The [=DigiDestined=] will be on Spiral Mountain soon. We must rehearse before they get here. It will be the final performance! [=MetalSeadramon=], Puppetmon and Machinedramon, I present to you the downfall of the [=DigiDestined=]!

While the [=DigiDestined=] were on Earth combating Myotismon, these four Mega-level baddies ([=MetalSeadramon=], Puppetmon, Machinedramon and Piedmon) conquered the Digital World with their armies, and reshaped most of it into Spiral Mountain.

----

* AlienGeometries: Spiral Mountain.
* BigBadEnsemble: While they are a team, they have very little onscreen interaction, and don't seem to care all that much for each other, preferring to work alone, and not even being a bit perturbed when the [=DigiDestined=] start taking out members of the group. Notably, during all the times he is taunted for not having any true friends, Puppetmon doesn't once even try to claim the other Dark Masters are his friends.

** The Sanguine: Puppetmon.
** The Melancholic: Machinedramon.
** The Choleric: Piedmon.
* KnightOfCerebus: While Myotismon caused the series to take a serious turn, they take it even further, have already conquered the Digital World, nearly kill the [=DigiDestined=] in their first fight, and along the way kill several other minor characters.
* NoOntologicalInertia: Whenever a member of the gang was killed, their portion of Spiral Mountain evaporated.
* PatchworkWorld: Spiral Mountain.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: A cyborg sea serpent, a living marionette, a mechanical dragon, and a magical clown.
* TakeOverTheWorld: And by the time we see them, they've already succeeded. And it's hinted in the original Japanese version that they planned to do the same to the real world.

* ActionFigureSpeech
* BadBoss: Notably averted, as he's about the only BigBad in the first series not to be one. So long as you do your job right he's actually a pretty good boss. Yeah, he killed Scorpiomon, but only after he failed him rather severely, and was very willing to reward him with his favorite food for doing his job correctly. That said, he's pretty short-tempered and impatient at best, so he's still pretty evil.
* BreathWeapon[=/=]PlayingWithFire: Unlike other Seadramon, he breathes fire instead of ice.
* TheBrute
* ChromeChampion
* CombatPragmatism: His strategy on how to take care of the [=DigiDestined=], but since the other Dark Masters are sadists playing around with the VillainBall, he only got the chance during his few episodes. He even comes pretty close when he has Scorpiomon helping him, though because [[SpannerInTheWorks Joe and Mimi accidentally avoided his trap]] and beat Scorpiomon, his plan was thwarted.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [=WarGreymon=] drilled into his nose, through his body, and out his tail.

** "Ha! Farewell, [=DigiDestined=]! It was a rare pleasure knowing you - [[KillItWithFire MEDIUM RARE]]!"
* LeeroyJenkins: He prefers not to play with his food, just cook it.
* LightIsNotGood: So far, he's the only purely villainous main antagonist whose attribute has been Data, a type usually attributed to good Digimon.
* NighInvulnerable: "What was that, a love tap? I'm made of Chrome Digizoid too, you know! You can't hurt me that easily!"
* TheNoseKnows: "Do you smell something? There's the scent of [=DigiDestined=] in the current. Either that, or there's a bad patch of seaweed around here..."
* OnlySaneMan: Out of the BigBadEnsemble of [[MonsterClown Piedmon]], [[PsychopathicManchild Puppetmon]], [[RoboticPsychopath Machinedramon]], and himself, he seems to be the only one who isn't a sadistic psychopath.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
* PitifulWorms
* PragmaticVillainy: He's a pretty much a BenevolentBoss as long as you do your job right, rewarding Scorpiomon with clams (his favourite food) once the [=DigiDestined=] have been captured. Which is more than can be said for [[BadBoss the other Dark Masters]].

* KillItWithIce: Met his end via [=MetalGarurumon=]'s Metal Wolf Claw.
* LackOfEmpathy: Implied, but not outright stated, to be why he enjoys torturing and killing his playmates. A sympathetic example in some ways, as he truly does want friends but this makes it impossible for him to have true ones.
* LastVillainStand
* LivingToys
* LonersAreFreaks: A lot of his arc emphasizes his lack of true friends, despite his insistence that he has some. T.K. uses this to trick Puppetmon out of killing him.

It's revealing, for instance, that too often he has the [=DigiDestined=] in his power, but [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim constantly delays killing them]] because he wants to have some sadistic fun first.

* StupidEvil: Kills off his henchmen and allies, and decides to play around with the [=DigiDestined=] instead of finishing them off when he has the chance. Though there were two instances where he thought about just killing them all immediately, but both times he was talked out of it a minion (Kiwimon and Cherrymon, respectively).
* SweatDrop
* ThisIsADrill: Drill Nose.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Too bad he ran into Matt and [=MetalGarurumon=].
* VoodooDoll: He has some of the [=DigiDestined=].
* WeakButSkilled: He's certainly the physically weakest of the Dark Masters. [=MetalGarurumon=] one-shots him, and when confronting [=WarGreymon=] in one-on-one combat, he was clearly on the losing end until he resorted to using his puppet strings. Note, he's still physically stronger than the Ultimate-level Digimon, its just in comparison to other Megas his physical attributes seem a bit lower.

* AxCrazy: Despite his CreepyMonotone voice, he's no less unstable and insane than Puppetmon and Piedmon and some of his lines outright state he enjoys what he does.

* MechanicalLifeforms
* MixAndMatchMan: He is composed of random pieces of other mechanical Digimon.
* NotQuiteDead: Unlike the other Dark Masters, he survives (despite being onion sliced!) and combines with a Kimeramon to form Milleniumon. Note that despite being canon, it's never showed in the TV series and instead kicks off the plot of the Wonderswan game series starring Ryo.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: A large, wingless mechanical dragon.

Then he saves himself for last and [=WarGreymon=] by himself manages to score several effective hits on him and together the same two Megas he took out in one hit before come close to beating him, forcing him to turn them into keychains to avoid getting beaten. To drive the point further home, even their Ultimate level Digimon are able to put up a decent fight with him by that point. It's not that he got weaker, he's just as strong as before but they got tougher fighting the other three Dark Masters and their forces, catching up with him.

!! Apocalymon (''Apokarimon'')

[[quoteright:341:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Apocalymon_41.jpg]]

-->''"Do I frighten you?"''

A monstrous being that exists in a dark void outside the Digital World, he is kept at bay by a barrier known as the Wall of Fire. The physical manifestation of the anger, envy and resentment felt by early Digimon who died off due to their inability to adapt and Digivolve, his immense power spawned most of the evil in the Digital World, and is the cause of the time discrepancy between it and the Earth.

!! Diaboromon (''Diablomon'')

[[quoteright:237:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Diaboromon_777.jpg]]

-->''"[[CatastrophicCountdown Who can count backwards from ten?]]"''

A [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] bug-inspired Digimon, and the antagonist of the film ''Our War Game''. Spawned from a viral, internet-based Digi-Egg, Diaboromon came close to wiping out the [=DigiDestined=] and sparking World War III when he hacked into the Pentagon and launched nuclear warheads, though he was thankfully stopped JustInTime when [=WarGreymon=] and [=MetalGarurumon=] combined to form Omnimon.

Unfortunately, he just barely survived, and laid low until resurfacing years later in ''Revenge of Diaboromon''. Creating millions of Kuramon out of bits of his data, he sent them to Earth through emails, and after being destroyed once again by Omnimon, resurrected himself on Earth by having the little blobs join together in Tokyo Harbor to form his alternate Mega - Armageddemon. Easily thrashing both Omnimon and Imperialdramon, it looked like Armageddemon would live up to his name and cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, only for his opponents to combine their power and fatally would him. Armageddemon broke apart into a swarm of Kuramon, who were transported back online (where they were presumably deleted) by awed civilians' cellphones, made into gateways by the Digivices.

When it was released in English as apart of ''Film/DigimonTheMovie'', ''Our War Game'' and the unrelated ''Hurricane Touchdown/Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals'' were connected by having Willis be the one who created Diaboromon's egg. They also had the viral entity that corrupted Willis's partner Kokomon be the same one that was responsible for Diaboromon.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

* '''Fresh:''' Kuramon, a grayish-blue blob with a single red eye.
* '''In-Training:''' Tsumemon; still a cyclops blob, except now with antennae and claws.
* '''Rookie:''' Keramon, a maniacal insect-squid with flimsy hands, and lots of tentacles.
* '''Champion:''' Chrysalimon, a cocoon shaped form with spiked tentacles (never directly seen, but officially stated to be the adult stage for this line and individual)
* '''Ultimate:''' Infermon, an arachnid with retractable limbs, and an impenetrable shell.
* '''Mega:''' Diaboromon, his main form.
* '''"Super" Mega:''' Armageddemon, a monstrous, vaguely reptilian and multi-legged abomination.

!! Kuwagamon

A big red stag beetle, and the first Digimon encountered by the chosen children after they met their partners. He terrorized them, but when the Digimon partners digivolved to their Rookie stage and started to give him a beating, he resorted to knocking them, the [=DigiDestined=] and himself off the cliff they were on. Kuwagamon, even larger than before, later attacked Tai and Agumon in the deserts of Server before being killed by Pixiemon, and one appeared in the real world after [=VenomMyotismon=]'s defeat, knocking an airplane out of the sky. Whether this was the same one that appeared in the series premiere is left vague.

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shellmon_b_5093.jpg]]

-->''"There is no escaping! You're in my element now!"''

One of the only recurring antagonists that isn't in the employ of a major villain, Shellmon first appears in episode two and is defeated when Agumon Digivolves to Greymon for the first time. Later, he returns for revenge, but is sent retreating by Biyomon and Tentomon.

--> Voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawazu (JP), Tom Fahn (EN)

!!Bakemon

[[quoteright:161:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bakemon_t_1779.gif]]

First appears in episode 11, when the [=DigiDestined=] were separated, and Joe and Sora encounter a group in a cemetery. They are able to merge together to form a "Lord Bakemon". Later, many more are encountered in Myotismon's employ, working under Phantomon. As evil spirits, they are weak against faith.

The Lord Bakemon also holds the honor of being the first enemy to be destroyed by the children's Digimon rather than just made to retreat.

-->Voiced by: Keaton Yamada (JP), Michael Reisz (EN)

* BedsheetGhost
* {{Bowdlerization}}: In the original, Joe chanted Buddhist sutras to weaken the Bakemon; in the dub, this is changed to repeating the mantra "Bakemon, lose your power".
* ComMons
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* KingMook: Lord Bakemon
* KilledOffForReal: The first enemy Digimon to be killed. Earlier ones were simply unbrainwashed or sent somewhere far away.
* {{Mook}}s: During the Myotismon arc.
* RedRightHand: Lord Bakemon has wrinkled blue arms.
* ToServeMan: In their first appearance, the Bakemon want to eat Joe and Sora.
* VillainDecay: In their first appearance, they were more than capable of taking on the children's Rookie-level Digimon on their own, and it took the combined might of Birdramon and Ikkakumon to take down the Lord Bakemon even after it had been weakened by Joe's chanting. Come the Myotismon arc, the chanting itself is enough to incapacitate them, and the Rookies are easily taking on multiple Bakemon.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The first time they face the Bakemon, Joe uses mind over matter (the spiritual kind, not the telekinetic [[MindOverMatter trope]]) to weaken them. The second time? Sora does this ''by recording''. This might be a case of DubInducedPlotHole, as in the original Joe invoked Buddhist sutras which ''might'' still work even if being broadcasted via a recording if the words themselves hold power even without the faith of the speaker behind them.

!!Datamon (Nanomon)

[[quoteright:297:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DatamonArtwork_3115.jpg]]

An enemy of Etemon's, this robotic Digimon is completely unhinged. Was once a Vaccine type, but [[FaceHeelTurn became a Virus type]] after an attack from a powerful Virus type destroyed his logic circuits. Out for revenge against Etemon for sealing him in a pyramid. Kidnaps Sora and tries to create a copy of her so that he can use her crest and digivice against Etemon.

-->Voiced by: Hidenari Ugaki (JP), Eddie Frierson (EN)

* AIIsACrapshoot
* AntiVillain: In that he wants to defeat Etemon, but his methods are just unforgivable.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Fires his Plug Bombs into Etemon's Dark Network, causing it to grow and swallow him up.
* {{Revenge}}: His primary motivation against Etemon.
* SealedEvilInACan: Sealed by another villain, actually, and out for revenge.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries to do this to Etemon. Too bad it didn't take.
* WildCard: Not actually directly opposed to the [=DigiDestined=]; in fact they shared a common enemy and could easily have been allies if Datamon had just asked them for help instead of trying to use them.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: It's somewhat difficult to not feel sorry for him after all the things Etemon did to him.

!![=DemiDevimon=] ([=PicoDevimon=])

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DemiDevimon_t_638.gif]]

One of Myotismon's lackeys, stirs up trouble for the [=DigiDestined=]. Tries to steal their crests, inevitably ending up being the one to cause the crests to activate instead. Gets abused by Myotismon and the [=DigiDestined=] alike, culminating in [[spoiler:[=VenomMyotismon=] ''eating'' him]].

-->Voiced by: Kouki Miyata (JP), Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)

* AlasPoorVillain: He gets abused so much after failing against the [=DigiDestined=] every time that it's easy to sympathize with him, especially when [[spoiler:he gets eaten by [=VenomMyotismon=] at the end]].
* {{Bowdlerization}}: Aside from in "Sora's Crest of Love" where it was too important to the plot to cut out, his Demi Dart is cut out of the English dub due to its resemblance to a syringe, which carries an association with drugs.
* ChewToy: Constantly beaten up.
* CoDragons: He does technically share the Dragon status with Gatomon, and was able to give the Digidestined a run for their money before Tai came back. However, his ineffectiveness shows he's not quite up to the job, and is woefully underpowered comapred to Gatomon or Phantomon.
* DarkChick: Of Myotismon's minions, despite being male.
* DirtyCoward
* [[spoiler:[[DevourTheDragon Eating The Dark Chick]]]]: His eventual fate.
* EvilCounterpart: He's the Rookie form of Devimon. Guess which two Digimon beat him up most frequently (besides Myotismon himself)? Yep, Gatomon and Patamon.
* FamousLastWords: "Hey, hang on! What are you doing?!"
* FauxAffablyEvil
* HarmlessVillain: Aside from using a Demi Dart to hurt Biyomon, he doesn't seem to be able to do much on his own, so he pretty much has to rely on manipulating others and using other Digimon to do the dirty work. Not to mention, everything pretty much backfires on him, no matter what. Oh, and he's a Rookie-level Digimon. What else would you expect?
* TheImp
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Some may disagree whether he's sympathetic, but he's definitely comically ineffectual.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: For about five straight episodes, earning more and more ire from Myotismon every time.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Gatomon's blue.
* SmugSnake
* TalkingToHimself: Mostly avoided, but he does interact with Digitamamon, another of the Digimon that Prince voiced in the dub.

!!Phantomon

[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Phantomon_t_6775.gif]]

Myotismon's strongest underling, one of only four Ultimate-level Digimon to appear under his command (the others being SkullMeramon, Mammothmon and [=MegaSeadramon=]). First appears driving Myotismon's stagecoach; later reappears as the commander of the Bakemon army and also summons Tuskmon and Snimon to delay the children and smashes the recording that was weakening the Bakemon. Was caught in the crossfire when all eight [=DigiDestined=] Digimon attacked Myotismon, succumbing to Angemon's Hand of Fate.

-->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (JP), Dave Guerrie (EN)

* BattleButler: Could be seen as this, since he first appears driving Myotismon's stagecoach.
* TheDragon: After Gatomon defects, he becomes Myotismon's second in command. Phantomon leads Myotismon's armies and is right at his master's side during the final battle with the heroes. (Well, the final one before Myotismon came back in a more powerful form, anyway.)
* EnemySummoner: Does very little fighting for himself, using his army of Bakemon for most attacks and summoning Tuskmon and Snimon to battle Matt and Sora's Digimon.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Guerrie voiced Phantomon [[{{Homage}} in the style of]] Creator/BorisKarloff.
** But inverted in the Japanese version, where Sakurai gave him a high-pitched wail.
* {{Expy}}: [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} The Death to Myotismon's Dracula.]]
* KingMook: Of the Bakemon.
* SinisterScythe: He is based on TheGrimReaper, after all.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Could easily become this to viewers who aren't paying close attention. When the heroes' Digimon are all sending their attacks at Myotismon, Phantomon is off to the side and gets destroyed when Angemon uses his Hand of Fate.

A wise old Digimon who seems to be a friend of Puppetmon's. Sows dissension among the [=DigiDestined=], realizing that united, they would be too strong for Puppetmon, but warns Puppetmon to be cautious anyway. Puppetmon dislikes this "negative attitude" and [[BadBoss destroys him]] for it.

!!Taichi "Tai" Kamiya/Taichi Yagami
-->''"You can do it, and even if you can't, we won't think any less of you, man!"''

[[quoteright:462:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Tai_-_Image_5523.jpg]]

Tai is the first season's leader, and bearer of the Crest of Courage. He's a reckless blockhead at times, willing to jump into anything, and this gets him into serious trouble when he gets the idea in his head that, since the Digital World is digital, he can't be killed. The realization that this isn't the case freezes him right in his tracks, and when he overcomes it, he makes the proper jump from "not afraid" to "courageous." Despite his recklessness, he's a warm, encouraging guy, very friendly, and the team just doesn't work without him. In the English dub, he has a crush on Sora but this is non-existent in the original Japanese and his feelings for her have always been strictly platonic.

He comes from a normal family, living with his parents and little sister, Kari. Kari ends up being a major factor in his character development, as taking care of her forces him to mature from "courageous action guy" into "responsible leader."

[[spoiler:In the conclusion of 02, he and Agumon become ambassadors to the Digital World.]]

[[quoteright:449:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Matt_-_image_9621.jpg]]

Matt wants everyone to think he's a brooding bad boy, but he's actually rather sensitive. He has issues trusting people (himself most of all), and he's very overprotective of his younger brother, TK. This causes him to be very cautious (although not as cautious as Joe), which results in a lot of clashes with the get-out-and-go Tai. Despite (or perhaps thanks to) all this, his crest is Friendship. The Digimon Adventure PSP game reveals that he has a crush on Sora and believes himself to be competing with Taichi for her affections. Taichi and Sora are best friends and while the Sora has a crush on him, Taichi only sees her as a friend.

Matt's parents divorced sometime after the Greymon/Parrotmon fight in Heighten View Terrace, but before the first episode. According to the RadioDrama ''Two-and-a-half Year Break'', Matt was the one who decided that TK would go with their mother and he would live with their father. He doesn't have a great relationship with his parents, as he seems to feel abandoned by them. He has very low self-esteem, and seems to feel his only purpose in life is to watch out for TK--when TK starts feeling smothered by him, he's noticeably dismayed. However, with some encouragement from his partner, Gabumon, he was able to come to terms with his family's divorce, and returned in time to help save the team.

-->''"Don't worry about me, I'll be fine. I'm the only one who can do it."''

[[quoteright:409:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sora_-_Image_6.jpg]]

The group's mother figure, and owner of the Crest of Love. Sora is a sweet girl, but doesn't really see that aspect of herself very well. She spends most of her time mediating fights between Tai and Matt, and keeping the group in line. She doesn't always have the patience for it, but she tries anyway. In the English dub, Tai has a crush on her but this non-existent in the original Japanese. Our War Game! reveals that she had a crush on him but he didn't feel the same way.

Sora's relationship with her parents isn't great. Her mom is a very traditional, ladylike figure who wants her to take up flower arranging, while her father is a professor at a college in Kyoto and rarely home. Sora is convinced early on that her mother doesn't love her; it's not until she unconsciously begins treating Biyomon the same way that she realizes her mother just isn't good at expressing it. They make up during the Myotismon saga, when Sora's mom pulls a MamaBear on some Bakemon.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a fashion designer. She is married to Matt.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/YukoMizutani (JP), ColleenOShaughnessey (EN)
----
* ActionGirl
* ActorAllusion: Sora hilariously {{Lampshade}}s herself in a NoFourthWall session in one of the drama [=CDs=], where she complains about sounding like an "old lady." Though 38 (the age of Creator/YukoMizutani when she voiced Sora) doesn't seem to be ''that'' old, it certainly qualifies as DawsonCasting! In addition to this, another drama track consists of a radio show recording [=DJ'd=] by Sora, which alludes to how Yuko Mizutani ran a radio show years back.
* AllWomenAreLustful: Swiftly becomes attracted to Yuri in ''02''[='=]s World Tour arc, breaking down in tears alongside Yolei when she can't take him up on his offer of dinner. [[spoiler:Note that this comes a few episodes after she starts dating Matt]].
* BettyAndVeronica: In the English dub, she's the Archie to Matt's Betty and Tai's Veronica. [[spoiler: The former won.]]
* {{Chickification}}: Played with. In ''Digimon Adventure'', she was feisty and strong, and took pride in doing things by herself and not needing to be rescued. In ''Adventure 02'', she loves to get hit with the DistressBall (see below). It's not complete, though, as she still has her moments when she's shown to be a capable fighter, as when she's fighting alongside the Russian [=DigiDestined=], though even there she and Miyako needed to be rescued.
* CoolBigSis: To Mimi, TK and [[spoiler:Kari]].
* DistressBall: The former poster girl for this trope.
* GirlinessUpgrade: Used to love soccer and despised her mom's plan for her to study flower-arranging. By ''Adventure 02'', has traded soccer for tennis and has gladly taken up flower-arranging.

* GratuitousEnglish: Tends to use a few English phrases from time to time in the original Japanese version.
* TheHeart
* TheNotLoveInterest: To Taichi. Although the English dub for 01 created ShipTease between the two and she is more of a straightforward love interest.
* [[spoiler: HappilyMarried: WordOfGod has confirmed that she ends up in loving marriage with Yamato.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Spends several episodes of the first series in the middle of one of these.
* HeroesWantRedheads: In the English dub she is in a love triangle with Tai and Matt. In the original Japanese, this trope would only apply to Yamato because Taichi never had any interest in her.

* NiceHat: Oddly, it's a helmet in one episode and cloth in another.

!!Izzy Izumi/ Koushirou Izumi
-->''"Prodigious!"''

[[quoteright:406:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Koushiro_-_Image_3327.jpg]]

Basically, Izzy is the one who can actually think his way out of a paper bag, which is only supported by his Crest of Knowledge. He's very curious and logical, and somewhat unsure of himself socially. He carries around a laptop computer, and his reactions to various problems are nearly always a variation on "If I learn enough, I can fix it."

Izzy is [[spoiler:adopted]]. His [[spoiler:biological parents died when he was very young, and his father's cousins adopted him, having recently lost a child of their own. They kept this a secret from him, but he accidentally heard them talking about it, and was devastated]]. After this, Izzy sank himself into his computer as an escape, probably to learn everything he could. At the same time, he loves his parents deeply and is very well-behaved for them.

Thanks to CharacterDevelopment and [[TellMeAboutMyFather a talk with his parents]], Izzy is able to overcome his withdrawn personality better, so that he then can help Tai out of his depression over [[spoiler:Kari falling ill]] during the Dark Masters Arc.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, he has set up a research team to study more of the Digital World.]]

->Voiced by: Umi Tenjin (JP), Creator/MonaMarshall (EN)
----
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlliterativeName: In the English version.
* BadLiar: Izzy tends to babble nervously, laugh awkwardly, and come up with weak sounding stories when he is placed on the spot and he is asked questions that he canít answer.
* CharacterExaggeration: His "computer nerd" status was exaggerated quite early in the dub. They even had him theorize about ''aliens''.
* ChekhovsBoomerang: In a world made of digital information, Izzy's [=PiBook=] Laptop is priceless. [[spoiler: The Digimon Analyzer reveals that [=WarGreymon=] has Dramon Destroyer weapons, which allow him to destroy [=MetalSeadramon=] and Machinedramon.]]
* ChildProdigy: Prodigious!

* DeadpanSnarker: In the dub, Izzy tends to bring the snark in most conversation, especially if he is explaining something to either Tai or Davis.
* DoingResearch: The kids would never have gotten very far without Izzy's laptop. It does 98% of everything in the series except digivolve, be a digivice and induce the character development of traits that the digidestined need.
* DelusionsOfEloquence: The English dub gave him a CatchPhrase of "Prodigious!", but rarely, if at all, does he ever say it in a context where said word makes sense. Notably, nobody ever actually calls him out on this.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Orange boxers.
* [[spoiler: HappilyAdopted]]
* IneffectualLoner: Inverted, Digivolutions and one-time circumstances aside, he gets more done on his own than the rest of the team combined

[[quoteright:420:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Mimi_-_Image_8253.jpg]]

She's [[TheChick the girl]], basically. Somewhat prissy and spoiled, she doesn't always seem to "get" the situation, and is sometimes rather selfish without really realizing it. Often considered the weakest character in the English dub due to her more girly elements being [[CharacterExaggeration overplayed in translation]]. She matures into a kind, sweet, pacifistic figure, befitting her status as holder of the Crest of Sincerity/Purity. However, once she realizes how high the stakes are, she breaks down and refuses to continue, but comes to realize that some fights simply must be fought.

Mimi's family life isn't delved into much. Her parents are hopelessly in love and, like her, not always fully in-tune--but when the danger is ramped up, they prove very brave.

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a famous chef with her own TV show.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/AiMaeda (JP), Creator/PhileceSampler (EN)

* LostInTranslation: her crest in Japanese is Purity which has different connotations from Shinto. Some other related tropes would be ThisIsUnforgivable and Kawaisa.
* LimitedWardrobe: In the second season, Mimi becomes one of the most noticeable aversions to this trope in the entire franchise, changing her clothes and hairstyle at least four times over the course of the season.

* SpoiledSweet: Has to grow into it, but once she does, she handles herself ''beautifully.''
* TenMinuteRetirement: After seeing several Digimon die for them, she's so distraught that she decides to temporarily stay put to not be a burden to the others. She gets better with time and rejoins the group with reinforcements.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Sora's Tomboy.
* UnlimitedWardrobe: Has the most costume and hair-style changes out of all the other characters in ''02''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Early character design sketches in ''02'' showed a lot more alternate outfits Mimi would have. Thankfully, some of them didn't make it into the final draft, and the most unfortunate we got was the one with the FunnyAfro.

-->''"I tried positive thinking once. I was positive about one thing: I positively hated it!"''

Because he's the oldest, Joe thinks he should be the responsible one and take care of the other kids--too bad he's a total pushover with no self-esteem. He's cut deeply whenever he realizes that people think of him this way, and tries to make up for it with acts of reckless selflessness that make Tai look positively cowardly. Perhaps the closest thing to a father figure in season one. His crest is that of Reliability.

Joe's family isn't a big focus, either--it's worth noting that, out of the 12 Digidestined in the first two seasons, his parents are the only ones never shown on-screen. His father is quite strict, being a doctor who wants all of his sons to be doctors, too. Joe's two older brothers, Shin and Shuu, rebelled in their own ways, while Joe is (as always) indecisive.

* NerdGlasses
* NervousWreck: He mellows out in 02 as he matures.
* OddFriendship: With Gomamon.
* OnlySaneMan: Or at least he thinks he is at first. One of the reasons why he was such a stick-in-the-mud at the beginning; he thought he was just being reasonable and that the others were actually putting themselves in danger by being irrational, making it his job to look out for them. This attitude wears off in time.
* PapaWolf: He's a big wuss until one of the other kids is in trouble. Then the badass comes out. See TheSoCalledCoward.
* ThePowerOfTrust: Faithfulness/Reliability, actually. As in, he's the one you're supposed to have faith in.
* TheReliableOne: Crest of Reliability!

* SicklyNeuroticGeek: In the dub.
* TheSoCalledCoward: Jumping off roofs and mountainsides is badass, okay?
** WebVideo/JesuOtaku even stated that Joe is always vouching for the safest route, choice, etc...yet always the first to throw his own body at these monsters. Because all Joe cares about is everyone's safety, she stated that even when the Mega level Digimon Piedmon is bearing down on them, you knew what Joe was going to do even before it happened-trying to get the other kids out of there without any regards to his safety. Joe is the ''real'' badass of ''Digimon''!
* TalkingToHimself: Joe, his two older brothers, and his [[AllThereInTheManual CD drama-only]] parents are all voiced by Masami Kikuchi. Including his ''mother''. Indeed, a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Mr. Kikuchi--one interview with him and Koushirou's seiyuu, Umi Tenjin, talks about how surprised the other actors were when he switched between all of the characters in real time.

!!Agumon

[[quoteright:204:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agumon_5007.jpg]]

Tai's Digimon partner, who resembles an orange baby Tyrannosaurus. Like most, he has a personality similar to his Digidestined partner, if a little less hot-headed. Like the Digimon of later series' leaders, he is almost always the first to discover the next upgrade of the season and is generally the most powerful. He has the distinction of personally destroying three {{Big Bad}}s all by himself.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Botamon, a small mon covered in black fur, with yellow eyes.
** '''In-Training''': Koromon, a round, pink mon, with long ears, red eyes, and sharp teeth. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Agumon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Greymon. Essentially Agumon, but proper dinosaur size, and a massive fire attack.
** '''Ultimate''': [=MetalGreymon=]. Greymon, with added mecha-armor and wings.
*** He also accidentally dark-evolved into [=SkullGreymon=], a skeletal dinosaur with a nuclear missile attached to its back, when Tai tried to force the evolution.
*** A viral and [[AllThereInTheManual undead]] version of [=MetalGreymon=] appeared in ''02'' when the Digimon Emperor captured Greymon and made him Digivolve with his Dark Digivice.

!!Gabumon

[[quoteright:163:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gabumon_1920.jpg]]

Matt's partner, a horned yellow reptile-like Digimon who, rather oddly, appears to wear a skin of white fur rather than having a natural coat. Something of a milder {{Foil}} to Matt, he often criticizes his selfish moments but sticks by him regardless.

[[spoiler: Also, the first [[IncrediblyLamePun mon]] on Mars at the end of 02.]]

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Punimon, a red blob with three headbumps.
** '''In-Training''': Tsunomon, a round, orange-furred mon with one, knife-like horn. Blows Bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Gabumon, his default form.

* CanisMajor: Garurumon is bigger than most automobiles.
* CrossdressingVoices: Japanese and Latin-American versions only
* {{Cyborg}}: [=MetalGarurumon=] is a smaller, cyborg version of Garurumon
* DontLookAtMe: He doesn't like to be seen without his pelt.
* FurAgainstFang: When he goes one-on-one with Myotismon, it seems to invoke this trope. Unfortunately for him the fang half seems to be far more powerful...
* InformedFlaw: [[AllThereInTheManual Much of the Japanese supporting material]] claims that [=WereGarurumon=] is slower than Garurumon because it is a biped. You certainly wouldn't know that [[LeParkour watching him go in ''Adventure'']].
* KiAttacks: [=WereGarurumon's=] Wolf Claw and Garuru Kick can be used in this fashion to give him ranged attacks

!!Biyomon (Piyomon)

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/biyomon_8790.jpg]]

Sora's pink-feathered bird-like partner, who often causes her some angst with her loyalty and gentleness. More than a bit hyper.

Her digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Nyokimon, a small black mon with two leaves popping from the top.
** '''In-Training''': Yokomon (Pyokomon), a pink blob with a big blue flower. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Biyomon, her default form.

** '''Mega''': Hououmon/Phoenixmon. A golden, four-winged phoenix, only seen in the Wonderswan games and PSP adaptation.

->Voiced by: Katori Shigematsu (JP), Tifanie Christun (EN)
----
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She wears a ring around her leg. Her Mega does as well, bearing a Holy Ring on each leg.
** The ring sort of resembles an ID tag that naturalists usually place on birds to track them down after rescuing them.
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: Garudamon.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: [[CallingYourAttacks Spiral Twister!]]
** In the original, it's just called "Magical Fire".
* GenkiGirl
* GiantFlyer: When evolved. It's worth noting that of all the final forms of the protagnists' Digimon, Garudamon is tied with [=MegaKabuterimon=] as the largest of the lot.
* LoveFreak: At least when it comes to Sora.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Birdramon, who is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a cross between a bird and a dragon]].
* NoisyNature: As Birdramon, she's prone to letting out a loud avian shriek.
* NonmammalianHair: Garudamon has long (valkyrie?) braids but is otherwise clearly a bird-mon.
* ThePhoenix
* PlayingWithFire: Biyomon, Birdramon, and Garudamon all have fire based attacks as their main weapons.
* PollyWantsAMicrophone
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Not as obvious as with Izzy, but you'll notice her speech patterns are more antiquated than the other Digimon.
* TechnicolorFire: Her Spiral Twister/Magical Fire attack.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Pink? Check. Jewelry? Check. Hair like structure? Check. Long blonde hair, in Garudamon's case? Check. Yeah, she's a girl.
* VerbalTic: "-piyo"
* WindIsGreen: Her "Spiral Twister"/"Magical Fire" ability, which basically looks like a flaming green hurricane.

!!Tentomon

[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tentomon_7019.jpg]]

Izzy's partner, who resembles a red winged robotic insect (''tentoumushi'' means "ladybug"). Not as brainy as his partner, but sometimes with a little more common sense. Tends to rein in Izzy when his [[ForScience quest for knowledge]] goes a bit too far.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Pabumon (''Babumon''), a green blob with a pacifier.
** '''In-Training''': Motimon, a pink blob with arms. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Tentomon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Kabuterimon. A big blue beetle that shoots [[ShockAndAwe electricity]].
** '''Ultimate''': [=MegaKabuterimon=] (''[=AtlurKabuterimon=]''), A larger red version of Kabuterimon with a new horn and a shell on his back.
** '''Mega''': [=HerculesKabuterimon=] (''[=HerakleKabuterimon=]''), An even larger golden version of Kabuterimon, with a larger nasal horn and Kuwagamon-esque pincers as well, only seen in the Wonderswan games and PSP adaptation.

->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (JP), Creator/JeffNimoy (EN)

* AttackItsWeakPoint: Everyone has a tough time fighting Andromon until Izzy notices sparks coming out of his leg. Kabuterimon zaps it, destroying a black gear.
* BadassBaritone: [=HerculesKabuterimon=] is made of this, fittingly enough, he's also the largest of the Mega forms.
* BigCreepyCrawlies
** GiantFlyer: Of all the final forms of the protagonists' Digimon, [=MegaKabuterimon=] is tied with Garudamon as the largest of the lot. Kabuterimon also tends to be portrayed as the largest of the Champion-level Digimon, though this tends to fluctuate somewhat between him and Birdramon.
* DeadpanSnarker: Results in some SnarkToSnarkCombat with Izzy.
* KansaiRegionalAccent: The dub doesn't try to adapt it into an English equivalent.
* IGotYouCovered: Sora rides with him so that Garudamon can attack Apocalymon without endangering her.
* IAmWhatIAm: Tentomon shoots down his partner's alien theory, then asks if there is some kind of secret about his origin. Unfourtunately for Izzy, this is an ArmorPiercingQuestion.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: While as Tentomon he has a pair of vestigial arms, Kabuterimon and [=MegaKabuterimon=] have a fully functional extra pair.
* NiceGuy
* ShockAndAwe: The originator of electricity being the go-to element for insect Digimon.
* TalkingToHimself: For a brief moment in the dub, when Izzy's parents find out about him.
* TheWatson: Izzy tends to have to explain what he's doing to him, and thus us.

!!Palmon

[[quoteright:164:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/palmon_995.jpg]]

Mimi's partner, a plant-like Digimon who perhaps [[IncrediblyLamePun is the steady roots to Mimi's flights of fancy]].

Her digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Yuramon, white fluff ball with a purple face.
** '''In-Training''': Tanemon, a green ball with legs and leaves. Blows Bubbles.

* CombatTentacles: Palmon's Poison Ivy attack.
* {{Fanservice}}: See above.
** TakenForGranite: once as Lillymon. Wizardmon heals her.
* FragileSpeedster / GlassCannon: As Lillymon. She can't take too much punishment, and her physical strength is actually lower than her champion stage, but she's so fast and has suprisingly powerful attacks that make her a force to be reckoned with.
* GreenThumb
* PlantAliens
* PlantPerson: Lillymon
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Lillymon
* SpikeShooter: As Togemon, with her needle storm.
* RedBoxingGloves: As Togemon

!! Gomamon

[[quoteright:214:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gomamon_2585.jpg]]

Joe's partner, a seal-like creature. The biggest {{Foil}} Digimon of the first season, with his optimistic and silly nature often clashing with Joe's much more serious nature. Despite his playfulness, Gomamon is level-headed enough know when to take risks and bright enough to keep Joe from giving in to despair.

His Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Pitchmon, a white fish-like creature.
** '''In-Training''': Bukamon (''Pukamon''), a floating grey seal. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Gomamon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Ikkakumon. A giant white walrus that fires torpedoes from his horn.

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Zudomon's belts.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AnIcePerson: Ikkakumon's Northern Lights in the PSP game.
* AtlantisIsBoring: Gomamon's Marching Fishes attack is used very scarcely across the entire series; when it is used, it certainly proves to be incredibly useful for traversing water.
* BadassMoustache: Zudomon.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: The joker of the group, yet his Ultimate form has a weapon that can damage Chrome Digizoid, a nearly indestructable metal.
* CuteLittleFangs
* DropTheHammer: Zudomon's Vulcan's Hammer.
* DynamicEntry: Late in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', Ikkakumon [[IAmYourOpponent shoots [=MarineDevimon=] when he isn't looking]], which pleases Angemon. As Ikkakumon rushes forward and leaps out of the water, there is a SmashCut into his Digivolution sequence.

* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Throwing his hammer is what allowed Zudomon to wound [=MetalEtemon=].
* TooManyBelts: Zudomon.
* TurtlePower: Zudomon.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Marching Fishes... summons fish. Not even ''[[SummonBiggerFish big]]'' [[SummonBiggerFish fish.]] It's used maybe three times over the entire series (though twice in the first three episodes to get the team moving when near water).
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: This still makes him more useful than anyone else in their Rookie forms.

!! Patamon

[[quoteright:219:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/patamon_7654.jpg]]

TK's partner, who starts off looking like a pig with wings, and the most childish of the Digimon. [[BewareTheNiceOnes And as it turns out, also the most powerful]].

His Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': Poyomon, a white blob.
** '''In-Training''': Tokomon, a white critter with ''lots and lots of teeth''.
** '''Rookie''': Patamon, his default form.
** '''Champion''': Angemon, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the angel monster]].
** '''Ultimate''': [=MagnaAngemon=]([=HolyAngemon=]), Angemon with purple armor, a sword, and the power to [[StoryBreakerPower beat anything]].
** '''Mega''': Seraphimon, fully clad in blue armor and with ten golden wings on his back.

-> Voiced by: Miwa Matsumoto (JP), Laura Summer (EN)

* AngelicBeauty: His Digivolutions.
* {{Badass}}: Angemon was basically so powerful that he was one of the few Digimon who could give Myotismon a good fight, and even when fighting against ''Piedmon'' of all people, he managed to hold his own.
* BestForLast: The final partner to reach both Champion and Ultimate forms, probably because they were so broken. Interestingly, T.K. was the second [=DigiDestined=] to activate his crest.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Angemon is generally kind and caring, but he has no patience for evil doers.

* CrossdressingVoices: As you can see, Joe, Matt and Tentomon are the only male characters voiced by men in the Japanese version this season.
* CueTheFlyingPigs: Well, not ''literally,'' but considering his picture, the stuff he pulls off comes across as pretty damned unlikely.
* EarWings
* EleventhHourSuperpower: He digivolves into [=MagnaAngemon=] near the end of the series before Piedmon's defeat and the upcoming battle afterwards.
* TheFaceless: Seraphimon.
* {{Flight}}
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Angemon and [=MagnaAngemon=].
* GoodWingsEvilWings: His evolutions have the expected feathery angel wings, but Patamon himself has bat-like wings typically associated with evil beings.

* HandBlast: Angemon's Hand of Fate.
* HeadPet
* HeavenlyBlue: Seraphimon.
* HeroicSacrifice: Angemon used all his power to defeat Devimon, thus reverting him back to a Digiegg.
** BadassBoast: In the dub, Angemon tries to deflect attention from the sacrifice by assuring T.K. that he'll win.
** LampshadeHanging: In one audio drama, he yells out, "I want to evolve every week like everyone else!"
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Voice!]]: [[TheRealGhostbusters Janine you've changed once again!]]
* HolyHandGrenade: Extremely strong against undead and demonic opponents... which tend to fill the role of BigBad in this season.
* InnocentBlueEyes

* LaserBlade: [=MagnaAngemon=]'s Excalibur.
* LightEmUp
* LightIsGood
* LoinCloth: Angemon and Seraphimon.

From an ElementalRockPaperScissors perspective, the whole line also qualifies as this; holy attacks are specially effective against undead or demonic opponents, such as Devimon, Phantomon, Myotismon or Piedmon. This is downplayed in the second season, even when he's fighting Digimon he should have a clear advantage over.

!!Kari Kamiya/Hikari Yagami

[[quoteright:201:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kari_5467.jpg]]

Tai's little sister, and the [[SixthRanger Eighth Child]], not that anyone knows it at first. Very [[ChildrenAreInnocent sweet, kind and innocent]], but also often wise beyond her years. She has the Crest of Light, which is [[MeaningfulName only fitting]].

[[spoiler: In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a kindergarten teacher.]]

->Voiced by: Creator/KaeAraki (JP), LaraJillMiller (EN)
----
Spoilers]]
* AffirmativeActionGirl
* AlliterativeName: Her dub name, "Kari Kamiya."
* BigBrotherWorship: Admires her brother, [[spoiler: and ends up feeling inferior to him in 02]].
* BigNo: When [[spoiler: Wizardmon is killed]].
* BigYes: When [=LadyDevimon=] is killed.
* BlessedWithSuck: Her power takes a physical toll on her.
* CheerfulChild
* ChekhovsGunman: It's mentioned early on that she was [[MissedTheCall too sick to go to summer camp with the other kids]]. Later, there's another episode actually involving her before the Myotismon arc really begins.
* DistaffCounterpart: To TK.
* FluffyTamer: In TheMovie, "Big Agumon" seemed less intelligent and more violent than Tai's Agumon, but he still let her ride around on his back.
* GodNeverSaidThat: Like most character names in the English dub, "Hikari" was shortened to "Kari." Unlike the others, however, no official material released in English has ever referred to her name in full as "Hikari 'Kari' Kamiya."
* HolyChild
* IllGirl: The current page image, in fact. She had pneumonia in ''Adventure'', and that's why she couldn't go to the class trip and [[MissedTheCall didn't join her fellow Digidestined until later]].
** In the English titled episode "My Sister's Keeper," she is sick and Tai recalls another time when she was sick.
* JapaneseSiblingTerminology: Calls Taichi "oniichan."
* KindheartedCatLover: Has both a real-life pet cat and a cat Digimon.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Yes, she's the eighth child - this trope is so far in play that the PSP game trailer outright showcased her and her partner along with the others!
* LightIsGood
* LittleMissSnarker: And you can blame LaraJillMiller for that.
* MeaningfulName: "hikari" is Japanese for "light," and guess who has the Crest of Light?
** Kari also in some languages means "Pure" or "Pure One".
** NamesToTrustImmediately: This isn't done for irony, as with [[Manga/DeathNote another Light Yagami]].
* MissedTheCall: As mentioned above, she was ill. Coincidentially, her partner was in the hands of a BigBad by then, having been lost as an egg and taken in by Myotismon... which raises the question of what would've happened had Kari not missed the call and gone to the Digital World anyway.
* MysteriousWaif
* NaiveEverygirl: Subverted. She ''is'' sweet and kind and gentle, but tries her best to hold her own.
* PowerStrainBlackout: In episode 49, her little body can't handle the power that she emits. She is able to release enough power to call forth [=WarGreymon=], but she collapses.
* SixthRanger
* SuperEmpowering: In "The Crest of Light", allows Biyomon and Patamon to go Champion-level, Gatomon to go Ultimate, and Agumon to go Perfect, even though their previous attempts to digivolve failed (hilariously) due to exhaustion.

!! Gatomon (Tailmon)

[[quoteright:240:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gatomon_6804.jpg]]

-->''"I've waited my whole life to meet you and find my purpose, and that is to protect you, no matter what the cost."''

The last of the Digimon partners, who eventually partners up with Kari. The only partner who spends most of her time in Adult form (not that it's easy to tell) and her more frank toughness is rather a contrast to Kari's [[ChildrenAreInnocent youthful innocence]].

Her Digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Fresh''': [=YukimiBotamon=] ''([=SnowBotamon=])'', a [[PaletteSwap white version]] of Botamon.
** '''In-Training''': Nyaromon, a [[{{Cephalothorax}} yellow cat head]]. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Salamon (Plotmon), a white puppy.
** '''Champion''': Gatomon, her default form.
** '''Ultimate''': Angewomon, Angemon's DistaffCounterpart.
** '''Mega''': Magnadramon (Holydramon) in the movies, but later retconned to Ophanimon, Seraphimon's DistaffCounterpart, in DigimonBattleSpirit and the PSP adaptation of the anime.

* AngelicBeauty: Angewomon.
* BadassAdorable
* BareYourMidriff: Angewomon and Ophanimon.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Basically her backstory - being tormented for years led to her becoming Myotismon's leading henchmon. Prior to her defection, she seems to enjoy being a bitch.
* BittersweetEnding: More so than the other main digimon in the season finale. [[spoiler: Gatomon finally unites with Kari after years of waiting, only to be separated again. Forever ([[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 maybe]]). The other Digimon had months to get to know their kids; Gatomon only had a few days, most of which was spent trying to survive. On the bright side, she did complete her lifeís purpose - protecting Kari.]]
* BlushSticker: [=YukimiBotamon=] and Salamon.
* BrokenBird: The heaps of abuse dealt to her by Myotismon just because she had gentle eyes made her cynical and bitter, with Wizardmon as [[MoralityPet the only one whom she showed a bit of kindness to]]. Until she met Kari and became her partner, that is.
* CatsAreMagic: An interesting variation, in that Gatomon is the cat associated with Wizardmon. Itís like a classic Wizard-Familiar relationship, except that they are good friends.
* CatsAreMean: Subverted upon her HeelFaceTurn.
* CatsAreSnarkers
* CatFight: Appropriately enough, Angewomon vs. [=LadyDevimon=], on two occasions between this series and ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]]''.
** And taken literally during her first appearance.
* CatFolk
* CatSmile
* ChainmailBikini: The little armor Angewomon wears consists of her helm and a breastplate. A "breastplate" which amounts to little more than a metal bra.
* CoolHelmet: Angewomon.
* CuteBruiser: ''WAY'' stronger than [[PintSizedPowerhouse she looks]].
* CuteKitten
* CuteLittleFangs
* TheDragon: Was one of Mytoismon's top lieutenants, capable of giving the heroes a good fight.

* {{Flight}}: Angewomon.
* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Angewomon.
* GoodWingsEvilWings: The aforementioned evolutions have big feathery angel wings (of course).
* GuardianEntity: What drove her on in life: Knowing that she was meant to find and defend someone. And this is even before becoming [[GuardianAngel Angewomon]].
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Most humnaoid angel Digimon have blonde hair. It's one of their things.
* HiddenEyes: Angewomon's helm covers up her eyes. They do exist, and can be seen in her evolution sequence.
* HighHeelFaceTurn: Myotismon's only other female minion was a Dokugumon.
* HypocriticalHumor: Done in the dub, where she complains about one of her henchmon going on a rampage: "What's that big-eared freak trying to do?" Gatomon, I don't think you're in any position to call anyone a "big-eared freak".
* HypnoticEyes: Cat's Eye, which was only used once, in an episode of ''02''.
* InnocentBlueEyes
* KickTheDog: Or smack him with your tail...
* LadyOfWar: Angewomon. The grace gets really toned down a notch if the fight involves [=LadyDevimon=]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: And how! Before she met Kari, Gatomon only could remember her hatred against everyone and the brutal punishments she used to get at a daily basis. She even forgot about the day when she met Wizardmon! Of course, she got better.
* LightningBruiser: She managed to take on six Digimon on the same digivolution level easilly.
* LightEmUp
* LightIsGood: Upon re-discovering her memories.
* LightIsNotGood: Pre-HeelFaceTurn.
* MadeASlave: As Salamon, was made to be a slave to Myotismon.
* MetamorphosisMonster: Her Digivolution line is quite random.
* MsFanservice: Angewomon.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Cute little kitty defeated the group all by herself. Though she is a natural Champion level Digimon while they're all natural Rookies.
* OlympusMons: Magnadramon, one of the [[DragonsUpTheYinYang Four Great Dragons]].
* OperaGloves: Angewomon has one.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Angewomon.
* PaletteSwap: [=YukimiBotamon=].
* TheParalyzer: Angewomon's Heavens Charm seems to have this effect on evil Digimon.
* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's a Champion level, but she's much smaller and more powerful than most of the other kids' partners! This is justified by her evolving naturally to her Champion stage while the others require the children's power to do so.
* ThePowerOfHate: What kept her going for most of her life.
* PowerSource: Her Tail Ring. Without, her strength is reduced to that of a Rookie.
* PreciousPuppy: Salamon.
* PungeonMaster: Downplayed, but being a cat digimon, the dub writters could not resist having Gatomon use alot of cat-related puns.
* RedemptionDemotion
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Nyaromon.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to [=DemiDevimon=]'s red, though she could also be seen as the red to Wizardmon's blue.
* RightHandCat: Literally for Mytoismon.
* ScarsAreForever: Has an X-shaped scar on her left paw from Myotismon, but it's normally covered by her glove. She has a glove on the same hand as Angewomon.
* SensualSpandex: Angewomon.
* SixthRanger
* TeamMom: Being more introverted and mature than most of the other Digimon, she has a tendency to herd them or provide insights into what's going on with the children.
* ThereIsAnother
* ThinkingOutLoud: Does this while observing on Kari, speaking her thoughts about her cloudy past. Wizardmon hears this, and asks her a question. Gatomon, not realizing she was thinking out loud, gets angry and tells him to stop reading her mind.
* TooManyBelts: Angewomon.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Salamon is named after dub producer Terri-Lei O'Malley's pet cat.
* WolverineClaws: Gatomon's claws, which are huge and stick out her gloves.
* ZenSurvivor: After taking years (if not decades) of brutal servitude, Gatomon ends up being wiser and tougher.

!!Gennai

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Gennai_8951.jpg]]

An old man who lives in the Digital World, who actually admits to being made of data- essentially, he's like a Digimon, but with none of the powers or attributes of them. Appears to run the place from behind the scenes, or at least used to...

-->Voiced by: JoujiYanami (JP), Michael Reynolds (EN)
----
* AncientKeeper
* BigGood
* EccentricMentor: Mainly in the dub.
* TheMentor
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Dropping Gatomon's digi-egg and never bothering to look for it led to years of abuse and depression for the poor Digimon, not to mention her becoming an enemy of the very group she was meant to aid! He doesn't ever apologize for that screw-up, either.
* TheObiWan: He actually looks like a young Obi-Wan Kenobi!
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In one flashback episode that explains the origins of the digidestined, Piedmon is shown attacking the headquarters of Gennai's order. When Gennai attempts to fight back, Piedmon dodges around behind him and implants some kind of object into Gennai's back. This is never explained, nor is it mentioned again, although some suspect it to be the explanation for why Gennai looks like an old man in the first season.
** FandomNod: Koushirou's track in ''2-and-a-half Year Break'' has him briefly wonder what that object could have been... then immediately go back to talking about something else. You can almost ''hear'' the writers laughing at us.

!!Leomon

[[quoteright:191:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leomon_4293.jpg]]

A (at first) friendly wild lion-like Digimon who fights for the weak and helps the kids, though without entirely trusting them. He appears again during the Dark Masters Arc as the powerful [=SaberLeomon=]. [[spoiler: He dies protecting Mimi during a fight with [=MetalEtemon=], kickstarting the tradition of killing Leomon every time he shows up in a series.]]

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Champion''': Leomon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=SaberLeomon=], a large quadrupedial lion with sabre teeth.

* MartyrWithoutACause: Becomes his recurring purpose in each show.
* MegaNeko
* PantheraAwesome
* ReverseGrip: Wields his sword in this manner.
* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion: Quite literally as well as fitting the character type. He was also the first in the franchise's long RunningGag line of dead Leomon or evolutions thereof, though it didn't definitively start until ''Anime/DigimonTamers''.]]
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet]]: [[spoiler:Does this for Mimi, saving her from [=MetalEtemon's=] attack.]]

* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WorthyOpponent: To Ogremon.

!!Ogremon

[[quoteright:223:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ogremon_7153.jpg]]

Leomon's rival and foil, an uncouth brute with a sense of humour. As his name indicates, he resembles an ogre.

He joins up with Mimi and Joe during the Dark Masters Arc after he is beaten by [=MetalEtemon=].

-->Voiced by: HisaoEgawa (JP), Beau Billingslea (EN)
----
* AntagonistInMourning: He even says that if he did beat Leomon, he wouldn't know what to do with himself. [[spoiler: Then Leomon dies the same episode. Cue the waterworks from the goblin in leather. ''You were a good rival...'']]
* CarryABigStick
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He has an Ogremon Honor Code in the final arc, while back in the first arc he was simply evil and willing to do anything to stop the children, even threaten to hurt a baby Digimon!
* DarkIsNotEvil: Following his HeelFaceTurn.
* TheDragon: For Devimon.
* DumbMuscle
* HeelFaceTurn
* HonorBeforeReason: He only agrees to help Mimi and Joe because his own Honor Code says so, after they had saved him.

!!Whamon

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/whamon_t_6068.gif]]

A gigantic sea animal Digimon the Digi Destined first encountered on their way to the Continent of Server. [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Under the influence of a Black Gear]] he swallowed the gang, but once freed, becomes a powerful ally in the Net Ocean.

-->Voiced by: Masafumi Kimura (JP), Peter Spellos (EN)

* {{Acrofatic}}
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: He happily returns in Adventure 02. Under the instruction of Joe, he saves most of the new DigiDestined from being trapped in an offshore oil rig, which was being attacked by a MegaSeadramon.]]
* BellyOfTheWhale: Where the children end up on their first encounter. At first its a rather hazardous place with stomach acids. Though later, the kids have no fear of him, as various parts of his vast body [[SapientShip become their very vessel and stealth submarine]].

* ExtremeOmnivore
* EyelessFace: He has no eyes, yet can see just fine.

* GentleGiant: He's a big sweetheart [[SeaMonster even though he doesn't look it]].
* HeroesGoneFishing: The Digi Destined take a break from battling and travelling in a tropical bay, fishing from the great whale's back.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He repeatedly saves the kids from Metal Seadramon, though his efforts to protect them, cost him his life.]]
* LightningBruiser
* LivingShip: He's a temporary home and sanctuary for the kids, protecting them from the ocean's pressure-crushing depths and various attacking water Digimon working for Metal Seadramon.
* MonsterSobStory: [[spoiler:''Subverted'', since he's a sea monster, but not evil. As he slowly died from Metal Seadramon's River of Power attack, he implores the Digi Destined to save the world.]]
* MustMakeAmends: Even though it wasn't his fault, he feels terrible for smashing the children's raft and nearly digesting them. To make it up to them, he happily carries the gang across the ocean to Server.
* PunnyName: His name (and design) is derived from a real-life Blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus).
* SwallowedWhole: Whamon was [[TheCorruption infected with a Black Gear]] and he swallowed the gang in his rampaging.

!!Pixiemon (Piccolomon)

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Piximon_7172.gif]]

A cute but powerful Digimon trainer living in a hidden oasis in the desert. He helps the Chosen Children train to combat Etemon.

!!Wizardmon (Wizarmon)

[[quoteright:216:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wizardmon_7092.jpg]]

A minion of Myotismon who is more than he seems, and has strange powers even by Digimon standards. Gatomon's only real friend [[spoiler:(at first)]] who turns out to greatly influence the story.

-->Voiced by: Creator/AkiraIshida (JP), Robert Axelrod (EN)
----
* AWizardDidIt: Not JustForPun, but see ScarilyCompetentTracker below.
* [[spoiler:AlmostDeadGuy: Keeps himself alive to ensure that he fulfills his destiny.]]
* {{Badass}}: [[spoiler:Survived attacks that would OneHitKill ''higher level Digimon'', defied the arc's BigBad and was the first to harm him in the final battle, though Wizardmon was unarmed, and took ''incredible amounts of damage'' before dying like a man, complete with FamousLastWords.]] See also his entry under CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
** BadassAdorable
** BadassCape: Complete with InstantRunes.
* BlackMage: With various forms of BlackMagic.
* CallingYourAttacks: [[CombatMedic Averts]] [[CombatPragmatist this]] [[InTheBack when]] [[GenreSavvy necessary]].
* CatsAreMagic: An interesting variation, in that Gatomon is the cat associated with Wizardmon. Itís like a classic Wizard-Familiar relationship, except that they are good friends.
* CoatHatMask
* CombatMedic: He healed Lilymon from petrification. When he and Gatomon fight Myotismon in the PSP game, he knows a move that can heal 1000 HP.
* [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil]]
* [[spoiler:DeadPersonConversation]]
* [[spoiler:{{Determinator}}]]: Oh, yes indeed. See SquishyWizard below.
* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome]]
* [[spoiler:EccentricMentor: More so in the Japanese version.]]
* EnigmaticMinion
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[CaptainObvious Heís a wizard]]. Go figure. He plays most of the tropes associated with the fantasy archetype incredibly straight. Also note that this trope is subverted in the episode [[spoiler: named after him. We don't find out what "Wizardmon's Gift" is until he sacrifices himself for Tailmon and Kari.]]
* {{Expy}}: This Wizardmon gets an {{Expy}} in the future thanks to [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Sorcerimon]], who looks exactly like him (except for a PaletteSwap of blue and white instead of his OrangeBlueContrast), is AnIcePerson and more of a WhiteMage, [[spoiler:sacrifices himself]] in a similar way, and even [[spoiler:returns as a ghost]] in a similar way. Another actual Wizardmon also shows up in ''Frontier'', but has different powers, is a MonsterOfTheWeek, and has very little personality resemblance with this one.
* {{Fireballs}}
* {{Foil}}: To Gatomon [[spoiler:and Myotismon.]] Gatomon is his female counterpart, who is more of a physical fighter than a magical one, and with a tough personality but cute looks, all of which are the inverse of Wizardmon's traits. [[spoiler:Similarly, Myotismon is a tall, blonde, blue-eyed and menacing magic user with extreme toughness and power, but Wizardmon also has blonde hair, blue eyes, uses magic, is of smaller size, and his gentle ways, as well as his noble and honorable sacrifice, highlight their similarities and contrasting differences... and just how evil the vampire really was.]]
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Like a few members of Myotismon's crew, Wizardmon was able to walk in broad daylight without drawing attention to himself. He poses as a street magician, [[StageMagician producing balloons and doves with sleight of hand.]]
* FrothyMugsOfWater: In the Japanese dub, he bribes [=DemiDevimon=] with a bottle of Sake. In the English dub, this becomes "a bottle of green chili sauce".
* [[spoiler:HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: One of the first visual hints that heís not actually evil. Subverts BlondesAreEvil, too. Goes well with his blue eyes.]]
* HealingHands: He's the one who manages to cure Lilymon when she's petrified by Myotismon.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: For Tailmon and Kari]]
* HeroicSecondWind: He gets [[spoiler:''two'']] of these. [[spoiler:Notable in that it would take incredible speed for him to have been able to block the last, fatal attack with his body as a shield, after he was blasted several meters away and knocked down moments ago.]]
* HeroicWillpower
* [[spoiler:InTheBack: A rare, heroic example when he manages to draw first blood against Myotismon in the final battle. Also counts as an inversion of BackstabBackfire]]
* InstantRunes: He has a few in the inner parts of his BadassCape.
* IOweYouMyLife: Gatomon once saved him from starving to death and from his crushing loneliness. Ever since then, he became completely devoted to her.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Whilst Adventure 02 reveals he can sometimes appear as a ghost in the real world, he can never reconfigure in the DeathIsCheap manner other Digimon do due to dying in the real world.]]
* LipLock: One of the few Digimon characters completely immune to this. The only time we see his mouth we discover [[spoiler: that he has ''literal'' LipLock. His lips are stitched together. It doesn't prevent him from eating or speaking though.]]
* LonersAreFreaks: He was this before he met Gatomon, though he subverts the IneffectualLoner trope as well later on.
* MagiciansAreWizards: An interesting variation in that while he poses as a stage magician at first, [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself he still wears his full wizard outfit.]]
* MagicWand: Look closely and you'll see it's in the shape of a Digitama (Digi-egg), or a Tamagotchi. WordOfGod says it's a MythologyGag and a ShoutOut to the original Digital Monsters.
* [[spoiler:ManlyTears]]
* [[spoiler:MartyrWithoutACause: See also {{Expy}}. Generally he averts this by actually having something important to die for. Next to Leomon, however, heís the Digimon most likely to sacrifice himself.]]
* MoralityChain: For a long time, only his presence kept Gatomon from being a full-blooded villainess.
* MysteriousPast
* MythologyGag: See MagicWand, {{Expy}} and [[spoiler:MartyrWithoutACause]]. Also, in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', a Wizardmon and a Gatomon are seen together in a crowd in one episode, as a reference to the relationship of these characters in ''Adventure''.
* [[spoiler:NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Holy crap. No one can find the Eighth child? Found her ten minutes ago. Can't get there soon enough? Let's fly you over there. No one can heal Lilymon from petrification? Give me a challenge. No one can harm Myotismon? First blood. None of the superfast, superpowerful, Ultimate level Digimon can save Gatomon and Kari? Got there just in time. How did I do it? [[AWizardDidIt I'm magic]].]]
* NiceHat
* [[spoiler:NoOneShouldSurviveThat: Myotismon fails to kill him with his most powerful spells, which would be certain death to most Digimon beyond Wizardmon's level.]] [[spoiler: As {{Badass}} as Wizardmon is, though, it doesn't last forever.]]
* NoSelfBuffs: He could heal Lilymon, but apparently could not heal himself from the injuries caused by Myotismon.
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead: A heroic version. Myotismon's rage and fear upon seeing him alive said it all.]]
* [[spoiler:TheObiWan: To Gatomon.]]
* [[spoiler:OurGhostsAreDifferent: Evidence suggests he's tied to the place where he died, unable to be reborn either because he died in the Real World, or because he's unable to move because he feels like he still has to protect Gatomon.]]
* [[spoiler:OurSoulsAreDifferent: See OurGhostsAreDifferent, though Wizardmon brings up the question on what a exactly Digimon's soul could be.]]
* OccultDetective
* OrangeBlueContrast
* PintSizedPowerhouse: See {{Badass}} for more info. He's about TK's size!
* PlatonicLifePartners: He and Gatomon were each other's only friends for a while. Needless to say they seemed quite close.
* PlayingWithFire
* PsychicLink: Gatomon thinks he can read her mind. Subverted, as it's really her ThinkingOutLoud.
* PsychicPowers: Specifically, levitation and mind-reading.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld
* TheRedMage: While most Digimon have one or two attacks and maybe one special ability, Wizardmon is arguably the most versatile character in the series. He could heal curses, fly unaided (or levitate, because he had various psychic powers), control the weather, dish out lightning and fire, and, in the English dub, read minds. Not to mention he was [[spoiler:incredibly hard to kill and could return as a ghost]]. Being based on Wizards as a fantasy concept, it's not a stretch to see he had a lot of different magical powers at his disposal. He's more of a BlackMage but has WhiteMage powers too. He gets even more powers in the ExpandedUniverse and in Anime/DigimonFrontier, including the ability to ''create copies of himself'' and produce ''[[IKnowWhatYouFear fear gas]]''. All of this on top of being a hunter, a spy, and an expert in stealth.
* {{Reincarnation}}: [[spoiler:Averted. Unlike other good Digimon, he isn't reborn.]]
* RelationshipVoiceActor: If you're an unrepentant fangirl, this allows for a probably-unintentional-yet-still-amusing, very brief moment, when Matt's dad helps carry Wizardmon around. Ishida and Hirata's characters in ''{{Saiyuki}}'' do that for each other quite a lot...
* [[spoiler:ReverseMole: Proud of it, too!]]
* RobeAndWizardHat
* ScarilyCompetentTracker: He was the first one in Myotismonís crew to successfully locate Kari, then brought Gatomon to her. Take note, he was racing against an army of supernatural creatures while looking for her in ''Odaiba, Japan''. Thatís not easy. He also manages to locate the true Crest of Light. {{Handwaved}} by the fact that AWizardDidIt.
** The crest of light was in Myotismon's coffin. It wasn't that amazing that he knew where it was one. Also technically Gatomon was the first one to pretty much figure out that Kari was the 8th child.
* ShockAndAwe
* SinisterSilhouettes: His is clearly visible among Myotismon's army before they enter the portal to the human world. [[spoiler:He also gets another moment with this trope when he returns as a ghost in 02.]]
* SquishyWizard: [[spoiler:Subverted. He's small, but man, he took a ''lot'' of punishment before dying: surviving two OneHitKill attacks, being tossed into the ocean, blasted by magic into a wall by a superpowerful vampire and then using his body as a shield to block a third OneHitKill spell, and even lasting ''long enough after that to say his last words''. Also played straight in that he's a bit of a GlassCannon, but he manages to get up after he's been hit by something insanely powerful.]]
* StageMagician: He poses as one of these to avoid drawing attention to himself in the Real World.
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet: Is killed when he takes an attack meant for Gatomon and Kari.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Gatomon and Gatomon alone. [[spoiler:Well, Kari too, by extension.]]
* WhiteMage: With some WhiteMagic, namely immortality (see WizardsLiveLonger, below), invulnerability, and healing powers.
* [[spoiler:WhyWontYouDie: The outraged look on Myotismon's face in the final battle when he realized Wizardmon was still alive and powerful enough to hurt him was priceless.]] [[spoiler: Subverted when Wizardmon actually dies.]]
* WizardClassic: His English voice invokes this, sounding much older and wiser than the original Japanese.
* WildMassGuessing: Oh my. Wizarmon, more than any other Digimon in the fandom, is prone to this. What was his past really like? Where did he get his truckload of powers? What is it that makes him different from most Digimon? What was his relationship with Tailmon like? And most importantly, [[spoiler: Why wasn't he reborn? If it was because he died in the Real World, then explain Myotismon and why Gotsumon and Pumpmon's Spirits don't linger...]].
** Myotismon's spirit DID linger, he possessed Oikawa shortly after the kids returns to the Digital World. As for Gotsumon and Pumpkin there is no reason to believe that there spirits didn't linger but they had no means to or reason to communicate with the kids like Wizardmon did. And yes its pretty much made obvious that Digimon who die in the real world don't have their data reconfigured
* WizardsLiveLonger: [[spoiler: [[ZigZaggingTrope Zigzagged.]] First, heís a Digimon, and thus is technically TheAgeless, then heís ''supposedly'' killed by Vandemon, so you think he's dead, but comes back later, so you think he will live... and then he's killed off for real. THEN he returns as a ghost in the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' and is thus more immortal than most Digimon.]]
* {{Zipperiffic}}: Just look at his outfit!

!! Devimon

[[quoteright:202:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/devimon_2580.jpg]]

The first BigBad of the show, a fallen Angel Digimon who discovered the Black Gears, and used them to take over File Island. In his first encounter with the [=DigiDestined=] he was content to just separate them and allow those infected by the Black Gears to deal with them. When it came time to get his hands dirty, he absorbed all the remaining Black Gears and his Ogremon minion, and quickly overpowered the Chosen Children. It took Patamon Digivolving to Angemon for the first time to finally destroy him, though as he disintegrated he warned the heroes that were plenty of other, more dangerous villains out there. A bit later, it was revealed that he had hidden the Tags and Crests (objects that would allow the [=DigiDestined=]'s partners to Digivolve further) on the nearby continent of Server.

His "ghost" reappeared in the mysterious Dark Whirlpool in ''02'', and warned the Digimon Emperor not to trifle with the powers of darkness. Ignoring Devimon's words, the emperor captured his essence, and used it to add the finishing touch to his latest engine of destruction, Kimeramon. This proved to be a poor decision, as Devimon's evil corrupted the otherwise mindless Kimeramon.

* DevourTheDragon: He turns Ogremon into Black Gears and absorbs him to increase his power. Ironically, of the two of them, Ogremon survived thanks to getting blasted out of Devimon in the fight before Devimon was killed.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: Subverted.

* FangsAreEvil
* GenreSavvy: Is one of the competent villains in the series, planning to weaken the children before going after them, but doesn't approach DangerouslyGenreSavvy since he doesn't go and kill them himself. Despite his boasting, he's also aware that he's just a big fish in a small pound.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Instead of killing the [=DigiDestined=], which he could have easily done at several points, he instead just stayed on Mount Infinity, brooding.

!!Etemon

[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/etemon_4145.jpg]]

The second BigBad, a anthropomorphic monkey whom the [=DigiDestined=] encounter on the mainland. Controls a Dark Network across the desert that amplifies his power and allows him to command many other Digimon, and proves to be surprisingly much harder to defeat than Devimon (and ''stay'' defeated).

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Ultimate''': Etemon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=MetalEtemon=], basically a silver [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin metal Etemon]] made out of hardest known substance known to Digimon.

->Voiced by: Creator/YasunoriMasutani (JP), Creator/RichardEpcar (EN)
----
* BadBoss
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He's a monkey-like Elvis impersonator...and yet he's stronger than the demonic Devimon the Digidestined just took down.
* BigBad: Of the second story arc.
* BodyHorror: Fusing with the Dark Network caused him to bulk up rather grotesquely.
* CameBackStrong: As [=MetalEtemon=].
* ChromeChampion: As [=MetalEtemon=].
* CoolShades
* DarkIsEvil
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Or worse, ''much'' worse.
** [[ManiacMonkeys Maniac Monkey]]: Unlike the other villains, he doesn't even bother to hide his ruthlessness through a gentlemanly manner.
* EvilVsEvil: Against Datamon. As [=MetalEtemon=], he gets into a brief fight with Puppetmon.
* {{Fartillery}}: One of his attacks as [=MetalEtemon=].
* HeroKiller: Due mostly due to being an Ultimate level Digimon while the heroes only had access to Champion level at the time. His Concert Crush being able to de-digivolve Digimon is another good reason.
** Fulfils the 'Killer' part when he curbstomps and mortally wounds Saberleomon, a ''Mega''.
** See also NotSoHarmlessVillain.
* HypocriticalHumor: Hey, Etemon, you shouldn't complain about your minion being too loud when you're the one talking into a microphone.
* KickTheDog: Beating Datamon and forcing him to maintain his Dark Network. It comes back to bite him later.
* LargeHam
* LaughablyEvil
* LightningBruiser: Quite agile and strong enough to toss Digimon around like ragdolls.
* MoodWhiplash: Comes right after the demonic and frightening Devimon and before Myotismon.
* MusicalAssassin
* NighInvulnerable: Even before becoming [=MetalEtemon=] his ability to survive damage was unreal. He effortlessly shrugged off attacks from the gang's Digimon, being electrocuted had no lasting effects on him, and even being ''sucked into a black hole'' wasn't exactly fatal to him.

** Also fitting beforehand. Despite his appearences, he's an Ultimate Level Digimon, while Devimon was only a Champion.

!! Myotismon (''Vamdemon'')

[[quoteright:162:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/myotismon_3368.jpg]]

The third BigBad who proves far more dangerous than the others, and has designs on the real world as well as the Digital World. A rather classic [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] who can even pass off as human.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Ultimate''': Myotismon, his default form.
** '''Mega''': [=VenomMyotismon=] ''([=VenomVamdemon=])'', an utterly enormous humanoid devil with limited intelligence, buglike design overtones... and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything a crotch monster]].

-->Voiced by: RyuzaburoOhtomo (JP), Creator/RichardEpcar (EN)

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: [=VenomMyotismon=], the largest digimon in the series apart from Apocalymon.
* BadBoss
* BeastOfTheApocalypse: [=VenomMyotismon=], and they play it for all it's worth.
* BigBad: Of the third story arc and [[spoiler:all of ''Adventure 02'']]
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* BloodLust: In the digital world he normally feeds on data, but his time in the human world has unfortunately given him a taste for human blood...
* BloodyMurder: Yeah, "Crimson Lightning/Mist", yeah...
** Far more apparent in the original version, where they were called "Bloody Stream" and "Melting Blood", respectively.
* CameBackStrong: Each time he's seemingly killed off, he ends up brought back to life in an even more powerful form. [[spoiler: That is, until the Digidestined finally blow up his soul and kill him off for good.]]
* TheChessmaster
* DarkIsEvil
* DeaderThanDead: [[spoiler:The Digidestined finally kill him off for good by blowing up his soul.]]
* DevourTheDragon: [[spoiler:''Literally''. He eats Demidevimon alive as [=VenomMyotismon=] to get a small boost in power during his fight with the Digidestined.]]
* EvilOverlord: A classic example
* FauxAffablyEvil: At times.
* HeroKiller: Possibly the most notable one in the series, consistently defeating the heroes' high level evolutions. Not to mention [[spoiler:killing Wizardmon and causing the first death on the heroes' side.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: His obsession with killing off the eighth [=DigiDestined=] caused him to end up bringing her partner to her. The very Digimon who ended up spelling his demise.
* [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Japanese Vampire]]
* KickTheDog: Really, his entire existence is one long string of these.
* KnightOfCerebus: Boy howdy... This guy was practically toying with the heroes for most of his arc, frequently had them on the ropes, and introduced AnyoneCanDie into the series by being the first to murder sympathetic characters (his own minions, natch). Things only get darker until the series' conclusion.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Killing [[spoiler:Wizardmon resulted Gatomon digivolving into Angewomon and killing his first form.]]
* ManipulativeBastard
* MotiveRant
--> '''Myotismon:''' ''I planned to permanently fuse the Human World to the Digital World, so that, this way, I would rule over both worlds! '''[[ChewingTheScenery I DID WHAT I WAS DESTINED TO DO!!]]'''
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Like his foil Wizardmon, he to keeps getting new attacks. First the bats, fine, fine. A red streak, okay. Telekinesis, ummmm... alright? Wait, is [=MetalGreymon=] about to finally kill him? Nope, he can just stop attacks with a stare. Did Wizardmon just make an InTheBack attack? Too bad he can just throw it right back. And this is not counting his ability to come BackFromTheDead.
* NotQuiteDead
* OneWingedAngel: After being killed the first time, he comes back to life as [=VenomMyotismon=].
* OurVampiresAreDifferent
* ResurrectiveImmortality: Similar to most Digimon, but his case deserves special mention because he just isn't reborn as a Digi-Egg. Instead, his soul just kept coming back to life in a stronger form, first as [=VenomMyostismon=] and then in ''Adventure 02'' as [=MaloMyotismon=]. It takes [[spoiler:[[DeaderThanDead having his soul blown up]] by the [[AllYourPowersCombined combined light of every Digidestined on Earth]]]] to make him stay dead for good.
* ThemeSongReveal
* WeakenedByTheLight
* WeWillMeetAgain: This happens enough to annoy the heroes.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: As Venom Myotismon, he goes from his TakeOverTheWorld plans to just being a rampaging monster whose only thought is feeding and destroying everything in sight.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Very willing to kill off his minions. In the dub this was changed to [[NeverSayDie banishing them back to the Digital World]]. This seems a little odd considering the Dark Masters got away with killing off Digimon left and right.

!! The Dark Masters

->'''Piedmon:''' Those bit players are frozen with stage fright, hopelessly waiting for the moment they'll be saved. And yet, there's an unseen twist in the plot.\\
'''[=MetalSeadramon=]:''' I say we cut to the punchline and go straight for the action!\\
'''Puppetmon:''' Oh please, that would be boring. I want to play this drama to the hilt! Let's pull out all the stops and give them what they paid for.\\
'''Piedmon:''' I'm in complete agreement, a quick victory would be a letdown.\\
'''[[TheQuietOne Machinedramon]]:''' *eyes flash*\\
'''Piedmon:''' The [=DigiDestined=] will be on Spiral Mountain soon. We must rehearse before they get here. It will be the final performance! [=MetalSeadramon=], Puppetmon and Machinedramon, I present to you the downfall of the [=DigiDestined=]!

While the [=DigiDestined=] were on Earth combating Myotismon, these four Mega-level baddies ([=MetalSeadramon=], Puppetmon, Machinedramon and Piedmon) conquered the Digital World with their armies, and reshaped most of it into Spiral Mountain.

----

* AlienGeometries: Spiral Mountain.
* BigBadEnsemble: While they are a team, they have very little onscreen interaction, and don't seem to care all that much for each other, preferring to work alone, and not even being a bit perturbed when the [=DigiDestined=] start taking out members of the group. Notably, during all the times he is taunted for not having any true friends, Puppetmon doesn't once even try to claim the other Dark Masters are his friends.

** The Sanguine: Puppetmon.
** The Melancholic: Machinedramon.
** The Choleric: Piedmon.
* KnightOfCerebus: While Myotismon caused the series to take a serious turn, they take it even further, have already conquered the Digital World, nearly kill the [=DigiDestined=] in their first fight, and along the way kill several other minor characters.
* NoOntologicalInertia: Whenever a member of the gang was killed, their portion of Spiral Mountain evaporated.
* PatchworkWorld: Spiral Mountain.
* RagTagBunchOfMisfits: A cyborg sea serpent, a living marionette, a mechanical dragon, and a magical clown.
* TakeOverTheWorld: And by the time we see them, they've already succeeded. And it's hinted in the original Japanese version that they planned to do the same to the real world.

* ActionFigureSpeech
* BadBoss: Notably averted, as he's about the only BigBad in the first series not to be one. So long as you do your job right he's actually a pretty good boss. Yeah, he killed Scorpiomon, but only after he failed him rather severely, and was very willing to reward him with his favorite food for doing his job correctly. That said, he's pretty short-tempered and impatient at best, so he's still pretty evil.
* BreathWeapon[=/=]PlayingWithFire: Unlike other Seadramon, he breathes fire instead of ice.
* TheBrute
* ChromeChampion
* CombatPragmatism: His strategy on how to take care of the [=DigiDestined=], but since the other Dark Masters are sadists playing around with the VillainBall, he only got the chance during his few episodes. He even comes pretty close when he has Scorpiomon helping him, though because [[SpannerInTheWorks Joe and Mimi accidentally avoided his trap]] and beat Scorpiomon, his plan was thwarted.
* CruelAndUnusualDeath: [=WarGreymon=] drilled into his nose, through his body, and out his tail.

** "Ha! Farewell, [=DigiDestined=]! It was a rare pleasure knowing you - [[KillItWithFire MEDIUM RARE]]!"
* LeeroyJenkins: He prefers not to play with his food, just cook it.
* LightIsNotGood: So far, he's the only purely villainous main antagonist whose attribute has been Data, a type usually attributed to good Digimon.
* NighInvulnerable: "What was that, a love tap? I'm made of Chrome Digizoid too, you know! You can't hurt me that easily!"
* TheNoseKnows: "Do you smell something? There's the scent of [=DigiDestined=] in the current. Either that, or there's a bad patch of seaweed around here..."
* OnlySaneMan: Out of the BigBadEnsemble of [[MonsterClown Piedmon]], [[PsychopathicManchild Puppetmon]], [[RoboticPsychopath Machinedramon]], and himself, he seems to be the only one who isn't a sadistic psychopath.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
* PitifulWorms
* PragmaticVillainy: He's a pretty much a BenevolentBoss as long as you do your job right, rewarding Scorpiomon with clams (his favourite food) once the [=DigiDestined=] have been captured. Which is more than can be said for [[BadBoss the other Dark Masters]].

* KillItWithIce: Met his end via [=MetalGarurumon=]'s Metal Wolf Claw.
* LackOfEmpathy: Implied, but not outright stated, to be why he enjoys torturing and killing his playmates. A sympathetic example in some ways, as he truly does want friends but this makes it impossible for him to have true ones.
* LastVillainStand
* LivingToys
* LonersAreFreaks: A lot of his arc emphasizes his lack of true friends, despite his insistence that he has some. T.K. uses this to trick Puppetmon out of killing him.

* PowerFloats
* PsychopathicManchild: Type C or E, or a combination of both. In the dub at least. Though he still had this vibe to some degree in the original (a Mega level technically is full-grown). It's revealing, for instance, that too often he has the [=DigiDestined=] in his power, but [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim constantly delays killing them]] because he wants to have some sadistic fun first.

* RuleOfSymbolism: As he lies dying, his cross plants itself next to his body.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: How he ended the fight with [=MetalEtemon=].
* SinisterSchnoz
* SinisterSurveillance: In the first episode of his arc he uses a television with a remote control to spy on (and mess around with) the kids.
* StupidEvil: Kills off his henchmen and allies, and decides to play around with the [=DigiDestined=] instead of finishing them off when he has the chance. Though there were two instances where he thought about just killing them all immediately, but both times he was talked out of it a minion (Kiwimon and Cherrymon, respectively).
* SweatDrop
* ThisIsADrill: Drill Nose.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Too bad he ran into Matt and [=MetalGarurumon=].
* VoodooDoll: He has some of the [=DigiDestined=].
* WeakButSkilled: He's certainly the physically weakest of the Dark Masters. [=MetalGarurumon=] one-shots him, and when confronting [=WarGreymon=] in one-on-one combat, he was clearly on the losing end until he resorted to using his puppet strings. Note, he's still physically stronger than the Ultimate-level Digimon, its just in comparison to other Megas his physical attributes seem a bit lower.

* DeadpanSnarker: Good lord! One of the biggest snarkers in the show. It frequently happens when his minions act stupid and considering that he's the least talkative of the Dark Masters, that's speaking ''volumes.''

* MechanicalLifeforms
* MixAndMatchMan: He is composed of random pieces of other mechanical Digimon.
* NotQuiteDead: Unlike the other Dark Masters, he survives (despite being onion sliced!) and combines with a Kimeramon to form Milleniumon. Note that despite being canon, it's never showed in the TV series and instead kicks off the plot of the Wonderswan game series starring Ryo.

!! Diaboromon (''Diablomon'')

[[quoteright:237:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Diaboromon_777.jpg]]

-->''"[[CatastrophicCountdown Who can count backwards from ten?]]"''

A [[MillenniumBug [=Y2K=]]] bug-inspired Digimon, and the antagonist of the film ''Our War Game''. Spawned from a viral, internet-based Digi-Egg, Diaboromon came close to wiping out the [=DigiDestined=] and sparking World War III when he hacked into the Pentagon and launched nuclear warheads, though he was thankfully stopped JustInTime when [=WarGreymon=] and [=MetalGarurumon=] combined to form Omnimon.

Unfortunately, he just barely survived, and laid low until resurfacing years later in ''Revenge of Diaboromon''. Creating millions of Kuramon out of bits of his data, he sent them to Earth through emails, and after being destroyed once again by Omnimon, resurrected himself on Earth by having the little blobs join together in Tokyo Harbor to form his alternate Mega - Armageddemon. Easily thrashing both Omnimon and Imperialdramon, it looked like Armageddemon would live up to his name and cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, only for his opponents to combine their power and fatally would him. Armageddemon broke apart into a swarm of Kuramon, who were transported back online (where they were presumably deleted) by awed civilians' cellphones, made into gateways by the Digivices.

When it was released in English as apart of ''Film/DigimonTheMovie'', ''Our War Game'' and the unrelated ''Hurricane Touchdown/Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals'' were connected by having Willis be the one who created Diaboromon's egg. They also had the viral entity that corrupted Willis's partner Kokomon be the same one that was responsible for Diaboromon.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

* '''Fresh:''' Kuramon, a grayish-blue blob with a single red eye.
* '''In-Training:''' Tsumemon; still a cyclops blob, except now with antennae and claws.
* '''Rookie:''' Keramon, a maniacal insect-squid with flimsy hands, and lots of tentacles.
* '''Champion:''' Chrysalimon, a cocoon shaped form with spiked tentacles (never directly seen, but officially stated to be the adult stage for this line and individual)
* '''Ultimate:''' Infermon, an arachnid with retractable limbs, and an impenetrable shell.
* '''Mega:''' Diaboromon, his main form.
* '''"Super" Mega:''' Armageddemon, a monstrous, vaguely reptilian and multi-legged abomination.

!! Kuwagamon

A big red stag beetle, and the first Digimon encountered by the chosen children after they met their partners. He terrorized them, but when the Digimon partners digivolved to their Rookie stage and started to give him a beating, he resorted to knocking them, the [=DigiDestined=] and himself off the cliff they were on. Kuwagamon, even larger than before, later attacked Tai and Agumon in the deserts of Server before being killed by Pixiemon, and one appeared in the real world after [=VenomMyotismon=]'s defeat, knocking an airplane out of the sky. Whether this was the same one that appeared in the series premiere is left vague.

--> Voice by: Yuuto Kazama (JP), Michael Sorich (EN)

* BigCreepyCrawlies
* EvilCounterpart: To Kabuterimon.
* EyelessFace: Instead of eyes it has FacialMarkings.
* {{Flight}}: Has a pair of wings and can smash through just about anything in its path.
* IntangibleMan: On Earth Kabuterimon's attacks pass right through it.
* JapaneseBeetleBrothers: Is a stag beetle to Kabuterimon's rhinoceros beetle.
* MultiarmedAndDangerous: Has four sets of arms.
* StarterVillain: Is the first antagonist the [=DigiDestined=] encounter, though it was more like an animal than an actual villain.

!! Shellmon

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shellmon_b_5093.jpg]]

-->''"There is no escaping! You're in my element now!"''

One of the only recurring antagonists that isn't in the employ of a major villain, Shellmon first appears in episode two and is defeated when Agumon Digivolves to Greymon for the first time. Later, he returns for revenge, but is sent retreating by Biyomon and Tentomon.

--> Voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawazu (JP), Tom Fahn (EN)

* TheBrute: No real motivation is given for his actions other than that Shellmon are a naturally hostile species, and he doesn't even have dialogue in his first appearance.
* CreepyBlueEyes
* EvilLaugh
* EvilSoundsDeep
* MakingASplash: Aqua Blaster.
* RealMenWearPink
* SeaMonster
* SpikesOfVillainy
* SuddenlyVoiced: In his reappearance.
* TalkingToHimself: Tom Fahn also voices Agumon.
* TunnelKing
* TwinkleInTheSky: Made one by Greymon.
* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: It's [[LampshadeHanging pointed out in the show]] after just ''two'' Rookies are needed to dispatch him the second time that they've obviously gotten a lot stronger, since it took a Champion to beat him the first time.
* WoundedGazelleGambit: When he reappears, he's taken to prentending to be someone drowning in order to lure in victims.
* YouNeedABreathMint: "Oh, that breath! Ever hear of flossing?"

!!Bakemon

[[quoteright:161:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Bakemon_t_1779.gif]]

First appears in episode 11, when the [=DigiDestined=] were separated, and Joe and Sora encounter a group in a cemetery. They are able to merge together to form a "Lord Bakemon". Later, many more are encountered in Myotismon's employ, working under Phantomon. As evil spirits, they are weak against faith.

The Lord Bakemon also holds the honor of being the first enemy to be destroyed by the children's Digimon rather than just made to retreat.

-->Voiced by: Keaton Yamada (JP), Michael Reisz (EN)

* BedsheetGhost
* {{Bowdlerization}}: In the original, Joe chanted Buddhist sutras to weaken the Bakemon; in the dub, this is changed to repeating the mantra "Bakemon, lose your power".
* ComMons
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath
* KingMook: Lord Bakemon
* KilledOffForReal: The first enemy Digimon to be killed. Earlier ones were simply unbrainwashed or sent somewhere far away.
* {{Mook}}s: During the Myotismon arc.
* RedRightHand: Lord Bakemon has wrinkled blue arms.
* ToServeMan: In their first appearance, the Bakemon want to eat Joe and Sora.
* VillainDecay: In their first appearance, they were more than capable of taking on the children's Rookie-level Digimon on their own, and it took the combined might of Birdramon and Ikkakumon to take down the Lord Bakemon even after it had been weakened by Joe's chanting. Come the Myotismon arc, the chanting itself is enough to incapacitate them, and the Rookies are easily taking on multiple Bakemon.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The first time they face the Bakemon, Joe uses mind over matter (the spiritual kind, not the telekinetic [[MindOverMatter trope]]) to weaken them. The second time? Sora does this ''by recording''. This might be a case of DubInducedPlotHole, as in the original Joe invoked Buddhist sutras which ''might'' still work even if being broadcasted via a recording if the words themselves hold power even without the faith of the speaker behind them.

!!Datamon (Nanomon)

[[quoteright:297:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DatamonArtwork_3115.jpg]]

An enemy of Etemon's, this robotic Digimon is completely unhinged. Was once a Vaccine type, but [[FaceHeelTurn became a Virus type]] after an attack from a powerful Virus type destroyed his logic circuits. Out for revenge against Etemon for sealing him in a pyramid. Kidnaps Sora and tries to create a copy of her so that he can use her crest and digivice against Etemon.

-->Voiced by: Hidenari Ugaki (JP), Eddie Frierson (EN)

* AIIsACrapshoot
* AntiVillain: In that he wants to defeat Etemon, but his methods are just unforgivable.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Fires his Plug Bombs into Etemon's Dark Network, causing it to grow and swallow him up.
* {{Revenge}}: His primary motivation against Etemon.
* SealedEvilInACan: Sealed by another villain, actually, and out for revenge.
* TakingYouWithMe: Tries to do this to Etemon. Too bad it didn't take.
* WildCard: Not actually directly opposed to the [=DigiDestined=]; in fact they shared a common enemy and could easily have been allies if Datamon had just asked them for help instead of trying to use them.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: It's somewhat difficult to not feel sorry for him after all the things Etemon did to him.

!![=DemiDevimon=] ([=PicoDevimon=])

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/DemiDevimon_t_638.gif]]

One of Myotismon's lackeys, stirs up trouble for the [=DigiDestined=]. Tries to steal their crests, inevitably ending up being the one to cause the crests to activate instead. Gets abused by Myotismon and the [=DigiDestined=] alike, culminating in [[spoiler:[=VenomMyotismon=] ''eating'' him]].

-->Voiced by: Kouki Miyata (JP), Creator/DerekStephenPrince (EN)

* AlasPoorVillain: He gets abused so much after failing against the [=DigiDestined=] every time that it's easy to sympathize with him, especially when [[spoiler:he gets eaten by [=VenomMyotismon=] at the end]].
* {{Bowdlerization}}: Aside from in "Sora's Crest of Love" where it was too important to the plot to cut out, his Demi Dart is cut out of the English dub due to its resemblance to a syringe, which carries an association with drugs.
* ChewToy: Constantly beaten up.
* CoDragons: He does technically share the Dragon status with Gatomon, and was able to give the Digidestined a run for their money before Tai came back. However, his ineffectiveness shows he's not quite up to the job, and is woefully underpowered comapred to Gatomon or Phantomon.
* DarkChick: Of Myotismon's minions, despite being male.
* DirtyCoward
* [[spoiler:[[DevourTheDragon Eating The Dark Chick]]]]: His eventual fate.
* EvilCounterpart: He's the Rookie form of Devimon. Guess which two Digimon beat him up most frequently (besides Myotismon himself)? Yep, Gatomon and Patamon.
* FamousLastWords: "Hey, hang on! What are you doing?!"
* FauxAffablyEvil
* HarmlessVillain: Aside from using a Demi Dart to hurt Biyomon, he doesn't seem to be able to do much on his own, so he pretty much has to rely on manipulating others and using other Digimon to do the dirty work. Not to mention, everything pretty much backfires on him, no matter what. Oh, and he's a Rookie-level Digimon. What else would you expect?
* TheImp
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Some may disagree whether he's sympathetic, but he's definitely comically ineffectual.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: For about five straight episodes, earning more and more ire from Myotismon every time.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Gatomon's blue.
* SmugSnake
* TalkingToHimself: Mostly avoided, but he does interact with Digitamamon, another of the Digimon that Prince voiced in the dub.

!!Phantomon

[[quoteright:170:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Phantomon_t_6775.gif]]

Myotismon's strongest underling, one of only four Ultimate-level Digimon to appear under his command (the others being SkullMeramon, Mammothmon and [=MegaSeadramon=]). First appears driving Myotismon's stagecoach; later reappears as the commander of the Bakemon army and also summons Tuskmon and Snimon to delay the children and smashes the recording that was weakening the Bakemon. Was caught in the crossfire when all eight [=DigiDestined=] Digimon attacked Myotismon, succumbing to Angemon's Hand of Fate.

-->Voiced by: Creator/TakahiroSakurai (JP), Dave Guerrie (EN)

* BattleButler: Could be seen as this, since he first appears driving Myotismon's stagecoach.
* TheDragon: After Gatomon defects, he becomes Myotismon's second in command. Phantomon leads Myotismon's armies and is right at his master's side during the final battle with the heroes. (Well, the final one before Myotismon came back in a more powerful form, anyway.)
* EnemySummoner: Does very little fighting for himself, using his army of Bakemon for most attacks and summoning Tuskmon and Snimon to battle Matt and Sora's Digimon.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Guerrie voiced Phantomon [[{{Homage}} in the style of]] Creator/BorisKarloff.
** But inverted in the Japanese version, where Sakurai gave him a high-pitched wail.
* {{Expy}}: [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} The Death to Myotismon's Dracula.]]
* KingMook: Of the Bakemon.
* SinisterScythe: He is based on TheGrimReaper, after all.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Could easily become this to viewers who aren't paying close attention. When the heroes' Digimon are all sending their attacks at Myotismon, Phantomon is off to the side and gets destroyed when Angemon uses his Hand of Fate.

!! Cherrymon (Jureimon)

[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Cherrymon_t_1194.gif]]

-->''"Wait a minute, Puppetmon, I have a better idea. You can take care of those other [=DigiDestined=] children if you want to, but as for this one, leave him to me. I'll have him climbing up a tree before I'm through with him!"''

A wise old Digimon who seems to be a friend of Puppetmon's. Sows dissension among the [=DigiDestined=], realizing that united, they would be too strong for Puppetmon, but warns Puppetmon to be cautious anyway. Puppetmon dislikes this "negative attitude" and [[BadBoss destroys him]] for it.

--> Voiced by: Masami Kikuchi (JP), Creator/JeffNimoy (EN)

* TheConsigliere: To Puppetmon. Ironically, his dub portrayal was inspired by the ''Don'' in the relationship that made this trope's name famous.
* TheCorrupter: Manages to turn Matt against the rest of the [=DigiDestined=].
** EvilMentor: Matt knew that Cherrymon worked for Puppetmon, but listened to him anyway.

* MultiArmedAndDangerous
* OhCrap: When he realizes he's said the exact wrong thing to Puppetmon, and can only stammer "Well... not totally."
* OlderSidekick: To Puppetmon.
* PornStache
* RedOniBlueOni: The [[MagnificentBastard cool, calculating blue]] to his impetuous boss Puppetmon's red.
* RubberMan: When Matt and Gabumon try to walk off, he stretches out one of his limbs to block them.
* ShoutOut: Creator/JeffNimoy's portrayal is one big ShoutOut to Creator/MarlonBrando, drawing a lot of inspiration from [[Film/TheGodfather Vito Corleone]] and sharing his [[FamousLastWords last words]] with [[Film/ApocalypseNow Colonel Kurtz]]
* SpiritAdvisor: In the English dub, as Puppetmon is dying, he asks Cherrymon what it was that the [=DigiDestined=] had that he didn't have, and Cherrymon's voice replies, "[[ThePowerOfFriendship Friends]]."
* ToothStrip
* WhenTreesAttack
* WiseTree

[[quoteright:188:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/LadyDevimon_3351.jpg]]

-->''"Oh please, please, Lord Piedmon, let me punish them!"''

Devimon's DistaffCounterpart, and Angewoman's EvilCounterpart. The bodyguard and gatekeeper of Piedmon, she attacked Tai's group in the darkness portion of Spiral Mountain after they defeated Machinedramon. After effortlessly deflecting most of what the group threw at her (and getting into a CatFight with Angewoman) she was destroyed when Angewoman managed to blast her with a point-blank Heaven's Charm.

--> Voiced by Ai Nagano (JP), Melodee Spevack (EN)
