Also, it's best not to compare it to ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. [[FandomBerserkButton You will regret it for the rest of your life]].[[note]]For the sake of clarification: the similarities between the two pretty much end at their status as {{shonen}} {{mons}} franchises based on portable games which debuted at roughly the same time, 3 mounths to be exact; beyond that, [[{{Pun}} they are vastly different beasts]].[[/note]]

** SevenDeadlySins: The Seven Great Demon Lords, in possible answer to the [[CouncilOfAngels Three Great Angels]], all come with their own crest resembling their identifying sin and names likely taken from the ArsGoetia; Lilithmon - Lust, Beelzebumon - Gluttony, Leviamon - Envy, Demon - Wrath, Barbamon - Avarice, Belphemon - Sloth, Lucemon - Pride (fittingly, he leads the group). Each member has appeared individually here and there throughout Digimon canon, though the {{Metaplot}} links them and tells of stronger digimon that they're connected to. There exist at least two ''Super'' Demon Lords, the first being Lucemon Satan Mode and the second being ''Ogudomon'', whose appearance derives from the [[Literature/TheBible First Beast of Revelation]] and is named for the [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Ogdoad]], who may or may not be their leader as Huanglongmon was to the Sovereigns (i.e. Huanglongmon and Ogudomon are both summoned in the card game by fusing any two members of their "subordinate" groups).

* SpecialGuest: Terry Bradshaw. Yes, the NFL's Terry Bradshaw. He used to host a Digithon (digimon marathon) on FoxKids. Not only that, it was a ''Super Bowl'' themed marathon, in which Bradshaw would provide commentary in-between episodes.

Masaru is a twist on the theme, same as his series in general: the kanji for his name is the same as the 'dai' in 'Daisuke,' but it's pronounced differently depending on whether it stands by itself or is part of a compound word. Not to mention his surname is '''Da'''imon ('''Da'''mon, in the dub).

* EnergeticOutstandingOrange: Agumon is the leading Digimon of the group in both ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Adventure]]'' and ''[[Anime/DigimonSavers Savers]]'', associated with the Crest of Courage, and as such (along with PlayingWithFire) he's mainly colored orange to reflect his spirit and determination, just as their tamers (Taichi and Masaru). His evolutions are all also colored mainly orange.

** Goggles. They're so iconic, most people associate these with the show, and the TheOtherWiki mentions it in their "Goggles" article. In-universe, it is the mark of TheLeader among the various Digidestined/Tamers. Only one [[Anime/DigimonSavers season]] broke with the tradition, but subsequent seasons brought the goggles back.

Licensing-wise, the franchise has generally fallen under the umbrella of [[Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment Bandai Namco]], but the anime has been in sketchier territory; the rights originally belonged to Creator/SabanEntertainment before being shifted to {{Creator/Disney}} after its dissolution in 2003. Disney handled the franchise's dubbing for a period until Creator/SabanBrands reacquired the English rights to the franchise in 2012. The dub as a whole, however, was subject to KeepCirculatingTheTapes during periods of non-airing, as it never received a formal home video release until New Video Group's DVD releases in 2013. Official subtitles of [[BlindIdiotTranslation volatile quality]] are few and far between, with ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', and ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' being streamed by {{Creator/Funimation}}, {{Creator/Hulu}}, and {{Crunchyroll}} respectively.
