* ChestBlaster: A common type of attack, special mention to Metalgreymon's missiles that fire from this pecs.

*** Also inverted. The most famous example is MetalGreymon, who has tremendous power for a Perfect level. Evolving to [=WarGreymon=] causes him to lose power rating and have a shorter lifespan compared to other Ultimate levels. Since similar digimon, such as AeroV-Dramon and Cyberdramon, also shared this pattern, V-Pet fans took to calling it the [[FanNickname MetalGreymon Meltdown]]

*** MetalGreymon's attacks are directly compared to individual nuclear warheads in Digimon canon. Basically, SkullGreymon can shoot one nuke total, MetalGreymon can shoot several.

* CharacterFocus: The show may be titled "Digimon", but make no mistake, it's about the humans. Most allied Digimon only serve either to reflect their human partners or serve as {{Foil}}s. From ''Adventure'' to ''Xros Wars'', you could count the number of major Digimon with actual backstories on one hand[[note]][[Anime/DigimonAdventure Gatomon]], [[Anime/DigimonTamers Impmon]], [[Anime/DigimonSavers BanchoLeomon]], [[Anime/DigimonXrosWars Ballistamon, Cutemon and Dorulumon]][[/note]]. In fact, when allied Digimon do get characterization, it usually comes out of nowhere, like [[DigimonAdventure02 Veemon's crush on Gatomon]].

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Digimon as a franchise tends to sample foreign words for its monsters' names. Which can cause problems when the franchise insists on translating these same words into Japanese kana and ''then'' into English text. You get official names like "Orgemon" for what should be "''Ogre''mon". Probably the most amusing is when the Digimon [=SlashAngemon=] was given the name [=''Slush''Angemon=] for ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars''.

* AlternativeForeignThemeSong: In the English version, an action-oriented rap song is used for the first three seasons, an epic chant for ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'', and a rock song for ''Anime/DigimonSavers''.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityLockout: Every piece of Digimon media is canon in some way, resulting in ''Tamers'' referencing a Wonderswan game, several concepts that were formerly game-only or anime-only appearing in other media, and the ''Story'' and ''World'' games connecting with previous, family-friendly installments despite the audience shift towards adults. Getting the complete Digimon experience will require a ''lot'' of effort.

* GodzillaThreshold: Alphamon of the Royal Knights is a living example of this, since the only times he can exist are when the Digital World is facing a massive crisis.
