Added DiffLines:

** Antylamon ''is'' a rabbit, and there ''is'' a rabbit in the Chinese zodiac, which ''does'' make her a deva, but the rabbit represents peace therein, so Lopmon's coding gave her a predisposition to goodness, and her making a HeelFaceTurn isn't surprising at all.

** It's also pretty common for Asians who emigrate to take on a western nickname in order make socialization with westerners easier.

* Why don't we ever see Ruki's father? Her parents might be divorced, but it should be pretty well known by the end of the series that the kids are going to risk their lives to save the city. It's just a little disturbing that he doesn't show up, not even ONCE, to maybe see his daughter off one last time. If I were Ruki I might be slightly traumatized by this. Both parents of every other Tamer (with possible exception of Ryo?) show up except for hers.

* Janyu unleashing the Juggernaut program was just about the worst thing he could've done, as not were the Tamer's Digimon gone, which was the primary line of defense against the D-Reaper, and other digimon-related, but Cyberdramon was affected by it as well, meaning that best-case scenario, he regresses into [[VideoGame/DigimonWonderswanSeries Millenniumon]], which is a ''much'' greater threat to that particular digital world, than the D-Reaper ever was, dwarfing the Sovereign and Deva in power. Far more realistically, he'll be regressed into the evil god [[EldritchAbomination Zeed]][[RealityWarper Mille]][[TimeMaster nniumon]], which is ''much, much worse'', as that way, no Digital or Real world, or anyone in them, are safe. [[NightmareRetardant Fortunately, they did return]].

* In [[VideoGame/DigimonTamersBraveTamer Brave Tamer]], we see [[BadassAdorable Monodramon]] and [[MultiversalConqueror ZeedMillenniumon]] undergo a [[FusionDance Jogress]], leaving Monodramon as the Rookie-level, and Mille as the Mega. Cyberdramon, the Ultimate-level is a BloodKnight, while Monodramon is much less agressive. [[OhCrap Try not to think about what'll happen, when Cyberdramon reaches Mega.]]

* This needs to be said Guilmon's first three forms have no profile until Takato scans him. The two exaptions are Gallantmon and Megidramon. If it was just Gallantmon it would have been a nice bit of foreshadowing that Guilmon might have a bit of backstory as a reborn royal knight but Megidramon also has a profile that shows that A ABOMNATION THAT TORE APART REALITY existed before but it is toned down when you remember Gallantmon is a alternate form
** Perhaps a bit of Brilliance here, since Takato didn't design mega levels for Guilmon he just defaulted into the strongest pre-existing megas.
* Guilmon attempting to digivolve in the subway to impress a terrified passenger..funny at first. But if he succeeded? Two humans & a giant dinosaur in a narrow subway car..notgood.

*** While Juri's link with Leomon must have been strong since they understand and try to help each other in the '''''four months''''' [[HarsherInHindsight they've spent together]], I'm absolutely sure the twins didn't physically feel a thing (although watching beelzebumon on Tv [[NightmareFuel getting shreded]] [[HarmfulToMinors mustn't have been pleasant)]] since they didn't have a digivice yet. On another note, we've also found yet ''another'' reason for antylamon not going to the final battle.

* Mixed with FridgeBrilliance. When they are preparing to go to the Digital World is it presented like they are going to commit [[SuicidePact Group Suicide]]. Like Takato and his classmates writing notes that they are going far away together to their teacher, Ruki finally wearing the dress her mother chose for her, Terriermon suddenly being thankful to Shuichon, Jen being relieved and somewhat happier, Takato's parents different reactions to that he's going, Kenta leacing just a note, Juri not saying anything, etc.

** Programs like D-Reaper are called "Garbage Collectors" and are actually quite widespread - nowadays almost any computer has at least one. [[ParanoiaFuel any of them can potentially eat the world!]]

* Culumon is the catalyst of evolution given form in order to be sent to digital world. Of course, it wouldn't make sense for the Digimon to make themselves weaker and send their own power where themselves couldn't reach... unless (and note this is the only logical reason) there was something that would attack the digimon if they got to strong. The fridge hits when you [[JustForPun realize]] that the very first scene of the series {{Foreshadow}}s the [[BigBad D-Reaper's appearence and nature]], solely through Culumon's very existence.

* The shows' title as well as the [[ShowWithinAShow show that the children watched]] - for an explanation when the children in this series got their d-arcs they immediately refer to themselves as "Tamers", now as anyone who has actually played the games or owned the V-pets could tell you "Tamer" is the word they use to refer the child who partners with a digimon in the manuals of the V-pets, and what they also refer to the human player character as in the games. Now consider the theme of this series as well as how Jenrya and Ruki met their Digimon.

* Why were there some digimon in the city, if the Tamers were killing them? [[spoiler: Before they're deleted by Shaggai/Juggernaut, the Tamers had agreed on fighting those that needed to be fought, rather than because they're sopposed to. So, they spared those that weren´t violent.]]
* In the Tamer's movie Battle of Adventurer's, how could some digimon be so easily defeated? [[spoiler: as our war game showed us, digimon copies are more fragile than real digimon (which is why only the real Diaboromon/Diablomon survived), likely due to lacking something (a digicore?), but still having it's innate abilities.]]

* The scene where Henry runs into Yamaki in the park while alone is ''insanely'' creepy the first time you watch it since you can't know that he won't actually hurt the (openly terrified) kid and doesn't lose the FridgeHorror AdultFear in subsequent rewatches since you realize that even if Henry ''did'' fight back in a scenario where Yamaki actually was the villain he appeared to be, it's likely he'd lose the fight since he would be a kid with PTSD about hurting people with his martial arts fighting an adult who had every reason in the world to hurt him.

* "takatomon"? Guilmon's nickname for Takato early in the dub? extremely subtle foreshadowing for [[spoiler: matrix evolution.]] or maybe I'm reading too far into this. - bobofwoggle
