** Finally, note that the tamers don't have a direct control over digivolution unless they use the cards, unlike the the Digidestined/Chosen Children.

*** Cyberdramon is made up of two Digimon. [[SealedEvilInACan One of them]] is literally impossible to defeat. This means that the only people who can put up an actual fight against him are people who can ''make it'' possible to defeat him. This means that if Cyberdramon wants an actual challenge instead of just loading the data of Digimon who can't win, he needs to find some gods to fight. In DigimonTamers that means the Sovereign, the D-Reaper and possibly Megidramon.

* Takato is sent into a [[spoiler:murderous rage when Beelzemon kills Leomon. Later, Takato admits to Jeri that he loved her and was heartbroken to see her lose her partner.]]

* The DubNameChange to Henry and Suzie actually is a case of the English dub names being more realistic because they're from Hong Kong. It is very common for people from HK to have Western first names since it was a British colony for nearly a century.

* On a lighter note--[[NeverLiveItDown for a given value of lighter]]--there's the fact that hacking into the D-Reaper's signal televised the final battle to everyone in Japan, including from inside the Tamers' biomerged forms. In other words, potentially millions of people--including friends and relatives--have ''seen our heroes [[OutOfClothesExperience naked]].''
** Further, remember the dub changed their age from 10 to 12.

** While not outright stated, Runaway Locomon heavily implies that her parents didn't just get a divorce, but that her father walked out on them when she was very young.

* The D-Reaper is impossible for the Tamers to really damage or defeat until a way appears/is created to ''make'' it possible. Causing this to happen is explicitly Ryo Akiyama's ability, and why he got dragged in to save the DigimonAdventure universe four times even though he didn't even have his own digivice or partner Digimon and got his ass kicked by [[DigimonAdventure Mimi]] in the probably-canon route of the third game. In DigimonTamersBraveTamer there is a timeline where Takato has never heard of anyone named Ryo Akiyama, because Ryo doesn't go to the DigimonTamers timeline until [[TimeyWimeyBall the end of that game]]. That means that in the original DigimonTamers timeline, the D-Reaper may have remained invulnerable, erased the digital world and continued slowly engulfing the earth until [[SummonBiggerFish someone]] showed up in 2004 and oneshotted it... so he could first [[MultiversalConquerer conquer]] and then destroy the DigimonTamers universe himself in order to replace it [[CosmicRetcon with a new history]].
** A brainwashed clone of Takato, along with a copy of Guilmon, is one of [[BigBad ZiydMillenniummon's]] minions in DigimonTamersBraveTamer. That would imply Takato survived to 2004 and was part of the resistance, only to end up captured or killed and his remains experimented on.

** The veteran Ryo is absolutely casual about most threats, for instance a Knightmon that might want to decapitate him in his sleep, but views the threat of the D-Reaper as a deadly serious one, fighting the D-Reaper's agents solo for days while the other Tamers relaxed. It also really doesn't occur to Ryo to ask for help from either the Tamers or Hypnos, and while he helps them he doesn't really expect them to help him. This is because he's fought a god that wanted to conquer/destroy the world four times before, and three out of the four times he had no human help whatsoever (and then it was [[Digimon02 Ken]], who was a little kid and it [[TakingTheBullet really]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy didn't]] end well). He's been pulled right back into the mindset of those wars, and the idea of being part of a team doesn't occur to him because [[ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne it was never an option before]].

** It's been remarked that despite being a card game champion, Ryo's digi-modifications are very cheap tactics: he basically just uses OP cards to deliver beat-downs that are as brutal and efficient as possible. This absolutely makes sense for a veteran of ''four wars'' who's been wandering around in the Digital World getting constantly attacked by Digimon that want to go to the real world for over a year. This is not a game to him, there are no points for style, nobody cares about fighting fair; there is only overkill and not enough kill. When Rika wants to make Jeri stronger, she starts teaching her the rules. When Ryo wants to up the odds that Suzy will live through this, he hands her one of the more OP cards in existence so she can kill anything that looks at her funny (of course, Suzy is too young for elaborate tactics). He does not like it when Kazu and Kenta talk about using digi-modify cards in real Digimon battles as an extension of the card game. The Digimon Tamer he connects best with Rika, who believed at the beginning of the series that Digimon fights were 'kill or be killed.'
