* ThrowItIn: Konaka [[WhatCouldHaveBeen originally did not intend for Suzie Wong to become a Tamer ]]. However, when he saw that the animators included her in the opening with a digivices, he decided to give her one in the show. See Chiaki J.

A lot of her comedy moments were this, too-- the character designer "couldn't stop" drawing pictures of her playing with Terriermon, and Konaka felt "it would be criminal" not to use them.

* ActorAllusion: Possibly to Bridget Hoffman, the voice actress for Jeri, also worked on another Chiaki J. Konaka production, voicing the eponymous Lain. Definitely in the case of Creator/YokoAsada, who voiced Jeri in ''Tamers'' and Alice in ''Lain''.

* CreativeDifferences: Tamers owes its very existence to this. To recap, many of the staff including Konaka which were originally apart of the main staff for Anime/DigimonAdventure02 were upset about the ExecutiveMeddling and so they were about to quit the project even though they were under contract. So instead of letting them just leave and break contract, Bandai gave them and Konaka the next series, and then gave them the room to plan it out the way they wanted. * DependingOnTheWriter: Although at first glance the Ryo that appears in Tamers has a different personality from the one in the game, he was in fact written by the same person who wrote his character in the games, according to the main writer.

* WriterRevolt: Konaka wasn't pleased when Bandai [[ExecutiveMeddling forced him to include]] [[TheAce Ryo Akiyama]] in Tamers. While he did comply by adding in Ryo as they wanted, Konaka deliberately minimized the amount of screen time and importance that Bandai wanted him to have in Tamer's plot.
