''Franchise/{{Digimon}}: Digital Card Battle'' is the second [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Digimon card battling game]] penned by the same creators of the original DigimonWorld. (The first card battle game [[NoExportForYou was never exported.]]) Though similar to the Digimon TCG at the time (a card from which is included with the game as a bonus for purchase) it is actually a different, much simpler card battler. With stellar 3D battle animations, a soundtrack that includes songs from DigimonAdventure (Well, [[BadExportForYou in Japan, anyways]]) and fun, fast-paced gameplay, it has become a cult hit among Digimon fans.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: The Big Bad's game strategy. He not only makes use of most of the cards listed in the GameBreaker section, but also hacks the game allowing him to always draw the same sequence of cards in such way he can play some of the most powerful Ultimate level Digimon in the game in a single turn and easily replace them if they are destroyed. It can backfire, however, if the player has a Hacking card in his deck. He will also put you partner cards at the very end of your deck which is not necessarly a bad thing if your strategy don't rely on them as it will thin out your deck.

''Franchise/{{Digimon}}: Digital Card Battle'' is a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Digimon card battling game]] penned by the same creators of Digital World 1, and resolves it's storyline [[spoiler: since the final boss is A (Analogman)]]. Unlike it's ancestor, however, this game doesn't have any bugs to speak of; it's actually one of the best electronic card games ever made, adapting the Digimon card game (of 2000) perfectly, being fairly challenging as well as requiring plenty of strategy.

It also innovated by introducing the option to render in 3D the exchange of blows, a feature which is oddly similar to the card battle in the first episode of ''Anime/DigimonTamers''. Furthermore, every Digimon has their own unique attack animations, a feature which was surprisingly not implemented in Digimon world 2 and 3 (both more recent). On the other hand, it's environment isn't very inspiring, the story is loose and the music is lacking (probably due to the spent budget on animated battles).

Overall, being a game about Digimon card battles means that it had only access to a small market. Thus its sales were not impressive and the game is quite rare, but some gamers still have some interest in it.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Some of the most powerful cards in this game require a very high amount of DP to be played. Perhaps the best example may be Apocalymon, his card has the highest HP in the game, his first attack gives 990 damage (the highest natural amount) and it has the self-destruct ability, but it also requires 90 DP points to be used. A battle will most likely be already over by this point.
** Sadly, it doesn't say that its immune to [[LethalJokeCharacter Toy-Agumon.]]
* BoringButPractical: One of the most common deck for in-game playthrough: 3 partner cards, 27 Option cards. With armor digivolve, this guarantees a faster exp gain for partner digimon, and a strong starting digimon with multiple ways of buffing your offense and survivability, except for a very rare case of milling most of your deck.
** Apparently the developer saw this kind of deck coming. One of the opponent is Wiseman Tower have a deck that is made specifically to counter these decktypes.
* BossRush: There's at least one in every city of the game, you must defeat all your opponents in a row in order to get your passport to the next one.

* DeathByIrony: The final boss is a computer programmer, as well as a cheating bastard and the most effective strategy against him is the ''hacking'' card which works by inflicting HoistByHisOwnPetard on the opponent. Even more so considering that many players maximize the effect by using rookies, AKA the [[CherryTapping weakest monsters.]]

** First town allow you to grind for Option Cards, some of which have INSANE effect. Grind a bit here, and you know the drill.
** As for Rookie, theres Toy-Agumon whose support effect instantly drops both side's HP into 200. It is practically a OneHitKill card, and since its a rookie, its ridiculously easy to get.

** It is unavoidable since you can only choose 3 out of the 6 Digimon partners available during the gameplay, so regardless of your choice you will never be able to get 3 of them. You, however, can get their data by [[GuideDangIt defeating certain chosen children a certain number of times]], but it is just for {{One Hundred Percent Completion}}, you will never be able to really use them in your main deck.

** The most annoying example would be Wormmon, who only has one chance to be chosen unlike the other five.
