* AngstWhatAngst: Taiki and Zenjirou don't seem too upset about being stuck in an entirely different world away from everything they hold dear. Akari, on the other hand...
* AnticlimaxBoss:
** Kongoumon. Despite having an entire swarm of [=GranKuwagamon=] in his disposal, he was [[CurbStompBattle Curb Stomped]] by Beelzebumon, just one [=DigiXros=] with Revolmon and he one-shotted every enemy in the army, including this guy. Kiriha also defeated him easily, to the point [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome the episode didn't even bother showing the battle]].
** [=DarknessBagramon=] also suffered from this in the finale. Not because he was weak like Kongoumon, but due to Taiki [[spoiler:using the unified Code Crown to combine every Digimon in the world into one being. Unsurprisingly, he goes down in one attack]].
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** The evolution theme ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQKq7Nt8v28 We Are Xros Heart!]]''.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_V4E4CHun9c [=X4B=] The Guardian]]'' definitely counts as this.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq9aYcOSIy0 Sky-Dancing Hero! [=X5=]!]]'' also fits, complete with sounding like a SuperRobot opening!
*** They're sung by KOUJI WADA. Of course they're awesome.
** Blazing Blue Flare is pretty damn cool as well.
** Adding ''yet another'' evolution theme to the mix, we've got ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OV9pRh5ZOs Evolution & [=DigiXros=] - ver. TAIKI]]'', an insanely HotBlooded duet between Kouji Wada and Tanimoto Takayoshi. Toei really is spoiling us with all these epic insert-songs.
*** The 2 of them have another duet, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpDYg_WK6rU&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL Evolution & [=DigiXros=] - ver. KIRIHA]]'', which sadly has only appeared in one episode so far (episode 32).
** And to top it all off, we get ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxBQPjVWspM&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL We Are Xros Heart! - ver. [=X7=]]]''. But honestly, what else would you expect from a new rendition of an already awesome song, sung by not just Kouji Wada and Takayoshi Tanimoto, but ''AYUMI MIYAZAKI as well?!''
* BrokenBase: As with virtually every series since the second, some fans have lambasted it for [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks being different from its predecessors.]]
* ContinuityPorn: Oh boy. Where to start?
** In the manga, anyway.
** With the end of said manga, we now have know how ''ALL'' digimon continuities are tied together. Making the finale of the second season of the anime (and presence of many characters in it) much less absurd.
* CrackPairing: Any ship between a human and a Digimon, though most notable are [[http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=43064141 Taiki/Shoutmon]] and [[http://frank-einstein.deviantart.com/art/nee-nee-270675539 Nene/Sparrowmon]].
* EarWorm: DONDOKODONDOKO DONDOKOMON!
* EnsembleDarkHorse:
** Nene Amano is loved by many.
** As well as Blastmon. '''''BURARARARARARA-BLASTMON IS HERE!'''''
** Lunamon, to the extent that {{Shipping}} [[ViewerGenderConfusion him/her]] and Shoutmon is already rather common.
** [[MagnificentBastard DarkKnightmon]] is one of the more popular villains in the series thanks to his regal composure, imposing appearance and cunning plans.
* EpilepticTrees: [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Taichi]] appearing in the [=X Arena=] game as a boss, who [=DigiXrosses=] [=WarGreymon=] and [=MetalGarurumon=] into Omegamon. This never had any impact on the series, but it's very easy to see why the trees kicked in. [[spoiler:Given that he's going to show up in ''Young Hunters'' for at least one episode, though, it wasn't completely unfounded either!]]
* EvilIsSexy: Lilithmon, obviously. She's the Demon Lord of lust, for chrissakes.
* FanPreferredCouple: Despite being a series mainly focused on fighting and RuleOfCool, ''Xros Wars'' gets its fair share of shipping.
** [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Taiki/Akari]].
** [[BirdsOfAFeather Kiriha/Nene]].
* FridgeBrilliance: At first it seems like the animators have forgotten about Dorulumon in episode 15, but then you realize that to avoid causing damage on the statues due to his [[CanisMajor size]], he's most likely kept in Taiki's Xros Loader.
** Taiki's second outfit has a jagged white line separating the red and blue portions of his shirt. In circuit design, zig-zags symbolize a component called a resistor - a fitting symbol for the man leading the resistance.
** Similarly, an Omega appears on Taiki's Xros Loader when evolving Shoutmon, and a Z appears on Kiriha's Xros Loader when evolving [=MetalGreymon=]. Omega was possibly chosen as a nod to Omegamon, and Kiriha's Z is possibly a parallel to Taiki's omega. Alternatively, though, Omega is the symbol for an ohm, the physical unit of electrical resistance. Z is the variable most commonly used to represent impedence, which is the effective resistance of a given circuit component.
* FridgeHorror: In most versions of episode 19 Deckerdramon tells [=DarkKnightmon=] he refuses to be a part of his team because he can sense no love in his heart. However, in the english dub Deckerdramon declines because he can't even sense [=DarkKnightmon's=] heart to begin with. Basically meaning [=DarkKnightmon=] has no actual ''soul'' to speak of.
* FridgeLogic: When it's believed that Olegmon's hypnotic waves are less effective on machine-type Digimon like Ballistamon, Kiriha suggests that they attack with Cyberdramon in the lead, as his body is more like a machine than the others... this is coming from the General with [=MailBirdramon=], a ''pure Machine-type Digimon'', on his team.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Episode 30, where the kids have returned to Tokyo. Tactimon rampages the whole place, obliterating buildings and even destroying a bridge. The Tohoku earthquake struck just ''three days later''. That's got to be some kind of record.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** In episode 10 Baalmon/Reapmon offers to form an alliance with Lilithmon/Laylamon. Lilithmon even teases Baalmon a little by claiming he must have a crush on her. Three episodes later Baalmon learns that Lilithmon was responsible for [[spoiler: murdering all his comrades including the closest thing he had to a father figure and the loss of his home]].
** Even worse in the english dub. When the pair meet up again in episode 13, after Reapmon had just explained his DarkAndTroubledPast to Mikey.
--> '''Laylamon''': Sit back and enjoy the show Reapmon. Should be your cup of tea, it all ends in ''[[DudeNotFunny ruin!]]''
* HilariousInHindsight:
** ChikaSakamoto is voicing Shoutmon... who also voiced [[{{Zambot3}} Kappei]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' games. And Shoutmon is essentially the "lead pilot" of the various [=Shoutmon X=] [=DigiXrosses=].
** One of [=Shoutmon X5=]'s attack is [[MegatonPunch Meteor Impact]]. He is only able to do it with Sparrowmon, a bird-themed Digimon. Said punch has only been used twice, both on [[OlympusMons very powerful Digimon]] (one was absorbing data of the Zone and the other was able to live in Digital Space). Said attack is referred to as [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Sparrow Punch]].
** What keeps happening to [=IceDevimon=] becomes even funnier when you look back at what [[Anime/DigimonTamers IceDevimon's]] [[Anime/DigimonFrontier previous appearances]] have been like.
** [=NeoVamdemon=] kidnaps a bunch of Lopmons [[spoiler:to forcefully [=DigiXros=] them to him to grant him immortality]]. The episode that reveals this aired in Easter Sunday. Lopmons are essentially chocolate bunnies; note that they evolve from a Digimon literally named "'''Choco'''mon".
* HolyShitQuotient: The Xros Wars [[ComicBookAdaptation Manga Adaptation]] started just like the anime, then it quickly went its own way with the plot and has not looked back since then, steadily rising the quotient with its own departures from the anime plot. It then literally ''rocketed'' from chapter 16 onwards, starting with the battle against Lilithmon's army, to an even larger scale battle involving Machinedramons (the original version) and Kimeramons, [[spoiler: to Tactimon unsheathing his BFS and beating up Shoutmon X7, to an [[UpToEleven even larger scale battle]] involving everyone's super evolutions, the Royal Knights, several Milleniumons and '''then''' ... Dark Knightmon ''snaps'', leading to the appearance of Zeed Milleniummon. Had it been animated, the quotient would definitely be 1.]]
** [[spoiler: Shoutmon X7 Superior Mode is this in both the anime and the manga, literally being a fusion of every single digimon in the entire digital world besides the big bad's. Considering that the digital World here is seperated into different zones, all with there own set of outer space, it really makes the digital world that much bigger.]]
* HoYay: As traditional it's already starting to hint at TheHero[=/=]TheLancer (but as usual, it's probably not serious).
** ...Or not. The character map at the beginning of episode 7 shows Kiriha staring at a drawing of Taiki with the caption "My Taiki", making this an AscendedMeme. In the same image, there's also a music note floating over his head.
** The manga follows on this too, having Kiriha call Taiki his "beloved" (much to everyone else's surprise). He immediatly says it was just a joke, but...
** Blastmon and Tactimon enjoy some nice bromance... or so Blastmon thinks. He also enjoys being loved by male Digimon like Scorpiomon, Cyberdramon and even Bagramon!
*** In one later episode, he hits on Beelzebumon, calling him "sexy." In the middle of battle.
** Dorulumon shares a...rather obvious blush for Cutemon's begging face in episode 27
* LesYay: With Nene and Akari in Chapter 6 of the manga.
** They also had some moments in episode 23, [[spoiler: what with Akari becoming good friends with Nene and actually being the one to [[DefrostingIceQueen defrost]] her.]]
** One could make a case of Nene and [[spoiler:Mervamon]] as well.
** And Nene and Sparrowmon, [[DubText at least in the dub]].
* IKnewIt: It is this for GenreSavvy ''Digimon'' fans when it is revealed in episode 30 that Shoutmon could evolve into [=OmegaShoutmon=].
* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Everyone seems to be obsessed with Taiki.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Yeah, like you would actually kill Shoutmon with that sting, Flymon! [[spoiler:He did, and Shoutmon felt excruciating pain and almost died, had Whamon not give his ambergris]].
* MagnificentBastard: [=DarkKnightmon=]
* MaryTzu: Tactimon.
* MartyStu: Taiki is often accused of being this, the most common accusation is him coming off as too perfect and not having any character flaws.
* MemeticBadass: Tactimon.
* MemeticSexGoddess: Lillithmon, [[EvilIsSexy obviously]].
* MoralEventHorizon: Despite not doing much, many people were calling for [[spoiler: [=ChuuChuumon's=]]] head [[spoiler: when he just sat there, bored, watching Damemon slowly die from his wounds. Thus, [=ChuuChuumon's=] eventual death was very satisfying.]]
* ParanoiaFuel: According to their Digimon profile, for every single Monitamon able to be seen in plain sight, there are 30 more hidden.
* PoorMansSubstitute: Blastmon's voice actor, Creator/DaisukeKishio, sounds like he's trying to imitate {{Norio Wakamoto}}; it's actually impressive, considering how his voice comes quite close to Wakamoto's.
* {{Squick}}: Mugendramon's... face, after a part of its helmet plating has been removed. [[FridgeHorror Now just imagine those supposed robot characters being cyborgs]]. On the other hand, that specific example is exclusive to ''Xros Wars'', since the original Mugendramon was specifically a combination of machine parts.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: "Sayonara, Lopmon."]]
** Episode 14 when [[spoiler: Baalmon nearly dies saving Shoutmon X4 and the others from Lilithmon's attack]] while still dying from the injuries he sustained the previous episode.
** Many of the scenes between Shoutmon and Ballistamon in Episodes 40 and 41.
** [[spoiler:Deckerdramon's HeroicSacrifice in episode 43.]]
** [[spoiler:In episode 48, Beelzebumon goes and [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] himself ''again''. Except this time there is no {{Reincarnation}}.]]
** [[spoiler:And in episode 49, we have both the deaths of Apollomon ''and'' Damemon in rapid succession.]]
* TheyJustDidntCare: Even though the original Japanese version is (as of this writing) available to view legally on Crunchyroll (for free even), and even though that version came first, Saban Brands still made alterations, and additions to the show, some of which were necessary or at the very least understandble (e.g., altering "Deputymon" to look less realistic), but most of which didn't need to be done, including one '''''[[{{Macekre}} major]]''''' change in one episode[[note]]Akari / Angie telling Zenjiro / Jeremy that he "doesn't know Japanese", implying the {{Americanitis}} trope, even though previous Digimon series have admitted to taking place in Japan.[[/note]]. Because the Japanese version is available to watch legally, more people know about what was being done to the show, yet, for all intents and purposes, Saban Brands essentially pretended as though the original version never existed.
* TooCoolToLive: [[spoiler:Grademon]]
* ToughActToFollow: Contrary to popular belief amongst fans, ''Xros Wars'' was this to the Digimon franchise to that point, as it had some of the worst ratings of any Franchise/{{Digimon}} season. For scope of how bad this was, ''Anime/DigimonSavers'''s highest ratings were twice that of ''Xros Wars''. Also contrary to popular belief, it wasn't title and time slot changes that started it, as even before then this series's ratings was still the lowest of the franchise: this reached it's pinnacle as of Anime/DigimonXrosWarsTheYoungHuntersLeapingThroughTime, which didn't even have good merchandising (which was ''Xros Wars'' biggest success) to keep it afloat.
* TroperCriticalMass: It may not have been anywhere near as big a mass as other, more popular works would normally get, but note that all the ''Xros Wars''' pages are significantly longer and more trope-heavy than their equivalents for any other ''Digimon'' work on this wiki... ''Young Hunters'' may be heading the same way.
* UglyCute: The Gaossmon in the Blue Flare army. They're basically walking mouths with dinosaur legs and tails, but somehow, they manage to be somewhat endearing.
* TheUntwist: Come on, ''who'' was surprised when it was revealed [[spoiler: that Lucemon was evil]]? ''IT'S FREAKING [[spoiler: [[LightIsNotGood Lucemon! The most effective former BigBad in ''Digimon'' history!]] He's named after {{Satan}} for crying out loud]]''!
** Hell, basic religion knowledge will already help many older viewers figure out something is wrong with many digimon behaviors like [[spoiler:Lucemon being good]] and [[spoiler:Apollomon being considered evil]]
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Cutemon, Sparrowmon and Lunamon all look girly and have an effeminate tone in their voice and use ''[[{{Bokukko}} boku]]''. However, Cutemon has been confirmed to be a male. Lunamon and Sparrowmon are yet to be confirmed, but because they both use ''"boku"'', they are considered male.
** [[ShesAManInJapan The dub identifies Sparrowmon as female]].
** Lunamon has a thing for Shoutmon. So going by the pattern of this series, [[HoYay Lunamon might be a boy]]. However, Lunamon are traditionally female, so this Lunamon is either a {{Bokukko}} with a PrecociousCrush or a young male digimon with a case of hero worship (or this is an example of HoYay).
** Don't let the fashionable hot pink collar confuse you, Lilithmon calls Mugendramon a "good boy".
