* AwesomeEgo: [[spoiler: Chaos]] may be ''outrageously'' cocky but he's so damn charismatic and funny that this only serves to ''enhance'' his appeal
* ComeForTheXStayForTheY: Come for the insanely hilarious antics and touchingly realistic romance. Stay for the incredibly engaging plot.
* CompleteMonster:
** [[spoiler: The fake Gennai]]. What he does to [[spoiler: Mimi]] is quite possibly the most disturbing act of callousness in the entire ''franchise'' (canon included).
** [[spoiler: [[BigBad Daemon]]]] definitely counts as well. There is nothing he cares about more than inflicting as much suffering as possible, and he is perfectly willing to slaughter thousands [[spoiler: including a seven year old girl]] in order to get what he wants.
** The Nightmare is another example, an AxCrazy, digital, HumanoidAbomination that delights in causing pain to others so that it can enjoy their reactions. Takato even says that it's worse than '''''D-Reaper'''''
* CrossesTheLineTwice: ''Theory Of Chaos''.
* CultClassic: ''Tamers Forever'' could be seen as a CultClassic among ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' fan fiction circles. It's not as well known as some other Digifics out there, But it is absolutely adored by those who have read it. (Just look at the reviews ''Silent Sorrow'' recieved)
* GrowingTheBeard:
** Although ''Tamers Forever'' is an undoubtedly fun and surprisingly well written series, it's still fairly average, until ''"Forget the Y2K, This is Madness!!"'', whereupon the series adopts a quality of story-telling that is on par if not better than that of professional authors.
** Then along comes ''Silent Sorrow'', which takes EmotionalTorque UpToEleven, throws in a fantastically deep and complicated plot and wonderfully insightful CharacterDevelopment and tops it all of by having a ridiculously large HolyShitQuotient, essentially growing a beard so massive, it could be used as a rope ladder to heaven.
* HilariousInHindsight: Rika's comment in the anime episode "To Fight or Not to Fight" becomes rather amusing when you find out [[spoiler:[[PhysicalGod just how powerful Terriermon is]]]]:
--> [[spoiler: ''Don't make me laugh, you honestly think that weeny little bunny can stand up to Renamon?'']]
* HolyShitQuotient: ''Silent Sorrow'' has a rather large quantity of this thanks to it's '''long''' string of {{Tear Jerker}}s, NightmareFuel moments, {{Wham Episode}}s, {{Wham Line}}s and {{Awesome Moment}}s
* IronWoobie: Takato could be the poster boy for this trope, the amount of physical and mental torment he suffers through over the course of the series must be seen to be believed, but he takes it all on with a ''smile'' on his face. Seriously, the kid is a walking talking CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* JerkassWoobie: Rika, ''oh dear god'', '''''RIKA'''''!! She is self-centered and mean with an outrageous competitive streak. But it is '''''physically impossible''''' to read ''Silent Sorrow'' and not have your heart ache for her after seeing what the author puts her through.
* LaughablyEvil: Even if he's not technically ''evil'', there is no denying that [[spoiler: Chaos]] is absolutely hilarious.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Averted.
* LoveItOrHateIt: If the two reviews it's received on this site are anything to go by.
* MagnificentBastard: [[spoiler: Chaos]]. Let's break it down, shall we? He has spent centuries manipulating humanity's most powerful figureheads in order to create worldwide chaos,. He is a [[CombatPragmatist ruthless tactician]] and a nigh unstoppable BadAss. Not to mention being [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys quite a hit with the ladies]]. (Although how much of that last part is simply his own bragging is up for debate). And he tops it all of by being [[DeadpanSnarker witty]], [[LaughablyEvil funny]], [[AwesomeEgo charismatic]] and all in all, just [[EvilIsCool a joy to watch]]
* MagnumOpus: ''Silent Sorrow'', the final and by far the meatiest of the five books.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: ''Tamers Forever'' was originally intended to be a mere side project while the author overcame his writers block.
* MartyStu: Thanks to his greatly increased skill as a tamer, status as TheChosenOne, NiceGuy personality, CharacterShilling, and lack of any [[FatalFlaw obvious flaws]], it's easy to see Takato as an extreme case of this trope.
* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: [[BigBad Daemon]]]] crosses this when he [[spoiler: tries to kill Suzie Wong]]
** [[spoiler: The Fake Gennai]] crosses over when he [[spoiler: kidnaps Mimi's unborn child]]
* TheWoobie: You can't help but feel sorry for Pauline once it's revealed that [[spoiler: she desperately loves Takeru but she can never be with him, because she's just a computer program.]]
* {{Wangst}} An in-universe example. Takeru calls ''himself'' out on this:
--> ''I wish we could switch places. If my death could save the world, I'd gladly give my life. I have nothing left here. Not anymore. But you're still so young. You could be so happy…you would make her so happy. But I can't. You're the one who has to die, and I have to stay and live this empty, meaningless life. And I'm a bastard for feeling sorry for me when you're the one who I should worry the most for. You're the one who is going to die, but my heart cries for my living. I'm worthless.''
