''Digimon X-Evolution'' is a stand alone film, completely unrelated to any ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' anime, instead being loosely inspired by [[AllThereInTheManual the Digimon Chronicle storyline]]. It is notable for being the first ''Digimon'' '''anything''' without any humans (the later ''VideoGame/DigimonWorld4'' also didn't have any humans, and it used sequences from this movie for its intro).

This movie further differs from the rest of ''Digimon'' in that it was done [[AllCGICartoon completely in CGI]] and [[NoExportForYou has never been dubbed into English]], possibly relating to either [[AmericansHateTingle how it was produced at a point when the franchise was in limbo in the western world]], or [[DarkerAndEdgier for its heightened level of violence]]. A [[FanSub fandub]] is currently being developed, but it is still very much a work in progress, with only three parts completed and uploaded onto [=YouTube=].

The Digital World has become overpopulated and Yggdrasil, the super computer in charge of overseeing the Digital World, has essentially run out of bandwidth. He thus takes his Royal Knights and a select few of the Digimon to a new, more easily processable Digital World, and then unleashes the X-virus to destroy all life on the original Digital World. However, several Digimon that were left behind develop the X-Antibody, an immunity against the virus. This antibody not only makes them immune to the virus, but also changed the Digimon who possessed it into more powerful forms, becoming X-Antibody Digimon.

After the virus runs its course, the X-Antibody Digimon manage to find their way to the new Digital World, kicking off a [[FantasticRacism racial divide]] between them and the original digimon chosen by Yggdrasil, who soon orders his Royal Knights to destroy them. The movie then focuses around Omegamon, Dukemon and Magnamon, three of the thirteen Royal Knights, as they try and come to terms with the orders given to them by Yggdrasil.

As these events occur, the plot follows a young X-Antibody Digimon named [=DORUmon=] as he wanders the new Digital World, stumbling into conflicts between the X-Antibody resistance and the Royal Knights. In doing so, he comes to care for and protect a young Tokomon, and also embark on a quest to discover his true heritage.

!!Tropes present in ''Digimon X-Evolution'':
* AllThereInTheManual: If you didn't know a Mushmon was a Mushmon or a Tyranomon was a Tyranomon, you'd need to look those up yourself - unlike any other Digimon movie or show, names are almost never called out, nor are there handy subtitles or cue cards telling you who's who. Hell, it's difficult to find the name of ''the main character''! [[labelnote:*]]Until he evolves to Alphamon, DORUmon's name is mentioned only once or twice, and only by the Royal Knights when [=DORUmon=] himself is nowhere in sight.[[/labelnote]]
* ArtShift: Unlike all the other Digimon series, this movie uses CGI animation instead of the normal hand drawn style.
* BackFromTheDead: Several characters come back from the dead, usually getting a new X-Antibody. And [[UnexplainedRecovery usually coming back unexplained.]]
* BadassArmFold: Dukemon is usually in this pose when outside of combat.
* BadassCape: Omegamon, Dukemon, and Alphamon all have these.
* BashBrothers: [=WarGreymon=] X and [=MetalGarurumon=] X
* {{BFS}}:
** Alphamon, full stop. Almost crosses into ImprobableWeaponUser as his sword looks more like an ax... that's as tall as he is.
** Dukemon X gets one, as well. It doubles over with LaserSword.
* BigDamnHeroes: Several of them.
** [=MetalGarurumon=] X [[spoiler: came back from the dead]] for his moment. Needless to say, this movie is filled with [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] and badasses.
** [[spoiler: Special points to Dukemon X's one from nowhere, vaporising a swarm of [=Death-X-DORUGreymon=] with his Final Elysium.]]
* CallingYourAttacks: As with any self-respecting Digimon series.
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler: Dukemon zig-zags this trope. Technically, he didn't die, since his body disappeared, but the X-Antibody that he obtained gave him a massive power boost upon his return.]]
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Pretty much the entire point of Tokomon.
* CurbStompBattle: When Omegamon and Alphamon go to confront [[spoiler: Yggdrasil]], they get attacked by one of his monsters. Omegamon attacks head on, and gets his ass handed to him for awhile. Cue Alphamon jumping in and defeating the thing in less then ten seconds.
** Omegamon versus everything else is one.
** One battle with [=DORUmon=] consists of [=DORUmon=] and Tokomon repeatedly getting smacked back into a tree.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Alphamon had to [[spoiler: kill himself and allow Omegamon to delete ''everything'']] in order to achieve the happy ending.
* EleventhHourSuperpower:
** [[spoiler: Dorumon]] doesn't digivolve to Alphamon until the last ten minutes.
** Also, [[spoiler: Omegamon gets the X-Antibody and becomes Omegamon X, becoming ''much'' stronger]].
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Brought to you courtesy of [[spoiler:Yggdrasil]].
* EnemyWithout: Alphamon realizes during his fight with [[spoiler:[=Death-X-mon=]]], that they are connected. So what does he do? He [[spoiler: impales Yggdrasil and himself on his sword, effectively killing them both]].
* EverythingFades: Aversion, here the dead leave their bodies behind. [[spoiler: [[NotQuiteDead This is really important]]]]
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: [[ResetButton ALL DELETE]]
* GoodSamaritan: Wizarmon finds an unconscious [=DORUgamon=], fittingly enough, among trash after he was thrown out of Yggdrasil's room like trash. Despite the Mummymon warning him against this and despite never meeting [=DORUgamon=] before, Wizarmon takes him in to recover and helps him escape when their hideout is jeopardized.
%%* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Omegamon.]]
* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:Alphamon]] performs one in order to defeat [[spoiler:[=Death-X-mon=]]]. This is also how [[spoiler: Omegamon]] gets his X-Antibody.
** [[spoiler: [=MetalGarurumon X=] pulls this off to save Tokomon; giving him his X-Antibody.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Magnamon states that Yggdrasil created Dorumon for experimentation purposes. [[spoiler: Guess who ends up screwing Yggdrasil's plans over?]]
* KilledOffForReal: Anyone infected with the X-Program who doesn't develop an X-Antibody and accordingly evolve to their X variant. Also, Leomon. [[RunningGag Again]].
* KudzuPlot: Can get pretty confusing due to a lot of things never being fully explained, if at all.
* LaResistance: Led by Wargreymon X and Metalgarurumon X.
* LightIsNotGood: The Royal Knights are light themed antagonists (with Dukemon being an exeption [[spoiler:and later Omegamon]]).
* MacrossMissileMassacre: Metalgarurumon X as his namesake would imply. Specifically his Garuru Burst attack.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Omegamon is devoted to Yggdrasil and thus carries out its orders, despite feeling heavily conflicted on some of his actions.
* NoFlowInCGI: Though they did give Omegamon and Dukemon their signature {{badass cape}}s, they're awkwardly animated to a fairly visible extent. Similarly, [=DORUmon=]'s fur.
* OneManArmy:
** Omegamon wiping out literally hundreds of Triceramon.
** Also Wargreymon X, [[spoiler: Dukemon X, and Metalgarurumon X]] all manage to take down dozens of [=Death-X-DoruGreymon=] by themselves.
* ThePlague: The X-Program, designed to delete 99% of all Digimon in the Digital World.
* RageAgainstTheReflection: [=DORUmon=] has a little of this [[spoiler: after he's evolved to [=DORUGreymon=]; shockingly similar, [[CloningBlues and with good reason]], to the [=Death-X-DORUGreymon=] attacking the rebel Digimon.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: Wargreymon X is much more aggressive towards the Royal Knights and is more willing to fight them. Metalgarurumon X on the other hand still isn't sure that the Royal Knights are really their enemies, and is usually more calm.
* RedShirtArmy: The Tyranomon and Triceramon X that Omegamon [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill annihilates]], and the Mushmon during the battle with the [=Death-X-DORUGreymon=].
* ResetButton: [[spoiler:Yggdrasil's]] plans involve hitting the entire Digital World's reset button.[[spoiler: Omegamon X ultimately hits the button himself during his final assault on Yggdrasil.]]
* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: The Andromon who ratted out the gathering of Digimon to the Royal Knights is killed by Omnimon.
* RunningGag: ''X-Evolution'' sets an internal record for [[TheyKilledKenny the fastest Leomon death]] in any ''Digimon'' continuity - it offs a Leomon in ''the first three minutes''. This one doesn't even get physically hurt to cause the death.
* SacrificialLamb: Leomon dies, [[ForegoneConclusion again]]. His death in the very first scene makes him a Lamb instead of his usual Sacrificial Lion.
* SendInTheClones: Yggdrasil's army of [[spoiler: [=Death-X-DORUGreymons=]]].
* ShoutOut: Well, some are pretty obvious, others not so much, and there are plenty of [[MythologyGag internal Digimon ones]].
** That the two rebel leaders happen to be [[Anime/DigimonAdventure the two Digimon who traditionally comprise Omegamon]] can't be a coincidence.
** Any Digimon who previously appeared in the anime had their original voice actor.
** Wargreymon X's Poseidon Force looks suspiciously similar to the [[Franchise/DragonBall Spirit Bomb]].
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler: The only way Alphamon was able to defeat Death-X-mon/Dexmon]]
* ThanatosGambit: [[spoiler: Dukemon, which fought Omegamon and purposely allows himself to be killed. This achieves three goals: Making Omegamon doubt his master openly for the first time, covertly investigate Yggdrasil actions and get himself an upgrade (the X-antibody) in order to be revived.]] "There's something I wanted to check" indeed, since its gambit was so awesome it included coming back from the dead in a way which wasn't predicted by the overseers of the Digital World (Yggdrasil and the Royal Knights).
* ThirdPersonPerson: I, Dukemon, spoke like this. Just like he did in the original ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', making it a ShoutOut, too.
* TookALevelInBadass: Literally. Compare and contrast Dorumon: Child Level and TheWoobie -- and his evolution, Alphamon: Ultimate Level and badass.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Magnamon. All he wants to do is her/his job; unfortunately, that means siding with [[spoiler:Yggdrasil]] in destroying/resetting the world. Same could go for Omegamon, since he believes that Digimon with an X-Antibody are corrupted monsters bent on destroying everything ([[AlternateCharacterInterpretation may]][[JustFollowingOrders be]]). Guess who destroys the most: [[spoiler:Omegamon in his final action in the movie, hitting the ResetButton with his All Delete attack and accordingly wiping out everyone still alive, himself included...]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Metalgarurumon X to Omegamon upon seeing his handiwork with [=DORUmon=] and Tokomon.
--> '''Metalgarurumon X''': Is this the justice of the Royal Knights?!
* TheWorfEffect:
** It appears to be set up twice for Alphamon but it [[SubvertedTrope turns out]] his greater success in battle compared to the established Digimon may not have anything to do with his strength, nor that of the enemy's.
** Omegamon gets hit by this hard towards the end, mainly to show off how [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter badass Alphamon is.]] But again, it is possible that this is a SubvertedTrope as well for the same reason as the above.
* YouShallNotPass: [[spoiler: [=MetalGarurumon X=]]] holds the line against the army of [=Death-X-DORUGreymons=] after his return.
