Main Cast

    In general 
  • Changing of the Guard: The series makes a point to contrast the new digidestined on the field from the old who now mostly act as mentors, and highlights TK and Kari's maturation from TagalongKids on the original team to core members of the current group.
  • Chromatic Arrangement: The new members introduced, Davis, Yolei, and Cody are Blue, Red and Yellow respectively by the color of their Digivices and Digimon. though Ken's digivice is black, Wormmon various evolutions are green and typically have green auras in evolution animations.
  • Color-Coded Characters
    • Davis - Blue
    • Yolei - Red
    • Cody - Yellow
    • TK - Green
    • Kari - Pink
    • Ken - Black
  • Composite Character: The three children are mostly this, which is reflected in their Digi-eggs. Davis has traits of both Tai and Matt (Courage and Friendship), Yolei shows a mixture of Sora, Mimi, (Love and Sincerity) and a good bit of Izzy (she's a tech geek), and Cody is a mix of Izzy and Joe (Knowledge and Reliability). Two of them still manage to be their own characters.
  • Land, Sea, Sky - The 'transport' forms of the new trio. Davis' Raidramon for land, Yolei's Holsemon for Sky, and Cody's Submarimon for Sea.
  • Recurring Element: Related to Composite Character above, each of the new Digidestined matches roughly the appearance and role of someone on the old team, essentially creating two matching teams of 6.
    • Davis looks up to Tai and is the closest to a direct Expy as the new gogglehead
    • Yolei to Mimi who she looks up to as a mentor and big sister. Both seem sweet but are blunt about their feelings.
    • Cody to Izzy being the youngest and smallest, yet the most practical and intelligent, often the voice of reason. Both find foils in their Digimon who are both more simpleminded and easy going.
    • TK as Matt's younger brother, and a blond haired Lancer to Davis at the beginning.
    • Kari to Sora based on their relationships with TK/Matt, and their generally supportive role on the team.
    • Ken to Joe is mostly a case of Pair the Spares but they both have straight blue hair, try to shoulder the responsibility for the team or their actions on their own out of a need to prove themselves, and both suffered from some degree of inferiority complex compared to their older siblings. They also have foils in their Digimon who are much more open-minded and sometimes critical of their partners.
  • Three Plus Two: The trio that joined up at the same time Davis, Yolei, and Cody have more in common with each other (Land, Sea, Sky / Chromatic Arrangement / Composite Character above) than TK and Kari who have an affinity for each other being a Tagalong Kid duo on the original team and the various angel motifs surrounding them.
  • The Team - most play two roles

    Daisuke Motomiya 

Davis Motomiya (Daisuke Motomiya)

"We can't stop now, we'll never get a chance like this again!"

Davis is the designated leader of the new Digidestined/Chosen Children; brash, cheerful, and energetic. He's also Tai's Expy, to the point of wearing the former's trademark goggles. Although he's very much an underdog at first, he's about the only cast member who doesn't have mild-to-serious psychological issues. This emotional stability ends up being his greatest asset. He has a hopeless crush on Kari, but gradually idolizes her less as time goes on.

In the conclusion of 02, he becomes a noodle cart owner.

Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi (JP), Brian Donovan (EN)

  • All Love Is Unrequited: Has a huge crush on Hikari, but she never responds. Kinda disappears by the time Ken joins.
  • All-Loving Hero: Even more notable in that, as this DeviantArt points out, of all the animated goggle boys (up to Savers, at least), Daisuke is the only lead Tamer who managed to go a whole season without evolving his Digimon partner via dark emotions until Taiki, four seasons later.
  • Annoying Older Sibling: Played with. Jun and Daisuke both care about each other, but continually get on each other's nerves. This is partly because they're a lot alike.
  • Badass Normal: He does toss away a Gokimon that attacks him.
  • Big Eater: Par for the leaders, although V-mon eats even more.
  • Big "NEVER!": When he tackles Ken in the digital world.
  • Butt Monkey
  • Crossdressing Voices: Japanese and Chinese version only.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead
  • Defeat Means Friendship
  • Determinator: Even though even he realizes how futile it is to fight BelialVamdemon, he and ExVeemon are determined to fight until the last anyway. Take note that while they were at it, the other Chosen Children were paralyzed by fear and caught in BelialVamdemon's Lotus-Eater Machine, which Daisuke resisted through sheer determination and desire to end BelialVamdemon.
  • Dragon Rider: Raidramon can't fly, but ExVeemon, Paildramon, and Imperialdramon all can. Raidramon makes up for it by being lightning quick.
  • Expy: Of Taichi.
  • Fearless Fool: Rather than courageous Daisuke is more fearless as he doesn't ever show any fear, despite being a Na´veNewcomer and put in situations where Fear Is the Appropriate Response, like Taichi, unlike Taichi though he never grows out of it.
  • Flat Character: Although somehow it manages to be put in a somewhat positive light.
  • Foil: His lack of development was meant to be a Foil to Ken's Character Development.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: To Ken.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Had them even before Taichi gave him his own!
  • Hey, You!: In Japanese he refers to Takeru as "omae" (a rather rough and informal word for "you") due to jealousy of his relationship with Hikari; in the dub, this is rendered through Davis constantly messing up the initials of TK's name.
  • Hidden Depths: Averted according to Word of God.
  • Hopeless Suitor: This trope was once called The Daisuke.
  • Humble Goal: Run a noodle cart business.
  • Idiot Hero: Perhaps one of the biggest ones in the franchise sans Tagiru. Unlike Taichi, he doesn't really grow out of this, but admittedly it pays off in the end.
  • Hotblooded: Until Masaru came along, he was easily the most so of any Digimon protagonist.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: He's got 'em.
  • Hot Paint Job: His Digiworld jacket, pictured above. He and Flamedramon match.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Ore
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • Keet
  • Kneel Before Zod
  • The Leader: Ostensibly, being the gogglehead. Mostly Headstrong type with enough force of personality to qualify for Charismatic, Daisuke unfortunately is unable to overcome being the Butt Monkey and his enforced Idiot Hero status, and remains something akin to The Face of the group.
  • Lovable Jock
  • Loves Me Not
  • Malicious Misnaming: In the dub, Davis had a habit of calling TK everything but TK, from TV, TI, etc. The dialogue editors for the dub were bold enough to use the whole alphabet in doing this.
  • Na´ve Newcomer
  • The Power of Friendship
  • Rebel Leader: They're fighting an empire, after all.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Takeru, then later Ken's blue.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: One has to wonder why the hell he is given leadership position over T.K.
  • Personality Powers
  • Screw Learning, I Have Phlebotinum!: The Crest of Kindness and subsequently the Digimental of Miracles that allowed Davis to "see Ken's true heart", well before the other children learn to trust Ken.
  • Shirtless Scene: Hurricane Touchdown
  • Special Guest: Is a featured character during one of V-Tamer's specials: Double Tamer. As V-Tamer wasn't forced to keep Daisuke as the Idiot Hero, he was actually done a favor and given some much appreciated character development. Given V-mon's evolution capabilities and the team being only five members, the Special takes place between the fall of the Kaiser and Ken becoming Sixth Ranger.
    • Hidden Depths: Daisuke isn't as motivated to go return to his own world because he thinks that nobody cares enough about him to miss him.
    • Heroic BSOD: When he sees the list of his team's names among the tamers Parallelmon absorbed. Quickly turns into a Roaring Rampage of Revenge, though it doesn't work as well as he would have hoped without a plan.
    • Smart Ball: Catches it smack in the face by coming up with a plan to take down Parallelmon. The plan itself involves baiting the monster into trying to absorb Flamedramon and having V-mon revert so Parallelmon absorbs the armor instead, which sets it up to have its head cut off by an incoming Zeromaru. Parallelmon is lucky enough to survive just for Magnamon to annihilate it utterly.
      • V-mon lampshades this during the group's goodbyes by saying Davis coming up with the plan was the true Miracle, which earns him a bump on the head for good measure.
    • And the Adventure Continues: Both Daisuke and Taichi return to their own quests at the end.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Justified at first; however, it become more obvious when the other Chosen Children gain access to Ultimate/Perfect-level Digimon.
  • Static Character: According to Word of God, Daisuke was made this way in order to be a foil of Ken, and the writers were barred from developing his character and so kept him out of situations that would force his development. Averted in the Digimon V-Tamer 01 manga.
  • Shonen Hair: Much tamer than Taichi's though.
  • Triang Relations: Type 3 or 4 (debatable)
  • You Are Not Alone: Leads to a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.

    Miyako Inoue 

Yolei Inoue (Miyako Inoue)

"Bingo!"

Yolei is a curious and hyper girl who seems to thoroughly enjoy exploring the Digital World, and has a knack for being technologically savvy. Has two big sisters and a big brother that she feels hog the spotlight (wait, that sounds familiar). Notably, she is the only known Chosen Child in this series to have a Digimon of the opposite gender.

In the conclusion of 02, she marries Ken and becomes a house wife.

Voiced by: Rio Natsuki (JP), Tifanie Christun (EN)

  • Action Girl: As much as anybody in Adventure ever is. Fear her skateboard attack! Well...actually, don't, but she gets points for trying.
  • Adventurer Outfit: Airmen type.
  • The Big Girl
  • Big "Shut Up!" —> "The Reason You Suck" Speech: In episode 17, Digitamamon spends the entire episode acting like a jerk. She lets him have it, earning her second digiegg in the process.
  • Catch Phrase: "Bingo!" in Japanese, "Perfecto!" in the dub.
    • She also has "Chosen Children, let's roll!" in the original Japanese version for whenever they're about to enter the Digital World. Notably, when in one episode Yolei is too depressed to go into the Digital World to fight, Kari has to supply the phrase.
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Composite Character/ Expy: While she and her Digimon's abilities have most in common with Sora and Mimi, Yolei's personality and back story actually makes her much like Joe and Izzy, as she also manages to fill in their positions on the team.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Despite not inheriting his crest as a Digiegg Yolei takes on Joe's role as the oldest member and the one most likely to panic.
  • Ditzy Genius Bruiser
  • Don't Say Such Stupid Things: She's the one who gives these speeches to Ken and Hikari.
  • Dub Name Change: Her name was "Miyako" in the original version, but in the dub, her name was changed to "Yolei." Terri Lei O'Malley said that they were going to keep her name as "Kyo" (an alternate way of reading the kanji for "Miyako"), but it was difficult for the voice team to pronounce, so they took the "Yo" out of her name and combined it with the "Lei" from O'Malley's name to form "Yolei." However, her name was also translated as "Keely" on some of Bandai's products.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Makes a brief appearance in Our War Game.
  • Genki Girl
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: To Hikari and Ken on separate occasions.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: The series and the merchandising can't seem to agree whether her hair is pink or purple.
  • House Wife: In the Distant Finale. She and Ken share the most children.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Atashi
  • Meaningful Name: One of her first lines when introducing herself is that the kanji in her name is also the "Kyo" in "Kyoto." Foreshadowing for the field trip she takes during the BlackWarGreymon arc?
  • Meganekko
  • Official Couple: With Ken in the 02 epilogue.
  • The Power of Love
  • Punny Name: Related to the above: the Japanese name for the episode in which Miyako visits Kyoto is Kyō no Miyako wa Kyō no Miyako, translated on That Other Wiki as "Today Miyako is in Kyoto."
  • Reluctant Warrior: Her refusal to kill LadyDevimon in "Dark Sun, Dark Spore" is major hate bait.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: She and Hikari have two or three whiffs of the trope, specially in the episode that had them (and Ken) in the Sea of Darkness. (Between this and her attitude with Mimi, she's very easy fodder for Les Yay.)
  • Smarter Than You Look: For a Ditzy Genius, she is The Smart Guy of the group and figured out how the Spires worked before anyone else.
  • The Smart Girl
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Hikari's Girly Girl (even though she isn't particularly tomboyish herself).
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Has an Image Song about how she, deep down, wants to at least partially embody the archetype. She kinda gets her wish in the Grand Finale by becoming a House Wife for Ken.

    Iori Hida 

Cody Hida (Iori Hida)

Iori is the youngest and most reserved of the new team, rather quiet and standoffish compared to the others. He seems to practice a zen-like religion, keeping him fairly stoic throughout. He is also a kendoist, and relies on his wise, yet quirky, grandfather for advice.

In the conclusion of 02, he becomes a defense attorney.

Voiced by: Megumi Urawa (JP), Philece Sampler (EN)

    Takeru "TK" Takaishi 

Takeru "TK" Takaishi

Having grown up a little, Takeru serves as the warm, friendly Lancer of the new Chosen team. Nonetheless, he is a bit more cynical and a bit shellshocked from his previous adventures. Together, he and Hikari often explain how the Digital World works to the new kids.

In the conclusion of 02, he becomes an author. He was also Narrator All Along for the 02 series.

Voiced by: Taisuke Yamamoto (JP), Doug Erholtz (EN)

  • Advertised Extra: He's part of the core team this time, rather than being the Tagalong Kid, but probably receives the least amount of development. Even his would be character development for Jogress Evolution is far more about Iori than both of them. The writers seemed at least interested in making him the Yamato to Daisuke's Taichi before giving that role to Ken demoting Takeru even further to background player.
  • Always Someone Better: Was that way to Daisuke in the beginning.
  • Berserk Button: "THE POWERS OF DARKNESS!" in the English some other dubs.
    • Those who foolishly believe that they can control darkness, and those who ruin the lives of others in the Japanese version and other dubs.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Good-natured and kind at first glance, mention The Dark Side and he does a 180. Expect a This Is Unforgivable or two. Physically.
  • Expy: In theory he becomes an expy to his own brother being The Lancer to The Hero who he constantly butts heads with and has his own personal issues. The Hero and The Lancer at odds dynamics is dropped after about 11 episodes in and Takeru's personal issues aren't really developed much.
    • Took a Level in Badass: Compare his characterization in 02 with his characterization in Adventure. And even back then, the kid tried hard to do things on his own. Which made Yamato almost flip.
    • Tranquil Fury
  • Blood Upgrade: Provides the page image.
  • But Not Too Foreign: Revealed to be part French during the World Tour
  • Creator Breakdown: Alluded to In-Universe, in the 2003 audio drama. While he started writing his book about his adventures in the digital world less than a year after 02, the narration notes that it was a long time before he could bring himself to write about what happened to Angemon.
  • Creepy Child: When his Berserk Button is activated.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Chinese and Indonesian dub version only. In these versions, he is voiced by a female.
  • Darker and Edgier
  • Dead Sidekick
  • Deadpan Snarker: He can pull out some good one-liners from time to time.
  • Depending on the Writer: Is he resentful of those who try to toy with the darkness without knowing what it entails (episode 19), those who try to take over the world or do other evil deeds with the power of darkness (episode 34), or those who create artificial life with the power of darkness (episode 35)? Is he out to destroy anything that's made with the power of darkness (episode 34) or does he believe that all life is precious and important (episode 35)? The only thing anyone can agree on is that Angemon's death in Adventure did a number on him.
  • Good Is Not Nice: He is normally friendly and soft-spoken. Towards an enemy that's pissed him off, however, he can be quite violent and unforgiving.
  • He Is All Grown Up
  • Holy Hand Grenade
  • I Should Write a Book About This: In the Distant Finale, Takeru became a novelist and wrote about their adventures.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Boku
  • The Lancer: For about the first half of the series. Demoted later.
  • Narrator All Along: Turns out he was this for the series, as an author. The English dub ruins this by not having a single narrator.
  • New Transfer Student: He moves to the school Hikari and most of the new Chosen go to in episode 1.
  • Nice Hat: His nearly ever-present fisherman-style hat.
  • Not Himself: When his Berserk Button is pressed.
  • Older and Wiser
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Daisuke' red until Ken joins.
  • Tareme Eyes

    Hikari Yagami 

Kari Kamiya (Hikari Yagami)

Even though she has grown up, Hikari remains sweet and gentle, having tempered her innocence with wisdom. However, she still has issues that come back to haunt her, usually when she least expects it.

In the conclusion of 02, she becomes a kindergarten teacher.

Voiced by: Kae Araki (JP), Lara Jill Miller (EN)

  • Action Girl: Less so than Miyako, but still one when it counts.
  • Berserk Button / Beware the Nice Ones: As Davis found out early on, do not talk ill about your brothers and sisters when Kari is around. This sweetheart of a girl will verbally tear you a new one.
  • Betty and Veronica: With TK as The Betty and Davis as The Veronica. Kari ends up choosing neither.
  • Big Brother Worship: She isn't as reliant on him as she was in Adventure, but she still thinks of him very highly and measures her own worth relative to his. She is also very critical towards Davis when he badmouths Jun.
  • Blessed with Suck: As mentioned below, bearing the Crest of Light is very taxing.
  • The Chick
  • Declaration of Protection: How Takeru feels concerning her. However, it should be noted that she is capable of taking care of herself... most of the time.
  • Expy: She takes Sora's Team Mom role, also Tai's crush on Sora in the first series is not dissimilar to Davis's crush on Kari, although Davis is a lot more open about it.
    • Miyako kinda takes up that role later on though.
  • Distaff Counterpart: To Takeru
    • Including their Digimon, that come as a pair of angels.
  • Hair Decorations
  • Fingerless Gloves: Pink ones that go halfway up her bicep.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: To Miyako, even she's shocked at how uncharacteristic this is for her.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: That is a digital camera around her neck. She uses it precisely once, in the third or fourth episode. Notably, her summer and winter outfits ditch it entirely, but the Digital World always reproduces it when changing her clothes to her spring/fall wear.
  • Gotta Get Your Head Together: She spends a good chunk of her Dark Ocean panic attack in this position.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Light and/or holy powers. In the english dub, she is referred to as "the worst enemy of darkness".
  • Holy Child: The people after her aren't necessarily all that interested in killing her, this time around, mind you. It's played for drama on several occasions since it makes her sensitive to the powers of darkness and has more than one Heroic BSOD that Takeru and Miyako have to pull her out from.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Atashi
  • Light is Good
  • Meaningful Name
  • Mysterious Waif: She's borderline telepathic, and soon it backfires on her.

     Ken Ichijouji 

Ken Ichijouji (post-Digimon Emperor/Kaiser)

"I know I can never be forgiven for what I've done...I'll atone for my own sins."

Ken after realizing the Digital World isn't a video game, and having to face up to all the evil stuff he's done. Ridden with guilt and sorrow, he works hard to try and clean up his act, but perhaps will never completely get over it. Thankfully, Daisuke and Wormmon seem pretty determined to help him reform.

In the conclusion of 02, he marries Miyako and becomes a detective (a police officer in the original Japanese version).

Voiced By: Romi Paku (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

  • Academic Athlete: A function of the Dark Spore.
  • Adorkable: Displays traits of this once he joins the team as a contrast to his former Kaiser persona; he's incredibly awkward and somewhat socially inept, but it only makes him come off as more of a nice guy.
  • The Atoner: He's got a latent death wish and keeps feeling guilty even after sealing Daemon in the Dark Ocean.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: As a child Ken, jealous of his older brother and angry that he always got special attention because he was a Child Prodigy, wished for Osamu to disappear. He got a hit by a car shortly afterward. This set the stage for all of the events to follow.
  • Big Brother Bully: Osamu. He found Ken playing with the Digivice that he thought was his, and exploded at him. Much of it was Osamu snapping under pressure to succeed. On the whole, though, Osamu was a good big brother.
    • The lighting of that scene (combined with the fact that he was returning from the Digital World after having just been infected by the Dark Spore) might imply that Ken's perspective of what was going on (or his recollection of it) were a bit skewed.
  • Break the Haughty: That's what causes his Heel-Face Turn, actually.
  • Broken Ace: Type II.
  • Chick Magnet: Female Muggles are all over him.
    • Hilariously lampshaded in the Michi e no Armour Shinka drama, where Ken is signing autographs and Wormmon is telling his fans to stand file in a single line. Yes, the whole thing is crack.
      • Even funnier is when Daisuke tries to imitate his Emperor persona in order to get more fans, but they all boo at him, saying Ken is cooler. And then after the kids solve a conflict, the girls there thank him...only to go back to fangirling Ken right after.
  • Child Prodigy
  • Dead Person Conversation
  • Dead Sidekick: Wormmon. Although he gets better shortly.
  • Death Seeker: His dream in the Lotus-Eater Machine? Watching himself get beaten to death, as the Kaiser, by the Digimon he's hurt. The poor kid's only eleven.
    • It comes out as early as episode 26, in which Ken is completely ready to blow up the Kaiser's base and himself along with it. (Stingmon shares the self-sacrificial sentiment in the episode, blaming himself for being unable to stop Ken as the Kaiser.) Daisuke snaps him out of it for the time being, but given what he sees in the Lotus-Eater Machine, it doesn't go completely away even up until then.
    • Out, Damned Spot!
  • Dreaming of Times Gone By: Ken dreams about when he got the Dark Spore. He's forgotten the surrounding events, so he has to ask Wormmon about them.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending
  • Easy Amnesia: Dub-only; right after his self-induced coma, he has trouble recognizing who his parents (and the picture of his deceased brother) are, and has some trouble remembering about the Digital World and Wormmon until he gets some mental prompting. It only lasts one episode. (The original just had him rather emotionally detached from his memories, but clearly there.)
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: As the Digimon Kaizer, his hair is two-toned and spiked, nearly identical to his dead, genius brother's. After his Face-Heel Turn, his hair is more bluish, chin-length, and straight.
  • Freak Out: As a product of his Break the Haughty.
  • Future Badass: In the Distant Finale he's become a Badass Longcoat detective (or a police officer in the Japanese version), fighting crime with Wormmon.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: On the receiving edge of two, courtesy of Miyako and Daisuke.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Ken was the first major enemy in the series; after suffering a Villainous Breakdown following Wormmon's death, he slowly recovers from the hold the Dark Spore had over him.
  • Heel Realization
  • Heroic BSOD
  • Hidden Depths: According to the episode in which he visits Mexico to gather the lost Digimon, he can speak and understand a decent amount of Spanish. One wonders if he really doesn't have some traces of genius after all.
  • Ineffectual Loner: Downplayed in that he is successful in knocking down Dark Towers with Stingmon after being reformed, but is far more effectual once he becomes part of the True Companions.
  • I Wished You Were Dead: His brother, Osamu/Sam.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Boku
  • The Lancer: Replaces Takeru once he joins the team. After he paired up with Davis as DNA partners the series have never looked back. Just look at most pictures of the team or of the Lancers of the Digimon franchise, official or otherwise.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Strongly implied to be the case with his memories of the Tag Tamer games. When the memories begin to surface as dreams, SkullSatamon remarks that he's "starting to remember".
  • Meaningful Name: The kanji used for Ken's name means "intelligence" or "genius", reflecting both his brief stint as a genius under the Kaiser/Emperor persona and the resulting expectations that were placed on him.
  • More Than Mind Control: The Dark Spore influenced him but didn't control him.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Twice.
  • Nice Guy: Ken post Heel-Face Turn and as The Atoner. Fitting, considering he's the Chosen of the Crest Of Kindness
  • Official Couple: With Miyako/Yolei in the 02 epilogue.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Daisuke's red, replacing Takeru once he joins the team.
  • Shy Blue Haired Guy
  • Sixth Ranger
  • School Uniforms are the New Black: He wears his gray Tamachi school uniform in both worlds. He even wears it under his Digimon Kaizer outfit, which may or may not reflect his priorities and the expectations placed upon him.
  • Start of Darkness: When he read Oikawa's email.
  • Tsurime Eyes
  • The Unfavorite: As a child, the butt of this trope before his brother's death.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid
  • What Beautiful Eyes:
  • When He Smiles
  • With My Hands Tied
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Is really evil but still Ken.

Main Digimon

    Veemon 

Veemon

Davis's partner, a blue dragon-ish wisecracker who quickly becomes best buds with his partner. Before the events of 02, he was actually the partner of Ryo, though it's never mentioned in the show itself.

  • Mega:
    • DNA/Natural: Imperialdramon Dragon Mode, an Ancient Dragon Digimon with black armor dragon with red wings. In several video games adaptations which share the same universe as the anime (or crossover like in Digimon Digital Card Battle) where Wormmon has his own Mega form (GranKuwagamon), Imperialdramon Dragon Mode is Veemon's natural Mega form.
    • DNA:
      • Imperialdramon Fighter Mode, a humanoid version of Imperialdramon.
      • Imperialdramon Paladin Mode, basically an all-white Fighter Mode with a BFS.

    Hawkmon 

Hawkmon

Yolei's partner, a gentlemanly hawk-like Digimon who is about the only known case of a Digimon partner the opposite gender of their Digidestined. A little more down-to-earth than Yolei, but that doesn't stop him showing off.

His digivolutions are as follows:
  • Fresh: Pururumon, a pink blob with a beak.
  • In-Training: Poromon, a tiny pink ball with wings and a feather. Blows bubbles.

  • Champion: Aquilamon, a big red eagle with horns.
  • Ultimate (DNA/Natural): Silphymon, a white & red warrior with Hawkmon's feathers, Gatomon's ears, and a metal visor. In several video games adaptations which share the same universe as the anime (or crossover like in Digimon Digital Card Battle), this is his natural Ultimate form.
  • Mega: Valkyrimon, an eagle-themed warrior only seen in the Wonder Swan games.

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: A belt around his head, which secures his extra feather.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Silphymon is named for female mythical creature of the air. For bonus points, each of these forms relates in some way to Kari and Gatomon (Valkyrimon is Sylphimon's digivolution, and Harpymon is Hawkmon's Armor Digivolution via the Digi-Egg of Light).
    • Gender-Blender Name: In several video games adaptation where Silphymon is his natural Ultimate form, and also where he has Mega form, Valkyrimon, he has nothing to do with Hikari and Tailmon, though. So, Silphymon and Valkyrimon are just males with feminine names.
  • Big Badass Bird of Prey: His further evolutions, particularly Aquilamon.
  • Bishonen Line: Silphymon and Valkyrimon
  • Cool Sword: Valkyrimon's Fenrir Sword.
  • Elemental Powers
  • Fanservice: Silphymon. It's uncertain whether it's a guy or not, but that doesn't stop the fangirls.
    • Mr. Fanservice: Outside of this anime, Silphymon is male. Evidently, in the movie Digimon X-Evolution, Silphymon only talks with Aquilamon's voice and lack of Tailmon's voice. Also, Valkyrimon qualifies for this trope because he has nothing to do with Tailmon.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: As Rinkmon.
  • Meaningful Name: "Aquila" is Latin for eagle.
  • Ninja: Shurimon is dressed as one and uses typical ninja weapons (shuriken) and abilities ( multiplication).
  • One Of These Is Not Like The Others: Is the only Digimon in the franchise who is the opposite gender of the partner.
  • Polly Wants a Microphone
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: In the dub. He is more of a samurai in the Japanese.
  • Spell My Name with an S: "Halsemon" is an attempted Anglicization of "Holsmon", where "Hols" is an attempted Anglicization of "Horusmon."note 
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Rinkmon wears this.
  • Winged Humanoid: Valkyrimon. As a bonus, he looks more human than Silphymon who still looks like a bird man.

    Armadimon 

Armadillomon (Armadimon)

Cody's partner, a burrowing Digimon with a southern accent in the dub. He has a very grounded, folksy personality to contrast Cody's calmness.

  • Fresh: Tsubumon, a yellow ball with a feather.
  • In-Training: Upamon, a tiny yellow ball with "gills" on the sides of his head. Blows bubbles.
  • Rookie: Armadillomon, his default form.

    • Knowledge: Digmon, a big yellow beetle that shoots drills.
    • Reliability: Submarimon, a submarine with a chainsaw nose.
    • Love: Pteramon, an armored pterosaur who can fires missile from his wings. Only appears in CD Drama Armor Evolution to the Unknown.
  • Champion: Ankylomon, an ankylosaurus.
  • Ultimate (DNA/Natural): Shakkoumon, a white and gold angel/clay doll combination. In several video games adaptations which share the same universe as the anime (or crossover like in Digimon Digital Card Battle), this is his natural Ultimate form.
  • Mega: Vikemon, a viking walrus-like creature only seen in the Wonder Swan games.

    Wormmon 

Wormmon

First seen as the Digimon Emperor's minion, a caterpillar-like Digimon who eventually rebels to help the Digidestined defeat him. Doesn't do too much after Ken's Heel-Face Turn, but evolves into Stingmon and is awesome.

  • Fresh: Leafmon, a green blob with a leaf.
  • In-Training: Minomon, Wormmon's head attached to a pinecone. Blows bubbles.
  • Rookie: Wormmon, his default form.
  • Armors:
    • Kindness: Pucchiemon, a small white pixie with red gloves, boots and headgear, only seen in the Wonder Swan games.
    • Courage: Shadramon, a red-armored insectoid warrior who can uses fire-based attacks. Only appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle.
    • Light: Quetzalmon, an armored Quetzalcoatl who can uses various wind and ice-based attacks. Only appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle. And yes, despite digivolved and armored with Digi-Egg of Light, his powers are all based on wind and ice!
  • Champion: Stingmon. A green insectoid warrior.
  • Ultimate:
    • DNA Digivolve: Paildramon, essentially ExVeemon with Stingmon's armor with hip-mounted machine guns.
    • Natural: Dinobeemon, essentially Stingmon with an animalistic posture and some of ExVeemon's body parts, only seen in the Wonder Swan games.
  • Mega:
    • DNA Digivolve:

    Patamon 

Patamon

He's back with TK and has probably changed less than his partner has, which causes a bit of angst. Rarely if ever becomes Angemon. Also check out the Digimon Adventure Character page for more details.

His new Digivolutions this season are:
  • Armor:
    • Hope: Pegasusmon (Pegasmon), a golden-armored winged horse.
    • Light: Manbomon, a white-armored golden sunfish who wears Red Boxing Gloves. Again, despite digivolved from Digi-Egg of Light, his attacks in this form are based on water! Only appears in CD Drama Armor Evolution to the Unknown.
    • Courage: Baromon, a Demon Man Digimon, who can summons meteor with his Meteor Dance. Only appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle.
  • Ultimate (DNA): Shakkoumon, a white and gold angel/clay doll combination.
  • Mega: Seraphimon, a blue armored angel with ten wings, seen in the Golden Digimentals movie (part 3 of Digimon: The Movie), which is of questionable canonicity.

Voiced by: Miwa Matsumoto (JP), Laura Summer (EN)

The second seasons adds these tropes to Patamon's character:

    Tailmon 

Gatomon (Tailmon'')

Back and a little more friendly now, although she's had a power downgrade after losing her tail-ring. Without it, she's only as powerful as a rookie. Check out the Digimon Adventure Character page for more details.

Her new Digivolutions this season are:
  • Armor:
    • Light: Nefertimon, a flying cat with Egyptian-themed armor.
    • Reliability: Tylomon, a blue-armored Sea Dragon Digimon, vaguely resembles shark, who can uses water-based attacks and homing torpedo. Only appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle.

  • Ultimate (DNA): Silphymon, a white & red warrior with Hawkmon's feathers, Gatomon's ears, and a metal visor.
  • Mega: Magnadramon (Holydramon), a giant pink cat/angel/dragon, seen in the Golden Digimentals movie (part 3 of Digimon: The Movie), which is of questionable canonicity. Also appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle.

Voiced by: Yuka Tokumitsu (JP), Edie Mirman (EN)

The second seasons adds these tropes to Gatomon's character:
  • Ambiguous Gender: As Silphymon
  • Ancient Egypt: Nefertimon's motif. Her armor invokes this period, and her form based on The Sphinx.
  • Bag of Spilling: Loses her tail/holy ring in the first episode, which leads to her being a Champion digimon with the power of a Rookie.
  • Cat Fight: Angewomon vs. Lady Devimon, round 2!
  • Chainmail Bikini: Nefertimon's armor - consisting of gauntlets, a full headed helmet, a breastplate, and pauldrons that would make Space Marines proud. This time the breastplate, while shapely, does fully covers her abdomen. However, her lower half of her body is lacking any armor at all.
  • Combination Attack: As Nefertimon, has one with Pegasusmon, Golden Noose (Sanctuary Bind), which creates a thread of golden light to tie things up with.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In one dub episode, Gatomon goes into a random tirade about TV antennas, asking why they're called rabbit ears and not cat ears. Kari looks at her incredulously, asking "This is what you think of?!"
  • Cute Kitten
  • Deadpan Snarker: Indulges in this at times.
  • Elemental Powers:
  • Ms. Fanservice: Once again, Angewomon, and to a lesser extent, Silphymon. Nefertimon may also counts thanks to her Non-Mammal Mammaries.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Nefertimon has a pair of feathery angel wings.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: Magnadramon.
  • Mama Bear: for Hikari, especially as Angewomon in the Dark Ocean episode.
  • Nerf: Losing her ring in the first episode made her as weak as a rookie. If she didn't lose the thing, she likely would not have required the armor evolution as often.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: It's not difficult to notice Nefertimon has (covered) breasts.
  • Olympus Mons: Magnadramon.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Holydramon is a Holy Dragon Digimon and Tylomon is a Sea Dragon Digimon.
  • Pungeon Master: Indulges in cat puns still, but not as often as before.
  • Pretty Butterflies: as Butterflymon.
  • Scaled Up: Magnadramon.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Of the Digimon half of the team.
  • Team Mom: Even more-so than Adventure. Not only being the most mature and experienced, she's also one of the first Main Digimon from last season.
  • Threatening Shark: Tylomon resembles a shark, and she is certainly threatening to her enemies.
  • Throw the ROSETTA STONE At Them: One of Nefertimon's attacks, which she creates the titular giant stone slab and fires it at her foes.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She still knows how to fight as a Gatomon, but lacks the Champion-level power associated with it because she doesn't have her tail ring.

Supporting Cast

    Jun Motomiya 

Jun Motomiya

Jun is Davis's older sister, and they're alike to the hair. She doesn't figure much into the plot, but has a large crush on Matt. After the infamous Christmas episode, she drops her thing for Matt and then locks-on to Joe's second older brother, Shuu.

Voiced by: Kazusa Murai (JP), Peggy O Neal (EN)

  • Ascended Extra: Kari's section of the Where Are They Now CD Drama includes her receiving a partner (along with Shuu, Chizuru, and Momoe). None of the partners are given any description.
  • Anime Hair
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander
  • Determinator: Spends the entirety of the Kimeramon arc following Matt to a campground after he "accidentally" left her behind.
  • Fangirl: First Matt, then Shuu.
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Genki Girl
  • Girl Next Door
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: The hate from Matt/Sora shippers is doubly ridiculous, since she actually gave up on Matt willingly as soon as she saw him with Sora and showed no bad feelings towards them, aside of just moping around a bit like almost any teenage girl would. If Tai was the chosen one, she would likely behave the same way - and maybe even more, considering that Tai is Davis's Big Brother Mentor of sorts.
  • Kiddie Kid: She is 17 years old but acts very childishly sometimes, particularly when it comes to romance.
  • Lamarck Was Right: The anniversary book tells us Jun got her fangirl personality from her mother.
  • Living Lie Detector: Jun knows her way around a few poker tells, which is how she got Matt to go out on a date with her in the first place (by not ratting him out when he came by and lied to her face about her brother coming home late).
    • Obfuscating Stupidity: Don't be fooled. When she's on her game, she knows how to make your day miserable.
  • Official Couple: With Joe's middle brother Shuu. It's All There in the Manual according to the Michi e no Armor Shinka! audio drama, she even goes to meet Shuu's parents before a Valentine's date.
  • Older than They Look: You'd be forgiven for assuming she was the same three years older to Davis as it is with the Kamiya and Ishida/Takaishi siblings. Even with the hair, she's shorter than Matt.
  • Rise of Zitboy: In one episode.
  • Shorttank
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The tomboy to Momoe, the eldest of Yolei's two sisters.

    Wallace 

Willis (Wallace)

Voiced by: Nami Miyahara (JP), Bob Glouberman (EN)

  • The All-American Boy: His physical design has shades of this, especially when he wears his overalls as a child.
  • Character Development
  • Crossdressing Voices: True in Japan, averted in the dub.
  • Dub Name Change: From Wallace to Willis. Mystifyingly, as Wallace is already an English name and he's from America.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Is one of the major opponent tamers in D-1 Tamers, which occurs before the series proper. Chew on that, Continuity.
    • When Hurricane Touchdown was absorbed into Digimon The Movie, Willis ended up absorbing the Info Dump roles of two of Izzyu's foreign friends. He also managed to create the Digimon that became Diaboromon when its egg was infected by a virus.
  • Free-Range Children: The boy hitch-hikes from New York to Colorado, which is how he meets Davis, Yolei, and Cody.
  • Friendless Background: Out of fear that Kokomon would attack anyone too close to him.
  • I Work Alone: In the beginning.
  • Kidanova: He kisses Miyako and Hikari at the end of the movie and mentioned having a Japanese girlfriend. In the drama CD, he slightly flirts with Mimi and is surprised when Natchan is more interested in Daisuke than him.
  • Momma's Boy: He's shown going out of his way to call his mother frequently in the Japanese version.
  • Phenotype Stereotype
  • Ship Tease: With Kari and Yolei. Possibly Davis.
  • Surprisingly Good English: Book Ends the movie with it, though he self-identifies as "Warus".

    Gummymon 

Terriermon

One of Willis's two Digimon and the only one still with him during the events of Hurricane Touchdown. In original Japanese, despite Terriermon is his default form, he is always called as his In-Training form: Gummymon.

His digivolutions are as follows:
  • In-Training: Gummymon, a green squishy blob with one horn.
  • Rookie: Terriermon, his default form. A small canine with Ear Wings.
  • Champion: Galgomon, a humanoid canine with two Arm Cannon Gatling Good attached on both of his hands.
  • Armor:
    • Destiny: Rapidmon (Armor), also known as GoldenRapidmon to distinct him with Digimon Tamers's counterpart. A humanoid canine covered with holy armors and wears two Holy Rings on each of his thighs, who can fires homing missiles.


    Chocomon 

Kokomon (Chocomon)

Willis's other Digimon. This one disappeared under mysterious circumstances and has been stalking Willis in the form of Wendigomon ever since.

His digivolutions are as follows:
  • In-Training: Chocomon, a Palette Swap of Gummymon with browny pink colour and three horns.
  • Rookie: Lopmon, a Palette Swap of Terriermon with brown colour and three horns. Despite being Palette Swap, Lopmon is referred as rabbit, not dog like Terriermon. This form is only seen at the ending of original Japanese.
  • Champion: Endigomon (Wendigomon). The virus who corrupted Chocomon has dark-digivolved him into this bestial giant rabbit man Digimon.
  • Ultimate: Antylamon Virus. The corrupting virus has further dark-digivolved him into a leaner giant rabbit Digimon who is very fast.
  • Mega:
    • Cherubimon Vice: The corrupting virus has even further dark-digivolved him into this bestial Fallen Angel Digimon.
    • Cherubimon Virtue: After he is purified from the virus, Cherubimon is recovered into this angelic beast Digimon, only to Disappears into Light shortly after.


  • Big Bad: For the movie The Golden Digimentals. Though unwillingly due to he is corrupted by an unknown virus.
  • Big "NO!": Gives one in the original version when he realizes how different things in the present are from how he remembers them.
  • Body Horror: Oh, God, yes. Wendigomon unleashes laser cannons from its torso flesh, but its Cherubimon that takes the cake with his rotting ears, rotting frill, and flesh that tears like paper (not mentioning, of course, that he bleeds black snow). The sheer wrongness of how Cherubimon works is as much of a threat as Cherubimon itself.
  • Born-Again Immortality: Despite all that happened to Kokomon as a result of The Corruption, Willis still finds his egg in the end.
  • Chest Blaster: His Koko Crusher attack involves sprouting several small cannons from his chest.
  • Creepily Long Arms: All of his forms that aren't shown in flashbacks.
  • Death Seeker: In the dub, though he was only able to hint at it by saying "destroy" repeatedly.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crosses it when Willis tells him that all of his good memories of them together are in the past. He draws on the power of whatever caused him to disappear years ago in order to digivolve. This gives it full control of his body.
  • Eat Me/Swallowed Whole: The latter happens in the original to Magnamon and Rapidmon. The dub turns it into the former.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Cherubimon Vice.
  • Extendable Arms: His Cable Crusher attack.
  • Fallen Angel: Cherubimon Vice
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Antylamon's eyes flicker while Cherubimon has yellow eyes.
  • Go Out with a Smile
  • Hair-Raising Hare: As Endigomon, Antylamon Virus, and Cherubimon Vice.
  • Healing Factor: Whatever is possessing Kokomon gives him this.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He tends to shimmer around the edges when agitated to indicate that he's not a normal Digimon.
  • Implacable Mon
  • Lean and Mean: Antylamon Virus looks leaner than his other forms.
  • Mental World: He trapped the season one Digidestined in his mindscape.
  • Mighty Glacier —> Lightning Bruiser: Endigomon is the former. Antylamon Virus and Cherubimon (Vice) are the latter.
  • Not Himself: When Kari shows up and sees Cherubimon, she says that it's not Kokomon anymore. Something else is acting through him.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: At least in the original Japanese, we never find out what possessed him and caused him to disappear in the first place. Subverted in the dub, while we never the know what exactly the virus is, we do know that the virus is the same who corrupted Diaboromon.
  • One-Winged Angel: Cherubimon. Bonus points for Cherubimon being an angel Digimon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As Wendigomon and Antylamon.
  • Reality Warper: As Cherubimon, he was able to reverse the colors of the scenery and de-age the characters.
  • Symbolic Blood: Any injuries that Cherubimon receives emit black spheres, which he can also use to attack. When he is destroyed from the inside, he coughs up some kind of pink cloud. The latter is accompanied by a splattering sound in the dub.
  • Theme Twin Naming: In both the original and the dub, he is referred to by the name of his In-Training form.
  • This Is Your Brain on Evil/The Corruption: In the prologue, Kokomon is spirited away by some ill-defined force; when he returns, he's bigger, nastier, more violent, and consumed with a fixation on playing with Willis. Since he's vaguely aware Willis has grown up, he decides to get a hold of every kid he can find with the same model of digivice.
    • With every evolution, he loses more and more hold on his actual self and becomes more and more of a perversion of childish innocence; its Mega form (identified in external materials as Cherubimon - Vice) is a Giant Monster Clown Rabbit with a really freaky laugh.
      • Cherubimon is at that point basically an avatar of whatever force kidnapped Kokomon. When Kari first sees Wendigomon, she describes it as a "crying digimon". When she first sees Cherubimon Vice, she realizes that the crying digimon is completely absent.
  • Yandere: A non-romantic version toward Willis, who he seems to just want to play with. He has no idea of how much time had passed since he disappeared.

    BlackWarGreymon 

BlackWarGreymon

"Time? I've given you time to answer all of my questions, and you haven't answered one yet. I should just destroy you and move on. It seems to be my purpose in life, and if that's so, then so be it. I will dedicate myself to being the most powerful... But I have to know if that is my true destiny, or if there is something more for me in this world than just fighting. Y'know, like a reason why I'm here. For some, it's money. Others, power. And for you perhaps, friendship. But I have to know the reason why I was created."

Created from a hundred Dark Spires as the ultimate evil Digimon, he is a dark clone of the final form of Agumon. He is hell-bent on destroying the Cosmic Keystones of the Digital World as he believes it will solve the existential crisis he suffers from due to his unusual origin, but he may not be as bad as he appears.

    BlackWarGreymon: Perhaps, but who gave you life? And who is your creator, Mummymon?
  • Badass: He is a Mega.
    • In "Duel Of The War Greymon", he was fighting both WarGreymon and Imperialdramon in Fighter Mode, both of them are Megas like him with one at least able to match his power; BlackGreymon still was fighting evenly despite the disadvantage.

    BlackWarGreymon: "Do you think that power is going to bring you happiness? If you do, then you're living in a dream. Power is isn't going to help you escape the loneliness you feel because you don't have any friends. It just makes it worse. Take it from me, the more powerful you get, the more alone you become. Can't take the truth, can you?
  • Cool Helmet
  • Curbstomp Battle: Delivers one in almost every battle with the DigiDestined. Being a Mega versus three Ultimates at best does that. Even against War Greymon and Imperialdramon, he still was fighting on even terms.
  • Death Seeker: Is called out on being one by Wormmon.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: "BlackWarGreymon, you ask more questions than Cody does."
  • The Determinator: Bleeding oil and having a good portion of his armor destroyed didn't stop him from trying to pick a fight with Azulongmon.
  • The Dragon: He was supposed to be this for Arukenimon, but he abandoned her immediately. The fact that his following actions during that arc matched Arukenimon's plans was pure coincidence; he was never loyal to her.

  • Offhand Backhand: Did this to Ankylomon.
  • Ominous Walk

  • Psychopathic Manchild:
    Mummymon: Calm down, big fella!
    BlackWarGreymon: Don't tell me what to do ever again! (kicks a rock at him)
    Arukenimon: BlackWarGreymon is acting just like a big crybaby who can't find his favorite toy. But we better be careful, he's an incredibly dangerous crybaby.
  • Redemption Equals Death: He protects Cody's grandfather from Oikawa, and uses what's left of his strength to seal the Highton View Terrace gateway.

Well, if they won't answer me, then why should I be concerned about them anymore? I have given every opponent the chance to convince me otherwise, but now I am through talking. Why should I care if they are destroyed? Or for that matter, their whole precious Digital World?! Destroying the Destiny Stone means my own destruction as well, but if that's what it takes to finally find my answer, then so be it."

  • Walking Wasteland: He warps the ground he walks on.
  • What Is This Thing You Call Love?
  • What Measure Is A Non-Digimon?: Arukenimon's creations before and after him had no free will or intelligence and were bent on doing whatever she told them to do. Thus the DigiDestined had no problems destroying them. BlackWarGreymon somehow ended up gaining free will due to the number of Control Spires used to make him, leaving everyone unsure of what to do about him. Even he wondered if he was really alive or not, which was the primary source of his constant frustration.

Major Villains

    Digimon Kaiser 

Digimon Emperor (Digimon Kaiser) aka Ken Ichijouji

"Of course, I am the only perfect human being."

A mysterious, human villain (a first for the series) who's taken over the Digital World and is causing random destruction and terror, using Dark Spires to prevent evolution and Dark Rings to mind-control Digimon.

Voiced by: Romi Park (JP), Derek Stephen Prince (EN)

    Dagomon 

Dragomon (Dagomon)

"Beware, child. Our master can sense your power too. And he will come for you."

A Lovecraft-inspired Ultimate-level Digimon, and the apparent ruler of the Dark Ocean, and its mysterious inhabitants. He only appeared briefly in one episode, in which his followers (who had been shackled with Dark Spirals) brought Kari to their world, though with T.K., Gatomon, and Patamon's help she escaped. The Dark Ocean creatures warned Kari that their master could sense her power and would come for her. He never did (though it's possible he was pulling the strings offscreen in the episode "Opposites Attract").


    Chimairamon 

Kimeramon (Chimairamon)

"Kimeramon is my ultimate creation. I combined the most powerful parts of other Digimon to form this unstoppable fighting creature. His Heat Viper attack will melt my enemies into oblivion."

An abhorrent beast created by the Digimon Emperor using data copied from close to a dozen other Digimon. An Ultimate, he was going to be Ken's partner in his complete subjugation of the Digital World, but unfortunately for him, Kimeramon grew uncontrollable, and became just as big a threat to him as everyone else. It was only through Wormmon sacrificing himself to give Magnamon a boost in power that Kimeramon was completely annihilated by Magna Explosion.

  • Bad Boss: He uncaringly vaporizes some Bakemon who were fighting alongside him with a Heat Viper.
  • The Berserker: "He doesn't care who he hits! He's totally out of control!"
  • Breath Weapon: Heat Viper.
  • Convection Schmonvection: Averted. His attack is so hot that just being in the vicinity of it knocks back and damages Digimon.
  • Demonic Possession: Probably shouldn't should have used parts of Devimon, Ken.
  • Dynamic Entry: Even if the walls and ceilings he's smashing are part of the Digimon Emperor's own headquarters.
  • Evil Laugh
  • Evil Redhead
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Fangs Are Evil
  • Flight
  • Giant Flyer
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When he's first unleashed against the DigiDestined, they glow red.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: A set of both.
  • Hybrid Monster: Including:
  • The Juggernaut: Only Magnamon was able to faze Kimeramon, and even he technically lost in their fight, experiencing a Heroic RROD that undoubtedly would have led to his destruction had Wormmon not sacrificed himself to give Magnamon the chance to use an attack that ended up turning him back into DemiVeeMon (so it's a good thing it worked).
  • Kaiju: Kimeramon is a colossus. Nobody does any climbing, though.
  • Killed Off for Real: Given the circumstances of his creation its a bit doubtful that he'd reincarnate like any other Digimon.
  • Legacy Character: Milleniummon was created by the fusion of a Kimeramon and a Machinedramon, and the Dark Spore he infected Ken with may have influenced him into creating another Kimeramon.
  • Light Is Not Good: His attribute is Data, probably because the Data and Vaccine types that compose him outnumber the Virus ones.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous
  • Names To Run Away From Really Fast: K Names
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: In-universe this seems to be Ken's design concept - take the best parts of the coolest and most powerful Digimon to create the ultimate fighting machine. He even adds MetalGreymon's hair for no apparent reason other than it looks good. This is especially funny because MetalGreymon is the most powerful Digimon he used along with SkullGreymon (with the possible exception of Devimon, who, being a Champion-level, we don't know how he would fare in a battle against an Ultimate, but is obviously much more powerful than most other Champion-levels). He didn't pick MetalGreymon's trident-hook-robotic arm, he didn't pick his breastplate nuke, he didn't pick his metallic helmet, no, he went with the only part in his body that seems to serve no function at all other than looking cool, though it could have something to do with heat dispersal.
  • Oh Crap: The look on his face as he's being vaporized by Magna Explosion.
  • Person of Mass Destruction
  • Retcon: Kimeramon as originally conceived was an Ultimate (Mega) level, on equal power with, say, Machinedramon (see below). Possibly because the Card Game's restrictions on Armor evolving reduced Magnamon to a Champion equivalent, Kimeramon was bumped down to Perfect (Eng: Ultimate) to put him closer to Magnamon's abilities.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: Before his actual debut, he made a few apperances as a blacked out figure on monitors.
  • The Starscream
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes
  • Tail Slap
  • Tattooed Crook: Devimon's skull tattoo.
  • Technicolor Fire: Green.
  • Too Many Belts: A holdover from Devimon.
  • Turned Against Their Masters
  • The Voiceless: The only time he actually speaks is when he's announcing Heat Viper.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Unlike in almost every other case, the DigiDestined have no qualms about destroying him. It's probably because he was put together by Ken, and isn't a "true" Digimon.

    Archnemon & Mummymon 

Arukenimon (Archnemon) & Mummymon

After the Digimon Emperor's defeat, these two mysterious villains start appearing in the Digital World and causing trouble. Both are humanoid, although Arukenimon resembles a spider and Mummymon, well, a mummy. Arukenimon has the power to turn the remaining Dark Spires into evil Digimon, but otherwise they're not really that powerful, and tend to hide from the Chosen Children.

Arukenimon is voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (JP), Mari Devon (EN)
Mummymon is voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (JP), Kirk Thornton (EN)


Tropes for Both:


Arukenimon:

"This is fun. Nothing quite relaxes me like scaring kids."


Mummymon:

"Just think of me as a well wrapped present!"

    Yukio Oikawa 

Yukio Oikawa

"I have to harvest all the Dark Spores in order for me to fulfill my deepest desire. I've always wanted to go to the Digital World."

Who'd have thunk there's not one but two human villains in this season? As a child, he and his best friend, Cody's father, made contact with the Digital World through their video games. After Cody's father died, Oikawa became obsessed with visiting the Digital World of their dreams, making him easy prey for Myotismon's wayward data to manipulate in order to resurrect himself.

    Milleniummon 

Millenniummon

An exceedingly powerful Digimon that has a dominant hand in both Adventure, and has some presence in the world of Digimon Tamers. Ironically, it's never seen in any of the actual shows (save for a brief cameo in "Invasion of the Daemon Corps") but he created the Dark Spores and corrupted Ken with them, triggering Ken's Start of Darkness.

His alternate forms are as follows:
  • Kimeramon and Machinedramon: The two Digimon (a Hybrid Monster and a Mix-and-Match Man, respectively) whose fusion created him. Their origins are unknown although Fanon states the Machinedramon was the famous one from Digimon Adventure..
  • Moon=Millenniummon: Basically his soul given form as a Digimon, it is a two-headed serpentine creature sealed within a crystal.
  • ZeedMillenniummon: His ultimate form, a two-headed entity sealed within power-supressing fractal code, and whose lower half is crystal.


  • All There in the Manual: His own origin story and how it ties into the 02; he self-destructed after Ken and Ryo Akiyama (yes, THAT one) defeated him in the Wonderswan games, scattering the Dark Spores everywhere and implanting Ken with one.
  • Bigger Bad: Responsible for almost everything that goes wrong in 02 but only shows up for a three second cameo. (He figures more prominently in the Wonderswan games and the Digimon Battle Spirit game).
  • The Cameo
  • Eldritch Abomination
  • Fusion Dance: Created from a Kimeramon and Machinedramon (the Dark Master from the previous season).
  • Serial Escalation: He's the fusion of two major fusion monsters. There's data for almost two dozen Digimon in this guy.
  • Time Master: As his name implies, Millenniummon was able to freely travel through time and his attacks deal with manipulating space/time.
  • Ultimate Evil

    Demon 

Daemon (Demon)

"You certainly have a lot of nerve to cross the powers of darkness."

A villain who led a small group of demonic Digimon that terrorized the town while attempt to retrieve Dark Spores from Oikawa and then is removed from the plot and into the Dark Ocean soon after, he is most notably a Knight of Cerebus who is high above in the Digimon Sorting Algorithm of Evil, that he is had to be sealed away. Which is shame that because he was one of the few who knows the purpose of the spores and the Dark Ocean in general.

    Vamdemon 

Myotismon (Vamdemon)

"The two worlds will unite in darkness, then they shall both be mine!"

His spirit survived destruction at the hands of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon last season, and he spent three years possessing Oikawa and working on his eventual return. He's even more malicious and determined than he was last time - the first thing he did upon resurrecting was torture and murder his minions to test his new power.

His new Digivolutions this season are:
