"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 underdogat 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.
Determinator: Even though even he realizes how futile it is to fight MaloMyotismon, 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 MaloMyotismon's Lotus-Eater Machine, which Davis resisted through sheer determination and desire to end MaloMyotismon.
Dragon Rider: Raidramon can't fly, but XVeemon, Paildramon, and Imperialdramon all can. Raidramon makes up for it by being lightning quick.
Fearless Fool: Rather than courageous Davis 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 Tai, unlike Tai though he never grows out of it.
The Leader: Ostensibly, being the gogglehead. Mostly type 3 with enough force of personality to qualify for 4, Davis 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.
Even more notable in that, as this DeviantArt points out, of all the animated goggle boys (up to Savers, at least), Davis is the only lead Tamer who managed to go a whole season without evolving his Digimon partner via dark emotions.
Screw Learning, I Have Phlebotinum!: The Crest of Kindness and subsequently the Digi-Egg/Digimental of Miracles that allowed Davis to "see Ken's true heart", well before the other children learn to trust Ken.
Special Guest: Is a featured character during one of V-Tamer's specials: Double Tamer. As V-Tamer wasn't forced to keep Davis as the Idiot Hero, he was actually done a favor and given some much appreciated character development. Given Veemon'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: Davis 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 Fladramon and having Veemon 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.
Veemon 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.
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.
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.
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.
Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: she and Kari 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.)
Cody 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.
Having grown up a little, TK 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 Kari 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.
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.
Even though she has grown up, Kari 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.
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.
"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, Davis and Wormmon seem pretty determined to help him reform. In the conclusion of 02, he marries Yolei and becomes a detective (a police officer in the original Japanese version).
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: Deconstructed Trope to a degree, as 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: Sam. He found Ken playing with the Digivice that he thought was his, and exploded at him. Much of it was Sam snapping under pressure to succeed. On the whole, though, Sam 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.
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 Daavis 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.
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.) Davis 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.
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.
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: Subverted 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.
The Lancer: Replaces TK 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.
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.
Talking to Himself: In the dub, Ken and Veemon are both voiced by Derek Stephen Prince, and in the original Japanese, Romi Park voiced both him and his brother Osamu.
In the Swedish dub, both Ken and Matt are voiced by Leo Hallerstam. Which proves amusing in the World Tour Episode.
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.His digivolutions are as follows:
Fresh: Chibomon (Chicomon), a blue blob.
In-Training: DemiVeemon (Chibimon), a miniature (and cuter) version of Veemon. Blows bubbles.
Rookie: Veemon, his default form.
Courage: Flamedramon (Fladramon), a larger Veemon with red fire armor.
Friendship: Raidramon (Lighdramon), a larger Veemon on all fours with black electric armor.
Miracles: Magnamon, a larger Veemon with golden armor.
Champion: ExVeemon (X Veemon). A giant bulked-up Veemon with wings.
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.
Ambiguous Gender: Silphymon, Valkyrimon, and Harpymon are all named for female mythical creatures of the air. For bonus points, each of these forms relates in some way to Kari and Gatomon (Valkyrimon is Sylphimon's evolution, and Harpymon is Hawkmon's Armor Evolution via the Digi-Egg of Light).
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.
Kindness: Pucchiemon, a small white pixie with red gloves, boots and headgear, only seen in the Wonder Swan games.
The Conscience: Wormmon plays a badly mistreated and loyal conscience to Ken.
Dark Is Not Evil / My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Wormmon is notably a Virus-type, but doesn't seem to be that much of a bad guy - not even if he serves the Kaiser. In fact, he really is a good guy - his loyalty isn't to the Kaiser, but to the kind and gentle Ken that he believes is still there in some form.
Happiness in Slavery: Sort of. He serves Ken as any Digimon partner would, but doesn't enjoy his ill treatment.
My Master, Right or Wrong: Will serve Ken no matter what, even if he's the Digimon Kaiser. The only reason he ever turns against him is because he's afraid that Ken will end up destroying himself, and that he's lost the "true Ken" that he loves.
Took a Level in Badass: Initially a Butt Monkey, but when he's able to evolve into Stingmon, who in his second fight was eventually matched Rockmon/Golemmon, who had taken on the rest of the main digimon and curbstomped them.
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:
Hope: Pegasusmon (Pegasmon), a golden-armored winged horse.
Ultimate (DNA): Shakkoumon, a white and gold angel/clay doll combination.
The second seasons adds these tropes to Patamon's character:
Achilles Heel: The Control Spiral Digimon, not being natural, are unaffected by Angemon's holy attacks.
Badass Decay: His evolution lines. Remember how Angemon was so powerful that he didn't start making regular appearances until everyone else had reached Ultimate (or mega in the case of Agumon and Gabumon) or how MagnaAngemon was so broken that he was only in the last 3 episodes? Well here we find out Angemon is only powerful against evil Digimon, not necessarily all powerful. MagnaAngemon doesn't suffer too bad at first, nearly beating BlackWargeymon and may have, had BlackWargeymon not destroyed his power sources, however all subsequence appearances of MagnaAngemon treat him as an average level Ultimate Digimon, even against real evil Digimon who he should have an advantage of such as the Daemon corps.
Combination Attack: As Pegasusmon, has one with Nefertimon, Golden Noose (Sanctuary Bind), which creates a thread of golden light to tie things up with.
Head Pet: Even after several years, Patamon still prefers sitting on TK's head.
The Worf Effect: This time around, Angemon had a tendency to get this. Meanwhile, Seraphimon's debut in the film pretty much kickstarted his recurring tendency to be this in Digimon canon as a whole.
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:
Light: Nefertimon, a flying cat with Egyptian-themed armor.
Ultimate (DNA): Silphymon, a white & red warrior with Hawkmon's feathers, Gatomon's ears, and a metal visor.
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?!"
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.
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.
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.
The All American Boy: His physical design has shades of this, especially when he wears his overalls as a child.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What Could Have Been: On the first version of Fox Kids' movie website, Willis' name was left as "Wallace." Updated versions replaced his name with "Willis", seemingly indicating that the movie was initially going to keep his original name.
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.
"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").
Bad Boss: Presumably in the dub, since his followers wanted Kari to help them overthrow him.
"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.
Voiced by: Tom Wyner (EN)
All Your Powers Combined: Almost every single family of Digimon-kind is represented here. Virus Busters (Angemon), Nightmare Soldiers (Devimon, Skull-Greymon), Jungle Troopers (Kabuterimon, Kuwagamon), Dragon's Roar (Greymon, Monochromon), Nature Spirits (Garurumon), Wind Guardians (Airdramon), and Metal Empire (Metal Greymon). No Deep Savers, mind you. Of course, that's the last thing Kimeramon would need; submarine capabilities.
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.
Oh Crap: The look on his face as he's being vaporized by Magna Explosion.
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 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.
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.
Family Unfriendly Death: Arukenimon was torture-murdered, while Mummymon was melted. However, despite the circumstances of their creation, Word Of God confirmed that they were resurrected at Primary Village, and got a second chance. It doesn't make their deaths any less gruesome but yay, happy ending!
Joker Immunity: Given that the DigiDestined gained the propensity to kill them not long after their debuts, they lasted very long especially given the significant threat they posed. The two made sure they wouldn't confront the DigiDestined directly. Hey, they gotta get Genre Savvy sooner or later.
Evil Plan: "Alright, so now you know. Big deal. Our plan was a simple one. Build as many Control Spires as possible, and destroy the balance of the Digital World once and for all. You got a problem? So sue me."
Fake Ultimate Hero: Fake Ultimate Villain, in her case. She initially took all the credit for manipulating Ken into doing everything he did as the Digimon Emperor, though it would later turn out she was just the lackey of Oikawa, who in turn was being manipulated by Myotismon.
Magic Music: She once used a flute to control insect and arachnid Digimon, including Stingmon and Digmon.
Mook Maker: She can use her hair to turn the Control Spires that Ken made into fake Digimon. They're pretty powerful as well, but essentially mindless monsters completely devoted to whatever she orders them to do (though BlackWarGreymon somehow got a mind of his own). However, because of this, the DigiDestined have no moral qualms about destroying them because they're not sentient or even alive.
Think Happy Thoughts: "Those DigiBrats make me so tense! I've got to try and relax. Maybe I should think happy thoughts. Let's see; evil spells, crushing my enemies, more Control Spires, less DigiDestined. Oh, I can't keep those kids out of my head!"
Supernatural Angst: "I can't help but remember that conversation with BlackWarGreymon. He's a Digimon, and Oikawa's a human, so what are we supposed to be? Chopped liver, virtual viruses, horror film wannabees? I'm telling you my dear, this is giving me a vast feeling of inferiority!"
This Is Unforgivable: After MaloMyotismon's brutal torture and murder of his love, Arukenimon, right in front of him, he becomes both heartbroken and PISSED OFF at the same time, and, in his own Crowning Moment of Awesome, he lets him know of this in no uncertain terms.
Mummymon: You don't scare me! You've taken away my Arukenimon, and now I'm going to make you pay for what you did to her! MaloMyotismon: Hah. What do you plan to do, wrap me in another useless Snake Bandage? You scare me even less than these DigiDestined fools from the other world. Mummymon: Then I will teach you to fear me!!
Tongue Trauma: Being jumped on (just as he's about to slurp some soup) by Digitamamon and Tapirmon causes him to bite his tongue - and considering how sharp his teeth are...yeah.
Arukenimon: Anyone ever tell you you have bad breath?
Mummymon: Why that's impossible. I think I brushed my teeth at least a year ago.
"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 evolution of Agumon. He is hell-bent on destroying the Cosmic Keystones of the Digital World. But is he really as bad as he appears?
BlackWarGreymon: Did you create your two flunkies because you were afraid to be alone? What's the matter, cat got your tongue?
Oikawa: That's absurd! Do you really think I'm that foolish? I can obliterate you in a heartbeat, don't forget that!"
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?
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.
Noble Demon: Not counting other Control Spire ones, he merely beat Digimon instead of destroying them, and he always gave the DigiDestined the chance to stand aside whenever they confronted him at a Destiny Stone.
Villainous Breakdown: "I keep asking questions of my enemies, and yet I still get no answers. Why am I so different from them? Why was I created like this? 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."
Villainous Valor: Shakkoumon shows up and is the first thing to really start to hurt him, and despite taking a beating from him and Paildramon and Silphymon, he still gets back up, and promptly curbstomps all three of them.
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.
"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.
Family Unfriendly Death: Myotismon's spirit exiting his body through the mouth fatally injures him, though before it can kill him, he redeems himself by using the power of the alternate dimension to turn himself into pure energy that will restore and guard the Digital World.
Famous Last Words: "Don't worry. I'll always be here, inside the Digital World. I shall protect it. Goodbye, DigiDestined, and thank you."
Freudian Excuse: He was already a withdrawn person, but at least he had Cody's father to hang out with. When he died, he was distraught and very lonely and began to obsess on going to the Digital World which they discovered, by any means. Even allowing a malevolent Digimon to take over his body.
Take Over the World: "My plan is working perfectly. Soon I will be powerful enough to destroy those DigiDestined once and for all, and take my rightful place as ruler of the Digital World!" However, that was probably Myotismon talking.
We Wait: "Excellent. With the spores implanted, we just have to wait. In time, they'll bloom inside the children."
World Healing Wave: Lets loose one of these with his dying breath, converting himself into energy and undoing the damage MaloMyotismon had caused to the Digital World. More justifed than most since he used a world already said to be capable of making your dreams become a reality to make it happen.
"It's been a long time, but I remember you were a good friend of Hiroki's. You never had many friends, and I always thought you were a bit of an odd duck, but I never imagined that you'd go completely mad."
An exceedingly powerful Digimon that has a dominant hand in both Adventure Series, 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. The Machinedramon was one of the Dark Masters, while the Kimeramon's origin is unknown.
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 Adventure universe; specifically, he was the one that released Apocalymon back in Adventure and kicked off that story, and started this one when 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 everything that goes wrong in the Adventure universe. Only shows up for a three second cameo. (He figures more prominently in the Wonderswan games and the Digimon Battle Spirit game).
"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:
Hijacked by Ganon: A villain from Adventure who wasn't even the most powerful. However, at least vaguely foreshadowed by BlackWarGreymon sensing him inside his host, and claiming that he cannot be allowed into the Digital World again.
Technically, there's a bit of foreshadowing from the very first episode, though it's really hard to notice. The mark displayed on the Emperor's eyemask is identical to the mark on Myotismon's coffin from Adventure.
The Man Behind the Man: He's the one who is behind the major events in the series; from the manipulations of Oikawa and Ken and the creations of Arukenimon and Mummymon to the wars of the Digital Emperor, the creations of the Dark Towers, the Dark Rings and Kimeramon and then the invasions of the real world, creation of BlackWarGreymon, the destructions of the Destiny Stones and the power upgrades of the Dark Spores.
Talking the Monster to Death: Literally, as he falls to pieces when the Dark Spore children talk about their hopes and dreams, and expel the darkness he was using to withstand the light of the DigiDestined.
