- The Team -
- The Leader / The Hero: Takuya, a mix between Headstrong and Levelheaded, with Levelheaded becoming more prominent by the end
- The Lancer: Koji an Aloof Ally before joining permanently. Takuya's direct foil and consistently equal in power
- The Chick: Zoe, adds a feminine touch
- The Big Guy: JP, the eldest and largest, Big Fun comic relief, occasionally shows Smart Guy attributes
- Tagalong Kid: Tommy, the youngest and smallest. Sometimes the Smart Guy as he's the most levelheaded as he matures.
- Sixth Ranger: Koichi
- Those Two Guys/ Non-Human Sidekick:
- Hero of Another Story / The Load: Katsuharu, Teppei, Chiaki, and Teruo whose brief appearance suggest they might have been candidates for the other four spirits.
- Sigil Spam: Takuya has it the most, but all of them except for Koichi have stylized versions of the Kanji for their respective elements somewhere on at least one of their Digimon forms.
Takuya begins the series as a typical "goggle boy", (only he wears a hat underneath his gray and square goggles)—energetic and athletic, but tending to act without thinking and very stubborn. He has a strong sense of justice, and tries to use his power to do what he believes is right. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientGreymon, Warrior of Flame.
His Spirit Evolutions are as follows:
- Rookie: Flamemon, a small humanoid with goat-like features and red hair. He temporarily becomes this form for an episode in the Real World
- Human Hybrid: Agunimon (Agnimon), a demon man digimon. He resembles a human wearing dragon armor that is reminiscent of Greymon
- Beast Hybrid: BurningGreymon (Vritramon), A demon dragon digimon. A vaguely humanoid dragon with an Arm Cannon on each wrist
- Advance Hybrid: Aldamon (Ardhamon), a demon man digimon. Basically, Agunimon's head and hands on BurningGreymon's body.
- Zeta Hybrid: EmperorGreymon (KaiserGreymon), A dragon warrior digimon. More or less a heavily armored WarGreymon with a huge sword that doubles as a crossbow.
- Arm Cannon: He has the arm-mounted variety as BurningGreymon and Aldamon.
- Anime Hair: His Agunimon and Aldamon forms have a pretty ridiculous hairstyle.
- Badass: All of his Digimon forms.
- The Berserker: When he first gets his beast spirit. From his perspective, the others appear to be monsters.
- BFS: Emperor Greymon's sword, which also acts as a BFG (Dragonfire Crosssbow) and a fire attack (Pyro Dragons).
- Cool Sword: Wields one as Emperor Greymon.
- Big Brother Instinct: Shades of this towards Tommy.
- Cute Little Fangs: As Agunimon and Aldamon.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Near all his Digimon forms are demon types.
- Determinator: Deconstructed by the time Duskmon rolls around, as he learns the hard way it's not a positive trait if there's no way to win. For the most part however, it does do him good.
- Draconic Humanoid: As EmperorGreymon, though not as much as Dynasmon.
- Dragon Knight: EmperorGreymon has the appearance of one.
- Elemental Punch: A fire-based one as Agunimon. He uses a similar attack as Aldamon to finish off Mercurymon.
- Expy: His actions, personality, goggles and role are of the Tai trademark. He even has a very similar character arc:
- Starts out as a hotheaded Idiot Hero, he then has a close brush with death and learns to think, becoming an effective leader in the process.
- Likewise, some of his evolutions are expies of Greymon and his evolutions. Vritramon was renamed BurningGreymon in the dub to drive home the reference.
- Losing control as Burninggreymon is similar to how Tai lost control of Skullgreymon.
- EmperorGreymon's design is basically a more heavily-armored WarGreymon with a sword.
- Facial Markings: Both Agunimon and Aldamon have two red stripes on either cheek and they appear on Susanoomon.
- Fiery Salamander: Not as much as his predecessors, since his first Digimon forms are more humanoid-looking, but the motif is still there.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Yet again. But he does use them properly.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: All of his Digimon forms use it as a secondary color scheme for their armor.
- The Hero
- Idiot Hero: A stunning demonstration of this was the way he handled Duskmon's first and second appearances. Koji nearly freaked out about it. His Character Development does away with this trope.
- Heroic BSOD: After his stunning loss against Duskmon, Takuya enters one. It takes a reminder of his origins for him to snap out of it.
- He's Back: When he recovers from his Heroic BSOD and returns to the Digital World.
- Hotblooded: Though noticeably less so than Tai or Davis, or Marcus sitting at a sort of half-way point between them and Takato.
- Hot Wings: BurningGreymon, Aldamon and by extension, AncientGreymon Depending on the Artist.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: EmperorGreymon's Pyro Dragons attack.
- Jumped at the Call
- Law of Chromatic Superiority
- Leitmotif: "Honoo no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Flame"; it's an instrumental rendition of his Image Song.
- Lightning Bruiser: Mixes this with Jack of All Stats. He hits pretty hard (not quite as hard as JP's evolutions, at least compared level to level) and he's surprisingly mobile and agile (though he's not as fast as Zoe or Koji)
- Mighty Roar: When Takuya is still struggling to gain control of BurningGreymon, the Beast Spirit was prone to letting out Godzilla-type roars. Even after he establishes control, Vritramon does a lot of screaming.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: His Aldamon form is a mix of Agunimon and BurningGreymon.
- Agunimon's original self, AncientGreymon, is a quadrupedal BurningGreymon with Agunimon's leg armor on the forelegs.
- Morphic Resonance: EmperorGreymon's helmet has a metallic version of the horns from Agunimon's mask in the equivalent locations (right next to the eyes). In both forms, it's a Call Back to WarGreymon In addition, Susanoomon has Agunimon's belt buckle, though the buckle has a different symbol on it. It's from MagnaGarurumon, but it's the right color, the same shape and in the same place. Agunimon's Facial Markings also appear on Susanoomon along with the blue eyes of Takuya's Digimon forms.
- Not a Game: Takuya eventually realizes that he must put more effort into his responsibilities as a legendary warrior, and make a greater effort to safeguard the lives of his friends.
- Our Demons Are Different: Agunimon and Aldamon are demon man digimon.
- Our Dragons Are Different: BurningGreymon is based on Vritra, an evil dragon in Vedic folklore. Aldamon carries some of these features.
- Personality Powers
- Playing with Fire
- Protagonist Power-Up Privileges: To an even greater degree than the first two seasons. He gets access to two power levels that most of the team doesn't instead of just one like Agumon and Veemon.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When he absorbs his Beast Spirit, he transforms into BurningGreymon and has no control of that form, causing him to go into a berserk rage. While in that state, his eyes are red. They revert to the blue eyes that all of Takuya's Digimon forms have after he calms down.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Koji's blue.
- Shaping Your Attacks: EmperorGreymon's Pyro Dragons attack uses several streamers of fire in the shape of dragon heads.
- Ship Tease / Will They or Won't They?: With Zoe, they do a sort of flirting-while-denying it thing throughout the series, and an episode right near the end all but outright states that they like each other (and in that way, no matter Takuya's protests)
- Shoulders of Doom: EmperorGreymon's armor has these.
- Sigil Spam: All of his Digimon forms except BurningGreymon have a stylized fire kanji somewhere on their person. EmperorGreymon has two on his chestplate.
- Spam Attack: BurningGreymon's Pyro Barrage and Aldamon's Atomic Inferno.
- Story-Breaker Power: Like Koji, he gets a Zeta Hybrid (the equivalent of a second evolution Mega, like Omnimon or Gallantmon Crimson mode, though perhaps not quite as strong). EmperorGreymon is second only to Susanoomon as far as our heroes' Digimon goes and perhaps third strongest in the series after he proves his superiority over Dynasmon
- This Is Unforgivable!: Takuya immediately flies into the mode of this trope in the third-to-last episode when Lucemon absorbs Koichi's data following his Heroic Sacrifice, announcing that he has gone too far, after which both he and Koji trigger their Transformation Sequence into Susanoomon.
- Tornado Move: Pyro Tornado.
- Wreathed in Flames: Agunimon's Pyro Tornado and BurningGreymon's Wildfire Tsunami.
Koji Minamoto (Minamoto Koji)
Koji starts the series as the group loner - a kid who wanted friends, but always tried not to get too attached because he believed they'd always go their separate ways eventually. He showed up to help the other DigiDestined from time to time, and then eventually joins the group permanently. He often distances himself from the others, refusing to let anyone get too close to him. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientGarurumon, Warrior of Light.
His Spirit Evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Lobomon (Wolfmon),a warrior digimon. His appearance is that of a human wearing wolf themed armor that vaguely resembles Garurumon
- Beast Hybrid: KendoGarurumon (Garmmon), A cyborg digimon. A robotic wolf with wings and roller skates. Strongly resembles MetalGarurumon
- Advance Hybrid: Beowulfmon, a warrior digimon. Basically, Lobomon wearing parts of KendoGarurumon as armor and weapons.
- Zeta Hybrid: MagnaGarurumon, A cyborg digimon. A humanoid wolf wearing heavy armor and artillery
- Aloof Ally: At first, he typically fights and travels on his own.
- Animal Motifs: Wolf
- Badass Normal
- Big Brother Instinct: Inverted. Sort of. He's younger, but Koji becomes very protective of his twin brother, Koichi, later on in the series.
- Debt Detester: He is bitter at first, because Takuya saves his life.
- Empowered Badass Normal
- Expy: Of Matt.
- Likewise, some of his evolutions are expies of Garurumon and his evolutions. Garmmon was renamed KendoGarurumon in the dub to drive home the reference.
- Eye Beams: Uses them twice during his fight with Karatenmon.
- Fragile Speedster
- Though less so than Zoe. At least he's capable of defeating opponents in both his forms. MagnaGarurumon takes this further, being a sort of a combination of Lightning Bruiser and Glass Cannon.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: All of his Digimon forms except for Lobomon use it.
- Gratuitous German: In the original version, all of Koji's evolutions have Germanic names and his attack names are in German.
- Gratuitous Spanish: Wolfmon was renamed "Lobomon" in the US dub, where "lobo" means "wolf."
- Heavenly Blue: Averted with MagnaGarurumon, who is blue, but has no connection to anything divine, though it's played straight with Susanoomon, who uses some of MagnaGarurumon's armor.
- Image Song: "In the Blue"
- Ineffectual Loner: Has a rotten personality at the beginning and largely preferred to act on his own.
- The Lancer
- Laser Blade: as Lobomon and MagnaGarurumon
- Leitmotif: "Hikari no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Light"
- Light 'em Up: In the non-holy way.
- Light Is Good: Although he is one of the few (if not the only) protagonist Digidestined associated with light that lacks any Holy connotations
- Melancholy Moon: His Image Song, "In the Blue", talks about his loneliness with the line, "I laugh / In the blue, blue moon" in the chorus.
- More Dakka: As MagnaGarurumon.
- Noble Wolf: All of his Digimon forms have canine features and his element is light.
- Non-Indicative Name: KendoGarurumon doesn't really have anything to do with Kendo. Early promotional material for the dub named the character as BladeGarurumon, a name which made at least slightly more sense, before it was changed.
- For that matter, Beowulfmon doesn't have a whole lot to do with Beowulf.
- Protagonist Power-Up Privileges: To a greater degree than his counterparts in the first two seasons. Like Takuya, he gets two more power levels than the rest of the heroes.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Takuya's red.
- Rollerblade Good: Kendo Garurumon has roller-skates on his feet.
- Scarf of Asskicking: As Lobomon.
- Shaping Your Attacks: Beowulfmon's Frozen Hunter attack is shaped like a giant wolf made of light.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: In a literal way. His wields the Light spirits, while Kouichi uses the Darkness spirits.
- Story-Breaker Power: like Takuya, he gains the ultra-powerful Zeta Hybrid ( equivalent to a second evolution Mega, like Omnimon or Gallantmon crimson mode, though not quite that powerful), although he's clearly not quite on Takuya's level
- Theme Twin Naming: Koichi and Koji, or "first light" and "second light" respectively.
- Troubled, but Cute
- Weapon of Choice
- Arm Cannon: Lobomon's Howling Laser is one that is attached to his arm.
- MagnaGarurumon has both varieties of this trope.
- BFG: Magna Garurumon's entire right arm is a gun.
- BFS: Beowulfmon's Beosabre.
- Breath Weapon: Kendo Garurumon's Lupine Laser.
- Dual Wielding: Lobomon's Lobo Kendo.
- Macross Missile Massacre: Magna Garurumon's go-to move.
- More Dakka: Again, MagnaGarurumon exemplifies this.
- Spam Attack: He can fire continuously until his ammo runs out.
- Wolf Man: Lobomon appears as a humanoid wearing wolf armor.
Zoe Orimoto (Orimoto Izumi)"I won't act like someone I'm not just so I can be popular."
Zoe is the only girl in the group. She is very kind and while she fights, she does it to protect others and herself. As Ranamon put it, she's usually too nice to kill an enemy. Although, she does still have her tough side, and is not afraid of speaking her mind when she feels strongly about something. She is very good looking too, and all the guys have a crush on her, especially J.P. Her Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientKazemon, Warrior of Wind.
Her spirit evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Kazemon (Fairymon), a fairy digimon. She is an attractive girl wearing purple armor with butterfly wings
- Beast Hybrid: Zephyrmon (Shutumon), A bird-man digimon. Resembles a more mature looking Kazemon with more feral armor and large bird wings as well as an odd bird wing shaped haircut.
- Action Girl: Once she gets her Beast Spirit, she really begins to start kicking ass; even being able to control it right away whereas none of the guys could. Admittedly is more of a Faux Action Girl before that, though.
- Ass Kicks You: Love Tap/Arido Anca falls under this.
- Bare Your Midriff
- Big Eater: More than JP!
- Blow You Away
- Brought Down to Normal: She loses her spirit to Grumblemon. J.P. gets it back for her later on.
- But Not Too Foreign: Japanese, but grew up in Italy. Still a blonde, but this is anime.
- Cat Fight: With Ranamon.
- Catch Phrase: "Commozione!", in Japan only.
- The Chick
- Cute Monster Girl: Her "Beast" Spirit is much more human looking than any of the guys. And...really, really cute. Lamp Shaded; this really pisses of Calmarimon. In fact, all of her forms could count.
- Coy, Girlish Flirt Pose: Combined with an animated version of Say It with Hearts, to try and get help from a Trailmon, of all things. It works. Takuya sweatdrops, while JP is in love.
- Designated Girl Fight: Frequently with Ranamon.
- Distracted by the Sexy: Her entire outfit as Kazemon speaks this, and her Love Tap attack is even meant to make her enemies fall in love with her to distract them.
- There are some instances when this applies even when she's in her human form, primarily with J.P. Also, Takuya got distracted from his battle with Cherubimon daydreaming about being on a date with her after she offered him one.
- Dude Magnet: Takuya, Koji, and JP have all shown some interest in her. Even Tommy has proven to have some feelings for her, as hearts showed in his eyes while blushing when she gave him a hug after she saved the guys from Ranamon. The Honey Beemon and Toucanmon are both attracted to her as well.
- Expy: Has traits of Sora and Mimi from the first series.
- Facial Markings: A green stripe on either cheek and on either side of the forehead as Kazemon.
- Fanservice: Gotta love a girl who can envision herself modeling skimpy bathing suits and win an eating contest all in the span of three or four episodes, not to mention the skimpy outfits of her Digimon forms.
- She seems to be the first Digimon main female drawn for fanservice. Not only the aforementioned, but she wears a short shirt that shows her stomach, has long blonde hair, and has a sexy pink skirt. She even has moments where she's shown undressing, and one where she's almost naked with Takuya and J.P. walking in on accident staring, showing further she was intended for fanservice.
- The fact that almost all the males in the show are shown to be attracted to her somewhat, even her own teammates. At times, she even has used her good looks to bribe males into doing things for her, especially J.P.
- Sexy Dynamite!
- Faux Action Girl: Even compared to other examples of this trope, it's ridiculous. Kazemon is probably the only main character Digimon in the series to lose after evolving for the first time. Zephyrmon averts this and this may be an in-universe reason for her using her Beast Spirit more than the others. Zephyrmon took out her first opponent with one hit and no "must control the beast spirit's power" time.
- Fragile Speedster
- Friend to All Living Things: All the wild Digimon flock towards her rather than the guys because of her kindness and compassion. Particularly shown with the HoneyBeemon and Gomamon.
- Gratuitous Foreign Language: Italian, in this case.
- The Heroine: While Takuya is undoubtedly the Hero, her personality and actions are actually just about as heroic as his. She's the Heroine to Takuya's Hero, which strongly explains their initial disagreements. She is shown always to want to help others and keep everyone safe.
- Image Song: "Kaze no Shizuku", which translates to "Wind Drops"
- Kick Chick: Kazemon yes, Zephyrmon no.
- Leitmotif: "Kaze no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Wind"
- Ms. Fanservice: And the first Digimon female main cast character to be so. She's kinda young, but... yeah, she definitely has it going on, especially with how skimpy her Digimon forms' outfits are.
- Nice Hat
- Nice Girl: Easily the kindest character in the show.
- Oblivious to Love: Is the object of JP, Takuya, Koji, and Tommy's affections. Doesn't seem to want anything out of it though, even with how obvious J.P. makes it.
- One-Way Visor: As Kazemon.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Her human form is even called "Fairymon" in the Japanese version.
- Razor Wind: Zephyrmon's Hurricane Gale attack.
- Ship Tease / Will They or Won't They?: While she had a few ship teases with JP and Koji, she had the most with Takuya and an episode near the end all but confirms the pairing as canon.
- The Smurfette Principle
- Spin Attack: Kazemon's Tempest Twist.
- Stripperiffic: Both of her forms.
- Wind is Green: As a secondary coloration for Kazemon only. Completely averted otherwise.
- Women Are Wiser: When the other guys say she won't be able to control her Beast Spirit considering they all weren't able to, she states she will because she's a girl and girls can "handle power better." She proves herself right.
- Taking the Bullet: The only reason why Tommy wasn't Brought Down to Normal before her.
- Tornado Move: Zephyrmon is shown to be able to use one during the battle with IceDevimon, though it was only used to generate a whirlwind that was used in a combined attack with a small-scale Breath Weapon from Korikakumon.
- Winged Humanoid: Both Kazemon and Zephyrmon.
- Zettai Ryouiki: All of her forms have this to some degree.
Tommy Himi (Himi Tomoki)
Tommy is the youngest member of the group. He is always genuine in his feelings and looks up to Takuya Kanbara as his hero. As the series progresses, Tommy learns to stand up for himself, even fighting his own battles. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientMegatheriummon, Warrior of Ice.
His spirit evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Kumamon (Chakkumon),a beast man digimon. A humanoid polar bear with green armor and a snowball cannon
- Beast Hybrid: Korikakumon (Blizzarmon), A beast digimon. Resembles a large white yeti with spear-tipped dread-locks and two huge axes
- Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Korikakumon has earrings.
- An Axe to Grind: Korikakumon has two.
- An Ice Person
- Animal Motifs: A Sloth and Bear.
- Badass Adorable: Both as a human and as Kumamon.
- Badass Beard: The fur around Korikakumon's head forms one.
- The Berserker: Downplayed the first time he uses his beast spirit. He managed to avoid completely losing it the way Takuya did, but he still seemed to really enjoy curbstomping Petaldramon.
- Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Korikakumon.
- Blade Spam: Korikakumon's Avalanche Axes attack does this. The slashes are consecutive, but the hits all connect simultaneously.
- Braids of Barbarism: As Korikakumon. He uses them as Combat Tentacles.
- Breath Weapon: Kumamon's Crystal Breeze attack is an ice-based one. As Korikakumon, he uses what looks like a smaller-scale version of that ability to make one of Zephyrmon's attacks stronger when fighting IceDevimon.
- Brought Down to Normal: He loses his spirit to Grumblemon. Takuya gets it back for him later on.
- Crossdressing Voices
- Expy: Of T.K..
- Like all the other boys, his Beast Evolution. Kor-Ikkakumon, anyone?
- Korikakumon looks like a shell-less Zudomon with Ikkakumon's fur.
- Facial Markings: As Kumamon.
- Korikakumon also has markings on his forehead and under his eyes.
- Green Eyes: Notable in that Kumamon, his shirt, and his Digivice are all white with green trim.
- Image Song: "Say yes!" And boy, is it adorable.
- Improbable Weapon User: Once used a stick against the other 4 kids (Takuya, Koji, Zoe and J.P.).
- Japanese Sibling Terminology: Calls Takuya "Takuya-oniichan," and his own brother "oniichan."
- Kid-Appeal Character
- Lightning Bruiser: Korikakumon is a lot more nimble and acrobatic than any of the other Beast Spirits despite his size. He also does a couple of Flash Steps.
- Leitmotif: "Koori no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Ice"
- Nice Hat: Huge, floppy and orange.
- No Name Given: The dub gave his brother a name.
- Significant Anagram: Yutaka <-> Takuya, a parallel between Tommy's honorary brother and his real one. Yutaka is also an actual Japanese name.
- Pintsized Powerhouse: Kumamon is the smallest of the Human Spirits, but still fights well for his size. His Beast Spirit, on the other hand, isn't small (Zoe's is).
- The Smart Guy: He's probably the most rational member of the team and less prone to make stupid mistakes.
- Spam Attack: Korikakumon's Avalanche Axes attack involves slashing the target numerous times. The hits all seem to connect at once, though.
- Stolen Good, Returned Better: After being stolen by the Toucanmon, Tommy's D-Tector is sold to Datamon, who adds Tommy's Beast Spirit before returning it to him.
- Super Strength: As Korikakumon, he's enough to lift Petaldramon, who is much larger than normal at the time.
- Three Fingered Hands: As Kumamon.
- This Is Unforgivable!: In the ninth episode, he wakes up from a nightmare saying "I won't forgive you!" repeatedly as he attacks his own friends. Interestingly, it's worth noting that this was due to being manipulated by Bakumon into going against his own friends before Takuya realizes what is going on and goes to purify Bakumon.
- Vocal Dissonance: As Korikakumon, his voice sounds almost exactly like it does in human form except that it's more gravelly.
- V Sign: Does this in his Transformation Sequence, despite having three fingered hands. It's rather adorable.
- Weapon of Choice
- Your Size May Vary: As Korikakumon, he varied in size from about 2.5 to three times the height of the human characters (about ten to thirteen feet) to more than twenty feet in one instance.
J.P. Shibayama (Shibayama Junpei)
At the start of the series, J.P. shows some jealousy towards Takuya Kanbara, the main character of this series for being Tommy Himi's hero and being able to combine both of his Digimon forms into a more powerful form. He also shows feelings for Zoe Orimoto, the only female of the group. J.P. also seems to have a hidden fear of being alone - despite being constantly surrounded by people when he was in the real world, he felt that he had never really been anyone's real friend. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientBeetlemon, Warrior of Thunder.
His spirit evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Beetlemon (Blitzmon),a cyborg digimon. a large humanoid beetle with electric powers
- Beast Hybrid: MetalKabuterimon (Bolgmon), A cyborg digimon. A cross between a beetle-shaped mech and an army tank.
- Animal Motifs: Beetle.
- Balloon Belly: Happens to him in episode 17.
- Big Eater: He looks like it too but he's not nearly as big of an eater as Zoe.
- Big Fun: He's a bit overweight, but he's probably got the most playful personality of the crew.
- The Big Guy
- Butt Monkey
- Dogged Nice Guy: Towards Zoe. While he never really gains her affections, he does gain her respect and friendship.
- Expy: Of Joe and Izzy from Adventure.
- Likewise, his evolutions are expies of Kabuterimon and his evolutions. Bolgmon was renamed MetalKabuterimon in the dub to drive home the reference.
- Fear of Thunder: Ironically enough.
- Friendless Background
- Hammerspace: Where does he keep getting that chocolate?
- Hopeless Suitor: Has a long standing crush on Zoe.
- Image Song: "Spark!!"
- Leitmotif: "Ikazuchi no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Lightning"
- Love Bubbles
- Shock and Awe
- Shoulders of Doom: Beetlemon has them.
- The Smart Guy: In addition to being The Big Guy, he's also this. He's the smartest of the group, but he has some Genius Ditz tendencies.
- Sweet Tooth
- Tank Goodness: MetalKabuterimon.
- Tastes Like Friendship: Invoked. He offers chocolate to his friends and we later learn that this was how he got people to hang out with him in real life. Unfortunately he has no real friends and Volcamon uses this against him in the Sakkakumon mini-arc.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: In a possible attempt to make J.P. look more mature in the eyes of his companions, Zoe in particular, Latin American dubs often implied that Zoe was starting to like J.P. She even mentions a possibility to let him take her on a date someday; while in the original Japanese script (and english version) Zoe just goes up to respect J.P., it never goes past that.
Koichi Kimura (Kimura Kouichi)
Koji's twin brother, who was Separated at Birth
from Koji when they were born due to their parents' divorce. Prior to the start of the series, after finding of Koji's existence from his grandmother on her deathbed, he watched Koji in secret to find out more about him, but slowly developed loneliness from being unable to meet with his brother and resentment from the fact Koji's family was more well-off than him and his struggling mother. On the day Koji was summoned to the Digital World, Koichi followed him in secret but failed to follow him and fell down a set of stairs, after which his soul was taken away by Cherubimon and he was brainwashed and turned into Duskmon. He is eventually purified by Koji, receives the purified Spirits of Darkness and a new Digivice after gaining his resolve to fight alongside his brother, and joins the team. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientSphinxmon, Warrior of Darkness.
His spirit evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Lowemon'', a warrior digimon. He resembles a Large man wearing lion-themed black armor.
- Beast Hybrid: JagerLowemon (KaiserLeomon), A cyborg digimon. A robotic black lion that vaguely resembles SaberLeomon.
- Animal Motifs: Lion.
- Badass: Lowemon. Lets put it this way, he's basically stronger than either of the Chosen Children's Advance Hybrids, and thats only the human spirit...
- Badass Boast: As Lowemon when he defeats 2 Phantomon. “Confused evil souls, be buried in darkness and sleep. Let the shadows purify you. Fractal code, digitize!”
- Berserk Button: As the illusory Cherubimon and IceDevimon found out the hard way: if Koichi has any fighting capability and access to his Spirits, do not hurt Koji in front of him.
- Black Knight: Lowemon is a heroic one, in contrast to the more demonic-looking and violent Duskmon.
- Chest Blaster: Lowemon fires his Shadow Meteor attack from the decorative lion's head on his chest.
- Casting a Shadow
- Dark Is Not Evil: It's his freaking element.
- Dead All Along: After falling down a flight of stairs, Koichi's body became hospitalized and his soul became detached from his body, manifesting in the Koichi we see throughout the series. It's unclear whether Koichi was actually fully dead or whether he was just in a comatose state prior to Koji reviving him at the end of the series, though supplementary materials refer to Koichi as having been "brought back to life".
- An Astral Projection, Not a Ghost: Since the Digital World runs on Narnia Time, Koichi's body wasn't clinically dead during his time in the Digital World. The doctors were still trying to resuscitate him when the others returned to the human world.
- Death by Falling Over: Zigzagged.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: He was hospitalized/fell into a coma-like state after chasing after Koji on the day everyone first went to the digital world due to falling down a flight of stairs. Thus, he was a purely digital spirit himself the entire time he was with them. Once the final battle is over, the other chosen children return to the real world and rush to where Koichi is being kept. In a true Crowning Moment of Heartwarming moment Koji is able to revive and reunite with his brother with the others' help.
- Expy: More or less to Ken. His true evolved forms are a tribute to the Leomon line.
- Gratuitous German: Every one of his evolution forms.
- His attacks in both forms have German names in the Japanese version.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Both of his Digimon forms have gold as a secondary color.
- Heroic Sacrifice
- His Name Is...: Koichi's grandmother tells him about Koji on her deathbed.
- Iconic Outfit: One weirdly done by the merchandise; nearly all supplemental material depicts Koichi wearing his cap, which he hadn't actually worn for the majority of the anime proper (he'd only worn it during the flashbacks of following Koji around, and had lost the hat after falling down the stairs).
- Image Song: "Oreta Tsubasa de (With Broken Wings)".
- The Dub gives him "Darkness In My Heart", making him one of, if not the only, dub digimon characters with an Image song!.
- Leitmotif: "Yami no Theme", which translates to "Theme of Darkness"
- Long-Lost Relative
- More Than Mind Control: Cherubimon taunts Koichi by informing him that this is how the Corrupted Spirits of Darkness choose their owner; they wouldn't have taken Koichi had he already not been feeling emotions of anger and hatred towards Koji. Koichi responds that he accepts that, but that things have changed and he'll never lose to the darkness again. This leads to Koji's D-Tector giving Koichi his own Digivice and purified Spirits.
- Power Crystal: JagerLowemon's armor has several.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. His eyes glow red briefly during his Transformation Sequence and the decorative lion heads on Lowemon's armor have red eyes, but his actual eyes in both of his Digimon forms are more of a brownish color.
- The Sacred Darkness: Probably one of the best examples of the trope there is, even being able to provide an example for the "corrupt" and the "pure" form of darkness.
- Sacrificial Lion: His beast spirit (originally) is named KaiserLeomon, keeping with the series tradition.
- Shaping Your Attacks: JagerLowemon's Dark Master attack is a Foe-Tossing Charge that creates a battle aura in the shape of a lion.
- Satellite Character: Effectively this for Koji, as pretty much most of his characterization and interactions involve his relationship with Koji. Interestingly, his presence also turns Koji into this for Koichi for the rest of the series.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: See Koji.
- His Evolutions are direct (dark themed) parallels of Koji's as well. Stage one is an animal themed warrior, stage two is a robotic version of that animal, and stage three (All There in the Manual) is the first stage wearing the second stage as armor.
- Sixth Ranger: After his Heel-Face Turn.
- Spell My Name with an "S": his human spirit form: Is it spelled Lowemon? Loewemon? Loweemon? perhaps Löwemon? The Dub adds a whole new dimension to this by renaming his beast spirit as Jager Lowemon.
- Theme Twin Naming: Koichi and Koji, or "first light" and "second light" respectively.
- Transformation Sequence: Koichi is the only one of the main cast who lacks a Beast Spirit evolution sequence (all of his instances as JagerLowemon appear as slide evolutions from Lowemon). In addition, his normal spirit evolution sequence differs a bit in form from the others, probably due to having been animated later.
- Walking Spoiler: Talking about him in any way other than his Duskmon persona is effectively a spoiler for those who haven't gotten to the second half of the series - even his name is a dead giveaway he's Koji's brother.
Susanoomon is the combined form of all ten legendary warriors. He first appeared when Takuya and Koji, enraged by Lucemon killing Koichi, combined all twenty human and beast spirits to take down the latter's Falldown Mode. He appears again in the finale when the heroes combine their powers to take down Lucemon Satan Mode. His armor is a combination of parts from EmperorGreymon and MagnaGarurumon.
- All Your Powers Combined: To the Ten Legendary Warriors.
- Badass: By far the strongest protagonist Digimon in this series, and at this point in t e franchise so far.
- BFG: The Zero-ARMS: Orochi. It's bigger than he is, and he's around two stories tall.
- BFS: It breaks apart to reveal one.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: While the fight with Falldown mode was more even, once all the kids fuse at once , they give Satan mode one of these
- Expy: Of Omnimon, down to his gauntlets having a Greymon and Garurumon motif.
- Facial Markings: He has Agunimon's markings on his helmet.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: His secondary color scheme.
- Heavenly Blue: Half of his primary color scheme is this due to using parts of MagnaGarurumon's armor.
- Holy Hand Grenade: His design incorporates the Kanji for heaven/sky in much the same way that several of the Warriors use the Kanji for their elements, so this may actually be his element.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: His armor has several red parts from EmperorGreymon, but his design also cements this trope for Koji's blue motif.
- Light Is Good
- Mind Hive: For both the kids and the Warriors themselves.
- Morphic Resonance: He has Agunimon's Facial Markings and blue eyes and his design incorporates a red piece of MagnaGarurumon's armor in the same place that Agunimon had a belt buckle.
- One-Way Visor: He covers his eyes with the visor on his helmet while charging into Lucemon's Gehenna Sphere.
- Physical God: He's based on Susanoo from Japanese mythology and is as powerful as Lucemon if not more so.
- Shaping Your Attacks: His Heaven's Thunder attack calls down thunderbolts in the shape of dragons to restrain a target.
- Story-Breaker Power: He's by far the strongest character in Frontier, and arguably the strongest hero Digimon seen in the anime up to that point period.
- Sword Beam: His Celestial Blade attack projects one from the Zero-Arms: Orochi. It's miles long.
- The blade itself is even visible for a few frames after the beam disappears.
- Voice of the Legion: Downplayed. His voice is basically Takuya and Koji's voice actors speaking at the same time with no audio effects.
- Walking Spoiler: For the final episodes.
- Wave Motion Gun: His Celestial Blade attack is powerful enough to one-shot Lucemon Satan mode once it's separated from Lucemon Larva.
Bokomon & Neemon
One of the three Great Angels of the Digital World. After Seraphimon is killed by Mercurymon, he is turned into an egg which later hatches into Patamon.
One of the three great angels of the Digital World. She starts out the whole adventure, and a good portion of the first half of the series is spent finding her. Eventually it's revealed she's held prisoner by Cherubimon. He kills when she tries to stop him, but reincarnates as Salamon late in the series.
A rock Digimon, one of several of his kind, who has taken up archaeology. Brusk at first, he eventually helps the Chosen in their fight against Gigasmon and because of him they are able to find their first beast spirit, Kendo Garurumon
. He later helps in the fight against the Royal Knights.
His two evolutions are as follows:
- Rookie: Gotsumon, a rock digimon. His default form.
- Ultimate: Meteormon, an ore digimon. A larger, white version of Gotsumon
Voiced by: Yasuhiro Takato (JP), R. Martin Klein (EN)
A small, ugly gnome like creature. He was the first of the evil Warriors the children meet and also the first to fall. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientVolcamon, Warrior of Earth.
His two evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Grumblemon (Grottomon), an ogre digimon. His default form.
- Beast Hybrid: Gigasmon, a mineral digimon. He's supposed to be a certain type of mythological giant called a Gigas.
- The Brute: He's nowhere near as dumb as Arbormon, though. In fact while he isn't particularly smart, he's the most careful of all the corrupted Warriors.
- Combat Pragmatist: Grumblemon is easily the most careful of any of the villains. He's not afraid to use his Beast Spirit to turn the fight to his advantage, bring backup, hide underground or run away when he's clearly outmatched. He even immobilizes Koji once when the latter tries to use his own Beast Spirit.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Fights with him either end with him dishing these out or giving them in return, the former when facing the Legendary Warriors before they got their Beast Spirits, and the latter occurring afterwords.
- De-power: Loses his beast spirit to Takuya and doesn't get it back.
- Dishing Out Dirt
- Drop the Hammer
- Dual Wielding: He does this once.
- Dumb Muscle: Subverted. He looks like this at first, but outside of Mercurymon he's the only one of the evil Legendary Warriors that who displays ability to plan rather than charging into a fight.
- Facial Markings: Red ones.
- Fast Tunnelling: He can do this in both forms.
- Gag Nose/Sinister Schnoz: Both his forms have one.
- Heel-Face Turn: Post-death.
- Hero Killer: Was able to steal both the spirits of Ice and Wind from the heroes, leaving Zoe and Tommy powerless for a while.
- Hulk Speak: Especially when he slide evolves to Gigasmon.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: He'll run away if the battle's turned in his enemies' favor.
- Mook Maker: He can create an apparently endless supply of Golemmon, which he doesn't need his beast spirit for.
- Our Giants Are Bigger: Gigasmon is based off a Gigas, but he isn't really that big
- Our Gnomes Are Weirder: Grumblemon.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: With Ranamon, Arbormon and Mercurymon.
- Smug Snake: Doesn't take the Legendary Warriors for a threat, which ends up costing him his Beast Spirit.
- Spin Attack: Gigasmon's Quakmire Twister attack.
- Starter Villain: The first main enemy to be dispatched.
- Summon Magic: He has summoned Golemon during two battles. The first time, he only calls one. He has a small army of them with him the second time.
- Villain Forgot to Level Grind: Of a sort. When he first appeared, Gigasmon was easily able to dispatch all 5 of the legendary warriors, due to essentially being an Ultimate level fighting relatively inexperienced champions. But after the Digidestined all got their Beast Spirits, it quickly became apparent that he was the weakest Legendary Warrior, and is no match for either Kendo Garurumon or Burning Greymon.
- Villainous Breakdown: Has one when J.P. gets his beast spirit.
- Wake-Up Call Boss
A wooden cyborg digimon. He was one of the Evil Legendary Warriors that fought the Chosen Children. For a time he gave the children trouble with his beast spirit, but was eventually brought down via teamwork and destroyed by Duskmon
. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientTroiamon, Warrior of Wood.
His two evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Arbormon, a cyborg digimon. His default form.
- Beast Hybrid: Petaldramon, a plant digimon. A large living plant that resembles a dragon.
- Blow You Away: Petaldramon's Leaf Cyclone attack releases a gust of leaves from his nose.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Arbormon does this a lot at random moments. One moment, he's plotting to kill the warriors, and the next moment, he's reminding the little kids watching the show to brush their teeth before going to bed.
- Breath Weapon: Petaldramon's Leaf Cyclone is unusual in that he releases it through his nose.
- The Brute: Takes over as this after Grumblemon is defeated.
- Combat Tentacles: A variation. As Petaldramon, he can jab his tail into the ground and make roots shoot up around his enemies.
- De-power: He loses his Beast Spirit, resulting in Duskmon killing him.
- Dumb Muscle: He's dumber than Grumblemon (who is, at least, pretty careful), but is strong enough to go toe-to-toe with multiple Warriors. His final appearance has him giving all five of the heroes a hard battle as Petaldramon.
- Extendable Arms: As an attack.
- Green Thumb: The Legendary Warrior of Wood.
- Heel-Face Turn: Post-death.
- Laughably Evil: Zigzagged Trope, but overall he's the least competent of all the Dark Legendary Warriors. In one episode, he devotes all his nefarious energies to kidnapping a Burgermon chef and forcing him to make better hamburgers. In another, however, he cheerfully kills four Pipismon and absorbs their fractal codes.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: With Grumblemon, Ranamon and Mercurymon.
- Overly Long Tongue: He's shown to have one as Petaldramon during his final appearance as a villain, using it to grab things, including Zephyrmon.
- Roundhouse Kick: His main attack.
- Tongue Trauma: KendoGarurumon strikes at his tongue to free Zephyrmon.
- Verbal Tic: Nearly every sentence he says ends with "right?"
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Duskmon's reason for killing him off, stating he was useless after his Beast Spirit was taken.
A cute, mermaid-like digimon. She was one of the evil Legendary Warriors that the Chosen Children faced. She devloped an intense hatred of Zoe, borne out of jealousy. Her Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientMermaimon, Warrior of Water.
Her two evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Ranamon, a fairy digimon. Her default form.
- Beast Hybrid: Calmaramon, an aquatic digimon. An ugly woman sprouting out of an upside down squid.
An odd looking humanoid digimon with a mirror for a face and similar mirrors for wrist guards. He was ostensibly the leader of the evil Legendary Warriors, and he was certainly the most effective (outside of Duskmon). He seemed to hold a minor grudge against Takuya, but not to the extent that Ranamon held for Zoe. He supposedly represents steel, but that is a clear case of In Name Only
, as most of his attacks involve mirrors. His Spirits are the reincarnations of AncientWisetmon, Warrior of Steel.
His three evolutions are as follows:
- Human Hybrid: Mercurymon (Mercuremon), a mutant digimon. His default form.
- Beast Hybrid: Sakkakumon (Sephirotmon), a mutant digimon. A weird looking creature that resembles a living sephirot. Inside each of his spheres exists a different elemental based dimension.
- Mega ShadowSeraphimon (BlackSeraphimon), a fallen angel digimon. A demonic Seraphimon.
A mysterious evil Legendary Warrior and the most powerful servant of Cherubimon, holding the Spirits of Darkness. Extremely powerful, and nearly managed to obliterate the kids, forcing everyone to reconsider their strategy and causing Takuya to heavily consider bailing out
before he regains his resolve. Seems to have taken upon himself a rivalry with Koji, as Koji wields the spirits of Light, his direct opposite. His Spirits are the corrupted
reincarnations of AncientSphinxmon, Warrior of Darkness.
There's more to Duskmon than it seems, however: unlike the other evil Legendary Warriors and like the DigiDestined, he's actually the Digimon form of another human child: Koichi Kimura, Koji's twin brother (see entry above), who inadvertently followed Koji to the Digital World and ended up brainwashed to lose his memories as a human and fight for Cherubimon
. This causes problems for him, because his slowly surfacing memories instigated by Koji's presence
begin to eat away at his ability to fight, until he is finally dispatched and reverted to his human form
His evolutions are as follows:
- Corrupted Human Hybrid Duskmon, a demon man digimon. Resembles a large man wearing vaguely draconic skeletal armor covered in eyes.
- Corrupted Beast Hybrid Velgemon (Velgmon), a giant bird digimon. A giant monstrous bird with draconic features and a third eye.
- Beam Spam: Duskmon's Deadly Gaze attack fires nine beams, seven from the eyes on his armor and two from his hands.
- The Berserker: When Cherubimon gives him his Beast Spirit, he also manipulates Duskmon into a rage. This ends up backfiring as he cannot control Velgemon.
- Black Knight
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Retractable ones.
- Blond Guys Are Evil
- Brainwashed and Crazy
- Casting a Shadow
- Dark Is Evil
- Darth Vader Clone: Scary black armor and red sword? Check. The Dragon to another villain? Check. Related to one of the protagonists? Checkmate.
- Deadpan Snarker: Before meeting the heroes, he makes a few snipes at the other corrupted warriors.
- Disk One Nuke / Story-Breaker Power: He was playing around with a power equivalent to Advanced Hybrid level Digimon when the kids had barely gotten used to their Beast Spirits. And even when Koji and Takuya got their Advanced Hybrid forms, he still outclassed them as Velgemon to the point that they barely won by working together.
- The Dragon: To Cherubimon.
- Dual Wielding
- Even Evil Has Standards: Calls Mercurymon out on the latter's plan to betray Cherubimon and keep Seraphimon's data for himself, as well as his sitting back while having the remaining villains do the work.
- Evil Counterpart / Evil Twin: Starts out as this to Koji in more ways than one.
- Extra Eyes: Duskmon's armor, obviously. Velgemon also has a third eye in the middle of his head.
- Eye Beams: His Deadly Gaze attack. Doubles as a Beam Spam, though his last battle with BeoWulfmon also shows him firing a single one out of the eye on his chest at point-blank range.
- Velgemon's Dark Vortex attack fires a beam out of his central eye.
- Eyes Do Not Belong There: He has them all over his armor. They can look around independently of his normal eyes.
- Facial Markings: He has markings under each eye.
- Gratuitous German: His attacks have German names in the Japanese version, though Velgemon's don't.
- Image Song / Villain Song: The only villain for Frontier to get an image song: "Blader". He probably gets one because he ends up a lot more important as the series progresses.
- Knight of Cerebus: The show takes a more serious tone after he becomes an active threat.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: Delivers this to Koji in battle after his memories of Koji are restored but his hatred incited by Cherubimon.
- More Than Mind Control: While initially he was just fully brainwashed, by the time he gets his memories from Ophanimon back Cherubimon has to resort to this by stirring up Koichi's latent hatred and jealousy.
- Mind Probe: While fighting Koji inside Sakkakumon, he reads Koji's memories to determine what the connection is between them.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Until he starts wondering about his connection to Koji.
- Our Demons Are Different: Duskmon is a demon man Digimon, and he certainly looks the part.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad: Averted. He doesn't mess around like the other four corrupted Warriors and is much stronger than any of the other nine Warriors. He also has a very serious personality compared to the others and doesn't take part in their schemes.
- Rage Helm
- Red and Black and Evil All Over
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Both his regular eyes and the ones on his armor.
- Reforged into a Minion: Fortunately - or perhaps unfortunately - for Cherubimon, the wanderer who he picked up and brainwashed just happened to be Koji's twin brother...It's unusual in that we don't know Koichi exists until after the fact.
- Scary Impractical Armor: If he has hands under those huge gauntlets, he probably can't use them. That said, he can apparently see with the extra eyes.
- Super-Powered Evil Side: An inversion. While he is the evil version of Lowemon, and is in fact very strong, Lowemon himself is stronger still.
- Technicolor Blade: Red, in keeping with his color scheme.
- Toothy Bird: Velgemon.
- Unholy Nuke: Velgemon's Dark Obliteration attack. It will either cause the affected area to violently explode or simply cease to exist.
- The Worf Barrage: Nothing the heroes do when they first meet him can even scratch him. He even shrugs off a Combination Attack.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Delivers this to Arbormon after he loses his beast spirit.
One of the Three Great Angels of the Digital World. In times passed, he was a good digimon that helped keep the peace. But now he is a corrupted monster that will stop at nothing to take over the entire digital world. Late in the series, he's revived as Lopmon.
"We are supporters of his right to become this world's supreme ruler. We serve Lord Lucemon by collecting fractal code."
An effeminate Holy Knight digimon. Crusadermon was one of the two Royal Knights that were hired by Lucemon to destroy all of the digital world. Crusadermon was often matched off in a fight with MagnaGarurumon, and was the first of the two knights to start having trouble, being the weaker of the two.
Voiced by: Ryotaro Okiayu (JP), Melodee Spevack (EN)
"We have come to fulfill Lucemon's destiny as his emissaries of evil."
Dynasmon is a draconic Holy Knight Digimon. He was one of the two Royal Knights hired by Lucemon to gather all of the digital world's data. He usually squared off against EmperorGreymon, and being by far the stronger of the two knights, was the last to start having trouble with the Chosen Children. He was also the most devoted to Lucemon's cause. He is thematically based off of the Wyvern.
"I am your ordained ruler with absolute power over your very existence. You will serve me as you were born to do. You will give me my every desire, even yourself."
An angel digimon that once came down to the Digital World to bring peace to it due to a war between the beast and human type digimon. He eventually grew proud and fell off the narrow path and became a great evil that the Ten Legendary Warriors sealed away. He is eventually released by the Royal Knights and becomes the final boss of the show, so to speak.
His forms are as follows
- Rookie: Lucemon, his default form. A small cute looking boy with 12 angel wings.
- Ultimate: Chaos Mode (Falldown Mode), an adult Lucemon with dark armor; half of his wings have taken on a demonic look.
- Mega: Shadowlord Mode (Satan mode), a giant demonic dragon that holds the Gehenna (hell) sphere in its hands.
- Mega: Lucemon Larva, resembles a cross between a larva, a cocoon, and an embryo with twelve golden wings.
- A God Am I: A god complex is in line with his name theme (Lucemon and Satan mode).
- Anti-Villain: Averted. He thinks he's a Type III but he's really just a insane megalomaniac.
Lucemon Chaos Mode: Out of Chaos, I bring order.
- Badass Adorable: His initial form is a rare villainous example. Averted with his later forms, which are appropriately evil looking.
- Bad Boss: Agreeing to follow still doesn't guarantee you'll be safe from him.
- Beware My Stinger Tail: His larva form has a stinger. He can use it to fire a projectile attack or just stab his enemies with it. The latter attack rendered the Legendary Warriors unable to maintain their Susanoomon form afterword, not that it mattered.
- Big Bad
- Bigger Bad: Is initially only mentioned in the backstory that led to the current setting, so he played a key role without.
- Blond Guys Are Evil: Both in his normal form and in Falldown Mode.
- Breath Weapon: Satan Mode's Tide of Despair attack.
- Chaos Is Evil: He believes so, though his definition of chaos includes free will.
- Clipped Wing Angel: His larva form.
- The Corrupter: To Cherubimon. Bokomon also implies that he corrupted Crusadermon and Dynasmon.
- Creepy Child: His initial form.
- Drunk with Power: His backstory.
- Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: When angered by Crusadermon questioning him.
- Dystopia Justifies the Means: His plan is to enslave the Digital World and purge the Digimon of their free will. After entering Shadowlord Mode, he expands his plans to the human world.
- Evil Overlord: Especially in Chaos mode, where he is a Demon Lord type.
- The Evils of Free Will: He does everything but outright say this.
- Faceofan Angel Mindofa Demon: Almost literally in his initial form, angelic appearance, but underneath it he's Satan.
- Fallen Angel: Boy has he fallen.
- Famous Last Words: "NOOOOOO!!! It's impossible!!!"
- Flight: The wings aren't just for show.
- The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: "You must choose to follow me or be destroyed."
- God of Evil: Shadowlord mode and Lucemon Larva are described as Evil God type digimon, though his Chaos mode fits the mode to a T as well.
- Gold and White Are Divine: With this guy, though, it signifies a God of Evil.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Satan Mode has gold as a secondary color.
- Healing Factor: Due to having absorbed the Digital World's data, he can regenerate in Satan Mode in much the same way that Cherubimon was able to.
- Knight of Cerebus: The show gets more serious when he's revealed to be behind everything, and when he's freed, the humorous elements almost completely vanish.
- Icy Blue Eyes
- Knight Templar: Not acting For the Evulz, he actually considers himself bringing order to the digital world. But he's arguably the biggest killer in the franchise, as he nearly has the world destroyed so he can break free.
- Large Ham: His speech is much less subdued with each new form. He is hammier in Falldown Mode than in his regular form. His larva form has him yelling at the top of his voice when he's not being a Cold Ham.
- Light 'em Up: In his first form this is his mode of attack. He can still use it in Chaos mode, this time alongside darkness to great effect. He loses this ability upon reaching Shadowlord mode.
- Light Is Not Good/Dark Is Evil
- Lightning Bruiser: In his Chaos/Falldown mode.
- Made of Evil: Satan Mode and presumably his larva form are made of the data that the Digivices couldn't purify.
- The Man Behind the Man
- Manipulative Bastard
- Oh, Crap: In the Japanese version he starts to panic when Susanoomon breaks into his protective sphere that Satan Mode was carrying.
- He also has one when Susanoomon splits into Takuya and Koji to avoid his Yin-Yang Bomb.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Subverted. Destroying and absorbing the Digital World was just the method he used to collect the data he needed to remake it the way he wanted.
- One-Winged Angel: Well, technically he became a literal Twelve Winged Angel... then a twelve-winged demon, then a twelve-winged larva...
- Our Angels Are Different / Our Demons Are Different: A twofer example!
- Our Dragons Are Different: In his shadowlord mode, he's the dragon from Revelation and looks appropriately monstrous.
- Order Versus Chaos: He says this is his motivation, but he's really just arrogant.
- Person of Mass Destruction: We're talking DBZ level destruction here.
- Physical God: Even besides being able to easily destroy celestial bodies with his bare hands, supplemental material says his power in Chaos Mode rivals that of God (or at least the Digimon equivalent). Fridge Brilliance sets in when you realize that in The Bible God is described as a being of bright light and deep shadow.
- Pride: So much so, his Chaos/Falldown mode is one of the Seven Great Demon Lords and has Pride as his sin. He feels that he and he along has the right to determine the lives of other beings, and doesn't care who or what he needs to kill if they feel like standing in his way.
- Psychotic Smirk: His default expression.
- The Punishment: Subverted. He didn't suffer during his time in the Dark Area, but he's more powerful for having been imprisoned.
- Purple Is Powerful: Satan Mode.
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Falldown Mode's Paradise Lost Punch.
- Red Sky, Take Warning: Downplayed. The sky in the human world was already red due to it being around sunset. His attempt to enter the human world just caused the sky to look more menacing.
- Satan: His three forms represent three versions of him: His normal form is Satan's original angel form, his Falldown mode is Satan after falling, and his Satan Mode is as the Dragon of Revelation.
- Sealed Evil in a Can: For most of the series.
- Seven Deadly Sins: Satan Mode's Nihilism Maelstrom attack conjures symbols representing all seven.
- Shadow Archetype: To the kids.
- Smug Snake: Particularly in his Child form, the only emotion he usually shows is condescending, cold disdain towards everyone else.
- Spam Attack: Aside from actually stinging a target, his only attack in his larva form is shooting large numbers of projectiles from his stinger.
- Super Strength: Almost all digimon have some degree of this, but Lucemon takes this Up to Eleven. His Falldown mode was able to destroy three moons by piledriving two digimon into one of them.
- Story-Breaker Power: Easily the second strongest character on the show in his rookie form! And he still had two more transformations to make.
- Taking You with Me: Tries to do this to Susanoomon while in larva mode, even saying the trope name word-for-word. It doesn't work, instead causing the Warriors themselves to manifest and finish him off.
- Unholy Nuke: His Ultimate Sacrifice attack is one that uses light in addition to darkness.
- All of his attacks in Satan Mode, one of which visually invokes the Seven Deadly Sins.
- Ungrateful Bastard: After the Royal Knights free him, he decides to absorb their data into himself just to make himself more powerful.
- Utopia Justifies the Means: Has this opinion of his view of the digital world and in the finale attempts to take over the human world.
- Villainous Breakdown: Both times he finds himself out-matched by Susanoomon, especially the second time.
Lucemon Larva: You will not stand in the way of my utopia. Prepare for paradise!
- Wave Motion Gun: Satan Mode's Nihilism Maelstrom attack conjures symbols representing the Seven Deadly Sins and then fires beams from them powerful enough to punch through the walls of train station between worlds to what's left of the Digital World.
- Yin-Yang Bomb: As Falldown mode.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: When the Royal Knights are finally beaten, he takes data for himself to go to his Falldown mode, after they had freed him from his prison, no less.
Darcmon, Hippogriffomon, & Murmukusmon
The main antagonists of Island of Lost Digimon, they have been serving as the leaders of human and beast type Digimon for some period of time before the setting of the film. However, they have their own agendas in the conflict. They are the same individual, Murmukusmon, who seeks to revive Ornismon in order to conquer the Digital World
An ancient avian Digimon that was defeated and sealed away on the Lost Island by AncientGreymon and AncientGarurumon.
