!!Marcus Damon ''(Daimon Masaru)''
''"It's fighting time!"''/''"That's how a man lives!"''

->Voiced by: Creator/SoichiroHoshi (JP), Creator/QuintonFlynn (EN), Adrián Viador (Spain)

Marcus is a 14-year-old student who loves to fight and, in a way, considers himself to be an "ultimate fighter" . He lives with his mother Sarah and younger sister Kristy. Marcus meets and fights Agumon in the first episode of the series. When the fight ends in a draw, Agumon agrees to become his partner. Soon afterward, he's recruited as a member of DATS. Marcus is one of the few shown to fight Digimon by himself, though he still counts on Agumon's help to fight the stronger opponents. Even though others can evoke their DNA charges by themselves, Marcus must connect a punch on an enemy to do so, subsequently using it to digivolve Agumon.

[[IChooseToStay After the final battle he decides to stay in the digital world to help keep Digimon in-line.]]

* AwesomeMccoolname
* BeyondTheImpossible: He breaks an unbreakable shield with his bare fist.
* BicepPolishingGesture: Done as early as episode 6.
* BigBrotherInstinct: His greatest fear is not being able to rescue his sister. He also develops this with Keenan, offering to let him live in his house.
* BigEater: Best exemplified in episode 22, where his rice bowl towers everyone else's and then he asks for additional rice several scenes later.
* TheBigGuy: His primary strategy is to get in close and punch the shit out of the enemy. In fact, doing so is the only way he can generate a DNA charge to digivolve Agumon.
* BookDumb: Though he lacks Tohma's intelligence, Masaru is smarter than he may seem.
* CatchPhrase: "It's fighting time!" in the dub.
** "That's how a man lives!" in the original.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: The strength of Masaru's punches things scales with the drama of the series, often improbably so.
* CrossdressingVoices: Notably ''averts'' this, being the only Digimon lead protagonist to (in the Japanese versions) have never been voiced by a female voice actress outside of flashback.
* DeadSidekick: Agumon gets a DisneyDeath at some point. He gets better, despite Marcus being told he'd lose his memory.
* {{Delinquents}}: A banchou in the original.
%%* {{Determinator}}
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: His trademark; nearly every time Agumon needs to digivolve will result in this. And a literal example, as he often literally punches them out.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric
* GogglesDoNothing: It is such a recognizable image in this franchise that it should be noted that he ''[[AvertedTrope averts]]'' this.
%%* GreenEyes
%%* TheHero
* HotBlooded: Extremely. If he didn't have his partner, he'd probably just keep punching his enemies until he got himself killed.
* IChooseToStay: After the final battle he decides to stay in the digital world to help keep Digimon in-line.
* IdiotHero: Okay, he's not an idiot per se, but he ''never'' thinks things through.
* ImageSong: ''Beater!'' and ''Yume No Kakera''
%%* TheMcCoy
* ManlyTears:
-->'''[=Agumon=]''': Aniki, are you crying?
-->'''[=Masaru=]''': No! You idiot! These are sweat drops from my heart!
* MeaningfulName: Can be read as "daimondai," which sounds like "big problem."
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Despite his YoungerThanHeLooks appearance and penchant for getting into physical fights he theoretically shouldn't be able to win and actually ''winning'' them, Marcus is shown to be rather skinny, and coupled with his height, can come off as positively ''lanky'' in the right/wrong clothes (like his school uniform, which looks too big for him). This is a trait he shares with his father. [[spoiler:The DistantFinale that takes place five years later, however, does show him sporting a bit of muscle.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Tohma's blue. Tohma is a brilliant tactician who's a trained fighter and keeps a calm head. Masaru charges in a hits things until they stop being a problem.
* RookieRedRanger: While he is the Red Ranger equivalent for a Digimon Series, he is not the leader of DATS, nor is he the leader of his small group.
* TrueCompanions: Agumon, later with Tohma.
* UnskilledButStrong: Strong enough to punch out digimon many times his size, despite lacking the formal training that Tohma has.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Sure, he looks more like his age in a school uniform... but out of it, it's hard to believe he's only 14.

!!Thomas H. Norstein ''(Tohma H. Norstein)''


->Voiced by: Creator/HirofumiNojima (JP), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN), Mona Marshall (EN, young) Aitor González (Spain)

Thomas is a 14-year-old boy genius who graduated from the Stockholm Royal University of Science at the age of 13. His abilities are considered élite, even within DATS. He bases his operations on data and theoretical principles, and as such his personality clashes with Marcus'. His mother is Japanese and his father is a prominent Austrian aristocrat named Franz Norstein. Franz and Thomas's mother met while she was an exchange student in Austria, and Thomas lived with his mother in Japan until she died. He was taken back to Austria. He also has a younger sister, Relena, who suffers from a strange disease. It is never shown who Relena's mother is, but she died of complications during childbirth. While Thomas does not particularly care for his cold father, he does love his sister very much and does whatever he can to protect her. Calm and shrewd, he is the exact opposite of Marcus and sees him as a rival. He has an elitist attitude but he gets emotional when thinking of his mother, who died years ago when he was young.

* AttackPatternAlpha: He has lots of them with Gaomon and his evolutions. The attack patterns even work for the newly-acquired [=MirageGaogamon=] Burst Mode, as demonstrated in episode 42.
* BadassBaritone: Has one (for his age, anyway- he's only 14) in the English dub, courtesy of Creator/CrispinFreeman.
* BadassBookworm: He's a genius, but he's also Marcus's equal in a fight. Well it's kind of the other way around, everyone at DATS were impressed that Marcus ''tied'' with him and said he's beaten Olympic level fighters before.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards his [[IllGirl half-sister, Relena]]
* ButNotTooForeign: Half-Austrian
%%* CallingTheOldManOut
* CrazyPrepared: In one of the early episodes, Masaru accidentally manages to wipe out a portion, if not all of DATS' database. Conveniently enough, Thomas just happens to have the entire database backed up on a flash-drive. He even says "I anticipated that something like this would happen, so I took a back-up".
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:He only did so in order to remove the bomb that was placed on Relena's neck.]]
* FoeRomanceSubtext: With Nanami, and how.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler: His "crush" on Marcus's mother and sister hints at his issues with his own deceased mother and IllGirl little sister. Gaomon also mentions in the first quarter of the series that Thomas is a licensed doctor--in a later episode, Thomas reveals that he's been studying medicine at such an accelerated rate specifically to cure his sister's illness.]]
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic
* HeroicBastard: [[spoiler:His parents met when his mother was an exchange student studying in Austria. And judging by his grandmother's words, they had him without her consent.]]
* ImageSong: "Cool Running"
* ImprobableAge: He's a 14 year old TeenGenius who's already graduated from college.
%%* TheLancer
%%* ManipulativeBastard
* MissingMom: His mother is dead, having been hit by a truck when he was younger.
* MysteriousMiddleInitial: We never do find out what the "H" stands for...
* NakedOnArrival: In the Japanese version, he's first formally introduced [[ShowerScene in the shower]]. [[{{Fanservice}} You're welcome, ladies]].
* {{Omniglot}}: Knows 170 languages from around the world, according to Gaomon.
* PunchCatch: Had a few with Masaru.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Masaru' red. Tohma is a brilliant tactician who's a trained fighter and keeps a calm head. Masaru charges in a hits things until they stop being a problem.
%%* TheSmartGuy
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His Japanese name. Is it "Touma", "Tohma", "Toma", or "Tooma"? The dub settled with "Thomas".
%%* TheSpock
* TeenGenius: As mentioned, he graduated from Stockholm Royal University of Science at the age of 13
%%* WelcomeBackTraitor
%%* WiseBeyondTheirYears
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's supposed to be 14 years old, but he looks at least 4 years older than his designated age.

!!Yoshino "Yoshi" Fujieda
''[[CatchPhrase "This is the worst!"]]''


->Voiced by: Yui Aragaki (JP), Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey (EN), Gema Carballedo (Spain)

At eighteen years of age, she is the oldest member of the group, compared to Marcus Damon who is fourteen years old and Thomas H. Norstein who is roughly the same age. Yoshino is independent and sees herself as an older sister figure to her two teammates. Despite her mature demeanor, she hides a terrible burden from her childhood and because of it, she has difficulty believing in her ability to do anything. When she was younger, Yoshino dealt with a severe inferiority complex that stemmed from being unable to be as good as her sisters at anything (the most noteworthy incident was a piano recital). As a result, years later, she still is secretly worried about being useless to anyone. Lalamon had been aware of her suffering for some time and helped her to overcome it. The fact became apparent when she started to feel she was useless to Marcus and Thomas since her Digimon was easily beaten in every single battle they took part in, but she eventually gained her own confidence, which allowed Lalamon to warp digivolve to Lilamon.

* CatchPhrase: "This is the worst!" is a recurring phrase Yoshino says. It's also a case of ThrowItIn -- the catchphrase originated from Mari Yaguchi from Music/HelloProject, and after Ryouta Yamaguchi heard Yoshino's voice actress, Yui Aragaki, repeat it several times, he decided to include it in the show.
* CoolBigSis: She ''thinks'' she's this, but Lalamon disagrees.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Her eyes are the same reddish-brown color as her hair.
* DistressedDamsel: Despite having experience as a field operator, Yoshino is usually the one who gets trapped or falls first during missions, making her more of a FauxActionGirl. Examples include losing her debut fight, and being the only one who gets sick during the mission in the Digital World. By the second arc arrives, she TookALevelInBadass however.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Though in her defense, when she actually drives like crazy, the car was chased by attacking Digimon or government's officials.
* FairCop: Becomes one in the epilogue.
* FieryRedhead: Slowly turns into one during the course of the series. In Kudamon's words, she's becoming more and more like Marcus on each passing days.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Phlegmatic & Leukine.
* ImageSong: Interestingly averted for Yoshino, as she is the only main character who never received an image song. This might be due to contract issues with Yui Aragaki, or because she was busy filming ''Waruboro'' and ''Tokyo Serendipity'' at the time.
* IncrediblyObviousTail: She makes no effort to hide that she is following Marcus and Agumon at first.
%%* TheKirk
* OlderThanTheyLook: Because she's shorter than Marcus and Thomas, one can be forgiven for assuming that she's on the same age as those two. She's actually four years older than them.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Compared to super-strong Marcus, TeenGenius Thomas, and WildChild Keenan, Yoshi comes off as a rather ordinary person. Her realizing that there are some things that only she can do that the others cannot is pivotal to her CharacterDevelopment and Sunflowmon's evolution to Lilamon.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Of the human half of the team.
* TeamMom: In episode 43, where she ''tries'' to be one for the stranded baby Digimons in the Damon household.
* ThrowABarrelAtIt: Does so in episode 32, where she attacks a Gizumon-XT that was peeking through the window by throwing a barrel at it.

!!Keenan Crier ''(Noguchi Ikuto)''


->Voiced by: Creator/RieKugimiya (JP), Creator/BrianneSiddall (EN), Creator/PepaAgudo (Spain)

As opposed to the other members of DATS, Keenan did not live in the human world, nor did he originally have a particular liking for it. Though originally born on Earth to the DATS scientists Kevin and Michelle Krier (Kenji and Misuzu Noguchi), he was accidentally transported to the Digital World as an infant. In the Digital World, he was raised by a Frigimon, who acted a a mother figure to him. Falcomon was raised alongside him like a brother. Following her death, he was raised by Merukimon, who became a father figure to him. He believes in defending the peace of the Digital World, and also believed that humans were nothing but a threat to it. Despite his young age, Keenan has great fighting skill (many of his moves mirror the ninja-like aspects of Falcomon). He wields a boomerang, and wears a cape and a necklace adorned with feathers, and also has facepaint.
* AndThisIsFor: After [[spoiler:Merukimon is killed by Kurata, he says this in regards to him before making Falcomon warp digivolve to Crowmon and [[CurbstompBattle curbstomp]] the Gizumon XT who killed Merukimon.]]
* BattleBoomerang: Has two, with the second being the first's replacement after it got smashed into data by Marcus.
* BoomerangBigot: How appropriate, though it does not last too long once he realizes what he is, it still lasts long enough to qualify for this trope.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: Lets not forget that this is a ten year old kid who, in most episodes is pulling stunts of strength and agility that would turn an Olympic Athlete green with envy. The best representation of this is the episode where he finally meets his parents and he carries his own mother out of their possessed house, making multi-story jumps the entire time. Once again, to reiterate, this kid is TEN YEARS OLD!
* CuteBruiser: A little boy who is A LOT stronger than he looks.
%%* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu
* EtTuBrute: Not all Digimon were as loyal to him as he was to them.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine
* HeelFaceTurn: A less extreme case compared to the others in Digimon franchise, since he never did any villainous acts beyond his fights against Marcus. His hatred towards humanity was what keeping him from fully turning in, until Merukimon conviced him otherwise in episode 25.
* HulkSpeak: Strangely enough, even though Digimon usually speak normally, so being raised by them really shouldn't have affected his speech pattern. He gets better by the end of the show.
* LastNameBasis: In the localized version of ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldDataSquad'' and ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldDawnDusk'', where everyone calls him "Crier".
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Keenan vs. other humans, until...
%%* LivingMacGuffin: From episodes 19 to 22, everyone wants to either keep him safe or let him die.
* MissingMom: His foster mother was murdered by Akihiro Kurata.
%%* {{Ninja}}
* ObliviousAdoption: He was raised by a Frigimon but never seemed to make the connection considering he's not himself a digimon.
* RaisedByWolves: He was raised by digimon.
* ShipTease: With Kristy.
* SixthRanger: He's the last member to join DATS and his partner is the only one who can achieve Burst Mode like the other three protagonists.
* WeaponOfChoice: His boomerang he's rarely seen without.
* WouldHitAGirl: He almost succeeded on attacking a defenseless, bed-ridden Yoshi in episode 16. Thankfully, Marcus arrived just in time.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: His is dark blue.

!!Miki Kurosaki & Megumi Shirakawa


->Miki voiced by: Ai Nagano (JP), Creator/KateHiggins (EN), Rosa Vivas (Spain)
->Megumi voiced by: Yukiko Hanioka (JP), Creator/StephanieSheh (EN), Creator/CarolinaTak (Spain)

The computer operators at DATS, who generally give data on the digimon the team is facing. After the final battle, they become police officers.
* BridgeBunnies: Their job in DATS.
* CallingYourAttacks: The girls have to call the attacks for their [=PawnChessmon=], who are mute.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Amusingly subverted in their second wardrobe. Megumi wears mostly black even though her [=PawnChessmon=] is white, and the reverse applies to Miki as well. The two even can use each other's Digivices, which are colored in inverse of their respective surnames.
* {{Expy}}: Of Reika and Megumi of ''[[Anime/DigimonTamers Tamers]]'', to the point of Reika and Miki sharing a voice actress (Ai Nagano) and the other two sharing a first name (Megumi).
* LetsGetDangerous: Whenever they get off the bridge.
%%* LovelyAngels
* MeaningfulName: Their names are ColorCodedForYourConvenience. The "kuro" in "Kurosaki" means "black," while the "shira" in "Shirakawa" means "white." Bet you can guess which [=PawnChessmon=] belongs to which bunny now!
* ShoutOut: To ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure''.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki: Their uniform gives them Grade A.

!!Richard Sampson ''(Satsuma Rentarou)''


The Commander of DATS Japan, giving the three main members their orders. He also worked with Yushima as a private investigator, which led to them joining the expedition to the digital world and meeting Spencer Damon.

->Voiced by: Creator/TaitenKusunoki (JP), Creator/JamiesonPrice (EN), Ángel Amorós (Spain)
%%* BadassLongcoat
* BadassBaritone: Commanding and ''damn'' scary when he raises his voice. Yoshino (and merchandise) even mention his nickname as "Oni no Ikkatsu". (lit. 'The Demon's Thunderous Roar')
* TheCaptain: The leader of DATS.
* CoolShades: Never once takes them off. Ever. [[SunglassesAtNight Not even in the dark.]]
** Lampshaded further when you view his model from the VideoGame/DigimonMasters Online MMORPG: If you look behind his shades, his eyes are '''closed'''!
* DaChief: The team (and us viewers) found out the hard way how loud he is when you screw up royally. Used for comedic effect in Episode 20.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric
* HeroicSacrifice: At least in intent, though it didn't result in his death. He was out of the way for quite a while, though.
* LetsGetDangerous: He follows the BioHybrids into the Digital Gate and has Kudamon jump straight to the Ultimate Level so as to buy the others time to get away, with them able to keep the Hybrids in a stalemate despite being outnumbered.
* TheStoic: Even when issuing orders, very little emotion besides authority drips out.
%%* TeamDad

!!Homer Yushima ''(Yushima Hiroshi)''


A mysterious old man who gave Marcus his Digivice and some advice several times throughout the series. Eventually revealed to be the chief officer of DATS and the partner of Kamemon, as well as a member of the first expedition to the Digital World. He is, to date, the oldest human in a Digimon series to own a Digivice of some kind and have a Digimon partner.

->Voiced by: [[Creator/YuuichiNagashima Cho]] (JP), Creator/KirkThornton (EN), Rafael Calvo (Spain)
* CoolOldGuy: While he is the Chief Officer, he's perfectly fine with just chilling and fishing, while also handing out Digivices to those like Marcus that catch his eye.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With the rest of the cast, though he develops one with Relena later on.
%%* LetsGetDangerous
* StealthMentor: To Marcus during the first arc of the series.

!!Spencer Damon ''(Daimon Suguru)''


->Voiced by: Creator/HozumiGouda (JP), Creator/JeffNimoy (EN), Creator/JoseMariaCarrero (Spain)

The legacy of Dr. Spencer Damon is felt throughout the series, even though he does not appear in it personally at first. He is Marcus's father, and a member of the expedition to the Digital World. When the group was forced to escape back to the human world, he stayed behind to make sure they could escape, and for a while, it was unknown what happened to him. That is, until the answers were revealed by the Digimon called Mercurimon. Spencer had remained back in the Digital World in order to seek out the "god" of the Digital World named King Drasil. Before that, however, he created the Digivice, and sent the data for it to the human world along with Kudamon and Kamemon. After making a deal with Mercurimon to preserve the peace of both worlds, he departed.

Over time, he was joined in his search by [=BanchoLeomon=] until they found King Drasil, but things went wrong and by the time Marcus and gang confronted King Drasil, it used Spencer's soulless body as its own. The soul of Spencer himself was taken in by [=BanchouLeomon=] at the last second when the Royal Knights advanced on them. However, thanks to his friend's sacrifice, Spencer was restored and King Drasil was purged from his body. Spencer returns to his family at the end of the last episode.
* BadassNormal: He was recruited into the original Digital World exploration team due to his scientific knowledge, and he was the original designer of [[AmplifierArtifact the Digivice]]. He survived in the Digital World with [[BareFistedMonk his bare hands]] and [[BattleAura the power of Digisoul/DNA charge]].
* BadassBookworm: For reasons stated above. He also contended with badass Banchou Leomon, arguably one of the '''MOST''' Badass Digimon, ''EVER''.
* DemonicPossession: His body was taken by Yggdrasil/King Drasil sometime before his reunion with his son.
* DisappearedDad: He's this to Masaru.
* FamedInStory: In the Digital world, Spenser Damon is nothing short of legendary; the mere mention of his name is enough to curry favor from the residents of the sacred city, as Marcus and the others found out.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric.
* GeniusBruiser: He's as intelligent as he is strong. And he is VERY strong.
* HotBlooded: It runs in the family, though Suguru isn't above resolving things peacefully before the punching starts. To get the whole point across, he beat [=SaberLeomon=] with his bare hands when the teams Digimon couldn't even scratch him.
* MeaningfulName: 大門 (Dai Mon means "Great Gate" in Japanese, and he was a member of the first Digital World expedition.)
* MysteriousParent: TO Masaru.
* ScienceHero: While his [[BadassNormal incredible strength]] served him well during his exploits in the Digital World, it's ultimately his scientific inventions that end up aiding the heroes the most during their journey.

!! Hashima

->Voiced by: Creator/SatoshiTsuruoka (JP), Luis Vicente Ivars (Spain)

A rather incompetent representative of the Confidentiality Ministry who oversees DATS.
* ArrestedForHeroism: Tries and fails to arrest Sampson for treason after the heroes return from the Digital World.
* HeadInTheSandManagement: He gives Kurata everything he asks for.
* TheMasquerade: He's supposed to make sure that DATS maintains it and threatens to disband them after Merukimon shows up.
* OhCrap: When Kurata inevitably betrays him.

!!Yuma Kagura

A character exclusive to the [=PS2=] game Digimon World: Data Squad (''Digimon Savers: Another Mission''). She's Tsukasa's younger sister. She doesn't have any friends because she's friends with Digimon and they call her "monster girl". Yuma was one of the children kidnapped to power up the Demon Lords. Later on, she joins the team with her partner Renamon.

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DistressedDamsel: At first.
* SixthRanger

!!Tsukasa Kagura

A character exclusive to the [=PS2=] game. He's a researcher working for DATS and the best specialist in the Dark Area. Tsukasa is Yuma's older brother. He also graduated at the same university as Tohma.

* BridgeBunnies: Male example.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* [[spoiler:EvilLaugh: Breaks into one when assuming being the BigBad.]]

* {{Foreshadowing}}: ''The best specialist regarding the Dark Area''.
* {{Megane}}

[[folder:Partner Digimon]]


->Voiced by: Creator/TaikiMatsuno (JP), Creator/BrianBeacock (EN), Rafael Calvo (Spain)

Agumon adores his partner Marcus, and considers himself to be "Marcus's employee". He even refers to Marcus as his Boss (though in the original Japanese he is referred to as aniki which is slang for bro... and what members of the Yakuza use to refer to their boss.) In the first episode, he is referred to by the code-name of Raptor-1 by DATS.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''In-Training''': Koromon, a round, pink mon, with long ears, red eyes, and sharp teeth. Blows bubbles.
** '''Rookie''': Agumon, his default form. Note that he is different from his Anime/DigimonAdventure counterpart due to a pair of red wristbands on his hands and is considerably large.

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Arm bands
* BigEater: A common trait on this show but Agumon is the biggest eater of them all.
* BishonenLine: [=ShineGreymon=], though in an odd example of this trope, it's also by far his largest form.
** A better example would be Agumon's pseudo-Burst Mode during the final battle with Yggdrasil.

* ChestBlaster: One of [=RizeGreymon's=] weapons.
* {{Cyborg}}: Rize

* FierySalamander: Well, it ''is'' Agumon.
* HornAttack: Horn Impulse
* IncendiaryExponent: [=ShineGreymon=] Burst Mode full stop.
* InformedAbility: The Geo Grey Sword is supposed to be a powerful weapon when [=ShineGreymon=] first whips it out to defeat Bio Darkdramon. After that, it's sole purpose is to be pulled out, prove completely useless against the MonsterOfTheWeek and then tossed aside so that [=ShineGreymon=]'s Burst Mode can do the real fighting.
* LightEmUp: [=ShineGreymon=]'s Glorious Burst creates a bright ball of flame.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Mon]]: Not quite sane, incredibly hot-blooded, but has moments in the dub where he tries to talk Marcus out of his Hot-Blooded antics, mainly because of the risk to him. He also tried to calm down Marcus during the physical examinations held in the beginning of episode 19.

''"Sir, yes Sir!"''

Incredibly loyal to Thomas, Gaomon is the strong and quiet type, though he talks more in later episodes. He tends to blush when complimented. He almost always addresses Thomas as "Sir". He tends to be sarcastic towards Agumon.

** '''Ultimate''': [=Lilamon=]. A pink and green pixie with flowers for her hands and feet.
** '''Mega''': [=Rosemon=]. A red-clad female warrior wielding a vine whip and rapier.
*** '''Burst Mode''': [=Rosemon=] [[PaletteSwap turns white]] and gains a pink rosary of floating jewels.

* ArmCannon: Marvel Shot and Lila shower are organic versions
* [[BishonenLine Bishojo Line]]: As you may have guessed.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Lilamon can make one
* BulletSeed: Seed blast, actually they are nuts.
* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Forbidden Temptation's description in the Digimon dictionary would have you believe it is just a shower of rose petals but they just be very numerous and highly concentrated because it looks like a {{Kamehamehadoken}} and can beat back flames.
* {{Expy}}: to Palmon and her Digivolution line.
* EyelessFace: Rosemon
* {{Fanservice}}: Rosemon
* FauxActionGirl: Subverted, she gets better as Yoshino does. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the "Tokuten Eizou" special (essentially a ClipShow with commentary from the main three Digimon), with both Agumon and Gaomon noting that Lalamon was basically useless before she became Lilamon.
* {{Gainaxing}}: Rosemon, with more fanservice than the rest of the series ''combined''.
* GratuitousFrench: Rosemon Burst Mode's attacks are in French in the Japanese version. For example, her main attack was "Aguichant Levres" (Seductive Lips), which was changed into "Kiss of Breath" in the English version.
* GreenThumb
* HelicopterBlender: But Lalamon is only a rookie so it is not too dangerous.
* InstantSedation: "Sing A Song"
* KissOfDeath: Burst Mode's "Kiss of Breath"
* LadyOfWar: Rosemon only. She's usually pretty silly, otherwise.
* MsFanservice: As Rosemon, not only her transformation shows her naked, but also her attack Forbidden Temptation and her breasts have a tendency to "jump" when she fights.
* PlantAliens
* ThePowerOfTheSun: Sunshine Beam.
* ShipperOnDeck: In episode 32 she as Rosemon, tries to get Yoshino to go on a date with Ivan to the mall.
* ShoutOut[=/=]{{Expy}}: Sunflowmon resembles the Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Sunflora, astonishingly enough, but what sells it is that her attack is Sunshine Beam. Which is pretty similar to ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''[==]'s ''Solar''beam.
** Her evolution line is a parallel to the Palmon line, with Palmon and Togemon switching places (chubby plant-flower-fairy instead of flower-chubby plant-fairy). Unsurprising as both reach the same Mega form.
** And additional shout out occurs in the twenty-minute "movie" in which Lalamon shows that she knows kung-fu and proceeds to beat up mooks while doing Bruce Lee imitations and wielding nun-chucks made out of sausages.
** Burst mode has a shout out to Rose Gundam's "rose bits".
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Of the Digimon half of the team.
* WhipItGood: As Rosemon.

** Yatagaramon managed to destroy a Gizumon XT, which shrugged off attacks from the other three Perfects ''and'' Merukimon.

%%* LightEmUp: Crowmon's Savage Emperor
* MadeOfIron: Crowmon resists the Gizumon attacks, perhaps explained by the Digimon dictionary which would have you believe its attacks work in a similar manner, which could explain its tolerance too them.
%%* {{Ninja}}: Is it any wonder he and Keenan recruit Ninjamon later on?
%%* PollyWantsAMicrophone
%%* RazorWings: Ravemon has one, then two in burst mode.
* RightHandOfDoom: Inversion, Ravemon's small wing is the more dangerous one. The size is reversed this way on purpose to throw off anyone who he may have to fight.

!!Sarah Damon ''(Daimon Sayuri)''


->Voiced by: Creator/MarikoKouda (JP), Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn (EN), Creator/PepaAgudo (Spain)

Sarah is Marcus and Kristy's mother, as well as Spencer Damon's wife. While she first appeared, she reacted somewhat casually to Agumon's presence, it was eventually revealed that she had been knowledgeable of the existence of Digimon for some time. Though kind and supportive of her son, she is somewhat fearful when he voiced that he had to go to the Digital World and stop the machinations of Kurata. Her memories of the family's time with Agumon were temporarily erased, but that seems to have been reversed. She later appears to give the former DATS team dinner, and is very dumbfounded when meeting [=BanchoLeomon=] for the first time.
* MotherlySidePlait: [[spoiler:One of the few survivors of this trope.]]
* OpenMindedParent: Doesn't react particularly badly to the revelation of her son bringing home an extradimensional reptile. Of course, there's a reason for that...
* StacysMom: So much that Thomas gets a crush on her. Marcus wasn't impressed.
* SupremeChef: Everyone often gushes at how delicious her cookings are.
* TeamMom: Very friendly to the entire DATS team, and even hosts a dinner for them!

!!Kristy Damon ''(Daimon Chika)''


->Voiced by: Creator/KokoroKikuchi (JP), Creator/MelissaFahn (EN), Marta Méndez (Spain)

Kristy is Marcus's sister. She was immediately taken with and friendly towards Marcus's rival and friend Thomas, and it was her wish that he escort her and her mother on her birthday. Later, Kristy befriended a newly hatched Digimon who eventually became Biyomon, but this relationship ended when Biyomon was struck down, and later driven to madness after being revived. When her friend was finally defeated, Kristy was happy to know her friend no longer had to suffer. He comes later back as her partner.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling
* BadassAdorable: She's got enough upper body strength to toss both [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower Keenan]] and Falcomon in the bathtub.
* GamerChick: Surprisingly skilled too, if Thomas' seventeen losses are any indication.
* GirlishPigtails: That she kept all the way to her middle school years as shown in the TimeSkip.
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: Fails one of these with Aquilamon & Garudamon.
* LittleMissBadass: Par for the course with preteen Tamers. In episode 44, she turns [[Manga/DragonBallZ Super Saiyan]], which is kind of a first for this franchise, though.
* NightmareFetishist: A mild case; during a trip to an amusement park, [[CheerfulChild she]] was outright overjoyed at a sight that had [[GoodParents Sarah]] unnerved and [[GeniusBruiser Thomas]] outright horrified. What sight? [[TakeOurWordForIt The face was never shown]] but it appeared to be a fairly standard Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl.
%%* OddNameOut: Her name, when written in kanji, is not composed of symmetrical kanjis, unlike others in her family.
* ShipTease: With Keenan
* StrongFamilyResemblance: A mini version of her mother.

!!Biyomon (''Piyomon'')

* BadassAdorable: Subverted; guess how the Merukimon-VS-Biyomon fight unfolds.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Though, his non-brainwashed state isn't exactly clever either.
* HonorBeforeReason: A big part of his character and the cause of his initial death.
* PlayingWithFire: As Garudamon.
%%* PollyWantsAMicrophone
%%* ThePromise
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: As Puwamon, his baby form, which can best be described as a little ball of feathers with big PuppyDogEyes.
%%* SenselessSacrifice

!!Relena Norstein

Thomas' sickly half-sister who is brought to Japan to undergo an emergency medication.
* CutenessProximity: How she reacts on Gaomon during their first meeting.
* FusionDance: Kurata offered to cure her by infusing her with a Digimon, which would essentially turn her into another Bio-Hybrid. [[spoiler:Luckily, Thomas managed to stop it for ever happening.]]
* IHaveYourDaughter: Is a victim of this during the late stretch of Kurata arc, because her father made a DealWithTheDevil with the mad scientist.
%%* IllGirl
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Later on, she develops one with Yushima.
* MissingMom: Who was later revealed to suffer DeathByChildbirth.
* StrappedToABomb: [[spoiler:The chocker that she's wearing when she was first introduced is revealed to be a bomb made by Kurata. However, Touma was able to remove and destroy it before her surgery started.]]

!!Merukimon ''(Mercurymon)''

One of the Olympus XII and ruler of the Infinite Ice Ridge. He has acted as a father figure for Keenan.

->'''Voiced by:''' Kosei Hirota (JP), Creator/RichardEpcar (EN)
* AntiVillain: Type III. Near the end of his arc, he tends towards Type IV and arguably Anti-Hero status.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: He's an outright giant.
* BadassBoast: Claims to be the fastest Digimon ever.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He is a Virus type Digimon and an antagonist when first introduced. He later does a HeelFaceTurn, but even then he was a WellIntentionedExtremist to begin with whose top concern was protecting fellow Digimon from Kurata's genocidal campaign.
* FamousLastWords: "Keenan, be strong."
%%* HeelFaceTurn
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: He is the first victim on screen to be taken down by one of Kurata's Gizumon XT]].
* KnightOfCerebus: Non villainous example, his arrival marked the end of the filler episodes and introduced story arcs. But then again, when he first appears to the DATS, he delivers a CurbStompBattle to them before Biyomon's HeroicSacrifice against him. That was something.
* LightningBruiser: Despite his giant size, he is capable of moving at incredible speeds, [[RapidFireFisticuffs particularly his fists]].
* OlympusMons: He is named for the [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Roman god Mercury]] (though is not too much like him otherwise) and also incorporates some elements of Myth/AztecMythology.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Not by choice but out of necessity.
* ParentalSubstitute: He served as Keenan's Father following the death of Frigimon who in turn served as the boy's mother for his biological parents.
* PragmaticAdaptation: There is already a Mercurymon in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' (Mercur'''e'''mon in the Japanese version), so Merukimon it was.
* RedHerring: Is initially set up as the BigBad. As the show goes on it turns out he had nothing to do the early threats facing the human world and his subordinates and allies prove the real danger for his arc.


A messenger of Merukimon who harbors a deep hatred towards Keenan.

His digivolutions are as follows:
** '''Rookie''': Gotsumon, his default form.
** '''Ultimate''': Meteormon ''(Insekimon)'', Gotsumon [[PaletteSwap turns white]] and gains enormous boost of power and speed.

->'''Voiced by:''' Ken Maeda (JP), Michael Lindsay (EN), Creator/CarolinaTak (Spain)

%%* DishingOutDirt
* TheDragon: To Merukimon
* EnigmaticMinion: Though loyal to Merukimon, he is willing to disobey him to carry out his vendetta against Humans.
* HeelFaceTurn: After being reborn.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Of the Digimon antagonists in Savers, Gotsumon holds the most contempt for Humans.
* LetsGetDangerous: Appears pretty harmless on his for most of his appearances, then he reveals he digivolve into his Ultimate form at will.
* LightIsNotGood: As Meteormon
* LightningBruiser: Again, as Meteormon
* RedemptionDemotion: Upon his reappearance, he goes from being an effective antagonist to becoming TheLoad for the heroes.

A character featured in [[ShortAnimeMovie Ultimate Power! Burst Mode Activate]] who is a Digimon in a Human form.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/DigimonTamers Calumon]] in that she [[spoiler: acts as a catalyst in helping Shinegreymon achieve Burst Mode in a matter relatively similiar to that of Calumon's role in Tamers]].
* MercurysWings: She has butterfly like wings hidden under her beret.
* MysteriousWaif
* PunnyName: Her name, along with Argomon's, is a pun on the word "algorithm".

!!Akihiro Kurata
''[[GratuitousEnglish "It's SHOWTIME!"]]''


A cowardly scientist who used to work with Satsuma, Yushima, Suguru, and Ikuto's parents, and accompanied them on the first expedition into the Digital World. His experiences and activities there were less than positive. Several years later, he's somehow curried the favour of the politicians in charge of DATS and uses this influence to first accompany the team into the Digital World; then, when that doesn't go quite as planned, to convince the government that both Digimon and DATS are a threat and to have them wiped out and arrested respectively. [[FromBadToWorse Things continue to go pear-shaped from there]]. As the series goes on, he's shown to have no regard for human life either, and in fact his real plan with the data he took from the Digital World was to revive a powerful digimon called Belphemon and use him to TakeOverTheWorld.

->Voiced by: Creator/MasamiKikuchi (JP), Brian Palermo (EN), Creator/EugenioBarona (Spain)
* AbsentMindedProfessor: A bit of one when first introduced, particularly when he's around digimon, since he has [[FantasticRacism "allergies" towards them.]] Of course, [[SubvertedTrope this demeanor is a ruse.]]
%%* AbsoluteXenophobe
* AnOfferYouCantRefuse: With Thomas, once his father decides to start working with him.
* AxCrazy: He relishes in violence and harming others, be they Digimon or humans.
%%* BadassLabcoat
* BigBad: [[spoiler:No, he's not the final opponent... but pretty much everything that goes wrong in the series is his fault, so...]]
* BrainsEvilBrawnGood: Pretty much summarizes his conflict with Digimon. A rare case among Digimon villains, which usually comes down to Brawn vs. Brawn.
* CatchPhrase: "It's SHOWTIME!"
* DespotismJustifiesTheMeans: His ultimate plan.
* DirtyCoward: He's a genocidal monster, but when the tables turn on him, he reacts with complete fear. In the end [[spoiler:he responds by begging [=ShineGreymon=] Burst Mode to stay back and begs for his life and then asking for someone to save him before he gets vaporized.]]
* DiskOneFinalBoss: After he's dealt with, the heroes then have to deal with the justifiably infuriated digital God his actions convinced to KillAllHumans.
* EvilCounterpart: To Spencer Damon. Both are humans that use science as their greatest assets, but whereas Spencer uses his genius to benefit Digimon and mankind alike, Kurata uses his genius to destroy and conquer them. In addition, Spencer [[HeroicSpirit will gladly face adversity]] and when push comes to shove, will even [[HeroicSacrifice give himself up to let his friends and comrades escape]]. By contrast, [[DirtyCoward Kurata]] flees at the slightest sign of danger and [[ItsAllAboutMe always puts himself above any others]].
* {{Expy}}: Kurata may have one or two roots in the original BigBad of ''VideoGame/DigimonWorld'', Analogman.
* FamousLastWords: "Not this! Please, no! This isn't what I was trying to do!! Argh! [[BigNo NOOOO!]] Help me... PLEASE!!"
* FantasticRacism: Against Digimon.
* FauxAffablyEvil: His humorous quirks only emphasize how he is easily the most monstrous villain of any ''Digimon'' canon.
* FinalSolution: Towards Digimon, which single-handedly makes this one of the darkest ''Anime/{{Digimon}}'' series to date.
%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic
* FreudianExcuse: Subverted in his backstory. Though admittedly Digimon did attack him first, it quickly becomes apparent that he is slaughtering them out of a petty grudge instead of anything else.
* HateSink: He's arguably the most unlikable character in the history of Digimon.
* TheHeavy: He has a hand in almost everything that happens in the series. The digimon who appeared in a MonsterOfTheWeek fashion appeared because his various experiments weakened the barrier between worlds, which also allowed Ikuto to be trapped in the Digital World. Even after his death, his actions still set the final arc in motion.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Well, he most certainly is, and because of it, the Digimon believe this about ''all'' humans.
** In fact, out of all the anime and manga of Digimon, he's the ''only'' genuinely evil human antagonist - [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Oikawa and Ken]] were controlled/influenced by Myotismon, respectively, [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Koichi]] the same, only by Cherubimon, [[Anime/DigimonTamers Yamaki]] was a WellIntentionedExtremist who later pulled off a HeelFaceTurn, and [[Manga/DigimonVTamer01 Neo Saiba]] was manipulated by Daemon.
* HumansAreWarriors: An evil example. Despite being in [[WorldOfBadass a universe filled with warrior monsters]], he managers to [[PersonOfMassDestruction cause enormous death and destruction]] through his scientific exploits alone.
* HumiliationConga: [[spoiler:After [=ShineGreymon=] evolves to Burst Mode, the fight becomes this for him. First, [=ShineGreymon=] preceeds to literally tear his OneWingedAngel form apart around him and shrugs off his counterattack like it was nothing. His dialog after that consists almost entirely of begging for his life as he's soundly defeated in one punch. To add insult to injury, his attempt to destroy the Digital World with his dying breath backfires and results in his death as he's screaming for someone to save him. Sure, that did set up the next arc, but he didn't know that, his last memories are being vaporised by his own revenge plot while dying as he lived as a scared, pathetic man. Due to him being the most evil Digimon human villain ever, his downfall is extremely satisfying.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: Okay Kurata, you hate Digimon. So how come so many of your plans and experiments rely on Digimon, your three lackeys can transform into Digimon, and you even ''merge with a Digimon!'' Shouldn't you not be able to stand it? Thomas even [[LampshadeHanging calls him on this!]]
** He believes Digimon are dangerous beasts because a Lynxmon had previously attacked him, except that the audience can see that the Digimon had only attacked him '''after''' he had shot at it. Additionally Kurata reveals that he had invaded and committed ''genocide'' on the Digital world [[spoiler: which meant a LOT of permanent deaths, among them Keenan's adoptive mother]], while accusing the Digimon of eventually attacking the Real World due to ''their'' vicious nature! He never cared about the damage done by Digimon, he always had plans to use Belphemon to rule the human world, who coincidentally does more damage in his rampage than all the earlier Digimon COMBINED. Really, his attitude can be summed up as ItsAllAboutMe.
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler: His ''real'' plan is to conquer both worlds for himself.]]
* ItsPersonal: "So, the Data Squad is caught up in a battle. Pity. I'll have to end it." Cue his transportation of all invading Digimon back to the Digital World.
--->'''[=Kurata=]''': [[EvilGloating YOU CAN'T WIN! I'M THE BEST!]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: Yes, his actions are nothing short of vile, by all standards. Given that there ''are'' countless Digimon out to cause death and destruction, as most other seasons prove by having Digimon-villains, chief amongst whom, the Demon Lords, he makes a rather good case that humanity ought to be able to defend itself.
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: And how! Although unfortunately, his action that accidentally caused his own death also had some [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt terrible]] [[ApocalypseHow unforeseen]] [[ColonyDrop consequences]] as well. Still doesn't change the fact he got exactly what he deserved though.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Despite his comical traits, the entire series gets much darker once he appears thanks to his mass slaughter of Digimon.
%%* MadScientist
%%* ManipulativeBastard
* NonActionBigBad: [[spoiler: Until he fuses with [[SealedEvilInACan Belphemon.]]]]
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:His reaction to [=ShineGreymon=] Burst Mode. His {{Oh Crap}}s get progressively larger as [=ShineGreymon=] shrugs off his counterattack like it was nothing, shoots him an absolutely hate-filled DeathGlare while performing an UnflinchingWalk straight towards him, and finally when Marcus prepares to punch his face in. His biggest one, however, comes when his final plan fails to destroy the Digital World as he'd wanted and he's killed in the resulting reaction.]]
* OmnicidalManiac: He initially wishes to kill all Digimon, but he eventually changes his mind when he realizes Digimon can be controlled. He still keeps up the act however as part of his bid to get the government on his side, who end up funding his TakeOverTheWorld [[EvilPlan scheme.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Merges with Belphemon to become Belphemon Rage Mode, his face appearing in its chest.]]

* SmugSnake: Most notably shown when he mocks Suguru even when the man stayed behind to allow the rest of the team to escape.
* TakeOverTheWorld: [[spoiler: Eventually revealed to be his secondary goal (his primary goal still being the genocide of Digimon)]]
%%* TheSociopath
* ThisCannotBe: His reaction to the DATS not only having regained their memories of their Digimon partners, but actually managing to damage a Gizumon he deployed after them.
** He reacts like this again when [[spoiler:Ravemon successfully damages Belphemon]].
* UngratefulBastard: Towards Spencer Damon.
* VillainousLegacy: Even after Kurata is defeated, his genocide of Digimon makes King Drasil believe all humans are evil, and thus he attempts to destroy the human world to protect the digimon world.
* WrongGenreSavvy: His actions are foolishly misguided in regards to his own universe-slash-series (and motivated purely by his lust for power), but in light of the Digimon multiverse as a whole (which is a borderline CosmicHorrorStory), his actions are more understandable.
* XanatosSpeedChess: Very good at this. He frequently sees his plans not as he had intended, but it doesn't phase him. [[DirtyCoward Unless his own life is in danger]].

%%* AntiVillain:
* BreathWeapon: Blue Prominence!
* CallingYourAttacks: He has a lot of stupid attack names he tries to impress Yoshi with.
* TheBrute: If only for his size.
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: Living embodiment of this trope...
* DumbMuscle: Plays this role in the trio.
* {{Engrish}}: [=BioSupinomon=], at TOEI's request
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: His two Bio-Hybrid forms, Bio-Stegomon and Bio-Spinomon.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: Has a super crush on Yoshino.
* GratuitousEnglish: Calls Yoshino "honey"
* HeelFaceTurn: In the last episode.
* PunchClockVillain: He's not really evil. He even seems to consider Kurata as monstrous as we do.
---> "I have to hand it to Kurata, that guy really knows his monsters. I guess it takes one to know one."
* RollingAttack: [=BioStegomon=]
* RussianGuySuffersMost: Ivan serves Kurata because he has a ton of adorable siblings to support.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: With Nanami and Kouki.
* ScaledUp: Works more often than it does not.
* SpikeShooter: Shell Needle Rain and Sonic Slash Rain
* TechnicolorFire: Blue Prominence.

%%* AxCrazy
* BloodKnight: He makes Marcus look like a pacifist in comparison. He loves fighting and violence.
* CastingAShadow: [=BioDarkdramon=]'s Dark roar
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: For one episode, anyway.]]
%%* CoolBike: Rides one in the epilogue. Since he doesn't wear a helmet, Yoshi chases him.
* EvilCounterpart: To Masaru.
* FeatheredFiend: Like Nanami his form is based on an aversion to the trope.
* FoeRomanceSubtext: Kouki's a bit too obsessed with beating Masaru...
* ForTheEvulz: Seems to be the only reason he works for Kurata. He's the only one of his trio who does ''not'' undergo a HeelFaceTurn in the end, and is still misbehaving 5 years into the future.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: While Ivan and Nanami has their motives, he's only motivated by wanting to cause destruction and fighting.
* HeroInsurance: Exploits DATS lack of it.
* {{Jerkass}}: Rivals Kurata in this. In his final fight with Marcus in Shine Greymon, he's doesn't pull any punches despite fighting in the middle of a city and tries to kill Shine Greymon by bringing a building down on him.
* JoustingLance: Gigantic Lance
%%* PsychoForHire
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: With Nanami and Ivan.
* ScaledUp: It doesn't work.
* ShockAndAwe: As [=BioThunderbirdmon=]
* SoreLoser: He goes completely ballistic after his first defeat from DATS' Mega form Digimon and demands Kurata be given more power so he can get his revenge.

Originally one of a group of seven powerful Digimon that once terrorized the Digital World, Belphemon was a rather cute-looking Digimon [[SleepModeSize (at least initially)]] which was weaponized by Kurata, who eventually merged with him after his other means of controlling Belphemon were sabotaged. Belphemon briefly regains control of his body during Kurata's climactic fight with the Data Squad before Kurata took control back.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: His Rage Mode even makes DATS Digimon's Mega forms look tiny.
* TheBerserker: When not under Kurata's control.
* BreathWeapon: At Belphemon's power level, it's practically a small WaveMotionGun.
* ChainedByFashion
* CombatTentacles: Belphemon's chains serve this purpose.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Again, when not under Kurata's control.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: He's only briefly acting when not controlled by Kurata, and during that time he simply appears to motivated by causing destruction.
* MakeMeWannaShout: He can do this in sleep mode.
* NighInvulnerable: His Rage Mode at full strength is impervious anything short of something at least of the level of DATS digimon in Burst Mode.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Rage Mode looks like a demonic dragon.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Even his Sleep Mode is huge jump in power above anything seen before him, flattening a big chunk of the city.
%%* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver
* SleepModeSize: Sleep Mode, which is still quite dangerous, and unlike most examples, is actually enormous, it's only small compared to his Rage Mode.

!!King Drasil ''(Yggdrasil)''
->''"Before the two worlds slash into each other, we must totally eliminate the Human World, first."''
-->--'''King Drasil''', through '''Spencer Daimon'''
The god of the Digital World. He's not impressed with how humans have been wrecking his world lately.

->Voiced by: Creator/RikaFukami (JP), Jonathan David Cook [[spoiler:and Creator/MonaMarshall]] (EN), Julia Martínez (Spain)
* AntiVillain: The guy is only trying to protect the Digimon and Kurata tried to commit ''genocide'' against them. It's only natural he'd come to think HumansAreTheRealMonsters. That and [[spoiler:the two worlds are about to collide and from his perspective due to Kurata's actions, destroying the human world is the best option.]]
* BigBad: Of the final arc. However, Kurata is still directly responsible for this and the overall BigBad of the series, so King Drasil is actually just the FinalBoss.
* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler:"Very well then... I shall lay myself to rest and protect you from afar without any further meddling. I don't know if a world can exist where humans and Digimon live together in harmony. But if it is to become a reality, then it will be completely up to you."]]
* GodIsEvil: Subverted. He's normally a pretty good guy, it's just a human tried to destroy his subjects, convincing him that HumansAreTheRealMonsters.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Thanks to Kurata's completely unprovoked attempted genocide of the Digimon, he's come to believe this. [[spoiler:Marcus manages to convince him otherwise in the end]].
* JerkassHasAPoint: Say what you want, but human history has rarely been idyllic.
* MasterComputer: [[spoiler:Is revealed to be the computer that oversees the Digital World.]] His realizing the limitations this comes with is a major plot point.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:After being defeated in Spencer Damon's body, he transforms into a massive machine form.]]
%%* OrcusOnHisThrone
* PhysicalGod: Is the god of the Digital World and pretty much has the power to back that up.
* ThisCannotBe: "Cannot compute! Cannot compute! The probability of you defeating me was 0%! Fatal error!"

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Previous seasons had known Digimon be at least one or two heads taller than a normal human adult, but here they are simply ''gigantic'', as big as the protagonist Digimon in their Mega forms.
* CurbStompBattle: Gallantmon hands out two of these to DATS, even against [=ShineGreymon=] Burst Mode.
* DeadpanSnarker: Craniamon shows shades in his fight from Marcus and [=ShineGreymon=], responding to his determinator spiel with a weary quip.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Kudamon/Kentaurosmon]] is the first to defect, [[spoiler: Craniamon]] is the second, and later [[spoiler: all surviving members]] defect from King Drasil in the last episode.
* KnightTemplar: Leopardmon qualifies for his philosophy of "Power Equals Justice".
* LoadBearingHero: Craniamon, after he stands in for [=BanchoLeomon=] in keeping the worlds from colliding.
%%* MyMasterRightOrWrong
* NobleDemon: Craniamon. He tried to persuade Drasil to forgo his plan to destroy the Human world at first. Though he would agree to Drasil's plan, he maintains an open mind and is able to gracefully accept defeat when his opponent has proven their strength.
* PunchClockVillain: Gallantmon. He acknowledges HumansAreFlawed, with not all of them being evil, but sees that the destruction of the human world is the only way for the Digital World to survive.
* TheUnfought: Dynasmon, Magnamon, [=UlforceVeedramon=], and Omnimon were never directly fought by DATS.

->Voiced by: Hanawa (JP)
* BigBad: of [[ShortAnimeMovie Ultimate Power! Burst Mode Activate]]
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Argomon has multiple eyes all over its body which are all open except for those on his head. They become open when at Mega level (which is also named Argomon)
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Has this opinion, but it is downplayed in comparison to Merukimon and Drasil.
* PunnyName: He is [[MeaningfulName named after]] [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Argus]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argus_Panoptes Panoptes]].
