Digimon are humans trapped in the Digital World via a Matrix-like simulation.Naturally, if you die in the Digital World, you die in real life.
When a human dies in the Digital World they are reborn as a digimon.Because, as no things much like human (ignoring Gennai, and not counting humanoid digimon) they are recreated into the closes thing that the digital world is programmed (or whatever the proper term would be)and is turned into a a digitama and a full digimon life cycle. (Please point any holes in my theory)
Digivices back up partner digimon's memories in case it dies.See: Poyomon's digivolution to Tokomon. "Together we can make me Patamon again!" Also, Agumon's death and revival in Savers.
Digimon Group Speculation
Royal KnightsAn aquatic digimon and a marine digimon for the final two, if that can fit into their pseudo knights of the round table scheme.
Big Death StarsA seventh member since they are based on Japan's days of the week but there are only six of them. This one will have no level just like the others and be based on the sun. It will have a planet killing ability to counter the Earth member's ability to destroy stars.
BanchoFour more Digimon with the title.
ChaosmonThe six remaining will not look like Omnimon
Legendary WarriorsAdvanced hybrid forms for the four elements lacking them and for the corrupted warriors of darkness. Rookies for the eight elements lacking them.
Olympus TwelveSix more members based on the Roman Pantheon, seeing as there only six right now.
Seven Great Demon Lords and Super Demon LordsA new Super Demon Lord based on a beast from the Book of Revelation, because Belphemon Sleepmode can't be a Super Demon lord when it's the lower form of a regular one.
Digimon is a sequel to PokémonAll Pokemon will end up extinct...except for Porygon-Z; a Digital Pocket Monster...eventually Porygons descendants will diversify and become all different kinds of Digimon.
The Digimon with visors can't see without them.
Frontier happened firstActually, my timeline is as follows: Frontier->Adventure->02 (Tamers and Savers are in seperate timelines). There are two pieces of evidence to support this: 1. Adventure mentioned that there were Digi-Destined prior to the current ones, and the only other Digi-Destined that seemed to exist in this universe were the Frontier kids (herein I will call the "Legendary Warriors"). 2. Patamon is seen being born in Frontier, and eventually ends up being one of the Adventure Digimon. If I may also further dive into the realms of Fanon, Patamon may have gained some sort of amnesia or may have been killed, turned into a Digi-Egg, and then hatched into a new Patamon for the events in Adventure.
Digisoul has always been the main method of Digivolution with a partner, only the Savers cast are aware that it exists and can use it properly.Digisoul is the power of human emotions made into energy. Digivolution with a human partner has always worked on the basis of the Digimon gaining enough energy from their tamer to Digivolve, but it's worked differently each time - beyond Champion level, the heroes always need something extra, like the crests, Blue Cards, or DNA digivolution. The Savers cast don't have that problem. All four of the DATS team learned on their own to use greater amounts of Digisoul, but they needed BanchoLeomon's teachings to learn how to go as far as Mega, and they even unlocked a special power unique to the season, Burst Mode. So, my theory is - everyone in the series can use Digisoul. The only ones who are aware that it actually exists are the Savers cast, mostly thanks to none other than Suguru Daimon, who discovered it, mastered it, and started being the *** out of Mega-levels with his bare fists. In the other series, digisoul is still used subconsciously for the early levels, but later levels require actual mastery of Digisoul, so the additional items/methods are required.
The Kids Parents from Digimon Adventure were the First DigidestinedOr at least some of them. Matt's Dad was very helpful to them and happened to know a bit too much about what the hell was going to. Tai's house was a point visted by many Digimon when they went to the real world, as well as a business complex seen a few times, and at one point haunted by Wizardmon, though both could be a coincidence. Izzy's parents were quite reluctant to let Izzy help with the other Digidestined, yet they weren't so much afraid of the Digimon. Lastly, when showing the first Digidestined, they were silhouettes of the kids, perhaps they get it from their parents?
Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers happen in different universes, but share the same Digital world.When Ken was younger, he went to the Digital World, there he was attacked by a "Black Spore." He wasn't alone during this time. There was a kid with, it was Ryo Akiyama. This reflects the WonderSwan games, where Ken and Ryo, who is the main character of many WonderSwan games, beat Millenniummon. Of course, Ryo, who the fans wanted to see more of in the series, would eventually be in Tamers as well. Obviously, since Digimon was a Game in Tamers, but wasn't anything in Adventure, they must be different worlds right? .....
Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers happen in the Same world, and share the same Digital World.Or, alternatively, The Digidestined make a bunch of money by selling the Digimon material to the world, claiming all the Digimon Real World Events as Product placement or something, Hell they say in the Epilogue to Adventure 02 that TK becomes an Author. Thing is, when they Travel to the Digital World, time is displaced, So a young Ken could easily be infected by a Villain who doesn't exist yet while meeting a kid from the Future. Or....
Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers happen in the same world, but don't share the same Digital World.The Digital World from Tamers is a wildly different place from Adventure, not as wildly different as Frontier's, but so different enough it's easy to say they are different places. But even still, Ryo and Ken could still meet in the Adventure Digital World and Ryo could also be in the Tamers Digital World in one of two ways. 1) Remember that episode in Adventure 02 where TK and Kari went to the "Dark Ocean?" That was a different Digital World. Remember how the Internet from the "Our War Game" how it acted as a separate place from the Digital World? Yeah, it was. Remember when they talked about the Possibility of different Digital Worlds and they did that Rainbow Colour Printer thing? Yeah... There are different Digital Worlds. This then makes sense, so the Monster Makers make the one Digital world and the other is made by Loki of Yggdrasil or something.
Digimon Adventure and Digimon Tamers happen in different universes, and don't share the same Digital World.Then again, the Epilogue to Adventure 02 makes it nearly impossible to set it up so Tamers happens afterwords, so really, Ryo just got bopped around. Or, 2) the other way Ken and Ryo could meet in different Digital worlds, is that it's not the same Ryo.
Ryo is in Digimon Adventure because he is famous.Ryo is called the Digimon King in the Tamer universe, where Adventure is a TV show. He is in the Adventures show as a guest star.
Digimon Seasons 1 and 2 are a TV show in the EVA world.Agumon and Veemon's upper digivolutions look like EVA, and the light-hearted message of banding together with your friends, some of whom look weird and have self-esteem issues, to fight scary, evil monsters is meant to help the general public accept the existence of the EV As and NERV (someone's gonna ask where those big robot-things come from, right?) as part of the battle for good. Gendo is a fan of the Digimon Emperor, who he emulates by wearing glove and acting like a BAMF.
The true mission of the Digi-destined is to revive the real Royal KnightsFirst of all, Lucemon "Satan Mode" isn't really Lucemon's evolution, is his "pet"(if remember, the REAL lucemon in the final battle of frontier, was inside the ball of darkness) and the "Digimon world" was only one connected with the different digimon universe Maybe the first digi-destined have as digimons the royal knight, and the enemy was the seven demon kings and in the final battle...they sacrifice themselves to stop Lucemon and his demon kings. When Lucemon is the only one to defeat and the only royal knights alive are a tired Alphamon, a terminal Omegamon, Dynasmon and Lord Knightmon. Lucemon invoques his "pet" and fight against the four Knights, the battle starts to "destroy" the digimon world and, in the conclusion, Alphamon combine his power with the digivices to "seal" Lucemon , but Alphamon is too tired to make it and Lucemon resist, so Dynasmon and Lord Knightmon sacrifice themselves to be sealed with Lucemon. they make it and the evil is destroyed. but the digimon world is in chaos and is near destruction, so Alphamon and omegamon use his power, once again, with the help of the digi-destined, to divide the digimon world, separate them and connect them, every one with one of the Human world's. But Omegamon is too much power and he can't be still alive, so he have to say "good-bye". the peace like to have returned. But Akphamon has one last task to done, he use all te power left to send back the children's home, but also separate the digi-vice's power and call his death-partners to create his digi-eggs, the "symbols" and send them to all the digimon's world. That way, if Lucemon or any of the seven demon king's return, there will be new digi-destined to protect them. with all done, the legendary champion of the digimon world's soul can, finally, rest...waiting to be called once again.
Digimon are Pokemon participating in a MMORPG while inside their ballsPokemon are canonically energy beings that can be turned into information. The Digimon world allows Pokemon to experience the feeling of evolution without actually gaining the required levels.
Digimon World Dawn & Dusk are, literally, games, and not of the MMO variety.During the game, the Big Bad uses data-erasing waves that fully degenerate digimon and brainwash humans several times, but these somehow don't work with the main character and his digimon. Later on, the Big Bad starts addressing the main character as the "Real Being". In the final battle, he tries to erase the main character, just to see that his attack doesn't do anything to him/her. Yet, nobody even bothers wondering why. This explains why nobody does anything to stop the Big Bad and why you are not affected by his attacks: all the other digimon and characters in the game are, in fact, computer-controlled data, while you are supposed to do everything and have a Plot Armor to do so.
Somewhere down the line, there will be a Crisis CrossoverSince by its very nature there are multiple universes, a multidimmensional threat could be used to bring the different canons together to combat it. They could also use this to fix some plot holes and let some of the people who are from worlds were they never met their Digimon partners again. Come on, you know it'd be great!
Millenniummon isn't technically Ryo's partner.It seems odd that a Digimon who not only is a Jogress, but also contains a hodgepodge of other Digimon created by a human in an unorthodox way (I hesitate to say artificial, considering all Digimon are technically artificial) as one of its parts would have a destined partner. As such, Ryo's partner is actually Devimon. Half of Millenniummon is Kimeramon/Chimairamon, who was made with Devimon's data that Ken found in the ocean.
The human world in all series is one and the same!...But the digital world is differing - It is split in 2 set digital worlds made of 2 opposing quadrants each, rotating on its axis at a different rate to the human world, and the humans go to the side that is closest to the human world at the time, eg, enter east and west world, but are in the western quadrent due to it being closer, but can go to eastern side if they have enough supplies and/or time to go that far. The timeline (focusing on the anime) goes something like this: - Tamers - Evidently South and North-split digital world from Ebonwonmon and Zhuquiomon's appearance, most likely all takes place in the North side - this digital world is currently in 6 layers. -After the final battle, the sovereigns are power drained from fighting so long, and Azulongmon and Baihumon go back to their world. HOWEVER... - X-evolution Yggdrasil defeats and seals away the sovereigns in their weakened state, and unleashes hell with the X-virus. - he merges the layers in 2 sets of 3, leaving 3 merged layers. But somehow... -The two digital worlds become temporarily merged after the end of X-evolution, the digital world becoming whole for once, and the normal digimon begin hunting down the x-digimon, whom generally go into hiding, for unknown reasons, leading to: - Xros Wars - The world is in turmoil, and the battles have lead to the digital world being split into 108 pieces until all digimon can come under one leader, what better time for bad guys unleash evil plans? Baguramon begins to take over this world. Also, due to the unstable nature of the combined digital world, digivolution has become nigh-impossible, and the power of digixrossing is turned to as a substitute. After the events of this series, the digital world becomes 2 separate worlds again, with the sovereigns now only sealed away due to some kind of a power-down lock done by Baguramon and the fact that the world has forgotten them. - Data Squad/Savers - In the meantime of Xros Wars, Hypnos' work has lead to the rise of DATS, whom we KNOW to have memory-erasers, need I say more about why humans don't remember a certain rampaging red blob? It's only years after Xros Wars that the human crew gained technology to go to the digital world, and started exploring the E-W world, starting point at West. - Adventure - E-W world, starting point at East. Quite a bit of technology went haywire and shut down due to the events of Data Squad, leading to digital equipment becoming rare until it it is back in mass-production. The 7 child heroes traverse across the digital world, the crests power is digivolving-made-easy technology recently developed, and the partner digimon, as test subjects, would have, had all gone to plan, have been able to digivolve freely on their own using the crests. - Adventure 02 - The sovereigns were released from being sealed away, due to the crest power being redirected to them. The 02 story happened exactly as we saw it, however, I'm going to take a guess and say that the ending wasn't the real one. - Frontier - Few years after 02, no-one knows about digital world apart from the digidestined and a few others. The Frontier team goes to the N-S world, which was most affected by Xros Wars. Questions anyone?
The Digimon multiverse is pie-shaped.Yes, this is a serious WMG. You could also compare it to the division of the universe into sectors in Green Lantern. But each universe (individual anime, manga, games, etc) is a different slice/sector, meeting precisely in the middle (which is where Huanglongmon has been patiently waiting to make his appearance ever since the series began). And each individual slice of this confectionary masterpiece has it's own delicious layers, as Izzy showed us back during 02. So characters like Ryo, who cross over into other universes, are going through either the middle or jumping into the next universe over, while the Dark Ocean in 02 and the Zones in Xros Wars are merely more delicious layers stuffed between the human and digital world crusts.
The Digital World is the same, but reboots itself on occasionWhich is why some digimon can hop through digital worlds; they just have to go back in time to before a reboot(or forward to after one).
Every season is in the same exact universe, with no alternate dimensions aside from the Digital World, DigiQuartz, Dark Ocean, and Dream World. Also, every movie is canon.Here's how this works: Tamers' backstory of the Digital World is correct. Adventure established that people who catch a glimpse of the Digital World become Digidestined. It is completely ridiculous to think that only the first eight Digidestined saw that stuff in the original Digimon Adventure movie. It turns out that it was broadcast on TV, and tapes of recordings of the event got circulated around the world, creating Willis, Thomas, Zoe, and others. In the intervening years between the Adventure movie and the Adventure series, Digimon Frontier happens. Because of the severely compressed time of the Digital World, the couple of years between Frontier and Adventure in the real world are actually eons in the Digital World, and so the Frontier kids become ancient legends in Adventure. During Adventure, Zoe begins writing a pilot to a show based on her adventures in the Digital World. Later, she goes on a vacation to Hawaii with her family, and meets Mimi there. The two discover their shared experience, and Mimi helps Zoe write Digimon, which later gets published, and the Digimon Tamers kids become big fans of it. After Adventure, the time of the Digital and real worlds become synced up. In the time between Adventure and 02, Digimon Savers and Tamers happen. DATS is actually just a branch of Hypnos, and as such, they aren't told the full story of the Digital World. The reason why Digimon die in Tamers but not anywhere else is because the Digimon bio-emerging in Takato's area are from a part of the Digital World that is very, very far from the Village where digieggs show up, so most of the Digimon there don't actually know that they get reconfigured, and thus grew the ability to absorb the data before it disappears. The Tamers and Savers stories never cross over because they happen at very different parts of the Digital World, and their climactic arcs are both on such a large scale that they overshadow each other. In other words, Takato doesn't notice the Digital World crashing because he's focusing on the D-Reaper, and Marcus doesn't notice the D-Reaper because he's focusing on the Digital World crashing. The events of Tamers & Savers are what allowed the Adventure kids to go back to the Digiworld to give up their crests, and also what allowed Tai to be in the Digiworld at the start of the first episode of Digimon Adventure 02. Tamers and Savers happened while the Adventure kids were in the Digital World returning their crests, and when they returned to the real world, the events of both had been covered up as a crazy movie stunt or terrorist attack or something (Like the first Adventure movie), and so Tai and the others were oblivious. The widespread acceptance of Digimon at the very end of Savers is not due to King Drasil; it's because of Myotismon. Between the 02 epilogue and Xros Wars, the Digimon Savers movie happens (Older than They Look is in full effect here). Basically, that movie tells the tale of the apocalypse. Argomon successfully killed just about everyone. Marcus and the other Digimon returned came to the real world to try and stop him, but they were too late, and in a moment of mourning, Marcus was tied up like Thomas and Yoshi. Marcus and Agumon eventually destroy Argomon, but the damage has already been done. The world is over. DATS spends its remaining days looking for survivors, but to no avail. But there were survivors! Grouped together, the last people decide that the Digital World was the cause of all this trouble, and agree to forget about it. And thus, when Digimon Xros Wars rolls around, all is forgotten. Nobody knows for sure anymore whether the Digital or real world came first, so many just guess. The various cameo appearances of past Digidestined is the work of the Time-traveling boat guy. Ryo is not a dimension-hopping badass, he's actually just been brainwashed by Millenniummom, and so he thinks he's changed dimensions. Taichi from V-Tamer 01 is actually just a clone of Taishi from Adventure. Any apparent cross-overs with 02 or Frontier on his part is actually a hallucination caused by the degradation of his brain due to the advanced internal aging of clones(or maybe he's just a cousin who got his clothing from the same sources). The Digimon World is a specific paradise meant to be free of human interference, which is why V-Tamer Taichi's encounters with Davis and Ryo appeared to be crossovers, it is hard to enter the place without inside help. Parallelmon wasn't passing through parallel worlds, it was opening up wormholes, gathering energy to travel to parallel worlds! Babamon brought Taichi and Takuya to Witchelny(another Bandai V-pet Wizardmon is from). Parallelmon's reckless wormhole use caused a time paradox that let Taichi meet Davis and the paradox was fixed when Parallelmon was destroyed but the fix took time, long enough for Taichi to meet Ryo. Babamon was able to call heroes from different Digital World eras because Witchelny is magical. The Adventure Digivice is based off of the Digivice 01, it was an attempt to enhance the up link feature by causing a permanent psychic link between a human and a Digimon. While this failed, the designers saw strong emotions between partners using it accelerated the evolution process, so they decided not to throw it out. The D3 is obviously the third in the line, created in dark ocean to store certain files(Digimentals, Control Spires) and also to broadcast to multiple partners(suppressing evolution, triggering Jogresses, the latter feature lost in the first Digivice 01 "upgrade"). Meanwhile, the D-arc used in Tamers is when they finally got that psychic link working, explaining why Takato can do what he does. They also added a card swipe feature because the crest powers proved to not be as reliable as originally envisioned while Biomerging is the ultimate purpose of the psychic link. Lord Whamon made the Digivice 01 of course and the Diginomes, the larval forms of Gennai's people, are the ones responsible for all the "upgrades" of dubious quality. The Digivice ic was an individual effort by Spencer Damon and the D-tector from Frontier is a case of Older Than They Think. Yggdrasil is a title given to "Queen Bee" Diginomes. Norun from Next and that thing at the end of Savers are further evidence of Gennai people being an intermediate stages in the species(like Digimon 'de-evolve'). The Yggdrasil of X-Evolution, D-Cyber and Savers are a line of successors while Next Yggdrasil is from a different colony. The X Antibody Digimon resulted from the arbitrator program and as it was designed to keep Yggdrasil(s) in check and emerged in response to (a)Yggdrasil's attempts to wipe them out. Cmon Digimon takes place right before V-Tamer 01, "ancient types" are not as old as people think. Chronicles, and the non Ryo games can probably be ignored as in-universe merchandise or extensions of the show they were based on.
Digimon naming convention is based on file extensions.Specifically, every Digimon's data is stored in the digital world as a .mon file. Hence Angemon, Greymon, Impmon or truly: Ange.mon, Grey.mon, and Imp.mon.
The Royal Knights are the 12 signs of the Western Zodiac, plus Serpentarius.Well, Dynasmon has a bull-like head and big strength(Taurus), Omegamon is a fusion and has a relation of duality with Alphamon(Gemini), Duftmon has a mane and a Leopard Mode(Leo), Lord Knightmon has a pink armor and an attack mentioning a goddess(Virgo), Examon has a scorpion-like tail and the ability to inject virus in their opponents(Scorpio), Sleipmon is a centaur archer(Sagittarius) and Dukemon has a fish-like head(Pisces).
Originally, Belzeebumon was intended as the Demon of Anger and Leviamon was intended as the Demon of GluttonyWell, half of the group is not named after one of the seven princes of hell- and, if they only cared/discovered about their "official" sins after put the last of the "outsiders" in the group, not exists any reason to Belzebumon be planned as the Demon of Gluttony and Leviamon as the Demon of Envy. Beyond this, let's be frank, Belzebumon remembers a representation of Anger and Leviamon remembers a representation of Gluttony.
Lucemon will attain two adult forms.One as in the "champion level" that comes after rookie(or child) and adult after larva stage(which would be super ultimate/super mega, Satan/Shadow Lord being a pupa). His rival Susanoomon, will probably get a new form to match it, probably a burst mode or digixross(if not also super mega) but not before Lucemon has his revenge on Grandracmon.
Exists other group of Demon Lords beyond the Seven Great, this time Death/Undead themedWell, half of the four current Demon Lords outside the seven is undead-themed(Bagramon have one skeleton-like hand and Belial Vandemon is a vampire) and the digimon named after Satan, the guy more obvious to attain a Demon Lord version... is undead.
Someday, the Wonderswan games will get remakes.This will allow a new generation of Digimon fans, and even those who were around the first time, to hear the story of Ryo. The graphics and technology of the time didn't do such an epic tale justice. Bonus points, if they actually make ZeedMilleniumon legitimitely scary. Here's hoping 2013. :)
All the Seven Great Demon Lords have a "good" variationWell, Digimon Savers mentioned the idea of use the seven sins positively, the following series have Leviamon as one hero of the past and exists no motive to the only of the seven with a "good" variation be the Demon of Gluttony.
Gallantmon and Ophanimon are brother and sister and are the great dragonsThey are the humanoid forms of the Great Dragons Megidramon and Magnadramon. Megidramon was tierd of being feared so he form a humanoid mega form. His sister went with him because she was worried about him. He became a royal knight to not be feared. Ophanimon meet Serphimon and Cheruibmon and they became the Three great angles. Golddramon found out and became Magnamon so he could keep a eye on them.
Gallantmon is Plutomon's bastard sonPlutomon had a forbidden love with Cresemon's daughter, resulting in her pregnancy, and to hide the child away from Cresemon's fury, Plutomon raised him on his own. Gallantmon grew up and became a royal knight. Now with his power and his new friends/allies, he was finally able to spend some quality time with his mother. His grandmother came to terms with the revelation, and is now trying to be a good grandmother.
The last Royal Knight will be revealed asSusanoomon: Because after Omnimon, Magnamon and Imperialdramon, Gallantmon and his Crimson Mode, Kentaurosmon, and the XrosWars manga, there's been members of the Royal Knights aligned with the Digidestined, either as partners or allies, in every season, if I'm right. And he looks like a Royal Knight.
Sufficiently long-lived Digimon eventually gain the capacity to manipulate the data of other Digimon and of the Digital World.The Harmonious Ones, the Sovereign, the Celestial Digimon, Lucemon and Merukimon all displayed abilities above and beyond what other Digimon did. And what do they have in common? Being members of some group, based on some mythology.
The virus mentioned in Vamdemon's profile is Demon.First, because of the similarity of the names, and second, because one of the Belial Vamdemon card profiles refers to' him as "the second coming of the Demon Lord" and one of his game profiles mentions that he is rumored to be one of the Seven Great Demon Lords.
Pokemon takes place in one of Digimon multiverseDigimon had lots of multiverse with their own rules.
The so far unrevealed Perfect between Baohackmon and Jesumon will be a cat-dragon similar to Holydramon but more armored, and also evolve from Leomon. He will do what Leomon is known for.Come on, it's Jesus, you know he'll have to literally go through hell to reach his final form.
