Kari/Hikari is Kira.Based solely on the fact that Hikari means "Light" and her family name is Yagami. Also, her English name is "Kira" with two letters swapped.
Hikari is not an ordinary humanShe seems to have some kind of ... powers. She can recall very early childhood memories and seems to feel what other people are thinking (before her Plot-Relevant Age-Up, of course). Her powers left her, when she grew up.
Hikari is Yggdrasil
In an alternate universe, Kari is Kairi.Aside from the fact that they look scarily, scarily similar (This troper saw a commerical for Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories years ago; Kairi was featured at the very end. I seriously thought she was Kari), as well as their similar (Romanized/English dub) names, Kairi wasn't born on Destiny Islands/whereever it is that Sora and Riku grew up. She also said at the beginning of the first game that she doesn't remember her hometown, leaving her origins up in the air. Also, amongst the Digidestined, Kari is rather special. Aside from abilities mentioned above, her crest, Light, is the only crest that can't be immediately interpreted as a character trait. Kairi is one of the seven Princesses of Heart, and has a pure-hearted personality. So, in an alternate universe where the events of Digimon Adventure and Adventure 02 never happened, Kari was sent to live with her grandma on the islands for... whatever reason. There, she met Sora and Riku, and since they were pretty little then, Sora couldn't pronounce her name right, so he started calling her "Kairi" and the nickname stuck.
Digimon Seasons 1 and 2 are a TV show in the EVA world.Agumon'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 EVAs 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.
DemiDevimon is the reincarnation of the Devimon that Angemon defeated.After all, it's stated that all Digimon reincarnate (often without their old memories), and Demidevimon seems to have some animosity towards TK and Patamon in particular. Perhaps he has some lingering anger in his subconscious towards the Digimon and Digidestined who killed him.
The Four Dark Masters are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.Besides the fact that Devimon (the Devil) started the apocalypse and the 666 imagery/dead rising (zombie behavior, vampirism) type stuff surrounding VenomMyotismon (the Beast of the Apocalypse), AND the fact that Apocalymon immediately follows them—they have specific imagery identifying each of them. MetalSeadramon's episodes make significant use of food and hunger, Puppetmon is accompanied and served by Kiwimon, who strongly resembles a plague doctor/shoots little plague doctors as his attack (Pestilence), Machinedramon leads an army against the Digidestined and utilizes strategy for more efficient plans at their destruction (War), and Piedmon expresses a desire to kill everyone quickly and painfully...preferably alone (Death).
The real Big Bad is a HagurumonDigimon were being controlled by dark gears at least for about half of the show. If you look up for Hagurumon's info, you'll notice two attacks in particular: Darkness Gear and Command Input. While Hagurumon's Darkness Gear summons a literal dark gear to attack its opponent, the Command Input attack actually installs viri on the opponent and attempts to gain control of their movements. Now, being a Child Digimon, it would be improbable for his attacks to do anything more than tickles to higher-leveled Digimon. The logical solution is to attempt to force the gears he summons inside other Digimon and run the viri from within, where their data is more vulnerable. The Black Gears, thus, are just what results in combining Hagurumon's Darkness Gear and Command Input attack. The combination of attacks made the gears strong enough to be able to break through some Digimon's cores, even higher-leveled ones. If we can take it to the next level, any and all Digimon that fell victim of the Black Gears, and a few who weren't explicitly under their effects were just being controlled by an ill-maneered Hagurumon. The responsible for all of the plot, then, is a Hagurumon, which would put it at least above Devimon according to the Sorting Algorithm of Evil (which would also mean he was also controlling Devimon to fight off the kids who were "spoiling his fun"). As stated on the complementary material, Hagurumon can't judge right from wrong, so all the Black Gears thing would be just a game for him, and he stopped playing when he got bored.
Piedmon made the other three Dark MastersPiedmon was the only one created from Apocalymon's chaos on the Digital world, but he is also the only fully organic member of the group. MetalSeadramon is a cyborg, Puppetmon is a wooden puppet with gears and such inside him, and Machinedramon is a robot. Piedmon created the other two to be his allies but was smart enough to make them weaker than himself to keep on top.
The Greymon from the Adventure movie is the same Greymon that fought Tai's partner in episode 16, and was the partner digimon of one of the first Digi-Destined mentioned in episode 53.An Agumon is shown (in silhouette) standing with the original five Digi-Destined that Gennai tells the kids about before their battle with Apocalymon. At some point during the original group's adventures in the Digital World, that Agumon was killed in a battle, but instead of its egg reformatting in the hands of its partnernote it instead wound up with young Tai and Kari. After hatching, evolving to Greymon and fighting Parrotmon, it returned to the Digi-World and was eventually enslaved and brainwashed into being one of Etemon's lackeys.
The Black Gears were used before the children arrived on File Island.Alright, so, I've started watching the series over again, and I recently watched episode 5 again. In this episode, the cast finds themselves in a factory that "builds nothing", as Yamato put it. The Black Gear that infects Andromon is shown to be lodged within the workings of a machine, not flying through the air like the others seen through the course of the first arc. This makes me think that either Devimon had been plaguing the Digital World with the Black Gears before the children arrived (this one simply got stuck in the machine earlier), OR another Digimon had used the same method in the past (this one had been stuck in the machine for some time). We've seen that the factory that Andromon protects is rather large, so it would take him some time to survey the entire building for something as simple as an out of place gear, making the latter far more likely.
Taichi is Spike Spiegel's Dad, or ancestorThey both have the same hair.
Adventure is a sequel to V-Tamer 01.Taichi, Neo and the other kids had their memories erased at the end of the manga in order for them to live a normal life. Zeromaru hatched early, and at the end was reformatted into a Koromon....that ended up on File Island with some new friends. Unfortunately, the memory thing backfired horribly when Millenniummon unleashed Apocalymon and Tai was dragged into a new adventure with none of his previous memories to aid him.
Myotismon was the fifth dark masterThe gate to the human world, and the pedestal needed to activate it, were originally in Gennai's base, before it got taken over by the dark masters. The next time we see these items, Myotismon has his hands on them. Since it is doubtful the dark masters just handed them over, and myotismon doesn't have the power to take on 4 megas, the only conclusion is that he was part of the dark masters. In Venomyotismon form, he would fit in perfectly powerwise.
If Tai had chosen the wrong card to get through the gate, the gang would have ended up in The Pokémon Universe.Not all fans each series were rivals, who hasn't dreamt of an epic crossover series?
The Greymon/Parrotmon fight was indirectly responsible for Matt and T.K.'s parents' divorce.In a flashback, T.K. keeps telling his mom about the "monsters" and it's bothering her so much (at least according to the English dub). T.K.'s fascination with them gotten to the point where the school was concern about it. The parents paid the teacher and/or principal to discuss it. However, the discussion gotten off-topic as the parents vented out their anger and frustration over each other. And this eventually led them into divorce. Matt overheard all this. While he still deeply cares for his brother, deep down he always resented him for causing their parents to split up.
Joe's parents made a cameo in Episode 38.In episode 38, we see the DigiDestined at the Convention Center checking on their comatose parents. We see each kid checking on their respective parents and the Kido brothers are checking on a couple's pulses. Cameo starts at 4:47.
The Digital World ships TakariNow I'm not saying I'm advocating for Takari, but come on the Digital World gives the two kids the crest of hope and light, two Digimon who's evolution compliment one and another, and their armor Digimon have a shared attack. They even have the two kids called back for another adventure.
Apocalymon is Missing No.Apocalymon's existance causes distortion. Sound familiar? Also, in the Japanese version, the Digimon Scanner says that no one's even sure if it's even a Digimon. Missing No is filler data, and therefore considered a glitch Pokemon, or something that shouldn't exist.
Had they actually tried, the kids could have transformed any of the partners straight into Mega form.It took a few short blasts from the Digivices to grant the Champion level Leomon the ability to warp into Mega for a limited amount of time, even if Leomon was activelly training to evolve furter(something that acording to his characterization, he most likelly was doing), he would only achieve Ultimate, getting to Mega is a whole new milestone, so those quick blasts did have a huge effect on him, if the Digi Destineds had tried to channel their Digivices into a single partner at once, it would have been enough to evolve it into Mega, however, the abuse of such a power would most likelly lead the partners into reverting to a Digiegg every time they tried.
Guesses for the upcoming game adaptation.
Mr. Fujiyama is really Superman.He looks a lot like Clark Kent, with that face, hair, and glasses. But it's his incredibly fit body that gives his true identity away.
The Flashback of the Digidestined who preceded those of Adventure are actually the same Digidestined (Time Travel involved)Ryo Akiyama at some point traveled back in time and reported to Azulongmon and/or Gennai about these Digidestined's achievements which was then recorded as a legend.note This would explain why the silhouetted figures look exactly like some of the current Digidestined of Adventure.
Machinedramon was planning on betraying the other Dark Masters at some point after dealing with the DigidestinedHence might explain why (and possibly how) he returned as Millenniummon.
