This section covers Digimon Xros Wars, or Digimon Fusion in the US. For WMG regarding the entire franchise, go here. For WMGs specific to another work, go to the following: Anime
Digimon in Xros Wars don't digivolve like they do in other series.Judging by the first episode, the usual level system doesn't even apply here, with Shoutmon, who would likely be a Child digimon in any of the other series, beating up Ultimate-level digimon like Mammothmon. So, one can logically infer from this that since digimon aren't bound by levels and strength, they don't evolve like they do in previous series, and are thus in a more nebulous state where any digimon can take on another, as long as they're strong/tough enough.
Digimon don't naturally digivolve in this show.We've only seen MadLeomon do anything close to it, and that's through something abhorrent like absorbing his own minions. What's more, he doesn't become a new digimon, he just takes on new forms in a bizarre, nightmarish version of Mega Manning. Perhaps digimon in this universe don't evolve at all, and exist in the same forms they always do, accounting for the different accounting for strength levels mentioned above. The only ways to "digivolve" are MadLeomon's method, or by using DigiXros.
It takes a special digimon to produce a unique form by way of DigiXros.Like MadLeomon's method mentioned above, sometimes we don't see any dramatic change in a digimon when they DigiXros; in the case of MailBirdramon's combination with Golemon, and the sword form from Starmon and the Pickmonz, DigiXros just produces Mix-and-Match Critters. To create a drastically new digimon, you need a digimon that's special in some way, like Shoutmon, or Kiriha's Greymon. This might explain why MailBirdramon wanted Kiriha to call out Greymon in episode 3 - he knows they'll get more impressive results than they would have with some random goon.
Partway through the series Taiki and Kiriha's digivices get upgradedallowing Shoutmon X5 and Deckergreymon to digivolve ( omegaShoutmon and seigGreymon).
Xros Heart will recruit many more digimon into their army, and Zenjirou and Akari will Take a Level in Badass and get their own Xros Loaders.As the series goes on, it will become apparent to the heroes that their army just isn't big enough to face the might of the Bagura empire. Therefore, they will have to recruit many more digimon along the way, and form a proper army. Eventually, the army will be too big for Taiki to handle by himself, so Zenjirou and Akari get their own Xros Loaders to help with Digi Xrossing.
Nene is an adult.Her manner of addressing Taiki by his full name and her very scorning, up personality is not by ego or even being an Ojou, but because she's actually Older Than They Look - she's an adult, and through some kind of bug or mistake or Applied Phlebotinum, she's in child form.
Akari will get a weapon like Zenjirou.Only, instead of a BFS, she will wield a BFG. It's already been established that she's good at shooting thanks to playing games with her brother, so this only makes sense.
Cutemon is more important than she lets on.Why else would Dorulumon be so concerned for her safety that he not only panics whenever she wanders out of sight, but keeps constantly on the move? Obviously, Cutemon has some significance to the plot at hand, and has likely made several enemies that require Dorulumon to keep a constant vigil. Most likely scenario is that she holds one of the fragments of the Crown and is some sort of royalty; a Digimemory is also possible, considering they appear to exist in this continuity.
Leviamon betrayed the Demon LordsMany years ago he changed sides and helped to defeat them, explaining why his data is available in the digimemory. Most likely he envied the friendship shared between the good guys during that time, and wanted to experience it too.
Taiki will, at some stage, DigiXros Shoutmon and himself. ..either as Shoutmon x5, Taiki x2 or whatever.
They will introduce Digivolution but will still include DigiXros-ing.What's to say that they'll fight a stronger force, far stronger than their current DigiXros forms could handle. What do they do? Digivolve of course! They then DigiXros with their Digivolved forms! Don't also forget that Cutemon has a mysterious power.
Lilithmon will betray the Bagura Army, steal the Code Crown, and become the Final Big BadShe's a Demon Lord, who all tend to be either Big Bads (Lucemon, Barbamon, and V-Tamer Daemon) or independent villains (Beelzemon, Belphemon, and Anime Daemon) It would be a waste to have her just be a lowly minion to a new Digimon.
Baalmon is, or will become, BeelzemonThe two have a number of physical similarities. They both have an eye in their forehead, their hair is a similar color, and their left arms share a similar design, right down to the red scarf. The Other Wiki also notes a Real Life mythology link: the demon Beelzebub once went by another name when it was a diety. That name? Baal Zebub.
Shoutmon might become an evil king
Nene is evil, Kiriha was a bait and switch.Kiriha was a decoy as an antagonist, Nene has spent her time behind the scenes, manipulating everybody. Her appearance at the end of episode 11 is my best evidence... She reveals a Black Xros Loader and gives Kiriha the options of join her or die.
Tactimon will be the first Baruga General to die.In tradition the first of the Quirky Miniboss Squad to fight the digidestined are usually the first to die.
Taiki and Kiriha will perform a combined Digi Xros.Regular Digi Xros seems to involve the law of diminishing returns (Shoutmon X4 is just X3 with a sword, and adding in Knightmon doesn't even bump it up to X5, just X4 Knight Mode). Eventually Taiki will reach a point where adding in more Digimon simply doesn't make the Digi Xros noticeably stronger, or may simply reach an upper limit on the number of Digimon he can fuse into a single being. At that point, the natural next step is to add in the power of a second Xros Loader.
Baalmon is secretly trying to depose of the Baruga GeneralsHe was secretly spying on Lilithmon on her abilities, and was probably observing the other generals, and their powers. He'll probably try to kill them when they're weakened, and assume control of the Bagura Army.
Either the final arc or a movie will be a crossover between every seriesEach world's Digital World will overlap in some time compression-like manner and one candidate from each series (ala the Sentai Anniversary team ups) will come together to help Taiki stop whatever force is doing this, ala the opening to the show where you can see past Chosen Children standing behind Taiki. Besides, wouldn't it be awesome?
The Digital World in this show isn't based on technology......it's based on sounds. I believe that instead of being based on the internet and other types of electronics, this digital world is based off of sounds. Like Dorulumon is based off a drill sound, and Shoutmon is the personification of shouts. Hell Cutemon could be based on the sound Kyuu he makes when he ends his sentences. It would also explain digixros. A song or sound can't really "evolve" aside from getting louder or longer. But sounds can mix and combine, or xros, into new sounds. This makes even more sense considering Digi-Melody's, and the Xros Loader's function of creating mon's from sounds. The toy scans sounds in real life and creates digimon from them. It would also be a good justification for this season's changes. The reason Xros Wars is different is because the entire base of the world is!
MadLeomon will suffer Redemption Equals DeathBecause Leomon always ends up on the hero's side...and then dies.
Dark Knightmon will do a Heel-Face TurnSpecifically, a defeat will result in Heel-Face Brainwashing which will split him into much less evil Skull Knightmon and Deadly Axemon. Dark Knightmon will remain as his Superpowered Evil Side, but there are other Digi Xros forms Nene can use to join them together without Dark Knightmon returning.
Bagramon is Baalmon's fatherBoth have a history with holiness but were later Face Heel Turned to evilness (according to Bagramon's backstrory)? Check. Both being Demon Lord Digimon (Works with Baalmon in his Beelzebumon form)? Check. Digimon known to be able to reproduce in Xros Wars (Cutemon and his parents)? Check. Baalmon's bottommost origins being unclear? Check. I'm calling a Luke, I Am Your Father on this one
Shoutmon will have a form called Shoutmon X5KBSIf not X5 then a higher number.
The Digital World split into zones because of humanity's interferenceWhen humans began to utilize the digital world for their own means, they only used a part of it. Because they're being used, the land and digimon in those areas had to be broken down into pure data, similar to what happens in the digital space between zones. Because of our growing technological prowess we threatened to utilize the entire digital world for our own technology, so the world was split into the multiple different zones, and the area used by humans was severed from the rest of the zones.
Nene is a Twilight fangirlShe did name her team 'Team Twilight', after all.
Digimon can't evolve naturally because of the split status of the Digital WorldIt's kinda like the control spires or something. Basically, shattering the world also broke the natural cause of data changing and evolving, instead it can only combine with more data. Presumably, once the world is put back together, DigiXros will be impossible, but normal evolution will be restored.
Taiki will eventually DigiXros every member of Xros Heart.The end result will probably be called Shoutmon X∞ or something. It will be a mess.
The Digital World's God is evil, and is currently sealed/sleeping.Bagramon's profile states that he made a Face-Heel Turn in the past because he was despaired by God's evil justice. This implies that there is a God of the Digital World in this series, and also implies that he is not a nice guy. This could result in a traditional Man Behind the Man in the form of God Is Evil. I also think that the sundering of the Digital World into separate Zones has caused the Digital God to go into some sort of sleep mode or othervise made him unable to act - why would he let Bagramon run about conquering Zones if he still would be active? Near the end of the series, the Digital World will probably be pulled together, which will awaken God and initiate the True Final Boss battle.
Blue Flare will disbandBased on the image of Greyknightsmon, I predict Mailbirdramon crosses to x6
The reason Matadormon liked Akari's cake in Episode 28 was because she added water.That's right, ordinary water. Laced with a little LSD.
Cutemon will return as Turuiemon.They look similar, and it would be awesome if maybe Cutemon did some training with the inhabitants of what used to be Shinobi Zone, and became a badass ninja who can hold his own in a fight.
Digivolution is harder than it used to be, and Xrosing is easier.Shoutmon's difficulty with maintaining his Digixros and now his evolution to OmegaShoutmon indicate that this situation is reversing. It's interesting to note that the figure who gave Taiki his Xros Loader was the fully-digivolved AND Jogress evolved Omegamon/Omnimon. Consider that Shoutmon's first evolution required the powers of Courage and Friendship from non-Generals Akari and Zenjirou respectively. This indicates that in any other series, they would have been full-blown Digidestined. It's also interesting that many of the standard character traits are associated with a character of the opposite gender from the original (Akari is courage, Kiriha is Love). Probably Akari would have had Cutemon and Zenjirou would have had Ballistamon. (Perhaps Kiriha would have had Dorulumon instead of Greymon?) In anycase, the new formula really allowed them to mix things up this season, and there's no indication that they're going to stop now.
Greymon will evolve with The Power of Love.Remember when Deckerdramon joined Kiriha because he was said to have the greatest love out of all the Xros Loader holders? And Love was also one of the Crests in season one along with Courage and Friendship, which caused Shoutmon to evolve. This foreshadows how Kiriha's Greymon will evolve after the Time Skip. That leads to one guestion... are there crests that correspond with Nene and Yuu, and if yes, what they are?
Yuu is The ChessmasterAnd he's been running a Batman Gambit since the beginning of the series. He made DarkKnightmon manipulate Nene by claiming he was being held hostage when in fact he was the head of the operation. He ordered DarkKnightmon to use Nene as a tool to get him the Darkness Loader, which he most likely needs for some scheme in the future; possibly he wanted it to be able to use it against Taiki. As an additional WMG, he's most likely also been allied with Bagramon the whole time, considering he's seen in the Bagra Army HQ at the end of episode 30. His future role will most likely be The Dragon for Bagramon.
Beelzebumon and Mervamon will have a DigiXrosThis is based on their side by side proximity in the group pose for the opening, and the fact that they both have arm weapons on opposite sides, meaning a potential DigiXros could be fittingly symmetrical.
Tactimon was Killed Off for RealUnlike Neptunemon, MadLeomon, and AncientVolcanomon who died in the Digital World and were reborn, Tactimon was killed in the real world. Like in Digimon Adventure, dying in the Digital World is temporary while dying in the real one is permant.
Tactimon's sword will have plot relevance when the protagonists fight ApollomonOf course, for this to happen, the sword has to return to the Digital World. As to how that will happen is anyone's guess, but I'd guess Bagramon might want to have it back, and we know he can open a portal between the human world and the Digital World with his Super Dimensional Storm. For the main WMG itself. Consider this: The Sun, as we all should know by now, is a star. Tactimon's sword is said to be able to split stars in half. And amongst the Death Generals we have someone whose motif is the Sun, who is based on a Sun god and who is most likely the last Death General they will fight. My guess is that they will somehow use Tactimon's sword for their advantage angainst Apollomon. A sun splitting sword and a sun god Digimon? To me, that sounds a little too convenient to miss.
When, and IF, Xros Wars gets an English dub for American audiences, it will air on Nickelodeon.Think about it. Since Haim Saban repurchased the Power Rangers franchise last year, which lead to the airing of Power Rangers Samurai, it doesn't seem farfetched that this season of Digimon (which is another franchised previously held by Saban) will air on Nick.
DarkKnightmon and JetMervamon will have their own digivolutions.Now, what with the Adventure parallels, I wouldn't be surprised if only Shoutmon and MetalGreymon got them, just as how only Agumon and Gabumon warp digivolved. However:
DarkKnightmon used to be a Royal Knight.If his brother, Bagramon, used to be a high-ranking angel before rebelling against God and falling from heaven, as his bacground information states, it makes sense that DarkKnightmon, being a knightlike Digimon, was a Royal Knight before turning into darkness along with his brother.
In Xros Wars all of Digimon is canon and realIt's the only explanation I can come up with that explains Digimemories in the way their described. We've seen dozens of various low and mid level digimon throughout the seasons. Enough to know that the only way an agumon could be considered a legendary digimon is if it was Ty's Agumon and not just one off the streets. The same goes for patamon. They're fairly common but the patamon that became Holy Angemon? That's a horse of a different color. Unless it's sheer unadulterated not supposed to make sense inverse just for us stuff it doesn't make sense.
Shoutmon is a direct descendant of Omnimon/Omegamon.It's almost certainly not a father/son relationship, but think about it. Who gave Taiki the Xros Loader when Shoutmon was in danger of dying? Omnimon. Not to mention it took the powers of courage and friendship to get Shoutmon to actually evolve, the crests associated with Omnimon's components. Plus Shoutmon evolves into OmegaShoutmon, after all. And his armor is called the Omega Inforce. There's parallels between Shoutmon and most of the previous leader Digimon, but wouldn't it be cool if Omnimon was trying to ensure that a descendant carrying his strength and good heart became king of the digital world?
Xros Wars is an AU of AdventureI for one, am gonna coin the idea that this is a future-based AU of Adventure where the digidestined never went to the digital world, the code crown and zones being the result as the digimon took longer to stand up to evil than the digidetined canonically did. Things would have changed in the human world also; Everyone's personality would turn out at least moderately different, and most of the Destined would barely know each other, if at all, save for those who knew each other well before 'the summer camp incident' such as Tai and Sora. Yes, Omnimon/Omegamon would probably be the same one, there's no proof Agumon and Gabumon couldn't and wouldn't have digivolved like that naturally. I'll admit to next to no reasoning behind this other than the many parallels of Adventure and Xros Wars and that this sounds like a cool fanfic idea. NOTE - more proof found: No 01 digidestined would indirectly leave the 2 world unsynchonised, meaning that the years in the human world could translate to hundereds in the digital world. Original Adventure and Xros Wars are the only seasons to have had the hero return to the real world for a day, then, upon going back to the digital world, find months have passed.
Why Shoutmon X7 is, well, 7This isn't so much a WMG as common sense, people wonder why it's X7 and why they skipped X6, etc etc. I think everybody's been forgetting that a certain member of that fusion was already Xrosed, so the basic components of X7 break down to such:
Apollomon is Xros Wars's LeomonSince the evil lions don't count (like Panjamon in Frontier and SaberLeomon in Savers) this season's literal Sacrificial Lion isn't Mad Leomon as TV Tropes originally believed, but rather Apollomon. Though at this point, it's not so much guessing as it is so obvious that the only surprising outcome would be subverting the trope.
Somebody's gonna punch Yuu in the face.By the end of the series, either Taiki or Kiriha are going to punch him, or Nene's going to slap him. Because that little brat really deserves it.
"D5" stands for "Digimon 5" or "Digital World 5"And this further means the 5 universes of Digimon anime: The Adventure universe, Tamers universe, Frontier universe, Savers universe and the Xros Wars universe itself. "Bringing destruction to all worlds" means destroying or othervise heavily damaging all 5 universes, or possibly crashing them all together or opening portals between all of them. This theory is inspired by a similar theory I saw on a forum.
Alphamon was the very first to DigixrosHis combination with Owlryumon was not called a jogress and did not create a new monster but gave one the qualities of the other, just like Digixross. MusoKnightmon is a shout out to this.
Taiki is the son of Taichi Yagami or Daisuke Motomiya.We've never seen his dad and he resembles them a hell of a lot more than the other goggle boys. Plus it would explain a lot.
In the sequel, the time differential between the two worlds has changed.Which is how Taiki and Yuu can age a few years but Shoutmon only seems to have reached adolescence in the preview picture. Given that the title seems to reference TIME as well, it certainly seems like a possibility.
Xros Wars will end in a Sequel Hook.The next season's first episode airs only a week after the last episode of this one. Considering how closely they appear to be linked, it's certainly a possibility that the first season will end in a Sequel Hook to pave the second one. Perhaps after the Final Boss is beaten, a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere will arrive and fling Taiki into the future (seeing how the next series is supposed to be about Time Travel). Or the Final Boss does it himself while he's dying.
The sequel will introduce a transforming DigiXros.DigiXros is basically an Homage to Combining Mecha, so the most obvious way to ramp things up for the sequel is to bring in the Tranforming Mecha trope as well.
There will be an Everybody Lives ending.Pretty much a given, but consider: the Code Crown can bring Digimon back from the dead. It can also purify them. Given how optimistic this series is, Taiki and Shoutmon will likely bring back everyone who got killed during the series as good Digimon, and everything will be good and dandy in the digital world. Well, until the sequel.
The gimmick of the next season will be Digi Xros between humans and Digimon.In the promotional poster for the next season, each character only seems to have one partner Digimon instead of an entire army, while still having Xros Loaders. Their Xros Loaders will be upgraded to allow Digi Xros between humans and Digimon, making the series as a whole a Shout-Out to Digimon Tamers and Digimon Frontier.
Shoutmon will get two new Digivolved froms after OmegashoutmonThey did in other Digimon shows.
The seven death generals will make some sort of reappearance, perhaps in the finaleThis may be a bit late, but I first got the idea when I saw dobrickmon's data being sent to wherever all of the negative enegery is going. The show's not over yet, though.
Super-evolved Digimon can't Xros under normal circumstances.I don't recall whether this was actually stated or not, but Shoutmon DX and Shoutmon X7 were only available to use after somebody gave up their lives. Before those points, nobody had tried to Xros OmegaShoutmon or ZeekGreymon, which would have been a pretty good idea, so more likely than not they couldn't do so, and required an extra boost of energy to enable the Xros Loaders' ability to do that.
Shoutmon's Xros forms represent the development of anime mechas over time.Each of the forms offers Shout Outs to different mechas, starting with such classics of the genre such as Getter Robo and Mazinger Z, and eventually moving to GaoGaiGar with X7 and possibly Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann or Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with the Final Xros (With the whole concept of a massive, all out gattai. Arguably Xros Wars goes surpasses Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with the Final Xros as far as the gattai itself is considered, due to the whole "combine with every Digimon alive" thing.
General Level Guessing
ZekeGreymon's name is a reference to Metal Gear ZEKEWhile also pulling the Pun on the German word "sieg" (victory).
The Death Generals' power levels are dependant on their amount of hair
Digivolution Lines For The Main CastIt is shown in newer episodes that Digimon Digivolve, thus I am now making lines for theme
