Although the Love Triangle never existed in 01, it had to be given a nod in 02 when Sora is about to confess, because Our War Game! was a canonical, vital part of the overarching story and they couldn't just couldn't pretend that it never happened. The Digimon Adventure (PSP) game explores the relationships more. It attempts to fill in the gaps of the story to remedy these problems and in order to make a graceful transition from 01 to Our War Game! to 02. A Type 5 Love Triangle has been retconned to exist in 01 now (much to Kakudou's annoyance), although it is only hinted at twice. After the Our War Game! section in the game, Taichi's conversations with Yamato and Sora reveal these affections. Yamato likes Sora, Sora likes Taichi. Taichi doesn't have feelings for either.
- Yamato has feelings for Sora and believes himself to be competing with Taichi for her affections but Taichi doesn't recognise this.
Taichi: Speaking of which, we never reached the conclusion of our fight in Digiworld.
Yamato: You wanna put an end to it? How should we do it?
Taichi: Soccer? Cooking? Karaoke?
Yamato: Thereís something else besides those, isnít there? Something more importantÖ
Yamato: Maybe you donít understand it yetÖ Nah, itís nothing.
- Sora attempts to impress Taichi by acting more feminine but she is growing frustrated with his denseness and how he only sees her as a friend.
Sora: I had an errand to run near here, so I wondered how youíve been, Taichi?
Taichi: How Iíve been? Sora, are you really quitting soccer?
Sora: Sorry. Thereís several other things I want to try, like tennisÖ
Taichi: Tennis!? That doesnít suit you at all! Keep playing soccer!
Sora: Itís fine! Iím changing my image, so Iím going to stop wearing this hat and wear a skirtÖ Hey, which do you think suits me best, that or my usual look?
Taichi: Itís not a big deal, is it? I think they both suit you fine.
Sora: Iím an idiot for asking you. Iím going home.
Taichi: Oy, Sora! What are you mad about? I donít get it!
