Added DiffLines:

** Rasielmon. A clairvoyant LittleBitBeastly angel in gold armor. Has the same type as Ophanimon, but uses ElementalPowers and ConfusionFu instead of the HolyHandGrenade. Mega level.
** [=LovelyAngemon=]. A MagicalGirlWarrior angel that prefers hand-to-hand combat and has HeartBeatDown powers. Its Reference Book description reads like a ''Pretty Cure'' character. Mega level.

Added DiffLines:

* SIPrefixName: Subverted by Gigadramon and Megadramon, whose power levels are...exactly the same.


The franchise cultivates a sort of {{Multiverse}}; with a few exceptions (most famously ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' having two anime sequels) and barring the occasional IntercontinuityCrossover, each entry, even within the same media series, takes place in a different AlternateContinuity. Thus, although certain themes and elements such as the Digital World are franchise staples, the rules of the universe are subject to change depending on the work. The franchise itself is also subject to quite a large amount of WorldBuilding regarding the nature of Digimon and the Digital World, which may or may not be used in different ways. On a story level, the BondCreature premise leads to ThePowerOfFriendship being a common theme.

Licensing-wise, the franchise has generally fallen under the umbrella of [[Creator/BandaiNamcoEntertainment Bandai Namco]], but the anime has been in sketchier territory; the rights originally belonged to Creator/SabanEntertainment before being shifted to {{Creator/Disney}} after its dissolution in 2003. Disney handled the franchise's dubbing for a period until Creator/SabanBrands reacquired the English rights to the franchise in 2012. The dub as a whole, however, was subject to KeepCirculatingTheTapes during periods of non-airing, as it never received a formal home video release until New Video Group's DVD releases in 2013. Official subtitles of [[BlindIdiotTranslation volatile quality]] are few and far between, with ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', ''Anime/DigimonTamers'', and ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' being streamed by {{Creator/Netflix}}, {{Creator/Funimation}}, {{Creator/Hulu}}, and Website/{{Crunchyroll}} respectively.

* AudienceShift: Although ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' was the first significant work to be aimed at older audiences rather than just children, it was still intended to sell kids' toys and aired on children's network programming, and was thus created in the hopes of being a kids' show that teens and adults could get into. However, starting with ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldReDigitize'', ''Digimon'' entries took a notable shift away from the children's block to aim at the adults who grew up with ''Digimon'' instead, with ''VideoGame/DigimonStoryCyberSleuth'' (a game that was the first in the franchise to receive a CERO rating of B, meaning children were shut out of the game entirely), ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldNextOrder'', and ''VideoGame/DigimonSurvive'' following suit. The staff for ''Cyber Sleuth'' indicated that this was because the franchise didn't sell with kids anymore. Since then, this has become a ZigZaggedTrope, as ''Digmon'' media after ''Anime/DigimonAdventureLastEvolutionKizuna''[[note]]Which some have interpreted as the franchise--or at least its anime adaptations--telling older fans to move on.[[/note]] seemingly shifted back into primarily trying to appeal to children, as shown with a newer card game getting released alongside [[Anime/DigimonAdventure2020 a reboot]] of ''Digimon Adventure''.

* BigBad: Lord Demon for ''V-Tamer''. Apocalymon for ''Adventure'', ''02'' had [[HijackedByGanon Myotismon/Vamdemon return]] as the cause of everything that happened in ''02''. ''Frontier'' had Lucemon. ''Savers'' is an odd case -- while Kurata dies long before the final episode, his destructive actions are causing the entire endgame mess; Yggdrasil is only acting. ''Xros Wars'' has Bagramon. The Wonderswan series had Milleniumon.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: Digimon as a franchise tends to sample foreign words for its monsters' names. Which can cause problems when the franchise insists on translating these same words into Japanese kana and ''then'' into English text. You get official names like "Orgemon" for what should be "''Ogre''mon". Probably the most amusing is when the Digimon [=SlashAngemon=] was given the name ''Slush''Angemon for ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars''.

* BornAgainImmortality: With the exception of ''Tamers'' and ''Xros Wars'', all Digimon have Type IV. When killed, they normally turn into digi-eggs and are reborn (though it varies as to if they remember their past life or not, even within the same season). Myotismon from ''Adventure'' had a different type in that his soul just kept coming back in a stronger body till it was destroyed. A plot point in ''Savers'' was that Kurata found a way to rob Digimon of this, making him able to kill them off for good. In ''Xros Wars'', they remain dead unless someone resurrects them or they can maintain a form of memory.

** ''Anime/DigimonSavers'': [[spoiler:The Digital Gate has to be closed for a while for safety reasons and the Digimon will be returning to the Digital World to help recovery efforts there. After a night in which everyone's allowed to give their farewells to their partners, Masaru finally decides to give a middle finger to series tradition and join Agumon in the Digital World, where they protect the peace together. Since the gate is under DATS's control, the closing has a decidedly less final tone than the others (especially since the theme of the series is the hope of creating a world where Digimon and humans can live together, making it feel like the ending was there for tradition more than anything else).]]

* CallingYourAttacks: A series staple. ''Tamers'' features the humans doing this as well as the Digimon with the Card Slash feature. ''Savers'' actually had to have the BridgeBunnies call their partners' attacks, as they were [[TheVoiceless mute]]. In the Japanese version, it's [[AvertedTrope averted]] in all the movies except the ''Frontier'' one; no-one calls attacks at all in them. Xros Wars has the names of the called attacks shown in the bottom of the screen.

** Nanimon is Oyajitchi from sister series Franchise/{{Tamagotchi}}, with a new name and a pair of sunglasses to try to make him look cooler. The anime redesigned him to look a bit more like a wrestler, but the v-pet uses a barely altered sprite. Unlike many examples, Bandai outright admitted it was done as an in-joke.

* CharacterFocus: The show may be titled "Digimon", but make no mistake, it's about the humans. Most allied Digimon only serve either to reflect their human partners or serve as {{Foil}}s.

* ContinuitySnarl: The earliest seasons of Digimon suffer from this, in particular because it seemed nobody stopped to compare notes. ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' stands fine on its own, but ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' suffered from introducing plot elements that nearly all turned into plot ''holes'', especially those involving the cast from the first adventure. Not helping things is the VideoGame/DigimonWonderswanSeries, the first three entries of which (and so, three different adventures[[note]]The third also features Wallace, the star of 02's NonSerialMovie[[/note]]) take place between Adventure and 02, and the fourth bridges continuity with ''Anime/DigimonTamers''. On top of that, at least two video games, ''VideoGame/DigimonRumbleArena'' and ''VideoGame/DigimonBattleSpirit'', have vague continuity with all three franchises.

** Savers: An interdimensional collision is the impending threat, which [[ExpendableAlternateUniverse Yggdrasil considers hardly a loss]].
** Next: The Digital World's GodEmperor (Yggdrasil) dies, the entire universe gets destroyed and remade by [[DeusEstMachina NEO]].

** Subverted in ''Xros Wars'', where Bagramon is still considered the final threat. [[spoiler: Bagramon is actually a rather impressive ''triple'' subversion.

* EmotionEater: All of the Digimon outside of the videogames feed on human emotion as the canon explanation to where a Digimon gets power from its human. This is inherent to all of the anime and most of the manga, but made most explicit in ''Anime/DigimonSavers''. In a bit of a subversion, the humans whose emotions are eaten typically aren't harmed by this process alone (though Digimon will often kidnap or exploit humans for their feelings) -- but Digimon can be poisoned if they get fed an emotion that doesn't agree with their nature (hence: Dark Evolution).
* TheEnd: Keeping the pattern of title cards at the end of episodes, ''Xros Wars'' ended with a card that said "owari" (おわり).

* EvolutionaryLevels: A big thing in the franchise, although with the six levels being treated as stages of growth it's probably closer to MetamorphosisMonster. Has some overlap with PowerLevels, though exceptions abound. The Story games, in a moment of mixed awesome and humor, once featured a Minomon (a Level 2 digimon) who had undergone so much TrainingFromHell that it equalled Impeprialdramon Paladin Mode. Notably, ''Xros Wars'' mostly abandoned the system.

Supposedly the "closest" to Yggdrasil, Shakamon (based on the Buddha) is responsible for the Eastern Digital World's protection... and its ordeals, both of which are because of its love for the Digimon. It is said to be meaningless to fight Shakamon, who will subvert and disperse any "evil" intent.

In ''Xros Wars'' the main kids never get help outside, but they do have armies of Digimon to use.

In addition, Mimi, Palmon, Joe, Gomamon (all from ''Adventure''), and Rika and Renamon (''Tamers'') also appear in that set of episodes.

* LighterAndSofter: The character designs for the Digimon themselves have been cleaned up considerably in more recent incarnations. While earlier designs featured a lot of details such as chipped nails and teeth, scarred flesh, tarnished metal, bulging veins, tattered wings and general asymmetry, newer designs tend to eschew those details and place more emphasis on roundness and polished surfaces.

** Some non-standard PowerLevels themselves are prone to this, namely [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Armors]] and [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Hybrids]]. (Anime/DigimonXrosWars looks at your PowerLevels and [[SuperRobot laughs]]). To take the armor example, a generally good rule of thumb is that the vast majority of armors have a mean power range between Champion and Ultimate, whereas the Golden Digi-Eggs (Miracles and [[NonSerialMovie Destiny]]) range from Ultimate to Mega. In the card game, however, Magnamon is treated roughly equivalent to a Champion due to the nature of the game mechanics (a specific type of evolution getting you a Mega-equivalent from a Rookie would certainly skew the game); in the games, he can generally be counted on to rumble with other Ultimates; and in his [[Anime/DigimonSavers Royal Knights]] incarnation, he's on par with Mega.

* PurelyAestheticGender: Despite the fact that Digimon may look male ([[MonsterClown Piedmon]]) or female (Ladydevimon), because they are all made of data, they simply appear as they do. No Digimon actually has a "true" gender, this rule is kept in the card games and video games at least. The animated series apply it more as Digimon lack true sexual division, but may identify as a gender. ''Frontier'' seems to avert the trope entirely and ''Xros Wars'' averts it unmistakably.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Not necessarily a spelling issue, but there are inconsistencies even on this very wiki over whether to use the English dub names or the original Japanese names, mainly because there is quite a lot of NostalgiaFilter over growing up with the dub despite (or because of) the occasional CutAndPasteTranslation. The Japanese version has recently amassed a fanbase, and both are widely accepted in their own right. It is generally optimal for fandom members to familiarize themselves with both sets of terms for minimum confusion. It doesn't help that some of the English names are plagued by {{Engrish}}; for instance "[=LoadKnightmon=]" (seen in ''Savers''), whose correct name would be "[=LordKnightmon=]" or "[=RhodoKnightmon=]" (a pun on "rhodonite"). It ''also'' doesn't help that multiple names are used even in English, like when the dub of ''Frontier'' named this very same Digimon as "Crusadermon".

* AudienceShift: Although ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' was the first significant work to be aimed at adults rather than children, it was still intended to sell kids' toys and aired on children's network programming, and was thus created in the hopes of being a kids' show that teens and adults could get into. However, starting with ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldReDigitize'', Digimon entries took a notable shift away from the children's block to aim at the adults who grew up with ''Digimon'' instead, with ''VideoGame/DigimonStoryCyberSleuth'' (a game that was the first in the franchise to receive a CERO rating of B, meaning children were shut out of the game entirely), ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', ''VideoGame/DigimonWorldNextOrder'', and ''VideoGame/DigimonSurvive'' following suit. The staff for ''Cyber Sleuth'' indicate that this is because the franchise simply can't sell with kids anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: When a digimon is forced to evolve under the influence of intense negative emotions or dark powers it will cause a Dark Digivolution, which creates a violent monster whose only instinct is to destroy everything around it.

* PlotArmor: With a few exceptions, the humans practically never have to worry about being in danger during fights.

* StarfishAliens: The Digimon themselves. Sure, they tend to have mostly human behaviors, but they're pretty unusual: They're data-based (as opposed to matter), each subspecies have radically different and varying forms, and even each individual has different forms through their life! They also change said forms instantly, changing in shape and size in seconds (and without regard to biology). Even stranger is that Digimon seem to lack individual names. In fact, most Digimon of the same subspecies are almost indistinguishable from each other. The Digignomes and the D-Reaper also count.\\\
Inverted, in that from the point of view of the Digimon, humans are StarfishAliens. When Sora explains that on Earth there are hundred of kids, Biyomon visualizes hundreds and hundred of Soras. Later, Patamon states how weird humans are to Digimon.

* HumanFocusedAdaptation: Practically every work in the franchise puts more focus on the human characters and human world than the titular Digimon themselves, which is very jarring as the Digital World usually has its own society and culture treated like window dressing as a result while the Digimon themselves are ''fully sapient beings''. Any story that actually develops Digimon as their own character is usually a DayInTheLimelight or a work that completely removes any human involvement like ''Digimon X-Evolution'' and ''Digimon World 4''. The result is that usually the Digimon partners are {{Satellite Character}}s ''at best'', CharacterFocus being mainly reserved for the human characters while the HumansAreSpecial trope get abused so much that it is often the reason why the human world is dragged into the Digital World's conflicts. [[SarcasmMode The human world being in danger is the only cause that we should mostly care about, it is not like the Digital World being in crisis usually causes this sort of scenario to happen in the first place]].

* HumansAreSpecial: Somehow, maybe because their networks created or expedited the Digital World, humans have a huge influence over the Digimon from evolutions to raising eggs. It seems that [[MugglesDoItBetter Humans Do It Better]] then most Digimon can do it on their own. In the Digital World, it takes a Digimon an unfeasibly long time to evolve on their own. Hundreds of thousands to millions of years to achieve the Champion or Mega level. Whereas if they bond with a human partner they can evolve in a matter of days or weeks. Hence why some Digimon, wanting to become stronger, ''are so determined'' to either [[ThisIsMyHuman abduct a human]], or escape to the human world.

*** In the v-pet, Devidramon has a design almost identical to [[Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah Destoroyah]], with the few missing details being a result of the tiny sprites used in the toy. He was redesigned to look more like Devimon with Greymon's head later.

** ''DigimonAdventure'': Matt and TK from Adventures may have their Japanese Names based on Yamato-Takeru, a legendary prince who fought many battles in his fathers name. Matt fought mostly to protect TK. Also, Yamato-Takeru turned into a great white bird at his death. Angemon, anyone?
