* Another good Matt moment: TK is stuck with Puppetmon and the other [=DigiDestined=] are interrogating Kiwimon, who has a butler voice in this dub. The combination of Kiwimon's laugh ("ahawhawhawhawhawhawhawhawwwwww") and Matt's following, utterly furious "ANSWER ME!" come across as gut-busting in quick succession. Perfect for out-of-context compilations.

* In one moment early on in the show, there's a clip of Matt running as he's trying to find T.K. While this isn't too bad on it's own, it's the odd fact the show [[https://youtu.be/MkW_v7end5Q?t=98 reuses this clip]], three times in a row while speeding it up each time.

* Kurata has his elements of this in ''Digimon Data Squad''. The fact that they're usually followed by him showing off what a monster he is goes to show that even [[TropesAreNotBad this trope has its merits]].

** He didn't even kick the dog - he tossed it with his foot, and the puppy just flies away in this slow, perfectly controlled, fake-looking arc, not helped by the fact that the puppy's drawing [[LimitedAnimation is recycled in every frame it does so]]. It looks like Ken was giving it a levitation lesson!

* In ''Digimon Adventure 02'', there was a Narmy scene in the Japanese version which was cut from the dub. Before his DefeatMeansFriendship, [[http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=ioqCLnLKtiE&NR=1 Ken kicks a puppy in the middle of the street]]. If the kick was more violent or stronger, then the scene wouldn't be so narmy. But not only is the kick light, but also, in the background, villainous music starts playing, and Ken gives us a villainous grin alongside a villainous sound effect. Villainous, indeed... We may never know if the scene was cut for puppy-kicking or for accidental sarcasm.

* The flashback to the Greymon Vs. Parrotmon fight in episode 29. In the pilot movie, the fight was [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/digimon/images/e/ed/Movie_1-10.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20091209222401 well drawn]], stylized with fluid animation and just overall a sight to behold for the Japanese kids that watched back in the day, or the American viewers watching the movie. In this episode, [[https://theboronheist.files.wordpress.com/2017/11/digimon-adventure-1-episode-29.jpg?w=519 it's mainly a still image]] and...well, let's just say that Greymon's eyes in the pilot [[UncannyValley don't transition well into a brighter, colorful and more limited animation style]]. Also, it looks like [[FoeYay Greymon and Parrotmon are holding hands]] instead of putting each other in a BrawlerLock.

* Typically, a Digimon's voice becomes more adult-sounding and then more bestial-sounding as he or she advances through the five (six if the tamer is lucky) EvolutionaryLevels. Sometimes, different forms of the same character have different voice actors (for instance, Agumon was voiced by Tom Fahn while his evolutionary levels were voiced by Michael Lindsay, Creator/LexLang, and in ''Anime/DigimonAdventureTri'', Creator/KyleHebert). Not so in the [[Anime/DigimonTamers third season.]] The voices remain the same as their childlike "rookie" forms throughout. For Renamon, whose voice is that of an adult woman, it's perfectly fine. But for the high-pitched Guilmon and Terriermon, it's hard to take their voices seriously when they're coming from [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot cyborg dinosaurs and rabbits]]. It's also the ''only'' Digimon dub to do this. Thankfully, this tends to grow on the viewer quite a bit.
