* The non-chosen children live in a pretty sad situation. They know there's this wonderful world full of magic, monsters, and adventure... and they can't live in it.


* Oddly enough, [[spoiler: [[AlasPoorVillain Arbormon's]] death]] in episode 20, "From Dawn To Duskmon". While a ruthless enemy, seeing him in his last moments mercilessly killed by someone he considered a comrade is a bit sad.

* The finale of Anime/DigimonFrontier. Say what you want about the series, the finale was well done, with the kids saving Kouichi at the last possible moment. And then the scenes of their lives afterwards, Takuya appreciating his family more, Kouji respecting his step-mother and giving her flowers for her birthday, Zoe/Izumi and JP/Junpei finding friendship, Tomoki/Tommy being friends with the boys who used to bully him, and Kouji meeting his birth mother again with Kouichi's help - not to mention all six friends in the ending shot promising to be friends forever...ugh. And to top it off, it looked like the franchise was done at time of the finale, so to see the animators pull of a great finale out of an uneven season was nothing short of amazing.
