* DeathByIrony: The final boss is a computer programmer, as well as a cheating bastard and the most effective strategy against him is the ''Hacking'' card obtained from [=WereGarurumon=]. Its effect is to switch the HP of the two combatants if the user's level is lower.

Added DiffLines:

* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Take a look at where Rosemon is storing her cards next time you battle against her.


* ShoutOut: To VideoGame/DigimonWorld. The background of many digimon cards are the locations at Digimon World [[spoiler:(exactly where you meet them, such as [=ModokiBetamon=] at Native Forest and the card has a picture of Native Forest, etc)]]. Also, many option cards are the items from the said game, such as Fire Spot and Ice Crystal.

Added DiffLines:

* MarketBasedTitle: ''Digimon World: Digital Card Arena'' in Japan, ''Digimon: Digital Card Battle'' everywhere else. Notably (and somewhat confusingly), the Japan-only ''prequel'' was called ''Digimon World: Digital Card Battle''.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInTranslation: Babamon's deck being called "New Power deck" and the description saying it contains lots of "new cards" refer to the fact that it mostly contains cards that weren't in the prequel. Since the prequel wasn't released outside Japan, the deck name and description don't make a lot of sense in the English version.

Added DiffLines:

* NewWorkRecycledGraphics: Almost all cards that existed in the prequel were brought over completely unaltered, down to the attacks and their animations. VS splash screen images were also recycled for most Digimon that are fightable opponents in both games.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentCharacterDesignDifference: There are two Myotismon in the game: one uses the modern design, while the other uses the older, more cartoony design Myotismon originally had in ''[[VideoGame/DigimonWorld Digimon World]]''. The former is based on the Myotismon from ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure Digimon Adventure]]'', while the latter is a CallBack to the one from the Japan-only prequel to ''Digital Card Battle''.

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: Patamon was an ordinary card in the prequel that anyone could have multiple copies of in their deck. Here, it's a Partner card you can only have one copy of [[PermanentlyMissableContent (if even that)]] and only a select few opponents have it in their decks.


* DemotedToExtra: While still as PurposefullyOverpowered as they always were, the 7s Cards have gone from being vital PlotCoupons to optional cards with absolutely no bearing for the story.
