** The "Digi-bowl" segment again, if you don't take it too seriously, it has a certain goofy CrazyAwesome charm to it. It's not everyday you see Terry Bradshaw interacting with Digimon.

** Remember Angemon, who was so powerful in the first season that he didn't start making regular appearances until everyone else had reached the Ultimate-level? Well now he exist to get Worfed and DNA Digivolve with Ankylomon, even when they fight against Digimon he should have a clear cut advantage over (the Daemon corps) he doesn't fare any better. [=MagnaAngemon=] initially avoids this trope at first. He actually puts up a good fight against [=BlackWarGreymon=] when no other Digimon up to that point could scratch him (and it's worth nothing that [=BlackWarGreymon=] is not actually an evil Digimon so [=MagnaAngemon=] doesn't have a special advantage, [=MagnaAngemon=] is just a really powerful Digimon) and only lost because BWG managed to cut off his power source. He then gets hit with this trope when he only appears to give his power to Imperialdramon to help fight [=SkullSatamon=] even though [=SkullSatamon=] is a Digimon that [=MagnaAngemon=] should have had no trouble walking all over.

* AssPull: The explanation about why the old kids can't use their crests. The last episode of 01 made a big deal about the kid's crests being their HEARTS, and how they could still use them after the amulets were destroyed. Apparently, they went back to the digital world somewhere between 01 and 02 and sacrificed their crests in order to rebuild the world, which came off as incredibly forced shoehorning.

Added DiffLines:

** Arukenimon herself got hit with this. She spends several episodes being built up as the new big threat, is shown having the power to create extremely powerful fake digimon out of control spires and when she first reveals herself as an Ultimate level digimon she puts up a good fight (which you'd expect from an Ultimate level fighting mostly a group of Champion strength opponents). And then the kids get their second wind and Arukenimon immediately becomes comic relief and stays that way.


** Sora's GirlinessUpgrade, either you see it as a sign of maturity and acceptance with her mother or you dislike it as she becomes flanderized into a generic girly girl and loses her unique Tomboy personality.

** A very complicated and notorious example with Sora and Matt, which continues to [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/matt-x-sorasorato-threads generate rage to this day]]. Up until the ChristmasEpisode, Sora and Matt didn't really have much of a connection or even spoke much to each other, for that matter. The hook-up just happened, without a reasonable explanation. However, [[https://twitter.com/kakudou/status/339004461424971776 Yamato and Sora were intended to be a couple from the start.]] The director, [[WordOfGod Kakudou]] pointed out that [[https://twitter.com/kakudou/status/340404941917151233 there was subtle foreshadowing for this pairing in 01]], [[https://twitter.com/kakudou/status/340757798776348672 there was never any love triangle]] and that [[http://digitalscratch.pmsinfirm.org/?p=822#08 he did not want Taichi/Sora because it was cliché]].
** In Our War Game!, Sora and Taichi are given a dynamic that somewhat resembles BelligerentSexualTension. This was the result of a RelationshipWritingFumble by Mamoru Hosoda because he was never informed on what the OfficialCouple was and thought they would end up together since the "hero always got the girl" (in this case the main character, Tai and his best friend, Sora). [[WordOfGod Hiroyuki Kakudou]] stated that he would have hinted at the budding romantic relationship between Yamato and Sora if he was in control of it and to him Taichi/Sora [[https://twitter.com/kakudou/status/340703948400885760 "doesn't exist"]]. This was complicated even more by the fact that in 02, they [[https://twitter.com/kakudou/status/344034725997998081 couldn't focus on Yamato and Sora's growing relationship much since they were now relegated to the supporting cast in the background]]. Kakudou continued to refuse any romantic development between Taichi and Sora, and Sora ultimately ended up with Yamato as planned. According to the Japanese voice actors for Gabumon and Yamato, even they were surprised.
-->'''Mayumi Yamaguchi (Gabumon)''': Honestly, Sora! If you’d spent just a few minutes to ask [Gabumon] for advice, I would have said, "Sora, don't do this to yourself. [[FanPreferredCouple It's Taichi you should go for]]."
-->'''Yuuto Kazama (Yamato)''': It's tough work taking care of Yamato, you're saying?
** As to whether the LoveTriangle actually ''exists'', the scene important to it in 02 makes the idea of whether Taichi has feelings for Sora [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation incredibly vague]]. The PSP Adventure game (which, as a Bandai rather than Toei product, is a product of questionable canonicity and potentially ''more'' DependingOnTheWriter) gives an alarming batch of mixed signals from all three parties on top of this.
** Head writer for the dub, Jeff Nimoy, openly preferred them as a pair, which [[WriterOnBoard he considered to be the more plausible couple]] and [[DubInducedPlotHole emphasized it in his writing]]. He later admitted on Twitter that [[CreatorBacklash he regrets putting his own preferences into the dub]] because of how badly it bungled the development and would have cut out the [[FanPreferredCouple Taichi/Sora]] ShipTease by replacing it with [[OfficialCouple Yamato/Sora]] instead.

** Davis' infamous crush on Kari becomes much less of an issue over time. Did he actually move on, or did he continue to harbor unstated feelings? (A ''lot'' of fanfic angst has been written on the assumption of the latter). It's worth noting that in the movie that takes place after the series, his crush does seem to still be present, although from the perspective of those who followed the English dub (as previously the dub had portrayed him as far more obsessive), it seemed more toned-down.
*** In the CD Drama ''Natsu e no Tobira'', Daisuke's feeling a little angsty that Hikari turned him down when he asked her for a date.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: ''Digimon Adventure 02'' uses a lot of its merchandise to "correct" presumed flaws in the anime's storytelling, primarily regarding a lack of Matt-Sora development. Look at the jacket art for ImageSong and other music releases and they'll be in their own little world.
** This even involves a blatant {{Retcon}} in one instance. The final image of ''Diablomon Strikes Back'' is a cast shot of the gang [[CallBack around the trolley car that took the original team home]] at the end of ''Adventure''. Taichi and Sora are sitting together atop the trolley.

*** Angewomon, whose classic Mega form is [[DragonsUpTheYinYang Holydramon]] (seen in ''[[NonSerialMovie Hurricane Touchdown]]'' and ''VideoGame/DigimonRumbleArena''), evolves into [[Anime/DigimonFrontier Ophanimon]] in ''VideoGame/DigimonBattleSpirit 1.5'' and in the ''Digimon Adventure'' PSP game. Fans are split as to whether this change makes Gatomon's evo-line [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks boring]], or even how consistent it is.

*** In an odd reverse example, [[Creator/DakariKingMykan one of the biggest Dakari supporters]] would write fics where, if Davis didn't get Kari, he would eventually die and TK and Kari would be miserable. So the one that's being shipped is the one that's dying for not getting his girl.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Interestingly averted with the Digimon Kaiser/Emperor. Fans still loved him, but never tried to justify what he did and were happy to see him turn good, but only after he'd paid for what he'd done. His terrifying vision during the final battle probably helped gain Ken some serious sympathy. It also helped that the fans didn't have to invoke this trope as the show created a perfectly reasonable backstory for why he became this way.

* FanPreferredPairing: While Sora/Yamato is canon (and personally favored by the original director of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''), many fans still prefer [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Taichi/Sora]], and you'll be more likely to find fanwork and doujinshi for that pairing. Even a few of the Japanese voice actors have stated their preference for Taichi/Sora and expressed surprise that Sora ended up with Yamato instead.
** To get an idea of how huge this discrepancy is, here's a Japanese poll from [[http://www.toei-anim.co.jp/tv/dejimon/ranking/result07.html Toei's website]]. The top-ten favorite {{duo|Tropes}}s (not necessarily couples, mind you) are, in order, [[ToyShip Takeru & Hikari]], [[ChildhoodFriendRomance Taichi & Sora]], [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl Koushirou & Mimi]], [[HoYay Taichi & Yamato]], [[HopelessSuitor Daisuke & Hikari]], Jou & Gomamon, Yamato & Gabumon, Yamato & Takeru, Yamato & Mimi, and Angemon & Angewomon. The canon couple didn't even make Runner-Up; that was Koushirou & Tentomon.

While ''02'' is far from being everybody's favourite season there, it has a surprising number of fans and is better regarded in that country than in many others. (Though there are good reasons for this: ''02'' was brought in the tail of ''Adventure'' and it benefitted a lot from the latter's original promotional campaign, to the point that most Spaniards who grew up with ''Adventure'' and ''02'' consider them one and the same by default.) More specifically, this extends to EvilIsCool as well: while Arukenimon and Mummymon are usually seen as rather meh, in Spain they are counted among the most memorable villains of the entire franchise.
