1[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Digidestined]]²!!Taichi "Tai" Kamiya²²[[quoteright:220:]]²²Tai is the first season's leader, and bearer of the Crest of Courage. He's a reckless blockhead at times, willing to jump into anything, and this gets him into serious trouble when he gets the idea in his head that, since the Digital World is digital, he can't be killed. The realization that this isn't the case freezes him right in his tracks, and when he overcomes it, he makes the proper jump from "not afraid" to "courageous." Despite his recklessness, he's a warm, encouraging guy, very friendly, and the team just doesn't work without him.²²It was because Tai picked the Agumon card in this timeline that open the rifts to pokearth, and Tai feels responsible for bringing such chaos to another world.²²* AnimeHair: One of anime's famous examples²* BerserkButton: Upon learning Myotismon's army set up a bounty on Kari, Tai charged out to Saffron seeking her out.²* BigBrotherInstinct: He'll go crazy when Kari is in danger. She's also the only one who convince him everyone needed rest after fighting Venom Myotismon then go after the Dark Masters²* BigEater: When the Pokemon Center allowed them free food for being heroes, boy did Tai and Agumon took advantage of this!²* TheHero: Of the Franchise/{{Digimon}} side²* GogglesDoNothing: The progenitor of this trend, by proxy of Digimon V-Tamer 01.²* FearlessFool: Willing to charge into battle with little thought.²* FigureItOutYourself: Just like in the anime, when Tai asked Piximon how to bet the Dark Masters, the little pixie just replied him with this.²* {{Hotblooded}}: Why else is his digimon fiery?²* HeroicBSOD: Upon his arrival into a Pokemon Center, he is reminded of hospitals. Fans who remember a certain episode during the Machinedramon mini-arc will recall why.²* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Holds the burden for starting the Mon Wars.²* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Matt's blue. ²* ShonenHair: Even more apparent nowadays without his goggle-strap-reinforced headband to hold it up.²* TheAtoner: Feels responsible for bringing in the digimon to Pokearth, as he choose the wrong card²²!!Agumon²²[[quoteright:204:]]²²Tai's Digimon partner, who resembles an orange baby Tyrannosaurus. Like most, he has a personality similar to his Digidestined partner, if a little less hot-headed.²²His digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Koromon(Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Agumon (Fire-type)²** '''Champion''': Greymon (Fire-type)²** '''Ultimate''': [=MetalGreymon=] (Fire/Steel-type)²** '''Mega''': [=WarGreymon=] (Dragon/Steel)²²* ArtificialLimbs: [=MetalGreymon=]'s left arm is mechanical.²* BishonenLine: [=WarGreymon=]²* ChestBlaster: [=MetalGreymon=]²* {{Cyborg}}: [=MetalGreymon=]²* DeadlyUpgrade: [=SkullGreymon=], has yet to be brought into the web series yet²* DemBones: [=SkullGreymon=]²* DragonsAreDinosaurs: They certainly breath fire. [=WarGreymon=], basically a TyrannosaurusRex with a humanoid body, is identified as a dragon man²* {{Dracolich}}: [=SkullGreymon=]²* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs²* FierySalamander²* FlashStep: [=WarGreymon=] can do these.²* HeroicBuild: [=WarGreymon=].²* KamehameHadoken: [=WarGreymon=]'s '''Terra Force!''' attack. It more resembles [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku's Spirit Bomb attack]], to the point of ShoutOut territory.²* KillItWithFire: A huge assortment of BreathWeapon attacks, like Agumon's Pepper Breath and Greymon and onward's Nova Blast. [=WarGreymon=] uses this in the vein of KiAttacks.²* LightningBruiser: [=WarGreymon=].²* MightyGlacier: Greymon and [=MetalGreymon=], though he's still relatively mobile.²* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [=MetalGreymon=] is a giant, flying TyrannosaurusRex with mech armor and nuclear warheads in his chest!²* NonMammalianHair: [=WarGreymon=] and [=MetalGreymon=] have short hair flowing from their helmets.²* NukeEm: [=MetalGreymon=] can launch tactical nuclear missiles.²* OurDragonsAreDifferent: [=WarGreymon=] is identified as a Dragon Man, he's basically a humanoid T-rex wearing armor.²* TyrannosaurusRex²* WeaponOfXSlaying: [=WarGreymon's=] Dramon Destroyer claws are highly effective at...well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin destroying Dramon]] type Digimon.²²!!Yamato "Matt" Ishida²²[[quoteright:88:]]²²Matt wants everyone to think he's a brooding bad boy, but he's actually rather sensitive. He has issues trusting people (himself most of all), and he's very overprotective of his younger brother, TK. This causes him to be very cautious (although not as cautious as Joe), which results in a lot of clashes with the get-out-and-go Tai. Despite (or perhaps thanks to) all this, his crest is Friendship. ²* AloofBigBrother: Has difficulty trying to be a big brother²* AntiHero: Type II.²* BigBrotherInstinct: While he struggles to be a big brother, he'll always rush to T.K.'s side²* DeathGlare: Don't piss him off, or one will get this²* HairOfGold: Very blonde hair²* HairTriggerTemper: Boy does Tai ever stresses him out, and if not him, there's the evil digimon²* IneffectualLoner: Tends to be by himself a lot²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Can be this way at times.²* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Tai's red²* TheLancer: While Tai is TheHero, Matt is TheLancer²* ThePowerOfFriendship: His crest²²!!Gabumon²²[[quoteright:163:]]²²Matt's partner, a horned yellow reptile-like Digimon who, rather oddly, appears to wear a skin of white fur rather than having a natural coat. Something of a milder {{Foil}} to Matt, he often criticizes his selfish moments but sticks by him regardless.²²²His digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Tsunomon (Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Gabumon (Fire/Ice-type)²** '''Champion''': Garurumon (Ice-type)²** '''Ultimate''': [=WereGarurumon=] (Ice/Fighting-type)²** '''Mega''': [=MetalGarurumon=] (Ice/Steel-type)²²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: His pelt²* {{Adorkable}}: Gabumon has his moments, like comparing Tai and Matt to ice cream flavors.²* AnIcePerson: Specially his final form.²* CanisMajor: Garurumon is bigger than most automobiles.²* {{Cyborg}}: [=MetalGarurumon=] is a smaller, cyborg version of Garurumon²* DontLookAtMe: He doesn't like to be seen without his pelt.²* FurAgainstFang: When he goes one-on-one with Myotismon, it seems to invoke this trope. Unfortunately for him the fang half seems to be far more powerful...²* KiAttacks: [=WereGarurumon's=] Wolf Claw and Garuru Kick can be used in this fashion to give him ranged attacks²* {{Lunacy}}: [=WereGarurumon=] possesses an attack that consists in a kick which unleashes a moon-shaped shockwave.²* MacrossMissileMassacre: [=MetalGarurumon=]²* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Would follow Matt, even if it put him at odds with the other Digidestined.²* NiceGuy: Gabumon²* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: [=WereGarurumon=], who looks like a furry punk in leather. Also a [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] BishonenLine.²* SpikesOfDoom²* TechnicolorFire: His BreathWeapon as both Gabumon and Garurumon.²* TooManyBelts: As [=WereGarurumon=].²* UndyingLoyalty: He is a canine, after all.²* WallCrawl: [=WereGarurumon=] practices this with impressive speed.²²!!Sora Takenouchi²²[[quoteright:409:]]²²The group's mother figure, and owner of the Crest of Love. Sora is a sweet girl, but doesn't really see that aspect of herself very well. She spends most of her time mediating fights between Tai and Matt, and keeping the group in line. She doesn't always have the patience for it, but she tries anyway.²* ActionGirl: Digimon's earliest example²* CoolBigSis: When not the TeamMom, she can be said to be the big sister of the group²* FieryRedhead: She has flaming-red hair and is more active than your average Chick.²* TheHeart: Its her crest's symbol!²* MeaningfulName: "Sora" is Japanese for "sky." Guess who has the bird Digimon?²* NiceHat: Oddly, it's a helmet sometimes²* ParentalAbandonment: Mom is emotionally distant and Dad is a workaholic. ²* ThePowerOfLove: Her Crest.²* SleevesAreForWimps: Her shirt has no sleeves²* TeamMom: When not being the CoolBigSis²* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Mimi's Girly Girl.²* YamatoNadeshiko: What her Education Mama, who is one already, wants her to be. Later, though, they make amends.²²!!Biyomon (Piyomon)²²[[quoteright:150:]]²²Sora's pink-feathered bird-like partner, who often causes her some angst with her loyalty and gentleness. More than a bit hyper.²²Her digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Yokomon (Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Biyomon (Fire/Flying-type)²** '''Champion''': Birdramon (Fire/Flying-type)²** '''Ultimate''': Garudamon (Fire/Flying-type)²²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: She wears a ring around her leg²* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins: Garudamon.²* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: [[CallingYourAttacks Spiral Twister!]]²* GenkiGirl²* GiantFlyer: When evolved. It's worth noting that of all the final forms of the protagnists' Digimon, Garudamon is tied with [=MegaKabuterimon=] as the largest of the lot.²* LoveFreak: At least when it comes to Sora.²* MixAndMatchCritters: Birdramon, who is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a cross between a bird and a dragon]].²* NoisyNature: As Birdramon, she's prone to letting out a loud avian shriek.²* NonmammalianHair: Garudamon has long (valkyrie?) braids but is otherwise clearly a bird-mon.²* ThePhoenix²* PlayingWithFire: Biyomon, Birdramon, and Garudamon all have fire based attacks as their main weapons.²* PollyWantsAMicrophone²* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Not as obvious as with Izzy, but you'll notice her speech patterns are more antiquated than the other Digimon.²* TechnicolorFire: Her Spiral Twister attack.²* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Pink? Check. Jewelry? Check. Hair like structure? Check. Long blonde hair, in Garudamon's case? Check. Yeah, she's a girl.²* WindIsGreen: Her "Spiral Twister" ability, which basically looks like a flaming green hurricane.'²²!!Koushirou "Izzy" Izumi²²[[quoteright:406:]]²²Basically, Izzy is the one who can actually think his way out of a paper bag, which is only supported by his Crest of Knowledge. He's very curious and logical, and somewhat unsure of himself socially. He carries around a laptop computer, and his reactions to various problems are nearly always a variation on "If I learn enough, I can fix it."²²His biological parents died when he was very young, and his father's cousins adopted him, having recently lost a child of their own. They kept this a secret from him, but he accidentally heard them talking about it, and was devastated. After this, Izzy sank himself into his computer as an escape, probably to learn everything he could. At the same time, he loves his parents deeply and is very well-behaved for them.²* BadLiar: Izzy tends to babble nervously, laugh awkwardly, and come up with weak sounding stories when he is placed on the spot and he is asked questions that he can’t answer.²* CharacterExaggeration: His "computer nerd" status has exaggerated by Mimi when she joked to the news saying "Izzy's girlfriend is his computer'. Needless to say, Izzy was not amused²* ChildProdigy: Despite how young he is, he's able to understand the digital world's complex nature²* DeadpanSnarker: Has made snarky remarks ²* DoingResearch: The kids would never have gotten very far without Izzy's laptop. It does 98% of everything in the series except digivolve, be a digivice and induce the character development of traits that the digidestined need.²* HappilyAdopted: While he loves his parents, he went through a series of denial as he learned he's adopted²* MrExposition: Boy does he ever!²* TheSmartGuy: His crest is knowledge!²* WiseBeyondTheirYears: You'd think the schools would let him graduate early by now!²²!!Tentomon²²[[quoteright:214:]]²²Izzy's partner, who resembles a red winged robotic insect. Not as brainy as his partner, but sometimes with a little more common sense. Tends to rein in Izzy when his [[ForScience quest for knowledge]] goes a bit too far.²²His digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Motimon (Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Tentomon (Bug/Electric-type)²** '''Champion''': Kabuterimon (Bug/Electric-type)²** '''Ultimate''': [=MegaKabuterimon=] (Bug/Electric-type)²²* BigCreepyCrawlies: Which terrifies Misty, of course²** GiantFlyer: Of all the final forms of the protagonists' Digimon, [=MegaKabuterimon=] is tied with Garudamon as the largest of the lot. Kabuterimon also tends to be portrayed as the largest of the Champion-level Digimon, though this tends to fluctuate somewhat between him and Birdramon.²* DeadpanSnarker: Results in some SnarkToSnarkCombat with Izzy.²* MultiArmedAndDangerous: While as Tentomon he has a pair of vestigial arms, Kabuterimon and [=MegaKabuterimon=] have a fully functional extra pair.²* ShockAndAwe: The originator of electricity being the go-to element for insect Digimon.²* TheWatson: Izzy tends to have to explain what he's doing to him, and thus us.²²!!Mimi Tachikawa²²[[quoteright:288:]]²²She's [[TheChick the girl]], basically. Somewhat prissy and spoiled, she doesn't always seem to "get" the situation, and is sometimes rather selfish without really realizing it. She matures into a kind, sweet, pacifistic figure, befitting her status as holder of the Crest of Sincerity/Purity. However, once she realizes how high the stakes are, she breaks down and refuses to continue, but comes to realize that some fights simply must be fought.²* BrutalHonesty: Sometimes tells the truth straightforward²* TheChick: Pretty much the girliest member of the group²* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Her Digivice temporarily become green when Palmon digivolves into Lillymon.²* GenkiGirl: Pretty excited and happy-go-lucky. Her first reaction to hearing the Team Rocket motto? Cheer!²* NiceHat: A cowboy hat to be exact!²* {{Ojou}}: A nice and friendly version ²* PluckyGirl: A very happy-go-lucky gal²* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: With Sora²²!!Palmon²²[[quoteright:164:]]²²Mimi's partner, a plant-like Digimon who perhaps [[IncrediblyLamePun is the steady roots to Mimi's flights of fancy]].²²Her digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Tanemon (Grass/Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Palmon (Grass-type)²** '''Champion''': Togemon (Grass/Fighting-type)²** '''Ultimate''': Lillymon (Grass/Fairy-type)²²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Togemon's gloves²* {{BFG}}: Lillymon's [[CallingYourAttacks Flower Cannon!]]²* BishonenLine: Lillymon²* BoisterousBruiser: As Togemon²* CombatTentacles: Palmon's Poison Ivy attack.²* FragileSpeedster: As Lillymon. She can't take too much punishment, but she's so fast that she's a force to be reckoned with.²* GreenThumb: A plant digimon ²* PlantAliens: A plant-based lifeform from another dimension, both from Earth and Pokearth!²* PlantPerson: Lillymon²* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Lillymon, now with Fairy-type on Pokearth thanks to PokemonXAndY²* SpikeShooter: As Togemon, with her needle storm.²* RedBoxingGloves: As Togemon²²!! Joe Kido²²[[quoteright:90:]]²²Because he's the oldest, Joe thinks he should be the responsible one and take care of the other kids—too bad he's a total pushover with no self-esteem. He's cut deeply whenever he realizes that people think of him this way, and tries to make up for it with acts of reckless selflessness that make Tai look positively cowardly. Perhaps the closest thing to a father figure in the group. His crest is that of Reliability.²²* ButtMonkey: Boy does the others like to joke around with him²* NerdGlasses: Wears glasses²* TeamDad: Oldest member of the group, does what he can to be a voice of reason²* TheMedic: Uses his medical knowledge to heal the digimon and other Digidestined when needed²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Literally, his hair is blue²²!! Gomamon²²[[quoteright:214:]]²²Joe's partner, a seal-like creature. The biggest {{Foil}} Digimon of the first season, with his optimistic and silly nature often clashing with Joe's much more serious nature. Despite his playfulness, Gomamon is level-headed enough know when to take risks and bright enough to keep Joe from giving in to despair. He's also has FourthWallAwareness²²His Digivolutions are as follows:²** '''In-Training''': Bukamon (Normal-type)²** '''Rookie''': Gomamon (Water-type)²** '''Champion''': Ikkakumon (Water/Ice-type)²** '''Ultimate''': Zudomon (Ice/Electric-type)²²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Zudomon's belts.²* {{Adorkable}}: Dorky by adorable²* AnIcePerson: Ikkakumon's Northern Lights in the PSP game.²* AtlantisIsBoring: Gomamon's Marching Fishes attack is used very scarcely across the entire series; when it is used, it certainly proves to be incredibly useful for traversing water. Thanks to TMs, Gomamon can no be MakingASplash²* BadassMoustache: Zudomon.²* BewareTheSillyOnes: The joker of the group, yet his Ultimate form has a weapon that can damage Chrome Digizoid, a nearly indestructable metal.²* BreakingTheFourthWall: He makes lampshading comments all the time!²* CuteLittleFangs²* DropTheHammer: Zudomon's Vulcan's Hammer.²* FacialMarkings: As Gomamon²* FieryRedhead: A mohawk as Gomamon²* {{Flight}}: Bukamon.²* {{Hammerspace}}: Where ''do'' those fish come from, exactly?²* InnocentBlueEyes: Bukamon, and his Digivolutions.²* {{Keet}}: Pretty eccentric²* MacrossMissileMassacre: Ikkakumon's Harpoon Torpedo.²* MagikarpPower: Starts off as a rookie thats not much of a fighter (without the TMs) but as he digivolves, becomes TheBigGuy!²** With just Zudomon's first digivolution, he gave Devimon trouble, the same digimon who down six of their champions easily!²* MakingASplash: In theory. The "attack" that comes closest to this is [[SummonMagic Marching Fishes]]. As Ikkakumon, he uses NonElemental attacks and as Zudomon, his main attack consists of ShockAndAwe.²* MightyGlacier: His Digivolutions.²* MixAndMatchCritter: Zudomon.²* OddFriendship: With Joe.²* PluckyComicRelief: Always count on him for a joke²* SeaMonster: Mon stands for monster, and he's an aquatic-base creature²* ShockAndAwe: Zudomon's Vulcan's Hammer.²* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead: As Gomamon again²²!!Takeru "T.K." Takaishi²-->''"I don't want to fight, ever!"''²²[[quoteright:200:]]²²Matt's little brother, and the youngest Digidestined (at first). As the quote may say he doesn't like to fight... [[BewareTheNiceOnes but when he does, hoo boy]]. His crest is Hope.²²* CheerfulChild: Always tries to look on the bright side²* ChildrenAreInnocent: His crest is hope and he's partner is an angel!²* DeadSidekick: DeathIsCheap, mind. However, he and Angemon got back at Devimon in a GiantSpaceFleaOutOfNowhere²* DivorceIsTemporary: He never gives up hope that his parents will remarry.²* KidAppealCharacter: A second grader²* MoralityPet: For Matt.²* NiceHat: A big green hat to be exact²* TagalongKid: His digimon hadn't digivolve much until Angemon's return at the battle against Giratina and Devimon.²* ThemeNaming: Along with his brother, named after folk hero Yamato Takeru.²²!! Patamon²²[[quoteright:219:]]²²TK's partner, who starts off looking like a pig with wings, and the most childish of the Digimon. [[BewareTheNiceOnes And as it turns out, also the most powerful]].²²His Digivolutions are as follows:²** '''Rookie''': Patamon (Normal/Flying-type)²** '''Champion''': Angemon (Light/Flying-type)²²* AngelicBeauty: His Digivolutions.²* BestForLast: The final partner to reach both Champion and Ultimate forms, probably because they were so broken. Interestingly, T.K. was the second [=DigiDestined=] to activate his crest.²* BewareTheNiceOnes: Angemon is generally kind and caring, but he has no patience for evil doers.²* BishonenLine: His Digivolutions.²* BlobMonster: Poyomon.²* BlowYouAway: Boom Bubble.²* BlushSticker: Tokomon.²* CoolHelmet: His Digivolutions.²* CueTheFlyingPigs: Well, not ''literally,'' but considering his picture, the stuff he pulls off comes across as pretty damned unlikely.²* EarWings: His wings are his ears²* {{Flight}}: Why he's a flying-type on pokearth²* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Angemon ²* GoodWingsEvilWings: His evolutions have the expected feathery angel wings, but Patamon himself has bat-like wings typically associated with evil beings.²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Angemon like pretty much all angel digimon, have blonde hair.²* HandBlast: Angemon's Hand of Fate.²* HeadPet: Rides on T.K.'s head a lot²* HolyHandGrenade: Extremely strong against undead and demonic opponents... which tend to fill the role of BigBad in this season.²* InnocentBlueEyes: As Patamon²* LightEmUp: He brought Light-types to Pokearth²* LightIsGood: He's an angel and he's a light-type²* LoinCloth: Angemon and Seraphimon.²* MagikarpPower: He's easily the weakest of the main Digimon, and can't do much in a fight. Then he digivolves into Angemon...²* MeaningfulName: Tokomon. Tokoton translates to "the very last."²* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Tokomon²* MrFanservice: Angemon²* OurAngelsAreDifferent: His Digivolutions.²* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Patamon²* SimpleStaff: Angemon's [[UnfortunateName Angel Rod]].²²!!Hikari "Kari" Yagami²²[[quoteright:201:]]²²Tai's little sister, and the [[SixthRanger Eighth Child]], not that anyone knows it at first. Very [[ChildrenAreInnocent sweet, kind and innocent]], but also often wise beyond her years. She has the Crest of Light, which is [[MeaningfulName only fitting]].²²* AffirmativeActionGirl: Uncounting the pokemon trainers, became the third female digidestined²* BigBrotherWorship: Admires her brother²* BigNo: When [[spoiler: Wizardmon is killed]].²* BlessedWithSuck: Her power takes a physical toll on her.²* CheerfulChild: As cheerful as T.K.!²* DistaffCounterpart: To TK.²* IllGirl: The current page image, in fact. She had pneumonia in ''Adventure'', and that's why she couldn't go to the class trip and [[MissedTheCall didn't join her fellow Digidestined until later]].²* KindheartedCatLover: Has both a real-life pet cat and a cat Digimon.²* LateArrivalSpoiler: Yes, she's the eighth child ²* LightIsGood: Her crest is light!²* LittleMissSnarker: Can make a snarky remarks²* MeaningfulName: "hikari" is Japanese for "light," and guess who has the Crest of Light?²* MissedTheCall: As mentioned above, she was ill. Coincidentially, her partner was in the hands of a BigBad by then, having been lost as an egg and taken in by Myotismon... which raises the question of what would've happened had Kari not missed the call and gone to the Digital World anyway.²* NaiveEverygirl: Subverted. She ''is'' sweet and kind and gentle, but tries her best to hold her own.²* SixthRanger: Newest member to the main digidestined²²!! Gatomon²²[[quoteright:240:]]²²The last of the Digimon partners, who eventually partners up with Kari. The only partner who spends most of her time in Champion form (not that it's easy to tell) and her more frank toughness is rather a contrast to Kari's [[ChildrenAreInnocent youthful innocence]]. Spent her whole life working for Myotismon until, helped by Wizardmon, recalled her destiny. With Ryo, they saved Kari and took her to Pokearth to meet up with the other Digidestineds.²²Her Digivolutions are as follows:²** '''Champion''': Gatomon (Normal/Light-type)²** '''Ultimate''': Angewomon (Light/Flying-type)²²* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Her Holy Ring²* AngelicBeauty: Angewomon.²* BadassAdorable²* BareYourMidriff: Angewomon²* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: Basically her backstory - being tormented for years led to her becoming Myotismon's leading henchmon. Prior to her defection, she seems to enjoy being a bitch.²BrokenBird: The heaps of abuse dealt to her by Myotismon just because she had gentle eyes made her cynical and bitter, with Wizardmon as [[MoralityPet the only one whom she showed a bit of kindness to]]. Until she met Kari and became her partner, that is.²* CatsAreMagic: An interesting variation, in that Gatomon is the cat associated with Wizardmon. It’s like a classic Wizard-Familiar relationship, except that they are good friends.²* CatsAreMean: Subverted upon her HeelFaceTurn.²* CatsAreSnarkers: Expect her to make snarky comments now and then²* CatFolk: She's a cat²* CatSmile: WhenSheSmiles²* ChainmailBikini: The little armor Angewomon wears consists of her helm and a breastplate. A "breastplate" which amounts to little more than a metal bra.²* CoolHelmet: Angewomon.²* CuteBruiser: ''WAY'' stronger than [[PintSizedPowerhouse she looks]].²* CuteKitten: Even though she's an adult digimon²* CuteLittleFangs: A CatSmile²* TheDragon: Was one of Mytoismon's top lieutenants, capable of giving the heroes a good fight.²** CoDragons: Technically with [=DemiDevimon=], since they share about the same status within Myotismon's legion. However [=DemiDevimon=] is so underpowered, it's clear that Gatomon was the real Dragon.²* DistaffCounterpart: Angewomon to Angemon.²* TheDogBitesBack: Perhaps if Myotismon hadn't made a habit of abusing her terribly, she wouldn't have [[spoiler:shot an arrow through his heart]].²* EnergyBow: Angewomon's Celestial Arrow.²* FashionableAsymmetry: Angewomon.²* FingerlessGloves: Allows her claws to stick out.²* {{Flight}}: Angewomon.²* GoldAndWhiteAreDivine: Angewomon.²* GoodWingsEvilWings: The aforementioned evolutions have big feathery angel wings (of course).²* GuardianEntity: What drove her on in life: Knowing that she was meant to find and defend someone. And this is even before becoming [[GuardianAngel Angewomon]].²* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Most humnaoid angel Digimon have blonde hair. It's one of their things.²* HiddenEyes: Angewomon's helm covers up her eyes. They do exist, and can be seen in her evolution sequence.²* HighHeelFaceTurn: Myotismon's only other female minion was a Dokugumon.²* LaserGuidedAmnesia: And how! Before she met Kari, Gatomon only could remember her hatred against everyone and the brutal punishments she used to get at a daily basis. She even forgot about the day when she met Wizardmon! Of course, she got better.²* LightningBruiser: She managed to take on six Digimon on the same digivolution level easilly.²* LightEmUp: Like Angemon, brought the Light-type to Pokearth²* LightIsGood: Upon re-discovering her memories.²* LightIsNotGood: Pre-HeelFaceTurn.²* MadeASlave: As Salamon, was made to be a slave to Myotismon.²* MetamorphosisMonster: Her Digivolution line is quite random.²* MsFanservice: Angewomon.²* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Cute little kitty defeated the group all by herself. Though she is a natural Champion level Digimon while they're all natural Rookies.²* OperaGloves: Angewomon has one.²* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Angewomon.²* TheParalyzer: Angewomon's Heavens Charm seems to have this effect on evil Digimon.²* PintsizedPowerhouse: She's a Champion level, but she's much smaller and more powerful than most of the other kids' partners! This is justified by her evolving naturally to her Champion stage while the others require the children's power to do so.²* ThePowerOfHate: What kept her going for most of her life.²* PowerSource: Her Tail Ring. Without, her strength is reduced to that of a Rookie.²* PreciousPuppy: Salamon.²* PungeonMaster: Cat-related²* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to [=DemiDevimon=]'s red, though she could also be seen as the red to Wizardmon's blue.²* RightHandCat: Literally for Mytoismon.²* ScarsAreForever: Has an X-shaped scar on her left paw from Myotismon, but it's normally covered by her glove. She has a glove on the same hand as Angewomon.²* SensualSpandex: Angewomon.²* SixthRanger: With Kari, of course²* TeamMom: Being more introverted and mature than most of the other Digimon, she has a tendency to herd them or provide insights into what's going on with the children.²* ThereIsAnother: the 8th Digimon²* ThinkingOutLoud: Does this while observing on Kari, speaking her thoughts about her cloudy past. Wizardmon hears this, and asks her a question. Gatomon, not realizing she was thinking out loud, gets angry and tells him to stop reading her mind.²* TooManyBelts: Angewomon.²* {{Tuckerization}}: Salamon is named after dub producer Terri-Lei O'Malley's pet cat.²* WolverineClaws: Gatomon's claws, which are huge and stick out her gloves.²* ZenSurvivor: After taking years (if not decades) of brutal servitude, Gatomon ends up being wiser and tougher.²²!!Ryo Akiyama²²[[quoteright:69:]]²²Main hero of the ''VideoGame/DigimonWonderSwanSeries''. With the Digidestined sent to the wrong world, someone had to protect Kari and help her get to the others. Ryo's destiny was called early and he was given a special digivice. With HeelFaceTurn Gatomon and Wizardmon (he's temporary partner) they opened the gateway to Pokearth, however Myotismon and his army followed.²²Upon Myotismon's defeat and Wizardmon's death, it seems Ryo's destiny hasn't ended and he was called back to the digital world. Its revealed his digivice is special, as he can bond with other wild digimon (but can't digivolve them). His mission is to defeat a Dark Master, one certain one; Machinedramon. Now where could this adventure lead too?²²²* BrokenAce: Upon Wizardmon's death²* CanonImmigrant: While he was in the ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' universe (as one can see him in Ken's flashbacks) his story originate from the UsefulNotes/WonderSwan video games only released in Japan, so NoExportForYou. Western fans best knew Ryo from his appearance in ''Anime/DigimonTamers''.²* TheDrifter: Has become this after Wizardmon's death²* ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne: After Wizardmon's death, questions wither he should be part of the adventure²* MeaningfulName: "Ryo" means "Distant".²* TheOnlyOne: A key part of his backstory. There was a certain extraordinarily powerful, extraordinarily evil digimon that only he could defeat [[spoiler: because said digimon was his partner]]. He had to learn the ''[[TraumaCongaLine very, very]]'' hard way to stand on his own as a tamer, and it shows in his attitude towards the others. He doesn't mind hanging out with them, but he'll leave to do his own thing at the drop of a hat.²* StepfordSmiler: Wizardmon's death is only one blow that will be to come, to anyone who knows the games.²* WalkingTheEarth: Alone but with a team of digimon²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Ryo's Partners]]²!!Wizardmon (Wizarmon)²²[[quoteright:216:]]²²A minion of Myotismon who is more than he seems, and has strange powers even by Digimon standards. Gatomon's only real friend [[spoiler:(at first)]] who turns out to greatly influence the story. Became the first to side with Ryo, and with Gatomon, they saved Kari and took her to Pokearth to meet up with the Digidestineds.²²* AWizardDidIt: Not JustForPun, but see ScarilyCompetentTracker below.²* [[spoiler:AlmostDeadGuy: Keeps himself alive to ensure that he fulfills his destiny.]]²* BadassCape: Complete with InstantRunes.²* BlackMage: With various forms of BlackMagic.²* CallingYourAttacks: [[CombatMedic Averts]] [[CombatPragmatist this]] [[InTheBack when]] necessary.²* CatsAreMagic: An interesting variation, in that Gatomon is the cat associated with Wizardmon. It’s like a classic Wizard-Familiar relationship, except that they are good friends.²* CoatHatMask: Coat is small though²* CombatMedic: Has healing spells²* [[spoiler:DarkIsNotEvil: Worked for Myotismon but really sided with him for Gatomon's shake. Never was keen on the vampire lord's plans since the beginning]]²* [[spoiler:{{Determinator}}]]: Oh, yes indeed. See SquishyWizard below.²* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome: Died to protect Kari and Gatomon]]²* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: He’s a wizard.²* {{Fireballs}}: One of spells²* {{Foil}}: To Gatomon [[spoiler:and Myotismon.]] Gatomon is his female counterpart, who is more of a physical fighter than a magical one, and with a tough personality but cute looks, all of which are the inverse of Wizardmon's traits. [[spoiler:Similarly, Myotismon is a tall, blonde, blue-eyed and menacing magic user with extreme toughness and power, but Wizardmon also has blonde hair, blue eyes, uses magic, is of smaller size, and his gentle ways, as well as his noble and honorable sacrifice, highlight their similarities and contrasting differences... and just how evil the vampire really was.]]²* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Like a few members of Myotismon's crew, Wizardmon was able to walk in broad daylight without drawing attention to himself. He poses as a street magician, [[StageMagician producing balloons and doves with sleight of hand.]]²* FrothyMugsOfWater: He bribes [=DemiDevimon=] with a bottle of Sake.²* [[spoiler:HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: One of the first visual hints that he’s not actually evil. Goes well with his blue eyes.]]²* HealingHands: Healing spells²* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: For Tailmon and Kari]]²InstantRunes: He has a few in the inner parts of his BadassCape.²* IOweYouMyLife: Gatomon once saved him from starving to death and from his crushing loneliness. Ever since then, he became completely devoted to her.²* LipLock: One of the few Digimon characters completely immune to this. The only time we see his mouth we discover [[spoiler: that he has ''literal'' LipLock. His lips are stitched together. It doesn't prevent him from eating or speaking though.]]²* LonersAreFreaks: He was this before he met Gatomon, though he subverts the IneffectualLoner trope as well later on.²** Within the RP, its been hinted he was cast out by Witchmon²* MagiciansAreWizards: An interesting variation in that while he poses as a stage magician at first, [[ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself he still wears his full wizard outfit.]]²* MagicWand: Look closely and you'll see it's in the shape of a Digitama (Digi-egg), or a Tamagotchi. WordOfGod says it's a MythologyGag and a ShoutOut to the original Digital Monsters.²* MoralityChain: For a long time, only his presence kept Gatomon from being a full-blooded villainess.²* MysteriousPast: Witchmon under Mermaimon's crew implies to have knowing and defeating a Wizardmon, is it the same one? Beyond that, nothing is known of Wizardmon's past²* PintSizedPowerhouse: He's about TK's size!²* PlatonicLifePartners: He and Gatomon were each other's only friends for a while. Needless to say they seemed quite close.²* RobeAndWizardHat²* ScarilyCompetentTracker: He was the first one in Myotismon’s crew to successfully locate Kari, then brought Gatomon to her. ²* SquishyWizard: [[spoiler:Subverted. He's small, but man, he took a ''lot'' of punishment before dying: surviving two OneHitKill attacks, being tossed into the ocean, blasted by magic into a wall by a superpowerful vampire and then using his body as a shield to block a third OneHitKill spell, and even lasting ''long enough after that to say his last words''. Also played straight in that he's a bit of a GlassCannon, but he manages to get up after he's been hit by something insanely powerful.]]²* StageMagician: He poses as one of these to avoid drawing attention to himself in the Real World.²* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet: Is killed when he takes an attack meant for Gatomon and Kari.]]²* UndyingLoyalty: To Gatomon and Gatomon alone. [[spoiler:Well, Kari too, by extension.]]²* {{Zipperiffic}}: Just look at his outfit!²²!!Leomon²²[[quoteright:191:]]²²A (at first) friendly wild lion-like Digimon who fights for the weak and helps the kids, though without entirely trusting them. Thanks to being shined light from Tai's digivice, he's now able to Warp Digivolve into SaberLeomon. As requested by a Waspmon, he journeys alongside Ryo and Ogremon to help the former deal with the Dark Masters.²²His digivolutions are as follows:²** '''Champion''': Leomon (Fighting-type)²** '''Mega''': [=SaberLeomon=] (Normal-type)²²* BrainwashedAndCrazy: ''Thrice'' in one arc!²* GentleGiant²* KingOfBeasts²* MartyrWithoutACause: Becomes his recurring purpose in each show.²* MegaNeko²* PantheraAwesome²* ReverseGrip: Wields his sword in this manner.²* TooManyBelts²* WalkingShirtlessScene²* WorthyOpponent: To Ogremon.²²!!Ogremon²²[[quoteright:223:]]²²Leomon's rival and foil, an uncouth brute with a sense of humor. As his name indicates, he resembles an ogre.²Since the Digidestined left File Island, Ogremon had became a bandit, robbing those that pass through the canyons. When attacking Hiro's group, he was shined upon by Willis' digivice, giving him the ability to Warp Digivolve just as Leomon. Like the lion-man, he too was asked to joined Ryo's team.²²His digivolutions are as follows:²** '''Champion''': Ogremon (Dark/Fighting-type)²** '''Mega''': Titamon (Dark/Fighting-type)²²* CarryABigStick: His weapon²* DarkIsNotEvil: Following his HeelFaceTurn.²* TheDragon: For Devimon.²* DumbMuscle: TheBigGuy in Ryo's team²* HeelFaceTurn: Once Devimon's minion, now sides with Ryo to save the Digital World²* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Again, after his HeelFaceTurn.²* NotBrainwashed: He was the only one who served Devimon out of his own free will.²* TheRival: To Leomon.²* WorthyOpponent: Again, to Leomon.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:"Pokedestined"]]²²!!Ash Ketchum²²[[quoteright:350:]]²²The [[AllLovingHero All-Loving]] IdiotHero of the series.

While Pikachu is his main pokemon, the one who recieves the power of the sealed evolution is Charizard.²²* AlwaysSecondBest: In a TakeThat to the anime during his encounter with Datamon, he reveals Ash would never win a Pokemon League. Taken worse during a dream Ash had a sneak peak to all his defeats at the Pokemon Leagues of Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova in the original timeline.²* AshFace: Pun not intended. Even when Charizard starts to obey him again, the big flaming pokemon will often torch his face as a greeting.²* BadassNormal: Ash might be trainer, but being a FearlessFool, he'll often do things himself. Such as strike Myotismon himself just to get Kari's crest back!²* BerserkButton: Don't even abuse pokemon before this kid, wither you be human or digimon²* BigEater²* BigWordShout: [[SkywardScream "PIKACHU!!!!!!!!"]]²* BookDumb: Give him a written test on Pokémon or ask him what moves a given Pokémon learns, etc. and he'll fail every time.

Especially when Datamon drops the bomb about his future status and then he had the dream of his defeats at every pokemon league, while all his friends will move on with their lives²* ButtMonkey²* CharacterDevelopment²* CharmPoint: His hat.²* ChasteHero: Ash is this trope. He didn't know Melody (of Pokemon2000) was flirting with him, let alone how jealous Misty was getting!²* ChickMagnet: Sadly he's ObliviousToLove²* TheChosenOne: If being the hero in the prophecy in Pokemon2000 isn't enough, Ash receives a D-Sphere (digivice for pokemon trainers) and a crest, becoming a Digidestined of Pokearth!²* CoolDownHug: Needed it in a dream as he sees all his friends are moving on with their lives and he's still battling pokemon leagues, always losing and not going anywhere.²* ConfusionFu: When he isn't being an Idiot Hero, one of his greatest strengths in Pokémon battling is coming up with off-the-wall strategies on the fly that surprise his opponents. Such as when he had all his pokemon attacked at once on Myotismon, resulting in an explosion!²* CultureBlind: It's suprising how a guy who is so obsessed with Pokémon could be so completely ignorant of others in the other areas.²* {{Determinator}}: And HOW. Its now even his crest! He goes on par with Tai in terms of HotBlooded²* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu?: A whole army of ultimate digimon, highly levelled pokemon and champion digimon barely was able to scratch Myotismon, yet Ash himself went in and attacked him and managed to steal back Kari's crest?!²* TheDitz: He's an IdiotHero alright²** GeniusDitz: He's really quite talented in Pokémon battling.²* DivingSave: Ash repeatedly shields his Pokémon from falls in this fashion, even the ones that are so big they end up crushing him!
