Omnimon/Omegamon vs. Alphamon, at long last.

General entries for Digimon Adventure tri.:

Advertisement:
  • Besides, you know, the entire concept of Digimon Adventure tri being one of these, the first promotional video has already raised hype. The new rendition of Kouji Wada's "Butter-Fly" also qualifies as Wada was battling throat cancer when he made the new rendition.
    • Battle scenes from the promotional video, including Greymon vs. Kuwagamon and Omegamon vs. Alphamon Ouryuuken!
  • Three words: GREYMON VS KUWAGAMON!
  • Taichi facing off against Kuwagamon alone, with nothing but a bicycle.
  • Seeing the Original team's Digimon in action against the three attacking Digimon. The return of Greymon, Garurumon, Birdramon, Kabuterimon and Angemon were a welcomed return! And they haven't goten rusty in the past few years.
  • Koushiro creates a cyberspace area on his office server that the digimon can enter and leave through any monitor connected to the internet. They can enter through his office and deploy anywhere in the city. This means that no matter where an infected digimon shows up, they will be able to get there quickly, and a faster response time means less time rampage time which means less damage to the city. He also pulled an all nighter to modify Taichi's goggles to detect areas where infected digimon could appear. While Taichi himself is still in a Heroic BSoD over the Destructive Savior thing, his nerdy friend is already taking action to address it.
    • Also a Shoutout to Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth.
  • By the end of the first film, Patamon evolves to Angemon twice and with her Holy Ring returned, we find that Gatomon is as strong as she's ever been at her Adult level. The angels are not afraid to fight this time.
  • Alphamon vs Omnimon is just so beautifully badass as well as incredibly animated that it shows that the studio is taking a lot of steps to ensure that neither of these powerful Knights is jobbing. Plus, Alphamon's entrance is eerily cool, as well as the resulting use of his energy attack on the stadium.
    • Also, even if its supposed to be a bad thing, it's hard not to be amazed by the way Alphamon absolutely curbstomps the Adult Digimon before Omegamon. Sure, every savvy fan saw it coming from a mile away, but Alphamon did it with style.

    • And what's dub Izzy's impression when Omegamon is formed? Nothing short of "Prodigious!"
    • Is no one going to mention the epic build up to Agumon and Gabumon combining into Omegamon? Their digivolution cycle going through the forms, culminating in an Grace Cross Freezer and Gaia Force, before the dna digivolution?
  • The new designs of the main partner Digimon look beastly. Overall, most of them are very animal-like, with features to emphasize their nature.
  • The scale of this series is already awesome - Reunion ends with Mega level Digimon duking it out across Odaiba and wrecking the town. This is the first installment, when usually it takes about halfway through the series or more before any large scale damage is done to the heroes' hometown. That the danger is likely only going to keep growing as it always does across the subsequent films means an Alphamon vs Omegamon fight is just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Taichi and Yamato are fighting and nothing anyone says can convince them to stop. Sora is getting annoyed by this, as are the rest of the crew. How does Sora fix this? Doing a reverse Locked in a Room on them by locking them out of the Ferris wheel car the rest of the group had climbed into and forcing them to ride in the next one together; naturally the two of them eventually are forced to talk and eventually make up.
  • Rosemon and Vikemon utterly WHALLOPING Imperialdramon is a beautiful climax to Joe and Mimi's character arcs in movie 2—-Rosemon's as powerful as Imperialdramon FIGHTER MODE and Vikemon smashes him easily!
  • Togemon also puts up an impressive fight against Imperialdramon, despite being weaker by several levels of digivolution.
  • The battle against Meicoomon in Confession has everyone struggling against her as she goes into her Mega form and becoming infected, leaving only Tentomon to sane. He digivolves to his Mega form in order to get the others to snap out of it long enough to get back through the distortion.
    • Though Tentomon had the option to back up his data, he Digivolves into his Mega level form HerculesKabuterimon, simultaneously fighting off the infected Wargreymon, several champion levels, Angewomon and some Mega Level cat thing. Despite being pushed out into the real world, he makes his last stand. He snaps his Digimon friends out of their infection with a mighty roar long enough before using all of his strength to push them back into the distortion physically overpowering them before the reboot occurs. Saving the real world from his infected Digimon friends.
  • WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon haven't had a lot of focus in tri due to a lot of time being put into the other partners achieving Ultimate level. Cue Loss, where they not only have a dedicated action scene but wail all over Metalseadramon while underwater. Extra points for the fight ending with a Brave Tornado.
  • Loss delves HEAVILY into the lore of Adventure. In particular, the passing mention made at the end of Digimon Adventure of another group of Chosen Children who had saved the digital world before. During a battle with the Dark Masters and in a moment of desperation, the team sacrificed one of its members to evolve to the final level. In doing so the remaining form became the Harmonious Ones. Meaning the Azulongmon who would one day be defeated by the Dark Masters was, thousands of years ago, just like Agumon or Patamon.
    • Even Better! Daigo's partner was Loaderleomon and managed to become a Harmonious one.....meaning a LEOMON LIVED!
  • Hououmon, HerakleKabuterimon and Seraphimon team up and curb stomp Machinedramon.
  • Smaller compared to some of the other entries, but after Meiko re-encounters Meicoomon, Meicoomon starts trying to attack Meiko and Sora for abandoning her. Meiko stands up and talks Meicoomon down, admitting that, yes, she had run away before and it was because Meicoomon was bad, but she's not letting that stop her anymore because she doesn't care about that. Either way, Meicoomon is her friend.
  • Joe deserves some credit for catching Sora in a perfect Bridal Carry when Mugendramon flung her aside. No fumbling or falling or weakness in his arms— she was thrown, he ran, and she landed safely in his arms.
  • It's the end of Coexistence. Ophanimon and Raguelmon have fused into an abomination rivaling any boss the Chosen Children have faced in the past, rogue Digimon are infesting Earth, the group presume Taichi and Daigo missing at best, and none of them have any leads on their compatriots from 02. In a testament to his friendship, Yamato accepts the situation by donning Taichi's goggles.
  • The final battle of Our Future gives us Omnimon Merciful Mode, made up of Omnimon, Phoenixmon, HerculesKabuterimon, Rosemon, Vikemon, Seraphimon, and Magnadramon all DNA Digiviolving together to take down Ordinemon. After so long of the others being overshadowed by WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, all eight Chosen Digimon get to save the day together, as one unstoppable force.

Meta entries for Digimon Adventure tri.:

  • Crunchyroll got the rights to simulcast the film in several regions while it's still in Japanese theaters!
  • The return of many of the original English dub voice actors, and even ones that didn't return were not against and still showed their appreciation for their old characters. The return of original cast members include Joshua Seth as Tai, Colleen O'Shaughnessey as Sora, Mona Marshall as Izzy, Philece Sampler as Mimi, Tom Fahn as Agumon, Kyle Hebert as Greymon (if Digimon Fusion is counted), Kirk Thornton as Gabumon / Garurumon / WereGarurumon / MetalGarurumon, Melodee Spevack as Birdramon / Garudamon, Jeff Nimoy as Tentomon / Kabuterimon / MegaKabuterimon and (false) Gennai, Anna Garduno as Palmon, Mari Devon as Togemon, Dorothy Elias Fahn as Lillymon and, by extension, Rosemon, R. Martin Klein as Gomamon / Ikkakumon, Laura Summer as Patamon, Dave Mallow as Angemon, Jamieson Price as Seraphimon (if we count Digimon Frontier, also unfortunately taking over for Dave), and Paul St. Peter as Leomon. Even Doug Erholtz, who didn't reprise his role as T.K. in 02, still returned to the series to voice Daigo.
  • The new rendition of the original series's legendary opening song, 'Butter-Fly', sang by none other than Wada Kouji himself. The meta-awesome part? The guy fought off cancer to bring us back this iconic song! For Ketsui, he also performed a new cover of insert song Seven (which turned out to be his final performance before his death).
  • The hype that ensued when unexpected characters made their appearance in posters and trailers:
    • Imperialdramon's appearance on the poster for 02 completely shattered all expectations for the series.
    • While it wasn't particularly surprising seeing Hououmon on the cover for Loss, nobody expected Seraphimon's evolution sequence to appear in the trailer. Depending on if Hurricane Touchdown is canon, it could mean Patamon doesn't reach his Ultimate level last! (And if it was canon, it means he reached it third!)
  • Following on that, we finally get to see the other partners Mega forms in anime form.note 
  • Keeping nearly all the BGM for the movies surprisingly meant that Brave Heart and Butterfly finally get to be played in a Digimon English dub. note
