    General PSP Game Tropes 
  • All There in the Manual: In the PSP game, every Digimon has 3 named attacks that use SP, and one unnamed that doesn't, selectable by pressing the attack button. However, this unnamed attack IS named in the game data, and have thus been listed with the other attacks.
  • Auto-Revive: Any Digimon when equipped with LifeUp or LifeUp Omega. Once per battle, if reduced to 0 HP, they'll automatically revive in their lowest stage with 1000 (basic) or full (Omega) HP.
  • Cast From Hit Points: Any Digimon can do this if equipped with Sacrifice Attack.

    • The Guard Button. Always usable. Using it will mean the user takes less damage from attacks until their next move, but it takes up a turn to use.

    • Stun: Called Shock, which freezes a Digimon's place on the turn meter for a while.
    • Silenced: Called Skill Seal, it prevents your Digimon from using their attacks that cost SP, limiting them to the basic Attack command. Removable through Digivolving.
    • Slow: Called Sticky, it turns the Digimon's icon on the turn bar purple, and every move they make sends them right to the end of it.
    • Other: Break, it moves the Digimon back towards then end of the turn bar.

    General Tropes 
  • Bash Brothers: Their final forms cards in Digimon Adventure tri. has one of them power up another's attack, or that Digimon can do the same to them. The teams are, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon, Phoenixmon and HerculesKabuterimon, Rosemon and Vikemon, Seraphymon and Magnadramon.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Confession, all of them, bar Tentomon, become fully infected, and fight their uninfected friends.
  • Bubble Gun: The main attack of all of them when below the Rookie level.
  • Can't Catch Up: In Adventure, only Agumon and Gabumon gained the ability to Digivolve into Mega, putting them a step above the rest of the team, and gap that was only increased by their ability to combine into Omnimon. In tri., the other Digimon gain the ability to Digivolve into Mega too, but Omnimon still keeps Agumon and Gabumon as the most powerful until they all fuse into Merciful Mode.
  • Cast from Calories: They need a minimal stash of energy to digivolve. At one point, Agumon tried to do so on an empty stomach and failed.
  • The Champion: Digimon are the champions of their respective digidestined, and will follow them to the end of the earth. Even if one of them should Face–Heel Turn, their Digimon won't disobey their wishes.
  • Defence Mechanism Superpower: Generally, their power to Digivolve is activated when their human partners are in danger. Tai tried to take advantage of this to get Agumon to Digivolve to Ultimate, but it resulted in a dark digivolution.
  • Dub Name Change: Franchise wide, but the Digivolution levels and what moving between them was called changed depending on the dub:
    • Original: Baby I -> Baby II -> Child -> Adult -> Perfect -> Ultimate, Evolution.
    • English: Fresh -> In-Training -> Rookie -> Champion -> Ultimate -> Mega, Digivolution.
    • German: Baby -> Ausbildung -> Rookie -> Champion -> Ultra -> Mega, Digitation.
    • Latin America: Bebé -> Entrenamient -> Novato -> Campeón -> Ultra o Perfeccionado -> Mega, Digievolución.
    • Spain: Bebé -> Básico -> Principiante -> Campeón -> Mega Campeón -> Hiper Campeón, Digievolución.
    • Italian: Primario -> Primo stadio -> Intermedio -> Campione -> Evoluto -> Mega, Digievoluzione.
  • Dying as Yourself: Invoked. While not really dying per se, being Rebooted will eliminate any trace of the Digimon's old memories, effectively killing the 'old' Digimon and create a new one in its place. During the battle with Meicrackmon, every Digimon except HerculesKabuterimon is corrupted by the infection. HerculesKabuterimon then shouts to them that they cannot part with their human partners in these demonic forms. The shout is strong enough that all Digimon manage to overcome the infection for a moment. They share one last hug with each other while HerculesKabuterimon pushes all of them (including Meicrackmon, who is trapped between them all) into the distortion portal as the Reboot countdown ends.
  • Empty Eyes: All of the infected Digimon with visible eyes had completely white eyes, which didn’t go away even when the purple glow disappeared.
  • Foil: They are all foils to their partners, though the type of foil varies. Some act just like their partner (Agumon-Tai, Patamon-T.K.), others are there because their partner needs someone to love them (Gabumon-Matt, Biyomon-Sora, Palmon-Mimi), and then there are those that exist to challenge their partner (Tentomon-Izzy,Gomamon-Joe, Gatomon-Kari) so they can overcome an emotional slump.
  • Fusion Dance: All eight of them combine together to become Omnimon: Merciful Mode.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: In tri., they all get this after their fights with evil Digimon cause a lot of collateral damage.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Because of the Reboot, all of them lost their memories, and were reduced to the In-Training level. However, Meicoomon managed to retain copies of their memories and Meiko's Digivice is able to restore them in "Our Future".
  • Out of Focus: In 02, everyone but Patamon and Gatomon goes from being the main partners to semi-recurring allies.
  • Paint It Black: Once the infection takes over, the infected Digimon takes on a purple hue.
  • Stepford Smiler: Basically every Digimon partners in Confession. After realizing that all of them are infected, and knowing that the only way out is to wait for the 'Reboot' to happen that has a side effect of removing all their memories, they spent the rest of their times doing happy, nostalgic things with their human partners. Some of them deal with it rather well, while others are less good at it, like Patamon (whom T.K. already knew was infected), Palmon (who clearly is struggling hard to maintain her happiness in front of Mimi) and Agumon (who goes overboard with it and ends up letting Tai figure out that something is wrong and he is forced to tell the truth.)
  • The Worf Effect: In Episode 40 of Adventure establishes the Dark Masters as a threat, by having them trounce all 8 of these guys.
  • Your Size May Vary: All of them had inconsistent sizes throughout Adventure and 02, such as Greymon sometimes being the size of a building, and other times fitting inside small hallways. Most egregiously are Angemon and Angewomon's size's in Diablomon's Counterattack, where they were large enough that T.K. and Kari were smaller than their faces. tri. gave us a height chart, but the sizes on it are inconsistent with their sizes in the previous two seasons, with Garudamon suddenly being Greymon's size rather than much larger. In the tri. movies themselves, the size of some Digimon are still inconsistent, which is most noticeable in Confession, where Togemon and Ikkakumon become suddenly much larger during the final portion of the fight.

"Yeah! If you have a soul, you're not just a thing anymore. You're a living creature just like us. So, we can become friends!"

Tai's Digimon partner, who resembles an orange baby Tyrannosaurus. Like most, he has a personality similar to his human partner, if a little less hot-headed. Like the Digimon of later series' leaders, he is almost always the first to discover the next upgrade of the season and is generally the most powerful. He has the distinction of personally destroying three Big Bads all by himself.

In 02 he briefly gets captured by the Digimon Kaiser, and fights against his friends. Later on, he talks with BlackWarGreymon, and is the first to realize that he has a heart.

In tri., he’s the first partner Digimon to appear, fighting off a Kuwagamon that was attacking Tai. It's eventually implied that he is indeed the Koromon that Tai and Kari met during the Adventure pilot movie, having lost his memories of their first meeting during his reincarnation.

His Digivolution are as follows:

  • Fresh: Botamon, a small mon covered in black fur, with yellow eyes.
  • In-Training: Koromon, a round, pink mon, with long ears, red eyes, and sharp teeth. Blows bubbles.
  • Rookie: Agumon, his default form. In the pilot movie, he instead Digivolved into Big Agumon, a much larger and more aggressive version of his default.
  • Champion: Greymon, Essentially Agumon, but proper dinosaur size with a massive fire attack. In the pilot movie, he instead has Red Greymon, a much more feral and vicious version of Greymon.
  • Ultimate:
    • MetalGreymon (Vaccine), A cyborg Greymon with added mecha-armor and wings.
    • SkullGreymon, He also accidentally Dark-Digivolved into SkullGreymon, a Dracolich Digimon with an organic nuclear missile attached to its back, when Tai tried to force the Digivolution.
    • MetalGreymon (Virus), A viral version of MetalGreymon appeared in 02 when the Digimon Kaiser captured Greymon and made him Digivolve with his Dark Digivice.
  • Mega: WarGreymon, a Dragon Man Digimon with golden mech-armor.
    • Mega: WarGreymon X, only appears in Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon (Omegamon), the result of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon performing a Fusion together.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon X, only appears in Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode.
    • Mega (Mode Changes): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.
    • Mega/Ultra: Agumon - Bond of Bravery, a gigantic humanoid form born from his bond with Tai.
Attacks:
Agumon: Pepper Breath (JP: Baby Flame, IT: Baby Meteora, SV: Eldtunga), Split Fire, Sharp Claws, Claw Attack, Baby Burner
Greymon: Nova Blast (JP: Mega Flame, IT: Mega Meteora, SV: Diginovablixt), Bit Fire, Great Antler, Grey Tooth, Tail Crash

General Tropes

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Only Greymon lacks a claw attack of some description. Even SkullGreymon has one.
  • Artificial Limbs: MetalGreymon's left arm is mechanical. According to the card material it's adapted from Andromon technology.
  • Ax-Crazy: SkullGreymon's usual behavior is composed of rampaging and destroying everything in front of him.
  • Big Eater: His appetite can be pretty ferocious though when Tai force feeds him to become a Ultimate, he has his limits. His special ability on his Digimon Adventure tri. card is even hungry.
  • Bishōnen Line: Subverted first and straight at the end. MetalGreymon's organic body looks like a rugged, worn-up version of Greymon, but WarGreymon turns the line over its head with an elegant humanoid body.
  • Breath Weapon: Multiple, especially in the PSP game, where Agumon and Greymon each have two, and MetalGreymon has one.
  • Chest Blaster: MetalGreymon's Giga Blaster, which consists of firing missiles from his chest.
  • Crossdressing Voices: Japanese version only. Most dubs have Agumon voiced by a male actor, although in the English version, Koromon is voiced by a woman.
  • Cyborg: MetalGreymon is a cyborg version of Greymon with a metal-plated head, a cybernetic left arm, and a chest-plate capable of firing missiles.
  • Deadly Upgrade: Both SkullGreymon and MetalGreymon (Virus Type). SkullGreymon appeared when Tai tried to force Greymon to Digivolve to Ultimate and the Crest didn't react correctly. He appeared again in 02 when Digimon Kaiser tried to Digivolve Greymon to MetalGreymon with his Evil Rings. This caused the Kaiser to create the updated Evil Spirals to control Ultimate level Digimon and Agumon Digivolved into the Virus Type MetalGreymon.
  • Dem Bones: As SkullGreymon he is a walking skeleton held together by Killing Intent.
  • Dracolich: As his name implies, SkullGreymon is essentially a skeleton with a vaguely draconic-looking body shape and some organic exposed entrails. According to the material, his combat instinct is the only thing that keeps him animated.
  • Dragon Knight: WarGreymon started the tradition of Digimon protagonists becoming Dragon Knights as their most powerful Digivolutions.
  • Dragons Are Dinosaurs: They certainly breath fire. WarGreymon, basically a humanoid dinosaur, is identified as a Dragon Man.
  • Energy Ball: WarGreymon's Terra Force.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Most of his Digivolutions (and Agumon himself) evoke a Tyrannosaurus rex in body shape and mannerisms.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: WarGreymon spins rapidly in order to perform Brave Tornado.
  • Fiery Salamander: All of his forms from the Rookie level up are dinosaurs, and all of them have fire as their elemental power.
  • Fireballs: All of his fire attacks are described as fireballs, and just differing sizes and amounts reveals which attack is being used.
  • Flash Step: WarGreymon can do these.
  • Flying Brick: Has the classic power set as WarGreymon, although MetalGreymon and most Ultimate and Mega Digimon in general fit too.
  • Foil: To Gatomon, as she is the most mature and independent while he is rather childlike. This is the opposite of the dynamic of their partners, who are siblings.
  • Giant Flyer: As MetalGreymon he's among the largest Ultimate levels the team has, and is capable of flight with his tattered wings.
  • Glowing Eyelights of Undeath: Green ones, as SkullGreymon.
  • Good Is Dumb: He's not the brightest bulb in the shed, but he always means well.
  • Heroic Build: WarGreymon is humanoid and muscular under his armor.
  • Image Song: "Agumon Ondo" ("Agumon Dance"). In Digimon Adventure tri. he has "Agumon SUNba".
  • Kamehame Hadoken: WarGreymon's Terra Force! attack. It more resemble's Goku's Spirit Bomb attack, to the point of Shout-Out territory.
  • Lightning Bruiser: WarGreymon is fast, strong, and extremely durable.
  • Lizard Folk: WarGreymon is a Dragon Man Digimon.
  • Mirror Match:
    • Etemon sicks an evil Greymon with Black Eyes of Crazy on the group, and Agumon Digivolves to fight it. Unfortunately, Tai fed him too much, making him sluggish and dulling his reflexes. This cost him the fight until he dark Digivolved into SkullGreymon.
    • As WarGreymon he duels BlackWarGreymon to a tie.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: MetalGreymon is a giant, flying Tyrannosaurus rex with mech armor and nuclear warheads inside his chest!
  • Nice Guy: He is as kind hearted and compassionate as Tai.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: WarGreymon and MetalGreymon have short Fiery Redhead flowing from their helmets. This hair shows up on Kimeramon in 02.
  • Nuke 'em: MetalGreymon can launch tactical nuclear missiles from his chest, while SkullGreymon can launch one from his back.
  • One-Winged Angel: SkullGreymon and MetalGreymon (Virus), Agumon's Virus-type Ultimate levels, are more-than powerful enough to Curb-Stomp Battle multiple powerful Champion level Digimon.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: WarGreymon is identified as a Dragon Man, he's basically a humanoid dragon wearing armor.
  • Playing with Fire: A huge assortment of Breath Weapon attacks, like Agumon's Pepper Breath and Greymon's Nova Blast. WarGreymon uses this in the vein an enormous Energy Ball.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Averted. Agumon is a reptile Digimon and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.
  • Scary Skeleton: When Tai forces Greymon to digivolve to Ultimate, it results in him becoming Skull Greymon, a giant walking dinosaur skeleton who lashes out at everything around him in a berserker rage. For a short time afterward, Tai was afraid of having Agumon digivolve, worried that he would become Skull Greymon again.
  • Shockwave Stomp: WarGreymon performs one in his Digivolution sequence in Adventure and 02.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: As WarGreymon, his Non-Mammalian Hair is red, and his eyes are green.
  • Spin Attack: WarGreymon's Brave Tornado, where he spins like a drill with his claws over his head.
  • Stout Strength: Greymon and MetalGreymon both have sizable stomachs.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Justified since he's the protagonist's partner and downplayed, as Agumon doesn't take that much screentime from the other Digimon. However, WarGreymon has the most number of appearances in Adventure, 02 and tri. compared to the other Mega-level Partner Digimon.
  • The Power of the Sun: WarGreymon has various sun motifs; his Brave Shield has the Crest of Courage emblem (which is represented by the sun), a sun appears in the background during WarGreymon's digivolution sequence, and WarGreymon's Terra Force is essentially a large sphere of solar energy.
  • Tyrannosaurus rex: Agumon is essentially a tiny one, Greymon is a proper sized one with a horned helmet and MetalGreymon is a enormous, cyborg one.
  • Wolverine Claws: The Dramon Killers. The Movie shows WarGreymon without them.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Adaptation Personality Change: SkullGreymon, in the novelization. In the anime, the second SkullGreymon lays his eyes at Tai, he immediately tries to attack him in a berserk rage, while in the novelization, he views Tai as Not Worth Killing as he consider the boy as too weak to even bother with and leaves Tai be while he searches for more challenging prey.
  • Balloon Belly: After Tai force-fed Agumon to try and get him to Digivolve to Ultimate.
  • Determinator: In Our War Game, despite having been blasted all to crap by Diablomon, WarGreymon still summons up the energy to chase after it. Not that it helps much, mind.
  • Diagonal Cut: WarGreymon quickly defeats Mugendramon this way using the Dramon Killers on his arms.
  • Horn Attack: Greymon's Great Antler.
  • Mighty Glacier: Is this in the PSP game. Has the highest attack, second highest HP and third highest defense, but has the third lowest speed.
  • Sphere of Power: WarGreymon becomes enveloped in an orange one when charging at VenomMyotismon.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Delivers probably the most visceral and brutal death in the show to MetalSeadramon after the aforementioned Dark Master mortally wounds Whamon: using Brave Tornado, WarGreymon plows right through a River Of Power attack and proceeds to shred MetalSeadramon into hamburger meat from the inside-out, and as he watches MetalSeadramon fall he's visibly trembling with fury.
  • Weapon of X-Slaying: WarGreymon's Dramon Killer claws are highly effective at... well, killing Dramon type Digimon. This was a major plot point in the Dark Masters arc, as two of the four were Dramon, which allowed the protagonists to kill them off.
  • Wreathed in Flames: In his Digivolution to SkullGreymon, Greymon is covered in flames, and when they clear, SkullGreymon has taken his place.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Suffers this in "The Arrival of SkullGreymon." As Tai had overfed him as part of a misguided attempt to get him to digivolve, Greymon ends up sluggish and weak against Etemon's evil Greymon.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure 02

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/virusmetalgreymon.jpg
MetalGreymon (Virus)
  • Ambadassador: In the final episode of 02, Agumon is shown to have become the Digital Wold's ambassador to the United Nations.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The Digimon Kaiser captures him as Greymon using an Evil Ring for a couple of episodes, but he eventually breaks free.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: WarGreymon uses his Brave Shield to block a Terra Force from BlackWarGreymon.
  • Palette Swap: MetalGreymon (Virus) is one of the regular MetalGreymon, with yellow eyes instead of blue and blue skin instead of orange.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: This is more apparent in 02 than in the other seasons. Among the six Digimon who were Demoted to Extra, Agumon shows up a lot more than the others and has signifcantly more plot relevance than them. He's becomes the Digimon Kaiser's most powerful slave and gets two Dark Digivolutions during the short timeframe, Agumon's little sub-plot with BlackWarGreymon and the fact that Agumon is the only one to receive Qinglongmon's power a second time, allowing only him to Digivolve all the way to his Mega level, WarGreymon.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: Approaches BlackWarGreymon in Rookie form and offers to be his friend, prompting a conversation on existentialism. Most of the conversation goes over Agumon's head but he would have succeeded in befriending BlackWarGreymon if that area's Holy Stone wasn't shattered at the worst possible time.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

  • Affectionate Nickname: Called Agu-chan by Yuuko Yagami.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Is the first partner to return, jumping in front of an attack from a Kuwagamon to save Tai.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: In Confession, he is the first Digimon besides Tentomon to admit the dangers of infection and rebooting to his partner.
  • Flanderization: Agumon is depicted as even less intelligent and more of a Big Eater than before. The other Digimon are easily annoyed by his silly behaviour. His entire character becomes defined by his food obsession, to the point that you could make a drinking game out of how many of his lines are about wanting to eat something. None of the intelligence and maturity he shows in the original series and in 02 make it into tri.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: The finale of Tri reveals Tai's Agumon is the same Agumon Kari and Tai hatched from a DigiEgg when they were toddlers in the Adventure prequel movie. Digimon can apparently forget things between reincarnations, and Agumon himself didn't remember this. Meicoomon's data restored every memory a Digimon ever had across all incarnations.
  • Human Hammer-Throw: Well Digimon Hammer Throw, but WarGreymon spins MetalSeadramon around a few times before tossing him into the sky.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: One of the most pure-hearted of the Digimon. Zigzagged in Confession, he is one of first to fight Meikuumon and although he outlasts everyone else besides Tentomon (who was late to the fight), even he is eventually corrupted, but is also the first to shake the corruption at HerculesKabuterimon's urging.
  • Is It Something You Eat?: His first question when he hears a word that he doesn't know is to ask if it's tasty.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Used to a horrifying degree in Confession, when the infected MetalGreymon immediately Digivolves into WarGreymon on his own.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Agumon's Big Eater tendencies are usually Played for Laughs which in a great break in tri.
  • Tail Slap: Greymon whips Kuwagamon with is tail in tri.. Probably an actual attack, other Greymon have had moves named Tail Crash and Tail Slap.

"Besides, if you were gone, Matt, then what would I do? I've waited in this world forever just so I could meet you, and only you!"

Matt'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.

In 02, he helps to release Agumon from the Digimon Kaiser’s control, and relays Agumon’s message that BlackWarGreymon has a heart to the team. Also, the first digimon on Mars in the epilogue.

In tri., he’s as exasperated with Matt’s behaviour as ever.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

  • Fresh: Punimon, a red blob with three headbumps.
  • In-Training: Tsunomon, a round, orange-furred mon with one, knife-like horn. Blows Bubbles.
  • Rookie: Gabumon, his default form.
  • Champion: Garurumon, a large, wolfish beast that walks on four legs.
  • Ultimate: WereGarurumon, a Beast Man Digimon, basically an anthropomorphic Garurumon wearing punkish clothes.
  • Mega: MetalGarurumon, a cyborg version of Garurumon, with wings thrown in for good measure.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon (Omegamon), the result of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon performing a Fusion together.
    • Mega (Mode Changes): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.
    • Mega/Ultra: Gabumon - Bond of Friendship, a gigantic humanoid form born from his bond with Matt.

Attacks:
Gabumon: Blue Blaster (JP: Petit Fire, IT: Soffio Infuocato), Crush Nail, Little Horn, Hidden Knock
Garurumon: Howling Blaster (JP: Fox Fire, IT: Turbine Rovente), Freeze Fang, Garuru Thrust, Slamming Attack
WereGarurumon: Wolf Claw (JP: Kaiser Nail, IT: Artigli Sovrani), Garuru Kick (JP: Engetsugeri, IT: Calcio della Mezzaluna), Baldy Blow, Gauru Kick
MetalGarurumon: Metal Wolf Claw (JP: Cocytus Breath, IT: Turbine Glaciale), Freeze Bomber (EN: Metal Wolf Claw, IT: Siluro Congelante), Giga Missile (JP: Garuru Tomahawk), Ice Wolf Claw (JP: Grace Cross Freezer, IT: Missili Congelanti), Metal Fang, Metal Wolf Snout


General Tropes


Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Fur Against Fang: 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...
  • Hand Blast: WereGarurumon's Baldy Blow in the PSP game.
  • Horn Attack: Gabumon's Little Horn.
  • Ki Manipulation: WereGarurumon's Wolf Claw and Garuru Kick can be used in this fashion to give him ranged attack.
  • Lunacy: WereGarurumon Garuru Kick can be used to unleash a moon-shaped shockwave.
  • Man Bites Man: Garurumon's Freeze Fang is this coupled with An Ice Person, and MetalGarurumon bit WarGreymon's arm when they fought.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Would follow Matt even if it put him at odds with the other Chosen Children.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

  • Megaton Punch: Lands one on Alphamon as WereGarurumon, in the leadup to Omnimon.
  • Shrinking Violet: Male version. After losing his memories, he acts like this towards Matt.
  • Tornado Move: Garurumon's Foxfire looks like one in tri's opening and when it's used in Episode 4 of Confession.

  • Ultimate: Garudamon, A bigger red bird woman that shoots bigger fireballs in the shape of birds.
  • Mega: Phoenixmon (Hououmon), A golden, four-winged phoenix.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

Attacks:
Biyomon: Spiral Twister (JP: Magical Fire, IT: Fuoco Magico), Spiral Wing, Piyorin Attack, Dash Peck
Birdramon: Meteor Wing (IT: Colpo d'Ali Fiammante), Fire Flap, Mach Glide, Kick
Garudamon: Wing Blade (JP: Shadow Wing, IT: Aquila Incandescente), Fire Hurricane, Eagle Claw, Phoenix Claw (JP: Crimson Claw, IT: Artigli della Fenice)
Phoenixmon: Starlight Explosion, Crimson Flare, Life Force, Wing Flutter


General Tropes

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: She wears a ring around her leg. Phoenixmon does as well, bearing a Holy Ring on each leg. The ring sort of resembles an ID tag that naturalists usually place on birds to track them down after rescuing them, possibly alluding to the fact she is a Digimon with a partner and not a wild one (though the standard design for other Biyomon in the franchise is the same).
  • Bird People: Garudamon is the most anthropomorphic of Biyomon's Digivolutions, having bird claws as hands and Non-Mammalian Hair.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Spiral Twister! In the original, it's just called "Magical Fire".
  • Genki Girl: Only in some dubs.
  • Giant Flyer: When Digivolved. It's worth noting that of all the final forms of the protagonists' Digimon, Garudamon is tied with MegaKabuterimon as the largest of the lot.
  • Golden Super Mode: Her Mega level, Phoenixmon.
  • Image Song: "Watashi no Gosenfu" ("My Music Score"). In Digimon Adventure tri., she has "Heart wo Sagase" ("Finding my Heart").
  • Large Ham: Garudamon in the english dub.
    Garudamon: SORAA! I can FEEL your LOOOVE! It's making me STRONG!
  • Light 'em Up: Phoenixmon's Starlight Explosion. Garudamon's Wing Blade has shades of this too, being described as sacred flames and doing more damage to Digimon such as Myotismon.
  • Light Is Good: Phoenixmon.
  • Love Freak: Some dubs make Biyomon a bit overt about her affection towards Sora.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Birdramon, who is a cross between a bird and a dragon.
  • Noisy Nature: As Birdramon, she's prone to letting out a loud avian shriek. It wouldn't be so noteworthy if not for the fact that in the dub she did it enough for it to be put in the opening credits.
  • Nonmammalian Hair: Garudamon has long (valkyrie?) braids but is otherwise clearly a bird-mon. Phoenixmon has Fiery Redhead.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Birdramon is a -Dramon Digimon, making her a dragon. There's very little draconic about her though.
  • The Phoenix: The most obvious one is her Mega level, Phoenixmon, but both Birdramon and Garudamon also have firebird features. Biyomon herself is a brightly colored bird who is at least loosely associated with fire, further alluding to this concept.
  • Playing with Fire: Biyomon, Birdramon and Garudamon all have fire based attacks as their main weapons. Phoenixmon has it as her secondary attack.
  • Polly Wants a Microphone: A talking bird. Justified because all Digimon can talk.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Not as obvious as with Izzy, but you'll notice her speech patterns are more antiquated than the other Digimon.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: Garudamon's Wing Blade creates a fiery bird to strike the enemy.
  • Technicolor Fire: Biyomon's Spiral Twister attack.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Pink? Check. Jewelry? Check. Hair like structure? Check. Long blonde hair, in Garudamon's case? Check. Yeah, she's a girl.
  • Toothy Bird: As its Dramon type states, Birdramon, who is a hybrid between an avian creature and a dragon.
  • Verbal Tic: "-piyo".
  • Wreathed in Flames: In her Digivolutions sequence to Garudamon in Adventure and 02, a feature of Birdramon's is covered in flames, and Garudamon's corresponding feature emerges. Garudamon is also briefly surrounded by fire whenever she uses Wing Blade. Birdramon weaponizes this with her Mach Glide attack, which is a body blow on fire.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure


Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

  • Death Glare: Yokomon's expression in the opening minutes of Loss.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: After losing her memories after the reboot of the Digital World at the end of Confession, she treats Sora with a cold, antipathic attitude, not trusting the human girl nor believing that they used to be partner. Her feelings toward Sora starts to warm up however and she eventually come to accept her as her partner again after the battle against Machinedramon, in which Sora was almost crushed by the Dark Master when she tried to save Biyomon..
  • Power Glows: In tri., Birdramon has a faint golden glow apparently emanating from within her, fitting with her "firebird" image.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Loss due to both losing her memories and Sora's insistence of their past, Biyomon is rather cold to Sora for most of Loss. Happily she grows out of it by the end of the movie.

Tentomon

Click here  to see MegaKabuterimon
Click here  to see HerculesKabuterimon

Izzy's partner, who resembles a red winged robotic insect (tentoumushi means "ladybug"). Not as brainy as his partner, but sometimes with a little more common sense. Tends to rein in Izzy when his quest for knowledge goes a bit too far.

In 02, he helps to free captured Digimon from the Kaisers base, and lead the team to the first Holy Stone by informing them about Archnemon and Mummymon location.

In tri., he finally reaches his Mega level, HerculesKabuterimon.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

  • Fresh: Pabumon (Babumon), a green blob with a pacifier.
  • In-Training: Motimon, a pink blob with arms. Blows bubbles.
  • Rookie: Tentomon, his default form.
  • Champion: Kabuterimon, A big blue beetle that shoots electricity.
  • Ultimate: MegaKabuterimon (AtlurKabuterimon), A larger red version of Kabuterimon with a new horn and a shell on his back.
  • Mega: HerculesKabuterimon (HerakleKabuterimon), An even larger golden version of Kabuterimon, with a larger nasal horn and Kuwagamon-esque pincers as well.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

Attacks:
Tentomon: Super Shocker (JP: Petit Thunder, IT: Mini Saetta, SV: Superstöt), Twice Arm, Rolling Guard, Rolling Attack
Kabuterimon: Electro Shocker (JP: Mega Blaster, IT: Maxi Saetta, SV: Monsterstöt), Blink Thrust, Beet Horn, Scratch
MegaKabuterimon: Horn Buster (IT: Corno Demolitore, SV: Domedagsstöt), Mega Blaster, Wild Scratch, Edge Toss
HerculesKabuterimon: Mega Electro Shocker (JP: Giga Blaster), High Mega Blaster, Horn Buster Kai, Edge Toss Kai


General Tropes

  • Badass Baritone: HerculesKabuterimon is made of this, and fittingly enough, he's also the largest of the Mega forms.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: An insectoid Digimon, and surely the creepiest of the Partner Digimon, but he is actually a Nice Guy.
  • The Big Guy: An interesting case in that he is also The Smart Guy (see below), but Kabuterimon and his Digivolutions are fairly big, mean and strong.
  • Body to Jewel: MegaKabuterimon has a blue crystalline sphere on the back of his shell, and it is just as hard as the rest of it, as LadyDevimon has the chance to find out.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Which results in some Snark-to-Snark Combat with Izzy.
  • Energy Ball: Kabutertimon's Electro Shocker and MegaKabuterimon's Mega Blaster, as well as HerculesKabuterimon's High Mega Blaster, are giant spheres of electricity.
  • Eyeless Face: Only Tentomon has visible eyes in his line of Digivolution. The rest boast the old Xenomorph face.
  • Flight: All his forms. MegaKabuterimon is the most interesting, as it apparently has no wings under his shell; he flies instead with a rocket-like flame emission from his tail.
  • Giant Flyer: 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.
  • Golden Super Mode: His Mega level, HerculesKabuterimon.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Kabuterimon and Digivolutions often display rather brutal tactics, like chomping at his opponent with their teeth, using themselves as a flying battering ram, and showing crazily excessive attacks like destroying a freaking mini-sized planet.
  • Guttural Growler: MegaKabuterimon in the Swedish dub has an unbelievably deep, raspy and guttural voice.
  • Image Song: "Dengeki Rhapsody" ("Electric Shock Rhapsody"). In Digimon Adventure tri., he has "Kioku no Kakera" ("Fragments of Memory").
  • Kansai Regional Accent: The dub doesn't try to adapt it into an English equivalent.
  • Lightning Bruiser: All his Digivolutions are hulking yet capable of flight and very maneuverable.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: And complete with a triple jaw.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: While Tentomon has a pair of vestigial arms, his later forms have a fully functional extra pair. In tri. Tentomon is shown using his vestigial arms for more delicate maneuvering, like holding chopsticks, because his primary limbs don't have fingers.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: As MegaKabuterimon, he has visible muscles on the base of its forelimbs, and he is stronger than his earlier Digivolutions.
  • Nice Guy: A notable good guy. Even wild MegaKabuterimon are said to behave knight-like according to supplementary materials.
  • Pokémon Speak: Pabumon, his Fresh level, whose words only consist on saying "babu".
  • Power Pincers: Possesses some as HerculesKabuterimon.
  • Red Is Heroic: MegaKabuterimon's shell is blood colored, and it strikes damn good.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Pabumon and Motimon, which are Tentomon's Baby levels. Complete with a Cat Smile by Motimon and a pacifier sucking Pabumon.
  • Shock and Awe: The originator of electricity being the go-to element for insect Digimon.
  • Stone Wall: In the PSP game, where he has the highest defense, but poor attack.
    • In Confession, he Digivolves to HerculesKabuterimon, but can't bring himself to attack his infected friends. Instead, he pushes them back into the Digital World just as the reboot begins so they can all be collectively wiped of their corrupted data.
  • Thunder Beetle: Tentomon and his Digivolutions are all beetles that wield the element of lightning. While Tentomon is a ladybug, Kabuterimon and onward are rhino beetles as per the trope.
  • Use Your Head: An intuitive technique when you have a huge, heavily armored head, which also comes with an insectoid horn in his next Digivolutions.
  • The Watson: Izzy tends to have to explain what he's doing to him, and thus us.
  • Yellow Lightning, Blue Lightning: Orange as Tentomon, purple as Kabuterimon, orange AND purple as AtlurKaburetimon and yellow as HerculesKabuterimon.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Attack Its Weak Point: Everyone has a tough time fighting Andromon until Izzy notices sparks coming out of his leg. Kabuterimon zaps it, destroying a black gear in it and ending the threat.
  • Blow You Away: Kabuterimon's Blink Thrust.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Tentomon tries to keep Izzy grounded and in the real world (metaphorically speaking) as much as possible. He doesn't always succeed.
  • Doomy Dooms of Doom: In the Swedish dub, MegaKabuterimon's Horn Buster attack is renamed Domedags Stöt literally meaning Doomsday Shock.
  • Horn Attack: Kabuterimon's Beet Horn and HerculesKabuterimon's Horn Buster Revised. MegaKabuterimon uses Horn Buster this way once, in the final fight with Myotismon.
  • I Got You Covered: Sora rides with him so that Garudamon can attack Apocalymon without endangering her.
  • I Am What I Am: Tentomon shoots down his partner's alien theory, then asks if there is some kind of secret about his origin. Unfortunately for Izzy, this is an Armor-Piercing Question.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: The gigantic green blast he uses to destroy Vademon's attack is not named or used ever again (probably because it destroys all the area around him and could easily hit his allies as well), and is replaced by the more straight Horn Buster as MegaKabuterimon's main attack.
    • Interestingly enough, the European Spanish dub does name it, or at least lists a technique which is implied to be that, named Antenas Destructoras or Destroying Antennas.
    • The Swedish dub he calls out Domedags Stöt (meaning Doomsday Shock) when using it, the attack being the Swedish replacement for Horn Buster.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: So much that he has to shield Koshrio from his own attack after beating Vademon.
  • Razor Wind: Kabuterimon's Blink Thrust.
  • The Smart Guy: He beats the controlled Andromon on his debut not through superior strength or Tactical Rock–Paper–Scissors, but by using the brains.
  • What Could Have Been: There's lineart for Adventure that depicts MegaKabuterimon with blue coloring, rather than the red that was ultimately used.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

  • Dying as Yourself: In Confession, he convinces his infected friends to resist their infection long enough to be pushed through the portal to the Digital world as the reboot starts, causing their memories to be wiped.
  • Super Speed: Flavor Text on HerculesKabuterimon's tri card describes it as flying at supersonic speeds.

Mimi's partner, a plant-like Digimon who perhaps is the steady roots to Mimi's flights of fancy.

General Tropes

  • Whip It Good: Rosemon's Thorn Whip.
  • Winged Humanoid: As Lillymon, she's humanoid and has four leaf-shaped wings.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

Gomamon
Click here  to see Ikkakumon
Click here  to see Zudomon
Click here  to see Vikemon

Joe'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.

In 02, he tries to keep BlackWarGreymon from destroying a Holy Stone.

In tri., Joe’s new responsibilities causes some friction between the two, but they make up, and Gomamon finally reaches his Mega level, Vikemon.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

  • Fresh: Pitchmon, a white fish-like creature.
  • In-Training: Bukamon (Pukamon), a floating grey seal. Blows bubbles.
  • Rookie: Gomamon, his default form.
  • Champion: Ikkakumon, a giant white walrus that fires torpedoes from his horn.
  • Ultimate: Zudomon, a big grey and orange walrus with a turtle shell and a hammer.
  • Mega:
    • Plesiomon, a large plesiosaur reminiscent of Gomamon, only seen in the Wonderswan games.
    • Vikemon, a large walrus in viking attire, seen in the PSP adaptation and Digimon Adventure tri..
      • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

Attacks:
Gomamon: Marching Fishes (IT: Pesci d'Assalto), Surfer Dive, Bubble Barrier, Sharp Edge
Ikkakumon: Harpoon Torpedo (JP: Harpoon Vulcan, IT: Arpione Esplosivo), Northern Lights, Icicle Coat, Horn Attack
Zudomon: Vulcan's Hammer (JP: Hammer Spark, IT: Martello Saettante), Hammer Boomerang (IT: Martello Boomerang), Horn & Tusk, Thor's Hammer
Vikemon: Arctic Blizzard, Viking Axe, Mega Gain Guard, Mjöllnir


General Tropes

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Zudomon and Vikemon's belts. Vikemon also wears a red loincloth, a cape and a helmet.
  • Atlantis Is Boring: 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.
  • Badass Moustache: Zudomon has an ol' viking style one.
  • Badass Cape: Wears one as Vikemon.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: The joker of the group, yet his Ultimate level has a weapon that can damage Chrome Digizoid, a nearly indestructible metal.
  • Big Eater: Not to the extent of Agumon, but he does love to chow down.
  • Cool Helmet: A viking one as Vikemon.
  • Cute Little Fangs: As Gomamon, because his next Digivolutions have fully developed his inner walrus tusk side.
  • Drop the Hammer: Zudomon's wields Thor's Hammer.
  • Epic Flail: Vikemon's Mjöllnir.
  • Facial Markings: Purple markings are around Gomamon's face.
  • Fiery Redhead: Gomamon can be very challenging and easy to offend but it's always done in an hilarious way.
  • Flight: Bukamon is able to levitate.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Zudomon doesn't take any risk against the bad guys while he has his giant hammer.
  • Hammerspace: Where do those fish come from, exactly?
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Marching Fishes makes him more useful than anyone else in their Rookie forms. And it comes in surprisingly handy more than once (saving the team from falling off a cliff, pushing an island to shore, helping distract an enemy Greymon). In one instance, Gomamon managed to summon some fish in the middle of a desert. And they could fly. They proved surprisingly helpful.
  • Horn Attack: Ikkakumon's main technique, while Zudomon combines his with his tusks. Zudomon also manages to parry a lightning attack with his.
  • Horny Vikings: Vikemon is based on them.
  • An Ice Person: Ikkakumon and Vikemon can both attack and raise defense using ice.
  • Image Song: "Muteki no Bataashi" ("An Invincible Flutter Kick"). In Digimon Adventure tri., he has "You can".
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Bukamon, and his Digivolutions.
  • Keet: Gomamon is as hyperactive as Joe, but in a more cheerful and less dramatic way.
  • Loincloth: Wears a red one as Vikemon.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Ikkakumon's Harpoon Torpedo.
  • Magikarp Power: Gomamon's attacks rely on summoning a school of fish which aren't as dangerous as his other fellow Digimon and his claws only serve as a Running Gag, except in the very first episode which he used for tackling and unbalancing Kuwagamon. Once he Digivolves, he becomes much more useful and powerful.
  • Mighty Glacier: His Digivolutions.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Zudomon is a huge anthropomorphic walrus with a turtle shell on his back. Who, ah, also wields a hammer.
  • Non-Action Guy: As Gomamon, he's not much of a fighter. Not through any fault of his own, mind you, he just didn't have any special offensive attacks. Heck, Joe did more fighting than Gomamon did! Averted with his Champion to Mega levels, however, which are excellent fighters.
  • Not So Different: With Joe interestingly. If they see someone in need, they'll help them even though they got their issues (Gomamon being seal-like on land, and Joe having his anxiety), which is why they became doctors (Well with Gomamon more like his kinda assistant doing the best he can) despite Joe's sort of Daddy Issues which emotionaly affected Gomamon.
  • Odd Friendship: With Joe.
  • Pelts of the Barbarian: Wears a fur cape as Vikemon.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: Gomamon is the protagonist of some of the funniest moments of the series, like posing as a "living" plushie in Tokyo or eating Joe's food sources and feeling his shaking anger after Devimon split File Island; and has a Running Gag of his own. That's why he provides the picture of the Funny section.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Pitchmon.
  • Roboteching: Ikkakumon's Harpoon Torpedo's are capable of this.
  • Shock and Awe: Zudomon's Vulcan's Hammer.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Zudomon's Hammer Boomerang. Using it is what allowed Zudomon to wound MetalEtemon.
  • Too Many Belts: Zudomon and Vikemon.
  • Turtle Power: Zudomon wears a turtle shell on his back.
  • Wily Walrus: As Ikkakumon, Zudomon, and Vikemon. He's still a good guy, but his increased power combined with his sharp wit and cunning gives him a distinct edge over his enemies.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Marching Fishes... summons fish. Not even big fish. It's not much use in a fight against anything above a Rookie.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Breath Weapon: Northern Lights is expelled from Ikkakumon's mouth.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Stranded in the ocean on a bed with Joe, Gomamon fails to understand the idea of rationing food for later, eating all of it then and there. He defends himself with the stock "it is later, you told me that five minutes ago".
  • Herd-Hitting Attack: All of his Digivolutions have one of this in the PSP game.
  • Making a Splash: In the PSP game Gomamon he can both attack and raise his attack through water, though prior to it he was mostly this In Name Only, as Gomamon could only attack through fish, and Ikkakumon and Zudomon were Non-Elemental and Shock and Awe respectively.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Zudomon stops MetalEtemon's gloating as the full metal monkey brags how he's made of Chrome Digizoid and therefore impermeable by revealing his hammer is also made of Chrome Digizoid. MetalEtemon doesn't last long after that.
  • Running Gag: Whenever it's mentioned to Gomamon to give a hand, someone (most times it's Joe) points at his clawed fins as "Those hands?". At the end of Adventure, he finally gives his hand to Joe, to shake it and say goodbye til next time.

Click here  to see MagnaAngemon
Click here  to see Seraphymon

T.K.'s partner, who starts off looking like a pig with wings, and the most childish of the Digimon. And as it turns out, also the most powerful.

In 02, he's back with T.K. and has probably changed less than his partner has, which causes a bit of angst. Rarely if ever becomes Angemon.

    • Courage: Baronmon (Baromon), a Demon Man Digimon, who can summons meteor with his Meteor Dance. Only appears in a crossover in Digimon Digital Card Battle.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Angemon is generally kind and caring, but has no patience for evildoers.

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: MagnaAngemon's Excalibur.
  • Blob Monster: Poyomon.
  • Blow You Away: Boom Bubble, Patamon's dramatically weak main attack. Thousand Wing and God Tornado too.
  • Blush Sticker: Tokomon.
  • Cartoon Creature: Unlike the rest of the main Digimon, who are at least somewhat recognizable (Agumon's a dinosaur, Gabumon's a dog, Biyomon's a bird, Tentomon's a beetle, etc.) it's very difficult to figure out just what the heck Patamon is. Is he a bat? A hamster with wings for ears? A rabbit? A literal flying pig? Humorously, he denies that last one (though he also kind of looks like a guinea pig).
  • Cool Helmet: His Digivolutions. Angemon wears a metal helm which covers his head and eyes, while MagnaAngemon's is rather a tall headdress made of metal and a translucid material, and Seraphymon's is a good ol' full head helm.
  • Cool Sword: MagnaAngemon's Excalibur. Seraphymon has some appear behind him in his Digivolution sequence in tri.
  • Crossdressing Voices: As you can see, Joe, Matt and Tentomon are the only male characters voiced by men in the Japanese version this season.
    • In the English version, this gets averted once he Digivolves.
  • Cue the Flying Pigs: Well, not literally (though Patamon's body shape somewhat evokes it, and T.K. plays with the similarity when having an Imagine Spot about his Digivolutions) but considering his picture, the stuff he pulls off comes across as pretty damned unlikely.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny does this to its target. Where it takes them varies, but ranges from literally this trope to Oblivion to even Nothing. Regardless, the destination is a Fate Worse than Death.
  • Ear Wings: Patamon's wings are located on top of his head, so it is not easy to tell whether they are wings or actually ears used as wings.
  • Elemental Punch: Hand of Fate is a holy one.
  • The Faceless: All his Digivolutions have at least half of their faces obscured.
  • Facial Markings: MagnaAngemon has the Crest of Hope on his forehead, though it is obscured by his helmet, and can only be seen in his Digivolution sequence.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Both Angemon and MagnaAngemon: the former wears a golden shoulder plate, a blue cloth and brown knuckle protectors in one side, and a a golden bracelet in the other, along with different boots; the latter, different armor and weapons distribution and a black armored sleeve.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Getting thrown into MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny is this, as it doesn't kill the victim, instead banishing them forever to another dimension with no escape.
  • Flight: All of his Digivolutions from Patamon upwards can fly, though Patamon's flight is not much more efficient (or possibly even less) than his walk.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Angemon and MagnaAngemon wear a very tight cloth so pure white as to be divine.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Angemon and MagnaAngemon.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: His Digivolutions have the expected feathery angel wings, but Patamon himself, in a truly odd case, has bat-like wings typically associated with evil beings.
  • Guardian Angel: Patamon's Digivolution line Invokes this. In the dub, he and T.K. even talk about the concept before we see Patamon's Digivolution.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: MagnaAngemon uses a sword, while Angewomon uses a bow.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Angemon and MagnaAngemon, like pretty much all angel Digimon, have blonde hair.
  • Hand Blast: Angemon's Hand of Fate and MagnaAngemon's Soul Banish.
  • Head Pet: Patamon likes to spend much of his time on T.K.'s head, as his flying ability is limited because of his weight and his legs are very short.
  • Heavenly Blue: Angemon's loin cloth and Seraphymon's armor. MagnaAngemon's Soul Banish too.
  • Hidden Eyes: In his regular Digivolutions from Angemon up, due to their helmets.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Angemon and his Digivolutions have a literal holy hand grenade. It is extremely strong against undead and demonic opponents, which tended to fill the role of Big Bad in Adventure. Angemon was able to oneshot Devimon, and defeated Phantomon easily, despite the latter being at the Ultimate level. As MagnaAngemon, he was able to drive Piedmon away and was the one to score the killing blow on him.
  • Image Song: "Don't Stop Pata Pata". In Digimon Adventure tri., he has "Daisuki-ism" ("I love you-ism").
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: Patamon's make him look unable to break a glass, but beware his Digivolutions.
  • Laser Blade: MagnaAngemon's Excalibur.
  • Light Is Good: His Digivolutions, naturally.
  • Loincloth: Angemon and Seraphymon wear one over their attires. The latter has a pretty fancy one.
  • Magikarp Power: Patamon's easily the weakest of the main Digimon at the Rookie level, and can't do much in a fight. Then he Digivolves into Angemon...
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Despite his small size and Cute Little Fangs, Tokomon has a surprisingly large, almost creepy set of pointed teeth.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Angemon and MagnaAngemon.
  • Olympus Mons: Seraphymon, one of the Celestial Digimon.
  • Our Angels Are Different: His Digivolved post-Rookie level features angels of the Winged Humanoid variety.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Angemon wears a blue loincloth, while Angewomon wears a pink scarf.
  • Purple Is Powerful: MagnaAngemon wears purple armor and wields a purple sword.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: As Poyomon, Tokomon and Patamon.
  • Rule of Symbolism: The four tiny metal objects embedded in Angemon's chest seem to evoke some Christian imagery, possibly the Holy Nails and/or the stigmata.
  • Sensual Spandex: Angemon.
  • Simple Staff: Angemon's Angel Rod, a golden staff he occasionally uses with other techniques and more frequently to club enemies down.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: Angemon blocks one of VenomMyotismon's attacks this way, and does the same to avoid Cherubimon's black spheres in the first 02 movie.
  • Story-Breaker Power: MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny gets rid of its opponent for goods and all if it manages to close with it inside, no matter the level or power of the bad guy. From an Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors perspective, the whole line also qualifies as this; holy attacks are specially effective against undead or demonic opponents, such as Devimon, Phantomon, Myotismon or Piedmon. This is downplayed in the second season, even when he's fighting Digimon he should have a clear advantage over.
    • The best example actually comes from 02 despite the general downplaying, where MagnaAngemon still managed to almost solo BlackWarGreymon, an Mega level who is not demonic, so MagnaAngemon's attacks were not strengthened. The only reason he failed was because BlackWarGreymon destroyed the Holy Stone granting him the power to be in his Ultimate level at the last second. Note BlackWarGreymon managed to fight Imperialdramon Fighter Mode and WarGreymon to a draw simultaneously later.
  • Thinking Up Portals: MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny, which whips opponents out of the match. Where it leads is a different story in each dub, but all of them are quite scary (if you are interested, the destination is alternately translated as the Hell, the World of Darkness or even the Nothing).
  • Too Many Belts: Angemon (on his shin) and MagnaAngemon (on his arm).
  • Winged Humanoid: From Angemon upwards.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Badass Boast: In the dub, Angemon tries to deflect attention from the sacrifice by assuring T.K. that he'll win.
  • Best for Last: The final partner to reach both Champion and Ultimate forms, and usually the most powerful of all.
  • Can't Catch Up: Struggles with this heavily in the PSP game.
    • First, the other party members reach the Champion level, making him much less useful than they are, since they can take and dish out much more damage than he can. Then, he dies to defeat Devimon, which means he get's no EXP and is unusable until after Etemon is defeated, giving the rest of the party a level lead.
    • Once you can use him again, he can't Digivolve to Angemon, while other party members get their Ultimate level Digivolutions. Furthermore, once you can use Angemon again, there is literally one level to use him before Gatomon joins, and she always has higher attack, defense and speed than he does, the same advantage over Nightmare Soldiers, and can reach the Ultimate level.
  • Cast From HP: Seraphymon's Testament.
  • Combat Medic: MagnaAngemon has a technique which can heal the entire group of partner Digimon from any dark influence or attack, and this comes handy after Piedmon turns them into dolls. In the PSP game this is translated as a revival move, allowing MagnaAngemon to bring back an ally whose HP has dropped to 0.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Patamon during his battle against DemiDevimon. As he doesn't have a significant offensive like the rest of the partner Digimon of his level nor a surprisingly dangerous attack like DemiDevimon, he takes advantage of having a better distributed body mass and simply tackles him head first, knocking the digi-bat away.
  • Disney Death: See Heroic Sacrifice for more details. He dies taking out Devimon, but comes back to life a day later.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: He Digivolves into MagnaAngemon near the end of the series before Piedmon's defeat and the upcoming battle afterwards (just two episodes from the end of the series).
  • Energy Ball: MagnaAngemon's Soul Banish and Seraphymon's Divine Breaker.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Angemon used all his power to defeat Devimon, thus reverting him back to a Digitama.
  • Holy Burns Evil: His main advantage against the antagonists is this, by fact of several of them being Nightmare Soldiers, although both Devimon and Piedmon were powerful enough that just exploiting Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors wasn't enough.
  • Just in Time: Saves T.K. from being crushed by Devimon as Angemon, shows up again when WereGarurumon is being beaten by Myotismon, and saves T.K. and Kari from falling to their doom at the hands of Piedmon after he finally reached his Ultimate level Digivolution.
  • Lampshade Hanging: In one audio drama, he yells out, "I want to Digivolve every week like everyone else!"
  • Lethal Harmless Powers: Patamon's Boom Bubble itself is not a very useful attack, but DemiDevimon should have thought better before throwing his poison needles against an opponent who can blow them back to him. Given how lethal they happened to be, it can be said that the baddie almost got killed by his own attack.
  • Pokémon Speak: As the newborn Poyomon, he can only sprout "poyo" as his only words.
  • Red Baron: MagnaAngemon is called The Holy Swordsman in his debut episode title.
  • The Red Mage: Can both attack and heal when MagnaAngemon.
  • Speech Impediment: As Tokomon and Patamon, he often pronounces T.K.'s name in the Japanese dub as "Takeryu."
  • Tornado Move: Patamon's Thousand Wing and Angemon's God Tornado.
  • Undying Loyalty: All the Digimon are this, but Patamon has the actual death to prove it.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure 02

Click here  to see Shakkoumon

  • Achilles' Heel: The Dark Tower Digimon, not being natural, are unaffected by Angemon's holy attacks.
  • Badass Cape: Baronmon wears one.
  • Best for Last: Patamon and Armadillomon are the last partners to DNA Digivolve, but Shakkoumon manages to stand up to and fight BlackWarGreymon, a Mega level compared to Shakkoumon's Ultimate, on his own.
  • Colony Drop: Baronmon's Meteor Dance, triggered by his Magic Dance.
  • Combination Attack: As Pegasusmon, he has one with Nefertimon, Golden Noose, which creates a thread of golden light to tie things up with.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Angemon gets hit with this HARD. His holy attacks that are super effective against all the evil Digimon they fought in Adventure mean nothing against the artificially created Dark Tower Digimon. However, he remains powerful enough to almost solo BlackWarGreymon, a Dark Tower Mega, as MagnaAngemon.
    • Although it's not explained why he can't one-shot MarineDevimon and SkullSatamon especially when he at that time could become MagnaAngemon.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Baronmon looks scary, but he's not evil.
  • Deadly Disc: Shakkoumon's Kachina Bombs.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Seems like Patamon been picking up the habit from Gatomon.
  • Energy Weapon: Pegasusmon's Equus Beam attack, which fires a triangular energy blast.
  • Eye Beams: Shakkoumon's Justice Beam.
  • Flash Step: Angemon performs some to avoid MetalMamemon's attack.
  • Flechette Storm: Pegasusmon's Wind Mane attack, which fires needles from its mane. It was a rather handy attack for destroying multiple Dark Rings back when the Big Bad was the Kaiser for a reason.
  • Fusion Dance: Shakkoumon is created through one between Angemon and Ankylomon.
  • Giant Flyer: Angemon in Diablomon’s Counterattack.
  • Light 'em Up: as Pegasusmon.
  • Making a Splash: as Manbomon.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Surprisingly, yes, he has this in the form of Baronmon in Digimon Digital Card Battle. Baronmon is based from Barong, a King of Spirits in Bali mythology.
  • Pegasus: The general design of Pegasusmon, though it has the same fur as Patamon.
  • Playing with Fire: as Baronmon.
  • Red Boxing Gloves: Wears a pair as Manbomon.
  • Superhero Sobriquets: As Pegasusmon, Amakakeru Kibou (Soaring Hope) in the original. Flying Hope in the English dub, and il Vento della Speranza (The Wind of Hope) in the Italian dub. Munasawagi no Hikari (Foreboding Light) as Manbomon. Shakkoumon has one in his debut episode tile: Steel Angel.
  • The Worf Effect: This time around, Angemon had a tendency to get this. Meanwhile, Seraphymon's underwhelming debut in the film kickstarted his recurring tendency to be this in Digimon canon as a whole.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

  • Blade Spam: MagnaAngemon uses Excalibur in this fashion to quickly defeat a horde of Evilmon in Our Future.
  • Diving Kick: Seraphymon lands one on Mugendramon in Loss.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Patamon considers forgetting about T.K. (which would happen as a consequence of a reboot) worse than "being deleted" (i.e. being killed as a Digimon).
  • Holy Halo: One glows around Angemon and Gatomon before they deal the final blow to a Kuwagamon in Reunion.
  • Magic Missile Storm: How Hand of Fate is used in Confession, with Angemon firing one every punch as he attacks Angewomon.
  • Megaton Punch: How Hand of Fate is used in Reunion, unlike the Hand Blast of previous seasons. It returned to being a Hand Blast in Confession.
  • Shipper on Deck: During Our Future, T.K. tries to comfort Kari and get her to snap out of her Heroic BSoD after Tai's apparent death at the end of Coexistence. During this scene, T.K. grabs Kari by her shoulders while telling her to stop taking all of her burdens alone and that he worries for her. Patamon's reaction is to blush and cover his eyes while telling T.K. that he definitely isn't looking.
  • Shoot the Dog: After learning he is infected, he asks the other Digimon to kill him before he goes feral. The other Digimon refuse.
  • Spontaneous Weapon Creation: He creates his staff in a flash of yellow light during Confession.
  • Typhoid Mary: Zigzagged in Confession. Patamon learns he is infected but remain sane for a time, however he knows he'll lose his mind in time. He worries he'll infect the other Digimon. However, the real Typhoid Mary is Meikuumon and all of the Digimon are already infected.

"I was waiting for the eighth Chosen Child. Kari. I was waiting for you!"

The 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 youthful innocence.

She returns in 02 and is a little more friendly, although she's had a power downgrade after losing her Holy Ring. Without it, she's only as powerful as a Rookie.

She's back again in tri., and is back at full Champion level power with her Holy Ring, fighting alongside the other Champion level Digimon.

    • Courage: Lynxmon, only appears in the D-3 virtual pet.

  • Ultimate (DNA): Silphymon, a white & red warrior with Aquilamon's feathers, Gatomon's ears, and a metal visor.
  • Mega:
    • Magnadramon (Holydramon), a giant pink-furred dragon with traits of other creatures used in the Hurricane Touchdown movie and the Wonderswan series, various extraneous games and Digimon Adventure tri.
    • Ophanimon (Ofanimon), Seraphymon's Distaff Counterpart, seen in Digimon Battle Spirit and the PSP adaptation of the anime.
    • Ophanimon: Falldown Mode, a Fallen Angel version of Ophanimon, who wields a scythe. Only seen in Digimon Adventure tri.
      • Mega (Fusion): Ordinemon, the result of Ophanimon: Falldown Mode and Raguelmon forcibly merging together.
    • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

General Tropes

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Her Holy Ring, which she loses in 02 and is revealed to be an important MacGuffin at the very end of same season.
  • Angelic Beauty: Angewomon and Ophanimon.
  • Bare-Fisted Monk: While most of the other Champion levels fight with elemental powers or laser beams, Gatomon achieves the same results with punching and kicking.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Angewomon and Ophanimon.
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Gatomon and Angewomon
    • For Gatomon it is more like "Cuteness" rather than beauty. Despite being whipped in tortured all of her prior to becoming a good cat all Gatomon has to show for it is a scar underneath the paw gloves direcly on her paw that all of her species naturally and conveniently wear. It is pretty easy to forget about how "damaged" she was because of this.
    • Angewomon shows more skin than her other human-like angel battle-mate Angemon and she doesn't show any scars that Gatomon "has". She shows her legs and her belly button and there is nothing off about the area, She is often used as the show's Miss Fanservice and shots of her angel butt are common despite her "scars".
  • Blush Sticker: YukimiBotamon and Salamon.
  • Breath Weapon: Magnadramon's Holy Flame.
  • Cat Fight: Appropriately enough, Angewomon vs. LadyDevimon, on two occasions in both Adventure and 02.
    • And taken literally whenever she fights as Gatomon or Nefertimon.
  • Cat-like Dragons: One of her Mega forms is Magnadramon, a dragon Digimon that combines an Asian dragon's serpentine body with a very lion-like head. It's also furry instead of scaly.
  • Cats Are Magic: Gatomon is a Holy-species Digimon who Digivolutionary line invokes creatures of mythology and religion.
  • Cats Are Mean: Before her Heel–Face Turn.
  • Chainmail Bikini:
    • The little armor Angewomon wears consists of her helm and a breastplate. A "breastplate" which amounts to little more than a metal bra. Ophanimon is better with this, but still exposes her midriff.
    • Nefertimon's armor — consisting of gauntlets, a full headed helmet, a breastplate, and pauldrons that would make Space Marines proud. This time the breastplate, while shapely, does fully covers her abdomen. However, her lower half of her body is lacking any armor at all.
  • Close-Range Combatant: Unlike the most of the other Champion levels, Gatomon has no ranged attack.
  • Cool Helmet: Angewomon wears one similar to Angemon's, but with no back. Ophanimon wears one adorned with the faces of an eagle, a bull and a lion with a red mane. Ophanimon Falldown Mode wears one with spikes and bat wings.
  • Cute Bruiser: WAY stronger than she looks.
  • The Cynic: The most skeptical and mature of the Digimon, she is the quickest to pick up when there is a problem.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Angewomon to both Angemon and MagnaAngemon, being more similar in looks to Angemon and was originally an Angel-type Digimon, but has eight wings, the Ultimate level and a weapon on an arm like MagnaAngemon, and was reclassified as a Archangel-type Digimon.
  • Dragons Are Divine: Magnadramon certainly is.
  • Energy Bow: Angewomon's Celestial Arrow.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Angewomon shines with a rainbow aura when using Celestial Arrow, and both Heaven's Charge and Eden's Air cover the air with rainbow light. Angewomon had the rainbow aura used for Celestial Arrow all the time in her first appearance, as well as in the first 02 movie.
  • Evil Counterpart: Angewomon has one in LadyDevimon, Devimon's Distaff Counterpart.
  • The Faceless: Anegewomon's face is half covered by her helm, while Nefertimon and Ophanimon's faces are fully covered by their mask and helm, respectively.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Angewomon.
  • Feathered Dragons: Magnadramon sports five pairs of feathered wings.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Allows her claws to stick out.
  • Flight: All but one of Gatomon's Digivolved forms can fly.
  • Fusion Dance:
    • In 02, Silphymon is formed by one between Aquilamon and Gatomon.
    • In tri., Ophanimon Falldown Mode becomes Ordinemon, a gigantic humanoid angel-horror, upon fusing with Raguelmon.
  • Gemstone Assault: Nefertimon's Queen's Paw and Ophanimon's Sefriot Crystals.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Angewomon and Ophanimon.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Nefertimon, Angewomon, Ophanimon and Magnadramon all possess varying numbers of fluffy angel wings, while Butterflamon has insect wings. Ophanimon Falldown Mode has four golden batlike ones.
  • Guardian Entity: What drove her on in life: Knowing that she was meant to find and defend someone. And this is even before becoming Angewomon.
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Angewomon uses a bow, while Angemon uses a staff and MagnaAngemon uses a sword. Mostly Averted though, as Gatomon fights solely with physical combat, while Angemon's most powerful attack is a ranged one. And as shown by her fight with LadyDevimon in episode 50 of Adventure and Confession, Angewomon's perfectly capable of fighting physically too.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Most humanoid angel Digimon have blonde hair. It's one of their things.
  • Hidden Eyes: Angewomon's helm covers up her eyes. They do exist, and can be seen in her Digivolution sequence. Ophanimon's helm covers her eyes too.
  • Holy Halo: Heaven's Charge first manifests as a halo of golden light above Angewomon's head, and turns back into the halo to absorb the attacks of her fellow partner Digimon. One also glows around Gatomon and Angemon before they deal the final blow to a Kuagamon in Reunion.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Angewomon and Ophanimon's attacks. Curiously, despite wearing a Holy Ring, Gatomon's is not this.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: When she's first introduced and understandingly very bitter. They turn into Innocent Blue Eyes after Wizardmon's death.
  • Image Song: "Getting up". In Digimon Adventure tri., she has "Together as one".
  • In a Single Bound: Gatomon has some epic jumping abilities, leaping from the roof of a neighbouring building to Kari's balcony in Adventure, and leaping into the sky to punch a Snimon in the face in 02.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Magnadramon and Tylomon.
  • Kick Chick: As Gatomon, her strongest attack is Neko Kick, and Angewomon uses a few kicks in Confession.
  • Lady of War: Angewomon. The grace gets really toned down a notch if the fight involves LadyDevimon.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She managed to take on five Digimon on the same Digivolution level easily.
  • Light Is Good: Upon re-discovering her memories.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Salamon’s Puppy Howling, which was known as Salamon's move since her appearence in Adventure, but wasn't used until Loss.
  • Megaton Punch: Gatomon's Lightning Paw.
  • Metamorphosis Monster: Her Digivolution line seems quite random, but it's actually almost linear, starting with a couple of Holy Beasts and ending with the Holy Dragon known as the greatest of all Beast Digimon. Thing is, that one slot left over is filled by Angewomon, a strange example of a prematurely crossed Bishōnen Line that probably has more to do with Patamon's Digivolutionary line than it does her own.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Angewomon and Ophanimon. Angewomon's digivolve animation in Adventure 1 even has a shot of her backside.
  • Non-Elemental: As Gatomon, she fights with punches and kicks, unlike the holy powers of her Digivolved forms.
  • Older Than They Look: Digivolutionary-wise. Gatomon is an Champion level Digimon, but her size and cute design make her look like a Rookie level Digimon.
  • Olympus Mons: Magnadramon, one of the Four Great Dragons and Ophanimon, one of the Celestial Digimon.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Angewomon and Ophanimon are both winged humanoids, Magnadramon is a hybrid of an angel and a dragon and Nefertimon is a sphinx-angel hybrid Armor level. Ophanimon Falldown Mode is a fallen angel.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Magnadramon is a hybrid of an angel and a dragon, while Tylomon is a sea dragon.
  • The Paralyzer: Angewomon's Heaven's Charge can paralyze evil Digimon, and Gatomon can do the same with Cat's Eye Hypnotism.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Angewomon wears a pink scarf, while Angemon wears a blue loincloth.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: She's smaller than most Rookie levels, but she's no weaker than the other Champion levels when at full power.
  • Playing with Fire: Magnadramon's Holy Flame.
  • Power Glows: Angewomon shines with a rainbow aura when using Celestial Arrow, and a pink one when using Heaven's Charm. She also glows pink before using a kicking attack in Confession.
  • Precious Puppy: Salamon.
  • Redemption Demotion: Zigzagged.
    • After joining the team in Adventure, Gatomon has to Digivolve to take part in fights. However, this is because they start fighting mostly Ultimate and Mega levels then. The one time they fight fellow Champion levels, she fights them without Digivolving. It's not that Gatomon is weaker after joining the good guys, it's that the opponents she faces are stronger.
    • Then in 02, in order to give her a reason to Armor Digivolve, Gatomon has her power cut in half due to the loss of her Holy Ring, making her an Champioin level with the power of a Rookie level.
    • In tri., she's back to being as strong as the rest of the Champion levels, fighting alongside them without Digivolving.
  • Retcon: In Angewomon's analyser profile in episode 38 of Adventure she's described as an Angel Digimon, like Angemon. On her profile on 02's website, she's described as an Archangel Digimon, like MagnaAngemon, which has remained her classification in Adventure media since, like the PSP game.
  • Sacred Bow and Arrows: Two, Angewomon's Celestial Arrow, which provides the page image, and the Arrow of Light she uses to give Tai the ability to Digivolve Agumon into WarGreymon.
  • Scaled Up: Magnadramon, although she still looks mammalian.
  • Sensual Spandex: Angewomon's clothing.
  • Shock and Awe: Angewomon's Celestial Arrow has electricity crackle around the tip, and is described as releasing electricity of herculean strength in her Analyzer profile.
  • The Smart Guy: It's mentioned in 02 that she's the one who taught Kari about how the distortions in one world affect another, and in Confession she alone of the Digimon understands the consequences the reboot will have on them straight away, and explains them to the others.
  • The Straight and Arrow Path: Angewomon's Celestial Arrow.
  • Team Mom: 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.
  • Too Many Belts: Angewomon has four.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: Angewomon's single opera glove turns into a bow.
  • Tuckerization: Salamon is named after dub producer Terri-Lei O'Malley's pet cat.
  • Winged Humanoid: As Angewomon and Ophanimon. And Ophanimon Falldown Mode.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ofanimon2.jpg
Ophanimon

  • The Adjectival Superhero: In her debut episode title, Angewomon is called Sparkling Angewomon.
  • Armor and Magic Don't Mix: Averted; Ophanimon can use both offensive and healing powers despite the armor.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: 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.
  • Bittersweet Ending: More so than the other main Digimon in the season finale. Gatomon finally unites with Kari after years of waiting, only to be separated again. Forever (maybe). The other Digimon had months to get to know their kids; Gatomon only had a few days, most of which was spent trying to survive. On the bright side, she did complete her life’s purpose - protecting Kari.
  • Blade on a Stick: Ophanimon's Javelin.
  • Broken Bird: The heaps of abuse dealt to her by Myotismon just because she had gentle eyes made her cynical and bitter, with Wizardmon as the only one whom she showed a bit of kindness to. Until she met Kari and became her partner, that is.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Twice does Angewomon interrupt her opponent calling their attack, in order to call hers first, and defeat them.
  • Cats Are Magic: 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.
  • Cats Are Mean: Subverted upon her Heel–Face Turn, but played straight prior.
  • Character Select Forcing: In the PSP game, due to her access to a healing move without using up equipment space, high SP and high speed allowing her to act again quicker than most other party members, she's pretty much required to be always in your party if you want to stand a chance against the Dark Masters.
  • Co-Dragons: 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.
  • Colony Drop: Magnadramon's Apocalypse would have involved dropping a holy meteor on opponents.
  • Combat Medic: Angewomon and Ophanimon in the PSP game.
  • Combined Energy Attack: Angewomon collected the power of the attacks of the other Digimon in order to power up her first Celestial Arrow.
  • The Dragon: Was one of Myotismon's top lieutenants, capable of giving the heroes a good fight.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was separated from the other Digimon partners while still a Digi-egg, so she hatched alone, and walked around the Digital World in search for her partner, despite having no idea who they were or what they looked like. But instead she was found by Myotismon, who subjected her to constant beating and torture, mostly because he didn't like her eyes. Add the fact that time passes much faster in the Digital World than on Earth, factor in that four years of real world time passed in that period, and Fridge Horror sinks in as the mind struggles to imagine just how much and for how long Gatomon endured serving Myotismon.
  • Deflector Shields: Angewomon has created these on two occasions.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Perhaps if Myotismon hadn't made a habit of abusing her terribly, she wouldn't have shot an arrow through his heart.
  • Dummied Out: Data for Magnadramon's attacks exist within the PSP game, meaning that Ophanimon was not the first choice for Gatomon's Mega level.
  • Every Scar Has a Story: Gatomon got her scar by being whipped repeatedly by Myotismon, and those beatings are why she forgot her life's purpose.
  • Eye Beams: Cat's Eye Hypnotism in the PSP game.
  • Glass Cannon: In the PSP game. She's got the second highest ATK and SPD stats, but an atrocious HP stat.
  • Heavenly Blue: Ophanimon's armor.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: Myotismon's only other female minion was a Dokugumon.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Angewomon and Ophanimon's have the same advantage over evil Digimon that Angemon does in the PSP game.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Done in the dub, where she complains about one of her henchmon going on a rampage: "What's that big-eared freak trying to do?" Gatomon, we don't think you're in any position to call anyone a "big-eared freak".
  • Kick the Dog: Or smack him with your tail...
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: And how! Before she met Kari, Gatomon only could remember her hatred against everyone and the brutal punishments she used to get on a daily basis. She even forgot about the day when she met Wizardmon! Of course, she got better.
  • Light Is Not Good: Pre-Heel–Face Turn.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Ophanimon carries a shield in one hand.
  • Made a Slave: As Salamon, was made to be a slave to Myotismon.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Angewomon and Ophanimon have the same advantage over evil Digimon as Angemon does, with their attacks being extremely effective on them. This is best shown in her debut where she instantly paralyzes Myotismon with one attack. She's especially this trope as, by her canonical attacks, she has a counter for more or less anything he can do (including his Nightmare Claw/Dead Scream). It's little wonder he spent the entire arc trying to prevent her from being possible.
  • Magic Knight: As Ophanimon.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Cute little kitty defeated the group all by herself. Though she is a Champion level Digimon while they're all Rookie level.
  • The Power of Hate: What kept her going for most of her life.
  • Pungeon Master: Downplayed, but being a cat Digimon, the dub writers could not resist having Gatomon use a lot of cat-related puns.
  • Redemption Promotion: After joining the team, Gatomon gains the ability to Digivolve into her Ultimate level, greatly increasing her power and giving her the ability to attack at range.
  • The Red Mage: Angewomon and Ophanimon can both attack and heal with their holy powers.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to DemiDevimon's red, though she could also be seen as the red to Wizardmon's blue.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Literally for Myotismon.
  • Scars Are Forever: 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.
  • Standard Status Effects: Cat's Eye Hypnotism can inflict 'Sticky' in the PSP game.
  • Sword Beam: Ophanimon's Eden's Javelin.
  • Tail Slap: Gatomon uses one on a dog while searching for the eighth child.
  • Thinking Out Loud: 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.
  • Zen Survivor: After taking years (if not decades) of brutal servitude, Gatomon ends up being wiser and tougher than the other Digimon, as she becomes The Smart Guy in the group.

Gatomon without her Holy Ring
Click here  to see Nefertimon
Click here  to see Silphymon

  • Ambiguous Gender: As Silphymon. The issue becomes muddled due to the female Gatomon doing a Fusion Dance with the male Aquilamon. That, and the fact that Silphymon is named after female mythical creatures. In instances of Hawkmon Digivolving to Silphymon on his own, the ambiguity dries up.
  • Ancient Egypt: Nefertimon's motif. Her armor invokes this period, and her form based on The Sphinx.
  • Bag of Spilling: Loses her Holy Ring in the first episode, which leads to her being a Champion level Digimon with the power of a Rookie level.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: As Butterflamon.
  • Book-Ends: Loses her Holy Ring in the first minutes of the first episode, and gets it back in the last minutes of the last episode.
  • Bridal Carry: Angewomon's way of carrying Kari while flying.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: She's a cat-based Digimon with a dry sense of humor.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In one dub episode, Gatomon goes into a random tirade about TV antennas, asking why they're called rabbit ears and not cat ears. Kari looks at her incredulously, asking "This is what you think of?!"
  • Combination Attack: As Nefertimon, she has one with Pegasusmon, Golden Noose, which creates a thread of golden light to tie things up with. She also has one with herself. Angewomon used Celestial Arrow to shatter Nefertimon's Rosetta Stone in order to shower MaloMyotismon with shards of stone.
  • Cool Mask: Wears one as Nefertimon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Indulges in this at times.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Tylomon is based on a Tylosaurus, a type of Mosasaur (which aren't really dinosaurs, but giant aquatic lizards).
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Nefertimon's Rosetta Stone.
  • Energy Weapon: Nefertimon's Cat's Eye Beam attack, which fires two pink beams from her headdress.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: or at least Mosasaurs as Tylomon.
  • Finger Firearms: Angewomon shoots a blast of pink energy from her fingertips to dissuade the Deep Ones from taking Kari.
  • Giant Flyer: Angewomon in Diablomon’s Counterattack.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Cat's Eye Hypnotism, which was only used once.
  • An Ice Person: YukimiBotamon.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Silphymon's Static Force.
  • Light 'em Up: Nefertimon and Pegasusmon's Golden Noose traps whatever they want in ropes of light.
  • Making a Splash: Tylomon, specifically her Hydro Wave attack.
  • Mama Bear: for Kari, especially as Angewomon in the Dark Ocean episode.
  • Nerf: Losing her Holy Ring reduced Gatomon to the power of a Rookie. Notably, since Armor Digimon are weaker than Champion Digimon, Nefertimon is still weaker than Gatomon at full power.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: It's not difficult to notice Nefertimon has (covered) breasts.
  • No-Sell: Her Holy Ring manages to deactivate a Dark Ring when it gets too near Gatomon.
  • One-Way Visor: Wears one as Silphymon.
  • Only Sane Man: When the Digimon are introduced to human food, Gatomon is the only one to avoid going hog-wild on it, instead staring on with disgust.
  • Palette Swap: YukimiBotamon, of Botamon, Agumon's Baby form.
  • Panthera Awesome: Nefertimon is a sphinx, and doubles as an angel.
  • Power Source: Her Holy Ring. Without, her strength is reduced to that of a Rookie.
  • Pretty Butterflies: As Butterflamon.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Of the Digimon half of the team.
  • Superhero Sobriquets: As Nefertimon, Hohoemi no Hikari (Light of Smiles) in the original. The Angel of Light in the English dub, and la Luce che Risplende (The Light that Shines) in the Italian dub. Miwaku no Chishiki (Mesmerizing Knowledge) as Butterflamon. Silphymon has one in its debut episode title: Love Storm.
  • Threatening Shark: As Tylomon.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Most of the time, Angewomon adheres to Stationary Wings, where she will raise her wings in order to fly, but doesn't flap them... except for when she flies out to fight LadyDevimon, where Angewomon has her wings in their non-flight position.
  • The Worf Effect: In Hurricane Touchdown. Magnadramon goes down in a single hit, despite Angewomon putting up a much better fight against Cherubimon. Her thunder is stolen by Magnamon.

Ophanimon: Falldown Mode

  • Affectionate Nickname: Called Tail-chan by Yuuko Yagami.
  • Amnesia Missed a Spot: Despite ostensibly having lost all her memories, she still recognises the whistle Kari gave her at the end of Adventure as hers.
  • Clip Its Wings: After Gatomon punches a Kuwagamon, its wings fall off.
  • Diving Kick: How Neko Kick is used.
  • Effortless Amazonian Lift: Angewomon prevents Garurumon, Birdramon, Togemon and Angemon from entering the backup data cube by catching all of them at the same time, and effortlessly carrying them away.

  • Goggles Do Nothing: Wears a pair on her forehead when disguised to go out to eat with the other girls.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Her and Raguelmon's merged form Ordinemon is a vaguely angelic-looking horror of gigantic, yet still humanoid proportions.
  • Not So Above It All: Sighs at the antics of the other Digimon when at the Hot-Springs, but joins in with begging Leomon to take the Digimon to the school festival.

Omnimon

Debuting in Our War Game (included as the second episode of Digimon: The Movie), this Holy Knight Digimon is the result of a Fusion of the Mega levels WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon to defeat Diablomon and his clones.

He returned in Diablomon’s Counterattack, where he re-entered the internet to successfully defeat a returning Diablomon, and later fought Armagemon. Though he was unsuccessful in defeating it, his data was used to form the Omega Sword, and create Imperialdramon: Paladin Mode.

He reappeared in Reunion, where he was the only Digimon able to match Alphamon, and forced him to retreat. Our Future introduces the new Merciful Mode, a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

His Digivolutions are as follows:

  • Mega (Fusion): Omnimon (Omegamon), the result of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon performing a Fusion together.
    • Mega (Mode Changes): Omnimon: Merciful Mode (Omegamon: Merciful Mode), a fusion of all eight partner Digimon.

Attacks: Transcendant Sword Sword (JP: Grey Sword, IT: Spada Trascendente), Supreme Cannon (JP: Garuru Cannon, IT: Cannone Supremo), Omega Blast

General Tropes

  • Ambiguous Robot: Despite his robotic appearance, Omnimon is officially classified as a Holy Knight Digimon.
  • Arm Cannon: His left arm is the Supreme Cannon.
  • Badass Armfold: A favored pose of his
  • Badass Cape: As befitting of a Holy Knight Digimon.
  • BFG: The Supreme Canon.
  • BFS: The Transcendant Sword. While it is in proportion with him (although still fairly large compared to his size), that makes it at least thirty feet long.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Grey Sword.
  • Flying Brick: Like WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon before him.
  • Fusion Dance: Of WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon. In Japanese, the term Izzy uses to describe their fusion is "Gattai" ("combining"). This term is also used in Digimon Xros Wars and some other media, making it different from DNA/Natural Digivolution.
  • An Ice Person: His Supreme Cannon carried over MetalGarurumon's ice abilities, although this is mostly seen in games and hasn't been made explicit in the anime.
  • Light Is Good: He's a Holy / Exalted knight and is mostly white, and is very heroic.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's super powerful and very fast.
  • The Paladin: A Holy Knight Digimon.
  • Playing with Fire: The Grey Sword carried over WarGreymon's fire abilities, although this is mostly seen in games and hasn't been made explicit in the anime.
  • The Quiet One: In the Japanese version, Omnimon is The Voiceless, and in the English dub, Omnimon never says more than his name or attack names.Averted in Last Evolution were he has several lines.
  • Story-Breaker Power: One of the most powerful protagonist Digimon in the anime franchise, and arguably the strongest version of normal Omnimon. He's strong enough to take out thousands of cloned Mega level Digimon (any of which is stronger than his individual components) with a single blow, clash with Alphamon Oryuken Mode (base Alphamon was unaffected by Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon, and later Oryuken Mode took out the other partner digimon in their Mega forms with just the shockwaves of his clashing with Jesmon) and is able to hold his own against Ordinemon, a digimon that destroys reality simply by existing, even while he's trying NOT to kill her.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: The Garuru Cannon.
  • Wrong Context Magic: While in some form of media, Omnimon can be created through DNA/Natural Digivolution, this Omnimon is not described to be a DNA/Natural Digivolved Digimon. In Our War Game and in 02, Izzy uses the term "Gattai" ("Combining") to describe their fusion and he doesn't view it as the same as DNA/Natural Digivolution. He describes that the fusion between WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon allows them to become a Digimon that is ten times stronger than each of them individually, while DNA/Natural Digivolution allows two Digimon to Digivolve together to the next level. In Xros Wars, Tentomon also differentiates the Omnimon fusion from DNA/Natural Digivolution and DigiXros and uses the term "Gattai" as well. Some other media, especially the earlier ones, also uses the term "Gattai". But even in recent years, it's still used for this Omnimon or for other Omnimon who are clearly based on him.note 

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure

  • Attack Reflector: Can use his sword in this fashion, as the army of Diablomon found out.
  • 11th-Hour Superpower: His Digivolution really came out of nowhere and when the Chosen Children needed him most.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Omega Blast is described as a holy shot.
  • Sword Beam: In the PSP game, he unleashes the Omega Blast from his sword.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure 02

  • The Worf Effect: Only in the last 02 movie, where he was used to hype up Armagemon.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure tri.

Omnimon in tri.

.
  • Crucified Hero Shot: His new pose for popping out of digivolution.
  • Fusion Dance: A fusion on top of a fusion, Merciful Mode is a fusion between Omnimon, Phoenixmon, HerculesKabuterimon, Vikemon, Rosemon, Seraphymon and Magnadramon, a mass fusion between all eight of the original Digidestined's Mega level partners.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Merciful Mode changes the Grey Sword into a katana.
  • Large and in Charge: While his size is pretty hard to gauge in the first two movies, its made clear in tri. that he's the largest partner Digimon the original 8 have, rivaling Alphamon (and perhaps Imperialdramon) in size.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Merciful Mode has two angel wings instead of a cape.
  • Super Mode: Merciful Mode is a white Palette Swap of Omnimon with green eyes, blue Tron Lines, a pair of angelic wings, and the blade of the Grey Sword being shaped like a katana.
  • Tron Lines: Merciful Mode has glimmering blue ones all over its body.
  • Winged Humanoid: Merciful Mode gains two angel wings, making it this.
  • Your Size May Vary: While he seemed large in the original two movies, he wasn't more than 30 or so feet tall, and not too much taller than Diablomon. In tri., he's at least 100 feet tall, and absolutely towers over the Champion Digimon.

Tropes related to Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna

  • An Arm and a Leg: Eosmon uses her mirrors to slice him apart, first cutting off part of his cannon before taking his entire right arm and left leg.
  • The Determinator: Floating in a void, missing two limbs and up against an opponent the likes of Armageddamon or Ordinemon, he refuses to back down.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: He no longer has access to all the components necessary to use Merciful mode, forcing him to battle Eosmon in his regular form. Although he puts up a good fight, he in the end still loses.
  • The Worf Effect: As in the 02 movie, although he puts up an impressive fight against Eosmon's final form. Played with as he never uses Merciful Mode and while he loses, his component parts then evolve into forms which may equal or exceed Merciful Mode.
