    Meiko Mochizuki 

Meiko Mochizuki

Voiced by: Miho Arakawa (JP) and Cristina Valenzuela (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mochizuki_meiko.png

Taichi's new neighbour and classmate, a mysterious girl who just moved to Odaiba from the sandy Tottori Prefecture. She's pretty shy and tends to sneeze when she gets nervous. Her digimon partner is the equally mysterious Meicoomon, a cat-like champion level (adult) digimon.


  • Adorkable: She's so shy and introverted she can barely hold a conversation, but somehow comes across as adorable.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Mimi calls her "Mei Mei". Meicoomon calls her "Mei".
  • Alliterative Name: Meiko Mochizuki.
  • Apologizes a Lot: After Meicoomon goes berserk.
  • Break the Cutie: Meiko becomes devastated when she realizes Meicoomon is an infected Digimon.
  • Character Tics: She sneezes when she gets nervous.
  • Color-Coded Characters: She doesn't have a crest, but Meiko is associated with dark red in promotional material. When Meicoomon enters Vicious Mode at the end of Determination, her Digivice turns black and the buttons red.
  • Conveniently Seated: Sits at the end of the row in class, right beside Taichi.
  • Country Mouse: Moved to Odaiba from a rural area called Tottori.
  • Damsel in Distress: In the first movie, she's saved from Alphamon by the Digi-Destined.
  • Girl Next Door: Literally moved into Taichi's apartment complex and a nice friendly girl.
  • Hidden Depths: Loss reveals she's quite skilled as a survivalist. It counts both in and out of universe, as just a few minutes prior the other kids mention she'd probably be helpless trying to survive out in the Digital World.
  • Image Song: Her image song is "Mebaeta Tsuyosa" note .
  • It's All My Fault: As the situation continually gets worse, she keeps insisting it's her fault. Mimi and Tai get exasperated, with the later briefly snapping at her to shut up.
  • Keigo: Always speaks very formally, even when talking with friends.
  • The Kid with the Leash: When Meicoomon is separated from Meiko for long periods, she becomes extremely panicky, followed by going completely berserk, something the Mysterious Man capitalizes on to drive Meicoomon completely over the edge.
  • Last-Name Basis: In the Japanese version. The boys call her "Mochizuki". Similarly, she calls some of the others by their last name and Mimi and Takeru offer her to call them by their first names instead.
  • Meganekko: She's a cute girl that wears glasses, but they get cracked when Alphamon shows up. She has to replace them with red frames from Determination onwards.
  • New Transfer Student: She transfers into the same school as the rest of the older Digi-Destined.
  • The Nicknamer: She's one of the few characters to nickname her Digimon. In this case, she calls her partner "Mei-chan".
  • Non-Action Girl: Due to Meicoomon serving as The Heavy of the series, Meiko is less involved in the fighting than the other chosen and their partners.
  • Off-Model: She changes her black frames with red frames between the first two movies, yet some recent promotional media give her black frames back.
  • One Steve Limit: Meiko and Meicoomon have very similar names. They call each other "Mei-chan" and "Mei", respectively.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Meiko occassionally slips into her Yonago dialect or use vocabulary specifically from the Umpaku dialect, such as "dandan". The English dub has her accent turn into a Southern American one to represent it.
  • Paint It Black: Just before Meicoomon kills Leomon, Meiko's digivice is shown to turn black inside her bag.
  • Put on a Bus: After Meicoomon's death, her family moves back to the Tottori Prefecture, though she still keeps in contact with the Odaiba destined.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Although she did agree to wear the skimpy waitress outfit Mimi designed, she is mortified to actually be seen in it. The bashful style earns her fans.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: She was first presented as a girl in the shadows holding her Meicoomon, with her glasses shining. She's actually a very shy girl. They start going back to this during Coexistence when she starts advocating killing Meicoomon.
  • Ship Tease: She gets a fair bit of it with Taichi during the latter half of the series, Meiko confiding in Taichi specifically during Coexistance, and Taichi being egged on by the others into calling Meiko during the epilogue. While Taichi is more tense during the call, Meiko is shown more at ease, even addressing him less formally.
  • Shrinking Violet: Meiko's introversion reaches the point where she struggles to converse with a lot of people and she can't help but breaking into sneezing fits.
  • Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Blue haired and so shy she becomes a stuttering mess every time she talks to someone.
  • Sixth Ranger: She and Meicoomon are tri.'s Sixth Rangers. By the end of Reunion, the main eight have warmly accepted them as part of their team, and the duo are even featured in the closing credits.
  • Transfer Student Uniforms: Unlike Mimi (who probably didn't wear a school uniform until that point), Meiko doesn't have the Tsukishima uniform yet when she transfers to Tsukishima High School in Reunion and has to wear her old one to signify that she's a new face. She gets her new uniform shortly before the beginning of Determination, symbolizing that she's been integrated into the group.
  • True Companions: Over the course of tri. she bonds with the other eight, graduating from Sixth Ranger into a full fledged member. Even after losing Meicoomon after the Final Battle, the Odaiba chosen still count her as one of their own and keep in touch after she is Put on a Bus.
  • Uncertain Doom: In Loss, she got strangled by the Mysterious Man to provoke Meicoomon, and the last we've seen of her is her body going limp as her glasses fall to the ground. Subverted in Coexistence, in that the Mysterious Man merely knocked her out while Meicoomon assumed she was dead.
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Meiko's father apparently has a lot of meetings, and the one time they meet it's for her to pass him some clothes.

    Daigo Nishijima 

Daigo Nishijima

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (JP) and Doug Erholtz (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nishijima_daigo.png

"We count on you, Digi-Destined."

Tai's surrogate teacher and calligraphy teacher. He is apparently aware of the role of the Chosen Children and seeks them for help to stop violent Digimon. In reality, he's actually an agent for the government trying to track and control the digital disturbances that bring Digimon to Earth and infect them.


  • Childhood Friends: With Maki Himekawa. It's revealed that the two of them were among the original five Chosen Children.
  • Foil: He's one to Maki. Whereas Maki instead is cold and aloof, Daigo is more happy-go-lucky and warming to the kids. Also unlike Maki, his partner survived the final battle against the Dark Masters.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: The flashback in Loss shows that he used to wear goggles like the rest of the series protagonists.
  • Hero of Another Story: Loss shows that he was a member of the original Digi-Destined and based on the fact he wore goggles, he might have been The Hero of the group.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In Our Future, he and Taichi are trapped in the facility where Daisuke's team are being treated — and then the Mysterious Man turns off their life support. Saving the team will cause the facility to detonate, with only one spare escape pod. Already bleeding out from the wounds inflicted by the fall, Daigo tricks Taichi into entering the pod and begins the sequence.
  • Hot Teacher: Daigo looks as young and attractive as the grown up Digi-Destined.
  • Last-Name Basis: Nobody calls him by his first name.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Daigo berates Maki for not informing him of about Meicoomon's connection with the Infected Digimon. He does it again when she fails to inform Yamato about the four missing Digi-Destined.
  • Meaningful Name: "Nishijima" means "west island", which heavily indicates that his partner LoaderLeomon evolved into Baihumon, the White Tiger of the West. His first name "Daigo" rougly means "great power", which not only fits the Theme Naming of the goggle boys (at least it fits with Daisuke's name) and it fits to the partner of Baihumon, the strongest of the Four Holy Beasts. The "go" in his name is possibly a pun to "go" ("five"), which might be a reference to the original five Chosen Children he belonged to.
  • Mentor Archetype: Acts as one to Taichi. Which comes with the Mentor Occupational Hazard.
  • Pals with Jesus: His Digimon partner was LoaderLeomon, who evolved into one of the four Digimon Sovereigns that rule over the Digital World.
  • Precursor Heroes: Loss shows that he was a member of the original Digi-Destined that defeated and sealed away a great evil that came from beyond the Wall of Fire. Additionally, he used to be the resident goggle boy of the group.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Wears pink boxers as well as pink slippers.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Spends the first part of Reunion helping Taichi figure out what career he'd like to have and encourages him to hang onto his dreams.
  • Sweet Tooth: He loves sweet bakery and is often seeing eating them or has them in his room.
  • Try to Fit THAT on a Business Card!: He does, but the full title is "Incorporated Administrative Agency, National Data Processing Bureau, Information Strategy Section, Information Management Section, Grade 2 Management Officer."
  • Undercover Cop Reveal: A variation. Daigo reveals to Taichi and Yamato he is a federal agent assigned to investigate the Infected Digimon.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: While he might not have a romantic rival, Daigo started dating Maki in part to make her feel better about Tapirmon dying. It did not really work out.
  • Working with the Ex: Maki is his ex-girlfriend, though he treats her fairly amicably.

    Maki Himekawa 

Maki Himekawa

Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (JP) and Cherami Leigh (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/himekawa_maki.png

A mysterious woman who suddenly appears to the Digi-Destined. She works for the same agency as Daigo.


  • Affectionate Nickname: Both Meiko and Daigo refer to her as Hime-chan.
  • Childhood Friends: With Daigo Nishijima. It's revealed that the two of them were among the original five Chosen Children.
  • Deal with the Devil: Desperate to resurrect her dead digimon partner, Tapirmon, she allies herself with the Mysterious Man, who is working on behalf of Yggdrasil, to help them rebooting the Digital World in hope that it'll make Tapirmon return Back from the Dead.
  • Despair Event Horizon: She's crossed it as of Coexistence due to not being able to get her former partner to come back to her. Last we see of her, she's been swept away by the Dark Ocean.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Digi-Destined. She was part of a past group of Digi-Destined that battled the Dark Masters, they won at the price of her partner sacrificing itself forever and she's spent every waking moment since to revive them. She may also be this specifically to Hikari, as the flashback shows she was also once possessed by Homeostasis, and Sora, as her partner Digimon's reaction to presumed familiarity was very similar. Himekawa's hair color also happens to be in-between Sora's red and Hikari's brown.
  • Fallen Hero: Loss flashback shows that she was part of the original Digi-Destined but the loss of her partner drove her over the edge eventually culminating with her making a pact with Yggdrasil.
  • Foil: She's one to Daigo. Whereas Daigo is more happy-go-lucky and warming to the kids, Maki instead is cold and aloof.
  • Gone Horribly Right: See Deal with the Devil above, The reboot resurrects Tapirmon. Bad news is the reboot also erases all past events in the digital world and all of the digimon's memories, so Tapirmon looks at her as a complete stranger.
  • Hey, You!: She doesn't call Daigo by any name.
  • Last-Name Basis: Himekawa is never called by her first name. Even her nickname is based on her last name.
  • The Mole: Hinted to be this in the earlier films before Loss outright confirm her to be this for Yggdrasil and its minions.
  • Mysterious Stranger: Maki's character sheet from the official website introduces her as a "mysterious woman" who appears to the Digi-Destined, and the film shows her as such.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite her cold and distant personality she becomes aggravated when Daigo mentions her nickname and their past relationship as former lovers to the Digi-Destined.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Some shots have angles that depict her that way, giving the viewers a sinister hint.
  • Pet the Dog: She is more genial and empathetic to Meiko and Meicoomon during the Onsen trip in "Determination".
  • Precursor Heroes: Loss shows that she was a member of the original Digi-Destined that defeated and sealed away a great evil that came from beyond the Wall of Fire.
  • Red-Headed Heroine: Her hair is reddish brown (which is more noticeable when she stands next to other brown-haired characters like Hikari), which made her stand out from her four black-haired comrades from many years ago.
  • Sanity Slippage: The look on her face when her partner does not remember her despite her working for years to revive them just screams this. By Coexistence, she's slipped even further, screaming to a not-present Tapirmon about how they'll be heroes.
  • Talkative Loon: In Coexistence, she spends all her scenes rambling to herself.
  • Uncertain Doom: Daigo isn't sure what happened to Maki and isn't entirely certain if she is still alive after the reboot. While she did survive the Reboot, she was last seen entering the Dark Ocean and getting submerged under the waves, and hasn't been seen since. Daigo senses this happen, however, and assumes that she didn't survive it.
  • The Un Chosen One: Her opinion of herself and Tapirmon, that they weren't meant to be heroes, but she's determined to try and be one. Admittedly, by the time she expresses these opinions, it's when she's gone completely nuts.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We see her last in the Dark Ocean in Coexistence, where she seemingly drowns, but her fate isn't confirmed. Daigo assumes that she is dead, and, outside of namedropping her in Our Future, she's not brought up again.
  • Working with the Ex: Daigo is her ex-boyfriend, though she tries to keep things between them strictly professional.

Digimon

    Alphamon 

Alphamon

Voiced by: Paul St. Peter (EN, grunts only)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alphamon_tri.png
Click here  to see Alphamon: Ouryuken

Nicknamed "The Aloof Hermit". He's a Ultimate-Level Holy Knight Digimon designated to fight his Omega counterpart, Omegamon.

For his evolutions/forms, see here:

  • Ultimate: His default form.
    • Mode Change: Alphamon: Ouryuken. By summoning the sword Ouryuken, he becomes more powerful and his wings are activated for combat.

  • Adaptation Induced Plothole: Just like in X-Evolution, Alphamon just pulls the Ouryuken and Ouryumon is nowhere to be seen.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Unlike in X-Evolution, the Alphamon is depicted as a servant of Yggdrasill, aiding in it's plan to destroy the Digital World
  • Badass Cape: His long blue and white cape that comes from his armor. He covers his body with it when Birdramon and Kabuterimon attack him and uses it to blow away the flames surrounding him.
  • BFS: The Ouryuken has large blades on two sides and a very long hilt, making it appear like an axe.
  • Black Knight: He's clad head to toe in black armor, is seemingly The Dragon for the Big Bad and is a match for the most powerful Digimon on the Chosen have.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Dishes one out against the 02 cast at the start of Reunion and later definitively does to the '99 Chosen Children without even trying. Alphamon only starts taking the fight seriously when Omegamon is formed, and eventually escapes while Omegamon prepares the Garuru Cannon. And again in Coexistence, when he takes out seven Partner Digimon, six of whom are at Ultimate-level like Alphamon itself, with one swing of Ouryuken.
  • The Dragon: One of Yggdrasil's, acting as his proxy in the four way battle at the end of Coexistence and is positioned as one of Yggdrasil's servants on tri's website character status chart.
  • Dub Induced Plothole: A minor one, but as a result of Omegamon's name being changed to "Omnimon", the significance of him fighting Alphamon is lost in the dub.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: As Alphamon: Ouryuken, his eyes glow occasionally in red light without actually changing his eye color.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Alphamon visibly held back against the Partner Digimon during Reunion. When Omegamon shows up, Alphamon summons the Ouryuken to fight more seriously, but even there he still shows shades of this trope.
  • The Juggernaut: In Reunion, until the appearance of Omegamon, none of the Partner Digimon can stop him. Subverted, as they do manage to slow him down a little bit before he can do more damage on the district.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: Alphamon wisely retreats before Omegamon can fire his Garuru Cannon.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: The moment Omegamon comes forth, it immediately summons the Ouryuken.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is a Vaccine-type with explicitly light-related attacks and a Holy Knight description. Doesn't make him any less willing to murder children, if for admittedly unknown reasons.
  • Magic Missile Storm: Digitalize of Soul; he can unleash an enormous amount of green blasts at once, not just single blasts. When fighting Omegamon in Reunion, he fires enough to destroy the nearby ferris wheel.
  • No-Sell: Being on the highest level, none of the attacks performed by the Partner Digimon below his level can harm him. Even the attacks of MetalGarurumon and WarGreymon don't damage him, although those have a slightly greater effect on him than the previous attacks did.
  • The Paladin: Like Omegamon, he is also an armored Digimon of the Holy Knight type.
  • Power Gives You Wings: As Alphamon: Ouryuken, he projects angelic-looking wings from the structures on the shoulders during the fight with Omnimon.
  • Power Palms: He can unleash green energy from his palms, Digitalize of Soul.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes glow occasionally red when he's Alphamon: Ouryuken. It should be noted that his eyes don't actually turn red, but they just glow in that color.
  • Summon to Hand: Alphamon summons the Ouryuken by seemingly pulling it out of a green portal.
  • Super Mode: When Alphamon goes more serious, he summons the Ouryuken to become Alphamon: Ouryuken, making him stronger than before. When he clashes with Jesmon in this form, the resulting energy wave is strong enough to take six Ultimate-level (and a Perfect-level) Digimon out of the fight.
  • The Voiceless: Doesn't speak one line of dialogue during any of his appearances. The only sounds he makes in Confession are grunts when he is fighting Jesmon.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Disappears after the evolution of Ordinemon.
  • Worthy Opponent: Seems to regard Omegamon as one, as he summons the Ouryuken and projects his wings to fight him in, but fights Jesmon, another Holy Knight Digimon, without them during their first bout.

    Meicoomon 

Meicoomon (Meikuumon)

Voiced by: Yukiko Morishita (JP) and Kate Higgins (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/meikuumon.jpg
Click here  to see Meicoomon (Mutated)
Click here  to see Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode
Click here  to see Raguelmon

Meiko's Digimon partner, who is being targeted by Alphamon for an unknown reason. It's an odd, feline Adult Digimon with a color scheme resembling a tiger's coat and scarve-like tails it sometimes wraps around its head.

Its mutations are as follows:

  • Adult:
    • Meicoomon, her default form.
    • Meicoomon (Mutated), a feral and slightly bigger version of Meicoomon with longer claw and thicker fur as a result of its infection mutated.
  • Perfect: Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode, a humanoid cat that is about the size of human-like Digimon. It becomes much more aggressive in this form and it apparently accelerates the infection progress of other Digimon.
  • Ultimate: Raguelmon, a Fallen Angel Digimon who still keeps most of its animalistic characteristics of its pre-evolved forms.
    • Ultimate (Fusion): Ordinemon, the result of a fusion between Raguelmon and Ofanimon: Falldown Mode.note 

  • Affectionate Nickname: Meiko calls her "Mei-chan".
  • Apocalypse Maiden: She has the ability to create distortion portals and can infect other Digimon, which gives her the power to bring an invasion of Infected Digimon to the real world.
  • Barrier Warrior: Meicoomon is capable of producing levitating force fields, first shown when she rushes to get Meiko out of harm's way when Alphamon attacks.
  • Beast Man: Her Ultimate/Perfect form Meicrackmon assumes an anthropomorphic appearance and features visible breasts. Her Mega/Ultimate form Raguelmon is as straight-up Cat Folk.
  • The Berserker: Its Vicious Mode makes it an uncontrollable, rampaging lunatic, which becomes more aggressive as Meicrackmon.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: While being obviously used as a tool by Yggdrasil, it still isn't following their orders and it's more in direct conflict with the Chosen Children than anyone else. From Confession onwards, Meicoomon serves as one of tri.'s main antagonists alongside Yggdrasil and Homeostasis until Ordinemon takes its role.
  • Big Bad Friend: It's Meiko's partner, thus it's definitively emotionally mostly connected to her. The Chosen Children and their partners also view Meicoomon as their friend and try to stop and save it.
  • Bling of War: Raguelmon wears golden armor.
  • CloudCuckoolander: Meicoomon is childish and something of a ditz, especially as Champion-level Digimon go.
  • Dub Name Change: Certain dubs romanize its name as "Meikuumon".
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Has a pair of crosses in her eyes.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Following its abduction by Ken, it loses its trust in everybody, even Meiko. When it feels that Leomon might still be infected, it kills Leomon and escapes through another distortion, when Himekawa reveals that it's also responsible for the distortions and infections.
  • Fallen Angel: Raguelmon is said to be a fallen angel Digimon who oversees other angels.
  • Fusion Dance: At the end of Coexistence, she is forcibly merged with Ofanimon: Falldown Mode, creating a gigantic angelic-looking Humanoid Abomination: Ordinemon.
  • Go Out with a Smile: When Ordinemon is slain, Meiko has a vision in which Meicoomon thanks her before fading away, waving cheerfully.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: In Loss, it looks like Meicoomon is finally able to control itself and reconcile with Meiko. But at the end of the movie, when the Mysterious Man hurts Meiko and seemingly kills her, Meicoomon loses control and mutates into Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode once more, becoming an antagonist again.
  • Hellish Pupils: The crosses in her eyes can rotate into X's and give off a more serious appearance.
  • Mental Handicap, Moral Deficiency: Demonstrates less-than-normal functionality for a champion Digimon when good; batshit crazy when evil; infects the other partner Digimon along the way and either doesn't notice this or knows and doesn't care.
  • One Steve Limit: Meicoomon and Meiko have very similar names. Their nicknames don't help at all, as they call each other "Mei" and "Mei-chan", respectively.

  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Akin to Tailmon/Gatomon, it's a feline Champion/Adult Digimon the size of a Rookie/Child. Her Ultimate/Perfect form Meicrackmon, at least the mode one achieved through Mutation, isn't much bigger. Played with as Raguelmon, where it's larger than the partner Perfect/Ultimates but only about about half the size of Omegamon, Jesmon and Alphamon, while still being their equal in power.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Uses this on Leomon to convince him to take her and the rest of the Digimon to the school festival. It works.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode has purple Tron Lines in places and she is later surrounded with a purple, foggish aura.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Meiko's Digivice turns into her associated colours when Meicoomon goes Vicious Mode and eventually dark digivolves into Meicrackmon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Meicoomon's eyes glow red whenever she's about to perform an attack.
  • Screaming Warrior: After going over the deep end in Coexistence, Meicrackmon and Raguelmon's only dialogue is screaming.
  • Secret Identity: "Coexistence" reveals that she's Apocalymon reborn.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Meiko begs for her to be put down in Coexistence, and in Our Future, Tailmon/Gatomon outright states Meicoomon is suffering and just wants to end it all. Omegamon: Merciful Mode then cuts Ordinemon in half, killed it.
  • Sixth Ranger: As mentioned above in Meiko's entry, both girls have been welcomed into the main eight's group with open arms by the end of Reunion and they even get a spot in the end credits.
    • Sixth Ranger Traitor: By the end of the second movie, she straight up murders Leomon and changes to her Vicious Mode.
  • Split Personality: The normal Meicoomon is kind, shy and apologetic. The vicious one is aggressive and ruthless. Given these opposites, she might have a serious case of double personality.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: It suddenly mutates into a more vicious looking form at the end of Determination and kills Leomon, Meiko's Digivice going black and red to reflect this. It later mutates into Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode in Confession.
  • Tyke Bomb: It's eventually revealed that she's this for Yggdrasil, as a means to pretty much end humanity.
  • Typhoid Mary: Obliviously infects the other Digimon just by being around them. Subverted, as it eventually goes mad from its own infection.
  • Terse Talker: Meicoomon speaks very rarely, and when it does its sentences are only a couple of words long. It does get longer speaking scenes in Loss, though.
  • Verbal Tic: Similar to Armadimon's "dagya", Meicoomon and its evolved forms say "dagan".
    • The German dub removed her Verbal Tic, but since there are many moments where she only says her Verbal Tic, it's replaced with "dandan", a synonym for "arigatou" ("thank you") which she and Meiko use in the Japanese and German dub.
  • Walking Spoiler: Since this site's policies don't allow spoiler tags above the description lines and she half of the time is being an antagonist, it's unavoidable to be spoiled.
  • Walking Wasteland: Once it gets to Raguelmon, it starts making everything it touches dissolve.
  • Winged Humanoid: As Raguelmon, she gains a pair of wings.
  • Wolverine Claws: Meicrackmon: Vicious Mode is equipped with these.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Meicoomon does not evolve throughout the series. It's explicitly stated by Hackmon that she mutates into stronger forms.

    Hackmon 

Hackmon

Voiced by: Shunsuke Takeuchi (JP) and Aaron LaPlante (EN)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hackmon2_2.png
Click here  to see Jesmon

A mysterious Digimon that appears observing the Digi-Destined. It works for Homeostasis.

Its evolutions are as follows:

  • Child: Hackmon, its default form.
  • Ultimate: Jesmon, a gigantic Holy Knight Digimon who has the appearance of a humanoid, skeletal dragon with three swords, two attached to its claws and one being the tip of its tail. It is accompanied by three spirits named Athor, René and Por who aid it in battle.

  • Badass Baritone: For a Child-level Digimon, Hackmon's voice is very deep. As Jesmon its voice is even deeper.
  • The Dragon: To Homeostasis, once the Chosen Children choose to oppose it, which leads Homeostasis to become an antagonist and sends Jesmon after Meicoomon to kill it. The Chosen Children have to fight Jesmon while protecting (and fighting) Meicoomon's mutated forms.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: It wears goggles on its mantle.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: Its true allegiance is to Homeostasis, and as such was only the Chosen Children's enemy while they were trying to stop it from deleting Meicoomon. Once that was no longer an option for them, it went back to being an ally, even separating Tailmon from Ordinemon for them.
  • Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: Despite looking like a dog, it's actually a dragon type Digimon.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: After the Digital World is rebooted, it's seen fighting Alphamon, but has evolved straight to Jesmon.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Jesmon is fast enough to match pace with Raguelmon and strong enough to cross swords with the likes of Alphamon or Omegamon.
  • Mr. Exposition: Once it starts speaking, it fills Nishijima (and the audience) in on a few details of just what the hell is going on.
  • Mysterious Watcher: It's mostly shown sneaking about and presumably observing the Chosen Children.
  • Teleportation: Hackmon can freely teleport by breaking down its data, separately from the distortions.
  • Unknown Character: Aside from Meicoomon & Alphamon, none of the characters even know it exists. Until it appears to Nishijima.
  • The Voiceless: It doesn't talk until in Confession and it gets more to talk in Loss.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After seperating Tailmon from Ordinemon, it heads back into the Digital Gate and doesn't return.

    Bakumon 

Bakumon (Tapirmon)

Voiced by: Kaori Ishihara
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bakumon_tri.jpg
Click here  to see Megadramon

Himekawa's former partner during her time as a Chosen Child/Digi-Destined.

His evolutions are as follows:

  • Child: Bakumon (Tapirmon), its default form.
  • Perfect: Megadramon, a giant cyborg Demon Dragon-type Digimon with purple wings, a metal skull and metal arms that fire missiles.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Like three of its former comrades, Megadramon's species is mostly known as antagonistic. This time around, it's not the case at all.
  • Back from the Dead: In a very unconventional way for the franchise's standard. The Digital World had to be rebooted to revive it.
  • Cool Helmet: Apparently the theme of his evolutions, as both Bakumon and Megadramon have helmets that cover the upper half of their heads.
  • Death Is Cheap: Averted. After its sacrifice, it couldn't be reborn as an Digi-Egg anymore, thus a Reboot was required to revive it, but with a very high price.
  • Death by Origin Story: Its death motivated Himekawa to reboot the Digital World.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Megadramon sacrificed its life during the battle against the Dark Masters and helped the Four Holy Beasts to defeat them and seal the darkness away.
  • Kill the Cutie: Bakumon looks cute and appears to be sweet. Its permanent death is very unnerving.
  • The Unchosen One: It's the only one of the five Digimon not to evolve to its Ultimate level, and instead it was sacrificed to defeat the Dark Masters. It's also implied that its sacrifice was needed to evolve its four comrades in the first place. Hence why Himekawa was wondering why only four of them were chosen.

    Ordinemon 

Ordinemon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ordinemon_63.png

A gigantic Ultimate/Mega-level Digimon which is born from the fusion between Raguelmon and Ofanimon: Falldown Mode. It causes chaos in the real world and brings the darkness over there to destroy it.


  • Alien Hair: Its hair look like tentacles. They may be tentacles.
  • Apocalypse Maiden: Being the fusion of two evil-turned Partner Digimon, it also happens to have the power to bring destruction upon the world.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: It strongly looks like a gigantic naked woman, but she has no genitalia or nipples.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: It takes Meicoomon's roles as one of tri.'s central antagonists, alongside Yggdrasil and Homeostasis.
  • Blinding Bangs: If it has eyes, no less (although the transformation sequence that spawned it implies it does). If it does, its Alien Hair hide them.
  • Casting a Shadow: It can bring the darkness to the real world.
  • Combat Tentacles: It can turn the end of its wings into shadowy tentacles.
  • Creepily Long Arms: Which for extra creepiness look like DNA strands.
  • Enemy Summoner: Can turn the feathers it sheds into Devidramon and other Always Chaotic Evil Digimon it controls.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Omegamon. Both are fusions of two Partner Digimon, but not due to the result of Jogress Evolution. Omegamon was created by the power of hope and wishes from countless people and serves as The Paladin, while Ordinemon is mainly created through Hikari's corruption and she's an Apocalypse Maiden.
  • Expy: It strongly resembles Lilith from Neon Genesis Evangelion, an angel who can cause The End of the World as We Know It.
  • Fallen Angel: It's the fusion of two of them and it has dark wings to match.
  • Fan Disservice: Barbie Doll Anatomy aside, it's a gigantic, angelic, naked woman, but also has the look of an Eldritch Abomination and is not as nearly as good-looking as Tailmon/Gatomon's humanoid evolutions.
  • Fusion Dance: It's the fusion of Ofanimon: Falldown Mode and Raguelmon. Like Omegamon, it's not a Jogress Evolution but rather a Fusion.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: It has dark wings, which fit its Fallen Angel appearance.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Done in by Omegamon: Merciful Mode slicing it in half.
  • Impossibly Graceful Giant: Averted, unlike most Digimon of its size. It's utterly enormous and after arriving in the real world, essentially falls flat on its face, moving very awkwardly and clumsily until it's able to right herself.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Most of its attacks involve unleashing destructive waves of energy whenever it screams.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: It has very sharp teeth, which makes its face even more evil-looking.
  • Morphic Resonance: Its wings are the same as those Raguelmon had, just bigger. Much, much bigger. Meanwhile, the tips of its arms look a little like Meicoomon's tail.
  • Order Is Not Good: Ordine means Order.
  • Our Angels Are Different: It falls more in line of the angels from Neon Genesis Evangelion. Although, it does have angelic wings.
  • Powerful and Helpless: At first, it's one of the most ludicrously powerful Digimon seen, able to tank attacks from multiple Ultimate levels... but it comes at the cost of being completely mindless and having no real idea what it's doing. Once Tailmon's starts trying to free herself, this goes out the window, and the more things go on, the more Ordinemon is starting to learn, until it comes up with its own idea.]]
  • Walking Wasteland: Like Raguelmon, its mere presence causes everything it touches to start dissolving.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Like Omegamon, Ordinemon wasn't created through Jogress Evolution, but through Fusion. On the other hand, its fusion is very different from the fusion that created Omegamon.
    • Instead of the fusion ending when Tailmon/Gatomon is freed from it, the Mysterious Man replaced it with some of Yggdrasil's power. According to Koushiro/Izzy, Ordinemon was no longer an evolution by that point.

The Other Gennai/Dark Gennai/The Mysterious Man

Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata (JP), Jeff Nimoy (EN, Gennai form)
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7_03_mysterious_man.png

A mysterious man who spent the first few Tri films impersonating Ken Ichijoji, intending to reek havoc on the human world. Come the third film, his Shapeshifter Default Form turns out to resemble Gennai.


  • Ax-Crazy: He's clearly having the time of his life trying to murder the ever-lasting crap out of the Chosen Children using Mugendramon.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: By tri.'s end, he got Apocalymon's data from Meicoomon, escaped, and is now planning to go after both Diablomon and Daemon, with the Chosen Children none the wiser.
  • Badass Finger Snap: Controls and commands Mugendramon and MetalSeadramon via these.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: Has these while manipulating Hikari.
  • The Dragon: To Yggdrasil, albeit a Dragon with an Agenda.
  • Evil Is Hammy: In the first three movies, he appears relatively calm. Once he actually starts speaking to the kids, though, all bets are off.
  • Evil Knockoff: He looks like Gennai and sounds like Gennai, but he's not the real Gennai.
  • Evil Laugh: At the end of Loss, he laughs maniacally when he makes Meicoomon go berserk again.
  • Evil Wears Black: He dresses completely in black, while impersonating Ken and in his normal attire.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: He clubs Sora with Meicoomon.
  • Hero Killer: Forces Daigo to perform a Heroic Sacrifice in Our Future.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: While on the surface he seems to serve Yggdrasil, his true allegience is unknown. Once Ordinemon perished he claimed Apocalymon's data from it before heading off to claim Diablomon and Daemon's data. Whatever his end goal is, involves collecting the data of the Big Bad Digimon the Chosen Children had to face.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Oh, yes. He pins Sora down and licks her cheek. He also neck-lifts Meiko.
  • Karma Houdini: Is still loose at the end of Our Future, Apocalymon's data in hand and looking to collect more from the likes of Daemon and Diablomon.
  • Mr. Exposition: On account of no-one explaining anything up until four movies in, he delivers a lot of the gist to the Chosen Children, while attacking them.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Serves as this for Yggdrasil in addition to being The Dragon.
  • Related in the Adaptation: A strange example. In the original Japanese, it's not made clear whether he is Gennai or just looks like him. In the dub, he claims that he is Gennai, corrupted by King Drasil to become 'Dark Gennai'. Our Future confirms that they're not the same person, as Gennai's silhouette can be seen along with those of the 02 Chosen Children in stasis pods.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: He happens to look like Gennai. While he can change into others like Ken's Kaiser persona, he always reverts to looking like Gennai.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Impersonates Ken as the Digimon Kaiser in tri. As Our Future confirms he's not the real Gennai, it's possible that appearance isn't his own either.
  • Walking Spoiler: Just knowing he isn't the real Ken is enough of a spoiler, but his relation to Yggdrasil only further cements how large it is.

    Yggdrasil 

Yggdrasil (King Drasil)

The ruler and god of the Digital World. Much like its previous incarnations, Yggdrasil sees humanity as a threat to Digimon everywhere and wants to destroy them. It was its plan to use the Reboot to bring back previously deceased Digimon so that it could amass an army in order to conquer the human world.


  • Adaptational Villainy: In Savers, Yggdrasil only wanted to kill all humans because he's seen what one human can do and feels that he is justified, and was also placed in an 'us or them' situation due to said human that made the decision rather understandable from his point of view. In here? Yggdrasil decides outright to conquer the human world despite humans saving his world multiple times, not to mention the only humans that were evil were only brainwashed by an evil Digimon.
  • Big Bad: It is the main villain of Digimon tri.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: While Yggdrasil is the primary antagonist, its Tyke Bomb Meicoomon is more of a Wild Card than it should and also opposes the Chosen Children, but in a different way. Homeostasis, which opposes Yggdrasil, also becomes one of the main antagonists once the Chosen Children have decided to not ally with it.
  • The Chessmaster: He was the one who come up with the Reboot, so that he could gather an army to conquer the human world.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Ultimately, he comes off as this as his motives for wanting humanity destroyed are not defined in any way and he never appears at all so no personality at all can be established. All we know about him is he wants to Kill All Humans...because he does.
  • The Ghost: It didn't appear at all in the first three movies, and was only first mentioned towards the end of the fourth. He's evidently shut down off-screen by Homeostasis at the end of the final movie.
  • God Is Evil: It is the god of the Digital World, but it is behind everything bad that has happened. It sees humans as a threat to its world so it decided to destroy them.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: A strange inversion of this trope. Whereas other uses of this trope have an old villain be inserted into newer installments, here we have a newer villain being placed in what is a sequel to the very first series.
  • Knight Templar: As per usual. It's fiercely protective of the Digital World and will do anything to safeguard it from any potential threats. Even if this means wiping out an entire species to do so.
  • Orcus on His Throne: While it is the Big Bad, all the evil that has happened till now has been performed by its minions. He never actually appears in the entire series and is actually defeated offscreen by Homeostasis.
  • Took a Level in Badass: More of a Meta example but to all the Yggdrasils, this one's plan has the least amount of glaring holes in it and doesn't just rely on the Royal Knights to curbstomp everything. Subverted otherwise, as he never actually does any combat himself and is defeated offscreen by Homeostasis without even appearing.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Despite the Chosen Children saving the Digital World multiple times with nearly every single time being from an evil Digimon (even the two villains who were actually human were ultimately being unknowingly manipulated into doing their villainy by an evil Digimon), Yggdrasil still wants to wipe out humanity. The fact that it tries to do so by resurrecting some of those very same evil Digimon as its minions, Digimon like MetalSeadramon, Mugendramon, Apocalymon and Devimon, doesn't help.
