    Main Hunters and their Digimon 

Tagiru Akashi
A member of Taiki and Yuu's Xros Heart basketball team. He followed Ryouma and his partners into DigiQuartz, and there met his partner, Gumdramon. After meeting the Watchman, he gleefully grabbed the opportunity to become a Digimon Hunter.

Voiced by Marina Inoue

  • Big Eater: A staple in the Digimon franchise. He very much likes food.
  • Blush Sticker: Features this in his design. It helps him look excited and childish.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: To Taiki. Taiki is a Guile Hero while Tagiru is fairly straightforward. Taiki is a Child Prodigy while Tagiru is Book Dumb and has to work harder and struggle more. Their largest difference however is the motivation driving their characters. Taiki has a case of Chronic Hero Syndrome while Tagiru's motivations are more selfish. Tagiru wants to surpass Taiki.
  • Determinator: In episode eleven, Tagiru got his passion sucked out of him by FlaWizarmon, rendering him a droopy-eyed, speech-slurring wreck. Despite this, he still insisted on continuing the hunt, and he managed to regain his energy through sheer Heroic Resolve.
  • Expy: To previous Digimon main characters, but in particular, his shirt has a notable resemblance to Tai's. He also pretty much plays the Davis to Taiki's Tai as far as role goes, and is even characterised very similarly.
    • His personality is also reminiscent of Ash Ketchum during the earlier seasons of the anime.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: His have yellow frames. Averted in one episode, as they were used when he and Taiki when diving.
  • Hidden Depths: He actually knows how to cook. He cooks Okonomiyaki for Pagumon, and it was apparently pretty good.
  • Hotblooded: To the point that steam comes out of his nostrils.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Tagiru wants to be in the spotlight and surpass Taiki, to the point he tries to emulate him, while also jumping at every potential competition in order to prove himself. Which leads to...
  • Idiot Hero: Perhaps the best example ever afforded by the franchise, well beyond even Davis.
  • Jumped at the Call: He didn't need any persuasion to become a Hunter.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Shares this role with Gumdramon.
  • Meaningful Name: It's written in katakana, but it's pronounced the same way as (滚), meaning "to boil". Yeah. The name of his insert song plays with this - "Tagiru Chikara" (spelled in katakana only) can accordingly be taken to meaning "boiling/overflowing power".
  • Shipper on Deck: For Taiki and Akari.
  • Shirtless Scene: Averted in his case, which is suprising since every preceding main hero had at least one.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Makes a frequent habit of this. His Establishing Character Moment has him trying to steal the spotlight from Yu and faceplanting into the back of a basketball net.
  • To Be a Master: Tagiru frequently states that his goal is to become a superstar.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Yuu have this dynamic, as well as with Gumdramon.


Tagiru's partner, a blue dragon Digimon with a tail hammer known as the shippotsuchinote . He found himself in DigiQuartz after an accident in the Digital World, and sought out a human partner in order to take part in the Hunter games. He focuses on Tagiru, and the two quickly became partners, unlocking the ability for Gumdramon to super evolve.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Arresterdramon, his digivolved form. A large, purple dragon with red armor, purple wings, and a trident at the end of its tail.
  • Arresterdramon Superior Mode, a more advanced form of Arresterdramon. His purple wings have become larger and golden, his mouth can now be opened, and is significantly larger and stronger.

Voiced by: Kumiko Watanabe

  • Bilingual Bonus: The "gum" in his name refers to the rubber-like nature of his attacks, but can also be pronounced "gamu", as in "gamushara", meaning "reckless."
  • Cute Little Fangs: A variation where they're pointing upward.
  • Drop the Hammer: JACKED HAMMER! - A swing with his shippotsuchi.
  • Expy: In terms of role, if Tagiru is an expy of Davis (which he is), then Gumdramon is an expy of Veemon. Appearance-wise, he has traits of both Veemon and Dorumon
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Before meeting him, Gumdramon was calculating how to use Tagiru for his own gain, but was touched by Tagiru saving his life, and was genuinely concerned about Tagiru putting his own life at risk.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Shares this role with Tagiru.
  • Playing with Fire: FIRE VORTEX! - Spins rapidly and charges at the opponent while wreathed in flames.
  • Power Limiter: The Kinkoji (Tight-bound child) on his tail. He got it from Sanzomon.
  • The Power of Friendship: It turns the Kinkoji into an Amplifier Artifact.
  • Rubber Man : His tail is extendable and prehensile. Fitting, as the "gum" in his name is another name for natural rubber. Although, as seen in his first fight, the hammer end of his tail is at least definitely quite hard.
  • Tsundere: Episode seven has him deliver the inevitable line "It's not like I'm worried!" regarding Tagiru.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Tagiru tend to quarrel a lot.
  • Whip It Good: RAN-GUM BREAK! - Gumdramon's tail can extend like a whip and smack opponents repeatedly.

Tropes associated with Gumdramon's Digivolved or DigiXros forms:

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: With GigaBreakdramon.note 
  • Goggles Do Nothing: In a first for an actual main character's Digimon, Arresterdramon has a pair of them on his head.
  • Shaping Your Attacks: PRISM GARROTE! - Releases dragon-shaped trails of energy from his tail.
    • And its variation when Xrossed with GigaBreakdramon, INFINITY PRISM GARROTE!
    • And its variation when Xrossed with Astamon, PRISM MAVERICK!
  • Whip It Good: SPIN CALIBUR! - Strikes the opponent with the end of his tail.
  • The Worf Effect: After beating MetalTyrannomon, he either loses all his fights (to the point of winning more fights without evolving!), or is about to lose until someone comes to lend a hand.
    • The fight against FlaWizarmon was the start of things getting better - he beats FlaWizarmon without help or even Xrossing. On occasion he's still overwhelmed until he Xrosses, but this is happening significantly less often.

Taiki Kudo

The legendary General who led Xros Heart to victory against the Bagra Empire. In the year since the defeat of Bagramon, Taiki formed a three-man street basketball team along with Yuu and Tagiru, named Xros Heart after the army he led in the Digital World.

Voiced by: Minami Takayama

  • The Artifact: He spends the first few episodes as a mentor for both Tagiru and Yuu. Once the other two are able to stand up on their own, Taiki becomes much less important, to the point where he has absolutely no bearing on the plot of most episodes, and could easily be taken out of many stories without losing much.
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Tagiru and Yuu.
  • Brick Joke: Episode 16: Tagiru and Yuu have to go investigate some paranormal activity on their own because Taiki has to go to a baseball game, but mention that Taiki will catch up to them later. The end of the episode shows that Taiki didn't make it, having exhausted himself during the game again.
  • Sempai/Kōhai: Tagiru refers to him as "sempai."
  • Story-Breaker Power: The Watchmaker flat out said Taiki joining could completely destabilize the hunt. So far, Curb Stomping every opponent Tagiru's had trouble with hasn't done much to prove him wrong.
    • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The purpose of excluding him was to make sure a strong enough hunter would rise up, by helping Taigiru and Gumdramon, who would have likely been crushed in their second hunt, and many others, the watchmaker ended up having to rely on a less than ideal hunter.


Taiki's primary partner Digimon. In the year since he defeated Bagramon, Shoutmon has achieved his dream of becoming the Digimon King. With the assistance of Wisemon, he and the rest of Xros Heart can be called upon by Taiki when he's needed.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • OmegaShoutmon, his super evolved form. A lithe dragon warrior resembling a fully-grown Shoutmon plated in gold.
  • Shoutmon X4, Xrossed with the Starmons, Ballistamon and Dorulumon. A Humongous Mecha amalgamation of the four, wielding the Star Sword. This time, the number of Digimon involved in this Xros means it can be only achieved by giving someone else two of the components, then executing a Double Xros.
  • Shoutmon X7, Xrossed with the Starmons, Ballistamon, Dorulumon, Sparrowmon, and ZekeGreymon. A Humongous Mecha amalgamation of the seven, sporting a giant version of Shoutmon's microphone. Taiki still needs to do Great Xros to use it, but now needs four people to use it instead of the three like the previous series.
  • Shoutmon DX, Xrossed with ZekeGreymon. OmegaShoutmon wears ZekeGreymon's armour in this form, with weaponry formed from both OmegaShoutmon's feet and ZekeGreymon's own weaponry. Formed by Double Xros with Kiriha.

Voiced by: Chika Sakamoto

  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: The victim of this at the hands of Ryouma wielding the Brave Snatcher, making him unable to continue to fight Quartzmon.
  • Improbable Weapon User: That microphone of his is back and deadly as ever.
  • Musical Assassin: The first words he said to Taiki in combat upon returning were "I bet you want to hear my scream again after so long!"
  • Not Allowed to Grow Up: Averted. Though Digimon normally remain static in appearance until evolving, the previous series saw Digimon changing as they grew older, and the same is true for him; he's now taller, his body has become less machine-like, and he looks more battle hardened, resulting in something of a more mature appearance - a "teenage" Shoutmon compared to his "child" years, one could say.

Tropes Associated With Shoutmon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:

  • Shoutmon X4
  • Shoutmon X7
  • Shoutmon DX
  • OmegaShoutmon
  • Fusion Dance: His "Xros Up" forms with his team-mates from Xros Heart.
    • BFG: The Dorulu Cannon, formed with Dorulumon.

Yuu Amano

The younger brother of Taiki's former Xros Heart comrade, Nene Amano; he was once led astray into serving the Bagra Army and killing thousands, but is now determined to make up for it. Since the defeat of Bagramon, Yuu now attends school with Taiki and is one grade below him.

Voiced by: Kanae Oki

  • Felony Misdemeanor: Yuu's focus on being The Atoner causes him to be rather critical of Tagiru and others' motives for being Hunters, but how on the money he is tends to vary from situation to situation. Cases like Hideaki prove that what others have in mind may not necessarily be all that bad.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Was envious of Taiki and Tagiru in episode four because he couldn't do anything to help in battle, but knows it was his own fault Damemon died and presses on regardless.
  • It's All My Fault: Briefly believed that his actions in the previous series led to Damemon intentionally not coming back to him. Needless to say, he was wrong.
  • Out of Focus: Despite being promoted to the main trio, he ends up having very little impact on the overarching plot.
  • The Rival: Acts this way towards Tagiru, but Tagiru is more focused on surpassing Taiki.
  • Ship Tease: With Airu, to the point of being a Running Gag.
  • The Smart Guy: Easily the smartest of the group if Taiki hasn't already taken that role.
  • Supreme Chef: Cooks for Tagiru, Gumdramon, and Cutemon in episode five, and by their reactions Yuu's a pretty good chef.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Tagiru have this dynamic.


Yuu's partner Digimon. In Fusion, he worked for the Bagra Army and was assigned to be Yuu's handler, but came to genuinely care for his charge. His death forced a Heel Realization out of Yuu, and despite Damemon being resurrected the two do not reunite until this series.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Tuwarmon, his super evolved form. A robotic ninja Digimon.

Voiced by: Masami Kikuchi

  • Catchphrase: Same as ever, "Dame Dame!"note 
  • Epic Flail: BUNBUN KEN! note 
  • Expy: Towards Sukamon, as both are basically talking, animated poop.
  • Fartillery: BOO~ST ATTACK!
  • Heel–Face Turn: When he died in Xros Wars, he was still technically part of the Bagra Army. Now he's a full-fledged good guy.
  • Out of Focus: Since his revival, he's had only a handful of lines and appearances, and had an active role only in the ninth episode. Interestingly enough, only Damemon is getting it - Yuu himself still gets very substantial screen time.
    • It seemed to be changing as of episode eleven, then it kind of...didn't. For example, he literally does not appear at all in episode nineteen, despite there being a fairly large fight in which even Airu/Opossumon and a oneshot character actively participate.
  • Redemption Demotion: Played with. In the previous series, Damemon was a disguise worn by Tuwarmon while acting as Yuu's ally. However, since he was reborn as Damemon, and not Tuwarmon, he has to evolve into him rather than transform back and forth like he used to. This has shown no visible effect on his fighting strength.

Tropes Associated With Damemon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:

  • Tuwarmon
    • Bag of Kidnapping: DIGI NINPO! FUROSHIKI ZUTSUMI!note  - Tuwarmon captures the opponent in a bag.
    • Blow You Away: NINPO! FUUJINHA!note 
  • Flash Step: DIGI NINPO! KAWASHIMI NO JUTSU!note  - Tuwarmon quickly moves around to dodge an attack and leaves behind afterimages of himself.
  • Fusion Dance: Does a DigiXros with SuperStarmon in episode 24.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: He's bright yellow and three times Yuu's height. If that's not a Highly Visible Ninja, who knows what is?
  • Inescapable Net: DIGI NINPO! KUMO SHIBARI!note  - Tuwarmon creates an energy net to ensnare his opponent.
  • Ninja Log: DIGI NINPO! KIWARIMI NO JUTSU!note  - A standard "substitution technique" that replaces him and/or Yuu with a very convincing decoy when attacked.
    • Henohenomoheji: The scarecrow decoy he produces has this face upon closer examination...which no-one ever does until it's done its job.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name is commonly spelled by fans as "Tsuwamon", a transliteration predating Toei/Bandai officially calling him "Tuwarmon".

Ryouma Mogami

A mysterious young man who appears to be the leader of the rival team of hunters, though they apparently only work together out of convenience. His Digimon partner is Psychemon.

Voiced by: Tetsuya Kakihara

  • Affably Evil: Or at least affably antagonistic. He tells Taiki that he has a great respect for what he accomplished in the past, and he's reasonably polite to Tagiru as well.
  • Expy: Many have noted that he resembles Neo Saiba.
  • Graceful Loser: In episode 9, Yuu got him to help rescue Taiki by proposing that the two of them and Tagiru work together to try to capture SuperStarmon, and whoever manages to capture him keeps him. Ryouma is true to his word and leaves with no hard feelings, even admitting Yuu outmaneuevered him.
  • Gratuitous English: He managed to rack up a count rivaling Tuwarmon's in the first episode alone.
  • Heel–Face Turn: As of episode 23....but in the next episode...
    • Does it for real in the following (and final) episode.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: In episode 25.
  • The Mole: Subverted in the final episode where it turns out he didn't intentionally betray everyone to attack Taiki....Astamon controlled him to do so.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: He wears a form-fitting business-style suit.


Ryouma's partner Digimon, a reptile Digimon wearing a multi-colored pelt. He's a mon of very few words, but incredibly efficient at getting the job done.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Astamon, his super evolved form. A humanoid demon Digimon resembling a mob boss.

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai

  • Big Bad: He's the terminal of Quartzmon.
  • Captain Ersatz: As a Palette Swap of Gabumon.
  • Composite Character: He's a palette swap of Gabumon but also has Neo Saiba's Arkadiamon's arc of being a rival's Digimon partner that ends up being a mole eaten from the inside-out by the Big Bad.
  • Dead All Along: According to Quartzmon, he was the very first Digimon that he absorbed.
  • Everything's Better with Rainbows: Both of his attacks involve multi-colored lights somehow.
  • The Mole: Granted, he wasn't very friendly to begin with, but went along with allying with Xros Heart multiple times. It's revealed he's a "Terminal" to Quartzmon and had brainwashed Ryouma.
  • Palette Swap: Of Gabumon. Though, it should be noted that he's been around much, much longer than this series, having made his debut way back in Digimon World.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He’s generally a badass and his pelt is coloured neon pink in some places.
  • Third-Option Adaptation: Astamon's default child in the games and cardgame is Phascomon, a dropbear (demonic baby koala). Here, he evolves into from Psychemon, a rainbow-colored Gabumon. Presumably this is because a dopey koala bear wouldn't be intimidating/cool enough to be the partner of the show's main rival.
  • The Stoic: His evolution sequence definitely gives this vibe, with him posing with his arms crossed and then calmly with his hands in his pockets as Astamon.

Tropes Associated With Psychemon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:
  • Astamon
    • Badass Longcoat: A grey one, helps to sell his coolness.
    • Bishōnen Line: He goes from a pink reptile to a humanoid mercenary with wolf-like characteristics.
    • Fusion Dance: His "Xros Up" forms with Ryouma's various captured Digimon:
  • BFG: HELLFIRE! He wields a weapon called Oro Salmón, a gun that resembles an old-fashioned tommy gun.
  • I Call It "Vera": According to supporting material, his tommy-gun is named Oro Salmón, which is Spanish for..."gold salmon". The supporting material says it's made by the same gunsmith as the one behind Beelzebumon's weapon, Berenjena, and Sparrowmon's weapons, Zanahoria, both of which have a similarly unusual name ("eggplant" and "carrot", respectively).

Airu Suzaki

Another member of Ryouma's Hunter group, who considers herself a "Digimon Celebrity." She is focused only on collecting cute Digimon, and isn't above violence and the bending of rules if it will get her what she wants.

Voiced by: Megumi Han

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Despite her appearance and obsession with catching cute Digimon, she’s quite bitchy and violent, though she has a good heart.
  • Blush Sticker: Has two tiny pink circles on her cheeks.
  • Cuteness Proximity: She is only interested in catching cute Digimon.
  • Enemy Mine: A surprising number of her appearances have her teaming up with the heroes, even temporarily.
  • Evil Counterpart: Episode 14 in particular frames her as one to Yuu, with both (or their Digimon) being their respective group's Trap Master.
  • Expy: Just as Ryouma is similar to Neo, Airu has a few similarities to Mari Gotojuki.
  • Ship Tease: With Yuu, to the point of being a Running Gag.
  • Stalker with a Crush: As of episode 19, she's coming pretty close to being this toward Yuu.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The worst example in Digimon history - she is the only girl of the six prominent characters, and isn't even one of the three main characters and thus has isolated appearances.
  • Trap Master: Uses traps to capture Digimon, which is what makes her useful to Ryouma and Ren.


Airu's Digimon partner. A Digimon resembling an opossum holding a set of balloons, she often gets jealous whenever Airu pursues other Digimon or considers them cuter than she is.

Her evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Cho·Hakkaimon, her super evolved form. A humanoid Digimon in what looks like pig-themed armor, based on a (male) character from Journey to the West.

Voiced by: Ryoko Shiraishi

  • Balloonacy: Floats around with three balloons.
  • Cat Smile: A permanent trait of both her and her balloons.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Opossummon gets jealous whenever Airu finds a Digimon she thinks is cuter than she.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Considering she belongs to Airu, she kind of has to be. She gets quite jealous when Airu thinks other Digimon are cuter than her too.

Tropes Associated With Opossummon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:
  • Cho·Hakkaimon
    • Bishōnen Line: Goes from a small mammal to a human in armor.
    • Cute Bruiser: Much, much stronger that she looks. Gumdramon even calls her "freakishly strong!"
    • Cute Monster Girl: She’s a cute human-looking girl in bulky pig armour.
    • Drop the Hammer: KYOUSHIN HŌMURAN!note  - She wields her weapon called the 'Roketto Dīng​pá' that resembles a combination between a hammer and a rake and attacks the opponent with it.
    • Full-Boar Action: She’s dressed up in pig-style armour.
    • Gender Flip: Considering the character Cho·Hakkaimon is based on was a male...
    • Lucky Charms Title: One of a handful of Digimon to have a non-kana/alphabet symbol in their name, and certainly the only one to have one which doesn't even show up on a conventional keyboard (·).
  • Ugly Cute: In-universe, Airu considers Cho·Hakkaimon to be long as she remains effective, anyway.

Ren Tobari

Another member of Ryouma's Hunter team. Despite working with Ryouma, he has no interest in others and prefers to do things his own way. He's proud of the size of his Digimon collection.

Voiced by: Houko Kuwashima

  • Jerkass: His run-in with Tagiru and Yuu makes this trope evident. Also provides a contrast to his partners as he is the only one to have had nothing positive to do with the heroes so far: Ryouma has at least shown the others some measure of legitimate respect, and Airu has taken to semiregularly allying with the heroes.
    • He also has no qualms about hurting or using other humans if it gets him what he wants. In episode six, he had Dracumon magnify the aspiring kendo student, Musashi's, desire to become stronger to dangerous levels before sucking it out of him to increase Dracumon's power.
  • Manipulative Bastard: As shown by episode four, where his attempt to help Tagiru and Gumdramon against Blossomon was actually him using them to distract Blossomon so he and his teammates could move in for the kill.
  • Token Evil Teammate: During the final few episodes, where he really hasn't changed his ways but is part of "the good guys" regardless.


Ren's Digimon partner.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Yaksamon, his super evolved form. A masked samurai Digimon wielding two wooden swords.

Voiced by: Daisuke Kishio

  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Has a red eye in one palm and a green eye in the other, while only having eye-shaped markings on his face.
  • The Hyena: So far, most of what he's done is laugh maniacally.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Or Digitarian, or whatever. Either way, he cheerfully takes a bite out of Blossomon, and then comes back for more later on.
    "I want seconds!"
  • Perverse Puppet: Look closely when he evolves. See all that blue? That's a teddy bear, specifically the one tied to Yaksamon's back.

Tropes associated with Yaksamon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:

  • Yaksamon
    • Ascended Extra: Sort of. Unlike any other main partner Digimon, the Yaksamon species had already shown up several times playing bit parts in earlier anime series (including the original Xros Wars) before Young Hunters happened and graduated it to being a partner Digimon.
    • Cool Mask: A simple white one with circles for eyes. Still awesome though.
    • Dual Wielding: Wields two wooden swords.
  • Horned Humanoid: Has two large white horns sticking up on his head. They may or may not be part of his mask.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": There's three transliterations of his name which have been the accepted Japanese name at some point or another: Yashamon (the straight transliteration and what certain fansubs goes with), Yasyamon (which is what dub supporting material goes with), and Yaksamon (TV Asahi's spelling and thus the current official Japanese name). They're all correct Romanizations of the origin of his name in at least one language ("yaksa" for Thai and Sanskrit, "yasha" and "yasya" for Japanese).
  • Third-Option Adaptation: Dracumon's default evolutions in the games and cardgame are Sangloupmon (a vampire wolf) and Matadormon (a vampiric matador). Here, he evolves into Yaksamon, a kendo demon. This is actually given an In-Universe explanation in that instead of Dracumon evolving normally, Ren and Tobari stole the evolution that was building in Kotemon the kendo Digimon for themselves.
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: He wields a wooden kendo sword. Makes sense considering where the evolution data came from.
  • Youkai: Specifically, his name is derived from a word for a kind of humanoid youkai.

    Secondary Characters and Digimon 

The Watchmaker and Clockmon

A mysterious duo who watch over the Hunter games and give Xros Loaders to whomever wishes to join. His intentions are initially unknown and seem almost sinister.

Voiced By: Takeshi Kusao (Watchmaker); Yuko Maruyama (Clockmon)

  • Big Good: As the guy who hands out the Xros Loaders to this arc’s characters.
  • Blatant Lies: "I'm just a simple clock shop owner." Riiiiiight.
  • Born as an Adult: Considering that Bagramon died a year before Hunters takes place, the Watchmaker can only be less than a year old yet is already an old man.
  • Enigmatic Empowering Entity: Eventually addressed by Shoutmon:
    "Seriously, who is that guy?"
  • Expy: Clockmon is one to the Monitormon from Fusion, right down to having the same voice actor. It's also an expy of the earlier Clockmon species, as this one has the subtle difference of not having some hooded guy sticking out of its top.
    • The Watchman himself seems to fill a similar role to that of Gennai and Yushima.
    • Outside the Digimon franchise, Clockmon not only looks, but also sounds extremely similar to Cantate Domino from Shakugan no Shana, and fulfills the same role as helper of a wise yet eccentric entity.
  • Hijacked by Ganon: An odd and rare Heel–Face Turn example, Considering that he’s a reincarnated Bagramon.
  • Mythology Gag: He spontaneously appears before Mizuki, fishing on a rock, to give her a Xros Loader. Yushima once spontaneously appeared before Masaru, whom he earlier gave a Digivice, apparently fishing; on the other hand, that wasn't in the middle of the ocean.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Unless you consider "Bagramon" to be his name.
  • Opaque Lenses: They hide what his eyes actually look like.
  • Reincarnation: After Bagramon died in the Human World he reincarnated into a human...somehow.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": No-one can decide on a consistent translation of his listed name (時計屋のおやじ) - so you've got such diverse terms as Watch Man, Watchmaker, Old Clock Shop Man, Old Clock Store Owner, ad infinitum.

Mami Takahashi
Mami (center) and her friends, Midori Miike (left) and Haruka Hazuki (right)

A fellow student of Yuu and Tagiru's who is a big fan of Yuu...and not so big a fan of Tagiru.

Voiced by: Yumi Sudou

  • Berserk Button: Apparently Tagiru, for both good and possibly not so good reasons.
  • Expy: She's pretty much Tagiru's Akari, if significantly less friendly with Tagiru himself.
    • She also shares similarities to Jun, like being a fangirl.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Mami has no idea what's going on with the Digimon Hunts, and thus, from her perspective, Tagiru is often babbling even more nonsense than usual.
  • Those Two Guys: Often accompanied by two of Yuu's fellow fangirls, who are named Haruka and Midori.

Team Xros Heart

The core members of Taiki's old team from the previous war, who joined Shoutmon in being able to go to DigiQuartz when Taiki needs them. Just as before, they can still combine with Shoutmon into various DigiXrosses.

Voiced By: Takahiro Sakurai (Dorulumon); Takeshi Kusao (Ballistamon); Houko Kuwashima (Cutemon); Bin Shimada (Starmon); Kokoro Kikuchi (Pickmons); Show Hayami (Wisemon); Ryoko Shiraishi (ChibiKamemon)

  • A Day in the Limelight: Cutemon gets a fair amount of focus in episode five, but then, it may be inaccurate to say that being hounded by Airu is being in "the limelight"...
  • Fusion Dance: In episode 24, the members are Xrossed together to combat Quartzmon's forces.

Hideaki Mashimo

A Hunter who hunts Digimon for profit, collecting rewards from the people he helps in stopping Digimon. However, he's not interested in the money itself- his dream is to open a takoyaki stand once he's old enough, and until then, he's working to collect the money needed to finance the venture. His Digimon partner is Dobermon.

Voiced By: Shuuhei Sakaguchi

  • Ambition Is Evil: Averted. His desire to open a takoyaki stand is based on his dream to make people happy, and he'll do whatever he can to ensure he gets the money he needs fairly. It helps that he's genuinely happy to have assisted people.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He and Dobermon appear in the final scene of the opening sequence, but nothing at all was heard about him for the first month or so of the series' run. It was widely assumed that he was just background filler, like Hirokazu, Kenta and Juri originally were in the Digimon Tamers opening, and they then became Tamers themselves; it's unclear whether that was the case here or he was planned to be a character from the start.
  • Expy: His hard-working personality, his emphasis on getting money in order to fund a far off goal, and his general Nice Guy and "big brother" sort of attitude remind one of Akira Date.
  • Honest John's Dealership: Averted. When he finds out the money he'd made by working with Ganemon was earned fraudulently, he is strongly angered by the Digimon's dishonesty, and at the end of the episode returns all of the money Ganemon stole along with the reward money he had previously gotten, refusing to take a single cent from Ganemon's trickery.
  • Mythology Gag: His dream to open a worldwide chain of takoyaki stores is very similar to Daisuke's dream of opening a worldwide chain of noodle vendors in Digimon Adventure 02.
  • Nice Guy: What he really wants to do is make people happy; profit is just a means to an end for that.
  • Sixth Ranger: The closest one this show ever had. He is even featured in the opening and, unlike other Hunters like Kiichi and Mizuki (who only starred in one episode and were reduced to mare cameos for the rest of the show), he is seen in more episodes joining forces with the three protagonists.

  • We Help the Helpless


Hideaki's Digimon partner. Dobermon is an incredibly fast Digimon whose appearance resembles that of a lean, black, and somewhat demonic-looking dog.

Voiced By: Tomohisa Hashizume

  • Fun Size: In Tamers, he was about the size of a ten-year-old girl. Here, he's the size of a normal Doberman.
  • Gratuitous German: Both of his attacks, "Grau Lärm" and "Schwarz Strahl."
  • Hell Hound: His design certainly evokes this, but see "Dark Is Not Evil" above.
  • Mythology Gag: A certain other dog-based Digimon in an earlier series had a similar catchphrase note .
  • No-Sell: His "Grau Lärm" technique seals his opponent's abilities.
  • The Quiet One: Other than the occasional growl, he says "Yes, Sir!" two times in his first appearance. Other than that, he doesn't speak.

Akari Hinomoto

Taiki's friend and a participant in the war against the Bagra Army, who transferred schools in the year between then and now. As dedicated to helping Taiki as ever, the two of them were lured into a trap by SuperStarmon. As a result, Akari learned about the battles going on in DigiQuartz, and vowed to help Taiki in whatever way she could from then on... which she did by, in the fight with Quartzmon's hordes, gaining a X Loader of her own and becoming a Hunter and the partner of Dorulumon and Cutemon.

Voiced By: Ryoko Shiraishi

  • Character Development: Contrast her attitude here to her attitude in the early episodes of Digimon Fusion. Akari immediately and calmly follows Taiki's lead when they're pulled into DigiQuartz, and is rather laid back when she learns about what was going on. All of this is far removed from the girl who originally only cared about getting home.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Her Running Gag of always having a pillow ready for when when Taiki is about to collapse continues.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: The Watchmaker tosses her a Xros Loader and she gets Dorulumon, Cutemon, and the PawnChessmons.
  • Girlish Pigtails: A rather spiky pair, like in the first season.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Taiki avoided telling her and Zenjirou about what was going on because he was afraid of them getting wrapped up in another dangerous battle.
  • Loophole Abuse: She's the one who helps Taiki figure out that he can form Shoutmon X4 by performing Double Xros with someone else.

Zenjirou Tsurugi

Another one of Taiki's friends from the war against the Bagra Army. Zenjirou originally had no idea of what was occurring in DigiQuartz, but then found out from Taiki after the ordeal with SuperStarmon. In the end, he gets his wish and gets a X Loader, becoming a Hunter and the partner of Ballistamon.

Voiced By: Daisuke Kishio

  • 11th-Hour Ranger: The watchmaker tosses him an Xros Loader and he gets Ballistamon and Revolmon.
  • Jumped at the Call: His first question upon returning? Asking where the old guy giving out Xros Loaders is. In episode 24, he gets his wish.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: In the sense that that was the entire point of his only brief appearance so far.

Nene Amano

Yuu's older sister, who served as a General of Xros Heart in the war against the Bagra Empire. In the year since, she's made a name for herself in Hong Kong as an idol singer. Though initially unaware of DigiQuartz or the Digimon Hunts, Nene found herself being stalked by a mysterious masked man and a Digimon named Harpymon, and contacted her brother and the rest of Xros Heart to help her. Harpymon was stopped, and the masked man was revealed to be Yuu and Nene's father, who had been manipulated by Harpymon into being overprotective of her. Nene and her father reconciled, and she returned to her idol career.

Voiced By: Houko Kuwashima

  • Action Girl: She plays one in a movie and can be considered as such In-Universe given her experience as a General in previous seasons.
  • Celebrity Is Overrated: Averted. Nene is pretty happy with her career, and is shown as being rather competent and engaging in her work. Her father's belief in this trope, however, is what causes him to fall prey to Harpymon.
  • Magic Skirt: In one of her stage outfits, which she ends up fighting in. Her standard outfit seems to have replaced this with a pair of shorts.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Nene was pretty capable before, but even though it was just for a movie, you can't help but appreciate Nene showing off her ability to kick the crap out of several other guys. They were actors in a movie, yes, so no one got hurt, but she really beat them down! (Or at least that's what it looked like.)
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Episode ten reveals her to be this, with her being at odds with her father over his constant absence due to business, and her lack of support in her chosen career. Considering what the Amano siblings went through in the first series, this makes a lot of sense.


One of Nene's Digimon partners, who appears to have stayed with her ever since the war.

Voiced By: Kokoro Kikuchi

  • Badass Adorable: She’s pretty cute, but remember, she used to be Nene’s second-in-command, and she can still kick tail when needed.
  • Jet Pack: Forms one in his DigiXros with Arresterdramon, mirroring the appearance and abilities of Shoutmon X5. The same holds true for JetMervamon.


One of Nene's Digimon partners, who appears to have stayed with her ever since the war.

Her evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • JetMervamon, Xrossed with Sparrowmon. Mervamon is equipped with Sparrowmon's guns and jetpack, and as such has the ability to fly.

Voiced by: Ryoko Shiraishi

Tropes associated with Mervamon's DigiXros forms:
  • JetMervamon

Kiichi Funabashi
A classmate of Tagiru's who is a huge fan of locomotives and railroads, he befriended a Locomon in DigiQuartz. Not interested in Hunting, he instead opts to travel the world with Locomon and any kids who desire to ride with them.

Voiced by: Makiko Ohmoto

  • Keet: When he first met Locomon, he got just as worked up about how awesome he is as Tagiru gets about...well, everything. He even does the steam-out-of-the-nose thing!
  • Rail Enthusiast: He really likes trains.
  • Refusal of the Call: Of a sort; he's not interested in Digimon Hunting, and only got a Xros Loader from the Watchmaker so he could stay with Locomon.
  • The Sleepless: Runs himself to exhaustion while spending all night travelling with Locomon.

Kiichi's Digimon partner. He's a Digimon in the shape of a locomotive. He was tempted by Ren's claims that he could unlock his true potential to become faster, but decided he preferred enjoying travelling with Kiichi. After escaping the control of Airu's Parasimon, he officially returned to Kiichi's side.

Voiced by: Eiji Takemoto

  • For Happiness: Runs on the smiles of his passengers, in a rare benevolent version (for this series) of the Emotion Eater trope.
  • Good Old Robot: Eventually decides to embrace being a slow, dependable steam engine rather than a reckless speedster.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Gains glowing versions of these while under the influence of Parasimon while having eyes that are already red.
  • Too Fast to Stop: His dream was to go as fast as possible, and then some. When Airu's Parasimon latches onto him, however, he's unable to stop (mainly because Parasimon kept him from working the brakes).
  • Whole Plot Reference: To the second Digimon Tamers movie, The Runaway Digimon Express.

Kiriha Aonuma

Taiki's former rival turned ally from the war with the Bagra Empire. After the war, Kiriha spent some time in America, and he learned of DigiQuartz and started investigating of his own accord, meeting up with Greymon and the rest of Blue Flare again along the way. He participated in and ultimately won the Hunter competition on the southern island.

Voiced by: Takeshi Kusao

  • Badass Longcoat: He spent most of the episode observing everyone from afar in one of these.
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Sort of - it's pretty similar to how it was at the end of Xros Wars, but it's much less sharp and angular, reflecting the culmination of him becoming significantly less of a jerkass.

Haruki, Noboru, and Ken
Ken (left), Noboru (middle), and Haruki (right)

Three Hunters who participated in the hunt for Volcdramon and were later on the receiving end of Betsumon's trickery. Their Digimon partners are Witchmon, Allomon, and ShimaUnimon, respectively.

Voiced by: Kouta Nemoto (Haruki), Yuuta Kasuya (Noboru), and Hiroshi Okamoto (Ken)

  • Combat Pragmatist: These three were quick to try and stop Tagiru so they could have a chance at Volcdramon themselves.
ShimaUnimon (left,) Allomon (middle), Witchmon (top right)
Tropes associated with Haruki, Noboru, and Ken's partners:
  • Witchmon
  • Head Pet: Has a black cat-like creature wrapped around her shoulders.
  • Allomon
  • ShimaUnimon


A deep-sea treasure hunter who became a Digimon Hunter after discovering a strange underwater cave connected to DigiQuartz. Her partner is Sabmarimon.

Voiced by: Satsuki Yukino

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Briefly on the receiving end of this from Dagomon. Taiki and Plesiomon snap her out of it.
  • Jumped at the Call: A strange example: she readily accepted a Xros Loader from the Watchmaker because of her desire to gain access to the cave's treasure, but she doesn't have much of an interest in hunting Digimon.
  • Meaningful Name: Mizuki.
  • No Name Given: She doesn't have a known surname.


Mizuki's partner, a living submarine-fish with a head compartment in which Mizuki can ride.

Voiced by: Aiko Hibi

  • Expy: Sabmarimon originated as one of the armor-evolved forms of Armadimon, and this one seems to be of similar temperament.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Sabmarimon" became the current official Romanization of the name as of his appearance here, but it has a pretty obvious error in it. Up until then, he was officially known by the more sensible transliteration "Submarimon", and as such odds are that few will bother with this rename.

    Other Digimon 


The same Pinocchimon who Taiki and the other members of Xros Heart met in Dust Zone during the war with the Bagra Empire. In episode three, he appears, not recognizing Taiki and Shoutmon, and trying to convince the Robot Club of the characters' school to build GigaBreakdramon, in order to use its power to make himself the strongest Digimon in the world. Thankfully, Taiki and Shoutmon were able to snap him out of it.

Voiced By: Kei'ichi Nanba

  • Drop the Hammer: His weapon of choice as always. BULLET HAMMER!
  • Mind-Control Eyes: His eyes notably lack the shine that is normally in them. He regains them after he snaps out of his brainwashing.
  • Not Himself: Even ignoring the Mind-Control Eyes, him suddenly using a bunch of kids’ resentment over being unable to finish their project to brainwash them into make a mech-suit-Digimon so he can become the strongest Digimon in the world is completely out of line with his prior characterisation and a definite clue that something’s wrong with him.
  • Pinocchio Nose: Just as before. Only this time, Taiki and Shoutmon recognize it. Tagiru doesn’t though.
  • The Power of Friendship: Taiki jumping in to protect him snaps him out of whatever it was affecting him.


A Digimon who appeared in DigiQuartz and mentored both Tagiru and Musashi Kenzaki in the art of kendo. He was originally suspected of aiding Musashi in taking down other kendo students, but ultimately, he was not responsible. He ended up lending his power to Tagiru and Gumdramon, joining their team.

Voiced By: Rokurou Naya

  • Nice Guy: Unlike a lot of the other Digimon our heroes have met (who in fairness were Brainwashed and Crazy), Kotemon reached out to humans because he genuinely wanted to help them better themselves. He then trained Tagiru because he was worried about Musashi and thought Tagiru could get through to him via a kendo match.
  • Shock and Awe: THUNDER KOTE!note 
  • Vocal Dissonance: Looking at him, you'd expect him to sound like a small child as he did previouslynote . However, he has the voice of a relatively old man.
  • Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: His personal weapon is a shinai, a traditional kendo weapon made of grass and wood.


Tagiru captured this Digimon after it terrorized an okonomiyaki shop owner into cooking for it. Pagumon ended up inadvertently causing a falling-out between Tagiru and Gumdramon, and after trying its first actual bite of okonomiyaki went berserk. Pagumon duplicated and went on a rampage of gluttony before a reunited Gumdramon and Tagiru stopped it.

Voiced By: Chinami Nishimura

  • Bratty Halfpint: Played with. Pagumon means well, but he's childish and flies off the handle, as opposed to Gumdramon, whose driven more by ego.
  • Explosive Breeder: Well, it's more like self-duplication, but given he's a talking rabbit's head...
  • Making a Splash: He spits out streams of poisonous bubbles.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: After duplicating himself, otherwise they're just pink with yellow irises.note 
  • Turns Red: However, it's eventually revealed that this wasn't because of any change in strength but rather that he was using the okonomiyaki he ate to make duplicates of himself.
  • Wave of Babies: Considering Pagumon is a baby-level Digimon normally...yeah. It's powerful enough a wave to completely overwhelm MetalTyrannomon.


A Digimon shaped like a 10 yen coin who sent his Zenimon and KoZenimon into a shopping district in order to collect money for him, so he could devour enough of the human greed attached to it in order to increase his power. After using an unwitting Hideaki and Tagiru to help him, his true nature became known, and he was defeated. Afterwards, he joined Hideaki's team and was made to atone for his actions by returning the money he'd stolen.

Voiced By: Naoki Tatsuta

  • The Atoner: Hideaki sees to that once all is said and done.
  • Attack Drone: His attacks basically amount to throwing his Zenimon at his opponents.
  • Emotion Eater: Ganemon devours money, but it's the greed attached to it that powers him up.
  • Golden Super Mode: Goes from brown-colored to gold upon powering up, and curiously retains it when he's defeated.


A Digimon who resembles Starmon. He captured a number of famous individuals in order to put them in his "collection" of superstars, and intended to add Taiki to his list. Ultimately, he was defeated by a combination of Shoutmon X4, Arresterdramon, Astamon, and Tuwarmon, upon which he became a member of Yuu's Digimon team.

Voiced By: Yūji Mitsuya

  • Attack Drone: He can generate multiple smaller Starmon to attack for him, as well as move about and search for him.
  • Graceful Loser: After being defeated, he releases the parts of his "collection", apologizes, and even compliments Tagiru on his actions during the battle.


A Digimon who grew stronger by absorbing the motivation of humans, leaving them listless and weak. Tagiru and Gumdramon went after him, only for Tagiru to become FlaWizarmon's next victim. He proceeded to take on Tagiru's personality, and as such, proved to be nearly unbeatable, until Tagiru regained his resolve and defeated him with the help of Arresterdramon.

  • Determinator: Due to absorbing Tagiru's "determinator-ness". FlaWizarmon effectively weaponizes it, and uses it to survive being otherwise beaten by Tuwarmon and OmegaShoutmon. This folds like a house of cards once Tagiru points out it isn't really his determination, and is just stolen.
  • Emotion Eater: Specifically, other people's motivation.
  • Glasgow Grin: The stitches on his mouth reach to his cheeks.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Had these before Arresterdramon did.
  • Hotblooded: At first after absorbing the motivation of Tagiru's teacher, and then doubly so after absorbing Tagiru himself's.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He wields two wands that look like matchsticks.
  • Playing with Fire: His main power, harnessed into his matchstick wands.
  • Simple Staff: Can join both wands into one of these.

Ogremon and Fugamon
Fugamon (left) and Ogremon (right)

Two Digimon who, in an attempt to improve their ramen, partnered up with the father of Tagiru's classmate, Masaru, whose own ramen was lacking. Together, the three of them became successful, with the side effect of all three coming to devalue their own customers. Masaru, Tagiru and the others challenged the ogres to a ramen contest, and when they lost, Ogremon and Fugamon attempted to take Masaru's father back by force. After being Hunted, both Digimon were brought to their senses.

Voiced By: Ryūzaburō Ōtomo (Ogremon) and Yasuhiro Takato (Fugamon)

  • Palette Swap: Fugamon, as he's basically a brown Ogremon with a different loincloth.note 
  • Playing with Fire: Ogremon's HAOUKEN!note 
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Well, more like Green Oni and Red Oni, in Ogremon and Fugamon's case. The less literal aspects of this trope are subverted in that their personalities are largely the same.
    • This also applies to their preferred ingredients.
  • Stock Femur Bone: Ogremon and Fugamon's weapons of choice.
  • Supreme Chef: Subverted. Their noodles are great but their soup stock is atrocious.
  • Verbal Tic: "Ogre" and "Fuga". Guess which one uses which.

A demon who feeds off the energy of human children. He disguises himself as an angelic figure who promises Makoto that he can make him get friends, but instead comes dangerously close to sacrificing their entire school to empower himself.

Voiced By: Ryō Horikawa

Patamon and Poyomon
Patamon (left) and Poyomon (right)

A pair of Digimon that live together in an abandoned Power Plant. Recently, Patamon was caught in the trap of Airu when she came to the Power Plant in search of a cute Digimon. Poyomon, believing her to be a bully, attacked Airu and kidnapped Opposumon to get back at her. Eventually, Patamon is freed from the cage with the help of Kaoru and makes everyone promise to let them live in peace. Afterward, Patamon thanks Kaoru one last time before leaving.

  • People Puppets: Poyomon can do this. Oddly enough, this is the only time a Poyomon has been shown to have this power.

A master thief and a known wanted criminal, who disguises himself as other Digimon and uses their powers. He has a history with Gumdramon.

Voiced By: Daisuke Kishio

  • Dirty Coward: He abandoned Gumdramon when the two of them were in danger.
  • An Ice Person: COLD GAG! - By telling a really bad joke, he can cover the opponent in ice.
    • This can be used against him if someone else tells a really bad joke, as Taiki demonstrates.
  • Master of Disguise: He wears costumes of other Digimon and can use weaker versions of their moves. He even adopts their mannerisms and way of speaking.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: His costumes are never quite right, always imperfect and having the appearance of being rather cheaply produced (which they are). Also, his actual face is never covered by the costume, which is Played for Laughs - when someone catches up with him in disguise, he turns around to reveal his true identity.


A mysterious Digimon who is the master of Gokuwmon and (presumably) the ally of Shoutmon. She is the one responsible for imprisoning Gumdramon for running wild in the digital world, as well as placing the Kinkoji Power Limiter on his tail. Aside from this, very little is known about her as she has only appeared in a flashback so far.

  • Stealth Mentor: The Power Limiter ring that she placed on Gumdramon's tail serves to inhibit his strength until he acknowledges the importance of his bond to his partner, at which point it starts strengthening rather than weakening him, subtly teaching Gumdramon the importance of fighting for the right reasons.
  • Wild Card: While Shoutmon clearly doesn't see her as an enemy, it's not entirely clear just where Sanzomon stands or what her ultimate agenda is.

A Digimon who brings Shouta's creative UMA drawings to life and is impassioned by Shouta's imagination. They come at odds with Tagiru and the others. When a powerful drawing runs amuck, though, he and Shouta work with them in destroying it. Ekakimon later voluntarily joins Tagiru.

Voiced By: Kappei Yamaguchi

  • Verbal Tic: Has a tendency to use "ragingly" as an adjective.

A Digimon protecting a single DigiTama in an deep-sea cavern in DigiQuartz, menaced by Dagomon. According to Shoutmon, she's a legendary Digimon that is rare to find.

Voiced by: Misa Watanabe

  • Beehive Barrier: It's generated one to protect its hiding place, which only humans can pass. Dagomon uses this to his advantage by brainwashing Mizuki.

A giant Digimon that was terrorizing Plesiomon in order to get her DigiTama and absorb it along with her to become stronger. He hypnotizes Mizuki as a plan to get through Plesiomon's barrier and attacks them once he succeeds. Eventually, he's defeated by a combination of Mizuki and Tagiru and is captured by the latter.

A Digimon that Hiroya befriended as a KnightChessmon and helped him steal rare cards so he could be the best at a popular card game. However, RookChessmon was just using Hiroya to make himself stronger and bigger. As he sucked more and more of Hiroya's emotions, he went from a white KnightChessmon to a black one and eventually evolved into RookChessmon. Together, Yuu, Tagiru, and Taiki defeated the Digimon and it was captured by Yuu.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • KnightChessmon (White), the form he's in when he first meets Hiroya
  • KnightChessmon (Black), a form he took after taking enough of Hiroya's energy. The same as usual, but black in color.
  • RookChessmon (Black), his super evolved form. A large castle based Digimon with several cannons attached to its body.

  • Emotion Eater: Ambition. He eventually super evolves by feeding on Hiroya's pride at being the best at a game.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: His defense was broken when his own attack hit his body, allowing the others to defeat him.
  • Make My Monster Grow: He gets larger after feeding on Hiroya's emotions.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He was very small when he first showed up, even smaller than the main character's Digimon.

Tropes associated with RookChessmon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Turns out he's not immune to his own attacks.
  • Pride: After feeding on Hiroya's ambition and pride for the entire episode, he's shown to be quite arrogant himself, boasting about his perfect defenses.


A group of Bakomon that work at Digimon Land. Their job is to invite children to the amusement park to play and have fun. As it turned out, the Bakomons were being used by Jokermon and Sephirotmon to get children so the latter can power himself up by eating them and absorbing their happiness. However, the brown Bakomon realized how wrong this was and helped Tagiru stop Sephirotmon from using the emotions he absorbed, allowing Tagiru to defeat it.

Jokermon and Sephirotmon
Jokermon (left) and Sephirotmon (right)
Jokermon is the manager of Digimon Land. He enlists the Bakomon to invite children to Digimon Land so he can feed them to the real owner of Digimon Land, Sephirotmon, and power him up. Once Tagiru, Taiki, and Yuu found out, they confronted the two Digimon. With the help of Bakomon, the children were freed and Sephirotmon and Jokermon were captured by Tagiru.


A Digimon that caused havoc in DigiQuartz, leading Tagiru and Hideaki to investigate it. When Tagiru, Hideaki, and Kaneda ended up in DigiQuartz to search for it, MetallifeKuwagamon kidnapped Kaneda in order to hold him hostage. Eventually, they rescued Kaneda and Arresterdramon defeated him, but when Tagiru tried to capture himMetallifeKuwagamon revealed that he has already been hunted by an evil Digimon Hunter. Before he could explain more, Quartzmon came and absorbed him, killing the Digimon.

  • His Name Is...: He is absorbed by Quartzmon before he could tell who the Hunter is.

Other Captured Digimon

The point of Digimon hunting: to capture and collect Digimon. Digimon encountered and defeated in Digimon Hunts can be captured and stored within the Hunters' Xros Loaders as part of their collection, and can be called upon like the main partner, or used to DigiXros.note 

  • Defeat Means Friendship: Once captured, they seem to be freed from whatever made them go berserk in the first place, and seem happy to help their Hunter out in battle in exchange.
  • Fusion Dance: They can be DigiXrossed using the Xros Loader, much like in the previous series, creating a "Xros Up" form for the main Digimon in the pair.

Tropes associated with Tagiru's captured Digimon:note
Tagiru's Digimon collection as of episode 14.note 
Voiced By: Daisuke Kishio (MetalTyrannomon); Shigeru Chiba (Sagomon); Takeshi Kusao (Blossomon); Takahiro Sakurai (Harpymon)

  • Blossomon
  • Palette Swap: He's one with different colored petals, with them being pink instead of purple. This is actually a minor plot point, as it identifies him as a rare variation of the species.
  • GigaBreakdramon
    • Humongous Mecha: He fits this role, as he was created by a bunch of kids with Pinocchimon's help.
    • Palette Swap: A recolor of the original Breakdramon in a different shade of green with purple highlights.
    • Shout-Out: GigaBreakdramon's green-and-purple color scheme matches the traditional palette of some other heavy-machinery characters, the Constructicons.
  • Harpymon
  • MetalTyrannomon
    • Dumb Muscle: He gives off this vibe whenever he's out and doing stuff.
  • Mighty Glacier: MetalTyrannomon's emphasis is on defense, and he's not very fast, at least when compared to the more nimble Gumdramon/Arresterdramon and Sagomon.

Tropes associated with Airu's captured Digimon.note 

  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: This being Airu's preference in Digimon, this obviously applies to whatever she bothers to capture.
  • Parasimon
  • Ugly Cute: Another in-universe example. Seeing it as this is the only possible reason why Airu would ever have something like it in her collection (according to her: "Kinda cute in a gross way, right?")

Tropes associated with Ren's captured Digimon:note 

  • Bambification: Possibly averted by Moosemon, given Ren is an antagonist, and depending whether it'll be anything like what was described in its Bandai profile note .
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A (different) Plesiomon played a major role well after this one showed up in Ren's collection.
  • Mythology Gag: Many of Ren's Digimon had roles as mooks or antagonists in previous series. Some, like Nanimon, Digitamamon, and Nanomon, were fairly prominent in Digimon Adventure.

Tropes associated with Hideaki's captured Digimon:note 
Voiced By: Daisuke Kishio (Zenimon), Ryoko Shiraishi (KoZenimon)

Tropes associated with the staff on Kiichi and Locomon's train:note 

  • Carnivore Confusion: Pumpmon serves pumpkin-related snacks on Locomon's train. Considering how angry Jagamon, a potato Digimon, got at people for eating potato chips, this raises...interesting questions.
  • Chest Insignia: The "D" on Dogmon's chest.

Tropes associated with Kiriha's captured Digimon:note 

Voiced By:
  • Volcdramon
    • Attack Its Weak Point: ZekeGreymon finishes it off by hitting a glowing spot on its underbelly.
    • Kaiju: It's so big that Tagiru is barely as tall as its claws and its very presence threatens a nearby town due to the heat it lets off causing geysers to erupt everywhere.
    • Lava Adds Awesome: It's a dragon made mostly of partly-cooled lava.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Volcdoramon" is the current official Romanization of his name, but it has a pretty obvious transliteration mistake in it. Accordingly, most people still call it by its slightly more sensible prior official Romanization: Volcdramon.

Tropes associated with the staff on Digimon Land:note 

  • Carnivore Confusion: Yakiimon, a sweet potato Digimon is seen giving kids baked sweet potatoes. Oddly enough, the other potato-based Digimon, Jagamon, attacked people for eating potato chips, it gets kind of confusing.


A Digimon that Tagiru encountered at his school as a Tsumemon. When he tried to hunt it, the Tsumemon super evolved into Keramon and began to fuse the real world and DigiQuartz together. As they chased it, the Digimon continued super evolving until it became the giant Diablomon. Eventually, it was defeated by Shoutmon X7 and was revealed to be a clone, created by Quartzmon.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • Tsumemon, a creature with one eye that resembles a combination of a clawed hand and a foot.
  • Keramon, his first super evolved form. An octopus creature with large hands and constantly giggles.
  • Chrysalimon, his second super evolved form. A chrysalis-like creature with powerful tendrils
  • Infermon, his third super evolved form. A spider-like creature that has a gun in its mouth.
  • Diablomon, his final super evolved form. A creature resembling the devil with long arms and horns.

  • The Assimilator: At three points in the episode, Diablomon tries to absorb Gumdramon, almost succeeding the final time. Given what this Diablomon actually is and who it works for, this makes sense.
  • Emergency Transformation: While this guy evolves from Tsumemon to Infermon stages normally, when it comes time for Diablomon, the Quartz minion impersonating Infermon emerges from the arachnid's body unnaturally before calling on the rock minions to finish the change.
  • Expy: The entire episode about this thing is a reference to Digimon Adventure's second movie, Our War Game; it's also the third Digimon production to featured an antagonistic Keramon, as there was such an episode in Savers as well.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Only takes this form and size after his Infermon form receives mortal damage. He even calls on the rest of the rock minions to make a digital field big enough to emerge from.

Tropes associated with Diablomon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:
  • Infermon

An army of clones created by Quartzmon to combat the heroes. Once Team Xros Heart fought back, the Vamdemon evolved into VenomVamdemon and BelialVamdemon and began to defeat them. Xros Heart was saved from the characters from previous series and the army was defeated.

Their evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • BelialVamdemon, a demonic creature with mouths on its shoulders and giant glider wings.
  • VenomVamdemon, a gigantic monstrous version of Vamdemon.

  • Adaptational Personality Change: Unlike the cackling scheming original Vamdemon, these ones never talk or display any ability to. Here, they're more like mindless monsters.
  • Degraded Boss: Once upon a time, back in Digimon Adventure, that single Vamdemon was actually a massive threat. That pretty much makes the mass creation and slaughter of them here ten times funnier.

The Big Bad of this series. It is the creator of the DigiQuartz and has been designated as the final and greatest hunt target.
  • The Assimilator: His goal is to absorb Earth for some reason. He succeeds, temporarily.
  • Came Back Wrong: Going by Diablomon and Vamdemon's behaviour, Quartzmon doesn't seem to bother giving its minor mooks (based on Digimon it absorbed) actual identities- they either roar like T-Rexes or only think to fulfill their master's goals.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Certainly seems like one based on what we know of it thus far.
  • Face Stealer: It can absorb the data of other Digimon and take their form or create clones based on that data.
  • Foreshadowing: The floating islands that seem to be spawned by Quartzmon appear in the opening of the series long before first one of them appears in the series proper.
  • Glass Cannon: The minions Quartzmon creates are incredibly powerful...yet can be easily killed in kind.
  • Meaningful Name: Obviously gives the name to the DigiQuartz. Going with the time theme in this series, the name might also refer to quartz clocks.
  • No Ontological Inertia: Earth returns to normal after he's defeated by Tagiru.
  • One-Winged Angel: It first appears in the form of a Diablomon, taking its true form after Diablomon is defeated.
    • In episode 24 it transforms again, from the tower form into a form resembling the D-Reaper's kernel sphere with four mechanical limbs.
  • Send in the Clones: It can create hordes of clones of Digimon whose data it has absorbed. So far, it has shown doing this to the Diablomon line and Vamdemon.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When Tagiru and Arresterdrmon assault his core and have a real shot of defeating him.
Tropes associated with Quartzmon's second form:

  • Expy: This form is one of Apocalymon. It has a vaguely humanoid body attached to a giant sphere, similar to Apocalymon's dodecahedron. While fighting Tagiru as it absorbs the world, it attacks with clawed limbs similar to Apocalymon's.
    • Its design and omnicidal tendencies also evoke the D-Reaper somewhat. It also winds up absorbing the Earth, which was Snatchmon/Ragnamon's goal.
  • Extra Eyes: This form, the planet after Quartzmon absorbs it and the cube that is his central core all have six red eyes. The sphere also has an eye design on it.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Four long, thin arms.

    Other Characters 

Tokio Hinoki

A member of Tagiru and Yuu's school robotics club. Desperate to create a robot design capable of winning a competition, he and his friends are manipulated by Pinocchimon into helping him complete GigaBreakdramon.

Voiced by: Akemi Okamura

  • Continuity Nod: Tokio shows up in the following episode, having apparently started showing up for class again. He crops up again in episode thirteen.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His and his friends' reactions upon realizing just what their creation is capable of.
  • Workaholic: Again, another effect of the aforementioned situation.

Miho Sudou

Another member of Tagiru and Yuu's class. Miho became frustrated with her jealousy towards students who did achieved higher scores than her, and thus became corrupted through contact with Blossomon, who helped her get revenge. She was ultimately saved and resolved of her issues thanks to Yuu and the other hunters.

Voiced by: Kaori Mizuhashi

  • Continuity Nod: Gets a background cameo in episode thirteen, once again in Yuu and Tagiru's class.
  • Fangirl: Seems to join the ranks of Yuu's fangirls, as she's shown cheering for him at the end of her episode.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: She gains markings around her eyes identical to Blossomon's, showing that the line where she begins and Blossomon ends have started to blur.
  • "Not So Different" Remark: Tries pulling this on Yuu, after sensing the jealousy in her heart, only to find out that despite his envy, he wasn't prepared to go to the same lengths as her.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: When corrupted, at least.

Musashi Kenzaki

A kendo practitioner who was beaten by Taiki and swore to defeat him. He became a student of Kotemon, who tried to help him improve his technique. Unfortunately, his strong desire to get stronger led to him being manipulated by Ren and Dracumon, who drove him to attack other kendo students as a tsuji-giri.

Mr. Amano

Yuu and Nene's father, a prominent businessman. Because of his work, he is often estranged from his wife and children, but loves them very much all the same. That love, and worry for Nene over her idol career, is what led to Harpymon taking advantage of him and feeding off his feelings. Posing as a masked man, he was driven to attack anyone who he thought came close to Nene in order to protect her. When Harpymon was defeated, he was snapped out of it, and made peace with his daughter.

Masaru and Katsuji
Masaru (left) and his father Katsuji (right)

A father and son whose family own and operate a ramen restaurant. Katsuji was a decent ramen chef - whose personal recipe included a decent fish stock but less decent quality noodles - but a rival store began to take their business. Eager to improve his business, Katsuji accepted Ogremon and Fugamon's help, combining their recipes. Though the restaurant experienced better business, Masaru was ashamed to find his father becoming less and less concerned with satisfying his customers, even berating those who didn't care for the new recipe. Masaru challenged Fugamon and Ogremon to a ramen competition with Tagiru and the others' help, and snapped his father out of it by making Katsuji's original recipe. Ultimately, Katsuji improved business by reaching a compromise, accepting the two Digimons' contributions to improve his own recipe while keeping theirs on the menu as well.

Voiced By: Megumi Urawa (Masaru), Takuma Yamazaki (Katsuji)

  • One Steve Limit: Averted. While it's unusual enough for any Digimon character to share their name with another, the other Masaru appears as a major supporting character during the last few episodes.
  • Ramen Slurp: Only natural that their episode brings about this trope.
  • Supreme Chef: Averted, in the case of both father and son. Katsuji's ramen recipe is lacking on its own, and Masaru's isn't fit to be sold. It's only what it represented that had any significance.
  • Unsatisfiable Customer: Subverted, in that Katsuji's inability to suffer any criticism of "his" new recipe is the source of the problem.


One of Tagiru and Yuu's classmates. He loves to draw, but the other kids in the class tease him for having a wild imagination. He eventually meets Ekakimon, a pencil Digimon who loves his imagination and can bring his art to life. When Tagiru, Yuu, and Taiki try to stop him from bringing his creations to life, Shouta and Ekakimon enter DigiQuartz to create the strongest UMA to battle them. However, it goes out of control until Shouta gives Arresterdramon an eraser to destroy it.

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Due to being angry while creating his strongest UMA, it goes out of control.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: His strongest UMA is simply a combination of his three-eyed Plesiosaur, the Dragon, the Cyclops, and the Big Hand Foot.


A kid who enjoys playing a popular card game but is unable to win due to not having stronger, rarer cards. He encounters a KnightChessmon and uses him to steal rare cards from other players. Unbeknownst to Hiroya, KnightChessmon was just using him and absorbing his greed for strength in order to super evolve into RookChessmon. After seeing Yuu defeat RookChessmon, Hiroya realizes that power is not all that one needs to be strong.

  • Ambition Is Evil: It's his ambition to be the best at a card game that RookChessmon feeds on.

Isamu Kaneda

One of Tagiru and Yuu's classmates who has an obsession with insects. He attempted to capture a golden stag beetle that had been recently seen in order to prove it as a new species. When he followed Tagiru and Hideaki into DigiQuartz, he captures it, only to find that it was a part of MetallifeKuwagamon. Afterward, he was captured by the Digimon and held hostage so it could escape.

  • Berserk Button: He hates people who want to use bugs to get money. His belief that Tagiru and Hideaki intended to do this caused him to follow them and get sucked into DigiQuartz.
  • Captain Ersatz: He's a clone of Yu-Gi-Oh's Insector Haga, down to the hairdo and glasses.

    Returning characters and their Digimon 
Characters from the five prior Digimon anime series. They were recruited from their own universes by the Watch Man and spread out throughout the world in order to combat the threat of Quartzmon's international apparitions, with the five leaders in particular - Tai, Davis, Takato, Takuya and Marcus - required, as five of the six legendary heroes who saved their worlds (the sixth being Taiki himself), to come to Tokyo and help take on Quartzmon himself.

Tropes applying to the returning heroes in general:

  • The Cameo: Silhouettes of other past characters not given a proper appearance are seen in the beginning of episode 24: (in order) Tamers!Beelzemon, Sora and Garudamon, Yolei and Aquilamon, Keenan and Ravemon, MegaGargomon, Beetlemon, MagnaGarurumon, Cody and Ankylomon, Angemon, Angewomon, and Justimon. The brief appearances of Joe, Gomamon and Tentomon are this in a more conventional sense.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: All of them, being that they showed up in the fourth-last episode and didn't start really doing anything until the second-last.
  • The Voiceless: A disappointing number of those who got prominent roles remained completely silent in their appearances. This got particularly awkward with some of the Digimon, because after all, this franchise is very well-known for Calling Your Attacks. Several of the characters who did speak were originally voiced by actors who also voiced regulars in Xros War— the only Frontier character to speak besides Takuya was Tomoki, who shares a seiyuu with Gumdramon.

Digimon Adventure

Taichi "Tai" Kamiya
The leader of the Chosen Children of Digimon Adventure. He first showed up on a boat sailing through the DigiQuartz with other Digimon protagonists. Later, he showed up along with Marcus to battle a giant floating island with a face, saving Tagiru from being consumed by it in the process.

Voiced by: Toshiko Fujita

  • Nonstandard Character Design: Like in Adventure and Adventure 02, the non-whites parts of his eyes are entirely brown with no distinct pupil; Mimi, Davis, Ken, Matt, and Joe aside, this is not the case for any other human in this series. This is particularly odd since Marcus's design was modified to conform with this series' art style, yet those from Adventure and Adventure 02 went untouchednote .


Tai's Digimon partner. He was first seen on a boat with his partner, and later appeared to battle against a giant floating island with a face, saving Tagiru from being consumed by it in the process.

His evolved and DigiXros forms in this series are as follows:

  • WarGreymon, his Mega level form. An anthropomorphic dinosaur, with golden mech-armor.
  • Omnimon, a fusion with MetalGarurumon. A white paladin-like figure wielding a WarGreymon-themed sword and a MetalGarurumon-themed cannon.

Voiced by: Chika Sakamoto

  • One Steve Limit: Averted. There are multiple Agumon of some importance in the Xros Wars canon - this one, Marcus's, and the three that comprise a DigiMemory.
Tropes associated with Agumon's Evolved or fused forms:
  • Omnimon
    • Adaptational Wimp: Very much a downplayed trope, but it's there. In his own series, he's orders of magnitude more powerful than his two constituent Digimon, and able to destroy thousands of Mega level digimon with a single casual attack. Here, while still undeniably badass, he's only a bit more impressive than War Greymon and decidedly cannot destroy all the attacking Myotismon at once
  • Your Size May Vary: In the original he's positively huge. In this series he's not too much larger than War Greymon and much smaller than Imperialdramon

The evolved form of Yamato's Digimon partner, Gabumon. He first appeared to battle against Quartzmon's forces and combined with Agumon to become Omegamon.

His fused forms in this series are as follows:

  • Omnimon, a fusion with WarGreymon. A white paladin-like figure wielding a WarGreymon-themed sword and a MetalGarurumon-themed cannon.

Mimi Tachikawa

One of the Chosen Children of Digimon Adventure. She showed up along with Ruki where they are seen helping Kiriha and Nene. When Kiriha thanked her for having some help from Hunters, she and Ruki both held up their Digvice and D-Arc, respectively, to signify that they are not Hunters.

  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Her Digivice is now coloured green; in Adventure it was normally grey, only ever temporarily becoming green when Palmon digivolved to Lillymon.

The partner of Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi, who hasn't shown up. Tentomon appeared to explain exactly what the five previous leaders were doing to Zenjirou and Akari.

Voiced by: Takahiro Sakurai

  • Mr. Exposition: Besides being well within his established personality traits, he probably gets the job because his seiyuu was already on-staff voicing other Digimon in the series.

Digimon Adventure 02

Davis Motomiya
The leader of the Chosen Children of Digimon Adventure 02. He first showed up on a boat sailing through the DigiQuartz with other Digimon protagonists. Later, he showed up to battle against Quartzmon with Tai, Takato, Takuya, and Marcus.

Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi

  • Goggles Do Nothing: He's wearing Tai's...while Tai is wearing them as well. Blame time travel.
  • Hot Paint Job: His jacket, which keeps the pattern even though he's not in the Digital World.


Daisuke's Digimon partner. He was first seen on a boat with his partner, and later appeared to battle against Quartzmon's forces.

His evolved and mode changed forms in this series are as follows:

  • Magnamon, his armor evolved form using the Armor Digi-Egg of Miracles. A larger, bulkier V-mon with golden armor.
  • Imperialdramon, his DNA Digivolved Mega form with Ken's Stingmon. An enormous black dragon with red wings.
  • Imperialdramon Fighter Mode, a humanoid Mode Changed version of Imperialdramon.

  • The Voiceless: A weird example, since Junko Noda, Veemon's original voice actress, voiced Shouta in Hunters, yet didn't reprise her role as V-mon.
Tropes associated with Veemon's Digivolved or mode changed forms:
  • Magnamon
    • Continuity Nod Seems to switch to Imperialdramon because his energy ran out, in his series the only time he became Magnamon resulted in him losing energy rather quickly
    • Dragon Knight: He's a Holy Knight, that is essentially a humanoid dragon wearing holy armor.
    • Golden Super Mode: a much more powerful variant of Veemon that wears some seriously spiffy golden armor.
    • Light 'em Up: Most of his attacks are light elemental based, and he is a Holy Knight
    • Lightning Bruiser: Very fast, and yet hits very hard.
  • Imperialdramon
  • Imperialdramon Fighter Mode
    • Adaptational Badass: Lets just say his depiction here is much kinder than in his own series. Here he levels the coup-de-grace, whereas in Zero Two he was lucky to reach a stalemate
  • BFG: The Giga Crusher, fires a massive Dark Matter blast. Also the Positron Laser, but it makes a much smaller explosion
  • Large and in Charge: Decidedly the largest of the main protagonists' Digimon by a massive margin.
    • Your Size May Vary: He's no where near this big in his original series. ( or rather, the other Digimon seem to have been made smaller by comparison)
  • Person of Mass Destruction: His Giga Crusher attack makes a really big bang, although most Ultimate and Mega level Digimon are this by default.

Ken Ichijouji

One of the Chosen Children of Digimon Adventure 02. He showed up in the final battle against Quartzmon to provide Davis with Stingmon to DNA Digivolve into Imperialdramon.

Voiced by: Romi Park

  • Canon Immigrant: To a bigger extent than nearly everyone else: He started in the Wonderswan games, before joining 02 proper.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: it should be noted that, next to what has already been addressed in Taichi's entry above, the animators gave him the kind of narrow, lightless eyes he sported during the Digimon Emperor arc (in contrast to the bigger eyes he had later on), yet the presence of Stingmon and the DNA Digivolution (and him helping out the others in general) clearly shows that this part of his story has been over for a while already.

Digimon Tamers

Takato Matsuki
The leader of the tamers in Digimon Tamers. He first showed up on a boat sailing through the DigiQuartz with other Digimon protagonists. Later, he showed up to battle against Quartzmon with Tai, Davis, Takuya, and Marcus.

His evolved and mode changed forms in this series are as follows:

  • Gallantmon, Guilmon's Mega form achieved by Takato Bio-Merging with him. An imposing white knight with a red cape.
  • Gallantmon Crimson Mode, a Mode Change granted by fusing with Grani. Gallantmon gains wings and a red-and-gold makeover.

Voiced by: Makoto Tsumura


Takato's Digimon partner. He was first seen on a boat with his partner, and later appeared to battle against Quartzmon's forces.

His digivolved and mode changed forms in this series are as follows:

  • Gallantmon, his Mega form, achieved by Bio-Merging with Takato. An imposing white knight with a red cape.
  • Gallantmon Crimson Mode, a Mode Change granted by fusing with Grani. Gallantmon gains wings and a red-and-gold makeover.

  • The Voiceless: Made glaringly obvious since Takato now speaks for Gallantmon, where before his voice couldn't be heard outside him.
Tropes associated with Guilmon's Digivolved or mode changed forms:
  • Gallantmon

A steed made for Takato's Gallantmon form. He appeared to battle against Quartzmon's forces and fused with Gallantmon to become Crimson Mode.

His fused forms in this series are as follows:

  • Gallantmon Crimson Mode, a Mode Change for Gallantmon granted by Grani fusing with him. Gallantmon gains wings and a red-and-gold makeover.

  • Back from the Dead: One possible explanation as to why he is alive and well in this series.

Digimon Frontier

Takuya Kanbara
The leader of the Legendary Chosen of Digimon Frontier. He first showed up on a boat sailing through the DigiQuartz with other Digimon protagonists. Later, he showed up to battle against Quartzmon with Tai, Davis, Takato, and Marcus.

His spirit evolved forms in this series are as follows:

  • Aldamon, his Advance Hybrid form. A demon man Digimon which combines his Agnimon and Vritramon forms.
  • Susanoomon, his Ancient Spirit evolved form. A celestial Digimon that is achieved through the uniting of all twenty of the spirits of the Legendary Warrior Ten.

Voiced by: Junko Takeuchi

  • The Cameo: Agunimon himself appears next to Takuya right before everyone is sent back to their respective universes.
  • Out of Focus: He gets less focus here than the other returning protagonists.
  • Worf Effect: He's the only returning protagonist that just doesn't really do anything. He failed to kill even a single MaloMyotismon and, when he took on the form of Susanoomon, all he really did was spear a VenomMyotismon.
    • That's because he only fired off one shot of what is supposed to be a Spam Attack. He also never uses his EmperorGreymon form.
Tropes associated with Takuya's Spirit Evolved forms:
  • Aldamon
    • Fire Balls: BRAHMASTRA!. Interestingly, this is supposed to be a spam attack sending out thousands of tiny fireballs, but he only shoots out one.
    • Fusion Dance: Of Agunimon and BurningGreymon.
    • Our Demons Are Different: A Demon Man Digimon, but certainly not evil in any way.
  • Susanoomon
    • Adaptational Wimp: Gets hit with this the hardest. Susanoomon in Frontier is very much a physical god, and more than capable of taking on planetary and even universal threats. Of the returning Digmon, he should probably be the strongest. Here, he doesn't really do anything more than hold down the enemy (although, in a bit of Fridge Brilliance, he could be avoiding using his powers as doing so might end up inadvertently cleaving the planet in two)
  • Fusion Dance: Of the Ten Legendary Warriors, and specifically of EmperorGreymon and MagnaGarurumon
  • Physical God: A God Man type Digimon, and based on the Japanese storm god Susano'o

Digimon Data Squad

Marcus Damon
An agent of DATS in Digimon Data Squad. First showed up on a boat sailing through the DigiQuartz with other Digimon protagonists. Later, he showed up along with Tai to battle a giant floating island with a face, saving Tagiru from being consumed by it in the process.

Voiced by: Soichiro Hoshi

  • Catchphrase: "That's how a man lives!"
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: It wouldn't be Marcus if he didn't do this. While the other protagonists either leave it to their partners or become Digimon in the case of Takato and Takuya, Marcus, as a human, leaps into the frey taking out his own fair share of Venomyotismon and Malomyotismon.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: Look at every other main character on this list and then look at Marcus, there is no need to explain why he is an aversion. Rather ironically, considering he's fighting Digimon head on without taking on a Digimon form, he probably needs it the most.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: Marcus retains the semi-realistic body shape that people in Savers had, albeit tweaked to the point where he doesn't look quite as buff as he did there and his facial design is in line with this series. This makes him look a lot taller than the semi-cartoonish characters of the previous and later series despite being in a similar age group. Then again, he is...

Masaru's Digimon partner, who calls him aniki (big bro). He was first seen on a boat with his partner, and later appeared to battle against a giant floating island with a face, saving Tagiru from being consumed by it in the process.

His digivolved forms in this series are as follows:

  • "Agumon Burst Mode", the Burst Mode form of Agumon. Basically Agumon surrounded by a dragon shaped flame, allowing him to fly.
  • ShineGreymon, his Mega level form. A winged knight-like dragon-themed warrior.
  • ShineGreymon Burst Mode, the Burst Mode form of ShineGreymon. Basically rhe same but recolored and has flaming wings, and a flaming shield and sword.

Voiced by: Taiki Matsuno

  • One Steve Limit: Averted. There are multiple Agumon of some importance in the Xros Wars canon - this one, Taichi's, and the three that comprise a DigiMemory.
Tropes associated with Agumon's Evolved or DigiXros forms:
  • ShineGreymon
  • Your Size May Vary: In Savers, ShineGreymon was so enormous that Marcus could stand on the palm of his hand. Here? Not so much - he's about as large as WarGreymon, maybe twice or three times Marcus's size.
  • "Agumon Burst Mode"
    • Power Gives You Wings: Discussed by the other Agumon, who seems rather envious of this Agumon's access to this.
