  • In the English dub, a Candlemon village leader invites the kids to "please, be our guest!"
    • At the time of the original airing, Disney owned Digimon's dubbing rights.
  • A lightsabre-wielding hero duels with a villain in black armour wielding a red sword, which is followed by a certain revelation regarding relatives...
  • Fairymon's Roseo Temporale and Tornado Gamba are rather obvious references to Chun-Li's Hyakuretsukyaku and Spinning Bird Kick, respectively.
  • Possibly Sorcerermon to Gandalf the White, considering that's he basically Wizardmon, but only in brighter, whiter clothes and has a cool staff. Considering like Gandalf that Wizardmon sacrificed himself to save his friends, and has links to angels, its only fitting.

  • In Izumi's Flashback in Episode 8, she is seen reading a book called "Prince of Star" which is the Japanese title of The Little Prince
  • ShadowWereGarurumon and Doggymon are based on Dick Dastardly and Muttley respectively. Doggymon even has the same laugh.
  • Panjyamonnote , the Perfect-level evolution of Leomon, has his name based on Panja, Leo's father from Kimba the White Lion.
  • Crusadermon resembles the Knight Sabers from Bubblegum Crisis, and his/her slicing ribbon attack comes directly from that.
  • Lucemon's overall design in his Rookie/Child form resembles Ryou Asuka AKA Satan from Devilman. Meanwhile his sadism and vicious fighting style in his next form along with his Japanese voice are a dead ringer for Freeza from Dragon Ball.
