Have it be that because the Digimon are digital representations of many of the same demons and gods from SMT that they are able to look and act different.
Hell, have it be that the capital G god from Digimon (portrayed a white silhouette) and Stephen from SMT actually be the same guy.
Here's something to consider - in Tamers, Digimon are said to be created from the thoughts of children.
What the hell type of kid dreams up the likes of Orochimon?
I dislike the epilogue for being too saccharine (there's a certain level of happy ending that it just winds up being too narmy & forced as in "Oh everything is just so perfect now, gold is raining from the sky & there's world peace & shit" prolly not helped by how the final boss was dealt with), I dislike the odd career choices, I dislike some of the pairings (I admit I shipped Tai & Sora even when I was a kid), I dislike how the cast look as adults (don't know if its a weakness of the art-style but they all look like generic adults), & gah clone children & even worse clone Digimon (how would you even tell them apart from your mon?)
Shipping was never a thing I cared about when watching Digimon as a kid but I disliked the epilogue for the same reasons. The fact these dumb as hell life choices are used to defeat Joke Myotismon only furthered the distaste.
Slimcoder and omega - fair enough on your reasons for disliking the epilogue. To be honest, I always kind of found if rather harmless. Some of the career choices made some kind of sense to me (Ken becoming a cop as he's The Atoner, Kari's friendly and motherly nature made her a good fit as a teacher and Cody's sense of right and wrong worked well as a lawyer). The rest I can just chalk up to people change over time.
One of the things that stuck out from Lost in Translationmon's episode on the 02 finale is that one of them pointed out that for all of their children to be the same age, all of the couples had to have been pregnant around the same time which I never really noticed before and now every time I think about the epilogue my mind wanders back to that discussion
You know what they: only true friends make a pact to get pregnant at around the same time
@Xadhoom Xado If it means anything, I wasn't aware this topic was a dead horse.
I will maintain it's only fair for Armadillomon to get a mega form that he doesn't share with Gomamon.
Hey maybe he can get Plesiomon

Still, given how Yamato/Matt was at Tri, the next year must have been crazy to make him interested in going to outer space.
@Demongodofchaos 2: Bagramons description easily makes him an Ecpy of SMT Lucifer too! Not the anime incarnation he's generically evil bad guy but his Manga version definitely.
Wait wait, if the children are all the same age then that could mean one thing.....
That the adults have orgies & that the children where conceived all at once in one big drunken bender.
Meanining the fathers for each of them are completely fucking random. Who knows which is which, itís like baby-daddy roulette.
Slimcoder basically encapsulated my thoughts on why the Adventure 02 epilogue is terrible. One funny thing I've always noticed though is its similarity to Harry Potters epilogue which I also happen to dislike for the very same reasons.

Kind of odd considering we already have Lucemon, whose Falldown Mode strongly resembles some incarnations of SMT Lucifer.
Lucemon is Paradise Lost Lucifer which is like, none of SMT Lucy except for I Vs where the book is even mentioned by a character.
But I Vs Lucifer is half of Satan to show how far off it is from the original.
Hell, the masked Angel designs from SMT are very similar to how the various versions of Angemon are masked and dressed rather skanitly clad by angel standards.
Hell, the original story that SMT was based on was called DIGITAL Devil Story.
I wonder if it was always meant to be closer to SMT than Pokemon (despite the name). For years, it was the darker of the two franchises and kinda still is, even with some of the lighter stories.

Its just that SMT hasnt really gotten all that popular out of Japan. Sure Persona is a success and its gotten out of the rut but still.
"Always" is a tricky word to use. Like, Digimon started out as a Tamagotchi-esque virtual pet. It's unlikely that anything SMT-like was planned at that point.
The character designs for the monsters were inspired by 90's western comics more then anything.
Its more recent stuff like the digimon story series that have become more SMT like.
Heh the SMT games are some dark shit right?
Well bring on the black & grime, I really want to see some really dark shit here.
Characters getting traumatized, mutilated, just general chaos & insanity.
It be fun as hell.

There's no shortage of that in Cyber Sleuth and Survive.
Well more I want more.
Give me darkness, feeeeeed meeeee. Make me a fucking Sith Lord or a Symbiote.
Iím hoping Survive lets us have a Skullgreymon moment & not make things better.

Well, survive is going to have multiple endings. I'm sure that might happen for one of them. Also . . .
We now know the names and the roles for two of the kids. The partner to Labramon is Aoi Shibuya. She is an older student who is in charge of cooking and security. The partner for Falcomon is Minoru Hyuga. He is a fellow classmates to the protagonist. He hates arguments, and has a calm personality but can make crazy decisions.
...can make crazy decisions...
I think I can identify based on my own experiences with these kinds of games who is going cause 60% to 85% of the bad endings.
So, how do you think an hypothetical Bancho Greymon would look like? Just thought back on Savers and it looked like something like that would fit Masaru better. What do you think?
Soo... For anyone who is curious, the Digimons who will be getting new X-Form designs will be revealed in a event that will take place in September 14.
I've heard some people compare Taiora to Zutara. Could the former be considered the spiritual predecessor to the latter?
How are they alike?
Mainly that they're ships with rabid fandoms that only became more rabid due to canon.

No. That's a very broad read, and one entirely reliant on fan reaction at that. You shouldn't need to stretch a trope nearly that far to force it to fit something.
We gotta a couple of new updates that seem interesting.
First off, Sistermon Ciel has a new design and profile. She now wields a sword instead of guns, as she was first seen using in sprite form for the 20th anniversary pendelums. She now roams the world, and reports back to Gakoomon. She is a data type that lives peacefully in the day, and becomes an assassin at night.
Second, Famitsu has revealed new info for Digimon Survive. The game is currently at 30% completion. It would would have three routes, with a bonus route being under consideration. There will be 100 playable Digimon with extras. They were chosen based on the world's atmosphere. A new Story game is being made, with Survive being released in the meantime, and they hope it becomes a third series. They hope to continue making Videogame original Digimon.
The link doesn't say it, but the interview in the article is actually an abbreviated form, and the full interview will be later released on Famitsu's website.
