Protagonists[edit]

DigiDestined[edit]

The DigiDestined (選ばれし子供達, Erabareshi Kodomotachi, Chosen Children) are a group of children and their partner Digimon who have been chosen to protect the Digital World from the forces of evil. Each child is given a device known as a "Digivice", which serves many purposes but is mostly used to allow their Digimon partners to Digivolve into stronger forms. Four years before the events of Digimon Adventure, Tai and his friends discover Greymon defeating Parrotmon in the town of Highton View Terrace, before they moved to Odaiba. They also witnessed by a group of figures who created the DigiDestined Digimon as part of a project to control the balance between good and evil in the Digital World, each Digimon linked to a Digivice and Crest, which are connected to the strongest trait of their respective child. However, when the facility is invaded, Gennai sends only seven Digi-Eggs to File Island, while the eighth one is at the Server Continent, along with the Crests.[1]

In 1999, Tai, Sora, Joe, T.K., Matt, Izzy and Mimi are transported from the human world to File Island, after receiving their Digivices. They meet their Digimon partners.[2] While searching for a way home, they learn of their significance in saving the Digital World, as they are led to Server to obtain the Crests to enable their Digimon to assume their ultimate level forms. But when the DigiDestined encounter Myotismon, learning time in the Digital World is faster than the human world, it caused a series of events that briefly allow the seven children to return to Tokyo, where they recruit Tai's sister Kari, and Gatomon who remembers her. This allows Agumon and Gabumon to achieve mega forms, making them effective against the Dark Masters and Apocalymon, after they practically destroyed the previous Digital World. With Apocalymon defeated and both worlds reverted to normal, the children leave their partners and return to their world. WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon merge themselves into Omnimon, in order to stop Diaboromon.[3]

In 2002, Tai and his friends attend high school, while T.K and Kari attend middle school. The two join up with a new group of DigiDestined in Digimon Adventure 02. Their Digivices are upgraded into D3s, along with Davis, Yolei, Cody and Ken. It also allows "armor Digivolve". The Black Rings and digivolution-negating Control Spires possess each Digimon, but they are free from their control. Ken's mistake was caused by Yukio Oikawa, and his sidekicks, Arukenimon and Mummymon, who plan to conquer the Digital World. The heroes use their new forms of Digivolution known as "DNA Digivolution" to merge their Champion-level Digimon into stronger ultimate forms, even ExVeemon and Stingmon merge themselves into Paildramon, then changing into Imperialdramon with Azulongmon's power.[4][5] During the final arc of the second series, the other DigiDestined members appear worldwide.[6] [7] [8] They later help the heroes defeat MaloMyotismon.[9]

In 2005, Tai and his friends begin to solve the case about the disappearance of Davis, Yolei, Cody and Ken. While the heroes protect Meiko Mochizuki, her partner, Meicoomon, turns hostile, revealing to be the source of the infection (which turns each Digimon as enemies) and as a threat to both worlds. Though their partners sacrifice themselves to prevent Meicoomon from entering the human world, Tai and his friends travel to the rebooted Digital World, in order to reunite with their partners, but they cannot remember them. King Drasil, a computer host, takes control of Homeostasis, and uses Meicoomon to try to destroy humanity and allow every Digimon to rule both worlds. When Gennai betrays them, Hackmon orders the heroes to destroy Meicoomon, which allows Homeostasis to delete Drasil. Throughout the series, Biyomon, Tentomon, Palmon and Gomamon achieve mega forms.

Tai Kamiya [edit]

Voiced by: Toshiko Fujita (TV), Natsuki Hanae (tri.) (Japanese); Joshua Seth[10], Jason Spisak (Movie 4) (English)

Tai Kamiya, known as Taichi Yagami (八神 太一, Yagami Taichi) in Japan, is the main protagonist of the series and the main leader of the DigiDestined. His aggressive and impulsive personality often put him in danger, and he eventually learnt that empathy and compassion are the keys to success rather than reckless courage,[11] but he remains willing to put his life on the line for all his friends at any time, particularly his sister Kari. Aside from his role as leader of the DigiDestined, Tai is also the star player on his school's soccer team[12] and at the time the kids enter the Digital World, he befriends Sora Takenouchi, another member of the DigiDestined.[13]

Tai and Kari receive a Digi-Egg, which transforms from Botamon to Greymon. He later defeats Parrotmon for invading Hikarigaoka (Highton View Terrace). [14] These events in turn would lead to them being chosen to become members of the DigiDestined. Four years later, Tai Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi, Joe and T.K. are transported to the Digital World, after receiving their Digivices.[2] There, Tai sees Agumon again and takes it upon himself to lead his friends on their journey for civilization. However, the group soon become separated, as Devimon divides File Island into separate fragments. During this time, Tai befriends Frigimon who takes him and Agumon to another part of the island where they meet Matt and Gabumon once again.[15] Afterwards, Tai, Matt, Agumon and Gabumon travel to the Primary Village where they are reunited with the rest of their group whilst protecting T.K. from Leomon who had been under the control of a Black Gear. Soon afterwards, Tai and the others learn about their role as the DigiDestined and subsequently defeat Devimon after T.K.'s partner digimon, Patamon Digivolves to Angemon.[16]

Tai and his friends are contacted by a man named Gennai, who instructs them on the next phase of their adventure.[17] After leaving File Island, Tai leads his allies to the Server Continent where he obtains the "Crest of Courage", during the group's initial confrontation with Etemon.[18] After becoming the first member of the DigiDestined to find their crest, Tai becomes arrogant and attempts to force Agumon to Digivolve into his ultimate form before he is ready, causing Agumon to Dark Digivolve into Skull Greymon.[19] Tai is left disheartened by this experience but Piximon restores his confidence by reminding him of how he learned to ride a bike. This allows Tai to face his own fear, activating his Crest and allowing Greymon to Digivolve into Metal Greymon and defeat Etemon.[20] However, Etemon's defeat causes a dimensional rift to open, which transports Tai and Metal Greymon back into the real world. Tai returns home to find that only minutes have passed in the real world since the children vanished from camp, and that his little sister Kari recognizes Koromon as a Digimon. When Tai and Kari discover every Digimon crossing over to the real world, with most of the general public oblivious to their presence, Tai decides to prevent a disaster for both worlds. Despite receiving a transmission from Izzy pleading him not to return, Tai and Agumon take the first portal they can find, and reappear at the site of Etemon's defeat.[21] The pair set off to find the other children, and learn their attempts to find Tai have left them scattered, and the schemes of Demidevimon have caused some to turn against each other.

After reuniting with his allies and reassembling their group, Tai and the others learn about Myotismon setting out to find the eighth DigiDestined child. They pursue Myotismon's army and the eighth DigiDestined child turns out to be Tai's sister Kari, and that her partner Digimon is Gatomon.[22] Although Myotismon is initially defeated by Angewomon,[23] he returns soon afterwards as VenomMyotismon. During this time, Gennai informs the DigiDestined of a prohecy which leads to Agumon and Gabumon Warp Digivolving into their mega forms, War Greymon and MetalGarurumon after Tai and Matt are shot with arrows of Light and Hope from Angewomon and Angemon respectively.[24] After defeating VenomMyotismon,[25] the heroes return to the Digital World, in order to defeat the Dark Masters[26] and Apocalymon. With their worlds restored, Tai and his friends leave the Digital World.[27]

In Digimon Adventure 02, Tai becomes more patient and mature and relinquishes his role as leader of the DigiDestined to Davis Motomiya and signifies this change by giving him his trademark goggles.[28] In the epilogue, Tai becomes a diplomat for both Earth and the Digital World at the United Nations.

During the events of Digimon Hurricane Landing!/Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals, edited out of Digimon: The Movie, Wendigomon captures Tai, Matt, Sora, Izzy, Mimi and Joe, but Davis and Willis defeat him.[29] Tai is also featured in supplementary audio dramas released on CD during the television series' run, most of which consist miscellaneous adventures with the other DigiDestined that do not relate to the overall plot of the show. These include a mystery adventure Tai and Sora go on[30] and tap dancing to distract Boltmon on Valentine's Day.[31] In an audio drama released years after the end of Digimon Adventure 02, which takes place between Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, Tai is heard talking to Agumon after a Digiport briefly opens.[32] Tai also appears in the third and final season of Digimon Fusion.

Tai was designed by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru. In an exclusive interview released with the Digimon Adventure DVD box on December 21, 2007, producer Satoru Nishizono revealed that as the staff decided on Tai's name using kanji that related to "luck."[33]

In a series of online polls conducted on Toei Animation's Digimon website, Tai was ranked 3rd by Japanese voters as their favorite DigiDestined.[34] When the same question was asked three more times, his rank fell to 6th,[35] rose to 4th,[36] and finally landed at 5th.[37]

Agumon[edit]

Agumon

Voiced by: Chika Sakamoto (Japanese); Michael Lindsay/Tom Fahn[38] (Agumon), MJ Lallo/Philece Sampler/Brianne Siddall (Koromon), Doug Erholtz (Koromon, SkullGreymon), Michael Lindsay/Kyle Hebert (Greymon), Joseph Pilato/Kyle Hebert (MetalGreymon), Lex Lang/Kyle Hebert (WarGreymon) (English), Peggy O'Neal (Botamon - Adventure Movie), Michael Sorich (Agumon - Adventure Movie), Bob Papenbrook (Greymon - Adventure Movie)

Agumon (アグモン) is Tai's Digimon partner, a reptile Digimon who is brave, relaxed, and funny while fighting by Tai's side. His signature attack is Pepper Breath (Baby Flame in Japanese version).

Agumon first appears as a Digi-Egg which comes out of the Kamiya's computer in the middle of the night. When the egg hatches into Botamon the following day, the Kamiya children, Taichi "Tai" Kamiya and Kari Kamiya, befriend him. After digivoling from Botamon, Koromon is able to speak now. Koromon constantly asks questions and eventually becomes friends with Tai and Kari. The following night, however, Koromon digivolves into Agumon and takes Kari for a ride. When Parrotmon hatches, Agumon digivolves into Greymon to battle him but comes close to losing. As Tai uses Kari's whistle, Greymon defeats Parrotmon, before they vanished.

When he and Tai meet again, Agumon assumed his current form to protect him from a Kuwagamon.[2] While he is more mellow than Tai in this form, Agumon will generally follow Tai's lead when it comes to impulsive actions. After their encounter with Kuwagamon, the DigiDestined and their Digimon are attacked by a Shellmon. As Agumon is the only one who has eaten, he is the only one with the strength to fight Shellmon but he is unable to defeat him in his current state. Tai tries to help Agumon by distracting Shellmon but he is caught. As Shellmon prepares to attack the others, Agumon Digivolves into his champion form, Greymon and manages to defeat Shellmon.[39] However, the group soon become separated as Devimon divides File Island into separate fragments. During this time, Agumon remains with Tai until they are reunited with the rest of their group. In their confrontation with Devimon, Agumon and his Digimon allies all Digivolve into their champion forms to fight him but they are all no match for him. However, T.K.'s Digimon partner, Patamon transforms into Angemon and he defeats Devimon.[16]

Tai and his friends travel to the Server Continent. After obtaining his "Crest of Courage" during the group's initial confrontation with Etemon,[18] Tai becomes arrogant and tries to force Agumon to Digivolve to the ultimate level, first by overfeeding him then by putting himself directly in harm's way. This causes Agumon to Dark Digivolve into SkullGreymon.[19] Although Tai is initially left disheartened by this experience, he is able to regain his confidence with Piximon's help, allowing him to overcome his fears and thus activate his "Crest of Courage", allowing Greymon to Digivolve into his Ultimate form, MetalGreymon and defeat Etemon.[40] However, Etemon's defeat causes a dimensional rift to open, which transports Metal Greymon and Tai back into the real world. Soon afterwards however, they return to the Digital World[21] to find their friends who by now, have split up to find Tai.

After reuniting with their allies, they return to the real world to stop Myotismon from finding and killing the eighth DigiDestined child. After attempting to rescue the citizens who have been trapped by Myotismon,[41] MetalGreymon and Tai reunite with their allies to confront the evil Digimon himself. After Gatomon Digivolves into Angewomon, Metal Greymon and the other DigiDestined Digimon lend their powers to her, allowing her to defeat Myotismon with her "Celestial Arrow" attack.[23] However, Myotismon returns soon afterwards as VenomMyotismon. During this time, Gennai informs the DigiDestined of a prophecy which leads to Agumon and Gabumon Warp Digivolving into their Mega forms, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon after Tai and Matt are shot with arrows of Hope and Light from Angemon and Angewomon respectively.[24] Together with help from the remaining DigiDestined, they are able to defeat VenomMyotismon[25] but are forced to return to the Digital World straight afterwards to do battle against The Dark Masters.

Upon their return to the Digital World, they are confronted by the Dark Masters: MetalSeadramon, Puppetmon, Machinedramon and Piedmon. WarGreymon and his allies are easily defeated and only escape because of Piximon's sacrifice.[42] A short while later, Izzy discovers that WarGreymon is equipped with "Dramon Destroyers", which are particularly effective against Digimon with "Dramon" in their name. WarGreymon is initially overpowered by MetalSeadramon and almost defeated[43] but Whamon intervenes, sacrificing his life in the process and allowing War Greymon to defeat MetalSeadramon.[44] However, a heated argument between Tai and Matt erupts soon afterwards, causing the DigiDestined to disband temporarily.[1] Whilst separated, Tai's younger sister Kari becomes ill, prompting him to go in search of a cure and causing him to unknowingly walk into Machinedramon's domain.[45] Although Koromon is initially too weak to fight, he is empowered by Kari's "Crest of Light", allowing him to Digivolve to War Greymon and defeat Machinedramon.[46] Shortly afterwards, the DigiDestined reunite to confront Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters but WarGreymon and most of his allies are turned into key chains. They are eventually saved by MagnaAngemon and defeat Piedmon with the help of their allies.[47]

After Piedmon's defeat however, Gennai warns the DigiDestined about an ancient evil which has now resurfaced. Apocalymon appears and overwhelms the DigiDestined by using the attacks of the evil Digimon they have defeated against them before destroying their tags and crests and deleting them. Agumon and Tai encourage their allies not to give up, leading them all to discover that the power of their crests has been present within each and everyone one of them this entire time. With their powers restored, Agumon and his Digimon allies all Digivolve to their strongest forms and confront Apocalymon once again.[48] When they destroy Apocalymon's body, he makes one last attempt to destroy both the real world and the Digital World, but he fails as the force of the attack is contained by the DigiDestined's Digivices. Agumon and the other DigiDestined are forced to part ways with their partners, as the portal closes between the real world and the Digital World, before Tai and his friends return home.[49]

Matt Ishida[edit]

Voiced by: Yūto Kazama (TV), Yoshimasa Hosoya (tri.) (Japanese); Michael Reisz (English)[52], Vic Mignogna (tri.)

Matt Ishida, known as Yamato Ishida (石田 ヤマト, Ishida Yamato) in Japan, is one of the members for the DigiDestined and Tai's friends. Matt lives in Odaiba, after his parents were divorce.[13] This leads to an awkward relationship between his mother and himself, as he feels that they treat each other more as strangers instead of family, as well as pressures him to prioritize T.K.'s safety.[53] In the English version, there was a dub error where Matt indicates that they are half-brothers when in fact they were full brothers.[54]

Matt is regarded as "cool" by his peers and is seen as a "born rebel" who "prefers to do things his own way".[55] However, he can be passionate and emotional as well and behind his façade, lies an "introspective, sensitive side" that comes mostly through his younger brother T.K, whom he is fiercely protective of.[56] He takes caution in the Digital World and often clashes with Tai Kamiya because of the leader's recklessness.[13] Matt plays a harmonica.

When Matt becomes separated from the rest of his group after Devimon divides File Island into separate fragments, Matt and Gabumon reunite with Tai and Agumon.[15] They eventually reunite with the rest of their group at The Primary Village after protecting T.K. from Leomon who had been under the control of a Black Gear at the time. Soon afterwards, Matt and the others learn about their role as the DigiDestined and subsequently defeat Devimon after T.K.'s partner Digimon, Patamon Digivolves to Angemon.[16]

The heroes are contacted by a man named Gennai who instructs them on the next phase of their adventure.[17] When a Kuwagamon attacks the DigiDestined, Piximon appears and saves them. Whilst training with him, Matt finds his "Crest of Friendship".[57] When Tai and Agumon are transported back to the real world after Etemon's defeat, Matt and the other DigiDestined split up to find him. Matt stays with his younger brother T.K. and Patamon and they eventually come across an abandoned theme park. Matt decides to ride a swan shaped boat around the nearby lake and promises T.K. that he will be back in a few hours[58] but he and Gabumon become lost and eventually wind up at a restaurant where they find Joe working off his debt. Matt elects to stay with Joe and help him work off his debt but becomes increasingly frustrated with him when he continually causes accidents which force them to continue working. Some time later, Tai arrives at the restaurant along with Agumon, T.K. and Patamon and suggests that they all leave together but Matt refuses to go anywhere with Joe, accusing him of doing everything wrong on purpose. Digitamamon and DemiDevimon then attack the group and T.K. is captured by Vegiemon but Joe intervenes and saves him, only to be captured himself. Matt is touched by Joe's willingness to help T.K, despite his treatment of him, activating his "Crest of Friendship" and allowing Garurumon to Digivolve into Weregarurumon who then defeats Digitamamon and scares away Vegiemon. After the battle, the boys decide to split up into groups (with Matt staying with T.K.) to follow separate readings on their Digivices in the hopes that it will lead them to their friends.[59]

After reuniting with his allies and reassembling their group, Matt and the others learn of Myotismon's scheme to enter the real world to find and kill the eighth DigiDestined child. They all pursue Myotismon and his forces and eventually discover that the eighth DigiDestined child is in fact Tai's younger sister Kari and that her partner Digimon is Gatomon.[22] Although Myotismon is initially defeated by Angewomon,[23] he returns soon afterwards as VenomMyotismon. During this time, Gennai informs the DigiDestined of a prohecy which leads to Gabumon and Agumon warp digivolving into their mega forms, Metal Garurumon and WarGreymon after Matt and Tai are shot with arrows of Hope and Light from Angemon and Angewomon respectively.[24] Together with help from the remaining DigiDestined, they are able to defeat VenomMyotismon[25] but are forced to return to the Digital World straight afterwards to do battle against The Dark Masters.[26] It is during this time that Cherrymon (a Digimon working for Puppetmon) tricks Matt into thinking that he doesn't have any friends and that Tai is his rival.[60] This leads to a heated argument between the two and a confrontation between their Digimon which culminates in Matt's departure from the group and the temporary disbandment of the DigiDestined.[1] However, Matt and Metal Garurumon would briefly reunite with the others to aid them in defeating Puppetmon.[61] After Puppetmon's defeat, Matt falls into a state of depression but with Gabumon's continued companionship, he is able to overcome this. They reunite with Joe and Gomamon soon afterwards and help Sora to overcome her doubts as well.[62] They along with their allies, eventually defeat Piedmon,[63] the last of the Dark Masters and later, Apocalymon as well. After Apocalymon's defeat, Matt and his friends are forced to leave the Digital World as it begins its restoration.[27]

In the sequel, Digimon Adventure 02, Matt becomes more mature and easy-going. He forms a band with three other classmates called the Teen-age Wolves (stylized TEEN-AGE WOLVES) and serves as their lead vocalist and bassist.[64] He makes fewer appearances as he relinquishushes most of his responsibilities to Davis Motomiya, the leader of the new generation of DigiDestined but provides assistance and guidance when needed.[28] In Digimon Adventure tri., Matt becomes a lead singer of a new band, Knife of Day, after the Teen-age Wolves disbanded. In the series epilogue for Digimon Adventure 02, Matt becomes an astronaut arriving on Mars.

Matt was designed for the pilot film storyboard by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru. In an exclusive interview released with the Digimon Adventure DVD box on December 21, 2007, producer Satoru Nishizono revealed that as the staff had agreed on deciding Tai's name, he had tried to name the other characters similarly with kanji that related to "luck".[33] Jeff Nimoy, co-screenwriter of the English version of Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, noted that if there were anything he could change about Matt, it would be making him "less indecisive", citing his complication of adapting the script of the scene where Matt confronts his feelings in a cave with Gabumon.[65]

Matt is one of the most popular characters in the Digimon Adventure series. In a series of online polls conducted on Toei Animation's Digimon website, Matt was ranked 1st by Japanese voters as their favorite DigiDestined.[34] When the same question was asked three more times, his rank remained at 1st[35][36] but fell to 2nd,[37] losing to Kari. In addition to this, Matt is ranked 1st as the DigiDestined voters would want to switch places with,[66] whom the voters would want as a brother,[67] as the best-looking DigiDestined in the winter,[68] and whom the voters would want as their boyfriend.[69] He placed 2nd as the DigiDestined who voters related the most to,[70] as the best-looking DigiDestined in the summer,[71] and as the best-looking DigiDestined in the autumn,[72] and as the DigiDestined who voters thought was the strongest.[73] In addition to this, Matt's harmonica ranked 1st for the individual item of the DigiDestined that the voters would want.[74]

Gabumon[edit]

Voiced by: Mayumi Yamaguchi (Japanese); Kirk Thornton (English)

Gabumon (ガブモン) is a reptile Digimon wearing a wolf-pelt who is very loyal to Matt, giving him free rein to find himself but trying to reason with him whenever Matt falls too far. His signature attack is Blue Blaster (Petit Fire in Japanese version). Originally Tsunomon when he and Matt met, Gabumon assumed his current form to protect him from a Kuwagamon.[2] Gabumon's utter devotion to help Matt on his journey of self-discovery led to him going against the rest of the DigiDestined. He later saves Matt from going down the spiral of self-destruction.

Whilst camping one night in the Digital World, the DigiDestined are attacked by a Seadramon so Matt and Gabumon jump into the water to distract him but he grabs Matt instead, prompting Gabumon to Digivolve into his champion form, Garurumon to protect him. Shortly afterwards, the group become separated as Devimon divides File Island into separate fragments. During this time, Gabumon remains with Matt until they are reunited with the rest of their group. In their confrontation with Devimon, Gabumon and his Digimon allies all Digivolve into their Champion forms to fight him but they are all no match for him. However, T.K.'s digimon partner, Patamon transforms into Angemon and he defeats Devimon.[16]

The heroes travel to the Server Continent. A short while later, Matt finds his "Crest of Friendship", whilst he and the other DigiDestined are being trained by Piximon.[75] After Etemon's defeat, Gabumon and the other DigiDestined split up to look for Tai and Agumon who have been transported back to the real world.[21] Gabumon remains with Matt during this time and they eventually come across a restaurant where Joe is working for Digitamamon to work off his debt. Soon afterwards, they are attacked by Digitamamon along with DemiDevimon and Vegiemon but Matt manages to invoke the power of his crest, allowing Garurumon to Digivolve into his ultimate form, Weregarurumon and defeat Digitamamon.[59] After reuniting with their allies, they all return to the real world to stop Myotismon from finding and killing the eighth DigiDestined child.

After Gatomon Digivolves into Angewomon, WereGarurumon and the other DigiDestined digimon lend their powers to her, allowing her to defeat Myotismon with her "Celestial Arrow" attack.[23] However, Myotismon returns soon afterwards as VenomMyotismon. During this time, Gennai informs the DigiDestined of a prophecy which leads to Gabumon and Agumon warp digivolving into their mega forms, Metal Garurumon and WarGreymon after Matt and Tai are shot with arrows of Hope and Light from Angemon and Angewomon respectively.[24] Together with help from the remaining DigiDestined, they are able to defeat VenomMyotismon[25] but are forced to return to the Digital World straight afterwards to battle against The Dark Masters.

Upon their return to the Digital World, they are confronted by the Dark Masters: MetalSeadramon, Puppetmon, Machinedramon and Piedmon. Metal Garurumon and his allies are easily defeated and only escape because of Piximon's sacrifice.[42] A hearted argument between Matt and Tai erupts soon afterwards, causing the DigiDestined to disband temporarily.[1] However, Matt and Metal Garurumon would briefly reunite with the others to aid them in defeating Puppetmon.[61] After Puppetmon's defeat, Matt falls into a state of depression but with Gabumon's continued companionship, he is able to overcome this. They reunite with Joe and Gomamon soon afterwards and help Sora to overcome her doubts as well.[62] A short while later, they reunite with the other DigiDestined to confront Piedmon, the last of the Dark Masters but Metal Garurumon and most of the other DigiDestined are turned into key chains. They are eventually saved by MagnaAngemon and defeat Piedmon with the help of their allies.[47]

After Piedmon's defeat however, Gennai warns the DigiDestined about an ancient evil which has now resurfaced. Apocalymon appears and overwhelms the DigiDestined by using the attacks of the evil Digimon they have defeated against them before destroying their tags and crests and deleting them. During this time, the DigiDestined discover that the power of their crests has been present within each and everyone one of them this entire time. With their powers restored, Gabumon and his Digimon allies all Digivolve to their strongest forms and confront Apocalymon once again.[48] With help from the other DigiDestined, Metal Garurumon and WarGreymon successfully destroy Apocalymon's body but he makes one last attempt to destroy both the real world and the Digital World with his "Total Annihilation" attack but he fails as the force of the attack is contained by the DigiDestined's Digivices. After Apocalymon's defeat, Gabumon and the other DigiDestined are forced to part ways with their partners as the gate between the real world and Digital World closes, which would prevent Matt and his friends from getting back home.[49]

Voiced by: Yūko Mizutani (TV), Suzuko Mimori (tri.) (Japanese); Colleen O'Shaughnessey (English)[13]

Sora Takenouchi (武之内 空, Takenouchi Sora) is a female member of the DigiDestined. Despite being somewhat of a tomboy, she takes caution in the Digital World due to Tai's recklessness and serves as the mother figure of the DigiDestined.[76] [13] She is also a member for the soccer team along with Izzy.[53]

When Devimon separates Sora from her friends, she and Biyomon manage to reunite with them and save Leomon at Primary Village. At Infinity Mountain, her power allows Patamon to transform into Angemon and he defeats Devimon.[16]

The heroes meet a man named Gennai, who instructs them to obtain all tags and crests.[17] After leaving File Island, they travel to the Server Continent, where Izzy receives a message from a Digimon, claiming to know where the last crest is found. Motivated by this, the members set off to free the imprisoned Digimon, Datamon, but as they are trying to free him, Etemon attacks them. As the others fend Etemon off, Datamon kidnaps Sora and Biyomon.[77] Datamon makes a copy of Sora, while taking revenge against Etemon and stealing the Digivice and Crest. However, Tai rescues Sora and Biyomon, and they escape.[40] As Tai and Agumon seemingly defeat Etemon, the two are transported back to the real world, prompting Sora and the other members to split up. During this time, Sora remained hidden and helped her allies foil DemiDevimon's plan. Sora stops Tai and T.K. from eating amnesiac mushrooms,[78] allows Matt and Joe to keep working at Digitamamon's restaurant,[59] and saves Mimi from the nightmare.[79] After Sora reunites with her allies, they confront DemiDevimon and Myotismon. Sora activates the "Crest of Love", allowing Biyomon to transform into Birdramon and then Garudamon.[80]

While protecting Kari and Gatomon from Myotismon's army, Sora, Mimi and Palmon are captured by a horde of Bakemon, led by Phantomon. They are attacked by a DarkTyrannomon, but Palmon transforms into Lilymon and stops him.[41] Birdramon rescues Lilymon and Sora.[81] They eventually reunite with their allies and aid Angewomon in defeating Myotismon,[23] before defeating him a second time as VenomMyotismon.[25] The united DigiDestined members return to the Digital World, where they meet the Dark Masters.[26] Though Sora begins to doubt herself, she and Biyomon are trapped in a dark cave, like Matt and Gabumon. However, Matt and Joe rescue Sora, and they end up leaving the cave.[62] After the reunited heroes defeat Piedmon[63] and Apocalymon, the members leave the Digital World.[27]

In Digimon Adventure 02, Sora becomes a tennis player. She passes her responsibility to Yolei Inoue, but provides assistance and guidance when needed. During the events of Digimon Hurricane Landing!/Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals (edited for Digimon: The Movie), it is revealed that Davis and Willis rescue Sora from Wendigomon.[28] In Digimon Hurricane Landing!/Supreme Evolution! The Golden Digimentals being heavily cut when the film was localized for Digimon: The Movie, the subplot was removed for the English sub.[29] Sora appears in supplementary audio dramas released on CD during the television series' run, most of which consist of miscellaneous adventures with the other DigiDestined that do not relate to the overall plot of the show. She also appears in her own radio show.[30] In an audio drama released years after the end of Digimon Adventure 02, which takes place between Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, Sora is heard with her mother and learning how to play tennis.[82] In Digimon Adventure tri., Sora manages to help Biyomon remember her, after the reboot is initiated. After saving Meiko Mochizuki, Sora and Biyomon help the heroes defeat Machinedramon, MetalSeadramon and Meiccomon.

Sora was designed for the pilot film storyboard by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru. In an exclusive interview released with the Digimon Adventure DVD box on December 21, 2007, producer Satoru Nishizono revealed that as the staff had agreed on deciding Tai's name, he had tried to name the other characters similarly with kanji that related to "luck."[33] In a series of online polls conducted on Toei Animation's Digimon website, Sora was ranked 5th by Japanese voters as Favorite DigiDestined.[34] When the same question was asked two more times, her rank remained at 5th[36] but fell to 8th.[37] In addition to this, Sora is ranked 1st as whom the voters would want as an older sister[67] and as the best-looking DigiDestined in the summer.[71]

Izzy Izumi, known as Koshiro Izumi (泉 光子郎, Izumi Kōshirō) in Japan is one of the members for the DigiDestined. A child prodigy with a very high IQ and a computer expert. He lives with his adoptive parents, with his adoptive father being the last surviving relative of his real father. When he initially found out that he was adopted, he began to subconsciously distance himself from his parents, focusing more on his computer instead. This issue was resolved once his parents came forward with the truth and he accepted them as his true parents.[84]

After finding the active data in the Digital World, Izzy uses the computer program for Tentomon to transform into Kabuterimon. He destroys the black gear to free Andromon from Devimon's control.[85] Devimon seperates Izzy from the group, but Izzy reunites with the rest of their group at Primary Village to save T.K. and Leomon. Later, Izzy's power allows Patamon to transform into Angemon and he defeats Devimon.[16]

The members are contacted by a man named Gennai , who instructs them on the next phase of their adventure.[17] When a Kuwagamon attacks the DigiDestined, Piximon appears and saves them. Whilst training with him, Izzy finds his "Crest of Knowledge".[57] A short while later, Izzy receives a message from a Digimon in danger, claiming to know where the last crest can be found. Motivated by this, the DigiDestined set off to free the imprisoned Digimon, Datamon but as they are trying to free him, Etemon attacks them. As they try to fend him off, Datamon escapes, taking Sora and Biyomon along with him.[77] Izzy is quick to point out that Sora may still be located somewhere in the pyramid, which ultimately leads to Tai rescuing her.[40] After Etemon's defeat, Tai and Agumon are transported back to the real world, prompting Izzy and the other DigiDestined to split up and find him. During this time, Izzy and Tentomon end up in Vademon's dimension and Izzy is tricked into giving up his curiosity, causing his mind to become an accepting one that does not question anything. Tentomon tries but fails to snap Izzy out of it and slowly regresses until he reverts to his weakest form, Pabumon. This brings Izzy back to his senses, allowing Pabumon to transform into MegaKabuterimon and in order to destroy Vademon.[86]

After reuniting with his allies and reassembling their group, Izzy returns to the human world to save Kari from Myotismon.[23] Izzy remembers the day he was adopted and reveals that he had heard them talking about it one night and that he had tried to forget about what he had heard by focusing on computers. Izzy's parents assure him that they love him and Izzy accepts them as his parents. After the heroes defeat VenomMyotismon,[25] they return to the Digital World, where they meet the Dark Masters.[26] Shortly after returning, Izzy discovers that WarGreymon is equipped with "Dramon Destroyers", which are particularly effective against Digimon with "Dramon" in their name. This subsequently leads to the defeats of MetalSeadramon[87] and Machinedramon[88] at the hands of WarGreymon. After reuniting with his allies, they defeat Piedmon and Apocalymon.[63] The members leave the Digital World.[27]

Back in the human world, Izzy discovers a computer virus Digimon invading the internet and turning out to be Diaboromon. On the internet, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon merge themselves into Omnimon. Izzy manages to stop everyone from sending many e-mails on the computer, in order to slow Diaboromon down. This allows Omnimon to stop Diaboromon.[3]

In Digimon Adventure 02, Izzy makes fewer appearances as he relinquishes most of his responsibilities to Cody Hida. However, he continues to aid the new generation of DigiDestined by using his computing expertise to monitor the Digital World and alert them about any problems. With Willis' help, Izzy discovers that the new Digivices given to the new generation of DigiDestined have three functions and subsequently dubs them D3's. As the new DigiDestined battle against the Digimon Emperor, Izzy devises a plan to invade his base by using Cody's information on pipelines that cross with the Emperor's base. In Digimon Adventure tri., Izzy makes use of his expertise to start-up new companies in the IT business and refits his office as a base of operations once the DigiDestined reunite, creating a program that allows their Digimon to instantly travel back and forth between the monitors there and every display in the city.

Joe's father had hoped that both boys would become doctors, a tradition which had existed since the Edo period. Joe is the bearer of the Crest of Reliability (Faithfulness/Sincerity/Integrity in Japan).[95]

While the heroes investigate File Island, Joe begins to feel more responsible for the group's safety as he is the eldest, but his tendency to panic means the group looks to Tai, Matt and Sora when making choices. After Joe recruits Gomamon, they climb through the mountain, where they are ambushed by Unimon (who is possessed by a black gear). When Joe distracts Unimon, Gomamon transforms into Ikkakukmon and destroys the gear, saving Unimon.[96] Devimon seperates Joe and Gomamon from their group.

T.K. Takaishi, known as Takeru Takaishi (高石 タケル, Takaishi Takeru) in Japan, is a member of both the season one DigiDestined and the 02 group of DigiDestined. He is gentle, sweet-natured, and generous.[103] He is also obedient and follows the DigiDestined's lead without complaints. He also happens to be Matt Ishida's younger brother, though the English dub made an error that they are half-brothers.[104] He is also described as Kari Kamiya's "equal".[105]

Unlike the other DigiDestined, T.K. originally left Sangenjaya instead of Odaiba with his mother, journalist Nancy Takaishi, due to a divorce between her and his father who Matt lives with.[12] Despite not fully remembering it, T.K. is still affected by it and does not openly talk about it.[53] At the start of the series, T.K looks up to Matt and attempts to be brave to "impress" him,[11] before he eventually open up to the other DigiDestined as well, particularly Tai.[13] While separated from the others after Devimon divides File Island into fragments, T.K. and Patamon ended up at the Primary Village, a place where Digimon are born. After meeting and befriending Elecmon,[106] they are attacked by Leomon (who is under the control of black gears), forcing them to run and hide but they are found by Ogremon. However, the other DigiDestined appear and save them by freeing Leomon from the black gears' control and forcing Ogremon to retreat.

During the final fight with Devimon soon after though he hid the trauma from the experience, T.K. was forced to watch Patamon Digivolve to Angemon and sacrifice himself to destroy Devimon. But T.K's sadness is eased when Angemon's data reformatted into a Digi-Egg and the child eventually finds his Crest of Hope while Patamon matures to usual form overtime.[16][58][77] Found by Tai and Agumon after they revealed from the real world, after nearly being poisoned by DemiDevimon before Patamon drives him away, T.K. helps in finding Matt, Gabumon, Joe and Gomamon after the four end up in debt to Digitamamon. After the chaos that followed, T.K. accompanies Matt as they eventually find Izzy.[107] After reuniting with his allies and reassembling their group, T.K. and the others follow Myotismon back to the real world after learning of his scheme to find and kill the eighth DigiDestined child.

While he and Matt search for the Eighth Child around the Shibuya district, T.K. attempts to look for Patamon after a misunderstanding before he and his brother run into Pumpkinmon and Gotsumon and end up witnessing their deaths by Myotismon when they refuse to harm the humans.[108] The following day, reaching Odaiba with Joe's help, T.K. reunites with the other DigiDestined to aid in defeating Myotismon[23] before defeating him a second time after he returns as VenomMyotismon.[25] After VenomMyotismon's defeat, T.K. and the other DigiDestined are forced to return to the Digital World to do battle against The Dark Masters.[26]

When the DigiDestined encounter Puppetmon, separated from Patamon, T.K. agrees to play a deadly game of hide and go seek with him to save Matt's life. Luckily, proving himself to be capable on his own, T.K. manages to outwit Puppetmon and destroys a number of devices that the Dark Master used to control the forest before escaping and reuniting with the rest of his group.[87] This event causes Matt to leave the group, as he comes to realize his little brother no longer needs his protection, and becomes uncertain of his place in the group. After Matt and Tai come to blows, and the DigiDestined learn how they were chosen, Matt leaves again, but chooses to have T.K. with Tai. T.K. subsequently leads the group to Puppetmon's mansion, and the battle that follows leads to Puppetmon being destroyed.

T.K. begins to show greater responsibility in the fight against Machinedramon, protecting Kari on Tai's instruction even after they are thrown into the sewers. He assists in the liberation of the Numemon from Warumonzaemon, and witnesses their sacrifice that gives Kari the mysterious energy to have WarGreymon destroy Machinedramon. In the final battle against Piedmon, T.K. is sent with Sora to find Matt and the others, although it is Sora who needs rescuing from her pit, with the help of Joe and Matt. When they return to the peak of Spiral Mountain, T.K. is left as Kari's protector with Patamon when Piedmon turns the children into key-chains. As Piedmon throws them to their deaths, T.K's refusal to give up hope results in Angemon digivolving to MagnaAngemon who rescues the other children and destroys Piedmon. T.K. joins the final battle against Apocalymon, and vows to meet Patamon again when he is forced to return home.

In the sequel, Digimon Adventure 02, T.K. and his mother relocate to a new apartment building in Odaiba, where he becomes neighbors with Cody Hida and Yolei Inoue, two new members of the new generation of DigiDestined. Although much of his physical appearance has changed, particularly his height, his gentle personality has remained.[109] T.K. is also featured in supplementary audio dramas released on CD during the television series' run, most of which consist miscellaneous adventures with the other DigiDestined that do not relate to the overall plot of the show.

Voiced by: Kae Araki (TV), M.A.O (tri.) (Japanese); Lara Jill Miller, Tara Sands (tri.) (English)

Kari Kamiya, known as Hikari Yagami (八神 ヒカリ, Yagami Hikari) in Japan, is Tai's younger sister and a member of both the season one DigiDestined and new generation of DigiDestined. She did not attend summer camp with the other members of the season one DigiDestined due to poor health. She is characterised as a compassionate girl who always puts others before herself.[111][112] Revealed to be "the eighth DigiDestined child" (八番目の選ばれし子供, Hachi-banme no erabareshi kodomo) Kari admires Tai and is seen as an equal to T.K.[105] While fighting Puppetmon, Kari was briefly possessed by a god-like digital entity that revealed the truth behind the DigiDestined. That entity was later revealed in Digimon Adventure tri. to be a sentient program known as Homeostasis (ホメオスタシス), whose purpose is the stabilization of the human and Digital Worlds.

In the sequel, Digimon Adventure 02, Kari has matured into a "smiling, charmingly energetic, and bright girl", but has also become "mischievous" and "playful". She now dons a digital camera as a trademark item instead of her camp whistle, which she gave to Gatomon at the end of the first season.[113] Joining the new DigiDestined, Kari obtained the Digi-egg of Light (光のデジメンタル, Hikari no dejimentaru). Davis Motomiya develops an unrequited crush on her and vies for her affections several times.[114]

In an exclusive interview released with the Digimon Adventure DVD box on December 21, 2007, producer Satoru Nishizono revealed that Kari's Japanese name referenced the Japanese word for "light" (, "hikari") and was not supposed to appear as the eighth DigiDestined.

During this time, Gatomon befriends Wizardmon. Myotismon's army arrive at the Real World, where Gatomon meets Kari. Wizardmon helps Gatomon remember her memories and identify Kari as the "Eighth Child". After Tai and his friends recruit Gatomon and Kari, they defeat Myotismon, the Dark Masters and Apocalymon.

Gatomon returned as a main character in Digimon Adventure 02. She loses her tail ring (destroyed by the Digimon Emperor) and her power greatly reduced to roughly a Rookie level Digimon. In the last episode of the series, Gennai restores the ring for Gatomon.

Voiced by: Ryūzaburō Ōtomo, Toshiyuki Morikawa (02) (Japanese); Richard Epcar (English)

Myotismon (ヴァンデモン, Vandemon, Vamdemon) is the most recurring antagonist in the series, an undead Digimon modeled after a vampire with a cruel and sadistic streak in his personality. Like a real vampire he has some vampiric powers similar to Count Dracula even in the human world like controlling the weather and sucking blood of human women, which he does when he gets to the real world. Among his actions prior to meeting the DigiDestined, Myotismon was the one responsible for conditioning Gatomon into a loyal minion. Having DemiDevimon keep the DigiDestined separate, Myotismon prepares to enter the real world to find and kill the Eighth Child whom would lead to his defeat. However, the DigiDestined follow him, and from August 1 to August 2, they race against his forces find the child. But once learning of Gatomon's relation to the Eighth Child, Myotismon isolates Odaiba from the rest of Tokyo to narrow his search. But once Kari reveals herself, a chain of events occur with Myotismon seemingly killed by Angewomon. However, Myotismon is not truly defeated as a prophecy found by Gennai came true with the evil Digimon resurrecting into the dark beast-type Digimon VenomMyotismon (ヴェノムヴァンデモン, VenomuVandemon, VenomVamdemon). In the end, it took Agumon and Gabumon as WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon and the powers and crests of the DigiDestined Digimon group to destroy his body, but Myotismon's essence survives and he enters a host, Yukio Oikawa, after tricking him with the promise of entering the Digital World.

After years of scheming and subconsciously directing Oikawa into creating an elaborate plan to ensure his return to power, Myotismon reveals himself after having Oikawa take himself and the Dark Spore-possessed children to the World of Dreams. There, Myotismon leaves Oikawa's body while he absorbs the bloomed Dark Flowers to become the Dark Lord-type Digimon MaloMyotismon (ヴェノムヴァンデモン, BeriaruVandemon, BelialVamdemon). After killing Arukenimon and Mummymon, he attempts to place the children in delusions without interference. MaloMyotismon battles the new DigiDestined in the Digital World, but Imperialdramon defeats him.

DemiDevimon[edit]

DemiDevimon
Voiced by: Kōki Miyata (Japanese); Derek Stephen Prince (English)

DemiDevimon (ピコデビモン, Pikodebimon, PicoDevimon) is a spiteful bat-like Digimon who is a constant liar and whose great wording skills allow him to fool almost anyone with his sweet-sounding lies. DemiDevimon works as Myotismon's direct subordinate, and is sent to break up the DigiDestined from reuniting and to prevent their Crests' powers from activating. Not one for combat, he commonly resorts to lying and manipulation to have his way. He has a rivalry with Gatomon. DemiDevimon accompanies Myotismon to Tokyo where they search for the Eighth Child. DemiDevimon escapes Myotismon's initial defeat but oversees the prophecy that leads to his resurrection as VenomMyotismon, who then devours DemiDevimon as a "snack".

Dark Masters[edit]

The Dark Masters are a group that consists of four powerful Mega-level Digimon who took advantage of the DigiDestined returning to their world to conquer the Digital World and convert it into Spiral Mountain, which is divided by four territories. As revealed in fourth film of Digimon Adventure tri., the Dark Masters existed during the adventure of the previous DigiDestined preceding Tai's group and were defeated when Tapirmon sacrificed himself to enable the other DigiDestined Digimon to digivolve into the Digimon Sovereigns and defeat them. The Adventure 02 series also reveals that the Dark Masters exact their revenge and sealed the Digimon Sovereigns from the Digital World prior to the DigiDestineds' return. As the DigiDestined learn, the defeat of each Dark Master causes their domain to cease and be eventually reconstituted into the recreated Digital World.

MetalSeadramon (メタルシードラモン, MetaruShidoramon)
Voiced by: Yuuto Kazama (Japanese); Doug Erholtz (English)
The first of the Dark Masters, MetalSeadramon rules over the Net Ocean, appearing as a large sea serpent covered in golden armour. Very arrogant and egotistical, MetalSeadramon is the first to engage the DigiDestined, using his army of Divermon to search the entire ocean for them. He does not kill his minions for entertainment like the other Dark Masters, but will execute them if they fail him, as he does with the clam-obsessed Scorpiomon. MetalSeadramon mortally wounds Whamon, prompting WarGreymon to drill through his body, killing him instantly. In Digimon Adventure tri., a reboot version of MetalSeadramon is defeated by Agumon, Gabumon and Gatomon.
Puppetmon (ピノッキモン, Pinokimon)
Voiced by: Etsuko Kozakura (Japanese); David Lodge (English)
Puppetmon is the second Dark Masters, appearing as a human-sized puppet inspired by Pinocchio who rules over Spiral Mountain's forest. He has the mind of a child, being immature, playful with a rotten temper while treating his minions as playthings that he destroys on a whim. He lives into a toy-like mansion which can transform into a giant wooden robot. While he can control others with strings and has an arsenal of real firearms, Puppetmon's signature weapon is his Bullet Hammer mallet, which can fire energy blasts. When the DigiDestined entered his domain, Puppetmon separated them before abducting T.K. in order to play a deadly game of hide and seek with him. T.K. manages to outwit Puppetmon and then disable his means to control the forest before rejoining his friends. Furious at being tricked through his need to prove he is not friendless, Puppetmon arranges Cherrymon to turn Matt against the other DigiDestined while having Garbagemon attack them. Though the plan initially works, Puppetmon angrily executes Cherrymon when he implies that the DigiDestined possess something he does not. Puppetmon then watches as WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon face off, only to be blown away as a spirit intervenes to inform the children of how they were chosen to fight the Dark Masters. Puppetmon later hunts Joe and Mimi after they depart the group for a time, but winds up fighting MetelEtemon to a draw instead. He then returns to his mansion where he is ambushed by Tai and most of the other Digidestined, as two of his disgruntled henchmen fire on him with his own cannon. Puppetmon then leads the children into a trap of his own by summoning his RedVegiemon army. After this battle turns against him as well, Puppetmon loses his hammer and is left badly outnumbered, so he uses his last trick to bring his mansion to life. As the Digidestined are occupied, Puppetmon flees, only to run into Matt and MetalGarurumon. Assuming that he can pit them against Tai and the others again, Puppetmon is shocked when his magical strings fail to have any effect. Matt taunts him into a fit of childish rage, so he foolishly charges and is blasted by MetalGarurumon at point-blank range. Puppetmon dies just as he realises that Cherrymon meant that he did not have friends.
Machinedramon (ムゲンドラモン, Magendoramon)
Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (Japanese); Dave Guerrie (English)
A large hulking robotic dragon armed with two large cannons. He has an emotionless, cold, calculating mind and speaks with a whispery voice. He often resorts to military strategies in combat, including scorched earth strategies. He rules over Spiral Mountain's cityscape, and commands a vast army of machine Digimon. Machinedramon targets the DigiDestined as they explore the city, leading them to fall into the city's lower levels. Machinedramon destroys the army of Numemon, before WarGreymon seemingly destroys Machinedramon, although the Wanderswan games reveal that despite being cut into pieces, Machinedramon manages to survive, though barely, and DNA digivolves with a dying Kimeramon to form Millenniummon. In Digimon Adventure tri., a reboot version of Machinedramon is destroyed by Phoenixmon, HerculesKabuterimon and Seraphimon.
Piedmon (ピエモン, Piemon)
Voiced by: Chikao Ōtsuka (Japanese); Derek Stephen Prince (English)
The leader of the Dark Masters, Piedmon is a Majin-type Digimon dressed as a colourful pierrot who possesses a number of magical tricks, and uses four swords in combat. Piedmon speaks with a slight British accent and uses a number of theatre-related puns in dialogue. He maintains an upbeat but sadistic sense of humor, displaying a passion for fighting. Four years prior to the events of Adventure, Piedmon attacked Gennai's group who created the DigiDestined's Digi-Eggs, Tags, and Crests. Gennai escapes with the Digi-Eggs, while Piedmon obtained the Tags and Crests, meeting Devimon at some point and they hid them across Server. He rules from atop Spiral Mountain in a large observatory-funhouse building in a rocky wasteland. Piedmon observes the actions of the other Dark Masters and does not engage the DigiDestined in combat until they arrive in his domain and defeated his lieutenant LadyDevimon. When all of the DigiDestined save Mimi reunite, Piedmon uses a number of magical cloths to turn them into keyrings. Only T.K., Kari, and Patamon were left with the two children nearly killed by Piedmon before they were saved by the newly digivolved MagnaAngemon who then restores their friends to normal. Though Piedmon responds with his army of Vilemon, his forces are defeated by the army of friends Mimi amassed to help the DigiDestined out. In the end, Piedmon is blasted by WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon into MagnaAngemon's Gate of Destiny, trapping Piedmon and ending the reign.

Apocalymon[edit]

Voiced by: Chikao Ōtsuka (Japanese); Paul St. Peter (English)

A demonic Digimon, responsible for bringing chaos in the Digital World, using Devimon, Myotismon and the Dark Masters. He reveals that he was born from the data of Digimon who had died instead of digivolving, and that their sadness and anger fills his very being, causing him to be depressed and somewhat suicidal and self-harming (when giving his monologue to the DigiDestined he even scratched himself deeply spilling a greenish blood from his wounds); this led him to wage war against the joyful Digital World, in order to share his suffering. In the Japanese version he refers to himself as "we", possibly because of his nature of being composed of the many Digimon whose data composes him, and as a reference to the Biblical Legion. After demonstrating his ability to use the techniques of Digimon the DigiDestined defeated, he uses his "Reverse Digivolve" attack to revert all of the DigiDestined's Digimon back into their default forms before then destroying the tags and crests. Apocalymon then uses his power to delete the DigiDestined and their Digimon, sending them to the Data World until they realize that they had the true crest powers within them all along, and they are able to rematerialize in the Digital World with their partners in their strongest forms for the true fight against Apocalymon. After the other Digimon destroy his Death Claws, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon destroy his humanoid form. Though they think they have won, Apocalymon speaks, and explains that those were only minor parts of him. He performs his suicidal ultimate attack in a last-ditch effort within the entire dimensional space, but the DigiDestined members use their Digivices to trap the blast, and destroy Apocalymon. In Digimon Adventure tri., it was revealed that Meicoomon was born from a fragment of Apocalymon's data, making her the embodiment of the dark side of the Digital World.

Kimeramon[edit]

Kimeramon (キメラモン, Chimairamon) is a Composition Digimon created by Ken while as the Digimon Emperor to be his ideal Digimon partner to help him take over the Digital World, and he is seen working on it over a period of time. By that time, Ken synthesized various Digimon data to combine the best attributes into his creation. After acquiring the data remains of Devimon, manifesting in its upper arms, Ken completes Kimeramon. Though it was too powerful for the armored Digimon to fight, Devimon's data intensified Kimeramon's terrifying combat instinct and made it beyond Ken's control as it starts to runs amok while destroying everything in its path. Worried for Ken, Wormmon takes Davis to the power source of the base, the Digi-Egg of Miracles. Using it, Veemon becomes Magnamon. Although Magnamon puts up more of a fight, Kimeramon eventually overpowers him, and he is only able to destroy Kimeramon using the energy sacrificed by Wormmon.

Arukenimon[edit]

Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (Japanese); Mari Devon (English)

Arukenimon (アルケニモン, Arachnemon) is a spider-like Digimon who is extremely cunning with great intelligence but has an equally scary temper. Being created by Oikawa with his DNA synthesized into her data, Arukenimon can assume the form of a woman with silvery white hair in red and purple spider-themed clothing with large shades concealing her eyes. Overseeing Ken's actions as the Digimon Emperor from behind the scenes, Arukenimon becomes the central antagonist after the boy turns over a new leaf. At first, Arukenimon appeared before the DigiDestined in her human form as she uses her Spirit Needle hair to turn Control Spires into Digimon-like monsters that follow her orders. But in light of Paildramon's debut, Arukenimon lured the children into Giga House and used a flute to control the resident insect Digimon to kill them off for her. However, when that scheme failed, she decided to take drastic measures and shifted to her Digimon form. She fought the children and proved to be a formidable foe, but suffers a humiliating defeat before Mummymon saved her.

Bent on revenge for what she endured, Arukenimon created BlackWarGreymon to rid herself of the children. However, due to the one hundred Control Spires giving Black WarGreymon free will, Arukenimon refocuses her plan to destroy the Destiny Stones to throw off the balance of the Digital World. When BlackWarGreymon is motivated to destroy them, Arukenimon decided to hold off the DigiDestined to keep them from interfering. However, with divine intervention from the Digimon Sovereign Azulongmon, Arukenimon's plans are foiled.

Following this, Arukenimon and Mummymon turned to Oikawa as he instructed Arukenimon to open the Digital Gates in the entire world. During Christmas Day, as the DigiDestined traveled around the world and helped their foreign DigiDestined allies close the gates, Arukenimon and Mummymon drove around Tokyo in a truck and kidnapped twenty children. The following day, they kidnapped Ken as well, so that Oikawa could scan his Dark Spore and pass it on to the children. After this, Oikawa, Arukenimon and Mummymon ran off to hide in a vacation house in the mountains, but BlackWarGreymon came from the Digital World to destroy them. As BlackWarGreymon asked Arukenimon and Mummymon where they came from, Oikawa revealed their origins. While the revelation clearly shocked and troubled Arukenimon and Mummymon, Arukenimon preferred not to discuss it and focus her efforts on tracking the seeded children and protecting Oikawa as they hid back in his run-down apartment in Tokyo. Arukenimon is killed by MaloMyotismon.

Mummymon[edit]

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese); Kirk Thornton (English)

Mummymon (マミーモン, Mamīmon) is an undead Digimon who is seen in Arukenimon's company. Being created by Oikawa with his DNA synthesized into him, Mummymon dons a royal blue coat and hat, and wields a cane. Mummymon first appeared to the aid of Arukenimon after it was beaten by the DigiDestined at the Giga House. Following this, he began working together with her to destroy the balance of the Digital World. Mummymon was in love with Arukenimon, and tended to flirt with her instead of focusing on their mission, but Arukenimon always rejected him in her arrogance. Mummymon never took the rejection to heart, however, and remained optimistic and cheerful. Still, because of his loyalty to Arukenimon and general skill, he remained a formidable foe to the DigiDestined over the course of the series. Mummymon is killed by MaloMyotismon.

BlackWarGreymon[edit]

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese); Steven Blum (English)

An artificial Digimon clone of WarGreymon, created by Arukenimon from a hundred Control Spires. After BlackWarGreymon defeats Paildramon, he betrays Arukenimon. It would turn out that, due to the number of Spires used in his creation, BlackWarGreymon had developed a conscious mind. However his self-awareness had caused BlackWarGreymon to be confused about his purpose in life.

He is befriended by Agumon, but a severe pain in his body leads him to destroying the first Destiny Stone. After destroying the first Destiny Stone BlackWarGreymon sees Azulongmon in a vision and views him as a worthy opponent. BlackWarGreymon makes it his mission to destroy all the Destiny Stones in order to find and face Azulongmon, convinced that his battle with Azulongmon would solve his existential crisis. When Azulongmon finally does appear, BlackWarGreymon is easily defeated and the Sovereign tells him that all things have a purpose in life; BlackWarGreymon departs to find it.

BlackWarGreymon emerges in Tokyo to kill Oikawa for disrupting the balance of both Earth and the Digital World. Agumon receives a power boost from Azulongmon, allowing him to digivolve to WarGreymon, who then engaged his twin in battle but is convinced to depart. BlackWarGreymon returns again as Chikara Hida, Cody's grandfather, tries to talk Oikawa out of his plan, but he takes a mortal blow when Myotismon momentarily takes over Oikawa's body. Realizing the truth, BlackWarGreymon sacrifices himself to seal the Highton View Terrace Gate and prevent Myotismon from entering the Digital World.

Yukio Oikawa[edit]

Voiced by: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese); Jamieson Price (English)

Yukio Oikawa (及川 悠紀夫, Oikawa Yukio), considered the most tragic character in the series, is one of the few humans to have been aware of the Digimon's existence before the events of 1999. As a child in the 1970s, Oikawa was an extremely lonely and his only friend was Hiroki Hida, Cody's father. The two learned of the Digital World though were discouraged by Hiroki's father Chikara. Though forced to part, Oikawa and Hiroki promised each other to reach the Digital World together someday with Oikawa investigating the events at Highton View Terrace. But when Hiroki died years later, a distraught Oikawa felt betrayed as he was present at Tokyo Harbor on August 3, 1999. Seeing the DigiDestined depart to the Digital World, Oikawa saw it was possible to travel as his pleas for them to take him were not heard. In his moment of grief and weakness, Oikawa allowed Myotismon's spirit to possess him in return to enter the Digital World. Having forgotten the encounter, Oikawa was manipulated by Myotismon as his obsession with the Digital World became increasingly unhealthy with knowledge that he uses to create Arukenimon and Mummymon to the Digital World.

Soon after attending the funeral of his boss's son, Sam Ichijouji, Oikawa found the means of entering the Digital World through Ken upon sensing the Dark Spore and masterminded the boy's own descent into madness so he could weaken the boundaries between the worlds with the Control Spires. However, the interference of the DigiDestined thwarted Oikawa's plans through both Ken and later the destruction of the Destiny Stones before he decides that weakening the dimensional border from his side may bare more fruit. To that end, Oikawa has Arukenimon bio-emerge Digimon all over the world to keep the DigiDestined at bay while Arukenimon and Mummymon gather children with promises of bettering their lives. By the time the Daemon Corps go on the attack to get Ken, Oikawa reveals himself as he spirits Ken away to copy the Dark Spore data and transfer it into the children. After this, Oikawa and his group go into hiding so the copied Dark Spores can take effect, first hiding out in the mountain side before falling back to Oikawa's apartment building. There, Oikawa meets Cody Hida and becomes conflicted upon learning the boy is Hiroki's son. Fighting his personal guilt, Oikawa manages to absorb the power of the bloomed Dark Flower of Noriko Kawada. Though Chikara arrived to reason with Oikawa, Myotismon takes control of his body to kill the old man with BlackWarGreymon taking the mortal blow and realizing Oikawa is nothing more than a pawn.

Thought the DigiDestined hoped to take advantage of BlackWarGreymon's sacrifice to catch Oikawa off guard as he gathered all of the children together in Highton View Terrace, Oikawa was subconsciously motivated by Myotismon to take everyone to the World of Dreams under the impression that they are going to the Digital World. Realizing the truth, Oikawa regains his full memory of Myotismon as the evil Digimon leaves his body and renders him unconscious. Coming to as MaloMyotismon is destroyed, Oikawa learns that the evil Digimon took much of his life and is now on the verge of death. Though Cody tried to help Oikawa cross over, his body was beyond help and barely able to enter the Digital World to be with his Digimon partner Datrinimon. Knowing that he had little time left to live, Oikawa apologizes for his actions before using the World of Dreams to convert himself into data-based butterflies to repair the damaged Digital World.

He comes to Tokyo with his Daemon Corps, a small army composed of LadyDevimon, SkullSatamon, and MarineDevimon. After his minions are defeated, Daemon tries to seize Ken after he was kidnapped by Oikawa and learned the human secretly copied the Dark Spore data for his own agenda. The DigiDestined confront Daemon but Imperialdramon, Silphymon, and Shakkoumon were barely holding their own against Daemon. To make matters worst, when the DigiDestined consider using a digital gate to send him back to the Digital World, Daemon reveals his ability to Bio-Emerge infinitely no matter how many times he is sent into the Digi World. But in a dangerous gambit, Ken uses his inner darkness to redirect the portal to the Dark Ocean, and Daemon is sent to the World of Darkness.

Diaboromon[edit]

Voiced by: Paul St. Peter

Introduced in the short film Our War Game, Diaboromon is an unknown-type Digimon who appeared on the internet as a digi-egg. He invades the internet after hatching into Kuramon, while digivolving to his current state. In the English dub, Diaboromon was created by Willis, but the egg was attacked and mutated by a computer virus. In his previous forms, Diaboromon wreaks havoc across Japan and America's electrical systems. He then launches nuclear missiles to wipe out the DigiDestined while cloning himself, but Omnimon stops him. In Revenge of Diaboromon, the enemy survives and reconstitutes himself. He traps Omnimon, Angemon and Angewomon, while Kuramon enters the real world to converge and combine into Armageddomon to destroy Tokyo. However, Armageddomon is destroyed by Imperialdramon with the Omni Sword and Kuramon is sent back to the internet.

Alphamon[edit]

Introduced in Digimon Adventure tri., Alphamon (アルファモン, Arufamon) is an exalted-knight Digimon armed with the Holy Sword Gradalpha and the Ouryuken (王竜剣) broadsword. He is King Drasil's servant with great power due to his possession of the "Alpha inForce", a polar opposite of Omnimon's "Omega inForce" that allows him to manipulate time to his advantage. Having defeated Davis and the other newer DigiDestined members, Alphamon came into the human world to capture Meicoomon, before he fails to do so. In the Digital World, Alphamon fights with Jesmon.

King Drasil[edit]

Introduced in Digimon Adventure tri., King Drasil (Yggdrasill in Japanese version) is a host computer-like being in the form of a tree ruling over the entire the "Digital World". Revealed to be after Meicoomon, Drasil sends Alphamon and Gennai after her because she is "Libra", a fragment of Apocalymon's data and the embodiment of the dark side of the Digital World. It was only following the Digital World's reboot that Drasil's existence is revealed to Daigo when Hackmon delivers him a message from Homeostasis. The DigiDestined themselves hear about it from Gennai when he attacked them. Drasil used Meicoomon and her power to "infect" Digimon and distort space as Ordinemon to try to destroy humanity and absorb the real world. However, the plan fails after Omnimon defeats Ordinemon and Drasil is deleted by Homeostasis.

Recurring characters[edit]

Gennai[edit]

Young Voiced by: Hiroaki Hirata (Japanese); Jeff Nimoy, Steven Blum (Series Finale) (English)
Old Voiced by: Joji Yanami (Japanese); Mike Reynolds (English)

Gennai (ゲンナイ, Gennai) is a data-based human in the form of an old man who serves as the DigiDestined's guide after their battle with Devimon. He contacts the DigiDestined to ask them to head to the continent of Server to defeat the powerful enemies there, and informs them that the partner Digimon have the potential to Digivolve with powers of Crests and Tags. He appears to the children after the disastrous Digivolution of SkullGreymon to warn the children of the risks involved. He is not seen again for some time after this, even when Tai and Agumon disappear following Etemon's destruction. Izzy's attempts to find Gennai end when Vademon captures him. Gennai later contacts the children after Izzy escapes, and provides him with a Digimon analyser for his computer. After the children reunite, Gennai makes contact to inform them of an eighth DigiDestined, and that Myotismon plans to enter the real world to kill the child. When the children's first attempt to follow Myotismon is foiled, Gennai guides them to his home under a lake, and the children meet him in person for the first time. Gennai explains the gate to the real world must be opened with a set of cards, although he does not tell the DigiDestined which combination will send them home. Gennai also modifies Izzy's computer further, enabling him to make contact by email in both the real and Digital Worlds, which he uses on several occasions to warn Izzy of Digimon attacks, and to explain the prophecy concerning Myotismon's return. During Kari's possession in the fight against the Dark Masters, it was revealed that a younger Gennai, alongside fellow data-humans, assisted in creating the DigiDestined's Digimon to fight against the Dark Masters. However, Piedmon slaughtered his friends, and he was forced to escape with the DigiDestined's Digivices and Digimons' eggs, although the one that held Gatomon was lost in the journey to File Island. After the final battle against Piedmon, Gennai delivers another revelation; the DigiDestined are not the first children to have come to the Digital World - a group of children was previously summoned to destroy an evil that came from behind the Wall of Fire, a barrier behind which the most powerful evil Digimon are trapped, and distorted the time and space between the real and Digital Worlds. The arrival of another evil force created the Dark Masters, and threatened the fabric of reality once again. The current group of Dgidestined were chosen to destroy this threat, which is shortly revealed to be Apocalymon. After his defeat, Gennai tells the children to return home, although they return a year later to give up the power of their Crests to repair the damage done to both worlds.

In the second series, Gennai regains his youthful appearance as he meets his old friend Azulongmon and is entrusted with one of his DigiCores to give to the DigiDestined on Christmas Day. Gennai then reveals he, along with other members of his kind, have been working to remove all information gathered by humans regarding the Digital World, to protect it from unfriendly interest. Gennai later appears in the series finale, revealing to have possessed Gatomon's Tail Ring the entire time as he explains that was so it can Armor and DNA Digivolve like the others. Gennai is briefly mentioned by Daigo and Maki in Digimon Adventure tri. as the one who provided the government with the resources to deal with the infected Digimon until they became too strong to handle without the DigiDestined's help. Another Gennai, loyal to King Drasil, is more of a malicious sociopath who believes the Digimon are being enslaved by humans and oversees the plan of using Meicoomon to destroy the humans with their world absorbed into the Digtial World. This Gennai initially appears as Ken in his Digimon Emperor persona, seeking to provoke Meicoomon to awaken her inner darkness while feigning to be abducting her when confronted by the DigiDestinated and sending Imperialdramon to fight them in their first meeting. Following the Digital World's reboot, revealed to have Maki aiding him under the promise of being reunited with Bakumon, Gennai uses Machinedramon and MetalSeadramon to hold off the heroes, while attacking Meiko to provoke Meicoomon once more. After Omnimon destroys Ordinemon, Gennai retreats from the human world.

Meiko Mochizuki: Voiced by: Miho Arakawa (Japanese); Cristina Vee (English)
Meicoomon: Voiced by: Yukiko Morishita (Japanese); Kate Higgins (English)

Meiko Mochizuki (望月 芽心, Mochidzuki Meiko) is a mysterious DigiDestined from Tottori, who is transferred to high school. She has a shy and kind demeanor. After obtaining her Digivice in 1999, Meiko becomes distraught, when her partner, Meicoomon (メイクーモン, Meikūmon), went feral and felt very guilty towards her friends. A Champion level Maine Coon cat Digimon and Meiko's partner, also known as "Libra", revealed to be born from a surviving fragment of Apocalymon. While Meiko keeps the residual malice within Meicoomon in check, the power manifests as an infection within her. This forces Homeostasis and Hackmon to deem Meicoomon a threat and Alphamon fails to capture her. Though subjected to the Digiworld's reboot, Meicoomon retains her memories of Meiko and her condition eventually worsens through Drasil's plan to the point of absorbing Gatomon, while swallowing the real world into the Digital World as Ordinemon. After the heroes extracted Gatomon, Omnimon destroys Ordinemon.

Meicrackmon Vicious Mode (メイクラックモンヴィシャスモード, Meikurakkumon Vishasu Mōdo)
Meicoomon's Ultimate form. She obtains it after killing Leomon. Overcome by her infection, she is far stronger and more aggressive. While regressed back to Meicoomon, she digivolved back to Meicrackmon, when Gennai injures Meiko to provoke her into a berserk rage.

Daigo Nishijima[edit]

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa (Japanese); Doug Erholtz (English)

Disguised as a substitute teacher in Tai's 11th grade calligraphy class, Daigo Nishijima (西島 大吾, Nishijima Daigo) is a government agent for an organization monitoring Digimon activity and was tasked to watch over him and the other DigiDestined in the school. It is revealed in the fourth film that Daigo was actually a member of the five original DigiDestined who preceded Tai and his friends, his partner Bearmon digivolving from his Ultimate form LoaderLiomon into the Digimon Sovereign Baihumon during their final battle with the Dark Masters. Daigo appears to have been Tai's predecessor as his team's "goggle head," as shown in the flashbacks as evidenced by the goggles lying on the ground near his and LoaderLiomon's unconscious bodies during their final battle with the Dark Masters. Daigo's personality can be accurately described as warm, friendly, compassionate, and light-hearted. His past relationship with Maki Himekawa was founded on his desire to console her in her grief over the loss of her partner, Tapirmon. Daigo does what he can to make life easy on the current DigiDestined, most likely to empathize with them for their similar hardships. Daigo's extremely empathetic personality has put him at odds with Maki, who puts professionalism ahead of her feelings for the most part. However, he appears determined to spare the current DigiDestined from the tragic turn of events that scarred Maki, harboring a sense of survivor's guilt over how her Digimon had to die to enable the others to survive and assume their current forms. At the facility, the dying Daigo sends Tai and the four missing Digidestined back to the real world.

Maki Himekawa[edit]

Voiced by: Yuko Kaida (Japanese); Cherami Leigh (English)

Maki Himekawa (姫川 マキ, Himekawa Maki) is Daigo's co-worker and superior in the government, with a more serious approach than him. They have known each other since they were students and Daigo hints that they were once a couple. She seems to be more involved with the Digimon incidents than she lets on, to the point of following the DigiDestined when they return to the Digital World looking for their partners. Maki hides crucial information from Tai and the others for some reason yet unexplained until they discover it themselves, like the fact that Meicoomon was the cause of the Digimon infection or the disppearance of their fellow DigiDestined. The prequel flashback revealed that Maki was one of the DigiDestined, as well as Homeostasis' medium before Kari. This motivated Maki to aid Dark Gennai in rebooting the Digital World to be reunited with Tapirmon, who sacrificed himself while as Megadramon to enable his fellow Digimon to digivolve into the Digimon Sovereigns. But Himekawa breaks down upon learning that Tapirmon does not remember her. While she once had many personality traits that Tai and Kari possessed when she was their age, Maki grew up becoming a stoic and cold workaholic whose obsession of being reunited with Tapirmon borders on madness. Driven insane by her desperation to be reunited with Tapirmon, Maki drowns in the Dark Ocean.
