Evolution levels also suffer from this.
Protagonist Power-Up Privileges : Almost every season the Hero and the Lancer will be the only ones to unlock the ability to digivolve to Mega, or achieve the first evolutions.
Ear Wings : Patamon, Terriermon, Lopmon, and Culumon.
Shout-Out : Yes, Gennai does sound like Jedi.The anime installments downplay the randomness of this facet of things, by giving each individual partner having a single straight line through various forms (which tend to differ even for individuals of the same species; Tai Marcus both had Agumon partners, distinguished by their evolines).Digimon V-Tamer 01 : The Digital World is saved and all the humans return home, but although Taichi's technically separated from Zeromaru, he'll always have him at his side as his V-Pet.To the day, the fandom will refer to Terriermon and Lopmon as dog-rabbits.
Goggles Do Nothing : Aside from Marcus, every team's leader wears a pair on their head.
But when he was murdered, an evil spirit offers Kain the chance to return and get revenge.
Dark Is Evil : In general, "black" versions of pre-existing Digimon (e.g., BlackWarGreymon) are either berserk or outright evil Virus counterparts to the Vaccine-type original.Some go back and forth.An armored Winged Humanoid with ten wings.Sea Monster : A common antagonistic force, corrupted or not.Which makes SkullGreymon a mindless, semi-invulnerable creature bent on mass destruction with a nuclear missile attached to its back.Savers actually had to have the Bridge Bunnies call their partners' attacks, as they were mute.The Digimon Almanac keeps a good record of these.
