It Can't Be! Lucemon Reappears

Aired Tuesday 9:00 PM May 12, 2003 on TV Asahi



  • Trivia

    • Digimon carries on the tradition of having the Digi-Destined defeat who they believe to be the final bad guy only to realize there is someone else who was actually in control:

      * Season 1: It happend a few times but the final one was after killing Piedmon, Apocolypmon appeared.

      * Season 2: Killed Arukenimon then MaloMyotismon appeared who caused her death.

      * Season 3: After killing all the Deva's and defeating Zhuqiaomon, the D-Reaper comes.

      This season they think it's Cherubimon when in actually it is Lucemon who is the TRUE evil.

    • Tommy: It feels like a dream.

  • Notes

    • The ten Ancient Warriors who defeated Lucemon are seen out of shadow for the first time in Baromon's flashback. They are AncientGreymon, AncientGarurumon, AncientMegathurimon, AncientKazemon, AncientBeetlemon, AncientSphinxmon, AncientVolcamon, AncientTroiamon, AncientMermaimon, and AncientWisemon.

    • Japanese Title: The Endless Death Match! Prelude Of Lucemon's Revival!

    • Here is a bit of foreshadowing: Kouichi finds that everyone except Takuya, Koji, and him have had the fractal codes revealed after Baromon's sacrificed.

    • Debuts: Baromon, Crusadermon, Dynasmon, Lucemon (shadowed)

    • Baromon is also called Baronmon. His name is short for Barong, the king of the spirits in the mythology of Bali.

    • This episode is the most recent example of Michael Sorich's fondness for using the Japanese episode titles as a basis for his own English titles. "Invasion of the Daemon Corps," "Kazemon Kicks It," "Home Again, Takuya Returns," "Phantasmagoric Sakkakumon," "Takuya and Koji's Evolution Revolution" and this episode all have their titles taken/adapted from/inspired by their Japanese counterparts, and were all written by Sorich. The only other episode to do this that wasn't Sorich-written was "The Insect Master's Trap."

    • Crusadermon was first called RhodoKnightmon. In the Japanese version, a man played Crusadermon.

    • Recap: Baromon is the Armor Digivolved form of Patamon through the Digi-Egg of Courage.
