    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (7)

      • Kiwimon is the 100th Digimon to debut in the series.

      • After the battle against MetalSeadramon, WarGreymon reverts to Koromon. But in "Enter The Dark Masters", he reverted to Agumon after being defeated by Piedmon.

        Explanation: Piedmon forced WarGreymon and MetalGarumon back to their standard rookie forms, when they revert on their own terms its to in-training because of all the energy it takes.

      • When Puppetmon says "I put the fun in fungus" if you look at his hand it looks like he's holding a gun. In the original version, he was holding a gun but the dub airbrushed it out.

      • Tentomon calls his attack "Electro Shocker" in this episode. That's Kabuterimon's attack, Tentomon's is "Super Shocker." A precursor to season two, where attack name screw-ups would be rife.

      • "Hey Digimon" is particularly badly synched in this episode - it doesn't start to play until the very brief battle is over!

      • When the ground begins to move beneath the team's feet, Tai and Agumon are missing from the aerial view of the group.

      • When Mimi says "Stop it, Tai!" the cross on Whamon's marker has disappeared.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Sora: Wow, Mimi! Your doll is really pretty.
        Mimi: What? No way! I would never wear rags like this. Oh! I could take her to the mall for some new clothes. (both friends laugh)
        Palmon and Biyomon: All right! You go!

      • Joe: Those wimpy Dark Masters are no threat to SuperJoe!
        Gatomon: That's the Digitude I like to hear from you humans!

      • WarGreymon: (To MetalSeadramon) So much for your penetrable Chrome Digizoid armor; Looks to me like you got a little rusty!
        Kabuterimon: Next time you decide you want to rule the waters, do everybody a favor and take a bubble bath instead!

      • Puppetmon: If these kids take any longer to get here, I will develop wood rot!
        Kiwimon: Have patience; Rome wasn't built in a day.
        Puppetmon: Yeah, but I was, and I'm tired of waiting!

      • Patamon: Joe's on TV? Lets see what else is on!

      • Puppetmon: This is more fun then the time I was fumigated for termites!

      • Puppetmon: Hey, you guys, you didn't happen to see a little kid run back here, did ya? He's a green hat and a backpack.
        Blossomon: No, we didn't see anything like that boss.
        Mushroomon: All we saw was a kid wearing a backpack and a green hat! He's hiding over there!

      • Joe: My stomach!
        Kari: Does it hurt?
        Joe: No, I'm just doing this because it's fun!

    • NOTES (7)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Kiwimon:
        Kiwimon is like the extinct animal called a dodo. Kiwimon has nearly the same features with the dodo- cannot fly, extinct and the like.

      • Puppetmon: (to Matt) Don't lie to him or your nose will grow!

        This is a reference the the story Pinocchio, where the title character's nose grows whenever he lies. Also, Puppetmon's Japanese name is Pinocchimon.

      • Puppetmon's Dolls:

        The dolls Puppetmon uses to control the digidestined are a parody of voodoo dolls.
