  • Trivia

    • Just before Tentomon digivolves to champion form, Izzy's digivice is colored purple.

    • When MetalGarurumon attacks along with all of the other Digimon, he yells out "Metal Wolf Claw!" and shoots a missile from his chest at VenomMyotismon. However, this is not the correct attack name as he later attacks with Metal Wolf Claw and releases a large blue blast from his mouth, which we see in later episodes is the correct name for that attack.

    • Whe Tai mentions the plane being saved by Garudamon, he say Great job, Birdramon instead of Garudamon.

    • When Matt say "Hi mom," his mouth doesn't move.

    • When Mimi tells Jim to watch the parents, she calls him Joe.

    • Kari says "What are we going to do? They don't allow pets in our apartment" (referring to Salamon). She says this even though they already live with a cat living with them in their apartment.

    • Wargreymon yells out "Mega Claw!" when using his 'Great Tornado' attack to break through VenomMyotismon's abdomin. 'Mega Claw' was originally the secondary attack of Metalgreymon.

  • Quotes

    • Jim: You guys better get cranking. Although it's hard to believe the fate of the world's in the hands of a bunch of kids like you. I guess if the sun doesn't come up tomorrow, we'll know you messed up!
      Izzy's Mother: Stop it! You've got to have faith in your brother and his friends. What they're doing is incredibly brave!
      Jim: Whoa! Sorry, lady! I didn't mean anything!
      Joe: It's okay. He was only kidding. And besides... I'm gonna make darn sure the sun does come up!
      Sora: Joe, I didn't know you had it in you!
      Mimi: What a man!

    • Joe: It's covering the whole sky!
      Matt: It has to be Myotismon's work again.
      Tsunomon: But that's impossible, isn't it? We defeated Myotismon for good this time.
      Koromon: Yeah, we kicked booty!

    • Izzy: It's WarGreymon! It says here his attack is Terra Force - gathering the energy around him and focusing it in the palm of his hand! And MetalGarurumon has his Metal Wolfclaw attack. He shoots a poweful cold blast at his enemies, then blows them to pieces! Mega digimon! They digivolved into their Mega digimon forms!
      Tentomon: That's great, 'cause we'll need them to beat VenomMyotismon!
      Matt: Yeah, that's for sure!
      Tentomon: Good luck! I'll wait here.

    • Mimi: Look, a stray Digimon.
      : Don't you recognize me? I was Gatomon; What do I have to: cough up a hairball?

    • Kari: Salamon, is that your world up there?
      Salamon: I think so, but the last time i saw it, it was definetly right-side up!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Gomamon's line "You know what they say, All For Mon and Mon for All!" is a reference to the famous quote from the Three Musketeers, "All For One and One For All!"

    • WarGreymon's Terra Force resembles Goku's spirit bomb from Dragon Ball Z.
