The Digital World (often referred to as the "DigiWorld" in English media) is a fictional universe featured in the Digimon media franchise. In Digimon anime, manga, video games, and other related merchandise, the Digital World is a parallel universe to Earth that was made from computer data originating in Earth's communications networks.


According to the video game Brave Tamer, the Digital World's beginnings can be traced to the early twentieth century, with the activation of the Atanasoff–Berry Computer (ABC) - the first computer - which laid the basic foundations of the world. Subsequently, the first patented computer, ENIAC, was activated, and proceeded to build upon those foundations, shaping the Digital World. Over the ensuing years, through the continued growth of the electronic communications network on Earth, the Digital World continued to expand and grow, even after the ABC and ENIAC were shut down. There are multiple alternate reality incarnations of the Digital World, each one running parallel with the various multiple Earths that exist in the multiverse.

The different Digimon anime series are set in separate Digital Worlds. The basic mechanics, locations and inhabitants of Digital World appear in each, though the individual natures, origins, and histories of the worlds vary greatly. Similarities between the various Digital Worlds exist, however. They all basically parallel Earth's geographic features. There are continents, islands, deserts, mountains, oceans and almost all other kinds of terrain one finds on the topography of Earth. However, as data is easy to modify, and considering that the Digital World is made up of data, the features of any particular area of Digital World are subject to immediate and drastic alteration at any time. For example, a gigantic mountain can be formed in moments[1] or halves of islands can be scattered across a sea[2] with ease. The malleability of the Digital World makes it a frequent target of attack from within and from humans with malevolent intentions.

Although ordinary animals like birds and fish are known to exist in at least some of the Digital Worlds, the dominant lifeforms of all realities are Digimon. Digimon are sentient creatures that, like the Digital World, are made of data. It is possible for Digimon to travel to the "Real World," what Digimon call Earth, though this requires the opening of some sort of dimensional wormhole in Digital World.

Most of humanity does not know of Digital World's existence. The few humans that do either programmed some aspect of the original version of that world or were summoned there by a Digimon or another digital being. On rare occasions, however, a wormhole can appear on Earth, allowing people unknowing of Digital World to enter it.

TV series

Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02

The Digital World featured in Digimon Adventure is the same featured in Digimon Adventure 02; Adventure 02 is a sequel to Adventure. This incarnation of the Digital World runs closely parallel to three other dimensions. Two of which are a kaleidoscopic world that possesses the power to transform thoughts and dreams into reality,[3] and a "world of darkness," a grim, foreboding ocean that has the ability to make the dark thoughts of others come to life.[4] The Digital World is tied very closely to these two worlds and has absorbed a fraction of the former's power to bring thoughts to life; this power, combined with the data of the Digital World, gave life to human thoughts, dreams, spiritual beliefs and myths in the form of Digimon.

In this universe, Digimon life is cyclical. When a Digimon reaches the end of their life, the data which makes up their body disperses, only to reform at Primary Village, where it takes the form of a Digitama, (Dub: Digi Egg). The eggs are tended by Elecmon and hatch out into baby Digimon, so that the Digimon can live their lives over again, infinite times. There is some evidence to suggest that the data of evil Digimon does not reform at Primary Village, but rather is sent to somewhere in the world of darkness, either to the Dark Ocean or the Dark Area.

Many locations in this Digital World are named after computer programs and hardware. For example, the two continents of the Digital World are named Folder and Server. File Island is a key location in this Digital World, home to Primary Village and a form of nexus point for the world's data.

The Harmonious Ones are the guardians of the four compass points of the Digital World as well as the centre. Azulongmon is the guardian of the Eastern region, where the Japanese Chosen Children's adventures take place (corresponding to the Real World location of the human partners).

Years before the beginning of the series, when an evil being (most likely Apocalymon) came to the Digital World from beyond the "wall of fire," (similar to a computer's firewall) its presence caused the Digital World to become warped, throwing its chronology out of sync with the Real World, with one Digital World day equaling less than one minute on Earth. To defeat this being, a group of five human children were chosen and brought to the Digital World, successfully defeating the evil force. These children were known as the first "Chosen Children", (Dub: DigiDestined) and their legend was famed throughout the Digital World, with temples erected to their memories and a prophecy that said a new generation of Chosen Children would arise when the Digital World would need them again. Some years later, Apocalymon's effects on the Digital World result in a new group of eight children being selected to become the new Chosen Children and they were transported to the Digital World to battle the evil that had infected it. As a result of their success, Digital World time was re-synchronized with Earth time.

In Digimon Adventure 02, the dimensional balance of the Digital World came under threat when the human Yukio Oikawa - possessed by the digital ghost of the evil Myotismon - used agents such as the Digimon Kaiser (Dub: Digimon Emperor), Mummymon and Archnemon (Dub: Arukenimon) to erect huge black obelisks, known as Dark Towers (Dub: Control Spires), around the Digital World, destabilizing reality all around it so that he could gain access to it. The culmination of this plan resulted in the revelation of the Digital World's existence to the Real world at large; twenty-five years after these events, all humans have a Digimon partner.

Digimon Tamers

Digimon Tamers features a very different Digital World from that depicted in the first two Digimon series. In the earliest stages of its existence, this incarnation of the Digital World was little more than a barren desert. As it grew alongside the Earth's communications network, however, it evolved and changed in dynamic ways, with more and more "layers" coming into existence over the top of the old ones. The lowest layer is the original desert plain and the highest is the home of the Four Holy Beasts (Dub: Digimon Sovereigns) that rule the Digital World. In between lie many small "mini-verses," self-contained environments specially suited to the Digimon that live there, including (but not limited to)

  • An area of clouds and clockwork
  • A warped, black-and-white town
  • An area of forests, lakes and rivers
  • A 'world' entirely composed of caves and water.

Random packets of discarded data often roam the Digital World like tumbleweeds and can be used to help repair and heal injured Digimon. Although the Digital World has both night and day, there is no transitional period between the two, with darkness instantly sweeping across the world like a sheet, as though it were a binary alteration (on or off). Visible in the sky no matter what plane it is viewed from is a pulsing globe of code and light, which represent the Earth - from it emanate "data streams," vast columns of energy which reach down into the Digital World and manipulate its digital matter, physical representations of acts performed on computers across the Earth. Should an individual be caught in a data stream, they will be swept up into it and deposited elsewhere, on any of the Digital World's potential planes. Between Earth and the Digital World is a warped region of interdimensional space where reality is constantly in flux and defined only by the perceptions of individuals passing through it.

Digimon are, in fact, not native to this Digital World, having been created by a group of teenage computer programmers in the late 1980s as an experiment into the development of artificial intelligence. When their project was shut down due to lack of funds, their primitive digital life-forms accidentally found their way into the Digital World, where they began to grow and evolve. One of the programmers, Shibumi, observed this and wrote an algorithm that allowed the Digimon to evolve beyond their original specifications and truly become individual life-forms. Four Digimon in particular evolved into especially powerful forms and became the aforementioned "Four Holy Beasts." The Digital World does have some native life-forms, however, in the form of "DigiGnomes," the first form of artificial life who evolved from the matter of the Digital World itself before the coming of Digimon. The DigiGnomes tend to the welfare of the Digital World and have mysterious, undefined powers that allow them to grant the wishes of others.

While conducting secret information-gathering on the network, the Japanese SIGINT organization, Hypnos became aware of the existence of the Digital World and its Digimon, which they dubbed "Wild Ones." Some time after this, Digimon began to appear in the real world, possibly due to Hypnos's inadvertent creation of a "weak spot" in the borders between the worlds. Digimon materialize on Earth through a process known as "Realization," (Dub: Bio-Emerge) which begins when the barrier between the worlds is temporarily sundered to allow their passage through. The interaction of the two dimensions creates a "Digital Field" - a small gray fog bank - which allows the Digimon to synthesize false proteins and convert itself into a physical form after interacting with the Earth's electromagnetic field. These Digital Fields can appear in random locations instantaneously and often with little warning.

In addition to Hypnos and the original programmers, known as the "Wild Bunch," (Dub: Monster Makers) the only humans to initially be aware of Digimon and the Digital World are children who possess a partner Digimon known as "Tamers." These Tamers had been chosen by the DigiGnomes to become partners with Digimon and the creatures had used Shibumi's algorithm to bond human and Digimon together as partners via the D-Arc Digivice. However, with the progression of the series and the increase in Digimon activity on Earth, escalating from small skirmishes between the Tamers and single to few Digimon (with little to no damage to the Tamer's home city) to more devesating and eventually a massive, city-devastating battle with the "evil" Devas and finally to the full-scale invasion of Tokyo by the D-Reaper, the existence of Digimon eventually became public knowledge.

Digimon Frontier

The Digital World of Digimon Frontier is divided into ten regions, each one representative of one of the world's ten elements - Flame, Light, Ice, Wind, Thunder, Earth, Wood, Water, Steel and Darkness. A massive network of train tracks criss-cross the planet, with a terminal in each region, allowing the train-like Digimon, the Trailmon, to ferry passengers from one region to the next. The most distinguishing feature of this Digital World is the existence of "Fractal Code" - the "command code" for the data that forms the Digital World, possessed by everything, from individual Digimon to masses of land. Fractal Code is usually hidden, but once it is uncovered, it can be "digitized," which in turn "unlocks" the data of the item or individual in question, allowing it to be manipulated. In most cases, this leads to the data being absorbed - an action frequently perpetrated by the villains of the series. Conversely, if the Fractal Code is "rendered," it restores the data to its intended shape and form and "locks" it back into place. If a Digimon has their Fractal Code scanned, but their data is not absorbed, then it will reconfigure itself into a Digi-Egg, which then transports itself to the Village of Beginnings, where, after being tended by Swanmon, it will hatch out into a new Baby Digimon and start its life over again.

In ancient times, the Digital World was wracked by a massive war between the human-type and beast-type Digimon. It was then that the angel Digimon, Lucemon, appeared and brought the war to an end, leading to a period of peace. Lucemon, however, eventually grew corrupted, becoming a tyrannical ruler, prompting the emergence of ten great Legendary Warriors who embodied the ten elements. After a mighty battle, the ten Legndary Warriors were able to defeat Lucemon and imprisoned him in the "Dark Area" deep within the center of the Digital World.

Passing on into the realm of legend themselves and leaving powerful "spirits" embodying their elements behind, the ten warriors were succeeded by a trinity of angelic Digimon known as the "Celestial Digimon" - Seraphimon, Ophanimon and Cherubimon. The group was not a harmonious one, unfortunately - the beast-type Cherubimon disagreed with many of the human-type Seraphimon and Ophanimon's policies and made the argument one of the beast versus human. Mistakenly believing that the two human-types planned to betray him, the despairing Cherubimon found himself overtaken by the dark aura of Lucemon and was transformed into a virus form. The evil Cherubimon then led the beast-type Digimon in a campaign against the human types, ultimately capturing Ophanimon and forcing Seraphimon into a regenerative coma.

To save the Digital World, Ophanimon called upon children from Earth to merge with the spirits of the Legendary Warriors and become Digimon themselves to help free Cherubimon from Lucemon's influence. The new Legendary Warriors were eventually successful in freeing Cherubimon, but Lucemon, undeterred, soon had enough power to consume the fractal code of the entire Digital World and destroy its moons and then began to plan his conquest of Earth as well. In the last battle to save what remained of both worlds, the Legendary Warriors defeated Lucemon and the Digital World and the Digimon on it, were restored.

This particular Digital World is also orbited by three Digital Moons, each named after the world's three rulers and each one a different color - the blue Seraphimoon, the yellow Ophanimoon and the red Cherubimoon. At least two of the Digital Moons are inhabited, the Seraphimoon having a population of Starmon, Meteormon,\ and Burgermon, in their various Digivolutionary forms/stages. The Ophanimoon, surrounded by hazy clouds of yellow dust, is home to a Rebirth Village (similar to the Village of Beginnings in the Digital World), where new Digimon are hatched from Digi-Eggs and Digimon whose data have been destroyed can be reborn and reprogrammed as new Digi-Eggs.

Digimon Savers/Data Squad

In the Digimon Savers (Dub: Data Squad) universe, few people are aware of Digital World's existence. DATS - Digital Accident Tactics Squad (Digimon Data Squad), a secret government organization, is the one in charge of trying to avoid, prevent and clean up any damage or attacks that Digimon cause in the Real World. Many of the Tamers are DATS members. However, many Digimon in the Digital World hate most humans due to a massive attempted genocide of Digimon that happened ten years ago, caused by a group of renegade humans and Gizumon working for Akihiro Kurata, who invaded the Digital World and tried to destroy its inhabitants without mercy. A large part of the Digital World appears to be ruled by Merukimon, one of the Olympus Twelve gods, but not all Digimon are under his rule or even agree with it. It is said that there exists a "God" that oversees the Digital World and is called "Yggdrasil", which Merukimon mentioned in Episode 24. Yggdrasil (King Drasil in the dub) is served by the Royal Knights of the Digital World, a group of powerful and legendary Mega Level warrior Digimon.

Also in the Digital World, there are some floating land masses, carnivorous plants, a city mounted on the sides of a canyon and an abandoned research center. There is also a Holy Capital that is on the back of ElDradimon.

Digimon Xros Wars

In Digimon Xros Wars the Digital World is said to exist ages ago and just with mankind's recent technological advances, the connection between both worlds became possible. Due to a unknown phenomenon, the Digital World was fragmented into 108 different areas called "Zones". A group of Digimon sacrificed themselves trying to prevent the Digital World from being torn apart and their spirits reside into the Digimemories scattered across the zones.

Each Zone contained a Code Crown that bestowed ownership of its respective zone to its possession and whoever managed to reunite all of them would have the right to reshape the Digital World in their own image. During the first half of the anime series, the teams of Xros Heart and Blue Flare fought against the Bagra Army and each other, fought for the Code Crowns. However, the Bagra Army emerged victorious, collecting all 108 Code Crowns, as its leader, Bagramon, merged all the Code Crowns to reformat the Digital World into a realm divided into seven kingdoms, each ruled by a Digimon Death General under his command.

Digital Monster X-Evolution

Digital Monster X-Evolution (also called Digimon X-Evolution) is a movie that is independent of any anime series. It also presented in the X-Pendulum, being divided into three Terminals named after the Norns and represent the three portions of time:

  • Urd - A volcanic wasteland that represents the past. It is where Dinosaur and Dragon Digimon live.
  • Verdandi - A grassland environment that represents the present. It is where Beast, Bird, and other types of Digimon live.
  • Skuld - A Futuristic urban environment. It is where the Machine and Insect Digimon live.

There was a Digital World that existed prior to the one that appears in Digimon X-Evolution. It was cultivated and populated with Digimon by the intelligent computer Yggdrasil. Digital World grew in size and in the numbers of Digimon to where Yggdrasil could no longer manage the load, and the "Digital Hazard" occurred, an event which was setting in motion the destruction of the Digital World. Yggdrasil responded by initiating "Project Ark," a template for deleting the Digital World's excess data. The first phase of the project was to kill all Digimon except the few that Yggdrasil had chosen to be its servants. These select Digimon were relocated to a new Digital World that Yggdrasil had created. However, a small percentage of the Digimon left in the original Digital World survived Project Ark by developing an "X-Antibody." This antibody gave the Digimon immunity from the Project. The X-Antibody had the additional effect of changing the Digimon's physical attributes and making them stronger. These "X" Digimon then traveled to the new Digital World on their own. When Yggdrasil detected their presence, he sent the Royal Knights--the aforementioned Digimon servants—to destroy them. By the time frame that is the setting of Digimon X-Evolution, the X-Digimon are under frequent attack from the Royal Knights.

Entering the Digital World

Each anime series has a different way for Digimon, humans, and other beings to cross back and forth through the Real and Digital World.

Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02

In Digimon Adventure, transit to the Digital World was possible only via a preexisting gateway. The gateways were unlocked with the use of Digivices, pocket-sized devices that assisted in this task and in helping the Chosen Children's partner Digimon Evolve during battle. Other methods of going to the Digital World were possible but these were only rarely used in the series. The exact mechanics for how the portals open are unknown, but in Digimon Adventure 02 it was shown that they could be sealed so that nothing could cross them.[5]

In the Digimon Adventure movie that was released prior to the start of the series, there was no explanation for how a gateway between Digital World and the Real World opened. All that was shown was that for a brief period Digimon could freely travel across the portal.

Digimon Adventure 02 introduced "Digital Gates," programs built into computers which allow access to the Digital World. The precise origins of the programs are unclear, but they are activated by D-3 Digivices, the version of Digivice that was used in this series. The original Digivice cannot be used to open the Digital Gates, but if a Digital Gate program has already been opened the person wielding the original Digivice can still travel to the Digital World. Digital Gates are capable of appearing on computers randomly.

In the second Digimon adventure movie, Our War Game!, a Digimon named Tsumemon was able to infiltrate into the wires comprising the Internet. In the sequel film to Our War Game!, Revenge of Diablomon, an evolved form of the same Digimon broke apart its data and materialized out of the Internet onto Earth via cellphones.

Digimon Tamers

Humans still required some form of portal to access the Digital World in Digimon Tamers. Unlike previous series, it was not necessary for a Tamer to use their Digivice to access a gateway. They appeared randomly on Earth; in the case of the Tamers featured in the series a portal was found in an abandoned building.[6]

Tamers' random portals cannot transport humans back to Earth from Digital World. For this purpose a computer program named "Ark" was used.[7] It materialized in the Digital World as a vessel which the Tamers boarded to Bio-Emerge in the Real World.[8]

One man, Goro Mizuno (alias "Shibumi"), had his consciousness projected into the Digital World when he entered into a coma after being in a car accident. His body could be seen in the Digital World and he could speak but he was transparent and otherwise immaterial.[9] How he could do this was never explained.

Digimon Frontier

Traveling to and from the Digital World in Frontier is accomplished via the use of Trailmon, Digimon that are literally sentient trains. The railways of this Digital World traverse dimensions as well as landscapes; the Trailmon station located on Earth is situated beneath Tokyo's Shibuya station (an actual location). This station is known only to Digimon and the humans that are summoned there by them. However, the station is integrated into the main systems of the Shibuya, and is accessible through the normal station’s elevator.

Frontier also had a case of a consciousness being projected into the Digital World. In this case the victim was Koichi Kimura, who seemingly died after falling down a flight of stairs. However, Koichi was a DigiDestined and his consciousness fought alongside his comrades. His manifestation in Digital World was substantial, but his actual body could feel nothing. Upon deletion in the Digital World, his consciousness returned to his body where the other DigiDestined were able to witness his revival after an unsuccessful attempt at defibrillation.

Digimon Savers

In Digimon Savers, Digimon travel between worlds using portals called Digital Gates. DATS can also create Digital Gates using a machine, which are used to send the Digitama of the rogue Digimon back to the Digital World. Human transfer to the Digital World is also possible and is called a Digital Dive.

Digimon Xros Wars

In Digimon Xros Wars humans are still required to use portals and the exact details are not known at this time. When the main characters first enter the Digital World in episode one it seems to be through a disruption in the wall between the Digital World and the real world resulting in a portal forming with the help of the Xros Loader digivice.

Places in the Digital World

As stated by Gennai from Digimon Adventure, the reason why the Digital World has both primitive and modern things is due to the data that has been deleted in the Real World. For example, if a person were to delete a construction project and shut it down for good, that data would be sent to the Digital World and the construction project would continue to build there.

Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02

File Island

File Island is the place where the Chosen Children of Digimon Adventure first arrived. The island is located a little off the coast of the Server Continent. The names of most of the places on the island are never revealed in the anime, but are based on the game Digimon World which also takes place on File Island.

The various places on File Island are:

Name of place Description
Back Dimension
Beetle Land A breeding area for insect Digimon.
Coela Beach Agumon first Evolved into Greymon to fight Shellmon in this location.
Dragon's Eye Lake Where the Chosen Children spent their first night, and the place were Gabumon first Evolved into Garurumon to fight Seadramon. The lake contains a small island which has a derelict streetcar on it.
Drill Tunnel A tunnel under ground and is a faster way to cross over to another part of file island.
Factorial Town A factory were things are built and the then are taken apart again. Andromon is the operator of the factory. Where Tentomon first Evolved into Kabuterimon.
File City A sprawling metropolis. One of the few areas of civilization on File Island.
Fossil Canyon A deep canyon, home to various Dinosaur Digimon.
Freezeland An icy tundra that is constantly below freezing and where there is almost always snow on the ground. It also contains some boiling hot springs, which serve as excellent spas. There are also randomly placed refrigerators (none of which are powered since the outside temperature is already so cold), some of which contain food such as eggs. It's unclear where exactly the food comes from. Tai and Matt each ended up here after being separated from the others and each other when Devimon split them up. Its landmark is the Ice Sanctuary.
Gear Savannah An almost endless stretch of grassland, broken up only by an occasional large gear or wayward telephone pole protruding from the ground. The Savannah lies between Mount Mihirashi and the Yokomon Village.
Geko Swamp Home of File Island's Gekomon.
Great Canyon Izzy ended up here after being separated from the others by Devimon. Its landmark is the Temple of the Digivice, where a Centarumon resides. The temple is ancient, and filled with mazes, ancient writings, and booby-traps.
Infinity Mountain The central point of File Island; few Digimon live on it. It is one of the largest and tallest mountains in the Digital World. Its peak is well above the cloud line, and is constantly covered in snow. Devimon took residence on the mountain top, after he found the Black Gears within it. The first visit marked Gomamon's first Evolution into Ikkakumon. The second visit, when the Chosen Children fought Devimon, marked Angemon's first appearance and Devimon's defeat. The mountain is also home to a Unimon that assists the Chosen Children in the fight against the Dark Masters.
Misty Trees A patch of woods that is very misty all the time. It's always damp and wet because of the misty environment.
Mount Mihirashi Across the Gear Savannah from the Pyokomon Village is a mountain that's a source of the village's water. A Meramon lives there. The mountain is actually a volcano, whose warm temperatures heat up the village's water supply to near boiling before it flows down to the village. The high temperatures help kill off germs in the water, and make it safe to drink.
Native Forest A source of greenery on File Island, served as the ideal place for Devimon's trap. The place is sometimes known for weakening Holy-type Digimon.
Overdell A massive cemetery, home to the Bakemon. Jou and Sora ended up here after being separated from the others by Devimon.
Village of Beginnings
(AKA Primary Village)
Where Digimon are born. The Digitama and newly born Digimon are guarded vigilantly by an Elecmon. The landscape here consists of large green fields, huge stuffed building blocks the size of buildings, trees with toys and stuffed animals hanging from their branches, and large, soft, spongy, hills that are fun to bounce on.
Sewers The sewers lead from the Factorial Town to the vending machine field. File Island's Numemon live in the sewers due to their preference to dark and wet spaces.
Trash Mountain A mountain made up of nothing but trash.
Tropical Jungle The place where the Chosen Children first arrived. Mimi ended up here again after being separated from the others by Devimon. The jungle, in addition to being home to a wide variety of plant life, also has a large number of erratically placed street and traffic signs. Some of the trees are actually hollow, and serve as camouflaged shelters for Digimon who are seeking to avoid attacks.
Vending Machine Field A field of erratically placed vending machines, none of which actually work or contain any food or beverages. The machines are nothing more than hollow shells. Numemon often like to hide inside the machines during the day, since it is close to the sewers and the jungle, and act as dark shelters to take refuge in.
Toy Town The place where Palmon first Evolved into Togemon. A Monzaemon takes care of broken toys here.
Yokomon Village Nearby is Mount Mihirashi, the home of Meramon. Where Piyomon first Evolved into Birdramon. The village sits next to a large lake, where a half-sunken cruise liner can be seen protruding from the waters. In times of crisis or attack, the Pyokomon seek shelter in the ship. The Pyokomon live inside small thatched huts. The village is renowned for its wells of clean and healthy drinking water.

Server Continent

Server Continent was the place where most of events in Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02 occurred. Server is one of the main continents of the Digital World. It has two distinct regions, a large desert and a forest.

Name of place Description
Colosseum A Roman-like Colosseum with a soccer field in the center. Where Joe found his Crest of Sincerity (Dub: Reliability).
Digitamamon's Diner A Digitamamon and a Vegiemon run this diner. After Jou and Gomamon get separated from the main group, they have a meal at the diner, but are unable to pay when they are informed the diner doesn't take Digital currency, but actually Earth currency. Jou and Gomamon were then forced to work at the diner in order to pay off their debt. However, PicoDevimon kept sabotaging their efforts and causing accidents, forcing them to stay in a continuous state of servitude to pay the debt. When they returned to the diner later in the Adventure series, a town had sprouted up around the diner, but had been abandoned when the forces of the Dark Masters attacked it.

In Adventure 02, the new Chosen Children (Davis, Yolei, and Cody) along with Hikari and Takeru, also ate at the diner, and had a similar incident to the one Jou and Gomamon experienced in which they were unable to pay the bill. Digitamamon once again threatened to have the group work off their debt, but Miyako and a Chosen Child from America, Michael, who had been in the area with his Partner, Betamon, convinced Digitamamon to let them go.

Koromon Village The Pagumon employed by Etemon's Gazimon took over the village and enslaved the resident Koromon in an attempt to trick the DigiDestined into believing that the Koromon had left the town and the Pagumon had moved in. After trying to appear friendly, the Pagumon kidnapped T.K.'s Partner, who was in Tokomon form at the time, and cage him up with the town's Koromon in a cave behind a nearby waterfall. Tokomon and the Koromon were eventually rescued by the others, and Tai found his Crest of Courage on one of the cave's walls. The town is also renowned for its spas and hot springs, making it an ideal vacation spot for both humans and Digimon.
Piximon's Home Camouflaged with Piximon's magic in the desert, this is where Piximon trained the DigiDestined after rescuing them from a Kuwagamon.
Shogun Gekomon's Castle A feudal castle home to Shogun Gekomon as well as his Gekomon and Otamamon servants. While Mimi was residing there, the castle was remodeled into a European one.
The Amusement Park An abandoned amusement park that sits next to a lake and forested area. It includes a ferris wheel, roller coasters, carnival rides, and game booths. Even though it has fallen into disuse, the rides are still operational. Takeru "T.K." Takaishi, and Patamon first encountered DemiDevimon here. Some Mushrooms of Forgetfulness grow there.
The Castle A European-style building on steep mountain which seems to defy the laws of physics on the inside. Gravity seems to be undefined, and it is possible to walk on walls and ceilings, and the castle appears to be the merging point for multiple dimensions in time and space. It was where the DigiDestined's Digimon were created with the help of Gennai and his kind. Piedmon seized the castle with an army of Guardromon and Mekanorimon while attempting to destroy the Digi Eggs, but Gennai was able to take the eggs and escape. The castle was relented to Myotismon later as he used it as a training center for his invasion forces before they left for Earth. The castle also contains a large set of doors which act as a portal between the Digital World and multiple other dimensions, including Earth's. The doors are accessed by a keypad that uses Digimon cards placed in certain positions and in a certain order over the keypad to determine which dimension the door accesses. Myotismon and his forces went through the doors to invade Earth, and the DigiDestined later followed prior the castle's destruction.
The Pyramid An upside down pyramid, resmbling an inverted version of the Great Pyramids of Egypt which served as Etemon's base. Datamon was held captive there. Though it looks ancient on the outside, it is technologically complex inside, and was the center of Etemon's digital network, as well as a large number of advanced science and medical labs. The pyramid has an advanced security systems of camers, lasers, and even force shields. The Pyramid was destroyed by a warp in dimensional space that temporarily sent Tai from the Digital World to Earth. It also holds a secret room, where Datamon was holding Sora and Biyomon hostage.
The Giga House A giant house, large enough that the DigiDestined were comparably the size of insects. Everything within is proportionally large. Appropriately, the house is swarming with human-sized insectoid Digimon. It is here that the cast of Digimon Adventure 02 are formally introduced to Arukenimon and encounter Mummymon for the first time.

Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01

Folder Continent

Folder is another main continent of the Digital World. This is where the V-Tamer story line takes place. Folder is first mentioned on the Digimon Pendulum.

Name of place Description
Daemon's Castle Daemon's headquarters.
Dino Valley Taichi and Zeromaru fought Triceramon here.
Holy Angel Castle Lord Holy Angemon resides here. It is also where a Leomon trains his army.
Hospitown A hospital-themed town where a Jijimon works as a doctor.
Metal Factory Taichi and Zeromaru first encountered Neo Saiba here.
Myotismon's Castle A Myotismon lives here.
Net Ocean The large body of water that surrounds the entire Digital World. Formerly ruled by Lord Whamon and now ruled by Gon the Gomamon. Taichi and Zeromaru fought Lord Marine the MarineDevimon here.
Star City A Starmon is the leader of this city.

Digimon Tamers

The areas of the Digital World here are these six planes:

  • Desert Plane: This was the earliest plane in the Digital World and the lowest of them all.
  • Clockwork Plane: A plane of clouds and clockwork.
  • Black and White Plane: A black and white plane with a warped town.
  • Forest Plane: An area of forests, lakes, and rivers.
  • Water Plane: An area consisting of water and underground caves.
