Instead of reacting with anger or depression, he understands that they tried their best and were simply out-fought. Realizing Xros Heart's team has returned, Dorbickmon Xros Opens to have aid the , in destroying Mikey and the rest with their magma. The Fusion Fighters and Blue Flare follow, where Nene is forced to reveal her reasons for joining AxeKnightmon and Deckerdramon chooses an army to join. Oh, and the marginally relevant assistants are main characters from the previous five seasons and much of the episode is just them going around beating up Vamdemons with their Digimon and just being awesome and Masaru just goes One Punch Man on everything and I can't believe that happened in an actual episode that was so. Sheer nostalgic awesomeness as the Vamdemon battle is, it does raise some monstrously awkward continuity snarls and fridge logic moments. The D Xros Loader is an essential item that is capable of transferring power to Digimon by means of 'DigiXros'. Tagiru accepting his defeat graciously is a genuine surprise.
Despite the Fusion Fighters' efforts, the Zone begins to collapse, and Christopher, the holder of the Zone's Code Crown, abandons its residents. Ryouma turns out to be Worst Hunter and Hunts one of the key components of the thing that Hunts Quartzmon. Lastly, and I'll admit as much as anyone that this is more a question of my own taste than any deep storytelling problems, but isn't Quartzmon basically a shill for how powerful Bagramon was? Sounds like a Zero Two-style nerfing right there. Meanwhile, Christopher arrives and launches an attack against the Bagra Army while calling out the first Dark General,. They arrive in the middle of a attack on the , led by. Tactimon challenges them into a no-holds barred match, and though the Fusion Fighters rise as the victors, interferes at the last moment to take all the Code Crowns for himself and successfully wins control over the Digital World. Followed by and , Mikey rushes to find the source of the voice, discovering a small digital creature and a red before all three are transported to the.
Their investigation leads them to an abandoned power plant, where a phone rings and Kaoru hears a voice calling for help in the other side. It makes no sense to cloak honourable and understandable intentions with ethically dubious alternatives, especially considering the kind of crowd it did end up attracting. It's perhaps surprising that when you look at what each different aspect tried to accomplish, it's the crossover element that falls short of expectations. Due to the appearance of rival and enemy Digimon, the Digital World has been driven into a state of 'Xros Wars', a large-scale war with battles like those of the Sengoku period. When out with his friends Akari Hinomoto and Zenjirou Tsurugi one day, he hears a voice calling out for help. Tactimon gives up the Zone as lost when the Fusion Fighters succeed over AncientVolcanomon once and for all.
MadLeomon attacks again as the children try to depart, and when Shoutmon fights to rescue them again, Mikey realizes Shoutmon's true, virtuous intentions. Tagiru loses Best Hunter to Ryouma, but handles it with previously unseen maturity and poise. The Digimon, , invites him to watch as Ryouma and his Hunter teammates fight a , which escapes. Actually, if you wanted personality and character during the big crossover sequence. Mikey and Shoutmon encounter , saving him from a mob of Dinosaur and Dragon Digimon led by.
Ryouma's willingness to kick Ren's ass is an obvious note; Ren's surprise at this is just funny. When they are separated from the group, Mikey and Reapmon come to an understanding as Reapmon reveals his connection to the Sand Zone, but the Fusion Fighters' Digimon fall prey to a spell of member. Yeah, that'll win the good doctor over more! They get locked, and Kaoru follows a light furhter inside the plant. Were they mind-wiped when they went back? For Frontier and Savers, only Izumi, Koichi, Touma and Yoshino are absent, so it's surprisingly thorough, unfulfilling as these appearances may be. Kaoru lends her power to , the one who called her, and he saves them both, and asks , the ghost, to forgive Airu. Taichi and Daisuke come from the same universe at different times, yet nothing of Taichi's experience bleeds over into Zero Two.
The third Great Gathering in the Hunters series is a pretty big deal. As Tactimon makes a personal appearance, Blue Flare and Midnight team up to wring information out of the Zone's defender,. Add in later appearances, and that means all twelve Digimon from Adventure and Zero Two appear, and all of the important ones from Tamers show up. Kaoru awakes in DigiQuartz and decides to rescue the trapped being who was calling her. Using the item's power to perform a Zone Transfer, Mikey's end up in the , surrounded by a vast ocean.
Following her, the boys stumble on Airu, and Kaoru vanishes. Reapmon realizes the meaning of strength that those in his past tried to impart and sacrifices himself to save the Fusion Fighters, becoming reborn as. He was chosen as a 'General' to control it. Because he's timeless and never stops moving. There's so much time spent introducing everybody and explaining everything to the Xros Wars kids that there's no personality. Digimon Xros Wars features Taiki Kudou, a soccer-loving middle schooler who will always go out of his way to help people in need. Separated from the others, Mikey befriends the wandering researcher and returns in time to save his friends.
They manage to defeat only to draw the attention of the Zone's command,. Using the power of a strange device called a Xros Loader, Taiki manages to save Shoutmon's life, but is pulled into the Digital World alongside Akari and Zenjirou. Taiki and Shoutmon form a Digimon Army using the D Xros Loader and battle against formidable opponents with DigiXros. Analyzing this as a Hunters episode gives us a massive info dump, an important development in the main character, and a nasty plot twist that sets us up for a thrilling finale that gets Tagiru his big moment. Ryouma's big turn at the end was a fantastic plot twist ruined by too much telegraphing two episodes ago and an attempt to counter that with an emotional backstory last time. They are saved by , the creature they rescued earlier, who claims Mikey as his. It's kind of a big thing for him, and both the fight with Astamon and Tagiru's reaction to it were big moments that deserved more time.
If we're going to remember this episode for returning characters, it's actually the Xros Heart reunion tour that stands out. Kaoru awakes in her tent, and answers the phone, from where she hears Patamon thanking her. The Sparking Taiki and Kiriha! Inside, the Fusion Fighters discover the legendary , powerful artifacts which they use to fend off a fresh attack from Neptunemon's forces. The ghost using Cho-Hakkaimon makes a water wheel fall in the hole Kaoru is. And seemingly still in the same jogging outfit she wore during the Bagramon battle. An evil group of Digimon, known as the Bagra Army, are determined to get their hands on the Code Crown.
Meanwhile, Mikey, who was helping the baseball club, is exhausted after winning the championship. Also, Grani shows up here even though his part in creating Dukemon Crimson Mode involved dying, and if he was taken before the finale of Tamers to make this work, then it raises serious questions about whether the two had taken a trip while fighting D-Reaper, while having no impact on said fight. The Fusion Fighters act to right this shared wrong. You see the dilemma here. The nudity seems to be an eyeful for Nene and Akari though. The clockmaker's explanation is rushed and sloppy, but it's at least thorough.
