When Apocalymon was screaming, he self-mutilated himself before the kids (Hence Mimi covering her eyes). However, he regenerated with green bloodstains on him still. Despite his treatment in the dub, Apocalymon was more disturbed with a sense of vigilante justice for his pain. He also referred to himself as "We", likely as he had no one to talk too in the void and that he was created from the data of Digimon who were wipeout for being unable to evolve and exist in the next age of the Digital World (episode 1.53 "Now Apocalymon Part 1").

The typical story pattern of Digimon has gone like this: Seasons 1 and 2 occurred in the Digital World, then the fighting moved over to the real world, then ended in the Digital World. Season 3 was the first to invert the formula by beginning in the real world, moving to the Digital World, and ended in the real world then season 4 returned to the basic formula of starting in the Digital world and ending in the real world, though ending much sooner compared to what came before.

Writer Chiaki Konaka, a drew a lot of inspiration from, Shin Seiki Evangerion (1995) when writing Digimon Season 3 (known as Tamers in Japan). Konaka modeled WarGrowlmon after berserker Evangelion-01. It can be said of comparing the Tamers to the Evangelion pilots: Takato to Shinji (shy kid), Rika to Askua (temperamental red-head), and Henri to Rei (though only in hair color and acting mature).

Alice, the gothic granddaughter of Rob "Dolphin" McCoy of the Monster Makers, is dead. Chiaki Konaka himself noted that after he wrote the script for the episode, he thought it that "Alice had stopped being this world". He only notes it as a possibility, so it is deliberately ambiguous and up to the viewer to draw their own conclusions. However, Dolphin's forlorn stares at Alice's picture do seem to suggest something (episode 3.44 "The Messenger")

Makura is the name of a Deva of the West, symbolized by the monkey. Makuramon's shapeshifting powers are a wink of sort towards Kong, the Monkey King of the Chinese "Journey Westward" which was inspiration of shows like Dragonball, Monkey Magic, and few others. Makuramon's roles were from Kaorwu/Tabris of Evangelion, pretty much to fit in with the kids to further his own plans. Mush censoring was used in this episode, especially to the Tokyo Capital Building, where Hypnos is located, after Makuramon overloaded the Hypnos mainframe (episode 3.23 "A World Apart").

Lopmon/Antylamon was a guy in the original version. However, got a gender change not only for the pink colouring, but his accent (Hein Japanese) lacked any gender-defining words. Besides different colour schemes, Lopmon and Terriermon are different in mouth lining (Lopmon's is a upside-"V" to make him more bunnyish, and Terriermon "2-U"s to give him a puppy-look.) Antira was a Deva who protects the east, who is symbolized by the Rabbit (episode 3.33 "Rabbit Transit").

The mark on Guilmon's body, which glow on Megidramon, is called the "Digital Hazard", much like the hazard sign of a nuclear meltdown. As explained in another continuity, Digimon Chronicle. The Digital Hazard causes a chain of events that destroy the entire Digital World when it has overloaded capacity. Takato's dreams scenes are much like Shinji's in Evangelion, but Shinji's had most of the Evangelion cast. A new type of Digimon Evolution, Human + Digimon (episode 3.35 "Give a Little Bit").

In the middle of the second season, Jeff Nimoy and Bob Buchholz, whom were largely helming the English adaptation of the series, grew unhappy with some unspecified decisions that had been made regarding it. Colleen O'Shaughnessey left the show shortly after (though she eventually did return). Following their departure, Wendee Lee and 'Bob Marx (I)' had to do fill in voices for the characters that Colleen and Jeff voiced (2.42 "Digimon World Tour Part 3").

In the original, Joe's brother, who is with Sora's father, is not Jim from season 1. It is like this in original. Jim's name is Shin, and Joe's brother is named Shou (episode 2.33 "A Chance Encounter").

This introduces the mythological aspect of Kyoto, which was originally the capital of Japan, but now it is a spiritual symbol in Japan's Shinto legends. The most Noted of Asian myth are four Saint Beasts: Suzaku: Crimson phoenix of the South, Genbu: Dark tortoise of the north, Byakko: the white tiger of the west, and Seiryuu: the blue dragon of the east. These four are linked to the Four Deva Kings of Chinese myth, and they are key figures in season 3's Tamers (but of course, each one is given a different name than those of legend) (episode 2.33 "A Chance Encounter").

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Almost all villains in Digimon Adventure come back at least one more time after the presumed death. Devimon returned in Adventure 02 as a prisoner of the Dark Whirpool. He was released, and took over The Digimon Kaiser's creation Kimeramon. Etemon returned later in the Dark Masters arc, specifically Puppetmon's arc. He returned as MetalEtemon, and was beaten by a recently digivolved Leomon and Zudomon. Myotismon, perhaps the most infamous character when it comes to never dying, returned twice after apparently "dying". Myotismon returned in his own story arc as VenomMyotismon, and then later resurfaced as MaloMyotismon and confirmed that he was behind the events of Adventure 02. Machinedramon, the third dark master, also returned in the video game Anode/Cathode Tamer, where he merged with a dying Kimeramon in order to become Millenniummon. Devimon, Etemon, Myotismon, and Piedmon were all revived by Millenniummon in the game. Diaboromon, the main villain of Digimon Adventure: Our War Game! (2000) , also resurfaced later in the movie Digimon: Revenge of Diaboromon (2001). The only villains to officially die and never come back are MetalSeadramon, Puppetmon, and Apocalymon.
