|It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Digital World (DIGIMON). (Discuss)|
This version of the Digital World (デジタルワールド Dejitaru Wārudo?) is the setting for Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure 02, Digimon Adventure tri., Digimon Adventure: Anode/Cathode Tamer, Digimon Adventure 02: Tag Tamers, Digimon Adventure 02: D1 Tamers, Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01, Digimon World, Digimon Digital Card Battle, Digimon World 2, Digimon World Re:Digitize, Decode, Encode, Digimon Super Rumble, the Digimon virtual pet, and the Digimon Collectible Card Game. It is referred to as Digimon World (デジモンワールド Dejimon Wārudo?) in V-Tamer, World, and sometimes in the Japanese version of Adventure, and is sometimes called DigiWorld in the English dub of Adventure and 02.
The Digital World is a vast world created by God and ruled by Yggdrasill. It is primarily subject to the law of the jungle, and its "Central Dogma" normally precludes the existence of incomplete Jogreses like Chaosmon. It is thought that its managing system is responsible for rendering threats like Belphemon Sleep Mode dormant,, and it is protected from external threats through the Internet by Digimon like Eaglemon. Despite this, it still contains Digimon like Clockmon who are powerful enough to upset the balance of the Digital World, causing it to collapse, and it is rumored that the United States of America is covertly conducting research and development on Digimon in order to take possession of the dimension.
Several species of powerful Digimon have survived since the Digital World's Genesis (創世記 Sousei-ki?), and some of their descendants inherited the ability to perform "Armor Digivolution". In the modern era, the Digital World is warming, and among the effects are the expansion of Mammothmon's super-compressed data, and the opening of the once-icebound Ice-Snow Area.
The Server Continent (サーバ大陸 Sāba-tairiku?) was the setting for the Etemon arc and the beginning of the Myotismon arc of Digimon Adventure, as well as most of Digimon Adventure 02. Server is one of the largest continents of the Digital World, and has two distinct regions, a large desert and a forest.
A Roman-style Colosseum with a soccer field in the center. This is where Joe found his Crest of Reliability and where Agumon dark digivolved into SkullGreymon. SkullGreymon managed to trash the Colosseum pretty spectacularly as he killed Etemon's evil Greymon and defeated the DigiDestineds' partner digimon.
Located near the coast on Server, logically by the shore closest to File Island, is a desert (砂漠 Sabaku?) that was once controlled by Etemon. Etemon's Dark Network runs the entirety of the desert via a system of cables, and helps Etemon maintain control of it. The Colosseum is located in this desert, and is one of many structures and areas in the desert controlled by the Etemon or his underlings. Somewhere in the desert is located an upside-down pyramid, that seems to serve as the Etemon's home base. This pyramid also houses an imprisoned Datamon, an enemy of Etemon who was forced to become Etemon's webmaster. When Datamon forced the bulk of Etemon's Dark Network to become unstable and grow uncontrollably, Etemon was fused to it and the pyramid was completely destroyed. Like the pyramid, most of the structures in Etemon's desert were either destroyed or suffered some form of major damage, mainly due to the Chosen Children running amok.
A cruise ship (豪華客船 Goukakyakusen?, lit. "luxury liner") commanded by Kokatorimon in Digimon Adventure. It sails the desert and is connected to the Dark Network through a wire in its back, serving as a set of covert eyes and ears for Etemon. The crew consists of many Numemon.
The ship is mainly white with many red and blue srtipes across it, and a red and black hull. The hull is red and blue in the PSP game. The ship's deck has an wooden floor and two pools with blue tiles and a metallic ladder. Near one of the pools are two white beach chairs with a circular white table with a red and white parasol between them. The deck is connected to the rest of ship by a large white metallic door.
Inside it has clock in front of a staircase covered in gold, with a statue of a human-like figure wielding a torch standing on the top. The staircase leads to the living room, which has a painting above a fireplace, many green square table with a single leg and four chairs around each table, two sofas in front of each other in near the fireplace, and multiple large windows.
The ship's buffet room has white walls with gold frames and baseboard, a blue floor, a navy ceiling, and a large table with a white tablecloth and multiple pltes of food in it. The ship also has multiple bedrooms with green walls, red floor, and beds covered in red sheets and a pillow on each bed, green curtains and a red chair besides one of the beds. The rooms' bathroom has a metallic sliding door with translucent glass on it, green walls, blue floor, a shower, and a hatchway in one of the walls, which leads to the outer corridors. The bedrooms are connected by a corridor with a purple floor, brown walls, and a gray ceiling with many lamps. The bedrooms' doors are wooden with golden door knobs and number plates. The outer corridors have white walls, wooden floor, wooden ceiling, wood-framed windows belonging to the bedrooms, and many windows leading to outside the ship. Another room has purple metal walls, and is one of the places where Numemon receive orders. The captain's room has a computer connected to the Dark Network, and multiple golden pipe communicators, which Kokatorimon uses to order his Numemon minions.
In Digimon Adventure (PSP), the bedroom where the DigiDestined arrive and the deck have save points. Some bedrooms have item capsules, and one of the bedrooms has a key to the deck's door.
When sailing the desert, the ship comes across the DigiDestined, who ask the Numemon to allow them to rest inside it. While Tai, Joe, Koromon, and Gomamon are by the pool, Matt, Izzy, T.K., and their Digimon in the buffet room, and Sora and Mimi are in the shower, Kokatorimon petrifies the boys' Digimon, takes their Crests, puts the boys to fry by the sun. When he goes after Sora and Mimi, the girls escape with their Digimon from the shower before being even able to get dressed. Kokatorimon corners them by the deck, where Birdramon and Togemon easily take on him. As both the Numemon and the kids escape from the cruise ship, Kokatorimon chases the DigiDestined with the ship, until he accidentally hits a giant cactus, which throws the ship in the air. The ship's distance from the ground causes its Dark Network cable to break, producing an explosion that destroys the ship.
A Digitamamon and a Vegiemon run this diner. After Joe 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 (American dollars rather than Japanese yen, in the original version). Joe and Gomamon were there forced to work at the diner in order to pay off their debt. However, DemiDevimon kept sabotaging their efforts and causing accidents, forcing them to stay in a continuous state of servitude to pay the debt. They were eventually rescued by Matt and Gabumon, who convinced Digitamamon and Vegiemon to let them go. 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.
Three years later, the new DigiDestined (Davis, Yolei, and Cody) along with Kari and T.K., also ate at the diner, and had a similar incident to the one Joe and Gomamon experienced in which they were unable to pay the bill (the diner had switched back to Digital currency, and they only had Earth money to pay with). Digitamamon once again threatened to have the group work off their debt, but Mimi and a DigiDestined from America, Michael, who had been in the area with his Partner, Betamon, convinced Digitamamon to let them go and to be kinder to customers in the future. Digitamamon later opens a noodle shop in Digi-China Town with a Tapirmon.
A village of Koromon located on the outer area of the continent on the east. 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.
Camouflaged with Piximon's magic in the desert, this is where Piximon trained the DigiDestined after rescuing them from a Kuwagamon. It is where Matt and Izzy find the Crests of Friendship and Knowledge.
ShogunGekomon's Castle (トノサマゲコモンの城 TonosamaGekomon no Shiro?, lit. "TonosamaGekomon's Castle") is the castle where ShogunGekomon and his Gekomon and Otamamon servants live in Digimon Adventure. During the time that Mimi and Palmon were separated from the group, the Gekomon and Otamamon took her in as their princess for her to help waking up their master, who went into a deep sleep following his lose in Karaoke Match. The castle was later destroyed by the Dark Masters in their quest of conquering the Digital World.
Somewhere outside of Etemon's desert is the entrance to a mysterious galaxy, or maybe even a whole universe, created by a Vademon. It is logical that this universe is some sort of pocket dimension as it seems to be located underground on a unnamed mountain. The entrance to Vademon's universe is guarded by many signs that warn of various kinds of sludge(or poop, in the Japanese version) related traps. Izzy and Tentomon manage to find themselves trapped in Vademon's universe. While the universe is vast, it seems to be less realistic or not bound by all the rules of a normal universe, as the planets seem smaller and easier to blow up, as demonstrated by MegaKabuterimon's Horn Buster attack. Vademon's universe also contains a small thrift store or junk shop with a wooden door leading to the universe. For some reason, Vademon finds poop to be a delectable delicacy.
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. TK and Patamon first encountered DemiDevimon here. Some Mushrooms of Forgetfulness grow there. A large lake, traversable by the swan boat in the park, connects the location to Digitamamon's Restaurant and ShogunGekomon's Castle.
Used by Myotismon in Digimon Adventure, it was where the DigiDestined's Digimon were created as Digi-Eggs 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 later relented to Myotismon.
The castle sits atop a steep mountain and looks European in design, but 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. Myotismon used the castle 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 accesed 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 after the battle with Dokugumon, which destroyed the mountain and eventually the castle itself.
An upside down pyramid, resembling 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 cameras, 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.
A giant house, large enough that the DigiDestined were comparably the size of insects. Everything within is proportionally large. Appropriately, the house is swarmed with human-sized insectoid Digimon. It is here that the cast of Digimon Adventure 02 engages in battle against Arukenimon and Mummymon for the first time.
Forbidden Valley of No Return
The Forbidden Valley of No Return (デスヴァレー Desu Varē?, "Death Valley") is a grey, lifeless, desert area composed of sand and mountains. The Digimon Emperor captured the Digidestined (minus Davis) and sent them to a dark world below the desert. This was where the DigiDestined discovered the identity of the Digimon Emperor. A Deltamon strong enough to crush mountains lives in this area.
Rail Town (ロコモータウン Rokomōtaun?, "Locomotown") is not much of a town per se, but is a vast grassy area covered in Railroad tracks. The tracks are both used for trains and carts propelled by the wind with a sail. After Agumon gets captured by the Digimon Emperor the group heads off to look for him. He escapes on a train and they later travel on one of the carts to chase after Ken. They head south on the tracks and the land goes from grassland to a rocky area with no vegetation. The farther they travel, the more cliffs and mountains appear in the area and the Digi-Egg of Friendship is soon found.
Wild West Town
Wild West Town (西部の町 Seibu no Machi?, lit. "American West Town") is a small town in a rocky, desert region with the aesthetic of a town in the American Old West. It contains a saloon and a jail and it is inhabited by its sheriff, Starmon, and Deputymon.
Forest Of The Gods
The Forest of the Gods (神の森 Kami no Mori?) is an island near the north of the Digital World.
The Folder Continent (フォルダ大陸 Foruda-tairiku?) is surrounded by a harsh environment, and is the only habitat of Veedramon. The Digimon of Folder Continent are different from those of other places.
In V-Tamer, the Digimon of Folder Continent are so strong that File Island Digimon can't compare to them.
Holy Angel Castle
Holy Angel Castle (ホーリーエンジェル城 Hōrī Enjeru-jou?) is the main base for Lord MagnaAngemon and his army of good Digimon.
It contains the main throne-room as well as a Medical Ward containing an ICU (集中治療室?).
The Holy Angel Castle is the subject of a card: Bo-24v.
Demon Castle (デーモン城 Dēmon-jou?) is the main base for Lord Daemon and his army of evil Digimon. After Arcadiamon absorbs him, it becomes Neo Saiba's base. It is claimed that it was once the abode of the Digital World's God.
It contains the main throne-room, a chamber where Arcadiamon's egg was watched over, a medical/science room, and several quarters.
Dragon's Valley (竜の谷 Ryuu no Tani?) is a rocky valley presided over by a waterfall. It is the hiding place of the Solid Earth Tag, which is guarded by Lord Triceramon.
Hospitown (ホスピタウン Hosupitaun?) is a hospital-centric city near the Tree that caters to injured Digimon. It includes Dr. Jijimon's Digimon Hospital, where Zeromaru goes to heal after his fight with Ghoulmon.
Metal Factory is an abandoned factory where Digimon can go to make themselves more powerful by upgrading with cyborg implants. It was shut down by Lord MagnaAngemon, but reopened by Lord Daemon for the use of his army. It is the hiding place of the Tag of Iron, which is guarded by MetalGreymon.
Nightmare Castle is a desolate wasteland where Myotismon rules from an illusory castle.
Star City (スターシティ Sutā Shiti?), the "City where Stars come to visit!", is a small city led by Starmon.

Boot Domain (ブート・ホール Būto Hōru?, lit. "Boot Hole") is a Domain ruled by Leomon.
SCSI Domain (シリアル・ホール Shiriaru Hōru?, lit. "Serial Hole") is a Domain ruled by Hagurumon.
WWW Continent (ＷＷＷ大陆 WWW-tairiku?) is one of the continents of the Digital World.
Spiral Mountain was the centre of the Digital World after being taken over by the Dark Masters. The mountain consisted of four areas (the ocean, the forest, the city, and a dark wasteland) intertwining like a rope, with the Dark Masters' castle at the peak. MetalSeadramon ruled the ocean, Puppetmon ruled the forest, Machinedramon ruled the city, and Piedmon had control over the dark wasteland. When each Dark Master was defeated, its respective area disappeared from the mountain.
Composed of the ocean and ruled by MetalSeadramon. This is the first area they stumbled on after their escape from the Dark Masters through the help of Piximon. It was here where they ran into the same Shellmon that Greymon fought, met Whamon again, and defeated MetalSeadramon. Upon MetalSeadramon's destruction by WarGreymon, the Net Ocean vanished.
While the majority of the bodies of water in the Digital World composed together to create MetalSeadramon's ocean, some smaller bodies remained exempt, one instance being the body of water surrounding the "Manhattan" part of Machinedramon's City(ies).
Composed of forests and ruled by Puppetmon. In the middle of the forest is a house belonging to Puppetmon where Blossomon, Mushroomon, Floramon and Deramon also reside. In that house, Puppetmon controls the forest like moving a section of the forest at will. This is where T.K. tricked Puppetmon and where Tai and Matt fought. After Puppetmon's destruction by MetalGarurumon, it also vanished.
Composed of abandoned buildings and contains some of the world's greatest marvels like the Statue of Liberty and the Colosseum, it is the only civilized part of Spiral Mountain and ruled by Machinedramon. It was here where Kari got sick and where they found Andromon. The city also vanished upon Machinedramon being killed by WarGreymon.
Machinedramon City is located in this area, and, in fact, may be this area.
Composed of a barren wasteland covered in darkness and ruled by Piedmon. It is where Angewomon fought LadyDevimon, the DigiDestined reunited, and Angemon finally digivolved to his Ultimate form. This area vanished after MagnaAngemon sent Piedmon into the Gate of Destiny in the manga where he was blasted into there by WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon in the anime. Upon the Dark Area's destruction, Spiral Mountain disappeared and marked the end of the Dark Masters.
Wall of Fire
The Wall of Fire is a mysterious anomaly that hindered Apocalymon's entrance to the Digital World. He passed through the wall at some point in the past, and his passage warped the fabric of time and space such that time ran much faster in the Digital World than in the Real World, among other effects; this phenomenon was eventually eliminated along with Apocalymon. The origin of the Wall of Fire, or even what lies on the other side, remains unknown.
The Net Ocean (ネットの海 Netto no Umi?) is a large body of water that surrounds the Digital World. It is the birthplace of Digimon, and AncientMermaimon is its guardian goddess, ruling the whole of it and able to handle all water, such as the ocean currents and tidal waves, as if they were its own limbs. It consists of a range of biomes, and is inhabited by various aquatic Digimon.} Some aquatic Digimon were discovered in it. It is where Crabmon dissolved metal data and stuck it to its body, rapidly enhancing its combat ability, and its bottom is the source of Octomon's Digi-Treasure.
In Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01, it was originally protected by Lord Whamon, but after his death that mantle was taken by the Ikkakumon, Gon. The Net Ocean is the hiding place of the Deep Savers Tag, guarded by the MarineDevimon Lord Marine.
In Digimon ReArise, Macchan sometimes travels through the Net Ocean. Leviamon was sealed away in the Net Ocean, though one day was freed by the Vademon, under the instruction of Lucemon, Creepymon, and Barbamon. Before it could rampage and destroy the Digital World it was sent back to the Net Ocean and sealed away once again by Examon and Seraphimon after Gankoomon had convinced the Vademon to open said portal with the Vademon agreeing as they couldn't rule the Digital World if Leviamon destroyed it.
In Digimon Chronicle X, the Dark Web is where Leviamon slept when King Drasil used the X-Program to kill 98% of all Digimon, and is next to the Dark Area. Both the Dark Web and the Dark Area were unaffected by the X-Program due to being on a different layer. Due to how big Leviamon was, no other Digimon attempted to attack it out of fear. Lucemon would later awaken Leviamon in the Dark Web and then cause it to undergo X-Evolution so that it could use Leviamon X in its plan to kill the Royal Knights and destroy every Digital World.
The Ice-Snow Area (氷雪エリア Hyousetsu Eria?) is a place of freezing lands, and was icebound before the Digital World warming. Mammothmon left the area after the Digital World warming melted the barriers, and this is also the place where Leomon trained daily before acquiring power over the cold and digivolving into IceLeomon.
The Royal Base (ローヤルベース Rōyaru Bēsu?) is a mysterious, aerial, covert honey base, inhabited by FanBeemon, Waspmon, CannonBeemon, and TigerVespamon. As an aerial base, it is exposed to danger from every direction, so Waspmon serve as the guards, constantly patrolling the vicinity on the lookout for approaching Digimon and swooping down on any that do, while CannonBeemon serve as the long-range lookout, using the vast range of their arms containers to cover the entire surrounding area. The elite Vespamon also defend the base, and the Vespamon in the top 0.08% are inducted into the covert honey corps, "Royal Commando" and awarded a codename. The FanBeemon are the workers of the base, and since the base is always under construction, they have the duty of carrying home data left on fields of flowers or other vegetation, little by little, to use as raw materials. However, because the base is defended by the Waspmon, CannonBeemon, and Vespamon, making it impossible to approach, the goal of that construction is a mystery at present.
Digital World Academy
The Digital World Academy (デジタルワールド大学 Dejitaru Wārudo Daigaku?, lit. "Digital World University") is where Agumon Expert and Fake Agumon Expert received their doctorates in Digital Monster studies.
Below the thick ice of the Digital World's north pole (北極 Hokkyoku?) are super-ancient ruins where it is said that essential program data which concerns the creation of Digimon is sealed. Because of this, Kentaurosmon guards these ruins.
Ancient Digital World
The details of the ancient Digital World (古代デジタルワールド Kodai Dejitaru Wārudo?) are still shrouded in mystery, but research into Digimon and the Digital World hopes to eventually clarify them. It is currently known that during this time, the powerful Pharaohmon had absolute rule over many areas and their Digimon inhabitants, and decreed the swift construction of many of the mysterious ruins that now dot the Digital World, but in general it was a chaotic era, menaced by terrifying Digimon such as Orochimon and Sangloupmon, and suffering from several major disruptions that brought the Digital World to the very brink of collapse. Fortunately, it was rescued each time by heroes such as Imperialdramon Paladin Mode or the Angel Digimon Shakkoumon and Lucemon, who descended to the Digital World in its most dire moments.
Imperialdramon ended up founding the Royal Knights, who prophecy foretold would assemble at the time of the Digital World's greatest crisis, and Lucemon itself was able to bring about a period of order and harmony, which was brought to an unfortunate end when it reacted to a rebellion by summoning a long, tyrannical period of darkness. This time, the Digital World was rescued from Lucemon by the Ten Legendary Warriors, although only two, AncientGreymon and AncientGarurumon, survived to the end of the crusade in order to seal away Lucemon.
Eastern Digital World
El Dorado (黄金郷 Ougonkyou?, lit: "Golden Land") is said to be protected by multiple sacred barriers. Crowmon and Crowmon (2006 anime) are told to be the Digimon who guide the chosen to "El Dorado", and although it is said that with their guidance the barriers will be released, traditionally, only those who surmount the "Threefold Trials" (三重の試練 Mie no Shiren?) submitted by them will finally arrive at El Dorado, and it is told that those who were not able to endure the trials are dispatched to the Dark Area.
North Bridge Island
The Never World (ネバーランド Nebā-Rando?, lit. "Never-Land") is an island used for imprisoning minds within their memories. It is based on the fictional Neverland.
In Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, the Never World is where Menoa Bellucci's army of Eosmon inter the DigiDestined minds they have seized. This process has their minds reverted to their childhood state and brainwashed into believing they wanted this, so that they can live forever on the island with their Digimon partners in accordance with Menoa's beliefs.
Menoa has Eosmon seize Izzy's mind after he confronts her about being behind Eosmon, but he manages in time to send the Never World's coordinates to Tai. Tai, Agumon, Matt, and Gabumon then travel to the Never World, defeat Eosmon, and free the captive DigiDestined.
