Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru
Gon (ゴン?) is a Gomamon who Tai Kamiya and the group meets after Zeromaru's failed attempt at swimming. After being saved from a Gesomon, he is empowered to grow stronger himself. On Lord Whamon's orders, he brings Tai and Zero to him and witnesses Lord Whamon's death. Now named the protector of the Net Ocean, he aids Tai and Zero's fight with Marine and is heavily damaged in return. After the battle, however, Gon digivolves to Ikkakumon instead of dying. He eventually returns to support Tai in the defense against Neo Saiba.
Whamon is the protector of the Net Ocean, but by the time Daemon's army comes, he is too weak to fight Marine, who invaded his territory. Upon hearing of Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru's arrival, he asks Gon to bring them to him and explain to them the nature of the Digital World as well as his own status as a Support Program to aid Tai. Bequeathing Tai with the Digivice 01, he names Gon his successor as the protector of the Net Ocean and dies soon after. Gon then retrieves his Digi-Egg for safe keeping.
Starmon is the self-proclaimed star of Star City. Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru are challenged to a title-defense contest after Tai and Zero are treated as real stars for their battles against Daemon. There are two contests: beat a Gekomon in a singing contest and arm wrestle with a Tyrannomon. Zero beats those with the help of Tai's crazy doodles in his victory book; Tai uplinks them to Zero, and they win in unexpected ways. Lastly, they battle with Starmon in a speed battle for them to touch him in 3 minutes. Zero wins by gathering fans around himself for an autograph and making Starmon jealous. Starmon resigns, offering Tai and Zero the opportunity to come back as often as they want.
Jijimon is a Mega level Digimon who is a renowned doctor in Hospitown. He appears numerous times to lend medical help to the frequently injured Zeromaru. He is also knowledgeable about many facts concerning the bond between a Tamer and Digimon as well as Zero's existence as an Ancient type and the pros and cons of his overwrite ability.
Pal and Pul
Pal (パル Paru?) and Pul (プル Puru?) are a female and male PetitMamon who appeared in the later half of the series. The two help Rei Saiba escape from Daemon's castle after they realize how insane Neo Saiba, from whom they originally wanted an autograph, has become.
Gekovitch (ゲコビッチ Gekobicchi?) is a ShogunGekomon who works for Lord MagnaAngemon and is the third opponent to Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru. His special attack is the Samurai Tone, and he challenges the 100% Combination to break it. Though the attack uses sound waves hurt the enemy and form a barrier which dispels any attack, Tai and Zero manages to interfere with the sound waves generated by shattering a chandelier. Gekovitch witnesses the invasion within Lord MagnaAngemon's castle and wants to stop his lord from fighting against Arcadiamon.
Ninjamon is a member of MagnaAngemon's army. He works as a spy and often brings information from Daemon's castle. He informs them that Arcadiamon hatched and is also the one who tells Tai that Neo Saiba plans to attack Holy Angel Castle. Bfore he could go to the castle, he is captured by Rosemon. After Ninjamon recovers from his injuries, he proceeds to aid in the battle against Hideto Fujimoto's Omnimon.
Devimon and Ogremon
Kokatorimon and Kuwagamon
Ghoulmon is the DNA Digivolved form of Megadramon and the Guardian of the Tag of Sky, Cherrymon. As a Mega-level Digimon, his very aura causes havoc around him and forms a time-space rift. He initially almost kills both Tai and Zeromaru, but when Zero digivolves into Template:P, he eventually loses in the resulting air battle and is killed when Zero unleashes his newest attack.
Etemonkey is an Etemon serving Daemon and sets up the Ultimate Digimon who guard the five V-Tamer Tags. It is eventually revealed that he stayed under Daemon only for a chance to play with the humans and that he has no intentions of fighting for the human world. He is occasionally seen flown by several DemiDevimon or riding a Monochromon. He is eventually destroyed by Neo Saiba's SkullSatamon after Daemon accuses him of purposely losing to Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru.
V-Tamer Tag Guardians
Triceramon is the Guardian of the Tag of Earth and is the first Ultimate Digimon Tai and Zeromaru truly face in battle on their quest to collect the five V-Tamer Tags. Though extremely strong, he eventually loses and realizes the hidden strength of having a Tamer: a Digimon with a Tamer can fight to their limit without worrying about dying afterward, because they have a Tamer to depend on. Guarding his domain are DarkTyrannomon and Deltamon.
Marine (マリン Marin?) is a MarineDevimon and the Guardian of the Tag of Sea who invaded the Net Ocean. As the second of the Ultimate Digimon, Marine forces an underwater battle with Tai and Zeromaru, with his speed in his watery domain unparalleled. His prodigious speed, however, comes with the weakness of a low defense, as Tai figures out when a bite from Gon lowers his health immensely. After tricking him into surfacing, Zero finishes Marine off with two good punches and Tai claims the V-Tag of Sea. Among his followers are Gesomon and Octomon.
Myotismon is the Guardian of the Tag of Illusions who sets up base in a spooky castle and is the third Ultimate Digimon Tai and Zeromaru face. He uses a Patamon-disguised Bakemon to instill distrust between Tai and Zero before brainwishing Zero through the resulting doubt. His plan fails, however, due to the bond between them. He is ultimately killed when Tai trusts a blinded Zero to fire a V Breath Arrow into Myotismon's face while he holds Tai. His forces include Bakemon, Candlemon, Devimon, Meramon, Kuwagamon, DemiDevimon and Kabuterimon.
Myotismon may be related to the VenomMyotismon Neo Saiba invades MagnaAngemon's castle with, as Neo says that VenomMyotismon is Myotismon's leftover hatred and the only Myotismon in the series is this Myotismon.
Cherrymon is the Guardian of the Tag of Sky. Rather than fight Tai and Zeromaru directly, he is used in a DNA Digivolution with Neo Saiba's Megadramon to form Ghoulmon. He is killed when Ghoulmon is destroyed.
Three NeoDevimon work for Neo and are sent by them to keep Hideto Fujimoto's wounded Omnimon at bay so that one other NeoDevimon could murder Zeromaru in his sleep. Zero defeats two of them before Jijimon and Birdramon arrive. Callismon later reveals that Neo created the NeoDevimon based on Devimon.
Callismon is created by Neo Saiba when he uses 10% of Arcadiamon's data on a Grizzlymon. When Callismon is presented to the other members of Daemon's army, he is able to smash a Devimon and an Ogremon and easily ripped a Boltmon into two. He is sent after Rei Saiba, who escaped Daemon's castle. He quickly reaches and stuns her. However, Zeromaru turns up and fought against him. At first Callismon manages to hold himself very well against Zero, blocking his attacks and even dealing some damage to him. Zero then reveals that he was simply getting used to his stronger body and wins the battle, finally destroying Callismon after a few good punches and his V-Wing Blade attack.
Lycamon, Panimon, and Hermmon
They were originally supposed to appear to fight against Omnimon, Leo and Dominimon. This side plot, however, had to be cut because of time. Similar to Callismon, they were going to be created by Neo Saiba using Arcadiamon's DNA on other Digimon.
- Lycamon is named after Lycaon, the King of Arcadia who was turned into a wolf by Zeus.
- Panimon is named after Pan, the Greek God of Shepherds.
- Hermmon is named after Hermes, the Greek God of Thieves and Messengers.
Soldiers of Daemon's army
Daemon has a lot of evil Digimon in his army like Boltmon, Devimon, and Ogremon. On the back of a Gryphonmon, Neo Saiba led an army of Airdramon, Devidramon, Vilemon, Devimon, a Boltmon, a Megadramon, a Gigadramon, and a VenomMyotismon in attacking MagnaAngemon's Castle. Most of them were defeated by Zeromaru, MagnaAngemon, Leo, and some of the Digimon on MagnaAngemon's side.
Ryo Akiyama and Tai Kamiya move to fight him, only to get into an argument with each other. It turns out that his weakness is the hot-blooded fervor both Ryo and Tai readily display: as their argument heats up, Vikemon weakens until he is defeated.
Parallelmon uses his dimension travelling powers to send Veemon and Davis Motomiya from the Adventure/02 continuity into the V-Tamer continuity and absorbs Takeru "T.K." Takaishi, Kari Kamiya, Yolei Inoue and Cody Hida in the Adventure world. He then travels to the V-Tamer world and attacks Davis and Veemon, but the two are saved by Tai Kamiya and his partner Zeromaru. Since they are unable to destroy Parallelmon, the group has to flee and attack the monster again later. The other DigiDestined of the Adventure 02, along with many other Tamers who were absorbed by Parallelmon, work together from within the beast to recreate the Digi-Egg of Miracles, allowing Veemon to armor digivolve to Magnamon. In the meantime, Tai and Davis come up with a plan to defeat Parallelmon. Zero manages to behead Parallelmon but it is Magnamon who finally destroys him. Davis and Veemon are able to return to their world and everything returns to normal as before Parallelmon appeared.
In this side story, Tai Kamiya and Zeromaru team up with Takuya Kanbara from the Frontier continuity to save Babamon's village from Metamormon. At first, Metamormon becomes an Imperialdramon Fighter Mode and attacks them. He later becomes Ghoulmon to fight Agunimon. When Agunimon slide evolves into BurningGreymon, Metamormon becomes Imperialdramon Fighter Mode again and attacks BurningGreymon while he is fighting with Zero. With Takuya injured, Zero has to fight Metamormon on his own. As Metamormon becomes Goldramon and continues the fight, Tai and Zero notice that Metamormon's Memory System is in the device on his chest. Despite being injured, Takuya becomes Agunimon again and grabs Metamormon until the shape-shifting Digimon becomes Agunimon, giving Zero a hard time. The fake Agunimon attacks but Tai and Agunimon come up with a plan. Agunimon launches himself towards Metamormon, then reverts back to his human form, which Metamormon is unable to mimic. Takuya then spirit evolves into BurningGreymon and defeats Metamormon, who Zero then kills.

Tai Kamiya's grandfather.
Tai's grandfather had a friend who helped him a lot and used to say "courage will give you wings to fly". This friend became a talented pilot, but died of a disease and Tai's grandfather kept his goggles as a reminder of him. After Tai saw a friend being bullied and did not know what to do, the grandfather gave him the "Goggles of Courage and Friendship".
