Taichi Yagami (八神 太一[2] Yagami Taichi?) is the main character of the manga Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01.

Taichi is the first Digimon protagonist to wear goggles.


Taichi looks exactly like the Adventure character of same name, except that he wears a yellow cape, and a Digivice 01 on his left wrist.


Taichi Yagami (八神 太一)
  • Yagami (八神?). Japanese surname that means "eight gods". Possibly a reference to God, who created the V-Tamer Tags Taichi seeks.
  • Taichi (太一?). Japanese name that means "magnificent one". Together with Zeromaru, it is a pun on "01". As "Zeromaru" uses the number "zero" twice, their names form "100", as Taichi and Zero often claim to have "100%" wins.


Taichi's design was influenced by that of Kentarou Kamon[3]. He was originally intended to be named Kakeru Jimon (時門 カケル Jimon Kakeru?), and to be 12-years-old.[4]


He was a boy whose V-Pet had a Digimon thought to be a glitch, and for the most part looks like Digimon Adventure character of the same name, save for the yellow cape. But when he was transported to the Digimon World, he learned that the "glitch" was his partner, Zeromaru, a Veedramon. He met MagnaAngemon, who brought him to the Digital World to help them fight Daemon. Taichi agreed, and with Gabo as a tour guide to find the five V-Tags. He faced the likes of Etemonkey, the evil Digimon that guard the V-Tags. He even fought other humans, like Neo Saiba and the Alias III, who eventually helped him out. After he and Zeromaru defeated Daemon, Taichi and the other children returned to the Real World.

There were a few team-up specials Taichi had with Davis Motomiya, Ryo Akiyama, and Takuya Kanbara.
