Episode recap for Duel of the WarGreymon. (Japanese with subtitles)


Oikawa returns the seeded kids in hopes of one sprouting. When they come back, they become super-intelligent and their parents are thrilled, but the kids know the truth. The DigiDestined start visiting the children's homes to convince their parents into believing the truth, but they won't hear of it. Agumon tells the DigiDestined that BlackWarGreymon has entered the Real World. BlackWarGreymon approaches Oikawa and discovers the truth about himself, that Oikawa is his creator. Feeling like his existence was fake, he tries to kill Oikawa, but Agumon warp digivolves to WarGreymon and stops the both of them. They start to fight when Imperialdramon Fighter Mode also enters, and he and WarGreymon put a stop to the batle. Oikawa flees, while the degenerated Agumon, Veemon, and Wormmon stay behind to talk to BlackWarGreymon about his destiny and ask to be his friend. Confused, BlackWarGreymon leaves to sort out his feelings.

DigiEgg Knowledge


BlackWarGreymon: "Why do you protect him?!"
Tai: "Because without Oikawa, we'll never get the Dark Spores out of those kids! Don't you understand? They'll stay in there forever if we let you destroy him."
BlackWarGreymon: "Then you should have stopped him... not attacked ME!!!"
WarGreymon: "Don't even think about hurting Tai!"

—BlackWarGreymon and the others have conflicting ideas as the duel with WarGreymon begins.

WarGreymon: "I don't understand you! Why do you have to fight when we can be friends?"
BlackWarGreymon: "Friendship is weakness. Fighting. Struggle. That is my life."
WarGreymon: "But it doesn't have to be that way."
BlackWarGreymon: "Enough! There is no need for two WarGreymons in this world. Either you go, or I go."

—WarGreymon continues to reason, but BlackWarGreymon is done listening.

BlackWarGreymon: "Unhand me, or feel my wrath!"
WarGreymon: This is your last chance!"
Imperialdramon (Stingmon's voice): "Why is he so eager to fight?"
Imperialdramon (ExVeemon's voice): "I don't know, but if we fight here, at least no one will be hurt."
BlackWarGreymon: "So be it: Terra Destroyer!"
WarGreymon: "Terra Force!"
Imperialdramon: "Positron Laser!"

—Three of the most powerful Digimon unleash their attacks in a devastating showdown.

"If all you've got in your life is lemons, make lemon pie! Hey, I'm hungry!"

Agumon's stomach overrides his brain yet again.

Other notes

Continuity errors

  • In the English dub, while chasing Oikawa, Nefertimon shouts "Rosetta Stone" when using her Queen's Paw attack (originally, she did not speak at this point).

Animation errors

  • In a shot of the DigiDestined raising their fists in the air in T.K.'s home, Gatomon's paws are colored white.
  • In a scene in the Digital World, Kari was shown in her winter outfit instead of her usual outfit in the Digital World.
  • At the start of the car chase scene, Arukenimon's gloves are missing.

Dubbing changes

  • The actual shot of Noriko kicking the cat is removed from the English dub.

Digimon references

  • The scene where Noriko kicks a cat mirrors Ken in the episode A New Digitude, when he kicks a small dog (though, both of these scenes are removed from the English dub).

Miscellaneous trivia

  • WarGreymon and BlackWarGreymon announce the episode title in the Japanese episode.
  • In both the original and English dub, Imperialdramon Fighter Mode announces his name as "Fighter Form".
  • Agumon last appeared as WarGreymon in the movie Digimon Adventure: Our War Game!.
  • This is the 100th episode of the Digimon Adventure continuity and the entire series in general.
  • The car driven by Oikawa and Arukenimon during the chase is the Toyota Fortuner 2006 model.
