DigiMemories

The DigiMemories from Digimon Next. From left to right: Dark, Holy, Dragon, Beast, Bird, Machine, Aquan, and Insect-Plant

The Family (フィールド Fīrudo?, lit. "Field"), also known as Species, is an overarching group that a Digimon can belong to. The concept originates from the Digimon Pendulums. Digimon within the same family may have traits in common, such as how Wind Guardians Digimon are often capable of flight or how Dragon's Roar Digimon tend to resemble dragons.

In the Digital Monster Card Game and Digi-Battle Card Game, each Digimon family is initially represented by the background color of the card, where it helps denote what cards may digivolve into other cards at a glance. These families become more important in the Digimon World Data Squad and DS Digimon Story games, where these families help determine what attacks Digimon are strong or weak to, as well as influence Digivolution requirements.
