Kenta is a young boy with light skin, straight dark green hair with bangs parted in the middle, and dark eyes (though his eyes are sometimes drawn as bright green). He wears large rimless glasses with silver temples. He wears an orange T-shirt under an opened khaki short-sleeved button-up shirt, dark brown shorts, white socks, and light grey shoes with aquamarine laces and soles.
Kenta is a close friend of Takato and Kazu, and he is also a player of the Hyper Coliseum Card Game, but he always loses to Kazu. Kenta tends to be in on many of Kazu's jokes, making them quite the comedic pair. He is far meeker and gentler than Kenta, and is rather excitable and quick to show emotion.
Kenta enjoys singing karaoke, but his voice is atrocious.
Kenta Kitagawa (北川 健太)
Name used in the Japanese version of Digimon Tamers and related material. Also used in multiple dubs, including the American English.
- Ja: Kitagawa (北川?). A Japanese surname meaning "north river".
- Ja: Kenta (健太?). A masculine Japanese name meaning "great health".
Kenta decided to go to the Digital World with the rest of the Tamers. Kenta was kind of jealous and upset that everyone had a Partner but him, which led him to pretend that he and Guilmon were Partners (temporarily), when he, Guilmon, and a few of the others became separated from Takato, Guilmon's rightful Partner.
As they left to return home, MarineAngemon falls from the sky, after Calumon evolves most of the Digital World's Digimon into their Mega form, and goes off again after Kenta shoos him off although the little Mega apparently grows very attached to him during this meeting. However, some time later, he appears inside Kenta's back pocket, together with a Digivice. This made Kenta the only Tamer to have a Mega Digimon for a partner. Kenta understands what MarineAngemon is saying, even though it says only a few words. Kazu points that out and is amazed by it.
During Locomon's rampage Kazu, Guardromon, Kenta, and MarineAngemon met with Henry and Lopmon, who Henry accidentally misplaced with Terriermon when he left his sister Suzie, but managed to switch them back later, and followed Locomon on a small train car with Guardromon providing the thrust for them. Kenta and MarineAngemon also assisted in the final battle against the Parasimon. Afterwards both of them attended Rika's birthday party.
