Terriermon: "It's going to be big"
Henry: "How can you tell?"
Renamon: "We're looking up aren't we?"

Good point.

Terriermon: "Now its a digimon!"
Henry: "Well, wait for us!"
Renamon: "If we wait for you we'll be too old to fight it..."


"Target locked! It's... A giant pig!"
"Sir, we haven't been practicing our giant pig maneuvers!"
"Wait, we have giant pig maneuvers?!"

I'm as surprised as this guy.

Taomon: "Come on boys let's go!"
Rapidmon: "I'm with ya!"
Wargrowlmon: "Wait for me!"

The ultimates prepare for battle.

Other notes

Continuity errors

  • When Henry sees the Deva poster in the shop window, he and Rika speak to her grandmother and then run off without taking it.
  • Normally, though the process of digivolving to their Ultimate formes is called "Matrix Digivolution", the Tamers' digimon merely exclaim "Gargomon[etc.] digivolve to...". In this episode, the say, "Gargomon[etc.] matrix digivolve to...".

Animation errors

  • Renamon's three tufts of fur on her shoulders are shown to be white in the scene where Vikaralamon appears.

Real-world references

  • The title of this episode is a pun and a reference to the Boer War, which occurred from 1899 to 1902.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Takato announces the title of the episode in the Japanese version.
