Digimon Adventure Groupf
A group image depicting the DigiDestined featured in Digimon Adventure. Also present in the back row are Gennai in a Mekanorimon, Elecmon, Ogremon, and Centarumon.

Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure 02, Digimon Adventure tri. and Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, anime series and films produced by Toei Animation for the Digimon franchise, are centered on the DigiDestined (選ばれし子供達 Erabareshi Kodomotachi), a group of children chosen to protect the Digital World. Each child is partnered with a Digimon and use a Digivice to help them Digivolve into stronger forms.

The main DigiDestined cast was designed by Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru. Producer Satoru Nishizono and the staff used a name analysis software to decide on the characters' names, using kanji combinations that related to "luck." For Digimon Adventure tri., director Keitaro Motonaga found that some parts of developing the characters were "difficult to control" due to the characters' "strong personalities", but the staff had "rebuilt" the characters by taking account of their personal growth while retaining their original personalities. A new group of DigiDestined, in addition to T.K. and Kari, were made into the new main cast for Digimon Adventure 02, consisting of Davis, Yolei, Cody, and later Ken.

She was unable to come to camp due to a cold, but was eventually revealed to be the eighth DigiDestined child. Kari admires Tai and is considered T.K.'s equal.

In the series' epilogue, Kari becomes a kindergarten teacher with a son who has inherited her whistle and has a Salamon as his partner Digimon. Originally, Kari was not planned to appear, but halfway into Digimon Adventure's broadcast, Nishizono decided to add her as a character, having been influenced by how "cute" she looked in the 1999 film. In a series of online polls conducted on the Digimon website, Kari was ranked 4th by Japanese voters as their favorite DigiDestined. When the same question was asked two more times, her rank fell to 5th, and then 6th, but finally landed at 1st. In addition, Kari is ranked as 1st, whom the voters would want as a younger sister and as the best-looking DigiDestined in the spring.

Gatomon is an exalted beast Digimon in the form of a bipedal cat and Kari's partner. She wears a special ring on her tail that gives her extra strength and prevents dark energy from spreading. Unlike the others, she is a Champion-level Digimon and displays a more mature behavior due to her complicated past. While escaping the Dark Masters, Gennai accidentally dropped her Digi-Egg, causing her to grow up alone. When she meets Myotismon, she is forced to be his underling, with Wizardmon as her only companion. Upon meeting Kari in the Real World, Wizardmon helps Gatomon realize that she may be her partner Digimon, causing her to defect from Myotismon. In Digimon Adventure 02, Gatomon loses her ring after being attacked by a Dark Ring-controlled Unimon, but retrieves it from Gennai at the end of the series.

Aside from normal digivolutions, Gatomon also has corrupted digivolutions. When Kari believes Tai had died in Coexistence, her overwhelmingly negative emotions force Nyaromon to warp digivolve into Ophanimon: Falldown Mode (オファニモン:フォールダウンモード Ofanimon: Fōrudaun Mōdo, Ofanimon: Falldown Mode) before being absorbed by Raguelmon as the latter digivolves into Ordinemon (オルディネモン Orudinemon). But Gatomon was extracted from Ordinemon before joining the other DigiDestined Digimon in destroying her. In Digimon Tamers: Battle Spirit Ver. 1.5 and Digimon Adventure PSP, Gatomon can become Ophanimon (オファニモン Ofanimon) whilst in Digimon All-Star Rumble, Gatomon is able to become Examon (エグザモン).

Meicoomon is a Champion-level Digimon and Meiko's partner, known by the codename "Libra." Meicoomon contains a shard of Apocalymon's data within her body, which causes an infection in the Digital World. This forces Homeostasis and Hackmon to deem Meicoomon a threat while King Drasil and Dark Gennai see her as a means to destroy humanity. Being separated from Meiko for long periods of time, or seeing her partner harmed, causes her to go feral as Apocalymon's influence manifests itself as she transformed into Meicoomon Saltation (メイクーモン 豹変時 Meikūmon Hyōhen-ji) when she destroyed Leomon. Meicoomon later digivolved into her Ultimate form, Meicrackmon Vicious Mode (メイクラックモンヴィシャスモード Meikurakkumon Vishasu Mōdo) before being exposed to the Digital World's reboot. But Meicoomon retains her memories of Meiko which Dark Gennai exploits to have her fully embrace Apocalymon's influence. In Coexistence, she digivolves into her Mega form, Raguelmon (ラグエルモン Raguerumon) and absorbs Gatomon (as Ophanimon Falldown Mode) to swallow the Real World into the Digital World as Ordinemon (オルディネモン Orudinemon). Though Gatomon was removed, Ordinemon is corrupted by King Drasil's viruses and is destroyed by Omnimon with only the Apocalymon data fragment remaining.

Apocalymon is a Mega-level Digimon attached to a large structure from the waist down who serves as the first season's final antagonist, responsible for the chaos in the Digital World.

In the Japanese version, he refers to itself as "we."
Besides his ability to regenerate, Apocalymon can use his structure's claw-like attachment to replicate the attacks of other Digimon while using his "reverse digivolve" to revert the DigiDestined's Digimon to their default forms.

When the Dark Masters created Spiral Mountain, Sukamon fell to his death in a deep crevice with Chuumon informing the DigiDestined of what occurred in their absence. Chuumon then later sacrifices himself to save a devastated Mimi from Piedmon's knife. The two were eventually reborn and resurfaced in Digimon Adventure 02 after Shurimon freed Digitamamon from a Dark Spiral. The two once again attempted to get Mimi to go out with them before she punches them clear across a lake in response.
