Hi, so I'm making a digimon fan game, so I have been spending time thinking about what the plot of it is going to be. While I contemplated this, I remembered so many of the reoccurring themes and premises that digimon anime, games, and manga, reuse all the time. (Some to the point they are beating a dead horse)
One of the main ones is who is the antagonist, for example so many times it's the Royal Knights and Yggdrasill, and some times they are just the front for the real villain.
Another is the Demon lords, even when they aren't the big bad they have a part where they act as a antagonist, like digimon story.
So if I am goign to make my own original story I want to know what cliches you guys are tired of seeing in every digimon serial?
Second I want you to tell me what themes, ideas, or concepts you would like to see, either for the first time, or just because it's not used much.
I will go first, I am pretty sick of the Royal Knights being the bad guys in some way, and Yggdrasill especially, for once I want to see him as benevolent towards humans.
I'm also tired of the villains, when acting as a group being one for all and all for one, basically turning on each other as soon as it's convient. I want to see a group that is dedicated towards their mutual goal and will even sacrafice for it. Maybe a Cult or something?
Also I want to see the royal knights working along side humans, maybe Yggdrasill selecting a worthy human to be the partner of each knight.
I also would like to see humans create digimon again, like in tamers, but this time living along side them like assisting them. Maybe kind of like the net navi's do in Rockman EXE?
That would work well with Yggdrasill being the host computer, installed by the human creators to monitor the digital world. This would also be good, because human's could use computer programming on the digimon. Maybe some hackers modifying some of them. Like for instance make mugendramon into choasdramon?
So what are your guys ideas? Also if you like someone's ideas, so say, so I can know which ones are more popular?
