This one resonates hard.when was this said? Do you have a source?What's interesting to me is that according to Jintrix and ReArise, the Dukemon of the Royal Knights was originally a Megidramon of the Four Great Dragons, the greatest sin of the Digital Hazard, who became Dukemon after its redemption
As an Olympos XII fanboy, I definitely agree that they blend into eachother a lot less than the Royal Knights. You have members who are actually physically weak for megas but get their god status in other ways like Vulcanusmon whose god level power entirely comes from being a craftsman of legendary skill as he powers up himself and everybody he's allied to as a result from his gear, Venusmon who wins her battles through pacism and removing aggression from her opponents like Marine Angemon does, and Dianamon who is a master illusionist and wins by turning her opponent's mind into her own plaything. You also have Digimon with very divergent body shapes like Neptunemon, Ceresmon, and Bacchusmon (who also is a comic relief role that the Royal Knights could benefit from as their members all seem way too serious) and you have members who are antiheros but are still amazing protectors of their domain like Marsmon, Mercurymon, and Minervamon. Outside of a few slight exceptions, you don't find this diversity in the Royal Knights, they all just feel like lawful good dragonmen characters who win through physical force. Unfortunately, the Olympos XII have yet to have a real story outside of Aegiomon in Digimon Crusader as the Royal Knights have priority in portrayals due to their popularity and the Olympos XII are also tucked away into an entirely seperate Digital World (a world that interests me that I want to see as we have never even had a glimpse of it)
Ideally, we'll get an Olympos storyline that leads to a showdown with the RKs which has been teased before in the past.
Then there's also the fact that Olympos also now have a Jogress between members, something the RKs doesn't. Which I think is something else that reinforces each member's own style. If your own style isn't strong enough, combine with another one to get the job done, compared to the RKs who, unlike Olympos who are more a battle of, uh wits (More so specific specializiations), is just a ragging torrent of power. (Granted, GraceNovamon is probably just a nod to Digimon World Dawn/Dusk but still. It would be cool to get 5 other Jogress mons between the other members.)
