So this is more of a light-hearted, but a somewhat intriguing exercise in character development and perception.

What are some characters that you believe fit the bill in so far as their associated Crests/Digimentals, and those which you would have swapped out? The same applies to human and digimon partnerships.

Personally, I think that for the most part, the Crests and partnerships for the vast majority of the original team syncs up quite well, though Kari's Crest is somewhat vague. In so far as 02, I think that Yolei should haven gotten Knowledge and Courage. I know what they were going for with Davis, but I can't think of anyone more like Tai and Izzy than Yolei. This may apply more towards the VA for the dub, but I always took Hawkmon to be intended as a rather sagely character.

Were it not for my own headcanon concerning Ken, Kindness would have gone to Davis. Veemon's general cheerful disposition and Davis' general trusting nature make this an appropriate fit. but if we're going with classic Digimentals, then Friendship and Reliability.

Cody basically gets stuck with what's left over, but I actually believe that Sincerity is a good match for him, because of his brutal honesty. What I have difficulty with is Love as applied to Cody. Not that he didn't care deeply for his friends, but his character suffered such poor development, that it's hard to peg him as one thing or the other. If I had to swap him with Davis, perhaps I'd say Sincerity and Reliability for Cody, and Friendship and Love for Davis.

I think Takato and Guilmon delivered when it came to Courage, Love, and Kindness. While Tamers doesn't operate under the same mechanics, the Crests etc. are known within that universe, even if they are just fiction to them.

Rika fits the bill in so far as Friendship, Sincerity, and Light. Light is the harder sell out of all of these, but taken in tandem with Sincerity, I think it works quite well.

Henry is perhaps what I had hoped Cody to be were he developed accordingly. Personally, I could see him embodying Knowledge, Hope, and Reliability.

How aboiut Meiko having the crest of friendship? Yeah, she is shy and somewhat antisocial but much like Matt/Yamato there is a level of irony that the best of friends aren't necessarly the most social people.

Meiko didn't get much in the way of character development to merit a Crest proper, though she is "included"amongst the core cast. I implicitly apply the Crest of Justice to her,because Meicoomon was intended to be the keeper of Libra. Raguelmon and Ophanimon Reaper Mode (That's what I call her, because to me she's not quite Fallen, proper, but more in keeping with an Eastern dark avatar.) both deal with judgement. Their combined form produced Ordinemon which is again concerned with judgement. The scale tipped against the Human World, which was likewise deemed worthy of a reboot (Was that her intention?). Omnimon Merciful Mode steps in and spares our world of that fate. Meicoomon must in turn be reminded of the good in humanity, and that true Justice is likewise tempered with Mercy. Personally, and this goes beyond the scope of the thread, I don't like that Omnimon gets a mode change. He should have become a totally different digimon after all of them combined into one. Perhaps Shakamon?
