Since that part of the thread was revived, I couldn't help noticing this old post.
Putting aside the whole bit about Kaiser, Magna, and Susanoo (another post not long after already corrects this by pointing out the fusion of other elemental Spirits), I did take another look at the Ancient Digimon and the fusion Hybrids. Aside from the ever-present anomaly that is DaiPenmon, it does seem as though fusion Hybrids could believably evolve into the Ancients (and if the "evil" Hybrids were to get fusion forms, maybe they'd combine traits of the Human and Beast forms..... though not as lazily as Aldamon and Beowulfmon.... while also looking like a potential lead-in to their Ancient forms). However, there's one thing bugging me about this: the profiles for all the fused Hybrids state that they've "transcended legend", suggesting that, rather than working as a go-between from the split Human and Beast to the restored Ancient, the reason THIS fusion of the Human and Beast Spirit doesn't resemble the Ancient Digimon that they split off from is because they combined in a way that's seemingly more refined and stronger than their original.I could agree with the plot having been changed significantly since the idea was conceived. I do wish we knew more from behind the scenes regarding when certain ideas came about. Though for another idea on what you mentioned, there's also the whole thing where MagnaGarurumon, EmperorGreymon, and Susanoomon bear less resemblance to the Spirits or to the Ancient Digimon. Flamon -> Agunimon + BurningGreymon -> Aldamon -> AncientGreymon is a decently logical progression, as is Strabimon -> Lobomon + KendoGarurumon -> Beowolfmon -> AncientGarurumon. The other three seem like they may have been added in from the initial idea. The whole show seemed to change a bit around that point, but that could just be my subjectivity.
