A few years after he and his friends saved it in August 1999, now a middle school student, Tai Kamiya returns to the Digital World when Agumon and the other DigiDestined Digimon are in danger. Having just enrolled in Odaiba elementary after his mother moved into the district, T.K Takaishi hangs out with Kari Kamiya before they learn from Izzy Izumi that Tai entered the Digital World as they head to the computer club room. But the group are followed by Davis Motomiya, a boy who happens to both idolize Tai and a crush on Kari. As Davis wants to join them, three beams shoot out of the computer with one manifesting in Davis’ hand as a strange Digivice and joins T.K and Kari in their expedition while Izzy remains behind to distract two kids from T.K.’s apartment building: Yolie Inoue and Cody Hida. In the Digital World, Davis, T.K. and Kari find Tai, Agumon, Patamon, and Gatomon after she lost her tail ring. As they learn a mysterious figure called the Digimon Emperor is behind Digimon being enslaved by Dark Rings and their partners unable to Digivolve, Tai proceeds to take the younger DigiDestined to a strange DigiEgg that bares his Crest of Courage. Though it seemed unable to be removed, Davis is able to lift the DigiEgg with a Digimon named Veemon materializing. By that time, a Monochromon under the Digimon Emperor’s control is sent after the group. It was only when Kari is in trouble that Davis uses the DigiEgg of Courage to Armor Digivolve Veemon into Flamedramon who breaks Monochromon’s Dark Ring. After Tai gives Davis his goggles, the DigiDestined enter the real world.
