Emotions as power:
It is well documented that human emotions work like a battery for Digimon. This is either the motivation for villains wanting to take over the Human World or for good Digimon to find a human partner or even the reason why Digimon gods don’t want humans and Digimon to interact.
But why? It’s possible that human emotions are akin to data, which is the “normal” food source for most Digimon. Theoretically, most human knowledge is easily quantified and analyzed by computers. However, it’s possible that emotions are the one thing that humans produce that are too complex to be classified as regular information. Simply, emotions are really complex data algorithms.
Savers gave us some examples of how human emotions can affect Digimon. It would be interesting to see this used more cleverly by the human characters. Not just using hotbloodedness to trigger a DigiSoul punch, but something like focusing on a moment in their life where they were extremely petty, depressed, or cruel and using that emotion to disorient/devolve a nearby hostile Digimon.
Following the Road Trip Adventures of @into_theworld
To keep up with Christof’s and Marcus’s adventures on the road, follow @into_theworld on Instagram.
Traveling the world in a car and taking photographs on the road was Christof Schoppa’s and Marcus Hofschulz’s (@into_theworld) dream. The idea came up during a phone call. “The same night we decided: We’re going to do this!” says Marcus.
Since starting the adventure in February, “Kalli,” a transformed Kia Carnival van, is equally vehicle and home to the duo. The brave decision to leave everything behind – apartments, jobs, studies – has been rewarded through unforgettable moments and memories along the way. “It was a starlit night, and we drove along the coast to find a place to sleep. Eventually we found a small sandy path that led to a cliff, offering a vast view over the moonlight-flooded ocean.” So far, Marcus and Christof have visited 13 countries, and there’s no plan to stop any time soon. “We are currently focusing on Europe and then the rest of the world. Into the World is a global photography project,” says Christof.
(I came up with this after getting a couple ask on whether Stro and Sanchez were still friends. And seeing Sanchez and Estrada sit together I couldn’t help think of fictional drama. We all know the feeling of seeing your bff, bff-ing with someone else, like the actual worst thing that could ever happen.)
“Marcus is another one of those guys that probably doesn’t get the recognition that he deserves because his role is a pivotal role for us, but maybe it doesn’t get all the accolades. He’s really the penalty-killing guy who matches up against top centermen on other teams, faceoffs, all the important details that coaches certainly appreciate."
“You guys are lucky I found you two, especially wandering in a desert like this… Imagine if you two had been found by Section 31 first or something… But you don’t have to worry anymore, I’ll give you a ride. Well… for a price, of course…” *wink*
Surprise, it’s mirror!Kirk. XD …Or is it…?
“…” “…Is he implying what I think he is implying, Khan?”
“Come on, guys… It’s not going to suck itself. Do you want a ride on my starship or what?”
They share a long silent stare of shock and disbelief before Carol finally loses it and blurts out:
“OH…MY…G- …Khan, break his legs.”
“Hmm, wait a second, I have a better idea, Carol…”
An ominous smile took over the augment’s beautiful features, far more terrifying than Carol’s demand, and he approached the Captain like a panther stalking its prey…
