Goatmon's gorget reads
These lines are fragments of a quote from Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro which reads in full "When Light and Shadow are joined, set us in the eyes of the goat that faces the high sun." (光と影を結び時つぐる、高き日に向かいし山羊の眼に我を収めよ Hikari to kage wo musubi tokitsugeru, takaki nichi ni mukaishi yagi no manako ni ware wo osame yo)
Thus, on Goatmon they would read "Wh- / -ght and shadow are joined, / us in the eyes / that faces /"
In episode 38, Gennai contacts Kōshirō via e-mail regarding how to defeat Vamdemon including an prophetic inscription found in ancient ruins with Digimoji present on it (in the form of a compressed file attachment), this is intended to be translated as:
Although in reality the stone actually depicts random Digimoji characters, on the stone, this would appear as:
Digimoji can be seen on the Digital Analyzer. It can also be seen on the Holy Stones, reading "Digital Monster".
In episode 12, Sora asks Starmon whether or not he has seen Piyomon and in response to her description, Starmon brings up multiple wanted signs written in Digimoji. The legible part of the sign reads:
nonaka furugi aratameba
This is derived from a tanka, found in the Kokin Wakashū, that Emperor Kanmu recited to a woman whom he had once admired named Kudara no Konikishi Myōshin (百済王 明信), wife of statesman Fujiwara no Tsuginawa, during a banquet in 795. The tanka reads:
|If I tread again|
The old path across the fields
Trodden in days past
Might it be renewed—
the old path across the fields?
However, the Digimoji on the wanted sign misspells "furumichi" (古道) as "furugi" (古着, lit. "old clothing"), so, in full, the sign would read:
nonaka furugi aratameba
aratamaran ya nonaka furugi
In the opening title of episode 13, a column of Digimoji appears displaying the following:
This translates to "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" (フングルイ ムグルウナフ クトゥルウ ルルイエ ウガフナグル フタグン), an occult phrase from H. P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu which means "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming". Later, when Hikari is alone, she walks past a sign that reads - "Innsmouth" (インスマウス), a fictional town in Cthulhu Mythos.
Later, in episode 36, the children discover a spring that naturally gives forth soup, but fail to read the sign warning them not to drink it.
The Digimoji translates to "中華スープの泉: 聖なる中華な泉のスープを無断で呑むことを禁ず無断で呑んだ者は罰する", so in English the sign would be read as "The Chinese Soup Spring: It is forbidden to drink the soup of the sacred Chinese Spring without permission and those who drink it without permission will be punished."
When the Tamers use their D-Arks to evolve their Digimon to the Adult level, Digimoji are displayed which reads: — "Evolution" (エボリューション Eboryūshion), but this is written in fragments - followed by shown vertically to the left of the screen, hence they would translate as "Evoluti—" and "—tion" respectively. Also, during that moment, they are surrounded by a "cocoon" of Digimoji which repeatedly displays a random sequence of letters (), reminiscent of movies with a cyberspace theme, in which random characters appear everywhere as well as flowing with the digital theme of Digimon Tamers.
In episode 33, Shaochung enters the Digital World and appears at the "Great Southern Gate" directly above an engraving in the ground which reads: — "Zhuqiaomon" (スーツェーモン Sūtsēmon). However, unlike other Digimoji, this is displayed in the manner of how it would appear in Katakana, so it appears as:
In episode 35, Takato's D-Ark is destroyed as a result of Guilmon becoming Megidramon and he receives a new gold and white D-Ark in its place. This displays Digimoji on the golden outer rim of the screen which reads: — "Digimon Tamers" (デジモンテイマーズ Dejimon Teimāzu).
In Episode 14, the following sequence of Digimoji is shown on the bottom-left corner of Bolgmon's display, repeating itself while charging up to attack Grottomon with Field Destroyer:
After confronting War Greymon X, Omegamon is contacted by Dukemon via a video message written in Digimoji, this reads:
Omegamon he no
In the first opening, during the scene where it shows various views of action at the DATS Headquarters, the following Digimoji are displayed on the top rows, along with lateral inversions on the bottom rows:
Also, during the scene where it displays the evolutions of the three main Digimon, the English Digimoji along the top of the screen displays the following:
When Masaru and the others revisit Wanderer's Cape, they came across a mysterious building that had a sign with Digimoji on it, reading — "Digisoul Dojo" (デジソウル道場, Dejisouru Dōjō). Similar signs reading "Digisoul" can be seen inside the dojo.
There were also Digimoji on the wall outside this chest, but it was merely a table of the entire Digimon alphabet, arranged in Japanese yokogaki.
In "Agumon! Gaomon! Lalamon! Explosion! The Off-screen Last Battle!", Gaomon states that both he and Thoma are fluent in Digimoji, which is one of the 170-plus languages that they have mastered. When watching clips of their previous battles, Gaomon reads the Digimoji on the Digisoul Dojo sign. Agumon is shocked that Gaomon understands it, and the latter is surprised by the former's illiteracy despite being a Digimon.
When Dark Knightmon constrains Nene using a Blossomon and tortures her in attempt to separate her from Shademon, several ofuda are attached and have Digimoji displayed on them. The first two ofuda that appear read (アトリエ Atorie) and (ほしいよ Hoshii yo), which together translate as "I want Atelier!". The reference to the Atelier series is most likely due to the fact that Kosugi Jyurohta, Dark Knightmon's voice actor in the anime, has provided his voice to several titles, most notably as , who is a supporting character in , and .
The Digimoji written on the other ofuda (displayed below) also reflect this, as these translate as the names of the main protagonists of the aforementioned games in addition to other female characters that appear in those games.
Finally, four different words appear during the end of the torture. The Digimoji for these read (アイス Aisu), (食べたい Tabetai), (お腹 Onaka) and (減った Hetta), which translate collectively as "I want to eat some ice cream, I'm hungry".
Wizarmon casts a spell using Digimoji that disguises the Xros Heart members as humans and animals. The spell reads (デジ文字は大抵アシスタントさんに適当な事を書いて貰っています Dejimoji ha taitei Ashisutanto-san ni tekitouna-koto wo kaite moratte imasu), translating as "Digimoji were something mostly appropriate written down for me by Ms. Assistant."
In order to counterattack Shoutmon X7, Lilithmon casts a magic circle. Part of the inner circle has Digimoji reading (エロイムエッサイム、我は求め訴えたり Eroimu Essaimu, ware ha motome uttaetari; lit. "Eloim, Essaim", I seek and beseech thee"), which itself is a translation of the black magic incantation "Eloim, Essaim, frugativi et appellavi", found in the grimoire La Poule Noire and popularized in Japan by the manga series Akuma-kun.
In a flashback of how Bagramon came to be, he is shown in front of the remains of Yggdrasill, the tree of information. There were various Digimoji-inscribed stone pillars within the vicinity; the one directly in front of Bagramon read:
|Digimoji||Probable Japanese transcription||Romanization|
|Konna toko yomu kurainara na|
eitango wo oboenasai
Kono Dejimon-moji ga yome-
ru nara eigo datte yomeru
muzukashii kanji datte yomeru
bungaku datte yomechau yo
Hanashikawaru kedo onaka su-
ita nanika tabemono kuda-
sai nanika nomimono kudasai
okane hawanai kedo
Doumo arigatou gozaimasu
The seal containing Lucemon displays N, S, E, and W (, , and respectively) at the cardinal points, "DARKNESS" () clockwise along the outer circle, "SEAL" () to the left, right, top, and bottom of the "octagon" formed within the central circle, and a Digital Hazard symbol in the middle, depicted similar to the diagram (right). Each time when Kagura uses the Seven Great Demon Lords' Code Keys to unlock the seal, Digimoji newly appear in vertical segments highlighted in red, but these are just random letters (ex: "r", "t", "h", "e", "l").
It also appears during evolution, however this is merely random sequencing of letters, for example "dfslkfghh" (). Lalamon's Special Move "Sing-a-Song" displays characters which include "sa", "ya", "su", "gi", "ra", "ri", "go", "ku", and "mu".
The Code Keys themselves also include Digimoji displayed in the format as depicted below:
