Digital World (Frontier)

From Wikimon
The Digital World, in the process of being restored.

In Digimon Frontier, the Digital World (デジタルワールド Dejitaru Wārudo) is a planet that is situated in its own outer space.



As recorded in the tunnel of the Digital World's history, the Digital World was born from the same data as the Legendary Spirits.[1]

In its ancient history, there was a war between Human Digimon and Beast Digimon, which ended when Lucemon appeared. Lucemon stopped the conflict, became the ruler of the Digital World, and ushered in an era of peace. Over time, he became a tyrant and caused great suffering to the Digimon. The Warrior Ten appeared and defeated Lucemon, and sealed him away in the Dark Area. After their battle with Lucemon, the Warrior Ten released the twenty Spirits and entrusted them to the Three Archangels, the new rulers of the Digital World, then vanished and/or entered a state of sleep.[2][1]

Each of the Three Archangels took possession of some of the Spirits.[1] Seraphimon was entrusted with upholding the Digital World's law and order, Cherubimon was entrusted with upholding knowledge and education, and Ofanimon was entrusted with upholding love and life. However, ideological differences arose between Cherubimon and the other two Archangels, who accused them of neglecting the interests of Beast Digimon (his own kind) in favor of the Human Digimon (to which Seraphimon and Ofanimon belonged).[2]


Everything in the Digital World, including the Digimon, is composed of Digicode, which is the source of all energy in the Digital World. Everything from mountains to towns has its own Digicode. It is possible to take, or "scan", the Digicode of a location in the Digital World and use it to empower oneself by physically destroying the location. However, some locations have safeguards which make the Digicode harder to access and therefore protect the area from being scanned, like the Digicode being hidden or locked within a particular object,[3] or by the Digicode being manually scrambled by the inhabitants.[4] If scanned Digicode for a location is retrieved, it can be released and will then return to its original location and restore the terrain as it was.[5]

The Dark Area, in which Lucemon is imprisoned, is situated at the core of the Digital World.[6]

The flow of data in the Digital World follows railway lines;[7] all of the Digital World's regions are connected by the Digirail railway network, on which the Trailmon operate. People may buy passes to ride the Trailmon.[8] Even when the terrain of the Digital World is scanned, the railways remain in place.[9]


The land surface of the Digital World is divided into several major continental regions, which are typically called areas (エリア eria) or lands (国kuni). The following areas are identified on-screen:

  • Flame Area (炎のエリア Honō no eria)
    A rocky region with varying amounts of plant life.[10]
  • Forest Land/Forest Area (森の国/森のエリア Mori no kuni/Mori no eria)
    A region that is mostly covered in dense forests.[11]
  • Ice Land/Ice Area (氷の国/氷のエリア Kōri no kuni/Kōri no eria)
    A northern continent that is largely covered in ice and snow.[12]
  • Dark Continent (闇の大陸 Yami no tairiku)
    A mysterious region about which nothing is documented. Trailmon fear it and will refuse to go there.[8]
  • Steel Area (鋼のエリア Hagane no eria)
    A mountainous region which is largely barren, but can be cultivated.[13][14]
  • Light Area (光のエリア Hikari no eria)
    A vast field of white flowers.[10]
  • Wandering Island (さまよえる島 Samayoeru shima)
    A floating landmass that wanders through gaps in the Digital World's dimension. It is where Ornismon was once sealed away by Ancient Greymon and Ancient Garurumon, and it is inhabited by two communities of Digimon that are at war with each other.[15]

Outer space[edit]

The Digital World is orbited by three moons.

  • The blue moon (Dub: Seraphimoon) is inhabited by a colony of Starmons and their commander, Super Starmon, who operate an observatory called Moon Base. Other inhabitants include a group of Insekimon and a group of Burgamon.[6]
  • The red moon (Dub: Cherubimoon) is never visited.
  • The yellow moon (Dub: Ophanimoon) is shrouded in clouds that glow gold. There is a large field of flowers on its surface.

The Digital World planet is shielded by an electromagnetic stream, which also affects the direction of the three moons' gravity. It usually prevents anybody from moving to and from the Digital World and the moons. However, when an eclipse of two of the moons occurs, it creates a path through the electromagnetic stream that can be ridden.[6]



Digimon Frontier[edit]

The Digital World, after having had much of its Digicode taken.

In order to free himself from imprisonment in the Dark Area, Lucemon corrupts Cherubimon and compels him to begin harvesting the Digital World's Digicode. Lucemon's aim is to obtain all of the Digicode so that he can be released.[1] Under his influence, Cherubimon attacks and dethrones the other Archangels and sends his minions, including the Evil Warriors that he created from the Legendary Spirits in his possession, to harvest Digicode.[2]

In response to this, Ofanimon sends out a call to the Real World to recruit Chosen Children to stop Cherubimon.[2] The Chosen Children travel the Digital World, fight Cherubimon's minions and the Evil Warriors, collect Spirits to use, and follow Ofanimon's guidance to several major destinations, including the Forest Terminal[17] (where they meet Seraphimon) and the Rose Morning Star[18] (where they face Cherubimon at his castle).

After Cherubimon's defeat, all of the Digicode that he had harvested is sent to Lucemon in the Dark Area. Lucemon sends the Royal Knights, Dynasmon and Lord Knightmon, to continue scanning all of the world's Digicode.[19] The Chosen Children repeatedly attempt to stop them with the assistance of locals from the areas that they are defending, but are always defeated, and one by one, areas are scanned. The last surviving area is the Light Area, and when the Royal Knights also scan it following a battle at Ofanimon's Castle, Lucemon is revived.[20]

The three moons are also destroyed in a battle between the Chosen Children, the Royal Knights and Lucemon: Falldown Mode.[21]

When Susanoomon destroys Lucemon: Larva, all of the scanned Digicode is released and returned to its original place, restoring the Digital World.[22]
