Sorry for our appearance, but this article currently needs a lot of work.

A Digital World (デジタルワールド, Dejitaru Wārudo) is huge world that exists in a different dimension than the Reality in which human beings live. It is assumed that the all existence is reduced to data in this huge digital space, and because no one can see the entirety of all the Digital World, its existence still remains a mystery.[1]

There are a variety of Digital Worlds that are full of life, though digital,[1] acting as parallel worlds to each other.[2][3][4][5][6][7] They have an existence that transcends reality and sometimes even corrodes reality.[1] They may exist on separate servers[7] and be ruled over by different host computers[8] and managed by other entities.[7] Alternate Digital Worlds can be used as energy conduits as is the case with Metal Fantomon, who operates using an energy supply from another dimension's Digital World.[6] The interior of the cloth which conceals Fantomon's body is said to lead to the Digital World of another dimension.[9] Parrotmon wandered from another Digital World through a space-time rift,[4] while Nanimon invaded from another dimension's Digital World.[2] Mastemon has the special ability to connect the gates to another Digital World,[10] controlling the forces of the Angel- and Fallen Angel-tribes it summons from there to overcome predicaments.[10]

Human technology has opened the door to another "Reality" that can not be measured and some people say that the human race has reached a turning point of destiny as a species.[1]

Rather than having a physical time like the Human World, Digimon have "recorded time". All the data, every memory in the Digital World is recorded in the place known as Kernel and different possibilities from them are computed, the result exists in the next instant and the cycle repeats. For the Digital World, records are history itself. This may imply that they can be changed, and changing those records means changing history itself.[11][12]

Nanimon, BomberNanimon, Piemon and other Evil-species and Undead type Digimon come from other Dimensions.[2][13][14] Wendimon is able to warp by moving through other dimensions, as well as create subdimensions of its own.[15] Millenniumon can also create its own pocket dimensions.[16] The inside of the "Beni Hisago" that Ginkakumon carries on its back is said to be connected to somewhere in a different dimension, and that Digimon who are hurled to this different dimension are converted to alcohol.[17] Digitamamon is said to never evolve unless it fuses with data from another dimension.[18]. Dukemon: Crimson Mode and Mastemon can consign its oponents to another dimension with their abilities.[19][10] Alphamon is able to summon a legendary monster from another Dimension.[20] The inside of the cloth concealing Phantomon’s body is connected to the Digital World of another dimension,[21] while MetalPhantomon functions using energy provided by a Digital World in another dimension.[22] When Canoweissmon releases all of its power, its entire body shines with white-hot light so intense that it can be perceived in other dimensions.[23] And finally, Abbadomon is thought to have annihilated several Digital Worlds in other dimensions in the past.[24]

In the earliest stages of its existence, this incarnation of the Digital World was little more than a barren desert. As it grew alongside the Earth's communications network, however, it evolved and changed in dynamic ways, with more and more "layers" coming into existence over the top of the old ones. The lowest layer is the original desert plain, and the highest is the home of the Four Holy Beasts that rule the Digital World. In between lie many small miniverses, self-contained environments specially suited to the Digimon that live there, including (but not limited to) an area of clouds and clockwork; a warped, black-and-white town; an area of forests, lakes and rivers; and a world entirely composed of water that contains the Digital World's database.

Random packets of discarded data often roam the Digital World like tumbleweeds and can be used to help repair and heal injured Digimon. Although the Digital World has both night and day, there is no transitional period between the two, with darkness instantly sweeping across the world like a sheet. Visible in the sky no matter what plain it is viewed from is a pulsing globe of code and light, which represent the Earth—from it emanate data streams, vast columns of energy which reach into the Digital World and manipulate its digital matter, physical representations of acts performed on computers across the world. Should an individual be caught in a data stream they will be swept into it and deposited elsewhere on any of the Digital World's potential planes. Between Earth and the Digital World is a warped region of interdimensional space where reality is constantly in flux and defined only by the perceptions of individuals passing through it.

Digimon are, in fact not native to this Digital World, having been created by a group of teenage computer programmers in the late 1980s as an experiment into the development of artificial intelligence. When the project was shut down due to a lack of funds their primitive digital lifeforms accidentally found their way into the Digital World where they began to grow and evolve. One of the programmers, Shibumi, observed this and wrote an algorithm that allowed the Digimon to evolve beyond their original specifications and truly become individual lifeforms. Four Digimon in particular evolved into especially powerful forms and became the aforementioned Four Holy Beasts. The Digital World does have native lifeforms, however, in the form of DigiGnomes, the first form of artificial life who evolved from the matter of the Digital World itself before the Digimon. The DigiGnomes tend to the welfare of the Digital World and have mysterious powers that allow them to grant the wishes of others.

While conducting secret information-gathering on the network the Japanese SIGINT organization Hypnos became aware of the existence of the Digital World and Digimon which they dubbed Wild Ones. Sometime after this Digimon began to appear in the real world, possibly due to Hypnos's inadvertent creation of a "weak spot" in the borders between the worlds with the use of the Juggernaut, a program designed to send errant Digimon back to Digital World or erase their data from the Real World. Digimon materialize on Earth through a process known as "Realization," which begins when the barrier between the worlds is temporarily sundered to allow their passage through. The interaction of the two dimensions creates Digital Fields—small gray fog banks which allow Digimon to synthesize false proteins and convert themselves into physical forms after interacting with Earth's electromagnetic field. These Digital Fields can appear in random locations instantaneously and often with little warning.

In addition to Hypnos and the original programmers the Wild Bunch, initially the only humans to be aware of Digimon and the Digital World are a small group of children known as Tamers. These Tamers had been chosen by the DigiGnomes to become partners with Digimon and the creatures had used Shibumi's algorithm to bond human and Digimon together as partners via the D-Ark. However, with the progression of the series and the increase in Digimon activity on Earth escalating from small skirmishes between the Tamers and Digimon (with little to no damage to the Tamers' home city) to more devastating occurrences and eventually a massive, city-devastating battle with the Deva and finally the full-scale invasion of the D-Reaper the existence of Digimon and the Digital World eventually became public knowledge.

Digimon Frontier[edit]

See: Digital World (Frontier)

This version of the Digital World is divided into ten regions in which each one represents the element of each of the Ten Legendary Warriors. Each region has a terminal which is used by the Trailmon to transport the various Digimon across the criss-crossing railway tracks to different areas of the Digital World. Everything in the Digital World, from land to individual Digimon, is made of DigiCode.

In the series, this is mostly seen by the villains trying to give enough power to Lucemon to break free from the Dark Area. The DigiCode can also be "rendered" which results in the data being put back into its normal place. If a Digimon loses its DigiCode they would revert back to a Digitama and return to the Village of Beginnings to restart the life. The Digital World is also orbited by Three moons that are named after the three Great Angels and each are different colors: the blue Seraphimoon, the yellow Ophanimoon, and the red Cherubimoon. The Seraphimoon is inhabited by a colony of Starmon with a Super Starmon as their leader, and it was also the home to Insekimon and Burgamon. The Ophanimoon is home to a Rebirth Village where, just like the Village of Beginnings, Digimon whose data has been destroyed can be reborn.

The Digital World was broken up in the past into 108 Zones, separated by the Digital Space. Each Zone possesses a Code Crown, which gives their owner control over the Zone and allows those that can't open holes through the dimensions to cross from one Zone to another. Someone who collects all the Code Crowns is considered the Digimon King. After Bagramon collected the 108 Code Crowns, he reformatted the world into seven Lands instead, each controlled by a Death General, and from which people can only leave by defeating said Death General and taking over the Land.

According to a comment from Shoutmon, now the Digimon King, to Pinochimon in "Robot Club's Dream, Pinochimon's Temptation", the Digital World is still divided into Lands as of Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time.

Digimon Ghost Game[edit]

The Digital World is the place where Digimon came from. Due to an unknown individual, Amanokawa Hokuto was sent into it and now can't come back, and on the opposite side, Digimon are appearing in the Real World as Hologram Ghosts. Black Tailmon Uver. and Lilithmon are able to open portals between both worlds seemingly at will, but no other Digimon knows how to go back to it.

According to Mummymon in "Pyramid", the ancient Digital World was ruled by Pharaohmon.

The Digital World was broken up in the past into 108 Zones, separated by the Digital Space. Each Zone possesses a Code Crown, which gives their owner control over the Zone and allows those that can't open holes through the dimensions to cross from one Zone to another. Someone who collects all the Code Crowns is considered the Digimon King and could rebuilt the Digital World from scratch.

Digimon Survive[edit]

The Kemonogami come from a strange world inhabited only by them. Children were sent as sacrifices to it in the past, and the protagonists go into it through the shrine that serves as a nexus point between both worlds. While mostly devoid of human architecture, there are some old buildings in it, copies created from the memories of children that went into the world in the past, as well as a modern library that appears in it later in the game. The world is sustained by the belief of humans, as the religion about the Kemonogami faded, the world started to collapse.

The world is said to have been created in the past by a God that later vanished. Instead, it is now taken care of by the Master, who seeks sacrifices from human children to keep it from collapsing. The Minase priestesses, such as Minase Miyuki, can open doors between both worlds through their song, but only in appropiate times and places.

While normally unnamed, as are the monsters that inhabit it (only humans call them Kemonogami), at the end of the Moral route, Minase Akiharu thinks that people will come to call it the Digital World, as it will be sustained by the belief of people in the form of digital data thanks to Momotsuka Takuma and the rest posting their adventures in social media and an earlier fight between Agumon and Piemon going viral, which he thinks will also change the world itself.

At some point during the L&R Wars an "Unknown Island" appeared in the surface layer, which seems to be a physical manifestation of the Dark Area which surfaced in the middle of the Digital World. It is in this Layer that most of the events from all media occur.
