Kanji/Kana デジヴァイス
Dub Name Digivice

The Digivice (デジヴァイス Dejivaisu) is the basic model of Digivice used primarily in the Digimon Adventure continuity. Described in the legends of File Island as a "holy device" which "guides this world towards light while repelling the darkness", as related by the inscriptions of the Temple of the Digivice Centalmon[1], Digivices are possessed by all Chosen Children. As with all Digivices, their primary function is to draw upon the energy of the Chosen Child in order to evolve their partner Digimon. Unlike later models, all Digivices of this model are a uniform light gray color; this only changes upon activation of a Crest, which turns the Digivice into a color matching the Crest.

As of 2002, this basic Digivice model was largely superceded in functionality by the D-3; however, they continued to be used by the majority of their original bearers.


  • Can be used to channel a human's emotions and energy in order to evolve one or more Digimon up to the Adult level.
  • In conjunction with a Tag and Crest, can be used to evolve a Digimon to higher levels.
  • Has a built in map and tracker function, able to identify the locations of other Digivices on a map.
  • Imbued with a potent light energy which, when activated, can repel or damage dark Digimon or those under the influence of a Black Gear. Additionally, this light can help purge Black Gears from an infected Digimon; this, however, can have unintended side effects.


Digimon Adventure continuity[edit]




Digimon Adventure[edit]

The eight Digivices used by Yagami Taichi's group of Chosen Children were created by Gennai and his associates, along with their Tags, Crests and partner Digimon's DigiTama, shortly after the eight were chosen following the 1995 Hikarigaoka battle. When Piemon's forces assaulted Gennai's headquarters, the Digivices were taken along with the eight DigiTama by Gennai; Yagami Hikari's Digivice was lost along with Tailmon's DigiTama. The other seven Digimon looked after their Digivices after hatching, until they were drawn into the real world and appeared before their seven bearers at a summer camp in 1999, before taking them to the Digital World.[2] During the travels of the seven Chosen, Takaishi Takeru briefly gave up his Digivice under the influence of Pico Devimon, but soon reclaimed it.

Hikari's Digivice eventually appeared in her Odaiba home in the real world, but was taken away by her cat Meeko and promptly lost elsewhere in Tokyo before she noticed its existence; Izumi Koushiro attempted to track it to find the then-unidentified eighth Chosen Child, but failed. Wizarmon later returned it to Hikari upon identifying her to Taichi as the eighth Chosen.

Digimon Adventure 02[edit]

Hikari and Takeru's Digivices were upgraded to D-3s upon coming in proximity to their Digimentals; Ichijouji Ken's Digivice was also upgraded to a D-3 at some time earlier. The remaining six Chosen Children of the original group, along with every other Chosen Child based around the world, retained their original Digivice models; however, these Digivices were at something of a disadvantage, as the Dark Towers of the Digimon Kaiser inhibited their ability to evolve partner Digimon, and they were unable to open Digital Gates to access the Digital World at will.

Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time[edit]

During their work in DigiQuartz, Yagami Taichi, Ishida Yamato and Tachikawa Mimi continue to use their original Digivices.

Video Games[edit]

Digimon World[edit]

Hiro can obtain a Digivice in place of his initial Digital Monster, depending on whether or not the player answers "yes" to a question at the beginning of the game pertaining to it. It has no specific use beyond the basic functionality of the Digital Monster.

Digimon Adventure: Anode Tamer & Cathode Tamer[edit]

Akiyama Ryou wielded Yagami Taichi's digivice, received from Taichi's partner Agumon, for the duration of the game, in order to free Taichi and the other Chosen from Millenniumon. As it was not his actual Digivice, Ryo was not able to use it to evolve Agumon; its main functionality was to purify the servants of Millenniumon and convert them to aiding Ryo.

Digimon Adventure[edit]
