Kido Jo is one of the protagonists of Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure tri., and one of the supporting characters in Digimon Adventure 02.

Profile[edit]

Jo starts out a very high-strung and overstressed person. As the oldest of the Chosen Children, he often feels it's his duty to make sure everyone is doing okay. Though nervous and clumsy, he is considered very trustworthy and is an extremely responsible person.

Jo lives with his father and mother. His father is a doctor, as is the Kido family tradition. Jo has two older brothers that moved away from home after Digimon Adventure, Shin and Shuu; Shin is interning to be a doctor, like his father, while Shuu is studying anthropology in Kyoto University under Takenouchi Haruhiko, Sora's father.

Appearances[edit]

Anime[edit]

Prelude to Digimon Adventure[edit]

When Jo was young, he lived in Hikarigaoka with his parents and older brothers, and attended Dai-go Elementary School. On 1995, he witnessed the fight between Greymon and Parrotmon. At the time, he was talking to Shuu, who was at a friend's house. After the fight, which was attributed to a terrorist bombing, his family moved to Odaiba because they didn't want to live in such a dangerous place.

Digimon Adventure[edit]

As a sixth grader, Jo was appointed group leader for camp. As the oldest of the kids, he felt it was his duty to protect everyone. This desire often clashed with his low self-esteem and his tendency to panic, but he tried his best to make himself a worthy member of the team. Though the other children tended to tease him, they appreciated him and knew that he can always be relied on.

Digimon Adventure: Our War Game![edit]

Jo was unable to help in the battle against Diablomon, as he was taking the required exams to pass onto a prestigious private middle school.

Between Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02[edit]

In May 2000, Jo arrived at the Digital World and gave up his Crest power to free the Four Holy Beasts. As a result, Gomamon lost the power to evolve to Perfect.

Later that month, Jo had a discussion with Shin on the phone, in which he told him of his plans to become a Digimon doctor.

Digimon Adventure 02[edit]

Now in his last year in a private middle school, Jo has grown up a lot and became a calmer individual. He is still the same trustworthy and responsible person he had always been, and still doesn't go anywhere without a first aid kit. He is a bit of an older brother figure to Hida Iori, who inherited the trait of Sincerity from him.

Digimon Adventure 02: Digimon Hurricane Touchdown!! Supreme Evolution!! The Golden Digimentals[edit]

Jo was at cram school when a reaction from his Digivice caused him to vanish. He appeared in Chocomon's dimension, where he was deaged to approximately the age of five, the same age Wallace was when he received Terriermon and Chocomon's egg. After Chocomon died, he returned to his original age and location.

Digimon Adventure 02: Diablomon Strikes Back[edit]

While Koushiro rounded up the Chosen Children, Jo was busy trying to figure out if he has been accepted to his new high school. After he confirmed this, Jo rushed over and tried to give Daisuke and Ken his bicycle, so they could arrive at Rainbow Bridge faster. However, Daisuke commented that there were two of them. A girl rode by on a bicycle, so Jo chased her down to borrow hers. Both Jo and the girl arrived at Rainbow Bridge on time to witness the defeat of Armagemon.

25 Years Later[edit]

By 2027, Jo has become a doctor, but hasn't followed the family tradition all the way through; instead of being a doctor for humans, he is the first Digimon doctor. He is married and has a son, who has a Pukamon for a partner.

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

Jo along with Gomamon are seen dealing with Quartzmon in episode 78. Their appearance while silhouetted is animated and voiced unlike the previous cameos from other characters.
