Yamato is best described as "cool". He starts out as a secretive loner, although he is confident and has a good sense of humor. He is usually cool-headed and rational, though he does have a hot temper, which often collided with that of Yagami Taichi and caused conflicts between the two. His younger brother Takaishi Takeru is also one of the Chosen Children. He is very protective of Takeru and often times acts harshly when he is in trouble. He is partnered with Gabumon and is the bearer of the Crest of Friendship.
Yamato is a talented musician and singer. He played the harmonica in Adventure and the bass guitar in 02.
Both of Yamato's parents work in the media; his father, Hiroaki, is a worker at Fuji TV Network, and his mother, Natsuko, is a journalist.
Prelude to Digimon Adventure
Before Yamato's parents divorced, he lived with them and Takeru in Hikarigaoka, where Yamato attended first grade in Dai-yon Elementary School. In 1995, he and his younger brother witnessed the fight between Greymon and Parrotmon.
Yamato's parents divorced shortly following the fight, which was attributed to a terrorist bombing. On Yamato's request, his father took him while his mother took his brother. He and his father moved to Odaiba, where the Fuji TV Network building is located.
Yamato's attitude often clashed with that of Yagami Taichi, the Chosen's unofficial leader. Yamato was much more protective and concerned about the group as a whole, causing much conflict compared to Taichi's head-first strategy. His desire to protect Takeru and act like a good older brother also weighed on his mind.
Before having to return to the Digital World to fight the Dark Masters, he met up with his mother, who he was not very close to. Although Takeru was ecstatic to have his whole family together (if only for a minute), Yamato refused to say much more than hello to his mother. This encounter revealed lingering resentments in him that continue even after he returned to the Digital World. Upon returning to the Digital World, he became angry when he thought Takeru no longer needed him and decided to leave the group for a while. He returned briefly to save the group from Pinocchimon before disappearing again.
Towards the end of the series, he fell into a pit of darkness and was forced to realize that his parents' divorce broke his heart and made him resort to solitude. He refused to let anyone see him cry, which made him turn away from his friends. Gabumon got him to understand that everything would be alright and that he is valuable. Yamato then reunited with Jou, with whom he saved Sora from her own pit of darkness, and rejoined the party just in time for the final battle.
When Diablomon began his rampage over the Internet, Yamato was at his grandmother's place with Takeru. The two rushed to town and enter a barbershop, the only place in town with a computer, and connected to the Internet. With Taichi and Agumon and help from Koushiro, they both battled Diablomon. He and Taichi entered the Internet unintentionally and with the help of all of the kids over the net, War Greymon and Metal Garurumon were able to Jogress into Omegamon. Omegamon was able to defeat Diablomon and Yamato and Taichi came back home.
Between Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02
In May 2000, Yamato arrived in the Digital World and gave up his Crest power to free the Four Holy Beasts. As a result, Gabumon lost the power to evolve to Perfect or Ultimate.
On March 2002, Yamato decided to create a band with three of his classmates, acting as vocalist and bass guitarist. Yamato wanted to name it after Gabumon. As Gabumon has wolf-type evolutions, he decided to name the band "The Teen-age Wolfs".
Yamato's band became very popular by the beginning of the school year. One of his biggest fans was the older sister of Motomiya Daisuke, Jun, which was often used as comic relief. Though he didn't have much time due to band practice, Yamato was still one of the younger Chosen Children's best aides. He has become a closer friend to Taichi, and though he would still punch Taichi on occasion, it was only to knock some sense into him.
Before a Christmas concert the Teen-age Wolves were set to play, Sora decided to approach Yamato and confess that she liked him. He accepted, and they became a couple.
Yamato and Taichi went into the Internet to defeat Diablomon once and for all. After they defeated Diablomon, Omegamon blasted his way out of the Internet to fight Armagemon. The gargantuan Digimon managed to destroy Omegamon's arms, but Imperialdramon came and was given the Omega Sabre, which allowed him to change into Imperialdramon Paladin Mode and defeated Armagemon. When the Kuramon started to appear following Armademon's defeat, Yamato and the others used their Digivices, along with the spectators' cellphones, to delete the Kuramon.
25 Years Later
By the year 2028, Yamato has become an astronaut and is married to Sora. He and Gabumon became the first human and Digimon to land on Mars. He has one daughter who resembles him, with a Pyocomon, and a son with who resembles Sora, with a Tunomon.
Yamato appears with Metal Garurumon so that Taichi may evolve War Greymon into Omegamon.
The first person Daisuke attempted to emulate in order to get more Valentine's Day chocolates from girls was Yamato, although he managed to play the guitar, when it came time to singing and playing Yamato declared him hopeless. During a plan to distract Boltmon via tap-dancing, Yamato declared his feelings for Sora.
