Digimon Frontier (デジモンフロンティア, Dejimon Furontia) is the fourth animated series of Digimon.

News about this first came when it was officially announced by Toei in December 2001, when it was given the tentative title "Digimon Scanners" (デジモンスキャナーズ). The first images of the protagonists as well as their names, their respective Digimon evolutions and the title of the series was released in the March 2002 edition of the V-Jump.

This season aired 50 episodes which were broadcasted on Sundays at 9:00 AM - 9:30AM UTC+9 on Fuji TV, replacing Digimon Tamers (デジモンテイマーズ) commencing on April 7, 2002 and ending on March 30, 2003. Its timeslot was replaced by Konjiki no Gash Bell!! (金色のガッシュベル!!) on April 6, 2003. In the United States, episodes were aired on the United Paramount Network (UPN) commencing September 9, 2002 and ending July 14, 2003.

This was originally announced to be the last series of Digimon, however due to successes in franchise sales particularly during the release of Digital Monster X-Evolution two years later, this gave the potential to produce another possible series, which would be launched three years later.

The Digital World was in danger of perishing. A world governed by the 3 Great Angel Digimon. But one of them, Cherubimon, revolted. The balance of the Digital World was destroyed, and it began to disintegrate. The 10 legendary warriors, who in ancient times had saved the Digital World in exchange for their own lives, no longer existed. In this most dangerous time, the spirits of the legendary warriors are presenting a new power to the inhabitants of a different world...the Real World. A group of human children enter the Digital World and themselves become Digimon, embarking on a journey of battle and adventure.

In ancient times, the Digital World was wracked by a major conflict between human-type and beast-type Digimon. Lucemon appeared and brought the war to an end, leading to a period of peace. Lucemon, however became corrupted by power, resulting in him becoming a tyrannical dicator. To combat this, Warrior Ten were able to defeat Lucemon and imprisoned him in the "Dark Area" deep within the center of the Digital World. After this they were separated into two spirits each, likely due to the injuries they sustained during the battle.

After the defeat of Cherubimon, deep from within the Dark Area, Lucemon sends forth his two Royal Knights, Dynasmon and Lord Knightmon, to obtain the Digital World's remaining data in order to fully break the seal in which he was contained. The Chosen encountered the two on multiple occasions as they tore across the Digital World, being defeated countless times as they successfully managed to obtain each area's Digicode until the entire Digital World disappeared.

  • According to the producer, Seki Hiromi, the word 'Frontier' in the title had two meanings - to 'trailblaze' as in "[...] taking the first step into an unknown world [...]" and 'foremost line' because the staff "[...] put enthusiasm to rip the anime's foremost line [...]".[1]
  • The original idea for Digimon Frontier was to do a more battle oriented series held in a 'Battle Stadium', in which a Digimon and a person merged to have a one on one battle. However, the plan apparently changed into a more adventure type series. The original Flamon missed his horn and tail because controlling him was rather difficult. The other fighter in the one image is Gryphmon.
