Continuing on with the rewatch of Digimon Adventure for the Digimon subreddit in the leadup to the Digimon Adventure Reboot coming in April, here’s my Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 41 review!
I love how prominent Seadramon is in both Adventure and 02; we get his adult to mega evolutions this season, and next season, not only does MegaSeadramon have a cameo, we see a Betamon/Seadramon is another chosen Digimon!
That’s all I really have to say, for memory, MetalSeadramon’s episodes are the worst in this arc and he barely does anything menacing other than being a big sea snake.

Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 41 Review
The children are all fairly depressed about their loss in battles as well as their loss of Digimon friends. The children realise they’re on the beach where they were at the start of their Adventure.
They hear a Digimon needing help, but it turns out to be Shellmon from the start of the series who has somehow gained the ability to talk. Thankfully, the Rookie level Digimon are able to defeat him easily, implying that they have all grown stronger.
Joe and Mimi try to enter a very obvious trap (houses, shacks, and other buildings tend to be traps in this world) set by one of MetalSeadramon’s henchmon, Scorpiomon. Scorpiomon cover the children with sand that makes them pass out, however, Mimi, Joe, and their Digimon avoid the trap.
Scorpiomon chases them, but he ate too many clams so he’s sluggish. Togemon and Ikkakumon fight him when he is, again, distracted by clams, allowing the Champion Digimon to evolve once more.
Tai and the others regain consciousness after the battle. MetalSeadramon then burns the shack, however, the children have escaped and only the unconscious Scorpiomon is ignited. MetalSeadramon is fairly annoyed, so he kills his own henchman.
Joe is doubtful that the chosen Digimon have became stronger as it took two Ultimate level Digimon to defeat Scorpiomon. MetalSeadramon approaches the chosen and they are forced to retreat. Lilymon, being brave, as always, attempts to fight him but is struck by his tail and devolves to Palmon. Zudomon attempts to carry the chosen to safety, but is also defeated by MetalSeadramon and reverts to Gomamon. MetalSeadramon goes in for the kill.
The English dub cuts off a scene where Whamon rescues them and carries them to safety and slots it in at the start of the next episode because yay cliff hangers.
Rating for my Rewatch of Digimon Adventure Episode 41
I’m really glad that the rest of the arc doesn’t follow a formula of ‘the kids show up in domain of a Dark Master who is only a threat for like one episode’ like we’ve seen in later seasons such as Xros Wars.
