Digimon Tamers (TV)
Go back to Digimon Tamers main page
The writer for the series, Chiaki Konaka, has been known to add Lovecraft references into any anime he works on (from the Dagon monster on "The Big O", to the episode "The Call of Dagomon" on Digimon Adventure 02). Digimon Tamers is no exception. The secret organization that tries to destroy Wild Ones is called Hypnos, named after a god of dreams in Lovecraft's literature, who prevents human's dreams from going beyond the dreamscape. Yuggoth, a deletion program introduced early into the anime, is the name given to the planet Pluto in Lovecraft's stories. Shaggai, another deletion program introduced later on, is a planet outside of Earth's solar system in Lovecraft's stories. Finally, much later in the series, a university professor is interviewed to share his thoughts about the Digimon. In a caption near the bottom of the screen, it shows the university is actually Miscatonic University. In Lovecraft's stories, many bizzare events happen at a university of the same name. Along with this, however, in several shows Konaka has worked on, their has always been an Alice, and to a lesser extent a Reika and a Juri, all three who are in Digimon Tamers.
