Digimon World is one of the PS1's most unique and awesome games. One of the
things that makes it so awesome is all of the glitches! Since it's
release in 2000, many gamers have discovered plenty of them that either
help or harm the game, while others are just plain odd. Regardless of their
effects, the majority of them are really fun to exploit! And this FAQ will
give you all of the info on all of the game's glitches (and there are plenty
of them too!)

What is a glitch?
Glitches in video games are defined as occurences that aren't exactly
supposed to happen, an error in the game's programming that may be temporary
or even permanent. Digimon World is LOADED with read on to
discover them all!

A. Name Glitch

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes, it lasts until you load your game.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*

When you continue your saved game, sometimes your Digimon's name is screwed
up and contains extra letters such as "monn." An example: Greymon being
refered to as "Greymonmon."

B. MetalMamemon's confusion
Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Not really. The MetalMamemon will always refer to
himself as MetalGreymon on every game, at least until you recruit him.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
The MetalMamemon you can recruit in Factorial Town thinks he's a
MetalGreymon.The text pop-up that appears will refer to him as one every
time you encounter him.

C. Agumon's Item Bank Disappearance

Harmful? No.
Temporary?: Yes, when you exit and check the item bank again, things will
be normal unless it happens again. Or you can scroll down and up again
while highlighting the items in the bank.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
When you go to Agumon's Item Bank, switching from stored
items to in-hand items makes it so that some items get "rubbed out" on
the screen. You may only be able to see half of the name of an item,
or nothing at all.

D. Giromon's Jukebox Glitch

Harmful?: Yes. Causes your game to freeze, and the only escape is to
reset your console.
Temporary?: No. It's Permanent.
Probably the most famous glitch, Giromon is a digimon that you can
recruit from Factorial Town. Upon recruiting him, he sets up a Jukebox
in the resturant. He claims you can listen to some tunes, but as soon
as you try to do that, the game locks up and forces you to reset. There
have been some reports of people managing to scroll through the song list
for a few seconds before the game locks up, but I wouldn't recommend
fooling with it.

*Apparently, only NTSC verisons of the game suffer this glitch. PAL
gamers have reported that the Jukebox works fine in their games.*

E. Factorial Town's Guardromon Blockage

Harmful?: Yes, it will either cause your game to freeze, or
will block you so that you can't move or escape unless you have an
auto pilot.
Temporary?: No, it's permanent.

Inside one of the factory's area (the place where two Guardromon are
blocking your path to a door, and where a black platform is on the
left that leads to two item PC's), interacting with the left
Guardrmon triggers a glitch. You will either be frozen on his
words, or you'll engage in a battle with him, but your character
ends up running to a section of the background while preparing to
shout the orders, and you can't move at all so you'll be stuck there
forever unless you have an auto pilot.

F. The Medal Glitch

Harmful? No, in fact it's more helpful since it allows you to see which
medals you still need!
Temporary?: Yes.

In order for this glitch to work, you'll need the top left medal (which is
earned by winning the D, C, B, S, and S tournaments at the Arena.)
If you have it, bring up the medal chart and place your cursor on a medal
that you don't have. Now, press triangle twice to return to the main menu.
Highlight "Digimon" and press X to see your Digimon's stats. As soon as
you see your Digimon's picture, press triangle to exit back to the main
menu. Highlight"Player" and press X. Press right twice to highlight
"medals" and press X. Now you will be able to see both the name and
the requirements for the absent medalthat you highlighted in the first step.
G. The Card Glitch

Harmful?: Yes, there's a possiblitiy of it freezing your game.

Temporary?: No, you can't get rid of it unless you reset the
game or it freezes.

converted by
In order for this glitch to work, you need to have at least one
card. Go to the card collection screen and select a card to bring
up it's enlarged picture. Quickly hit triangle, X, and triangle,
and the card should be there. Keep hitting the triangle button, and
the card will be frozen on the screen! You can still walk around with
the card's picture on the screen, and bringing up the menu's digivolution
chart shows you some screwed up imagery.
H. Myotismon's Mansion Freeze
Harmful? Yes, it freezes your game.
Temporary?: No.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
When you defeat Skull Greymon and Myotismon returns to his place in the
dining hall, you will be able to access this glitch. If you return to
the caged area where Myotismon and Bakemon were being held, then enter
the area, your game will freeze.

I. Myotismon's Text is missing

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: No, it always happens.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
Once you save Myotismon from Skull Greymon, you will find him
sitting in the dining hall of Grey Lord's Mansion. Myotismon proceeds
to tell you about his research. A chunk of Myotismon's words are lost,
though. He says "My research shows that sometimes, when Metal Greymon
fades away, he _____________________. It's the same thing for Bakemon,
Devimon, and Phoenixmon,although we don't know who they were at birth.
The digivolution charts don't say."Apparently, the missing text is
believed to be "Digivoles to SkullGreymon", because it makes sense.
J. Enemy Freeze #1: BlueMeramon

Harmful?: Yes, it freezes your game.

Temporary?: No, it always happens.

One of the BlueMeramons in the Back dimension will freeze your game
if you encounterhim. There is no way out of this from what I know.

K. Enemy Freeze #2: ClearAgumon

Harmful?: Yes, it freezes your game.
Temporary?: No, it always happens.
In Toy Mansion, there is an area with a row of three ClearAgumons.
The third one on theleft, when encountered, has it's text pop-up keep
re-appearing over and over, thus the only way to escape this glitch
is a reset.

L. Enemy Freeze #3: Agumon

Harmful?: Yes, it freezes your game.
Temporary?: Sometimes, it may not always happen.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
There is an agumon by the enterance to Orgemon's hideout, and upon
engaging battle with him, as soon as his text pops up, the game may

M. Drimogemon's Treasure Glitch

Harmful?: Technically, yes, since it costs you to lose an item!
Temporary?: Not really, it always happens unless you are prepared.

If you are going to get an Item back from Drimogeomon, make sure your
inventory is not full! If it is, it will say: "Clear your inventory!"
And you will lose the Item.
(Thanks HWS_Dark!)

N. Greymon's Arena Glitch

Harmful?: No, it's quite useful.

Temporary?: No, it usually always happens.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*

When you are signing up for a Tournament, you might see this glitch.

It's kind of hard to explain so here is an Example:

| 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 |
|S |B |D |A |D |
|G |A |C |S | |
| F | W* | | ** | |
| | N* | | ** | |
| | | | | |

When you press START, you should be able to see a Description of the Cup. The
glitch works like this: If you press START on the letters with the * it will
make an error noise. Then again, if you press START where you see the ** the
description of a Cup will be there!
(Thanks HWS_Dark!)

O. Digimon Curling

Harmful?: Depends, it could be useful or annoying.

Temporary?: Yes.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*

When you are playing curling with Penguinmon or MetalMamemon, when you
throw your "disk" it might freeze the game for about 2 or 3 seconds. After
that instead of the "disk" going to the right place, it will go to a totally
different location! This glitch might help or destroy your perfect score!!!
(Thanks HWS_Dark!)

P. Permanent poop

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: No, permanent.
Sometimes, when your digimon poops, it may get stuck in a location where
a numemon or sukamon cannot reach it, so that means it's there forever!

Q. MP comsumption bonus
Harmful?: Yes, it usually freezes your game.
Temporary?: Yes.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*

After a battle, there is a very small chance it may say, in the spot where
it informs you if you get item drop or tech learned, "MP Consumption bonus."
It will then cause the game to freeze, or it may not. It has happened to me
twice, the first time it froze and the second time it didn't.

R. Jijimon's Refusal of the Medal

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes.

If your prosperity rate is 100, Jijimon is supposed to reward you with a

medal.Unfortunately, if your tamer level is 10, he won't give it to you
until you lower it at least to 9....odd.
S. Getting the Amazing Rod before the Old Rod

Harmful?: Techincally, yes, since it forces you to buy the Amazing

Rod again.
Temporary?: Not really, it always happens unless you prevent it.

This is quite annoying and unfortunately happened to me on my very first

playthrough.I encountered ShogunGekomon before I went through the Trash
Mountain. I decidedto buy the Amazing Rod from him, since I didn't know
about the other fishing rodin Trash Mountain. Eventually I go to Trash
Mountain, see the rod, and I pick it up. The Old Rod now replaced my
amazing rod, so I had to buy it again!
T. The Black Bar

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes.
*This glitch occurs only in the NTSC version.*
Some people have reported an odd black bar-like structure appearing
in File City (the main area, where the shops and arena are located)
The black bar does not do anything, it just looks odd. You can walk
over/through it. It may eventually disapear or it might always be
U. Agumon at Orgemon's Fortress Glitch

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Not really, remember to save before encountering him.

The problem only seems to occur on some European games. Apparently, the
Agumon outside Ogremon's fortress initiates a battle even after Ogremon's
first defeat. This seems to be random and the main countermeasure is to
save first.

(Thanks HalfMillennium!)

V. The H-Kabuterimon Glitch

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes.

Viewing HerculesKabuterimon on the Digivolution chart then viewing any other

Digimon can place "mon" several spaces after its name. It's harmless and can
be turned off by leaving the chart.

(Thanks HalfMillennium!)


A2: Easy Finish

converted by
Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes.
1.You must have the "change" command.
2. Go into the battle and when you have low MP [like 10] you must
hit your enemy with your finish attack.
3. Then rapidly press X on "change" command.
If you did it correctly your digimon may use the Finish attack again.
B2: DG Dimension Glitch

Harmful?: No.
Temporary?: Yes.
Take a Digimon who can use DG Dimension to Toy Town, and enter the Toy Mansion.
When you fight Tankmon or ToyAgumon on one of the upper floors, make sure that
your Digimon uses DG Dimension. When he does, the question-mark doors should
disappear, revealing three sets of stairs. This doesn't really have any point
to it, it's just kind of funny that the doors keep disappearing.
(Thanks VMoran!)

C3: Getting stuck during battle

Harmful?: Yes.
Temporary: No.
It can happen anytime, aganist any digimon. Your digimon will end up getting
stuck in a piece of the background or whatever, and he won't be able to move
around or attack besides the finish move. There is no way out of this from
what I know.


A3: Old Tanemon

Harmful?: Not really.
Temporary?: Yes, if you turn him into Kunemon.

There is a small chance of your Tanemon living up to age 11! It won't digivole
at all (unless you sleep in Kunemon's bed.) The chances of Tanemon living
this long is very low, but it has been reported many times.


A4: Happy Mushrooms

Harmful: No.
Temporary?: Yes.
To activiate this glitch, find a Happy Mushroom, collect it, and then 'Drop'
it. Go back on that screen it should be there again. Then if you get it
again and keep entering and exiting the screen you can get up to 99
Happy Mushrooms!!!

B4: Infinite Steaks

Harmful: No.
Temporary?: Yes.

After you've read the memo in the fridge in Grey Lord's Mansion, get
outside and there'll be a steak lying down. Grab it and go inside the
mansion and then get outside again, there'll be another steak! Repeat
this until you have 99 steaks!

C4: Mojyamon Money Glitch

Harmful: Yes, though it's helpful too.

Temporary?: Yes, it lasts up until you recruit the Mojyamon.
The southwestern Mojyamon will trade you 2,000 bit Disks
in return for 500 bit med. recoveries, but at a price. When you trade
with this Mojyamon, he likes to move around a little. Eventually, you
get stuck, and there's no getting away from the Mojyamon. Or is there?
ALWAYS CARRY AN AUTO PILOT WITH YOU! I can't stress that point enough.
Even if you do get stuck with the Mojyamon, an Auto Pilot can save the
day. It's a whole lot better than restarting your game, isn't it?
Trust me, once the Mojyamon locks you in, there's only one way of
getting out. That's the Auto Pilot. This glitch is HARMFUL only if you
don't heed my warnings and carry an Auto Pilot with you at all times.
Oh, and there is a funny thing about this glitch. Trade with the
Mojyamon enough, and eventually you should see the Mojyamon that
usually sits in the middle come dancing towards you. The glitch with
the southwestern Mojyamon does something to the middle one which makes
him dance on the water, apparently going no where.

(Thanks VMoran!)
D4: Digitamamon Glitch

converted by
Harmful?: No, very helpful.
Temporary?: No.

If you want your Digimon's stats to increase to 999 and 9999,

you must follow these steps:
-Have Digitamamon Recruited
-Have atleast 300,000 bits
-Have a hungry Digimon

Now, talk to Digitamamon when he appears in the resturaunt and order

the cheapest food item there once your digimon is hungry. Even if he
isn't hungry, repeat the process untill you run out of bits. Now, your
Digimon's stats will have greatly increased. Do this as many times as
you want, even with a fresh or in-training Digimon! It makes getting
ultimates alot easier. Stats such as brains, hp, etc. increase about +3
each time you feed them digitamamon's food. Although it make take a half
hour to get all stats to 999 and 9999, it is much easier than training
and using stat chips.

E4: 99 Stat Chips

Harmful?: No, very helpful.
Temporary?: No.

Requirements: Card shop open, a stat chip or two, restore item.

1) Keep stat chip(s) in your inventory, and keep a large amount of money
on hand.
2) Get a weak digimon, such as a baby or in-training.
3) Go into battle and get him killed, twice. Second time around have
the item "Restore" with you.
4) Do this until the chips get stolen, then go to the card shop's recyled
items section and buy them all (up to 99.) According to a Youtube video,
the person who does this glitch bought just one stat chip, then quickly
went back to the 'recycled items' menu and moved the cursor over the
blank area under the Restore item, pressed X and it allowed him to
continue buying stat chips, though it glitched up his bits.
