The four seasons that made up this series each had a different set of young heroes (or digi-destined as they were known), new enemies and digimon. The third season set the digital world as not a parallel world but as a virtual reality game (in a similar vein to the MMORPG computer game genre), but one which causalities could still affect the real world. The fourth season, rather than hold on to the set traditions of the previous seasons; combined the digi-destined and the digimon so that they became the same entity and digivolve themselves. Even so, references to the previous heroes (and especially the originals) would crop up during the animťís entire run.
