- Familial Attributes
Each Digimon belongs to a family. Besides having an good relationship with their fellow family members, certain pieces of equipment and attacks are only available to a specific family. We have classified ten families currently with two "everything else" groups, but expect there may be more we have not had the chance to study yet, so there may be Digimon that may be moved from known to a new set of families.
1. Nature Spirits
2. Nightmare Soldiers
3. Metal Empire
4. Deep Savers
5. Dark Area
6. Virus Busters
7. Wind Guardians
8. Dragon’s Roar
9. Jungle Trooper

Provided is a list of the elements a Digimon may be associated with:
- Digimon Attributes
Every Digimon is born with one of five known distinct attributes that shape their destiny. There may be more attributes which we do not know about yet. Currently, the following have been observed in Digimon:
With the final three there is a clear relationship: Virus trumps Data, but will suffer against Vaccine. Data will conquer Vaccine, but should be wary of Virus. Vaccine will have an advantage over Virus, but needs to be careful of Data.
There may be more relationships that occur within Digimon, and further study will be undertaken in the DATS laboratories.
