Taichi "Tai" Kamiya is the protagonist of Digimon AdventureDigimon Adventure tri., and Last Evolution Kizuna and supporting in Digimon Adventure 02.

He is leader of the DigiDestined. He is partnered to Agumon.

Physical Appearance

Tai is a young man with light tan skin, brown eyes, and perpetually fluffy brown hair. He is quite athletic due to his obsession with playing soccer, and commonly dons goggles on his forehead.


He is adventurous and a born leader, and is usually the first to spring into action. He can be a bit headstrong, but means well. However, his preoccupation with being a leader can make him come off as a bit insensitive, tunnel-visioned, and stubborn. His tendency to take charge often gets in the way of his making friends, but as his team later noted when he briefly returned to the real world following the events at Etemon's pyramid, Tai is a true leader, as the group fell apart without him there to keep them focused on their mission.

Tai matured over the course of the series, becoming grounded, cunning, and willing to put himself in danger before others. He often leads by example rather than by simply giving orders, and understanding which of his friends to give the reigns to when he knows he cannot win by his strength alone.

By the time of Tri, Tai has become distanced from his friends, and is far more worried over the consequences of their battles to preserve the balance between the real and Digital worlds. He became hesitant, and even doubtful of what he thought he knew about being a leader in the past. However, despite his concerns, he never lost the courage that so defined him as a child.

Tai is often noted for his goofy sense of humor when dealing with emotionally stressful situations, attempting to diffuse the tension with teasing or sarcastic commentary.

As Tai matured, his natural leadership and desire for peace between the humans and Digimon caused him to pursue a career as diplomat, showing how his capacity to lead never left him.
