1. To begin with, the Digimon protagonist wasn't a half-rat-half-toaster but A RAD DINOSAUR.
2. And when he evolves, he puts on this crazy mask and looks scary as hell.
3. And then he evolves into the cover of a power metal album, because why the hell not?
4. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! Ever see a pokémon evolve into one of these? I didn't think so.
5. His best friend is this dog with a sweatshirt.
6. BOOM! NOW IT'S NOT A DOG, IT'S A WOLF AND LATER A WOLF-MAN, AND LATER BACK TO A WOLF AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME MADE OF METAL. HOW YOU LIKE THAT?!
