Hero Overview

T.K., Call me T.K. and I'm not as small as I look.
~ T.K. Takaishi

Takeru "T.K." Takaishi is one of main characters of Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure 02, Digimon Adventure tri. and Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna. He is the younger brother of Yamato "Matt" Ishida. He is partnered with Patamon, and embodies the trait of Hope.

In the Japanese version, he was voiced by Hiroko Konishi in Digimon Adventure, Taisuke Yamamoto in Digimon Adventure 02, later voiced by Junya Enoki in Digimon Adventure tri. and returned to reprise his role for Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.


In Digimon Adventure 01, T.K. is the youngest Digidestened. He is very well liked by the other kids. True to his nature, T.K. provides the hope needed for all of the other Digi-destined, particularly in moments of despair.

While T.K often appreciates the guidance and protection that his big brother Matt provides, T.K. can also feel suffocated from Matt’s “helicopter parenting”. He also hates it when Matt gets into a conflict or fight with Tai, the leader of the Digidestined.
