Trivia Edit

  • Ishida's canon relationship with Sora Takenouchi in Digimon 02 sparked controversy among 02 fans due to their relationship being poorly developed and came from out of nowhere. As a slap to the face, it is confirmed years later by the Director of Digimon Adventure that Yamato and Sora were meant to be a couple starting from Adventure.
  • Ishida was the first-ever WWE Toon Eurocontinental Champion, holding both Toon Intercontinental and Toon European Titles at the same time.
  • Ishida is the first wrestler to win UCA Royal Reckoning's Rumble Match at #2.
