* DoingItForTheArt: TADA stepped down from being President of [=AliceSoft=] to make the last few games of the ''Rance'' series, the best thing [=AliceSoft=] has ever made.
** Even though he has officially left the company due to health reasons, Shade (their in-house composer) said that he's making sure he sees the ''Rance'' series through to the end, because he can't see it going on without his scores.


Added DiffLines:

* FanTranslation:
** The only source of English translations of their games, to the point where [=AliceSoft=] themselves encourage them.
** The efforts of the fan translations have caused [=AliceSoft=] to experiment with the idea of giving their games commercial releases internationally, [[PromotedFanboy with the very same fans working on the localizations]].


Added DiffLines:

* FountainOfExpies:
** They do this to themselves. Several character designs and personalities have been recycled in other games.
** ''Big Bang Age'' is on the receiving end of this to VideoGame/RivalSchools.


Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou: Sadly [=AliceSoft=] isn't interested in licensing their work in the west, probably because of the media outbursts similar titles have caused in America.
** [=AliceSoft=] has recently entered a partnership with [=MangaGamer=] to give ''Beat Blades Haruka'' an official localization, with the potential for further commercial releases still on the table depending on how well it sells. Fortunately, it sold well enough that ''Rance 5D'', ''6'', ''Sengoku Rance'', ''Rance Quest'', and ''Evenicle'' are getting official localization!

* [[spoiler:DarthVaderClone: Rance after becoming this demon king in Rance X Part 2 has many traits of this. He wears dark armor with a cape and a helmet that covers his face. He was originally TheHero of his series until [[FaceMonsterTurn he drank the blood]] [[FallenHero of the previous demon king]]. He was originally a swordsman, but gained more strength and [[MagicKnight magical abilities]] after becoming the demon king. He does not want to destroy humanity, but he is struggling to maintain control of himself against the bloodlust of the Blood Soul controlling him. His enemies are his own children, but unlike the [[Franchise/StarWars original]] he has eleven of them who need to work together in order to just stand a chance against him. And at the end of the game he pulls a HeelFaceTurn after the Blood Soul was absorbed by [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Quelplan]] and turns back to normal.]]

** The ending of Rance X represents the idealistic side of the spectrum. [[spoiler:The TopGod Ludo-Rathowm reincarnates into Rance and Crook's child El Mofus in order to experience how life on the continent felt. After an adventure Ludo-Rathowm learns how to appreciate his creations and most importantly empathy. This causes Ludo-Rathowm to dismantle the system his sons have created in order to entertain him. While the world is still divided in ways. There are no more Demon Kings or Heroes that need to create suffering for him. This means that humanity may one day truly attain peace and not get attacked by an Angel Army like in Kichikuou Rance.]]

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The world of the ''Rance'' series is an incredibly cynical place in a constant state of war, with the few occasions peace had been achieved resulting in a complete apocalypse due to it boring the JerkassGods. Despite this, Rance's actions have legitimately shifted things for the better, suggesting that the world ''can'' improve, it just takes a complete sociopath with an insaciable libido to do so.

In a way the golden ending of Kichikuou Rance and Rance X, the final games of their respective timelines, can be seen as part of the opposing side of the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism (despite both games ending with Rance continuing to travel with Sill).
** The ending of Kichikuou Rance represents the cynical side of the spectrum. [[spoiler:The TopGod Ludo-Rathowm still enjoys the suffering of humans in order to entertain himself and launched an attack to slaughter them all after they attained peace. The best Rance could do in the end was put the god to sleep for around three centuries, but the world is still in chaos thanks to the attack and isn't united. This means that Ludo-Rathowm still might get what he wants after sleeping for many centuries.]]

* ZeroApprovalGambit: [[spoiler:Rance willingly takes up the mantle of the Demon King after Kayblis is defeated, becoming the essential new token EvilOverlord of the continent, in order to ensure peace between the Demon realm and Humanity for the future. Only problem is, while he did this with a good purpose to ensure mankind's survival, he is slowly losing himself to the Demon King blood in his body, and as such is slowly turning into [[FallenHero a flat-out villain]] and has begun the cycle of destruction anew. The entire plot of Part 2 revolves around his children teaming up to find a way to defeat him or find a way to bring him back to his senses.]]

* Dirty Coward: A number of characters could fall under this, but Kayblis takes the cake. Despite being by far the most powerful demon other than the Demon King, he has a policy of never getting into a fight if there is even a 0.001% chance he could die. Considering how long he's survived, he might be on to something.

* OrcusOnHisThrone: Kayblis. Even though he's so powerful that he could easily destroy the forces of man by himself, he refuses to budge from his castle unless absolutely necessary. His personal policy is to never get into a fight if there is even a 0.001% chance he could die, and with up to three demon-killing weapons going around on the battlefield, he'd rather just let his subordinates do everything.

* GrandFinale: ''Rance X'' to the Rance and Little Princess series. It's even subtitled ''The Last Rance Series''. The game revolves around a full-on demon invasion of all of the world's nations at once, with long-time BigBad Kayblis at the helm of the demon army. [[spoiler: It eventually ends with a WhereAreTheyNow montage for a number of the main characters, finishing with Rance growing old after a lifetime of adventures, siring many children, and passing peacefully with Sill by his bedside.]]

* BabiesEverAfter: With a franchise like ''Rance'', it would be criminal not to end the game series without this. [[spoiler:Rance has upwards of ''21'' children from different mothers, who all become accomplished people in their own right.]]
