Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Demon Lord Gelle did everything in her power to sandbag the Hero System, ensuring that no noble champion would rise up to strike her down. She is instead defeated by NominalHero Rance, who rapes her after she's beaten and abandons her to a very long and lonely imprisonment in the alternate dimension they had fought in. To his credit, he does apologize for doing so as he exits, but it's made clear that a more traditional hero might have been sufficiently moved by her plight to at least try and save her.

* AdaptationalHeroism: In the ''Rance'' series, OdaNobunaga is presented as a laid-back NiceGuy capable of befriending even Rance, who only did atrocious things after getting possessed by an evil demon.

The company began in 1989 making games for the {{PC88}}, {{MSX}} and {{PC98}}. These included a VisualNovel known as ''Intruder'' and the very first ''Rance'' game, chronicling the adventures of everyone's favorite HeroicComedicSociopath as he searched for and "rescued" kidnapped girls. They continued to release games in uninterrupted succession until 2008.

* SpiritualSuccessor: The ''Dai'' games are only similar thematically and mechanically, the universes of each game are completely different.
** ''Rance IX'' contains so many allusions to ''Mamatoto'' both in and out of gameplay that it could honestly be called a remake.

* HardLevelsEasyBosses: Both ''Daibanchou'' and ''Daiakuji'' require large amounts of micromanaging to keep troop morale up, maintain conquered territory and fight off endless swarms of enemies. In comparison, the bosses, though by no means ridiculously easy, are simply stronger versions of normal enemies with powerful special abilities, which shouldn't be a problem for you if you can actually reach them. ''Daiteikoku'' averts this by having a system that makes all fights be predetermined {{Curbstomp Battles}}, meaning bosses simply require confronting with higher stats than normal enemies do.

* 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.



* 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]].



* 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.

* 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 Manga Gamer 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.

* {{Tsundere}}: Considering the number of games they've made, there are plenty. Interestingly, the two stand out examples from the ''Rance'' series, Shizuka and Kanami lean so heavily to the tsun-tsun side that they more or less genuinely ''hate'' Rance, with the few genuine moments of kindness they show towards him leaning more towards "He's not a ''total'' asshole." than anything else. The straightest tsundere in the ''Rance'' series would be Satella, who insists that Rance is her rival despite clearly having feelings for him. Keep in mind that Satella is a demon lord who is most likely hundreds of years old and one of the most powerful characters in the setting.

* TheCasanova: While most of their protagonists are [[ChickMagnet Chick Magnets]], Tougou Tsuyoshi of ''Daiteikoku'' is the only one who fits the character type, being a suave, flirt who constantly sleeps around.
