** Alicesoft really, '''really''' likes {{Anime/Gundam}}. You'd be hard-pressed to find a game of theirs that doesn't reference a character or mobile suit somewhere.

** TADA, the former head of Alicesoft and creator of Rance himself is prone to going off on tangents, making up lore for his universes off the top of his head and randomly shouting "{{Moe}}!" in the middle of conversation. Naturally, he is the inspiration for the MascotMook hannies.

** Pretty much every Alicesoft protagonist is like this, with the exception of Rouga, who values men and women equally, and Tougou, who vastly prefers women but has no problem working with men.

** ''Mamatoto'', while still covering dark themes, has perhaps the most traditional hero of any Alicesoft game ever and makes almost all sex scenes completely optional, to the point where one could play through the entire game and only see two of them. As a tradeoff, however, the optional sex scenes are almost all rape courtesy of the protagonist's ManipulativeBastard DirtyOldMan of a father.

* ObliviouslyEvil: For a degree of "evil", if the heroes of Alicesoft games (Rance, of course, being the biggest example) do morally reprehensible thing like rape, torture, etc, it's generally because they run off the InsaneTrollLogic that heroes don't do evil things, and they're the heroes, so if they do said act then they're not evil. It's actually a plot point in Rance's case, as he was subjected to a power that uses a person's inner evil to destroy them, and he was unaffected because he doesn't comprehend that he does evil things and thus has no inner evil. It generally helps that the villains in their games are usually far more cruel and depraved than the protagonists and revel in being evil.

Added DiffLines:

* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Designated Heroes Have Standards]]: Rance can be a pretty horrible person, but he hates racism (especially notable in ''Rance VI'') and [[BerserkButton goes ballistic]] when confronted with pedophilia.

** TADA also has examples of Author ''Unappeal'' as well, at odds with some of the other staff members. Primarily the Rance series' [[CaptainErsatz half-assed policy on monster design]] and his dislike of {{Lolicon}}.

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.
