* CantHoldHisLiquor: Rance. While he does enjoy alcohol, he tends to try and refrain from drinking it because he is a lightweight to an absurd degree. Sadly, a lot of the men he's come to know as friends (except for [[StraightEdge Rick]]) like to share a drink with him, which generally results in him doing something foolish.

[=AliceSoft=] is an [[HGame eroge]] developer, one of the oldest in existence. Although they are perhaps not as well known as the truly big groups like [[{{Nasuverse}} Type-MOON]] and Creator/KeyVisualArts, [=AliceSoft=] has managed to carve out a niche for itself by incorporating interesting and involved gameplay elements that occasionally challenge the player. Where other developers will eschew gameplay in favour of [[DoingItForTheArt telling a fantastic story]] or cutting straight to the [[PornWithoutPlot heart of the matter]], [=AliceSoft=] embraces it wholeheartedly to the point that many of their works on this wiki could be classified as both {{Video Game}}s and {{Visual Novel}}s.

* JerkassGods: The world of Rance is ruled by a giant SpaceWhale and his children, who created "The Continent" in an excercise of defeating boredom. Everything that goes wrong in this world (and there is a ''lot'' of that) happens only to sate his own lust for entertainment. For example, humans are the third species to have taken control, following Cthulu-esque monsters (who were smart but too squishy) and uberdragons (who were too resilent), while humans can prevail but also can die in so many horrifically entertaining ways.

** BigBadWannabe: As a result of the above information, Kayblis is closer to this.
* BiggerBad: Ludo-Rathowm, the jerkass God that rules the world, he desires entertainment, but sadly he only finds some in suffering, so the entire world, the dark lord system with the Demon King is engineered to give him what he desires.
** It should be added that the world WILL be destroyed if true peace is to ever get achieved.

* TheHedonist: Rance lives exclusively for his own pleasure, and has no real interest in any of the world's affairs despite the massive amount of influence he has on them. Tougou Tsuyoshi is also more interested in sleeping around and having a good time than running a navy, though he takes his job much more seriously than Rance does.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Rance himself. From the point of view of someone who doesn't know the things he has done he is a boastful idiot. He does get himself into dangers he could easily avoid by simply thinking twice what he does. But when he gets serious there is ''nothing'' in the world able to stop him.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldenEnding: Clearing every ending in Rance IX and then watching one last time the true ending shows [[spoiler:Sill getting finally defrosted by Crook thanks to a long ritual and a national treasure from Helman.]]


Added DiffLines:

** This becomes an important plot point in Rance 03 [[spoiler: Gele opens a dimensional rift, rapidly raising her level and Rance's, not even paying attention to him, only to be stunned by facing a level ''560'' Rance, and only that level because she closed the rift due to having met her own limit.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Unlike the previous remakes that averted this trope, Rance 03 changes multiple plot points, some are small, like certain characters joining Rance, others are pretty big, [[spoiler:Like Ithere's fate or Gele's relationship with Rance.]]


Added DiffLines:

** "Force" Leazas' theme in ''Kichikuou Rance'' was remixed in Rance 03 and used in the scenes where the Tulip III is deployed and Rance and his troops are having the greatest battles against Helman forces.


Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: A completely unexpected one from Rance 03 [[spoiler:Dark Lord Ithere was spared by Rance when asked by Shizuka to show him mercy. He was dying from his wounds anyway, but his apostles gave their lives to heal him just enough for him to survive and stay hidden in Leazas Castle.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Hacking into ''Daibanchou'' to allow yourself to control characters who normally aren't playable like [[BigBad Kamui]] or [[KnightTemplar Jeanne]] reveals that they have recorded dialogue for winning and losing battles as well as raising stats, despite never being intended as playable.

* DesignatedHero[[invoked]]: Rance is an iconic example, but Princess Lia from the same series is another perfect example. She's the de facto BigGood of the story but is a childish {{Yandere}} who was the main antagonist of the first game.

** 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:

** 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.

* JerkWithaHeartOfGold: Sure, Rance is a little bit.. lets say "sexually agressive", but he's still a passionate leader, and many of the games show his kindness to his troops and friends.
