* NintendoHard: A large amount of their published games throw in some particularly nasty cases of FakeDifficulty, including, but not limited to: CheckpointStarvation, KaizoTrap, numerous boss battle types, SpitefulAI, EarlyGameHell, GuideDangIt, etc, often combined with significant elements of "actual" difficulty.
* SceneryGorn [=/=] SceneryPorn: An amazing mixture of both; when they want to convey the greatness of a scene, they do so with every cent of their budget. And when they want bleakness... let's just say nausea isn't too great of a word.

'''[=FromSoftware, Inc.=]''' 『株式会社フロム・ソフトウェア』 is a Japanese game developer founded in 1986. Mostly known for NintendoHard games involving HumongousMecha and, more recently, their brutally addicting NintendoHard [=Action-RPGs=], ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'', the ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' trilogy and ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}''. Generally speaking, almost every game they make tends to either go against the grain or has something to distinguish itself from the competition.

** Many fans of both ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls/VideoGame/DarkSouls'' looked at a certain interview where he mentioned having ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' on his shelf and blew it out of proportion, ignoring the fact that in the same interview he mostly attributes inspiration to his collection of Western {{Tabletop RPG}}s and FantasyLiterature, significantly basing the ''Souls'' series on the earlier Creator/FromSoftware game series ''VideoGame/KingsField'' and the ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' game books. He [[http://skullknight.net/images/darksouls_berserk1.jpg does say]] in the interview that when Art Designer Masanori Waragai showed him his Catarina armor design, he felt reminded of Bazuso from ''Berserk'' and thought that old design was appropriate for Siegmeyer's character concept, but that's it. Despite {{Fanon}} being that so many characters, monsters, settings, and props are obvious ''Berserk'' references, the only one Miyazaki has actually talked about is more a case of coincidence than inspiration.

** Many fans Fans of both ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' and ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls/VideoGame/DarkSouls'' looked at a certain interview where he mentioned having the ''Souls'' games often talk about ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' being a primary, or even ''the'' inspiration of ''Souls'' based on his shelf and blew it out of proportion, ignoring the fact an interview where Miyazaki acknowledged that he is a ''Berserk'' reader, but that's probably a big exaggeration. For example, after mentioning ''Berserk'' in the same that interview he mostly attributes most of his inspiration for the ''Souls'' games to his collection of Western {{Tabletop RPG}}s and FantasyLiterature, significantly basing the ''Souls'' series on as well as the earlier Creator/FromSoftware game series ''VideoGame/KingsField'' and the ''Literature/FightingFantasy'' game books.

Despite {{Fanon}} being this is one of the few parallels or {{Shout Out}}s he has actually acknowleded. It wouldn't be inaccurate to say that so many characters, monsters, settings, and props are obvious ''Berserk'' references, has had ''some'' influence on the only one Miyazaki has actually talked about is more a case games, such as when he acknowledged that the greatsword artes and playstyle in Dark Souls 3 were inspired by Guts, but {{fanon}} tends to blow it out of coincidence than inspiration.proportion and treat ''Dark Souls'' as if it were practically ''Berserk'' with the serial numbers filed off.

* [[invoked]]BigNameFan: Company president and director-in-chief Hidetaka Miyazaki has ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' and ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' on his shelf, although fans have blown this out of proportion and described the whole series as being an homage to ''Berserk'' when in fact GodNeverSaidThat. As of Bloodborne, fans are speculating that he has been on a [[Creator/HPLovecraft Lovecraft]] binge.

** After ''VideoGame/DarkSouls1'' came out, ThatOneBoss The Bed of Chaos was so poorly-received that it was said that Miyazaki had publicly apologised for it being so bad. He actually made no such apology.
