A cult RPG series by Creator/MediaVision and published by XSEEDGames, ''Wild [=ARM=]s'' combines classic RPG gameplay with a wild west/SteamPunk [[CattlePunk setting and influence]]. Take the best parts of ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' and toss in some ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'' for good measure and you've got most installments of ''Wild [=ARMs=]''. The series currently has seven installments. The [=ARM=] in the title refers to the guns used by various characters. The reason it is capitalized is because it is an acronym that [[MeaningfulName means something different in each game]].

While the franchise hasn't enjoyed the massive success of Square-Enix's {{RPG}}s, it has managed to build up a loyal fanbase, especially in Japan where the first five games have all managed to become part of the "Playstation The Best", which is similar to the Greatest Hits and Platinum Range labels.

* ShoutOut: [[spoiler:Siegfried]] might as well have been called [[SoulSeries Nightmare]] in Wild Arms 3. There are also many recurring names and events throughout the series, and every single playable character is seen as an NPC in 5.
