* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:Sister Nell Dularn in ''Oath''. She follows Garland's orders out of gratitude for saving her life and genuinely feels remorse for her actions. When she is defeated by Adol for the last time, she even thanks him and asks him to save Elena before dying.]]



* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler:Dularn is a girl.]]
* ScamReligion: [[spoiler:Nikolas Garland admits that the religion that he preaches, the Romun Empire's religion, was created to scare children after revealing himself to be bad. If he is being truthful, the currently practiced religion in the Romun Empire is this.]]



* StormOfBlades: In ''Ys: The Oath in Felghana'', Dularn's attacks consist of this and BeamSpam.

*** Yunica Tovah, granddaughter to one of the priests of Ys, and the ancestor to a side-character from the first game. Her play-style is reminiscent of Adol's from ''Ys III: The oath in Felghana'' and ''Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim'', except she uses AnAxeToGrind.

'''Ys''' (typically pronounced "ees"[[note]]Basically like "geese" without the G; this pronunciation is the one used by the series' current localization publisher, Creator/XSEEDGames[[/note]], though "yees" was used instead in the English localization of ''Ys: The Ark of Napishtim'') is a LongRunning ActionRPG video game franchise developed by Creator/{{Falcom}} and published by its developer in Japan and currently published by Creator/XSEEDGames in North America and Europe, with a ''large'' number of companies having localized licensed ports in the past (such as the [[UsefulNotes/TurboGrafx16 TurboGrafx-CD]] versions) that has spanned over twenty years and thirteen consoles. Nearly all titles chronicle the adventures of Adol Christin, a [[TheDrifter wandering]] [[HeroesPreferSwords swordsman]] with [[RedHeadedHero fiery red hair]] who always seems to be in the right place at the wrong time as far as [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt world-threatening disasters]] are concerned. The eponymous "Ys" is a [[FloatingContinent mythical island floating in the sky]], which is visited in some games and merely referenced in others.

For the longest time, the franchise suffered from extensive NoExportForYou syndrome after the series' lackluster initial release push in the early 1990's, the primary reason why ''Ys'' was practically unheard of outside of Japan for so long. Beginning with the release of ''Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim'' on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 and [=PlayStation=] Portable, ''Ys: Book I & II'' on the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} UsefulNotes/VirtualConsole, and ''Legacy of Ys: Books I & II'' for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, the games started to reach a much wider audience, with XSEED Games having announced a partnership with Falcom in since 2010 that includes the localization of ''VideoGame/YsSEVEN'', ''Ys: The Oath in Felghana'', and ''Ys I & II Chronicles'' for the [=PlayStation=] Portable in the North American market, in that order. By March 2012, XSEED and Falcom followed this up with a series of releases on the UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} service of Creator/ValveSoftware, starting with the original Windows version of ''The Oath in Felghana'' and the Japan-only ''Ys Origin'', continued by a further-updated PC version of ''Ys I & II Chronicles''[[note]]Ironically giving ''English-speakers'' the definitive version of that compilation[[/note]]. Finally, both companies capped it off with the release of ''VideoGame/YsMemoriesOfCelceta'', Falcom's definitive version of the ''Ys IV'' duology on the UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita, released in English in November 2013. For reasons not made public, XSEED did not take the reigns on on 2017's ''Ys VIII'' localization and...[[BlindIdiotTranslation the results were not positive.]]
