** Ryner shares [[Creator/JunFukuyama his seiyuu]] with [[CodeGeass a]] [[RentalMagica few]] [[XXXholic characters]] with magic eyes. The dub took a more specific direction -- given that the eyes are pentagrams, the director of ''BlackButler'' is an interesting choice.

* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Ryner is tsukkomi to almost everyone in the show, but Ferris is the boke most of the times -- [[AbuseIsOkayWhenItsFemaleOnMale a rather violent one who doesn't think she's the boke]]. This is especially obvious in a short story where Ferris writes a book and attempts to strangle Ryner whenever he points out how ridiculous her story is.

* AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale: Ferris to Ryner. Abuse Is ''Also'' Okay When It Is Male On Male applies too in the light novels, with Ryner twisting Sion's arm so badly Sion was afraid his shoulder would get dislocated. [[WouldHurtAChild Ryner]] also knocks Iris out purely to get her to be quiet, so it might be safe to say that Ryner and Ferris are just [[JerkWithAHeartOfGOld jerks]] in general.

* ArtEvolution: Considering [[LongRunner how long the series has been going on for]], this shouldn't be a surprise. The style at the start of the first series and the style at the start of the sequel are virtually unrecognizable as being done by the same artist, and it's only continued to change from there.

Despite its relatively light-hearted premise, this show series is extremely fond of [[MoodWhiplash Mood Whiplashes]]. Prepare yourself for {{Berserk}} undertones.Whiplashes]], with a heavy focus on politics, overcoming trauma, and themes revolving around [[LoveMakesYouCrazy what humans will prioritize above all else]] and [[PowerAtAPrice how far they will go]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist to achieve their goals]].

Over the course of its (on-going) run, the series has generated several spin-offs and adaptations, including an anime adaptation in 2010, created by {{Creator/ZEXCS}} and licensed by Creator/FUNimation, which follows the first series. [[note]]Strictly-speaking, ''Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu'' is the title of the first series, with the sequel being known as ''Dai Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu''.[[/note]] Manga adaptations include the primary manga, which similarly covers the first series, and ''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Revision'', a compressed and alternate version of the story. The series has also spawned a number of [[AudioPlay Drama CDs]] and a [[NoExportForYou Japanese-only]] video game known as ''Legendary Saga''.


Added DiffLines:

* CompressedAdaptation: Both the anime and manga, which cut out various scenes and aspects. It's particularly noticeable in the latter half of the anime, where 9 episodes were used to cover 6 volumes whereas the first half covered 5 volumes in ~15 episodes. Interestingly enough, though, both the anime and manga borrowed content from ''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Anyway'', thus adding {{Filler}} as well.
* ContinuityNod:
** From the primary manga:
*** Claugh can be seen leading the reinforcements after the incident with the Estabul Magic Knights--a reference to ''The Legend of the Fallen Dark Hero'', as it was there and not within the main series that it was revealed that Claugh and Sion met that way.
*** In the map showing Ryner and Ferris's journey for the Heroes' Relics, characters from ''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Anyway'', such as Vois, are displayed, despite not being introduced in the first series or manga.
** In ''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Revision'' manga, which leaves out the majority of the main plot and thus major characters, Sion's allies (i.e. Claugh, Luke, etc.) can be seen when Sion mentions having started a revolution.
** In the anime, when Calne is going over Ryner's past, Germer, Peria, and Pia make cameos.


Added DiffLines:

* PragmaticAdaptation: Of sorts. ''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes Revision'' manga is a compressed version of the series that leaves out most of the main plot and focuses primarily on Ryner's CharacterDevelopment over the course of two volumes.


Added DiffLines:

* AWorldHalfFull: Yes, really. Despite all the negativity in the world, the characters are always shown to ultimately prevail no matter how much trauma is thrown their way, with very few named characters actually crossing the DespairEventHorizon. According to WordOfGod, his hope is that by reading his works, fans will believe that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The anime leaves out why [[RunningGag Ferris is so ready to accuse Ryner of being a pervert]] from the moment they meet, beyond apparently having read up on his personal history. Fans of the novels will know that it relates to an incident with his past instructor (i.e. Germer), which Sion learned about, teased Ryner over, and then passed onto Ferris.


Added DiffLines:

* CasualDangerDialog: Characters are fond of this, Ryner and Ferris especially so. Case in point: their fight with Froaude, who just about treats their [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine interactions]] as some kind of comedy show.


Added DiffLines:

* EmpireWithADarkSecret: [[spoiler:The Roland Empire becomes this during Sion's reign, considering that underneath its peaceful surface, purges and human experimentation are occurring.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: The main trio have a fair number between the three of them.
** Ferris's love for dango, Ryner's love for naps, and Sion's... not quite ''love'' but inclination towards paperwork.
** Ferris beating up Ryner.
** Ferris accusing Ryner of being a pervert and, similarly, spreading lies about him being one to others.
** Sion coercing Ryner and Ferris into doing work for him, with Ryner and Ferris, on the flip side, vowing to assassinate him.

''Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu'' (''The Legend of the Legendary Heroes'') is a 2010 anime series based on a popular series of LightNovels (which also has a {{Manga}} adaptation). It tells the story of Ryner Lute, a young mage who bears an [[MagicalEye Alpha Stigma]], which grants him incredible magic power at the cost of making him go a tiny bit [[SuperpoweredEvilSide insane]] sometimes. After surviving a brutal battle, he is tasked by his friend Sion Astal (who also happens to be the king of Roland, the country they live in) with obtaining relics of the so-called legendary heroes who saved the kingdom from monsters in the distant past.
