The story of all incarnations is ''very loosely'' based on the Persian epic ''Amir Arsalan''. It takes place in a fantasy setting reminiscent of ancient Middle East and feature the warring states of Pars and Lusitania (Pars is roughly the same as Persia/modern Iran). The king of Pars--Andragoras--demotes one of his most loyal generals--Daryun--on the word of a man who proves to be a traitor. During a battle between the Lusitanians and Parsians the Lusitanians achieve victory and Daryun escapes with the crown prince of Pars--Arslan. The story details the ventures of Daryun and Arslan as they attempt to reclaim Pars and gain revenge against the Lusitanians while facing innumerable obstacles between them and their goals.

The series was on hiatus at 13 volumes but two more volumes were published as of late and 16th is planned to be the last; the first having been published in 1986 and the series not yet complete, although volume 7 marks a sort of halfway conclusion.

* AloneWithThePsycho: Arslan is cornered by [[spoiler: Hilmes]] while walking alone on top of the Peshawar's walls. It's made clear that [[spoiler: Hilmes]] was toying with Arslan when the former could have easily killed him.

* MookHorrorShow: This occurs whenever Daryun enters in battle where he easily kills anyone in his way, most notably to the invading Lusitanians and Shindrians.

* PleaseWakeUp: A variation with Kishward's young son whose grandfather was one of the Marzban travelling with the king. Despite Gieve reporting to the boy and his mother that [[OffWithHisHead his head]] was on display during the Ecbatana siege, the boy kept asking where his grandfather was and that he wouldn't lose in a fight.

* {{Foil}}:
** Arslan and [[spoiler: Hilmes]]. Both are royalty and are seeking to reclaim their throne but where Arslan genuinely cares for all civilians and even those from other countries, [[spoiler: Hilmes]] would fight and sacrifice anyone who went against his ideals. Narsus points out the difference between Arslan and [[spoiler: Hilmes]] to the latter in their encounter. [[spoiler: Hilmes]] quickly ordered Narsus to serve him when Arslan asked Narsus to help him as a favor.
** Arslan and Gadhevi. Highlighted especially in chapter 47 where it is seen how they treat their subordinates. While Arslan kindly offered warm food and wine to the soldiers, Gadhevi harshly ordered his soldiers to feed drugs to their elephants to provoke them into a frenzy for the upcoming battle, even killing one when they protested.


Added DiffLines:

* LickedByTheDog: Or in this case, by a hawk. One indication to Arslan that Jaswant is not as bad as he appears to be is that Asrael liked him, having offered Jaswant food twice.
