[[caption-width-right:350:The main Thousand Arms cast]]

A lesser-known Playstation RPG - with a dating sim thrown in. An evil emperor wishes to use the Primordial Flame to become a god and destroy the world. Meis Triumph, Spirit Blacksmith, must journey to protect the Flame and defeat the emperor, as well as date as many ladies as possible (it actually does fit into the plot!) A hilarious game full of flirting, sexual innuendo, LampshadeHanging, and of course some RPG adventure. Done by the same people who created ''SakuraTaisen''.

'''Characters:'''
* Meis Triumph: Horny Spirit Blacksmith.
* Sodina Dawnfried: Knife-weilding WhiteMagicianGirl, main love interest out of a bushel of love interests for Meis. For some reason, she likes him back.
* Muza Grifford: Meis' {{BFS}} carrying best friend. Freezes up around women, but manages to fall for Wyna.
* Wyna Grapple: {{Stripperific}} pirate girl who wants to live her own life, and thus is often at odds with her father.
* Kyleen Nelphe: Jaded and money-loving, her personality warms up due to the PowerOfFriendship.
* Soushi Maharoba: [[DudeLooksLikeALady Pretty]] samurai playboy.
* Nelsha Stylus: Desires to be a Dress Master. A little girl, but appears much older when dressed in her possessed clothing.
----
!!This game provides examples of:

* AnimeThemeSong: Ayumi Hamasaki performs the opening and ending themes.
* {{BFS}}: Muza.
* BerserkButton: General Bolt. He's a nice guy, but he isn't very smart and hates big words. ("I DON'T LIKE DIFFICULT WORDS!!!") When a female junior officer accidentally trips, he forgives her, but after she mentions he is "chivalrous" and "sagacious", he expands his body and spews out bolts which kill every officer in the room.
* BlowYouAway: ALL of Muza's skills are wind-based (''Twister'' Blade, ''Storm'' Binder, Dynamic ''Cyclone'', ''Tornado'' Voice)
* BlueWithShock: Muza, around girls.
* CameraScrew: It'll make you dizzy.
* CampGay: Bandiger.
* TheCasanova: Meis. He flirts with every female he meets, pledges his eternal love to each of the nine girls he dates, and many NPC women yell at him for touching/looking at things he shouldn't. Most of the other males in the game fit this trope as well.
* CoolBoat: The Langoud. It's an entire pirate city!
* CurseCutShort
* DatingSim
* DeadLittleSister: Or rather, dead older brother.
* DirtyOldMan: Kanouha.
* DistressedDamsel: Sodina has to be rescued on a couple different occasions.
* DoomedHomeTown: However, both towns recover.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: The usual elemental spells, and weapons' elements can be changed depending on which girl is helping with the forging. There is also ''literal'' rock paper scissors.
* EternalEngine: Mounthand.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Random [=NPCs=] have such names as Middle Aged Man and Sexy-Lipped Woman.
* EvilOverlord: The Emperor.
* EyepatchOfPower: Wyna. She admits to having two good eyes.
* FirstGirlWins: Sodina. Though technically Mil was first...
* FloatingContinent: Sharan.
* FrothyMugsOfWater: Chili, eh?
* GoldfishPoopGang: Bandiger.
* HeroesPreferSwords: The majority of main characters use blades.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Sodina. She gets better.]]
* ImpoverishedPatrician: Named after Meis in the [[ConsoleRPGCliches1To24 list of RPG cliches]].
* InfinityPlusOneSword
* ItemCrafting: Weapons aren't purchased. The blacksmith hero forges them (with the aid of girls he dates).
* JerkAss: Schmidt.
** TookALevelInJerkAss: Schmidt after his painfully unsurprising [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn]].
* LampshadeHanging
* LastDiscMagic: [[spoiler: Sodina becomes the Ultimate Summon for the final battle. This should be a good indication to players that using her throughout the rest of the game is completely pointless.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: Each character gets their own theme tune.
* LevelUpAtIntimacy5
* LimitedWardrobe: Lampshaded.
* MediumAwareness
* MinigameZone: MonsterTown Zozotto is full of casinos.
* MonsterTown: Zozotto, town of Damashi.
* MoreFriendsMoreBenefits
* TheObiWan: Jyabil: He looks about the right age to be a BigBrotherMentor, but he's much older, and acts like it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Jyabil and Metalia. Jyabil appears to be in his late twenties, and it's not until well after he dies that Meis learns that he must have been decades older. Metalia appears to be about the same age, and as his senior under the same blacksmith master is probably a little older.
* OneWingedAngel
* ParentalBonus: The whole game is full of such jokes and innuendos, such as a little boy NPC innocently wondering where his father's 'resurrection' is, as his mother will kick him out if he doesn't have it.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The Evil Mecha 5.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler:Nelsha]]
* RelationshipValues
* ReverseTrap: A cloaked figure attacked the party, and then Muza fights that figure using his wind sword specials, blowing the cloak and revealing [[spoiler:a very {{Stripperiffic}} girl, Wyna]].
* {{Shout Out}}: Ratchet, the pink and red clad jester girl, is modeled after ''Batman:The Animated Series'' character Harley Quinn. Her constant references to the Dark Master as "Mr. D" are reminiscent of Harley calling the Joker "Mr. J". Ratchet also has a high, squeaky voice and thick Brooklyn accent.
* SlippySlideyIceWorld - The Lucent Cave
* SteamPunk
* {{Stripperific}}: Wyna. Strangely, she's the only female mistaken for a man at one point...
* TedBaxter: Meis, of course. He is especially full of himself in some of the dating answers (Not many men are as good-looking as I am!).
* ThirdPersonPerson: Nelsha
* TokenMiniMoe: Nelsha. Unless she's wearing some of her possessed clothes. Yes, Meis can date her. It gets a bit creepy when he gives teddy bears to a 12 year old to get a kiss.
** Or it could be thats just an [[ObfuscatingStupidity act]] and the real girl is the one that comes out whenever she's angry.
* WhiteHairedPrettyBoy: Well, Schmidt's hair is more pale blue...
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Sodina fits this trope quite well, despite using a knife for her weapon.
* WorldMap
* {{Wutai}}: Wano. The player never gets to visit there, as it's destroyed first.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Blue, green... it ''is'' anime-styled.
