* {{Irony}}: ''Toshinden 1'' was marketed by Sony as a "Saturn killer" on its release at the start of 1995. 11 months later, it was ported to the Sega Saturn. So much for trying to keep it Playstation-exclusive.

''Battle Arena Toshinden'' (simply titled ''Toshinden'' in Japan) is ''the'' first 3D {{fighting game}} franchise where every character toted a weapon of some sort (the first series to do it in 2D was ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown''). It was considered a {{killer app}} when it was released as a PlayStation launch title, and Sony promoted it heavily. However, as the years passed by, it got left in the dust, as it was upstaged by other 3D fighting game franchises such as the ''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'', ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'', and the ''[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul]]'' series, who continued to innovate and refine their gameplay while ''Toshinden'' remained stagnant. Not quite as fondly remembered as it was back then, but still worth a look.

In 2009, the series had gotten a {{spiritual successor}} for the {{Wii}} in the form of ''War Budokai'' (simply titled ''Toshinden'' in Japan, but spelled with different kanji characters[[note]]the original PlayStation games are titled 闘神伝, while the Wii version is 闘真伝[[/note]]), a weapons-based arena fighter with heavy anime influences which also incorporate skills such as {{summon magic}}.

There is also evidence of a long deserted plan for a [[http://www.mmcafe.com/archive/news35.htm Toshinden prequel,]] through the pictures found in ''Toshinden Card Quest'', now long known as ''Toshinden Next''. As it stands, ''Next'' was supposed to have delved deeper into the affairs of the four executives of the ''Toshinden'' games, being Gaia, Cupido, Uranus, and Chaos, before what would lead into Gaia's mutiny, and as well into supporting characters mentioned and hinted to in the main series, with the Secret Society's own influences affecting them all as well.

The series also has a 2D [[{{Game Boy}} Game Boy port]]. Unlike [[PortingDisaster other fighting game ports was released on the Game Boy]], it's [[PolishedPort actually quite good and entertaining]]. It includes all the 8 playable characters from the first game and 4 bosses (Gaia, Gaia II, Sho, and Uranus). [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome The background music is also outstanding to say the least]]. One weird fact that distinguish it from other 2D fighting games is that keeps its ''Ring Out'' feature from the 3D games, but it's made in such a way it doesn't break the game balance (you've a 3 points ''Ring Out'' meter; until it gets emptied you don't fall). If you have time in your hands, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8pxUyuwrW4 give it a look]], it's worth it.

* ShoutOut: In ''Toshinden 2'', Chaos had some secret moves via {{some dexterity required}} commands that are blatant references to other fighting games, usually something made by Creator/{{SNK}} (the specific special moves that Chaos does includes [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]]'s Power Geyser, [[VideoGame/ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki]]'s Haoh Shoko Ken, [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kyo Kusanagi]]'s Serpent Wave, and [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Iori Yagami]]'s Dark Thrust).
** As a more blatant example, selecting one of Adam's alternate costumes in ''Toshinden 3'' gives him a human, [[Franchise/StreetFighter Zangief-like]] head.
