* FollowTheLeader: The battle system is pretty much ''DragonQuest'' with the serial numbers filed off. ''4'' introduced the Active Time Battle system pioneered in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''.

Like Sega's own RPG franchise ''PhantasyStar'', ''Cosmic Fantasy'' combined anime presentation with a [[ScienceFantasy mixture of fantasy and sci-fi]]. However, by utilizing the CD format, ''CF'' was among the first such games to rely on fully animated and voice-acted cutscenes not unlike Nihon Falcom's popular ''{{Ys}}'' games or Game Arts' ''{{Lunar}}'' games.

It's also fairly notorious for being one strong case of NoExportForYou -- only [[SequelFirst the second game]] ever saw a release outside Japan, thanks to Working Designs.

Games in this series include:

# ''Cosmic Fantasy: Bōken Shōnen Yū'' (1990)
# ''Cosmic Fantasy 2'' (1991)
# ''Cosmic Fantasy 3: Bōken Shōnen Rei'' (1992)
