[[caption-width-right:240:The four starting classes. From left to right: The Cleric, the Warrior, The Sorceress, and the Archer. The Tinkerer, the Kali, the Assassin, and the Lencea do not appear.]]

''[[http://dragonnest.nexon.net/ Dragon Nest]]'' is a free-to-play MMORPG by Eyedentity Games and published by {{Creator/Nexon}}. In ''Dragon Nest'', players pick one of eight classes (which can specialize at higher levels) and fight through hordes of standard and not-so-standard fantasy nasties in a cutesy, SuperDeformed world. The game has an AlwaysOverTheShoulder camera (with the ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' angle more akin to [=MMO=] fighters like ''VideoGame/S4League'' rather than the traditional position in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' -- era {{MMORPG}}s) and plays like a ThirdPersonShooter with a focus on short-to-middle-range combat and melee.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: If you try to pick something up as a ghost, you'll be given an animation of your ghost attempting to pick it up, with his/her arms' going through the object in question. This continues until you move or revive.

* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: Mostly played straight, especially with the four original base classes (Warrior, Archer, Sorceress, Cleric). The Warrior, Cleric, and Assassin are the male melee fighters, and the Archer, Sorceress, and Tinkerer are the female ranged attackers. Their later-earned specialized classes allow this to be averted somewhat. On the flip side, the Kali is a female hybrid of melee and ranged combat, while the other female class, the Lencea, is a spear-wielding melee specialist.

* HeyItsThatVoice: An impressive gathering of well-known anime voice talent was obtained for a lot of the [=NPCs=]. For example, May can't be anyone but [[Manga/TsubasaChronicle Sakura]] unless that VA is a damn good impressionist.



* TheWikiRule: [[http://www.dragonnestwiki.com As with most video games.]] It's pretty small at this point, feel free to help out! Another can be found [[http://dnarmory.com/ here]].

** The game itself spoils [[spoiler:the plot twist that Rose undergoes a FaceHeelTurn]] with one of the openings that coincided with the later-released classes.



* TheMovie: [[http://www.thednmovie.com/ Yep.]] A CGI film based on the game was produced in 2014, and was followed by a sequel a couple of years later. Like the games, the movie is a fantasy adventure film, and uses characters based on the game's NPC[=s=] and the player characters.

* {{Jerkass}}: There are quite a ''lot'' of {{NPC}}s who are rude and unpleasant to the player character, (mainly all of the Sorceresses, except for [[NiceGirl Stella and Tara]]) and most of them [[UngratefulBastard aren't too grateful for you helping them.]]

* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Played straight. Players and monsters alike will continue attacking your character when knocked down. All of the classes even get attacks that are made to perform this. The Warrior performs an elbow drop, the Cleric stomps twice and kicks the target away, the Archer performs a spin kick that is capable of chaining into another kick, the Sorceress simply stomps on the target several times, the Academic [[SolarPoweredMagnifyingGlass whips out an oversized magnifying glass to burn the monster]], the Kali does a backflip kick, and the Assassin repeatedly stabs the enemy on the ground.
