''Dragon Seeds'' is a 1999 PlayStation game that takes an unusually [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism grim and gritty]] stance to the {{Mons}} genre--presumably to appeal to an [[DarkerAndEdgier older audience.]] The gameplay follows suit, with failed battles often resulting in PermaDeath for the user, and with monsters using a wide array of dangerous-looking weapons to do battle. It also features a very unique mechanic: It can read PlayStation memory cards, and use the data on them to generate monsters both for in-game use and for "memory battles" between players.

* SealedBadassInACan: The original prehistoric beast--never explicitly ''called'' a dragon in the OpeningScroll, but heavily implied.
** Any champions you have stored in the lab could count, as well.

* WretchedHive: Pablo's, where non-sanctioned battles take place, and dragonsages fight for wagers. It's the only place in-game where you can use so-called "wild" dragons generated from memory cards.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Warm City. This being a version of Earth where climate change has brought about a melting of the ice caps, the city map clearly indicates an urban center near the North Pole set amid dense, lush, tropical jungle...

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Taking a willfully aggressive battle stance for the express purpose of either killing as many of your opponent's dragons as possible, or intentionally putting your own dragons in harm's way to have them killed. This is especially true if one sticks solely to the baby dragon stages, in which case it turns into a slaughterhouse for toddlers.

* HopelessBossFight: Your very first fight is scripted, and your dragon is a baby with dismal stats up against a powerful fully-grown dragon. [[ButThouMust You can't refuse the fight]], and there's no script for a fluke win (using a Gameshark to make your dragon invincible can allow you to win, but this leads to a minor graphical glitch and the characters carrying on as if your dragon had died, and you won't have it anymore after the fight).

** Subverted with dragons that manage to reach the "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin immortal]]" life stage - these dragons no longer age, and can keep fighting forever until they're either released by the player or killed in battle. The game never forces you to give them up. The same goes for wild-caught dragons, but these can only be used at Pablo's, and are forbidden from participating in official tournaments.

* {{BFS}}: Considering the size that the dragons are supposed to be, even the smallest dagger fits into this category. However, there are some that are larger than your dragon!
