''{{Drakan}}'' is a series of ActionAdventure games developed by Surreal Software before they brought us ''TheSuffering''. It consists of two titles to date, ''Drakan: Order of the Flame'' and ''Drakan: The Ancients' Gates'', but appears to be an OrphanedSeries by now. The first game was released for PC in 1999, and the second, for PS2 in 2002.

* ShoutOut: There's a pure black sword called Mournbringer in the first game, which howls with distant screams of many, and it gives you health back every time you hurt something with it. [[TheElricSaga Stormbringer + Mournblade = Mournbringer?]] Man, I love that weapon. It also exists in ''The Ancients' Gates'' [[spoiler:though if you miss picking up even one of the Swords of the Order of the Flame, Brekk will not have it in stock]]. There's also [[AnneRice Lestat's Blade]] if you know where to look.

* SharedLifeMeter: The PlayerCharacter Rynn and her Bound dragon Arokh share a single life meter, though this seems to only work one way (if Arokh dies, so does Rynn, but if Rynn dies, Arokh seems to survive). This is justified in-story by the nature of their Bond, which magically links the lives of the dragon and his rider, and [[spoiler:Arokh has already survived the death of his previous rider in the backstory]].

* MindRape: This is what happened to the women in the [[spoiler:Bridal Hall in Stratos.]] They are described by the guard outside to be under a spell that 'sedates the mind and destroys the will.' The whole place is under an enchantment that causes those to enter to become this way, and the only way to bypass it is through the use of a special potion. Sure, you can go in there without it, but it is very [[NightmareFuel ill-advised]].

* BridgeLogic: In Arokh's "tomb".
** Later in the Spider-infested mines as well.
* CantLiveWithoutYou: Once the Bond is established, if the dragon dies so does the rider, but not vice-versa. In fact, Arokh has already outlived at least one rider (Heron).
** To clarify, if the rider dies, the dragon turns to stone (Arokh escaped that fate with Heron's death because the latter was in a dimensional rift when he died, but then later Arokh went to stone-sleep voluntarily after Heron's burial), whereas if the dragon dies, the rider becomes a Soul Shadow who [[AFateWorseThanDeath wanders for eternity]]. Both cases can be remedied by finding the dragon's [[MacGuffin Soul Crystal]].
*** The second game seems to show this as "if one dies, so does the other".

* DeadpanSnarker: Both Rynn and Arokh takes turns at this, although Arokh is probably more so.

* OnlyAFleshWound: Some enemies... really take their time to die.
** Though this does not stop you from, say, hacking an arm off an enemy in the first game, which causes them to bleed to death even if you do nothing else.

* BreathWeapon: Arokh starts off with the classic fire breathing and goes on to acquire ice breathing, acid breathing, lightning breathing, and so on, and so on.
** Incidentally. The strongest breath weapon in the first game? Short-range fire, alternate mode for the very first attack. It can literally fry any dragon boss without needing recharge. But be prepared to get some hits. Notable for defeating the ice dragon within 5 seconds of the start of the boss battle.
