''Fantasy Zone'' is a horizontally-scrolling ShootEmUp made by {{Sega}}. You control a ship called Opa-Opa, and have to bomb a set number of targets in each stage. Once these are destroyed, a boss will appear, which will have to be defeated to move on to the next stage.

* ContinuingIsPainful: When you die, you lose all of your upgrades, even those you had in reserve. On some bosses, you have pretty much no hope of winning if you lose to them once. Time to start over!
** Though in ''Fantasy Zone II DX'', you're sent to a shop that sells only engines if you die to a boss so you can repurchase that extra speed you lost. You're still stuck with the Twin Shot and Single Bomb weapons and no special weapons though.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: The only way to reach the [[GoldenEnding Bright Ending]] is to endure your way through all the Dark Side levels and still have enough money saved to be able to buy the highly expensive [[EleventhHourSuperpower Drop]] [[SwissArmyTears Tears]] weapon and land it on the FinalBoss, after which [[spoiler:Opa-Opa finally rids himself of all the evil Nenon emotions that have been building up since the first game]]

** [[DownerEnding Bad ending]]: Go through more Bright stages than Dark stages. [[spoiler:Opa-Opa's dark side takes over and makes him evil. He spreads chaos throughout the Fantasy Zone, destroying many of his former allies, leading to Space Harrier to try and stop him, though it's implied it's already too late.]] Doubles as a NonStandardGameOver.
** Good ending: Go through more Dark stages than Bright stages. [[spoiler:Opa-Opa never finds out about the truth, but peace is nonetheless restored to the Fantasy Zone.]]
** GoldenEnding: Same as above, but [[spoiler:use the Drop Tear on the FinalBoss]]. [[spoiler:Peace is restored and Opa-Opa finds out about the truth; shedding TearsOfJoy, he vows to never let war occur again.]]

* KarmaMeter: The touch screen in ''3D Fantasy Zone II W'' shows Opa-Opa's status, indicating which ending you'll get. He starts neutral, gets angry if you're on your way to the bad ending, and becomes happy if you're on your way to the good ending.



* SpreadShot: Each game has a variant of it. The original had the 7-Way Shot, one of the most useful in the game. Some of the sequels had the 3-way Shot instead.

* NintendoHard: Despite the cute look, the games are extremely unforgiving. There's no continues and extra lives cost money that's needed for weapons [[spoiler: and the good ending in II DX]], which gets frustrating as [[ContinuingIsPainful said weapons go away when dead]]. The controls also take some getting used to.
