The main series games are set in a MedievalEuropeanFantasy world, and most take place on a continent called El Sallia (later games introduce a second continent). El Sallia's history is not so much a series of conflicts as one long knock-down, drag-out war where everyone is fighting everyone else. Constantly. To make matters worse, there's an ongoing feud between the [[GodOfEvil dark god]], Chaos, and the [[HotGoddess goddess of light]], Lushiris. Starting with ''Der Langrisser'', the remake of ''Langrisser 2'', the many of the games feature multiple story paths which allow the hero to ally with each of the factions. ''Der Langrisser'' was especially good at making all the different groups seem sympathetic. ''Langrisser 3'' adds RelationshipValues and {{Romance Sidequest}}s to the mix as well, which reappear in all the games to follow.

''Langrisser'' is a series of TurnBasedStrategy games by Creator/{{NCS}} that is mostly [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]. The main series of ''Langrisser'' games is made up of five installments, many of which have been ported and [[UpdatedRerelease updated]] a bewildering number of times. From a gameplay perspective, ''Langrisser'' is similar to games like ''FireEmblem'', but what sets ''Langrisser'' apart is its sense of scale. In a typical TurnBasedStrategy game, the player commands around twelve fighters per battle, while in ''Langrisser'', there are hundreds of soldiers on the player's side alone, organized into battalions which are led by [[HeroUnit more powerful commanders]]. While ordinary soldiers fight in groups, commanders can [[{{Badass}} single-handedly mow down scores of enemies]] in a single turn.

* ''Langrisser Millennium'' - SegaDreamcast (1999)
* ''Langrisser Millennium WS: The Last Century'' - Bandai {{Wonderswan}} (2000)

The development team behind the earlier installments split from NCS in 1996 to form Career Soft. Career Soft remained involved with subsequent installments until 1998, when they began to develop the ''VideoGame/{{Growlanser}}'' series for Creator/{{Atlus}}. As the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin subtitle of]] ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Langrisser V]]'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin suggests]], the series concluded right around the time Sega abandoned the SegaSaturn. NCS went on to produce the ''Millennium'' [[GaidenGame spinoff]] series without the input of the main series development team.

* [[spoiler: BittersweetEnding: The Light Path almost isn't this, but then the FridgeHorror regarding the Demon Tribe's fate sets in. The Independent Path is more straightforward: it ends with Elwin having unified El Sallia under his banner, saved the Demon Tribe from eons of persecution, freed the world from the manipulations of Lushiris and Chaos, and finally brought about an era of peace. However, he's had to kill many good people to do it and lost the woman he loves because he killed the goddess she worships. The ending is probably the happiest on the global scale, but it's tragic on a personal level for Elwin and those he cares about.]]
