An ambitious game by [[Creator/SquareEnix Square]], featuring multiple story lines set in seven time periods ("chapters"), which can be played in any order before culminating in one hell of a WhamEpisode. These story lines each provide a different setting and genre. Although the storylines are mostly standalone at first, they eventually combine into a single plotline that ''thrives'' on well-executed PlayerPunch moments.

An ambitious ''Live A Live'' is a role playing game by [[Creator/SquareEnix Square]], featuring multiple story lines set in seven time periods ("chapters"), which can be played in any order before culminating in one hell of a WhamEpisode.periods. These story lines each provide a different setting and genre. Although the storylines are mostly standalone at first, they eventually combine into a single plotline that ''thrives'' on well-executed PlayerPunch moments.



''Live A Live'' also deviates somewhat from the usual Squaresoft games when it comes to the battle system, being somewhere between standard TurnBasedCombat and a Tactics-style system. Although the battle system stays the same throughout the game, each chapter has its own distinct atmosphere and art style. They are, in chronological order:

* The prehistoric slapstick comedy romance chapter, starring Pogo the green-haired caveman and his monkey friend,
* The classical Chinese kung fu nature chapter, starring an old, dying Xin Shan Quan master and his potential successors Li, Yuan, and Sammo,
* The Japanese Bakumatsu StealthBasedMission political revolution [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot ghost robot]] maze chapter, starring the ninja Oboro and a mysterious prisoner,
* The SpaghettiWestern time trial puzzle chapter, starring [[ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid The Sundown Kid]], a gunslinger with a mysterious past, and Mad Dog, a young bounty hunter.

* The Medieval Era traditional fantasy RPG chapter, [[WhamEpisode where everything]] [[DownerEnding goes to hell]], starring the knight Oersted.

Complete all the chapters, and the final part of the story unlocks, tying the plot together and culminating in a quest to save all of existence.

(If you're considering playing the game for the first time, it is highly recommend you start with the robot sci-fi chapter. It's the only one that isn't either full of GuideDangIt moments or a complete {{Mindscrew}}, and contains a very nice tutorial mini-game. Both the kung fu chapter and the mecha chapter are also nice to begin with. After that, it may get a little bit [[NintendoHard difficult at times]].)

* GuideDangIt: Oboro's chapter. The scenario itself can be easily done, but if one wants to get certain [[InfinityMinusOneSword weapons]], it's pretty much impossible to do so without a guide. To get the weapons, the player must either complete the chapter with 0 kills intotal or by getting the maximum of 100 kills. Difficult enough to do either, but for 100 kills, you need to keep certain people ''alive'' until a specific point in the chapter, may not kill any women until late in the chapter for a good item and need to backtrack and take detours to get them all. Oh, ''and'' you need to have a specific character in your party, if you want to get the weapon for completing the chapter with 0 kills. And getting that character to join your party is a GuideDangIt moment in itself.

** In Masaru's chapter there is a third move you can learn from Jackie Iaukea, but you have to be in a very specific location in relation to him for him to use it.

* PyrrhicVictory: Odio. [[spoiler: When he changes history by killing off the seven protagonists so that he is the winner, he is somewhat pleased with his victory... but becomes depressed. Why? Because he is completely alone with no friends or enemies to interact with and will never know the satisfaction of the pain and and despair of those he had destroyed. What's worse is that he had no one else to witness his accomplishment which completely defeats the efforts he made in proving his point.]]

** [[spoiler:The real demon king -- that is, the one Hash killed previously -- never came back from the dead at all; he was never present at any point in the chapter. It was all a ploy by Straybow, at least up until the point where Oersted takes up the mantle himself. Hash's comment is a hint that Straybow's "Demon King" was an illusion without the Demon King's real strength.]]
