This is ''Lufia & the Fortress of Doom'' or ''Estopolis Denki'' for the SNES. Published by Creator/{{Taito}} before it closed its doors in America and developed by Neverland, Lufia is a rather simple turn-based JRPG. The first in the {{Franchise/Lufia}} series it would introduce the series setting, the Sinistrals, and the Dual Blade. Gameplay wise it was your typical JRPG. You had a party of four characters with preset roles. Some such as Lufia could use magic while others bashed baddies on the head with large and deadly weapons like swords and axes.

* DubNameChange: In the original Japanese version, [[http://smg.photobucket.com/user/ESTFAN/media/Lufia/lufiachar1.png.html Jerin's name was "Jurina", Aguro was "Aguros"]] and [[http://smg.photobucket.com/user/ESTFAN/media/Lufia/lufiachar2.png.html Selan was "Selana"]].

This was presumably because of the 5-character limit for character names, which is much less restrictive in Japanese than in English.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: It was either this or BlindIdiotTranslation, but when the people of Belgen admit to you that they offered Jerin to the monsters in order to stop them from attacking the village, they say they "ransomed" her, when what they actually mean is "sacrificed".



* TurnBasedCombat: Actually [[Averted|Trope]], although the manual [[GuideDangIt never explains this at any stage]], the game actually runs on a CombatantCooldownSystem, where a more complicated action (like casting a multi-target nuke spell) will take much longer to execute than a simpler one (like hitting your opponent in the face). Later games dropped this system in favour of traditional TurnBasedCombat.

Added DiffLines:

* CombatantCooldownSystem: AGI determines how often a character can act, the complexity of their action determines how long it takes them to carry out a command.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tsundere}}: Lufia is a Type B; obviously deeply in love with the Hero, but often gets pissed off at him and is [[GreenEyedMonster strongly opposed to Jerin joining the party]].

** It's even more obvious in the Japanese version where [[spoiler: Guard Daos is using moves from all of the Sinistrals against you.]]

* GenderEqualEnsemble: The party consists of two males (Hero and Aguro) and two females (Lufia and Jerin). [[spoiler:Although Lufia left your party right before encounter at DDoom Island, she rejoined in the final boss battle.]]
