''Magic Sword: Heroic Fantasy'' is a MedievalEuropeanFantasy-themed side-scrolling HackAndSlash PlatformGame developed by {{Capcom}} for [[UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame arcades]] in 1990, and ported for the [[SuperNintendo SNES]] in 1992 as ''Magic Sword'', albeit losing what was probably its main draw: the option for a two-player cooperative game. Outside that, the only other notable element of the game is the use of {{Assist Character}}s: eight different characters (Amazon, [[TheBigGuy Bigman]], [[WhiteMage Priest]], [[{{Necromancer}} Wizard]], [[GentlemanThief Thief]], {{Ninja}}, Knight and [[LizardFolk Lizard Man]]) held captive behind doors found all throughout each stage, which the player can open with keys he gets from treasure chests. Each helper has its own strength and weakness (and some even special abilities), and they gain levels by picking certain items. The player can't control his partner's movements, and they only attack when the main character attacks on his own.

** PoisonMushroom / PowerUpLetDown: BLACK upside-down hearts gave the player points but COST the partner a level! If you want to make the most of THESE, don't touch them, but have a diamond ring ready (you can then get the thief that tries to take it to join you with the ring). Also scissors give you points BUT released that partner from you, leaving you stuck with whomever you got the scissors from.

Outside a few Capcom compilation games, ''Magic Sword'' reappeared in 2008 as a port for mobile phones, and 2010 when it saw a re-release as a bonus bundled with the HD remake of ''FinalFight''.
