* CthulhuMythos: Pretty blatant. The veiny bird-monsters look like some old art of Byakhees, the second-to-last boss is an obvious Nyarlathotep copy, and "Az Atorse" was likely meant to be Azathoth. And those are just the direct Lovecraft homages, to say nothing of the general enemy design.

'''Magician Lord''' was one of UsefulNotes/NeoGeo's launch titles in 1990 and a KillerApp for its time. A PlatformGame made by Creator/{{ADK}}, it tells the story of Elta, a young wizard entrusted with the task of collecting eight magic books to keep Az Atorse, the god of destruction, sealed. The evil necromancer Gal Agiese however wants the power of Az Atorse for himself and challenges the young wizard to retrieve them. The game is divided into eight stages, each one of them culminating with the battle against a "guardian" (basically, a sub-boss) and then against Gal Agiese himself, every time turned into some grotesque creature that represents Az Atorse's power (or maybe he's just dicking around with Elta, who knows).

Added DiffLines:

* OrbitingParticleShield: The final form of Az Atorse uses this to attack you, combined with ReverseShrapnel. Interestingly enough, you ''need'' to attack and destroy said orbiting objects in order to win.

Added DiffLines:

* IncreasinglyLethalEnemy: Frogs. These hop around and don't even hurt Elta, but let them live for more than a few seconds and the grow into frog warriors, which ''can'' hurt Elta and are harder to kill and avoid.

The defining feature of the game was the ability to collect colored orbs to turn Elta into six possible forms with different abilities, increasing for example his agility, jump or firepower. The title is also remembered for its presentation (thanks to the power of the hardware), with great graphics and an amazing soundtrack, but also for its difficulty (it was produced by {{SNK}} after all) and for many amusing {{Engrish}} quotes. ''Magician Lord'' remained an arcade- and UsefulNotes/NeoGeo-only release until the 2000s, when it was ported to UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}'s VirtualConsole and later to the PlayStation3 store.
