Continuing the tradition of wacky TurnBasedStrategy {{RPG}}s started by ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' and ''PhantomBrave'', [[Creator/NipponIchi Nippon Ichi Software]] released ''Makai Kingdom'' in 2005. It's the story of 'Badass Freakin' [[DimensionLord Overlord]]' Zetta, who [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds accidentally destroys his own Netherworld]] by torching a CosmicKeystone called the Sacred Tome. In order to save himself, he seals himself inside the book before it's completely ruined. Reduced to a sentient tome with no home, no resources and no body, Zetta is forced to enlist the help of his fellow Overlords in a bid to get his netherworld back.

* BonusBoss: Like all Nippon Ichi games by this point, it's Baal (plus [[PhantomBrave Castille]] and the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' crew). Zetta even [[BreakingTheFourthWall Breaks The Fourth Wall]] by calling him out, knowing the trend.

* GenreBusting: The game is a weird mixture of ''Disgaea'' and ''PhantomBrave,'' revolving around summoning allies in the middle of the battlefield but less dependent on objects already on the field. There's nothing exactly like it. (Then again, there was nothing exactly like ''Phantom Brave'' either).

* MarketBasedTitle: The fully English name ''Phantom Kingdom'' got renamed to the partially GratuitousJapanese name ''Makai Kingdom'' when it was ported to Europe and North America. It was likely a marketing move to emphasise the connection to the better known ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' (which it shares more thematically) over PhantomBrave (which it shares more mechanically), though it depends on ViewersAreGeniuses to catch the BilingualBonus.

* ObligatorySwearing: The champion of TheMultiverse by a long shot, even though it holds the same teen rating [[LaPucelle as]] [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} the]] [[PhantomBrave others]], the localization is riffled with: Bitch, Slut, Asshat & etc.

** VERY frequently, characters will insist "go play Phantom Brave" sometimes with "instead if this game!" thrown in.
