Sega's continued to make games in the ''Phantasy Star'' series, but they've largely taken place in entirely new settings with only tenuous connections to the Algol System... well, apart from the fact that Dark Force just can't seem to leave the universe alone. For more information on the sub-series that came after the tetralogy, see ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline'', ''PhantasyStarUniverse'', and ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarZero''.

* LegoGenetics: Numans are humanoids comprised of human, monster, and animal DNA. To top it off, the first Numan may have been created ''accidentally''. (Exactly what happened is unclear.)

* SeriesMascot: Rappies, [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter little fat fluffy yellow birds]]. It wasn't until ''PSIV'' that they started to fill this role; it's more pronounced in the later games. They also appear in ''PSIII'' by the name "Chirper."

* ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway: Inverted. Though the tetralogy's set primarily in the Algol star system, seemingly in its own universe, Algol is actually a [[http://www.phantasy-star.net/art/algol2.jpg real-life star system]], its name is Arabic for "demon star." [[MeaningfulName Now, think back to the plot in]] ''IV'' ....

Creator/{{Sega}}'s answer to the RPG craze of the late 1980s, the ''Phantasy Star'' series was a classic contemporary to Franchise/DragonQuest and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. Having been in the hands of several of Sega's development studios (in chronological order: Sega [=RD4=], Sega [=AM7=] (Overworks/Sega Wow), and Sega [=AM8=] (Creator/SonicTeam)), the franchise has taken several different forms since its inception.

* CompilationRerelease: No shortage of these. The UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn and UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 both offered collections which combined all four original games into one package; the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance offered one which combined the first three.

A number of times, the games of the tetralogy have been ported to newer consoles. At one point, there was even a [[VideoGameRemake Remake]] of the first two games in the tetralogy--''Phantasy Star Generation 1'' and ''Generation 2''--for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2. On top of a more fleshed-out story (''far'' more in ''Generation 1'''s case) and updated graphics, there were a few additional quests and tweaks made to the remakes. [[NoExportForYou Of course, nobody outside Japn got to see these either]]. A similar remake of ''IV'' was planned and a US release bundling the '''III'' was announced, but the remake of ''IV'' disappeared and the US release along with it.
