The first game in the ''PhantasyStar'' series was Sega's answer to ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' for their UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem, and with a heavy SciFi twist.

Probably the single greatest legacy left by this entry was the fact that it was one of the very earliest games to feature a lead ''heroine'' (as noted below in the ActionGirl entry--Alis is right up there with [[VideoGame/{{StreetFighter}} Chun Li]] and [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Samus]] ). Furthermore, hers wasn't a quest driven by the need to explore, follow a heroic love interest, or treasure hunting... hers was a quest driven by straight up [[{{Revenge}} vengeance]]. She could still serve to hand out some lessons to RPG heroines today.

* ActionGirl: Seeing as this has been around since the start of both ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' - Alis is one of the earliest female heroines of gaming, alongside [[{{StreetFighter}} Chun Li]] and [[{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]].

Added DiffLines:

* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Laconian equipment, which have the best stats in the game. Although the Laconian Axe is arguably [[AwesomeButImpractical not entirely worth it.]]

* BrokenBridge: The game is full of them, though only the Eppi Forest involves a physical obstacle (the team needs a compass to walk through it). Nearly every other example is an in-game "flag" that must be met in order find the object or pathway. For example, a man in a town tell Alis about where she can find the dungeon key. If the player tries to go there before talking to the man, the chest with the key won't appear.

Not to be confused with ''FantasyZone'', another UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem game.
