''Popful Mail'' is a side-scrolling action-adventure game, originally made by Creator/NihonFalcom (developers of the ''VideoGame/{{Ys}}'' series) for NEC's PC-88 home computer, and then posted to the PC-98, SegaCD and PCEngine CD systems. Creator/WorkingDesigns worked on the localization for the North American Sega CD version (the one that will be covered in this entry). There's also a little-known SuperFamicom version which is essentially a ReformulatedGame due to the remixed area layouts and some plot structure differences, but it still recognizably contains the same overall story as other incarnations.

* DolledUpInstallment: The SegaCD version was going to be one of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', replacing the characters with Sonic characters, and featured Sonic's LongLostSibling, hence the name, ''Sister Sonic.'' However, fans screamed it was ruined before it could get anywhere. The screaming wasn't about ''Sonic'' being ruined; it was about ''Popful Mail'' being ruined.

It stars a charmingly inept elven bounty hunter named Popful Mail (think [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]] with PointyEars), who's spent much of her adventuring life chasing after the notorious criminal Nuts Cracker. She manages to corner him, but is only able to retrieve Nuts' head (as his body runs away from her during their melee), which is practically worthless. Frustrated, she takes her trophy and wanders toward a town, where she learns of an even better bounty - 2,000,000 gold for the capture of an evil old wizard named Muttonhead.

* SexyPackaging: The original PC-98 version's box-art of the game features Mail getting dressed by tanukis, with Mail showing some legs and her leotard's strap falling off.



* ShoutOut: Plenty. With this being a WorkingDesigns adaptation, it's to be expected.

* ChainmailBikini: Popful Mail's outfit. In fact her name is practically an {{Engrish}} translation of the term ("mail" as in a type of armor, and "popful" aptly describes its shape).
