According to the game's {{backstory}}, a greedy king made a DealWithTheDevil, gaining the power to exchange the souls of living things for gold coins. As the king's treasury grew, the population decreased until practically nothing was left alive. That's when Light Gaia (called the Master in North America and Europe, originally God - effectively the Abrahamic God) sends his servant Blazer on a mission to destroy monsters and release the captured souls of a world's inhabitants. Blazer is armed with a sword, and has the ability to speak with any living thing and be understood. He battles the hordes of Deathtoll (also known as Dark Gaia) with the assistance of his Soul helpers.

Added DiffLines:

* OrbitingParticleShield: The Rotator spell turns your spirit companion(s) into this; holding the button down causes it to orbit you faster and drop down small damaging orbs in quick succession. It's very easy to run out of gems if spammed for too long without the Magic Bell.

Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysCheckBehindTheChair: A tougher variant than usual, because Blazer just walks over relevant tiles of the world and automatically picks up things he finds. They're not [[NoticeThis marked with any kind of gleam]], and in a few instances you have to push objects with no indication that it's possible or accomplishing anything.

* DeflectorShields: The Soul of Shield provides you with one against the falling lava rocks at the Durean volcano. But nowhere else.



** Under normal gameplay conditions, the only time you're likely to encounter this is with the Recovery Sword, depending on when you backtrack to kill certain metal monsters with the right sword.



* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Among the many errors in the English localization, one spell is called the Magic "Flair," rather than the Magic Flare.

* AbsurdlyHighLevelCap: Reaching level 50, the maximum level allowed, is completely useless. Your attack and defense stats [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/snes/588673-soul-blazer/faqs/30159 stop increasing]] after level 25, and your hit points (of which you have more than enough at level 30 or so) stop increasing after level 47, meaning the last three levels do ''absolutely nothing''. Have fun spending a day and a half of your life LevelGrinding for 41 million useless experience points.
* AfterBossRecovery: The game gives you full recovery after the boss is dead, to make sure you don't [[KaizoTrap die horribly trying to get to the teleporter out of the dungeon]].

Of course, dedicated death-seekers can still find a way, though unintentional post-boss deaths are also possible. Particularly after the first boss, where a number of currently-unkillable monsters lie between you and the exit.
