''Summon Night'' is a series of StrategyRPG games developed by [[Creator/FlightPlan Flight-Plan]]. It is their second such series after VideoGame/BlackMatrix and is notably much LighterAndSofter along with being better known. The series also contains three out of the four[[note]](PoisonPink[=/=]EternalPoison being the last one)[[/note]] Flight-Plan games to get a North American release, although all three are action-RPG spin-offs rather than from the main series. The games apply some DatingSim elements to them as well with multiple endings for virtually all the characters that join you whether you play as a boy or a girl. The series celebrated its [[VideoGameLongRunners 10th anniversary]] on January 6th, 2010 and has a [[http://summonnight.net/10thanniversary/index.html commemoration website]]. Unfortunately, the series is now effectively dead with the [[http://www.siliconera.com/2010/08/04/summon-night-developers-flight-plan-close-shop/ closing of its developer in August of 2010]]... [[http://www.siliconera.com/2012/07/18/summon-night-5-announced-for-psp-summon-nights-1-4-coming-too/ until a new game finally got announced in July of 2012 for the PSP]], alongside ports of all the previous main series titles.

* AlmightyMom - Amariss.

to:

* AlmightyMom - Amariss.Amariss, the late Shintetsu's wife and mother of the first game's protagonist. Despite appearing like an ordinary house wife, she has all the connections and knows all the tidbits required to help out from the sidelines.



* ApologisesALot: Angel!Dinah in the second game, to make up for Devil!Dinah's rather rude behaviour.



* DefrostingIceQueen: Sanary.

to:

* DefrostingIceQueen: Sanary.Sanary in the first game, changing into a more typical {{Tsundere}}. Devil!Dinah in the second game does the same; Angel!Dinah on the other hand is as sweet as they come and ApologisesALot.



* FishingMinigame: The second game has one. Rather annoyingly, it's required to be played ''a lot'' to advance the story.



* FrictionlessIce

to:

* FrictionlessIceFrictionlessIce: During the glacier quest, the player comes across this and naturally has to figure out a way to get across it.



** Tatiana is this in the 2nd game

to:

** Tatiana is this in the 2nd gamegame.



* GirlsLove

to:

* GirlsLoveGirlsLove: If your player character is female, expect to get hit on a lot by girls, including your (female) Guardian.



* RandomEncounters

to:

* RandomEncountersRandomEncounters: No matter where you go, you will be ''swarmed'' by random enemies. At least there is an item to reduce the rate. On the other hand, there's also one that causes RandomEncounters ''even more often.''



* RepetitiveName: Nina Nina. The PC mocks this by introducing them self as <charname> <charname> and <gbname> <gbname>, to which Nina calls them out on.
* SavePoint

to:

* RepetitiveName: Nina Nina. The PC mocks this by introducing them self as <charname> <charname> "maincharactername maincharactername" and <gbname> <gbname>, "guardianname guardianname", to which Nina calls them out on.
* SavePointSavePoint: There are a bunch of cylindrical monuments with swords in them, which allow saving. One of those is typically in your workshop(s).



** A villager in the item shop in Swordcraft Story 2 does this as well.

to:

** A villager in the item shop in Swordcraft Story 2 does this as well. As well as Lynn... sometimes, but especially when she wants something.



** Talking to your Guardian Beast in the second game the evening after first visiting the beach region, where a stray summon blocked you from going further unless you ask "like a sexy woman would ask her man" (don't ask, that stray is just a pervert). You can try it yourself or have your guardian beast do it. Yet the conversation at the end of the day will insist that the player tried, no matter what actually happened.



** Goura in the second game.

* {{Tsundere}}: Varil, Sanary.
** Loki, Dinah, and all have shades of it...

to:

* {{Tsundere}}: Varil, Sanary.
Varil (a male example) and Sanary in the first game.
** Loki, Dinah, Devil!Dinah, and all have shades of it...

* GoGoEnslavement: Sanary is victim of this at one point. Creepily, it becomes a [[RunningGag running gag]].

to:

* GoGoEnslavement: Sanary is victim of this at one point. Creepily, it becomes point, being dressed up as a [[RunningGag running gag]].{{Meido}}. You can watch her serving some enemy soldiers (and secretly enjoying herself since the outfit is cute); and if you keep on observing rather than fighting the enemies right away, the post-battle banter will be hilarious.

* NoExportForYou: Not surprising given Flight-Plan's lack of distribution capabilities. SCEA following Bernard "Bernie" Stolar's policy of disparaging 2D games and [=RPGs=] in the PS1 era likely didn't help.
** Surprisingly averted in the case of ''Summon Night 5'', thanks to Gaijinworks.
