The protagonist is Dart, a world traveler on a fruitless search for "[[HiddenVillain The Black Monster]]", the being responsible for killing his parents. Upon returning to his adopted home of Seles, he finds that things haven't changed much: now it's the [[TheEmpire jackbooted thugs]] from Sandora who are wrecking up the place. Sandora also has a dragon called Feyrbrand at its disposal, and it nearly makes hamburger of Dart before he's rescued by an enigmatic swordswoman named Rose. With his childhood friend thrown into a gulag, it's up to Dart to break her out, all the while looking for clues to the Black Monster's whereabouts. His dogged companion is Rose, who hints at Dart's heritage as a Dragoon, warriors who can tame the dragons now being used as weapons. A mere human can't hope to last against a dragon; but a Dragoon can.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Part of the reason [[spoiler:Claire ran away from her father, Haschel. She never wanted to learn martial arts or take over the Rouge School, she just wanted to be a normal girl who had normal friends and eventually find someone to marry, but Haschel forced her to learn since she was his own heir.]]

Despite a lukewarm critical reception, the game sold well and went on to become a CultClassic, with a {{troperiffic}} plot that manages to shift smoothly between humor, [[NarmCharm narm]], and some genuinely moving moments. Think ''LiveAction/PowerRangers'' meets ''LiveAction/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and you're in the right ball park.

* GameBreakingBug: The game has become known for inexplicably hanging at certain points when played on anything but an ''actual'' PS1. Some of this is semi-explainable; for example, if you destroy multiple parts of a boss at once when said boss has a special move that activates when a part is damaged, the game can hang because the emulator can't resolve the conflict.

* InterfaceSpoiler / SpoiledByTheFormat: Clearly, it's inherently obvious that the game doesn't end with the DiscOneFinalBoss. Additionally, one can guess that a character will become a Dragoon simply because of the colour they wear.
