Released by Squaresoft in 1996, ''Rudra no Hihou'' (''Treasure of the Rudra'') is one of the last [=RPG=]s written for the SNES. It's often mentioned in connection with two other Japan-only SquareSoft games of the era: ''VideoGame/BahamutLagoon'', and the at times very similar ''VideoGame/LiveALive''. The game's main drawing point is its magic system: the player can literally write their own spells, by combining syllables with prefixes and suffixes or by plain trial and error. ''Rudra no Hihou'' is very similar to the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series in terms of atmosphere, game play and complexity.

Every 4000 years, the earth's dominant race (first danans, then mermaids, giants, reptilians, and currently humans) is mostly destroyed by a creature known as the Rudra, to make way for the next species. At the start of ''Rudra no Hihou'', humanity has only 16 days left, and the Rudra is about to be born. Four [[LampshadedTrope suspiciously stereotypical]] heroes (a fighter, a wizard, a priestess and a thief) are chosen by fate to save the earth... and all get a PowerCrystal violently lodged into their heads. Each with their own friends and their own separate goals, they set out to save their planet and to discover who is behind the oncoming destruction, lampshading and subverting an impressive number of tropes along the way.

Despite containing many of the standard references to ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' (there's a Cid with an airship, an Aegis shield, four magical stones, etc.) the game has a surprisingly unique and intricate storyline, and no two playthroughs are the same. It's very well-written, features ''great'' music, and takes about as long to finish as a standard ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. If you like non-standard Squaresoft games such as ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' and ''VagrantStory'', chances are you'll love ''Rudra no Hihou''.
