Creator/SquareSoft's ''Vagrant Story'' is a genre-defying, stat-based UsefulNotes/PlayStation RPG by videogame auteur YasumiMatsuno. It is available as a downloadable [=PSOne=] Classic on the UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork.

''Vagrant Story'' is the tale of Ashley Riot, a knight who works for the kingdom of Valendia during the [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy dark ages]] of [[IvaliceAlliance Ivalice]]. But Ashley is no ordinary agent: he is one of the Parliament's elite Riskbreakers, a OneManArmy trained for the most dangerous black-ops and infiltration missions.

The story is connected to the IvaliceAlliance, with numerous references the previous Ivalice game ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'', and references back to ''Vagrant Story'' in later installments. It could be considered a standalone NonLinearSequel to ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', and as such, part of the [[RunningGag God-punchingly popular]] ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series. As for its canonicity, though, Matsuno has stated that these references are just meant to be fanservice, and that the game should be treated as a standalone story rather than as part of the Ivalice world.

So, ''don't press start until after you see the first save point. ''
Oh, also. Like many Japanese Playstation games, Circle is "confirm" and X is "cancel".

See also ''[[VideoGame/CrimsonShroud Crimson Shroud]]'', a SpiritualSuccessor that shares some of the same terminology and lore.

* AuthorAppeal: AkihikoYoshida likes bondage gear. And piercings. And amputation, skin removal, torture... and of course, as he has admitted himself, butts.

Added DiffLines:

** The enemies can't move during an attack, and with good timing you can chain attacks indefinitely, only each attack is weaker than the last. With enough patience you can kill almost anything by cherry tapping, including bosses, which is [[DifficultButAwesome Difficult but...]] [[BoringButPractical Boring]].

Added DiffLines:

* NeutralFemale: Callo Merlose is a rare type of subversion. She gets captured early on and spends the rest of the game being dragged around by the bad guys without resisting at all... because it gives her ample time and opportunity to use her psychic powers to get the truth out of Hardin whether he wants to tell it or not. Keep your enemies closer, as the saying goes.
