In both of its incarnations, Yggdra Unison is a non-canonical AlternateUniverse retelling of ''Yggdra Union'' similar to such games as ''Fate/unlimited codes''--it retells the story of the war from a number of possible perspectives, asking "What if so-and-so were the main character?" and introducing many changes to the storyline along the way. For the most part, it also happens to run on RuleOfFunny. There are twelve playable characters--[[BadassPrincess Yggdra]], [[LovableRogue Milanor]], [[AllLovingHero Gulcasa]], [[TechnicalPacifist Emelone]], [[TallDarkAndSnarky Roswell]], [[CuteWitch Rosary]], [[BoisterousBruiser Ortega]], [[FauxAffablyEvil Dort]], [[DirtyCoward Juvelon]], [[KnightInShiningArmor Gordon]], [[CloudCuckoolander Pamela]], and [[FallenAngel Nessiah]].

Happily for fans the world over, Sting announced that a Nintendo DS remake of the game (entitled ''YggdraUnison: Holy Sword Stories'') would be released in December of 2009, featuring a new story mode and various unlockable features. The remake no longer features any cooperative or competitive multiplayer modes, though.

The year was 2007, and with many of their other projects winding down, StingEntertainment needed something to do. The PSP version of ''[[VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand Riviera]]'' had been released, and the PSP version of ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'' wasn't due out for some time yet. Someone or other had the brilliant idea of doing a different kind of promotion for ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion''--and thus the first incarnation of YggdraUnison was born.

Originally a real-time tactical MMO playable on the cellphone, ''YggdraUnison: Beat Out Our Obstacle'' allowed players to take control of any army from ''YggdraUnion'' and engage in competitive battles with opponents all over Japan. Because it was made for the cellphone specifically, [[NoExportForYou the game never left Japan]].

* UnholyHolySword: Since it was a big part of the plot in ''YggdraUnion'', this is both a no-brainer and not taken anywhere near as seriously. Having Nessiah show up and ask Yggdra to give it back (when she's never had reason to question her country's JusticeWillPrevail ideology) can actually be a ''large'' source of HilarityEnsues.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: There are at least ''some'' people who would be happy to help him if he just bothered to ''explain himself,'' but he chooses to laugh at the rest of the world rather than try. ([[JustifiedTrope Justified]] given his background; the way he's been treated, the possibility probably wouldn't occur to him at all.) Also a case of YouDidntAsk.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: It's possible to restart any stage at any given time, and if you get a game over, you can do an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Easy Retry]], much like all the other VideoGame/DeptHeaven games thus far. Also, once you manage to unlock Nessiah, he stays awake for all subsequent playthroughs, saving you the trouble of having to search the world for his event trigger again.

* {{Retcon}}: The Imperial Army's likes and dislikes were changed in ''BlazeUnion''; many of the characters are willing to eat things in ''Blaze'' that they wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole in ''Unison'' (for instance, cheese for Emilia, [[CarnivoreConfusion dragon meat]] for Gulcasa, just about everything for Nessiah). This is also the game that first changed Nessiah's elemental affinity to "dark".

** The Gulcasa/Nessiah undertones are pretty pervasive if you look; turns out [[BlazeUnion there's a reason for that]].

In both of its incarnations, YggdraUnison is a non-canonical AlternateUniverse retelling of ''YggdraUnion'' similar to such games as ''Fate/unlimited codes''--it retells the story of the war from a number of possible perspectives, asking "What if so-and-so were the main character?" and introducing many changes to the storyline along the way. For the most part, it also happens to run on RuleOfFunny. There are twelve playable characters--[[BadassPrincess Yggdra]], [[LovableRogue Milanor]], [[TheMessiah Gulcasa]], [[TechnicalPacifist Emelone]], [[TallDarkAndSnarky Roswell]], [[CuteWitch Rosary]], [[BoisterousBruiser Ortega]], [[FauxAffablyEvil Dort]], [[DirtyCoward Juvelon]], [[KnightInShiningArmor Gordon]], [[CloudCuckoolander Pamela]], and [[FallenAngel Nessiah]].

* {{Irony}}: In the other episode II games, Genocide draws power from Gulcasa's teammates to add to his own. In this game, it actually powers him down slightly in order to spread his strength amongst his allies. Yes, it went from running on ThePowerOfFriendship in a [[WebComic/EightBitTheater Black Mage sense of the phrase]] to a weaponization of the concept of TheParagon. This is not [[TheMessiah symbolic of anything]] ''[[BlatantLies at all]].''

* {{Troll}}: Nessiah has Duel Events with nearly every character, and these Duel Events consist of him cheerfully lambasting a good 90% of them. The only exceptions are [[ShipTease Gulcasa]], Pamela, Yggdra ("May I have my sword back?" ''"what"'' "F-fine, then I'll just have to ''take'' it back!"), and [[BerserkButton anyone from Lombardia]].
