'''''Alisia Dragoon''''' is a side-scrolling [[PlatformGame platform game]] developed by Creator/GameArts in association with [[Creator/StudioGainax Gainax]]. It was released in 1992 for the SegaGenesis.

It follows the adventures of a barbarian warrior sorceress, Alisia, and her four familiars - Dragon Frye, Thunder Raven, Boomerang Lizard, and Ball O' Fire - as they seek to stop the revival of the demon Baldour, whose followers tortured Alisia's wizard father to death in front of her when she was young. Standing in their way are Baldour's followers and minions, highest among them his aide, Ornah.

Alisia herself uses Thunder Magic, which auto-aims at nearby enemies. The game is a combination of platforming and shooting, and a cautious attitude helps; Alisia's magic needs to be recharged between each shot, as well as the familiars' attacks. Dragon Frye shoots up to three fireballs, Thunder Raven takes the longest to charge up but has quite a payoff with a massive thunderclap that damages everything onscreen, Boomerang Lizard throws up to three homing boomerangs from his back, and Ball O' Fire can be manipulated into ramming enemies to do damage and absorb projectiles.

!!Tropes:
* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The North American boxart shows Alisia as a [[ChainmailBikini chainmailed amazon]] while the Japanese version is more of an {{animesque}} figure.
* AncientAstronauts: Implied with the amount of technology seen in the game. Also, the fact that Baldour might be an alien.
* BigBad: Baldour, the demon of the Silver Star. His followers spend most of the game trying to revive him.
* BlobMonster: Show up in various levels as mooks.
* BloodyMurder: One of Baldour's attacks is to shoot blood-bullets at Alisia from his exposed heart.
* BossOnlyLevel: Stage 8 is not so much a stage as a showdown with Ornah followed by the final battle with Baldour.
* BreathWeapon: Dragon Frye's fire, as well as the fireballs spat by the Stage 4 boss, not to mention the various things such as sparks and ''worms'' that come out of Baldour's mouth.
* BubblegloopSwamp: Stage 2.
* ADogNamedDog: Three of Alisia's four familiars, and then even Dragon Frye skirts it.
* TheDragon: The wizard Ornah, Baldour's aide.
* DualBoss: The boss of Stage 1 is a pair of ninjas.
* EternalEngine: Stage 3 manages to cross this with WombLevel on a giant aircraft, and Stage 6 is in what appear to be the ruins of the demons' spaceship or something.
* ExcusePlot: There are [[AllThereInTheManual some interesting things]] going on with Alisia's vendetta against Ornah and Baldour, but for the most part it's all about the lightning-slinging.
* FairyCompanion: Helpful fairies show up to power up Alisia's Thunder Magic temporarily, make her invincible, or provide platforms now and then.
* FanSequel: ''[[http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/maps-564/return-alisia-dragoon-80729 Return of Alisia Dragoon]]'', as a ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' campaign.
* FloatingContinent: Where the Sky Palace rests.
* GiantFlyer: Stage 4's boss. Thunder Raven is a pretty big flighted bird, as well.
* {{Gorn}}: While [[BloodlessCarnage there isn't any blood]], Alisia's battle with Baldour is surprisingly brutal for a Genesis game. She tears him apart one piece at a time.
* HyperactiveMetabolism: Feeding meat to the familiars heals their injuries.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Has never been re-released and never sold well in any territory.
* KillItWithFire: How Dragon Frye and Ball O' Fire damage enemies.
* LethalLavaLand: The second half of Stage 5.
* LoadBearingBoss: Baldour himself.
* MarathonBoss: The wizard in Stage 7 has a ''lot'' of HP and a pretty narrow window during each round to hit him in.
* OminousFloatingCastle: The Sky Palace.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Baldour is weird. He has white angel wings, no feet, and about half of his internal organs are exposed.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: One of the familiars is Dragon Frye, a fairly standard Western dragon, albeit on the side of good. The Stage 4 boss is a giant wyvern that's missing its skin. There's also the small Eastern dragons that Ornah shoots at Alisia during their fight; they're made of blue fire.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Quite a few of the enemies, and Boomerang Lizard is a small floating lizard who throws boomerangs from his back. Huh?
* PteroSoarer: Some dactyl-like monsters throw rocks at Alisia in Stage 4.
* PunnyName: Dragon Frye = dragonfly, as well as referring to his breath weapon.
* RuinsForRuinsSake: The latter parts of Stage 1.
* RuleOfThree: The familiars each have three levels.
* SchizoTech: The game takes place in a fantasy-esque world which has robots, flying airships, tanks, and so on. Baldour also may or may not be an alien.
* SequentialBoss: Stage 8 - Ornah is directly followed by Baldour.
* ShockAndAwe: Alisia fights with auto-targeting Thunder Magic. Thunder Raven also uses a total-screen-kill thunder attack.
* ShoutOut: The cockpit on Stage 3's airship seems to resemble an [[Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind Ohmu]].
* SummonMagic
* TankGoodness: The Stage 5 boss.
* UndergroundLevel: Stage 5.
* UnderwaterBossBattle: The Stage 2 boss.
* WombLevel: Stage 3's aircraft appears to be modelled on a giant demon fish, and as such is uncomfortably organic at times.
* YouAreTooLate: Alisia is naturally too late to prevent Baldour's resurrection, so she kicks his ass instead.
* ZergRush: The strategy of a lot of small, flying enemies.
