''Ardy Lightfoot'' is a PlatformGame developed for the SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem, published by ASCII in Japan in 1993 and in the Western world by Creator/TitusSoftware a year later.

A sacred rainbow is shattered into seven {{Mineral MacGuffin}} fragments which, when collected, can grant a person one wish. With one of the fragments in possession, Visconti searches for the remaining six. Our hero [[TheHero Ardy Lightfoot]] and his RidiculouslyCuteCritter Pec find a tablet containing the history of the sacred rainbow. Afterwards, they set out on a quest to retrieve the pieces of the rainbow and must stop Visconti from his tyrannical reign. Though the game has a plot and cutscenes, there's no dialogue.

!!This game provides examples of:

* TheAce: Don Jacoby
* ActionPrologue: The game opens with Ardy and Pec finding the tablet in a cave.
* AutoScrollingLevel: Scene 15, which takes place on the fourth gate of the castle where Ardy has to avoid electrified arrows.
* BackFromTheDead: At the end of the game, [[spoiler:Nina]] is revived thanks to the power of the fragments.
* BigBad: Visconti is the main antagonist of the game.
* BigDamnHeroes: In the final level, [[spoiler:Don Jacoby]] intervenes to stop Visconti's attacks but gets knocked out. He survives, however.
* CartoonCreature: It's a little unclear what species Ardy is exactly, but he looks mostly like a cat.
* DamselInDistress: Nina gets kidnapped by Beecroft on Visconti's orders towards the end of the game.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Gilson the pirate owl, who becomes your ally as soon as you defeat him.
* TheDragon: Beecroft is Visconti's second-in-command.
* EatenAlive: After Catry escapes with the second fragment, she is eaten alive by a giant worm. Ardy and Pec are eaten as well, but they make it out alive.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: A beta version has Catry, the vulpine boss of the fourth level, sporting a ninja costume (and a slightly more pronounced bustline). On the flip side, her final fate in the bowels of the next level's giant worm is as a half-digested corpse (as opposed to a skeleton in the final Japanese version and just lying prone on the ground in the U.S. version).
* FinalBoss: Visconti is the last enemy Ardy has to encounter [[spoiler:after infiltrating the castle]].
* HeelFaceTurn: Once Gilson is defeated, he hands over the fourth fragment and helps Ardy recover the remaining fragments and confront Visconti.
* HeroicSacrifice: Don Jacoby covers for Ardy's escape when the exit is collapsing after the latter recovers the third fragment. Though it turns out to be a DisneyDeath. In Scene 17, [[spoiler:Jacoby intervenes to help Ardy defeat Visconti but at the cost of being knocked down into a wall]].
* InterfaceScrew: The potions in the Mouse Trap level, which reverse left and right-- the only way to remedy them is to get the other potion a screen or so away. Over spikes of doom.
* ISurrenderSuckers: After Ardy beats Catry in Stage 5, she kneels down in defeat, but it turns out to be a trick so that she can escape.
* MineralMacGuffin: The seven fragments of the sacred rainbow.
* MoodWhiplash: For the first few levels of the game, it's fairly cartoony and upbeat. Then suddenly, [[spoiler:you get eaten by a giant worm and your opponent is digested, door-nail dead. ]])
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Pec has a lot of teeth in his mouth.
* NintendoHard: Given that it was made for the Super Nintendo, the game is difficult.
* NoBodyLeftBehind: After [[spoiler:Visconti]] is defeated, his body disappears into nothing.
* NonHumanSidekick: Although Ardy himself isn't human, Pec is a super-deformed animal.
* OhCrap: Ardy when the mining town is set on fire by Grounder.
* {{Pirates}}
* ProjectilePlatforms
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Pec.
* ToBeContinued: The phrase appears at the end of the credits.
* TurnsRed: Every boss turns red when they are close to being defeated, except for Beecroft.
* WeaponizedHeadgear: Grounder uses his spiked hat as a weapon in Scene 3.
* WombLevel: Scene 6, "Eaten!", which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it sounds like]].
