Brave Frontier is an online RPG develpoed by Gumi Asia where you can collect units, fuse them with others and evolve into better ones.

You play as a summoner chosen by the Lucius' Gate to defeat the fallen creator, Maxwell. Having up to five units (with one more from your friend), you battle against a series of monsters as you travel through each world. You slowly gather monsters and resources such as Zel and Karma to slowly build your own army of mighty summons.

It is currently available on mobile built on Android and iOs.

!!Tropes
* AprilFoolsDay: In 2014, there was a special dungeon that opened up that involved Burny and Friends (who are pretty much the weakest enemies in the game) taking over the Adventurer's Prairie. If you completed said dungeon for the first time, you would get a special Sphere. But the dungeon was anything but easy, seeing as how Burny and friends kept attacking you multiple times and pretty much had the health of a powerful boss.
* AreaOfEffect: Although most units have Brave Burst affecting the entire side, most bosses are able to damage their entire opponents at once. This also especially applies to some of them whole Brave Burst involves healing or supporting their team instead.
* AscendedMeme: Previously, Burny was blamed for the servers' overload. And now, we have a special dungeon, dedicated to it and its friends.
* {{Bishonen}}: Most male human characters fall into this trope.
** Surprisingly enough, the commercials from the Japanese version seems to deliberately avoid this trope. Behold, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXtsA_xTjNI Vargas]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vLO6bYPnPM Mega]].
* BonusDungeon: There are two, currently. Each are unlocked by finishing their main area. Technically, the entirety of Cordelica ''was'' this, but now you need to finish it in order to unlock Lizeria.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: In the form of Gems, which you buy with real money, and are used for such things as recharging your gameplay energy, acquiring rare summons and instantly reviving all your fallen summons in the middle of battle. Needless to say, players who can afford to pay for gems enjoy a great advantage over those who can't. It ''is'' possible to acquire gems for free in-game, but these come very few and far between.
* ChainmailBikini: Angel and Archangel.
* ClassChangeLevelReset: All units that can evolve, but played literally with the human characters.
%% * CompetitiveBalance: Each units, on an individual basis, has a different Type affecting it stats growth, eventually resulting in them being like the following equivalents:
%% ** JackOfAllStats: Lord
%% ** GlassCannon: Breaker
%% ** StoneWall: Guardian
%% ** MightyGlacier: Anima
%% ** SquishyWizard: Oracle
* ColorCodedElements: For starters, all units have their icons' borders colored accordingly. Otherwise, some of them have matching coloured clothes to their respective elements, if it's not themselves being colored.
** FireIsRed
** WaterIsBlue
** YellowLightningBlueLightning: Mainly yellow for the lightning element, but several lightning element units have both yellow and blue in their designs.
** GreenThumb: The Earth element is colored green. Justified as the element is plant based in nature, rather than being DishingOutDirt.
** PurpleIsTheNewBlack: To represent darkness.
* {{Crossover}}:
** The Battle Maidens are all borrowed directly from ''Puzzle Trooper'', another mobile game developed by Gumi Inc. They're given different names, but otherwise remain identical their ''Puzzle Trooper'' counterparts.
** Currently has two in the Japanese version, the first with [[{{VideoGame/SaGa}} Emperor's SaGa]] (which is a case of NoExportForYou), and the second one with {{VideoGame/Deemo}}.
* CoolOldGuy: Most prominent with Lorand, Grahden and later, Dalvanshel. All of them are very cool and hit ''hard''.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Lilin and Succubus.
* DamageIncreasingDebuff: The status named Weakened.
* ElementalHair: Generally downplayed for most human units, where their hair color matches their respective elements.
* ElementalPowers: Each units can have one of the following six elements:
** PlayingWithFire
** MakingASplash
*** AnIcePerson: Most Water Elemental Units have ice motifs on them, be it in their title, part of their decoration or part of their attack animation.
** ShockAndAwe
** GreenThumb: The Earth Element is actually this. Its Japanese name is translated to "Wood".
*** BlowYouAway: Fore Earth units not having an attacking Brave Burst, its enemy counterparts while have Whirlwind is its Brave Burst instead.
*** DishingOutDirt: The impression the English Translation gives.
** LightEmUp
** CastingAShadow
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: Where Fire beats Earth, Earth beats Thunder, Thunder beats Water and Water beats Fire.
* EvolutionaryLevels: Most units are able to evolve at least once. It cost Zel and certain other units to do that, though.
* FourElementEnsemble: Fire, Water, Earth and Thunder forms a variant of this ensemble, where they are related through an [[ElementalRockPaperScissors elemental wheel]].
* FourIsDeath: Where the number 4 refers to the number of Fallen Gods who would destroy the entire Grand Gaia.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Pikeman Lance's Acquired Quote:
-->'''Pikeman Lance:''' [[FreudWasRight Do you like my pike? Alright, I'll let you see it, but just this once...]]
* GradualRegeneration: Some unit's Brave Burst allows regeneration for HP. Without them, your unit may alternatively regenerate the HP as well as their BB themselves through Heart and Battle Crystals respectively. They are produced from occasionally attacking enemies.
* HeroesPreferSwords
** Four of The Six Heroes wield swords as their WeaponsOfChoice, and one of the two who didn't use a sword ended up with a forked lance that looks more like a sword.
** Only two of out of the six Elemental Heroes use one each, though another is equipped with a DoubleWeapon.
** Half of the members of Saviors of Palmyna also use swords.
** Zigzagged among the Sybil Sisters, where each sides have one of the members using swords in battle. However, both sides were originally saving humans before one of them doing a FaceHeelTurn.
* TheJuggernaut: One of the Summoner Rank in the Arena is named after this, after winning and gaining that much Battle Points.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* LuckBasedMission: Since whether or not a defeated enemy gets added to your collection is based entirely on chance, any venture in which your goal is to acquire a specific unit inevitably becomes this. It gets especially grating in cases where getting the monster you're looking for to even show up at all is in ''itself'' a Luck-Based Mission, since the order of enemy formations that appear in the various dungeons is also completely random. Basically, you'll get what you want when you want it if the game happens to be in a good mood.
* {{Mons}}: They are in a form of summons. They may be either collected in a form of defeated enemies or obtained through Honor Summon and are usually used in battles, if not as a fusing or evolving ingredient.
* MutualDisadvantage: Between Light and Dark elements, they are the weakness examples, as their attack deal more damage to each other.
* NoMouth: Most of the human(oid) character designs lack a mouth.
* OutsideContextVillain: [[spoiler: The final bosses of each world (as well as a former special event boss) are not obtainable units. You wouldn't even acquire the few exceptions as themselves, only in a form of another kind of unit.]]
* RuleOfThree: This is how long a StatusBuff or other positive status usually lasts.
* SpecialAttack: In a form of Brave Burst.
* StockMonsters: With more than 300 units, expect all of them to fit into one of its category, in one way or another. Look up in the Summon Units section in the character page for individual examples.
* SummonMagic: What you're really doing in this game.
* TechnicolorToxin: Usually, going with the eastern version, the Poison status is purple in colour, but its symbol shows green bubbles on purple background.
* TurnsRed: Some bosses have their attack raised when their HP is half or less.
* UselessUsefulSpell: Generally, Sickness does not really affect in-game enemies since they don't receive Battle or Heart Crystals when attacking.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Most of the human-based units have their hair of bright colours, usually matching their elements. For example, Selena, a water unit, has blue hair.
