An action/adventure game for the Sega Genesis, also known as ''Soleil'' in PAL regions and ''Ragnacenty'' in Japan. It was published by Creator/{{Atlus}}.

Gameplay and visuals are similar to those in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'' or the ''VideoGame/SoulBlazer'' series, with a few exceptions. Instead of collecting items, you have animals join your party. Two animals may be equipped at a time. Certain animals may be equipped with certain other animals to produce a unique or upgraded effect.

The game starts with your character on the birthday where he receives his first sword and becomes a man. He inherits the old sword of his father, a great swordfighter and hero. After learning to throw it, you venture out into the world to fight monsters and have a good ol' time. Except that not all is as it seems.

Essentially a large and fairly well done parable for environmentalist and expansionist issues as well as the morality of killing those who are different and strange.

!!''Crusader of Centy'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* AmplifierArtifact - The Moa Bird
* AncestralWeapon: Your father's rusty sword.
* AndroclesLion - Many of your recruited animals must be saved first.
* AnimalTalk - To the point that when you first receive the ability, you can no longer speak to humans. You get better though.
* AntiVillain: Monsters turn out to be this. When the player goes back to the beginning of time, he discovers that they're trapped by an energy being and must defeat it to get them back to their own world.
* [[BornInTheWrongCentury Born In The Wrong Timeline]]- The imprisoned adventurer in the epilogue.
* BrokenAesop: After spending the entire game [[{{Anvilicious}} beating it into the players head]] that the monsters are people too, deserve equal rights, and actually could coexist with Humans if the Humans got rid of their racism, [[spoiler:the ending does a complete 180 and has the hero banish all the monsters to the "underworld" where they originated from, because apparently monsters ''aren't'' people after all and could never coexist with Humans...]]
** It's not as bad in the European translation. The monsters are trapped in the human world and want to get back to the underworld.
* BribingYourWayToVictory: Charlie the cheetah can be bribed to run slower in the cart race with him.
* TheCameo - SonicTheHedgehog
* CanineCompanion: The first companion you obtain is your dog.
* CirclingBirdies - The Big Bad Wolf's attack consists of hitting himself on the head then using the stars to damage you.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: A stage is set around and inside of an active, near erupting volcano. Falling into the lava only removes 1 apple (life point).
* CoolSword: The Holy Sword you get as a Hero. It swings faster and is more powerful in addition to being golden. It's also required to pass by a certain character.
* CrowningMusicofAwesome: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iezNuPLRsWA Battle 3/Leviathan]]
* DisappearedDad: Your father ain't around much. Don't despair. You have your best friend Johnny the dog and you get his sword.
** You get to see him again in Heaven. He doesn't have a name, but he's [[SoProudOfYou stereotypically dad-like]] and refills your health. It couldn't be anyone else.
** Your father [[spoiler:eventually reappears in the epilogue, alive and well in your family's house. Because the monsters never appeared in this world, your father never got killed by them either.]]
* FacelessEye
* FloatingPlatforms: Many many many floating platforms. Half the floor in some stages is such. Standing on the floor too long will make it collapse into a never ending pit/lava/ice etc.
* FoxChickenGrainPuzzle - Featuring a chicken, a caterpillar and a flower.
* GeniusLoci: One stage takes place around and inside a giant monster.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: The FinalBoss is an energy being that is blocking the gate back to the underworld, trapping the monsters in the world of Soleil.
* HeroesPreferSwords even though they act more like boomerangs and you spend most of your time [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwing them at stuff]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Amon, the newly crowned hero the player meets upon first visiting the King of Soleil. The player comes across him at various points in his adventures, even rescuing him from a block of ice in Fresia. In the altered timeline at the end of the game, Amon is portrayed as a BloodKnight who ends up in prison.
* KillItWithFire - The most powerful attack in the game happens to involve fire.
* MoonLogicPuzzle - One of the animals you get is an armadillo that can be used as a platform to jump on (previously only used to cross water). One puzzle requires you to throw it into a bottomless pit where it will float unsuspended in the air allowing you to use it as a stepping stone.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas - Averted. The Leviathan decides that you're not a bad person when you protect an illusory copy of your mother when fighting him.
* ThePlan- The seer gives you the ability to talk to animals and creates a path to the past in an attempt to have you bring about world peace.
* PlayableEpilogue: You get to walk around Soleil town after defeating the FinalBoss and see the effects your time travelling has had in the world. The statue of the hero in the town's fountain has been replaced by a statue of a goddess, Amon is locked in jail and the player's father is alive. It's implied that the player and all his animal companions remember the old timeline. It's also possible to die in this if you walk into the fireplace for too long.
* PuzzleBoss: Many many many.
* RippleEffectProofMemory: Even if you change the effects of time, you remain the same.
* RedHeadedHero: The PlayerCharacter, as both his parents are redheads as well.
* TheRival: Bull, who appears at your birthday party at the start of the game. He berates you for getting your father's sword, bragging that his is new and mocks you for going to the playground, [[{{Hypocrite}} even though you can catch him there yourself]]. When you become a hero, he proclaims that he hates you for it.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong with TIME TRAVEL.
* ShiftingSandLand: A desert setting with quicksand pits that don't suck you in but do spin you around and throw you. Necessary to reach some areas by slingshot jumping. Some pits have spikes in the middle.
* ShoutOut: SnoopDogg, Literature/LittleRedRidingHood, Film/TheWizardOfOz, and Literature/TheBible. The witch in Iris has this for her chant: [[TheManShow Ziggy...zaggy...oy...oy...oy.]]
* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Complete wiwth killer snow men. Melts into a water level.
* SpikesOfDoom - Averted, spikes only do minor damage.
* StockVideoGamePuzzle: All over the damn show.
* ThatsNoMoon - The first mountain range where you battle monsters? [[spoiler:It's a single giant monster. At the end, you talk to it at a time before it became so large.]]
* ThemeNaming: Many locations in the game are named after flowers.
* TheThreeTrials: The player must complete three obstacle courses in order to obtain the three medals required to become a Hero. You can't beat them all without progressing the story, as certain abilities are required for each one.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: The first technique you learn with it. Handy for cutting down grass (Familiar, no?) and necessary to beat some enemies/every damn boss. Even works as a boomerang.
* TowerOfBabel: The actual tower appears and it leads to Heaven.
* TurnsRed - The Octopus
* UnderTheSea: Complete with lack of oxygen. Can be ThatOneLevel.
* UpgradeArtifact: All the animals. Varies from fast running to an extra life to a rideable dinosaur. Many for your sword too. You can make it bounce of walls, guide it manually in flight, light it on fire or make it a freeze thrower.
* WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma - The American version has some translation issues.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: This game is all about the morality of killing monsters. Whether they deserve it, who starts the violence and how if effects their families.
* YouBastard: It is revealed that the monsters are intelligent and (initially) innocent, and you've spent the whole game committing genocide because [[FantasticRacism you assumed they deserved to die]]. An interesting premise, but [[BrokenAesop its presentation leaves much to be desired]].
* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: You can't actually jump until you talk to the rabbit in Dahlia Valley.
