''Little Samson'' (''Seirei Densetsu Lickle'', "Holy Bell Legend Lickle") is a PlatformGame for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem, published in 1992 by Creator/{{Taito}}. It was the only game from the obscure developer Takeru (also responsible for ''VideoGame/{{Cocoron}}'') to be released outside Japan, albeit in very limited quantities.

When Ta-Keed, the Prince of Darkness breaks loose and wreaks havoc on the countryside, Emperor Hans summons the owners of the Majestic Bells of Power: a boy, a dragon, a golem and a mouse. These four heroes, Little Samson, Kikira, Gamm and K.O., assemble to fight Ta-Keed and his minions.

!!Tropes appearing in this game:
* AllThereInTheManual: The backstory for each hero is only brought up in the manual.
* TheAtoner: Gamm.
* BalefulPolymorph: Every hero but Samson WasOnceAMan. Kikira was once a young girl who had to be turned into a dragon for unexplained reasons (though the wording implies it was to save her life) and Gamm was a thief who broke into the great wizard K.O.'s atelier and caused an accident that caused their transformation into a golem and mouse, respectively. Unusually, all three of the polymorphed characters seem happy in their new forms and retain them in the ending.
* ChainReactionDestruction: Bosses carry plenty of explosives around in case they get killed.
* ChargedAttack: Kikira's fire breath can be supercharged by holding down a button. The charging up is indicated by her body changing color.
* DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud: There are little funnel clouds that move from left to right or right to left and push characters around on contact. Players can ride on these to cross large gaps in certain levels.
* EasyModeMockery: Easy mode cuts out the final level.
* EmergencyEnergyTank: There are potions that provide full energy refills. Only the specific character that picked a potion up can use it.
* FakePlatform: A OneUp is deviously placed on a fake platform above spikes at the start of the cave stage.
* FragileSpeedster: K.O. the mouse is fast and able to climb even better than Little Samson but has the smallest health bar, dieing in one or two hits without upgrades.
* FightingYourFriend: Just as the party all comes together, Kikira turns on Little Samson and starts the first BossBattle because, the manual says, she "may need some coaxing by Samson to obey."
* FrictionlessIce: The game has ice that every character but Kikira will slip a little on.
* HeartContainer: Crystal balls add two units to any character's life bar.
* HeartsAreHealth: Big hearts restore four units of health, and small hearts only restore one unit.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: The title character shoots bells at enemies.
* MightyGlacier: Gamm the Golem is the slowest and least maneuverable of the four characters, but has a lot of health and attack power and can walk on spikes without getting hurt.
* ThePunishmentIsTheCrime: Gamm the Golem was once a great thief who stole a potion that turned him into a golem, the worst possible form one could have and be a thief. This caused his HeelFaceTurn.
* TrainingFromHell: The Japanese manual claimed that harsh mountain life was what gave Samson the ability to cling to ceilings and walls with his bare hands.
