''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.
* 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 Rock Lord 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.
