''Paladin's Quest'' (known as ''Lennus'' in Japan) is an RPG for SNES. Its most notable features are its unusual magic system and the mercenaries you can hire to pad out your party. It was also noteable for being very, very weird.

Chezni is a 13-year-old boy in a magic school who accidentally activates [[spoiler:[[SealedEvilInACan an ancient weapon of mass destruction]]]] and then finds himself WalkingTheEarth on a quest to defeat it and [[SavingTheWorld save the world]]. Chezni soon meets with a girl called Midia, also a spiritualist, who becomes the only permanent companion on his quest. The plot is complicated by the world-conquering ambitions of the EvilOverlord Zaygos who already rules the southern continent and is eyeing the northern one.

A sequel, LennusII, was released in Japan in 1996, unfortunately, it was [[NoExportForYou never localized]]. The fact that it was released a month after the Nintendo 64 in Japan and the obscurity of the original in North America were probably significant factors.

!! This game contains examples of:
* AllInARow
* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: You can only ever have up to four playable characters in your party.
* {{Bishonen}}: Zaygos turns out to be one.
** Also Duke, the LetsPlay even nicknames him "Duchess" to play on it. [[spoiler: It turns out there's a [[TheMole very good reason for this.]]]]
* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: Several, including a continent full of people who live in egg-like houses and a town early in the game built entirely on kites.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: One undead enemy is called a "spilit."
* BossRemix: The final battle music includes remixed portions of the main battle theme and Zaygos' theme. Likewise, the fight with Zaygos is a remixed version of his main theme.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Once you get your method of flight, and the map [[spoiler: reveals the half of the world you didn't know existed]], you can clearly see things that were put in there by the devs for laughs, like [[spoiler: an island shaped like googly eyes]].
* BrokenBridge: Happens a lot.
* ButThouMust
* CastFromHitpoints: The entire magic system is based on this.
* CommonplaceRare: There is a limited amount of bottles you can acquire in the game, especially of the bigger varieties.
* CrutchCharacter: Nails. He's one of the strongest mercenaries when you meet him in the Underworld thanks to his missile attack. However, he can only heal by draining enemy hit points (and for a pitiful amount), can't level up, disappears from the party if destroyed, and can only be re-recruited by going all the way back to the Underworld.
* DegradedBoss
* DoomedHometown
* ElementalPowers: [[DishingOutDirt Earth]], [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[BlowYouAway Air]], Sky, [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]], Sphere, and Heart. And no, Heart is far from useless.
* EncounterRepellant
* EnemyWithout / TheHeartless: Suggested to be the true nature of [[spoiler: the Monsters of Dal Gran and Noi Gren.]]
* EvilOverLord: Zaygos.
* FacelessEye: Doth.
* GlobalAirship
* GuestStarPartyMember: Several.
* HealingSpring
* HeroicMime: Chezni.
* HistoryRepeats: It's shown during the time travel episode that the conflict between Chezni, Midia, and Zaygos over Dal Gren is a repetition of the events that happened between Kormu, Sophie, and Gabnid 1000 years ago. Chezni and Midia are explicitly indicated to be the successors to Kormu and Sophie, and Zaygos and Gabnid share the same attack pattern as bosses.
* HopelessBossFight: No less than ''three'' different ones, but probably many more total for most players if they finish the game.
* IdiotBall: Zaygos gets handed one right after an episode of surprising competence.
* KidHero: Chezni and Midia are both 13.
* LethalJokeItem: The "bib" is actually a very strong body armor.
* LoadBearingBoss / {{Synchronization}}: Dal Gren, Noi Gren and their monsters Strabo, Kaymat and Lokiarn.
* LostTechnology
* MadScientist
* MagicKnight: Several characters, including the main hero.
* TheMaze: The crystal world.
* MechaMooks
* MoneySpider: In particular, the Gold Gubos drop a lot of gold if you can defeat them.
* MusicalSpoiler: There is a particularly obvious one when you first enter Joyce's baker's shop.
* NominalImportance
* NonLethalKO: Characters who fall in battle are back to 1 hp after the battle if the party wins.
* OneHundredPercentCompletion: Every mercenary you recruit will appear in the big party at the end of the game. To get everyone to appear you have to recruit every single mercenary (some of whom may be LostForever if you didn't recruit them the first time you go through the area they're in). While this doesn't actually unlock anything special, it does add a bit to the ending since every merc has something unique to say to the party.
* OneWingedAngel
* OptionalPartyMember: The mercenaries. Some of them want money while others'll join for free if you let them.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: Midia's crown.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
* RandomEncounters
* {{Retraux}}: One house is done in the style of the original DragonQuest, complete with priest sprite.
* SavingTheWorld
* SealedEvilInACan
* [[spoiler:StableTimeLoop]]
* SwordOfPlotAdvancement
* StatGrinding: Your affinities with the spirits that determine how powerful your spells are grow by casting spells related to those spirits.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:The mercenary G Rasav.]]
* UndergroundLevel
* UndergroundMonkey
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The Crystal Maze, which is also ThatOneLevel. There the game changes from an RPG into a puzzle game, a very hard puzzle game.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Chezni in the beginning.]]
* UselessUsefulSpell: Partially averted and even inverted. The monsters' attempts to hit the players with status effects and instant death have a miserable rate of success. The instant death spells cast by the players at the monsters don't fare any better than that, but [[MagikarpPower a fully leveled-up Freeze]] has a decent rate of success in player hands and makes some early boss fights much easier.
* WalkingTheEarth
* WizardingSchool: You start the game in one of these. [[spoiler:It doesn't last long, though.]]
* WombLevel: You get to explore the insides of a dragon. [[spoiler: It's a fairly straight tunnel. The dragon's mouth [[FridgeHorror is the exit]].]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: Zaygos proves himself quite savvy by [[spoiler: predicting and preparing for your entry into his temple]]. However despite having using it to his advantage he shows himself as a major BadBoss by [[spoiler: having the entire town massacred as punishment for allowing you to sneak in. [[JerkAss Despite having made it part of his plans in the first place.]]]]
