The seventh game in ''Franchise/{{Ys}}'' franchise.

Adol's journeys take him to the land of Altago, and he finds himself caught in a significant role in the land's upcoming destiny.

!!This game has the examples of:

* AerithAndBob: Used for two siblings Mustafa and Cruxie. Mustafa is a real Arabic name, so it is fitting for someone from a location based on part of North Africa. His younger sister, Cruxie, however, has a name that doesn't sound like something someone from North Africa would have.
* AllInARow: All current party members are displayed as the player moves about.
* ArbitraryHeadCountLimit: Only three characters can participate in a battle.
* AnAxeToGrind / DropTheHammer: Mustafa uses axes and hammers, [[spoiler:as does Cruxie when she replaces him]].
* BecomingTheMask: Subverted with [[spoiler: Scias and Tia]], They only acted kind and helpful as part of their disguise, while not to avert suspicion it was to ensure no one saw the warning signs of the Winds Of Destruction outside of the Slowly growing Titanos attacks. When Alicia tries to imply this she gets coldly laughed at for thinking so.
** DoubleSubverted when [[spoiler: Scias admits to respecting the king]] and when [[spoiler: Tia reveals that Maya's illness is part of her motivation to cleanse Altago]].
* {{BFS}}: Couple of Adol's Strike-type weaponry fit the bill.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Tialuna, the Maiden of Demise]], with [[spoiler:Rul-Ende, The Root of All Existence]] as the BiggerBad.
* BlindSeer: Mishera.
* BonusBoss: The three Titano Hunts.
* BossSubtitles: As per the series, and mixes it up a bit with one boss having the subtitle [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal "big bug beast"]].
* CantDropTheHero: Played straight due to Adol's role in the plot as the Dragon Warrior.
* CavalryBetrayal: After getting the last crest from the Sea Dragon on Ruin Island you go back to your ship only to be attacked by a giant Titano, Just in the nick of time the Dragon Knights show up and Save you. [[spoiler: That is only half true however, They are actually here to rescue Aisha and Arrest you for "kidnapping" her and assassinating the King who was murdered mere moments after Adol leaved said King's bedroom]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Raud starts off as a {{Jerkass}} who uses his status to cause trouble about the Altago City, but [[spoiler:after the death of his father]], he starts cleaning up his act and by the end of the game [[spoiler:even becomes Maya's official guardian]].
* ContinuityNod: The adventures in ''The Ark of Napishtim'' are mentioned when the party meets with Geis.
* CuteMute: Maya, who hasn't spoken since the death of her parents though she's still capable of uttering sounds. She communicates through gestures and facial expressions.
* DisappearsIntoLight: [[spoiler:After the Root of All Existence is defeated, the Dragons and Tia disappear into the light afterwards]].
* DiscOneFinalDungeon: Ruins Island acts as one before the story goes through some major shifts.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Cruxie dies from Iskan Fever after the party meets with Angue-Barl, but is soon resurrected with the Flame Dragon Stone and joins the quest in behalf of her brother]].
* TheDragon: The Knight of Despair [[spoiler:Scias]] for [[spoiler:Tialuna]].
* DudeWheresMyRespect: [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when a man asks you to go find some earrings for him after the village elder already told him (and everyone else in the village) about you and how important you are: "Strange men with weapons are the best at finding lost earrings, right?"
* DuelBoss: Adol is challenged to a duel by Geis, as he wants to test his strength.
* TheDulcineaEffect: With a twist this time.
* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:Rul-Ende, the Root of All Existence in Altago]].
* ElementalPowers: All playable characters have their own elemental powers.
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:Tia and Scias reveal themselves as the villains of the game when is engulfed by Wind of Destruction.]]
* EvolvingAttack: Characters' special moves become stronger and faster as they use them.
* {{Feelies}}: Some versions of the game came with soundtrack [=CDs=].
* FinalBossNewDimension: Final boss battle resides in Altago's afterlife, and the fight it self starts in a new dimension.
* FirstTown: Altago City.
* FiveManBand: Adol and his party:
** TheHero: Adol
** TheLancer: Dogi The Wallcrusher
** TheBigGuy: Mustafa (later replaced by [[spoiler:his sister Cruxie, of all people]]).
** TheChick: Aisha and [[BlackMagicianGirl Mishera]] share this role.
** TagAlongKid: Elk. [[FragileSpeedster Doesn't mean he's useless, though.]]
** TheSixthRanger: Geis.
* FullBoarAction: Second boss battle is against a large boar named Es Gallion in Shannoa forest.
* GaiasVengeance: [[spoiler:The Wind of Destruction acts as this, purifying Altago (read: wipe out all life on it including the land itself to begin anew on a blank slate) if the world balance is broken]].
* GenreSavvy: Dogi is getting this way and occasionally [[LampshadeHanging hangs a lampshade]] on some of the slightly predictable things that happen to he and Adol.
* GiantEnemyCrab: Old Waterway is filled with these, and in the end of it Adol and co. have to fight even bigger one named Valisa Luti.
* GirlOfTheWeek: Tia.
* GoodShepherd: Dr. Daleyon more or less fits this description. He is a kind man who genuinely cares for other people.
* GuestStarPartyMember: Sigroon replaces Aisha for some time in the latter's absence and fights the same way, and the same thing, down to weapon usage, happens with [[spoiler:Mustafa letting Cruxie fight alongside Adol as he stays behind to keep watch over his village]].
* HarderThanHard: The Nightmare difficulty significantly boosts bosses' health and strength.
* HeroicMime: Aside from battles, Adol has no written dialogue, but his interactions are relayed to the player ("Adol explained X" and so on).
* HopelessBossFight: The first fight with [[spoiler:Scias]]. You can knock down his health a little bit, but once you reach a certain point all your attacks stop doing damage and you just have to let him kill you. Hope you didn't waste your healing items.
* ItemCrafting: You can create certain equipment and items by gathering the right synthesis materials.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Cruxie's name is pronounced "croo-she-ah" but spoken quickly, per the instruction manual (and Cruxie herself when you first meet her). Not "crucks-ee".
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Scias is the first character in the series to have something recognizable as a katana.
* LostForever: A number of quests must be completed before a certain event in the story renders them unfinishable.
* TheMagicGoesAway: [[spoiler:The defeat of Rul-Ende causes the Dragon Gods' disappearing from Altago forever along with the Wind of Destruction]].
* MarathonBoss / SequentialBoss: The final fight consists of four phases, all but the first of which take a long time. The entire battle can easily last upwards of an hour.
* MasterSwordsman: Scias is presented as one.
* PaperThinDisguise: Aisha sports these when ventures off from the palace as KingIncognito.
* TheReveal:
** [[spoiler:Tia and Scias are actually villains]].
** [[spoiler:Dragon Warrior's role is to represent all of Altago's hope, and act as a sacrifice for its destruction]].
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Aisha is not content on just sittin in the palace, she actively investigates the going-ons in Altago to help her father.
* SandWorm: One of the optional bosses is a sandworm named Soldi Orm in Segram.
* ScrewDestiny: [[spoiler:The latter half of the game uses this as characters' motivation after they learn [[HumanSacrifice the truth]] about Adol's real role as the Dragon Warrior.]]
* SequentialBoss: The final battle naturally. It consists of fighting the BigBad with your current party. Your entire party then takes on the BiggerBad with three characters taking on the first stage which TurnsRed, a different three characters taking on the second stage which also TurnsRed and Adol soloing the last stage which consists of two parts. Better hope your healing items last you.
* ShoutOut:
** A peddler in Altago has two longmas (beasts of burden) named [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons "Snowball" and "Santa's Helper"]]
** A gossipy man in the Altago was trying to remember the name of the flower girl. "Irith?... Eris? Iris?" He's way wrong, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII but the name sounds familiar...]]
** After [[spoiler:Adol defeats the titano during the execution ceremony after being framed for murdering Altago's king]], Dogi and Geis break through a door and the latter says, [[{{Film/Scarface}} "Say hello to my little friend!"]] Funnily enough, Geis's face is scarred.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: Tia has many of these elements. [[spoiler:Until she decides to sit in judgment over all Altago, anyway.]]
* SquishyWizard: Mishera can deal good damage but cannot take much punishment, especially in higher difficulties.
* {{Stripperific}}: [[spoiler:Tia, post-reveal,]] wears [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains a skimpy outfit]].
* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: Every time you see a Crystal in front of a path you know a boss is coming up.
* TrickBoss: After defeating the BigBad, the BiggerBad shows itself.
* TwentyBearAsses: Nearly all of the optional quests require you to fetch a certain number of a particular type of item. Somewhat justified in that you're being asked to fetch things for researchers and merchants who want to study Altago or have goods representing each region or tribe.
* TheUnderworld: The Well of Souls, Altago's afterlife.
* ViciousCycle: [[spoiler:Altago has wiped clean several times before the game's events, and is now gearing for another.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Tialuna and Scias]].
* WhipItGood: Altago's official executioner Ursa prefers a whip. The coliseum, where she resides is even described as a place of gratuitous whipping.
