'''Nitroplus Co., Ltd.''' (nitro+) is a Japanese game company specializing in {{Eroge}} and {{Visual Novel}}s. Its works are almost invariably [[DarkerAndEdgier dark in tone]], with an abundance of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, horror, rape, [[{{Gorn}} gore]] and violence.

Their first release was 2000's ''VisualNovel/PhantomOfInferno'', also was main writer Gen Urobuchi's first work with the company. Subsequent games such as 2003's ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' and 2008's ''VisualNovel/ChaosHead'' garnered enough acclaim for the studio's popularity to reach levels comparable to that of Creator/KeyVisualArts, Creator/{{TYPE MOON}} and [[Franchise/WhenTheyCry 07th Expansion]].

One of Nitro's most prolific creators is Creator/GenUrobuchi, who has gone on to write ''LightNovel/FateZero'', ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', and ''Anime/PsychoPass'' independent of the company. Vocalist Music/KanakoItou is another frequent collaborator, having performed the musical themes for many of their [=VNs=] and anime adaptations. On a sad (and perhaps ironic) note, their music producer Shingo Minamino was murdered tragically and brutally in the middle of a busy street.

For some bizarre reason, the company responsible for so many dark and disturbing stories has a mascot in the pink-haired, baby-faced, be-headphoned {{Moe}} character [[Anime/SuperSonico Super Sonico]].
