Nitroplus Co., Ltd. (nitro+) is a Japanese game company specializing in Eroge Visual Novels. Its works are almost invariably dark-themed, with an abundance of Eldritch Abominations, horror, rape, gore and violence.

They first came to general attention with the release of Phantom of Inferno in 2000, which also was main writer Gen Urobuchi's first released work with the company. Since then it has become well recognized in visual novel circles, such as the releases of Saya no Uta in 2003 and Chaos;Head in 2008, along with Key Visual Arts, TYPE MOON and 07th Expansion. Another note, is that their music producer, Shingo Minamino, was murdered tragically, and brutally in the middle of a busy street.

Gen Urobuchi is one of the most prolific people in the company, as shown in the original light novel for Fate/Zero and their widely famous Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Nitroplus' second original anime. They also work with Kanako Itou, who has perfomed most of the musical themes for their VNs or its adaptations. For some bizarre reason, the company responsible for so much dark and disturbing literature has their own cute mascot; Super Sonico, a pink-haired, baby-faced, be-headphoned girl.
