Video Game: Battle Fantasia

A fighting game released by Aksys and Arc System Works, the creators of Guilty Gear. It was the first fighting game to be released by the company on the Xbox 360 and PS3. It is set in a cookie-cutter Medieval Fantasy world, which serves as a contrast to Guilty Gear's and BlazBlue's heavy Science Fiction setting. The art style is very colorful and heavily fantastical, and the game's themes are much Lighter and Softer than its predecessor.

Gameplay is also much slower than the Guilty Gear or BlazBlue series, resembling Street Fighter more than anything.

Not to be confused with a set of Magical Girl Real Trailer Fake Game clips.

The game saw a disc release on the 360, which is notoriously difficult to track down, and a digital release on the Playstation Network.

On July 7th, 2015, the game will have a Steam release under the title of Battle Fantasia -Revised Edition-.

This game provides examples of:

  • Moveset Clone: Urs and Marco, Olivia and Odile/Dokurod.
  • Our Dwarves Are All the Same: Averted by Donvalve, who is a giant-sized Dwarf with a valve protruding from his torso.
  • Panty Shot: The result of Marco using his grab on Coyori.
  • Pirate: Freed
    • It should be noted that Freed is not actually a Pirate, though he looks like one for being a (Flying) Ship Captain and having a Hook instead of a hand
  • Rebellious Princess: Olivia
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Watson
  • RPG Elements: In presentation, rather than gameplay. Health is called "HP" and displayed numerically, and the announcer calls "Level up!" as your special bar fills.
    • Even more prevalent in the official site, where each character has listed gear, items being carried and level. All for aesthetic purpose, of course. The characters themselves also tend to lampshade this.
  • SNK Boss: Deathbringer's second form, which can only be damaged in Heat Up mode.
  • Speech Impediment: Marco pronounces his "R"s like "W"s.
    • Justified, he's a child.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: Face's opinion on Olivia fighting to save her country.
  • Steam Punk: Present in some areas, specially evident in Donvalve.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Type A Coyori, Type B/C depending of the color Olivia & Odile
