Video Game: Thousand Arms
The main Thousand Arms cast

A 1998 PlayStation RPG created by Atlus and Red Entertainment, with a Dating Sim thrown in. An evil emperor wishes to use the Primordial Flame to become a god and destroy the world. Meis Triumph, Spirit Blacksmith, must journey to protect the Flame and defeat the emperor, as well as date as many ladies as possible (it actually does fit into the plot!) A hilarious game full of flirting, sexual innuendo, Lampshade Hanging, and of course some RPG adventure.

  • Meis Triumph: Horny Spirit Blacksmith.
  • Sodina Dawnfried: Knife-weilding White Magician Girl, main love interest out of a bushel of love interests for Meis. For some reason, she likes him back.
  • Muza Grifford: Meis' BFS carrying best friend. Freezes up around women, but manages to fall for Wyna.
  • Wyna Grapple: Stripperific pirate girl who wants to live her own life, and thus is often at odds with her father.
  • Kyleen Nelphe: Jaded and money-loving, her personality warms up due to the Power of Friendship.
  • Soushi Maharoba: Pretty samurai playboy.
  • Nelsha Stylus: Desires to be a Dress Master. A little girl, but appears much older when dressed in her possessed clothing.
