Agarest Senki (known as ''Record of Agarest War'' on consoles in North America and ''Agarest: Generations of War'' in Europe and on PC in North America) is a [[TurnBasedStrategy strategy RPG]] developed by Creator/IdeaFactory and Creator/RedEntertainment and released in North America by Aksys Games on 27 April 2010 for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, and for the PC on 3rd of October 2013 through UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} after getting Greenlit by users.

The story begins with Leonhardt, also known as General Golden Leo, turning against his men while protecting the life of a young elven girl and giving his life in the process. He is approached by a mysterious woman known as Dyshana, who agrees to resurrect him in exchange for an oath: To become a Spirit Vessel and pledge both his life and the lives of his descendants to her cause.

There is a prequel called ''VideoGame/AgarestSenkiZERO'' and a sequel called ''VideoGame/AgarestSenki2''. ''Agarest Senki ZERO'' got a PC release via Steam on 14th of April 2014. ''Agarest Senki 2'' followed on 19th of February, 2015.

Not to be confused with ''Roleplay/RecordOfLodossWar''.

!!Provides Examples Of:

* ActionGirl: At least one of the love interests in each generation is a strong melee attacker. Noah in third generation stands out, being practically an {{Expy}} of one [[Franchise/IndianaJones Henry Jones Jr.]]
* ACupAngst: Special mention goes to Lizerotte for this one. If all of your companions were busty...
* AdventurerOutfit
* AlignmentBasedEndings: Whether you keep to the Light, Dark, or Neutral path will effect your ending.
* AntiGrinding: Despite having a lot of things that encourage players to grind, straying out of the main quest to train adds more turns to the total count, [[LostForever which will result some events and characters to be blocked or lost permanently]]. Being stronger than the game expects also cuts down battle bonus and benefit you get in the main quests. [[SubvertedTrope US release modded the game so that you can grind in a dungeon all you want without spending turns.]]
* ArtificialStupidity: Auto-battle, why did you just have the squishy mage jump into melee range and physically attack an opponent who can counter? Why did you spend everyone's AP to ensure an overkill against one monster when there were seven others still on the battlefield? Why did you use an attack that was completely ineffective against/healed the enemy?
** However, auto-battle ''is'' good at moving (since it knows where the computer is going to move, also being the computer), as well as setting up Extended Area Combos. Just don't let it do the attacking as well.
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler: Each and every love interest you choose in the True ending. (Yes, Even [[{{Older than he looks}} Plum]] and Dyshana)]]
* BadassBoast: Rex loves doing this to keep reminding us the players that he is the real hero.
* BadassFamily: The Raglen family.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: In the Dark Ending.
* BattleHarem: Five generations' worth.
* BeachEpisode: Oddly there is one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phRko7d64SY for our viewing pleasure.]]
* BigEater: Faina, oh boy for an IllGirl she sure eats a lot.
* {{Bishonen}}: Many of the male characters are this, most notably Leonhardt, his descendants and Zerva.
* BladeOnAStick: Elaine (First Generation) and Valeria( Second Generation).
** Ganz (Third Generation) and Reverie (Fourth Generation).
* BreakMeter: Empties as the target gets hit and is vital to the strategy to the game. When the meter is emptied after being hit enough, attacks do extra damage and some Arts get in a few extra hits at the end of their animations. The game encourages you to use high break attacks first, then stack as many Break Arts as you can at the end.
* CallingYourAttacks: Everyone does this when they use their 3rd EX along with a BadassCreed.
* CaptainObvious: "Silver Sword: A sword made of silver"
* ChasteHero: Ladius is pretty much the epitome of this trope.
* ChewingTheScenery: Thoma and Winfield's conversation at the hot springs. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkvYI82nCSs&feature=related It must be seen to be believed.]]
* ChristmasCake: Interesting example: basically the last generation descendant Rex gets to choose any single girl as his love and some of them [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld might have fought alongside his ''Ancestor'' Leonhardt]].
* {{Combos}}: Which leads to breaks, then to Overkills.
* CombinationAttack: They must have spent most of this game's budget for those awesome combos.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: SO MUCH!
** Until you realize that almost any fight, including Midas, can be won by sticking one character right up in the boss's face and keeping everyone else about six spaces back. Almost all bosses have Impulse Wave or a similar skill, which will toss the dead character back to the others, just in range to be revived and sent right back the next turn. Repeat as necessary until you have the SP needed to just kill the boss in a single turn.
** The fact that the bosses will still have combination attacks as base skills rather than requiring the attacks that make up those skills still comes across as a bit of cheating though. They also seem to use less AP to pull of these abilities, as though they have the AP reducing Will Power even though they don't or don't even have the SP to have it active.
*** ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' has done a similar thing.
* CostumePorn
* CriticalStatusBuff: Some characters have passive abilities that activate when their health drops low enough
* CursedWithAwesome: Winfield is cursed by the Bracelet, thanks to it now he is fated to become a demon and bring the Bracelet to the Demon King, but on the same time the Bracelet won't let him die until he fulfilled his role therefore making him practically immortal.
* CuteMonsterGirl: In the second generation, there's Sherufanir, the {{Kitsune}}-like daughter of a male neocollom and a god-blooded human woman (which may disqualify her from counting, as she's a HalfHumanHybrid). She's also a valid choice in the RomanceSidequest.
** You've also got the harpuia Silvi and Murumina (in the fourth and fifth generations, respectively), and Qua the rabbit-type neocollom girl. Not to mention some of the capturable monsters, like the Nekomata-types.
* DatingSim: Shades of it. Yeah good luck choosing.
* DealWithTheDevil: Played with, although Leonhardt made a deal with Dyshana to protect Ellis, it's a for a noble goal and not a selfish one, although somewhere along the generations they tend to not agree.
* DecoyProtagonist: Leonhadt is on all promotional artwork, everyone thought he is the main character. He's not, it's his great-great grandson, Rex.
* DegradedBoss: [[spoiler: The Dark Knight, at first he is like some kind of TheJuggernaut for the party, but when they realizes that he's just a GiantMook all along he becomes less threatening.]]
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Hmm... [[spoiler:Did you just kick an evil god's ass?]]
** [[spoiler: Not just one of 'em. ''Six of them!'']]
** AgarestSenki2 also does this one ''in the opening!'' According to the gameplay however, it was a bad idea to punch out [[spoiler: [[FinalBoss Summerill]] and [[TrueFinalBoss Chaos]]]].
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Leonhardt dreams that he is killed by a BlackKnight, guess what happens three minutes later.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: ''TOO DAMN MANY TO COUNT'', but here are some examples. Beware: you might get the wrong ideas (or the right ones).
** Vira-Lorr's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLkFBsPMrGk&feature=related idea for curing hangovers]]
** Yayoi..see yumyum at the bottom for that.
** Luana [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKBbkmcW2-U&feature=related with new clothes]]
** Fiana's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHobfM_Vrm4 training ideas]]
* DoubleEntendre: The first boss is Jumbo Cock. [[spoiler: It's a giant evil chicken, you pervs!]]
** A lot of the dating sim dialogues are built with {{double entendre}}s ''RIVALING VideoGame/EndlessFrontier'' and ''VideoGame/ArTonelico''.
* DualBoss: In Fifth Generation, the Gurgs start appearing in [=caster/melee=] pairs.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: It took 5 generations but you finally did. Or [[BittersweetEnding did you]]?
* EasilyForgiven: [[spoiler: Melchior, oh God Melchior! First he ordered the annihilation of all elves and the syriums, then wage war to the other countries and he also forms an alliance with some evil monsters, and if you read his profile you'll know that he and his father is also the one that killed Leonhardt's family before the game even begins, and yet everyone seems to gone all forgiving him in the end! Oh, and do i already mention that he has no [[FreudianExcuse sympathetic past]] and he [[MyMasterRightOrWrong just following his]] [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed king]]?]]
* EpisodeZeroTheBeginning
* EroticEating: Happens at least one in every game. Bananas, sausages and other things. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsCdtS8pVxM You tell me.]]
* EleventhHourRanger: [[spoiler: EVERY previous generations protagonists and heroines.]]
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler: Vashtor]]
* {{Expy}}: Rex (5th generation) is basically Leonhardt (First generation) with different hair.
* FakeLongevity: All games in the series are long enough with the passing through generations aspect of it, but the sheer number of obligatory fights in each one of them makes it longer than it really is, ''really longer''.
* FiveManBand: To some extent present in all generations, though none work quite so well as the first generation's TrueCompanions with their [[CombinationAttack EX 3 Combo]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Absolute End]], excluding the love interests:
** TheHero: Leonhardt
** TheLancer: Zerva
** TheBigGuy: Borgnine
** TheSmartGuy: Vira-Lorr
** TheChick: Ellis
** SixthRanger: Winfield
* GambitPileup: Let's just say [[spoiler: Mobius, Chaos, and Summerill's plans collided with each other]] and go on from there.
* GenderEqualEnsemble: The final party in the fifth generation is made up of nine men and nine women. Subverted if you bring back all of the potential marionettes, in which case the women will outnumber the men, though these characters don't participate in the story in any way.
* GenerationXerox: The next generation's protagonist appearance will be based on who his mother was and will take up the same quest his father had. Rinse and repeat until one of them kills the final boss.
* GenkiGirl: Qua
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The promo art could be considered porn, yet somehow the game gets away with a "T" rating.
** The ESRB's explanation? [[ItMakesSenseInContext Despite the constant sexual innuendo, ridiculous amount of fanservice, and CGs of almost completely naked women, nothing strictly warrants an M rating]], probably because there are no sex scenes.
* GuardianEntity: Borgnine is this to Ellis.
* GuideDangIt: The True Ending is ''really'' easy to miss since you have to keep track of where the KarmaMeter is at and making sure you don't grind too much since a high "turn count" (battles fought) ''will'' lock you out of getting it.
* HappilyEverAfter: Certain endings for 5th generation girls. Here's an example: [[spoiler: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbTdZe8vUG0 Ellis's with Rex.]]]]
* TheHero: Leohardt and his descendants but with an interesting twist: [[spoiler: depending on who you choose as your [[LoveInterests girl to marry]], the descendants have different appearances; one could have blonde, black, or blue hair, long, short, etc..., or completely different appearances altogether.]]
* HeroicLineage: There are five generations of heroes, and you get to play each one.
* HeroicSacrifice: Well...in a sense. [[spoiler:When Leonhardt made that pact about his descendants and all, he pledged them to be seals to contain an evil god. Way to go stupid Ancestor; you screwed your descendants over royally.]]
** However, in the True Ending Route of the Digest mode of Agarest ZERO, [[spoiler: while he does ask for forgiveness from his descendants, he never once regretted his decision on that day to become a Soul Vessel for Dyshana. And besides, if Dyshana never showed up, none of his descendants would be alive anyway.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords: Leonhardt uses swords. Soul breeding will typically result in his descendants using them as well.
* HotSpringsEpisode: Present throughout the generations. Totally worth the dark karma.
* IdenticalGrandson: Rex can pretty much identical to his distant ancestor Leonhardt except for the hair color.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty
* InfinityMinusOneSword: There's a sword named [[InfinityPlusOneSword Shining Light]], to get it you have to: 1) Get to the true route; 2) Have 2 sword that costs more than 300000 G combined; 3) Have an item that you get by beating a boss in TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon; 4) Beat 5 over-leveled gods. In the other side you have the less powerful Leo's sword, which you automatically get by fulfilling the first step.
** Though if you're just looking for pure physical power, the extra STR given by Leo's Sword makes it stronger than the Shining Light, but just barely.
* InjuredVulnerability: Monsters need to be low on health before you can capture them.
* InstantDeathRadius: ThatOneBoss Midas will kill any party member within 2 squares with Phoenix Strike. No exceptions.
* InterfaceSpoiler: There are some, in pretty much all games so far, in the Gallery; specifically in the characters bio, party members will get an entry in the database as soon as they're introduced, there's the possibility that this member will do something of importance in the next generation, which usually is tied to TheHero of said generation, and the information about it will be available as sson as their general info became available in the Gallery; of course this is reserved for the supporting cast, TheProtagonist and LoveInterests of the given generation are free of this.
* InterspeciesRomance: Each of the generations that has a RomanceSidequest has at least one non-human girl as an option. Leonhardt (first generation) has a Syrium named Fyuria (basically a flat chested Elf). Ladius (second generation) has Sherufanir, a CuteMonsterGirl HalfHumanHybrid. Thoma (third generation) has Lavinia or Faina, sisters and High Elf/Dark Elf hybrids. Finally, Duran (fourth generation) has Silvi, a [[WingedHumanoid Featherfolk]].
* KarmaMeter: The simplified version.
* KillEmAll: [[spoiler: THE TRUE ENDING TOO!]]
* KnifeNut: Fyuria, Sherufanir, and Alberti. Beatrice can also equip knives too.
** All four also have a CombinationAttack with each other.
* LevelGrinding: Some grinding to required to beat the crap outta [[spoiler:an evil God that basically started this whole spirit vessel idea.]] Especially on hard mode.
* LimitBreak: Under certain conditions like low health, high SP, etc... your character can pull off a high damage special attack that is basically this.
** More specifically there are certain passive abilities that greatly increase damage at low health, and all characters gain three unique attacks that can only be used with large amounts of SP, which is gained in small amounts by attacking and being attacked as well as massive amounts to all party members by having characters die. [[DesperationAttack If both low HP and high SP are met on characters with the right passives]] [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome they can easily destroy an enemy hundreds of levels over them in a single blow.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: To be expected considering the game spans five generations.
* LoveConfession: Present throughout the generations; Leonhardt's descendants must choose a girl to marry.
* LoveInterests: Each protagonist has three potential brides per generation except for the last guy, who gets his pick from any of the single women who weren't a previous love interest.
* MagicKnight: Soul Breeding can result in the main character being one.
* MagicSkirt: Despite all the sexual fanservice the game throws at you, you will never get a glorious PantyShot from any of the girls. Even when tentacles are involved.
* MassiveRaceSelection: This game's got humans, syriums, high elves, dark elves, onerthes', neocolloms, ryulents, larvas, greers, nelths, harpuias and yulishees.
* MasterSwordsman: Leonhardt and his descendants are this.
** ...Provided who you chose as a wife in the previous generation would allow said descendants to wield swords.
* MetalSlime: Golden Bats. They typically have levels far higher than normal for the area you in, but have roughly the same health as the monsters you should be fighting, so if you can end the fight quickly you can see roughly a 600% or higher bonus to your rewards. However their Will Powers make it so they take significantly reduced damage from everything, they naturally resist magic, and once they hit 25% health physical attacks no longer work. Oh, and they [[RegeneratingHealth regenerate 20% of their health a turn]], can [[LifeDrain drain your health]], and can [[TheMedic easily fully heal all of the other enemies while they're at it.]] If the fight goes too long, expect to see a penalty on your rewards, rather than the standard reward you could've gotten had they just not been there.
** Your LimitBreaks help quite a bit toward getting through that 25% phase--they bypass the aforementioned Parry willpower entirely. On that note, the Accuracy willpower works too as long as that character can lead off the attacks and generate that much SP quickly enough.
* ModestyBedsheet: Appears in every generations ending.
* MontyHaul: Bought all the [[DownloadableContent DLCs]]? Congratulations, now nothing can stop you from annihilating all enemies from Gen 1 to Gen 4.
* MoodDissonance: For all the sexy scenes the game likes to advertise with, the story is a fairly serious war drama. Which makes it all the more jarring when the scene shifts to a bunnygirl fellating a banana.
* MoodWhiplash: The mood at the end of Generation 4? Hopeful, and on a high note. And then you're shunted to the beginning of Generation 5, where the very first thing you get to hear is how screwed everything is on the demon-fortified continent, how the best resistance against the forces of darkness fell ten years ago and started the decline, and how victory is highly unlikely, even if one could pull off the herculean task of uniting the remaining human countries in spite of the myriad of demon fortresses.
** Oh this game has a ton of these. Just check the MoodDissonance trope.
* MoreFriendsMoreBenefits: It is possible, [[GuideDangIt with judicious use of a guide]] to have all 3 love interests at intimacy 5 (blushing) at the end of every generation. It's even required to unlock some events.
* MultipleEndings: Three endings: True, Normal, and Bad.
* MySisterIsOffLimits: Lavinia tries this with Thoma. It doesn't work.
* {{Ninja}}: First generation love interest Fyuria fits this trope.
** Beatrice fits this better, considering two of her unique abilities specifically state that they're Ninja Arts.
* NewSeasonNewName: Leo's Golden Sword seems to change each games, in the first it's named Leo's Sword, in ZERO it's named Treasure Sword of Oath, and in the second it's named Veldafard.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Leonhardt knocks the dark knight off a cliff at the end of the first generation. He's back in the second generation [[spoiler: as Vashtor]].
* NoPointsForNeutrality: Averted. The best ending requires a Neutral karma meter.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Hello there random 3D monsters
* OddNameOut: Ellis, Alice and...Fiona?
* OldSaveBonus: If you have a cleared data on Agarest 1, you can use it to import data to Agarest Zero. Likewise, AgarestSenki2 will also be using this setup by importing data from Agarest Zero.
* OurElvesAreDifferent: For one, they seem to age to a certain point and then stop; and two, they're not always called elves.
* OptionalSexualEncounter: Played with, you have to marry one of the girls in the current generation where you are treated to a scene of them with nothing but bedsheets. One of the few [[EasternRPG JRPGs]] to let the player have sex with their love interest.
* PalsWithJesus: Borgnine not only is one of the first characters to join your party, but also happens to be a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Larva]], a lesser god.
* PimpedOutDress: Given all the pretty ladies, this trope shoes up several times, from mini dresses with frill and trimmings, to grand dresses, including {{Fairytale Wedding Dress}}es.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Thoma gives a fairly impressive one to a racist elf.
--> '''[=Young Elf=]''': B-But... had she not brought you here, none of this would have happened! Even if the dark elf did not draw the monsters herself, this is still her fault!
--> '''[=Thoma=]''': A slow mind will never win a woman's heart, you know. Besides, she has a name--Lavinia. And a pretty name at that. Perhaps you could be a gentleman and use it?
--> '''[=Young Elf=]''': Be silent, outsider! You know nothing of us! You should not profess opinions on that which you do not understand!
--> '''[=Thoma=]''': I may be an outsider, but I hardly see why that deserves such an exaggerated display of emotion. And where, may I ask, were you, while we were fighting to save your village? While Lavinia was fighting desperately to save your village? How pathetic you are, to cast blame on one who risked her life to protect yours. Elf, dark elf, it matters not. A woman is a woman. There are women who surpass me in strength. There are those who I surpass. But many women do not know how to fight. If you are strong, what is your obligation as a man? What must you do when women are in danger? Do you cast aside those whom you do not care for, and abandon them to their fate? Or do you give aid to women in peril, regardless of whether you love or hate them? How can you call yourself a man when you hide from danger and tell the person who saved you to leave? You, my friend, are not only a failure as a man, but as a person as well.
* RegionalBonus: The North American version came out 9 months after the European version, and fixed much of that version's BlindIdiotTranslation. This version also lets you grind in a dungeon without spending turns.
* RelationshipValues: The better a potential love interest likes that generation's protagonist, the better stats their son gets in the next.
* ReplacementLoveInterest: Ellis denies it but it's pretty much obvious that she loves Rex because he looks like Leonhardt.
* SchoolSwimsuit: Winfield forces Hildegard to wear one.
* SeriousBusiness: Winfield (and later Thoma) takes peeking girls at hot spring too seriously, to the point he thinks it's worth dying for.
* SexSells: The US marketing campaign for the game actually managed to exaggerate the amount of {{Fanservice}} [[UpToEleven in the game]] -- there's a lot of it, but from the promotions, you'd think the game contained nothing else. This managed to backfire spectacularly -- at least one store was reported to sell the special edition wrapped in white paper with the warning that it is the "(Adult Only) Special Edition."
* SiblingYinYang: Fyuria has light-based attacks, her brother Zerva has darkness-based attacks. Together, they have a powerful YinYangBomb.
* {{Stripperiffic}}:
** Fyuria wear TooManyBelts, and not a lot else.
** Sherufanir wears a dress that combines an ImpossiblyLowNeckline with a window in the front to show off her garter-belt.
* SurplusDamageBonus: Overkilling enemies guarantees an item drop, in addition the enemy's normal random drop.
* SwordOfPlotAdvancement: Leonhardt's Sword, you'll need it.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill: There's is an overkill message if you do so, and a few good items when doing them.
* ThirdEye
* TimedMission: The true ending is locked out if you take more than 500 turns to get there.
* TimeSkip: The story spans 5 generations, so this is a must.
* TokenEvilTeammate: Vashtor, as if it wasn't obvious.
* TranslationTropes: The text gets a full translation, but there was no voice acting done so all the characters speak in Japanese.
* TrueCompanions: Each generation gets their own.
** The first generation fits this more than the rest however.
* {{Tsundere}}: A male example is Duran, so very much so. Watching him get flustered is half the fun. And one of his potential love interests Ryuryu is a mix of this, kuudere, and EmotionlessGirl, making for some rather interesting cutscenes (read: adorable)
** The "{{Canon}}" route (if you based it on the opening, the portraits of the trophy list, and the image of the page itself) has the following route: Fyuria, Valeria, Lavinia, and Hilda. One thing in common? They're all [[{{Tsundere}} tsunderes]].
* UnwantedHarem: Played with near the end, basically there are more female than male party members and as such it comes to this. Especially in the last generation with Rex who is basically Leonhardt 2.0 with ''ALL'' the girls who the others before him never married or fought alongside.
** Actually weaponized in the combo EX Pink Poison. Queuing up the level 2 EX of Rex, Qua, Beatrice, Murmina, Plum, and Reverie plays a skit in which the five of them confront Rex as he faces down the targeted monster. They then begin glowing with menacing auras and charge at him in a BigBallOfViolence. Rex narrowly escapes. The monster is not so lucky...
* UpdatedRerelease: Reappearance added in more voicing, upgraded the visuals, added in the gallery, as well as new items and a new dungeon. Zero's Digest Mode for the first game cut out all non-story battles, locked onto the true end, and added in new scenes to the [[PlayableEpilogue post-game content]] that imply or outright state relations between characters in the two games [[spoiler: such as Shernini being the founder of Sharona's hometown and Alice being Ellis's ancestor or even mother.]]
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Fyuria admits that when she was a kid when there are no wars, she used to be a ''very'' cute generic girl, all she wants is a doll and making a flower crown. Aww...
* WeAreAsMayflies: Of all the races presented in-game, humans are the only ones that noticeably age over the generations.
* WeHaveReserves: Have to [[spoiler: sacrifice your life to seal one of the five towers in the world?]] No worry! Make children and let them carry on your task!
* WhamEpisode: Sure, you can see [[spoiler: Vashtor's]] betrayal coming from a mile away. What you don't get to see is that [[spoiler: he kidnaps Ellis, one of your GameBreaker units, and now you have to contend with Keith without her.]]
* WifeHusbandry: Most of Rex harem consists of the girls that raised him ever since he was born.
* WolfpackBoss: Once you're used to killing DualBoss Gurgs, the game throws four of them at you in one fight.
* YouAreAlreadyDead: A key mechanic to the games; You can continue to attack an enemy long after it's died, as long as you keep the attacks going with the intent to push the enemy into [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverKill Overkill]] for [[RandomDrop extra items]] needed to improve your equipment. Once you stop, the enemy, or enemies, will die one by one. [[ShoutOut This is also the name of an achievement for getting a 650 hit chain on an enemy in Zero.]]
* YouCantFightFate: [[spoiler:Bad ending has this.]]
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Congratulations! [[spoiler:After dozens upon dozens of hours worth of playtime, you've finally reached the end of the fifth generation and have defeated the FinalBoss who was responsible for the evil that occurred throughout the game. Time to sit back and enjoy the ending? No! Now you have to take care of 5 sealed gods and the ''real'' [[TrueFinalBoss final boss]]]].


!!Record of Agarest War Marriage

The newest Agarest game of Compile Heart, however this time they're teaming up with the former staff who worked on the SummonNight games. The artwork is now done instead by someone named "Blade" instead of the usual artwork by Hirano Katsuyuki.

The story goes that the first generation protagonist will fail to kill the demon king so his three choices of wives will have to carry his soul to pass on to his descendants so that one day, they get to kill the demon king.

Tis game is for the UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable, a departure from the usual platform for the series.

----
!! ''Record of Agarest War Marriage'' contains the following tropes:

* ClothingDamage: A first for the series as a gameplay mechanic. The lesser clothing a heroine has, the more powerful she becomes.
* DatingSim: Gains a lot more precedence compared to the first three games.
