The Fantasia Trilogy is a Freeware Otome Game Series created by Memento Mori Games (led by Azurextwilight), consisting of three games - Fantasia: Realm of Thanos, Fantasia: Requiem of the Abyss and Fantasia: Memento of Grand Finale. The final game has yet to be completed, but a demo has been released.In Fantasia: Realm of Thanos, Cheryl Nielsen (who you can actually name whatever you want) , an Ordinary High School Student, is given a very important mission by a mysterious woman (whom she calls "White Lady"): to save Fantasia from the Demon Lord, Oswald. To do that, she must choose to save one of the four other boys who have suffered as much as she has and use The Power of Love to stop him. But, as you find out in the canon path, it turns out said Demon Lord just wanted to be loved, and after Cheryl decides to show him some affection and understanding, he does a Heel-Face Turn, redeeming himself. They eventually end up together as the canon pairing.The second game, Fantasia: Requiem of the Abyss, deals with Thanos' imminent plot to Take Over the World, as the latent tension between the Kingdom of Seldrus and the Southern Empire of Valdrox threaten to start a new war. Now it is Valen Leingold's (Cheryl and Oswald's only daughter) duty to go on a journey, along with a colorful group of allies, to, yet again, save Fantasia from Thanos' evil plans and stop The End of the World as We Know It.Then comes an interlude game, Fantasia: Before Requiem, a non-interactive visual novel which provides intricate backstories of the characters of Requiem of the Abyss. Though it is chronologically set before Requiem of the Abyss, it is highly recommended that it be read after playing Requiem of the Abyss.Fantasia: Memento of Grand Finale is set 200 years after Requiem of the Abyss. The Guild, now called Pacifist Alliance Organization, is by far the most powerful force of Fantasia. Having stopped the meaningless struggle for resources between kingdoms a few years prior to the begining of the game, PAO now seizes control of the land, trying to keep the world's increasingly frail balance to the best of their abilities. In the midst of this, Lenarche Seleniarius, a girl who has no idea who her parents are, has been having vivid dreams of various major plot points of the previous games. She joins PAO to try to find out more about her past. Only a demo is out so far.Fantasia has a WMG page and a character page, so please refrain from putting character specific tropes on this page.
This series of visual novels provides examples of:
All Girls Want Bad Boys: All of the main characters end up with a Jerkass. Seems to be the mentality of the writer, as well as a large chunk of the fan base.
And I Must Scream: Demons are reborn to accomplish just one goal which they couldn't fulfill when they were human. This goal is the only thing that drives their life. As long as this goal isn't fulfilled, the demon will suffer constant pain, and the only thing tha can supress that pain is working towards their goal. Knowing that, you can't feel but feel a little bit sorry for them.
Fantastic Fruits and Vegetables: To the Fantasia characters, tropical fruits from our world are this. Oswald loves pineapple, Cain loves mango, and Word of God had confirmed that Shea loves durian and Thanos loves guava. Also, Gil, Raven and Zephyr like vegetables.
Time Skip: Between the first and second games there is a gap of 50 years, while the second and third ones have a gap of 200 years.
Trademark Favorite Food: The realm inhabitants (mostly the Leingolds) love their tropical fruits. Oswald loves pineapple, Cain really likes his mangoes, Shea is addicted to durians and Thanos has a soft spot for guava. Apart from them, Leon likes meat and Gil likes vegetables. Zephyr claims to like broccoli in an interview.
Love Potion: After your first playthrough, you're able to find a merchant in the middle of the street. Available for purchase, there is a pheromone perfume. If you choose to buy it, you will get a Harem Ending.
Murder the Hypotenuse: Again in the Ultimate Dark Ending, Cheryl kills Vestoria so that she is the only one who can have Oswald.
Naïve Newcomer: Cheryl is slightly lost when she first gets to Fantasia, what with the different races, taboos and inner workings of the world she's not aware of.
Boy Meets Girl: Valen and Cain. When they were young, Valen was Cain's only friend and he lost her after she completely forgot all their times together. Years later, they meet again and fall in love once more. Valen believes that feelings are more important than memories.
Kubrick Stare: Thanos' eyes are shown doing this on the main menu.
Lonely Piano Piece: At some point in the game, a mysterious piano piece starts playing though the guild's quarters. When Lenarche questions Ignitio about it, he says this happens every night and that nobody knows who the piano player is.
The Piano Player: In MoGF, occasionally the Guild will hear an unknown person playing the piano on the upper floor, and even plays a song which only Lenarche knows from the past that she does not remember. The piano player's identity is not revealed in the demo, but everyone already believes him to be Zephyr.
