''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 first two games were developed in UsefulNotes/RenPy, and the final game has yet to be completed, but a demo has been released.

In ''Fantasia: Realm of Thanos'', [[PlayerCharacter Cheryl Nielsen]] (who you can actually [[HelloInsertNameHere name whatever you want]]) , an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, is given a very important mission by a [[MysteriousWaif mysterious woman]] (whom she calls "White Lady"): to save [[MagicalLand Fantasia]] from the [[SealedEvilInACan 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 ThePowerOfLove to stop him. But, as you find out in the {{canon}} path, it turns out [[spoiler: said Demon Lord [[IJustWantToBeLoved just wanted to be loved]], and after Cheryl decides to show him some affection and understanding, he does a HeelFaceTurn, redeeming himself. They eventually [[HappilyMarried end up together]] as the canon pairing.]]

The second game, ''Fantasia: Requiem of the Abyss'', deals with [[BigBad Thanos']] imminent plot to TakeOverTheWorld, as the latent tension between the Kingdom of Seldrus and the Southern Empire of Valdrox threaten to start a new war. Now it is [[PlayerCharacter Valen Leingold's]] (Cheryl and [[spoiler: Oswald's]] only daughter) duty to go on a journey, along with [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits a colorful group of allies]], to, yet again, save Fantasia from Thanos' evil plans and stop TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

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''.

Originally, the third game was going to be called ''Fantasia: Memento of Grand Finale'' and was 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, [[PlayerCharacter Lenarche Seleniarius]], a girl who has [[DoorstopBaby no idea who her parents are]], has been having [[BadDreams 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 was released before the game was cancelled. A different third game is currently in development.

''Fantasia'' has a [[WMG/FantasiaOtomeGameSeries WMG page]] and a [[Characters/FantasiaOtomeGameSeries character page]], so ''please'' refrain from putting character specific tropes on this page.

[[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] Disney's {{Disney/Fantasia}}.

!! This series of visual novels provides examples of:


[[folder: The Fantasia Series in general]]
* TheAbridgedSeries: Check out Ominias' {{Fanon}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN03JHYNe6w videos]].
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: [[spoiler: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.
* AndIMustScream: 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.
* {{Animesque}}
* AnimeHair: Some characters have rather spiky hair. Zephyr's (From [=MoGF=]) hair is not very spiky, save that really quite huge spike near the top of his head that the fandom enjoys calling "Snarkfin".
* AsLongAsThereIsEvil: In Realm of Thanos and Requiem of the Abyss, even if you successfully defeat Oswald and/or Thanos, they claim this trope.
** [[spoiler: unless you're on the true ending(s) in each game]]
-->'''Thanos:''' So you think you've won... But don't forget. As long as Oswald and the Realm, hatred and pain still exists... They will complete my dreams...
* AuthorAppeal: So, how many of those NiceGuy characters are the official love interest? [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys None of them]], you say? Notably, even though Leon isn't the canon love interest in the first game, he gets almost as much development as Oswald [[SpotlightStealingSquad outside of his own arc]].
* BabiesEverAfter: Eventually, almost every couple from ''Realm of Thanos'' to ''Requiem of the Abyss''.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Cain and Valen are prime examples. Lenarche and Zephyr seem to be heading down this route, too.
** So are Shea and Seraphina as well as Alviss and Euphie, both of which was pretty much FoeYay.
* BetaCouple:
** In Realm of Thanos - Leon and [[spoiler: Melodia]], Gil and [[spoiler: Xirara]].
** In Requiem of the Abyss - Cyrus and [[spoiler:Faye]], Klavios and [[spoiler: Serenade]], Ciel and Vahn.
* TheBeautifulElite: Mainly, the Leingolds.
* BigBad: Oswald in Realm of Thanos and Thanos in Requiem of the Abyss.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: The de'Renquolds.
* {{Bishounen}}: The entire male cast, supposedly. It's kind of hard to tell with the art style.
* BlindIdiotTranslation: With the distinction of not having been translated in the first place.
--> '''Oswald''': Don't expect you really are going to come.
--> '''Vestoria''': Actually, your plan ruined.
--> '''Oswald''': Sure, plan A did. But plan B did not.
* CainAndAbel: Oswald and Thanos, to some extent.
* {{Curse}}: Seems to be somewhat of a trend in the series, with Ian in the first game and Volg in the second one.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Almost all characters have this. More notably are Leon, Thanos, Cain and Volg.
* EverybodyLives: The {{canon}} endings of all games are like this. At least, until now...
* ElementalAbsorption: People with the Null ability can do this - Valen, Cain, Thanos and Lenarche.
* EvilMinions: Cain to Oswald in Realm of Thanos and Shea (as well as several other demons who didn't matter as much) to Thanos in Requiem of the Abyss.
* EvilLaugh: Oswald and Thanos have their moments. [[spoiler: [[HeelFaceTurn Had]], at least.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: Many characters do this. Oswald's was one the most [[TearJerker Tear Jerking]]... until [[spoiler: [[UnexplainedRecovery he gets better]] after all.]]
* FantasticFruitsAndVegetables: To the Fantasia characters, tropical fruits from our world are this. Oswald loves pineapple, Cain loves mango, and WordOfGod had confirmed that Shea loves durian and Thanos loves guava. Also, Gil, Raven and Zephyr like vegetables.
* FinalBattle: All games seem to have one.
* {{Immortality}}: The Leingolds are probably the only immortals left now that Vestoria and Aldius are gone.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: The immortals stop growing at around 19 years old.
* ImmortalImmaturity: The Leingolds, despite being hundreds to thousands of years old, act only about as old as they look.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Cain and Ian both say it to Valen and Cheryl respectively.
* LoveInterests: Do I even ''need'' to explain?
* LuminescentBlush
* {{Melodrama}}: Though it's up to the player to decide whether it's actually done well or not.
* MultipleEndings: Naturally.
* NonstandardGameOver: Most bad endings, especially those where you pick a wrong choice during a fight in [=RotA=] and get killed by the enemy almost immediately.
* NotQuiteDead: No matter what ending you get, Oswald never truly dies in [=RoT.=] Similarly in [=RotA=], Thanos never truly dies either.
* OffModel: The way the characters are drawn leaves something to be desired.
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler: Oswald and Cheryl, Cain and Valen, Thanos and Lenarche.]]
* OnlyOneFemaleMold: Aside from the fairy in the second game, all the women have the exact same body type. To be fair, though, ''so do all the men'' (excepting Cyrus, of course).
* OnlySixFaces
* PettingZooPeople: All of the Nomads have [[LittleBitBeastly little furry ears.]]
* RayGun: The Rune Guns in the series are not used as actual guns, but guns used to amplify the user's magic. Thus, mages usually use them.
* RedOniBlueOni: Oswald and Thanos.
* {{Reincarnation}}: Demons are born from the deep desire to accomplish something they couldn't when they were human. Until they can fulfull this goal, they are endlessly reborn.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: A side-effect of the writer not being a native English-speaker (probably).
* {{Shojo}}
* ShoutOut: The games contain shout-outs to ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' and other [[EasternRPG JRPGs]]:
** Zephyr's mask looks almost identical to [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Sync's]].
** "Leingold" looks a lot like [[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime "Leingod"]].
*** And Albel from the third ''Fantasia'' game shares a name with another Star Ocean character
** Prince [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Zanarkand]], you say?
** [[Franchise/CodeGeass Euphemia?]] With the nickname "Euphie?"
** Fir looks a lot like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Serah]], pink-haired side-ponytail and all.
** The key icon from the first game looks a lot like a [[KingdomHearts Keyblade]].
*** And Axel's {{Catchphrase}} gets quoted by Oswald.
* SparklingStreamOfTears: Cheryl, Valen and Cyrus go through this.
* TimeSkip: 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.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: 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.
* TragicVillain: All villains are, to some extent.
* YearInsideHourOutside: Time in Fantasia passes a lot more slowly than in the real world. [[spoiler:While it has been 250 years since Cheryl has come to Fantasia, her ex-crush's son only has 16 years.]]
* VisualNovel: Although Fantasia [=MoGF=] will actually be a Visual Novel/RPG hybrid.
** Also one of the few UsefulNotes/RenPy visual novels to have a sequel, much less a trilogy.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: In Fantasia, it's completely normal to have humanly impossible hair colors. Such shades include: Blue, green, purple, white, red and pink.
* WhiteAndGreyMorality: The villains are never complety evil. Heck, even the [[spoiler:main LoveInterest in the first game starts out as one.]]

[[folder: Fantasia: Realm of Thanos]]
* AccidentalKiss: [[spoiler: On Oswald's path, Oswald]] and Cheryl's FirstKiss is done this way, [[SacredFirstKiss to her dismay]].
* BackFromTheDead: If you are on the canon path, [[spoiler: Oswald.]]
* BigShutUp: Cheryl does this in the "OMG!WTF?" ending.
* BloodFromTheMouth: Oswald's defeated CG.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: If you're not on his path, at some point Oswald will control Leon or Gil to try to kill Cheryl. Of course, you can prevent that with the PowerOfLove.
* CrashIntoHello: Happens at the very beginning of the game, when The White Lady bumps into Cheryl in the middle of the street. Though that instance seems to be [[CallToAdventure intentional.]]
** Another instance happens a little bit later in the game, when Cheryl runs face-fist into Leon. He is [[HairTriggerTemper not pleased.]]
* DeusExMachina: The [[spoiler:Blue Orb]]. ''Or is it?''
* DeathIsCheap: In the canon ending, [[spoiler: Oswald fades away after Cheryl manages to destroy the Realm, because it has a connection to him. One year later, He had an UnexplainedRecovery.]]
* GodCouple: Vestoria and Aldius before the game starts.
* HumanSacrifice: The curse on [[spoiler: Ian's]] village in ROT requires one to be lifted.
* ICantBelieveImSayingThis: Oswald when he consoles Cheryl at the end of the game.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Cheryl is eager to go to Fantasia once The White Lady tells her about it. She needs very little convincing.
* LampshadeHanging: [[DeadpanSnarker Oswald]] hangs a lot of lampshades in his route. Given [[ClicheStorm the nature]] of these games (especially the first one), the sudden self-awareness is a bit out-of-place.
* [[spoiler:[[LastGirlWins Last Boy Wins]]: Oswald is the last potential love interest Cheryl meets, and also the one she eventually marries in the canon ending.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: In the Ultimate Dark Ending, [[spoiler: Cheryl [[MurderTheHypotenuse kills Vestoria]] and takes over the world together with Oswald.]]
** Also, the reason Oswald [[spoiler: went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and subsequentially got [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]] was because Vestoria tricked him into believing she loved him.]]
* LovePotion: 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 [[MarryThemAll Harem Ending]].
* MurderTheHypotenuse: Again in the Ultimate Dark Ending, [[spoiler: Cheryl kills Vestoria so that she is the only one who can have Oswald.]]
* NaiveNewcomer: 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.
* OpeningMonologue: You get one from Cheryl right at the beggining of the game.
* OppositesAttract: Oswald and Cheryl.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Leon and Cheryl.
* SecondLove: Cheryl is [[spoiler:Oswald's]], the first being his unrequited love for [[spoiler:Vestoria]].
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: If Cheryl decides to go to the Starry Night Festival with Gil, he insists this to everyone he meets. Calmly.
* SummoningRitual: Oswald trying to get his powers back.
* ThePowerOfLove: A recurrent theme through the game. It's Cheryl's only weapon against Oswald.
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: Invoked. Oswald jumps on his bed, breaks it, and insists that he sleeps Cheryl's.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Subverted. In the Ultimate Dark Ending, Cheryl ''accepts'' it and the two of them TakeOverTheWorld.

[[folder:Fantasia: Requiem of the Abyss]]
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: Valen to Cain on his path.
-->'''Valen:''' I LOVE YOU, DAMMIT!!!
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Cain and Valen spend most of their time insulting each other. Cue "awwww" when he says that he loves her (on his path at least).
** On a less romantic note, Oswald and Valen as well. Stern daddy admits he cares about daughter's safety.
* BigFancyHouse: The Leingold manor.
* BodyguardCrush: Arguably, Cain and Valen on his path.
* BoyMeetsGirl: Valen and [[spoiler: 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.
* ChekhovsGun: The Blue Orb.
* CurseIsFoiledAgain: Valen and the others are eventually able to keep [[spoiler:Volg]] from [[SpontaneousHumanCombustion A Sploding]].
* DaddysGirl: Cain constantly calls Valen this, as Oswald is quite... [[OverProtectiveDad 'possessive']] of her.
* DealWithTheDevil: Valen can choose to do this with Shea in hopes of being able to live with Cain forever. It doesn't end too well, given that Shea is working for Thanos.
* DramaticWind: When Valen casts the Requiem of the Abyss spell in the FinalBattle, her hair literally floats in the wind.
* [[spoiler: DeadPersonImpersonation: About halfway through the game, Thanos disguises himself as Vestoria after killing her, just to screw with Valen's head.]]
* [[spoiler: DrivenToSuicide: In Cain's Bad Ending II, Valen can't forgive herself after killing Cain with her own hands and throws herself into a pit of boiling lava.]]
* DuelToTheDeath: Cain vs Shea.
* EasilyForgiven: In the {{canon}} ending, [[spoiler: Thanos. Granted, if Valen and friends hadn't forgiven him, he would have caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, but still...]]
* EpiphanicPrison: Thanos seems to have locked himself into one. Oops.
* FightingFromTheInside: When Oswald and Thanos share a body, with Thanos in control, you know this happens.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Volg sacrifices his life in [=RotA=] to get rid of the hellraiser. Don't worry, He gets an UnexplainedRecovery in the True Ending.]]
** [[spoiler: Faye's TakingTheBullet as well.]]
* HumanSacrifice: [[spoiler: Volg]]'s curse requires one to be lifted.[[spoiler: Who ends up being the sacrifice varies from path to path. It can be Volg himself, Shea or Volg and Cyrus' mother, Anna.]]
* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Valen [[DiscussedTrope discusses]] this trope once when talking to Shea.
-->'''Valen:''' If I kill you, won't I be just like Thanos?
* IllPretendIDidntHearThat: Raven to Volg when he utters something stupid. Like always.
* LastRequest: [[spoiler: Shea's]] last request to Valen before he dies was for her to [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming give him]] [[TearJerker one last smile.]]
* ParentsInDistress: Thanos tells Valen that Oswald and Cheryl are at his mercy. Have fun, little niece.
* SlapSlapKiss: Cain and Valen's relationship is quite like this, culminating in a BigDamnKiss when Valen finally realises she's in love with Cain.
* ShutUpKiss: Cain and Valen's first kiss.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Cain sees Valen again.
* TakingTheBullet: [[spoiler: Faye]] in Cyrus' path.
* TearfulSmile: Valen's final smile to [[spoiler: Shea]] before he dies.
* ThanatosGambit: Thanos pulls this in most of [=RotA's=] good or best endings that are not Cain's. It even sounds like his name.
* [[spoiler: TogetherInDeath: Cain's Good Ending. Yes, the ''good'' ending. It MakesSenseInContext.]]
* TrueCompanions: By the end of the game, the main cast has grown very attached to each other;

[[folder: Fantasia: Memento of Grand Finale]]
* ArchEnemy: Nero and Albel, Forte and Shea.
** [[YaoiFangirl Zephyr]], on the other hand, [[ShipTease enjoys thinking]] of these two pairs as FoeYay.
* ArrangedMarriage: Helberg loves finding fiancées for his son, Zephyr, but nobody can possibly make him do something he doesn't want to.
* BattleCouple: Lenarche and whichever guy whose path she is on.
* BattleCry: Every party member has one when executing a co-op attack.
-->'''Lenarche:''' Here we gooo!
-->'''Zephyr:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Heh, piece of cake.]]
-->'''Shea:''' Oops, did it on purpose!
-->'''Alviss:''' [[NiceGuy I'll do my best!]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: When Alviss brings you into a battle tutorial.
* CantLiveWithThemCantLiveWithoutThem: Zephyr and Lenarche.
* CooldownHug: One of the [[http://azurextwilight-rllz.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2s59ng coloured sketches]] in the Creator's Deviantart Account shows Len doing this to Thanos.
* DuctTapeForEverything: An old {{Fanon}} gag that [[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Furudo Erika]] had [[http://i27.tinypic.com/fc87kh.png used a duct tape seal on Helberg Vanguardion's door]], and thus nobody but he himself could have stolen the documents (though {{Canon}} has heavily hinted that Thanos was the culprit... And then an update screenshot by the creator reveals that [[MindScrew it was not Thanos, but Helberg's son Zephyr who had stolen them]]). This is caused by the fact that the fandom has more ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' fans than you think.
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Zephy~"
* FacelessMasses: Zephyr's masses of fangirls.
* {{Fangirl}}: Zephyr has tons of them. And he [[IJustWantToBeNormal isn't happy with it]].
* FestivalEpisode: WordOfGod has stated that the third game will have several festivals for interacting with the boys.
* FeudingFamilies: The Tribes and the de'Renquolds.
* GirlPosse: The fangirls are arguably this.
* GrandFinale: It was ''supposed'' to be this, but WordOfGod has stated [[http://fantasiagames.bestfreeforum.us/t571-the-future-of-fantasia-games this will not be the last Fantasia game.]]
* ImplausibleDeniability: Shea claims to [[BlatantLies just have felt admiration for Valen.]]
* InstantFanclub: Marissa Gricelle's "little sisters".
* KubrickStare: Thanos' eyes are shown doing this on the main menu.

* LoveAtFirstSight: Lenarche sees Oswald in a dream and starts crushing on him. [[spoiler: Too bad he's HappilyMarried.]]
* OneHeadTaller: Nero is almost 40 cm taller than his soon-to-be girlfriend, Feysa.
* {{Rival}}: Forte and Shea, Nero and Albel.
* SchoolForScheming: The Pacifist Alliance Organization will probably turn out to be so, if you take Thanos' suspicions into consideration.
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Marissa and Marine, with Marissa being the Beautiful Sister while Marine being the Smart Sister.
* ThePianoPlayer: 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. [[spoiler: The piano player's identity is not revealed in the demo, but everyone already believes him to be Zephyr.]]
** [[spoiler: [[http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?p=158375#p158375 Now confirmed to be Zephyr.]]]]
* TwiceShy: Forte and Marine.
* YouAllMeetInAnInn: Lenarche's first meeting with [[spoiler:Thanos]] was a [[ShipTease secret rendezvous]] in a tavern.
