The original game was released in 1991 for the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]], and it was the only one ever released in other countries, and with great alterations at that. Its story starts with the protagonist, Ares, being ambushed by a mage Dela Delon, who aims to avenge her evil wizard master, killed by Ares in the game's backstory. While battling, one of Dela Delon's spells breaks open the ground, sending them both into a deep labyrinth. Now, Ares must figure out a way to escape.

* GreatEscape: The goal of ''Dark Revenant''. Most human NPCs you meet throughout the game are either adventurers who came to the underground labyrinth in search of treasures or unfortunate souls who fell into it by accident (like Dela and Ares). Due to abundant number of traps and monsters in the dungeon, many have given up on escaping and are content to act as shopkeepers, selling what they found to others who still intend on going. Also, this is your initial objective in the second game as you start off thrown into a jail.

* VillainHasAPoint: Gaua, BigBad of the third game, justifies his summoning of the dark god Apeiron by stating that there has to be absolute fear in order to keep people in line. Given how villains of the previous games, Lord Bistall and King Badorrer, tried to become godlike beings in their arrogance and caused huge calamities in the process, his reasoning actually has some merit.

''Brandish'' is an ActionRPG series by Creator/{{Falcom}} notable for having a rotatable "camera" despite having entirely 2D gameplay, thus allowing the player to do things like circle strafing, hit and run attacks, and other typically-3D techniques. Only the very first game for the [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] was ever released in other countries, and with great alterations at that. An overview of the game series can be found [[http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/brandish/brandish.htm here.]]
----

!! Thus far, there have been four main games in the series:

* ''Brandish'' and ''Brandish: The Dark Revenant:'' Ares once killed a wizard, so the wizard's apprentice, Dela Delon, seeks revenge. While battling, one of Dela Delon's spells breaks open the ground, sending them both into a deep labyrinth. Now, Ares must figure out a way to escape. This game was remade for the [[UsefulNotes/PlaystationPortable PSP]] as ''Brandish: The Dark Revenant'' and retains the same rotatable camera system.
* ''Brandish 2: The Planet Buster''
* ''Brandish 3: Spirit of Balcan''
* ''Brandish 4'' and ''Brandish VT: Fata Morgana Templum:'' No relation to the previous games.
