games were also released on UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch as ''Braveland Wizard'' include:

*

Trilogy''.

!!Tropes present in these games:
* ActuallyFourMooks: Much like in ''HOMM'', this trope is omnipresent on both the strategic level (a single ruffian standing in a choke point actually represents a group that also includes archers and peasants), and the tactical one, where dozens of soldiers of the same type are represented by a single sprite on the map, and you only know how many there are by looking at the number beneath it.
* AfterCombatRecovery: All your warriors who fell during the battle will be automatically healed afterwards, for a fraction of your post-battle earnings.
* AntiGrinding: The original game had a set number of enemy encounters on the map, which will never respawn. The shops do not restock either.
** ''Wizard'' added optional dungeons where the enemies would respawn, though that would only happen a set number of times.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Downplayed in the first two games, where the protagonists stayed off the frontline just like the commanders of ''HOMM 3'', and only gave orders and provided support through spellcasting. In ''Pirate'', however, Jim always fights on the frontline, although it'll still take significant level growth for him to actually match a good stack of troops in power.
* BareYourMidriff: The outfit of the female pirates in the third game.
* BlackBeadEyes: All of the human characters have their eyes drawn in this manner.
* BloodlessCarnage: The bodies of the fallen enemies will not bleed, and will instead appear somewhat faded on the tile, to signify they are no longer a threat.
* CompetitiveMultiplayer:
''Braveland Pirate'' include:

*
Trilogy'' includes an option for "duel" battles between two players, where they pick a hero they like (with the choice consisting of both the series' protagonists and the leaders of antagonist factions) and do battle with their preset armies.
* CriticalHit: Present. ''Wizard'' introduced some skills for its protagonist that raised critical hit chance for all troops under her command.
* DemBones: Skeleton enemies first appear in ''Pirate''. They are resistant to ranged attacks, but are still level 1 enemies otherwise.
* DoomedHometown: The inciting incident of the original game is the raid on protagonist's village.
* DropTheHammer: Smith enemies fight with their hammers. The description states that these hammers are "magic", but they do not actually have any special abilities.
* DualWielding: Rogue-type fighters attack with twin daggers.
* FantasyGunControl: Played straight in the first two games, but averted in ''Pirate'', which adds blackpowder rifle troops to go alongside its theme.
* {{Golem}}: Stone golems are one of the tougher enemy types. Fire Golems, who are made out of partially melted lava-like rock, are even tougher, especially as they can be reborn after death.
* GunsAkimbo: In the third game, female pirate units attack with two pistols.
* AnIcePerson: Diana, the protagonist of ''Wizard'', specializes in ice spells. All games also feature Northern Guards as elite enemies with ice-enchanted two-handed swords.
* LevelLockedLoot: ''Pirate'' gave a minimum level requirement to all of the items its commander, Jim, can wear.
* LighterAndSofter: The series both has a much more cartoony art style than ''Heroes of Might and Magic'', and is less serious in its story-telling as well.
* MissionPackSequel: ''Wizard'' and ''Pirate'' are essentially this next to ''Braveland'', as represented by.
* MoneySpider: Averted. Bandits are the only enemies that drop coins, to represent their life of plunder.
* PaletteSwap: There are several types of units that are largely identical for both the player and the enemy, and. Sometimes, it's really overt, like a normal black wolf only differing in color to Snow Wolf (and the two are present together in some encounters as well). Human archers or peasants may wear different clothing and have different facial features, but they'll hold their weapons in the same way and have exact same animations.
* PirateGirl: The third game has female pirates who fight with two pistols as one of the available troop types.
* PlantPerson: Ents make their first appearance in ''Wizard''. They can be recruited into Diana's army, but are often found as part of enemies' hosts as well.
* PlayingWithFire: Pyromancer mages are frequent latter-game enemies in the original game. In ''Wizard'', they are Diana's mid-rank ranged troops.
* RPGElements: The commander gains levels and can invest in one of two upgrades offered at every level-up. He can also be outfitted with unique melee weapons, helmets, body armors and belts.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Black wolves have solid red eyes (Snow Wolves have solid blue ones instead). Fire Golems and Wizard Ghosts also have red eyes.
* SavageWolves: Wolves are a recurring enemy type. Young Wolves are pale-grey and weak enough to get a derisive description "Can handle a sheep, but a bull is already out of reach." Black Wolves are tougher, and Snow Wolves are encountered much later on and even possess Magic Bite.
* YouNoTakeCandle: Ents in ''Wizard'' speak in this manner.
