''Destrega'', spelled as ''[=DeSTREGA=]'' [[SpellMyNameWithAnS in its original Japanese release]], is an obscure 1998 fighter by {{Creator/Koei}}, the same company behind the much more known ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' franchise. Like DW, Destrega has a fantasy setting.

* ShoutOut: The two moustached EliteMooks fought near the end of story mode are red and green, much like [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros another famous pair of moustached characters]].

Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousItalian: "Strega" is Italian for '''[[ShapedLikeItself witch]]'''. Amusingly, the Italian localization left the term (and therefore both the game's title and the TitleDrop) as is.

Added DiffLines:

*** Additionally, Villa (Anjie's castle), while more modest in size, fits the description even better, with a more majestic look.
** CaveBehindTheFalls: Cave.


Added DiffLines:

** RuinsForRuinsSake: Remains. Also, Fortress, the outside of Tieme and Couger's [[LaResistance underground hideout]], mixes this with GreenHillZone.
** ShiftingSandLand: Canyon is... well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a canyon]], but it counts.
** {{Wutai}}: Shrine, the courtyard of a shrine within Couger's country.


As for the plot, it's a cross between a character-driven story mode and your typical JRPG plot. There's a DoomedHometown, an [[TheEmpire evil empire]] to take down, a [[LaResistance resistance to join]], most of the dirty work being carried out by [[TheDragon the villain's trusty minion]], and so forth. But, aside from the fact that the story mode is shared between a few of the heroes (instead of each one getting a story mode of his or her own), [[ExcusePlot not much about it stands out aside from the fact it provides a narrative context for each fighter]], [[PlayTheGameSkipTheStory and given the lack of unlockable or secret characters (aside from [[spoiler: ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors''-inspired alternate skins]]), it hardly affects the metagame at all.]]

all]].


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameSettings: There are twelve different arenas, just as many as the fighters.
** BigFancyCastle: Zauber's castle is big enough to get ''four'' arenas: Gate, Castle 1, Castle 2, and Throne.
** DoomedHometown: Hamlet, Gradd's village.
** GreenHillZone: Hills.
