* ''Sengoku'' (titled ''Sengoku Densyo'' [[note]]though "Denshou" is the more conventional romanization, "Densyo" is the romanization actually used on the title screen[[/note]] in Japan), released in 1991. The player take controls of a Japanese ninja (player 1/Canon name: Claude Yamamoto) and an American cowboy (player 2/Canon name: Jack Stone) roaming a post-apocalyptic city to defeat the forces of an evil warlord who vowed to return after being defeated 400 years previously. The main gimmicks of the games were the player character's ability to transform at will into three other characters (an armoured {{kitsune}}, a samurai, and a ninja) and the plane switching sequences - at certain point during the levels, the character would get warped to a surreal and unsettling landspace based on Japanese mythology and fight in there for a while before being beamed back to the mortal realm. It was later ported to the UsefulNotes/SegaCD and the [[{{SNES}} Super Famicom]], the latter by Creator/DataEast in a [[ReformulatedGame noticeably different form]].

!!Tropes that appear in the series
* AmericansAreCowboys: The one American character is specifically stated to be a cowboy.
* BackToBackBadasses: The western cover of the first game, pictured above.
* BareHandedBladeBlock: The first game has this as a gameplay mechanic. ButtonMash in front of the samurai enemies and the player character will eventually catch their sword and break it.
* {{Combo}}:
** Notably averted in the first two games. Enemies are pushed back after one hit and most of them take two or three hits to kill.
** Sengoku 3, on the other hand, features a deep and involved combo system.
* DefeatMeansPlayable: Two of the bosses in ''Sengoku 3'' join the protagonists after being beaten.
* HeroicDog: One of the summons in the first two games is an armored dog.
* {{Kappa}}: Appear as enemies in the first game.
* {{Kitsune}}: A nine-tailed fox woman is one of the bosses of ''Sengoku 2''.
* MonumentalDamage: The Golden Gate Bridge is ruined in the first game.
* InNameOnly: Other than being a BeatEmUp and the basic premise, ''Sengoku 3'' has nothing to do with the first two games.
* ReformulatedGame: The little-know SFC port of the original by Creator/DataEast has an overhauled ''VideoGame/FinalFight''-style combat system with throws and canned combos, and changed the transformation system so that the player character simply transform at specific points during the levels instead of being able to do so at will. The level progression is mostly the same, but the sprites and background graphics were redrawn, unlike other UsefulNotes/NeoGeo to SFC ports.
* RuleOfCool: The whole series, but in particular, ''Sengoku 2'' has horseback fighting sequences and ''World War II'' thrown into the mix. One sub-stage is a fight ''on top of'' either a B-14 or a B-29.
* ShoutOut: One of the ruined shop in the background of the 2nd level in ''Sengoku'' is named "Boutique {{VideoGame/Athena}}".
* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Sengoku 3'' is one to ''Gaia Crusaders''.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The horseback-riding segments in ''Sengoku 2''.
* UsefulNotes/WorldWarII: ''Sengoku 2'' has "194X" as one of the time periods you can go to, and one of the near-final bosses is obviously Hitler.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: In the SFC port of the first game, both player characters (named Dan and Bill) could perform a pile-driver.
