Aoqi Legend allows players explore the constantly updated Fantasy/Science Fiction world. Partially inspired by Pokémon, players collect and use mons in strategic automatic battles in a group of five mons battling another group or one mon. The player can do quests in each world. They can also help and befriend with legendary figures in the main city.
On September 27, 2013, a related game titled Aoqi Wars was announced. It was a spin-off game with different creatures and gameplay. However, the game was not successful as Aoqi Legend and future updates of the game are abandoned.
This game provides examples of:
- Animesque: The visuals are inspired by anime.
- Anti Poop-Socking: As with online game laws in China, when a certain amount of playtime passes, the player receives less experience from enemies and quests are disabled.
- The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: Bosses typically have more health than the player's mons, and are able to use skills instantly. Either the player's team would get swept by the start or the bosses' team undo the damage the player dealt.
- Dance Battler: Xiao Pinnguo, the apple-fairy creature, is stated to be a good dancer and has dancing attack animation.
- Elvis Impersonator: Has a rare non-human example; there is crab-like creature having the recognizable hairdo.
- Five-Man Band: The player can make their own!
- Gratuitous English: Has this in exclamation. There are even mons based on the lower-case and upper-case letters of "AOQI!"
- Joke Character: Zhan 10 Zha and its pre-evolutions are among the weakest monsters in the game, but their main purpose is to be consumed for massive experience points in one feature.
- Level Grinding: It has this, but users can let their mons train in the player's home for automatic experience gaining.
- Mascot: The mascot is a cute white/blue spherical creature with a yellow V on its head. Looks familiar right?
- The Medic: Several mons can heal itself or another fellow mon as its special move.
- Mighty Glacier: The defensive-type mons. They have high defenses and health designed to tank their foes.
