Video Game / Dragon View

Go To
Dragon View (also known as Drakkhen II or Super Drakkhen) is a video game developed and published by Kemco for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in November 1994. Although it bears little resemblance to its predecessor, Drakkhen, it utilizes the same pseudo-3D overworld system for which the series is most famous. Other features of Dragon View are its side-view Action RPG hybrid gameplay (used when exploring more detailed areas such as towns and dungeons), its well-translated second-person storyline, and its emphasis on player-driven "free" exploration.

An in-depth Let's Play was done by "My Name Is Kaz". Others include ones done by Lantis02, Sir Eldric IV and by Gunarm Dyne.

Dragon View provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Aerith and Bob: Fairly common names like Alex, Katarina, Sarah, and... Giza all appear in the game.
  • Bullfight Boss: Piercia and the Efreet do screen-clearing charges in retaliation for being damaged.
  • Early-Bird Boss: Piercia, with her habit of ramming you almost every time you hit her. You're going to need good reflexes.
  • Improbable Weapon: The Hyuza, which resembles the drunken love child of a boomerang and an axe. Somehow, it both works and is actually effective.
  • Mirror Match: The first enemies in the Sektra Temple are water clones of Alex. Thankfully, they only use the sword.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Of sorts. When you visit one of the mages that can power up your rings, their incantation for doing so is "Azig taefed!!!" or "Defeat Giza"
  • Shout-Out: To Airplane! of all things:
    As Alex finishes a training regimen
    Damme: Since you're in such a good mood... How 'bout 30,000 more!
    Alex: Your jaw drops, and your smile fades, "Surely you jest!"
    Damme: Ha ha... gotcha! And don't call me 'Shirley'!


How well does it match the trope?
