A Mobile Phone Game based on Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and the first Crunchyroll-backed game. This gacha game follows the story of the anime adaptation and uses it for the cutscenes and models. It also features the other stories and several new scenarios, one of them being "Grand Day" which explores the lore of the Three Great Quests. The game was localized on March 30th, 2018.

Service for the game will be terminated on February 28, 2024.

I'll ask again. Is It Wrong to Try and List Examples of a Work's Tropes?

  • Attempted Rape: Chigusa finds herself on the receiving end of one from a group of goblins soon after she and Ouka wind up in Goblin Slayer's world during the crossover campaign Dungeon and Goblins. Fortunately, Ouka was able to cut them down before they could do much damage to her clothes. Ouka also saves Amid, Noble Fencer, and Sword Maiden from this as well.
  • Bad Liar: In "A Midsummer's Love Tale", Bell knows he wouldn't get permission from Hestia to help Eina with her love curse, so he leaves a note to assure her that the job is definitely not suspicious, he's definitely not going to Melen, and he definitely won't be with a woman.
  • Bifauxnen: In the "Dungeon Whiteout" event, Ais and Riveria dress in the same "princely" outfits as Bell, Fynn, Gareth, and Bete.
  • Big Damn Heroes: During the Goblin Slayer crossover campaign Dungeon and Goblins, Amid comes to the rescue of Noble Fencer and Sword Maiden when the latter two get ambushed by a goblin horde.
  • Big "WHAT?!": During an outfit story, the 2000-year old High Elf Archer delivers one upon finding out that fellow elf, Ryu Lion, is 21 years old.
  • Clothing Damage: A couple examples occur in the Is It Wrong to Expect a Hot Spring in the Dungeon event:
    • Naza Ersuisu's outfit gets tattered in a few places while the back of her top gets ripped off.
    • Portions of Cassandra Illion's outfit rip off to show her armpit, the side of her chest, her stomach, her Underboobs, and one of her legs.
  • Combination Attack: In the Grand Day campaign, Bell and Lefiya use Concurrent Chanting to combine their ultimate abilities and fire a utterly enormous laser beam strong enough to kill the Behemoth.
  • Continuity Nod: Upon seeing Ouka cutting down a group of goblins, High Elf Archer states that he’d be more like Heavy Warrior if he had a broad sword instead of an axe.
  • Crossover:
    • The Kino's Journey crossover, Travelers and the Labyrinth Country featured Kino herself (in both three and four-star, plus the schoolgirl version from Gakuen Kino when it was added during the rerun), Shizu, and Photo, as well as Hermes (the god), dressed as Kino, as Adventurers, while Ti alongside Hestia, who was dressed as Photo, was an assist.
    • During August-September 2018, Crunchyroll mascot Crunchyroll-Hime, appeared alongside Hestia, who was dressed as her, appeared as summon-able assists in a limited time gacha event.
    • The Attack on Titan crossover, Attack on Orario, Featured Eren, Levi, and Mikasa, plus Bell and Ais, dressed in the attire of the former three, as Adventurers. It also had Armin and Titan!Eren as assists.
    • Ais Catastrophe crosses over with Date A Live, During the event in its first run, it had two sets of summon-able characters. The Date set features Tohka and a Ais(dressed as Tohka's inverse form) as Adventurers while also featuring Kotori as an assist. The Live set featured Kurumi and Origami as adventurers while Hestia, dressed as Kotori, can be summoned as an assist. Kaguya can also be earned as an assist by clearing the event story. The Fragment set issued during the rerun includes Shido and Kotori(In spirit form) as adventurers.
    • Dungeon and Goblins crosses over with Goblin Slayer. Appearing characters include Goblin Slayer himself, Priestess, Noble Fencer, High Elf Archer, Sword Maiden, and Cowgirl. Cowgirl and Heavy Warrior-dressed variants of Chigusa and Ouka respectively also appeared. Sword Maiden as well as forms of Amid and Ryu dressed as Sword Maiden and High Elf Archer respectively also appeared during part 2.
  • Culture Clash:
    • A major source of comedy and drama in the crossover stories is just how different Orario's adventurers are from the people they meet. For instance, in the Goblin Slayer crossover, the idea of +1 and +2 equipment baffles Bell, while Goblin Slayer is confused by the notion of levels, gods, and familia.
    • The plot of Winter Reverie also has this as a major source of conflict. Bell and Haruhime are horrified to learn that Talvi is being groomed to be a Human Sacrifice to stop the Swamp King, seeking to save her out of feelings of altruism and pity. Meanwhile, the person they're trying to save is angered that outsiders would try to stop her from fulfilling the role she resolved herself to play for her people, calling down all of Veltane's might on them in response.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: A major plot point in the Winter Reverie event. Takemikazuchi warns Bell and the others not to judge people from other nations by their own preconceptions, as they too have their own preconceptions of what's normal and what's right. It comes to a head when the heroes try to rescue Talvi from her fate as a sacrifice, only for Talvi herself to call them out for pitying her when she knew from the start that this was her fate. She then proceeds to call down all of Veltane on them rather than accept their attempts to help her.
  • Double Take: Goblin Slayer of all people does this when Bell tells him he can cast Firebolt up to 70 times in a row before passing out from magic overuse. Given that miracles that can be cast more than once a day are a rarity in Goblin Slayer's world, it's understandable why he'd be impressed.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: During the Ais Catastrophe campaign that crosses over with Date A Live, the fake Kaguya earns a ride from the Grim Reaper to the fiery pit after she was finally destroyed by the heroes.
  • Dream Apocalypse: In the Nightmare Academia campaign, the dream world the magic school was set in it starts to collapse when the Enchanted Dragon and the Sinister Wolf(a.k.a. Baldo) get slain. The death of the Dream Spirit(a.k.a. Tiones Walpurgis) accelerates the dream world's destruction. In this instance, everyone had to escape before it collapses completely.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: Aedes Vesta ends with Bell managing to work with his Familia and what remains of Artemis to sanctify the Holy Flame and free the dead souls trapped within.
  • Face–Heel Turn: The Aedes Vesta event reveals that the ancient hero Ephimeteus became Aethon, the antagonist of the event, due to spending millennia saving people only for them to mock and humiliate him for being unable to complete the Three Great Quests. He eventually snapped and saw the world as being filthy enough to contaminate the Holy Flame meant it should be wiped away.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Many of the event-related Bell outfits are asymmetrical sets of armor. These include Honor Succession Bell, Outlaw Rabbit Bell, and Sword Unleashed Bell.
  • Fallen Hero: Ephimeteus in the Aedes Vesta event, being the hero who inspired even Argonaut, suffered horrific losses over 3000 years and was mocked until eventually, he snapped. Now he seeks to use the contaminated flame to become the Last Hero.
  • Hell on Earth:
    • Evilus' whole goal is to turn the Lower World into a hellscape where they'd be able to practice any manner of vice and debauchery they desire. The events of Grand Tale Astraea Record detail the "darkest days" of Orario where they came within a hairs-breadth of succeeding.
    • Olympia has been this for the last 300 years due to the contaminated Primordial Flame consuming the souls of those in it, leaving them unable to die and burning continuously.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Hestia intends to make one during Aedes Vesta in order to purify the Holy Flame before it can spread out and consume the world, which will kill her much like Artemis. The entire story arc is attempting to stop her and find an alternate solution. They succeeded.
  • I Don't Like the Sound of That Place: From the Grand Day scenario, the Black Desert. It's an entire desert made solely of the ash that monsters disintegrate into. Needless to say, much of the party is rather creeped out.
  • I'll Kill You!: Bete screams this towards Kurumi Tokisaki during their second meeting in the Date A Live crossover campaign, ‘’Ais Catastrophe’’, or rather first as the encounter in the dungeon was with an impostor that also impersonated Kaguya Yamai.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The Ais Catastrophe campaign that crosses over with Date A Live not only had Shido talk with Bell about how evil Isaac Westcott is, but also introduced the fake Kaguya, the latter being pretty much one of the most vile foes Bell and company faced.
  • Loose Canon: The game-exclusive Grand Day story from this game, mostly due to its status as being game-exclusive. It's written by the original author and definitely references canon, but its place in canon isn't confirmed.
  • Mutually Assured Destruction: During the events of Astraea Record, a wounded civilian begs Astraea to use her godly powers to put an end to the war and save everyone. Astraea unfortunately refuses, and explains that even if she were to use her Arcanum and be sent back to heaven, the evil gods backing Evilus will no doubt use their own to plunge the world back into chaos. By the end, there would be nothing left of the Lower World at all.
  • No Ontological Inertia: In the Winter Reverie campaign, killing the Swamp King erases the pollution it spread across the country of Veltane.
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Bete and Kurumi have this dynamic in the Date A Live Crossover Campaign, ‘’Ais Catastrophe’’ with Bete as the rude hero and Kurumi as the polite villainess.
  • Prequel: The second and third Anniversary stories, Argonaut Story and Astraea Record, detail events that happened prior to the main story. Argonaut Story details, well, the story of Argonaut, the hero from ancient times whose story inspired Bell and countless other adventurers like him. Astraea Record follows Ryu and the Astraea Familia as they navigate the darkest time in Orario's history.
  • Promoted to Playable: In the first run of the Date A Live crossover, ‘’Ais Catastrophe’’, Kotori was merely an assist character while Shido was neither featured as an adventurer nor an assist. The rerun addressed that by making them both adventurers with Kotori being in her spirit form.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In Part 2 of the ‘’Date A Live’’ crossover campaign Ais Catastrophe Campaign', Kaguya's eyes turn Red when she's not only revealed to be an impostor but also pretty much one of the most vile foes Bell Cranel faced alongside Shido.
  • Running Gag: In "Grand Day", Ryu's claim of "They're protein-packed, or so I'm told." when talking about the Behemoth-themed snacks. When the waitresses try to pass off the unwanted snacks during some rest time later on, Ryu repeats the line, which Welf replies to with a Big "SHUT UP!".
  • Shout-Out:
  • Spell My Name With An S:
    • The title. Don't know what "Freese" is? It's another way of spelling "Phrase." As in, Realis Phrase.
    • When Tohka was added to the game during the crossover campaign ‘’Ais Catastrophe’’, her given name was spelt Touka.
  • Sure, Let's Go with That: In "The Steamy Scheme Tale", Hestia tries to leave Orario with Bell for a steamy night of relaxation with her favorite child at a newly built onsen inn. But she gets tied up by bureaucracy and protocol at the Guild desk, and in her frustration she accidentally gets a permit for Haruhime to go along with them as well. She only realizes this when Haruhime has already packed her bags to leave, and before she can explain her mistake, Bell, Haruhime, and Aisha are already praising Hestia for her thoughtfulness and generosity, embarrassing Hestia until she finally relents and lets them come with her.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: During the crossover campaign Dungeon & Goblins, Bell Cranel, alongside several characters he was with before being warped to Goblin Slayer's world, discover that killing the goblins of said world will neither make their bodies disappear nor would they leave behind a crystal. Goblin Slayer himself points out to Bell that the same goblins will not emerge from the walls as the ones in the Orario dungeon would.
  • Swamp Monster: One story event features a creature known as the Swamp King, who is a giant slimy Muck Monster mass of eyeballs and tentacles. It's stated to be the swamp itself, and fighting it is a near impossible task, unless one happens to be able to target its Achilles' Heel with potent magic designed specifically to vanquish it.
  • Temporary Online Content: Applies to certain events and characters(Including materials for certain weapons) such as:
    • Holiday event stories (such as Easter and Christmas) and crossover event stories such as Date A Live and Goblin Slayer. While the most event stories can be viewed through the Story Digest (in non-playable form), crossover stories need to be cleared first before they can be viewed.
    • Event characters and variants. While some characters(Such as Diancecht and the Undead Child version of Bell) that are obtained through events can be obtained via Event Unit Tickets, it doesn't apply to crossover characters obtained the same way(Like Kaguya Yamai and Noble Fencer) and have to be obtained while the event is running.
  • Trapped in Another World:
    • The Kino's Journey crossover campaign Travelers and the Labyrinth Country involves Kino and Hermes(The motorcycle, not the god); Photo and Sou; and Shizu, Riku and Tifana ending up in Bell's world after getting caught in a fog.
    • In the Date A Live crossover campaign, Ais Catastrophe, Shido, along with Tohka (spelled Touka in the English release), Origami, Kaguya, Kotori, and Kurumi find themselves transported from their world into Bell's through an unknown cause. Not only does the Kaguya that came with them turn out to be an impostor, she also is revealed to have been the cause. It happens again to Shido, Touka, and Origami in the Ais Engagement event, this time having Yoshino, Natsumi, Mukuro, and Nia with them instead of Kaguya, Kotori, or the main Kurumi. They still deal with a clone of Kurumi aiding the false Ais.
    • Bell and company find themselves on the receiving end of this when they end up in Goblin Slayer's world during the crossover campaign Dungeon and Goblins.
  • World of Badass: Memoria Freese follows the example from canon and goes beyond that with the inclusion of original characters such as the Faculty from the Nightmare Academia campaign and the Veltane Royal Guard from the Winter Riverie Campaign and crossover characters who have already been Badass.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: The final confrontation between Bell and Epimetheus has Bell try to beat this into him. He's been mocked as failure for 3000 years even though he did so much that he fell to despair. But Bell points out that he planted the seed for future heroes, including Argonaut and Bell himself, who were inspired by him. To cement the point, the Heroic Strike Bell uses is empowered by the very tale of Epimetheus.
  • "You!" Exclamation: During the Date A Live crossover, Bete delivers this to Kurumi Tokisaki upon their third meeting, or rather second, as the first meeting alone was with an impostor who also impersonated Kaguya Yamai.
