Seal Online is a free-to-play MMORPG from South Korea developed by Grigon Entertainment (Aka known as Garam and Baram), which also developed FusionFall, and is mostly published by YNK Interactive (Now known as PLAYWITH Interactive). It is based on the 2000 RPG PC game Seal: Travelers of Destiny. It was released way back in 2003 for Korea, then in other regions. It was originally going to be released in the United States in 2005 but the website was shut down without notice. Two years later, it came back to the USA successfully. When ownership of Seal Online was transferred to YNK in 2007, the game continued running even when Grigon went out of business in 2009, to where it runs today in most regions. The game got rebooted on 2010 to clear every user data for the Eternal Destiny update. The game was once again in a major update on June 2013, as Blades of Destiny. You can download the game here.

The name of the game probably comes from a wizardry performed in the game's backstory used against the Balies. The game is a typical point-and-click MMORPG game set in the land of Shiltz featuring eight classes in which players must defeat the Bales, monsters created by Balie's magic. The game has a combo system usually used by melee classes by using the A, S, and D keys.

In August 2017, a new mobile game called Seal New World was announced.


This game provides examples of:

  • Anachronism Stew: The game is in a medieval fantasy setting, but some enemies bear objects beyond that period like machine guns, electric guitars, drills, and more.
  • An Adventurer Is You
  • Baleful Polymorph: Literally, since Eternal Destiny, the player can turn into a bale by potion.
  • Big Bad: Balie started the existence of all monsters in the game.
  • "Blind Idiot" Translation: There are several translation mistakes in the dialogue.
  • Cool Pet: The game has an extensive pet system that includes a dragon, a monarch chicken, and even a Valkyrie.
  • Critical Hit: Possible to perform it and if the monster does it, it will speak.
  • Cute Is Evil: About everything cutesy-looking in this game (Except pets and most NPCs) is at least an enemy.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: The bale Mr. Catfish wears lipstick and slippers despite being male.
  • Advertisement:
  • Enemy Chatter: Bales can talk, like when they perform a critical hit.
  • Exorcist Head: A non-horror example. The White Rose pet and its recolored variant can do this, while spinning its head.
  • Great Offscreen War: The war between the Elims and Balies that lasted for 7,000 days in the Genesis of Shiltz.
  • Killer Rabbit: The Rascal Rabbit is a literal one but is not that dangerous when the player is at least around in its level.
  • Guide Dang It!: The main quests can be difficult to progress without a guide.
  • Level Grinding: The game has this like other MMORPG's.
  • Lighter and Softer: It looks a lot more lighter than the game it is based, considering that Travelers of Destiny has a tragic story, but it still has its darker moments.
  • Mama Bear: Literally. Mama Bears are Bales.
  • Mascot Mook: Rascal Rabbits are the game's mascot.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: There are pigs with bat wings.
  • Not Using the "Z" Word: The monsters in Shiltz are called Bales, not using the word monster.
  • Organ Drops: You can get organs from certain enemies like bear galls, eyeballs and teeth.
  • Our Monsters Are Different: The monsters are called Bales, which is named after the in-game lore deity Sakiel Balie.
  • Palette Swap: Several enemies and since Eternal Destiny, all pets have recolored counterparts, with different stat distributions.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Many pets are like this.
  • Scenery Porn: The environment is comprised of colorful cartoony scenery.
  • Shout-Out: The Bat Guy mask is a direct reference to a certain well-known superhero.
  • Something About a Rose: There are usable roses as weapons. Also the consumable roses and the rose pet in some extent.
  • Sunny Sunflower Disposition: The sunflower pets and their palette swaps.
  • 20 Bear Asses: Repeatable quests are like this. They are usually for lower level players.
  • Video Game Cruelty Potential: Should the player not feed or play their pet, it will die or run away.
  • Wolverine Claws: The accessory Murderer's Claws, which looks like that the player gains bloody claws if equipped.
