Super Seducer is a game created by Richard La Ruina to teach male gamers how to approach women without being creepy. The player's job is to guide Richard through various scenarios with women until he finally reaches his goal, which is typically getting a date. There are various dialogue options for the player to choose from, and whatever they choose Richard will say and act out in the current scenario. If the player chooses a good option, Richard will commend the player on their judgment. If the player chooses a kind of good option, Richard will explain how they could've done better. If the player chooses a bad option, Richard will talk about what went wrong here and what could be done better.

The game later released a sequel called Super Seducer 2, with a more diverse cast of characters and a woman around to give a female's perspective on romantic situations.


Super Seducer shows examples of:

  • But Thou Must!: Picking a wrong answer will force you to redo the scene until you pick the right choice. Sometimes, there are neutral choices that give a weaker result but still allow the game to progress, but they don't influence what happens in the next scene.
  • The Casanova: Richard is supposedly one himself in real life, and he is trying to mold the player into this as well.
  • Casanova Wannabe: The player will end up as this if they're not successful.
  • Cringe Comedy: Pick the wrong choices, and the game turns into this: players can unleash a "twerk attack" onto unsuspecting women, start bragging about their love of hunting to an animal lover, or make blatant sexual comments towards women you just met, which usually ends in a humiliating rejection (though some of them, such as bursting into a rant about how you're vegan and all meat eaters are animal murderers, count as a neutral choice rather than bad).
  • Advertisement:
  • Dialogue Tree: The gameplay is primarily made of this, but if a wrong dialogue option is chosen typically the player will have to redo the scene.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Richard gets hit with this trope twice, once when he's meeting a blonde in a cafe and again while hanging out with his friend.
  • Fanservice:
    • The title screen of both games showcases women with large breasts, with them being full in view.
    • The first game, every single time the player chooses the correct option, the gamke will show a scene with two women only in their underwear.
  • Flashback: The player gets this one when they're on a date with Alexa.
  • Groin Attack:
    • Richard can get grabbed by the balls if he harasses one girl while she's walking in the woods.
    • Some "bad choice" scenes in the second game have Richard lying on his back as he explains why the choice was wrong. Meanwhile, a Scary Black Man winds up to swing a baseball bat right at his privates (the scene thankfully cuts out just before impact).
  • Have a Nice Death: It's not quite "death", but pick the wrong choice and your character gets rejected, humiliated, and/or hit with an Armor-Piercing Slap before Richard explains why you shouldn't have done that. The second game ups this by having Richard in an unpleasant situation during his explanation (such as being held at gunpoint, used as a punching bag, or being forced to feed Grapes of Luxury to two men).
  • Moonwalk Dance: Richard can do this and use it to leave a girl who is partying in a club.
  • Obfuscating Disability: Downplayed. In the first chapter of the first game, Richard can pretend to be blind around a woman walking on a sidewalk, to no effect.
  • Office Romance:
    • The first game shows Richard trying to date his colleague in one chapter.
    • The second chapter of the second game has Richard trying to woo his secretary.
  • Pervert Revenge Mode: Women will probably respond with this trope in hand if the player ever tries to move the relationship way too quickly and creepily. Often Richard is no match for them.
  • Romantic Wingman: One chapter shows the player acting as a wingman for their friend.
  • Rule of Cool: The second game starts off with Richard arriving out of a real tank. Just because.
  • Rule of Funny: There will often be a comically outrageous answer that no sane person would ever choose but it's worth picking just to see Richard humiliate himself.
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: The player must master this in order to hook up with girls.
  • Shaking the Rump: The player can make Richard do this, with no success.
  • Take That, Critics!: The second game has various cheap shots at critics of the first game, including an option where Richard just nukes them.
  • Wolf Whistle: In the first part of the first game, Richard can do the two-note whistle to a girl who's walking nearby him on a sidewalk. Fitting for a game called Super Seducer.
  • Women Are Wiser: The second game showcases this more prominently. Whenever the player picks a bad dialogue option Richard may sarcastically try to explain why it was a good option, while a woman will talk about what went wrong.


How well does it match the trope?
