The main Thousand Arms cast

A 1998 PlayStation RPG created by Atlus and Red Entertainment, with a Dating Sim thrown in. An evil emperor wishes to use the Primordial Flame to become a god and destroy the world. Meis Triumph, Spirit Blacksmith, must journey to protect the Flame and defeat the emperor, as well as date as many ladies as possible (it actually does fit into the plot!) A hilarious game full of flirting, sexual innuendo, Lampshade Hanging, and of course some RPG adventure.

Play characters:

  • Meis Triumph: Horny Spirit Blacksmith.
  • Sodina Dawnfried: Knife-wielding White Magician Girl, main love interest out of a bushel of love interests for Meis. For some reason, she likes him back.
  • Muza Grifford: Meis's BFS carrying best friend. Freezes up around women, but manages to fall for Wyna.
  • Wyna Grapple: Stripperific pirate girl who wants to live her own life, and thus is often at odds with her father.

  • Kyleen Nelphe: Jaded and money-loving, her personality warms up due to the Power of Friendship.
  • Soushi Maharoba: Pretty samurai playboy.
  • Nelsha Stylus: Desires to be a Dress Master. A little girl, but appears much older when dressed in her possessed clothing.


  • Cliff Triump: Meis's father, typical comic Casanova. He's a head of Triumph noble family of spirit blacksmiths which rules and protects Kant town. Well, it supposed to, until Dark Acolytes attack...
  • Jyabil Dawnfried: Spirit blacksmith of Boyzby, much more skillful than Triumphs. "Older brother" of Sodina. He takes care over Meis after the attack on Kant and became his Mentor, as well as Schmidt's.
  • Grapple: father of Wyna, captain of giant pirate ship Langoud.
  • Bandiger: weird sexy looking and talking comic Arch-Enemy. Encounters you several times, but basically harmless.

  • Lavantis: rich and corrupted ruler of floating town Sharan.
  • Smoochy: weird old geezer, extra hidden character and another Dirty Old Man. Trades kisses you collected from dates for items.

Extra date girls:

  • Marion: An adorkable young Gadget Master. She controls the CoolTrain called Mounthand.
  • Palma Esterte: a priestess obsessed with cleanliness. She along with other priestesses provides the energy to Langoud.
  • Kyoka Maharoba: Soushi's sister, a shy Japanese girl who detests her brother's lecherous personality, but is blind to Meis's.
  • Metalia: mysterious woman from Myscatonia, keeper of the Holy Flame. She was a friend of Jyabil. She's over 200 years old, but ageless in fact.
