Wild ARMs: Million Memories is the latest entry to the Wild ARMs series for the iOS and Android. Released in September 26, 2018, the story is an Adaptation Amalgamation Crossover that brings the heroes of every existing Wild ARMs game together to save Filgaia from the brink of destruction.

Michiko Naruke returns as the game's music composer.

Needs Wiki Magic Love.

This game has examples of:

  • Adaptation Deviation: Due to how the different games are meshed together, some events from the original work will drastically change. For instance, the Photosphere takes flight right before Mother has been revived.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Some characters appear much earlier than they would have in their home game. One example is Raquel who participates in the coliseum battle at the Adlehyde Fair before the demons' invasion.
    • Alexia herself appears early on as an invited guest for the festivities before vanishing after the attack.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Virginia's uncle is portrayed as more hostile to ARM wielders than he was in Wild Arms 3. Justified due to Slayheim's demise causing the population to grow fearful of ARMs in general.
  • All-Star Cast: The game boasts a roster of famous names like Takahiro Sakurai, Sanae Kobayashi, Akira Ishida, etc.
    • In Akira Ishida's case, it's more of a role reprisal since he first voiced Jet in the drama CD.
  • Ambadassador: Cecilia finds herself playing this role more often than not when visiting Meria Boule and Elysium after Adelhyde's destruction..
  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: Some of the time-limited events reward players with characters in different costumes.
  • Cool Train: The Blue Caravan serves this role well, allowing the party to go where they need to go on land.
  • Dialogue Tree: Players can decide what Rudy's responses will be during certain parts of the story.
  • The Dragon: The Prophets play this role for the Quarter Knights with Leehalt serving under Alhazad directly.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: ARMs are categorized into seven different attributes: fire, water, wind, earth, light, dark, and non-elemental.
  • Advertisement:
  • Emergency Impersonation: The party convinces Clarissa to assume Alexia's identity like in Wild ARMs XF to keep Elysium's Evil Chancellors from waging war on Adlehyde for their princess's disappearance.
  • Evolving Credits: Some segments of the opening movie change depending on how much of the story has been completed.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Rudy of all people does this complete with Evil Costume Switch and Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • Fanservice Costumes: A few of the time-limited character costumes show off more skin than necessary.
  • Fun with Acronyms: ARM stands for Awakening of Resonant Memories in this title.
  • Gambit Pileup: This trope is bound to happen with many of the villainous factions plotting their own schemes for Filgaia.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Mockingly lampshaded by Janus upon meeting Ashley for the first time.
  • How We Got Here: The prologue ends with the shocking revelation of Rudy betraying the heroes at some point.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite the heroes banding together in greater numbers, some tragedies like the attack of Adlehyde just can't be avoided.
  • Legacy Character: Unlike in previous titles, this game's iteration of Count Pegucci is a young boy rather than an older nobleman.
  • Loads and Loads of Sidequests: Being a mobile RPG, the game offers numerous side quests and time-limited ones that focus more on characters outside the main party.
  • Lost Technology: Even the ancient machines and devices are named after this trope.
  • Mythology Gag: Expect to see plenty of nods from previous games here.
    • In an attempt to use the Ark Scepter's power, the chosen mediums for the ceremony are Cecilia, Yulie, and Clarissa, three characters who had links to the Guardians in their respective games.
  • No Export for You: There are currently no plans to release this game in the West.
  • Original Generation: The game features several original characters like Brittany and her wind mouse companion Fille.
  • Random Drop: It's a gacha game, after all.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Virginia views the more experienced Rudy as something of a senior, eagerly following him to become a better drifter.
  • Support Party Member: Fourth party members are given this role during battles.
  • Tsundere: After losing to the heroes, Zed is taken aback by Ashley's kindness towards him.
  • Unlockable Content: More characters are unlocked as the story progresses with ARMs and Gears being made available via gacha roulette.
  • Villain Team-Up: Mostly played straight with the Quarter Knights and Prophets. Otherwise, the trope is mostly averted with many of the various antagonistic groups vying for power.


How well does it match the trope?
