• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Chaos wars 350 6913.jpg

A Massive Multiplayer Crossover Strategy RPG featuring characters from designers Idea Factory, Aruze, Red Entertainment and Atlus. It has an excellent combat system and features appearances by many interesting and beloved characters, but all anyone ever talks about is the ridiculously poor localization.

Should not be confused with Chaos War, a 2011 Marvel Comics Crisis Crossover.

There are lots of characters to choose from, and they all range from a variety of games:

  • Idea Factory:
    • Spectral Tower[1]
    • Spectral Force
    • Steady × Study
    • Rebirth Moon (also the game whose engine was modified for use in this game)
    • Mars of Destruction
  • Aruze:
  • Atlus:
  • Red Entertainment:
  • ASCII Media Works:
    • Dengeki Playstation (a gaming magazine)

The story opens with three Ordinary High School Students: the sourpuss Hyōma, the hyperactive Shizuku and the cowardly Hayatemaru. They agreed to ditch school one day to investigate a strange cave that is said to hold mystical power. The story goes that if one prays there, his/her wish will be granted. However, when they reach said cave, something bizarre happens, and they are sucked into a parallel dimension: a world called "Endia" ("the end of all worlds"). Endia is composed of a ring of islands, and oddly, has a sun that never sets. Hyōma is separated from his friends and encounters a purple-haired girl named Rin Sunroad. Rin is a "Gate Master": she can operate special terminals that allow the transport of goods and even people. She tells him that he is a "Knight" (a person who is usually pulled from another world). Hyōma finds his friends early enough and must now gather an army of fellow Knights, and take part in a race to find the Keys, which may be the vital items that allows everyone to return to their own worlds... or even new Knights to join Hyōma's and Rin's cause.

Has a Spiritual Sequel of sorts in Cross Edge, another Massive Multiplayer Crossover involving Idea Factory with a Trapped in Another World premise. Zelos and Meu appear in both games.

Tropes used in Chaos Wars include:
  1. Technically, the first Spectral game, meaning the Spectral Force series and its children series should be under it, but Genre Shift and Sequel Displacement puts Force as the face of the Neverland games.
  2. Nikoru.
