  • 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.

The Epic of Rance

Cquote1.svg
Cquote2.svg

The Rance series, by Alice Soft, is one of the oldest on-going H-game franchises and one of the oldest series of the Eastern RPG genre (released in 1989). It is notable for having one continuous story among the main series of games (with a few If Routes and Spin-Off games on the side) despite the age of the series. One of those Spin-Off games, Kichikuou Rance was released in 1996 and still is one the best selling H-Games of all time.

Unlike most Heroic Fantasy protagonists, the main goal of Rance is to screw as many hot women as physically possible with the help of his faithful slave Sill. Preferably consensually although Rance does have a loose definition of "consensual". If he needs to slay some random Big Bad or Demon Overlord and save entire countries to do so, he'll gladly do it, since the forces of evil will probably have some hot women to rape anyways. Besides, even if the man in question is a Heroic Comedic Sociopath, women love a man who saves the world once in a while. Not to mention that it makes for a more interesting story to have such a morally ambiguous protagonist.

It should be noted that despite the protagonist's dubious motivation, he actually does save and improve the lives of many of the Loads and Loads of Characters he meets along the way and is actually good for the Crap Saccharine World. In a world so full of cynicism because of sadistic Jerkass Gods and Corrupt Politicians, the idealistic (yet Ambiguious Innocent) Hedonist with a penchant for Brutal Honesty can actually be the good guy.


Games in the series:



These games provide examples of the following:

 Rance: I have beaten you, Arios. You have seen what your body is like, and your mind is in the same state: bruised, broken, bleeding, and soon to be DEAD! And the most delicious part of it, you know it was me! You watched as I tore down your world around you, and you watch as I take what little left you have: your life. But, since I'm not one for big speeches, this is the last thing you'll hear: I win. Gahahaha!
