  • 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.

Space Harrier is a 1985 Sega shooting game set in the Fantasy Zone, the part which is the land of dragons.

The player controls a man with blond hair, red jacket, blue pants and a jetpack doubling as a laser cannon, who fights alien creatures while zooming towards the horizon at blisteringly fast speeds over highly colorful landscapes.

The original arcade game was built on a version of the powerful "Super Scaler" hardware Sega had introduced in Hang-On and would use again in After Burner and Thunder Blade.

Two console sequels were produced in the late 1980s: Space Harrier 3-D, which used the Sega Master System's SegaScope 3D system, and Space Harrier II, one of the launch titles for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.

In 2000, Sega attempted a reboot with Planet Harriers, a Panzer Dragoon-like game featuring an all-new cast; this was an Arcade Game that never made it to consoles.

Tropes used in Space Harrier include:
