Dragon's Lair (ドラゴンズ・レア) is a full motion video game released for numerous consoles including the Sega Mega-CD in 1993. It was revolutionary when first released in the arcades in 1983, and served as the first successful full motion video game which relies solely on quick time events.

The Sega Mega-CD version is mostly faithful to the arcade original, but suffers due to the limited colour palette of the system. A Sega Saturn version was also planned[4].
