Light Crusader (ライトクルセイダー) is an RPG developed by Treasure for the Sega Mega Drive in 1995. The game has since been brought to the Wii's Virtual Console service. It stands out among other Treasure games for its more Western-style graphics.

Unusually when distributed in Australia, Light Crusader was sold in a VHS box. No "extras" were included, just a cartridge and instruction manual. It is the only game in the library to have done this.

During development Light Crusader was known as Relayer.
