Power Monger (パワーモンガー) is a strategy game conceived by Peter Molyneux at Bullfrog, and was released for the Commodore Amiga and Atari ST in 1990. It was subsequently ported to the Sega Mega Drive and Sega Mega-CD in the years which followed.

The game has a similar engine to that of Populous, though rather than render its world from an isometric perspective, Power Monger introduces primitve 3D graphics. Power Monger is also more combat-orientated.
