Zanma Chouougi Valhollian (斬魔超奥義ヴァルハリアン) is a 1998 strategy RPG by Datt Japan for the Sega Saturn. It was only released in Japan.


This game is a simulation RPG such as Shining Force and there are 14+α scenarios. Characteristic points are the extremely large number of enemies and combination attacks. These make this game a highly strategic game. On the other hand, the difficulty level is quite high in the early stages when the number of allies is small.

A combination attack is a system in which two people attack the enemy at the same time, and the attack power of the person who cooperates with the attacker is added. Attacks and defenses have attributes, and the basis of this game is to carry out combination attacks in a way that the enemy's defense power is weak.
