Description official descriptions

Panzer Dragoon is set in a distant oppressive future. The Dark Dragon needs to be destroyed, and you, Keil Fluge, are aboard a dragon and armed with a powerful weapon to do so.

In this shooter, you ride an armored dragon on a predefined path with 360º of freedom (you can rotate and zoom in and out). This path takes you through an aquatic setting, through a tunnel and over a forest, and into combat with giant worms, wasps and flies. Each level ends with a boss. In a idea influenced by the film Blade Runner, cutscenes use a fusion language combining elements of German, Latin and Japanese.


  • パンツァードラグーン - Japanese spelling

As with many successful video game series, an animé OAV adaptation was released in 1996 based on the universe and characters of Panzer Dragoon.

Artistic influence

One of the game's major artistic influences was the French comic book series Arzach by Moebius. He even contributed in the creative process with original artwork.
