Ghosts 'n Goblins is a run and gun platformer video game series created by Tokuro Fujiwara and developed by Capcom. The first entry in the series was Ghosts 'n Goblins, released as an arcade title on September 19, 1985. The series has subsequently been released on and ported to a variety of game consoles and mobile platforms and spawned several sequels and spin-offs.

The main series consists of run and gun platformers with players controlling a knight named Arthur who must battle through hordes of the undead in order to rescue the kidnapped princess Prin-Prin (also known as Guinevere, or not named altogether depending on the game/translation) from the demon king Astaroth. Arthur's health and magic level is represented by the armor he wears, with Arthur capable of finding better armor and various weapons in treasure chests hidden throughout the game stages; even so, regardless of how powerful is the armor Arthur wears, he will lose it with a single hit. Once losing his armor, Arthur is left only wearing his boxers (an image which has become iconic for the series). In most of the main series, once completing the game the player is forced to re-play the game's stages at a harder difficulty level in order to receive the game's "true" ending. The series has gained a reputation among gamers for its high level of difficulty.

Power of the Verse

Despite his expected two-hit durability, Arthur and some characters has High 6-A attack potency/durability and Sub-Relativistic speed ratings by dodging laser beams shot by demon kings. Arthur uses many hax abilities like Holy Manipulation, TeleportationForcefield CreationExtrasensory Perception, Illusion Creation, Astral Projection, Non-Physical Interaction, Resurrection, Healing by absorbing attacks, Statistics Amplification, etc.

The verse's attack potency/power comes from scaling as seen in Gargoyle's Quest/Demon's Crest, where Firebrand set the whole of Demon Realm on fire and fought Phalanx who's death generated much power, it guarantees High 6-A power rating. He also has Sub-Relativistic speed for flying across continents at high speeds and traveling from the Demon Realm to the Human Realm.

    • The laser feat is really just supporting evidence, the main feat was scalling to Astaroth who scales to Fire Brand. The one who did the feat.
