Don't worry too much about them but take it into account.

A list of cameos Rance has made in other Alicesoft titles not set on The Continent.



A Rance stuffed toy is part of the collection owned by the character Rinse. When discussing her collection with the main protagonist Sail, Rinse comments that the Rance stuffed toy is her favorite, though she does not explicitly refer to it by name.

Toushin Toshi II[]


Rance appears as a secret boss that randomly appears when opening a Dimension Door in the game's second half. When summoned, Rance will complain about being interrupted and attempt to kill Seed Cashima in retaliation. He is the second most powerful opponent that can be fought via a dimension door after Gunagan, and is capable of using his signature technique Rance Attack to cause severe damage. Interestingly, Rance's full title as a boss is given as "Brutal King Rance", suggesting that he was pulled from his dimension during the events of Kichikuou Rance, which was released a full two years after Toushin Toshi II.

Rance makes a second appearance in the item "Secret Photo 1", which shows a picture of him in the process of groping Sill Plain. Additionally, several graves placed throughout the game are inscribed with the message "Here lies Rance".



The character Ash dresses up as Rance while playing with his friends during the fifth chapter of the game. Ash refers to himself as being a "Mighty Hero" while wearing the costume.

Pastel Chime: Learning to Love[]


Rance is alluded to in the item "Secret Photo 6", which shows a picture of Lia Parapara Leazas on the floor after being hit in the face with a golden chalice. Kaito Aiba describes the photo as being a picture of "a wife being abused by her brutal husband", clearly referencing the events of Kichikuou Rance.



Rance appears in a fighting game cabinet styled after Kichikuou Rance fighting against Ragnarokarc Super Gandhi in the background of the arcade.

Alice in Kaeru nyo Land[]


Rance appears as a unit that can be recruited after Alice is raised at least five levels above Sill's. While Rance is initially hesitant to help Alice on her journey, as she is too young to be within his strike zone, he changes his mind and decides to join her after learning that she has other beautiful women traveling alongside her.



Rance's name appears among the list of adventurers that have explored the Hades Labyrinth. His title is listed as "Hero", while his status is listed as "I'm ti~ired! I'm gonna go home!"

Rance's hand appears on the fifth secret photo, which depicts him in the process of groping a young woman in a location that appears to be the bandits' hideout from Kichikuou Rance, suggesting that it took place during the period where he was leading the group.



Rance appears as a unique unit with very high stats in the Mars Invasion Force faction in the game's Free-For-All mode.


Outside of Free-For-All, a Panda with the name Rance appears as one of the six pandas guarding the Hinode region for Sanada Denpa, and a small toy in his likeness appears as a part of the set depicted in the "Gachagacha" item.

The panda Rance was notably included among the alternate versions of Rance added to Rance X as bonus character cards in its final update in response to Rance placing first in the "Males" category of the Rance X Popularity Poll.

Mamanyonyo / Widenyo[]

Rance nyo

Rance appears in both versions of the game as a unit that can be summoned by a Summon Crystal. While initially unwilling to cooperate with Nanas Alphoria's effort to explore Cross Cave, he changes his mind after realizing that Ideyon is capable of summoning women from other worlds. Kakaro Alphoria immediately detects Rance as a potential threat to him, and makes a mental note to kill him at some point. From his clothing, Rance appears to have been taken from his world during the events of Kichikuou Rance.

As a unit, Rance is one of only two characters to possess an S rank in talent, meaning he requires much less experience to level up than other units. This, alongside his otherwise very high stats, often causes him to be viewed as the most powerful unit in the game.



Main Article: Sparn

The character Sparn, while being primarily a parody of Parn, the main protagonist of Record of Lodoss War, is heavily inspired by Rance in both design and personality.

Toushin Toshi III[]


Rance makes an offscreen appearance as a competitor in the Toushin Tournament. He faces off against Hazuki Mizuhara, the central heroine of Toushin Toshi II, in the first round, but is disqualified after attempting to assault her in response to destroying her armor and exposing her breasts with his signature Rance Attack.

The armor that Rance wears throughout Sengoku Rance, referred to as the "Brutal Warrior Armor", can be purchased from the equipment shop for the protagonist Nacht Ragnard to wear. It is the most expensive armor sold at the shop and requires all previous armors to have been purchased before becoming available to buy.


An image of Rance dressed as the character Reincock with the text "Rancecock" written next to it has a chance of appearing in Nacht's thoughts while he is afflicted with the laughter status ailment. This image was previously featured among various other gag pictures in the Rance VI bonus disk.



Rance appears as the character Rance Khan, a parody of the historical warlord Kublai Khan and the leader of the Yuan dynasty that appears in the former territories of the Chun Empire after the player conquers Hawaii. He is portrayed as an inter-dimensional space pirate who travels to alternate universes through wormholes in order to obtain all of the women of the multiverse for himself. After being defeated, he will simply retreat to another dimension, leaving behind only his former subordinate and would-be mistress Gua Maral. While not a recruitable character, he is necessary to defeat in order to gain information on wormholes and obtain the game's best ending.



Rance appears on one of the Golem Master trading cards in the hand of a Hanny that is playing the game against Kathryn.

Rance's name is mentioned in a conversation between the party, QD and Arthur regarding QD's collection of stories from other worlds. Arthur reveals that many of the names he bestowed to his followers were derived from these stories, and that the people given them began to take on characteristics of the character their names originated from after acquiring them. Arthur then offers to do the same for the protagonist Asterisk and suggests the name "Rance", but is immediately refused.

The armor that Rance wears throughout Rance IX and X can be purchased from the equipment shop in Hamlet for Aster to equip. It is referred to as the "Brute's Armor" and is described as seeming familiar.

A short alternate campaign to the main story starring Rance in the place of Asterisk known as Evenicle Rance was released alongside the game as a pre-order bonus.

Evenicle 2[]


The armor that Rance wears throughout Rance IX and X appears as the second strongest piece of equipment the protagonist Alex can wear. It is referred to as the "King of the World's Costume" and is described as having once belonged to the "Legendary Brutal King".

During a visit to the Cow race track, the party cheers for a cow named "Kichikuourance" that is about to take part in a race. While the cow looks strong and fast, it is revealed to possess a terrible temper, and knocks its jockey off in a rage before so much as crossing the starting line. After the race is finished, Kichikuourance is taken away by its owner to be castrated in order to curb its aggression, prompting Alex to remark that the world of cow racing is an unforgiving place.

As with its predecessor, a short alternate campaign to the main story starring Rance in the place of Alex known as Evenicle 2 Rance was released alongside the game as a pre-order bonus.

Dohna Dohna[]

The anime series Miracle Pair Patty & Millie, which contains numerous references to the Rance Series, is implied to feature Rance as a character. A preview for the series heard near the beginning of the game's fifth chapter has the titular characters discuss having to defeat a person they admire after he begins randomly assaulting women in the shopping district, ostensibly due to being possessed by a demon: referencing Rance's interactions with the various women of the Leazas Castle Town shopping district throughout Rance 01. Later, the character Mistress uses Rance's catchphrase "Gahaha! Good!" when the protagonist Kuma reports back to her after successfully completing a gift-giving request for the first time. Kuma expresses confusion after she uses the phrase, causing her to clarify that she was quoting PattyMillie.

Beat Battle Escalation Heroines[]


Rance appears as the main antagonist of the "Rance: The Quest for Stones" campaign, where he is transported to Kannuki City alongside Sill Plain, Kentou Kanami, and Urza Pranaice. Rance and Sill are stated to have been taken from the Continent shortly after RA0015, meaning that they are from after the end of the Rance Series.

Though he is advised by Urza to stay in place while she and Kanami investigate their surroundings, Rance quickly wanders off to explore the city with Sill. The two inadvertently become separated from each other after entering a crowded train car, throwing Rance into a panic to find his missing slave.

While searching for Sill, Rance discovers an abandoned Fuman Door within a mountain cave rich in Fumantium and intimidates the surrounding Fuman into becoming his servants. Rather than use his army of fuman to assist him in locating Sill, Rance becomes distracted by hunger and orders them to ransack various stores and restaurants throughout the city's shopping district for food. His actions attract the attention of the DIE-BEAT organization, who evacuate the shopping district and send a defense squad to confront him. Rance is shocked to see Urza and Kanami, who had been cooperating with DIE-BEAT to find a means of returning to their homeworld, among the squad's numbers, but mistakenly assumes that they had been abducted by the organization's leader Tokisada Senbu and sends his fuman to attack DIE-BEAT without allowing them to explain themselves. His army is eventually defeated, forcing him to retreat back to the mountain cave to replenish its forces.

While using the fuman door to create more fuman minions, Rance miraculously manages to summon Shizuka Masou from the Continent. Rance deceives Shizuka into believing that Urza and Kanami had been abducted by DIE-BEAT and gains her support in leading his fuman in an assault on DIE-BEAT's headquarters. After realizing that DIE-BEAT has the technology to summon women from other worlds, he attempts to kill Tokisada and seize his position as leader through a hostile takeover. Before he is able to do so, he is defeated by Urza and Kanami, who transform into Beat Angels to augment their power, and has his remaining fuman subordinates destroyed by Shizuka, who learned the truth of the situation after speaking with them, forcing him to retreat yet again.

Following his second defeat, Rance returns to his mountain base and attempts to use the fuman door to acquire more allies in preparation for launching a second attack on DIE-BEAT's base, seemingly having completely forgotten his initial goal of reuniting with Sill. To his frustration, he learns that the probability of summoning a woman through a fuman door rather than a fuman is incredibly low, requiring him to amass vast quantities of fumantium to increase his chances. His efforts are further stymied when he discovers that his subordinate fuman are only able to act a certain number of times per day before running out of stamina, greatly limiting the amount of fumantium he can gain on a daily basis. These complications put his plans for a counterrattack on an indefinite hiatus, temporarily putting a stop to his status as a threat to DIE-BEAT. While waiting for the fuman door to summon new women, he spends his time exploring Kannuki City, occasionally crossing paths with his former allies and instigating additional hijinks with them.
