Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero (プリニー～オレが主人公でイイんスか?, Purinī ~ Ore ga Shujinkō de Iinsuka lit. "Prinny: Is it Okay if I'm the Main Character, dood?") is a spin-off of the Disgaea series featuring Nippon Ichi's mascot, the Prinny. It was released for the PlayStation Portable in Japan on November 20, 2008.
A Nintendo Switch port of this game and its sequel, Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!, titled Prinny 1•2: Exploded and Reloaded, was announced on March 5, 2020. The port was released on October 13, 2020. However, the digital versions of the two games are sold separately.
Someone has eaten the Demon Lord Etna's Sea Of Gehenna Pudding! Even though it may not have been the Prinnies fault, Etna wants them to create the Ultra Dessert, a Legendary Treat with no set ingredients. Assigned with a strict 10 hour time limit the Prinnies must gather all the ingredients from each stage's Boss (although you can actually take as long as you need to since the "10 Hour Time Limit" isn't set up how most players think it is).
Prinnies are rather fragile and when handled roughly they tend to explode. To prevent this Etna has given you (the Prinny) a red scarf, similar in looks to the scarf that Laharl wears. This red scarf prevents the Prinny from exploding. However, throughout the game you may choose between two difficulties. The hardest mode, called Hell's Finest, allows no room for error. If you get hit, it's a quick death. Normal mode will give you three hit points represented by three scarf icons in the lower left corner of the screen. If the Prinny gets KO'd then another member of the 1000 Member Prinny squad (represented by your 1000 lives) will grab the scarf and trek onward on the place of their fallen comrade. The levels in this game are known for their difficulty making it so a player could lose only 1 or 2 of their 1000 lives in 1 level and up to 30 lives in another.
Prinny features a number of Disgaea characters, drawn mostly from the first game.
Damien: A golden Imp. He appears as the boss of the Tutorial Levels. He uses the same basic strategy as the Imp enemies during the fight with him. He is different than most bosses since beating him won't yield an Ultra Dessert Ingredient but instead will yield one of many Orbs that can be used on the souls in the hub area to turn them into NPCs that can give you various services. The other orbs are scattered throughout Damien's tutorial levels and the last 2 locations of the game.
Gourmet Ogre: A large Green Ogre who likes to do nothing but eat. He is a boss in the Nethergrasslands. He speaks with a western accent and most of his dialogue is such phrases as "I'ma gonna eat everything!!". His design is exactly the same as the Gourmet Ogres from Makai Kingdom. Prinny receives the "Rotting Meat" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from him.
Kim and Chi: A pair of Magic Knight Twins. They appear as bosses in the High Tomb Forest however depending on the time of day you may only fight 1 of the pair or you may end up fighting both. Kim seems cheerful and talks a lot while Chi is dark and talks very little. Kim's element is Lightning while Chi's element is Fire. Prinny receives the "Used Recorder" or the "Pre-Chewed Gum" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from them.
Anise: A witch with the ability to turn into a cat who has caused nothing but trouble for Kim and Chi. She appears as a boss in the High Tomb Forest at a certain time in the day but will appear in cat form in some scenes with Kim and Chi. She seems nice but is actually psychotic. One minute she'll be sweet and flirty while the next minute she'll try and kill you with her battle axe. She is also obsessed with Overlord Laharl. Prinny receives the "Voodoo Doll" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from her.
Basil and Chervil: A pair of Bone Dragons. They appear as bosses in the Death's Watchtower. Not only are these two a "Comedy Duo" but they are also married. Basil is the Grey one and Chervil is the Gold one. Both of them speak in a British Accent. During battle, Basil fights you head on while Chervil digs underground so she can attack you from below. Prinny receives the "A Bone" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from them.
Bok Choy: The owner of a Demon Casino. Despite being a Zombie, Bok Choy is actually very intelligent. He also speaks in a stereotypical Australian Accent. He appears as a boss in the Demon Sea Aria but only if the player does that level first. He is essentially a Golden Zombie so the strategy for beating him isn't that hard to figure out.
Cardamon: A Nekomata. She appears as a boss in the Demon Sea Aria. She tends to be extremely flirty but will attack at a moments notice. She is extremely loyal to her master, Sir Sweet. She is actually a Fox Girl pretending to be a Nekomata because she heard her Sir Sweet hates foxes.
Lee Shang Long: A large and powerful Dragon. He appears as a boss in the Magma Hideout. He is being kept there as a guard pet for the Ninjas who live in the hideout. His secret file in the game reveals that his real name is Vincenzo. Lee Shang Long's design is exactly the same as the dragon that appeared in the Tera level Fire Spell in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories. Prinny receives the "Dragon Nose Hair" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from him.
Hoshikage: A Kunoichi whose names translates to Star Shadow. She appears as a boss in the Magma Hideout. She is the leader of the hideout's Ninja Clan. She is often accompanied by a Ninja Frog and treats the enormous dragon Lee Shang Long as a pet, despite its attempts to eat her. She is different in comparison to most Kunoichi as she has blond hair and dresses in a Light Blue Ninja Uniform. However, if she if fought at Midnight (5 hours left), she becomes an incredibly powerful ninja called Tsukikage (Moon Shadow). Prinny receives the "Dragon Kibble" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from her.
Moab: A random Moab, that's all. He appears as a boss in the Moab Fortress. Since he is just a regular Moab, there isn't anything special about him in particular. However, during the battle with him he rides a CX-3 Hellyes vehicle, allowing him to fly and fire lasers at the player. Prinny receives the "Choc-in-a-Box" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from him.
Morgan: A large sword wielding Moab. Leader of the Morgan Association, he finds Prinnies and sells them to people in need of slaves or servants. He is an interesting Boss since he can be found in almost any of the levels, talking to the other bosses. He's fought at Death's Watchtower during the final two hours before going to the Aged Sage Altar.
Cyberclops: A large robotic death machine. His design is similar to the Cyclops Demons from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. He acts as after-hours security for Bok Choy at the casino.
Tumeric of the Phoenix Clan: A dorky warrior. He is apparently on some sort of Grand Mission but is quite a moron and not all that powerful. He carries a sword as his weapon. His design is exactly the same as the Male warrior class from Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories onward. He usually appears at Nethergrasslands, Demon Sea Aria, or Moab Fortress depending on the time. Prinny receives the "Passion Diaper" ingredient for the Ultra Dessert from him.
Chefbot-9000: A large hulking robot owned by Spice-T. He is the only boss in the Aged Sage Alter and his boss battle is the only thing to do there. His armor makes it so you have to throw bombs at his core to stun him instead of ground pounding his head like most bosses. His design is exactly the same has the Robot Guardians from Makai Kingdom. His in-game Profile begins with the infamous "OVER NINE THOUSAND" Internet Meme but then it cuts off, saying that the person who wrote the profile could not go on with the Joke.
Darth Moab: A large Spear wielding purple Moab and leader of the Dessert Pirates. His is the only boss in the Black Dessert Desert. His name, appearance, lightning attack, and mannerisms are based off Darth Vader from the Star Wars Trilogy. As such, he makes various jokes based off of lines Darth Vader said in the movies such as "The Sauce is Weak with this one" or "I find your lack of taste disturbing". He has a helmet over his eyes in reference to how a trained Jedi doesn't need his eyes to see and fight. In his battle, he can fly and control his scythe with his mind.
In the level Sweet Palace there is no set boss as instead you fight various bosses you've met along the way throughout the level. Tumeric also appears here ready to battle the player but keeps getting knocked aside by the other bosses.
Sir Sweet: The boss of the Sweet Garden. He is a Moab with a massive sweet tooth. He dresses in a better manner than other Moabs and has with exaggerated way of speaking. He plans to create a dessert more powerful than the Ultra Dessert known only as the G-Sweet (notice the pun there?). You have to fight him twice at the end of the game, and his attacks all involve candy.
Beauty Queen Etna: Everyone's favorite red haired Demon Lord. She can only be fought in a bonus battle by having the Hero Prinny chose to revolt against her tyranny. Etna appears before the Prinny and calls him an "Ingrate" before initiating the battle. During the battle, she controls 2 Pringer X Aerial Attack Robots (which are actually knock-offs she built) while she sits on a chair thats being moved around by 4 Prinnies. If the player can destroy both of her Pringer X robots, Etna then Summons Flonne, Captain Gordon or Aramis to attack the Hero Prinny. Gordon appears with Jennifer and Thursday while Aramis appears with his pet zombies (including his legendary Super Zombie from Disgaea: Hour of Darkness).
Prinny Laharl: The reincarnation of Laharl after Disgaea: Hour of Darkness. He appears as the boss of the Material Tower. It is revealed that he ran away because of Etna's workload but not before he stole Etna's pudding, causing all the problems to begin with. During the battle with him, he'll use all of his skills from the Disgaea games, including his Meteor Impact attack (he uses a Gear Metal YAY tank or a large bomb instead of a Meteor). After the battle, Etna shows up to say she was working him so hard because she wanted him to reincarnate much more quickly and be the Overlord again. She then drags him off while wondering what she'll have Laharl do next. All throughout the story scenes, the Hero Prinny thinks that he's heard Laharl's Laugh before but can't quite put his finger on who the laugh belongs to.
Asagi: Asagi appears as the only boss to show up in the Extra Mode. All throughout the game she attempts to defeat the Hero Prinny and become the Main Character of Prinny: Can i Really Be The Hero?, failing every time to do so. After various attempts as well as trying different things, she eventually challenges the player one last time while wearing a Prinny Costume, calling herself "Pretty Prinny Asagi". Her attacks in her battles are similar to her Soul Nomad and the World Eaters attacks as they involve her using weapons from Makai Kingdom.
Tyrant Overlord Baal: After you defeat Laharl, Baal becomes the boss of Martial Tower. Having been defeated by Laharl previously, Baal now takes the form of a Prinny. However, his body's color is Dark Purple rather than Blue. His eyes are also completely blank. During the battle with him, he can ground pound the arena and summon several Grand Swords from the earth. He can also summon swords from the air to attack the player. His last attack is special as he enters into a pillar of light and summons forth his Ogre Form to do a devastatingly damaging blast.
Flonne: Flonne appears in a Downloadable Bonus fight. Her level is called Devil's Castle. When the Hero Prinny fights her, she is riding on a Pogo stick. During the battle, she hops around on her stick while trying to fall onto the player. She also has the ability to summon Prinny Kurtis and the Prism Rangers for help.
Marona: Marona appears in a Downloadable Bonus fight. Her level is her home of Phantom Isle.
Asagi (2): Asagi also appears in a Downloadable Bonus fight. Her level is Material Tower 2. In this fight, she resembles her Makai Kingdom form and even has her rifle from the game with her.
The game is a side-scrolling platformer. The player takes control of Hero Prinny and his 999 friends, and searches through a number of levels. The Prinny's basic moves are attack, jump, dash and duck. It can also perform a combination move such as attacking while jumping to use an aerial bombardment attack, or jumping after dashing to achieve an extra long jump. And after losing all 1000 prinnies, and starting a new game, you can use Prinny Raid, which rapidly depletes you prinny total (it sends prinnies randomly flying across the screen, and for every prinny that passes by, you lose one life).
Prinny is extremely vulnerable to enemy attacks, and will explode if its hit points run out. The only way to restore hit points is by increasing the Bonus Gauge and receiving the Scarf item. The player can increase the bonus gauge by stomping on enemies, which stuns them and renders them easier to defeat. The bonus gauge grants certain items when it fills completely, allowing the player to increase their point scores. The gauge will also fill completely when the player activates a checkpoint. Activating a checkpoint also allows the player to restart from that point if they die, or if the timer for the level runs out.
After finishing the tutorial level, Prinny can access a number of different levels from the central hub. The levels are presented in a set order but you can do any of the starting levels in any order you like. You begin at the start of the level and you have to get to the end of the level before time runs out. If you can get to the end, you fight a boss. Bosses are harder than the regular enemies you fight in the levels as the beat them you must ground pound them a certain number of times (shown via the Skull Tokens next the bosses life) to stun them before you can do any real damage. Beat the boss clears the level. Afterwords you are graded by your time, score and how many Prinnies you lost and are then given a grade. As you complete the levels, the 10 hour "Time Limit" will decrease by 1 hour as you as you beat the boss and come back to the hub. As time passes, the difficulty of the levels will change and the boss you fight at the end may also change. You need to do multiple runs to see every level at every time of day. Clearing the the starting levels will unlock another level which will begin a small set of levels that must be done in the order given to you for the remaining Hours left.
A number of items can be found throughout the game:
- Sweets - Found in the levels or through the bonus gauge, these add points to the player's score. Sundaes are the best as the give the most points.
- Scarf - Heals one hit point. These are hard to find but will appear through the bonus gauge.
- Gear Metal YAY Tank - This vehicle allows the Prinny to move around and shoot enemies with lasers. Pressing the Fire button causes a puff to appear but pressing and hold the fire button charges the beam and letting go will fire a massive laser blast. It is rather slow however. It is based off the Gear Metal LEX Tank from Makai Kingdom. Their names are a reference to the Metal Gear RAY and Metal Gear REX mecha from the Metal Gear Solid games.
- CX-3 Hellyes - This vehicle let's the Prinny fly around and shoot enemies. Riding this vehicle usually happens on a set automatic path so the control pad will now let you aim your laser cannon to shoot down foes. Holding the fire button allows for Rapid Fire. It is based off of the CX-1 Hellpha from Makai Kingdom. It's name is a pun on the phrase "Hell Yes!".
- Bomb - This item can be thrown to cause explosive damage
- Explosive Barrel - If a bomb is thrown at these barrels, a bigger explosion can be made.
- Magic Carpet - Use these moving platforms to help you get across gaps.
- Revive Point - Ground Pounding this lets you restart from that point. Ground Pounding the one at the end of the level revives your hit points completely and takes you to the boss.
- Ultra Dessert Ingredients - You get one of these when you defeat a boss. Very few of these actually look like they could be use to make food.
- Orbs - These orbs can be used to revive the Souls in the Hub Area and turn them into NPCs.
- Records - These records be used to listen to songs from the game. You will need the a Music Manager NPC to do so though.
- Letters - These letters appear in the Hub Area high up. The player needs to complete a jumping puzzle to get these that gets harder each time. One letter appears every time you complete a level (including the Tutorial Level and Excluding the Final Level). Collect all to unlock Asagi Mode.
- Medals - You unlock these to show you've completed a certain challenge.
