The Battle Raper (バトルレイパー?) series is a set of controversial erotic video games developed by Illusion Soft (developers of RapeLay) between 2002 and 2005. The games in this series are 3D fighting games with gameplay similar to Soul Calibur. In Battle Raper melee, when the player attacks a female character enough, her clothes fall off. The first title gained notoriety for its simulation of forced sex; this was removed from the follow-up. Battle Raper games have a single-player story mode, a multiplayer mode, and an Extras mode which is unlocked after finishing the storyline. Each game in the series uses a fire serpent as a part of its logo.

Battle Raper II (バトルレイパー2) is the second game in the series, released in 2005 for the PC.

Gameplay[edit]

In Battle Raper II, players are able to knock female opponents' clothing off. In combat every character has unlimited guard, a move that can not be blocked, and a super move.

As opposed to the first Battle Raper, the sequel actually does not feature rape. Once a fight against a female character is won, the game enters a special mode where the unconscious woman lies on the ground in front of the player who now has to heal her wounds. The Replay mode allows the player to have (consensual) sex with any female characters that finished the storyline with.

The game also features a variety of alternative clothing items and weapons for all the characters that can be used to edit their models.

Story[edit]

The story line has no relations to the original Battle Raper and is set in the year "20XX". In the Story mode the player gets to choose one of the female characters to accompany the player's character, a young treasure hunter swordsman named Yuuki, while he travels the island, fighting undead monsters and other female characters (his competitors), and to have sex with her in the end.

Characters[edit]

  • Elferris Kyougoku: Elferris is a blond girl who is armed with a weapon called 'Zubra' which is similar to a rapier and her element is thunder. Like, Yayoi, she is also a member of the Eisen Kreuz guild, and is her superior. Elferris, in contrast to Yayoi, is regal and dignified, and would resort to using her sword only as a last resort.
  • Sara Kamishiro: Sara is Yura's older sister. She is a member of the Arcana clan who specializes in computers. She is armed with a Dread Scythe and her element is vorpal. Sara is sent in with her sister, Yura, to search for the Divine Element.
  • Setsuna Yagami: Setsuna is a ninja of the Osei clan. She is armed with the Sun and Moon daggers and uses the elements of Light and Darkness. In the Story mode, from the conversations, it is clear that Yuuki knows Setsuna and that she has not forgotten him.
  • Yayoi Mibu: Yayoi is a dark-haired young woman who is a member of the Eisen Kreuz guild. She is armed with a Holy Dragon Blade and her element is wind. She is a very hot-tempered, prone to letting her sword do the talking. Despite her personality, she is fond of cute things like Eliza.
  • Yura Kamishiro: Yura is a girl with orange hair in the Arcana clan which finds artifacts. She uses two Eagle Claws and holds an artifact which allows her to use the element of fire. Yura is more rambunctious and outgoing than her bespectacled older sister.
  • Yuuki Kukami: Yuuki is the game's main character and the only male character. He is armed with a sword and a gauntlet called the Soul Eater. He is followed by a succubus familiar named Eliza, who turns into the sword.

Add-ons[edit]

Sexy Raper
Sexy Raper is an add-on to Battle Raper II which allows to take pictures of all the female characters in poses with different outfits and backgrounds.
CapRaper
CapRaper is another add-on that adds three additional characters from previous Illusion titles. The characters are Mayu Huzikawa (from Biko 3), Bael Altarus, and Esk Andersson (from Des Blood 4). The new characters cannot be used in story mode.

Reception[edit]

The first game in the series gained notoriety because of its forced sex elements. Battle Raper was included on the GamesRadar's lists of the 7 "most evil" video games in 2007 ("At first, seeing female brawlers beat each others’ clothes off is pretty amusing in a twisted way, but the streaming tears that come when the raping begins quickly kills any quirky humor or titillation to be had with this sick hentai title") and the 12 weirdest fighting games in 2008 ("Humiliation, rape and degradation are wrapped up in one package of shame, that’s not only a shitty fighting game, but a sick idea as well").[1][2] Reviewing the game's sequel in for Something Awful in 2005, Parsons tongue-in-cheek wrote: "I want to say that I am glad they took the rape out of Battle Raper 2, but sadly, I just can't. If you're going to make a game with rape in the title there needs to be rape in it."[3] In 2010, Machinima.com ranked it as the fourth most offensive game ever.[4]

The first Battle Raper was also credited to be one of the Japanese adult games that not only resulted in "a widely publicised outcry in the West – which only started years after the fact" but also led to the establishment of the Ethics Organization of Computer Software in 2009.[5]
