ELF Corporation (株式会社エルフ, Kabushiki-gaisha Erufu) was an eroge studio. One of its most popular games is Dōkyūsei, a pioneering dating sim, which has had a sequel and been turned into adult OVA series. The character design of the main villains from the -saku series is the company mascot. They are also known for role-playing video games such as the Dragon Knight series and visual novel adventure games such as YU-NO. Many ELF games had been turned into adult OVA series. Three of ELF game series had even been turned into TV anime series: Elf-ban Kakyūsei, Raimuiro Senkitan and YU-NO.

Elf was founded on April 27, 1989 in Tokyo. As of 2004, the CEO is Atsushi Shimoda (下田篤). EFC, the ELF Fan Club (エルフFC), has an active membership. There is a project that aims at recreating the game engine for other platforms.[1] After 27 years, it was announced in October 2015 that the company was closing for business.[2] Some of their games were re-released by DMM Games.
