This article is about the sub-series. For the main game franchise, see Dragon Slayer.

The Dragon Slayer (ドラゴンスレイヤー Doragon Sureiyā?) series is an online RPG published in 1984 by Falcom on the NEC PC-8801 and Fujitsu FM-7 computer systems. With its sucess, the franchise had been giving rise to a series of sequels, most of the them created by Falcom and other partner companies. Many of the early titles were released for the MSX and MSX2 computers and other early Japanese PCs and later ported to the consoles.

Although commonly referred to as a series, the Dragon Slayer name is used to designate the body of work from producer Yoshio Kiya. There is no continuity in plot or even genre, but most of the games use role playing elements and experiment with real time gameplay.

Two of the games released for the Nintendo Family Computer, Dragon Slayer IV: Drasle Family and the spin-off of Xanadu known as Faxanadu were released on the North American NES. The former was renamed Legacy of the Wizard. The second of the three games released for the Nintendo Family Computer, Romancia has never been released in North America for any platform. A fan English translation of the Famicom version of Romancia was released on April 23, 2008 by DvD Translations.

An English version of Dragon Slayer: The Legend of Heroes was released for the TurboGrafx-CD in 1991, and is usually known as simply, Dragon Slayer. Subsequent Legend of Heroes games dropped their association with the Dragon Slayer series.
