Fantasy Zone (ファンタジーゾーン) is a side-scrolling shoot-'em-up by Sega, originally released in 1986 for Sega System 16 arcade hardware. It is the first entry in the Fantasy Zone series, a franchise that would be supported by the company in the late 1980s but largely abandoned by the mid-1990s.

NEC Avenue published a port of the game for the PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16.


Long ago, far away in space, there existed a "Fantasy Zone" where a couragous hero called Opa-Opa (the player) fought in a valiant cause to rescue the "Fantasy Zone" from its enemies.

In the Space Year 6216, the interplanetary monetary system collapsed, causing all of the planets in the Fantasy Zone to become panic-stricken. An official inquiry made by the space guild reveals that someone is leading the Menon planet forces, using them to steal the foreign currencies of the other planets and construct a huge fortress in the Fantasy Zone with the stolen funds. To put an end to the Menon forces' ambitious plans, Opa-Opa promptly takes off for the Fantasy Zone.
