For both of these games, I think that the box art is superior to the game itself:

Also, Atlus has released some stunning cases, but this one is probably its best:

No. She is just a close relation to the sorceress from Dragon's Crown.

Also, I saw this game a the thrift store the other day, and I must admit that its box art is pretty sweet:

EDIT:

How could I forget these super awesome Genesis cases?

Some more box art...

The Mystical Ninja US boxart is clearly superior to the JPN boxart.

Yeah Brandish!

I mentioned this in another thread once, but for years (since the game's release) I thought the cover of Brandish simply contained the girl wearing a huge billowing dress while holding a large sword. It wasn't until recently that I noticed the guy on the cover. Boy did I feel dumb.

The games are pretty cool too.

Well, judging by the Brandish 2 covers she is clearly supposed to be the focus, so we won't hold it against you too harshly.
