Guyferd: Operation Destroy Crown (七星闘神ガイファード クラウン壊滅作戦,   Shichisei Tōshin Gaifādo: Kuraun Kaimetsu Sakusen, lit. "Seven-Star Fighting God Guyferd: Operation Destroy Crown") is a Japan-exclusive first-person role-playing video game based on Toho and TV Tokyo's 1996 television series Guyferd. Developed by Kouyousha[1] and published by the series' primary sponsor Capcom, the game was released for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn consoles on November 19, 1998.


The game's Story Mode is divided into eight "episodes" (levels), which take place concurrently with the first eight episodes of the Guyferd TV series.

  1. Escape! The Crown Laboratory ( (だっ) (しゅつ)!クラウン (けん) (きゅう) (じょ),   Dasshutsu! Kuraun Kenkyūjo)
  2. Creeping Venom Fang ( (しの) () (どく) (),   Shinobiyoru Dokuga)
  3. The Secret of Mount Isurugi ( (いす) (るぎ) (ざん) () (みつ),   Isurugi-zan no Himitsu)
  4. Hostage Rescue Operation ( (ひと) (じち) (きゅう) (しゅつ) (さく) (せん),   Hitojichi Kyūshutsu Sakusen)
  5. Operation Battle Killer (バトルキラー計画 (オペレーション),   Batoru Kirā Operēshon)
  6. Bloodlust! The Homicidal Sound Waves ( (さっ) () (さつ) (じん) (おん) (),   Sakki! Satsujin Onpa)
  7. Operation Destroy Crown (クラウン (かい) (めつ) (さく) (せん),   Kuraun Kaimetsu Sakusen)
  8. Battle! Deathferd ( (けっ) (せん)!デスファード,   Kessen! Desufādo)


The gameplay consists of the main character, Hayami, navigating a 3-D maze and fighting Mutians and Guyborgs in "Card Battle" segments. At the beginning of each battle, the player and computer compete via rapid button presses to fill a bar first and determine which of them will be granted a stat boost. Both players have five attribute stats: Health, Attack, Defense, Speed, and Evasiveness. After this, both parties will attack either a regular attack or a heavy attack. The player has the chance to obtain Arclight explosives and use them against enemies to inflict massive damage. Enemy reactions are decided with a set reaction for each sequential action that differs based on the enemy.

As the player advances the story by navigating the mazes, they will encounter chests with stat upgrades that will increase the aforementioned stats, with the exception of evasiveness, which remains at its starting value.

Story Mode

Card Battle Mode


  • Guyferd is featured prominently on the game's cover art despite not being its main character.
  • Protagonist Koichi Hayami was first alluded to in Guyferd episode 17, warning Takeo Shiroishi of Crown's activity in an email.
    • Despite the main cast being in contact with Hayami throughout the game, which is set before episode 17, they react to his name as though they do not recognize him.
  • This game introduces three new varieties of Guyborg labeled B, C, and D. The variety seen in the Guyferd TV series is designated "A."
    • Only Guyborgs A, B, and C can be encountered naturally. A disk for Guyborg D can be discovered in the final level of Story Mode, unlocking it as a playable card in Card Battle Mode.
    • Concept art of Guyborgs B and D is included in Illustration Mode, but not of Guyborg C. Also included is art of a Guyborg in a ninja stance and wielding a katana who does not appear in the game.
  • Episode 7 presents a continuity error, as Bicross is found already in Mutian form, but does not transform in the show until a later fight with Guyferd. Footage of his transformation is even played at the level's end.
