A very blunt and honest H-game, Conquering the Queen is the story of wandering mercenary Vincent Conquer, Vince to his friends, an incredibly skilled swordsman whose only goal in life is to use his strength and wits to win power and glory for himself. Fortunately for Vince, he also possesses the second key ingredient for success: being in the right place at the right time. The land he is travelling through plays host to two warring nations, Eclipse and Katusha and he sees an opportunity to sell his services to the heavily outmatched Katushan army. While trying to figure out how to accomplish this, he overhears an attack in progress and moves to investigate.
Coincidentally, the unfortunate victim is Princess Roxana Katusha, Sana to her friends, and Vince proceeds to cut down the attacking bandits and save her from a terrible fate. While escorting her back to her home, Vince begins plotting to achieve his dreams and make the young and innocent princess his own, all in one fell swoop.
Conquering the Queen 3 is about Klaus Ainhart, a navy officer that end up getting possessed by his ancestor Captain Van Clad, a pirate that was killed 300 years ago by his own men. Klaus/Van Clad know wants revenge on the descendants of the people who killed him, including the current queen Mireille von Austria, Mireille's sister Princess Iris von Austria, the maid Cecil, and rival pirates Olivia Scarlett and Ruiri, by forcing them into sex slavery.
Troper General's Warning: The vast majority of erotic content in this game consists of scenes depicting rape. If this makes you uncomfortable, we recommend that you avoid reading this visual novel.
Conquering the Queen contains examples of
- Bread and Circuses: In endings where Vince usurps the throne of Katusha, he keeps the nobles in line with orgies. Yeah.
- Blond Guys Are Evil
- Celibate Hero: Sarah vowed never to remarry or even consider seeing other men when the old King died.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Vince on the Dark route, although at least one case is a rather sensible version of Genre Savvy.
- Easily Forgiven: Despite being raped several times in the story, Remmy never seems to resent Vince in the way that other characters do. Possibly due to Rape Is Love.
- The High Queen: Sarah's about as straight as an example as this gets, except her son, Eric (who learned nothing from his mother's example, apparently) is the actual ruler - Sarah often has to step in to save his bacon and tell him to man up.
- H-Game POV Character: Vince starts off at V but jumps to VI if playing the Dark route.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In one of the endings, Sarah offers her body to Vince in exchange for saving Katusha from her son, justifying breaking her vow of chastity by claiming it is for the good of the nation. Vince doesn't buy it and inwardly speculates that she is sexually frustrated.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Emely is hoist by hers. In almost all cases, her dependence on magic and her love of manipulation proves to be her undoing.
- Hypnotic Eyes: Vince's evil eye works this way, robbing the target of their strength and will to resist. Later on, in the Dark route, it gets upgraded to the point where he can exert more control on his targets and affect many at once.
- I Call Him "Mister Happy": In the interest of giving this entry a modicum of respectability, we shall refrain from subjecting readers to Vince's habit of calling it various combinations of meat and medieval weaponry.
- If It's You It's Okay: Vince, for Sana. For Matilda, it's Remmy or Ed. Okay it was a humiliation attempt by Vince but still.
- Informed Ability: In the case of the Eclipse girls. Rachel is one of Eclipse's premiere mages. Alfia is a highly capable and intelligent strategist. Neither of them really get to show their stuff.
- Iron Lady: Matilda.
- Non-Indicative Name: Although it's called Conquering the Queen, Sarah remains a secondary goal at best since Vince's main target is Sana. The translated title was a significant change from the initial working title, The Queen and Princess as Your Rewards, and the original Japanese title, Mashou no Nie or The Demonic General's Offering.
- Pragmatic Villainy: One of the few reasons why Vince stays out of Type VI territory for awhile is because, though he is a serial rapist in personality, power is something he craves more, and he's wise enough to suppress his carnal desire to achieve his goals if need be. He also manages to give those who know who he really is a villainous Bunny Ears Lawyer impression: Even if he is a total bastard, he so good at what he does they can't afford to turn on him.
- Princess Classic: Sana.
- Rape Is The Best Solution: Pretty much every problem Vince has, he solves by raping somebody. Need to assert power over an uncooperative female? Rape. Need to motivate soldiers for a dangerous mission? Have them rape somebody. Need to interrogate a female enemy soldier?...you get the idea.
- Royal Brat: King Eric.
- Sinister Minister: Emely serves in this role, using her magic to manipulate the highly religious populace of Eclipse and set herself up as an oracle.
- Smug Snake: Vince often describes himself wearing a shit-eating grin as his enemies rage at him impotently.
- He averts the "overconfidence" aspect of the trope, however - Vince may be an arrogant asshole, but he's a successful arrogant asshole.
- Stupid Good: Any character that could be described as good or even neutral is oblivious to Vince's plans or incapable of acting against him.
- The Dragon: Vince gets one who used to be Matilda's subordinate before he was drummed out of the army.
- The Uriah Gambit: Done to Matilda's brother Ed, and Vince does not even try to hide it - because he is trying to provoke her into doing something she will regret.
- Vetinari Job Security: Although he does not ask for much, Vince gets commissioned as an officer and ultimately makes himself so indispensable to Katusha's war strategy that he can't be easily removed, for fear that he will defect to Eclipse along with all of their secrets.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Vince is well aware of this trope and always tries to make sure to invoke it whenever possible.
- Villain Protagonist: Vince.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Roxana thinks of Vince as a Prince Charming and seems to think she's engaged in some sort of Courtly Love with him. While some endings are more or less cruel to her (the Dark route being particularly harsh), if you've read all the entries before this you can probably guess she's very, very wrong no matter what ending.
