Panzer Dragoon (パンツァードラグーン Pantsuā Doragūn?)[1] is a rail shooter released on the Sega Saturn in 1995, and later released on PC, PlayStation 2, and as an extra in Panzer Dragoon Orta for Xbox. It follows the story of Keil Fluge (he remains un-named in the North American version), a member of a hunting party who becomes the rider of a powerful blue dragon.

Panzer Dragoon was notable as one of the few games available at the Sega Saturn's accelerated, surprise launch. It was followed by Panzer Dragoon II Zwei, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Panzer Dragoon Orta.

One of Panzer Dragoon's major artistic influences was Moebius' (Jean Giraud) Arzach, a comic book series created by the French artist. He even contributed in the creative process of Team Andromeda's game with original artwork.
