. An Epic Fantasy is generally set either in a completely fictional world, where of course anything goes. Epic Fantasy is a very popular genre in both traditional film and animation, as well as the gaming industry.

There are some lose rules or conventions that most Epic fantasies follow. First, an Epic Fantasy is generally set either in a completely fictional world, where of course anything goes, or it is set in the common everyday world we all recog- Nize, but ODD things kep happening.

Second there is always a strong god vs evil conflict throughout the story, with the villain (evil) character being just as important as the Hero (god) character.

That being established, an Epic Fantasy estoryline can be about just about anything you can conceive of. While most Epic fantasies Revolve around magic, fairies and Dragons etc, you could just as easily tell a space Fantasy with aliens or an adventure with Steampunk robots.

In Thinking about it, y have sen quite a few ninja tales that qualify as Epic fantasies. Some of my favorites have combined the beauty of martial arts with Fantasy elements such as magical swords, amazing fighting skills that border on being magical or settings that are not quite of this world.
