Suzu Monogatari (鈴ものがたり) is a card battle RPG released only in Japan by Capcom in 2000 for PlayStation.


While travelling on the human realm, Suzumaru can dig and fish to find money and items, and talk with other to befriend them and make missions. Dogs and cats can join Suzumaru to help look for items. Suzumaru can collect stronger cards to win battles and progress in the story.

Battles use three types of ofuda cards to attack, Fire, Water, and Wood, which work like rock-paper-scissors: Fire beats Wood, Wood beat Water, and Water beats Fire. In case of a tie, the card with higher AP wins. Each successful attack reduces an amount of HP of the opponent equal to the used card's AP, and the battle is won when the opponent's HP is reduced to 0. The game also has support cards with special effects, such as AP modifiers.


In the kingdom of gods, there was a naughty child called Suzumaru that often caused trouble. One day, Suzumaru took seven bells that had a warning saying to not touch to play otedama, and accidentally dropped five of the bells into the human realm. The gods got angry when they discovered what happened, and Suzumaru was ordered to retrieve the five bells.
