Power of the Hired is a strategy RPG for the Super Famicom similar to Arc the Lad on PSX developed and published by NCS's video game division Masaya. It was released exclusively in Japan in late 1994.

The game features four player-named heroes that the player must use to fight off overwhelming waves of enemies. The characters are each able to summon two beasts to help in battle, and with the help of these beasts the player is able to tactically conquer each of the game's scenarios. Depending on the beasts summoned, the player characters' magic will change and their spell composition will differ. Several scenarios requires that the player act quickly to avoid catastrophe, such as a burning bridge the player characters are stuck on that they need to quickly vacate. Some scenarios have multiple ways to beat the scenario. Some scenarios also require you to protect other people while they are escaping from danger.
