The Nintendo 64 is infamous for having few role-playing games, especially if compared to the Super Nintendo. The major reason for this is that Square and Enix both started making games exclusively for Sony's Playstation due to its CD format. Nevertheless, there were a few RPG on the console, some that are today classics.

Hybrid Heaven is considered a role-playing game just because it uses Experience points, although it has nothing else in common with role-playing games. On the other hand, games like Mega Man 64 or The Legend of Zelda are officially not labeled RPG because they lack Experience points, although they have every other role-playing element.
