Tomb Raider (stylized as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider from 2001-2007) is a video game franchise that follows the adventures and exploits of Lara Croft, a world-renowned archaeologist adventuress and the series' main protagonist.

The series began in 1996 with Tomb Raider. The game was an unexpected critical and commercial success, spawning numerous games (sequels and reboots), comic books, spin-offs, movie adaptations and Lara herself as a sponsor for many companies and products.

The series was noted for being a pioneer in gaming, not only for being one of the earliest examples of 3D platforming in gaming, but proved that female protagonists in media could be strong role models.
