    BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!
    
    This is all the text ripped from Wonder Boy, it had to be reformatted and
    uncompressed. Everything from enemy names, item names, signs and speech dialog
    is included.
    
    The only readable things that are not included are stored in picture-form
    such as the title screen. Also any weird symbols you see is Japanese text
    which was not translated because it did not make the final release of the
    game.
    
    The structure is roughly from the start of the game to the ending, but I left
    some comments in brackets if you want to find certain things.
    
    Press CTRL+F and enter the code to jump that section.
    
    FAQ.
    
      1. What are those weird letters under the inventory list?
         They are unused key items in the game which haven't been translated to
         english. Their translation is rapidpad and rod, they do nothing if you use
         a cheat cartridge to acquire them.
    
      2. I do not recognise some of the text here, where can I find it?
         Some text can only be read by trying to skip levels and do thing you are
         not suppose to. So when you are allowed to access certain parts of the
         game, you can no longer find this text. There does not appear to be any
         text which can't be accesed at some point in the game.
    
      3. What text is in picture form that is not included in this dump?
         Just the load up screen and main title screen, and ending screen which
         includes:

         NOTE:
         The start title text may differ considerably depending on the

         There is also Egyptian hieroglyphs in the pyramid, but they only appear to
         translate to gibberish.

    Monster World was
    once a peaceful
    region.
    
    Then, the peace was
    shattered by an
    invading army of
    monsters.
    
    A young man named
    Shion vowed to
    defeat them and
    make his land
    peaceful again.
    
    Having difficulties
    already? Give it
    another try!
    
    Welcome to Monster
    World! Once again
    this world is being
    threatened.
    
    The princess has
    been kidnapped from
    Purapril Castle.
    
    You'd better use
    caution.
    
    Here's an Elixer
    and Firestorm. Take
    them with you.
    
    Make sure you're
    ready to use magic
    at all times! What
    are you waiting
    for? Get moving!

    Welcome to Purapril
    Castle.
    
    Stay as long as you
    like.
    
    This is Purapril
    Castle!
    
    Entry is prohibited.
    
    Go away!
    
    I hear that peace
    has returned to
    Alsedo. It appears
    that the village of
    Alsedo is being
    attacked.
    
    I just told you
    that no one may
    enter the castle.
    
    Did I speak too
    fast for you?
    
    Looks like we're
    sold out of
    everything.
    
    Come on back some
    other time.
    
    Welcome to Bacchus,
    a store with a
    reputation for good
    service.
    
    We have great
    confidence in the
    products we sell.
    
    Use this item
    wisely!
    
    Oh, I'm terribly
    sorry.
    
    We seem to be out
    of stock on that
    item.
    
    Welcome to Kishera.
    
    Stand in front of
    the item you wish
    to purchase and
    look up. Thank you
    very much.
    
    Hmmm... I'm out of
    stock on that right
    now.
    
    Try back later.
    
    Welcome to
    Felissimo.
    
    We have a medicine
    for sale.
    
    Use medicines with
    care.
    
    I'm Sonia.
    
    The village is
    under attack.
    
    I don't know all
    the details, so
    you'd better see
    Eleanora.
    
    If you stand
    between the statues
    and look up, you
    can find her.
    
    I'm Queen Eleanora.
    
    The monsters come
    from a cave just
    beyond the village.
    
    Can't you help us?
    
    Take Priscilla with
    you.
    
    She may be able to
    help you.
    
    Remember, though,
    that once you set
    foot outside
    Alsedo, Priscilla
    will return to me,
    as she won't be
    able to help you
    any more. Is
    Priscilla helping
    you? You need the
    Ocarina to open the
    cave doors, but I
    lost it somewhere
    inside the cave.
    
    Keep in mind that
    when you equip a
    spear, you can't
    use a shield.
    
    Remember this when
    selecting a weapon.
    Queen Eleanora is a
    wonderful person,
    isn't she? Queen
    Eleanora was
    calling for you
    earlier.
    
    Why don't you pay
    her a visit?
    
    If it's the cave up
    ahead that you wish
    to know about, go
    ask Sonia. Our
    village is free! We
    are all very
    grateful.
    
    Good morning. Did
    you sleep well?
    
    Good luck to you on
    your journey.
    
    That was close.
    
    You shouldn't take
    chances like that!
    
    Please be more
    careful!
    
    Oh, it's the
    Ocarina!
    
    You went there to
    look for it, didn't
    you?
    
    The melody of the
    Ocarina may help to
    break the seals.
    
    Let's practice.
    Think you've got it?
    
    Play these melodies
    whenever you're in
    the cave.
    
    You've forgotten
    the melodies already?
    
    You're realy
    hopeless, you know?
    
    Let's practice them
    again. Have you got
    it now?
    
    If you forget them
    again, come on back
    and I'll help you
    out.
    
    Thanks to you, the
    village is saved.
    
    Keep the Ocarina.
    
    It might come in
    handy.
    
    Did the Ocarina
    prove useful?
    
    Thank you so much.
    
    Alsedo is once more
    a peaceful village.
    
    Go beyond the large
    tree and you'll
    reach Purapril.
    
    If you're ever in
    need of help of any
    kind, come and see
    me.
    
    I'm forever in your
    debt. How's your
    journey going?
    
    There are still a
    great many people
    in need of your help.
    
    Go now and do
    everything in your
    power to save them!
    
    Oh oh, looks like
    everything's gone.
    
    Come around again
    sometime.
    
    Buy something, will
    you?
    
    If you don't, I'll
    start breathing fire!
    
    Oh, thank you.
    
    You're rolling in
    dough,aren't you?
    
    What? I've got
    nothing to sell!
    
    I guess the shop is
    closed now...
    
    Find anything you
    like?
    
    I would create a
    sword from the Old
    Axe, but a
    necessary item to
    do so has been
    stolen from me.
    With the Fire-Urn,
    I can create a
    sword from the Old
    Axe. It will take
    some time.
    
    The Elder Dragon
    was calling for you
    a while ago so why
    don't you go and
    see him?
    
    It's not ready yet.
    Please wait just a
    little longer. It's
    finished! Here you
    go. Use its
    legendary powers
    and save Monster
    World for us!
    
    One of the children
    of my village has
    been kidnapped.
    
    I don't want to see
    anyone.
    
    Do me a favor and
    just go away.
    Please...
    
    You're the one who
    saved the child?
    
    I am eternally
    grateful to you.
    
    You're a hero.
    
    Now you should meet
    Poseidon.
    
    He is in a
    perpetual sleep at
    the bottom of the
    sea.
    
    In order to swim
    underwater, you
    need Poseidon's
    Trident.
    
    Unfortunately, the
    monsters have
    gotten their claws
    on it... You found
    the Trident!
    
    Now you're able to
    swim underwater.
    
    Go find Poseidon!
    
    Looks like I'm a
    storekeeper with
    nothing to sell!
    
    Welcome to
    Gooningle's.
    
    I may not have the
    best shop in the
    land, but there's
    not a friendlier
    store{ keeper
    around! Now that's
    a fine piece, isn't
    it?
    
    I'm terribly sorry,
    but I seem to be
    out of stock.
    Welcome to Drapnell
    sundry goods. Thank
    you. Be sure to use
    magic carefully.
    
    Rise and shine!
    
    You're wasting
    precious daylight!
    
    Get enough rest?
    Good!
    
    Good luck to you!
    
    Boy, that was a
    close call.
    
    Better keep your
    eyes open.
    
    At last you've come.
    
    I knew you would
    appear before too
    long.
    
    Now, you must
    search for the Old
    Axe hidden in Ice
    World.
    
    To get to Ice
    World, you'll need
    this special
    Bracelet.
    
    Shion takes the
    Bracelet. I already
    gave you the
    Bracelet.
    
    So, you've managed
    to get your hands
    on the Old Axe.
    
    The Blacksmith will
    give you all the
    details.
    
    This boy is my
    grandson.
    
    Take him with you,
    for I belive he can
    be of some help.
    You must hurry.
    
    Find the Old Axe
    and then return to
    me. The deciding
    battle is now at
    hand.
    
    After receiving the
    Legendary Sword
    from the
    Blacksmith, go to
    the Bell Tower at
    Purapril Castle and
    point the sword
    toward the sky.
    
    Emerge victorious
    and return safely!
    
    We're counting on
    you!
    
    I'm terribly sorry,
    but I seem to be
    out of stock.
    
    Welcome to Sundry.
    
    See anything you
    like? The
    Charmstone is...
    wait a minute!
    
    I'm not going to
    tell you that!
    
    It's been years
    since we last had a
    visitor.
    
    Your journey has
    just begun. Please
    take care.
    
    The jellyfish will
    help you on your way.
    
    Maugham Desert is a
    forbidding place.
    It is said that one
    who wears the Oasis
    Boots can cross the
    desert. It looks
    like the store over
    there is open.
    
    I know of a dwarf
    village deep in the
    woods that lie ahead.
    
    I believe it's
    called Lilypad.
    
    The well at
    Purapril Castle is
    connected to the
    sea by an
    underground
    waterway. It's only
    a rumor, but I've
    heard of a house
    that's hidden
    somewhere in town.
    
    My younger brother,
    Hotta, has been
    taken by the
    monsters.
    
    What am I going to
    do?
    
    The monsters have a
    den just beyond the
    village.
    
    Could they be
    holding Hotta there?
    
    You're the one who
    saved my brother!
    
    He wants to go with
    you.
    
    You know, he just
    may be able to help
    you.
    
    Don't go too far,
    though...
    
    My brother seems to
    have grown very
    fond of you.
    
    Please take him out
    again sometime.
    Thank you again for
    your help.
    
    Has my brother been
    able to help you at
    all?
    
    He's very good at
    finding hidden
    rooms, you know.
    
    You've done well to
    find this place,
    but I'm afraid I
    don't speak to
    anyone not holding
    a Charmstone. How
    about trading your
    Charmstone for this
    Heart?
    
    Oh, you will trade.
    How about that!
    
    Come back anytime,
    friend. No deal,
    eh? Well, come on
    back some other
    time. Oh, sorry.
    Your Heart supply
    can't get any
    larger. If you have
    two Charmstones, I
    can increase your
    magical powers. How
    about trading me
    those two
    Charmstones for
    some new magic?
    
    Oh, you will
    trade! Great!
    
    Come on by anytime
    you're in the area.
    Oh, well. Can't
    win'em all. Hope to
    see you again. Oh,
    my mistake. You
    can't handle any
    more magic. Sorry
    about that. The
    Myconid! It looks
    like the store is
    closed.
    
    Sold out? I'm not
    surprised.
    
    Guess it's time to
    head out and
    collect some more
    weapons.
    
    Hey, come on in and
    help us celebrate
    the Grand Opening
    of our shop.
    
    This is Wanderer,
    the finest weapon
    shop in the land.
    Back again, eh?
    
    Nothing but the
    best for my
    customers.
    
    I've collected
    these items on my
    many journeys. It's
    locked. I had been
    taken prisoner by
    the monsters.
    
    Please come to the
    castle hall.
    
    I'd like to thank
    you.
    
    The gate to the
    castle has been
    opened.
    
    Why don't you go on
    inside?
    
    If you have the
    Amulet, you can
    find the shrine at
    the bottom of the
    sea.
    
    Let me have your
    Ocarina and I'll
    tell you where to
    find the Amulet.
    What do you say?
    
    There's a door
    hidden amidst four
    palm trees.
    
    From there you
    should be able to
    find the Amulet.
    
    Oh, that's too bad.
    
    If you need my
    help, drop by
    again. Did you
    forget what I told
    you? OK.
    
    Find four palm
    trees, then find
    the door that's
    hidden amidst them.
    
    Good luck.
    
    If you have the
    Amulet, the shrine
    will appear right
    before your eyes.
    So you're the
    legendary hero!
    
    Now maybe my father
    will be able to get
    a decent night's
    sleep.
    
    I'm the daughter of
    Poseidon.
    
    You're here at
    last. The legendary
    hero.
    
    The Elder Dragon is
    waiting for you.
    
    Before you meet
    him, though, visit
    the Sphinx to
    increase your
    strength.
    
    There's a Pyramid
    just beyond the
    Maugham Desert.
    
    An item that will
    help you cross the
    desert is hidden
    somewhere in this
    shrine.
    
    Find it and then go
    see the Sphinx.
    
    What are you dilly-
    dallying about for?
    
    Many people await
    your help.
    
    I'm going back to
    sleep. He's already
    in a deep sleep.
    
    The princess has
    returned safely.
    
    I'm so relieved.
    
    The princess is
    waiting. Make
    yourself at home.
    The door has been
    sealed. So you've
    arrived. As you may
    have guessed, I'm
    the Sphinx. I've
    got this thing for
    quizzes, but then
    you've probably
    heard that by now.
    Tell you what I'm
    gonna do. I'm gonna
    ask you some
    questions - 5, to
    be exact. When
    you've answered
    them all correctly,
    I'm gonna send you
    into a new world.
    Are you ready?
    Here's the first
    question. Here's
    the second
    question. Here's
    the third question.
    Here's the fourth
    question. Here's
    the final question.
    This is terrible.
    You missed every
    one!. Looks like
    the end of the line
    for you... How sad.
    You only got one
    right. I can't let
    you pass... This is
    no good. You only
    got two correct.
    Come back and try
    again. Not bad, but
    not good enough.
    You got 3 right.
    Try the quiz one
    more time. You're
    so close. You only
    missed one! I'll
    let you pass!
    That's fantastic!
    You got every one
    right! As your
    reward, I bestow
    upon you Thunder
    Magic. You may pass.
    
    The Elder Dragon
    has something he
    wishes to discuss
    with you.
    
    Please go to him
    now.
    
    Only one bearing
    the Ancient Axe can
    enter the volcano.
    I saw someone
    carring the Fire-
    Urn and preparing
    to enter the
    volcano. The shop
    is closed.
    
    I'm Shiela Purapril.
    
    I thank you for
    rescuing me.
    
    I heard that you're
    on a journey and
    that you're
    battling the
    monsters.
    
    Why don't you stop
    by the village of
    Lilypad?
    
    There may be
    something there for
    you.
    
    Watch out for
    monsters on your way.
    
    I Thank you again.
    
    Are you having a
    safe journey?
    
    Rumor has it that
    you're the
    legendary hero. Is
    it true that you
    crossed the
    desert? That's
    incredible! I heard
    you went to Ice
    Castle.
    
    Be very, very
    careful.
    
    I worry about you.
    The Sphinx! The
    Bracelet has begun
    to glow. The seal
    is broken.
    
    Forgive me, but we
    seem to be sold
    out. Please come
    again. Thank you
    for coming.
    
    This is the weapon
    shop known as
    Labyrinth. Thank
    you very much.
    
    What an excellent
    choice!
    
    It looks like I'm a
    storekeeper with
    nothing to sell!
    Ha, ha, ha, ha...
    Well, come on in.
    Take your time.
    
    You're the
    legendary hero I've
    heard so much about.
    
    The item you're
    looking for is in
    Ice Castle.
    
    Be warned-it's a
    frightening place.
    
    Take Shabo with
    you, in case you
    need help. The Old
    Axe, in its
    original form, is
    of no use to you.
    
    You'd better return
    to Begonia and see
    the Blacksmith.
    You're finally
    starting to look
    like a hero.
    
    It appears that my
    job is done.
    
    Now, your final
    battle will no
    doubt be fierce,
    but I'm confident
    that you'll triumph
    and that will be
    allowed to return
    to our land. To
    enter the volcano,
    you must enter the
    room on the other
    side of this door,
    but in order to
    enter, you must
    have the following
    items: the Pygmy
    Sword, Pygmy Armor,
    Pygmy Shield, and
    Pygmy Boots.
    
    You have satisfied
    the requirements.
    You may enter. One
    of the items is
    missing. Continue
    your search. You
    need two more
    items. Continue
    your search. You
    have only one of
    the four you need.
    Continue your
    search. You have
    yet to find even
    one of the items.
    You must find all
    four. Gragg &
    Glagg! The Ice
    Bomber! The Tyrant
    Dragon! The
    Almighty Demon King!
    
    I've heard that the
    Sphinx in the
    Pyramid likes
    quizzes. If you
    have a certain
    special item, you
    can swim
    underwater. The
    star crest on this
    Bell Tower is the
    same as the
    insignia on the
    weapon of the
    legendary hero.
    
    The princess told
    me this a long time
    ago.
    
    You're very strong.
    
    I hope one day I'll
    be so strong. It is
    said that there's a
    shrine at the
    bottom of the
    
    sea, but no one's
    ever been able to
    find the entrance.
    I am the Prince of
    DarkWorld, and you
    must be the
    legendary hero.
    
    I was under the
    control of Biomeka,
    a deadly creature
    from outer space,
    but I'm alright now.
    
    Thank you for
    coming to my aid....
    
    Some hero. Is that
    the best you can do?
    
    Well, watch this!
    Not too bad, eh?
    Now, let's see if
    you've got what it
    takes.
    
    You're really going
    to go,aren't you...
    
    Can't you stay with
    me?
    
    No, you're the
    legendary hero.
    
    You must go.
    
    Be sure to come
    back safely.
    
    I'll be waiting
    right here for you.
    
    There's a
    convenient slot....
    Shion inserts the
    Gold Gem.
    
    The Gem doesn't fit!
    
    Shion inserts the
    Blue Gem.
    
    A secret lies in
    the surface of the
    walls of Ice Castle.
    
    Do you know where
    the prince went? I
    think he's gone to
    Nightmare Castle.
    He's probably
    attempting to
    collect the
    legendary weapons.
    
    It looks as though
    he's got all but
    one of them... It's
    sealed. You can
    ride a jellyfish!
    The monsters have
    come and made this
    their home, so no
    one may enter!
    Finally, the long,
    treacherous journey
    has reached its end.
    
    None of the people
    in Monster World
    will ever forget
    what they've been
    through, nor will
    they forget the
    hero who gave their
    lives back to them.
    
    The story of
    Shion's valiant
    struggle will no
    doubt be passed on
    from generation to
    generation.
    
    And so ends another
    episode in the
    adventures of
    "Wonder Boy".
    
    Welcome home,
    Shion. I'm so happy
    you made it back
    safely. I don't
    think I'll ever
    forget you... ever.
    
    The dwarf child is
    in danger!
    
    Danger! The desert
    lies ahead!
    
    Anyone shorter than
    this sign will not
    be able to move it.
    
    YES NO gold
