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:

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!

Alsedo, the fairy
village

Purapril Castle
Entrance

Maugham Desert-
enter at your own
risk!

Lilypad, the
dwarf village

Begonia, the dragon
village

Childam,
the Darkworld village

Purapril, the Aqua
Capital

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!
