    Hello and welcome to my Sidequest FAQ for WonderBoy in Monsterland. I loved
    this game as a kid. So much better than that Mario guy. Anyway, I have written
    this short guide about the only sidequest in the game, that will make your
    battle with the dragon a lot easier. People often forget how to follow this
    sidequest, so now you have a shiny guide to follow.
    
    Cheers,

    On Round 2, you will enter a cave after going through the village area. Above
    the first lava pit that you come to, there are some platforms. As you land on
    the platform, a sign will appear saying "Someone be beyond the wall."
    
    Push up and enter a hidden door. Someone inside will speak to you about the
    Hero's Emblem. He will also give you the Scroll To Catherine. You need to take
    this to Catherine during Round 4. You can see the Scroll To Catherine in the
    status menu.

    At the start of Round 4, you will make your way over a body of water. On the
    other side is the town of Baraboro. Climb the only ladder here and at the top
    is a shield shop. To the right of this there is bare wall. Press up in the
    centre of this wall and you will enter a hidden door.
    
    In here you will find Catherine. She will tell you that an old man on Pororo
    Island will help you obtain it. She will then give you the Flute to help you
    reach the mansion.

    Towards the end of Round 7, you will reach Pororo Island. You will see the
    exit door here. However, you should ignore that for now. Instead, head to the
    far right of this area. Here, there is a ladder. Climb to the top and you will
    automatically play the Flute. This will reveal a mansion over on the right.
    Head inside.
    
    Once inside the mansion, go to the area with the Mini-Knight in it. Kill the
    knight and go through the door above the moving platform. In here you will
    find the "old man". He will give you the Charm of Star. He says that you need
    to give it to the Great Catfish, who will exchange it for the Hero's Emblem if
    you are truly worthy. You are now free to exit to the left and continue the
    round.

    On the first screen of Round 11, you will drop through deep water. As you
    fall, there is an item shop on a high ledge just to the left. Make sure that
    you drop onto this ledge, otherwise you will miss your chance to get the
    Emblem.
    
    Once on here, go into the item shop, then leave. Enter a second time and you
    will be faced with the Great Catfish. He will give you the Hero's Emblem. This
    isn't much good as it is, but it will give you a chance to obtain one of two
    useful items before facing the dragon.

    Outside the Dragon's Castle during Round 12, go into the right handmost
    visible door. Here you will speak to someone who will offer you either the
    Bell or the Ruby (as long as you have the Hero's Emblem).
    
    The Bell will help you get through the Dragon's Castle very easily. Everytime
    you are heading in the right direction, the Bell will sound. If you are going
    in the wrong direction the Bell won't sound. Often, if you take a wrong turn,
    you will find yourself back at the entrance of the castle or at least a few
    screens back. This is time you can't afford to lose. It takes ages to reach
    the Dragon and you will lose a lot of health through the hourglass emptying.
    You really need to know where to go.
    
    The Ruby is a very useful item in a different way. Once you have reached the
    Dragon, the Ruby will weaken it. In essence it will cut the first battle
    sequence out. This will help you a lot. The Dragon battle can be pretty
    difficult, so this will make it easier for you.
    
    As you can see, both items provide you with a big advantage. It would be great
    if you could pick them both right? Well, in reality you can just pick the Ruby
    and just follow my directions to the Dragon below.
