** Why do shopkeepers keep buying Cursed Belts from the hero (these can be farmed for cash early on, in fact). They pay good money for something that [[ShmuckBait even says it's cursed]]. Who's buying these things?

**** The [[http://www.woodus.com/den/games/dw1nes/pdf/dw1nes_nintendo_handbook.pdf Explorer's Handbook]] that came with the US NES game gives a (false) origin story for the Dragonlord in which he was a hermit living in the Mountain Cave who, when exploring the depths of his home, stumbles upon the superdragon, and is surprised when it kneels before him. (This was presumedly to hide the final battle's reveal, as the rest of the handbook is a walkthrough that doesn't cover the second half of the battle.) It then erroneously states that he stole the Ball of Light and Princess Gwaelin in two seperate raids, with Erdrick arriving after the first raid and presumedly dying when facing the Dragonlord. It ends with the ending of the first game and the prologue of the second game.

** This only applies to the original Famicom version of DragonQuestI. You know why the Dragonlord's Superdragon suddenly attacks you after you killed the BigBad? You just killed its master and it is really angry about his master's death.

*** I'm very curious as to where this rumor came from. It's refenced in as least three tropes on the main page, and it just isn't the case at all. After defeating the original Famicom Dragonlord ("Ryuuou"), three words appear, meaning "Dragonlord," "true form," and "revealed." Then the dragon appears, with the same "Ryuuou" name. What's up with this?
