''Dai's Big Adventure'', more or less. A {{Shounen}} manga (and later anime) series, spun off the wildly popular ''DragonQuest'' RPG series, with a scenario by Sanjo Riku and art by Koji Inada (both of whom later went on to create ''Manga/BeetTheVandelBuster''). The titular hero, Dai, is a young kid who's been raised by monsters on Delmarine Island after he was washed ashore as an infant, the only survivor of a shipwreck, and who dreams of being an adventure hero. Since the [[BigBad Demon King]] had been defeated many years before, the monsters have been freed from his influence and are actually quite peaceful but suddenly, one day, the Demon King comes back to life, and the monsters start raging again.

Added DiffLines:

* FakeUltimateHero: Dai ran into a group of people that was scamming free stuff by impersonating them and set them straight; eventually they repay the favor by helping prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.

Added DiffLines:

* BetaCouple: A unique case where the Beta Couple is the main couple. Leona and Dai are pretty clearly attracted to each other from the start and they remain so throughout the manga. The only reason why they aren't [[ChastityCouple actively dating]] is probably because they're 1. they're a bit young and 2. they're preoccupied with saving the world. Compare them to the Pop-Maamu-Hyuunkel-Merle-whoever mess.
** Avan and Flora serve as a predecessor to Leona and Dai. They share very similar dynamics up to and including [[spoiler: a DisneyDeath HeroicSacrifice [[StarCrossedLovers preventing them from being together]] (at least for a time)]]


Added DiffLines:

* LadyAndKnight: Avan and Flora and Leona and Dai have this dynamic. A slightly reluctant warrior who becomes a hero to protect the princess.

Added DiffLines:

** Pop surprisingly. He ends up shirtless a lot either due to clothing damage or because he likes training without a shirt on. He's pretty well built for a cowardly wizard.

* CloudCuckoolander: Aban pretends to be one to hide his own abilities from foes and friends.Even the goofy glasses he wears all the time were given to him by princess Flora herself to complete the disguise.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: Baran gets no recognition for his defeat of Velther and it's implied that his heroics are overshadowed by Avan's defeat of Hadlar. The reason being that while Hadlar is weaker, he was more immediate threat; he was already conquering parts of the surface. Velther was stopped before he could mount an invasion.



* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Leona and Flora.

to:

* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Leona and Flora.Soara. Averted with Flora, the Queen of Carl.



* FantasticRacism: Humans and monsters and dragons all have this to varying degrees.



* FlorenceNightingaleEffect: Soara and Baran fall in love after she nurses him back to health.



* GenerationXerox: Emphasized by the fact that Maam's father was on Aban's team and that princess Flora is practically just an older Leona.

* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Subverted. While Dai's friends cannot catch up to Dai's superhuman strength, they all go through harsh trainings to increase their powers and are able to assist Dai tremendously. There are always multiple threats that need to be dealt with Dai is only able to tackle the strongest one.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Baran and Avan are both RetiredBadass who defeated great evils before the story
** It's a sore point with Baran. He defeated Velther, the dragon lord who was planning to invade the surface but received no recognition because he was overshadowed by Avan's defeat of Hadler.



** Dai averts this by being a MagicKnight.

** Dai averts this by being a MagicKnight. [[KungfuWizard Maam]] and [[ThePaladin Avan]] also to a lesser extent.



** Dai and Leona get no resolution either due to [[spoiler: Dai's DisneyDeath HeroicSacrifice]].
** Really the only couple that does get resolved is Flora and Avan. He's shown ruling Carl with her meaning that she probably finally strong-armed him into a relationship.



** [[spoiler: Baran plays this straight as he finally becomes an ally and accepts his role as a father and mentor]]



* ObfuscatingStupidity: Aban. He thinks gloating over his capabilities is a waste of time (and gloating includes merely stating them or showing them). So he pretends -or lets other people thinks- he is a bumbling fool, unless he needs using them.
* TrueCompanions: the disciples of Aban -- Dai, Pop, Maam and Hyunkel -- plus Crocodine and Leona.

* {{Shounen}}: Has ''
* ShrinkingViolet: Merle fits this trope like a glove. The fact that she is Maam's polar opposite and how she is painfully aware of how Pop only has eyes for Maam makes it hurt even more.

* TomboyandGirlyGirl: Played all over with Leona and Maamu. Maamu's a fighter and a Tsundere while Leona's a WhiteMagicianGirl whose open about who she loves. However, their personalities don't fit the type. Maamu when she's in love, is a bit of a ShrinkingViolet who CantSpitItOut (see her crush on Hyunkel). Leona in contrast is much more FilieFatale aggressive about pursuing Dai. Maamu serves as the TeamMom while Leona is TheFace.
