Added DiffLines:

* Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards: Early on, warriors can deal heavy damage to enemies while wizards are hard pressed to beat Slimes without burning into their relatively small mana pool. Later on, though, wizards get multi-target spells and single target one-shots, while warriors are stuck mashing A.

The game has had a fairly healthy release history. First released for the Famicom in 1988, it came to the North American NES in mid-1991 (which is part of the reason it wasn't nearly as influential in English speaking circles), and then received a substantial remake in 1996 for the Super Famicom, which never got exported. It was then ported to the Game Boy Color in late 2000, with the English speaking world getting a release some months later. Finally, the Super Famicom version received a further up-port to Japanese feature phones in 2009, which America still didn't originally get due to market differences. However, the mobile version was ported ''again'' to [=iOS=] and Android smartphones in 2014, to much acclaim, and the fact that this version was released in English means this is probably the easiest way to play it today overall.

* EasterEgg: In the remakes, the hero has the ability to "memorize" NPC speeches and dialogues, which the player can play back again by using the hero's Recall spell. As the hero levels up, it gets upgraded versions of this spell, Remember and Recollect. If you use these upgraded spells without having memorized too many pieces of dialogue throughout the game up until that point, the hero will be able to remember a conversation they overheard between their parents when they were just a small child.

** The swimsuits will give female characters a new sprite; there's a unique swimsuit for every class.

* DarkWorld: The hero must visit one late in the game. [[spoiler: Fascinatingly, the Dark World is ''Alefgard'' -- as in, the continent from ''Dragon Quest I''. Like any good Nostalgia Level, traveling through it will allow you to make plenty of connections with the first game]].

* GuideDangIt: The map that comes with the game had a chart which shows when a character will learn a spell. However, this is only a best guess. When a character learns a spell is based on their intelligence, and not their level; unfortunately the manual neglects to mention this!

Added DiffLines:

* MarketBasedTitle: Was called ''Dragon Warrior III'' in America until Square-Enix changed the series's name in the west back to ''Dragon Quest''. The Japanese version also has the subtitle "''Thus, Into Legend...''", while the western mobile version has its own subtitle: "''The Seeds of Salvation''".
