* {{DLC}}: Of the "already on-disc" variety. But now that Nintendo's online services has been discontinued, all of this is LostForever.

* LostForever: If you try to sell something DQVC-exclusive or a piece of equipment from one of the Inn guests, the shopkeeper will warn you that you might never be able to get it back.
** Also, if you somehow do not receive a certain piece of gear from a legacy boss via drop before leveling them up past the point where they start dropping something else instead (unlikely, as it is usually 20-25 percent drop and you may have to fight them over 20-30 times before they drop something else).
** On a meta note, Nintendo ended support for WFC (Wi-Fi Connection) for all DS and Wii software on May 20th, 2014. A large number of bonus quest flags, the Inn guests, and DQVC exclusive items will now be unobtainable if they have not already been activated/downloaded or retrieved, making true 100% Completion impossible.

* AnimeHair: One of the possible hairstyles is basically [[DragonBallZ Vegeta]]. (Did we mention the character designer is Dragonball creator Akira Toriyama?)

** Using the character creation system, you can make expies of other characters designed by Toriyama. Among them, [[BlueDragon Shu]], [[VideoGame/ChronoTrigger Crono, Marle, and Lucca]], [[DragonBallZ Androids #17 and 18, and Gohan]], and [[Anime/DragonBallGT Uub]]... just to name a few. It's also possible to [[http://alkaplantestsite.webs.com/dq9/DQcoplayparty.jpg recreate]] virtually every previous ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' hero. In fact, the game even offers their trademark garbs as some of the more useful equips.

** The battle against the Final Boss is a downplayed example in that, while it's technically a normal battle (complete with white flash at it's end, victory screen and fanfare), all your eggorts amounted to giving him a hard slap, after which he decide to blow up the world anyway.

** In the French version of the game, Purrviss is named Mac Leo, the leo part is a {{Pun}} on the fact that he's an anthropomorphic panthera (''léopard'') in French. As for the ShoutOut itself... he's a [[Film/{{Highlander}} master swordman from 300 years ago and his name is actually one letter away from Macleod]].

* NetworkToTheRescue: Can you believe that SquareEnix wasn't going to localize this gem? Creator/{{Nintendo}} took this game into their hands, and gave it some much-needed publicity, as they did with the original ''VideoGame/DragonQuestI'' and later did with ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI''.
** SquareEnix has hence declared ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' dead in the West, leaving Nintendo to localize ''[[VideoGame/DragonQuestMonstersJoker2 Joker 2]]'' and all future titles.

* SelfImposedChallenge: The game is meant for combat with a four-man party, but there are many players who run TheHero solo. This transforms some of the boss fights, like [[StatusBuff The Dreadmaster]] into chokepoints that can only be overcome if the Hero has certain skills. (Shield skills, Man, that's the way to go).

* RandomDropBooster: The Thief class has a LimitBreak called Itemized Kill, which guarantees an item drop from the enemy (even {{Bonus Boss}}es). It can be combined with the Armamentalist's Voice of Experience (more XP) to give Haulellujah (increased gold, XP and drops).
