Moving example to YMMV
* UrbanLegendOfZelda - Many theories have popped up on methods to legitimately obtaining the three secret monsters ingame in [=DQM2=]. As per typical for the trope, the proposed methods have ridiculous requirements, such as breeding an Orligon and Divinegon together who are both level 99, +99, and with maxed stats, while only having a 1/3 of working to get a Dimensaur, or some variation of the most popular "feed multiples of every possible item to a Dream Egg and then get only a miniscule chance of getting one of the three monsters when you finally hatch the egg". All of these theories have been debunked nor shown any proof of; in particular the popular Dream Egg myth was debunked when it has been figured out that the egg would get "full" (and thus would not accept any more items) before you could give it just 2 of every possible item.

* NoExportForYou - ''Caravan Heart'', though thankfully a FanTranslation has been completed. ** ''Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory'', given how long it's been out in Japan and no word on any sort of localization occurring. *** Battle Road Victory was recently [[http://www.woodus.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=17927 added to Gamestop's database]], which is usually the first hint anyone gets of a release ** ''Joker 2'' was announced at E3 2011 for a US release, but '''not''' the ''Joker 2 Professional'' version released in March, which added over '''500''' new monsters, rebalanced the game, and added post game content. In addition, the online multiplayer aspect of the game will be completely disabled due to the servers running the 2 Professional software, which is not compatible with Joker 2. The original version was still a fantastic game, however. *** Localization was actually completed around the time Pro was released. It's theorized that release was delayed because it could never compete with VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite..

Moving Marth Debuted In Smash Bros example to YMMV
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Neither ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' nor ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'' had been localized by the time ''Terry's Wonderland'' was first released in the west, so a handful of monsters, bosses, and even characters had their western debut in this game; this is especially poignant, considering that ''Terry's Wonderland'' is actually a {{Prequel}} to ''DQVI''.

Added DiffLines:
** In Terry's Wonderland, there are several NPCs willing to breed with you after you pass a certain class. One example is Teto, who after you beat him, apologizes for his behavior and offers to breed his Iceman with you. If you breed it with a bird, you get a Blizzardy, a high-end monster with high HP, agility, and defense. It is also used in many lucrative breeds of other high-end monsters when it starts to cap itself.

** The first two games were pretty much cap-free, with 999 being the only stat limit, and all monsters had it. This changed in ''Joker'' -- individual monsters now have distinct caps. Oddly enough, the monster with the highest total caps? The humble ''Lump Wizard''[[note]]This is a reference to the ''Dragon Quest'' manga, ''DaiNoDaibouken'', where Dai's adoptive grandfather was a Lump Wizard who was really, really powerful due to his age/training/being too stubborn to be weak/''etc''[[/note]]. (The second-highest was the [[IncrediblyLamePun See Butterfly.]])
