Magnum Opus has been declared In Universe Examples Only per TRS.
A deeply moving and great story following a boy through his life, with the addition of {{Mon}}s (for the better, and this game [[OlderThanTheyThink preceded]] ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}})'', an element not seen in other ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' games (not the mainstream ones, at least). [[MagnumOpus It is the favorite of Yuji Horii]], the creator of the series, and stands as very nearly the [[http://www.metacritic.com/game/ds/dragon-quest-v-hand-of-the-heavenly-bride best-reviewed]] and critically-respected game of the entire franchise.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: ** The "Talk" feature in the DS version. ''Every'' human character has something unique to say for each NPC you talk to or after each plot event. This leads to some great CharacterDevelopment, which was sorely lacking in the original. ** At the beginning of the game, the hero's parents debate over what to name him; Pankraz will suggest naming him Madason -- for son of Mada, while Mada will end up choosing [[HelloInsertNameHere whatever you put down yourself]]. If you anticipate Pankraz, however, and name the hero Madason yourself, Pankraz will suggest [[VideoGame/DragonQuestIII Erdrick]] instead.

Sancho is nowhere near a Mexican stereotype, he's very evidently a Spaniard stereotype, both physically (light-skinned brown-haired with curly moustache, plump, wearing a halberd in official art) and in-game (siesta, paella, tortilla - never uses Mexican lingo, but does use Spanish lingo like "ole" "anda" or "vamos".
* ModernMinstrelsy: The official English translation portrays Sancho as a dreadful Mexican stereotype (who apparently cooks a mean paella (a ''Spanish'' dish)).

** Bishop Ladja gets considerably more screentime and involvement in the plot in TheRemake than in the original. To elaborate, [[spoiler:he's the one who petrifies you and your wife instead of Kon (as a last-ditch effort before kicking the bucket). Also, instead of being killed in Talon Tower as in the original, he survives to personally execute King Korol for his failure to defeat the party and ends up being fought at the entrance to TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.]]

Added DiffLines:
** A few other monsters can become this if you luck into recruiting one, particularly the Metal Slime (of course) and the Dancing Jewel/Goodybag, the latter of which actually had decent recruitment odds. The Metal Slime doesn't really need explanation; the Goodybag, meanwhile, can be a bit hampered by the low Wisdom random AI at times, but when you have 180 Defense with gear ''at recruitment time'', near-blanket immunity to all elements, and get Kaswoosh at your (low) level cap, who even cares?

** Villagers of the small village called Hay speak with a [[AmericanAccents Texas drawl]], in a way that it's too painful to read or to understand at all. Granted, even in the original, they were [[KansaiRegionalAccent kansai to a ludicrous degree]].

* ImpliedLoveInterest: Bianca since all official depictions of Parry and Madchen (or Ten{Heaven} and Sora{Sky} in the manga adaptation) have them with blonde hair. In the game they only have blond hair if their mother is Bianca.
