* SeriesFauxnale: [[spoiler:Asha is the one who finally puts an end to Biomeka]]. This game used to be the SeriesFinale until the announcement of a [[WonderBoyAndTheCursedKingdom new game]] in 2015. It is also the final game of the series to be released under Sega's helm, and thus the last one to sport the familiar ''Monster World'' title.

* BackFromTheDead: Three examples: 1) [[spoiler:Pepe]] returns to help you during the final battle. 2) The final boss, Fear Incarnate, is [[spoiler:Bio Meka]] from ''Wonder Boy in Monster World''. 3) [[spoiler:Pepe]] is revived again during the ending credits by Asha.
* BadassAdorable: Asha/Arsha fits this trope to a T. Not only does she go out and fight against the evil threatening the world. She is also the one to finally put an end to [[spoiler:Biomeka.]]

** Shion himself is mentioned in one of the books. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, it's not good news: a hole suddenly appeared in front of his house, he disappeared and was never heard from again]]. Then again, the official 2012 English version doesn't have the bad part.

* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: [[spoiler: The crazy old woman walking around with a pan on her head, telling you the Pepelogoos are harbingers of doom and despair is completely correct.]]
* CuteIsEvil: [[spoiler: The yellow Pepeloogos turn to be malevolent little critters whom Fear Incarnate and the Warlocks are using to emotionally control the inhabitants of the town.]]
* DarkestHour: [[spoiler: After the yellow Pepeloogos reveal themselves, the background music in town switches to an ominous tune. The villagers are apathetic and some are very rude to you (including the rich lady, who won't buy gold bars from you) and the armor merchant is no longer there. On top of what, the previously nice queen is going mad with power, and after confronting her, Pepe nearly dies and can't follow you anymore]].

* HeroicSacrifice: Done twice by the [[spoiler:the Pepelogoo]]. First, he [[TakingTheBullet takes the missile]] that the queen shoots at Asha. Then, in the final battle, he blocks the boss from using his petrifying gaze, getting turned to stone himself in the process.
* HopelessBossFight: Just after completing the Sky Castle/Aegis Island, Asha must encounter the Queen again. This time there is no winning the fight as any attack you try does nothing to her and her attacks do triple damage compared to the rest of the game. It is subverted after you are down to one heart when [[spoiler: Pepe returns and sings the Cradle Song of Pepelogoo that reverses all of the corruption that occurred in the town.]]

'''''Monster World IV''''' is the sixth and final installment in the ''Franchise/WonderBoy'' franchise. The player controls Asha who embarks on a journey to help out spirits calling for her. Notable for being the only "Monster World" game without a male protagonist and thus was released without the usual "Wonder Boy" branding.

* FanTranslation: To be expected of a game that 1) is part of a series that usually got translated 1) didn't receive an official translation until nearly two decades after its Japanese release.



* NoExportForYou: ''Monster World IV'' was only available in Japan initially. In 2012, after 15 years since its original Mega Drive release, an English version of ''Monster World IV'' is being released by Sega as a downloadable game for the {{Wii}}, {{PlayStation 3}} and {{Xbox 360}}.
