* BlindIdiotTranslation: The arcade version's ending text. "The invaders from the space were destroyed by your courageous fight..." The Megadrive's ending screen isn't much better.

* EvilDoppelganger: At first, the final boss appears to be Book the Hero or the original Wonder Boy (hence his name in the title), but it turns out to be aliens.



* GaidenGame / AlternateContinuity: This picks up from the ending of the arcade version of ''Monster Land'', where aliens steal the Legendary equipment. This is inconsistent with the SMS sequel, where Bock [[BagOfSpilling leaves it behind]] in the collapsing castle after being cursed, but regains it near the end of the game.

* LongSongShortScene: Most of the stages, as well as the boss battles, end before you get to hear the entirety of the music, at least in the TGCD version.
* MarketBasedTitle: The [=TurboGrafx 16=] version drops the ''Wonder Boy III'' part of the title and is simply called ''Monster Lair''. This does not apply to the PC Engine version, which still used the arcade game's full title.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Purapril is also called "Pappilo" and "Papillo" in the European arcade flyer, and "Pricilla" in the Mega Drive version (Purapril is an accurate official translation of her name that respectively comes from a castle in ''[[VideoGame/WonderBoyInMonsterWorld Wonder Boy in Monster World]]'' and apparent descendant in ''VideoGame/MonsterWorldIV''). In the TurboGrafxCD version, the playable characters were instead called "Adam" and "Laura".
