'''''Wonder Boy in Monster Land''''', is the second game in the "Franchise/WonderBoy" series. A departure from the original ''VideoGame/WonderBoy'', rather than being a standard platformer like the original, ''Monster Land'' employed a more action RPG-like approach to its game design, allowing the player to equip his characters with swords, spells and various pieces of armor. The player controls a young lad named Bocke Lee Temjin as he sets out to rescue his homeland of Wonder Land, which has been taken over by an army of monsters led by an evil dragon.

* AllThereInTheManual: This game is virtually disconnected from the original ''Wonder Boy'' game except for a mention in the localized manual for the Master System port as the event having taken place eleven years prior. The citizens of Monster Land somehow heard the tale, and call the hero by the legendary title "Wonder Boy" (the manual also mentions that his moniker in the home ports, "Tom-Tom", is actually a childhood nickname). Now a teenager, Wonder Boy (real name Bock Lee Temjin) is summoned to save the kingdom. While there is no indication of this in the original Arcade version, both characters were reaffirmed as [[RetCon one in the same]] in the manual for ''[[VideoGame/WonderBoyIIITheDragonsTrap Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* BonusBoss: In the Master System version, the eighth round (which in itself is an exclusive area with its own end boss) is home to a secret boss known as the Wizard. Defeating him yields nine Lightning Bolt spells, which may definitely come in handy later on.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The hero's name. The arcade game spells his full name as "Bocke Lee Temjin" (with "Book the Hero", the name given in the instruction card, being his nickname) in the casting roll, while the manual for the Master System version spells it "Bock Lee Temjin" (removing the "e" from "Bocke"). Some of the enemies have their names spelled differently as well, most notably the final boss of the game - which was originally called the Mechanic Dragon, and called the MEKA dragon, Meka Dragon and Mecha Dragon in later sources such as ''The Dragon's Trap''.
