** Villagers of the small village called Hay speak with a [[UsefulNotes/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]].

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). 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.
