* MorePopularSpinoff: The ''Monster World'' sub-series. There's a reason why the [=PS2=] compilation was titled the ''Monster World: Complete Collection'' and not the "Wonder Boy Collection"

to:

* MarketBasedTitle
** The Mark III version was titled ''Super Wonder Boy'', presumably to distinguish it from the earlier SG-1000 version released exclusively in Japan, since the Mark III was backwards-compatible with all SG-1000 games (also doubles as an UpdatedRerelease, as two extra areas were added and the dolls were given purpose besides points).
** For some reason, the Game Gear version (based on the above release) was titled ''Revenge of Drancon'' in North America (it was simply called ''Wonder Boy'' everywhere else).

* TitleConfusion: There are two games titled "Wonder Boy III" and both are justified since they're the third Wonder Boy games for their corresponding platforms. ''Monster Lair'' was the third arcade game and ''The Dragon's Trap'' was the third Master System game. Officially speaking, the latter is known as ''Monster World II'' in Japan, where it is recognized as the fourth Wonder Boy game, since the following game (''Wonder Boy in Monster World'') was called ''Wonder Boy V: Monster World III'' over there.

* ThatOneBoss: The ice boss, who moves erratically and constantly chucks ice crystals that expand when you shoot them. Also, the robo-knight, with its difficult-to-dodge homing missile.
** Wait what? Are you sure you're talking about the right game?
