Trivia: Dragon Quest VIII

  • Fan Nickname: There are some who refer to The Hero as Eight, seeing as though that's how he's apparently referred to in the manual. Others dub him Guv, after Yangus's nickname for him.

  • Dub Name Change: This was the first Dragon Quest game released in Europe so they took a page out of Square's old playbook and ditched the VIII, making the game's title Dragon Quest: Journey of the Cursed King.
