YMMV / Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Lizard Man has the unique features of using a ranged attack instead of a sword, being impervious to lava, using his head to break blocks instead of using a weapon and being able to duck. Despite that, none of his abilities were used in any unique way during the game, and he is the only form that goes unused in the final dungeon.
    • In fact, the only area where Lizard-Man can make use of being impervious to lava is exactly the place where he doesn't need to go, and going in anyway is a waste of time because of the obstacles set immediately after that part being tailored for two other transformations (the mid-game Piranha-Man and the endgame Hawk-Man), and the loooong haul back to the Hub City.
