Okay, what's the canon on monsters that can speak the language the player character can? Is it pick-and-choose? Is it just we aren't hearing them talk because they're too busy trying to kill us? Shouldn't this be a trope on the main franchise page or something?

Endless Corridor entry: Since it only applies to one game in the series, shouldn't it go on the page for the specific game? I don't know which one it's in, or I'd add it myself.

That would be Dragon Quest 2 and the infamous Cave/Road to Rhone.

This should be in the Franchise namespace, shouldn't it?

No, it shouldn't. All the entries are under VideoGame/; the Franchise/ namespace needs at least three different namespaces for the subworks. This is a video game series, thus under VideoGame/.

Yeah, I can only think of two- the video game series and the anime/manga series.

"[...] Tabletop RPG called Dragon Quest, [...], it was bought out and buried by the owners of Dungeons & Dragons so it would not be a threat to their Merchandise Driven empire."

Is there any support for this? My understanding is that Simulation Publications, Inc, the makers of the Dragon Quest RPG, defaulted on a loan to TSR, which then took the collateral, which were SPI's assets and IP, including Dragon Quest, when SPI declared bankruptcy. TSR republished the Dragon Quest rules (and added some new ones), and later used the Dragon Quest name for a product of its own (an introductory version of the Dungeons and Dragons game that combined elements of the Basic Set and boardgaming), but later dropped the whole thing and Wizards of the Coast abandoned the trademark, allowing Square Enix to publish the Dragon Quest games with that title in the United States (although Wizards still holds copyright on the DQ rules).

Right now, "Dragon Warrior" shows up as "Should be no custom display" in the wiki when it's linked to. I have no idea why, but nevertheless we should fix it.

Considering adding the fact that the "puff-puff" gag was originally mentioned in Dragon Ball. Not sure which trope it would count as, though: Mythology Gag (given Toriyama's involvement), or Shout-Out?

I'm considering making a Crowning Music of Awesome section for the series, but am unsure how to create such a namespace? Could someone give me a hand?
