Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai (ドラゴンクエスト ダイの大冒険, Dragon Quest: Dai no Daiboken, translated as Dragon Quest: The Great Adventure of Dai) is a Japanese comic series based on the Erdrick trilogy, mainly on Dragon Quest III and its class system. It features filler pages giving game-like character stats of the heroes, using the III stats formulas and often explains details of spells used in the games.

The comic was written by Riku Sanjo, illustrated by Koji Inada and supervised by Yuji Horii.

It started after the release of the Erdrick trilogy and saw the release of the whole Zenithia trilogy during its original run. The series was first collected in 37 volumes. Some of its spells, techniques and various terminology later went into the games, and the characters themselves appeared in several games. As of September 2020, the only English release related to this franchise was in Jump Force.

Being one of Weekly Shonen Jump top selling series of all time,[1] Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai was adapted into three films (the 1991 homonymous film, Avan's Disciples and Six Great Generals) and two TV series of the same name in (1991 and 2020.

Plot

The plot centres around the revival of the Dark Lord Hadlar defeated in an earlier war, his attempts to conquer the world and the fight of the heroes against him.

Characters

Protagonists

  • Dai, the main hero. He has grown up on an island full of friendly monsters. For a short time, he has been trained by Avan, but he always has difficulty casting spells, usually it works only when he is very angry.
  • Avan, who trains the hero for a short time, but then dies fighting Hadlar. He remains ever-present as a role model, and many of the characters are former disciples or comrades of Avan.
  • Popp, another disciple of Avan who came to Dai's island with him. He is the first party member to join, so to say. A mage with a lazy and cowardly streak who often has to be shamed into doing the right (heroic) thing, he provides the comic relief in the series.
  • Maam, daughter of the warrior and the priest who fought with Avan in the previous war, and a former disciple of his, is the next to join. She is described as a priest-warrior. She has no offensive spells, but a gun Avan gave her that can fire spells on bullets. Popp, who initially detests her, later develops a crush on Maam.
  • Leona, the young princess of Papnica, a land of sages. Early in the manga, Dai saves her from a conspiracy that tries to use a ritual on the island to kill her, and falls in love with her.
  • Gome, a golden metal slime with wings. He rarely takes an active part, but is something like the mascot of the series.

Antagonists

  • Hadlar, who was the Dark Lord defeated by Avan in the previous war and who he kills early in the manga. He becomes the leader of the Dark Army, divided into 6 factions (each leaded by a leader).
  • Hyunckel, legat of the Undead Legion.
  • Crocodine, Beast King of the Furfang Legion.
  • Myst-Vearn, Officer of the Shadow Legion of the Dark Army. A creature shrouded in mystery. He rarely speaks.
  • Zaboera, Bishop of the Mystic Legion.
    • Zamza, Zaboera's son and a commander in the Mystic Legion.
  • Flazzard, Genral of the Blizzblaze Legion.
  • Baran, Tamer of the Dragon Legion.
  • Baron, a sage who rebelled against Leona.
  • Temujin, who rebelled against Leona.

Minor protagonists

  • Brass, Dai's adoptive grandfather.
  • The fake heroes, a group who act as heroes but are really just after money. The members in detail:
  • Synana (The King of Romos), a typical elderly, rotund Dragon Quest King.
  • Three wise sages that protect Princess of Papnica:
  • Merle, A young fortune teller.
  • Nabara, Merle's grandmother also a fortune teller.
  • Chiu, a rat monster that trained alongside Maam under Brookeena.
  • Matoriv, a lecherous old sorcerer who fought on the side of Avan in the previous war. Reluctantly he agrees to help the heroes again and trains Popp for a while. Graphically, Matoriv sticks out among the characters by being based on Kazuhiko Torishima.
  • Baduck, a fencer from Papnica.
  • Lon Berk, a demon and the world's best blacksmith.
  • Nova, captain of Ringaia and "Hero of the North".

Trivia

  • In its original one-shot, it featured monsters from Dragon Quest IV before the game was released.
  • The manga reuses elements first introduced in its second and third anime movie tie-in, including Captain Nelson's name from the second and the Beruna forest location from the third.
  • An Underworld Arc taking place 5 years later was drafted by writer Sanjo, at editor Kazuhiko Torishima's request, but becuase he felt Vearn was the natural endpoint and due to artist Inada's sickness it was scrapped.

    • The Field of Death is based on Okinawa
    • Malnora is based on Hokkaido
