Dragon Quest Synopsis: Dai no Daibouken

Long ago there was a brave swordsman who came to be known simply as "the hero". There was also a demon that made people suffer. The hero and his companions came to challenge the demon to fight, and by combining their powers the fight was quickly over. With no one around to cause trouble, the island became a peaceful place where everyone could live together in peace.

A few years later, the demon is revived. Our current protagonist Dai lives on a remote island in the South Pacific and dreams of becoming a great hero. When he learns of the demon's rebirth, Dai and his friends must stop him and the evil force that resurrected him. Along the way, Dai discovers the identity of the "hero", the truth behind the evil force that resurrected the demon, and Dai's own hidden powers that emerge in times of danger.
