Dragon Quest Synopsis: Dai no Daibouken

In the story, after defeating the demon lord Hadlar, all the monsters were freed from evil control and drawn to the island of Delmurin to live peacefully. Dai is the only person who lives there.

Dai was raised by Monster Brass and dreams of becoming a hero. He sees a chance to become one when he learns that the demon lord Hadlar has risen and that the previous hero, Avan, has come to train Dai.

But Hadlar announces that he is now serving a demon lord far more powerful than himself, and Avan is hunting. To save his student, the hero uses the spell of self-sacrifice, but cannot defeat Hadlar. Cornered and shortly before death, the hero's mark appears on Dai's forehead and he gains the strength to stand against him. Can he save the world now that he's become a hero?
