Are you a bad enough dude to
Dragon Quest V is, as you may have guessed, the fifth Dragon Quest title. While it was unreleased outside Japan until its remake for the Nintendo DS, there are fan translations for both the original Super Famicom game and its PlayStation 2 remake.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Get the debug menu to actually work.
The incomplete Game Genie code DD6D-DDD0 DD6D-DD00 will activate a Debug Mode of sorts in the Japanese version. Holding B activates a walk-through-walls mode, and if you use the Return magic, you can warp to any location in the game.
When you bring up the menu with A then select the second option, a fifth option for opening a debug menu is added. However, it crashes the game because this cheat code is incomplete.
There's a hidden cheat in the game only activated under very strange condition. Often called as "Hitoshikonomi" (ひとしこのみ), named after the first syllable of each required item, you need to equip your protagonist with these and said items only in exact order:
- Cypress stick (ひのきのぼう)
- Bone stake (とがったホネ)
- Happy hat (しあわせのぼうし)
- Oaken club (こんぼう)
- Saw blade (のこぎりがたな)
- Cloak of evasion (みかわしのふく)
If done correctly, your party member's attack will always be counted as a critical hit, and any recruitable monsters will join you by 100% chance. This secret feature is never hinted in any official media, and made unavailable in subsequent ports, so it's probably an artifact of development that they simply forgot to remove.
