Puzzle and Dragons Z is part of a series of puzzle RPG games with dragons. Outside of Japan, it was bundled with a crossover, Puzzle and Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition.

So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
To do:
There is one relic that was never released outside of Japan that is fully functional in the US/EUR releases! There is also dummied out content leftover from the Japanese release in the US/EUR versions as well! Document this! And possibly document the pre-order and weekly distributed relics and their content, as they have never been re-released since their original run! Also: regional differences, Super Mario Bros. Edition (unless that belongs elsewhere), etc.

Three different variations of a dragon shaped target. A lighter colored one, one cut off on the sides, and a larger one with no strings.


Most likely the strings for the larger target.


A big, white circle.


This... guy, and his dragon friend. Part of the dragon's tooth is cut off for some reason.
