Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen (ドラゴンクエストIV 導かれし者たち lit. "Dragon Quest IV: The People Who Are Shown the Way"), known in PAL regions as Dragon Quest: The Chapters of the Chosen and originally released as Dragon Warrior IV in North America, is the fourth installment of the Dragon Quest series. Originally released for the NES/Famicom in 1990, it was later remade for the PlayStation and Nintendo DS. It is the first entry in the Zenithia trilogy.

Western Censorship[]

The Puff-Puff is a recurring term, skill, and gag in the Dragon Quest series. Outside of humorous scenes, the term also refers to a recurring skill used by the silly and the sexy. If used by a female character, it may distract an opponent for a few turns.

  • A dancing girl in the bar of Laissez Fayre will perform a puff-puff for free, but only upon male characters.
  • In Chapter 1, Angus' wife Aigneas gives her befuddled husband a puff-puff to restore his lost memory in the original Japanese script.

Censorship[]

To the disappointment of many fans, the western releases of IV on the Nintendo DS did not include the puff-puff in the Laissez Fayre bar, nor the one Aigneas gives to Angus. This was most likely to maintain a lower content rating.
