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.


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.
