The title are primarily centered around Torneko, the merchant first met in Dragon Quest Ⅳ: Chapters of the Chosen.

The Mystery Dungeon series first began as a spin-off of Dragon Quest Ⅳ: Chapters of the Chosen, known as Dragon Warrior Ⅳ in North America, with the Torneko's Great Adventure trilogy. Torneko would latter appears as a cameo in the spin-off and prequel of Dragon Quest Ⅷ: Journey of the Cursed King, Dragon Quest: Young Yangus and the Mysterious Dungeon, which marks the first and only game to control a different character, being Young Yangus in that case.
