Torneko's Great Adventure: Mystery Dungeon (Japanese: トルネコの大冒険 不思議のダンジョン) is a spin-off game based on Dragon Quest Ⅳ: Chapters of the Chosen developed and published by Chunsoft on Super Famicom in 1993. It is the first set of the Torneko's Mystery Dungeon series as well as the very first Mystery Dungeon game to be released, succeeding with the creation of the series.
The game features Torneko, a merchant first encountered in the third chapter of Dragon Quest Ⅳ, where he wishes to make his store famous by venturing through mystery dungeons so he could retrieve valuable items to stock in his store.
