Mystery Dungeon (不思議のダンジョン ,Fushigi no Dungeon) is a series of roguelike games, most of which were developed by Chunsoft. These games are notable for being among the few console games in the roguelike genre. The series has inspired similar titles in Japan, most of which appropriate their game mechanics from Mystery Dungeon, rather than Rogue.

Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer was the second game in the Mystery Dungeon series, and became a series itself. The Shiren the Wanderer series of Mystery Dungeon games are the only games containing original characters. All of the other Mystery Dungeon titles utilize characters from other franchises.

Gameplay[edit]

Most of the Mystery Dungeon games center around exploring randomly generated dungeons and fighting monsters in a turn-based environment. Every action consumes a turn, rather than only battles being turn-based, so the movement of the player and monsters occurs in turns, and performing actions such as using items consumes turns as well. When the player's character dies, the character loses everything, except what they have stored in various pre-determined locations along the way, or in special container items.
