This is what Dragon Quest: Dai's Adventures is about:
The world once suffered under the rule of the Dark Lord Hadlar, but a heroic swordsman slew him and restored peace. Many years have passed and the monsters, no longer under Hadlar's control, live peacefully on a remote island. This is where Dai grows up, who is the only person on the island who wants to become a bringer of light himself one day. But everything changes when the Dark Lord rises again, and Dai must embark on a great adventure to become the Lightbringer he always wanted to be!
