Turma da Mônica em: O Resgate

Turma da Mônica em: O Resgate (lit. “Monica's Crew1) in: The Rescue”) is a retooled version of Monster World II: Dragon's Trap,2) that was published by Tectoy for the Master System in 1993,3) and it features an entirely reworked story with Turma da Mônica characters.


According to the game's instruction manual, Capitão Feio has trapped Mônica in the Land of Monsters, so Magali asks Franjinha to teleport the crew there. However, the machine can only teleport one person at a time, so when Mônica gets trapped after defeating the Mecha Dragon from the previous game,4) Chico Bento is teleported in. The rest of Mônica's crew gradually roll in, then all of them go fight Capitão Feio.


There are six playable characters in Turma da Mônica em: O Resgate. Below is a chart that shows off their Monster World II: Dragon's Trap equivalent form and the localized names for Turma da Mônica's cast if available.

Turma da Mônica was localized in English as Monica's Gang and, more recently, Monica and Friends. However, I've opted to use Monica's Crew instead because the localized names feel plain and unsatisfactory.
The original Japanese title was “Monster World II: Dragon's Trap” (モンスターワールドII ドラゴンの罠, Monsutā Wārudo II: Doragon no Wana), meaning that it was the second game in the Monster World series which itself was a spin-off to the Wonder Boy series. For some reason, it became “Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap” in English, despite the existence of Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair and it actually being the fourth Wonder Boy game as the following game was known as Wonder Boy V: Monster World III.
In short, Tectoy is a Brazilian toy company who struck a deal with Sega which allowed them to produce, publish, and distribute Sega's consoles and games in Brazil. Most of the Master System and Mega Drive's success in Brazil can be attributed to it being relatively inexpensive as it was produced locally, high import taxes made high-end consoles expensive, and they weren't in a rush to discontinue the consoles.
The previous game being Mônica no Castelo do Dragão (lit. “Monica in the Dragon's Castle”), a retooled version of Wonder Boy in Monster Land which is actually the second Wonder Boy game.
“Capitão Feio” literally translates to “Captain Ugly”, but is localized into English as “Captain Fray” instead.
