to use this FAQ on your Website or page, please email me for permission
(akaiscarlet@hotmail.com) Go to www.njstar.com to get the Japanese text to
display how it would on the game (or use some other kind of Japanese text
viewing program).

This FAQ is for anyone who has a Wonderswan Color and Final Fantasy IV for it,
and would like to know what the heck all the names of items, magic, characters,
or monsters are.  I assume you already know the game, so there are very few
actual strategies in this FAQ.  There are already a few at Gamefaqs already
made, so view one of those if you need direction on where to go.

The newest updates will always be at Gamefaqs.

In pretty much all of the lists, the order of what things are in will be:
Japanese Kana that appears onscreen/romanized version/my translation.


First up are the options at the title screen.

ニューゲーム-Nyu-ge-mu (New Game) Starts a new game.
ロードゲーム-Ro-doge-mu (Load Game) Continue off of a saved game (up to 8      
       different files can be saved).
さいかい-Saikai (Resume) Load a game that was saved using the
         ちゅうだん-Chuudan (Interrupt/Quick Save) option.


The default name for the characters in the game are:

セシル: Seshiru (Cecil)
カイン: Kain (Cain)
ローザ: Ro-za (Rosa)
リディア: Ridia (Rydia)
シド: Shido (Cid)
ギルバート: Giruba-to (Gilbert)
テラ: Tera (Tella)
ヤン: Yan (Yang)
エッジ: Ejji (Edge)
パロム: Paromu (Palom)
ポロム: Poromu (Porom)
フースーヤ: Fu-su-ya (Foo-Soo-Ya)

In most towns there is a strange cat-like creature wearing a yellow hat.  It's
name is ネミングウエイ: Neminguuei (Namingway).  Speak to it if you would like
to change a character's name.

Two choices will pop up; they are かえる: Kaeru (Change) and かえない: Kaenai
(Don't Change).  Choose the character whose name you wish to change.

On the left side of the screen there are five options to choose.  They are:

ひらがな: Hiragana (Hiragana Characters)
カタカナ: Katakana (Katakana Characters)
ABC: English letters
しょきか: Shokika (Default)
おわり: Owari (End)

When the naming prompt appears, use this chart to pick the name you want, if
you want to change them (or just use the English letters).  A character's name
can be up to 6 characters/letters.
