This game has a prerelease article
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is Dragon Quest meets Minecraft... again. Also involves something about some twerp befriending a freshly-revived God of Destruction, but that's probably not important.

Aquarium DLC Unused Items
The Aquarium DLC added fish into the game and there are icons for four fish, these four fish lack 3D models, only leaving the inventory graphic.
Unused Item Icons
There are graphics for both completely unused items as well as for used items that are never given the opportunity to use icons for various reasons. There are also some that appear to be earlier versions of used icons.
Misc. Unused Graphics
Battle Atoll will need a dedicated section (maybe even subpage) when the entire actual area is documented.
An unused graphic for a location on the world map that is never visited or unlocked by any released DLC exists.
Builderpedia Monster Icons
There are several unused icons for the game's monster "dex".
The Goregon is an enemy from Dragon Quest II and a recolor of Madusa, a boss that does appear in this game. Pazuzu and Belial were underlings of Hargon in Dragon Quest II; while both do (barely) appear in this game, they're never added to the Builderpedia.
Zoma, the final boss of Dragon Quest III, does not appear in this game in any fashion whatsoever.
Various labels for menus and general notifications/popups are present in the English version that remain untranslated.
Hargon is intended to function as a cutscene prop during the fight with true form Malroth, and is out of bounds of the playable space. However, the player can damage him with the fire sword's long range attack. It is possible to reduce Hargon's health to the point where he will play a "defeated" animation where crouches down. This has no effect on the fight with Malroth or cutscenes.
