    Wonderland of Carbuncle (ワンダーランド OF CARBUNCLE) is a shooting game developed and originally published by Compile for the MSX2 computers, released in May 1991, featuring Carbuncle from the Madou Monogatari series as the main protagonist. It was available as a minigame bundled in Disk 1 of Disc Station #25 (ディスクステーション25号). In this game, Carbuncle needs to deliver apples from a tree safely from the hands of perilous villains, although multiple enemies (including Puyo Puyo enemies) will be shooting bullets towards Carbuncle. The game itself plays similarly to Centipede, although Carbuncle can survive some hits, but cannot get 1-Ups of any kind (the game allows the player continue with an infinite amount of times). Carbuncle can shoot heart-shaped white beams from his head and jump to avoid contact with the enemies and their bullets. After delivering the apples for birds, the boss appears with his head out of the tree, where Carbuncle must shoot him.

    In 2024, D4 Enterprise has re-released Wonderland of Carbuncle on Project EGG as a stand-alone game from the rest of Disc Station #25 content, with permission of Sega to use the character rights.
