ドラゴンクエスト - ダイの大冒険
当然 - とうぜん - natural; as a matter of course
将来 - しょうらい - future (usually near); prospects
は - topic marker particle
立派 - りっぱ - splendid; fine; handsome; elegant; imposing; prominent; legal; legitimate; great
勇者 - ゆうしゃ - hero; the brave; man of valour (valor)
に - Indicates such things as location of person or thing, location of short-term action, etc.
なる - to become; to get; to grow; to be; to reach; to attain (within this context)
この - this (something or someone close to the speaker (including the speaker), or ideas expressed by the speaker)
島 - しま - island
の - indicates possessive (within this context)
平和 - へいわ - peace; harmony
を - indicates direct object of action (within this context)
守る - まもる - to protect; to guard; to defend (in this case, 守りたい means to want to protect, and is formed by adding たい after the masu stem of a verb. For ichidan verbs, たい is added to the stem and no alterations are needed [for example, 食べる becomes 食べたい, to want to eat], whilst for yodan verbs the last kana of the verb needs to be modified to the nearest い sound [for example, 飲む becomes 飲みたい, to want to drink, or as in the example, 守る becomes 守りたい, to want to protect]).
Of course, in the future I want to become a great hero and protect the peace of this island!
