—Mastery certificate description

The Monk is a job class in Final Fantasy III. It is gained from the Wind Crystal. Monks are highly proficient in the martial arts. Although they are only able to equip claws and knuckles, they are highly adept at using their bare hands in combat. Armor selection is also limited. The amount of damage that this class deals to the target depends of the type of enemy that the monk attacks, ranging from large amounts to small amounts. Raising the Job Level of a Monk will raise his/her bare handed attack by 2.

AbilitiesEdit

NES versionEdit

  • Command ability - None

The Monk has no special command. Depending on job levels, s/he gets a boost from just physically attacking with no weapon equipped. Once the Black Belt (Karateka) job is unlocked, this job loses its usefulness.

3D remake versionsEdit

When Retaliate is chosen, the Monk will counterattack for 2x damage if they are hit until their next turn, and will also increase their defense for the turn it is used by an amount equal to their current Defense + Job Level. Works on multiple enemies.
