|Cid: Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Monk (Final Fantasy III) page!||Please expand this article into a full one. This can be done by making a 2D and 3D weapon/armor table like here. Equipment stats do not belong here since the weapons/armor should link to their respectable list of Final Fantasy III weapon/armor page.. This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page.|
Monks are very resilient melee fighters. Their Retaliate ability allows them to counterattack while on the defensive.
The bearer of this certificate has demonstrated supreme proficiency in the martial arts and is deemed worthy of the title of Master Monk.
The Monk (モンク, Monku?) 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.
- Command Ability - None
The Monk has no special command in this version. 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.
- Command Ability - Retaliate
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.
