Ultimania map of all Rare Game locations.

Rare Game (レアモンスター狩り, Rea Monsutā Kari?) is a type of enemy in Final Fantasy XII.

ProfileEdit

Rare Game are stronger versions of normal enemies, often larger with some sort of visual effect, such as an aura of mist. They do not spawn as regular enemies do, and require the player to fulfill certain conditions to make them appear, such as killing an amount of enemies in the area, waiting in an area a period of time, and so forth. Once spawned, Rare Game enemies do not respawn when killed, the player must leave the area and return, and meet their spawning requirements again. This can be subverted with the Zone Out Glitch. Rare Game enemies are a source of rare loot and other valuable items, which can variably be stolen, poached, or dropped by them.

There are also a separate type of Rare Game known as Trophy Rare Game. Trophy Rare Game do not respawn under any circumstances once killed, and when killed the player will receive a trophy as a key item. These trophies may be traded in at the Hunt Club on the Phon Coast by giving them to any of the three bangaa: Atak, Blok, and Stok, for weapons, protectives or accessories and items respectively. Trophy Rare Game do not spawn until the player joins the Hunt Club and defeats their first Trophy Rare Game, the Thalassinon. Thalassinon's trophy does not count towards the trophy totals of the bangaa brothers.

There is a bangaa nearby the vendor of goods that when spoken with will tell the player the location where rare game has been sighted. Also, the Hunt Club's Owner on Highgarden Terrace in Archades will give the player Zodiac Gems for finding trophy monsters. Access to Highgarden Terrace is granted after getting a Sandalwood Chop from the Chop Collecting subquest.

There are forty-nine Rare Game spread throughout Ivalice, in addition to thirty-one which are Trophy Rare Game, for a total of eighty.
