Friendly Monsters

The friendly monster side quest involves locating a number of creatures around the world map in the forested areas. You can find each of them in any order that you prefer, however you cannot find the last Friendly Monster (Yan) until you have found all 8 of the other monsters. Finding Yan before you have found the others will cause it to run away.

When you encounter one of the friendly monsters listed below, it will ask you for an item of some type. You will have to select the “Item” command and ‘use’ the item on the monster.

Mister Nice Guy

You need to befriend each of the Friendly Creatures in the game in order to obtain the Mister Nice Guy Trophy. Normally, this trophy would not be missable, however, do keep in mind that you will need to have the required Jewels in your inventory to give to each of the Friendly Creatures. Be careful not to sell or synthesize too many of them!
