Final Fantasy Music


Final Fantasy IX 9 Sidequests and Mini-games - Friendly Monsters

Occasionally when a random encounter is triggered, you may notice the battle music has changed from the default to something more calm and sweet. This is basically your cue to know you're in a battle against a "friendly monster." The creatue won't attack you, but will instead ask for an item. If you agree to give them the items, you'll recieve a reward of AP and an item or two. Nine of these "friendly monsters" can be found throughout the world of Final Fantasy IX.

Monster Location Request Reward
Brown Mu Plains/forest between Ice Cavern and Dali 1 Ore

10 AP
1 Potion

White Ghost Plains outside of Treno 1 Ore 10 AP
1 Hi-Potion
Color Ladybug Forest ouside Black Mage Village 2 Ores 20 AP
Green Yeti Large forest outside of Madain Sari 2 Ores 20 AP
Green Nymph Forest near Iifa Tree 3 Ores 30 AP
Purple Jabberwock Forest east of Oeilvert Emerald 40 AP
Green Feather Circle Lost Continent near Chocobo-track. Moonstone 30 AP
Lapis Lazuli
Rainbow Garuda Forest on the east near plateau after climbing rope inside Gizamaluke's Grotto Lapis Lazuli 40 AP
Friendly Yan Island south-west of Iifa Tree Diamond 50 AP
Rosetta Ring

Fighting the monsters in the order provided is strongly suggested; the rewards from the previous monster will help fulfill the requests for the next encounter. Also note that the Friendly Yan can not be "defeated" until you finish the requests from the other eight friendly monsters, he'll just run away.

So what do you get for supplying these friendly monsters with all these gifts? The AP is quite decent (be sure to equip Ability Up before the fights). Apart from that, once the quest is completed you'll gain a huge bonus for when you decide to fight Ozma: your range will be increased, so your phsyical attacks will be able to reach him.

"Non-friendly" Versions and the Gimmie Cat

It's possible to encounter the enemies listed above, but in "non-friendly" mode. The regular battle music will play, they won't request anything from you, and you'll just have to fight them like a regular enemy. There's also an enemy called a Gimmie Cat that will request a diamond from you. Do not give the diamong to the Gimmie Cat, you'll recieve nothing in return. As this isn't a friendly monster at all, the friendly music won't play. If you've accidentally given the Gimmie Cat your diamond, your best bet would be to restart the game without saving.
