|Master of Nu'un|
|Dragon Quest IX|
Master of Nu'un is a monster in IX.
Master of Nu'un is a result of Abbot Jack eating a golden fygg. The party finds him at the Tower of Trades, where they witness the transformation before their eyes. After defeating him, he turns back to normal, and doesn't remember his evil ways, which consisted of the Abbot desiring to command his flock through fear and tyranny. Once the battle is over, Abbot Jack returns to Alltrades Abbey and grants the player and their party to change vocations.

|Description: Jack of Alltrades ate a fygg that had fallen from above in a bid to become god-like, but turned into this hideous beast instead.
Jack spent some time thinking up his god name, toying with 'High Jack' and 'Jackrilege' before setting on 'Master of Nu'un'.
|Woosh, Drain Magic, Buff|
|Tower of Trades|
You only really need to be level 18-20 to defeat the Master of Nu'un. He can attack twice per turn and uses a physical attack, Swoosh (which has a high haywire rate) and a Lightning attack that hits the whole party for moderate damage. He can also use Drain Magic, so you may want a couple of Magic Waters handy in case he steals from your Priest or Mage, and he can cast Buff on himself, so a Mage with Sap is nice to counter that.
When he is not buffed, your physical attackers should attack him, and your Mage can use the Fire or Ice spells, as they are your best ways to damage him with magic. When he is buffed, a Warrior or Martial Artist cannot do much, but your Minstrel can use Crack or (if it is available) Crackle to damage him, until a Mage can Sap him, or the effect wears off.
As long as you have a Priest with Heal or Midheal, and your Minstrel to help out with recovering from AoEs, the fight is easy enough; if your Priest is Level 18 or above, you will have Zing, just in case.
