Sidequest Guide by WeekendRisktaker

======================  Ni no Kuni  =============================
================ Wrath of the White Witch =======================
==================== Quest List & FAQ ===========================

by WeekendRisktaker

This FAQ was written for the users on the Ni no Kuni board on
GameFAQs, many of whom are enjoying this wonderful game without
the slightest idea of what all that weird moon-language really 
means.  It is meant to be a stopgap until Ni no Kuni gets its
English release, at which time it will probably be overshadowed
by something more in-depth and better written.

Any translated material found within this FAQ is unofficial, and
mostly done to my own quirky standards. Not all translated names
will match 100% to their Japanese counterparts, and a few are
completely different just because I couldn't make it sound good
through straight translation.

If you need a specific quest, search for #number of the quest.
For the Mirant Quests, search for #M1, #M2, etc.

As of right now, this FAQ does not include any DLC material.

I also left out the rewards information for the non-hunting quests.
I might add it in at a later date.

Quests 1 - 40  The Heart Quests

In each of these quests, someone is missing a piece of their heart, 
which was stolen by Jabo.  These quests tend to become available 
in spurts, and almost always after a major plot sequence featuring
a particular type of heart (e.g. the King of Goronell and the 
Enthusiastic Heart).

Hearts can be found easily. Certain people throughout the game
possess enough of a surplus in one Heart type that it is 
possible to split a bit off with the spell Heart Piece (ハート
ピース)and then share it with the spell Heart Cure (ハートキュア). 
They show up as glowing dots on the Town Map, so they tend to stand out.

I'm using my own names for the Hearts. Some of them are easy to
translate into English, others (especially がまんの心) are pretty

やる気の心 	Enthusiastic Heart
がまんの心 	Temperate Heart

a pot in the cul-de-sac on the west side of Goronell's main
plaza (where the big statue is).

#42 生活に彩りを		A Life More Colorful
Location: Goronell
Go out of town and find two Spring Waters and two Highland
Flowers. Both can be won from enemies in the area, but it's
easier to gather them from the sparkling spots on the map just
east of town. One is by the lake east and north of Goronell, 
the other is up the slope of the mountain due east of town.

#43 痛いの痛いの飛んでいけ	Little Boys Lost

Location: Babanacia
10 groups of Kottsuhei (Skulldiers) are running loose in the

when you're done.

#47 道草トリオ			The Goodfeathers

A young boy is looking for his three pet pigeons, who have all
flown the coop.  Unlike other pigeons in town, they won't fly off
when you approach.

The Turmeric must be won from Quest #88 (a Hunt Quest), while the

haven't made it to that point in the story yet, you can't finish
this quest just yet.

#49 新作水着の材料		The Newest Fashion
Location: Bikkini
A young fashion designer needs some Colorful Leaves to make new
swimwear. To get them, you have to take out three Nattchi
(cactus-like guys in the desert) with ice spells. Take the
resulting quest items back to the quest-giver.

Location: Bikkini
Use the Talker spell to communicate with the blue crab in town. He
will ask you to find a friend of his whom he hasn't seen recently.

The crab is safe and sound on the Sours Islands, to the east of
Bikkini.  Find him at the far end of these sandy atolls, talk to 
him with the Talker spell, and then take his message back to the 
first crab in Bikkini.

#51 相方のハリセン		Fans for Fandom
Location: Dohton-Mori
A fairy in Dohton-Mori wants to help cheer his friend on as he 
strives to be a good stand-up comedian. For that, he needs some
folded-paper fans (harisen) that are a traditional prop for this
sort of comedy routine.

blinding them first with Sand Throw or Gyro's Smoke Shot, and you
will get the necessary items.

Location: Dohton-Mori
A fairy in Dohton-Mori wants ingredients for some cold remedy. 
Some backtracking may be necessary.

Sleepies (funny bird-things) in the Goronell area.
きれいな湧き水 (Spring Water): from the same gathering spot NE of
シャキールの葉 (Shakeel Leaf): Gyro can steal these from Pigouls
(bat-like Imajinn) on the fairy island. It is also possible to

(on the mainland)

Return all of these to the quest-giver for a reward.

#53 モエールの危機		A Forest in Jeopardy
Location: Moelle Forest
Prerequisite: Arrive at Dohton-mori
The quest-giver is a fairy who is standing near where the local
boss appeared previously. He wants you to defeat the Gangtoshishi
(strong, 3rd-tier boar-like enemies) who are rampaging through the
forest. There are five of them, accompanied by Tosshishi (the
2nd-tier boar-types).  Both Imajinn types are weak against fire.

After beating all five groups, return to the fairy to find him
about to get thrashed by an even stronger boar, the Bosstoshishi.
This is the other 3rd-tier form, and it's strong against fire
(but weak against water).  Time to save the day!

#54 ボーグに咲く花		Flowers for Bolg
Location: Bolg Empire
A woman just wants her flowers to bloom, but conditions under the
Empire's dome just aren't good for it.  

Use the spell "Mach Growth" (マッハ栽培) on the flowerpot. It won't
quite work. Then bring a サンサン (solar disc enemy from the
desert) to finish the job properly.

#55 新薬開発			Medical Necessity
Location: Bolg Empire
Prerequisite: Quest #10, "For My Sister"
The boy from Quest #10 needs a special mushroom for a medicine to
help his sister.  

You can find it in the forest on the coast to the west of Bolg.

forest guardian folk. One will trade you the mushroom for a 
Bunny Cake (バー二ケーキ) which can be stolen from several enemies 
on the fairy island.

#56 やっかいな海賊船		Unpleasant Pirates
Location: Bolg Empire
Prerequisite: Quest #55
The boy from the previous quests needs one more item for his sis,
but pirate ships have been delaying the cargo run from Bikkini.
Teleport back to Bikkini, rest up, and take the boat out for a bit
of pirate-trawling.  There are four ships en route between Bikkini
and Bolg. Most are crewed by DeadCrew, but the fourth one should
also have a DeadCaptain.

#57 飛行艇の修理		Busted Lifeboats
Location: Heburuchi's Hideout
One of Heburuchi's crewmen is trying to fix a busted part for one
of their flying lifeboats, but it's just too beat up. This one 
needs an expert...

Use the Gate spell to go back to Hotroit and get Claude to fix it
for you.  Return the now-pristine parts to the crewman.

#58 空賊のお守り		A Sky Pirate's Charm
Location: Heburuchi's Hideout
One of Heburuchi's crewmen is trying to mend his lucky charm, but
he needs Wind-Cutting Feather (風きりばね). If you don't have
one already, you can get one from the Birdners in the area around
the hideout, or from Sabannyers off-shore.

#59 1人でも大丈夫?		Okay Alone?
Location: Small cave east of Samura
In a little cave on the coast east of Samura there is the ghost of
a small girl.  Use Spiritalk to communicate with her. She wants to
move on, but she's worried that her Imajinn friend won't be able
to get by without her. Make sure you have an empty party slot when
you talk with her to get a Pyonkichi (3rd-tier Imajinn). Keep it
in your active party and return to the girl once it has gained 10
more levels. She'll be happy and will let you keep the Pyonkichi
with her blessing.

#60 ビッキニのビキニ		Bikinis from Bikkini
Location: Samura
Even though it's absolutely frigid there, one young lady in Samura
would really like a stylish bikini. When you go to talk to the
fashion lady in Bikkini, you'll find out that the last of those 3
bikinis she made (in Quest #49) was stolen by a seagull not long
before. It was flying west...

Take the ship to Sangon Island, due west from Bikkini, and find
the gull on the promontory of the island.  Use Talker to ask him
for the bikini. He just wanted it for nesting material, so it's
all the same for him.

Pass it on to the girl in Samura next time you see her.

#61 迷子をさがして		Missing Child Alert
Location: Samura
Prerequisite: Finish the Ice Caves plot event
There's a boy lost in the Ice Caves. Talk to the kid at the
entrance, then head in.  Up in the northwest corner of the cave
(should be visible as a blue dot on the map), you will find the
boy being menaced by a GigaWater and three Blue Alabbins.  They are
all weak against fire, so torch 'em.

#62 夢で見た花			Dream Flower
Location: Reka
A girl in Reka Village keeps seeing a beautiful flower in her
dreams. It's not like anything she has ever seen before. Shizuku
figures that she's getting visions from her soul-double in Ichi no
Kuni (Hotroit).  Use the Gate spell to go there. Near Oliver's 
house there will be a little girl and a wilted flower.  Use the
Turn Back Time spell to restore the flower, talk to the girl to
get her permission, then take the flower back to Reka.

#63 腰痛の特効薬		My Aching Back!
Location: Reka
The old man by the Quest Shop is experiencing back problems, and
he would like a special medicinal pack from Samura.  Talk to a
snow man in Samura about it (the Powder Snow Pack), and he'll do
it on request if you can get him the ingredients. 

To get the ingredients, you have to defeat a Gachi-Gachidon 
(found west of town) with a fire attack. Easiest done by buying
a Burning Sword (バーニングソード)in Samura and putting it on a 
strong attacker. You need 5 of them.

#64 グルメなルパカ		The L'Paca Gourmet
Location: Reka
Use Talker to communicate with the l'paca near the front gates.
He's heard of a lot of interesting foods, but never had a chance
to try any. He wants you to get some regional delicacies for him.
Odds are you might have most of these just from random enemy

1 each of:
Babanas (Babanacia)
Firefly Shrimp (Bikkini)
Black Truffle (Bolg)
Snow Radish (Samura)

Bon appetit!

#65 犯人を追え!		Thieftaker
Location: Goronell
Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Goronell" plot events.
A monster has stolen a macguffin from one of Goronell's citizens.
You have to follow the footprints on the world map outside the 
city.  They aren't always obvious from one angle, so be sure to
rotate the field camera from time to time.  Each time you check
a set of prints, you'll be given a new direction (generally north
or west) to search for new prints.  There ARE two false trails,
however, so watch out.

The true trail leads to the far west end of the kingdom. You 
will have to use the Bridge Builder spell to open the way across
the valley (if you haven't done so already). 

The real thief is a Majin Igni (weakness: water).

#66 理想のモデル		The Perfect Model
Location: Babanacia
Prerequisite: Finish the "Ashes Fall on Babanacia" plot events
Babanacia's resident artist (remember him?) is in search of the 
perfect model.

modeling a try, and she even fits the idiosyncratic desires of
the artist.

There's a guy in town who just can't stay awake. He even falls

Location: Moelle Forest
Prerequisite: Complete the main game

The fairy in Moelle Forest wants to get all of his buddies back
now that the forest's darker forces have been quelled. Talk to him

the main fairy again learn the next hint. Repeat until all four
are found.

Fairy 1: "Near a big skull..." Teleport to Heburuchi's Hideout, 
head due south. The fairy is near one of the barricades on the
slope, on the hideout's side. He's kind of small and easy to miss
if you aren't really looking.

Fairy 2: "Cold, wet, frogs...?"  This one is in Narklehat Ruins,
a.k.a. the Frog Prince's Palace. The fairy is easily visible as
a blue dot on the dungeon map.

scary metal things running around"  Use Gate to go to Hotroit. The
fairy is at Mark's garage.

mountains east of Bolg. There's a skeleton mining the area, and
the fairy is keeping him company.

and a little east of Samura.  There is a guardians forest in the
middle of the island. The fairy is talking to the guardian girl

#70 海賊王の宝

Prerequisite: Complete the main game

There's a boy in Bikkini who has gotten his hands on a treasure
map. He asks you to help him track the locations down.

Each of these will bear a short inscription from the pirates, and
two Astram symbols. The first symbol is part of a message, the 
second is a number. Use the second symbols to put the first
symbols in the right order. Talk to the boy in Bikkini after
you've checked all these spots. Translate the symbols, put them 
in order, and input the correct word.



Heburuchi the 3rd

After this, go and talk to Heburuchi on his airship to learn more
about his ancestor. Finally, go to the island in the far NE corner
of the map and check the marker there. It's not readable, so use
the spell Turn Back Time to return it to its previous state.Read
it, then go back to Bikkini to talk to the boy and conclude the

Quests 71 - 75 are all done for the Imajinn Professor, and all
but one of them involve catching Imajinn.  It is recommended that
you read ahead a bit and catch a few in advance, if possible.

#74 更なるイマージン		Even More Imajinn!
Location: Reka

This quest calls for 3rd-tier Imajinn. If you've already got the

アギドラン	Golden Agidoran in the Ice Caves
ゴブヒン	Golden Gobuhin in the Lake of the Dead. Fairly
		common, and probably your best bet. The Japanese
		FAQs report a decent level of success.
ジャームス	Golden Jams in the Ghost Valley. Not a common thing
		to encounter, and only seems to show up with lower-
		level creatures.  Scrolls are a rare item on them,
		and technically should be stealable, but with a 
		REALLY low success rate. Also carries Tears of the

Rainbow Fossil:
ネルドラン	Golden Neldran in the Ice Caves. Reportedly the best
ゴブヒンチーフ	Golden Gobuhin Chief at the Lake of the Dead. Also
		carries Tears of the Earth.

My Japanese source apparently raised a party from level 65 to 99 in
the process of getting 5 of each of these.  If you do, then you 
deserve congratulations.  This is really hard.

Alternately, it's possible to win some of these materials off the
Master of the World (ultimate boss in Quest #131, repeatable), but
that isn't exactly easy either.

Quests 79 to 85 all involve the same traveling gentleman who has
the worst luck when it comes to holding onto his travel journal.
He is always dropping it in secluded spots, and it's up to you to
find the damn thing over and over again.  Each quest is required for
the next one to appear.

This last time, he's dropped it in the forest known as the Heart of
the World.  If you haven't activated Quest #131, this is the same
place where you can do that. Look around the red mushroom by the

The quests after this point are all Hunt Quests.  The player can
sign up for these at the Quest Store, and must go back to the 
store to reap the rewards.  For the most part, the target monsters
will show up as blue dots on the local maps, but not on the main
world map.

Regular enemies that appear in hunts may drop items or have items 
to steal.  Legendary monsters (mini-boss types) do not.

#131 世界の案内人 		The World Guide
Location: The Heart of the World
Prerequisite: Finishing the main story

This is the most convoluted quest in the game, mainly because in
order to complete it you must do the preceding 15 quests, stopping
to talk to the World Guide every few quests.

The World Guide can be found in a wood that is impossible to reach
by air. To get there, head due south from Goronell and a little 
west, towards Moelle Forest. Explore the forested area that abuts
the mountains (but east of the actual entrance to Moelle) to find
a cavelike passageway. You can follow this all the way into the
southern part of the Mid Continent (near the Temple of Spirits)
and ultimately to the Guide's Wood.  He's the bunny-headed gentle-
man standing next to the big gate.  Once you've stopped all of
the "rips in the seams of reality" (as he seems to call them), the
gate will open, and you can face the ultimate boss of the game--
the Master of the World.

Good luck.

===================== Mirant the Ghost Boy ====================

In the DS version, Mirant's challenges were all proper sidequests,
but in the PS3 version you have to go and find them on your own.

He appears in various towns throughout the game. You first meet him
at the large grave marker to the east of of Goronell Castle in 
Goronell. You need to use the Spiritalk spell every time you meet 
him in order to communicate.

Quest #M1: Babanacia, near the Milk Fountain
This question involves the story of the "The Lion King" It's the 
first chapter of the Stories section of Magic Master (p. 266 in the
print version)

precis: The young prince Tamaro doesn't believe he can be a good 
king, so he runs away from home. He comes upon a lion and gets eaten. 
From inside the lion's stomach, he tells the great cat that he is now 
the king. The new lion king moves into the castle and becomes a good 
ruler. But not long after, the kingdom is attacked by two dragons,  
the Dragon of the West (にしのりゅう) and the Dragon of the East 
Using the same logic (?) as before, Tamaro directs the Lion to get 
himself eaten by the Dragon of the West, who is the greater of the 
two. They then inform the dragon that IT is now the king. As such, 
it must go defeat the other dragon.

Hey, it's a fairy tale. It doesn't need to make much sense.

The question: Tamaro, Lion King, Nishi no Ryuu, Higashi no Ryuu, which
one is the biggest?
The answer: The Dragon of the West. にしのりゅう.

Quest #M2: Bikkini Town, on one of the bridges.
This question involves the Astram language in the back of the book. 
Look at p. 13 in the book, where there is a picture of a magician. 
You need to transcribe the Astram symbols into Japanese. Ignore the 
bit coming out of his mouth, that's just a bit of graffiti. The right 
message is sewn into his robe.
The answer: さいこうきゅう (the highest level of ability)

Quest #M3: Douton-mori (Fairy town), in the clearing before you 
get to Big Mamma. This time, he's talking about hamburgers.
I'm not sure how to phrase the question in English, but the answer is 
"the freshest of ingredients": i.e. crispy lettuce (パリパリレタス)

Quest #M4: Bolg Empire, near the front of the city, overlooking 
the great avenue. The question: In the middle of Magic Master (PS3 
version p212-3, print version p216-7) is a two-page spread showing the 
Great War. How many mechanical Imajinns are pictured therein? The chapter
on mechanical Imajinn starts on p. 202 in the PS3 version, or p. 206 
in the print version.

The answer: There are five mechanical Imajinn pictured therein. The 
answer is 5. Just the number. Nothing else special about it.

Quest #M5: Samura Town, in the Elder's House
The question: Has to do with flowers found in the region.
The answer: Magic Master p. 139. Which item looks most like a flower? 
Ice Flower. Answer is "アイスフラワー" Don't forget the dash at the end.

Quest #M6: Reka Town, inside the Quest Shop
The question: In the section of Magic Master called "Various Regions and 
Realms" various Astram symbols are used. But there is one that 
is only used once. What does it designate?
The answer: All the maps use Astram numerals to denote the major
areas. Most maps use only four or five of them, but the map of 
the southern Mid Continent has six. #6 is Mt. Decarock. Type in 

Quest #M7: Goronell Town, same place as before, after the Ashes event.
The question is written on the tombstone. It's written in Astram, and is
annoying to figure out. Let's skip to the answer.
Take the first two runes, Gate and Imajinn. Take the black lines in their 
stroke orders (as viewable in the book), and combine them. 
Which spell do you get?

The answer: Rune # 45, Summons. Type in "しょうかん"

Quest #M8:  The Place of Memories in Moya
Only happens after finishing the main story
The question:  There are twelve evil men in the forms of beasts. 
One of them may be found in Magic Master, or his raiment at least.  
If you look on p. 118 of the in-game Magic Master (or p.103 of the 
print edition), you will find a piece of clothing that looks just 
like what Shazarl was wearing as the Elder Duke of the Ox. 

It is called まどうしのほうい, and that is the answer.

============================ Credits ====================================
First to Level-5 and Studio Ghibli, for making this game

Then to Bandai-Namco, for its plans to bring it to the US

Next to Dragon Quest 7 on the GameFAQs boards, for providing some info
on Mirant

Last to  MelanieUK, Eddysugihartono, and Megami84 at GameFAQS, for
asking so many questions about these quests that I finally got tired
of answering them all and decided to make this guide instead.
