Bugbear (FFXI).png

Bugbears are Moblin slaves that have been bred specifically for guard duty and manual labor. Their arms, legs, and hearts have been physically enhanced, granting them prodigious strength. Bugbears have little capacity for language and speak few words, but they can perform a separate task with each hand thanks to the transplantation of an extra pair of eyes and an extra brain.

A bugbear is a legendary creature or type of hobgoblin comparable to the bogeyman and other creatures of folklore historically used to frighten disobedient children. The name is derived from a Middle English word bugge (a frightening thing), or perhaps the old Welsh word bwg (evil spirit or goblin), or old Scots bogill (goblin). In medieval England, the bugbear was depicted as a creepy bear that lurked in the woods to scare children. In a modern context, the term serves as a metaphor for something annoying often with a connotation that the loathing it inspires is disproportionate to its importance.
