Personality[edit | edit source]

You mean to say you do not know Hamon Holyfist, the man who once ruled the bloodsands!? ...Hmmm, mayhap it was before your time. Aye, I used to be champion of the Coliseum, but these days I train young hopefuls as master of the Pugilists' Guild.

Hamon, in response to being asked about himself by the Adventurer

As a former Coliseum star, Hamon Holyfist is boastful and self-centered. Even when helping train students, Hamon thinks about his own agenda, be it sending his students around the city to pick up discarded gil or asking them to practice on training dummies in the middle of the street to draw a crowd. His penchant for skirtchasing often gets the better of him. He has a warm and caring side, which he displays when he speaks of his students, such as the two he personally adopted off the street, Chuchuto Brightstar and Rurukuta Tornstar. He takes great pride in the accomplishments of his students, such as the Warrior of Light, whom he refers to as the second coming of the Holyfist.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Boss[edit | edit source]

Hamon Holyfist is fought during the level 20 Pugilist quest. He tests the players' skill to rediscover his true self. Every time he is defeated, he will revive at full health, and a few levels higher. This repeats until the quest is concluded.

Hamon is fought again during the level 30 Pugilist quest, in the first duty. He must be defeated three times; the first time, the ability snap punch must be used three times to demonstrate the flow of the monk's combinations. The second and third times, Hamon must be defeated. Hamon grows stronger and in his third fight, will use the ability Hundred Fists to massively increase his attack speed.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the English translation, he makes a reference to the 1996 Doom comic during the level 15 quest "The Spirit Is Willing," quoting "These toads are huge, which means they have huge guts" and "Rip and tear through your foe with a Haymaker!"

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Hamon (刃文, Hamon?, lit. blade pattern) is a visual effect created on the blade by the hardening process.
