Kum Kum, also known as Qumqum in the NES version, is an enemy from Final Fantasy III. These monsters can be summoned into battle by Blucks. They can be found on the bottom floors of the Crystal Tower.
At this point in the game, the Kum Kum should present little challenge to the player. However, these ghost-like creatures can provide a significant EXP boost if manipulated correctly. Blucks will continue to summon them so long as the Bluck itself does not die. In an encounter with a Bluck, allow it to constantly summon Kum Kums without killing it. Depending on how long the player keeps the cycle going, a substantial amount of EXP can be gained.
In the NES version however, the Qumqum is much more of a problem. Encountering parties of three will make them harder to kill, since they have a decent chance of casting Death for an Instant Kill. Stocking up on Softs is recommended too, as they can use Brak2 if not killed quickly enough.
