Nemeses are obtained at random intervals, as well as sent by other players via Streetpass. Defeating a Nemesis causes it to disappear, and if the Nemesis was obtained via StreetPass, causes a villager to appear in Norende.
The several variations of Nemeses include, but are not be limited to, bosses from Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light: Leviathan, Beelzebub, Mammon, Asmodeus, Belphegor, Satan and Lucifer. In addition, there are harder versions of boss fights from Bravely Default: Nobutsuna Kamiizumi, Holly Whyte & Barras Lehr together, Lord DeRosso & Victor S. Court, Ciggma Khint with either Chairman Profiteur or Jackal, and Automata. These fights are level 99 (except the Khint fights which are level 30), and they will have differing names on the Norende Village screen. Finally, there are the Ba'al Nemesis; which include the Ba'al i; Turtle Dove and Ba'al iv; Goldie. There is no previous example of these bosses. This, combined with their unique style and music, as well as Magnolia Arch referring to herself as a "Ba'al Buster", were previews of Bravely Second: End Layer.
Nemesis bosses will drop stat-increasing items called "Buns". Lower level Nemesis will drop single stat buns that increase single stats, while the stronger, rarer Nemesis will drop Unearthly Buns which increase all stats. Once a type of Nemesis has dropped a type of bun the drop rate is much lower when encountered again.
Of special note is Mammon, who has a chance of carrying a special kind of Elixir. This variety cannot be used in compounding and costs more than regular Elixirs. This item is worth 25,000 pg, making repeatedly stealing it and running away without defeating Mammon one of the best ways of making money. Using the Thief ability "Rob Blind" will net 2 Elixirs instead of 1, ultimately speeding things up. This version of Mammon stopped being distributed by Square Enix, however it can still be sent by other players, as long as those players do not defeat it.
