Mononnofu has Shades of Black. Source: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/939426-final-fantasy-xii-international-zodiac-job-system/faqs/55516

Uh, why is this page titled Mononofu? I've never seen the Samurai in IZJS be called anything other than Samurai. Maybe Mononofu is what they call it in IZJS, but I'm pretty sure it's Samurai in English. That said, is this something that needs to be asked on Forum:Fan Translations?--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 16:40, January 30, 2015 (UTC)

We don't actually use the IZJS fanslation on the wiki. There's not that much new content to translate besides a few weapons (most weapons just add a letter to an existing one), a new license, some bosses who are the judges anyway, and the jobs. That's all I can think of.
The reason we probably call this Mononofu? Because it's not Samurai, if they wanted it to be Samurai they would have called it Samurai (侍)-- it's a Japanese word after all.
Mononofu probably has more of a cultural or additional meaning. We don't have much reason to ignore it when we can choose what to call it. 92.28.179.236 18:38, January 30, 2015 (UTC)
I feel that using IZJS translations rather than literal are more immediately helpful to the reader who has some English translation. Also, if we're going by literal Japanese with IZJS, aren't we being a bit inconsistent?--Magicite-ffvi-ios Technobliterator TC 18:41, January 30, 2015 (UTC)
