"The martial arts of the master monk are without equal."
Master Monk is a Job in Final Fantasy Tactics A3, usable by the Bangaa only. It is an upgrade of the White Monk Job, and is able to perform various up-front actions, such as bypassing an enemy's counterattack with Cross-Counter, while dealing massive damage at the same time, and attacking twice in one turn with Pummel. Although Master Monks can wield poles, their attack is far superior when bare-handed (with the exception of the weapon Whale Whisker, which will raise Attack by 17), comparable to that of Gladiators, Snipers or Dragoons. Their healing abilities far surpass that of White Monks, and this makes them ideal fighters on the front lines, especially since they can equip two shields with the Shieldbearer Passive ability, which when coupled with their naturally high Evasion can mean they are able to have a 50% hit probability rate. This is saying nothing on the fact that their Attack power is far stronger when not equipped with any weapons. A downside should be mentioned that they do not have a good ranged game, as they have only two ranged attacks, one with 50% Accuracy or less, and the other stands two square in front of them. For this reason they are often paired with white monk as a secondary job.
