The Nue is a Japanese Monster with a monkey's head, a racoon's body, a tiger's limbs, and a snake-like tail. A Nue was discovered inside of a cave that contained a gem necessary for spinning magical thread. When they encountered it, the Magic Shop Owner mentioned that Nue's generally come from the East of Melromarc. Although Naofumi wanted to avoid fighting it and simply return later, Firo recklessly attacked it. Nues are capable of lightning magic.
