After Ryu and co. free the Dreamworld, home of the Faeries, from the Nightmares and Fantam, the faeries will request help in rebuilding their home, as they've been gone so long that they no longer know how to take care of themselves. After assigning any number of faeries to the "hunt" job, once in a while, whenever a "?" spot appears, it may end up being a hunting ground for the faeries. In these cases, a single faerie will be overwhelmed by various animals, and desperately requests help. It is up to Ryu and co. to corral the animals and kill them with either Ryu's sword or Ursula's gun. The faster the animal is killed, the higher quality the meat will be, though what meat is obtained also depends on the animal in question (the white pig animals, for example, never drop meat higher than Roast, while the yellow/white ox-like one is the only animal that produces Loins). The types of meat include: Loins, Flank, Roast, and Ribs, with Loins as the highest-grade while Ribs are the lowest. It is imperative that the player kills the animals quickly, as if they run around too much while injured, the meat quality drops. Also, the higher grade the meat is, the more faeries it can feed, thereby quickly increasing the food parameter in the Faerie Village. The player is also welcome to take any of the obtained meat for themselves, as they all have healing qualities: Ribs recover 300 HP to one person, Roasts heal 500 HP to one person, Flanks restore 10 AP, and Loins heal 800 HP to all party members. The animals can, and often do, leave the area if left unattended for too long, so one has to be quick in order to obtain as much food as possible. The best strategy is to chase the animals into the pit trap that the faeries have made, making it easier to corner and kill them.
