The Monk is the Bruce Lee of Final Fantasy V. The Monk class doesn’t pack quite the wallop Bruce does. In the beginning of the game they’re fun and easy to use. You can kick weak enemies into next week. Later in the came kick is too weak to do much damage and you need some brass knuckles because your punches are awfully soft compared to the power of the legendary weapons. Their innate ability to counterattack makes them useful for tough enemies that use physical damage.
