A common type of stock sidequest, where the hero must track down and kill a certain monster. This monster will often be stronger than the average encounters in the area, sometimes to the point of qualifying as a boss monster. Unlike a Mass Monster Slaughter Sidequest, this type of sidequest can easily fit thematically with a story, since it can be justified as the monster threatening nearby civilians. It also can provide more challenge and less Fake Longevity than both Mass Monster Slaughter Sidequest and Twenty Bear Asses and more excitement than a simple Fetch Quest. Supertrope to Bonus Boss. Subtrope of Sidequest. For quests to kill multiple monsters, see Mass Monster Slaughter Sidequest.
