Xenacanthus
Seafood
This massive predator has haunted the nightmares of Gyr Abanians for generations as the legendary "impaler of Timmon Beck," thanks to its centuries-old legacy of terrorizing smallfolk attempting to do their washing.
Drepanaspis
Seafood
Perhaps the greatest catch to be found at Grymm & Enid, the drepanaspis is so rare that, until now, no one was sure that one could be found at Grymm & Enid.
Stethacanthus
Seafood
The size of the growths on this stethacanthus indicate that it may be the oldest still in existence─and also why it has come to be known as the "Loch Seld monster."
The Ruby Dragon
Seafood
This legendary king of the deep is known to all who have ever come near the Ruby Price─and yes, it is a dragon. Or at least it quite closely resembles one.
Warden of the Seven Hues
Seafood
Though beautiful, this polychromatic carp ruled Prism Lake with an iron fin...until now.
The Unconditional
Seafood
Not so much a lord as a god of Dotharl Khaa, this particular specimen is thought to be a blessing sent by the Dusk Mother and Dawn Father themselves. As such, this catch might be best left unboasted of.

Wind-up Qalyana
Minion
She may or may not break through the borderline.

Use item to acquire the wind-up Qalyana minion.
Wind-up Redback
Minion
Don't tell mom the Kojin minion's red.

Use item to acquire the wind-up Redback minion.
Zephyrous Zabuton
Minion
More pushing for another cushion.

Use item to acquire the zephyrous zabuton minion.
Yojimbo Barding
Other
A suit of chocobo armor designed to resemble the...colorful...bodyguard known to some as "Jim."
Big One Festival Float
Outdoor Furnishing
Though this towering vehicle is meant for use in parades celebrating the Big One, a modern Namazu, rather than said venerable ancestor, is depicted atop it. Is this a means of increasing its appeal among the common Namazu, or simply the result of Gyoshin's brethren refusing to allow him to melt down any more koban to make large golden fish statues? Those who do not purchase A Meditation on the Metaphysics of Merrymaking may never know.
Ananta Metalworks
Tabletop
A number of beautifully detailed, opulent golden vessels created in honor of Sri Lakshmi.
