Unique monsters offer a lot of rewards if you manage to take them down. Be careful, they do require a bit of strategy to take on so just winging it won’t do.

After you defeat a unique monster, it will leave behind a gravestone. These gravestones mark the area where you killed the monster so you can spot them when you return to areas later on in the game. Interact with a gravestone by pressing the A button. This will bring up a menu.

In the menu, select the retry option to challenge the foe once more. Not all unique monsters can be re-fought. Enemies marked as unique that appear in the story will either make a return on their own or remain defeated with no chance of re-fighting them.
