"Special deals for busy travelers. Do mew need anything?"

Neko (ニキータ Nikīta) is a recurring non-player character in the Mana series.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Neko is a large anthropoid cat covered in lavender and beige fur. Being a traveling merchant, he can easily be identified by the large bundle bag he carries behind him.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Neko is a shrewd salesman, often found selling sundries for double versus other shops. Nonetheless, he is as much a cat as a salesman, getting himself stuck in perilous situations by his curious nature. He frequently injects various cat vocalizations into his spoken dialogue, and in the 3D remake of Secret of Mana will replace certain words with the same cat sounds (e.g. "mew" replacing "you"). This also makes him prone to using various cat puns ("I'm taking advantage of this purrfect weather myself!").

Functions[edit | edit source]

Neko sells the Faerie Walnut from the start of the game, and as such is the only merchant to do so for roughly half of the quest. He also sells gear appropriate for the area in which he is found.
  • Recorder: Whether or not he provides an inn, Neko is also capable of saving the player's progress. This can be useful during long treks through complicated areas where an inn may be leagues away and/or a boss battle is upcoming.
