Rare Snurp (Japanese: 珍ピョン Rare Pyon) is a variant of the Snurp that can be found in the overworld map. They may disappear at any point during the battle. Rare Snurps have absurd defenses but only 5 HP; even high leveled Miis won't do any more than one damage unless high damage boosts (like something from assists) are applied.
Like most other Snurps, the Rare Snurp appears to be a small, armless, furry creature with a black head and snout. Under the Dark Lord's control, Rare Snurps also possess Mii eyes on their head. A Rare Snurp's fur is silvery white and is visibly shining and sparkling.

Tip: One way to bypass its absurd defense is to use Hyper Sprinkles to increase damage output. Even then, the result is never more than 3 damage per hit. Another way is by using the Vampire job's Curse ability to rebound half the damage to the Rare Snurp, which can kill it in one hit depending on the Vampire's defense and how much health the enemy has left. It also helps to use multi-hitting attacks such as the Thief job's Phantom Strike, as you will do at least 1 damage with every strike.
This Snurp can appear within Explorer Quests and Otherworld's Snurp Hunt, but these sources also produce Very Rare Snurps. However, if they are too hard or the party happens to see this one, take the opportunity.
A few strategies can be utilized to maximize the experience gained from a single Rare Snurp encounter:
- A very effective way to take out Very Rare Snurps and Rare Snurps with ease is to bring a Vampire that knows Curse and will take more than 30 damage from the attack of the Snurp (which can be done by setting the Vampire's clothing to their default Suit). Curse, since it ignores Defense and Magic, will instantly kill the Snurp if it attacks the Vampire.
- If the player has memorized the Speed stats of all their party members and know the order in which the players and monsters will take their turn, the player can abuse this knowledge by putting one of their Miis in the safe spot while the Rare Snurps are attacking, thus increasing the chance that the Snurp will attack the Vampire from 1/4 to 1/3.
- It is actually possible to keep Rare and Very Rare Snurps from disappearing by causing them to dance. This can be done with Earworm or Dancing Arrow. If you don't have an Elf but would like to use Dancing Arrow, you can bring the Youngest Fab Fairy to the level after accepting one of her Quests.
- Miis that can hit multiple targets at once with a single standard attack (Thief, Pop Star, Flower, or Vampire) are very effective as the amount of damage will always be 1, meaning that their attacks will be more efficient than all other classes who can only deal the same amount of damage to a single target per turn.
- A Pop Star Mii can indirectly do this as well by using Encore on one of the above Miis to give them a second turn.
- A Mii with Hyper Sprinkles will always deal 3 damage to the Rare Snurp instead of 1, regardless of level or stats. This can be combined with some of the above strategies to increase the overall damage dealt.
- The player can bring a Traveler NPC from the Travelers' Hub (such as the aforementioned Youngest Fab Fairy) to the stage to fight alongside the party, thus increasing the overall damage dealt.
- Clerics can potentially defeat Rare Snurps easily by using Righteous Anger, however this strategy is less reliable as it is more heavily dependent on RNG than the others listed here due to only having a 50% chance to succeed.
- Spicy Dish will always deal 4 damage to Rare Snurps and Very Rare Snurps, making it the single strongest attack that can be used against them. However, this strategy is also not very viable as it can easily lead to resentment and fighting within the party unless the Chef is a Traveler.
Note that these strategies only boost the chance to beat Rare Snurps; they can still run away from the fight in most scenarios.
- This enemy serves as Miitopia's version of the Metal Slime enemy found in many RPGs.
- This enemy also has the lowest HP out of any enemy, but the Defense and Magic make up for this.
