MVP stands for Most Valuable Player, a definition not exclusive to Ragnarok Online. This is a monster with Boss Protocol and MVP Protocol. MVPs are much stronger than other normal monsters and appear on an array of maps throughout the game. MVPs only spawn at certain times, anywhere from once per hour to once every 24 hours since the last MVP of that kind was killed. While MVPs can be defeated by a single person (depending on the class of the player), they are most often taken down by a party of two or more players. Because of the difficulty of defeating an MVP, they give a high amount of experience and MVP rewards given directly to the player's inventory to the player who tank and deals the most damage to it. If the player get killed as the MVP dies, and there's no one else eligible for the reward on the map, someone is randomly selected on the map and receives it. They are also free-for-all, meaning that anyone can attack them, disregarding who found it first or summoned it. First hit on the MVP is only important for loot priority, not the MVP reward.

MVPs will also summon slaves or mobs to make defeating the MVP more difficult. The mob will often times consist of three to nine monsters, sometimes all of them the same, sometimes different, depending on the MVP. Unlike normal monster, MVP doesn't show health bar. To check its remaining HP, the player can use Sense.


When killed, MVPs not spawned by a player (e.g. Ktullanux, see Special Spawn section) will leave behind a Tomb at the spot in which they were killed. Speaking to the Tomb yields the MVP's time of death, along with the name of the player who received the MVP award for killing it. The Tomb does not give information as to the time or location the MVP will spawn next time. The time given is in PST.

Normal MVPs

Normal MVPs spawn a set amount of time after the previous one was defeated. For example, if Amon Ra is defeated at 11:00, it would spawn again at 12:00. If an MVP spawns in multiple places, the two times are independent of one another and the respawn period may be different. Below is a list of all normal MVPs, where they are located, and the time that needs to elapse before it will respawn.
