One of the best parts about Rune Factory 4 Special is being able to tame bosses. Bosses are some of the best party members you can have, but the taming process is hard. If you want a boss for a companion, then you will need to put in a lot of work.

How do I tame bosses in Rune Factory 4 Special?

Taming works mostly the same for bosses. You can tame them with brushing and by giving them their preferred items. Remember that you can only tame bosses after you have already defeated them.
