Pazuzu are a powerful A rank monster who you will need to synthesize Drakulard, Jamirus, and Night Clubbers. All of which are synthesizable monsters, thus it's no surprise that powerful X rank monsters require many Pazuzu to create. They can be synthesized or caught wild in the Dark World.

Recipe: Silvapithecus x Gigantes (Jamirus or King Squid can be used as well, but King Squid ends up in a rank decrease and in order to synthesize Jamirus you need Pazuzu, therefore it is wise to use Gigantes or just scout them)
