SEED Crests (SEEDマーク, SEED maku) are a game mechanic introduced in Rune Factory 5. SEED Crests can be unlocked by joining Seed or capturing Wanted Monsters, with each crest giving the player a different ability or bonus, such as faster monster riding. At first only one SEED Crest can be equipped, though a second can be unlocked later.
