Creating NPC opponents

Now I'm still reading through my books and skimmed over the creating Npc section and had a question I was unable to find an answer to in the book.

Say I want to create an NPC that is to be my BBEG. I create him using the rules in the NPC section of the DMG. Can I now make him an Elite or Solo encounter? Or does that only count towards monsters and an NPC is just a regular NPC?

Thanks

You can definitely make him elite or solo. You do this by applying 1 template to make him elite and a second template to make him solo.

Your difficulty might be in terminology. The BBEG, while an NPC, is effectively also a monster. Therefore build him using the NPC rules, then apply the templates in the monster section and voila, you have an elite or solo BBEG NPC.
