Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Epic Battle Fantasy is a series of flash games developed by Matt Roszak (AKA "Kupo707", which was changed to "Kupo Games" sometime around the release of EBF4). It consists of three individual series: the main Epic Battle Fantasy series of Eastern RPGs (consisting of five games), as well as two spin-offs.The main Epic Battle Fantasy series is your standard turn-based RPG, with not too much deviation from the standard system, at least initially. What makes the game stand out more is its style: the world of the series is an Anachronism Stew with the Fantasy Kitchen Sink in effect, and so throughout all the games, you'll be fighting off enemies like cats, slimes, catslimes, giant insects, turtles, robots, monoliths, dragons, and many others, using weapons ranging from traditional magic to airstrikes and boomboxes. Also present in the series are dozens of Shout Outs, numerous lampshades, and gameplay that requires taking use of what would be Useless Useful Spells in other games.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

comment
Actually Four Mooks: Any enemy encounter in these games is represented by a single enemy, meaning that harmless-looking bush could actually contain a four-wave (or longer) marathon battle (*cough* Battle Mountain *cough*). Fortunately, each encounter usually shows the strongest monster fought in said encounter, thus lowering the number of bad surprises.

 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_15da4941
comment
Badass Adorable: NoLegs the cat goes One-Man Army on whole zerg rushes of enemies during the bonus stages of EBF2, and is top tier in Bullet Heaven. He is also a usable summon in EBF4 that strikes all enemies and is fantastically useful in the early game, though tougher enemies later on make him somewhat obsolete. Though there's the Kitten Fort summon, where he returns leading a wagon-fortress, and is much more useful, by way of giving you a buff that staves off One-Hit Kill effects, on top of running the enemy over. Even better, NoLegs can auto-summon himself in between turns, and does this regularly, without any equipment restrictions or requirements, making him a constant source of damage. He becomes a full-blown party member in EBF5. Meow Meow, a recurring character who wields a sword bigger than any other in the game, and does massive amounts of damage. He slightly resembles Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VII, but that's just his cape and sword. His sword can also break in his attack, doing more damage but also hurting you.

Breather Level: Variant with waves.

The Final Boss of 4 has three out of seven waves like this, and you're going to need them.

Breaking the Fourth Wall
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_1e7487cd
comment
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Many instances in the third and fourth games. In the first secret area of the third game, Lance speculates that the author was too lazy to add a background. In the second game, when Natz does her Limit Break and thus gets a jiggly close-up, she then has a chance to comment "That's enough Fanservice for now." Upon encountering jellyfish enemies for the first time: In the fourth game, while Natalie objects to killing a woolly mammoth in Winterfall, she's okay with it in Battle Mountain, since that's a bonus area and it doesn't matter what the party does there. All over the place in the fifth game, with Matt the primary offender. It's actually played for Nightmare Fuel at certain points; in particular, the party beg you not to make them fight the boss of the final glitch area, and the Final Boss is aware of your existence and talks to you, and when he is defeated, he says that he will find a way to materialize in the real world.

Cute Kitten: Everywhere. NoLegs. The (also legless) cats you fight. Meow Meow is the only cat with legs (but apparently only in battle). They even find their way onto all four of the Bullet Heaven bosses, as well as a few in the sequel. Godcat (the 4th of the EBF 3.3 bosses) is coming back for EBF4. And is once again the Final Boss, being revealed to have literally created the world.

comment
Bag of Spilling: Each entry resets the party's gear, for different reasons each time. Justified in the third game, where doing something stupid makes the heroes lose all their equipment and get depowered. Used again in the fourth game, but this time no justification is given. Matt is even shown carrying a huge sack of loot when he's introduced, yet in the following scene, he has nothing but his clothes and the sword on his back. (Maybe Anna confiscated it or something, who knows.) Justified in the fifth game, since the series is soft-reset.

Limit Break
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_2afb1a9
comment
Natalie's "Kyun" Limit Break was hit hard with the nerf gun in EBF4. Specifically, in the second and third games, it heals all players, buffs their attack, magic attack, defense, and magic defense by up to 50% while debuffing the same stats of the enemies. In 4, it loses the ability to debuff! However, EBF5, as well as renaming it to "7th Heaven" and changing the animation, buffs it again by making it affect all living allies in backup, which doesn't happen in 4. And it makes Natalie lovable, thus unable to be targeted by single-target attacks.

Awesome, but Impractical
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_2bdae2ae
comment
Awesome, but Impractical: Matt's Soul Eater sword, which greatly boosts his physical attack at the cost of large cuts to everything else. It's just not worth it on most difficulties, at least not without extensive upgrading (in the third and fourth games). The Catastrophe summon in the first game, which most people recommend using once in the entire game, to deal the last blow to the final boss, because it nearly kills Natalie when used. Ion in the second game does damage to both party members, though the damage isn't quite as bad. The two self-damaging limit breaks in 3 are pretty tame by comparison, especially since you're already spending your whole limit bar and want to get as much bang out of that turn as possible. The Annihilate Limit Break supposedly has a "high chance" of inflicting Death to every enemy onscreen. Naturally, all bosses are immune, most stronger enemies are also immune, and against standard mooks, it's just a waste. The Black Hole Limit Break is about as dangerous to your party as it is to the enemies. The Nuke too, especially in EBF5, where it swaps the current weather for Radiation, which has a chance to lower the maximum HP of any player character on the battlefield. Bombs in the Bullet Heaven series are powerful, but using one will lower your score, which is important for several achievements. It's especially harmful in the sequel, where getting a perfect wave requires not using bombs; since perfect waves give out hearts and diamonds, abusing bombs will make it harder to beat later waves. EBF5 has a weapon for NoLegs, Masamune. Said weapon multiplies NoLegs' attack and magic by 3 as well as adding 30% to evasion and accuracy. The catch? It reduces his HP by 70%. Considering his HP is already pretty low to begin with, it really turns him into a Glass Cannon unless you boost his evasion further.

Some food items in the fourth game, as they are either only available in chests, very rarely dropped by enemies, or bought in the rare shop (though the price doubles with each purchase). This is subverted due to how enemies gain more per level than the players, making these items essential to surviving Battle Mountain. That said, the player still needs to be smart about how they distribute the stat items.

Anything That Moves: The Beholder.

The fourth game allows it to molest the god of the planet, among other things. It's in all four games, by the way.

Sequel Escalation
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_391d6577
comment
Sequel Escalation/Sorting Algorithm of Evil: The first game's final boss was Zombie Goku, again. Not so awful for Matt and Natz to deal with, you say, aside from him destroying a good portion of the world upon his defeat. The second game has them fight the guy trying to take over the world in the aftermath of the first game. Again, not so horrible to deal with, especially compared to the final boss of the original... then we get to EBF3, where the main villain is a demonic being of god-like power who represents a huge threat to the world relative to previous final bosses, and to existence in general. And the final boss of EBF4 is Godcat herself, which pales in comparison when the final boss of EBF5 goes meta.

Boring, but Practical
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_39b8d3d6
comment
Boring, but Practical: The Protect and Barrier abilities. You will be casting these constantly in tougher battles, because many strong enemies and virtually all bosses can kill party members in one turn on Epic if you don't. In EBF 5, the Putrid Worm summon has a pitiful attack and only affects a single target. However, that effect is to reduce the target's evasion to the minimum, which greatly boosts the chance of capturing an enemy (including bosses).

Degraded Boss
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_3babae20
comment
Degraded Boss: The first boss of EBF1 is NoLegs riding a Giant Slime; Giant Slimes would later appear in EBF3 beyond as stronger counterparts to existing slimes. Similarly, the first mini-boss of EBF2, the Kitten Fort, got degraded to a tough enemy with several variants in later games. The Beholder, Zombie Hydra, and Sandworm are back in the third game as enemies. Fortunately, they have far less hit points, the Hydra can no longer revive each head, and the Sandworm isn't assisted by its tail. They all get re-upgraded to serve as bonus bosses in the fourth game, though the Zombie Hydra got downgraded once again (complete with variants) as a Wyrm in the fifth game. In a rare case of this happening to parts of a boss, there's the three Turrets in EBF4. Each is based on a secondary weapon of the Valkyrie Tank from EBF2. The Defender from the first game returns as a mini-boss in EBF4 and EBF5 (gaining variants in the latter), and it's still pretty darned powerful. The Pyrohydra and Giant Squid bosses from EBF3 also get downgraded into the Dragon and Squid species, respectively. After being a boss in two games, the Mammoth becomes a standard enemy in EBF5, alongside new variants. The Cosmic Monolith goes from being a Boss in Mook Clothing in 3 and a Bonus Boss in 4 to a relatively ordinary late-game enemy in 5.

comment
Magikarp Power: The weapons and armors themselves can be more or less, depending on your playstyle, in the 3rd and 4th games. An example is the Sky Feather in the fourth game. When it starts out, it's rather difficult to use and isn't as powerful as other options, but upgraded, it can, if used right, allow Anna to spam spells and restore her magic constantly. Again, it's more of a your mileage may vary, but for the most part, upgraded items are much more useful than they would appear at low levels.

Ability Required to Proceed: Used in EBF4 and EBF5. The axe, torch, hammer, ladder, and three kinds of boots will be obtained throughout the games. Deliberately patterned after Pokémon.: EBF4: You even get achievements called "Used Cut", "Used Flash", "Used Rock Smash", and "Used ...Ladder?". Non-player characters at Goldenbrick Resort in EBF4 call the stepladder "legendary" since there is only one in the entire world. EBF5: which adds an additional number of items such as the shovel and a second type of hammer, but also the items that are necessary only for extra loot, like the Cloud Boots.

Endless Game
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_41d0e801
comment
Endless Game: The aptly-named Endless Battle in EBF4. The waves are randomly generated, every 5th wave is tougher, then the enemies level up. By wave 30 or so, all enemies are 6 levels higher than you, no matter your team's level! Also, Hard difficulty is forced for this mode! This carries over to the EBF5 combat demo, only you have an options menu for levels, equipment, difficulty, etc. In fact, this goes as far back as the battle demo for EBF3, only way simplified, with 3 repeating waves of slimes that level up with each repeat. Bullet Heaven has a single survival level available from the beginning, which gives you maxed health and bombs, and collecting money gradually powers you up. Enemies are somewhat random, but later waves have tougher foes, until you come across foes from the final zone. Bullet Heaven 2 has 11 survival levels, also with randomly generated waves. Here, enemies get slightly faster and tankier each round, and their bullets are similarly increased in speed. While 5% or so each round may not seem like much, it still adds up quickly, and if you want 3 stars in these levels, you need to collect 15 diamonds! Oh, you also have one each of health and bombs, and cheats (and handicaps) are disabled like Bullet Heaven above!

Updated Re-release
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_42502bbe
comment
The Updated Re Release of EBF3 applied several nerfs, mostly to enemies: The Pyrohydra had its health reduced, and their Fire absorption and Abyss's poison absorption were lessened; this drastically cuts down on Blaze's healing output and Abyss's Healing Factor. The Viking Monolith's Wave-Motion Gun attack has a much lower freeze chance outside of Epic difficulty. The Cosmic Monolith's Doomsday had its damage reduced. Poison now deals less damage to enemies. The Soul Eater sword had its defense reductions increased.

Dual Boss
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_486466ee
comment
Dual Boss: The games where this happens: EBF2: The Zombie Hydra. Both heads have a One-Hit Kill attack (most annoying and lethally accurate on Epic), and can revive each other if not both defeated on the same turn. EBF4: Godcat plays it straight first, with Creator Godcat and Destroyer Godcat, then both of their One-Winged Angel forms separate. After beating both individually, they attack you together, but they aren't weakened at all and still manage to remain a Flunky Boss on top of that! Near the end of the bonus content, you fight "Dark" versions of each party member. After fighting each of them individually, there's a rematch where you fight both of the physically-oriented ones at once and both of the magic-oriented ones at once. They can also summon their normal helpers when their partners go down. EBF5: Once in the main story, and once in the bonus content: The main story has Lance and Neon Valkyrie. The bonus content has Sol and Skadi, with the twist that which one you choose to start the fight with affects the weather you have to deal with.

Exploited Immunity
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_490bf391
comment
Exploited Immunity: Some enemy spells do damage to everyone on both sides of the field. In all cases, the caster absorbs the spell's element, often alongside its allies. These include: A rain of hot ash that hits 3 times for fire damage in EBF3 and has a chance of inflicting Burn status in 4 and 5. A hail spell that hits 3 times for ice damage. This skill is learnable in EBF4 as "Hailstorm". Cloudburst hits everything once for water damage in 3, gives everyone "Wet" status in 4 and 5, and is learnable in 4 (and possibly 5). In EBF3, Doomsday hits the entire field for massive dark damage, and can be used by cosmic monoliths. This means that not only can this really hurt, but these monoliths absorb darkness, making high dark resistance, Syphon, and/or fast damage a must, since cosmic monoliths cast this every 3 turns like the other two cast their beam attacks. Thankfully, Doomsday no longer hits the enemy side in 4 onward (meaning the Cosmic Monolith can't heal itself this way), but it is still pretty nasty, to say the least. A snow-themed ice spell replaces Hailstorm for the enemies in 4, doing ice damage to everyone with a chance of casting Freeze. One interesting outcome of any of these spells being cast is when other enemies aren't immune or even resistant to such elements, resulting in them taking damage from their own allies. This is particularly noticeable in a certain "Monolith Trio" battle in 3, in which the Cosmic's Doomsday will do severe damage to its two allies. Even more so in 4 on Hard or Epic on a New Game+, in which certain snow/ice enemies can cast the snow-themed ice spell mentioned above, and One-Hit Kill non-resistant allies, even if you hardly feel it!

Early Installment Weirdness
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: In multiple ways: Instead of being a traditional RPG adventure, the first two games were "arena"-style, where you fight continuous waves of enemies and bosses. There's no leveling (characters start with max stats), no equipment other than Matt's swords, and a lot fewer spells (due to the different formula, there was no need for multi-tiered spells). The first game was even simpler, lacking Limit Breaks, an Enemy Scan, and a save feature. While the series is known for being Reference Overdosed, EBF1 took it to another level by directly using characters and music from other works. Starting from the sequel, which was significantly more professional, these characters either disappeared entirely or had their roles replaced (for example, NoLegs replaced Mog as the random healing item spell). Possibly as a result of this, the first game doesn't have much connection to the rest plot-wise, with the only relevant event from it being Zombie Goku's death explosion, which kicks off EBF2's plot (Zombie Goku himself goes unmentioned). Summon Magic was in a weird situation for the earlier games. In the first two games, it was basically another form of regular magic for Natz. In the third, it's scrapped entirely and the summons are turned into other types of skills. EBF4 reintroduced the system so that everyone could use it, as well as changing its cost to Summon Points. Going further back, Natalie's first appearance had her using shuriken as a weapon instead of magic, and Matt's appearance in Brawl Royale had him use a gun at one point, something he never does afterwards.

 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_5560dbb5
comment
Airborne Mook: Most flying enemies in general have high evade rates, making them a pain to hit if you don't debuff their evasion beforehand. They also tend to be resistant to Earth damage. The main exception is in the first game, where there is no accuracy or evasion stat, and all attacks always hit.

Women Are Wiser: This was averted in EBF3, as Natalie and Lance alternated between being in the right while Matt was consistently an Idiot Hero. The trope was played straight in EBF4, as Natalie and Anna were much more down to earth and wise compared to their male counterparts.

Yin-Yang Bomb: Natalie uses both holy and dark spells. Godcat also uses holy and dark, but this trope is best shown in Bullet Heaven, where she uses both at once. In EBF4, she's split between her dark and her light side, who only use spells from their element. NoLegs has also Dark and Holy moves in his default skillset. And GodCat as his exclusive limit breaks.

comment
Our Hydras Are Different: 3, 4, and 5 feature multiheaded dragons (but only their heads fit on the battle screen, and only in 3 does the dragon have a body on the overworld). They're particularly dangerous because, in addition to strong attacks, high HP and defenses, at least one head will have healing magic, and in 5 you actually need to kill all three heads within a turn of each other or they'll revive one another indefinitely.

Charge: The "Charged Attack" status buff. Certain ultra-powerful spells can only be used while the caster has this buff. The 'Charge' effect is consumed when the spell is cast, and it will also disappear on its own after a few turns.

All of the games have different types of bushes as basic foes (or advanced foes in the case of giant bushes), and "haunted tree" enemies that use dark and poison attacks. The fourth features Mighty Oak (a treant of sorts) as its first boss, and many flower enemies in the Jungle (including the massive Rafflesia boss).

Powerful, but Inaccurate
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_5bec943d
comment
Powerful, but Inaccurate: Quite a few weapons from 3 onward will offset their ludicrous damage bonus by accuracy penalty. For example, Lance's Green Goliath in 5 doubles physical and magical attack when maxed, but decreases accuracy (along with evasion) and auto-inflicts Tired status, which gradually decreases accuracy even further.

Just Friends: Natz and Matt. Natz is very surprised when Matt says they're "more than friends", only for her to be dejected when he says he means "we're a team." Matt views being part of a team as closer than friends, while Natz views the opposite, since NoLegs and Lance are also part of the team. Well, maybe until after the fifth game, at least.

Big Eater/Extreme Omnivore: Matt. Guess what he and Natalie do to the Giant Sand Worm after defeating it in the second game. You know, the one with poisonous blood. Taken Up to Eleven in the third game. First, after defeating Jack, you get to play the first minigame, which plays this trope on NoLegs, but this is optional. In the following cutscene, the whole group throws up while eating slimes (except for Natalie; she threw up before she could eat one). Then it is implied that they ate the Giant Squid boss. Finally, Matt and Lance try to eat the last Woolly Mammoth after defeating it. Only Natz's pity for the creature saves it from becoming dinner. This whole routine is repeated in EBF4, with Anna in place of Natalie, and if you find the mammoth in the Bonus Dungeon, even she'll consent to eating it on the grounds that it won't be canon. After the party defeats a turtle enemy: In the volcano area, Matt comments that it's a shame they didn't get to kill whatever left those giant skeletons around, because the lava would've made it easy to cook. A few screens later, they fight a dragon, though sadly aren't shown eating it. In the fourth game, after Anna takes Matt hostage because she suspects he stole the crystal, she joins him in battle. The first few comments he makes are about cooking the wildlife they fought. Apparently, even Matt draws the line at eating the Evil Worm. In the fifth game, Matt will occasionally state after winning the battle that they're not going hungry today. Even if their opponents were a group of Cosmic Monoliths, stated to be composed of anti-matter.

Heel–Face Turn
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_617f0563
comment
Heel–Face Turn: This apparently happens each game. First, NoLegs joins your party in the second game, when in the first game he rides the first mini boss, and then the Beholder joins too (and then it's an enemy in 3 and 4 again, but after you defeat it in the latter game it's a helpful summon). Then, of course, Lance after you beat him in the second game. The woolly mammoth from the third game is a summon (and sometimes randomly triggered effect), dropping from the sky to flatten your enemies. Natalie is quite happy to see it's alive and well.

Badass Normal: For a given definition of "normal", Lance. Natalie is a Magical Girl and Matt is a Magic Knight, while Lance does not appear to know magic per se at all. Despite this, he is no weaker than the rest of the party, relying primarily on very powerful guns, but also tanks, nukes, ion cannons... Anna is even better at this, being just as good at killing stuff as her companions, except she mostly only uses bows.

His first form has an electric breath and a dark breath, his second form has a humongous mouth and as such has an energy sword "breath", a dark beam breath, a huge death ball breath... His Evil Worm has a bubble breath, a dark breath, and a poison breath. Same goes for the Sandworm. The Hydra / Dragon heads also like their breath weapons...

Underground Monkey: Just about every enemy in the third game onwards has around three/four species variations with different attacks, weaknesses and resistances, and drops. In an interesting use of this trope, none of the enemy variants can really be considered "stronger"; since enemies use a leveling system like the heroes, an early game-enemy can appear among its later-game variants and still be just as strong, meaning that no single enemy becomes obsolete.

comment
Stock RPG Spells: Being a parody of RPGs in general, many examples of this trope and included sub-tropes are present. Herd-Hitting Attack: Both Natz and Lance have access to a great deal of Area of Effect attacks. Lance also has Chaining attacks. Non-Elemental: Attacks which deal non-elemental damage are surprisingly scarce. Even melee attacks are almost always elemental, unless the weapons themselves have no element. Summon Magic: Added in the fourth game. Summons can be called by any player character. They are further made distinct from Skills and Specials in that they consume a party-shared SP (Summon Points) meter which is only replenished by killing monsters. Furthermore, their damage is dependent on the level of the user, as opposed to (Magic) Attack; however, their power is boosted by matching elemental weapons just like regular skills! Natalie had her own Summon Magic in the first two games, but they use MP like any other special technique.

The Grim Reaper: The most recurring One-Hit Kill attack in the series summons one to attack the target, with its lethality being counterbalanced by its relatively low accuracy... except on Epic. Until EBF4, it was exclusive to enemies, and even when it did become available to players, it's only as a rare summon from one specific weapon.

Matt (especially Matt), Natz, and Lance are not bright. They die in the second game when they eat a sandworm, despite knowing that it had attacks that implied it was obviously poisonous. Then, they poke a chained, obviously evil demon that steals their power. Lampshaded in the third game, when they admit that solving a puzzle hurt their heads. Natalie gets smarter in the fourth game, though. When a puzzle needs explaining and there isn't an NPC around to help, the others call her over to take a look.

EBF4 onwards allows you to set the difficulty whenever you want. Also, as a more fair variation on the above example, you can try beating the fourth game on Epic without changing the difficulty while keeping Lance in your backup slot the entire time (this means no TotalPartyKills on the front line).

Status Buff
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_7b4ac30a
comment
Status Buff: Almost all of which can be removed by "Dispel." Auto-Revive: The "Auto-Revive" status buff. Gained by casting revive on an alive player; this even happens with spells like Natz's Genesis limit break, giving all characters Auto-Revive status. The downside is that it wears off after a few turns. Bless: Grants immunity to all negative status effects, including Dispel, for the duration of the buff. Brave: The "Critical-Up" status buff. Improves critical hit chance and grants critical hit immunity. As of EBF 5 v 2.0, it also protects players from getting their physical attack or magic attack debuffed. Charge: The "Charged Attack" status buff. Certain ultra-powerful spells can only be used while the caster has this buff. The 'Charge' effect is consumed when the spell is cast, and it will also disappear on its own after a few turns. Defend: The "Defend" status buff. Reduces all incoming damage by half for the remainder of the turn. Can be granted by selecting "Defend" from the tactics menu, and can be granted to the entire party at once by using the "Ancient Monolith" summon in EBF4. Morale: An interesting status buff that grants a chance of surviving any attack with 1 HP remaining, and prevents instant when above half health. As of EBF 5 v 2.0, it also protects players from getting their physical defense or magic defense debuffed. Regen: The "Regeneration" status buff. Restores health at the beginning of each turn.

Too Awesome to Use
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_7d561d58
comment
Too Awesome to Use: The Ion attack in the second game. While you can use it whenever you want, doing so causes extreme damage to the entire party. Averted when the Final Boss uses it due to their high HP, though it can cut the lifespan of their summoned turrets. In the third game, Natz' Black Hole Limit Break and Lance's Nuke Limit Break will both hurt the party as well as the enemies. (The Ion attack, now also a Limit Break, no longer has this problem.) Actually, Limit Breaks in general are this, as you'll keep saving them for later and typically only end up using them on bosses. The same goes for more costly summons in the fourth game, like the Praetorian, the Protector, and the Cosmic Monolith. Learning to (partially) cast away this mentality and keeping track of both charging bars is one of the most useful advanced techniques you can learn for the nastier bosses and for Battle Mountain's rush waves. In addition, Meow Meow and Catastrophe in the first. Summoning Meow Meow featured a 30% chance of his sword breaking and damaging the party as well (supposedly compensated by hitting the enemy twice when this happens), and Catastrophe's third sword always hit P2 (Natz) for high damage, about 8000 of her 9999 health. Some food items in the fourth game, as they are either only available in chests, very rarely dropped by enemies, or bought in the rare shop (though the price doubles with each purchase). This is subverted due to how enemies gain more per level than the players, making these items essential to surviving Battle Mountain. That said, the player still needs to be smart about how they distribute the stat items. Very rare items in EBF5, such as Espresso, which also buffs your maximum HP and is one of few ways to do so. They cannot be bought at all, so you'll probably save them up for Bonus Boss battles. Stat raising items can be now gotten from some nasty enemies (think Cosmic Monolith), but their drop rate is very low.

Rainbow Pimp Gear: There are only three equipment slots, and mixing and matching doesn't make the characters look TOO bad, though. The fourth game introduces three additional equip slots for Flair that can look rather out of place while being surprisingly effective. Even more downplayed in the fifth game. Some gear changes color depending on the other gear or even the character wearing it.

Akron's lower body is able to belch a massive Laser Blade for massive damage to the whole party. His Evil Worm can also regurgitate a huge sword to hit a party member. Swordslinger robots possess enormous swords as well. Parodied by a line from Matt in EBF5. He explains his Ragnarok Limit Break is a bunch of "swords" falling from the sky because they're too big for him to hope to attack with conventionally.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: EBF 2 & 3 have a summon called Meow Meow where a giant sword-wielding cat is summoned to attack the enemy. Meow Meow vanishes the next game. What makes this notable is that Meow Meow violates the World Building of EBF4, which stresses the fact that cats don't have arms or legs in this world. It's rather jarring that all the players make a big deal out of seeing cats with arms, legs, and tails despite the fact that they had a summon that was just that. He doesn't appear to have legs on the world map, but when summoned in battle he has them.

Eldritch Abomination: The Cosmic Monolith; a gigantic, pitch black rectangle from space that fires lasers capable of ripping holes in space-time and whose signature attack is named Doomsday. Worse yet, upon death, the inside of the monolith resembles Dark Matter. In the fourth game, summoning it even causes thousands of the things to appear all over the globe in a way that implies an invasion of the things. Good thing one of them's on your side. In 5, as if all its nasty power isn't bad enough, it has a single physical attack if Syphoned, and it hurts like hell!

Self-Imposed Challenge: Play as one player. Or two in the third game, seeing how some battles have up to five enemies in one wave, in contrast to the first two games' three. This makes a one-player run nearly impossible and stunning/freezing enemies (2 onward) will make these challenges harder. EBF4 onwards allows you to set the difficulty whenever you want. Also, as a more fair variation on the above example, you can try beating the fourth game on Epic without changing the difficulty while keeping Lance in your backup slot the entire time (this means no TotalPartyKills on the front line).

 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_91d3ab1e
comment
Ominous Pipe Organ: Each game has one, at least after the Early Installment Weirdness of EBF1. EBF2 has Organ Jaws, a classically sinister usage of Ominous Pipe Organ. EBF3 has DiVINe MaDNEss, featuring a more frantic and chaotic take on the trope. EBF4 has Fallen Blood, leading off with the organ before taking a turn for the heavier. [EBF 5=] has Blaze of Iris, combining the organ with a more synthetic instrumental arrangement to represent the terrors from the beyond.

Health/Damage Asymmetry: As both player and enemy levels increase, the latter group tends to grow faster in HP, but not as fast in overall damage. To balance things out, the players tend to have way higher defensive stats than the enemies could even hope for by the endgame.

Random Effect Spell: Mog in the first game, NoLegs in the second and third games, and Friend Dog in the fourth game, supply a random consumable item to be immediately eaten. It may not be useful if it, say, buffs your mage's attack, but in a pinch it becomes the best way to replenish your MP without using expensive or limited magic-replenishing items.

Feed It with Fire: If resistance to an element is above 100%, attacks of that element heal instead of doing damage, so poisoning some foes will merely cause them to regenerate health (some foes such as slimes start with this buff on epic difficulty). Also, some fire-absorbing foes in 4 start with Burn status, to the same effect. Starting from EBF4, if you have the right equipment, you can experience the same thing. There's even an achievement medal for doing it!

Continuity Nod

comment
Continuity Nod: In the first game, one of the bosses has a Charged Attack, which, when charging, triggers a warning saying "Brace for beam cannon". The final boss does this as well, his saying: "Brace for spirit bomb". The main concept is "Brace for X." The Cosmic Monolith's strongest attack involves it using a very low-damage ray to tear a rift in the ground, which then explodes. This prompts Lance to say "Oh, Crap!, brace for... that." Zombie Goku carries a scar from his previous battle with Matt in Brawl Royale (although the scar is much smaller than you would expect for a guy who got perfectly bisected). The final outfit that can be found for Lance is his German officer uniform from his appearance in EBF2, minus the swastikas. Numerous references are made to earlier games in Bullet Heaven 2, ranging from clear ones like Akron (which turn out to be relevant at the very end of the game) to more obscure ones like EBF3's beach scene.

One-Man Army
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_9e943076
comment
NoLegs the cat goes One-Man Army on whole zerg rushes of enemies during the bonus stages of EBF2, and is top tier in Bullet Heaven. He is also a usable summon in EBF4 that strikes all enemies and is fantastically useful in the early game, though tougher enemies later on make him somewhat obsolete. Though there's the Kitten Fort summon, where he returns leading a wagon-fortress, and is much more useful, by way of giving you a buff that staves off One-Hit Kill effects, on top of running the enemy over. Even better, NoLegs can auto-summon himself in between turns, and does this regularly, without any equipment restrictions or requirements, making him a constant source of damage. He becomes a full-blown party member in EBF5.

The Lost Woods: Vegetable Forest Palmtree Panic: Rock Lake Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Glacier Valley Hailfire Peaks: The volcano part near the end of Glacier Valley. This one might have been done to introduce some of the fire enemies early. Shifting Sand Land/Ruins for Ruins' Sake: The Kitten Kingdom Ruins Lethal Lava Land: Volcano Peak Space Zone: Outer Space In the fourth game: First Town: Greenwood Village Lethal Lava Land: Ashwood Forest and the lava caves in most of the areas. Dug Too Deep/Underground Level: Crystal Caverns Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Parts of Crystal Caverns and Whitefall Town; your character doesn't slide, but the blocks do.

Battle Mountain in particular includes all the terrain types in a 6 x 3 map. In the fifth game: First Town/Palmtree Panic/Shifting Sand Land: Hope Harbor Eternal Engine/Big Fancy Castle: Iron Fortress Dug Too Deep/Underground Level: Just about every premium dungeon counts as this (except the Temple of Trials) The Lost Woods: Mystic Woods Slippy-Slidey Ice World: Frozen Valley Cyberspace: The area where Snowflake resides.

One-Hit Kill
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_a414c3f0
comment
One-Hit Kill: The first two games have a pattern where the second-to-last boss and the last boss have one. One of the zombie hydra's attacks, and one of the tank's cannons in the second game, and the spirit bomb and mega lazer in the first. Thankfully, all of these (except for the Zombie Hydra's instant-death spell) are Charged Attacks, and they aren't true One-Hit Kills — they just do such ridiculously high damage that they might as well be. As long as your HP is high enough, you can use the Defend Command to avoid utter annihilation. One of the platforms that the Valkyrie tank can bring up to assist itself is a nuke-launching station. Its only attack is to advance a countdown. And the nuke will be launched at you when it ends. The only way to save yourself from that one is to demolish the nuke station before this can happen. And it's entirely possible for it to have two nukes being prepared for launch simultaneously. For more Final Boss cheapness, Goku from the first game still gets to take his turn after his Spirit Bomb lands. Thankfully (or not), he never spends that turn charging up another Spirit Bomb. Instead, he uses one of his other super-painful moves. Though he cannote and probably will when at low health launch another Spirit Bomb on the turn after that.

And I Must Scream: During the fourth game, at the second village near the optional graveyard area, one of the NPCs will bring up a rumour about how her friend was supposedly turned into a tree. Going into the graveyard area you'll see a lot of living trees, which the main characters show pity towards if you try to interact with. It's stated during the mentioned discussion that this is fairly common. The equipment upgrade system in EBF5 involves using captured foes to upgrade equipment. Presumably while still alive!

Preexisting Encounters: From third game onward, most foes appear on the map, and you initiate battles by interacting with them. The enemy encounters that don't appear on the map trigger when you step on specific tiles. The good news is that they don't actively chase you and the ones that block important paths don't respawn. Actually Four Mooks: Any enemy encounter in these games is represented by a single enemy, meaning that harmless-looking bush could actually contain a four-wave (or longer) marathon battle (*cough* Battle Mountain *cough*). Fortunately, each encounter usually shows the strongest monster fought in said encounter, thus lowering the number of bad surprises.

Taken Up to Eleven in the third game with her Cat Girl and Cow Girl outfits. In each game, she invokes the trope in her healing "Limit Break", and lampshades it at least once per game. Anna from the fourth is clearly not impressed, or jealous, but it's hard to tell, by Natz' stature, and during the remarks where she openly says something it's clear Natz is annoyed by it.

Too Dumb to Live: Matt (especially Matt), Natz, and Lance are not bright. They die in the second game when they eat a sandworm, despite knowing that it had attacks that implied it was obviously poisonous. Then, they poke a chained, obviously evil demon that steals their power. Lampshaded in the third game, when they admit that solving a puzzle hurt their heads. Natalie gets smarter in the fourth game, though. When a puzzle needs explaining and there isn't an NPC around to help, the others call her over to take a look. Lance believes radiation and smoking have no negative impact on the human body.

comment
Putting on the Reich: Lance's outfit in the second game is quite... Nazi-like. In subsequent installments, you can re-attain the outfit and equip it on Lance or Matt. It provides a notable amount of Dark resistance, and when maxed out, will provide extra tank attacks randomly. It's worth noting that it lacks any Swastikas and becomes the "Officer's Coat" and "Officer's Hat", though it keeps its appearance. Also, Lance's tank keeps its Balkenkreuz insignia in all appearances.

Brutal Bonus Level: Battle Mountain in the Steam version of the fourth game, featuring beefed-up versions of the main bosses, new bosses more powerful than those in the main game, and regular enemy encounters with at least 6 waves of enemies each, with each wave getting progressively harder. Not to mention all enemy encounters there scale to your level. EBF5 has five bonus dungeons with beefed-up versions of regular bosses, one special boss, and the level scaling as well.

Cycle of Hurting
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_c121be7b
comment
Cycle of Hurting: A natural consequence of a party member dying, since unless they have Auto-Revive, they lose all their buffs. This often results in turns spent reviving them and reactivating those buffs. Against bosses, this gives them plenty of time to kill another party member and start the whole process all over again. Two Bonus Boss fights in 5 emphasize learning how to deal with this, since Dark Priestess Natalia disables all healing spells, ensuring a lot of deaths, and God gives a large stacking buff to all living party members every round, which becomes necessary to survive later-phase attacks.

Cameo: Lots and lots, including several bosses in the first game, many of the summons, and a lot of the NPCs in the third game. Cameos are generally from anime, particularly Pokémon. Meow Meow is the mascot of the YouTuber NCH Productions. A more traditional example in EBF5: Chibi Knight appears as a reoccurring miniboss throughout the game. You can also unlock Sushi Cat as a skill for NoLegs.

Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Our heroes have done this all the time. In the third, they destroy an ancient Eldritch Abomination. Up to Eleven in the fourth, wherein they beat up the Creator and Destroyer aspects of Godcat. At once. Justified because she is not using her full strength, is still implied by the ending cutscene to be in better shape than our heroes rather than outright beaten, and ends up leaving once they prove their worth to her. Kicked into Serial Escalation in the fifth, where they destroy an eldritch horror from beyond the veil that tampers with reality itself. Note that both halves of Godcat are reduced to Limit Breaks explicitly because of it.

Tank Goodness: Lance's Valkyrie Supertank. In the third and fourth games, Lance has an ability where he orders his boss tank from the second game to fire its machine guns at the enemy. If you find and completely upgrade his old Nazi hat and outfit from the second game, the tank will randomly fire either its machine guns or its main cannon (and sometimes both) at the enemy for free. To top it off, one of Lance's limit breaks involves pounding the tank into the bad guys and then blowing it up.

All over the place in the fifth game, with Matt the primary offender.

Sexy Whatever Outfit: Basically everything the female PCs wear. There are a few armors which might not look too provocative on Anna, but you can probably be sure that won't hold on Natz. Pretty much the only armors that doesn't look of this trope at all on either of the ladies is the Shrine Maiden Dress and White Mage Dress. Played for Laughs in 5, because Natalie's inexplicably stuck with these (when NSFW content is allowed) while Anna's are generally more respectable. Up to Eleven when using 7th Heaven: There is a different fanservice design for every female armor in the game.

Anti-Frustration Features
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_d6f284a3
comment
Anti-Frustration Features: In the fourth game, the Instant Death status ailment instantly charges your limit break. Not only can this turn the tide, it can make it easier to recharge it before a boss battle. Battles can be fled at any time, so you can scan enemies without losing a turn. You can also select the difficulty at any time (since you only get achievements for beating bosses on epic). In the second game, if Natz is hit with the Seal status effect, she can still use Purify to un-Seal herself. Bullet Heaven 2 includes several ways to lessen the Sequel Difficulty Spike, including bullet clearing after every wave, the ability to bomb and avoid taking damage (effectively giving you extra hits and letting you lessen the blow of losing a perfect wave streak), and not requiring a restart if the bonus waves are failed. Interestingly, there are handicaps that allow you to remove the former two features, in exchange for a better score multiplier. In 5, medals given for beating bosses stay even when reloading the game to a previous state. So it's possible to save, kill a boss on Epic to get the medal, load the save, and fight the boss on Zero difficulty in order to have a much easier time capturing it for use as a summon. The Hungry status prevents a player from doing anything but waste turns eating food, sometimes the very expensive kind. Fortunately, this food doesn't come from your inventory.

Lightning Bruiser: GODCAT in her main light and dark forms. RIDICULOUS HP, attack power that can kill you several times over until you're close in level, and evasion so DAMN high that you have no chance in hell of reliably hitting her! In fact, the game crashes if you kill Godcat by hacking! To a lesser extent, some bosses and minibosses have very high evasion without losing out in other stats, such as Praetorian Mk2 and the Cosmic Monoliths.

Sexy Santa Dress: Playing the fourth game very completely might result in you missing this one from your inventory. You have to set your computer's clock to December unless your playthrough lasts through that month. 5 puts it Up to Eleven by it making the torso coverage nothing but two red straps tied around her breasts to cover her nipples. In the final game, this designed was changed to something logical... until you use 7th heaven with it.

Limited Animation: The idols introduced in 4 really stand out in the way that they have only one cohesive sprite. Most characters from the game have a number of segments to them that move and stretch for their actions, but the Idols are completely unmoving. The Pixel enemies from the bonus areas of 5 act the same way.

 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_e1c1eb5b
comment
Screamer Prank: Matt's "Screamer" special conjures up a color-inverted picture of a dog and lets loose a bloodcurdling shriek. It hits all enemies for Dark damage and reduces Magic Defense. However, since it runs off of Magic Attack, he's unlikely to do much damage with it, so in the fourth game giving it to Anna might be a better choice.

Friend to All Living Things: Anna. She is seen caring for a baby Bush monster in her idle animations. She will not hesitate to defend herself against the more aggressive living things, though. While Natz is shown to defend some forms of wildlife (if they're cute enough) like the mammoth, one of her responses against the Rafflesia boss is "Screw the rainforest!".

Fake Difficulty: The first two games become really hard if one party member dies, since you only have one left. Even worse, some enemies stun or freeze you... with a high chance of doing so. Meaning, you could have to sit out a turn with nobody else to help you getting attacked until you can fight again. And if there are multiple stun/freeze enemies, Godcat help you.

Normally, I Would Be Dead Now
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_e50818aa
comment
Normally, I Would Be Dead Now: With Morale status in EBF4 and 5, any character or foe can survive any single-hit attack that would otherwise One-Hit Kill them, with exactly 1 HP. This works not only with overkill levels of damage, but also instant death (which otherwise bypasses the Hit Points system)! The one condition is you have to be above 50% HP for it to work. Also, careful emphasis on the "single-hit" part, because it does not work if a multi-hit attack reduces the target to said 1 HP before the final hit. Neither that or knocking the target below 50% HP with multiple smaller hits, then dealing a powerful blow (such as with (Dark) Matt's Legend).

Nerf
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_e545e190
comment
Nerf: The skill Guardian (renamed Guardian Shield in EBF5) has zigzagged this several times. In EBF3, it buffs the target ally's defense and magic defense by up to 60% and evasion by up to 30%, and heals them slightly. In 4, it loses the healing, but gains 70% (magic) defense buffs and a 35% evasion buff. In 5, it also loses the evasion buff, in exchange for raising the defense and magic defense buffs to at least 80 percent at maximum level! EBF3's examples of Infinity +1 Element also had this in 4. Poison stacks drop by 1 each turn and scale less to enemy HP, while more enemies resist bomb attacks, although it's only a mild nerf; nevertheless, they can still be good elements to have on hand. Natalie's "Kyun" Limit Break was hit hard with the nerf gun in EBF4. Specifically, in the second and third games, it heals all players, buffs their attack, magic attack, defense, and magic defense by up to 50% while debuffing the same stats of the enemies. In 4, it loses the ability to debuff! However, EBF5, as well as renaming it to "7th Heaven" and changing the animation, buffs it again by making it affect all living allies in backup, which doesn't happen in 4. And it makes Natalie lovable, thus unable to be targeted by single-target attacks. Quite a few skills zigzag this trope, as on one hand, they are nerfed by the skill cooldown system in EBF5, as now you can't spam Healmore every turn, for example (at least without giving the user apple slices to reduce their cooldowns). On the other hand, some of these attacks have something to compensate for the cooldowns: Judgement has a 2-turn cooldown and loses its ability to inflict Weaken, but finally regains its Life Drain ability from the first two games. Legend also has a 2-turn cooldown but no longer makes Matt tired when used. Unload has a whopping 5-turn cooldown but no longer debuffs Lance's attack. Lance's fire skills each have a 1-turn cooldown, but they debuff the targets' defense. His dark skills now lower enemy magic defense. His plasma skills, however, are closer to an actual nerf, continuing to debuff enemy evasion but having the cooldown like his fire and dark skills. Reflex (now called Reflex Breeze) has a 5-turn cooldown like Protective Shield and Magic Barrier, cures Shroud status (see Standard Status Effects below) as well as buffing everyone's evade. Dark Pulsar has a 2-turn cooldown, but possesses the exact same power (skill-based factor for damage per target hit) as Dark Pulse. Monoliths were made more vulnerable to Syphon (which completely shuts them down) in the fourth game. In addition, their strongest attacks now require a turn to charge, making them less able to vaporize your party out of the blue. The laser for the Cosmic Monolith's Doomsday attack also no longer deals damage or debuffs accuracy, and it no longer hits the Monolith's side (which would heal the Monolith as it absorbs Dark). The Updated Re Release of EBF3 applied several nerfs, mostly to enemies: The Pyrohydra had its health reduced, and their Fire absorption and Abyss's poison absorption were lessened; this drastically cuts down on Blaze's healing output and Abyss's Healing Factor. The Viking Monolith's Wave-Motion Gun attack has a much lower freeze chance outside of Epic difficulty. The Cosmic Monolith's Doomsday had its damage reduced. Poison now deals less damage to enemies. The Soul Eater sword had its defense reductions increased.

Very rare items in EBF5, such as Espresso, which also buffs your maximum HP and is one of few ways to do so. They cannot be bought at all, so you'll probably save them up for Bonus Boss battles. Stat raising items can be now gotten from some nasty enemies (think Cosmic Monolith), but their drop rate is very low.

Sequel Difficulty Spike: Zigzagged between games 1-2 and 3-5. On one hand, games 3 and up allow you to save nearly anywhere outside of combat and aren't as wave-based as the first two games. On the other hand, enemies and bosses tend to require more strategy and specific equipment setups in the latter three games. Zigzagged with 5 as well. The cooldown system means on one hand that you can spam some attacks with impunity, like Firestorm, but the other, like the all-critical Heal More, have cooldowns and therefore cannot be spammed like in previous entries with sufficient MP count.

Bullet Heaven 2 has 11 survival levels, also with randomly generated waves. Here, enemies get slightly faster and tankier each round, and their bullets are similarly increased in speed. While 5% or so each round may not seem like much, it still adds up quickly, and if you want 3 stars in these levels, you need to collect 15 diamonds! Oh, you also have one each of health and bombs, and cheats (and handicaps) are disabled like Bullet Heaven above!

Non-Nazi Swastika
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_faa8024b
comment
Non-Nazi Swastika: This is set up purposefully. The Big Bad Lance is portrayed as a neo-Nazi intent on destroying the world to rebuild it. However, if one looks carefully at his uniform, his swastika is facing the other direction from the Nazi swastika to form the Buddhist symbol for peace, an appropriate reflection of his ultimate motives.

Gainaxing: Not only does Natalie happily jiggle here and there, clicking her boobs while she's standing still will make them bounce. The third game even upgraded to bounce away from the relative location you clicked on them. You get a medal for doing it enough.

Hopeless Boss Fight
 Epic Battle Fantasy (Video Game) / int_fc07d409
comment
Hopeless Boss Fight: EBF4 has a couple of downplayed examples with the Creator and Destroyer forms of Godcat, who each ambush you at specific points in the story. Your attacks will almost always miss them, and their attacks are guaranteed OneHitKills, but unlike most examples, they'll leave after a few turns and summon some weaker enemies that you can defeat. EBF5 has a more traditional example when Lance ambushes you in the Valkyrie, wipes out the entire party before you can do anything, and kidnaps Natalie.

comment
Godcat plays it straight first, with Creator Godcat and Destroyer Godcat, then both of their One-Winged Angel forms separate. After beating both individually, they attack you together, but they aren't weakened at all and still manage to remain a Flunky Boss on top of that!

Artistic License – Economics: In EBF4 onwards, one of Lance's idle animations is him reading a newspaper. Quoth one of the randomly-picked headlines that may appear:
