The Anarchy is a recurring Dark-elemental sword in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is wielded by Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 and 4, but it's also used by Zombie Roku in Epic Battle Fantasy and Dark Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.


The Anarchy is a black sword with a crude, irregular appearance, appearing to have been carved from stone or battered metal. It has a long, broad blade with several scratches on it, a blocky handguard marked with an inverted red pentacle, and white bandages wrapped around its hilt.

The Anarchy appears in Matt's possession during the quest to stop Lance. It is likely that Matt either stole the sword from Roku following the latter's death, or that the cats retrieved the Anarchy along with the heroes while bringing them to the Kitten Kingdom, after which Matt claimed it as his own.

The Anarchy gives Matt a good Attack boost, tied with the Blizzard and only surpassed by the Soul Eater for the stat. Its Unleash can Dispel its target, and it also increases Screamer's damage (although a bug prevented the boost from working properly pre-EBF Collection). It makes Matt's Weapon-elemental attacks inflict an Attack debuff, which stacks with the Attack debuff from the Swordbreaker Skill Bonus.

In the absence of the Soul Eater, the Anarchy fulfills the role of Matt's "glass cannon" sword for EBF4. It boasts ludicrous Attack, but halves Matt's defenses. To add to its power, it can counter with Revenge; this is unimpressive at high health, but can let Matt deal fearsome damage if he counters a heavy attack. This works even better if Matt was set up with Morale beforehand, allowing him to endure powerful attacks with 1 HP before countering with a very strong Revenge.

While the Anarchy has the highest raw Attack of any sword in the game, it is generally considered inferior to the Equilibrium, which has trivial downsides, resistance to two elements, a far more powerful and reliable Legend counter, a useful Syphon chance, and occasional Auto-Revive status between turns. Nonetheless, the Anarchy is a very powerful weapon worth consideration for pre-Equilibrium or non-Premium Pack offensive builds; the Sapphire Giant is a good alternative if the player wants more survivability in addition to good general power.

The Anarchy resists Dark, Death and Doom; the latter two become an immunity at max level.
