Anna is the third player character to be fought in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. Anna is fought in No Man's Land.

She fights the party shortly after Natalie has been kidnapped by Lance (believing Matt and NoLegs to be Lance's henchmen). After defeating her and clearing up the misunderstanding, she joins the party.


Anna bears a striking resemblance to Anna, courtesy of being literally the same person. She is wearing the Amber Bobble and the Ranger Skirt. Anna is wielding the Fairy Bow.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

  • If Surrender Score equal or higher than 4 → Surrender;
  • Every 2 turns;
  • <59% HP and hasn't eaten yet → Eat Pumpkin;
  • Otherwise → Normal Attack (1/4), Piercing Shot (1/4);
    • If target has Wet and playing on Hard or Epic → Frost Arrow (1/4), Spark Arrow (1/4);
    • Otherwise → Aqua Arrow, (1/6), Frost Arrow (1/6), Spark Arrow (1/6).

* Anna's Limit Break becomes available every time she receives damage equal to 50% of her max HP.

Surrender Score is calculated as such:

  • For each of Burn, Poison, Wet, Weaken, Tired, Cursed, Bad Luck or Stagger add 1 point.
  • If Anna's HP is below 29% add 1 point, 2 points if she's below 19%, 3 points if she's below 9% or 4 points if she's below 4%.


Among the player fights, Anna is a serious challenge and much more powerful than Natalie was. Anna boasts a wide variety of attacks from many different elements, and has a good chance of inflicting several painful status conditions such as Freeze and Stun. This movepool gets even worse on harder difficulties, as Anna's Whirlwind gets upgraded to Hurricane (which has higher power and multi-target) and gains the option of using Razor Leaf. Furthermore, Anna's AI is improved somewhat on harder difficulties, as she will stop using Aqua Arrow on Wet targets (instead having a slightly higher chance to use Spark and Frost Arrow against them).

If you want to take a shortcut around this battle and use nothing but statuses, Anna is actually fairly easy. In order to trigger a Surrender, Anna has a special meter which must hit 4 points. When the player inflicts a status condition onto her, Anna will gain 1 point until it fades. Relevant statuses include Burn, Poison, Wet, Weaken, Tired, Cursed, Bad Luck and Stagger. Having NoLegs use skills such as Bubbly Strike and Wispy Strike while Matt uses Torrent and Overgrowth will make it much easier to defeat Anna. Anna will also gain points as she takes damage; the checkpoints are at 29%, 19%, 9% and 4%.


  • As with all of the player fights, looking at Anna in the bestiary will show whatever equipment she currently has instead of what she wore during the fight.
  • Despite not wearing any equipment that gives an elemental weakness (in fact, the Amber Bobble resists Fire) Anna still is vulnerable to Fire and Wind.
