"Awesome, these new swords just keep getting bigger and bigger! (I need to avoid cleaving my party members in half though.)"
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Berzerker, also known as Stone Edge in the first two games, is one of Matt's recurring swords in the Epic Battle Fantasy series.

Description

The Stone Edge is a light grey sword with a broad, rounded blade. Greek letters are engraved through the middle of the blade (spelling "berserker baby"), and the hilt is relatively thin and wrapped in brown leather.

In EBF5, the Berzerker looks similar to its previous appearances, but the inscription on the blade is gone, and two crossed straps of brown leather are wrapped around the bottom of the blade.

Epic Battle Fantasy

The Stone Edge gives Matt a little extra Attack, a fair bit of Magic Defence, and a large boost to Defence at the cost of slightly reducing his Magic Attack. It powers up Quake and Eruption (although only the first is mentioned in its description).

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Stone Edge is an Earth-based sword with great Defence and decent Attack and Magic Defence, but it slightly lowers Matt's Magic Attack and Accuracy while cutting his Evade in half. It powers up Quake, Eruption, and Iceberg (the latter two to a lesser degree than the first, and left unmentioned in its description), and has the ability to lower enemy Defence with its Unleash.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Berzerker grants the third-highest Attack bonus among swords, along with minor bonuses to HP, Defence, and Magic Defence and an average bonus to Magic Attack. Its overall good stats come at the cost of inflicting Tired on Matt, which will passively reduce his Accuracy and Evade. It counters with Revenge, inflicts Dispel with Weapon-elemental skills, and boosts the power of Non-elemental skills, which in Matt's case boil down to Ragnarok and a few shared skills.

The Berzerker can be considered a less extreme version of the Giant Slayer, having slightly less power in exchange for more bulk and less severe stat penalties. The Accuracy and Evade drops inflicted by Tired can be mitigated with Accuracy/Evade buffs, Cleanse support, or just rotating Matt in and out of backup to keep the status infliction to a minimum. That said, the Berzerker faces serious competition from both the Giant Slayer and the Soul Eater, not to mention the offensive builds of other players.

The Berzerker is resistant to Earth, Wind, Weaken, and Tired, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5. Unfortunately, its Tired resistance will not reduce the risk of it inflicting the status on Matt.

Equip Remix

The Alt Berzerker has decent physical bulk, with modest HP and good Defence, but its best stat is its massive Attack. It actually has the highest physical power of any sword in Equip Remix; note that this is only 100%, a far cry from the normal version of the Soul Eater. It can occasionally make Matt Brave between turns, protecting him from offensive debuffs and critical hits while raising his own crit chance; combined with the Stagger it can inflict with Weapon-elemental skills (including its Slicing Cyclone counter-attack), the Alt Berzerker is great at dishing out critical hits.

However, the Alt Berzerker also inflicts Berserk on Matt every turn, which is a double-edged sword. While it boosts his damage further, it takes away the player's control over Matt, which tends to be more of a hindrance than a help in most situations. Given its non-elemental nature and the simple fact that Berserk is not as useful as in earlier games, the Alt Berzerker is actually not the best option despite its stats.

The Alt Berzerker is resistant to Earth, Wind, Weaken, and Tired, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.
