The Big Muddy Bush is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears mostly in Lankyroot Jungle. It is a member of the Big Bush enemy class, and a makeshift unit of Kitten Army.


The Big Muddy Bush looks like a large blob of mud with two small green eyes and two leaves coming out from the sides. There is also a Cat riding in a saddle atop of it, chosen at random; near the saddle, a random flower can appear, with 1/6 chance for each of three flowers and 3/6 chance for none.


The Big Muddy Bush is a living cat fort which fights with dirt, bombs, and summoning horns which result in a whole bunch of additional foes arriving. Due to its muddy exterior, the Big Muddy Bush is slightly more resilient to Fire than its greener counterpart; outside of this, the Big Muddy Bush is identical to the Big Green Bush, and is worn out by the Poison status and Fire, Earth and Poison attacks just as easily; the same applies to anything it summons.
