"This weapon is totally historically accurate, I'm sure of it. I saw it in an anime once!"
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
  • The Black Fang in EBF5
  • The Black Fang in EBF2 and EBF3

The Black Fang is a bio-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 2, 3 and 5.

Description

The Black Fang has a single-edged blade with runes and small spikes near the base. It has a long brown hilt with a small red guard and pommel.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 5, the Black Fang has a few noticeable differences. The three small spikes on the blade were changed to two fangs, and there is also string tied through the red hole at the top of the grip.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Black Fang specializes in spreading the Poison status. It provides solid boosts to both offenses, as well as sizable bonuses to both Accuracy and Evade.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Black Fang has a fair amount of Attack and Magic Attack, along with decent boosts to Accuracy and Evade. It specializes in poisoning foes by powering up Nettle and inflicting a light Poison status with its Normal Attack (which it can also use as a counter if Matt is attacked), and its Unleash inflicts an even greater amount of Poison on the target. With this weapon equipped, it won't take Matt long at all to stack massive amounts of Poison on his foes, allowing the party to focus on buffing and healing while the status does all the damage for them.

The Black Fang has a strong Poison resistance along with weaker resistances to Earth and Dark. None of these become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Black Fang offers a good amount of Attack and Magic Attack, as well as a nice Accuracy bonus. It can inflict a sizable amount of Poison stacks and drain HP with weapon-elemental attacks such as Slicing Cyclone and Legend.; these skills also have a chance to unleash Overgrowth. While effective for wearing down foes over time (such as part of a Virus/Poison party), the Emerald Smasher is a better option for direct Bio damage.

The Black Fang resists Bio, Dark, Bad Luck and Curse, with all of them becoming immunities when maxed.

Equip Remix

The Alt Black Fang has above-average Attack, Magic Attack, and Evade, along with an array of skills that encourage an offensive support role. It powers up Bio attacks and buff skills while increasing the chance of inflicting status effects, which works nicely with the Tired it can inflict with Weapon-elemental skills. These skills also have a high chance of debuffing enemy Accuracy, which only worsens as Tired takes effect. The sword can also summon a Panda Bear for added Bio damage and Poison support, although this is unreliable at best.

The Alt Black Fang resists Bio and Dark. Neither becomes an immunity at Level 5.
