Black Hole is a Dark-elemental Limit Break in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, for both Natalie and Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, and for Natalie, Lance and NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Black Hole creates an implosion of pure darkness which expands very rapidly before exploding violently. This deals massive Dark damage to all enemies, as well as some recoil damage to the player's team. Black Hole also has a chance to inflict Instant Death to anything on the battlefield prior to EBF5; starting with EBF5, it has a chance to inflict Heavy to only foes, while it applies Instant Death to the caster alone.
Black Hole is essentially a Dark version of Supernova, boasting not only obscene power but also recoil damage. In fact, Black Hole is one of the strongest skills in the game (barring Cleaver, Supernova and select Summons) and is the single strongest fully-elemental one (barring select Summons), meaning it has the single highest damage potential assuming one can find a foe with the maximum Dark weakness (a.k.a. -100% Dark resistance). Unfortunately, it does have some recoil, which is not too dangerous, as well as a small chance of hitting the party with Instant Death prior to EBF5.
While there are considerable amounts of endgames foes that are immune to Black Hole in EBF3 and EBF5 (as well as The Destroyer in EBF4), Black Hole remains an incredibly powerful skill and one more than capable of wiping foes that don't resist it off the face of the Earth.
In EBF5, Black Hole was changed to only deal heavy recoil damage and Instant Death on the user, and its status effect for attacking foes was also changed to Heavy. Unfortunately, the recoil effects are incredibly powerful and accurate, so the player basically needs to revive the caster after use...or preferably, have Auto-Revive/Bless in place to keep buffs on.
Black Hole has no negative side effects on the user's side when cast by foes.

Black Hole returns as a Special Skill available for Natalie and Lance. It is technically unlocked at the start of the game, though Natalie is the first character who can learn it.
