The Black Wasp, also known as Dark Moth and Spikey Moth, is a recurring foe in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It appears primarily in Volcano Peak (in Epic Battle Fantasy 3), Ashwood Forest, and Lankyroot Jungle (in Epic Battle Fantasy 4); in EBF5, it appears in the Data Bunker. It is one of many Giant Insects the party encounters.

Appearance

The Black Wasp appears more to be a fly/moth hybrid rather than a wasp. It has dark grey legs, two large red compound eyes with 3 smaller eyes in the middle, two long, curved antennae, and a thorny rear.

Overview

The Black Wasp is considerably stronger than other Wasp variants; as such, it tends to appear as a late game foe even after having first appeared much earlier on. It has the ability to Poison the party members and debuff their Defence, and also has a fairly strong physical attack. Additionally, in EBF4 it was given the ability to summon more Black Wasps or Red Wasps, making it an especially high-priority target. Notably, the type of damage dealt by this Wasp's attacks varies between games; in EBF3 and EBF5, some of its attacks deal Wind damage, but in EBF4 its attacks deal Poison damage instead.

Fortunately, as with all Wasps, the Black Wasp has several weaknesses that make it easy to dispose of. In EBF2, it's weak to Fire, Thunder, and Wind; EBF3 added a Holy weakness, and in EBF5 it also gained a weakness to Ice.
