The Black Widow is a Dark-elemental bow available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Black Widow is a black metal bow vaguely designed to resemble a spider's head. It has two jagged projections on the tips of its limbs and a pair of smaller ones near the grips. Eight red gems are set in the bow behind the smaller projections to resemble clusters of eyes; two large ones and six smaller ones.

In EBF5, the Black Widow gained red velvet details around the grip and at the base of its limbs. These details become brown when the bow is wielded by Annabelle.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

True to its name, the Black Widow specializes in degrading enemy defenses with its ability to Curse the victims of its weapon-elemental skills. It provides solid Attack, but has pitiful Magic Attack and no other stat boosts. Additionally, Anna is unable to effectively make use of its boost to Dark skills, despite it being able to unleash Dark Spikes on occasion.

The Black Widow is most notable for its Normal Attack counter, which can let Anna passively spread status effects. Unfortunately, the Angel Wing is more effective due to automatically casting Arrow Rain; on the other hand, the Thorn Bow outclasses the Black Widow as a physically offensive bow.

The Black Widow provides resistances to Dark and Curse, becoming immune to the latter at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Black Widow is an offensive weapon with good Attack and modest Magic Attack. While not overly useful for combat - especially since Anna doesn't have many options to exploit its boost to Dark skills - it's a good weapon for capturing foes. It randomly casts Spider Swarm between turns, debuffing foes' Evade and giving them Bad Luck without damaging them. It also increases the chance of enemies deciding to Surrender, further boosting Screamer and having nice synergy with Bow Whack.

The Black Widow is resistant to Dark, CurseBad Luck, Doom and Instant Death, with all but the first becoming an immunity at Level 5.

The Alt Black Widow is a Bio-based bow (although it still boosts Dark skills) with decent Attack, mediocre Magic Attack, and a great Accuracy boost. Its weapon-elemental attacks drain HP and may unleash Spider Web as a bonus skill, which debuffs Evade while afflicting the target with Bad Luck. More notably, these skills have a high chance of inflicting Doom with a 1-turn timer; with status-boosting gear, Anna can wipe out entire waves of foes with Arrow Rain. However, since the Alt Black Widow lacks a status boost itself, a "Doom Archer" build with three pieces of status-boosting gear and the Fat Fly Flair offers a higher chance of success.

The Alt Black Widow resists Dark, CurseBad Luck, Doom and Instant Death, becoming immune to all but the first at Level 5.
