Element Bomb.png

Bomb is a recurring element in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It represents explosions and high-tech weaponry, such as guns, missiles, and (of course) bombs. It is usually effective against rock-based and mechanical foes, but ineffective against certain fire and aquatic enemies.

Characteristics

The Bomb element is one of the more uncommon elements in the EBF series. In the first two games, the only Bomb-related attacks available to the players were Matt's Airstrike skill and the Bob-Omb/Hand Bomb item. On the enemy side, bomb attacks were similarly uncommon, with only a few high-level enemies having them.

When Lance became playable in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, he gained all of the party's Bomb-based skills. The Bomb element was widely considered to be the single best element in EBF3, as it was effective against numerous types of powerful enemies (including Clays, Golems, and the fearsome Monoliths) and only resisted by a few late-game creatures.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4 saw a slight decline in the Bomb element's usefulness, as several enemies gained resistances to it (most notably Turtles and Jellies). However, the Bomb element was also much more accessible to the party, with all four players gaining bomb-based weapons and the introduction of a few new bomb-based skills. Bomb attacks usually have a chance to Stagger their targets.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 was made even more accessible, every character can now learn at least one bomb-elemental skill. Allowing each character to make use of Bomb-Elemental weapons and equipment. However; only two characters, Lance and Anna, have natural access to bomb-elemental skills, forcing the remaining three characters to use shared skills. Unfortunately, there are only two such skills for the Bomb Element, Requiring the player decide on who to give the skill to.
