The Bone Bat is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. They are typically found underground, the Mystic Woods and sometimes in the areas surrounding The Rapture. It is a member of the Bats enemy group.


The Bone Bat is a blackish, sickly looking bat with leathery wings. It wears the bones of its prey, which includes the bones of rodents and apparently a bird of some sort. The skull is worn as a "mask", while two femurs are perched behind the Bone Bat's head.


The Bone Bat is a mildly unnerving foe who, despite their concerning status effects, is easily put down.

The Bone Bat can use a small variety of Wind and Dark attacks; fortunately, all are quite weak. However, the Bone Bat is more alarmingly capable of inflicting Target and Doom. While by no means capable of stopping the party outright, the Bone Bat can give a single player undue attention from other foes or require the player to take a turn to cure Doom. On harder difficulties, Bone Bats can inflict Shroud and debuff Defence, but both of these are fairly trivial.

Bone Bats are immune to Earth and absorb Dark, but are weak to both Wind and Holy. A quick shot of Shockwave or Blessed Barrage should take them down easy.
