The Brown Bear is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5, and a summon in the latter. In EBF4, it mostly appears in the Ashwood Forest, while in EBF5 they tend to appear in the Frozen Valley. It is one of the five members of the Bears foe class

Appearance

Brown Bear resembles a real-life grizzly bear, with rough brown fur, a tan snout and several claws. It has a small brown circle for a tail, and has two small rounded ears.

Overview

The Brown Bear is an elite foe that combines solid health with sheer non-elemental power. While it is fairly easy to wear down, as it takes damage the Brown Bear will sharply increase its damage output by shifting its moveset to a more powerful arsenal. Despite the general lack of statuses, Brown Bears can also inflict Stun. However, it also has another ace up its sleeve; like most Bears, the Brown Bear is able to Berserk itself when it takes a serious blow, which will make it much more powerful. While this can be negated with Ice or Water attacks (Cloudburst in particular comes to mind), the Brown Bear resists both elements.

Note that in EBF5, the Brown Bear will tend to attack the player who attacked it last.

Between its high powered attacks, ability to occasionally Stun, and escalating moveset, the Brown Bear is not a foe to be taken lightly when first encountered.

Brown Bears resist Ice, Wind and Water. However, they are weak to both Fire and Poison, so the players can deal heavy damage through the likes of Eruption, Bullet Hell and Vines. However, one should be careful to not inadvertently make the Brown Bear a Berserked juggernaut.

In EBF4, the Brown Bear is notable for dropping Ham (as is the Chimera Bear), albeit with a 2% drop rate. It drops no steroids in EBF5.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • ≥49% HP → Maul (1/3), Bite (1/3), Body Slam (1/3);
  • <49% HP → Bite (1/3), Body Slam (1/3), Frenzied Barrage (1/3).

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

  • If catch score >55, all players are Lovable, and the Bear is not Berserked → Surrender;
  • If catch score >55, all players are Lovable, and the Bear is Berserked → Roll;
  • If Enrage was triggered this turn → Roll;
  • <49% HP or when Berserked → 6x Hit (1/3);
    • If Dump was already used or if Mature is turned off → Body Slam (2/3);
    • Otherwise → Body Slam (1/3), Dump (1/3);
  • Otherwise → Maul (1/3), Bite (1/3), Body Slam (1/3).

Additionally, if any front line player has equipment that scares Beasts, the Brown Bear will inflict Berserk on themselves at the start of their turn (this does not take up their turn).

The Bear will target the last player who attacked them with their attacks (auto-skills from equipment are also taken into account, except when it's a summon).

Summon

In EBF5, the foe can be captured to be used as a summon, or be randomly summoned by Viking Fur (male armor).

Mauls a foe with non-elemental attacks. Does much more damage if the user is hurt, and if party members are dead.
  • The max power is 1000.

Single 100*/6 Stat Attack ---- -- -- -- 100% 10% 10%
Note: Power gain is same as Revenge's: (100 - Summoner's remaining HP % rounded down) ^ 1.3, up to ≈398 at <1% HP, plus 150 power for every dead player, including backup ones, up to ≈998 power in total; unlike Revenge, if the end result is <100, it becomes 100 instead. This gives the Brown Bear summon a minimum power of 100 and a maximum of 998.
