  • Matt & Lance in the Captain's Hat in EBF4.
  • Matt wearing the EBF3 incarnation of the Captains Hat.

The Captain's Hat is a male hat found in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5 . Its armor counterpart is the Captain's Shirt, and its female counterpart is the Pirate Hat.

Description

In EBF3 it appears as a black pirate hat with white trim and the image of a small skull and crossed swords on the side. In EBF4, it was redesigned as a black bicorne hat with a large skull and crossbones insignia in the middle. It is heavily associated with Matt, being his headgear of choice in Epic Battle Fantasy 1 and 2, and his default headgear in following games.

Regardless of appearance, the Captain's Hat provides solid defensive stats, with middling defenses but moderate HP and Evade boosts. This is admittedly not quite as durable as some other hats (such as the Space Helmet), but is reasonable for the first available piece of equipment.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Captain's Hat has a decent Defence stat, minor Magic Defence and Evade, and trivial boosts to HP and MP. It increases the power of the Hand Bomb item, giving Matt a decent source of Bomb damage in case Lance's abilities aren't sufficient in that regard.

The Captain's Hat resists Water, up to 50% at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Captain's Hat provides middling Defence and Magic Defence, modest Evade and HP, and two elemental resistances; however, it has no special effects. While balanced, it may be outclassed by more specialized headgear as the game progresses.

The Captain's Hat resists Water and Bomb, with neither becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Captain's Hat has a fair bit of Defence and Magic Defence along with some Evade and HP, making it a fairly well-balanced headgear. Its most notable trait is its useful ability to increase the odds of inflicting status conditions, which makes it indispensable for male status-infliction builds, especially for NoLegs.

The Captain's Hat has Dark and Bomb resistances, but neither becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Captain's Hat offers middling Defence and Magic Defence, as well as small boosts to Attack, Magic Attack, and Evade. It can occasionally grant Good Luck to the wearer and summon a Matt Doll between turns to greatly buff an ally's Attack while giving them Bless.

The Alt Captain's Hat resists Dark and Water. Neither becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Available from the beginning of the game, being Matt's default hat equipped.
