The Cat Ears are a piece of female headgear available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Their armor counterpart is the Cat Costume in EBF3 and the Maid Outfit in EBF4 and EBF5.

Description

The Cat Ears consist of a headband with two pointed cat ears on it. The design has changed slightly in every appearance:

  • In EBF3, they are orange with pink insides.
  • In EBF4, they are black with pink insides.
  • In EBF5, they are black with pink insides and a small tuft of white fur at the base of each ear.

The Cat Ears generally provide a small boost to Defence and Magic Defence, but their best trait is their great increase to Evade and Accuracy.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Cat Ears have the best Evade and the second-best Accuracy of any female hat (only beaten by the Skull Hairclip in the latter), but they have no special effects and their defences are among the worst of any female hat. While useful in specific situations, Natalie will generally prefer other headgear for day-to-day use; the Pink Flower has far more Magic Defence and two elemental resistances (although it also has a Fire weakness), while the similarly frail Star Hairclip offers useful boosts to MP, Magic Attack, and Natalie's natural non-elemental spells.

The Cat Ears resist Stun and Death, becoming immune to the former at Level 5. Note that the Death resistance does not prevent Doom from being inflicted.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Cat Ears are quite frail, with the lowest Defence and Magic Defence boosts of any female headgear. However, their Evade is only surpassed by the even frailer Slime Bunny Ears, and they are the only female hat to boost the wearer's Accuracy. While theoretically useful (especially for Anna, who already has above-average Evade), their lack of special effects and meaningful resistances makes them subpar when compared to other options that become available later.

The Cat Ears are resistant to Curse, which becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Cat Ears have poor defences, being tied with the Royal Crown and the Ninja Chopsticks for the lowest non-zero defensive boost of any female hat. However, they compensate with a fair bit of Evade and Accuracy; among female headgear, they're fourth-best in the former and third-best in the latter. They grant the Good Luck status to the wearer when she Defends herself, and also have a high chance of randomly summoning Cat Wizard for a powerful single-target heal. This gives them some utility by allowing for free application of Good Luck without the Hoop Earrings (which further improves their best stats), and the frequent Cat Wizard heals can take some pressure off of the party.

The Cat Ears resist Curse, Bad Luck, Weaken and Tired. They become immune to all of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

While it won't exactly give them "Nine Lives," the Alt Cat Ears can make the girls feel a little more like NoLegs. Their Defence and Magic Defence are nonexistent, but they have great Evade and Accuracy, as well as a small chance to grant Auto-Revive between turns. They also boost capturing chances, which gives them some utility for catching difficult foes.

The Alt Cat Ears give their wearer resistance to Curse, Bad Luck, Weaken and Tired. All of them become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Cat Ears can be bought in the Equipment Shop for 500 gold.
