The Chimera Bear is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears mostly in the higher parts of the Temple of Godcat.

Appearance

The Chimera Bear is a white-furred bear with a small horn on its head and a pair of small wings on its back. Its paws are a dark brown like its less angelic counterpart. Unlike the other Bears, the Chimera Bear's small white eyes are set in a neutral expression.

Overview

The Chimera Bear is an oddity among its kind, being unable to go Berserk on its own and generally having much greater focus on magic. While it has powerful physical attacks (including the Bears' signature body slam), it can also cast powerful Holy spells with a variety of debilitating status effects (including Dispel, Syphon, and Weaken). It can also cast Guardian on itself to greatly increase its defenses and patch up its below-average Evade.

The Chimera Bear is a powerful tanky threat, especially when paired with a White Clay or Mage Bird; players who do not have several levels above Chimera Bears should be wary, and they are a threat to any player on Epic difficulty. However, its assorted weaknesses give it vulnerabilities to strong attacks such as Antimatter, Eruption, Hellfire, Bamboo Trap and Pulse; since it can't go Berserk like other bears, hitting it hard will not increase its power. More passive parties can stack Poison to quickly eat away at the Chimera Bear's health regardless of how much it buffs itself with Guardian. If its magic is the problem, Syphon can shut it down; just make sure you have enough defense and Stun resistance to handle its subsequent body slams.

Chimera Bears are noteworthy for their ability to very rarely drop Ham (the stat booster for Attack). Towards the end of the game, clusters of Chimera Bears (such as by the final Slime Cat) can provide relatively quick access to Ham.

Trivia

  • The Chimera Bear is the only Bear in the series which cannot go Berserk when severely wounded.
  • Despite being the only Bear in EBF4 that doesn't look angry in-battle, the Chimera Bear's overworld sprite has the same angry expression as other Bears.
  • With its wings and horn, the Chimera Bear appears to be the ursine equivalent of an alicorn (a.k.a. a winged unicorn or a horned Pegasus).
