The Coal Bat is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Adventure Story, also available as a summon in the former. It appears mostly around dark, unlit areas, such as Crystal Caverns (in EBF4). It is one of the three members of the Bats enemy class.


Like most Bats, the Coal Bat has a small round body with large ears, wings, and tiny feet. Its unique properties are yellow eyes that appear to be crystals, and a jagged mouth, which sum up into a scary (or perhaps angry) look.

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.

  • Berserked or/and Syphoned → Wing Attack;
  • Otherwise → Wing Attack (1/3), Horrible Sound (1/3), Into Darkness (1/3).


The Coal Bat summon is found in Ashwood Forest, inside the lava cave, after pushing a block to make a shortcut. When used, a Coal Bat will dissipate into a dark cloud of coal powder, dealing little Dark-elemental damage with high chance to debuff all foes' accuracy. It is usually used as an alternative to the Solar Flare skill.
