The Cow Costume is a recurring female armor available in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. Its hat counterpart is the Cow Horns in EBF3 and 4 and the Curly Horns in EBF5.

Description

The Cow Costume features a knee-length dress, detached sleeves, and a bikini top, all in cow print cloth. It also has a red belt with a cow tail on the back, a cowbell choker, and light brown boots.

In EBF5, the Cow Costume has larger black spots and white boots with black trim along the top. It now comes with a low-cut tank top unless Natalie wears it with the Cleavage option enabled, in which case it becomes a pair of straps attached to the belt that cover her breasts and wrap around the back of her neck.

The Cow Costume focuses almost entirely on defensive tactics, with a large HP boost and solid bonuses to both defenses. It also gives the wearer resistance to Dispel and usually has the ability to buff a defensive stat under certain conditions.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Cow Costume has an average boost to Defence and Magic Defence as well as a modest MP increase, but it's most notable for the best HP of any female armor. It also provides a large Defence buff when Natalie takes a powerful attack, which further amplifies her durability by shoring up her weaker defensive stat.

The Cow Costume is arguably the bulkiest armor available to Natalie; the Breastplate has better defenses and only slightly less HP, but it's also hampered by small Evade/Accuracy penalties and common (if minor) elemental weaknesses. However, a lack of offensive boosts or elemental resistances can leave it outclassed by other armors.

The Cow Costume resists Dispel, becoming fully immune to it at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

With good boosts to Defence and Magic Defence and the second-best HP of any female armor, the Cow Costume is a solid defensive option for Natalie or Anna. It also buffs its wearer's Defence if she suffers a powerful attack, allowing her to tank more physical punishment afterwards. However, it has no elemental resistances or additional effects, which can make other armors more tempting to use; the Breastplate is also bulkier overall, despite its penalties.

The Cow Costume has resistance to Dispel, which becomes a full immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Cow Costume is a durable armor with great HP and defenses, as well as some useful effects. While niche, its ability to boost HP while Defending is unlikely to be overridden by other effects, and the debuff boost makes it great for debuff-based builds. The latter trait makes it effective for Natalie, who has access to most of the shared debuff skills, but Anna can also get some mileage from that in addition to taking better advantage of the armor's Earth boost.

The Cow Costume resists Dispel, Earth and Water. The Dispel resistance becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Cow Costume is primarily a defensive armor, but in an unorthodox fashion that also enables it to take a more offensive role. It has above-average Defence and Magic Defence, as well as decent bonuses to Attack and Magic Attack. The plethora of useful status effects it grants on Defend - Good Luck, Regen, and Brave - gives it potential for a Target tank build, both to endure incoming assaults and to potentially deliver stronger retaliation on the next turn. The combination of effects also enables Anna or Natalie to deliver critical hits more reliably while making them immune to having their offenses debuffed.

The Alt Cow Costume resists Earth and Wind, becoming immune to both at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Cow Costume is obtained by finishing a quest for Mattie in The Town.

Trivia

  • The Cow Costume increases the size of its wearer's breasts by roughly 25%. This "hidden effect" applies to both Natalie and Anna; in EBF5, both girls will comment on it the first time they enter battle with the Cow Costume equipped.
    • This effect is disabled if the "Cleavage" option is turned off.
  • Along with the Spider Gown and the Camo Skirt, the Cow Costume is one of the only female armors in EBF5 to have a "censored" version that still shows some of Natalie's cleavage. (The Bubble Dress and the Casual Skirt also show some cleavage, but their design doesn't change if "Cleavage" is disabled.)
