The Crimson Razorback, known simply as Razorback before EBF5, is a recurring sword-like guitar in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is usually a part of Matt's arsenal.

Description

The Razorback is a red, V-shaped guitar modelled after real-world Dean Razorback guitar. Before becoming one of available weapons in EBF2, it appeared in Epic Battle Fantasy, being wielded by Canti.

In all of its appearances, the Crimson Razorback gives the highest level of Magic Attack available to any Sword, making it one of the few viable options for the highly unorthodox Magic-oriented Matt. However, it provides a pitifully low physical Attack boost. In EBF3, the Razorback gives a high MP boost but due to the lack of MP in EBF5, the Crimson Razorback provides a Magic Defence boost instead.

The Crimson Razorback in EBF5 has the ability to cast Gust as a bonus skill, allowing it to make use of its Magic Attack even when Syphoned. It can also randomly cast Power Metal between turns at level 5, allowing for occasional healing and additional uses of one of Matt's few magical attacks.

The Razorback has an odd set of resistances: in EBF3, it has a weakness to Thunder which remains constant at all levels. However, in EBF5 this weakness becomes a resistance, and the Crimson Razorback also has a resistance to Wind, Syphon and Disable. Syphon and Disable become immunities at level 5.

Until EBF5 its element % was considerably lower than most other weapons.
