The Dark Bobble, also known as Dark Bauble in EBF4, is a female headgear available in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. Its armor counterpart is the Dark Gown.

Description

The Dark Bobble is a pair of glassy orbs; when worn, it styles part of the wearer's hair into short pigtails. In EBF4, it was black with a faint purple glow at its center and around its edges; in EBF5, it is completely purple and comes with purple strings to help secure it.

The Dark Bobble's best asset is its Magic Attack, usually having the highest boost of the stat among all female headgear. Additionally, it tends to increase the wearer's Magic Defence and gives them a Dark resistance.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Dark Bauble grants massive Magic Attack and a small amount of Magic Defence, with no additional effects. It's primarily effective for an all-out offensive Natalie build; defensively, it's tied with the Drill Bits for the third-lowest Magic Defense of female hats, and it has no physical bulk whatsoever.

The Dark Bauble resists DarkDeath, and Doom, with the latter two becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Normal

The Dark Bobble has substantial boosts to Magic Attack and Magic Defence, as well as the ability to greatly buff the wearer's Magic Attack when she Defends herself. This can be used to remove Natalie's reliance on Star Power and circumvent its cooldown in order to give her and Lance a Magic Attack buff in two turns as opposed to three.

The Dark Bobble is best used for its unparalleled Magic Attack, since the Pope Hat has more Magic Defence and the Fur Hat has superior overall bulk.

The Dark Bobble offers resistances to DarkSyphon, and Disable. It becomes immune to the latter two at Level 5.

The Alt Dark Bobble provides decent boosts to Magic Defence and Magic Attack, as well as a slightly mediocre Defence increase. Between turns, it has a chance to cast either Space Distortion or Distortion Field, dealing magical Dark damage to one or all foes, respectively; more notably, both skills can also apply Invisible and debuff Magic Defence. This allows the hat to significantly amplify the party's magical damage output every once in a while, which serves as its main niche when compared to other female hats with superior Magic Attack.

The Alt Dark Bobble is resistant to DarkSyphon, and Disable. It becomes immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Dark Bauble is found in Graybone Cemetery, in a chest outside the Left Tomb, The chest is below a fallen tree and two skulls impaled on bones, and is guarded by a battle that appears as an Evil Worm.
