Dark Stalker

The Dark Stalker is a dark-elemental sword available to Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.


The Dark Stalker is a jagged, thorn-like blade made out of a brown metal. The guard is adorned with a miniature human skull with faint red lights in the eye sockets, with two horn-like protrusions pointing downard and four different metal spikes pointing upwards. The handle is made out of a different material than the blade itself, in this case being some sort of black thing. The pommel is made out of the same metal as the blade.

The Dark Stalker is a support weapon focused around its ability to inflict Attack debuffs and the Bad Luck status effect to decrease the enemies' overall offensive capability. To aid it further in weakening foes, its unleash can inflict Syphon. Stat wise, the Dark Stalker only has a below average bonus to Attack and Magic Attack. Despite boosting Dark skills, Matt only can learn Screamer making this a largely irrelevant effect. What makes the Dark Stalker potentially useful is the fact that not only does it have a very high chance of inflicting Bad Luck, it also has one of the most efficient Attack debuffs outside of summons. It essentially makes Matt's Slicing Cyclone tantamount to a 1-turn cooldown Screamer. Although for Bad Luck related set ups the Golden Axe is a better choice due to superior stats, the Dark Stalker is useful for Attack-debuff based sets. Regardless, the Dark Stalker is quite niche; it lacks the stats or secondary effects to be useful in a day-to-day Matt build.

The Dark Stalker provides resistances to Bio, Dark, Syphon, and Disable. Only the latter two resistances becomes immunities at level 5.
