The Deep Blue is a Water-elemental gun available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4, and 5.

Description

The Deep Blue is a large cannon made out of a blue metal alloy. It has a relatively short barrel starting at the trigger, and ending a little bit above the front grip. The gun's mechanism is located behind the grip, where the user will rest his shoulder at during firing. Dangerous bayonets protrude over the barrel and at the gun's butt, allowing the user to launch a melee attack on both sides but also posing the risk of hurting themselves. This never comes up in-game, but may explain the Evade penalty it gives in EBF5.

In EBF5, the Deep Blue had a slight visual update, most notably gaining a small wire along the bottom behind the grip. It also comes with a blue and grey revolver with a black grip and a small blade under the barrel.

The Deep Blue is designed for physical offense, with an Attack boost generally only surpassed by the Chainsaw Gun; on the other hand, its Magic Attack is below-average at best. It is generally resistant (but never immune) to Water and Fire, and it enables Lance to counter enemy attacks with a weapon-elemental physical skill, which may also unleash a bonus spell to give him a source of Water damage.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Deep Blue has a big Attack boost and a subpar Magic Attack boost, as well as the distinction of being only one of two Water-elemental weapons at the party's disposal in the game (along with the Nimbus staff). It allows Lance to counter with his Normal Attack; like the rest of his Weapon-elemental skills, it has a chance to cast Flood on hit. Its Unleash gives Lance an Attack boost, further improving his physical damage output.

While Lance tends to be more magically-inclined, the Deep Blue holds a niche as a useful source of Water damage. It's also arguably Lance's best weapon for physical damage; the Chainsaw has more Attack, but it suffers from dangerous status weaknesses. Furthermore, the Deep Blue can actually outdamage the Chainsaw due to a quirk of EBF3's Berserk mechanics; its Flood unleash benefits from the status's power boost, allowing Lance to inflict massive damage to Water-weak foes.

The Deep Blue strongly resists Water and slightly resists Fire, maxing out at 50% and 30% respectively. It also has a slight Thunder weakness that doesn't change at any upgrade level.

With great Attack and poor Magic Attack, the Deep Blue is a physically-inclined weapon that doesn't necessarily play to Lance's natural strengths. However, it makes an effort to compensate for that by giving him a Normal Attack counter and the ability to unleash Geyser with his Weapon-elemental skills (including the aforementioned counter), which gives him a way to exploit the gun's boost to Water skills.

As a physically offensive gun, the Deep Blue's main advantage is its ability to give Lance a source of Water damage while lacking any stat penalties like the Heavy Claw or The Phantom. It's slightly weaker than the Chainsaw Gun, but its elemental boost can make up the difference against the relevant foes, and it has a little more Magic Attack to fall back on if needed (although it's usually better to switch to a more magically-potent gun in those cases).

The Deep Blue resists Water and Fire, but is weak to Thunder. Its resistances max out at 50%, but its weakness remains constant no matter how much it is forged.

Normal

Befitting its blade-ridden appearance, the Deep Blue gives Lance an incredible Attack increase; only the Green Goliath and the Chainsaw Gun surpass it in this regard. Unfortunately, its Magic Attack isn't even half as impressive and it also lowers Evade by a fair amount. It powers up Lance's Water skills and allows his Weapon-elemental skills to occasionally Wet targets while rarely unleashing Typhoon for heavy damage and additional Wet stacks. It also lets Lance counter attacks with Armor Crush, which can trigger its on-hit effects in addition to dealing a fair amount of damage and Dispel.

While the Deep Blue can be used to Wet foes for Lance's allies to exploit, it is much better suited to being the core of a physically-offensive assault. Chill support is helpful to boost its Water damage and potentially turn its Wet stacks into Freeze; additionally, the Meow Meow Badge can make its Typhoon unleash a little more consistent.

The Deep Blue resists Water, Fire, Wet, and Dry, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

The Alt Deep Blue is an all-out offensive weapon with impressive Attack, pathetic Magic Attack, and a slight penalty to both of Lance's defenses. It empowers both Water and Bomb skills while giving Lance some options to exploit the former; it can summon Bubbler MX-01 between turns and unleash Typhoon with Weapon-elemental skills. While powerful, both effects are unreliable at best; Lance will probably want some shared skills to better utilize his gun's Water boost (and its Bomb boost, given the long cooldown times on his natural Bomb skills).

The Alt Deep Blue resists Water, Bomb, Wet, and Dry, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Deep Blue is found at the end of Vegetable Forest, inside a chest available after defeating Jack.
