  • NoLegs' Cat Toy in EBF5
  • Sword in EBF4

The Devil's Sunrise is a recurring Dark-elemental weapon in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is a sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 1 and 4, as well as one of the Cat Toys available for NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. In EBF5, it is currently exclusive to the paid Steam release of the game and the outdated free Battle Demo.

Description

In EBF1 and 4, the Devil's Sunrise has a long silver blade with a red center and many spikes and serrations along its edges. The guard is black, vaguely resembling a pair of bat wings, with a red gem in the center. The hilt is dark grey, with black details on either end and small red studs on the pommel.

In EBF5, the Devil's Sunrise was completely overhauled as a cat toy for NoLegs. It is now a small black sword with a dark red hilt, no crossguard, and a cross-shaped blade, similar to Equilibrium. It comes with a black-and-red shield with markings resembling a simple, monstrous face and three metallic spikes along the top; this gives it a resemblance to either a demonic cat paw or a head with horns.

Epic Battle Fantasy

The Devil's Sunrise drains MP (this function will later be associated with Rune Blade), which can be used to save on Ethers. However, it heavily penalizes Attack, which is the stat that the drainage-compatible skills depend on. It also increases Matt's Defence, Magic Attack, and Magic Defence by small amounts.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Devil's Sunrise provides a great boost to both Accuracy and Evade, but its offensive stats are below-average. It is effectively focused on inflicting Curse; it has high Accuracy, counters with the extremely accurate Quick Slash, and can unleash Haunt with any Weapon-elemental skill. This hits a foe for moderate magical Dark damage, but more importantly afflicts them with Curse to slowly degrade their defenses and leave them easy pickings for the rest of the party. Natalie especially appreciates Curse, due to the boost it gives to Judgement.

The Devil's Sunrise functions well late-game in the Temple of Godcat where many enemies are weak to Dark. Although the sword boosts the power of Dark skills, Matt has trouble making use of this boost. Fright and Screamer already have low base power, while Sacrifice is very gimmicky. Dark Flare is perhaps the only skill that can take advantage of the elemental boost.

The Devil's Sunrise resists Fire, Thunder, and Ice. None of these become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Devil's Sunrise is a potent yet balanced cat toy with a very large boost to NoLegs' Attack (the third highest in the game) in exchange for a significant Magic Attack penalty. While this does drastically improve most of NoLegs' skills, it also weakens his healing skills. Defensively, it grants solid boosts to Defence and Magic Defence at the expense of a minor Evade penalty. It has a strong chance of inflicting Doom - which NoLegs can turn into Instant Death with the Bad Luck applied by Water Whirl - but its offensive stats make it far better suited for an all-out attacker build. It can also unleash Black Spikes with Weapon-elemental skills for some extra damage.

The Devil's Sunrise provides resistances to Holy, Tired, Weaken, Burn, and Scorch. It grants an immunity to all of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Devil's Sunrise is a supreme weapon for a pure physical attacker, with astonishing Attack and good defenses. It powers up NoLegs's Dark skills - including its own Black Spikes unleash - but its Weapon-elemental skills also inflict Shroud, which can make things slightly more annoying. This can be nullified with a status-changing Flair, which also lets NoLegs slightly support his team (or himself, if he's using the Peace Badge), but the weapon will also apply Shroud to NoLegs between turns, making it much harder to track his condition outside of brief respites from allied Reflex support.

That being said, the Alt Devil's Sunrise has great synergy with the Alt Coat of Teeth, which has similar stats, an additional Dark boost, and an identical auto-Shroud penalty (which effectively adds no further hindrance when stacked).

The Alt Devil's Sunrise resists Fire, Dark, Burn, and Scorch. The latter two become an immunity at Level 5.
