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 In EBF5, it is currently exclusive to the paid Steam release of the game and the outdated free Battle Demo.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 tiny spikes and serrations along its edges. The black crossguard vaguely resembles 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 tip to its blade, similar to the 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.

The Devil's Sunrise has had dramatically different stats and abilities in each of its appearances - even discounting its change from sword to cat toy - but some of its more consistent traits include a resistance to Fire damage (either directly or via Burn/Scorch resistance), a boost to the wielder's Dark skills, and a Dark-based unleash to improve its damage output.

Epic Battle Fantasy

The Devil's Sunrise drains MP (an effect that will be associated with the Rune Blade in later games), 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; unfortunately, Matt has trouble making use of its Dark boost. Fright and Screamer have low base power, while Sacrifice is very gimmicky; that leaves Dark Flare and the sword's own Haunt unleash as the only skills 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's Attack (the third highest in the game) in exchange for a significant Magic Attack penalty; while this drastically improves most of NoLegs's attacks, it also weakens his healing skills. Defensively, it grants solid boosts to Defence and Magic Defence at the expense of a minor Evade penalty.

The Weapon-elemental skills of the Devil's Sunrise can unleash Black Spikes for some extra damage that benefits from its Dark boost, and they also have a strong chance of inflicting Doom. While NoLegs can turn this into Instant Death with Bad Luck support (including his own Water Whirl), the cat toy's offensive stats make it far better suited for an all-out attacker build.

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 have an irritating tendency to inflict Shroud on their targets. This can be nullified by hitting the affected foe with Holy or Wind attacks; alternatively, NoLegs can use a status-changing Flair, which also lets him slightly support his team (or himself, if he's using the Peace Badge).

The Alt Devil's Sunrise also applies Shroud to NoLegs between turns, making it much harder to track his condition outside of brief respites from allied Reflex support. However, Shroud is more of an annoyance than a true drawback; moreover, it gives the cat toy great synergy with the Alt Coat of Teeth, which has similar physical-leaning stats, a second 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.

Trivia

  • The Devil's Sunrise is a reference to the sword of the same name in MapleStory.
  • Due to similarities in its design and origin, the Devil's Sunrise sword may be considered a Dark-based counterpart to the Heaven's Gate. On the other hand, the cat toy version could be considered a Dark counterpart of the King's Guard, due to certain similarities in their stats and resistances.
  • The Devil's Sunrise is the only sword from EBF1 to not reappear in EBF2.
