'''[[File:5Sawblade.png|frame|Difficulty represented by a [[Sawblade]] in the in-game options menu of {{EBF|5}}.]]Difficulty''' is a measure of how hard a video game is. Although highly subjective, many games have a difficulty setting that allows players to set the general level of challenge they will face.
In the [[Epic Battle Fantasy series|''Epic Battle Fantasy'' series]], there are four difficulty levels available: Easy, Normal, Hard, and Epic. The main differences are the enemies; as the difficulty level rises, they gain more HP, their attacks do more damage, their defenses become stronger, and they may gain new abilities or traits to make them even more threatening. 
 
==''[[Epic Battle Fantasy]]''==
 
In the original game, Easy difficulty reduced enemy strength to 80% of their Normal difficulty level. Hard difficulty gave them a 20% power boost over Normal, and Epic raised it a further 20% (140% total).
 
==''[[Epic Battle Fantasy 2]]''==
 
The difficulties remained the same in EBF2, but their attributes had changed slightly. With Normal difficulty as the benchmark for enemy stats, the difficulties are as follows:

In the {{EBF|series}}, there are five difficulty levels available for selection: '''Zero''' (''EBF5 ''on) '''Easy''', '''Normal''', '''Hard''', and '''Epic'''. The main differences are in the enemies: as the difficulty level rises, they gain more HP, their attacks do more damage, and they may gain new abilities or traits to make them even more threatening. Some [[medals]] can only be achieved on higher difficulties. Exact attributes of difficulties change between games, becoming more drastic with each game.

*Enemies with elemental absorption often spawn with a status effect that regenerates them every turn (e.g. Flame Sprites have Burn, and Sludge Slimes have Poison).
 
*Yellow Jellies, Thunder Sprites, and Thunder Elementals come into battle with the Charged status, allowing them to use their most powerful attacks from the get-go.

Like previous games, higher difficulties also grant special bonuses to enemies themselves or their abilities. In this game, all of these bonuses apply to both Hard and Epic difficulties. Below is a list of examples, general ideas of which also apply to ''EBF3'' and ''5''.
  +
* Some enemies gain new skills, which can replace weaker ones, e.g., [[Florn]] trades [[Nettle]] for [[Vines]].
  +
** [[Godcat]]'s battle machines and [[River Squid]] will use [[Limit Break]]s at low HP ([[Absolute Zero]] for [[The Creator]], [[Supernova]] for [[The Destroyer]], [[Tsunami]] for River Squid).
  +
** Certain enemy attacks summon other attacks, e.g., [[Glacier Turtle]]'s shell smash casts [[Tundra]] on a random player, besides applying buffs onto the turtle.
  +
* Many enemy attacks have new statuses/debuffs or increased status/debuff chance or strength, e.g., [[Praetorian]]'s dash has twice the chance to inflict {{s|Instant Death}}.
  +
* Many enemy buffing abilities apply extra buffs/statuses or have stronger buffs/statuses, e.g., [[Mighty Oak]]'s self-buff applies {{s|Brave}} on top of stat buffs.
  +
* Some enemies come into the battle with a specific status effect on them already, e.g., [[Lightning Sprite]] and [[Thunder Elemental]] start with the {{s|Charge}} status, allowing them to use their most powerful attacks from the get-go.
  +
** Certain enemies with elemental absorption(s) spawn with a status effect that deals damage of that element and thus regenerates their HP, e.g., [[Sludge Slime]] gets {{s|Poison}}.
  +
* Foes that can summon allies, such as [[Black Wasp]] or [[Big Green Bush]], often have increased spawn chance or spawn extra allies.

Difficulty represented by a Sawblade in the in-game options menu of Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Difficulty
is a measure of how hard a video game is. Although highly subjective, many games have a difficulty setting that allows players to set the general level of challenge they will face.

In the Epic Battle Fantasy series, there are five difficulty levels available for selection: Zero (EBF5 on) Easy, Normal, Hard, and Epic. The main differences are in the enemies: as the difficulty level rises, they gain more HP, their attacks do more damage, and they may gain new abilities or traits to make them even more threatening. Some medals can only be achieved on higher difficulties. Exact attributes of difficulties change between games, becoming more drastic with each game.

Epic Battle Fantasy Edit

None of the difficulties affect anything other than enemy HP and damage.

  • Easy — Enemies have 80% of their normal HP and damage.
  • Normal — 100%
  • Hard — 120%
  • Epic — 140%

Epic Battle Fantasy 2 Edit

Enemy HP is no longer boosted on higher difficulties.

  • Easy — Enemies have 80% of their normal HP and damage.
  • Normal — 100%
  • Hard — Enemies do 120% of their normal damage. Some enemies gain new abilities.
  • Epic — Enemies do 140% of their normal damage. Many enemies gain special bonuses to themselves or their abilities, e.g., Giga Golem's melee attacks inflict stronger debuffs with higher chance.

Medals Edit

  • Middle Tier — Beat the game on Normal difficulty.
  • Leet Tier — Beat the game on Hard difficulty.
  • God Tier — Beat the game on Epic difficulty.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3 Edit

  • Easy — Enemies have 70% of their normal HP and damage.
  • Normal — 100%
  • Hard — Enemies do 130% of their normal damage. Unlike in EBF2, nothing else is affected.
  • Epic — Enemies do 160% of their normal damage. Many enemies gain special bonuses to themselves or their abilities, e.g., Green Slimes begin battle with the Poison ailment, regenerating HP every turn.

Medals Edit

  • Hero — Beat the game on Hard or Epic difficulty.
  • Legend — Beat the game on Epic difficulty.

Adventure Story Edit

This Epic Battle Fantasy spinoff may have changed genres from turn-based RPG to action platformer, but the difficulty levels are generally the same as the main series.

This section is incomplete. You can help Epic Battle Fantasy Wiki by adding required information to it.
To do: Confirm if these values are correct. They look identical to EBF4's, and that is worrying.
  • Easy — Enemies have 50% of their normal HP and damage. Falling into a pit inflicts 5 damage to Matt.
  • Normal — 100%. Pits deal 10 damage.
  • Hard — 150%. Pits deal 15 damage.
  • Epic — 200%. Pits deal 20 damage.

Medals Edit

  • Foe Exterminator - Complete Stage 21 on Hard or Epic difficulty.
  • Boss Hunter - Complete Stage 22 on Hard or Epic difficulty.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4 Edit

EBF4 introduced the ability to change the difficulty mid-game via the Difficulty option in the Options menu. This makes getting some medals (specifically, the ones requiring players to defeat certain bosses on Epic difficulty) somewhat faster, allowing to breeze through other fights by temporarily lowering the difficulty.

Unfortunately, the game is exceptionally incompetent at explaining what do the difficulties do.

Declared Edit

  • Easy — Enemy stats are scaled at 50%.
  • Normal — 100%.
  • Hard — 150%. The Endless Battle on Battle Mountain is forced to this difficulty.
  • Epic — 200%.

Factual Edit

  • The game uses 3 separate sets of stat modifiers to govern the game difficulty: one for foes' Attack and Magic Attack, one for foes' HP and one for players' Limit Break charging speed.
    • From foe's level 33, the Attack/Magic Attack modifier is applied a second time, stacking on top of the original one. This cause the enemies to receive a significant damage boost on Hard and Epic difficulties, but a severe damage nerf on Easy difficulty.
  • The Endless Battle has its own set of stat modifiers, though they are closest to the Hard difficulty.
    • In "Endless difficulty", the enemies also receive a small modifier to Evade.
    • Due to improper programming of the Endless difficulty, it doesn't fully override the difficulty chosen in options. Limit Break charging speed modifier, the strength of enemies' Mana Drain ability and the status infliction chance of enemies' slimefication attacks still depend on whatever difficulty being selected in game.
  • Defence, Magic Defence, Accuracy and Evade (except in the Endless Battle) are unaffected by difficulties.

Like previous games, higher difficulties also grant special bonuses to enemies themselves or their abilities. In this game, all of these bonuses apply to both Hard and Epic difficulties. Below is a list of examples, general ideas of which also apply to EBF3 and 5.

  • Some enemies gain new skills, which can replace weaker ones, e.g., Florn trades Nettle for Vines.
  • Many enemy attacks have new statuses/debuffs or increased status/debuff chance or strength, e.g., Praetorian's dash has twice the chance to inflict Instant Death.
  • Many enemy buffing abilities apply extra buffs/statuses or have stronger buffs/statuses, e.g., Mighty Oak's self-buff applies Brave on top of stat buffs.
  • Some enemies come into the battle with a specific status effect on them already, e.g., Lightning Sprite and Thunder Elemental start with the Charge status, allowing them to use their most powerful attacks from the get-go.
    • Certain enemies with elemental absorption(s) spawn with a status effect that deals damage of that element and thus regenerates their HP, e.g., Sludge Slime gets Poison.
  • Foes that can summon allies, such as Black Wasp or Big Green Bush, often have increased spawn chance or spawn extra allies.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 Edit

This section is incomplete. You can help Epic Battle Fantasy Wiki by adding required information to it.
To do: Medals and maybe some examples of foe behavior/attack differences.

Declared Edit

  • Zero — Enemy stats are scaled at 25%.
  • Easy — 50%.
  • Normal — 100%.
  • Hard — 150%. The Endless Battle in the Temple of Trials is forced to this difficulty.
  • Epic — 200%.

Factual Edit

  • Difficulty mostly works the same as in 4, with modifiers to Attack/Magic Attack, HP, and Limit Break charging speed.
  • Difficulties below Normal now reduce all Status damage received by both players and foes (30% reduction on Easy and 65% reduction on Zero).
  • The Random status effect now has a higher chance of becoming Freeze, Instant Death or Stun on difficulties below Normal (2x chance on Easy and 3x chance on Zero).
  • On difficulties below Normal, players have a lower chance of being inflicted with the Stun, Instant Death, Freeze and Confuse status effects (enemy attacks that apply theses statuses have their infliction chance reduced to 1/2 on Easy and 1/3 on Zero).
  • Endless Battle still has the Limit Break charge speed depend on your actual difficulty, additionally, the aforementioned reduced status damage, higher chance to land certain status effects with Random, and reduced chance to be inflicted with crippling statuses also will apply if your actual difficulty is set to Easy or Zero. Finally, the enemies' behavior and attacks also depend on your actual difficulty.
