The Dish Turret, also known as Satelite Dish (sic), is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 and 4. It is deployed by the Valkyrie Tank in EBF2 and found in the Waste Disposal Plant in EBF4.

Appearance

The Dish Turret is a tall, somewhat jagged piece of metal with at least eight satellite dishes and three antennae mounted on it. The dishes can rotate forwards for one of its attacks. It is almost entirely metallic gray, except for some tiny yellow lights near the very top.

Like all Turrets, the Dish Turret emerges from a metallic panel on the ground or a hatch on the back of the Valkyrie Tank.

Overview

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Satelite Dish is the Valkyrie Tank's dedicated support/disruptor unit, being able to inflict Seal and debuff Attack, Magic Attack, Defence or Magic Defence. It can also use a moderately powerful Thunder attack that hits multiple times, which it spams if afflicted with Seal. On Hard or Epic difficulty, its Debuffing Waves gain a second "hit" that can debuff Attack or Magic Attack, its Thunder attack has a substantial chance to automatically repeat itself for doubled damage, and it automatically buffs the Valkyrie's Magic Defence if it is destroyed.

The Satelite Dish is weak to Bomb and especially Thunder, but resists Fire, Poison, and Earth (to a lesser degree), as well as all status effects and debuffs (being completely immune to Poison and Blind).

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Dish Turret uses pure Thunder-elemental magic attacks, but it doesn't have particularly impressive damage output. However, its ability to inflict Syphon, Dispel and Stun with high success rates makes it a very annoying support unit.

Fortunately, the Dish Turret can't take a taste of its own medicine; while it resists Stun and Syphon, either effect will leave it completely helpless for their duration. Wet does it no favors; it's usually inflicted by one of its elemental weaknesses and it amplifies the damage of an even worse one; conversely, the Dish Turret can exploit Wet just as easily if applied to the players (often by a Fridge Turret). It's also saddled with terribly low Evade, which makes dodging the party's attacks nigh-impossible.

The Dish Turret is immune to Wind, Bio, Poison, Burn, and Stagger while resisting Fire, Freeze, Stun, Doom, and Instant Death. On the other hand, it's weak to Water, Earth, and especially Bomb and Thunder. Activating "More Foe Resistance" reduces its Bomb and Thunder weaknesses and makes it immune to Accuracy debuffs.
