Dogs are a group of foes introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Appearance

Unsurprisingly, Dogs are quadrupedal canines with small black eyes, short snouts, and no visible mouths. Their color and fur pattern differ among species. Tanuki Dogs and Rescue Dogs have a jug of liquid tied around their necks.

Dogs are often found in forests, ruins or caves.

Overview

Dogs are low to mid-tier foes who can attack players with backflips and claw slashes (in EBF5 only). Besides this, all Dogs have relatively unique fighting styles.

Tanuki and Wolf Dogs will tend to nosedive into players, dealing strong damage and potentially inflicting a status effect. Friend Dogs are completely passive foes who only use buffs and debuffs. They will only attack if under the effects of Syphon or Berserk. Tanuki and Friend Dogs can take a sip from their jugs, healing their HP. The Mage Dog is a magically inclined foe unlike the other Dogs; it uses a variety of Holy and Dark spells, and it can also heal other enemies.

In EBF5, with the exception of the Mage Dog, Dogs will focus their attacks on whoever hit them last. However, they will tend to avoid attacking players suffering from certain status effects, such as a Tanuki Dog avoiding players already affected with Burn.

All Dogs share a weakness to Bio. Their other resistances vary greatly. They do not tend to resist any status effects or stat debuffs, except in EBF5 where all Dogs are resistant to Freeze.

Trivia

  • The EBF4 Bestiary lists the Friend Dog after the Wolf Dog; however, the former are encountered earlier in-game.
  • The Mage Dogs were first seen in Epic Battle Fantasy 3's Concept Art Gallery. They were designed as a counterpart to the Mage Birds, but were cut when Matt Roszak decided that he already had enough enemies.
