"I don't feel safe with these sharp objects in my hair. (I'll end up tripping and decapitating myself or something...)"
―Natalie, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Drill Bits are a female headgear introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 3. Their armor counterpart is the Breastplate in EBF3 and EBF4, while the Obsidian Armor in EBF5 can be considered at some extent to be their armor counterpart. Their male hat and armor counterparts are the Knight's Helmet and the Heroic Armor.

Description

The Drill Bits appear as a pair of small grey drills that are worn on either side of the wearer's head (similar to the Cat Ears, but without the headband). In EBF5, they have much narrower threads and small clips at the bottom to help secure them. If worn with the Obsidian Armor, the drills' color changes to black.

The Drill Bits style their wearer's hair into tight, drill-like ringlets; in EBF3 and 4, they also seem to drastically increase the length and volume of the wearer's hair, to the point where Natalie's ringlets are almost as long as she is tall. In EBF5, their ringlets are identical to those of the Pope Hat, the Spider Bobble, and the Holly Hairpin, among others.

The Drill Bits emphasize physical bulk by giving their wearer a great Defence boost; they usually also provide a huge amount of Attack for a hat. Unfortunately, their Magic Defence is average at best, and they're usually weak to Thunder and Stun.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Drill Bits are a primarily defensive hat, with a high boost to Defence, a decent boost to Magic Defence, and a minor boost to HP. They strengthen Rockslide (which is cast with the Earthball item), giving Natalie some decent Earth coverage if needed.

The Drill Bits are slightly weak to Thunder. The degree of their weakness doesn't change as they're upgraded.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

While they lack special effects, the Drill Bits give some fairly significant stat boosts: large amounts of Attack and Defence and a fair bit of Magic Defence. Anna can make better use of the Attack bonus, but Natalie appreciates the boost to her weaker Defence; either way, a more versatile headgear may be preferred unless the player is expecting to weather primarily physical attacks.

The Drill Bits have weaknesses to Thunder and Stun, which remain constant at any upgrade level.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Drill Bits are a physically-oriented headgear with substantial Attack and Defence...and literally nothing else. While effective for a full-out physically offensive gear (or defensive in situations where a foe almost exclusively uses physical attacks, such as Ultra Chibi Knight), a more versatile piece of equipment may work better in most situations.

The Drill Bits are weak to Thunder and Stun, but resistant to Earth. The weaknesses remain constant, but the resistance maxes out at 50% at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Drill Bits grant a good amount of Defence and Magic Defence in addition to a nice Attack boost. They also have a chance to summon Jack to drastically boost the party's offenses between turns, but this is incredibly unreliable; as such, they should mainly be used for their stats and resistances, particularly in an offensive Anna build.

From a defensive standpoint, the Alt Drill Bits are slightly outclassed by the Alt Fur Hat and the Alt Pope Hat, which have identical defenses and additional bonuses; offensively, there are several hats with more Attack power. However, the Alt Drill Bits arguably have the best combination of bulk and physical power among all female hats; their closest competition, the Alt Blue Elephant, is much less versatile due to its auto-Berserk status.

The Alt Drill Bits resist Bomb, Wind, Tired, and Weaken, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Drill Bits are found in the Kitten Kingdom Ruins, as part of the reward for completing Simon's quest.
