The Earth Dragon (Brown Dragon in EBF4) is a foe and a summon introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It is frequently found in far-off areas often associated with ruins, such as the Forgotten Ruins or the Temple of Godcat.

Appearance

The Brown Dragon is a massive reptilian beast whose head and neck are all that can be seen on screen. It has a shorter snout than most Dragons, with large tan horns protruding from its head and chin. Three dark brown scars can be seen below its green eyes, presumably a memento of a previous battle. Its light brown mouth is filled with small, blunt teeth, and it has a pair of strange holes in the side of its head (possibly ears) surrounded by long brown spines with light brown membranes between them. Its neck is light brown on the bottom and darker brown on the top, with several short spines protruding between the scales of the latter.

In EBF5, the Earth Dragon has a smoother appearance than its EBF4 equivalent, with the scars under its eyes being replaced by light brown scars around its mouth and on the back of its head. Its "ears" were made larger (particularly the lower hole), its horns became slightly more jagged, and the spikes on its neck are smaller than before.

Overview

If its name and color scheme didn't tip you off, the Brown/Earth Dragon is a powerful foe that uses a lot of Earth and Bio attacks. It has numerous resistances (most notably Earth absorption and Thunder immunity), but it's weak to Water and Ice and has no resistance to Wet, allowing players to set up a highly damaging combo.

In EBF4, the Brown Dragon uses strong single-target physical attacks for the bulk of its damage output. In contrast, its magical attacks are weak, but they hit the entire party at once and can inflict Poison or debuff the party's Accuracy and Magic Defence. It can also roar to give itself and its allies Morale and a significant Defence buff. While it lacks a "Megaflare" attack like most Dragons, it instead takes a page from the Zombie Hydra's book and smashes an unlucky player with its tail, dealing severe damage and possibly inflicting Stagger.

In EBF5, the Earth Dragon can threaten the party from both sides of the offensive spectrum; although it still favors physical attacks, its magic attacks can deal decent damage in addition to their annoying status effects and debuffs - on higher difficulties, it can even lower Magic Defence and inflict Scorch! It has Earth, Bio, and Fire skills, as well as the ability to Dry players to increase the latter's damage. Its roar can debuff the party's Attack while simultaneously buffing the foes' Defence, making things much harder for physical attackers.

Summon

The Earth Dragon can be captured to be used as a summon. It's essentially a powered-up version of Acid Blast that debuffs Magic Defence before dealing damage, allowing the Earth Dragon to strengthen its own attack in addition to the party's magical follow-ups.

Trivia

  • Outside of the Premium-exclusive Battle Mountain, the Brown Dragon appears in exactly one battle in EBF4 — right behind the Blood Orb-powered gates on the way to the upper part of the Temple of Godcat. This makes it the rarest non-boss foe in EBF4.
  • The Brown Dragon's leftmost tooth isn't fully colored, leaving a part of it transparent. This is purely aesthetic and was fixed for the Earth Dragon in EBF5.
