- "Elementals are pretty tough..."
- ―Anna, Epic Battle Fantasy 4
Elementals appear as semi-humanoid torsos with bestial facial features reminiscent of a reptile (barring the Wind Elemental). Instead of legs, they have what could be a short tail or the atrophied remains of a pelvis; as such, they levitate just above the ground instead of walking. They have a pronounced hunch that puts their head roughly level with their shoulders, which are adorned with large, elaborate pauldrons or spikes. Their arms end in weapons instead of hands (barring the Ice Elemental), with most having a cannon on their right arm and a blade on their left.
Elementals are usually found in environments that match their element.
Elementals are mid-tier foes with powerful physical and magical attacks. They usually use the element that their name and appearance suggests, although a few can use secondary elements. Most can inflict a few status effects that can further complicate the matter of fighting them.
Elementals have fairly diverse weaknesses and resistances, but they always absorb the primary element they use in battle. On the other hand, most are weak to Ice.

- The EBF3 intro claims that Elementals adopt their unique appearances and powers by adapting to their current environment. It is unclear if this is meant to mean that Elementals begin as the same creature before diverging into their current forms, or if an Elemental moved between environments would eventually change its element to match its new surroundings.
- Interestingly, neither of the new Elementals introduced in EBF4 have horns on their heads.
