Encore is a status-inflicting skill available for all players in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.


When cast, a spotlight is shown over the target, and a small bit of confetti rains down. This gives Haste to the target, thus granting them another turn.

Encore is an incredibly useful skill; it can be used to set up elemental combos on a single player, get two attacks in from one heavily buffed player, combo Limit Breaks (say, having Natalie use Tsunami and immediately follow it up with Absolute Zero) and set up Defend based tactics instantly and still be able to attack in that one turn.

It is important to take into account that Encore technically does not increase the party's turn count. Instead, it effectively rearranges the turns such that a single player gets two turns at the cost of the user's turn.

  • For a party of Matt, Natalie and Lance, in which Lance has Encore, using Encore on Natalie will make the turn go from (Matt, Natalie, Lance) to (Matt, Natalie, Natalie). Lance's turn is gone, but Natalie can use two skills in a row.
  • Of course, since Encore takes a turn to give a player a turn, using it on oneself is pointless and just wastes the cooldown.
