Eyeballs are one of The Devourer's backup appendages in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.


The Eyeball resembles the earlier version of the Eyeball, however it appears to be part of The Devourer himself as opposed to a free-floating entity. It has a single trademark Devourer eye, complete with a cross shaped pupil, a series of white spikes sticking out of it and a pink material underneath the eye itself. At its "base" is a hard brown material of some sort, which is connected to the rest of the body via purple tentacles.


The Eyeball is the "buffer" for The Devourer, boasting a strong buffing skill and a couple offensive attacks that can inflict statuses, along with a weak heal that cures certain status effects. To top it off, it can also invert buffs like the Red Flybot. This combination of abilities means that it can throw a wrench in the player's damage output, and also make it much harder to survive the Devourer's attacks. They have the lowest HP out of the Devourer's appendages, making them relatively easy to kill if focused on. Furthermore, statuses like Stun, Freeze, Syphon or even Berserk can also prevent them from using their most dangerous moves.

The Devourer enters the battle with two Eyeballs on the 2nd and 4th slot. Like Slimy Tentacles and Spikey Tentacles, these can be defeated and then regenerated as the battle progresses.
