Fire Spin is a Fire-elemental special skill available for all characters in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and for Natalie, Anna and NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack in EBF4 and is part of both the Steam and the Web version of the game in EBF5.

Description

When cast, a small spiral of flames appears over the enemy wave, hitting them all for magical Fire damage and frequently inflicting Burn on all enemies. It can also debuff their Defence.

In EBF4, Fire Spin is more useful for its Defense debuff than its damage (both direct and via its Burn effect). It is generally best given to a player in a supporting role, as it can be used to weaken the foe's Defense before a heavy physical attack is used.

In EBF5, Fire Spin is functionally similar to its EBF4 version, with more emphasis on inflicting debuffs and status effects than damage. While its v2 version has slightly more power than most of Natalie's multi-target attacks, the 1-turn cooldown reduces its offensive potential; on the other hand, the reworked buff/debuff mechanics make it useful for countering enemy Defense buffs, especially given Debilitate's much longer cooldown. It's also somewhat notable as the only source of Fire damage for Anna and NoLegs, but it runs off of their weaker offensive stat and their Fire-boosting weapons (the Crimson Dragon and the Dog Sausage, respectively) aren't especially effective for attacker builds (except perhaps in Equip Remix).

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Fire Spin is obtained by completing Shione's quest in the steroid shop in Redpine Town. Compared to its EBF4 version, it has higher damage and more powerful effects that can be further boosted by the right equipment, but it also has a one-turn cooldown.

Trivia

  • Fire Spin seems to be a nod towards the Pokémon move of the same name. Both are Fire-based special/magic attacks that deal fairly little damage on hit, instead inflicting a status effect that deals residual damage over several turns. Both also have an additional effect that makes the target(s) more vulnerable; the Pokémon move prevents the victim from switching out, and the EBF skill can debuff the targets' Defence.
