The Frose is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. It is mainly found in Lankyroot Jungle, either the real place in EBF4 or in the Data Bunker's simulation in EBF5.

Appearance

The Frose is a large blue flower with a small jewel like bubble in the center. Its petals appear to be fusing together into a single, frill-like structure with a light blue rim resembling waves of water. It has a stocky green stem like the other Flowers, with a single leaf sticking out; some of its animations reveal that the stem is actually a long vine mostly hidden underground.

Overview

The Frose uses Water and Ice-based spells, with much of its skillset focused on inflicting Wet and debuffing the party's Evade. It often uses Cloudburst to Wet everyone on the battlefield, thereby leaving the party vulnerable to the Frose's Ice spells. However, players armed with heavy Ice and Water resistance can turn the Frose's Cloudburst to their advantage by using Ice spells of their own on the Flower's allies and Thunder spells on the Frose itself.

A Frose will always attempt to use Cloudburst on its first turn. This can be blocked by forcing Frose to execute a different ability (via Syphon or Berserk).

The Frose is weak to Thunder, Wind and Poison, but absorbs Ice and Water.

Battle Logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Berserked or/and Syphoned → Bulb Splash;
  • First turn → Cloudburst;
  • Otherwise → Iceshard (2/5), Bulb Splash (1/5), Bubbles (1/5), Cloudburst (1/5).


Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Action

  • If Syphoned or Berserked → Bulb Splash;
  • First turn without Berserk/Syphon → Cloudburst;
  • Otherwise → Iceshard (2/5), Bulb Splash (1/5), Bubbles (1/5), Cloudburst (1/5).

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 25% and not Syphoned → Bulb Splash.


Additionally, like all the Classic foes, the Frose ignores the Lovable status on players.

Trivia

  • Like all Flowers, the Frose's name is a portmanteau of plant terminology and a word related to its abilities; in this case, its name combines "rose" with either "freeze" or "frost". Its name also sounds similar to "froze," further hinting to its Wet-Ice strategy.
    • Despite its name, the Frose bears little to no resemblance to a real-world rose.
