Genji Armor and Helmet

Matt & Lance with the Genji Helmet in EBF4.

The Genji Helmet is a male hat available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Its armor counterpart is the Genji Armor.

Description

The Genji Helmet is a red (brown in EBF5) samurai helmet with golden trims.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Genji Helmet provides a strong boost to Defence along with a nice increase in Attack and Magic Defence, though this comes at the cost of a slight Accuracy debuff. The Genji Helmet is second only to the Berserking Viking Helmet in the realm of Attack, making it the best tool for maximizing physical offense. Granted, this is only a 10% boost, so more defensive options may come in handy. For instance, the Soldier Helmet may be better to capitalize on the free Medipacks.

The Genji Helmet resists Earth, which will not become an immunity at level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Genji Helmet comes with great Attack, good Defence and a pinch of Evade. While it has good stats, it is noticeably outclassed by other hats in the field of physical offense. The Headband can be acquired in Ashwood Forest and has better power, the Demon Skull has overwhelming better stats in exchange for poor resistances and Curse, and finally the Death Mask has even more physical power if the player gives up some Accuracy. Even worse, all of these can be acquired around or before the time the Genji Helmet is acquired. Overall, the Genji Helmet is a decent hat that comes far too late to be of significant use.

The Genji Helmet resists Earth and Wind. These do not become immunities at level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Genji Helmet has identical stats to its previous iteration, with great Attack, good Defence and a pinch of Evade. However, using Defend with a level 5 Genji Helmet equipped will give the wearer Good Luck. If you are looking for the Attack-boosting Defend, see Genji Armor.

While the Genji Helmet is very useful, there are still stronger alternatives for maxing out Attack. That said, it is the strongest penalty-less physically offensive hat, though for sheer power both Death Mask and Necromancer's Helmet should be considered if the player plans accordingly.

The Genji Helmet provides resistance against Earth and Wind. These do not become immunities at level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Genji Helmet shifts to a more defensive stance, boasting good defenses in both stats and free Morale, making it a great tool for tank builds.

The Alt Genji Helmet has good Magic Defence, Defence and also somewhat raises Evade. However, what makes it notable is that it applies Morale on using Defend; because of this, it can be used to apply Morale without using a Flair slot. This can then be used as on-Defend Morale normally would, with Regen and Pixel Glasses and such giving limited immortality. As such, it is very useful for tanking builds, particularly given how useful certain unique Flair effects are.

The Alt Genji Helmet provides resistance against Earth and Wind. These do not become immunities at level 5.

The Genji Helmet can be bought in the Goldenbrick Resort Equipment Shop for 50,000 gold. It no longer reduces wearer's Accuracy, and its Attack bonus is increased as well. Its Magic Defence boost is replaced with Evade bonus instead. The helmet now also resists Wind element, instead of only Earth.

Trivia

  • If NoLegs wears this helmet, it sits lopsided on his head as if it is too big for him. This also applies to his overworld sprite.
