Dark Flare hitting Armored Oak, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Gravity Surge (known as Dark Flare before Epic Battle Fantasy 5) is a Dark-elemental skill in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. In Epic Battle Fantasy 2 and 3, it is only usable by foes; in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, it can also be learned by Matt, Natalie, or Lance. In Epic Battle Fantasy 5 it is completely reworked into being one of Lance's skills. It has undergone notable changes with each appearance.

Description

In EBF5, Lance fires a cluster of dark, orb-shaped energy, dealing Dark-elemental magical damage that lowers the magic defense of foes. Prior to that, a series of dark black orbs surrounded with red outlines and pulse manifest over the target that have several side effects varying from game to game.
