GunKat-800XL is an optional boss and summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5 introduced in the v2 update. It can be found in the Greenwood Library, being the first wave of the Sketch Boss Rush.

Appearance

GunKat-800XL is a drawing of a massive robot resembling a limbless cat. It has black eyes with small white pupils, white plating made from graphite and paper, a skull-like face, and an enormous cannon mounted in its gaping mouth. It also has a grate on its chest and a long metal wire for a tail which coils around the base of its body.

Like the other Sketch Bosses, GunKat-800XL is depicted as a static image in battle, with "animations" consisting of it briefly flashing or being moved around by an invisible force. If it leaves the screen (such as when using its Ram attack), a giant pencil will redraw it in its original position.

Overview

GunKat-800XL is the first of the Sketch Bosses, and is thus not terribly tough compared to the others. It primarily uses Bomb attacks along with some non-elemental attacks; it can also inflict a few status effects that help boost the damage of its own attacks. Like the other Sketch Bosses, GunKat-800XL will buff itself and attack with pencil stabs as its HP falls past certain thresholds. Neither of these take up its turn.

GunKat-800XL is immune to Bio and Wind while resisting Fire; on the other hand, it is weak to Thunder, Water and especially Bomb. It also resists all stat debuffs (except for Evade) and is immune to most status effects (including Invisible and Enchanted) except for Confuse, Stagger, Wet, Dry, Light, Heavy, and Dispel.

Additionally, GunKat is immune to both Invisible and Enchanted.

GunKat-800XL gains up to 24% extra Attack, Magic Attack, HP and Accuracy depending on how many optional bosses have been killed, medals awarded and monster cards obtained:


After level 26, GunKat-800XL gains a 5% boost to Attack and Magic Attack, and a 2.5% boost to HP and Accuracy on every level-up (these boosts stack additively, acting as a multiplier). This boost caps out at level 36.

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.

Start of Turn (only if Foe Remix is enabled)

  • Summon score ≥ 3;
    • Summons a Jet Fish (same level as user).

* Summon score increases by 1 if no other foes are left (checked at the start of GunKat's turn), and resets to 0 after summoning foes.

Pencil

  • ≤79% HP and hasn't used Pencil Stab yet → Pencil Stab;
  • ≤49% HP and only used Pencil Stab once → Pencil Stab;
  • ≤19% HP and only used Pencil Stab twice → Pencil Stab.

* Since each cast of Pencil Stab doesn't take up an action, more than one can happen in a single turn if enough damage is dealt at once.

Buff

  • ≤74% HP and hasn't Buffed yet → Buff 1 (1/2), Buff 2 (1/2);
  • ≤49% HP and has Buffed only once → Buff 1 (1/2), Buff 2 (1/2);
  • ≤24% HP and has Buffed only twice → Buff 1 (1/2), Buff 2 (1/2).

* Since each cast of Buff 1/Buff 2 doesn't take up an action, more than one can happen in a single turn if enough damage is dealt at once.

Action

  • If Berserked, or catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Explosive Shell;
  • Otherwise → Ram (1/4), Triple Rocket (1/4), Triple Shot (1/4), Explosive Shell (1/4).

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 20% → Explosive Shell.

Strategy

Equipment

Obviously, Bomb resistance helps with reducing the damage dealt from a majority of the boss's attacks. Stagger, Disable and Dry resistance may also be a good idea.

Battle

GunKat-800XL likes to use Bomb attacks against the party, almost all of which hit everybody. However, it also has a non-elemental Ram attack that can inflict Dry, increasing the damage dealt from its own Bomb attacks. The combination of Dry and Stagger inflicted by GunKat-800XL's Bomb attacks can lead to serious damage without proper resistance.

Offensively, the player should use Bomb attacks against GunKat-800XL and use Dry to increase the damage inflicted. The player can also inflict Wet on the boss and then target its Thunder weakness, but this will do less damage (and straight-up backfires if More Foe Resistance is enabled, which lets GunKat-800XL absorb Thunder). Unlike most bosses, GunKat-800XL is immune to all of the status effects that would normally be great in boss battles (i.e. Curse, Weaken and Tired), so an attrition strategy is ineffective.

Pay attention to GunKat-800XL's health as you wear it down; at certain HP thresholds, it will get free attacks and buffs to its Attack, Magic Attack and Accuracy; these buffs also give it Regen and Brave on Hard and Epic difficulties. Dispelling or reversing its buffs should be a priority.

Summon

GunKat-800XL can be captured to be used as a summon. When used, it first hits all the foes with its Triple Rocket attack and then follows up with its Explosive Shell.

Trivia

  • A concept art of GunKat-800XL can be seen in the Grand Gallery's 60 Medals room.
  • The GunKat bears some resemblance to the Armored Oak boss in EBF4.
