"Stop pretending to be a foe, tree, you're just a tree."
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Haunted Tree is a type of foe in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It appears in forest areas like Vegetable Forest or graveyards like Graybone Cemetery. In Epic Battle Fantasy 5, it appears in the Data Bunker.

Appearance

The Haunted Tree is a gnarled old brown tree with a large maw and a pair of slits that make up its eyes. On its branches are, depending on the game, orange/green leaves (and also mushrooms, prior to EBF4).

Overview

EBF

Haunted Trees specialize in Poison and Dark attacks. However, while they can inflict several status effects, they don't have particularly high power. As such, while aggravating in a battle that is very drawn out, Haunted Trees are generally mild threats that can be dealt with at the player's leisure.

Haunted Trees are consistently weak to Fire, Earth and Thunder, though they also absorb Dark. The player should generally hit them with multi target attacks like Flame Burst, though Fume and Thunderbolt work well too.

Adventure Story

Haunted Trees also appear as enemies in Adventure Story, featured in the game's first two worlds. They are stationary and attack by spitting clouds of little poison bubbles - an attack they also use in the EBF series - at Matt when they notice him.

In EBF, foe stats are specifically set per wave, thus two foes of the same type may have different stats (resistances will still be the same). See EBF Foe Waves for a list of all foe waves.
