The Hobo Clothes are a male armor available in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It has no hat counterpart, although its resemblance to the Captain's Coat from past games means that the Captain's Hat could be considered its counterpart.

Description

The Hobo Clothes are composed of a pair of torn and patched brown trousers and a black jacket with red patches on the elbows. It resembles the pre-EBF5 version of the Captain's Coat.

Normal

The Hobo Clothes are a well-rounded piece of armor, providing a solid bonus to Defence and Magic Defence, as well as modest boosts for Attack, Magic Attack and Evade. They also strengthen debuffs cast by the wearer, though the Coat of Teeth works better with Lance's skillset. While the Hobo Clothes boost Earth attacks, the Genji Armor is typically a more powerful choice for this effect.

The Hobo Clothes are noteworthy for granting the wearer the ability to steal items with single-target melee attacks. While not useful for combat purposes, this can be used when farming.

The Hobo Clothes resist Bio, Stun, Death and Doom. All of these but Bio become immunities at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Hobo Clothes provide a solid bonus to Defence and Magic Defence, and slightly raise Evade. They improve the chances of capturing foes, and they have a decent chance to summon a Putrid Worm between turns. While not overly useful in the context of most battles, the combination of a capture boost with an auto-skill that severely debuffs the Evade of a target lets the player save time when preparing to capture a foe. They also grant the wearer the ability to steal items with single-target melee attacks. While not useful for combat purposes, this can be used when farming.

Ultimately, while not particularly useful for combat most of the time, the Alt Hobo Clothes have a nice assortment of utility functions for stealing and capturing.

The Alt Hobo Clothes resist Earth, Stun, Death and Doom; all of these but Earth become immunities at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Hobo Clothes are the default armor of Matt, and as such he wears it at the beginning of the game in his House.
