"This hat isn't my style at all. I'm a gentleman - not a savage!"
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Viking Fur and Helmet

Matt & Lance with the Viking Helmet in EBF4.

The Horned Helmet, also known as Viking Helmet prior to EBF5, is a male hat available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Its armor counterpart is the Viking Fur, and its female counterparts are the Ice Shards, Fur Hat and Fur Dress.

Description

The Viking Helmet is a conical helmet made of wood with metal reinforcements and a pair of curved horns. In EBF3, one of its horns is broken, and in EBF5, the horns point downward. In EBF5, the metal reinforcements changes color to match the Spartan Cuirass and the Shell Armor if worn with them.

This offense-oriented helmet increases the wearer's Attack and randomly makes him go Berserk, which boosts his attack even further, but limits his moves to only using random weapon-elemental skills on random foes.

This piece of equipment varies in value greatly depending on the game it is in for various reasons, and so specific descriptions will be in each game's subsection.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The EBF3 version of the Viking Helmet is considered one of the best hats in the game for Matt, as it provides a massive power boost which, when combined with the Soul Eater and the Genji Armor, gives one of the most powerful combinations in the game, dubbed "Soul Zerker". Soul Zerker is one of the more common strategies used to defeat Akron on Epic mode, popularized on the EBF3 comments section on Kongregate. This is described in more detail on the Akron Strategy page.

Even outside of the final boss, the Viking Helmet gives Matt ridiculous power and can be used to readily wipe the floor clean with any and all foes who do not absorb the element of whatever sword Matt is using. Since the Soul Eater is only 25% Dark instead of 50, no foes absorb or are immune to its damage. Furthermore, it provides massive bonuses to all stats outside of MP and Magic Attack, neither of which are used by a Berserked player.

Do note that as the characters cannot have their order switched around, if Matt has the Viking Helm on he cannot do anything else for the duration of the battle except for be Berserked unless Matt gets killed.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The EBF4 version of the Viking Helmet has been nerfed somewhat in the transition. It now only provides bonuses to Attack and both defenses, and will only Berserk the player 30% of the time. While this does mean that the wearer will be easier to control and still be able to use buffs (particularly useful if given to Matt), it no longer packs the same punch as it did before. The player may prefer to stick to a hat that provides other bonuses for a more controlled and tactical strategy as opposed to raw power. For Attack in particular, the Death Mask is a viable choice.

It is worth noting that the helmet now provides resistance to Ice and Wind.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

In EBF5 the hat is pretty much identical to its EBF4 version, the only difference being that now it gives Berserk to the user more often (having a guaranteed chance to inflict the status on the wielder every turn starting from level 2).

Adventure Story

The Viking Helmet also appears in Adventure Story as one of the hats available to the player. It greatly increases Matt's Attack and HP, but renders him incapable of using any magic.
