The Human Skull is a non-elemental cat toy available for NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Human Skull set is composed of the haunted bones of a human child. The weapon is a broken femur bone, with two splinters forming a crude crossguard; the offhand item is the eponymous human skull, with two feeble red lights burning in its empty eye cavities. The eye lights are white in the weapon's menu icon.

Normal

The Human Skull is a support weapon focused around its ability to spread Bad Luck and Defence debuffs. It provides a mediocre boost to both Attack and Magic Attack, but compensates with great defensive stats; its Defence and Magic Defence equal the Icecream Sandwich, and its Evade is tied with the Pixel Popper for the second best of all cat toys.

The Human Skull improves the strength of debuffs, which affects the Defence debuff inflicted by its weapon-elemental skills, but this bonus is otherwise minor; NoLegs is arguably the worst debuffer of the party, due to being unable to learn any of the major debuff skills. On the other hand, NoLegs can make good use of the weapon's increased chance to inflict status effects; aside from his natural elemental slashes, it inflicts Bad Luck with weapon-elemental skills and often summons The Reaper between turns. In fact, The Reaper is guaranteed to kill non-resistant foes if it connects, and the Human Skull's on-hit Bad Luck will further increase its effectiveness.

Overall, the Human Skull is most notable for its good chance of inflicting a solid Defence debuff and reliably applying Bad Luck (or a status of the player's choice with the appropriate Flairs) at the same time. As such, NoLegs can use Swift Slash to easily spread these statuses; however, the player may prefer a more versatile weapon for this role. Its massive Bio resistance can also be useful if the player is expecting to contend with Virus (either from enemies or as part of a Virus-infliction strategy).

The Human Skull resists Bio, Curse, Bad Luck, and Dark. All but the last become a full immunity at Level 5.

The Alt Human Skull has dreadful offenses, having the lowest Attack boost and second-lowest Magic Attack boost of any cat toy that raises those stats. It empowers debuffs, but NoLegs is poorly suited to exploit this. It also boasts a variety of summons - Zombie Hydra, Skeleton Cat, and Skeleton Hand - which can allow for some Instant Death and luck shenanigans, but they're inconsistent enough to be outclassed by a Fat Fly status build with Firecrackers support.

However, the Alt Human Skull has one valuable asset; with three pieces of debuff-boosting gear (including itself), its weapon-elemental skills can reduce the victims' Magic Defence by 80%. This effectively turns Swift Slash into a damaging Enfeeble with a 1-turn cooldown, providing excellent support for a magically offensive Lance or Natalie build. In this respect, the Alt Human Skull should be treated like the Alt Club of Withering or the normal version of the Kaladanda; instead of direct damage, it should be used to open gaping holes in the foes' defenses for other party members to exploit. Giving NoLegs the appropriate status Flairs can further boost elemental magic damage.

The Alt Human Skull resists Bio, Earth, and Dark, becoming immune to none of them at Level 5.

The Human Skull is found inside a chest in the Mystic Woods, on the same screen you obtain the Stepladder. The chest is hidden behind the leaves in the upper-right corner of the screen.
