  • The Hyper Drill in EBF5
  • The Drill Lance in EBF4

The Hyper Drill, also known as Drill Lance in EBF4, is an Earth-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. In EBF4, it is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the Premium Pack.

Description

The Drill Lance has a black shaft with a small adornment near the base. It has a large black cylinder for a head, with three grey spikes on both sides, and a long silver drill on the tip.

Though it has no other stat bonuses, the Drill Lance has the third highest Attack boost of all EBF4 swords, tying with Sapphire Giant and beaten only by Equilibrium and Anarchy, and can inflict Stagger with weapon-elemental attacks, thus setting the target up for even more damage (sometimes from the Drill Lance itself). It makes ample use of its elemental boost: besides boosting Matt's Earth skill line, the two extra skills the sword uses — Quake and Rock Fall — are both Earth-elemental and specialize in damage. It also raises Matt's Earth resistance, but weakens his Thunder resistance.

In EBF5, the sword retains most of its original traits, though it loses a small amount of Attack in exchange for a small Defence boost. Its Stagger on attack effect got replaced by the ability to debuff Defence on attack instead (though its new unleash inflicts Stagger). At max level, it'll also ignore the defensive buffs on enemies when using Weapon-elemental skills.

Trivia

  • It is one of many references to the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann anime found throughout the EBF franchise ("Yours is the Drill that will Pierce the Heavens!!!"), being based on the drill-tipped staff Simon carries in the epilogue.
