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. When it returned for EBF5 as the Hyper Drill, its head was slightly slimmer and the thread on the drill was made much narrower, giving the entire weapon a sleeker appearance.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

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. It 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 natural Earth skills, its two bonus skills — a Quake counter and a Rock Fall unleash — are both Earth-elemental and purely damage-focused.

The Drill Lance raises Matt's Earth resistance (to a maximum of 50% at Level 5), but makes him more vulnerable to Thunder (which remains at -30% no matter what its level is).

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Hyper Drill has impressive Attack, a small Defence boost, and the ability to power up Matt's Earth skills. Its Weapon-elemental skills can inflict Heavy and debuff Defence while having a chance to unleash Stalactites for decent Earth-based damage and a chance to Stagger foes; at maximum level, these skills also let Matt ignore the defensive buffs of his targets.

The Hyper Drill resists Earth and is weak to Thunder. The resistance doesn't become an immunity at Level 5, but the weakness remains constant no matter how much the sword is forged.

Equip Remix

Overwhelm your enemies with the raw fighting spirit of the Alt Hyper Drill, a fearsome "sword" with great Attack, decent HP, and good defenses for the price of minor losses to Accuracy and Evade. It enhances Matt's debuffing skills and Earth attacks, occasionally casts Rockslide between turns, and debuffs enemy Attack with Weapon-elemental skills in addition to unleashing Giga Drill with some regularity.

The Alt Hyper Drill resists Earth and Bomb, with neither becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Found at the summit of Battle Mountain, specifically in one of two chests at the bottom-left corner of the shops screen, accessible after defeating all four Dark Players. Winged Boots are required to get this far.

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.
