The Igloo Fort, also known as Shark Igloo, is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 3; since the Battle Mountain update, it is also a miniboss in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears mostly in cold areas, such as Glacier Valley and Whitefall Town.

Appearance

The Igloo Fort is a mobile fortress made of white snow and mounted on a wooden base with four wagon-like wheels, with the base made from snow. It has two engines on the back, a Cat Soldier on the top, and an opening on the front that reveals a cannon and a large black-and-brown shark. The shark's tail sticks out of the back of the fort.

In EBF3, the fort is called the Shark Igloo and is made out of visibly cubical snow blocks. It also has a shield mounted on the side; a round wooden buckler reinforced with metal. According to its Bestiary entry, it acts as a mobile food storage unit for the Kitten Army; it is unclear if this is also true of its EBF4 incarnation.

Overview

The Igloo Fort's abilities vary between appearances, but it mainly uses non-elemental physical attacks and magical Bomb attacks. It's quite durable, but it also suffers from below-average Evade and several elemental weaknesses, always including Bio, Earth, and Fire.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Shark Igloo is a bulky foe with mixed offensive options. Its shark can be used for non-elemental physical attacks, such as ramming a player or biting them three times in rapid succession. It also has magical Bomb attacks from its cannon (single-target) and explosive barrels hurled from its top (multi-target and more accurate than its other moves).

All of the Shark Igloo's single-target attacks have above-average critical chance, but slightly below-average Accuracy. Reflex can be useful to reduce its damage output, and Bomb resistance dampens its magic attacks. Applying Syphon or Berserk will lock it into its Chained Shark attack, which is only problematic if it scores a critical hit; keep the party's Defence and HP high to mitigate this.

The Shark Igloo is weak to BombBio, Earth, and especially Fire, but resists Wind, nullifies Water, and absorbs Ice. It has no status or debuff resistances.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Igloo Fort primarily uses magical Bomb which can inflict status effects; its cannon applies a mild Burn and its explosive barrel has a chance to Stagger the party. It can also use its shark to repeatedly bite a single player for non-elemental physical damage, or have its kitten pilot blow a horn to summon reinforcements (either a Snow Slime or a Cat Soldier) before giving the entire enemy wave Bless and a decent buff to Magic Attack and Magic Defence; since Bless blocks Dispel along with other negative status effects, the party will need debuffing moves to counteract the stat buffs. Alternatively, Giga Drill can be used to exploit the Magic Defence buff, particularly against the Igloo Fort itself.

Inflicting Syphon or Berserk on the Igloo Fort can be a double-edged sword; on one hand, this allows it to spam its strongest attack, which can't be dampened by resistance and which gets a further boost from Berserk. On the other hand, losing its ability to call backup and buff itself is helpful, especially when trying to exploit its rather lacking status resistances to help work through its impressive HP.

The Igloo Fort has no elemental resistances while being severely weak to Bio, Earth, and Fire; it's also extremely vulnerable to Poison and Burn. On the other hand, it is resistant to Syphon and immune to both Stun and Freeze. Activating "More Foe Resistance" removes its Bio weakness (although it still remains horribly easy to Poison) and lets it absorb Ice while making it fairly resistant to Doom, Instant Death, and all stat debuffs.
