  • The Inferno in EBF5
  • The Inferno in EBF1 and EBF2
"This is the perfect weapon: it kills and cooks foes at the same time! They'll be nice and crispy right away!"
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Inferno is one of Matt's recurring swords in the Epic Battle Fantasy series.

Description

In the first two games, the Inferno is a large sword with an elaborate blade made of red energy with a light red edge and small markings along the middle. The blade is separated into three pieces near the base by three small dark red orbs, matching the color of the larger orb in the cross-guard. It also has a crimson grip.

In EBF5, the coloring of the entire weapon was altered. The four orbs and energy blade were changed to orange, and the handle became black with an orange stripe near the guard and a red pommel at the end of it. The markings on the blade are also noticeably larger, as are the curved spikes on its sides near the base.

Epic Battle Fantasy

The Inferno gives Matt a small boost to Attack and Magic Defence, along with a fair increase to his Magic Attack. It increases the power of his Eruption skill.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Inferno amplifies Matt's Magic Attack by a decent amount while also providing boosts to his Attack, Magic Defence, and Evade. It powers up Eruption and lets his Unleash reduce the Magic Defence of foes, which can help Natalie inflict more damage with her spells.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Inferno is a relatively average weapon with solid offenses and nice increases to Evade and Accuracy. Its Weapon-elemental attacks can Burn targets and unleash Fiery Fume (which may also Burn foes).

Ultimately, the Inferno is a somewhat underwhelming weapon - while it improves Matt's Fire attacks and can Burn foes, most other swords provide better offensive stats and/or special effects.

The Inferno resists Freeze, Chill, Bomb and Ice. The Chill and Freeze resistances become an immunity at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Inferno discards the shackles of hybrid offenses and combines high Attack with a good bonus skill to be a lean, mean, physically offensive machine.

The Alt Inferno has high Attack, and somewhat raises Evade and Accuracy. It also has a powerful unleash in Volcano, with power nearly as strong as most skills. While casting Eruption is, of course, more effective than casting a bonus skill, the Inferno will Dry its target before casting Volcano, allowing for a remarkable damage output. However, Volcano has a low chance to be triggered in the first place, requiring a Normal Attack and/or the Meow Meow Badge to be used for best results; if the skill doesn't trigger, Matt's allies can exploit the Dry status with their own Fire and Bomb attacks.

Overall, the Alt Inferno is a useful choice for Fire damage, with the stats and abilities Matt needs to leave a big, crispy mark on his foes. While it inflicts Burn on Matt between turns, this is an insignificant effect that has no real impact in battle and can be easily compensated for with the right equipment.

The Alt Inferno resists Freeze, Chill, Bomb and Thunder. The first two become an immunity at Level 5.

Trivia

  • The Inferno has some aesthetic similarities to the Thor's Hammer and the Gigavolt, being weapons made primarily of pure energy surrounding a series of small orbs.
