The Jet Fish (also known as Steel Fish) is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. It's frequently found in industrial places such as the Waste Disposal Plant and the Iron Fortress. It is a member of the Fish enemy group.

Appearance

Like its other robotic counterparts, the Jet Fish resembles a fish, possibly a bass, with rocket boosters. The entirety of the Jet Fish is a chrome and steel gray, with blue flames (purple in EBF5) coming out of the engines. In EBF4 the Jet Fish had a metal grate covering its frontal vent, but the grate is absent in its EBF5 incarnation.

Overview

In EBF4 the Steel Fish is capable of using Thunder, Wind and Bomb attacks. Its attacks are generally not overly powerful, but it is capable of casting a final attack on death. This deals moderate Bomb damage with a chance to Stagger. If defeated at the same time as all other foes remaining, the Steel Fish will not use its final attack.

In EBF5, loses its Wind attacks, and primarily uses Thunder and Bomb attacks. It retains its trademark missile attack, though it now mimics Energy Bomb instead of being a unique attack. Hitting the Jet Fish with Syphon will stop it from using its final attack, letting the player avoid some extra damage.

Thunder attacks work well on it, but since this foe is often paired with the Thunder-absorbing Copper Fish in EBF4, Wind and Bomb attacks work best when using multi-target abilities. However, it is quite resistant to both Earth and Poison/Bio. Shockwave and Plasma Field (plus Air Strike in 4) are probably the best options, depending on what foes are accompanying it.
