"How is that cyclops speaking without a mouth? Is it just talking out of its ass?"
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Jotun is the first boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 5, and also a summon. He appears in Hope Harbor, blocking the path to the Ice Cave.

Appearance

Jotun is a cyclops with one big eye, three claw toes on each foot, and a belly for mouth. He has brown skin, and has two giant arms, with spikes coming out of them. He has giant hands with four fingers, claws, and a rope around his left hand. He wears a red kilt, with a brown belt holding it up, and has an "X" marked spot on his head.

If you have the mature filter on, he will have a brown dong, dangling below his kilt, and two black dots near his eye, presumably nipples.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Start of turn:

  • Summon score ≥ 3;
    • If fighting in the boss rush;
      • If playing on Hard/Epic and Jotun is <49% HP → Summons a Marble Boulder;
      • Otherwise → Summons a Gem Idol;
    • Otherwise;
    • Summon Score increases by 1 every turn Jotun is the only foe alive (checked at the start of
      Jotun's turn), and resets to 0 after summoning foes.

Action:

  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Ground Pound (2/5), Eye Lasers (1/5), Bomb Throw (1/5),
    Buff (1/5);
  • If Berserked → Body Slam;
  • <39% HP and both Attack and Magic Attack buffs are lower than 10% → Buff;
  • <39% HP → Ground Pound (1/4), Slam (1/4), Eye Lasers (1/4), Bomb Throw (1/4);
  • <74% HP → Body Slam (1/5), Ground Pound (1/5), Slam (1/5), Eye Lasers (1/5), Bomb Throw (1/5);
  • Otherwise → Triple Punch (1/3), Body Slam (1/3), Ground Pound (1/3).

* If <65% HP and playing on Hard/Epic, Ground Pound is immediately followed by either casting Tremor on all players or Quake on one random player (same 1/2 chance for each).

Strategy

Equipment

Jotun's weakness to Water can easily be exploited by the Sapphire Saint sword. While the Black Fang is also fairly effective, the Wet condition caused by Water attacks will make Ice attacks even more effective against him.

Try to get Earth and Bomb resistance, since Jotun only uses those 2 elements.

Battle

As the game's first boss, Jotun is not terribly difficult. Try to keep the party's Defence and Magic Defence buffed up first (while Jotun mainly uses physical attacks at first, he starts using strong magical attacks once his HP gets lower), then buff up Matt and/or NoLegs Attack and Natalie's Magic Attack; Matt and NoLegs should focus on using Water-elemental attacks, while Natalie should use Ice.

Once Jotun gets low on HP he'll start buffing himself up, and he'll rebuff whenever his offensive buffs get too low. This behaviour can be abused with NoLegs' Star Blast and The Destroyer, which will Dispel him and force him to use up his next turn rebuffing.

Keep in mind the Sandstorm weather present in the fight majorly benefits Jotun, since the Dry inflicted on the players will increase his own Bomb damage, while the Dry inflicted on him will damper his Ice weakness (try to remove the Dry with a water attack before using any ice attacks).

Quotes

Like most other Epic Battle Fantasy 5 bosses, Jotun will speak to the party during the battle. He calls the party "chimps" and himself "cyclops".
