Emo0114.jpg "Seven hells, this bow is heavy! This extra power better be worth breaking my arms for."
―Anna using the Juggernaut for the first time in battle, Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Juggernaut is a Bomb-elemental bow available for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

The Juggernaut is an angular bow made of metal piping with two spiked plates attached to the front. Its arrows are made of metal with a head consisting of a black ball and silver spikes; their tails end in metal projections instead of feathers, resembling a tiny trident in EBF4 and a "V" in EBF5. The latter game also darkened the dark grey parts of the Juggernaut, put three large spikes on each plate instead of six small spikes, and added an additional metal bar on the corners of the limbs, presumably for support. As described by Anna in the above quote, it is powerful, but exceedingly heavy in weight for a bow.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Juggernaut is a powerful and remarkably well-rounded offensive bow, boasting great Attack and strong defenses in exchange for subpar Magic Attack and an Evade penalty. However, its boost to Bomb skills is wasted on Anna unless she throws a Hand Bomb or unleashes Big Blast with the bow's weapon-elemental skills.

The Juggernaut has a unique combination of offense and defense which is virtually unparalleled among Anna's bows, as well as providing her with a means of inflicting some Bomb damage. However, it has serious competition for an offensive Anna build; the Thorn Bow has the same Attack stat and a more useful Poison boost, the Crystal Bow has comparable damage output and three elemental resistances, and the Iron Tooth has Stagger synergy and slightly more raw power.

The Juggernaut resists Bomb, but is weak to Earth. The Bomb resistance does not become an immunity at Level 5, while the Earth weakness remains constant at all forging levels.

Normal

The Juggernaut grants average bonuses to both Attack and Magic Attack, a small HP bonus, significant boosts to Defence and Magic Defence, and a small Evade penalty. It has a remarkably high chance of inflicting Dispel with weapon-elemental attacks, but this is somewhat redundant when Nitro Blitz does the same thing with more power (especially since it benefits from the bow's elemental boost). It can also make foes Surrender more quickly, slightly streamlining battles and assisting capturing attempts on some foes (especially when paired with Bow Whack).

Although the Juggernaut is a decent defensive bow, the Iron Tusk outclasses it offensively and the Alchemist's Bow has superior status infliction. Both of these bows are theoretically available before the Juggernaut, although completing the Freezeflame Dungeon before the Iron Fortress may be easier said than done.

The Juggernaut resists Dispel, Confuse, Stagger and Stun, becoming immune to all of them at Level 5.

The Alt Juggernaut is a gimmicky weapon meant for a prolonged siege. It boasts incredible bulk thanks to great Defence and Magic Defence as well as a superb HP boost; however, it slightly reduces Evade and offers mediocre Attack and Magic Attack bonuses. It has a significant chance to Stagger foes with weapon-elemental attacks, but it also has a high chance to Confuse Anna at the start of every turn, which severely hampers its utility without reliable status clearing from the rest of the party.

Fortunately for Anna, the Alt Juggernaut provides copious amounts of artillery support. Between every round of combat, it has a a small chance of deploying a M.O.A.B., a decent chance of dropping a Sea Bomb, and a high chance of firing a barrage of Machine Guns. While hampered by the bow's poor offenses and lack of a Bomb boost, these skills enable Anna to passively damage the enemies on essentially every turn.

Ultimately, the Alt Juggernaut is not a very useful weapon outside of tanking, as its frequent bouts of Confusion can greatly hinder attempts at support or offense. However, its array of automatic skills can also be useful for challenges that limit the party's size (like Anna's solo challenge in the Battle Arena or the 2-player battles in the Data Bunker). If constant artillery support isn't needed, the Alt Iron Tusk is a more powerful and reliable choice for a Bomb-elemental bow, despite its Accuracy problems. 

The Alt Juggernaut resists Dispel, Confuse, Stagger and Stun, all of which become an immunity at Level 5. Unfortunately, its Confuse resistance will not lessen the chances of its auto-status kicking in.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Juggernaut is found in a chest in the Waste Disposal Plant, behind and left of the Copper Block in the danger room. To get in, turn on switches (scattered in and around the Waste Disposal Plant) labelled II, III, VI, IX and X, and turn off the rest. The last switch is reached from the Temple of Godcat much later in the game.
