"Wow, I'm tired after that. I need to work out more. For reals."
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Legend used on a Spirit. (EBF2)

Legend is one of Matt's most powerful and iconic Bushido skills in the Epic Battle Fantasy series, appearing in all games of the series.

Description

Matt jumps at the targeted foe and slashes them with his sword. He follows up with several small stabs before delivering a final downward chop.

Legend's element depends on Matt's currently equipped weapon. It may also activate any weapon's special on-hit effects, which make up for the lack of damage when compared with an appropriate elemental skill (such as Cataclysm) boosted by a matching sword.

In EBF4 and EBF5 respectively, Dark Matt and Matteus can also use Legend, without any negative consequence to themselves.

Finishing hit has 50% chance of triggering bonus skills at 100% of host skill's power.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Legend has been both improved and weakened. On one hand, its base damage and crit chance have increased, it no longer halves the weapon's element %, and now can inflict statuses with the small combo attacks, even if at a very small chance. On the other hand, it now gives Matt the Tired status after being used, making it slightly less comfortable to use repeatedly.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Legend gained another power boost and no longer inflicts Tired on Matt with each use; however, it also comes with a 2-turn cooldown to prevent it from being spammed.

Trivia

  • The attack animation for Legend is used in Matt's profile in the EBF3 intro cutscene.
  • Legend could be seen as Matt's counterpart to Lance's Unload skill, both dealing high weapon-elemental damage in several hits. This is especially true in EBF4, where both skills cause negative consequences to the user, or in EBF5, where both have long cooldowns.
  • The skill's name might be a reference to the Unleash skill of the same name from Golden Sun: The Lost Age.
