―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
EBF5 Status Lovable Lovable (as in "too pretty to harm"), often incorrectly read as Loveable, is a positive status effect in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is the less reliable opposite of the Target status, and its icon are two pink hearts side by side. It effects are as follows:
  • Cancels out Target.
  • Prevents the afflicted from being targeted by most single-target attacks. Attacks that target everyone evenly work normally.
    • Unlike Target, Lovable is typically ignored by attacks that target randomly, such as Anna's arrow barrages.
    • Spells cast by the Weather will ignore Lovable.
    • Due to how its targeting is coded, the Recycle spell used by certain foes doesn't respect Lovable.
    • If a player is inflicted with Berserk, they will ignore Lovable on foes, on the other hand, berserked foes will still respect Lovable on players.
  • When all players are Lovable, each foe will individually decide whether to activate their special reserved pattern (like with Syphon and Berserk), usually leading to either Surrendering or resorting to area-of-effect or buffing abilities; some require both Lovable and Syphon/Berserk in order to Surrender, or have other specific requirements.
    • Whether they decide to utilize the Lovable pattern is calculated by the capture formula, requiring a score of >55 (without taking into account the equipment+luck multiplier), checked at the beginning of every enemy turn. Simpler put, weaker foes will be affected right away unless buffed up, while stronger ones must be worn down to an extent. Unfortunately, the only way to check their current score without math is to attempt to capture a foe, which takes a turn, only works with one foe at a time and is very approximate.
      • The calculation does take into account the 10% randomization, thus, the foes' catch score actually needs to be above 61.(1) to guarantee they'll respect Lovable. On the other end, their catch score needs to be equal or below 50 to guarantee they won't respect Lovable. Anything in-between may or may not respect it depending on randomization.
      • Due to it being calculated off their catch score, enemies who cannot be captured will never respect Lovable if all players are inflicted by it.
