- "I'm only here to CONSUME AND DESTROY!!
And I'm all out of consumables!"
- ―Matteus, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Matteus is a clay golem that resembles Matt. His "skin" is dirty brown, his hair is a light blonde, and his eyes are black with yellow pupils. He wields the Berzerker and wears the Pirate's Hat and Hobo's Clothes.
He seems to have a similar penchant for gluttony as Matt, but to a horrifically exaggerated degree- throughout his battle he expresses his desire to eat the party's flesh.
As with other Evil Player battles, the left side will be under effect of a special unremovable status until the boss is defeated. Matteus' is Stoned. As long as Matteus is alive, the players are unable to use limit breaks. There is no limit break bar and selecting the attack button will default to their normal attack. They can still gain limit breaks, but will be unable to use it. The status effect will start at a timer of 15, counting down each turn. On the turn that it reaches -1, all players will be striped of auto-life, morale, invisible, enchant, and will be dealt 10 times their maximum HP in perfectly accurate damage, guaranteeing a Game Over. As opposed to most of Matt's single target attacks, most of Matteus's hit the whole party (save for those in backup).

To do: insert battle logic here
On his 16th turn Matteus will kill everyone. There is no way to avoid the attack.
Stoned puts a strict time limit on the battle, requiring the party to maximize their damage output each turn to avoid a Game Over. The Virus and Poison status effects will allow for consistent damage over time even when the party is forced onto the defensive, and Matteus' vulnerability to Wet and Dry is conducive to setting up combos that can exploit his weakness to Water, Ice, and Bomb.
Summoning Slime Bunny or having equipment that can passively grant effects like Regen, Autolife, or Morale can be helpful to minimize the amount of turns spent healing. While most of Matteus' attacks are non-elemental, resistance to Earth, Water, and Bio will help mitigate some of his skills, additionally, applying Tired and Weaken can greatly reduce Matteus' damage output. Since only one of Matteus' attacks is magical, physical Defence buffs/equipment should be prioritized over Magic Defence ones. Poison/Virus immunity is important if you plan to use the Virus status on him, and having something to reduce the likelihood of Weaken and Tired being applied will make sure the party can deal enough damage within the turn limit.
When Matteus reaches his Limit Breaks, use a Demon Mirror summon to nullify his party-killing physical Limit swords, thus avoiding the need to spend several turns reviving.
By maximizing Poison and Virus stacks, and also applying Tired and Invisible on Matteus, the damage dealt from the statuses alone will be enough to kill him before the turn limit runs out. This allows the party to play defensively while letting the statuses slowly kill Matteus. The Beholding Eye and Biohazard Blaster will be needed to inflict the Virus stacks, once those are maxed, Natalie will switch to the Dark Tooth to inflict Invisible (the Obsidian Staff won't work due to requiring more than one stack of Invisible to be inflicted), aside from those, gear that grants Bio resistance should be used to prevent the backlash from Virus spreading back to your own party members, along with buffing gear on whoever has Protect and status gear on whoever will be inflicting Tired (inflicting Weaken is also recommended to reduce Matteus' offences).
Alternatively, a more straightforward approach with abusing Matteus' Bomb weakness also works out very well. Lance will be your main attacker with the Heavy Claw and Camo Jacket to deal as much damage as posible with Big Bullet (it's a good idea to inflict both Brave and Good Luck on him, since this way Big Bullet has a guaranteed chance to score a critical hit); Matt should use the Devil's Fork, Cardboard Box and Hipster Shirt and first focus on buffing his allies with Temper, Protect and Reflex, then switch to inflicting Dry on Matteus to increase Bomb damage dealt; Natalie will use the Elder's Wisdom to inflict Enchanted on Matteus, which will further double Lance's damage. All this combined will allow Lance to deal about a quarter of Matteus' HP per attack. NoLegs with the Honjo Masamune and the Camo Jacket can also be used instead of Lance, this gives you even more damage, but it's much riskier due to how frail NoLegs will be. As usual, inflicting Tired and Weaken on Matteus can help you weather his attacks while you're setting up.
