The Muddy Bush is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5, and a summon in the latter. In EBF4, it appears mostly in Lankyroot Jungle, while in EBF5 it can be found in the Mystic Woods. It is a member of the bush enemy class.

Appearance

The Muddy Bush looks like a blob of mud with a small amount of green leaves sticking out. In EBF5, they can have ferns, lily pads and cattails growing on them.

Overview

The Muddy Bush is a weak foe that can be easily taken out by pretty much anything. It can debuff either the party's Attack (EBF4) or Magic Attack (EBF5), but the party can basically ignore them. Due to their low threat levels, the party should just wipe them out through multi-target attacks.

The Muddy Bush absorbs Water, but has a variety of weaknesses. For the most part, any non-Water attack will take them out.

In EBF4, Muddy Bushes can also be summoned into battle by a Big Muddy Bush.
