The Neon Lightbulb is a Thunder-elemental cat toy available for NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Neon Lightbulb set is composed of two light bulbs with a bright yellow glow. Its offhand item is a compact fluorescent bulb held as a shield; its weapon is a fluorescent tube with two prongs on the tip and bolts of electricity visible within its bulb.

Normal

The Neon Lightbulb has an average boost to both Attack and Magic Attack, but it's more notable for the highest Evade bonus of any Cat Toy, synergizing well with NoLegs's best defensive stat. It also has a great chance of inflicting Stun with Weapon-elemental attacks (including its Normal Attack counter), and its Plasma Cage unleash can add even more stacks of Stun when triggered (although it's on the unreliable side). This allows NoLegs to single-handedly stun-lock entire waves of foes with Swift Slash, especially with equipment that boosts status infliction.

The Neon Lightbulb is objectively the best cat toy for NoLegs's Target Tank build, with its unparalleled Evade helping him prolong the status while safely drawing enemy fire away from his allies. As a weapon for disabling foes, it tends to be overshadowed by the Book of Spells, which has an even higher Freeze chance that can be boosted by Chill or Wet application and lends itself to damage combos. However, the Neon Lightbulb's superior Attack and Evade gives it a bit more oomph while helping NoLegs survive longer if its status doesn't take. Its counter attack theoretically gives it more Stunning potential, but unfortunately requires NoLegs to be actually hit first.

The Neon Lightbulb has an Earth weakness that remains at -30% no matter how much it is forged. It also resists Thunder and Dark, with neither becoming an immunity at Level 5.

The Alt Neon Lightbulb spurns its normal counterpart's legacy of stunning and dodging, instead being a simple heavy-damage Thunder weapon capable of Dispelling. It has a high boost to both Attack and Magic Attack, but no other stats. It counters attacks with a Normal Attack; like the rest of its single-target weapon-elemental skills, this can unleash Big Spark for extra damage that benefits from its elemental boost. Its weapon-elemental skills can also Dispel their targets, but the player has many other options to inflict the status.

Overall, the Alt Neon Lightbulb has impressive power but few secondary effects, relegating its niche to when NoLegs can make use of its elemental damage or resistances. It does have the best balance of Attack and Magic Attack of any cat toy aside from the Alt Star Hammer, but NoLegs's inclination for physical damage means that the likes of the Alt Viking Buckler, Alt Devil's Sunrise, and Alt Buster Sword will generally outperform it in a generalized offensive build.

The Alt Neon Lightbulb is weak to Water, staying at -30% at all forging levels. It resists Thunder and Dark, with neither becoming an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Neon Lightbulb is found inside a chest in the Iron Fortress, one screen west of the monolith room.
