The Ninja Gear (also known as Ninja Cloak) is a high-evade Male Armor available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Its hat counterpart is the Ninja Hood in EBF3 and EBF4 or the Basket Hat in EBF5, and its female armor counterpart is the Ninja Skirt.

Description

The Ninja Gear includes an all-black gi with matching socks and wooden sandals. A black sash is worn around the waist, with some Shurikens stored in it.

In EBF4, the Ninja Gear's sash has small golden details and roughly a half-dozen Shurikens stored in it, and its sandals are ash-grey to match the rest of its color scheme. It also has two metal studs in the cuffs of its sleeves, and Matt's version has a black scarf that hangs down his back.

In EBF5, the Ninja Gear has brown sandals, a red scarf, a shorter, all-black sash, and a single Shuriken placed on each side of the waist. It also gains large metallic cuffs with red trim near the openings of its sleeves. NoLegs has a modified version with only one Shuriken and an additional black piece that envelops his tail.

In all of its appearances, the Ninja Gear forgoes bulk in favor of granting significant Accuracy and Evade bonuses. It also tends to improve the power of thrown items, most commonly Shurikens.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Ninja Cloak has unparalleled Accuracy and Evade, but it has the worst Defence and Magic Defence of any male armor (it's tied with the Red Jacket for the former). As a result, Matt or Lance will need to rely on dodging attacks rather than tanking them, aided by the Ninja Cloak's ability to buff their Evade even further when they lose more than 50% of their HP to a single attack.

On the other side of the battle equation, the Ninja Cloak's offenses are quite high for a piece of armor; its Attack is second only to the Genji Armor, while its Magic Attack is tied with the Officer Coat and only surpassed by the Red Jacket. It also powers up Shuriken damage (but not as much as the Ninja Skirt), letting Matt or Lance use a decent part-Wind physical attack that also has a small Poison chance.

The Ninja Cloak resists Dark, as well as debuffs to Accuracy and Evade. It becomes immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Ninja Gear grants a huge boost to Accuracy and Evade, only beaten by the Cowboy Shirt in the former and matched by the Karate Gi in the latter...as well as arguably the worst bulk of any male armor. The Karate Gi has worse overall defenses, but it mitigates that with a good HP bonus; conversely, the Red Jacket has stronger defenses to balance out its HP penalty. Meanwhile, the Genji Armor has slightly worse Magic Defence but far stronger Defence and a useful Attack boost that the Ninja Gear lacks.

The Ninja Gear also makes thrown items thrice as powerful, allowing its wearer to do significant damage with Shuriken and Hand Bomb builds despite its lack of actual offensive stats.

The Ninja Gear has resistances to Thunder and Wind, although neither becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Ninja Gear has the best Evade of all male armor, and its Accuracy is only second to the Explorer's Jacket; on the other hand, its defenses are in the bottom three at best. It can give its wearer some insurance against physical attacks by making him Invisible upon Defending himself; however, this can backfire if the foes use magic attacks instead. Offensively speaking, it boosts the damage of Wind skills and thrown items, also improving the secondary effects of the latter.

The Ninja Gear is an especially good fit for NoLegs, who has natural Wind skills and the best base Evade of any player. Combined with other Evade-heavy gear like the Cat Tail, the Neon Lightbulb, and the Captain's Hat, NoLegs can become an effective Target tank who draws fire away from his allies while dodging the brunt of it to keep himself relatively safe (especially physical attacks, which can be absorbed by Invisible). Alternatively, the Ninja Gear can be part of an offensive build with the Honjo Masamune, giving NoLegs double-boosted Wind attacks and great Evade to offset his complete lack of bulk.

The Ninja Gear resists Thunder, Wind, Heavy and Light, becoming immune to the latter two at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Ninja Gear's only defensive asset is a good Evade stat; on the other hand, its nice boosts to Accuracy, Attack, and Magic Attack enable its wearer to hit enemies with lethal precision. It improves the power and effectiveness of thrown items (Brick, Hand Bomb, Shuriken, and Snowball), as well as no less than three elements: Thunder, Wind, and Dark.

As with its normal counterpart, the Alt Ninja Gear is a solid choice for NoLegs; not only does he have naturally high Evade, his base skill set includes moves to exploit all three elemental boosts. It can be paired with some of his Alt Cat Toys to further improve his ability to act as an all-out attacker (e.g. the Alt Devil's Sunrise or the Alt Neon Lightbulb) or an Evade-based Target tank (e.g. the Alt Pixel Popper or the Alt Honjo Masamune).

The Alt Ninja Gear resists the same elements that it boosts: Thunder, Wind, and Dark. None of these will become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Ninja Cloak is found in the restricted 30 Medals Area, which becomes accessible after getting 30 Medals.

The Ninja Gear is found inside a chest that drops after defeating ROBO in a secret room in No Man's Land; the entrance to the room opens once the party obtains the Axe.

Trivia

  • When the Ninja Cloak is equipped in EBF3, the character's overworld sprite shows him wearing brown wooden sandals without socks, while the actual in-battle outfit has black sandals with matching socks.
