The Ninja Skirt is a female armor found in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. In EBF4, it is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the post-Battle Mountain update version of the Premium Pack.

Its male armor and hat counterparts are Ninja Gear and Ninja Hood. Its hat counterpart is the Ninja Chopsticks (only in EBF5).

Description

The Ninja Skirt is an all-black dress with a knee-length skirt, buckled boots, detached sleeves, and a black top. The suit also has netting on the legs, the midriff, and as shoulder straps (for Anna) or in front of the chest (for Natalie).

In EBF5, the Ninja Skirt lost most of its netting elements and gained a number of white details, including bands around the forearms and waist, thin stripes down the right front side, and a design of overlapping diamond shapes on the right side of the skirt. It has black stockings with a row of small holes along the front side. Natalie's version has a narrow opening on the front of the chest, held shut by two pairs of crisscrossing laces; a white undershirt is added if "Cleavage" is disabled.

In all of its appearances, the Ninja Skirt mainly increases the wearer's Evade instead of their Defence and Magic Defence, also providing a good boost to Accuracy and empowering certain attack items.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Ninja Skirt increases Natalie's Evade and Accuracy well beyond any of her other armor options, but it has the worst Magic Defence of them all and its Defence is only slightly higher than that of the Cat Costume. It also triples the damage of Shurikens and buffs Natalie's Evade if she's hit by a powerful attack.

The Ninja Skirt can be paired with Evade-boosting hats like the Cat Ears or the Ice Shards to maximize the benefit Natalie receives from its evasion-focused stats; alternatively, bulky hats like the Drill Bits or the Cow Horns can be used to offset its frailty. Its Shuriken boost is fairly niche, but provides a decent physical attack (which doesn't rely on her poor physical stats) and a source of mild Wind damage; notably, it empowers Shurikens even more than the Ninja Cloak. Its stats and elemental resistance are helpful for dealing with Cosmic Monoliths; conveniently, the party will have their first battle with one shortly after the Ninja Skirt becomes available.

The Ninja Skirt resists Dark, Stun, and Evade debuffs, becoming immune to the latter at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Ninja Skirt is one of only two female armors to boost Accuracy, and it is literally three times better than the Flame Skirt in this regard. It also provides the second-highest Evade of any female armor (only behind the School Uniform), but its defenses are pathetically low. It greatly improves the damage of Shurikens and Hand Bombs, and has a chance to cast Bind between turns; the auto-skill is fairly insignificant, but may help against evasive foes.

The Ninja Skirt is primarily useful for throwing builds, giving Natalie and Anna powerful sources of Bomb and Wind damage. Its stats and auto-skill make it a decent choice for Giant Enemies, although the bulk of armors like the Green Dress or the Maid Outfit may prove more useful overall.

The Ninja Skirt resists Earth and Wind; neither becomes an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Normal

The Ninja Skirt's Defence and Magic Defence are among the worst of any female armor; conversely, it has fantastic Evade and is the only female armor to boost Accuracy (quite significantly, at that). It makes Wind skills stronger and boosts the power and effectiveness of thrown items - Shurikens, Hand Bombs, Bricks and Snowballs. It also grants the Invisible status to the wearer when Defending, which can be combined with the Target status to redirect and nullify single-target physical attacks.

Outside of its on-Defend Invisible, the Ninja Skirt's Target Tanking role is better performed by the Ranger Skirt and the Casual Skirt; they have identical Evade, slightly better defenses, and other useful support effects. For throwing builds, it contends with the Maid Outfit, which resists Earth instead of Dark, trades the Accuracy and Evade for better bulk and offensive stats, and boosts Food instead of Wind. The Sami Dress has a little more punch in a Wind-focused offensive build on top of better defenses and a handy buff boost; on the other hand, the School Uniform has even better Evade and a good Attack boost for all-out offense.

The Ninja Skirt resists Wind, Dark, and Stun, becoming immune to the latter at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Ninja Skirt has no bulk whatsoever, but compensates with great Evade, unmatched Accuracy, and respectable offenses. It powers up thrown attack items (the only Alt female armor to do so) and no less than three elements - Holy, Thunder, and Wind - that both Anna and Natalie can easily take advantage of.

The Alt Ninja Skirt is a solid piece of offensive gear, especially as part of a throwing build or when paired with the likes of the Alt Wrath of Zeus or the Alt Angel Wing. Its defensive assets are tricky at best, but it can be used with hats like the Alt Cat Ears or the Alt Bunny Ears for a dodge-based Target Tank. If its frailty is an issue and only one of its elements is being focused on for an offensive build, other armors provide better bulk in exchange for Evade and Accuracy; notably, the Alt Bubble Dress has identical offenses and much greater bulk in exchange for small Evade/Accuracy penalties and two different elemental boosts.

The Alt Ninja Skirt resists Holy, Thunder, and Wind; none of them become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Ninja Skirt can be found in a chest on Volcano Peak, lying in the open between a massive dragon skeleton and a path blocked by a Cosmic Monolith.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Ninja Skirt is found on Battle Mountain, specifically in one of two chests at the top-left of the desert block puzzle screen accessible after beating the seven-wave foe rush with foes from Goldenbrick Resort and early areas of the Temple of Godcat that appears as a Brown Dragon. The Stepladder is required to get this far.

Trivia

  • The EBF3 and 4 version of the Ninja Skirt may have been inspired by Natalie's outfit in Brawl Royale.
