To do: mostly EBF2 stuff.

The Nuclear Bomb is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 and 5. It is a member of the Bombs enemy group. In both games it appears primarily as a "turret" for Valkyrie (EBF2)/Neon Valkyrie (EBF5) tanks, but in EBF5 it is occasionally seen on its own.

Overview

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

It deals huge non-elemental damage when launched. Countdown length depends on difficulty, down to leaving just 2 turns to eat through its 90K health on Epic.

During EBF2 the Nuke appears as a helper for the Valkyrie Tank, which may be summoned as a random turret during tank's second phase. Its only "attack" is a countdown; when the countdown ends, it will launch itself and explode, dealing massive damage to Matt and Natalie, capable of easily killing them in one strike. Fortunately, it is relatively fragile compared to other components of the boss, especially when hit with its weakness.

On Epic Difficulty Nukes take only two turns to launch, and the Valkyrie Tank tends to spawn two at a time. In this situation, the only option may be to use the Ion Cannon summon.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

You get four turns to destroy the bomb, and can buy more time with status effects that prevent it from taking a turn — Stun and Freeze, or easily kill it with Instant Death. The three lamps on the bomb indicate how much time is left, with the green upper one lighting up when it's ready to launch.

While its 100% Fire-elemental damage can be resisted without much trouble, its ability to change the weather to Radiation is a serious effect that is worth trying to destroy the bomb before it launches. Some summons or Limit Breaks can be used to change the weather into something else, but note that the bomb's weather will first activate prior to your turn. Cat Ninja is the most efficient summon and has no negative side effects, but may give the foes extra turns along with the players.

Unlike most foes in EBF5 and like other Bombs, Nuclear Bomb cannot be captured to be used as a summon.

Battle logic

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Countdown starts from 4, visibly going down each time the bomb gets to take a turn. When 1 is reached, it'll be ready to launch the next time it gets a chance to. Presence of EBF5 Status Syphon Syphon is checked only when attempting to launch: if the foe is Syphoned, it cancels the launch and EBF5 Status Surrender Surrenders.
