The Obsidian Idol is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Adventure Story. It is found primarily in Ashwood Forest (in EBF4). It is one of many members of the Idol enemy class.


The Obsidian Idol is a small black figure carved out of obsidian with lava dripping out from its eyes and mouth.


Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Obsidian Idols are weak foes that use Fire, Earth, and Dark attacks. They are not particularly strong, and can be wiped out easily.

There are plenty of ways to deal with them; Geyser works if you need single-target damage, but later in the game Ice Storm can clear out large groups. Of course, with other Idols using Shockwave can consistently obliterate them all.

Adventure Story

In Adventure Story, Obsidian Idols appear in the Volcano area, which makes up the final five levels of the game. Much like the Sand Idols and Ice Idols seen in earlier levels, Obsidian Idols attack by erratically bouncing towards Matt, trying to ram into him. When an Obsidian Idol's HP is depleted, it doesn't die right away; instead, it splits into two smaller pieces that behave identically to the original Idol but has lower HP.
