The Panda Bear is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. They are generally found in the Mystic Woods. It is a member of the Bears enemy group.


The Panda Bear somewhat resembles a normal panda bear, though with a more normalized set of markings. It has black furred legs, a white furred head and back, and has two little rounded black ears. The Panda Bear also has green eyes and a little green leaf on its head.


The Panda Bear is the laziest of the bear family, and will not attack the party until the first 1% of its health has been taken off. As such, the party can basically disregard the Panda Bear until they have their buffs in place, and can instead focus on the other foes in the wave. That said, if damaged by a random summon or from a multi-target attack (or if the party specifically has equipment that scares beasts), the Panda Bear will still unleash its frenzy.

The Panda Bear specializes in Bio attacks, with all but two of its attacks being partially Bio elemental. As such, it also can fling out status with ease; it can readily attack with both Stun and Poison. To top it off, like other bears the Panda Bear will Berserk itself if it takes major damage, and will update its moveset to become more powerful if wounded. The Panda Bear also has some other tricks it can pull off, like a one-time Earth attack and the ability to roll in and attack backup players. Overall, the Panda Bear is a surprisingly strong foe if dealt with carelessly, and should be dealt with after the party has a chance to buff.

Panda Bears are only weak to Fire. However, they resists Dark, Holy, Water and Wind.

Panda Bears are notable for being the only foe to drop Bread.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

  • ≥99% HP and the players don't have any Beast scaring equipment → Nothing;
  • If catch score >55, all players are Lovable, and the Bear is not Berserked → Surrender;
  • If catch score >55, all players are Lovable, and the Bear is Berserked → Roll;
  • If Enrage was triggered this turn;
    • If Dump was already used or if Mature is turned off → Body Slam (1/3);
      • If Syphoned → Nothing (2/3);
      • Otherwise → Bamboo (1/3), Bamboo Trap (1/3);
    • Otherwise → Dump;
  • <79% HP or when Berserked;
    • If Dump was already used or if Mature is turned off → Body Slam (4/15), Roll (3/15);
      • If Syphoned → Nothing (8/15);
      • Otherwise → Bamboo (4/15), Bamboo Trap (4/15);
    • Otherwise → Body Slam (1/5), Roll (1/5), Dump (1/5);
      • If Syphoned → Nothing (2/5);
      • Otherwise → Bamboo (1/5), Bamboo Trap (1/5);
  • Otherwise → Maul.

Additionally, if any front line player has equipment that scares Beasts, the Panda Bear will inflict Berserk on themselves at the start of their turn (this does not take up their turn). This also makes them able to act even at full HP (it's specifically the equipment effect and not the Berserk that triggers this, thus inflicting Berserk through other non-damaging means will not cause them to act at ≥99% HP).

The Bear will target the last player who attacked them with their attacks (auto-skills from equipment are also taken into account, except when it's a summon).


The foe can be captured to be used as a summon.

Visually, it walks into the screen from the left and stomps its foot, casting Bamboo Trap on all players.
