  • The Pope Dress in EBF4.
  • EBF5 version.

The Pope Dress, also known as Pope's Dress in EBF4, is one of female armors in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Its hat counterpart is the Pope Hat.

Description

The Pope Dress is a largely white dress with red and gold trim, featuring a strapless bodice, a long skirt, and a knee-length jacket that hangs off of the wearer's shoulders.

This sacred clothing provides great resistance to both Holy and Dark elements, as well as the Curse status in EBF4 and Bad Luck in EBF5. In EBF3 it has rather average bonuses to both defensive stats and MP, while in later games it has no Defence bonus at all in exchange for a massive boost to Magic Defence; in EBF4 only, it also has an Attack penalty. While the Magic Defence bonus is superb, the lack of other meaningful stat boosts mean that the Pope Dress is generally outclassed statwise by other pieces of equipment except for against very specific foes (even moreso in EBF5). That said, the Pope Dress has two resistances of which at least one will almost always come up in the endgame (especially in EBF4 where the final boss fight uses both liberally), and the ability to occasionally apply Auto-Revive is quite useful in general. As such, while a fairly niche piece of equipment, the Pope Dress does have its assets which can make it useful in battle if the situation calls for it.

In EBF3, at level 4 it gains the ability to buff the user's Magic Defence when hit for >50% of maximum health; in EBF4, this ability was traded for occasionally summoning Revive at any level, providing a living party member with the Auto-Revive status (it can only target living ones). In EBF5, once it reaches level 5 it instead occasionally gives the Auto-Revive status to the wearer.
