  • The Pope Hat in EBF4.
  • EBF5 version.

The Pope Hat, also known as the Pope's Hat in EBF4, is a female headgear available in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, 4 and 5. Its armor counterpart is the Pope Dress.

Description

The Pope Hat is a tall white hat with a red and gold trim at the bottom, and a small golden button at the center. In EBF5, it has a large vertical strip of red along the center of it with thin gold lines running along the sides of the red portion. In the center of the red area there is a large golden cross emblazoned onto it.

In EBF3, the Pope Hat provides fairly balanced boosts with a strong Magic Defence boost, an average Defence boost and somewhat raising MP. However, in later games the Pope Hat provides nothing but a massive Magic Defence bonus. While this can help the user weather various magical attacks, the lack of any other stats means that the Pope Hat has a very niche use most of the time. The Pope Hat is also noteworthy in EBF5 for the ability to scare ghost type enemies, potentially making them Flee, Surrender or go Berserk.

The Pope Hat's resistances tend to vary a bit, but have some common threads. Prior to EBF5 the Pope Hat provides resistance to Holy and Dark, with Weaken resistance being added in EBF4. In EBF5 its resistances change considerably; while it retains the Holy resistance, it now resists Water, Curse and Bad Luck. The Weaken, Curse and Bad Luck resistances reach immunities at level 5 in their respective games.

Found in a chest behind the four-lever spike puzzle in the Temple of Godcat. Renamed from Pope Hat into Pope's Hat, it no longer boosts Defence nor MP, but its Magic Defence bonus is greatly increased. The Pope's Hat now also gives resistance to Weaken, up to an immunity at max level.
