Power Metal

Power Metal's speakers

"Some of you may prefer to use ear plugs now. I CAN'T HEAR MYSELF SPEAK."
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Power Metal is a recurring spell in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It summons two large speakers that briefly play intense rock music, hitting all foes with Wind-elemental magic damage and slightly healing the entire party at the same time.

Description

Power Metal appears in all games of the main series, being one of Matt's special skills in EBF1 and 2, and a shared skill for Matt, Lance and NoLegs (only in 5) in subsequent games. In most games, its power can be boosted by equipping a guitar-based weapon such as the Razorback.

EBF4 introduced a Limit Break counterpart of Power Metal - Death Metal, which is essentially a much stronger version with the same properties and special effects.

Epic Battle Fantasy

Power Metal deals magic damage to all enemies and also heals the party slightly. It works well with the Rune Blade, which increases Matt's Magic Attack by 30% (thereby boosting both the damage and healing effect of Power Metal).

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

Power Metal is one of the most accurate attacks in the game. It still costs 100 MP to use, and works best with the Razorback, which increases Matt's Magic Attack by 30% and boosts Power Metal's damage.

Before the EBF Collection update, it used Natalie's Accuracy (including Blind) instead of Matt's.

Trivia

  • In the first two games and pre-2016 update EBF3, using Power Metal caused the speakers to play a portion of Through the Fire and Flames by DragonForce (lampshaded by Matt, who says "Through the fire and the flames we carry on!" when using Power Metal for the first time). In EBF4, 5 and the 2016 update of EBF3, they instead utilize Winter Night's Journey (Through The Storm) by LEAF XCEED. However, Matt's EBF3 line was not updated to account the change.
    • This is referenced when using Power Metal in EBF5, where Matt says "THROUGH THE FIRE AND THE FLAMES WE CARRY- Oh, hold on - that's a different song."
