"That Purple Bee is a healer! Kill it!"
―Natalie, when a Purple Bee uses Heal for the first time, Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Purple Wasp, also known as Purple Bee, is a recurring foe in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It appears primarily in Vegetable Forest, Rock Lake (in Epic Battle Fantasy 3), and Lankyroot Jungle (in Epic Battle Fantasy 4). It is one of many Giant Insects the party encounters.

Appearance

It is a large butterfly-like creature with large purple eyes, a black body, giant purple wings, and two antennae coming out of the top of its head.

Overview

Like other Wasps, the Purple Wasp is a middling foe that is easily exterminated. However, Purple Wasps are considerably more dangerous than their fellow wasps; while incapable of summoning additional foes they can both heal the entire wave of foes as well as occasionally Syphon players. Thus, Purple Wasps should be prioritized over other enemies to prevent it from healing its allies.

Fortunately, the Purple Bee has plenty of weaknesses; in EBF3 it is weak to Thunder, Wind, Bomb, and especially Dark attacks. It has moderate resistance to Holy and Poison, but is nearly immune to Earth. Given when it is first fought, sticking to Thunder and Plasma should work best.

In EBF4, the Purple Wasp is largely unchanged from its EBF3 appearance. While appearing later on, the most meaningful difference is in resistances; the Purple Wasp now only resists Earth, while it is weak to Holy, Thunder, Wind, Poison and Fire. While Bullet Hell deserves special mention, the player has numerous options to take down Purple Wasps.
