"Taste the rainbow! (TM!)"
―Matt / Anna, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Rainbow Rafflesia is an optional boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It's a stronger version of Rafflesia and is fought on Battle Mountain — as such, it is exclusive to the Steam release of the game and the post-Battle Mountain update version of the Premium Pack.


Its design is naturally very similar to basic version of this boss — Rafflesia. The main differences are: its petals now have all colors of the rainbow, it now has curled vines instead of giant leaves on back, and its teeth are now white instead of yellow.


The Rainbow Rafflesia maintains many of its previous attacks, but now also has whole "rainbow" of elemental AoE spells in its arsenal, such as Firestorm and Gaia Blossom. It also receives a new signature spell, which is is an arched rainbow beam shot from the flower on Raff's head, dealing immense damage to a single target. Rainbow Rafflesia also has one of the strongest AoE buffs in the game, which heals itself, erases negative status effects and buffs, Blesses itself for nine turns on Hard/Epic, and summons cannon fodder in form of Rainblooms, which in turn can cast various elemental single-target spells like Fireball and Iceshard.

Defeating Rainbow Rafflesia on Epic difficulty will reward the player with the "End Of The Rainbow" medal.

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.

  • ≥65% HP → Leaf Whip (3/12), Thorny Vine (3/12), Firestorm (1/12), Thunderstorm (1/12), Icestorm (1/12), Hurricane (1/12), Bubble Blast (1/12), Gaia Blossom (1/12). Summons a Rainbloom each turn;
  • <65% to ≥49% HP → Thorny Vine (3/15), Firestorm (1/15), Thunderstorm (1/15), Icestorm (1/15), Hurricane (1/15), Bubble Blast (1/15), Gaia Blossom (1/15), Rainbow (3/15), Healing Skill (3/15). Keeps summoning Rainblooms;
  • <49% to ≥32% HP → Same as before, but with Thorny Vines instead of Thorny Vine. Now summons two Rainblooms per turn instead of just one;
  • <32% HP → Triple Leaf Whip (3/18), Thorny Vines (3/18), Firestorm (1/18), Thunderstorm (1/18), Icestorm (1/18), Hurricane (1/18), Bubble Blast (1/18), Gaia Blossom (1/18), Rainbow (3/18), Healing Skill (3/18). Keeps summoning two Rainblooms per turn.


Notice: On higher difficulties, enemy damage spikes when they reach level 33, up to twice the expected damage (see here for more info). As Battle Mountain's battles scale to party's average level, keep your party under level 33 to make Battle Mountain-related medals easier during the first playthrough.


  • It may appear that elemental resistance is worthless, due to numerous elements Rainbow Rafflesia uses. That is not true. Some equipment pieces provide a few elemental resistances at once, and when combined wisely, this can give some resistance against most (if not all) of Raff's magic, reducing its damage to Regen-able amounts, or nullifying it outright.
  • When fought during the Mega Boss Rush, equipping a character with the Golden Armor will make the wearer be immune to three of its attacks. Unfortunately, said armor is only found after beating the individual Rainbow Rafflesia encounter.
  • Because the Rainbow Rafflesia is only resistant to Dark and Holy, any other elements can be used without fear of dealing low damage. The Wet status effect can be used to boost Ice and Thunder attacks until it is cleansed with the Healing Skill.

  • Most of Rainbow Rafflesia's offensive abilities target all players, and can inflict nasty status effects, though the chance for the latter isn't too high. Be ready to use Healmore, Slime Bunny and occasionally Purify.
  • The Rainbow Rafflesia (along with the Rainblooms) can use all elements except for Holy, Bomb and Dark.
  • Surprisingly, unlike basic Rafflesia, Rainbow Rafflesia doesn't resist neither Poison element nor Poison status. However, this tactic isn't much reliable due to the chance of Healing Skill getting used, cancelling Poison and (on higher difficulties) giving an immunity against it for 9 turns.
  • Boss' Healing Skill can be used before Bless expires, meaning that it is likely to have a Magic Defence buff for the rest of the battle. Giga Drill along with an attack buff can be used to outdamage its healing.
  • Anna's Whirlwind skill hits the boss' Wind weakness and has a chance to debuff its Magic Defence, partially counteracting the Healing Skill, but the debuff chance is rather low — 35% with the skill maxed, considering all resistances.


  • Rainbow Rafflesia's base Magic Attack is technically higher than Godcat's, a near omnipotent being.
