The Red Bush is a recurring foe in the Epic Battle Fantasy series, first appearing in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is found mostly around nature-themed areas, such as Vegetable Forest (in EBF3), Ashwood Forest and Lankyroot Jungle (in EBF4). On the other hand, they frequent Redpine Town in EBF5. It is one of many members of the Bushes enemy class.

Appearance

It is an orange bush which has brown shiny eyes and a leaf on the top. In EBF3, it is the only bush whose appearance doesn't vary.

Overview

The Red Bush is mostly identical to the Green Bush, except for a slight health boost in EBF3 and having slightly more powerful skills in EBF4 and 5. Sharing elemental resistances/weaknesses and other statistics with most small Bushes, the Red Bush will likely die to a single effective attack or a strong neutral attack.

Its only somewhat threatening ability is to inflict a slight Defence debuff on players, increasing physical damage dealt by the bush's stronger allies; in EBF5, the Red Bush also gains a skill with a small Stun chance. Other than that, the foe lacks any special traits and can be either ignored or easily killed before it gets a chance to use any of these attacks.
