The Red Crystal is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears primarily as a helper to Dark Godcat/The Destroyer and Dark Natalie bosses. It is a member of the Crystal enemy class.


As the name suggests, the Red Crystal is a large crimson gemstone with a black symbol on it, somewhat resembling a mass of thorns or perhaps fire. Around the crystal is a set of four small orbiting crystals of the same color.


The Red Crystal is a foe scarcely fought, but is still fairly tough given how unexpected it will be for the first time. As the color scheme hints at, the Red Crystal specializes in Fire-elemental attacks and therefore may inflict Burn or Berserk on players. It also has a buffing skill, improving both offenses of its allies somewhat.

Defensively, while the Red Crystal absorbs both Fire and Thunder, it has no other resistances and a great many weaknesses. As such, there are many ways the player can go about slaughtering them; Flood, Air Strike, Iceberg, Gaia Bloom, Airwave, Aqua Arrow, and Icicles are all great choices for fighting Red Crystals.
