The Red Crystal is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5. In EBF4 it appears primarily as a helper to Dark Godcat/The Destroyer and Dark Natalie; in EBF5, it appears in the Data Bunker. It is a member of the Crystal enemy class.

Appearance

As the name suggests, the Red Crystal is a large crimson crystal 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.

Overview

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.

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.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Berserked → Energy Shot;
  • Syphoned → Grind;
  • Otherwise → Quad Prick (1/6), Grind (1/6), Dragon Flame (1/6), Hellfire (1/6), Energy Shot (1/6), Buff (1/6).

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Action

  • If Syphoned → Grind;
  • If Berserked → Energy Shot;
  • Otherwise → Quad Prick (1/6), Grind (1/6), Dragon Flame (1/6), Hellfire (1/6), Energy Shot (1/6), Buff (1/6).

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 25% and not Syphoned → Dragon Flame.

*Unlike most other foes, the Red Crystal's counter targets randomly, instead of always targeting its last attacker.


Additionally, like all the Classic foes, the Red Crystal ignores the Lovable status on players.

Summon

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

In EBF5, the foe can be captured to be used as a summon.
