  • Red Ribbon in EBF4.
  • EBF5 version.

The Red Ribbon is a recurring female headgear in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. Although it was largely irrelevant from a gameplay perspective until Epic Battle Fantasy 3, it has appeared in every Epic Battle Fantasy game to date as Natalie's default headgear (albeit with some design changes). Its armor counterpart is the Red Dress.

Description

The Red Ribbon, as the name suggests, is a pair of long red ribbons, each attached to a rose. In EBF5, its color changes if its wearer dons the Magical Skirt; Natalie gets a pink rose with pink ribbons, while Anna gets a pink rose with white ribbons.

The Red Ribbon's primary attribute is increasing its wearer's resistance to Fire, although it also has decent and often balanced defenses.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Red Ribbon has a good boost to Magic Defence, a fair boost to Defence, and small boosts to HP and Magic Attack. It also boosts the power of Fire Rain if Natalie uses a Magmaball.

The Red Ribbon resists Fire, up to 50% at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Red Ribbon has decent Magic Defence and Defence as well as minor Attack and Magic Attack, making it a fairly balanced hat. However, it lacks any other effects beyond its Fire resistance (up to 50% at maximum level), so more specialized headgear can eclipse it as the game progresses.

Normal

With modest offensive boosts and average defensive boosts, the Red Ribbon doesn't seem particularly exceptional aside from its elemental resistances. However, forging it to its maximum level enables it to grant Auto-Revive between turns; while the trigger chance is small, it can still give Natalie or Anna a welcome safety net in any build where more specialized headgear isn't required.

Much like the Red Dress it comes with, the Red Ribbon resists Fire, Ice and Thunder; it won't be immune to any of them at Level 5.

Equip Remix

The Alt Red Ribbon has small offensive penalties, mediocre Defence and Magic Defence, and decent Accuracy and Evade, making it a primarily defensive hat. However, its Equipment Effects make it a phenomenal asset for a status infliction build; not only does it increase the chance of landing status effects, it also grants Good Luck to its wearer, either randomly between turns or when she Defends herself.

The Alt Red Ribbon resists Bad Luck, Curse, and Dispel, becoming immune to all of them at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The player begins the game with the Red Ribbon in their inventory.

Trivia

  • The Red Ribbon's design in EBF1 had a small gold star attached to the ribbon below the rose. The star would later reappear in the series as a separate equip - the Star Hairclip.
