The River Squid is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It is found in the Lankyroot Jungle. It is a member of the Squid enemy class.

Appearance

The River Squid is a large, blue specimen of squid. It has large yellow eyes, large tentacles, and its head is shaped much like a calabash.

Overview

Offensively, the River Squid specializes in Water-elemental attacks, and on Hard/Epic can use the dreaded Tsunami once it has lost about half of its health. All of its Water attacks can Wet the target, possibly following up with a Thunder attack for extra damage. It also packs strong single-target non-elemental attacks.

Defensively, the squid is quite bulky, but has few resistances and, besides other weaknesses, is extra vulnerable to Poison and Instant Death, which can be used to dispatch the foe in a far easier manner.
