―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 5
Sawblade

Sawblade is an advanced non-elemental special skill available for Matt, Lance, and Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5.

Description

Upon casting, a sawblade falls onto the battlefield and then rolls through the ground and slashing the target, dealing moderate physical damage with a chance to instantly kill the target. Contrary to its description, the EBF4 version doesn't ignore defence buffs — it was never programmed to do that.

It has an upgraded version in Triple Sawblades in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and Shredder in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.
