Status

EBF4 Status Effects, with a certain foe having immunity to all of them.

Status effects, commonly shortened to just statuses, are special conditions in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. They can be inflicted during battle, hindering or helping their prowess in a variety of ways. Since Epic Battle Fantasy 3, hovering the cursor over an inflicted status effect will show its description.

Negative status effects are often referred to as "ailments" or "debuffs", while positive status effects may be called "buffs". However, they should not be confused with abilities or equipment that modify stats (although some status effects also affect the target's stats).

Additionally,

  • Most negative and many neutral status effects can be cured. Standard methods include Garlic (since EBF3) / Antidote (EBF1&2) as consumable items, Purify, Medipack (since EBF3) and Cleanse (EBF4) as ordinary skills, Heaven's Gate's and Seraphim's Unleashes (EBF3 only) as self-heals, and Kyun (since EBF2) as a Limit Break. Dying also works.
  • Most status effects also fade/wear off over time/turns.
  • All status effects will be cleared upon returning to overworld (since EBF3) or reaching a checkpoint (EBF1&2).
  • Most of status effects can be stacked, e.g. inflicting tier 2 Poison three times on the same target will result in tier 6 Poison, not considering status fading. However, for most statuses it only increases their duration and not the strength of their effects.
  • The division between positive, negative and neutral statuses is purely for user convenience and may not accurately reflect their technical category in-game.

Positive status effects

Auto-Revive / Autolife (Gold halo / white feather)

  • EBF5 Status Auto Revive

    in 3+

    EBF2 Status Auto Revive

    in 2

    Typical cause: Certain skills and the passive effects of some equipment.
  • Effects: The target immediately comes back to life when its HP hits 0, retaining stat (de)buffs and most status effects except Auto-Revive itself, and regains a portion of its HP. In EBF2, only stat (de)buffs are retained, as with normal revival.
  • Cure: Dispel (except in EBF3), defeat the target, or wait for it to wear off (except if on EBF2 Spirit).
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 2, under the name Autolife; renamed into Auto-Revive in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Bless (Four-leaf clover)

  • EBF5 Status Bless

    in 5

    Status Bless
    Typical cause: Certain healing skills and the passive effects of some equipment. Breeze weather.
  • Effects: The target is immune to be inflicted with "negative" status effects, including (but not limited to) Dispel, Doom and Instant Death, as well as Wet and most instances of Berserk. Doesn't clear already inflicted status effects. Doesn't affect self-induced statuses, such as Bone Armor's Curse. Doesn't affect stat debuffs.
  • Cure: As it cannot be Dispelled, the only cure is to wait for it to wear off with time.

Charge (Yellow spark)

  • Cure: None; either defeat the affected foe or disable them (preferably with Stun or Freeze; Syphon and Berserk may or may not work, depending on the foe) and wait it out.

Curse (Black vortex/Three dark circles)

  • EBF5 Status Curse

    Typical cause: Dark-based skills. Some equipment inflicts this on the user.
  • Effects: Target's Defence and Magic Defence are debuffed by 10% each turn, with the usual stat (de)buff fading (by 5%) going afterwards — in total, the debuff would be 15% per turn when the affected has corresponding stat buffs, or 5% otherwise.

  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Delete (Red cross)

  • EBF5 Status Delete
    Typical cause: The Devourer's "Delete Earth" attack, used when it reaches roughly 25% HP.

Dispel / Debuff (Broken yellow disk)

  • Status Dispel
    Typical cause: Certain skills. Stormy weather.
  • Effects: The target loses any buffs and "positive" status effects it had. The status isn't lasting, thus doesn't prevent applying the buffs again. Doesn't affect Wet, EBF3 Berserk and EBF3 Auto-Revive.
  • Cure: Buff back. Try to prevent Dispel via corresponding status resistance or Bless.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy, under the name Debuff (not to be confused with stat debuffs); renamed into Dispel in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.

Doom (Black/gray skull)

  • EBF5 Status Doom

    in 5

    Status Death

    in 4

    Status Doom

    in 3

    Typical cause: Dark-based skills, Cursed Land weather.
  • Effects: Applies Instant Death onto the target when the status expires (its "timer" reaches zero), OR light non-elemental damage if Death was resisted. Cannot be stacked. "Timer" will jump to 1 if Bad Luck is applied while active, and will immediately cause Instant Death if inflicted on a target already suffering from Bad Luck.

Enchanted (Golden slime)

  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Freeze (Ice crystal)

  • EBF5 Status Freeze

    in 5

    Status Freeze
    Typical cause: Ice-based skills, being hit by a skill that causes Chill while Wet.
  • Effects: Target skips their turn as long as they are Frozen. They take increased damage from the next attack that hits them, which cancels Freeze. In EBF4, Poison and Burn will not cause damage, yet continue to tick down.
  • Cure: Damaging (including cases when damage is nullified by elemental resistance) or healing the target; Purify and Cleanse will not help. For players, "forced" movement also helps, such as catching items, intro animations of certain summons and Limit Breaks (except in EBF3), and in EBF2 cheering after clearing a wave. Additionally, EBF3 Freeze lasts forever until disrupted, thus waiting it out wouldn't work.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 2.

Hungry (Fork and knife)

  • EBF5 Status Hungry
    Typical cause: Some foe's skills, caused by Mammoths upon dying.
  • Effects: The affected becomes uncontrollable and eats a random food.

  • Status Death
    Typical cause: Dark-based skills, being hit by a skill that causes Doom when Bad Luck is active.
  • Effects: The target dies, regardless of its health remaining. The status isn't lasting.
  • Cure: Revive. Corresponding status resistance (including Bless) is the only way to prevent Instant Death; otherwise, Auto-Revive and Morale can be used to minimize the harm. Good Luck status will cause Instant Death to be reduced to Stagger instead.
  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 3, but similar effects existed since Epic Battle Fantasy 2.

Invisible (Black slime)

  • EBF5 Status Invisible
    Typical cause: Some foe's skills, some pieces of equipment when defending.

  • First appeared in: Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Poison (Green bubbles)

In EBF3, players also gain Freeze immunity, while foes also half physical damage taken.
