The Stumpy Gloop (known as Tree Gloop in several demos) is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is generally found in grassy or forested areas, such as the Mystic Woods and Wild Tropics.

Appearance

The Stumpy Gloop resembles a stump split in half horizontally with a black blob in the middle. It has 2 white eyes and slim arms. The top of the stump has a few twigs and leaves sticking out, while the bottom has several short roots that the Gloop uses for locomotion.

The Stumpy Gloop has two variants, distinguished by the size of their eyes and the arrangement of twigs on the top halves of their shells.

Overview

The Stumpy Gloop is a mid-tier foe that uses physical attacks against the party. It mainly uses part-Dark attacks with its arms and other constructs it produces from its blobby mass, but it can also cast Lumber for multiple stronger hits of pure Earth damage and a high chance of Stagger. If it feels threatened, it can guard itself to buff its Magic Defence and give itself Bless, making it immune to negative status conditions and Dispel.

On Hard and Epic difficulty settings, the Stumpy Gloop's Dark attacks have a small chance to make the targeted player Heavy, increasing the damage of Lumber and other Earth attacks. Its defensive skill gives it more Bless stacks as well as a Defence buff, making it more durable.

A Stumpy Gloop resists Earth and Water while absorbing Dark; on the other hand, it is weak to Thunder, Holy, and especially Fire. The latter weakness is compounded by its susceptibility to certain status effects: Burn and Scorch will deal more damage to it per turn, and Dry amplifies all forms of Fire damage (including Burn and Scorch). However, be quick about applying status conditions, as the Stumpy Gloop can easily set up Bless to negate them for a while.

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.

Action

  • If Syphoned, catch score >55, and all players are Lovable → Surrender;
  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Defend;
  • If Syphoned or Berserked → Arm Flail (1/2), Stab (1/2);
  • Otherwise → Hit (1/4), Lumber (1/4);
    • If it used Defend last turn → Head Bash (2/4);
    • Otherwise → Head Bash (1/4), Defend (1/4).

*Hit becomes Arm Flail when <49% HP.

Counter (only if Counter-Attacking Foes is enabled)

  • 25%;
    • If Syphoned → Defend;
    • Otherwise → Lumber.


Additionally, if any front line player has equipment that scares Trees, the Stumpy Gloop will immediately Surrender and Flee on their turn.

Summon

The foe can be captured to be used as a summon, or be randomly summoned by Amber Bobble (female hat) or Oak Staff (staff). It uses its Defend ability to give Morale to the entire team, temporarily protecting them from defensive debuffs and one-hit kills if their HP is above 50%.
