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.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Syphoned → Backflip;
  • Berserked → Burning Dive;
  • Otherwise → Backflip (1/3), Burning Dive (1/3), Alcoheal (1/3).

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

  • If catch score >55 and all players are Lovable → Surrender;
  • If Syphoned → Hit (1/2), Backflip (1/2);
  • If Berserked → Burning Dive;
  • <49% HP → Alcoheal (6/9), Hit (1/9), Backflip (1/9), Burning Dive (1/9);
  • Otherwise → Hit (1/3), Backflip (1/3), Burning Dive (1/3).

Additionally, if any front line player has equipment that scares Beasts, the Tanuki Dog will simply Surrender on their turn.

The Dog will target the last player who attacked them with their attacks (auto-skills from equipment are also taken into account, except when it's a summon). That said, if their selected target happens to be Burned or Scorched, they'll switch to a different target (picked at random), unless there aren't any other players alive.

Summon

In EBF5, the foe can be captured to be used as a summon.
