The Chopper

The Chopper is a non-elemental sword available for Matt in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.


The Chopper is a large two-handed hacksaw which appears to be made out of a tree; aside from a wooden frame, it also has a pair of leaves right next to the handle. The handle has some leather like material wrapped around it.

The Chopper (presumably on account of being a giant hacksaw wrought from a tree) will scare or anger certain Tree and Plant based foes into trying to Surrender or go Berserk with rage.

The Chopper provides a great Attack boost and a solid Defence boost, and it also slightly raises Health. That said, it does have very minor penalties to Accuracy and Evade. Despite its appearance, The Chopper is non-elemental, and more or less made to boost the Sawblade tree. It combines strong offenses with solid defenses, meaning that The Chopper will both dish out damage and take it fairly well. It also has a guaranteed chance of unleashing Sawblade as its bonus skill once maxed, which has a chance of inflicting Instant Death and adds a fair bit of extra damage. While the non-elemental aspect means that while it cannot deal extra damage against anything, The Chopper can be equally efficient no matter the foes the player is up against.

Unfortunately, The Chopper is basically just a more manageable but still vastly weaker version of its non-elemental cousins. The Chopper acts like a standardized version of the Giant Slayer and Berzerker, trading most of its stats for not having as much of an issue with Accuracy or Evade. While the Giant Slayer does not boost non-elemental skills, the Sawblade tree is the only one Matt has aside from Ragnarok and the Accuracy debuff can be mitigated with the Spelunking Hat and the like. All in all, The Chopper is a reliable and powerful weapon, but the next two weapons above it are far more powerful if one can handle their somewhat higher penalties.

The Chopper resists Water and Bio. Neither of these become immunities at level 5.

The Chopper can be found on the left side of the Grand Gallery, in the middle left chest guarded by the Gold Blocks.
