Knife 5.png

The Knife is a non-elemental "staff" available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 5.

Description

The Knife is a typical chef's knife, with a black handle and a shiny steel blade. Three small silver bolts can be seen on the handle; two near the blade and one on the end.

Normal

The Knife gives a massive boost to Attack, as well as sharply boosting Accuracy and Evade; unfortunately, its complete absence of a Magic Attack stat makes it impractical for the magic-focused Natalie. It does improve the power of Food and buffing skills, making it hypothetically viable for a support-oriented build; however, the Beholding Eye has a better set of abilities and resistances, in addition to a handy debuff boost (although it can't empower items).

What really sets The Knife apart from other physically-inclined staves (such as the Soul Crusher or the Gigavolt) is its very high chance to inflict Instant Death with Weapon-elemental attacks; thanks to a Normal Attack counter, it can even do this on the enemies' turn. Combined with its boosts, it can find use as part of an offensive support build where Natalie uses buffs and Instant Death instead of direct damage. In this case, status infliction-boosting gear (i.e. the Blue Elephant and the Red Dress) and Good Luck/Bad Luck support can improve the odds of Instant Death.

The Knife grants resistances to Curse, Bad Luck, Doom and Death, becoming immune to all of them at Level 5.

With colossal Attack and substantial Accuracy and Evade (all of which are the second-highest among Alt staves), The Alt Knife is a deadly weapon for physical offense...so, naturally, it's wielded by the least physically-inclined character in the party. However, while Natalie lacks any physical skills besides her Normal Attack, the staff's abilities provide some useful compensation for this unorthodox role.

The Alt Knife has a high chance to unleash Fork Frenzy with Natalie's Weapon-elemental skills, as well as casting Sword Storm between turns. Both skills are enhanced by the staff's non-elemental boost while running off its exemplary Attack stat, allowing them to deal good damage. Additionally, it often gives Haste between turns, allowing Natalie to double her damage output.

The Alt Knife resists Curse, Bad Luck, and Dark. All of these become an immunity at Level 5.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

The Knife is found in The Void, inside a chest accessible after defeating The Glitch.
