The Thunder Bird, parsed as Thunderbird in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, is a recurring foe in Epic Battle Fantasy series. It appears primarily in areas associated with ruins and electricity, such as Kitten Kingdom Ruins (in EBF3), Waste Disposal Plant and Temple of Godcat (in Epic Battle Fantasy 4). It is a member of the Bird enemy class.

Appearance

The Thunder Bird, as its name suggests, is an avian creature with bright yellow, spiky feathers and a long pink beak. Two yellow strands hang from the back of the birds head. Both of the strands have ends that resemble lightning bolts.

Overview

The Thunderbird is a mid-tier foe who while not the most dangerous foe in the areas it is found can still pose a threat to the party. The Thunderbird typically uses a few non-elemental attacks, along with a Wind and a Thunder elemental skill. In all of its appearances, Thunderbirds can both debuff Accuracy of its targets and Stun them; due to their naturally high Evade stat, this makes them relatively difficult to hit and annoying to fight. While the player could use high-accuracy attacks such as Quick Slash to take care of them, it may be easier to handle groups simply by using several multi-target attacks (such as Shockwave) and refraining from using multi-hit attacks. Note that the EBF4 Thunderbird only uses single-target attacks, while the EBF3 version can use Thunderstorm. Curiously, when playing on easier difficulties in EBF4 Thunderbirds will use Thunder instead of Thunderbolt. This also leaves them without the ability to Stun players.

Defensively speaking, Thunderbirds have very similar resistances from game to game, though there are some noticeable variations. In both games they absorb Thunder and are immune to Earth, as well as being weak to both Poison and Wind. However, in EBF3 they are weak to Water while in EBF4 they are instead weak to Ice as well as Dark. In both games Thunderbirds lack status weaknesses and resistances, though they are vulnerable to Accuracy debuffs in EBF3 while in EBF4 they are vulnerable to Evade debuffs.
