The Thunder Elemental is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears mostly in Waste Disposal Plant. It is a member of the Elemental enemy class.


The Thunder Elemental is a black, reptilian creature with yellow eyes that wears golden "armor" with a massive spiky protusion on the side of it. It has an arm cannon on its left hand and has a yellow energy sword in the place of its right hand. Like other elementals, the Thunder Elemental floats over the ground, and in either case lacks legs - it instead has a weird shape possibly meant to be a tail.


Like the other Elementals, the Thunder Elemental is a high-class foe which packs sizable elemental might. Despite the description, the Thunder Elemental only uses highly elemental Thunder attacks. Its repertoire is fairly straight forward, specializing in heavy elemental damage though it can also inflict Dispel and Stagger. Although the Thunder Elemental only has a single area-of-effect attack, its high-powered skills can give it the ability to tear through weaker players. On harder difficulties, the Thunder Elemental starts the battle with Charge, letting it use Thunder Blast right away.

The Thunder Elemental absorbs Thunder, and resists both Fire and Bomb. It does have a couple weaknesses of note; while Earth attacks such as Lumber work best, Ice and Water skills such as Iceshard and Flood respectively can dish out some serious damage.

It is worth noting that along with other Elementals, Thunder Elementals can drop Cake — consumable items that permanently boost Magic Attack by 2%. However, as this is only an 1% chance, it is generally not worth the grinding to get Cake.
