"Hmm, that squid came out of a pool of sludge. To eat, or not to eat...?"
―Matt meets Toxic Squid, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Toxic Squid is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It is found in the Waste Disposal Plant and the Lankyroot Jungle.


The Toxic Squid is a huge squid with a dull purple tint to its skin and a bulbous, rotund head with light grey markings resembling a distorted skull. It has large green eyes flanking its tubular mouth, and two long tentacles it uses as arms.


The Toxic Squid is quite bulky, as it has high health and many resistances, and on Hard/Epic enters the battle with many stacks of Poison which it absorbs, effectively regenerating each turn. However, Toxic Squid also has significant weaknesses to several elements and Instant Death, which can be abused (e.g. via the Frost Wraith summon) to dispatch it in a far easier manner.

The Toxic Squid has several strong physical attacks, and is also capable of inflicting Poison, Curse and debuffing Accuracy. However, all of its damaging attacks are single-target, so it should be easy enough to defend against. It still has a strong Attack stat and should not be taken lightly.
