Matt using Unleash in EBF4

Unleash is a recurring weapon-elemental skill in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is most commonly associated with Matt, as it has been one of his skills since Epic Battle Fantasy 2, though Natalie and Lance also had their own versions of the skill in Epic Battle Fantasy 3.

Description

Upon casting, the user strikes the target with their weapon of choice, emitting differing particle effects upon hitting: Matt's version creates a circular symbol with a cross pattern, Natalie's emits white star particles, and Lance's creates a white silhouette of the Chainsaw Gun.

Unleash deals weapon-elemental damage to the target, and has different effects depending on the game it is in:

  • In EBF2 and EBF3, Unleash has hidden strength, type and effects decided by the weapon the user is wielding and its level, and not based on the weapon's normal statistics. Different weapons' Unleashes have wildly varying strengths and attack types, occasionally have different elements from their original weapon, and are capable of inflicting status effects/debuffs simply not possible using any other weapon-elemental skills.
  • In EBF4 and EBF5, Unleash is only available for Matt, and now merely strengthens the effect of the currently equipped weapon instead of having hidden attributes.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

Even though before the EBF Collection update Swift Brand and Razorback were actually Holy-elemental instead of Wind, their Unleashes had proper element set. (In this game, Unleash technically doesn't depend on weapon's element.)

Since no enemies have higher status effect resistance than 66.(6)% (besides immunity or Sandworm's Stun resistance), infliction chance equal or above 300% is basically a guaranteed applicaton.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Matt, Natalie, and Lance each have their own version of Unleash, which effect depends on currently equipped sword, staff, or gun respectively. Both power of Unleash and strength of its effects depends not on skill's level but on the weapon's level, and thus it is the strongest when used with weapon forged onto level 5.

Effects

  • "Lv" in the following tables denote weapon's level, not user's.
  • Although Heaven's Gate and Seraphim can technically cure any lasting negative status, on practice they can't deal with anything other than Poison and Doom: Stun and Freeze prevent the player from taking a turn and thus using Unleash, Syphon blocks Unleash itself, and Berserk forces using only Normal Attack.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Unleash is only available for Matt, with Natalie's version being transformed into her Normal Attack, and Lance's version disappearing completely. Unleash doubles Matt's sword's elemental degree, resulting in a 100% elemental attack, unlike most other weapon-elemental skills which are only 50% elemental.

Trivia

  • This attack resembles the Unleash feature of the Golden Sun series, in which an artifact weapon can unleash a powerful ability upon using a normal attack. Every weapon in Golden Sun has their own and unique Unleash, which could explain the different results a player could get from different weapons.
