Vines is an advanced Poison-elemental skill available primarily for foes in Epic Battle Fantasy 1 and 3, for Anna in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, and for Matt, Anna and NoLegs in Epic Battle Fantasy 5. It is one of the few skills whose type varies between games.
In EBF4 and EBF5, it is the upgraded version of Ivy.
In EBF5, Vines as well as its pre upgraded form, Ivy, can see great use on NoLegs. Matt and Anna already have Bio attacks (Overgrowth and Razor Leaf respectively), while NoLegs has none. While weaker than the others, Vines is reasonably strong and can fill the niche of a Bio skill for NoLegs.
