The Warp Zone is a fast-travel hub in the Epic Battle Fantasy series, presented as a pocket dimension. It allows the player to instantly teleport to any checkpoint on the world map you have reached. There is usually one checkpoint per area, appearing as crystals in EBF3, and friendly Slime Cats starting in EBF4, each stylized like the area it's from. To teleport, simply walk up to and interact with the object.
Epic Battle Fantasy 3
In EBF3, crystals are typically found right before the boss of the area, with an exception to Vegetable Forest's crystal, which can be accessed right after defeating the boss. There are a total of six crystals, one for each area minus the road to the final boss. Note that each crystal has to be used at least once to activate it in the Warp Zone, otherwise it cannot be warped to.
Crystal Locations (in order of discovery)
- The Town — Found under a tree at the entrance of Vegetable Forest. Yellow and star-shaped.
- Vegetable Forest — Found at the exit of the forest, accessible after defeating Jack. Green and shaped like a hexagonal diamond (or a Green Rupee from The Legend of Zelda).
- Rock Lake — Found on the same island as Krystal and her friend, shortly before fighting the Giant Squid; guarded by foes. Blue and shaped like a drop of water.
- Glacier Valley — Found just before the bridge guarded by the Tundra Mammoth. White and shaped like a cross/ice crystal.
- Kitten Kingdom Ruins — Found just before fighting the Protector. Brown and irregularly shaped, resembling a shinier version of the surrounding rocks.
- Volcano Peak — Found beside the canyon inhabited by the Pyrohydra. Red with orange accents, shaped like a flame.
Epic Battle Fantasy 4
In EBF4, Slime Cats are typically found halfway through an area. There are a total of ten Slime Cats in the free version of the game and twelve Slime Cats in the Steam version and the updated Premium Pack. Using one for the first time gives players the Slime Cat medal, while finding all ten/twelve (depending on whether you have Premium content or not) unlocks the Slime Cat King medal. Interacting with each one is no longer required to activate them in the Warp Zone — simply finding them is enough.

- Shroom Cat (Ashwood Forest) — Above the northern entrance to the Lava Cave. Orange, with brown stripes and mushrooms on its head.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5
- "W-WOAH!! Did that Slime Cat bring me here? Or did I die and go to heaven? That might be more likely..."
- ―Matt visits the Warp Zone for the first time, EBF5
There are twelve Slime Cats in total. The Slime Cat that leads to the Temple of Trials is exclusive to the deluxe Steam version, and can only be accessed when the four optional dungeons' bosses are defeated. The Slime Cat that leads to The Great Sea was introduced in the v2 update, and thus is also exclusive to the Steam version.
Seasonal NPCs can be found here that only appear during their corresponding season/Festival.

- In EBF4, the Molten Cat is the only Slime Cat which appears in the Warp Zone before finding its "real-world" equivalent. The same is true of the Angel Cat in EBF5.
- So far, the Knight Cat is the only Slime Cat to be holding something; additionally, it is the only one with a unique tail.
- It is unclear how it is holding the sword, as none of Slime Cats appear to have any type of hands or paws.
- The music theme used for the EBF4 Warp Zone, Estavius (Piano), is shared with the main menu and the Lost Ruins.
