The Wind Sprite is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 and 5, and a summon in the latter. It typically appears in elevated, windy areas, such as the upper levels of the Temple of Godcat (EBF4) and the Forgotten Ruins (EBF5).

Appearance

The Wind Sprite is a small, child-like humanoid made of pale lavender clouds. Its "hair" is formed of slightly darker purple clouds arranged into a cluster of spirals, with several twig-like branches of golden material sticking out between them. Its arms are short and tipped with small projections resembling a ruffled sleeve or vestigial fingers.

In EBF4, the Wind Sprite has blank white eyes and a mouth that only becomes visible in certain animations. In EBF5, its eyes are dark purple and its mouth is visible at all times. It also gained small purple "blush spots" on its cheeks and a more saturated color scheme overall.

Overview

The Wind Sprite has relatively low stats and damage output, but its attacks can inflict annoying effects like Dispel and Magic Defence debuffs. As its name suggests, it mainly uses Wind attacks; on the other hand, it's consistently weak to Bio, Dark, and the Poison status. It also has very few resistances aside from a Wind absorption, so most tactics are effective against it; Syphon and Berserk can render it nigh-helpless by restricting it to a weak, effect-less physical attack.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Wind Sprite can headbutt a player for non-elemental physical damage, but it much prefers to use magical attacks instead. Its single-target spells can inflict Syphon and modest debuffs to Magic Attack and Magic Defence as side effects, while its multi-target option has a fair chance of Dispel in addition to minor damage. While Wind resistance can soften the blows of its air rings and Whirlwind, their relatively low damage means that guarding against the Dispel and debuffs is usually more important.

The Wind Sprite absorbs Wind and is immune to Earth while being vulnerable to Poison and Dark. The former weakness is accentuated by its susceptibility to the Poison ailment; on the other hand, a significant Syphon resistance can make sealing its skills slightly more difficult. If "More Foe Resistance" is active, it loses its Dark weakness and gains resistance to Ice, Thunder, Water, Stun, Dispel, and Weaken.

Epic Battle Fantasy 5

Despite higher-than-normal offensive stats, the Wind Sprite's mostly elemental damage output isn't particularly threatening; instead, it specializes in disrupting and debuffing the party. It can hit a single player with Whirlwind to inflict modest magical Wind damage while possibly making them Light and debuffing their Magic Defence; this combination allows it to greatly amplify the damage of subsequent Wind attacks, including its own. It also has a multi-target attack with very low power but a substantial chance of applying Confuse; this becomes especially worrisome on higher difficulty levels, where the infliction chance and status duration increase. The Wind Sprite also has the ability to briefly summon Stormy weather, potentially debuffing the entire party at once; however, the chance is mediocre and it can just as easily affect the foes as well as the party.

While building resistance to the Wind Sprite's ailments isn't difficult, an easier solution is to hit it with Syphon or Berserk; both effects will prevent it from using anything other than its basic headbutt attack. Status effects can also give it plenty of grief, as it has no resistance to them unless "More Foe Resistance" is enabled.

The Wind Sprite is weak to Bio, Dark, and especially Earth, but it absorbs Wind and resists Thunder, Water, and Ice. It is also susceptible to Poison and Virus, especially given its Bio weakness. Enabling "More Foe Resistance" lessens its Earth weakness and gives it resistance to Bio (but not Poison or Virus), Dark, Stun, Syphon, Doom, and Instant Death.

Summon

In EBF5, the Wind Sprite can be captured and used as a summon. It changes the weather to Stormy for five turns, helping to counteract enemy buffs or problematic weather conditions. However, make sure that the party has some Dispel resistance/immunity to prevent the weather from hampering them in turn.
