Air Strike, also known as Airstrike is a Bomb-elemental skill in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It summons randomly chosen missiles and bombs to strike foes from above. Depending on the type of projectiles dropped, the damage output and number of enemies targeted varies.


Air Strike currently appeared in all games of the main series. In Epic Battle Fantasy 1 and 2 as one of Matt's skills and in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4 as one of Lance's skills instead. It is Lance's primary way of dealing magical Bomb elemental damage and is quite often useful throughout the entire game. Instead of having a set power, this explosive skill brings death from above by dropping randomly chosen projectile onto the enemies. There are three possible outcomes:

  • A huge bomb with a peace sign lands in front of an enemy dealing massive damage to a single foe.
  • Three small missiles lands in a line and explode in sequence dealing moderate damage to all foes, hits 3 times.
  • A massive black missile with red-glowing markings lands on the enemy wave and explodes, leaving a small black void behind dealing high damage to all foes.


Epic Battle Fantasy

Air Strike is one of the skills under Matt's "Special" category. It costs 50 MP to use and is not affected by any of the player's attack stat changes, but still affected by target's Magic Defence buff. Only two "basic" types of bombs are available in this game.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

Air Strike is now affected by user's base Magic Attack and sword's Magic Attack bonus, but not by Magic Attack buffs, e.g. Magic Potion will not affect the damage. Additionally, a third type of bomb can be unlocked through a Skill Bonus, capable of hitting entire wave of foes for massive damage and debuffing their Defence by 30%. Unlike other skills, Air Strike's power is not shown on the menu; the small missiles' power is 90 in total, while the normal bomb's and black missile's are 140 and 150, respectively.

Two Skill Bonuses are available to improve Air Strike:

  • Secret Weapon - Adds a new type of bomb for Air Strike.
  • Aerial Support - Air Strike activates randomly between turns.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Airstrike is a skill in Lance's "Backup" category. Only the two usual variants are available at the start, requiring the skill to be upgraded to level 3 in order to unlock the black missile as a possible bomb type. The third variant is still the strongest, hitting the foes at 130% of skill's power.
