Barrier
"Barrier is gonna be very useful later on, when bosses become strong enough to knock us out in one hit!"
―Whoever uses the skill, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Barrier is a recurring skill in the Epic Battle Fantasy series.

Description

Barrier creates a shield of translucent red hexagons (blue in the first game) in front of the party, raising their Magic Defence for a while. This gives the party a boost in Magic Defence, which will decrease by 5% each turn.

Epic Battle Fantasy

Barrier is part of Natalie's WMagic skill set. It boosts the party's Magic Defence to +65% (countrary to its description), and costs 20 mana to use.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

Barrier raises the party's Magic Defence to +65% (countrary to its description for once again) and costs 30 mana to use. It also has a new animation.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Once again, Barrier is one of Natalie's WMagic skills. However, in accordance with the new RPG mechanics, it must be unlocked, learned, and upgraded with AP.

Barrier is now a Special Skill that either Natalie or Lance can learn. The animation also receives a slight change: The hexagons will always appear and disappear in a set order, instead of randomly.
