"Distorts the space and time around it to avoid attacks. Destroys everything."
―Bestiary, Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Cosmic Monolith is the final monolith to encounter in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, and is also a optional mini boss on Battle Mountain in the Epic Battle Fantasy 4 premium pack. It is also a summon in the 4th game.

Appearance

The Cosmic Monolith is in the shape of a rectangular prism with very round holes in the front of it. It is of a black coloring and has marking going across the front, top, and sides, which glow red every few seconds. When destroyed, Cosmic Monolith gets sliced apart, revealing it is made of dark matter.

Overview

Monoliths take the role of offensive spell-casters, with Cosmic Monolith itself being biased towards the Dark element, fitting its color theme. Cosmic Monolith is notable for its high Magic Attack and very high Evade, requiring the players to buff own accuracy or/and debuff Monolith's evade in order to have adequate chances to hit it. Its array of abilities includes mostly damage-oriented Dark magic such as Pulsar, often with a chance to slightly debuff or Dispel the targets.

Doomsday EBF3

Doomsday, as seen in Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Cosmic Monolith is most known for its Doomsday spell, that deals immense Dark-elemental damage in a fiery energy explosion, hurting both players and foes; its raw damage far exceeds players' usual health, typically resulting in an instant party wipe unless counter-measures were taken, while the Monolith itself absorbs it and therefore heals from it. Even a 70% Magic Defence buff alone doesn't guarantee survival, forcing the player to Defend or/and look for equipment that gives resistance to Dark.

Alternatively, one can try Syphoning the thing — the common weak point of Monoliths works with Cosmic Monolith as well, rendering it completely useless for a lengthy while, giving time to attack and possibly destroy it before it becomes operational again. However, considering Monoliths' resistance to Syphon, it's more of a gamble than a reliable tactic.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 3, Doomsday is preceded by Flare on the same turn, which lowers players' accuracy, making them miss even more often. The Monolith uses this combo attack on its very first turn and then each third turn, most likely taking unawares down at turn one. However, since all of Cosmic Monolith's spells besides the weak Flare are fully Dark-elemental, getting 100% Dark resistance would make them all do zero damage, effectively ruining Monolith's offense, though this won't protect from debuffs and Dispel.

Cosmic Monolith sliced

Sliced apart, with its parts falling down.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 4, Cosmic Monolith gets its weaknesses changed from Thunder and Bomb to Thunder and Water, loses Flare and Antimatter's Dispel function, and Doomsday is no longer a surprise: although the Monolith still uses it each third turn, it no longer begins the battle with it, and now gains the Charge status a turn before it would be used, giving the player an idea of something big and evil incoming; the Doomsday itself now targets only players instead of everyone, no longer healing the caster. In this game Cosmic Monolith gains a new attack, where it teleports itself above a player and falls onto them, slamming them for extreme physical non-elemental damage. Additionally, some of its spells, including Doomsday, were changed from 100% element degree to 75%, meaning that 100% Dark resistance is no longer enough to completely nullify their damage.

Other than that, Cosmic Monolith and his role on the battlefield remain unchanged, and Dark resistance is still almost mandatory to survive it on higher difficulties. Its summon version, being the strongest summon in the game, does exactly what one would expect — nukes all foes with Doomsday; using this summon for the first time awards the Space Invaders medal.

Trivia

  • In Epic Battle Fantasy 3, the Doomsday spell has a status effect chance set for it, with this chance getting increased from 10% to 40% on Epic difficulty. However, Doomsday does not have any status effects attached to it, so the status effect chance never comes into play.
