Natalie eating a hamburger

Food are a category of items present in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4. Various types of food are used to replenish characters' health and mana, buff their statistics and provide some other miscellaneous bonuses during battle, or even increase their stats permanently.

Food are essentially a replacement for well-known generic "potions" commonly present in video games (especially RPGs), including first two parts of the series. Following Epic Battle Fantasy's light-hearted nature, food are mostly fruits, sweets, cakes, fast-foods, drinks, and few relatively humorous items.

Other than found in chests, and sometimes dropped by enemies, food may be bought (and sold) in the Old Brick Inn, located in The Town.

In this game, characters will express their reaction to food eaten, different for each player. A heart signalizes they like the item, a skull is the opposite, and no expression means neutral reaction. It's only for visuals and has no impact on item's effects.

Permanent stat boosters

A special type of food that permanently increases character's statistics by a fixed amount when eaten. It is considerably more rare than normal food as it can only be found in chests or received via quests and can't be bought in a shop.

  • Prior the Battle Mountain update Crisps and Chips effects were healing all living party members for 500 HP and 50 MP, and for 3000 HP and 300 MP respectively. Not updated uploads of the game (includes Newgrounds and Armor Games) will still have those effects.

Permanent stat boosters

A special type of food that permanently increases character's statistics when eaten. Unlike the previous game, it is available in a shop - the special Rare Shop located in the Whitefall Town. However, unlike normal shop, the prices in the rare shop double each time another item of the same kind is bought, making buying consecutive items quite expensive. Also the items were changed to provide a percentage-based bonus instead of a fixed value.

Trivia

  • The Beer can's appearance, with a red T letter on a yellow background, is based on a common Scottish Alcoholic beverage, Tennent's Lager.
  • One of EBF3's hidden medals, "Fatty", is awarded for using a Hamburger in battle for the first time.
  • In EBF3's opening sequence Natalie's profile states that she dislikes hamburgers - and during the game whenever Natalie eats a hamburger she makes a skull and crossbones emote (the healing is unaffected).
