Genesis 2
"I have learnt the ultimate holy magic! It's great for offence AND defence. :D"
―Natalie, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Genesis is a Holy-elemental Limit Break available for Natalie in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4.

Description

First, a stylized white cross with wings appears in the middle of the battlefield. Next the ground shatters and screen whites out until a view of the entire planet can be seen. Lastly, a huge winged crucifix appears in a blast of motes, feathers, and shock waves, blasting the surface of the planet with its base. The imagery is effectively an inverted Doomsday (or perhaps Supernova would be more accurate).

Genesis deals high Holy-elemental damage to all enemies, which is a rare example of an area-of-effect Holy spell accessible to players, yet the spell is used primarily for its utility function — providing Auto-Revive to the living players (which will automatically revive them with all stat buffs and status effects still active if they die in subsequent turns) and reviving the dead ones, which is very helpful against stronger enemies and bosses.

In EBF4, Diamond Golem can also use Genesis; its variant grants the foes the Defend status effect instead of Auto-Revive.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Using Genesis for the first time will award the player with the Genesis medal.

Trivia

  • In EBF3, Natalie quotes a line from The Animatrix when casting Genesis for the first time: "May the sins of man and machine be forgiven."
  • The name and animation of this Limit Break are a reference to Genesis, the first book in the Old Testament of the Bible. It may also reference Neon Genesis Evangelion, a popular anime by Hideyaki Anno.
  • Natalie uses a shortened version of Genesis as her Bomb attack in Bullet Heaven.
  • Genesis would appear to either be striking the United Kingdom, where Matt Roszak is from, or alternatively somewhere in the vicinity of Greenland or Iceland.
