The Giant Squid is one of the bosses encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 3. Fought at the end of Rock Lake, it is implied to be one of the peaceful denizens of the nearby ocean driven to violence by Akron's power. It also reappears in Epic Battle Fantasy 4 as one of the summons available to the player.

Battle logic

The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.

Giant Squid

  • 6th turn and then every 5th turn → Regrow Arms;
    • On Epic difficulty, it is instead used the 3rd turn and then every 2nd turn.
  • Berserked → Bubbles;
    • Since the boss is immune to Berserk, this pattern never comes into play.
  • Syphoned → Ink Shot;
  • ≥48.5% HP → Oil Spit (7/28), Ink Shot (7/28), Flood (2/28), Narwhal (2/28), Iceshard (2/28), Summon Blue Jellies (2/28), Summon Blue Slimes (2/28), Summon Blue Clays (2/28), Summon Spiral Crabs (2/28);
  • <48.5% to ≥28.5% HP → Oil Spit (5/20), Ink Shot (5/20), Narwhal (2/20), Summon Blue Jellies (2/20), Summon Blue Slimes (2/20), Summon Blue Clays (2/20), Summon Spiral Crabs (2/20);
  • <28.5 HP → Bubbles (5/30), Oil Spit (5/30), Ink Shot (5/30), Narwhal (3/30), Summon Blue Jellies (3/30), Summon Blue Slimes (3/30), Summon Blue Clays (3/30), Summon Spiral Crabs (3/30);
  • Death → Summons Spiral Crabs.

All summon abilities spawn in two level 14 exemplars of the foe into slots 1 and 5, if those are free.

To do: List other unused patterns.

Squid Arm

Same chance for all attacks, at any time. Despite being weak to Syphon, the patterns do not change when Syphoned.

Strategy

Equipment

Water resistance is extremely useful against both Squid's and ordinary foes' attacks, and Captain Hat and Pirate Gear gives a lot of it. The Gas Mask is also handy, as it increases resistance to Poison (both element and status) and Stun, which the Squid Arms use frequently.

Matt:

Natalie:

Battle

The Giant Squid fights with Water and Dark elemental attacks, but mainly relies on its tentacles, which act as separate enemies, to deal physical damage and inflict status effects.

Giant Squid is weak to Thunder and Ice and does not resist Poison element neither Poison status, so it's recommended to first get a good stack of Poison on it and then stomp it with what's it weak to. Buffing Matt's attack and then using Cleaver with the Dragon Killer should do high damage.

Try to focus on the Squid because it is the main threat here, and killing its arms will only make them come back.

To do: When is Dispel effect first available? It would be useful against Squid's frequent buffs.

Summon

The Giant Squid returns in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, but it is now one of the summons available to the player. It is found in Lankyroot Jungle. Giant Squid costs 42 SP, has 100 power, and deals 100% Water-elemental magical damage to all foes and wets them afterwards.

Trivia

  • Strangely, the Squid Arms are capable of fighting even after the Giant Squid has been defeated.
  • The Giant Squid returns in the cutscenes after completing Rock Lake, where it crashes the players's beach party by catching the beach ball Natalie threw at Matt. It proceeds to try and drown the boys by pulling them underwater with its tentacles, while using another tentacle to try and remove Natalie's bikini top. It is also seen in the ending cutscene, joining the players, NoLegs, Meow Meow, and the Tundra Mammoth in celebrating the defeat of Akron.
  • It is unclear if the Giant Squid seen in the cutscenes is the previously defeated boss or a new individual of the same species. When the Giant Squid is defeated in battle, it clearly shows "X" eyes (usually symbolizing death), and both the medal for defeating it and Matt's post-battle comments imply that the party cut it up for food.
  • While Giant Squid itself does not directly appear as an enemy in sequent games of the series, it has inspired a whole group of foes: the Squids. They look very similar, albeit coloured differently, and retain some of Giant Squid's attacks. Their tentacles are an integral part of the enemy and do not appear as a separate foe.
