Hyper Beam
"All charged up! This'll be good"
―Lance, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Hyper Beam is a weapon-elemental skill available for Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.


If Lance does not have the Charge status effect, Hyper Beam will cause him to prepare his weapon and gives him the Charge status effect. This Charge will wear off after 3 turns, meaning that Lance will have to Charge again if he waits too long.

If Lance already has a Charge available, he will fire a massive white-colored beam with elemental particles and deals massive weapon-elemental damage to all enemy units, consuming the Charge in the process.

The Accelerator has a chance to randomly given Lance Charged status between turns, making it easier for him to cast Hyper Beam.
