"Don't worry, it's solar powered! Minimal radiation and damage to the environment, but still lethal. I'm quite proud of that!"

The Ion Cannon is a recurring Limit Break appearing in Epic Battle Fantasy series. It was introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 as one of Natalie's summons, became one of Lance's Limit Breaks in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, and a shared Limit Break among Matt and Lance in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.


The cannon is mounted on an artificial satellite orbiting around the planet, and it can be remotely called to strike the battlefield at any time. It was created by Lance as part of his plans to take over the world.

The animation consists of the camera zooming out so the player can see the whole planet. A giant cannon appears, along with four batteries. The batteries then charge the cannon with red (EBF2&3) or yellow (EBF4) bolts of energy. Once the weapon is successfully powered up, the batteries are retracted and the cannon deploys before firing down a giant beam of the same colour, destroying the ground of the battlefield in the process.

Epic Battle Fantasy 2

The Ion Cannon is obtained after defeating the Guardian boss. It costs 200 MP and deals massive non-elemental damage to all enemies, with some recoil damage to the players. The "Max Radiation" medal is awarded for using Ion Cannon for the first time.

One Skill Bonus is available to improve the Ion Cannon:

  • Ions! - Boosts Orbital Ion Cannon's damage by 30%

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Named simply Ion, it is one of Lance's Limit Breaks. Ion no longer damages the user's team, and now debuffs foes' Attack stat.

Ion Cannon returns as a Special Limit Break available to Lance and Matt. It now deals 75% Thunder-elemental instead of non-elemental damage, and may Stun targets instead of reducing Attack. To reflect the element change, the laser and the batteries are coloured yellow.

The Praetorian and Dark Lance can also cast Ion Cannon. Dark Lance uses Ion Cannon as a Limit Break like the players, while the Praetorian telegraphs its use by gaining the Charged status.
