Jack is the first boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and a miniboss found in Epic Battle Fantasy 4.

Appearance

In contrast to most nature-themed and animal-based denizens of Vegetable Forest (in Epic Battle Fantasy 3) and Lankyroot Jungle (in Epic Battle Fantasy 4), Jack is a large robot with a pumpkin-like orange outer shell. Notable features include large, powerful arms, four small legs, a single orange-red eye that serves as its only facial feature, a tiny gold crown, and a number of concealed weapons that can emerge from the "face" on its body.

Overview

In Epic Battle Fantasy 3, being the first boss, Jack isn't much powerful. As a mechanical creature, Jack is vulnerable to Bomb and Thunder, additionally Earth is also one of its weaknesses. It mostly uses strong physical attacks, with many of them harming all players at once, and frequently summons reinforcements in form of various weak foes, such as Green Bush.

In Epic Battle Fantasy 4, Jack is found in Lankyroot Jungle, as a miniboss. His color has brightened, and he lacks a crown. It is also no longer weak to Earth, but is now weak to Water. Jack's behaviour didn't get much of a change: it's the same physical attacks and frequent summoning, sometimes with slightly modified properties, such as increased power of most of attacks and more frequent summoning. Jack also has learned Eruption.

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.

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

  • The 6th turn and then every 5th turn → Reinforcements;
  • Syphon → Punch (1/3), Triple Punch (1/3), Crush (1/3);
  • ≥28.5% HP → Triple Punch (1/4), Crush (1/4), Machine Gun (1/4), Flamethrower (1/4);
  • <28.5% HP → Punch (1/5), Triple Punch (1/5), Crush (1/5), Machine Gun (1/5), Flamethrower (1/5).

There's another pattern present for Jack:

  • Crush (1/3), Machine Gun (1/3), Flamethrower (1/3)

Sharing the problem with certain other EBF3 foes, it is never used due to some oddities in how it was programmed.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • The 4th turn and then every 3rd turn → Reinforcements;
  • Berserk or/and Syphon → Triple Punch;
  • ≥50% HP → Punch (1/5), Crush (1/5), Machine Gun (1/5), Flamethrower (1/5), Eruption (1/5);
  • <50% HP → Triple Punch (1/5), Crush (1/5), Machine Gun (1/5), Flamethrower (1/5), Eruption (1/5).

Strategy

Equipment

Naturally, prioritizing weapons that use the elements Jack is weak to (Thunder, Bomb, Earth/Water) is a good idea.

Battle

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

First, kill Jack's allies — he'll summon more later on, but right now this will lower the amount of damage you'd take per turn. Limit Breaks work well for that task. Then you can start go offensive on the boss itself. Tremor (or better yet, Quake) combined with the Gaia Axe can deal good damage; Double Shot combined with the Heavy Claw has good damage output as well, and can lower Jack's defence, which will allow you to dish out more damage with sequent physical attacks.

Natalie's role in this battle is mostly to aid party members with Heal or/and Healmore, and cast Thunder on Jack if she gets a free turn. If Kyun is available, she should save it for when Matt and Lance are ready to use powerful attacks of their own (preferably their Limit Breaks), or when the entire party is on the verge of being overwhelmed by the enemies.

Trivia

  • As mentioned in Concept Art section of Epic Battle Fantasy 3 Gallery, the design for Jack came from a DeviantArt member named Xyionan, who called his design "King Pumpkinbot".
  • Jack's name and appearance are a pun on "jack-o-lantern".
