The Leaf Turtle, also known as Leaf Eater, is a nature-themed foe that first appeared in Epic Battle Fantasy 3, as mid-level enemies in Vegetable Forest. They later returned in Epic Battle Fantasy 4, mainly appearing in Lankyroot Jungle. It's one of the four members of the Turtles enemy class.

Appearance

The Leaf Eater is a large green turtle with a single horn on its head. Its shell is an earthy brown, with a variety of vegetation growing from it. Smaller clusters of leaves are present on its head and tail.

Overview

In EBF3, the Leaf Eater is the first of the Turtles encountered by the party, and possess a few skills capable of dealing moderate earth and poison damage. The Leaf Eater becomes a much more dangerous threat at Epic difficulty, as its Razor Leaf's significantly increased chance to inflict poison can quickly spell doom for the party. Purchasing a few Garlics is recommended, as Purify is not available at the moment the Leaf Eater is fought.

In EBF4, the Leaf Turtle is encountered significantly later into the game, with its early-game role being replaced by the Lava Turtle. As with all other Turtles, the Leaf Turtle has gained a "shell quake" ability that boost its stats and gives it defend; compared to the other Turtles', the Leaf Turtle's version is more defensive-oriented, buffing both Defence and Magic Defence but does not improve any of its offensive stats.

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

  • Berserked → Horn Stab;
  • Syphoned → Horn Stab (1/2), Ground Pound (1/2);
  • <28.5% HP or/and Doomed → Razor Leaf;
  • Otherwise → Horn Stab (1/4), Ground Pound (1/4), Razor Leaf* (2/4).

The Shell Smash attack, although it exists, is never used; what could activate it triggers Razor Leaf instead, giving extra usage chance for the strongest attack.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

  • Syphoned → Horn Stab (1/3), Ground Pound (1/3), Shell Smash (1/3);
  • Berserked → Ground Pound;
  • Otherwise → Horn Stab (1/4), Ground Pound (1/4), Shell Smash (1/4), Razor Leaf (1/4).
