The Lightning Sprite is a foe in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It appears primarily in Waste Disposal Plant and Temple of Godcat. It is a member of the Sprite enemy class.


Lightning Sprite has a simple base for its body: a round head and half oval body with short arms. It has yellow jagged edges around its head and "skirt", the latter of which exposes a black lower body, and it has a pair of horns resembling lightning bolts.


True to its name, the Lightning Sprite uses Thunder-based spells, but it can also buff it's Magic Attack and give itself Regen status. Like many enemies in the Waste Disposal Plant, it can use a turn to charge up for a devastating attack. Multiple of its attacks have a chance to Stun their targets, making it somewhat more dangerous than other variants of Sprites.
