"A smelly plant monster which uses a variety of poison attacks, and can heal itself. Summons flowers for support."
―Bestiary, Epic Battle Fantasy 4

The Rafflesia is the fourth boss encountered in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It is in control of the aggressive flowers infesting the Lankyroot Jungle. Before attacking it, the heroes note that destroying it will probably make the jungle a lot safer.

Appearance

The Rafflesia's design is based on a real giant and pestilent tropical flower of the same name. It is a green plant monster with a Rafflesia flower on its head.

Battle

Rafflesia and its flowers are weak to Fire damage (Except for the Froses), Wind damage and Ice damage. Gear-wise, pack some poison resistance since the monster uses quite some poison attacks. The Red Dragon Summon is very useful, same goes for Lance's Nuke Limit Break. The Frost Wraith Summon from the graveyard can also dish out insane damage, especially if Rafflesia is Wet from the rain created by Froses.

Rafflesia summons Flowers. As the battle goes on, it starts summoning more of them. Heasies must necessarily be destroyed or otherwise incapacitated (such as via Syphon). Frozes and Stunflowers are also troublesome, and should ideally be incapacitated - the former can reduce fire damage to the boss, the latter can stun.

Rafflesia attacks by slashing and swiping with its leaves. It can also summon sharp-tipped vines to strike one player or the whole party and fire a storm of petals. It can also burp at the player characters, unleashing fetid exhalations that can poison players, dramatically debuff their stats or cause other status effects like Stagger. In addition, it can charge itself with sunlight, restoring some health.

There is an alternate strategy to face Rafflesia; equip your party with ice, poison and freeze resistance equipment. During the battle, kill all the flowers but leave Froses behind. If a new flower is summoned, kill it. If it is a Frose, leave it behind. This allows the player to take advantage of Froses, which will wet the battlefield. With ice resistance, the damage from a Frose's ice attack would be reduced. Not to mention that it would prevent Rafflesia from summoning other Flowers.
