The Razor Claw, also known as Rune Claw, is a recurring enemy in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. So far, it has appeared in the third and fourth games as a helper to a boss.

Appearance

The Rune/Razor Claw is a metallic claw made of three free-floating components arranged around an orb of red energy. The orb rests within a cup-like base, with three small spikes on the back and a broad lip. The other two components of the claw are jagged blades, which flank the orb to form a pincer.

The main visual difference between the Rune Claw and the Razor Claw is the design on the base of the claw — the Rune Claw has light grey markings etched into the lip, while the Razor Claw is covered with angular red markings, matching those of its summoner. The Razor Claw's metal also appears to be slightly darker than that of the Rune Claw, and its energy orb is a darker red, without the "spikes" of the Rune Claw's orb.

Overview

Epic Battle Fantasy 3

Rune Claws appear in The Rift, during the final battle with Akron. Akron will summon two Rune Claws at the very beginning of the battle, and will re-summon them when going back to the submerged form, if any were killed.

The Rune Claw has some attacks on its own, all non-elemental, and also can cast spells of the same element as Akron's current form (as indicated by the color of the large crystal on the latter's body). It can also slash players with its blades, sometimes repeatedly, for moderate physical damage, heal and buff its allies, and stab its enemies with an energy sword released from its core. Its strongest attack — a massive laser fired from its core — requires a turn to charge, but deals heavy non-elemental damage to a player, with a high chance of Dispelling them.

Unlike most enemies, the Rune Claw has no elemental weaknesses or resistances. However, it is resistant to several status effects, including Syphon which seals vast majority of its abilities away, and is immune to Poison. They also have the second highest Evade stat in the game (outside of the 60 Medals bonus area with overleveled foes), beaten only by Pyrohydra when the last head alive receives an Evade boost.

Epic Battle Fantasy 4

Razor Claws only appear on Battle Mountain, as helpers for the Praetorian MKII. Compared to their EBF3 appearance, their basic attacks are mostly unchanged, they retain extremely high Evade, they've learned some new spells, but lost all spells dependant on their former master, as well as their inherit heal ability.

As in the previous game, the battle begins with the boss and two Razor Claws, and the boss will re-summon them from time to time if any were killed. However, with magic variety cut, Razor Claw has lost most of its utility function: it is unable to heavily debuff a player, Dispel with its laser attack, heal, or damage multiple players at the same time; its job is to simply deal single-target damage. In exchange, it's now able to give the Brave status to all allies, considerably enchancing their offensive perfomance.

Trivia

Rune5

Rune Claw in EBF3's Bestiary.

  • Due to the fact that Rune Claws automatically buff themselves when summoned, the EBF3 Bestiary entry for the Rune Claw gives it an Evade +50% icon.
  • The shape of the Razor Claw's pincers may be inspired by a part from the Mecha Dress Up Game.
