The Shuriken is a recurring item in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It is a metal throwing star that can be used to damage enemies in battle.
In Epic Battle Fantasy 2, it can be bought from the shops.
Epic Battle Fantasy 3 gave the Shuriken another use as a crafting item, mainly being used for the Ninja Gear and Ninja Hood.
The Shuriken returns as a miscellaneous item in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. When used, it is thrown at the foe and damages the foe with wind-elemental damage. Damage is based on the user's Attack, has roughly 80 Power, and has been seen to go up to 20% higher or lower. The Ninja Gear doubles the power (more than doubling the damage) of Shurikens when equipped.
