Swift Slash

Swift Slash (also known as Wind Slash in EBF1 and 3, and as Windslash in EBF2) is a multi-target skill available for Matt throughout the Epic Battle Fantasy series. It makes him dash through enemy wave damaging all foes at the same time.

Description

Swift Slash currently appeared in all games of the main series, always as one of Matt's skills. It is one of very few skills that target entire enemy wave in his otherwise single-target focused moveset, making it a good (if not the only) option to deal with groups of weaker foes or when one wants to spread damage among enemies. Swift Slash does not have a fixed element and instead uses an element of Matt's currently equipped sword. It may also activate weapon's special effects on foes hit, except of those based around casting additional spells on-hit.

Dark Matt (EBF4) can also use Swift Slash, and some enemies have attacks with similar animations, such as Blue Clay (EBF3&4) and Praetorian MKII (EBF4).
