The Swordslinger is a member of the Slinger family of enemies in the Epic Battle Fantasy series. They roam in ancient areas like Kitten Kingdom Ruins or near mechanical factories like the Waste Disposal Plant. It can often be seen together with its shooty counterpart, the Gunslinger.

Appearance

The Swordslinger has a very similar appearance compared to its Gunslinger brethren: A floating robot wearing a long, old, tattered brown coat, with its metallic face partially covered by a wide brimmed cowboy hat. The only difference between the two is the decoration on their hat: While the Gunslinger has a magazine clipped to the back of its hat, the Swordslinger appears to have part of a sabre attached to the front instead.

Overview

In both games it's appeared in, the Swordslinger primarily uses non-elemental physical attacks that can hit a single party member several times (multiple smaller swords), or only once (giant sword, including one that resembles the Fusion Sword). While the attacks' non-elemental property means that elemental resistance will be of not much use, their base power are ultimately not very threatening, and the Swordslinger itself can be easily dispatched using Bomb skills.
