"A giant rock? Well, that's not very threatening at all. Is it gonna fall over on us or something?"
―Matt, Epic Battle Fantasy 3

The Viking Monolith is a foe that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4, mostly around cold areas such as Glacier Valley and Crystal Caverns. It is a member of the monolith enemy class, and is the first Monolith encountered in both games.

Appearance

It looks like a large gray rock, with runes and a carving of a sword on the front, along with various other carvings.

Overview

Similarly to other fellow Monoliths, Viking Monolith is a rather threatening foe, with a bunch of powerful attacks, high amount of HP, and numerous resistances but only few weaknesses.

In EBF3, like all Monoliths, Viking Monolith will always use its powerful laser at the beginning of each encounter and every three turns. Due to this, it can easily catch players off guard, especially beginners. The laser doesn't deal tremendous damage, but has a high chance to inflict Freeze on all players, potentially ending the game right there. It can be countered with Ice absorption, Freeze resistance/immunity or Regen. Viking Monolith also can buff itself and its allies, causing them to be even more of a threat, or cast a few Ice-elemental spells. Like all EBF3 Monoliths, Viking Monolith resists both Syphon and Stun, but is not immune to them. If the player manages to land either of two, the Viking Monolith will be temporarily shut down. Try and destroy it before the status effect ends.

In EBF4, Viking Monolith is still strong and capable of firing the laser. However, the foe now must visibly charge in order to unleash the laser, making it easier to prepare for. Although Monoliths are now immune to Stun, Syphon still takes them out of the game for a few turns.
