Warp Zone is a quick travel center in Epic Battle Fantasy 3 and 4, present as a pocket dimension. It allows to instantly teleport to any checkpoints on the world map you have reached. There usually is one checkpoint per area, appearing as crystals in EBF3, or friendly Slime Cats in EBF4, all stylized as the area it's from. To teleport, simply walk up to and interact with the object.
In EBF3, crystals are typically found right before the boss of the area, with an exception to Vegetable Forest's crystal, which can be accessed right after defeating the boss. There are a total of six crystals, one for each area minus the road to the final boss. Note that each crystal has to be used at least once to activate it in the Warp Zone, else it cannot be warped to.
In EBF4, Slime Cats are typically found halfway through the area. There are a total of ten Slime Cats in the free version of the game and twelve Slime Cats in the Steam version and the updated Premium Pack. Using one for the first time gives players the Slime Cat medal, while finding all ten/twelve (depending on whether you have Premium content) unlocks the Slime Cat King medal. Interacting with each one is no longer required to activate them in the Warp Zone — simply finding them is enough.

- The Molten Cat is the only Slime Cat which appears in the Warp Zone before finding its "real-world" equivalent.
- The Knight Cat is the only Slime Cat to be holding something; additionally, it is the only one with a unique tail.
- It is unclear how is it holding its sword, as none of Slime Cats appear to have any type of hands or paws.
- The music theme used for EBF4 Warp Zone, Estavius (Piano), is shared with main menu and the Lost Ruins.
