Characters: Epic Battle Fantasy


  • Accidental Pervert
  • Author Avatar: In an interview, the creator stated that Matt is a character based off himself, but doesn't directly represent him. Furthermore, he went on to say that he would love to get rid of him, except he had placed him in too many projects to do so.
  • Bishounen: This pic sums this up.
  • BFS: Most of his weapons. His bomb in Bullet Heaven is the largest sword in the series to date.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Naturally following on from all those swords he has. He even rides a sword in Bullet Heaven. How does that even work?
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Suggested by one of his idle animations in 3 (although that's up for debate). By that point, two of the party members have red hair.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Those swords he carries around? He stole them.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy
  • Pirate: Actually averted; he's a warrior who just dresses as a pirate. You can change his clothing in the third game, too.



  • Big Bad: Of the second game.
  • BFG: The equippable part of his weapon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's constantly this to Natalie.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Or re-friendship.
  • The Lancer: To Matt, sort of...
  • No Swastikas: His iconic uniform originally had swastikas instead of Iron Crosses.
  • Nuke 'em: One of the tank parts in 2 is a nuke. He then gets a nuke for a Limit Break in 3 (and it's expected to use this on low level enemies close to maximum level for one of the damage medals).
  • Putting on the Reich: His iconic outfit in the second game that can be reacquired late in the third game.
  • Token (ex?)Evil Teammate.
  • Tank Goodness: The Valkyrie tank he has in 2 and 3.
  • Wave Motion Gun: His Smart Bomb attack in Bullet Heaven.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He was supposedly this in the second game, claiming to want to save the world by destroying it, or something similar. The rest of the party accept this.
    • To clarify, the partial destruction of the world due to events in the first game left everyone in chaos. Lance wanted to bring peace and order by basically eliminating all traces of a previous world government, taking over, and getting rid of any possible competition or obstacles via force if necessary. He is extremely extremist, but ultimately well-intentioned. The fact that he was so Easily Forgiven may have been a bit of a parody of Defeat Means Friendship. It certainly seemed like one.
    • This is symbolized by the fact that the Swastika on his arm is actually inverted, turning it into an oriental good-luck symbol.




The Antagonist of Epic Battle Fantasy 4, Godcat

  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: After you beat her, she travels into outer-space with her cat followers to create a perfect world for cats, free of her past mistakes.
  • Big Bad: Of 4, and arguably of Bullet Heaven, too. Quite possibly of the entire series as well, considering she created previous Big Bad Akron to be her Dragon.
  • Cats Are Mean
  • Dark Is Evil AND Light Is Not Good
  • Dual Boss: You eventually fight both of her forms SIMULTANEOUSLY during the final battle.
  • Final Boss
  • Flunky Boss
  • Eldritch Abomination: Definitely toned down a few levels from Akron, but it's still very much there. Hell, that she MADE Akron is proof enough of this trope.
  • Final Boss Preview: Both the light and dark aspects of (the mindless and not-yet fully revived) Godcat will separately ambush you in 4. It's impossible to kill her during this encounter, as her stats are insanely high and she avoids all of your attacks. You can only stick it out for a little bit as she kills off your party members, and revive whoever drops, because if you survive long enough she'll depart and summon two ice crystal enemies which can be killed.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: If it wasn't made apparent that the party has no hope in hell of actually killing Godcat, let's look at a snippet of her scan values for Normal difficulty: both her Creator and Destructor forms have well over 570k HP when fought separately, and total a little over 760k HP total when fought together, meaning you have to do over 1.33 million HP worth of damage in all to beat her. An incredible feat in and of itself. But remember: this is for their alternate forms. The HP of a single Godcat aspect in its light form? 5.3 MILLION. Again, this is for one aspect of Godcat (they both have the same HP), and again, this is on Normal. Yeah, killing her off for good is not happening.
  • God Is Evil/God and Satan Are Both Jerks: As if the name wasn't enough to tip the player off, she's the creator of the EBF world.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Humanity as a whole. They were made to be an opposing force for her cats to compete against and subsequently conquer, developing the necessary traits of strength, wisdom and courage to run their own world. Godcat was less than pleased when humanity rose to power instead.
  • Jerkass Gods
  • Marathon Boss: Ohhhhhhhh yeah. The final battle with her consists of no less than four forms and SIX phases. During the sixth phase you even have to fight BOTH of their larger forms AT THE SAME TIME.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: After learning of the cats becoming allies of man, she decided to kill off all her cat creations...or at least try to. The ones that managed to survive had their arms and legs taken. (Or so the legend goes) Her main goal after being revived is to destroy humanity.
    • Her boss banter reveals that she created humanity as a slave race to serve her chosen creations, the cats. According to Godcat, cats eventually became dependent on their human slaves, and humanity grew stronger than catkind; she destroyed cat civilization and took their limbs because she was "disappointed" in her children. After being summoned at the end of the game she plans on destroying humanity, believing them to be a mistake.
  • Physical God: Yup.
  • Restored My Faith In Humanity: After the party's demonstration of their strength and will to live in the final battle, she reasons that humanity had earned its place in the world she made.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: She spends most of 4 dead, waiting to be revived.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • We Will Meet Again: Subverted since the heroes are far from being capable of killing her. She lets them go, being impressed by their tenacity and realizing that she has not been a good mother to her cats.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: Has both a light and dark form, both capable of existing in the same place at the same time.
