    Red Mage Armor 

  • Natalie is explicitly stated to use White Magic and Black Magic, making her a Red Mage, but she is the only one who can't equip the Red Mage armor in the third game. What.



So what exactly is canon in this world? Did Bullet Heaven and Adventure Story actually happen in between the main EBF games? Is One More Final Battle and Brawl Royale canon? Is the white mage from Black Mages 5 the same person as Natalie?

  • Bullet Heaven may not be canon, because it features the party fighting Godcat, in which the party has never seen Godcat before EBF4, and after EBF4, Godcat flew off to make a new world for cats. Adventure Story may be canon, where in the intro cutscene, Natalie is shown introducing NoLegs to Matt, showing that it takes place before EBF2 (where Matt casually summons NoLegs), but after EBF1 (Where NoLegs was an enemy). One More Final Battle and Brawl Royale are cannon due to Red Mage's appearance in Brawl Royale (opponent #3) and EBF2 (the first shopkeeper), where he's even cited as "an old rival" (or something to that effect). The thing about White Mage though... I don't think that she's the same as Natalie. Maybe she's a twin or something. First of all, White Mage has heterochromia, while Natz doesn't. Also, White Mage became a ninja in Brawl Royale (for some reason), while Natalie (who has only appeared in games after this one) consistently has piss-poor physical attack stats. I mean, you'd think that SOME of her ninjary would have carried over. She's the EIGHTH opponent in Royale, just behind Lord Canti (whoever he is) and SS3 Zombie Goku for crying out loud!
    • About that Bullet Heaven bit; it's apparently possible that Godcat can't actually show herself to any party member yet, even though she's part of the boss sprite. As far as the party is concerned it could be the bird/dragon hybrid monster that's wreaking havoc with the world. For her to appear at all, though, this could possibly overlap with the theft of the Greenwood jewel in EBF4. Each jewel giving Godcat some power might actually make sense, given her surprise encounters in the midgame overlapping with the Greenwood and Whitefall jewel thefts.
  • Basically, everything is pretty much canon. The Devourer basically pulls whatever data obstructs its ideal and rewrites the world as it chooses between installments.


How well does it match the trope?
