Eternal Fighter Zero -Memorial- Edition is the fourth and final major version of Eternal Fighter Zero, a 2D doujin fighter developed by Tasofro (known for developing Immaterial and Missing Power and Touhou Hisoutensoku) and originally released on August 11th, 2000. Its colorful cast of characters are originally from the visual novels Moon., One: Kagayaku Kisetsu e, Kanon, and Air, along with one extra character. Many of the characters’ attacks also reference other fighting games such as Guilty Gear, King of Fighters, and Last Blade. Memorial Edition (EFZ 4.0) released in 2005 and added three new playable characters, gameplay changes, a completely redone soundtrack, and more.

EFZ Revival

On November 2014, the game received a fanmade rollback netplay caster called EFZ Revival. This fan patch included compatibility fixes which allow the game to run on modern Windows operating systems without any extra workarounds from D3Dwindower or other tools, added improved training mode options, replay takeover functionality, and various other improvements.

The program Concerto released support for EFZ on January 1st, 2023, providing a lobby system for the game using EFZ Revival.

Key Features

  • Anime Fighter: Characters in EFZ can chain their normals, double jump, airdash, air block, air recover, and air throw. There's only 4 buttons to worry about, some characters only use 3 buttons even.
  • Simple Combo System: The game actively tells you how much scaling you have on your combo via the POWER gauge, even showing a bar with remaining untech under the opponent during juggles. There's also no black beat system as they immediately fall invulnerably to the ground, making EFZ's combo system very easy to learn and build your own combos with.
  • Recoil Guard: EFZ's version of an Instant Block/Just Defend mechanic, performed by blocking right before getting hit. Recoil Guard negates all chip damage and pushback while allowing the defender to guard cancel into almost anything. However, the defender can time another RG as the counter attack connects, allowing for reflex-based tug-of-wars with Recoil counters. Somewhat like Shield Counters in Type Lumina.
  • Reinforce Gauge: In addition to a traditional super meter (SP Gauge), players also have an RF Gauge which builds passively over time. The RF Gauge is located below the larger SP gauge, and is universally used for EX moves and roman cancels.
  • Tech Traps: Characters fall invincibly after recovering from aerial hitstun, and air recovering will make them fully vulnerable again. A common strategy is to end combos with "tech traps" to meaty recovering opponents and make them choose to fall instead.
  • Amazing Training Mode: Through EFZ Revival, the VS HUMAN mode serves as a fully featured training mode. With built-in save-states, hitbox visualizers, conditional record/play, character swapping, and more. The game even has replay takeover via the Replay function, which can be shared by sending the ".rep" files.
