Black Dragon is a Soul of Rebirth enemy in Final Fantasy II. It is also a boss in the Southwest Arcane Labyrinth. They attack with powerful physical blows, and use Flare XVI to deal massive damage to a single target.


Strategy Edit

Since Minwu is in the party, a useful strategy is to cast Dispel on the Black Dragon to lower its magic resistances, rendering it vulnerable to status ailments and thus much easier to defeat. Otherwise, the Black Dragon has high defenses and no weaknesses and can be quite difficult to kill. An alternate method is to simply use Minwu's Teleport spell, if it is level 8 or higher, to defeat it in one go.

Etymology Edit

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

Chromatic dragon is a classification of dragon in the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons who are typically of evil alignment, in contrast to the metallic dragons, and their queen is Tiamat. White, black, green, blue and red dragons are the classic chromatic dragons. Final Fantasy has derived a lot of influence from D&D, especially the early series. Black dragons are the most vile-tempered and cruel, and breathe acid.
