Appearances[edit | edit source]
Blue Dragon is an enemy fought at Mirage Tower, and in the Game Boy Advance and later releases, in the Whisperwind Cove. Blue Dragons have a moderately high attack and access to the ability Thunderbolt.
Blue Dragon is initially fought as a boss in Jade Passage as a Monster-in-a-box and later in a secret room and the final two floors of Pandaemonium. It has high attack and defense, though lower than the Red Dragon and Blue Dragon, and attacks with strong physical attacks and the ability Thunderbolt XVI. Like its other brethren, it can drop the Dragon Armor, Dragon Shield, and Holy Lance, but instead of dropping the Black Garb will instead drop the Wizard's Staff. It is weak to Poison-elemental attacks.
Blue Dragon is an enemy fought in the Lunar Subterrane, often fought either in pairs or with a Red Dragon. It primarily focuses on using strong physical attacks, but also utilizes the Icestorm to damage the party. The Blue Dragon is a powerful foe, being one of two foes in the Game Boy Advance and later releases (and thus the only foe in pre-GBA versions) to absorb all elemental attacks (excluding 3D remakes), in addition to not being able to escape through normal means except through Teleport. It drops the powerful Dragon Whisker for Rydia as well as the Wyvern Lance, and can also drop the White Fang and Shuriken.
In the 3D versions, Blue Dragons has double the HP of the 2D version, and they can be a challenging fight for anyone unprepared. If the player has access to Dragon Mail and Cursed Ring then they can absorb the Icestorm attack.
Blue Dragon returns as an enemy fought in the Depths, and is one of the very few dragons in the game to not drop any tail items. It is near identical otherwise to its previous appearance, now absorbing all elements except Earth-elemental, Lightning-elemental, and Water-elemental attacks.
Blue Dragon is an optional boss fought at the Ancient Castle, and in the Game Boy Advance and later ports, at the Dragons' Den and Soul Shrine. It is now a Water-elemental dragon, utilizing attacks such as Tsunami, Flash Rain, Acid Rain, and Aqua Breath, in addition to Slow and Rippler (in the second fight it only has access to Rippler, Aqua Breath, Flash Rain, and Tsunami, but gains access to El Niño and Blue Fang). Upon defeat at the Ancient Castle, it will drop the Zantetsuken and when defeated in the Dragons' Den, it will drop Celes's ultimate weapon, Save the Queen.
Blue Dragon is fought as an enemy exclusively at Gaea's Cliff, in the room with the healing spring and the boss room, and as a possible opponent in the battle arena after obtaining the Highwind. It has access to the standard Dragon Fang and Tail Attacks that all dragons have, in addition to Blue Dragon Breath for Ice-elemental damage, Great Gale for Wind-elemental damage to the party, and the Enemy Skill Dragon Force (which the party cannot learn from this enemy). It is a valuable enemy in that it will always drop a Dragon Armlet after defeating it in battle, making it a prime way of obtaining the armor.
While it is not known as the Blue Dragon in Japan, it is called Blue Dragon in English releases.
Sharing the blood of Midgardsormr and his progeny, the great wyrms, a blue dragon can live upwards of a thousand summers─a period during which the creature will undergo divers changes to its physical and mental capacities. This independent “evolution” of sorts renders each member of the species unique, making it all the more difficult for enemies of the dragons to conceive and establish any manner of standardized battle strategy.
Triple Triad Card description
One of the commonly seen forms of adult dragons, Blue Dragons typically possess blue scales with a cream-colored underbelly. They are heavily aspected to ice, and as such this bestows them with an icy breath and can release ice magic with their Rime Wreath ability.
Blue Dragon is the middle class of the Dragon-family, possessing the skills Charge, Ice Breath, and when near an unit with Beastmaster, Thunder Breath. It can be poached into the Cashmere and Dragon Rod.
