Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Claret Dragon is a powerful enemy found in latter parts of the game with high stats and a resistance to all magic. It can hurt all of the party at once and uses Fire Breath for fire-elemental damage.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Strong physical attacks are the way to go here. It is wise to use high Defense dresspheres as well as Light Curtains to avoid the damage it can do to the entire party in one blow, and it is also wise to stock up on Mega-Potions as well as having Fire resistance to avoid its Flame Breath attack.
Armor Break and Power Break help weaken it enough to where the party can take less damage and dish out more damage, but the party should keep HP high. High evasion is helpful, as it will allow the girls to avoid getting hit by everything except Flame Breath.
Fiend Tale[edit | edit source]
One notable Claret Dragon was trapped in a cycle of reincarnation where he was reborn a dragon hunter who is killed by dragons and reborn in his fiend state to be killed by other dragon hunters. Though he hated his fate, Claret Dragon allowed a monk to kill him to overcome his fear of death, but ended up getting closure as he departs to the Farplane.
