Battle[]

Dark Dragon Breath.

Dark Dragon uses strong physical attacks—Claw and Tail Attack—which may be used twice in one turn. Its Dark Dragon Breath may inflict Darkness to all party members. Its most powerful attack is Ultima, which it uses as a counter-attack against magical attacks once per battle. It is vulnerable to Gravity, but will counter it with Ultima. The party can steal the rare and useful Dragon Armlet from it.

When manipulated, the player may learn the enemy skills Dragon Force and Laser from it.

Strategy[]

The player can manipulate the Dark Dragon into casting Laser on itself. Laser is not a physical attack and therefore does not cure Manipulation. Otherwise, strong physical attacks and 4x-Cut work well. The player can also inflict Sleep on the dragon before casting spells with Sleepel, Bad Breath or Frog Song.
