Death Rider is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI fought at the Dragons' Den, a dungeon exclusive to the Advance, Android, iOS and Steam versions.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

Like his three palette swap counterparts, it always attacks the party alone. Unlike his fellow "riders", however, Death Rider does not have a lance attack; Hell's Rider has Silver Lance, Test Rider has Golden Lance, and Dante has Crystal Lance.

The Death Rider may use Pox, Death, or Blaster on his first turn. He can user Metal Cutter, Poltergeist, or Freezing Dust on his second turn, and then Hyperdrive on his third turn. Death Rider will counter all damage with two Pox attacks; though not overwhelmingly powerful, the constant double-retaliation strikes do add up quickly.

Strategy Edit

It is recommended to have someone on standby to heal. Using strong attacks, such as Firaga, Flare, and Ultima, or simply having Vanish will help with dealing with this enemy. Being undead, reviving spells such as Raise can instantly defeat it.
