Battle[edit | edit source]

Dragon Zombie's powerful Shadow Flare will likely kill whatever it hits. Its Poison Fang always inflicts Poison on its target. Its Abnormal Breath always inflicts Poison on one or all party members, and its Bone attack always paralyzes a character.

Pandora's Box.

Dragon Zombie uses Pandora's Box as its death move only once per save file, so if the party does not acquire it as an Enemy Skill the first time, they can never attempt to acquire it again. If the Dragon Zombie does not have enough MP to cast it, then Pandora's Box will be lost forever. However, if the battle is won by petrification (using the magic Break), then the Pandora's Box will be used on the next encounter with the foe.

The global variable for Pandora's Box is also used in the Jenova∙SYNTHESIS battle, meaning that after triggering this battle, if one were to fight another Dragon Zombie, it would again use Pandora's Box. Jenova∙SYNTHESIS is past the point of no return, however, and the only ways to get back from that point is by using some tricks to trigger a glitch in the game, such as the Yuffie warping glitch.

Dragon Zombie yields the rare Cauldron and morphs into Vaccines.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Reflect can throw Shadow Flare back at the Dragon Zombie. Mini renders Body Tail, Bone, Poison Fang, and Abnormal Breath harmless. Using Demi3 or Laser work well in this battle.
