Find a sphere and the fiends appear.


The Flame Dragon is a boss in Final Fantasy X-2, found in the back of a cave on Besaid Island in Chapter 1. It can also be encountered in Via Infinito.





The Flame Dragon is strong as it has a Flame Breath attack that can cause triple-digit damage. In Oversoul, it is even more dangerous, as it can gather strength for Bruiser Tail, a group phyiscal attack which hits for 37.5% of the party's max HP.


The player should have a Black Mage cast Ice spells every turn for heavy damage, while the other two can attack normally, or a Warrior could use its Ice Brand technique. This can also be done with a captured White Elemental, which can cast Blizzard or Blizzara.

Another strategy to use with the above strategy is to equip the party with the Heart of Flame Garment Grid (reward for completing the "Foggy Fiend Frenzy!" mission) to absorb its Fire-based attacks.

Creature Creator[]

Flame Dragon can be recruited into the party between Chapters 1 and 4 with a Trap pod L in Besaid, or in Chapter 5 with a Trap pod L in Luca. It retains its Flame Breath and Tail Swipe attacks from its boss battle and comes with Ailment Def. and Fire Eater.

Fiend Arena[]

To enter the Aeon Cup in the Fiend Arena, the player must capture and raise the story levels of eight special creatures. These creatures will immediately be available to be released upon capture, however, what the player has to do is raise their story levels by three and then release them. This will change that particular creature into an aeon. The Flame Dragon is one of these eight creatures, capable of being changed into Ifrit.
