The Red Dragon, also known as the R.Dragon, shows up as a boss in Final Fantasy II, first in the Jade Passage guarding a treasure chest containing the powerful Yoichi's Bow. Later it may be found wandering around a secret room in Pandaemonium as well as the last floor as a random encounter.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Despite being the last elemental dragon boss fought in Final Fantasy II, the Red Dragon is surprisingly a bit weaker than the Blue Dragon that precedes it, and the same strategy is effective. The party should equip Ice-based weapons or a Blood Sword, cast defensive spells like Protect and Shell, and attack mercilessly with Blizzard spells and Ice-imbued weaponry, pausing to cast Cure every time the Red Dragon casts Blaze XVI on the party.

An alternate method of winning is to simply cast a level 8 or higher Teleport.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, which is featured in the myths of many cultures.

Chromatic dragon is a classification of dragon in the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons who are typically of evil alignment, in contrast to the metallic dragons, and their queen is Tiamat. White, black, green, blue and red dragons are the classic chromatic dragons. Final Fantasy has derived a lot of influence from D&D, especially the early series. Red dragons are the largest and most powerful of the classic chromatic dragons who regard other chromatic dragons as inferior and make home inside active volcanoes or mountains. Red dragons use their powerful breath first, followed by physical strikes, then magical attacks.
