The Red Dragon is a mini-boss from Final Fantasy IX. The party fights them three times in Mount Gulug, two of the battles having two dragons. They guard several pieces of equipment, appearing after the party has taken the piece of equipment and set back on the path. Red dragons will no longer be present after Meltigemini has been defeated.

Battle[edit | edit source]

Red Dragon specializes in Wind-based attacks and resists Fire. Quina can learn the Blue Magic spell Twister from one. It is recommended to eat one at first chance, as there are only three fixed encounters of them. The next opportunity to learn Twister is Abadon on Terra past a point of no return.

Quina's Night spell works against the Red Dragon, but the party must be protected against Sleep also.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, which features 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.
