The Red Dragon is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is a dangerous foe early on in the game, and if the player is underleveled, as its physical attacks deal a significant amount of damage, or it can attack the entire party with Thermal Rays for major Fire-elemental damage. Having Fire-elemental resistant equipment is recommended for dealing with these fearsome foes, and if the player has them, weapons such as the Dragon Claws and Loki's Lute help significantly.

Red Dragons follow a strict pattern of Attack > Attack > Thermal Rays, and then loops back at the first Attack.

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.
