Come forth, my creature of shadow!

Golbez summoning the Shadow Dragon

The Shadow Dragon is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV that is summoned by Golbez. After locating the underworld Crystals in the Dwarven Castle, and defeating the Calcabrina, Cecil and his party are interrupted by Golbez and forced to battle him. Golbez immediately paralyzes the party and calls forth the Shadow Dragon. All members of the party are defeated by the Shadow Dragon's Black Fang attack, except for Cecil. Rydia shows up, now an adult, and summons the Mist Dragon. Rydia's Eidolon defeats the Shadow Dragon, and Cecil and his friends can deal with Golbez. Golbez still manages to escape with the Dwarves' Crystal.

The Shadow Dragon does not appear in the 3D versions' bestiary.
