The Shield Dragon is an enemy in Final Fantasy V.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

Extremely powerful when first encountered, this creature attacks quickly with its Knock Silly attack, which inflicts Confuse. If attacked physically, it will counter by using Knock Silly twice. It has constant Reflect, Protect and Shell statuses. When the Shield Dragon's HP becomes less than half its maximum HP, it will flee from battle. If the Shield Dragon is defeated, the player is rewarded with massive experience.

Catching and releasing a Shield Dragon will give the player access to the powerful Almagest spell.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

One way to stop it from fleeing is by controlling it and using its Blaze attack on itself to defeat it. Blaze will deal 4,999 damage to the Shield Dragon.
