The Silver Dragon is a boss from Final Fantasy IX. It is a creature indigenous to Terra, as it is frequently seen as Kuja's method of transportation, and later a creature summoned by Garland to attack the party in Pandemonium.

Stats[edit | edit source]

Battle[edit | edit source]

The Silver Dragon has four attacks, two of which are Wind-elemental: Claw is a single-target physical attack; Shockwave is a physical attack on all targets; and Aerial Slash and Twister are Wind-elemental attacks on all targets.

After the battle, the player will face off against Garland.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

It is recommended to have high Defense and equipment that can nullify or absorb Wind-elemental attacks, such as Ribbon or a Coronet. Quina's Night spell works, but the player party needs to be protected against Sleep.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

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

Metallic dragon is a classification of dragon in Dungeons & Dragons where they are of good alignment, and their deity is Bahamut. Silver dragons are the second-most powerful of the metallic dragons, who enjoy the company of humans and elves so much they often take their form and live among them. The early Final Fantasy series derived a lot of influence of Dungeons & Dragons.
