The White Dragon, known as the Frost D in the Nintendo Entertainment System version, is an enemy in the original Final Fantasy. White Dragon appears later in the Chaos Shrine, on the first floor. The dragon appears also in the Lifespring Grotto, in a room where a dragon, Dark Bahamut, orders the party to kill some of its disciples to continue to the next level. One of the disciples may be the White Dragon, which the party can fight. They sometimes come in groups of up to four dragons.
White Dragons are not as difficult to defeat as the Red Dragon, having less HP, Attack, and stats overall; which is strange, because the party is supposed to visit the Cavern of Ice after the visit to Mount Gulg. The White Dragon is of the Ice element, and thus is weak to Fire attacks, and resists Ice attacks. The dragon is also weak to Lightning. As with many winged enemies, the dragon is immune to Quake, and it is also invulnerable to Poison and Stone.
Even if the White Dragon is weaker than its red counterpart, it still has a trick up its sleeve: Icestorm, which deals Ice damage to all party members, and can be dangerous for members with low Defense.
A single Firaga will either finish it off or leave it very weak.
