The Blue Dragon is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is one of the eight legendary dragons, and is the dragon of the Water element. The Blue Dragon can be found in the Ancient Castle in the World of Ruin in a secret side passage. The player must take five steps down from the right side of the throne and press the confirm button to find a secret switch to reveal a staircase in the right room leading to the basement. The Blue Dragon wanders this chamber.

As with the other dragons, it is re-fought in the Dragons' Den bonus dungeon in the Advance and subsequent releases. The Dragon's Den incarnation of the Blue Dragon uses a different field sprite than the original, with purple and pink coloring instead of dark blue and gold-brown.

Battle Edit

First battle Edit

The Blue Dragon attacks by using Acid Rain, Flash Rain, and Tsunami. Acid Rain can be particularly dangerous because it gives the entire party the Sap status. If any party members have Haste Blue Dragon will cast Slow on itself and use Rippler to exchange its status with a party member's. The easiest way to avoid this is to not cast Haste. Rippler exchanges all statuses, positive and negative, but the Blue Dragon's AI script only checks for Haste status to determine if it will use Rippler or not.

It is thus dangerous to bring Shadow to this fight, or to Trance Terra, since both Trance and Interceptor count as invisible statuses, and due to the Rippler bug these statuses will be transferred to the Blue Dragon. In the case of Interceptor, unless Rippler is used to transfer it back to the party before killing the Blue Dragon, Interceptor will be lost and will no longer block attacks for Shadow.

Second battle Edit

FF6-BlueDragonField2

Unlike the other dragons in the Dragons' Den, the Blue Dragon is mostly the same as before, only with higher stats. It can take two turns at once and still uses Water-elemental attacks. The Rippler AI script functions differently: Blue Dragon will use Rippler on any party member with Haste, Protect or Shell, and will inflict Poison, Slow, and Blind on itself before using Rippler. Its special attack, Blue Fang, can inflict Stop on a character.

A few castings of Thundaga, Flare, and Ultima can take the dragon down. Slaying the Blue Dragon gives the player Celes's ultimate weapon, Save the Queen, and shatters the Seal of Water blocking certain areas of the dungeon.
