BattleEdit

Dark Dragons use strong physical attacks—Claw and Tail Attack—which may use twice in one turn. It uses Dark Dragon Breath, which may inflict Darkness to all party members. His most powerful attack is Ultima, which it uses as a counter-attack against magical attacks once per battle.

It is vulnerable to Gravity, but casting any magic on it will cause it to counter with Ultima. The party can steal rare and useful Dragon Armlets from them.

When manipulated, the player may learn the enemy skills Dragon Force and Laser from it. It is recommended to manipulate them or inflict Sleep, then cast spells such as Laser on it to inflict damage quickly.

StrategyEdit

Manipulating them into casting Laser on themselves is a effective way of defeating Dark Dragons without risk of retaliation, as Laser is not a physical attack and therefore does not cure Manipulation. Otherwise, strong physical attacks as well as 4x-Cut work well.
