As its name suggests, a powerful foe. Reduces HP to 1 with Fallen One, or attacks with S. Cross, then vanishes with Melt. Just hope 2 don't appear at once.
Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Fiend Dragon, also known as Doom Drgn, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.

They only appear in a single hallway near the end of the tower before the party confronts Demon, as well as in a small "U-Turn" shaped cave area taken only by the 1st Party that links a laboratory and exterior area. Thus, since it's not unlikely the player will wander through both areas without a random encounter, the player may quite easily miss it.

Battle Edit

It is one of the most dangerous enemies in Kefka's Tower, mainly because it counterattacks with Heartless Angel frequently, which is unblockable and reduces the HP of the entire party to 1. If this happens, it can mean an instant Game Over if no one in the party is immune to or absorbs Fire, because it can then use Southern Cross to attack the entire party for Fire-elemental damage. The Fiend Dragon also uses Northern Cross to inflict Frozen on characters (although its own Southern Cross can remove the status), and Dissolve to give itself the Vanish status. They can sometimes appear in groups of two, making them all the more dangerous.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Apocalypse for Save the Queen
Bet Rename Card for Miracle Shoes

Put Mog in the back row and equip the Paladin's Shield/Flame Shield, and Snow Scarf along with the best available helmet. Paladin Shield/Flame Shield will take care of Southern Cross. Snow Scarf, along with an appropriate helmet, will bring Mog's Defense to 255 which, along with his position, ensures his surviving any physical attacks following the use of Heartless Angel. Northern Cross will do nothing more than delay Mog, since the Frozen status will either be removed by Southern Cross or will simply wear off.

Valiant Knife with Merit Award is a good offensive option depending on Mog's level and HP, since Fiend Dragon will most likely use Heartless Angel sooner or later, after which Valiant Knife will get a boost in damage due to Mog's low HP.

One of the best ways to beat this monstrosity is to put in Gogo with the Paladin shield with Blitz, and Sketch. Sketch could get lucky and use Heartless Angel on the Dragon, effectively ending the battle on the next turn.

One of the most effective ways of defeating it at lower levels is by using Umaro combined with an Angel Ring and the Berserker Ring. With a little bit of luck, the Fire and Ice absorption (combined with the Angel Ring) should be enough to prevent the Fiend Dragon from killing Umaro as low as level 35 (obviously, once the first victory is secured, the player should repeat the process, but replacing the Angel Ring with Miracle Shoes).

The player can also Steal useful Guard Bracelets from them; though the Guard Bracelet is not as useful as the aforementioned Miracle Shoes, it can be bet in the Coliseum to win a Hero's Ring, a relatively rare Relic that acquiring in quantities otherwise requires a lot of time and gil invested at the Auction.
