It an undead enemy and the first enemy encountered that can inflict Zombie status. Locke can steal Holy Waters from them to recover the status. They can also use Sandstorm, which deals about two hundred damage to the entire party. The Fossil Dragon is weak to Holy-elemental attacks.


Sabin's Aura Cannon deals massive damage to it. Alternatively, the player can kill the Fossil Dragon by using a Phoenix Down or the aforementioned Holy Water on it, as it is an undead opponent.
