The Gold Dragon is an enemy in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. It is not a difficult foe to defeat, as its main methods of attacking are a moderately powerful physical attack and Thunderbolt. It counters all damage with Constrict however, so be wary and bring protection to Paralysis. Gold Dragons will follow a pattern of Attack > Attack > Thunderbolt, at which point they will restart the loop. To avoid its counters and the possibility of Thunderbolt usage, Tornado and Stop are two excellent spells (Stop to prevent it from taking any action at all, and Tornado to reduce its HP to single digits). If neither spells are available, or the player does not have any mages in their party to cast said spells, using the Slow spell will give the player ample time to defeat the dragon before it uses Thunderbolt.
