The Ice Dragon returns in he Dragons' Den, but like the other seven dragons, the battle is made more difficult with special conditions. The Ice Dragon employs the same battle tactic as the Vector Lythos in Kefka's Tower: although only one Ice Dragon is visible, there are actually four with their sprites overlaid upon one another. All four must be dispatched to win. To compensate, the Ice Dragons individually have lower HP than the other revived dragons.
The Ice Dragons can use Blizzaga, Freezing Dust, Snowstorm, Avalanche, and their new special attack, Freeze, which inflicts Stop. As the Ice Dragons become fewer in number, the remaining dragons will use Freeze with greater frequency.
Defeating the Ice Dragons destroys the Seal of Ice, and also gives the player Setzer's most powerful weapon, the Final Trump.
Though the player's first instinct may be to use group-attacks to hit all Ice Dragons at once, this is a bad idea as all four will likely strike the attacking party member in response. It is safer to focus on one dragon at a time. Firaga spells are most useful for this. Alternatively, the player can kill all four dragons at once with a very specific set-up: a character with high magic power equipped with a Soul of Thamasa who knows Quick and Ultima. The player should cast Vanish on them, then Quick, then dualcast Ultima twice. If the character's magic power is high enough this will do 9,999 damage to all four Ice Dragons, and thus four casts of Ultima will kill them in one round. Even if this fails, the dragons will be weak collectively.
