Red Dragon is a boss from Final Fantasy VII. It appears at Temple of the Ancients Passage VI. After defeating Red Dragon, the player will be able to get the Bahamut Materia.


It is recommended, if the party are low-leveled, to try to have the following equipped:

  • Elemental materia partnered to a Fire Materia or Ifrit on the armor.
  • Poison Materia.
  • Added Effect partnered to Poison Materia to a weapon.
  • Fire Ring, or anything else that might absorb the Fire-based attacks.

It is a good idea to give Aeris a Restore+All Materia so that she can keep on healing the party. The Red Dragon can also be poisoned. Being in low levels, the party will be taking a lot of damage from the Red Dragon. Also, like most boss fights in the game, it is immune to Gravity-type spells and also absorbs Fire damage. It is another good idea to use Big Guard or Barrier and MBarrier to soften its attacks.

  • Red Dragon Breath: Medium to high Fire damage. It can follow up with another attack to the same person, so it is advise to heal quickly. This only hits one party member.
  • Tail Whip: Red Dragon's weakest attack, but still a threat to low-leveled characters. This hits one member.
  • Dragon Fang: Red Dragon's most powerful attack for those low-leveled and have no Big Guard. It means death or close to it,. This hits only one party member.

However, because all of Red Dragon's attacks hit a single party member, with the aid of Slow or a slower battle speed, the player can simply revive the Dragon's victims immediately after being hit using Phoenix Downs and Life, enabling the use of Poison-stall strategies.
