The Shield Dragon is an enemy in Final Fantasy V.


Extremely powerful when first encountered, this creature attacks quickly with its Knock Silly attack, which inflicts Confuse. If attacked physically, it will counter by using Knock Silly twice. It has constant Reflect, Protect and Shell statuses. When considerable damage has been inflicted on the Shield Dragon, it will flee from battle. If the Shield Dragon is defeated, the player is rewarded with massive experience.

Catching and releasing a Shield Dragon will give the player access to the powerful Almagest spell.


One way to stop it from fleeing is by controlling it and using its Blaze attack on itself to defeat it. Blaze will deal 4,999 damage to the Shield Dragon.



A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.
