Battle Edit

Tyrannosaurs only attack in two formations: alone and in pairs, the latter of which is always a Surrounded attack that even an Alarm Earring cannot prevent. Being in a Pincer Attack boosts Tyrannosaur's Attack power and makes it even more dangerous. Its special attack, Bite, can inflict several thousand damage and easily kill a party member, and their Meteor spell can inflict upwards of a thousand damage to all party members.

When defeated, it may drop the Impartisan.

Strategy Edit

Blizzaga, Flare, and Ultima spells work best against it. An easy way to defeat this enemy is to use the Vanish-Doom bug by casting Vanish, and then follow up with Doom to instantly kill it. As this bug was eliminated in the Advance in subsequent releases, players of those versions will need to rely on other strategies and have sufficient defenses to withstand its attacks.

Coliseum setup Edit

Bet Miracle Shoes for Tintinnabulum

Ice Rods are a great choice for exploiting Tyrannosaur's weakness to ice, with its chance of casting Blizzara giving it an advantage over endgame weapons such as Gladius and Holy Lance. Maxing out the character's Defense and/or Evasion should deal with the Tyrannosaur's powerful Bite attack.

Etymology Edit

Trivia Edit

Bahamut Lagoon - Deboahan

Deboahan in Bahamut Lagoon.

  • The sprite that is shared between Tyrannosaur, Earth Dragon, Weredragon, Chaos Dragon, and Hexadragon was used and modified for some of the Salmando class dragons in Bahamut Lagoon, namely the Deboahan and Aspidredon.
  • The Tyrannosaurus was one of the last dinosaur to live on Earth before the extinction was triggered by a massive comet or asteroid impact 66 million years ago. Ironically, the Tyrannosaur enemy uses the Meteor spell for an attack and as its Rage.
