The Blue Dragon is a large aquatic dragon with blue scales and a metallic grey underbelly. It has pale blue eyes, and most of its face is covered with small blue imprints. It's also notable for the blue protrusions on its back which resemble seaweed, and an alarmingly sharp and shiny snout that appears to be made of metal.
The Blue Dragon possesses several dangerous moves, including several Wetting Water attacks, a random-targeting Ice attack, and a generic non-elemental attack. What makes the Blue Dragon notable among its fellow dragons is that once it loses half of its health, it will shift to a moveset that involves using Tsunami half of the time. Tsunami has twice the power of the average dragon "Megaflare", and can deal blistering damage to the party. Because of this, Water resistance is very useful on harder difficulties, and it is recommended that once the Blue Dragon gets wounded the party finishes it off as soon as they can.
It's worth noting that inflicting Syphon will limit the Blue Dragon to using Bite, though its high resistance makes this a difficult strategy. Attempting to Berserk it will lead to the Blue Dragon spamming Tsunami at low health.

Attacks and Abilities
The following describes general logic of the enemy and attack patterns, with chances of each attack to be used. Conditions are listed from highest to lowest priority unless specified otherwise.
- Syphoned → Bite;
- Berserked AND HP ≥49% → Flood (1/2), Roar (1/2);
- Berserked AND HP <49% → Tsunami;
- ≥49% HP → Bite (1/5), Bubble Spray (1/5), Iceshard Volley (1/5), Flood (1/5), Roar (1/5);
- <49% HP → Bubble Spray (1/4), Iceshard Volley (1/4), Tsunami (2/4).
(Exact health requirement shown is technically inaccurate in some cases, but it allows for simpler explanation with little to no sacrifice, as the difference is less than a percent.)
