The Blue Dragon is a foe introduced in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. It typically appears near rivers and oceans.

Appearance

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.

Overview

The Blue Dragon is a high-end foe that uses powerful Water attacks to Wet the party, increasing the damage of its random-targeting Ice attack. It can also bite a player for good non-elemental damage or roar to give itself and its allies a strong Magic Defence buff, but its ultimate attack is Tsunami, which has twice the power of the average Dragon "Megaflare" on top of incredible Accuracy and a massive chance to inflict the maximum amount of Wet stacks on the entire party.

The Blue Dragon becomes noticeably more dangerous after losing half of its HP, using nothing but Bubble Spray, Iceshard Volley, and especially Tsunami. It is recommended to finish it off as soon as possible; strong Water and Ice resistance are useful to blunt the damage of its pure elemental attacks. Maintaining Barrier and using equipment with high Magic Defence is also advisable, as all of its attacks are magical once it hits the half-HP threshold.

Inflicting Syphon will limit the Blue Dragon to using Bite, although its high resistance makes this a difficult strategy. Applying Berserk has different effects depending on its HP level; above half health, it'll use Bite and Flood, but it'll spam Tsunami below that threshold. On the other hand, this could be turned to the party's advantage if they all have massive Water resistance to fall back on. Ironically enough, it is also vulnerable to Wet, which amplifies its worst elemental weaknesses; given its Water absorption, Cloudburst is the optimal skill to apply the status.

The Blue Dragon absorbs Water and resists Bomb, Wind and Fire. However, it is weak to Poison, and even more vulnerable to Thunder and Ice. It also has an immunity to Doom, Instant Death, and debuffs to its defenses, as well as strong resistances to Syphon, Stun, and Freeze. Enabling "More Foe Resistance" gives it an Ice absorption, Holy and Stagger resistances, and an immunity to Weaken, Accuracy, and Evade debuffs.

Battle Logic

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.)

Trivia

  • According to Matt Roszak, the Blue Dragon (and presumably its EBF5 successor/equivalent, the Sea Dragon) is partially based on a seahorse.
