The Red Dragon is a foe and a summon in Epic Battle Fantasy 4. The foe appears mostly in burnt areas, such as lava caves of Crystal Caverns and Lankyroot Jungle. It is a member of the Dragon enemy family.


The Red Dragon is based off of Blaze, the Pyrohydra head from EBF3. Aesthetically the Red Dragon is nearly identical to Blaze, complete with a series of salmon spikes along the neck and head, golden eyes, and red scales.


As a dragon, the Red Dragon is a fearsome foe that is not to be trifled with. Unlike other dragons, it doesn't pack numerous elemental resistances, but is weak only to Ice and Water (though many Water attacks can inflict Wet to further boost Ice attacks), strongly resistant to several debilitating status effects and immune to Instant Death.

Offensively, the Red Dragon wields Fire-elemental might, and many of its attacks have side effects such as causing Burn or stat debuffs. It also has backup non-elemental melee attacks, and a strong mostly-physical buff ability, which would probably benefit its allies more than the dragon itself.
