Red Dragon Boss Strategy

Avoid using Fire or Gravity Magic

The boss absorbs all Fire magic, restoring HP when hit by it. In addition, its strong resistance to Gravity makes spells like Demi next to useless in the fight.

Poison is Effective

Having Bio equipped allows you to gradually deplete its HP while bombarding it with Summons and Limit Breaks. You can also equip Poison Materia paired with Added Effect Materia to grant the Poison effect to a party member’s weapon.

Aim for Fire Resistance

Equipping a Fire Ring can help mitigate damage received from the boss’s fire attacks. You can also pair Elemental Materia with Fire or the Ifrit Summon Materia on armor to gain some resistance to the element.

Use Aerith’s Fury Brand

You can use Aerith’s Fury Brand to immediately fill up the Limit Break gauges of her allies. This allows you to burst down the boss and end the fight quickly.
