Gaia dragon

The Gaia dragon is a species of red, bipedal dragons introduced to the series in the tenth game. Calamitous cousins of the more common Liege lizards, the Gaia dragons are long forgotten evils that dwell in subterranean depths and are capable of eradicating entire countrysides.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Gaia Dragons first appear as a boss in the game, having a whopping 12,009 HP and 9,999 MP. Their abilities consist of Total War Cry, using its eye of the dragon to block physical and magical attacks in a single turn, and breathe a Blistering Inferno to burn one enemy to ashes.
