The Blue Dragon and Cruel Dragon are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters, resembling hunched, squat dragons, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the game. This enemy line is notable because both of its variants can randomly drop a rare piece of equipment that cannot be found anywhere else.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Blue Dragon[edit]

Blue Dragon.png

A Blue Dragon is a level 32 variant with light blue skin and orange-brown horns and wings. It appears throughout Jupiter Lighthouse.

The Blue Dragon is statistically the strongest of the monsters in Jupiter Lighthouse, with its Agility rating being the only stat that is not quite as high as another monster's, namely the almost-as-strong Wyvern. The Blue Dragon's rare and unique drop, the Rising Mace, is highly desirable at this point because it is a Jupiter-based weapon like the Phaeton's Blade you get from a chest, and is exactly as powerful. Also, compared to many other monsters that drop unique equipment, the Rising Mace is dropped not quite as rarely, so it is highly recommended to repeatedly fell Blue Dragons using Mars Djinn until you get one. The Rising Mace is a perfect fit for the Mace-wielding Jupiter Adept, Sheba.

Images from a beta version of the original Golden Sun reveal that Blue Dragons were originally coded as common enemies in that game, but were taken out to appear in the sequel.

A Blue Dragon's statistics are as follows:

Cruel Dragon[edit]

Cruel Dragon.png

A Cruel Dragon is a level 38 variant with dark purple skin and green horns and wings. It appears throughout the linear hallways of the later, deeper portion of Islet Cave accessible with Teleport.

The Cruel Dragon is close to being as strong as the Druj, but both are outranked in sheer threat (and EXP) value by the Wonder Bird. Nonetheless, like the Wonder Bird, this is one of the most worthwhile monsters to repeatedly fell, because it drops one of the best weapons in the series, the Tisiphone Edge. Also note, however, that this is one of the very few monsters in the games that drops its item at a 1/256 chance, meaning that even if you use offensive Mars Djinn to fell every Cruel Dragon you come across, it could take a long, long while to get one through a miracle of a 1/64 chance. Naturally, this is one of the most popular targets with which to abuse the Random Number Generator so as to guarantee that the dragon drops one of this weapon (and gathering multiple Tisiphone Edges is highly essential to making a "perfect" end-of-game party).

A Cruel Dragon's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Cruel Dragon 636 65 539 216 162 26
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate
Star mercury.gif 175   Star venus.gif 100   Star jupiter.gif 100   Star mars.gif 25 1 661 358 Tisiphone Edge.gif Tisiphone Edge 1/256

Dragon[edit]

Like with all other enemy lines introduced in The Lost Age that seem to have only two variants, a third palette-swapped variant to this line exists in the code of the game cart and was even given its own name, but has none of its statistics and abilities coded beyond weak placeholder abilities. Had it been used, it would have appeared as a variant with light yellow-green skin and dark purple horns and wings simply named Dragon.
