Garyu is a dragon that is thought to be a baby. Despite being still a whelp, it is the tallest NPC ally in the game. The horn on one part of his head is broken, presumably either due to a clash or some kind of accident. Not much else is known about the creature other than it is aggressive to outsiders and seen as being "highly intelligent."


Garyu is an optional character in the game. You must beat him in his cavern in order to recruit him to the team. 


He is clearly very intelligent and can understand human speech. Garyu interacts little with the party, and is only affectionate toward Toma and Cyrille.


When facing Garyu, it is wise to be at level 60 at least before fighting him as he deals massive damage quickly and can overwhelm your characters if you aren't careful. He mostly launches explosive fireballs or rams into characters in an attempt to knock them down, therefore, it is advisable to use a character that has immunity to such things or use Fairy Dust.

Since Garyu is a Dragon and has Wings, he will be vunerable to weapons that make use of these characteristics like Dragon Slayer or Dragon Crossbow. You can also use Frozen Crossbow for Cyrille to strike him down.

Make sure you have plenty of HP, MP, resistances to Fire, and high defense.
