If characters with at least 250 range exist in the player's current party, this is a very simple boss to deal with. Its Ball attack does low damage, although it produces a long-lasting fire residue on impact with the ground. Dodge the balls and kill the Pink Gel Tree in the area quickly, and this boss will go down easily. Ice and Thunder type weapons will be especially helpful for ranged characters.
Low-range teams, especially melee-only teams, will find this boss much more difficult. It has different AI than normal dragons - this one tends to stay at the top of the area, and has an attack range that spans most of the screen. In addition, the usual Lure strategy does not work well since the boss will not chase stickmen at all. Investment in the Catapult's Card, Big Card and/or Long Sword's Card may be necessary for such teams to get past this boss.
