Story Edit

Prologue Edit

A thunderclap heralds the
coming of his retinue.

They descend like a swarm of
dark clouds on the horizon.

To arms, adventurers!
Rise up against the storm!

[If Route D is enabled]

The jade dragon awaits challengers
who strike swift as arrows of light.

Only those who rival lightning itself
can reach the stars and seize glory.

Before Battle 2 Edit

Fight with steady hand and heart,
striking with efficiency.

Should you choose poorly,
there is no turning back.

Before Battle 3 (Route B) Edit

Time is of the essence.
Strike swift and sure as lightning to prevail.

Before Battle 5 Edit

The beast has crossed over from the other side.
Throw open the doors, O valiant ones.

The jade dragon awaits you.

Strategy Edit

All enemies will heal when taking damage from their own element: Thunderer, Thundering Ring and Yang heal from Lightning; Yin heals from Darkness.

Each Thunderer may summon a Thundering Ring on their turn, as long as their summoned ring is not on the field. When a Thunderer starts glowing, it will use Paralyze, Area (1) on its next turn.

All versions of Jade Dragon are immune to all status ailments and stat debuffs. They take 200% damage from Darkness, 80% damage from Fire and Ice, and heal from Lightning.
