Ouryu in Monarch Linn

  • Main Notorious Monster for the The Savage Chains of Promathia Mission.

  • Susceptible to Sleep, Silence, and Gravity. Immune to Stun.

  • Every two minutes, Ouryu will fly into the air, where he'll stay for two minutes before coming to the ground again. During this time, melee attacks will have no effect on him (magic and ranged attacks can still affect him though). While he's in the air, his normal attacks are magical, earth based attacks that cannot be absorbed by shadows, but can be reduced by damage reduction, magic defense, magic reduction, and earth resist effects (through gear, spells, job abilities, etc). While he is in the air, he cannot be slept (Sleep will land on him, but it will wear off immediately).

  • The item Mistmelt, obtained from the quest Fly High, is capable of forcing Ouryu back onto the ground once he flies into the air.

Historical Information

In Chinese mythology, Huang Long (which means "Yellow Dragon") was said to be a hornless dragon that emerged from the river Luo to present the emperor Fu Xi with the elements of writing.

Said to be among the five beasts denoted in the Chinese Five Element system, along with Bai Hu (see Byakko), Xuan Wu (see Genbu), Zhu Que (see Suzaku), and Qing Long (see Seiryu), it represented the Earth element and acted as the central element.

While there is no central Element in the Japanese version of the Element system, the dragon Ouryu is said to be the japanese counterpart of Huang Long.
