Zombie Dragon is essentially a weaker version of Zombie Hydra that appears in Epic Battle Fantasy 2 and 4 as it does not have some of Hydra's powerful properties and cannot revive fellow heads, yet without a doubt it is still a strong adversary.
The Zombie Dragon closely resembles his living counterparts but is completely skeletal. It has a long neck, although the length is unknown it is at least as long as the battlefield. It's tail is also lengthy and strikes very quickly. No body can be observed in combat but it likely does not has one based on its overworld model. It's overworld sprite is only it's spine going down to it's tail in a snake-like appearance. It has some sort of way to produce sound but due to its tissueless nature this is likely magical. The entire beast likely is. It is either the reanimated bones of a dragon or summoned from nothing, either way by the power or Akron. There are very few of them in existence and all of them appear only in the Rift created by Akron's powers. They appear to have magical means of sight at least and can strike with great precision despite having no apparent sensory organs. In fact everything it does is reliant on the magic and when it the magic fails (the dragon dies) the bones collapse in a lifeless heap.
In battle a Zombie Dragon will either reach forward with its long neck and bite with sharp teeth, lash out with a bony tail or scream to invoke a reaper or poison one target. The bite and tail jab deal reasonable physical damage and the tail pushes the target off-screen for a second. The reaper is called when the dragon roars and attempts to strike one enemy for an instant kill but has low accuracy. While its poisonous attack makes a clouds of noxious gas erupt from the ground and afflict a single target.
The Zombie Dragon uses Poison and Dark elemental attacks, but also has non-elemental physical attacks as well as a spell that inflicts Death status.
Autolife can prove useful if you do not have Death resistance.
It is weak to Holy and Fire attacks, so skills such as Bullet Hell, Seiken, Judgement and Eruption will prove effective against it.

By the time you face the Zombie Dragon, you should be at least level 29-30, so having everything at level 5 should be no problem at this point.
