"The solar guardians are angry!"

The Solar Dragon is a War Mode Post-Earth Lord boss. The Solar Dragon is a sun-themed powerful dragon that can be summoned in the Jungle. He is stronger than the Lunar Dragon. The Solar Dragon can be summoned at day and night. He is summoned by using Dragon Bait. When summoned, the screen will turn dark orange and the dragon will appear. He is the solar counterpart to the Lunar Dragon. This boss is unpredictable at times. He will quickly swipe the player at full speed. He will summon Solarnadoes that inflict Scorching. The solarnadoes deal 3000 damage and it will shoot Sun Balls that deal contact damage to the player. Try to be speedy. The Solar Dragon also breathes fire at the player. The Solar Dragon's fiery breath deals 1000 damage and inflicts Scorching debuff. The Solar Dragon can use Duke Moltron Al and his own Al. He can spit out Sun Balls just like the Solarnadoes do. The Sun Balls can destroy blocks. He is very insane. The Solar Dragon can spin around two times and then rams the player at full speed. After he is done ramming the player, The Solar Dragon will stop for 5 seconds and lay 8 eggs. Eggs laid by the Solar Dragon will hatch in 10 seconds. Once the eggs are hatched, There will be Nature Destroyers coming out of the eggs. The Solar Dragon also summons his minions. His minions are named Nature Destroyer(s). His minions can deal up to 620 damage. He has 850,000,000 Heart HP. (900,000,000 Heart in Expert Mode!) (950,000,000 Heart in Death Mode!!!) He also teleports and becomes invisible to confuse the player. This effect only lasts for 10 seconds. The Solar Dragon has a chance of spawning 15 minions. If you get near the dragon, He will breathe fire towards the player, dealing huge damage. You have to be super careful! His attacks are very powerful. The Solar Dragon can be destructible towards your spawn point. The blocks are destroyed by Sun Balls. He whips his tail at the player, dealing contact damage to the player. He also uses his alternate attacks to summon his minions (rare). He makes a move by ramming the player in a straight line. However, If you use the Meowmere, The cats fired by the Meowmere will bounce back to the player, dealing massive damage to the player. First of all, He does solar attacks, Then fire attacks and then he uses both attacks quickly. Once you use the wrong weapon, Such as the Solar Eruption or the Daybreak, The Solar Dragon is immune to damage from any weapon for 12 seconds. While that effect is active, The dragon will still deal damage to the player, No matter how worse the effect is. Once that effect is over, The Solar Dragon will continue to breathe fire at the player. Once the dragon's health falls down to 40,000,000, He will become enraged, doubling most of his stats. He will turn red. He will spawn more Solarnadoes and he will spit more Sun Balls. The Sun Balls deal 1500 damage. The Solar Dragon will become a bit bigger. He will use his fiery breath for an extended time. He will start shooting Solar Flares. The Solar Dragon will go a bit faster. Once the Solar Dragon's health falls down to 700,000, He will turn dark red. His defence will be extended and he will be a bit stronger. He will shoot more Solar Flares. Once his health reduces to 0, He will regenerate 2,000,000 health back. The Solar Dragon will get more angrier. He will start shooting 10 Solar Flares at once. When his health is at 0 again, He will get defeated and The Solar Dragon will explode in 3 seconds. You have 3 seconds to run away. Once the 3 seconds is done, The Solar Dragon will explode in to 12 Solar Flares. Once defeated, a message will start appearing at the bottom-left corner of the screen saying "The solar guardians are angry!" and he will drop the extreme solar-related items. The Solar Dragon is much worse in Expert Mode! (Even more worse and hellish in Death Mode!!!)

Notes

  • The Solar Dragon is another hard boss.
  • He could be intended to be beaten after Earth Lord.
  • When it's first spawned, It starts off as ramming the player at full speed.
  • When the Solar Dragon starts to enrage, He will shoot 2-3 Solar Flares at once.
  • He breathes fire at the player when the player is too close to the dragon or when the player stops/continues attacking the dragon or other.
  • The Solar Dragon can summon up to three Solarnadoes at once.
  • Once his health falls down to 2,000,000, He will start to enrage a little bit.
  • You are recommended to use the Sun Immunity Potion. The player will be immune to On Fire!, Scorching and Solar Fried!. You are also recommended to use a weapon that deals 2000/3000 damage or higher or a magic weapon that deals extreme massive damage. The magic weapon you should use is Life Devourer. Since the Life Devourer deals extremely massive damage. This weapon is a really good alternative against him.
  • Another really good alternative against him is The super legendary Copycat Meowmere, Since this sword deals 50,000 damage. But that's if you have beaten Talking Ginger
