The darksteel dragon is a Superboss who appears in Dragon Quest VIII. It is the fifth dragon fought in the Dragonvian Trials and is one of the more challenging ones due to it's resistance to most attacks.
Darksteel Dragon is similar in appearance to the other dragons, though it's black and red in colour and has a metallic sheen to it.

Unlike the Dragovian Lord's other forms, Darksteel Dragon takes very little damage, much like the Metal Slime family. As such, it's got far less HP than the other dragons and actually has the least HP in the final Dragovian Trial due to all the dragons having their HP halved.
