Main article: Jono 

Elder is a boss enemy that appears in Breath of Fire III. It is the dragon form of Jono, the elder of Dragnier Village, where the remaining members of the Dragon Clan reside. Seeking information about the Dragon Clan's genocide at the hands of Myria, Ryu is sent to meet the elder. The Elder explains that Myria's teaching are founded upon an incorrect fear of their people. As a result, he keeps the Dragon Clan's true power hidden behind the barrier encompassing his room, where it can't be detected by Myria or her agent. He tells Ryu that he must defeat him in order to prove that he is prepared to claim the power as his own.

When Jono is defeated, he leaves behind the Infinity gene, which grants access to Ryu's Kaiser form.

Strategy[]

Ryu is unable to use his Brood powers in this fight, so the player may need a different strategy. Have Ryu buff the party with Shield as much as possible and heal when necessary. If the player had Bunyan and Meryleep as Masters long enough to learn Focus and Shadowwalk, Ryu can use both together to help deal some heavy damage.

If Nina is used in this battle and you apprenticed with Mygas and Emitai long enough, give her Meditation and Mind Sword to help her deal damage. Other magic along with Meditation work just as well if you don't have Mind Sword.

If Momo is used in this battle, have her use Might to help buff Ryu and heal when necessary. If Rei is used in this battle, have him steal from the Elder and buff the party with Speed. If Ryu or another party member has Influence as a skill, have Rei turn into the Weretiger and use Influence throughout the party to lower the chance/remove the risk of him attacking a party member. Garr and Peco can also be used for tanking and combat support.

Every three turns, the Elder will waste a turn by using Bad Back, which gives the party a turn to heal or buff themselves or attack the Elder. Every other turn, the Elder will mostly attack the party with fire magic which will deal moderate damage, as well as Double Blow, which deals 120-250 damage on average depending on the target's defense stat.
