If you want to complete your Magicite collection and finish all of the side quests in Final Fantasy VI, you’re going to need to find the eight ancient dragons in the World of Ruin after the events of The Floating Continent. Though some of them can be a bit harder to track down in the game’s massive dungeons, the good news is that Final Fantasy VI Pixel Remaster makes it easier on you than ever.
By turning off encounters, you can explore every dungeon to your heart’s content without the annoyance of regular random encounters. Furthermore, if any of these dragons are giving you any trouble in particular, you can use the gil boost to buy better equipment or the experience boost to level up your characters and make them more formidable. Also, these may be optional Final Fantasy bosses, but you’ll find that they’re nowhere near as tough as the ones from later games in the series.
Also, none of these optional bosses are missable, even if you’ve already entered Kefka’s Tower at the end of the game. However, some of these dragons are actually located in Kefka’s Tower, and with that in mind, you may want to track those two down last and save yourself a trip. Either way, you’ll find the names and locations of all eight dragons listed conveniently for you below.
