Neo Shinryu is one of the new superbosses created for the bonus dungeon in Final Fantasy V Advance.


Neo Shinryu starts off with Mighty Guard, which can be Dispelled. After that, he will use Ice Storm, Tidal Wave, Curse (inflicts several negative status effects), Lightning, Breath Wing (the last two of which remove 25% of everyone's max HP), Earthquake, Blaze, Poison Breath (inflicts Poison), Zombie Powder (inflicts Zombie), White Hole (inflicts Death and Petrify), Doom, and Almagest. Almagest is Holy-elemental, meaning you will be hard-pressed to find something that can even nullify it. The Force Shield dropped by Omega Mk.II works, as does an occasional Aegis Shield block (33% chance).

Once he is killed, he will doublecast Giga Flare and Meteor on the party, which may still kill them. However, it is not much of a threat, as if it posesses very weak Magic offenses. Nevertheless, it is suggested to have a person with !Hide so as to survive this last kamikaze attack.

An alternative to using the Dragon Spear is to use the Apollo's Harp, which will do 9,999 to Neo Shinryu if it successfully hits.

Neo Shinryu has two hidden targets, responsible for his so-called "high miss rate". These absorb multitarget attacks as well as !Rapid Fire, and cannot be killed. That means you should use single target attacks instead, preferably magical in nature. Lv3 Flare always hits if you have adjusted his level to a number divisible by three, and deals high damage for a low MP cost. Single target magic attacks without a hit rate (Firaga/Blizzaga/Thundaga/Flare etc.) will hit regardless, as long as they are not multitargeted.

Also note that despite what the Bestiary says, Neo Shinryu is vulnerable to Old, though it may take a few tries before it hits.
