He additionally boasts four large health bars, strong magic, and a mix of offensive and defensive abilities that make him even more difficult to take down. He is comparatively weak to physical attacks, owing to his low defense, though his ability Ancient Dragonskin combined with his high avoid can still make him difficult to take down.

  • Zooming in on the Lord of the Desert's battle model will show its Crest Stone between its horns. Unlike other Crest Stones that can be seen on monster models, however, the one on the Lord of the Desert is too faded to discern a Crest or any text on it. This fading is not present in its concept art, which shows that it is engraved with "The Magician" and "I", likely in reference to the Tarot card The Magician.
