Seemingly a fully-grown Ceadeus, Goldbeard Ceadeus is of a darker colouring, having developed a lustrous golden hide and darker brown underbelly, with a more pronounced mane. Unlike the juvenile Ceadeus, both of its horns are large and overgrown, overtaking its remaining eye. In addition, both horns can be partially cut off which yields a total of four carves. Goldbeard Ceadeus is capable of firing a current beam that can be swept from right to left, in addition to the usual vertical attack. It is also known to quickly swim to the top of the ruins, so as to fire a sweeping current beam which affects a wide area.
