How to beat the Geji Dragon in Sand Land

It's a car chase, but... Sand dragons.

Sand Land players will meet their first Geji Dragon within the first 10 minutes of the game, and even in story/easy mode, they're annoying little (big) things to deal with. Beating the Geji Dragon requires a little skill and a lot of timing, it can be more frustrating to outrun than you'd think.

How to complete the 'Escape the Geji Dragon' quest in Sand Land

Although it can be quite intimidating to have a huge creature slinking after you while you drive away as fast as possible, the Geji Dragon can be beaten by players of any skill. Even if this is your first action RPG, all you need is some decent reflexes and the ability to count to three.

The Geji Dragon will not attack you before it goes underground, so you don't need to worry about causing any damage to your vehicle and blowing up before you've had a chance to try this technique.

When the chase starts, immediately drive over to either the far left or the far right of the path. This will allow you to properly dodge the Sand Land Geji Dragon when it's getting ready to strike.

You need to wait for the Geji Dragon to dive underground. Before then, you're just driving recklessly and distracting yourself. Once it dives to go underground, you'll see a sand cloud.

Once the sand cloud appears, count to three (not a slow three like one Mississippi, etc., just "1, 2, 3, GO"), and then swerve to the other side of the road as quickly as you can. In doing so, the Sand Land Geji Dragon will have popped up around the middle of the road, and you'll be safe on the other side.

It might take a couple of tries to get the timing down, but it worked for me and I managed to get through this quest without getting hit more than a couple of times. Don't react too fast or you're going to get hit anyway!

What is the Sand Land Geji Dragon?

The Sand Land Geji Dragon is a giant worm-like creature that towers above those it is hunting. It attacks in its own territory by chasing its prey and diving underground to hit them from below.

It has a strange appearance, almost pink in color, with two hand-like appendages on either side of its body. It's covered in dark spikes, has sharp teeth, and small eyes.

Once you've beaten the Geji Dragon (well, Rao does it, really), you'll enter another cut-screen and then find yourself at a rest point where you can explore, open some chests, and talk to a sketchy traveling merchant who rides a blue raptor.
