The Red Dragon's fireball has no piercing damage but why knock down a devil by one shot.
It does not piercing the player's fireball and it does not piercing even with attacks of enemy attributes such as Goblin Bomber.
So is not this incorrect behavior?

レッドドラゴンのファイアーボールには貫通が付いていないのになぜかデビルを1発で倒すんだ
プレイヤーのファイアーボールは貫通せずゴブリンボンバー等の敵属性の攻撃でも貫通しない
だからこれは誤った動作ではないか?

I think it's intended. It also one-shots armored skeletons and riders and anything else that can't be killed without piercing.

It doesn’t one-shot riders that are facing the dragon:

.

What happens here is not piercing damage. It’s just an artifact of how the fireball is processed. It hits the first square (empty), then hits the second square (knocks the rider off its horse and back to the third square), then hits the third square (hits the rider again, knocking off its shield).

The same thing happens with firepigs, but not with player fireballs, for some reason.
