Top Ten Fictional Dragons of All Time

Dragons are the most awesome creatures ever thought of and these are the strongest, coolest, and most notable.

The Top Ten

1 Smaug (The Hobbit) Smaug is a fictional character and the primary antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit.

He is truly diabolical and blood thirsty. He destroyed an entire kingdom, killing thousands of its people, and took all of its treasures for himself. He lied down on his treasure for so long that some of it fused in his skin protecting his soft underbelly (well most of it). When even the tiniest this is taken from him, he flips out and goes to destroy another kingdom (but he dies if you don't know the story. In addition he can talk and has an advance knowledge of Middle Earth. He truly is as great as the old tales say.

One of the most well-portrayed dragons in fantasy. Smaug manages to capture the grace, power, and cunning of a dragon in a way that very few in fiction have ever matched. While not the most powerful on this list, none on it match the same level or mixture of cruel intelligence, unstoppable primordial power, and elemental grace as Smaug has in his appearances, both in book and film.

I don't thing Smaug should be this high on the list. Since he is one of the smallest of the winged fire drakes.

One of the biggest on here. Could eat Drogon for breakfast and literally stomp on a lot of the others.

2 Toothless (How to Train your Dragon)

In the beginning of the movie Toothless is attacking Vikings and eating their sheep. He has no motives for attacking them other than to eat or survive. He's not good or bad he's a wild animal trying to survive. Like an animal he can be tamed. After being around Hiccup who's not trying to kill him, he is docile and puppy-like which is something you don't see in most dragons.

I really liked the How To Train Your Dragon movies.

Toothless is amazing I wish I had him as a friend!

He could beat Smaug

3 Spyro (Spyro the Dragon)

I think mega ram spyro should be one of the top ten dragons

I love this dragon he rocks

He deserves this

Unsurprising from you Keyson!

4 Alduin (Skyrim)

I put Alduin here simply because he is badass. He is king of the race of Dragons and is the most powerful of them. He couldn't be killed but was instead sealed along with his race when he threatened to destroy Tameriel. He could only be killed by the dragonborn, but when you think about it; if he did not attack that village in the beginning of the game, your character would be executed and no one could stop him.

He Could Rip Toothless's Soul Out With His Voice, and if Smaug would see him do this He would have a Fear-Stroke.

Alduin is the Embodiment of the End of All Creation.

Alduin is the best

5 Ancalagon the Black (Lord of the Rings)

He is the biggest and the greatest dragon that has ever roamed Middle Dearth. He was created as Morgoth's last resort, and he push back the army of Gondolin back to Thangorodrim. And then when he died, he crushed three of its peaks.

A massive black dragon who's wings would blot out the sun and who's fire was hot enough to melt all the rings exept the One Ring. He was so massive that when Eärendil killed him the force of his fall combined with his size destroyed an artificial mountain range.

The greatest dragon the world has ever known in the Tolkien universe. Way more powerful than little old Smaug

It took the force of say 1000000000 suns thrown at him to destroy him- forget Godzilla
Here’s a little scenario
Hungarian horntail: Fear me!
Smaug: Haha I am fire. I am death.
Ghidorah: How cute.
(Gets squished)
Ancalagon: Oops! I just stood on an ant
Midgard serpent: More like an ant stood on a germ
(The entire galaxy gets eaten)
Super Shelton: m This galaxy was far tastier than the previous one

6 Shenron (Dragon Ball) Shenron is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

He can grant nearly any wish I think I would go with shenron!

Both Haku and Shenron look very similar to each other.

7 Cynder (The Legend of Spyro)
8 Balerion the Black Dread (A Song of Ice and Fire)

Hello this is the creator of this list. There are many dragons I know, but I only started this list with the five dragons that have made huge impact on me. Also I have not seen Game of Thrones, because I have basic cable which does not provide me with HBO. I do hope to see it one day for I have heard many great things about it.

Are you serious? Not even on the list? His Jaws were large enough to swallow mammoths whole, his teeth the size of swords, and when he flew overhead, entire cities were covered by his shadow.

Yes he should be on the list, since in the book it mentions that his fire was hot enough to melt a man inside their armour.

9 Mushu (Mulan)

I owe myself this one, hands down one of my favorite characters of all time!

10 Enderdragon (Minecraft)

This is a very unique dragon. It's the only boss in a game that has no story or objective. Yet it is a boss in a dimension called The End and shows you the credits once you've killed it. To me it there just to be there so the players can create their own story surrounding it.

The Newcomers

? Discord (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) Discord, also known as the Spirit of Disharmony, is a former-antagonist-turned-supporting-protagonist in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
? Venoct (Yo-Kai Watch)

The Contenders

11 Haku (Spirited Away)
12 Falkor (The Neverending Story)
13 Falcor (NES)

I only watched this movie once so I don't have much to say. Falcor is a different dragon. He doesn't ransack kingdoms. Instead he is a wise, good spirited creature who helps others.

14 Norberta (Harry Potter)
15 Super Shenron (Dragon Ball)

He's omnipotent

16 King Ghidorah (Godzilla) King Ghidorah is Godzilla's Greatest Enemy of all times since 1964's Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster.

It's a Giant three headed alien space dragon that causes electric storms whenever it flies around and shoots gravity beams out of its heads whats there not to like about it?

Far grander than all others

Literally hiter

17 Igneel (Fairy Tail)

Name one more dragon, who could love his adopted son enough, that he would disappear from his life so that he can stay human, find family, and make friends. Had it not been for him, so much would've been different

His title is the blaze dragon king, he took on the apocalypse dragon while half dead and nearly won, and he raised the main character. And he looks badass.

He is greatest and bravest dragon ever to live

The best dragon ever!

18 Elliot (Pete's Dragon)
19 Nicol Bolas (Magic the Gathering)

Nicol Bolas in his prime may be the most powerful dragon in fiction. He is incredibly smart and diabolical and he is the first or second most powerful planeswalker in the Multiverse. He dominates entire universes, and at his strongest his mere presence is enough to destroy an entire plane (basically a universe) unless he anchors himself to it. He is more than 25,000 years old, and has complete mastery over the most powerful spells in MTG. His hax are incredible, as he can shoot instant death spells and travel to any time period he wants. His feats include defeating planeswalker Leshrac in a duel, defeating a demonic leviathan in a month long battle and absorbing its power, accidentally creating a hole in time during said battle, winning a war between all the Elder Dragons, creating the Infinite Consortium, bringing the five shards of the plane Alara together and absorbing their combined mana, closing the hole in time he created, engineering the release of world-eating creatures called ...more

Nicol Bolas is an awesome dragon. He is the most powerful being in the mtg multiverse and is a wizard.

Nicol bolas in his prime. he is omnipotent.

20 Hungarian Horntail (Harry Potter)
21 Saphira (Inheritance Cycle)

Also, Saphira has the power of other dragons' souls, through Eragon's Eldunari. And because they are spellbound partners, Saphira knows the name of the ancient language ( the language of magic)

Magic. Intelligence. Immortality and forever growing. Fire. Mind control. What more do you need.

I love the Inheritance Cycle

22 Dragon (Shrek)
23 Deathwing (Warcraft)

Deathwing the Destroyer, formerly known as Neltharion the Earth-Warder, was one of the five Dragon Aspects and leader of the black dragonflight. Thousands of years ago, Neltharion was empowered by the Titans with dominion over the earth and the deep places of Azeroth. However, driven mad by the Old Gods, he turned against the other Aspects during the War of the Ancients. Among both mortals and dragons his name became one whispered with a feeling of fear and contempt.

24 Blue-Eyes White Dragon (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
25 Grim Matchstick (Cuphead)
