“The unholy offspring of lightning and death itself" 

"Breathing intense, hot flames, it can melt almost anything. Its breath inflicts terrible pain on enemies.”

“What is your wish?”

“I don’t envy the one who gets the Horntail. Vicious thing. Its back end’s as dangerous as its front.”

“The beast’s scales had turned pale and flaky during its long incarceration under the ground; its eyes were milkily pink; Its great spiked wings, folded close to its body, would have filled the chamber if it spread them.”

“And the Scrolls have foretold, of black wings in the cold, That when brothers wage war come unfurled! Alduin, Bane of Kings, ancient shadow unbound, With a hunger to swallow the world!”

“I would name them all for those the gods have taken. The green one shall be Rhaegal, for my valiant brother who died on the green banks of the Trident. The cream-and-gold I call Viserion. Viserys was cruel and weak and frightened, yet he was my brother still. His dragon will do what he could not.”

“And the black beast? Asked Ser Jorah Mormont.”
“The black” she said “is Drogon”

“I am fire. I am death”

“ Luckdragons are creatures of air, warmth, and pure joy. Despite their great size, they are as light as a summer cloud, and consequently need no wings for flying. They swim in the air of heaven as fish swim in water. Seen from the earth, they look like slow lightning flashes. The most amazing thing about them is their song.“

“Spyro’s main attacks consist of ramming his opponents with his long horns or breathing fire at them.”

“The princess shall indeed grow in grace and beauty, beloved by all who know her. But… before the sun sets on her 16th birthday she shall prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and die!”

“Can’t catch me, Fifi!”

“My real name is Nigihayami Kohaku Nushi.“

"They were the ultimate firebenders. And if you could conquer one, your firebending talents would become legendary and you’d earn the honorary title, Dragon. The last great dragon was conquered long before I was born, by my uncle.”

“Dragons are giant winged, fire-breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore.”

This is Norbert. He is the snobbiest reptile to ever exist.
His favorite food in the world is raspberries and he will literally try to eat anything that is red.
A blanket, painted fingernails, absolutely anything. If his daily chopped salad doesn’t have raspberries in it, he looks at it angrily.
Dead ass stares it down in disgust like the ungrateful little shit he is.
I love this mother fucker.

Norwegian Ridgeback

Native, unsurprisingly, to Norway, the Norwegian Ridgeback is one of the more vicious breeds of dragon. Closely resembling the Hungarian Horntail in appearance, it can be told apart by the presence of back ridges rather than a horned tail. 

While not quite as vicious as the Hungarian Horntail it is no less dangerous, as it is venomous and able to breathe flame much earlier than any other breed of Dragon (usually between its first and third month a hatchling will start to breathe flame). Female Ridgebacks are known to be more ferocious than the males, especially when protecting their eggs, which are an almost glossy black.

Unusually for dragons it is known to enjoy eating water mammals, although it will settle on almost any large mammal available if it is there.
