chinese dragons are the best dragons

the dragon emojis of emojipedia, ranked

samsung: this dragon is my best friend. will protect her with my life. just trying to share the magic orb. cute whiskers, cute horns, cute tail. i love her


emoji one: simple design, excellent execution. complete with adorable tongue and beard. a magnificent beast.

facebook: fierce, majestic flying serpent. a poufy tail, a lovely orange mane, long, flowing whiskers. this girl could fly away with my heart, and also a chinese river. 

microsoft: lovely orange fans. he’s still growing and learning, but he’ll get there. steps on his own tail sometimes. doing his best.

emojidex: old dragon but good dragon. fur instead of scales gives points for uniqueness, as do the interesting horns, but our old guy seems to be in an uncomfortable position.

messenger: this dragon enjoys reading about history. seems to be missing her back feet. also could do with some core excersizes, as her head seems to be a tad big for her body. she has many passions, and gets easily distracted.

apple: while the design is there, the actual execution seems to have gone a bit off. tail is too twisted to be comfy, and the modeling is pretty badly done. greedy for the orb; loses points for unwillingness to share.

mozilla: this dragon is very confused, but she’s at least trying to share the orb. two arms on one side?

HTC: only dragon on the list with wings, however, this dragon is not only blind but seems to have a dysfunctional single foot and a stub tail. and a leaf for an ear.

twitter: designer seems to have a vague understanding of how hands work. the poor dragon’s head is far too big for his body.

LG: seems in theory a good design, but in reality, this dragon is fucking ugly.

google: basic misunderstanding of limbs and linework. an revolting mess.

Unlike many other dragons found through out the world the Chinese Long and the Japanese Ryu are benevolent yet powerful celestial beings. Protectorates, bringers of rain and good fortune their effigies are regularly seen in Buddhist, Shinto and Daoist structures.
They are just all around the best of the dragon world in my opinion.
