The great dragon is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest game series.

Characteristics

Great dragons are adequately described by their name: they are large dragons with wings, a long tail, horns, and golden scales that add up to make a very grand-looking creature. Due to some similarity in coloration and head shape, some fans theorize that these wondrous wyrms are the adult stage of the Small fry.

The power of the great dragon is as impressive as its looks. They are normally in command of some of the most potent breath attacks there are, have excellent strength, and tend to resist many non-physical attacks. Due to this, great dragons aren't normally seen until the player nears the end of the games they appear in.

Main game appearances

Dragon Quest V

Great Dragons appear for the first time, though they are not encountered until the player reaches Nadiria, essentially right before the end of the game. They can be incredibly threatening monsters, able to breath powerful fire breath, deliver might physical blows, and even call in other Great Dragons. Lucky players might occasionally recruit a Great Dragon, bringing the monster's power over to their side.
