"Dragons aren't real."
"Why would you think that?"
Claire Temple and Davos[src]

The Dragons are an ancient race of mystical creatures that exist in different worlds. Dragons of K'un-Lun like Shou-Lao possess an incredible amount of Chi and their bones were the primary ingredient of the Steel Serpent drug[1] and of the Resurrection Elixir, a regenerative substance granting immortality and created by the five founders of the Hand. A dragon known as the Fire Dragon, who was loyal to Surtur, existed in Muspelheim. Dragons of Ta Lo include the Great Protector.



"These creatures once roamed the green valleys of my home."
Madame Gao[src]

The dragons of K'un-Lun once lived in the dimension, with the ability to fly and live freely.[2] Over the years, Shou-Lao remained the only dragon living in the city, using his abilities to provide the one who defeats him the power of the Iron Fist.[3]

Ever since they were banished from K'un-Lun, the five leaders of the Hand excavated holes across the Earth where the dead dragon bones were buried in order to use them for their Elixir. For centuries, their modus operandi caused the destruction of several cities, and they were believed to have caused the destruction of Pompeii in 79 A.D. and the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.[4]

The Hand discovered a new dragon skeleton under the foundations of New York City, but an Iron Fist sealed the remains with his powers and prevented the collapse of the city. Only accessible by an individual gifted with the Iron Fist, the Hand intended to manipulate Danny Rand to unlock the bones, but they were stopped by the Defenders.[2]


The Fire Dragon chases Thor

Muspelheim was home to a dragon known as the Fire Dragon who was chained in the depths of the realm. In 2017, the dragon broke free from his bonds after Thor killed Surtur and chased after Thor. However, the dragon was killed after getting decapitated by the Bifrost Bridge.[5]

Ta Lo

Dragons are among the mythical creatures that inhabit the multiversal dimension of Ta Lo, with the most notable of them being the Great Protector who aided the humans of Ta Lo in battling and imprisoning the Dweller-in-Darkness and the Soul Eaters behind the Dark Gates. The Great Protector then gifted the humans of Ta Lo dragon scales to enhance their weapons and armor, as well as the ability to manipulate air. The Great Protector served as an ally and protector to the humans of Ta Lo.

The Great Protector battles the Dweller-in-Darkness

In 2024, the Dweller-in-Darkness and the Soul Eaters were inadvertently freed by Xu Wenwu, the leader of the Ten Rings. This prompted the Great Protector to battle and defeat her old enemy with the aid of Shang-Chi and Xu Xialing.[6]

Characteristic Traits

Dragons have the ability to fly and live freely around their environment. These massive mystical creatures possess reptilian traits such as impervious scales and a dense bone structure. The inhabitants of Ta Lo coat and enhance their weapons and armor with dragon scales, since they are the only known material that can effectively combat the Dweller-in-Darkness and the Soul Eaters.
