First Appearance Super Mario 3D Land (2011)

Draglets are enemies appearing in Super Mario 3D Land. They're small, blue dragons with small purple bat-like wings and pink spikes going down their back. Draglets have two fangs and their eyes have dash-like pupils instead of circular ones. They bear a slight resemblance to Eeries, Rexes, Dino-Torches, and also Yoshis' heads.

History[edit]

Super Mario 3D Land[edit]

Mario, encountering a Draglet.

Draglets make their first appearance in Super Mario 3D Land. They are found in the castle stages of the game and stay in one spot. If they spot Mario or Luigi, they will attack them by shooting a single Fireball at them. Draglets make a distinct sound before shooting a Fireball, indicating that its attack is coming. Draglets can easily be defeated by jumping on them, swinging Tanooki Mario's tail at them, or with a projectile such as a Fireball or Boomerang.

They also appear briefly when Mario is entering World 8 for the first time.
