Dragons are a race of mythological reptiles in the real world which have appeared as real creatures throughout the Mario series as either enemies, bosses, allies or gameplay elements. They also made numerous appearances as bosses in Mario RPG games such as Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, the Paper Mario series and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bowser is often mistaken for a dragon, likely due to the fact that he breathes fire.
  • Yoshi, a dinosaur, is also mistaken for a dragon. However, he has been known to transform into a winged, fire-breathing creature known as the "Super Dragon" in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
