Dragons (called a Serpent in a promotional Toys "R" Us advertisement[1]) are friendly characters that appear only in Yoshi's Story. They serve as platforms that a Yoshi must ride on in order to traverse certain levels. They are present in only two stages. The first, a green dragon, is seen during the third part of Stage 3-1: Cloud Cruising. When jumped on, the creature will start flying across the air. It acts merely as a moving platform. The second, a red dragon, is later seen in Stage 6-4: Magma Castle. This dragon acts similarly to its green equivalent, but it swims in lava rather than flying in air.

Profiles and statistics[edit]

  • Message Block information for the red Dragon: This dragon is your friend. He'll carry you across the lava sea.
  • Shogakukan guide: 広い空も溶岩の海もス〜イスイ。背 中に乗れば、どこへだって行けそう。

The wide sky and the sea of lava are both amazing. If you ride on their back, you can go anywhere you want to go.[2]

  • Message Block information for the green Dragon (set to German): Drachenritt Er sieht böse aus, ist aber ein netter Kerl, Reite auf ihm. Große Höhe macht ihm nichts aus, er ist völlig schwindelfrei. (Dragon ride He looks evil, but he's a nice guy, ride him. Great height does not bother him, he is completely free from giddiness.)
