The Dragoon is a legendary air ride machine from Kirby Air Ride, appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Broken into three parts, the players have to collect Dragoon Part A, the nosecone, Dragoon Part B, the hull, and Dragoon Part C, the tail. The Smash Ball cannot coexist with all three of the Dragoon parts in play. Once the Smash Ball is used up while one or two Dragoon parts are in play, the remaining part(s) can be allowed to appear. Any player can collect any of the three parts of the ship, but when one player has all three at the same time, they can use it to crash into the stage, knocking out all players who are hit by the Dragoon. When players are damaged while holding the Dragoon parts, they may lose a part, meaning that an opponent can easily snag a lost part. The Dragoon parts don't always appear in every single match. When playing a team battle in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, unlike in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, if both players on a team collect all three Dragoon parts, the player who collected the final piece for their team is able to use the Dragoon.

Anyone hit by the Dragoon almost always are KO'd, but certain factors (such as walls, metallic, invincibility, etc.) might prevent the targets from getting KO'd.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Dragoon also appears as a Spirit.

Role in the Subspace Emissary[edit]

In the Subspace Emissary (the Super Smash Bros. Brawl story mode), the Dragoon appears once, and acts similar to the Warp Star (as Kirby's vehicle). In the scene when Ganondorf and Bowser just blew up the Halberd, after the explosion happens, almost all of the heroes of the game arrive in their ships (Fox McCloud in his Arwing, Samus in her ship, Olimar in his ship, and everyone else in Captain Falcon's ship). They all continue shooting the enemy ship and the enemy's ship also fires back. However, the enemy's ship is so large that the aircrafts do not do much damage to the large ship. Just when it seems the heroes are losing, Kirby comes flying in on the Dragoon and flies straight at the ship's cannon. He flies through it, destroying the cannon in an explosion. The other ships then keep firing at the ship and soon, the whole ship is on flames. However, Ganondorf and Bowser leave into the Subspace right before the whole ship explodes.

Name Image Game Description
Dragoon BrawlTrophy491.png GCN Kirby Air Ride An attack-capable Air Ride machine you can assemble by combining parts A, B, and C. You can knock off parts held by foes in combat, so stealing parts is something that's sure to occur. In Kirby Air Ride, you control legendary machines, but the Dragoon not only towers above all others in terms of speed, it is also able to fly.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U[edit]
