Should we really have that quote up there? It's his only one, but it doesn't really show anything about his character. He's not notable for being tired, he's notable as Bowser's pet dragon and for being awesome.

First of all, the quote is needed to state that the character speaks in Mario's language without using overly long wording nobody wants to read to state that he speaks intelligibly and what he says whern you speak to him; I'll put it in a quotes section, but I think you're getting the character a bit wrong: if you read the brochure of Crumbleden (or what is written here), you'll see that there much more to this dragon than serving Bowser (which by the way he doesn't do anymore once beaten, as he never puts Bowser's crown back on his head after being beaten).--Mister Wu (talk) 17:44, 28 October 2017 (EDT)


I feel as though the name Lord of Lightning is a better choice to use than Ruined Dragon, as the former is used in the literal game it appears in, while the latter is only in the Prima guide which has made mistakes before. ~ Qyzxf (talk)

Prima guides are officially licensed. The Ruined Dragon is the official name, Lord of Lightning could just be a title. – Owencrazyboy9 (talk) 20:00, 29 October 2017 (EDT)
The Nintendo Power guides have made mistakes before too. That's hardly a good reason to entirely discount them. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 20:10, 29 October 2017 (EDT)
Our Bowser article isn't called "King of Koopa." It seems to really just be a title. But then again, "Ruined Dragon" also kinda sounds like one..... Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:37, 29 October 2017 (EDT)
Lord of Lightning honestly sounds like a real name to me. If it's a title, Ruined Dragon could be too. Ruined Dragon sounds like a name Prima made up for lack of an official name (despite there being one).

Apparently, "Ruined Dragon" is the name used on the music list (according to one user on the Discord). Two sources vs. one. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 22:40, 4 November 2017 (EDT)
Did said user provide a source? If so, yes. Two-vs-one is a clear win.

He didn't provide an image, but I don't see a reason to doubt him. Still, having another user confirm it would be helpful. Hello, I'm Time Turner. 22:45, 4 November 2017 (EDT)
The battle music is indeed called "Ruined Dragon Battle". I'd upload an image if I knew how to upload Switch screenshots. PMTTYD Dark Bones.pngSig.png 22:57, 4 November 2017 (EDT)
