The following section will explain each of the fictional dragons featured in the Canadian animated series Dragon Booster. This also includes dragons from which are not common within the show, as you may see them only in a few episodes. This section will provide a general overview of each particular dragon, as well as get into more specifics later on. Along with the information concerning the various dragons in Dragon Booster, it will also discuss various types of gears from which the various dragons can use (if applicable to that particular dragon). Also this section explains each dragon's personality traits and bonds with their riders.
Including Gold and Grey, there are 13 colors of draconium and thirteen classes of dragon that were bred out of the original gold boned dragons. There are five main types which are Gold, Black, Red, Green, and Blue. While each class corresponds to a specific bone color, dragon need not necessarily match up with this paradigm.
Being the dragon of legend, Beau is the most powerful dragon in all of Dragon City and is given immense respect. He is a magnificent dragon and his power knows no bounds. To ride Beau you must show great talent, good skills, moral fibre, bravery and courage. If any of those talents are not present, then Beau will reject you. His rider is Artha Penn.
Beau is a dragon with a bone color of gold draconium. He can mag all draconium gear, can control all Draconian energies, can take on many forms, and can use other draconium energies to make himself more powerful. Beau has a very good sense of humor, tripping and mag-blasting humans and other riders into the air, he often laughs at his little jokes, along with everyone else. And has Lance’s addiction to candy and food. He tends to be sarcastic in his own little way, and is skilled with almost anything. He was once influenced by wraith gear, liquid black draconium, the Furox, and was turned into a wraith again when Artha was controlled by human wraith gear.
Beau has many powers, like wings, a Mag Shield, being able to "fuse" with Dragon Booster (seen in episode 10 "The Lost Track of Doom" only once) and many others.
Beau can be described as a black dragon with gold designs and fins. He can also disguise himself as a blue dragon with a red underbelly and light electric blue stripes, and is reminiscent of a cobra and a panther. Beau runs on four legs, as most of the Dragon City dragons do. His full name "Beaucephalis" is based on the name Bucephalus, which was the name of Alexander the Great's horse.
Moordryd once rode Beau in episode 11 "Pride of the Hero". It was then that Moordryd planted the Furox bonemark in Beau. Beau absorbed it later on.
A Magma-class red draconium dragon, Wyldfyr is built for speed and his human is the tough and spirited Kitt Wonn. Wyldfyr is loyal to his team and his rider, and has a personality and temper similar to Kitt's. He often works with Red Thruster Gear and is quick on the racing tracks. He is also well known for his speed and agility. He excels in sprinting, maneuverability, and intensity.
Wyldfyr is red in color with white spikes on his tail, a streamlined saurian body and large facial spikes. Like most Magma-class dragons, he stands on two legs. Since he leans forward, a large amount of his body mass is toward his flanks, to balance his weight while walking, running, etc. His name is a play on the word Wildfire, which is a quickly-spreading fire.
Wyldfyr is male as stated by Rob Travalino, one of the creators of the Dragon Booster series.
Cyrano is a large, Bull-class green draconium dragon. Cyrano is not a dragon that is built for racing, due to overly large muscles, but is rather built for brute strength and demolition. His human is the technical Parmon Sean. Cyrano seems more calm and less smart than Parm, however, if he starts getting angry, in short: get out of the way. He uses Green Ramming Gear most of the time to add more strength to his demolition skills. Cyrano was also once under the control of the Samurox, and had to absorb blue draconium gear to stabilize the difference between the blue draconium influence and his own green draconium energy. (More on the Samurox below.)
Cyrano is green and has four big, brown hooves, a huge nose, and large shoulders. He is a common heavyweight Bull-class dragon, standing on four legs.
A Psi-class pure black draconium dragon, (she was changed in "Darkness Falls") Decepshun is a dragon to be reckoned with. Her human is Moordryd Paynn, leader of the Dragon Eyes.
Decepshun is fiercely loyal to her crew and her master. She is treated quite kindly by Moordryd, and thus, both have become close as dragon and rider. Decepshun is known to have Green Ramming Gear, White Rappelling Gear and often Black Shadow Gear equipped. At times she can be very feisty, and when Moordryd’s in trouble, will do even the most unpredictable of things to help him out. She is intelligent, quick and powerful, and knows martial arts and Psi.
Decepshun is a slim, dark purple dragon with a lavender purple underbelly and accentuated lips. Like most Dragon City dragons, she stands on four legs. Her name is a play on the word Deception which means to decieve.
Recently due to an accident in "Darkness Falls" with one of Word Paynn's black draconium devices to turn dragon eggs into pure black draconium dragons, Decepshun was mutated to gain the ability to transform into a pure black dragon, in this form she becomes black with glowing purple designs and gains fins on the back of her legs and tail similar to Beau. When Moordryd becomes the Shadow Booster, Decepshun's ability to transform into this pure black state becomes easier to control. But in "The Eye of the Dragon" she absorbed the Vysox bonemark and has developed a complete mind of her own, not completely obeying her master. She may not follow his orders directly from Moordryd, which may be a problem in future episodes if the series were not cancelled.
Fracshun is a young blue draconium Energy-class dragon. His human is Lance Penn, little brother of Artha Penn. Fracshun has similar personality traits to Lance. He is young and energetic, and is loyal to Lance and Penn Racing. Fracshun shares a brotherly bond with Beau as well, and encourages his teammates when they’re in doubt. He works together with his team and will protect Lance when there is any trouble.
Fracshun possesses the same “cute-ness” as Lance does, and is a small blue and orange-colored dragon, also having a cartoon-style dragon tattooed on the side of his hide. He also stands on four legs, and when moving at a "walking" speed, his gait is rather bouncy, like hopping.. His name is a play on the word Fraction, an algabraic term which is a piece of something.
Coershun is a Psi-class black draconium dragon who should not be taken lightly. His human is Cain, co-leader of the Dragon Eyes. Coershun is similar to his rider. He is just as strong and brute as Cain, but also is very timid. He uses intimidation, and is skilled in Psi, martial arts, agility and communication.
Coershun has a less skinny frame than Decepshun does, and has a more elaborate purple and gray design to him. He also walks on four legs. His name is a play on the word Coercion which means to persuade with evil intent.
Phorrj is a Magma-class red draconium dragon and is specialized with fire and heat. His human is Pyrrah, leader of the Dragon Flares crew. Phorrj is difficult to control. He is loyal to Pyrrah, the Dragon Flares, and Pyrrah’s intentions. Phorrj is not as fast and skilled with sprinting as Wyldfyr, but he is skilled at jumping. Phorrj was once possessed by the essence of the Furox, but Beau fought the controlled Phorrj and Pyrrah and removed the Furox bonemark. (More on the Furox below.)
Phorrj has an elaborate red and orange design, with white claws and large facial spikes. He is bipedal and the largest red dragon we've seen so far. His name is a play on the word forge, where the blacksmith made weapons by super heating metal.
Rob Travalino has said on the Dragon Booster fan boards, that Phorrj is actually male.
Brutaris is a large green draconium Bull-class dragon who belongs to Phistus, leader of the Grip of the Dragon and the Council of Twelve. Brutaris is considered a rather ugly beast, but like Phistus, he is very strong of body and heart. He is loyal to those who work and fight for peace. He is specialized in using the green ramming gear. Brutaris was once transformed into a chromatic dragon by Word Paynn, with the help of an artificial prism bonemark.
Brutaris has a slightly similar design to Cyrano, except his hide is a lighter green with red and green stripes, armor, hooves and ram-like horns. His name is possibly a play on the word Brutish which means tough.
Shock-Ra is the blue draconium Energy-class dragon that belongs to the close minded Khatah, the leader of the Inner Order Crew. Shock-Ra is loyal at heart and strong of mind, like his human, Khatah, and is very well disciplined in the martial arts. He is swift on his feet and is skilled at jumping. When he senses trouble, he tends to stop what he’s doing and focus on what’s happening around him.
Shock-Ra stands on four legs and has a sleek blue, indigo and orange design. His name is probably a play on the word Chakra which is another name for Chi or spiritual energy.
Gunny is a Scavenger-class light green draconium dragon. His human is Stewardd, the leader of the Keepers Crew.
Not much is known about Gunny and his personality since has not appeared in an episode yet.
Gunny is bipedal dragon with a light green design. He is a very small dragon to suit his small rider, Stewardd. He also has long but small ears like a mouse's.
The real leader of the Prophets Crew is the deceptive Propheci. Propheci is labyrinthine and insincere, and his human was Reepyr, human leader of the Prophets.
Though his words are harsh and devious, Propheci can be rather wise. He is a black-hearted dragon and wanted the Dragon Booster destroyed to prevent humans from controlling the dragons. Propheci is known to be extremely untrustworthy. After Artha proved that humans and dragons can work together, he decided that he didn’t want to lose the control that his dragons had, and thus imprisoned Reepyr and his kin's riders in ancient metal prisons within the lost Track of Doom. However, with the help of the Dragon Booster, Reepyr escaped and caused the Track of Doom to become unstable, sealing them in. At one time, Propheci controlled Mortis, and used him to attack Artha. In 'When Opposites Attract' Propheci took control of Stewardd.
Propheci is bipedal dragon with a blue and orange design and a visible brain, similar in appearance to a T. rex or an Allosaurus. His name is a play-on of the word prophecy which is an omen.
Rumbull (otherwise known as Aftershock) is an Earth-class brown draconium dragon. His human is Kawake, the leader of the Will of the Dragon crew. Rumbull is one of the largest dragons besides Abandonn and Tyrannis Pax. He is built for excavation work and he and Kawake were once Dragball Champions, but now he carries Kawake when Kawake does not use his wheelchair
Rumbull is yet another dragon that has a similar build to that of a Bull-class dragon (specifically Cyrano), but as he is an earth-class dragon, he has a brown design with a blue chin, and walks on four legs. His name is an obvious play on the word Rumble which is similar to a quake.
Hyve is the dragon belonging to Army of the Dragon leader Wulph. Hyve is a purple draconium Pack-class dragon and, like Wyldfyr, is bipedal. Hyve is a speedy dragon who usually has Purple Energy Drain Whips equipped with her and Wulph. When teamed with the other purple dragons in the Army of the Dragon, she can be very strong. Wulph is the only person that she trusts with complete confidence.
Hyve is a bipedal dragon with a purple design and wolf-like appearance. She also has a scar on her right eye. Her name is possibly a play on the word Hive which is a bees nest. She is also apparently female as stated by Rob Travalino, on the Dragon Booster fan boards.
Swavvy is a Sonic-class turquoise draconium dragon. His human is Vociferous, the leader of the Voice of the Dragon crew. Though Swavvy and Vociferous seem to work together as one, he could probably be better off with a more experienced rider than having Vociferous get his energy to drain quickly because of clumsiness. Still, Swavvy is loyal to his crew and his rider.
Swavvy, believe it or not, is NOT the large bull-class-like dragon Vociferous used in episode 20 "Artha the Drac". He is a dragon with a dark turquoise color and a body similar to that of the Nautilus class dargons. (ex:The Dragon Fish's dragons.) He walks on four legs. His name is a play on the word suave which means sophisticated. You can see him in the episodes "The Defiants", during the fight scene, and "Cain's Mutiny", during the time where Shadow Booster attacks the Down City crews.
Poseidos is a light blue draconium Nautilus-class dragon. His human is Marianis, the leader of the Dragon Fish Crew. Poseidos is a loyal dragon who like his rider serves to help the Dragon Booster. It is assumed Poseidos is an excellent swimmer and prefers the water to land. It is unknown if Poseidos is male or female.
Poseidos stands on four legs and has a sleek light blue design, very similar to that of Energy Class Dragons, specifically Shock-Ra. His name is a play on the name Poseidon which is the Greek god of the sea.
Turbulence is a white draconium Sky-class dragon. His human is Chute, the leader of the Dragon Winds Crew.
Turbulence like his rider loves adventure and excitement and is known for his death defying stunts. Turbulence is not Chute's first dragon, her first dragon was Twystyr and it is unknown what happened to him.
Turbulence can stand on two legs, but runs on four and he has an aero-dynamic white design with blue and yellow, his head has thin horns one coming up from the nose and one pointing down from the chin to make him more dynamic, he also has a large fin at the end of his tail. His name is a play on the word Turbulence which is the shaking motion sometimes experienced on a plane flight. He is a loyal and sweet dragon, but he can be a bully at times and the horns on his head are powerful weapons.
Bumpyrr is a Sky-class white draconium dragon. His human is Spratt, a former member of the Dragon Eyes Crew.
Not much is known about Bumpyrr and his personality since has not appeared in an episode yet.
It is unclear if Spratt had Bumpyrr at the time he joined the Dragon Eyes because he was never seen using a dragon of his own.
Abandonn is Word Paynn's powerful Black draconium Psi-class dragon. We have only seen him in his entirety in the episodes, "All Is Not Lost" and maybe even in "The Return of The Drakkus-2" because Drakkus is Word Paynn.
He is immense to behold and has a tiger style Deep Violet and Orange coloring which changes to magenta and turquoise in his mutant form, two long horns projecting Triceratops-style from his head, and sinister glowing eyes. He is also extremely large, dwarfing nearly all of the other dragons.
His name is a play on the word Abandon which means to leave behind, or Abandon as in 'abandon all hope'. He is also named after one of the moons.
Abandonn's shape has led fans to believe that there are two breeds of black dragons.
The gold-boned dragon that belongs to Connor. Tyrannis Paxx is not the dragon of legend, just a regular gold-boned dragon, called a "Star Dragon". Tyrannis Paxx is very large, as is Drakkus and Word Paynn's dragon, Abandonn.
It has been said that he is immensely powerful and even more so when working in tandem with Mortis. Thus far, he has been glimpsed in The Return Of Drakkus-Part One, and is fully revealed in Part 2.
He bears resemblance to the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex- the resemblance is most likely intentional. Tyrannis Pax appears to be an ancient sort of dragon, a relic from the times of the Dragon Priests. He is immensely powerful and rather intelligent. He has an extra pair of hidden, extendable arms.
His name is actually derived from Latin and when translated means "Peaceful Tyrant" or "Tyrant of Peace".
Libris is believed to be the last living dragon composed of gray draconium, and can only be summoned by the Horn of Libris trophy, once kept safe in Dragon City Security. Libris can use your own Draconium energy against you, making it a threat if unstable. According to Rivett in "The Mechanist", Libris was his dragon, and Libris is not the only gray dragon out there. Rivett now plans to summon Libris again with the Horn in his custody. Libris seems to have a kind attitude, and is said to have helped the Dragon Booster in the last Dragon-Human war.
Libris resembles a gigantic, living dragon skeleton. He is the only dragon that looks like this. His name is probably derived from the Latin word for "book".
This is one of Word Paynn's many twisted creations, and not a true bonemark dragon. Word creates an artificial prism bonemark, which he places on Brutaris, fusing the power of all of the bone colors with him. Brutaris was transformed into a gigantic, mutated creature that shifted colors and was rather distorted, with its right foot still keeping shape of a hoof and its left foot being clawed. Artha and Beau still managed to shatter the bonemark and save Brutaris, making it impossible for Word to create another artificial gold dragon.
The Chromatic Dragon was made by the help of all the best dragons in every color, excluding the gray dragon, Libris. How Word managed to get his hands on Propheci is unknown...
This twisted, fiendish creature is a very powerful one since it possessed all the draconium colors it cannot be defeated by physical means. The only way to defeat this creature is to shatter the bone-mark upon its head.
Furox is the dragon spirit hidden within the red draconium bonemark. The Furox bonemark is shaped like a spurt of flame and is ironically the Dragon Flares crew insignia. The Furox is the dragon of war and once the Bonemark is placed upon a dragon, the full ferocity of the Furox shows through by enhancing the victims into a beast with red eyes and golden-orange spikes.
The Furox first controlled Pyrrah and Phorrj, but thanks to Beau was thrown off. Moordryd, however, was in the citadel containing the bonemark, and seized it with his own desires. After Artha as the Dragon Booster dared Moordryd to ride Beau, Moordryd places it upon Beau, and both were victims to the Furox's control. The Furox was later absorbed by Beau after he was released by its influence.
Wraith dragons are under the control of a type of black draconium gear, and have invisibility gear on them. Wraith dragons are more of victims to Word than villains, as they are dragons stolen and controlled to do what Word wants them to do. They can turn invisible and the best types are the swift and stealthy. Word sometimes uses these for spying and traps, but occasionally provides several for Moordryd whenever necessary.
These dragons actually are very intelligent and they closely resemble Velociraptors. They are jet black with neon yellow eyes. They emit loud high pitched screeches when frightened or when sent to do orders from Word. They are also very fast and difficult to attack unless the dragons themselves are outnumbered.
One time, in episode 8 "Three Times a Hero", it is shown that Word was spying on Dragon Booster and Kitt Wonn using a Bull-Class Wraith Dragon. Rarely anymore Bull-Class wraiths have been used possibly because they aren't as stealthy as 2-legged and skinny 4-legged dragons.
These dragons were seen in "Darkness Falls". Embryonic dragons still in their shells were turned from red to black by a strange pod that was made by Word. The destructive and violent dragons were tested on the Penn Racing Crew, but Parmon used the same item with some modifications to change the dragons back to their original colors (red).
At the end of the episode, Decepshun was mutated by the radiation pod. When she bent down to inspect the pod, it exploded, releasing the energy upon her, thus she was transformed into a pure black draconium dragon that can shift from her normal appearance to her mutated appearance (like Beau). Once Decepshun's rider Moordryd found the gauntlet that fits his amulet, Decepshun was more easily able to transform to her pure black state, like Beau transforms from blue to black and gold.
8 Pure black dragons were seen again in episode 38, "Battle for the Ages", when Armeggadon fought Mortis and Drakkus.
Hydrags are large, teal, serpent-like dragons with yellow eyes. They usually live in dark, empty places, or underground in unstable places, and only come out when a victim is in their sight. Hydrags will shoot out from their hiding place, devouring their victims or biting them to bits, then returning to their original hiding place as quickly as they came up. They are very dangerous and are mostly seen (probably unwillingly) around deserted areas.
These serpent-like dragons unlike most, have little but some loyalty to Beau, nor can they be controlled due to being wild creatures.
A large and dangerous vampire dragon that hides in a cave somewhere in the City of Loane (Old City). The Muhorta was a part of the original dragon-human war, and works parallel to an energy draining whip, draining the energy out of helpless dragons and humans. Like a Hydrag, it stays in hiding until it spots a victim, then tentacles snap out at any unfortunate passers-by.
This horrid beast was thought to have the body of a Bull-Class Dragon but with clawed feet instead of hooves. This dragon is currently the only one of its kind and like some of the Hydrags, shows no loyalty towards Beau. This dragon sees by infrared vision and can be fooled by invisibility gear. It will try to suck the energy out of any life form near it, friend or foe.
Yellow-belly newts are miscellaneous to Dragon City dragons, and are instead what they are clearly called: yellow-belly newts. Their color features are yellow and blue, with a long, blue tongue and a leaf-shaped tail (it seems as though Cain has a phobia to these critters, and if not, perhaps their shadows).
Crow-Drags are a type of flying creature, also miscellaneous to Dragon City dragons. They resemble crows and, like many birds, are attracted to shiny objects. This is proven in "Darkness Falls", when a Crow-drag steals the gold star amulet. Luckily, Lance goes on a quest to retrieve it, and gave it back to Artha, just right before a massive black dragon onslaught.
Tracking dragons are purple and green insectile dragons with wings like a dragonfly's. Extremely compact, they can be carried around in palm-sized pods and released to follow unsuspecting dragons/riders. Their large eyes feed back to the pod, enabling the owner to see their quarry. They are mostly used by the Army of the Dragon Down City Crew, although Moordryd and Parmon also employ them at various points.
There are all kinds of gear for dragons to use in battle, competition, and races. The basic gear colors are as follows:
(Take note that some of this gear has not yet been seen in the show, only on the main page at www.dragonbooster.com)
Red gear is sleek, rounded, and has lots of texture for channelling and holding heat. Red draconium gear, because of its natural ability to store and release heat, makes for excellent quick use, advantage gear. Also, because of this heated quality, red draconium gear can store heat to repair broken gear of all colours. Gear: Speed Burst, Forging Gear, Fire Grenades, Repair Gear, Heatwave Gear, Fireball Gear, Red Thrusting Gear and so on
