While dinosaurs do look cool but dragons always seem to be the better versions of dinosaurs. Almost everyone gets interested in the talk of these fire-spitting fictional beings and just like dinosaurs we all want them to be real somehow (not at this time obviously). So while we wait for a theory to come out someday that suggests that dragons are real, for now here are some dragons from movies that completely stole the show and are worth watching.
Toothless – How to Train Your Dragon
Starting off with Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, this dragon is undeniably one of the most adorable yet unique dragons out there with qualities that are not really the qualities of a dragon. From silly moves to loving the head scratches and energaticlly plauful, you tell us which dragon does that? However, that is not always the case, Toothless is extremely loyal to his human friend Hiccup and is always there in the battlefield to defend him.
Vermithrax Pejorative – Dragonslayer
This one is a classic from the 1980’s film named Dragonslayer, Vermithrax Pejorative was definitely a turning point for dragons on screen becasuse before this dragon almost all others were based on rubber suits rather than special effects which made those dragons quite impractical. Vermithrax Pejorative however, was given much attention and infact 25% of the movies budget was dedicated to just this dragon.
Vermithrax was one of those mean dragons who was continuously demanding virgin sacrifice from a country/land named Urland. To give you an idea how popular this dragon was, Guillermo del Toro and George R.R. Martin the two artists of Game of Thrones book also took inspiration from its design.
Mushu – Mulan
This small Chinese dragon is one comical character and a self designated guardian of Fa Mulan. Mushu tends to be more impulsive, overconfident, and hilarious in most settings. In an effort to regain his position as a family guardian, he selfishly helps Mulan become a war hero. However, at some point he even puts the life of Mulan in danger for his own goals but later admits his fault and even to the point of putting Mulan’s happiness and safety ahead of his own.
Rathalos – Monster Hunter
Rathalos is one main attraction in movie Monster Hunter which was adapted from a Monster Hunter gaming series. Rathalos is one skilled flyer and absolutely loves aerial hunting. From qualities like burning his enemies using fiery projectiles to biting at enemies when they get close enough, Rathalos is one of the wild dragons out there.
Sisu – Raya and the Last Dragon
Sisu originally named as Sisudatu is no doubt one of the best designed work of art out there. While most of the dragons exhibit danger, threats and powe Sisu is self-deprecating comedy dragon that exhibits literally no threats at all. Appearing in Raya the Last Dragon where the story’s protagonist, Raya, must accompany Sisu on a quest to reclaim her dragon family’s power, this exquisite dragon is totally worth the watch.
King Ghidorah – The Godzilla franchise
Perhaps one of the most dangerous yet popular one in dragons from movies list, this three headed monster was first appeared in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster adn then later on made it to the Godzilla franchise as well. King Ghidorah, as described earlier is a three headed absolute monster that can even strike lightning from its mouth, which it does when it comes face to face with Godzila in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah as well.
When we say King Ghidorah is one of the most popular dragons out there as well, it;s not just because of its appearance but also because of this hillareros meme template which was made back in 2019 after Michael Dougherty’s (the director of Godzilla: King of the Monsters) joked that one of Ghidorah’s three heads is a doofus named Kevin.
Well that takes us to the end of this list of 6 dragons from movies that completely stole the show. Let us know in the comment section if there are any other praisewothy dragons as well that should be on the list.
