A mythical creature present in both western and eastern legends. Usually scaly, serpentine, have wings, and a crest of some kind.

Western legends show dragons in a fairly negative light. Most of the legends of dragons show them as fearsome, merciless beats who devour maidens, destroy villages, and keep hoards of treasures for which numerous knights attempt to slay the dragon in quests for either righteousness or personal wealth.

Eastern legends, however, show dragons in a much more positive sense. In most eastern areas, especially China and Japan, dragons are sacred beings of a snakes body, wings, a deer's antlers, and numerous other parts from other creatures rather than the modern day scaly, winged beasts. The eastern dragons are revered with honor and are considered symbols of wealth, strength, intelligence, and overall near-perfection.

The modern day dragon usually encapsulates the fearsome, strong, and proud looks of western myths and the intelligence, holiness, and strength of dragons in eastern myths. However, most dragons nowadays are used as signs of strength, majesty, honor, intelligence, etc.

A dragon is not a dragon unless he breaths fire.
If dragons existed, this world would be complete.

Dragon Stereotype
The phrase "Dragon" is a new Kiwi/New Zealand stereotype.
Similar to "Emo" or "Scene", the Dragon stereotype is a mix of many stereotypes, someone is a "Dragon" if they stand out in a crowd, similar to how a Dragon would stand out in a crowd of people.
Ways to pick a Dragon
-Colorful hair/Wacky outrageous hair styles
-Colorful unique/Stand out Clothes
-Possibly goth, emo or scene as long as there unlike other people and stand out.

n. your friend's other friend that nobody in your circle of friends likes, because they are unattractive or obnoxious. Usually, your friend wants you to be friends with "the dragon". Overall, no one in the circle of friends enjoys a dragon's company.

If "the dragon" is a girl, she is unattractive and tries to hook up with all your friends at parties, where she is the drunkest and loudest person attending. If "the dragon" is a guy, he will also be the drunkest one, and acts like a douche bag and wont stop talking about how much he can drink or bench.
"Dude, have you seen the friend that he brought to this party? She's totally the drunkest one here and acting like a moron"
