It is strange how the dragons appear to be a mix between European and Oriental cultures. I have always loved dragons, don't know why. They're neat. I did a huge project in Jr. High about the origin of the dragon and how each culture's perception of the dragon is different. It was a good project. I earned first place at district. I got nervous and messed up my presentation at state and only came out with a third place. Still, it was a pretty awesome project. Wow, how did I get on to that? Oh well, peace, love, and happiness for the rest of the night/day/afternoon/evening. Mattkenn3 Talk 06:05, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
- I don't see it as "strange," more like, "awesome." Besides, the entire show is a mix of just about every culture. felinoel ~ (Talk) 06:16, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah it's interesting. They're oriental dragons in their general shape, but European in the fact they breathe fire and the fear they cause. The 888th Avatar (Talk) 08:11, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Is it worth noting that Fang has white horns while all the other dragons have horns according to the color of their bodies? Ddd44 07:13, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
Dragon Fact File
In the fact file that is usually right of the text, it says dragons are extinct. This is not correct, for there are two dragons left in the world of the Avatar.

why does it feel like the "connection" section talks about western influences like it's some kind of dirty word? It waxes on about the individual contributions of korean and Chinese legend, then talks about the simplified design being because of "western audiences". Why isnt the simplified idea a "attribute of European dragons", or some such, instead of imply that culture is somehow less immportant than Chinese or korean?

- Just looked over the section, I'm not seeing it. The words "simple" & "simplified" aren't even used in the article.Neo Bahamut (wall • contribs) 23:05, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Hey I just read the art of the animated series for book 2 spirits. It states that the dragon wan trained with was a spirit dragon so should we rename it and classify it differently? --Thebridge14 (wall • contribs) 00:48, October 16, 2014 (UTC)Thebridge14
- We should not rename this page since it deals about dragons as a species and not all dragons are spirits. If the white dragon was a spirit, however, it should be added to the Spirit World page under the section of the "known spirits" (with a source to the exact page of the artbook where such information was revealed).
