The monsters listed on this page are the most popular/notable examples, but there are many others. Be resourceful and flexible with your own team based on the monsters you have. See individual Monster Guides for more details.

Dragons are, of course, prolific in the game Puzzle & Dragons, but most of them don't make a very good team due to the lack of useful Active Skills. GungHo is starting to amend this with more variety in farmable Dragons, so keep an eye out for any that may help your team. Red (Fire) is currently the strongest Dragon team color, followed by Green (Wood) and Dark.

Dragons usually have high HP and decent ATK in exchange for low RCV, though there are exceptions. Due to their high Team Cost and relative difficulty in getting good subs, Dragon teams are not highly recommended for inexperienced players.

Popular Leaders[edit | edit source]

Monster Leader Skill Description
Early/mid-game
No.231  Ancient Dragon KnightNo.824  Ancient Dragon Knight, Zeal 2.5x/3x ATK for Dragons The classic Dragon team leader, easily farmed and skilled up from his survey dungeon, or Legendary Dragons' Footprints/Sky Dragons' Domain.
No.914  Eternal Jade Dragon Caller, Sonia 2.5x ATK and 2.5x RCV for Dragons Not as popular as her sister No.912 Extant Red Dragon Caller, Sonia, but still strong enough if you have nothing else. Team Cost makes her tough for a new player.
No.1244  Valiant & Loyal Deity, Guan Yu 3.5x ATK for Dragons when HP above 50% Possibly the strongest Dragon team leader, but inconvenient for new players due to his massive Team Cost.
No.1360  Destroyer Dragon, Apocalypse 1.5x HP and 3x ATK for Dragons A very good Leader Skill, but his unfitting colors keep him from being more popular.
Late-game
No.1344  Sword-Wielding God of Victory, Freyr 3x ATK and 1.35x RCV for Dragons By the time you can evolve this guy, you may not care about running a Dragon team. Partners well with No.1244 Valiant & Loyal Deity, Guan Yu.
No.1533  Awoken Minerva 2.5x ATK for Fire and Dragon types; reduce Light & Dark damage by 50% Tremendously popular due to her usefulness on numerous Fire teams, but extremely hard to evolve.
No.781  Kouryu the Star Emperor, FaganNo.1342  Gleaming Kouryu Emperor, FaganNo.1343  Dark Kouryu Emperor, Fagan 4x ATK for Dragons when HP is full Very strong farming leader, but it's tough to find friends also running him. Excellent array of Awoken Skills when ultimate evolved.
No.1215  Maleficent Dragon Lord Zaerog 1.25x HP and 3.5x ATK for Dragons Another strong leader for a Dark-centric team. His other forms are similarly strong, but are short on useful Awoken Skills.

Popular Subs[edit | edit source]

Monster Active Skill Description
Early/mid-game
No.761  Jester Dragon, Drawn Joker 5-turn Heartmaker The other Toy Dragons are similarly effective, but Drawn Joker is the most easily farmable from its survey dungeon.
No.660  Droidragon Reduce enemy defense to 0% for 1 turn Free during certain special occasions. Active Skill is situationally useful.
No.1076  Red Sky Fruit, Strawberry DragonNo.1084  Purple Sky Fruit, Grape Dragon Heal 3000 HP, and change Orbs to Heart Occasionally given out for free as gifts. Stats are not strong, but their pile of Awoken Skills are useful when your team is not yet filled with high-end REM pulls.
No.1591  Flame Insect Dragon, FlammesickleNo.1592  Water Insect Dragon, DeadjumperNo.1593  Earth Insect Dragon, Gigarock Increase Orb drops of own color for 3 turns The farmable Dragon versions of No.1331 Divine Brave General, KrishnaNo.1333 Blessed River Goddess, SarasvatiNo.1335 Creator God, Vishnu.
No.1062  Corpse Wyrm, Dragon Zombie Enhance Wood and Dark Orbs Quite easy to farm, and fits perfectly on No.914 Eternal Jade Dragon Caller, Sonia's team. Look out for high Team Cost.
Late-game
No.1555  Eight-Headed Dragon God, Viper Orochi Delay enemies by 5 turns Lacks color synergy with most Dragon teams, but double Two-Pronged Attack Two-Pronged Attacks and Skill Boost Skill Boosts are nothing to sneeze at.
No.1726  Awoken Hinokagutsuchi Reduce enemy defense to 25% for 1 turn; change Water Orbs to Fire Orbs and Heart Orbs to Dark Orbs Three Two-Pronged Attack Two-Pronged Attacks and a sky-high ATK make for one intimidating Dragon. Of course, his evolution requirements are extremely difficult.
No.1732  Stormy God-Emperor, Yamato Takeru Change Wood Orbs to Fire Orbs, and Dark Orbs to Heart Orbs Orb changing, and 3 Skill Boost Skill Boosts!
