The Dragon is a Creature type in Dungeon Keeper.


The best all-round creatures, Dragons can arrive two ways. They can either enter your Dungeon through a Portal or be grown from Demon Spawn who have been trained to level 10. These Demon Spawn then become level 4 Dragons. They are excellent in combat, and breathe a natural fire that toasts heroes and enemy creatures. They are natural researchers but will train if no research is available.

-- Dungeon Keeper Manual

General InformationEdit

Tough to kill and powerful fighters, dragons are some of the best combat creatures to obtain. They are strong against just about every creature, except the powerful spellcasters like Wizards and Warlocks. With their Healing ability, they are virtually invincible. Dragons are expensive to train and maintain, but they can be well-worth the investment. Perhaps their only weakness in combat is their rather slow movement speed.

Dragons can be used like a barrier for other creatures in battles. When you see enemies coming, the best option is to throw your highest level dragons in the battle so they will fight the enemies while your other creatures attack without getting hurt.

Outside of combat, Dragons are excellent researchers, and proficient manufacturers. Dragons may be attracted to dungeons through conventional means, or (in the later stages of the campaign) through sufficiently training Demon Spawns.

Like Warlocks and Tentacles, Dragons gain experience from sleeping next to a specific type of tile, in this case, Lava.

Abilities Edit

  1. Immune to Lava and Lava Traps.
  2. Uses Flame Breath instead of Hand to Hand.
  3. When Possessed, their flame breath can be streamed, making them strong against any close-combat enemies.
