Dragons are, within the Multiverse, an informal grouping of all the beings with reptilian morphology that come from the draconic lineage. Creatures that fall under this grouping can be split between Celestial Dragons or Terrestrial Dragons by way of their origins.
The informal grouping comes from the fact that the "sub-species" mentioned above are not genetically linked with each other, but share appearances. This similar appearance is because the Terrestrial Dragons once mimicked its Celestial counterpart. Both "sub-species" take inspiration of Earth dragons from mythology, which are equally varied in appearance and cultural perceptions.
Non-playable Dragons are often depicted in Riot's games as formidable beings.
- In League of Legends the terrestrial sort are depicted as Epic Monsters known as drakes, residing in Summoner's Rift's dragon pit.
- In Legends of Runeterra, they are a special group of powerful units that grow stronger through killing others.
