Dragons in the League of Legends multiverse are all the beings with reptilian morphology that come from the draconic lineage. These creatures that can be classified under Celestial Dragons or Terrestrial Dragons in origins.

NOTE: The "sub-species" mentioned are not genetically linked with each other, but share appearances. This similar appearance is because Terrestrial Dragons once mimicked its Celestial counterpart.[1] 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.

Trivia

  • The Science of Dragons is called Dragonology, and its researchers are called Dracologists.
  • Shyvana OriginalSquare Shyvana's old lore explained a bit of Dragon physiology. Dragons have a form of sexual dimorphism, where the females are always born with an 'Elemental Rune' for a heart. In Shyvana's case, she was born with a fire rune. This suggests that all the elemental drakes are females and elder dragons are males, since only females are linked to an element.
  • The Flame Dragon profileicon Dragon World universe depicts a world where Dragons roam free in vast numbers.
  • The 2020 Dragonmancer profileicon Dragonmancer universe depicts a world where characters wield the powers of ancient and might dragons.
