Dragon Slayer is a team-wide stacking neutral buff granted by the Dragon Dragon. It is available only on Summoner's Rift.

Slaying a dragon will grant a buff based on the element of the dragon slain; that buff can stack up to four times for a given element, and a team can possess more than one type of buff. However, only three types of elemental drakes will spawn on the map, due to the first two drakes consisting of two elemental types and all drakes thereafter spawning as the elemental type dependent on the element that dominates the rift. This means that in a given game, only the buff granted by the rift-dominant element can be stacked. These buffs are permanent and are granted to the entire team of the player who killed the dragon.

The Dragon Soul is a powerful team-wide neutral buff granted by the Dragon Dragon. It is available only on Summoner's Rift.

Slaying four elemental dragons will grant the soul of the element that dominates the rift.

Aspect of the Dragon is a temporary team-wide neutral buff granted by the Elder Dragon Elder Dragon, which only spawns after a team has slain 4 elemental drakes. It is available only on Summoner's Rift.

The buff is only given if alive and is lost upon death.
