Badges, sometimes called trophies, were added to the site on May 2, 2010. The first badge was as an intended fix for the Festival of Eggs basket. Later, trophies for collecting 50, 200, and 500 dragons respectively were added. A 1000 dragon badge was added on DC's 11th Birthday.
Badges are most commonly awarded for participation in holiday events, with "spriter's alt" versions applying in some cases to users and staff who planned said events.
