Dragon Cave Wiki

Hooded Murkling Dragons were released on May 21, 2022, alongside Thundersnow Dragons, Furor Pygmies, Astralophyne Dragons, Fanalea Dragons, Pyrrhichios Dragons and Scourgekeeper Dragons as part of Dragon Cave's 16th birthday celebration.

Hooded Murklings have the Breed Specific Action Adventure. Through this action, the user may select up to six adult dragons from the same release to be sent on an adventure, attempting to ally a Scourgekeeper Dragon. If successful, an adult Scourgekeeper Dragon will be added to the user's scroll and the participating adventurers will "retire", making the BSA unavailable for those dragons. A failed adventure imposes a 14 day cooldown on the participating adventurers, after which they can attempt another adventure.

Official descriptions[]


This shady egg seems to be lurking just out of sight.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very slinky and mischievous and loves to play mean tricks on others.

And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.


Hooded Murklings are a smaller breed of dragon and quite the shifty, cunning sort. Typically they are ambush predators, submerging themselves in murky waters among the reeds or beneath the mud and will launch themselves armed with a poisonous attack when suitable prey comes along. It’s not uncommon for one to barter for meat instead by using treasures stolen from other dragons or their hoards, and though they tend to be solitary the promise of riches and fine meats can easily sway a Hooded Murkling into joining up with others to lend a “helpful” claw. Playing nicely or fairly with said others is not a strength they often possess.

Additional information[]

To help people better imagine the entire rpg party, I made silhouettes and the conceptors of each dragon gave me their sizes to compile into a size chart:
