Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This smooth egg has a bright blue stripe on it.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It makes little chirps when it spits fire.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It makes little chirps when it spits fire.

And look! It has grown fins and armored plates! It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

Hunter dragons are forest dwelling creatures known for having a high success rate of taking down prey. While most commonly seen in territorial patrol groups of 2-3, they live in hierarchical packs of 20+ individuals. Their most notable ability is the copycat ability to use their scales to mimic the colors of the surroundings. This allows them to camouflage into their environment well, avoiding prey noticing their bright blue scales. Some rumors do exist of the Hunter dragon copying other dragons, even going so far as to imitate the behaviors of breeds wildly differently from themselves.

Additional information[]

Just in case y'all aren't on the discord, the Hunter Dragons' reference has been guessed!

And as the concepter I can confirm, it's Mega Man!

So I'ma drop this:
https://megaman.fandom.com/wiki/Mega_Man_X_(series)

And this:
https://megaman.fandom.com/wiki/Mega_Man_(original_series)

And this because they just released a legacy collection:
https://megaman.fandom.com/wiki/Mega_Man_Battle_Network_(series)

The Hunter's name comes from Maverick Hunters, which is why the have patrol groups of 2-3, for X, Zero, and Axl. lol (Even though, in the Games, Mega Man tends to fight on his own, he does have friends and allies.)

S1 and S2 are actually more a Mega Man Classic reference. S1 is Rock, an normal Assistant Robot, and S2 is after he becomes Mega Man! Adult has more Mega Man X influence.
Also the chirps these guys make are more akin to baby crocodile noises:
What_baby_Crocodiles_really_sound_like

Which is the closest real life sound to a buster shot:

Also, props to the one dude on the (unofficial?) Discord who guessed these guys from the egg. You saved everyone from suffering and brought everlasting peace.

Edit: Also, THANKS TO @Kennon FOR HELPING MAKE THESE GUYS. I wouldn't have been able to do it without them! Literally. My Paint died several times during this. lol

I'm a little late to the reveal party due to a long day at work, but I'm so glad folks like my Hunter sprite ;u; Thank you @Shokomon for inviting me to work on the concept!

I wanted to share a couple of the sketches/concept arts for the Hunter since the larger size does a few of the details better justice. A few things definitely got refined once they were sprites tho. (putting them under a spoiler cause they're kinda big lol)
