Lightning Pygmies were released on July 3, 2022, alongside False-Headed Hydra Dragons. Like all pygmies, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons and they can only breed with other pygmies.

Official descriptions[]


This tiny blue egg gives you a slight shock when you touch it.


Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It seems to be particularly fond of lightning storms.

Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It seems to be particularly fond of lightning storms.

And look! It has gotten aggressive towards you now, attacking your hands whenever you come near! It must be close to maturing.


Lightning Pygmies are well-known as rumors but rarely seen. An ill-mannered breed, their confidence comes from the tremendous energy that they absorb from natural lightning bolts. They hunt in the middle of storms, reaching high speeds, and with the help of lightning magic they go after prey like a lightning bolt.

Additional information[]

Lightning concept art

Lightning Pygmies are an aggressive breed, attacking not just prey but also others they don't welcome. Due to their small size, the fact that they hunt inmidst of storms and their immense speed, it is very difficult to spot them. One probably rather wouldn't, too; encounters tend to feel like lightning striking right next to you.
I only made the art for them. The concept and descriptions are by the same person who was also behind the Dragon Request of the Pipio Pygmies.
