Dragon Cave Wiki

Mistlet Pygmies (previously Dark Myst Pygmies) were released on May 21, 2011, for Dragon Cave's 5th Anniversary alongside Crimson Flare, Misfit, Nilia and Seawyrm Pygmies.

Like all pygmies, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons and they can only breed with other pygmies.

Official descriptions[]


This tiny egg is mysterious and dark.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It has a somber color, but is surprisingly playful.

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


Mistlet Pygmies thrive in humid environments and are most content when frolicking in the rain or fog. The cheerful demeanor they exhibit provides a remarkable contrast to their shadowy appearance, bringing joy in otherwise gloomy environments. Mistlets are an especially beautiful sight in long summer evenings, as their streak of vibrant scales catch the fading sunlight. They spend a great deal of their time foraging for edible roots and insects, and sometimes enjoy treats in the form of small fish or frogs.

Breed replacement[]

Dark Myst retired concept

Dark Myst Pygmy as seen in the Encyclopedia, prior to replacement.

The Mistlet Pygmy replaced the Dark Myst Pygmy on May 8, 2021. Citing detestable and discriminatory views and conduct by the original artist, Dragon Cave removed all dragon breeds created by the artist and replaced them with new concepts and art. A total of 10 breeds were replaced in this update. An official statement by site administrator TJ09 can be found on the forums.
