Dragon Cave Wiki

Paper Dragons are one of the original species on the site, and were the first original species to be released with an original sprite as opposed to one from a video game like other dragons had at the time. They are much like Cheese Dragons in that they have no gender, cannot breed, and are actually enchanted items rather than true dragons.

Genders were once assigned to this breed of dragon (though they were still unbreedable), and older dragons still have their assigned genders visible on players' scrolls.

As of September 2011, Paper eggs now have their own 'peeling' cracking sequence, as opposed to the regular cracking sequence which was deemed unsuitable. However, the egg sprite remained the same size, despite the egg and hatchlings' descriptions describing them as being very small.

Official descriptions[]


This egg is tiny and made out of several pieces of paper folded together.


Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It is made out of paper, and is so small and light, you can hold it on one finger.

The pieces have rearranged themselves to form little wings which it uses to glide around.


Paper dragons are not truly living creatures. They are pieces of parchment enchanted by magic, and as such, are very vulnerable to fire. However, they behave almost like dragons. The only place where their behavior differs is breeding: paper dragons cannot breed.
