Paper Dragons were one of the first dragons with an original sprite to be introduced. They also have no gender and therefore cannot breed, much like the Cheese 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. Many older users objected to the change from the beginning and though there is still a small, visible campaign to bring back the genders, this is not considered a controversial issue on the site. Paper dragons are, in TJ's words, considered rare. They are unbreedable and currently have no breed specific action. They are currently the only dragons to have the same base hatchling sprite as the earlier hatchling sprites from other dragons.

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 that describe them as being very small.

Official Dragon Description


"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."

Mature Hatchling

"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."
