Twinklecape Pygmies were released on April 28, 2024, alongside Windrider Wyverns.

Twinklecape Pygmies are a hybrid breed, produced by crossbreeding Glowback Pygmies and Pipio Pygmies. Like other pygmy dragons, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons, and can only be bred with other pygmy breeds.

Official descriptions[]


This tiny egg is twinkling with prismatic light.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves to play with other hatchlings.

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


Twinklecape Pygmies are named for their feathers resembling a small white cape draped over their blue bodies. Their glowing tendrils, tail feathers and twinkling wings make them a sight to behold both during the day and night. They are very social and thrive best in groups, living together in leafy trees. Much of their time not used for dancing or foraging is spent decorating their trees and nests together with bits and bobs that have caught their fancy. Their beautiful appearance is popular with landowners, many of whom aspiring to play host to these pygmies in their gardens by attracting them with lights and shiny objects.

Additional Information[]

Adults! \o/
Mewtie and I had been interested in making a Glowback x Pipio hybrid for a while, and we're excited to finally share them!

Their feather cape & collar/hood was inspired by jacobin pigeons:
Pigeon reference
It was the main image (along with the glowbacks' glowing tendrils) I had in mind when designing them.

And here is their initial sketch:
Twinklecape concept
The sky blue tail stripes were changed into a gradient and the wing membrane gradient was changed to have twinkling speckles instead during the sprite shading change, both of which I love. Thanks, Mewtie!
