Ultraviolet Dragons are a hybrid species released on May 22, 2012, alongside Tsunami Wyverns and Lumina Dragons. Breeding an Ultraviolet with any other dragon (including another Ultraviolet) can result in a Spitfire egg instead of an Ultraviolet egg; they are the only hybrids capable of doing this.

Official descriptions[]


This egg is very warm, as if it has been sitting out in strong sunlight.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It loves to bask and play in the sunshine.

It’s gotten slightly bigger and its colors have changed! It must be close to maturing.


Ultraviolet Dragons are a heat-loving breed that are most commonly found in hot, arid environments. These hardy dragons are omnivorous and will eat both plant and animal matter, even species with thorny physical defenses such as cacti. They are generally peaceful and often quite friendly, but males will become aggressive and cantankerous during the breeding season. Intense fights take place over females, sometimes resulting in injury for both combatants.
