Dragon Cave Wiki
Valentine adult

Valentine's Day is a holiday that has been celebrated on Dragon Cave every February since 2009. Typically, Valentine's Day celebrations include a Valentine-themed mini-game and the introduction of a new Valentine's Day dragon. Additionally, the Valentine season is the only time past Valentine's Day dragons can produce eggs of their own breeds or be found in a special Valentine biome of the cave.

Valentine's Day dragons[]

Valentine's Day dragons are limited release dragons that can only be found during the Valentine season. Starting on February 8 of each year, past Valentine's Day dragons may be bred or found in the temporary "Valentine" biome of the cave. On February 14, a new Valentine's Day dragon is released in all biomes of the cave.

Similar to Holiday dragons, Valentine's Day dragons are limited to two cave-born dragons per breed per scroll. This limit includes frozen cave-born hatchlings, but does not apply to any bred Valentine's Day dragons. Users can check their status for each breed on the egg limits help page.

Traditionally, Valentine's Day dragons have been single-gender breeds, with the gender alternating every year (odd years female, even years male).

Sweetling mechanics[]

Sweetling alternate adult

Alternate Sweetling adult

Sweetlings have a unique alternate mechanic. During the original 2010 release, a bug caused certain users' eggs to automatically abandon, despite the users not exceeding the scroll limit for Valentine's Day breeds. The bug was fixed, and the users affected by it were given a black and red alternate Sweetling sprite.

When the scroll limits for bred Valentine's Day dragons were relaxed, the alternate coloration was scroll-linked. Any Sweetling on the scroll of a user who had alternate Sweetlings would also become an alternate. If an alt Sweetling hatchling was transferred to a non-alt scroll, it would become a regular Sweetling again.

In 2018, it was announced that the alternate Sweetling mechanic would be retired. However, following feedback from users, the mechanic was merely adjusted. Now only offspring of an alt could become an alt, and only if it is on an alt holder's scroll.[1]

Note: Even after hatching, an alt Sweetling will revert to the standard Sweetling coloring if the hatchling is transferred to a non-alt scroll.
