Dragon is a name for a number of different giant beast-like creatures in The Slayers' world. Most of them take the form of traditional European fantasy dragons; common characteristics include huge size, reptilian features, wings, and powerful breath weapons, although not all dragons have all these features.
Examples of the different kinds of dragons or dragon-like creatures:
- Ryuzoku, aka "the dragon race," who mostly serve as servants of the gods. Typically, they are very powerful, have access to great magic, and sometimes assume human form.
- Shinzoku, aka "the gods," including Flare Dragon Ceifeed, Aqualord Ragradia, Earthlord Rangort, Flarelord Vrabazard and Airlord Valwin are often seen in the form of a dragon.
