Game Description
When first observed, the pyrite dragon was thought to be a gold dragon because of the magnificent luster of its wings and horns. Closer inspection revealed this was a foolish assumption, since the gold dragon is notoriously heavier than its pyrite cousin. Nevertheless, many witches and wizards believe this dragon to bring good fortune to any upon whom the shadow of its flying form falls. This dragon cannot breed at this time.


The Pyrite Dragon can be bred by using an Iron Dragon and a Thunder Dragon, in either order, at the Breeding Cave/Epic Breeding Island.

Possible References

  • The mistaking of the Pyrite Dragon for the Gold Dragon is likely a reference to the mineral pyrite's common name, "Fool's Gold", which it was given by prospectors who often mistook it for the much rarer metal due to its yellowish colour and metallic lustre.
  • The way the Gold Dragon is said to be heavier than the Pyrite Dragon may be a reference to how gold is much more dense than iron pyrite.
