Possible References

  • The Shield Dragon has many references to the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise:
    • The line "arriving in a fury in the nick of time" in the Shield Dragon's description is likely a reference to the Marvel Comics character Nick Fury, who is the leader of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D. during most of its appearances in the Marvel Universe.
    • The description of the Shield Dragon's scales appearing to be made of iron may be a reference to Iron Man, who is one of the Avengers - a team founded by Nick Fury and supervised by S.H.I.E.L.D..
    • The Shield Dragon's breeding combination is another reference to the Marvel Universe. Hydra is the name of a criminal organization in the universe which is often seen as the nemesis to the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. The phrase "Hail HYDRA!" is often used by a member of the organization to show loyalty, or reveal their true alignment in a dramatic fashion.
    • The first letters of the adjectives used to describe the Shield Dragon in its description, "strong, honorable, interesting, elegant, loyal, and devoted," also spell the word "S.H.I.E.L.D".
    • The Shield Dragon was likely released to celebrate the May 6, 2016 release of Captain America: Civil War, the latest installment in the MCU franchise at the time.
