The dragon is one of Skorne's guardians who takes charge over the Mountain Kingdom. It holds the first shard and lives in an old cave. The Ice Axe of Untar freezes it temporarily.


Fireball: Dragons shoots out one or two fireballs at random. The one goes straight for the player while, the two go off in separate directions. Fire Breath: Dragon breathes a stream of fire in a sweeping motion. Ground Pound: Dragon slams his claws onto the ground releasing a shockwave. Wing Wave: Dragon flaps his wings causing two waves to go forth and damage the player.

Gauntlet: Dark Legacy

The Dragon holds the second Shard. He is the guardian of the Mountain Kingdom, and is weak to the Ice Axe.


The Dragon is bright red, and draws influence from the European Dragon. He is weak to the Ice Axe which is found in the Castle Barracks of the Castle Stronghold.


As the player enters the level, the dragon roars to initiate the battle. If the hero has found the Ice Axe, the hero will throw the Ice Axe at the Dragon and reduce his health substantially. The battlefield has multiple rocks scattered around the area, which the player can use to hide behind. Once the Dragon loses all of its health, it roars in anguish and falls to the ground and disintegrates.


Wing Wave: The Dragon flaps its wings and knocks the player down. The hero will be knocked down whether they are behind a rock or not. Fire Breath: The Dragon breathes fire from left to right. Fireball: The Dragon shoots one or two balls of fire at the player (if one ball, it heads for the player; if two, they go on either side) Claw: The Dragon will slash at the player with its claws if the hero gets close enough. Ground Pound: The Dragon uses one claw to hit the ground and send out a shockwave. This attack can be dodged if the hero is behind a rock.
