    What about Bowser?



  2. Richard Campos on February 17, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    I think not many people has played the gem of a game that drakengard series is so they can know some other great dragons



  3. Jarrett Owens on February 17, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    #5 Yes! I knew Spyro would crack at least the Top 5.



  4. 9DragoFox6 on February 17, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Mega Charizard X is a dragon.. not Charizard.



  5. GhostMeyer on February 17, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Alduin is the greatest video game villain of all time….. ok maybe after Shepherd



  6. Vankip on February 17, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Мидир: Ну да ну да, пошел я нахер:(



  7. Wolfheart Foxlover on February 17, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Come on Who Said they had to be Enemies… Let’s Make Love Not War…Romance Interests:
    Orlando from Password, Tatsuki from Morenatsu, Zenith from Amorous,
    All The Love Interests from Identity and Angels With Scaly Wings
    I Rest My Case



  8. Azurwrath on February 17, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    They mention Gore Magala but not Rathalos!?



  9. Truth Spreader on February 17, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    1. Thought Bahamut was going to be number 1 on the list
    2.Grigori and Ur dragon should of been in the same spot
    3. No Belial, Wagner or Hindel…..



  10. Branden Kelly on February 17, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    spyro is my favourite dragon video game



  13. Derekzilla Jr 2021 taken by Jackie Griffiths on February 17, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Did you know that Spyro is one of my favorite Character of all time? And Ridley the Space Dragon is my favorite Villain of all time.
    Also I Ship Spyro and Cynder



  14. Mr. Main Influencer on February 17, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Dragon from Adventure on Atari |CS, world famous



  15. Tim Sheppard on February 17, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Like other people i’m a simple person i see Spyro i click



  16. Rickter C. on February 17, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    I thought for sure Rathalos would’ve made this list… 🤔



  17. Lukeigi Buelow on February 17, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    I thought spyro was gonna be in first



  18. Queen Demona on February 17, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    What about Cael from Dragon Rage? Common at least he makes it in honorable mention and you play as him.



  19. nong333 on February 17, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Personally I would replace Seath the Scaleless with Black Dragon Kalameet who has, in my opinion, a way cooler back story within the Dark Souls lore



  20. Insecdroid-Games and Other Crap on February 17, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    As a massive WoW nerd, I’m ashamed that I didn’t think of Deathwing.



  21. Michael Mulligan-Nufer on February 17, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Fun Fact: Bahamut was originally named that in the D&D Monster Manual in 1977 long before FF stole it from Gary Gygax & Co.



  22. ghosttowntomato on February 17, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Love the Deathwing appreciation!



  23. General Grievous on February 17, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    I think just one dragon from Skyrim would be enough, otherwise the whole list would just be dragons from Skyrim. But why is Paarthunax so low?



  24. Terry MacMillan on February 17, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Alduin was way too high. The boss battle was kind of a pushover….unless you play it on legendary difficulty like I did.



  25. xXlAsianManlXx Duh on February 17, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Darkeater midir? Hello?



  26. Silver Wolf on February 17, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    What about the king of dragons from my all time favorite game, Legend of Dragoon?



  27. General Grievous on February 17, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Deathwing: Is the strongest dragon in WoW

    Dovahkiin: theme song plays-



  28. Lukeigi Buelow on February 17, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    I personally like Tom Kenny as spyro then Carlos Ellis rockey



  29. PinoySlayer 23 on February 17, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    What about the divine dragon!!!!
    Legend of dragoon!!!!



  30. Rickter C. on February 17, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    And also if Charizard and Ridley can make the list, why not mention Kazooie as well?



  31. HelenasVenom on February 17, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    actually offended spyro isn’t nr 1



  32. J’zargo The Khajiit on February 17, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Party snacks was nothing compared to j’zargo



  33. Battery on February 17, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Well can deathwing ride a skateboard and toast gnorcs?

    that’s what i thought!



  34. Rafii Hamdan Ramlan on February 17, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    where’s Bahamut from Final Fantasy XIV? it’s super badass dragon that even destroy FFXIV server



  35. Cojalo on February 17, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I think paarthunaax will always be my favourite dragon. Such a wise and lovable character



  36. Jan Carl Matysiak on February 17, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Nicol Bolas has joined the ranks of videogame dragons… Look in the lore that is a candidate on death wing level if his presentation wouldn’t be in an online card game…



  37. Jeswin Raju on February 17, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Charizad is the best



  38. Alejandro C on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Spyro is the best.



  39. Lukeigi Buelow on February 17, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I wonder when we will get Minecraft 2



  40. Tekno Titan on February 17, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Okay but why did Charizard who isn’t even a dragon type (mega doesn’t last so still not a dragon, just looks like one) make it higher than Spyro the actual dragon? Like if Charizard was lower sure, but come on



  41. powerhunter3 on February 17, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    And yet, nobody brings up Demons Souls Dragon God



  42. Groundrunner100 on February 17, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    It was at that moment, Spyro The Dragon, making it to the top 5, earned his spot at the table video game dragon KINGS. 🐉



  43. Shelby Post on February 17, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    I ❤ 🐉s! They’re my 2nd favorite animal, next to 🐈s!



  44. Stuart Nic on February 17, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Were Cynder 🙁



  45. Alex Hancock on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Seath over Midir? D a m n



  46. Jesse Olsen on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Where is dragonite



  47. Cream The Eevee on February 17, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    What about the legendary dragon pokemon from the Sinnoh region? Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina? Shouldn’t they at least get a honourable mention?



  48. GuninGames on February 17, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    nunon fin dovahs vis imzik fin pruzaan ketiz do 20



  49. GG EZ on February 17, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    I feel like Rathalos is more iconic than some of these, even gore magala



  50. Lukeigi Buelow on February 17, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    I wonder what they will do from spyro 4 (I’m not talking about enter the dragonfly)
