No one is sure how Cosmic Dragons first came to Earth, or why the bespattered patterns on their coats so closely resemble the stars above. However, due to their unique ability to fly in extremely high altitudes, some dragon experts believe that Cosmic Dragons flew to Earth from the stars themselves.
Ancient Caretakers revered Cosmic Dragons for their star-spangled scales. With the star patterns on their coats matching constellations in the sky, many Caretakers believed Cosmic Dragons to be supernatural, even prophetic heralds.
Astronomers have long wondered about the 'blurring effect' of some constellations across the sky. This refers to groups of stars that seem to move across the sky much quicker than others. Little do they know these are caused by Cosmic Dragons flying in low orbit around the planet, searching for a place to land.
Groups of dragons are drawn toward Epic Cosmic Dragons - literally and physically. Caretakers aren't sure if Epic Cosmic Dragons are naturally charismatic or whether their stellar properties give them a slight gravitational pull.
By breeding a dragon that provides the Yellow type with a dragon that provides the Purple type. Missing requirements cannot be fulfilled by the splitting of minor types; parents must have the originally required types without splitting.
By breeding two parents that collectively contribute only the Cosmic and Diamond types.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Cosmic Dragon, you may get other offspring instead. Check the Breeding Calculator to view all of the possible results of combining a particular pair of parents.
The Cosmic Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Cosmic type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Yellow and Purple) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Cosmic is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Cosmic type can split into Yellow and Purple. However, if it is split, then Cosmic is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Cosmic in a pool will either add the Cosmic type if it does not split or the Yellow and Purple types if it does split. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when both parents possess the Cosmic type. In this case, Cosmic can contribute both itself and its split colors at the same time.
Although the Cosmic type can split into Yellow and Purple for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Cosmic Dragon with an Island Dragon only counts as three types: Cosmic, Green, and Blue.
The Cosmic Dragon is currently the 5th non-diamond-type single type dragon that can be bred without using basic dragons. Ex: Breeding a Charm Dragon with a Mist Dragon can result in a Cosmic Dragon because the correct types are present.
The Cosmic Dragon's design is based upon the Serpent Dragons, although there are differences between the two.
