Be nice to your Moon Dragons; they´re very sensitive. As hatchlings, they´re picked on by other dragons because of their ´crater faces.´ These lunar lizards never develop a smoother complexion, but most grow to love their faces in time.
Contrary to popular belief, Moon Dragons are not actually from the Moon, though they are remarkably similar. For instance, the Moon only comes out when the Sun has set, and Moon Dragons (like all black dragons) only appear once the Second Sun has set.
One foolish Caretaker once attempted to fly to the moon in a sleigh with eight adult Moon Dragons harnessed to it. Moon Dragons are capable of flying at very high altitudes, so the Caretaker actually got up to pretty thin atmospheric levels. At this point, he realized he did not bring an air tank, and he turned his sleigh around.
Moon Dragons are even more massive than their large frame suggests. The wings and legs of an Epic Moon Dragon are exceptionally strong to keep the gargantuan creatures moving. In fact, Epic Moon Dragons are so massive, they pull in small objects into orbit around their bodies while in flight, creating small moons of their own.
By breeding two dragons that collectively contribute Black and White to the type pool. If a parent has the appropriate minor types, missing requirements may also be added to the pool, even if neither parent has the originally required types. Minor types that have been split from other minor types can also contribute their component types to the type pool.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Moon 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 Moon 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 Black type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Blue and Purple) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Black is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Black type can split into Blue and Purple. However, if it is split, then Black is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Black in a pool will either add the Black type if it does not split or the Blue and Purple types if it does split.
When considering hybrids of the Black type whose other types are all split type components of Black (Blue and Purple), the Black type may contribute both Black and its split types (Blue and Purple) if both parents have the Black type. For example, breeding a Night Dragon with a Moon Dragon can result in a Deep Dragon because one parent contributed Black while the other contributed Blue (through splitting). Keep in mind that the Black type will not split if it is alone in the pool, so you must use at least one Black hybrid as a parent if you want to take advantage of this method.
Although the Black type can split into Blue 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 Forest Dragon with a Moon Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Black, and White.
The Moon Dragon is the 100th dragon to be released.
The Moon Dragon's design is based upon the Wild Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
