Origami Dragons hatch from eggs that are just a little too small for their bodies. To stay perfectly snug in their eggs, Origami Dragons' wings must be folded in on themselves. Even after they hatch, their wings retain their wrinkled look.
Some might think that the thin, pliable wings of the Origami Dragon are a hindrance to flight, but they're actually a great help. Origami Dragons are able to fold their wings to match the air conditions around them, allowing them to glide through the air in the most efficient way possible!
Origami Dragons are very individual creatures. Due to the many complexities of their wings and horns, Origami Dragons are able to contort their bodies in a specific form that is unique to them. While adult Origami Dragons may look the same at a base level, no two are exactly alike.
Epic Origami Dragons are masters of shape-shifting, and over years of intense practice and effort, they can actually manage to fold and control their legs, torsos, tails, and even heads! While this is a remarkable characteristic, it also makes them very hard to find if they're trying to hide, to the bane of Caretakers everywhere.
By breeding two dragons that collectively contribute Pink and Purple 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 Origami 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 Origami 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 Pink type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Red and White) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Pink is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Pink type can split into Red and White. However, if it is split, then Pink is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Pink in a pool will either add the Pink type if it does not split or the Red and White types if it does split.
When considering hybrids of the Pink type whose other types are all split type components of Pink (Red and White), the Pink type may contribute both Pink and its split types (Red and White) if both parents have the Pink type. For example, breeding a Virtue Dragon with an Origami Dragon can result in a Justice Dragon because one parent contributed Pink while the other contributed Red (through splitting). Keep in mind that the Pink type will not split if it is alone in the pool, so you must use at least one Pink hybrid as a parent if you want to take advantage of this method.
Although the Pink type can split into Red and White 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 an Origami Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Pink, and Purple.
The Origami Dragon's design is based upon the Firestorm Dragon's, although there are differences between the two.
