The Shadow Scale (or simply Plasma Dragon from the alpha) is a medium-sized dragon whose element is plasma. It has a medium-build and has a recodnizeable arrow-shaped body build that makes it appear more aerodynamic. It is the third fastest dragon within the game with the only two creatures able to outspeed it being Signe Crest and Bioluminescent Dragon. Shadow Scale has four legs and two large wide wings. Its tail has numerous fin-like structures that help the creature to stabilize and manivere during flight. True to its name Shadow Scale's official coloration consists of various darker shades of blues, teals and blacks, which help it to camoflaudge in the night sky and darker environments. This dragon is the community's most favourite dragon as it bears a slight resemblance and inspiration from the DreamWorks' How to Train Your Dragon movies mascot Toothless the Night Fury.

Shadow Scale is one of the three free playable creatures along with; Flame Stalker, Inferno Ravager and Fire Elemental. It was the first dragon to have its ability revealed and added to the game.

Special Ability

The Shadow Scale's ability is invisibility which is a cloacking ability that allows it to hide in plain sight. When crouched for an extended period of time, the Shadow Scale will become cloaked, taking on a transparent appearance. While remaining still they are mostly protected and unseen by AI creatures, but it is possible for other dragons to see an invisible Shadow Scales when they move or stand still. However Flame Stalkers are capable of seeing and tracking invisible Shadow Scales trough their thermal sense.


Shadow Scales are piscivores their diet consisting mostly of fish, but they will eat other types of meat if necessary to survive. According to lore they used to live next to the sea where they could fish various types of sea life before they were driven away from their natural habitat.

Considered to be a "glass cannon", the Shadow Scales can inflict a lot of damage to non-plasma type creatures with their plasma blast. The use of their ability require precision as they do not have as much bile as other dragon species. Despite its low health and bile capacity, Shadow Scales are one the fastest dragon in the game, and are capable of running away from most of the other creatures in case they have to retreat from a battle or caught off guard by another predator.
