This article contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and/or official bonus maps.

Dragons are dragon creeps used in Warcraft III. They can be bought at Dragon Roosts and can be encountered on most tilesets. They are the single most powerful flying unit obtainable in melee games.

There were originally five different colors of dragons, one for each of the main dragonflights, but The Frozen Throne added a sixth one for the nether dragons. The colors of the dragons varies depending on the tileset of the map,[1][2] with the nether dragon broodmother fittingly looking like a black dragon.

Blue dragons have a Freezing Breath ability which slows unit for 10 seconds and Bronze dragons have a Lightning Attack. Otherwise, the different colors of dragons are the same and their stats are identical.
