Polygon Staff’s favorite dragons from movies and TV
This list from Polygon is so much fun. Maleficent leading off the batting order is genius! And the inclusion of Haku from Spirited Away? A totally class move. It was nearly impossible for me to think of anything missing from this long, thorough, and well-sourced list. I am personally partial to the Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which didn’t make the cut, but I guess that’s understandable, because he was super scary and didn’t really form much of a relationship to the characters. What do you think?
The Polygon staff has put our heads (and wings) together to bring you our favorite dragons from movies and TV beyond the world of Westeros. Included are fearsome dragons, silly dragons, and pretty much everything in between.
Who are your favorite dragons in fiction? We limited our selections to movies and TV, but that doesn’t mean you have to!
