A dragon (Draconis Rex) is a large winged reptilian monster (though rarely seen flying) and possesses the ability to exhale dragonfire. Since a dragon's fiery breath attack can hit over 45+ damage, to safely fight them, an Anti-dragon shield or Anti-fire potion is almost always required. If both the shield and the potion are used, 100% of the damage is prevented in most cases (with the exception of the King Black Dragon's special breaths).

- In a letter to a dragon, they stated they CAN fly. They are not seen flying because they prefer to eat humans on the ground.
- Dragons are thought to be the descendants of the powerful, extinct race known as Dragonkin.
- During the quest Dragon slayer, there's a short cutscene where you can see Elvarg fly. This is the only time in RuneScape when a dragon is seen flying.
- The combat level of the chromatic dragons increases with a trend similar to that of the rank of the colour of a karate belt.
