Gold Dragons are one of the original species on the site, having been released on June 2, 2007, alongside Bright Pink and Neglected Dragons. These dragons are known for residing in the highest tiers of rarity on the site.

Because of their popularity, TJ09 has made a joke page referencing Gold dragons. It can be found here after adding "makeallmyeggsgold" after "dragcave.net/" in the address bar. The resulting text is: "Yeah right."

On January 1, 2012, the Golds received a sprite update, gaining dimorphism, new poses, and shading. The update was released in celebration of the Year of the Dragon and the New Year. These sprites were conceived roughly 4–5 years ago in the Sprite Replacement sub-forum, where they were publicly and actively worked upon. According to the attached poll, ~800 votes were in favour of the replacement while ~100 were against it, with less than 100 null votes. Upon completion, the thread was removed and they remained in Nakase's Deviantart gallery thereafter. The female gold sprite went on to received a Daily Deviation award from Deviantart on April 9, 2009.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit

EggEdit

"This egg is very reflective, almost metallic-looking."

HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. Like the egg it hatched from, it is a very shiny gold."

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. Like the egg it hatched from, it is a very shiny gold.
And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."

AdultEdit

"Gold dragons are the ones most often killed by humans, who consider their scales to be extremely valuable. These golden scales grant them a high level of protection, similar to armor, and they use this to their advantage in battle."
