The dragons featured in Makin' Magic and Realm of Magic are based on four-legged European dragons, while the dragons featured in Dragon Valley are based on two-legged Wyverns. Dragons also appear in the intro of The Sims Medieval, although they are only mentioned in-game
The Sims: Makin' Magic
Dragons are hatched from Dragon Eggs, which can be purchased from Vicki Vampiress in Magic Town for 49 MagiCoins. Vicki's cart also sells dragon treats and toys as well, which are needed to care for the dragon. There is no limit on how many dragons can be owned by a family.
There are a number of benefits to having a dragon over standard pets. When groomed they may drop Dragon Scales, and when tickled they may drop Dragon Tears, both of which are valuable magic ingredients for spell and charm making. They also have few motives, and are able to mostly care for themselves with a little provision. The one downside is that they are very dangerous pets, able to start fires and potentially kill Sims.
Types of dragons
There are three different colors of dragons that can be hatched: red, gold and purple. Each one has a different name and temperament.
- Red dragons are very likely to set large objects on fire. Generally they start burning things as soon as they hatch. The dragon's name is Burnie.
- Gold dragons are a bit more disciplined, but won't shy away from torching surrounding objects if it is neglected. The dragon's name is Pyritie.
- Purple dragons are very friendly and hardly ever set things on fire. However, even purple dragons are very difficult creatures to maintain and can still cause fires especially if the dragon is neglected. The dragon's name is Torch.
Upon purchasing a dragon egg, Sims will place it on the lot and can interact with it. They can cradle the egg, rotate it, or play music to it. After 36-48 hours the egg will hatch, and the dragon that will emerge depends on how many times Sims interact with the egg.
- 0 to 6 interactions: Red dragon
- 7 to 13 interactions: Gold dragon
- 14+ interactions: Purple dragon
The nest should be kept after the dragon hatches, as they will use it as a bed.
Caring for a dragon
Dragons have few motives: Hunger, Fun and Energy. They will never need to urinate or bathe, and don't require comfort. There is no way to view their motives, but they will display thought bubbles when in need of attention.
Dragons eat spoiled food, trash, pet food, and primarily flowers, particularly yellow daffodils. When flowers are eaten the object will be deleted and will need to be replaced. Toads are a special dragon delicacy, so caution must be exercised when using the Toadification spell as a Sim who is turned into a toad and eaten by a dragon will die instantly.
Sims should interact with their dragon frequently and restock on dragon treats and toys from Magic Town. Besides torching various items around a lot, dragons can torch visiting Sims as well, resulting in the death of the victim.
Neglected dragons will start fires more frequently, and if severely neglected they will permanently move out of the household never to return. Another dragon can be acquired from a new dragon egg.
The Sims 3 Store
Dragons return as interactive small pets that can hatch from dragon eggs. A dragon egg can be purchased in buy mode for §395. There are four types of dragon: Green, Purple, Red, and Armored Black. Each dragon will give a special moodlet when Sims hold them, which will increase certain motives: energy and hygiene for red dragons, hunger and bladder for green dragons, fun and social for purple dragons, and energy and hunger for armored black dragons.
A green dragon is a dragon that hoards and protects treasures. It also helps Sims with gardening. A purple dragon is a dragon of sunshine and happiness that also loves to socialize and party. A red dragon is a fearless and aggressive dragon that can torch the enemies of Sims and singe them. The armored black dragon is a mysterious dragon. It has the ability to transform Sims into zombies[TS3:SN], summon ghosts, and reward the Sim with a death flower. The armored black dragon is only available if The Duke of Bows Renaissance Faire Venue, which can be downloaded separately, is also installed.
The chances of hatching a particular type of dragon can be increased by using certain interactions while it's still an egg. "Gossip About Love of Fire" interaction increases the chance of getting a red dragon, "Talk About Friends" for a purple dragon, "Talk About Weather" for a green dragon, and "Converse about Existentialism" for an armored black dragon.
- The dragons can be sold for §1,000 each, making them profitable as a way to make cash.
The Sims FreePlay
Dragons return in The Sims FreePlay, in the Wizards and Witches update, which also includes spell casting, broom riding and other themed objects. Dragons are pets which Sims can own.
