The Dragon is an enemy encountered in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex, only appearing in Wizards and Lizards. It chases Crash through the castle, occasionally getting stuck in a doorway. Once Crash escapes from it, falls down, or the dragon catches Crash, it will stop, roar, and breathe fire.
The dragon returns once again for a cameo at Dragon Mines in Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, where it is unable to spit fire. It also appears in Nitro Court where it simply sits atop a wall overlooking the battle arena.
