The Dragon is a mythical Animal Minifigure which was originally released in 1993. Several versions of the dragon have been released since its debut. A dragon named Burno was planned in the early stages of LEGO Universe.

Background

Version 1

Dragons were first introduced in the 1993 Dragon Masters subtheme of Castle. These first dragons were green with red wings and only three dragons were initially available in this subtheme. With the addition of the 1997 Fright Knights subtheme dragons were reintroduced, but this time they were black with transparent red wings. After the Fright Knights were discontinued in 1998 dragons were not seen again, save the minor appearance in the game LEGO Racers (Game) and Knights' Kingdom subtheme in 2000. Those dragons consisted of a body piece with fixed legs and movable arms. The seperate pieces that made up the head and the tail were later reused as parts of the crocodile and the arms reappeared as parts of several dinosaurs in Studios, Dino Island and Dinosaurs

Version 1.5, Oriental Dragon

The 2003 Adventurers set 7419 Dragon Fortress from the Orient Expedition sub-theme, was the first and only set to included an embellished black Oriental style dragon, which utilized two pieces exclusive to this set: an embellished serphant-like tail piece, and a new gold head piece.

Version 2, Vikings & Harry Potter Dragons

There were no new dragons until 2005, when several different dragon figures were included in sets of the new Vikings line. The dragons were made up of various assembled pieces, much like a typical LEGO model, instead of being a standard minifigure. Those dragons were slightly different from each other and had only some elements in common, such as the head, which was only available in Vikings sets (and one Knights' Kingdom II set from 2008, but merely as an ornament and not as part of a dragon), the wings, which were also used in later dragon models, and the tail pieces, which made their debut as dinosaur tails in 2001. The legs and arms of these creatures were fully movable.

2005 also saw the release of 4767 Harry and the Hungarian Horntail which included a new version of the dragon minifigure. This dragon consisted of a new armless body piece with fixed legs and a head exclusive to this set. The wings were the same as in the Vikings dragons, save the color. The tail tip was a new piece that was later reused in the new version of the Castle dragon.

Version 2.5

In 2007 a new dragon model was introduced for the new Castle theme. The dragons were available in either black, dark red or green. The wings were the same as in the dragons from 2005. Other than the previous dragons the new one had an actual separate neck, which was taken from the 2001 dinosaurs (and was also used as an elephant's trunk in the meantime. The arms and legs were new pieces, as well as the head. The tail tip was the same one used on the Hungarian Horntail from 2005.

The LEGO Movie: In the movie, the red 2.5 version of the dragon is seen in Middle Zealand. It nearly collided with the Batmobile, but missed. It could be seen roasting a Pig on a spit as the Batmobile ascended the rainbow leading to Cloud Cuckoo Land. It was soon seen stacking bricks in the background with a guard and Sir Stackabrick. It can finally be seen during the Battle of Bricksburg.
