The Dragon is a minor antagonist from the Jake and the Never Land Pirates special episode "Jake Saves Bucky". The dragon lives on the active volcano-covered island known as the Island of Bell guarding the path to the legendary golden bell. He is known to hate visitors and will attack any and all who will invade the island.
Role in the series
After Jake and his crew sneak aboard the Jolly Roger with help from Peter Pan, they retrieve the other half of the pirate code scroll from a sleeping Captain Hook. They learn that if they can retrieve the golden bell, Bucky would be theirs once more. The only thing standing in the sea pups' way was the feared fire-breathing dragon. After flying to the Island of Bell, the dragon appears to challenge the pirates. Jake and Peter distract the dragon, allowing Izzy and Skully to retrieve the golden bell.. The dragon is last seen constantly chasing after his own tail in the maze-like caves, whilst Jake and his crew regroup to steal the bell, and save Bucky from Captain Hook.
In the Season 4 episode, Tales of Captain Buzzard, the dragon re-appears and traps Captain Buzzard, Hook, Smee, Sharky, and Bones in a cave. Eventually Captain Jake and his crew rescue them, and with the help of Izzy's Pixie Dust, the dragon is sent flying, presumably back to the Island of Bell.
- Whilst the dragon doesn't make any appearances in between the episodes, Jake Saves Bucky and Tales of Captain Buzzard, his character model was used for Captain Flynn's dragon companion, Belchy, who appears in the episode, Cubby's Tall Tale.
- Despite being called a dragon he actually resembles a Wyvern, the key difference has been that a wyvern has two legs, whereas a dragon has four. However, this distinction is not commonly observed in the heraldry of other European countries, where two-legged dragon-like creatures being called dragons is entirely acceptable.
