Health: 80 ( × 40) Armor: 10 () Hard Attack Strength: Fire effect Spawning: One per dragon lair Weakness: Snowballs Size: A little smaller as the Ender dragon Details: The red dragon is a neutral mob that spawns in dragon lairs. They do not break terrain. They usually rest in the dragon lair, but can occasionally fly around it. If you attack it or try taking anything in the dragon lair, it will attack you. It attacks you by breathing fire on you. The "fire" is a lot of fire particles that fly up to seven blocks away. The particles cannot go through blocks. If the fire particles touch you, you get lit on fire. The dragon can breath fire for around three seconds. All of its body is protected by its scales, except for its underbelly, which has no armor. Snowballs harm it, even through its armor Tamed Dragons: You can tame dragons as well. Dragon taming works like horse taming, meaning you get on the dragon to tame it. But you can't tame a dragon without giving it gems, like wheat for horses. Dragons will take iron ingots, gold ingots, lapis lazuli, and diamonds. When tamed, the heart particles will appear. You can now get on the dragon, but like horses you cannot move the dragon unless you put a saddle on the dragon. The movement is normal, but instead of jumping, the spacebar makes the dragon fly. The spacebar flaps the wing once, and you can flap the wings ten times before it has to touch the ground again. Each wing flap raises the dragon two blocks. The dragon will breathe fire on any mob that attacks it, not you. Drops: A dragon drops 2-5 scales,0-3 teeth, 0-3 gold, 1-3 iron, and rarely a diamond
Health: 90 ( × 45) Armor: 10 () Hard Attack Strength: 6 () plus freezing effect Spawning: One per ice cavern Weakness: Fire and lava Size: Same as red dragon Details: Frost dragons are bright blue dragons only found in mountains in taiga and tundra biomes. They stay peaceful toward you, unless there is any other dragon near, or there is flint and steel in your hand. They also attack if there is fire nearby. They still attack you like red dragons, except with ice particles that freeze you a little and do some damage. They only spawn in ice caverns, which are the dragon lairs in the winter biomes. Wherever these dragons land, snow appears much like snow golems. Tamed Dragons: These dragons can be tamed and ridden like red dragons Drops: 2-5 scales, 0-3 teeth, and 1-5 ice blocks, 0-3 gold, 1-3 lapis lazuli, and rarely a diamond
Health: 90 ( × 45) Armor: 10 () Hard Attack Strength: 4 () plus burn damage Spawning: One per Nether lair Weakness: Snowballs Size: Same as red dragon Details: Nether dragons are dark red dragons. They spawn in Nether dragon lairs, but usually fly around the Nether. They still try to keep near the lair in case of invaders. Nether dragons are always aggressive toward you. Nether dragons are like red dragons, they burn you and are weak to snowballs, but Nether dragons are more like a Nether mini-boss. The will see you from 100 blocks like Ghasts, and will fly at you to attack you. Nether dragons sometimes attack Ghasts Tamed Dragons: You cannot tame Nether dragons Drops: 2-5 scales, 0-3 teeth, 1-5 Netherrack, 0-5 gold, 1-8 iron, and very, very rarely a Nether star
Size: Around 7 blocks high, 10 long, and 7 wide Generation: Only in extreme hills biome Details: The dragon lair is a rare cave-like structure only generated in extreme hills biome. They only generate on cliffs and hills. It looks like a tall and wide cave entrance, but it ends ten blocks in. The walls and ground have miscellaneous ores that appear by how rare they are. If you try to mine an of the ore, the dragon attacks you
Size: Same as dragon lairs Generation: In big hills and mountains in taiga and tundra biomes Details: These ice caverns are rarer than other dragon lairs, basically because there are not that many suitable locations for them to generate. These caverns look just like dragon lairs, but are made of ice. There are a bigger chance of different ores on the floor here
Size: Same as dragon lairs Generation: In the Nether in cliffs Details: These dragon lairs are made of Nether brick and Netherrack. The Netherrack in the lair burns constantly. The ground has the same treasures as other lairs. At the back of the lair is a chest. The chest contains some valuables inside, like ingots, tools, armor, and sometimes scale armor

Questions and Answers-
Is this overpowered?
No, dragons are not overpowered. They don't break blocks, and don't seek you out to kill you. When you ride them, other people can hide or fight.
But the flying is overpowered...
Nope. It would be hard to shoot/breathe fire while on a dragon. But you still can. Meanwhile, people on the ground can shoot up at you pretty easily. Remember that you can crash a dragon.
What if servers don't want dragon?
There would be a new option in the server properties file that you can change. It would say "spawn-dragons=" and you say "true" or "false". Also, a new gamerule would be added called "dragonGriefing" would be added.
Don't say this is OP, because the dragons have limits and weaknesses.Just to make clear, the dragons CANNOT BREAK LANDSCAPE.These would be hard to use as a griefing weapon. If you think they are too hard to beat, ask yourself why you attacked them in the first place.
I love the idea. I just don't think players should be able to ride dragons, that's just too much. With a mod, sure that'd be fun. But I don't like the thought of just casually riding a dragon. I mean, you can't ride anymore enemy mobs so I don't think they should switch it up and allow you to fly on dragons, especially with how bad you could grief. Sure, a flint and steel could do as much damage, but you will get banned quickly, and if you're on a dragon, shooting out fire for 3 seconds can catch each house in a town on fire. I don't think riding the dragons is a very good idea, but the idea with the blocks, the dragon's lair, I love it.

My girlfriend broke up with me 'cuz I make too many Linkin Park references. But in the end, it doesn't even matter.
Egg: Only hatch when near level 15 Light. Being "Tamed" Only makes him not attack you, and attack hostile mobs when he leaves the lair instead. It needs 500 Of each meat to do that.
What do you think 'bout it, OP?
If you're going to be able to ride a dragon that can spew fireballs, no matter what the fire rate, it should require a massive "offering" like a pile of over 1000 meat, not scales. I know they would be a bit hard to get, but if I were a dragon and you offered me scales, I would identify you as a threat and either fly away or roast you.

If Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter were all destroyed, 99% of teens would go insane. If you're one of the 1% that would be laughing at them, copy this into your signature and hope it happens.
No I will not +1 you unless you say something worth +1ing. Respect is earned, not given.
Everyone has a thing with riding things. If you actually can find a rare dragon lair, and craft a pricy saddle, you can have the benefit of burning things. But the idea of giving it something sounds pretty good...
