I am the watcher of the world..The Dragon of Evil-!!
 ― Dragon of Evil[source]

The Dragon of Evil also known as the Dragon of Darkness,[1] is one of the Prime Dragons in Lucid Adventure. He is one of the two Dragons created by Han Gun-Jae to act as a balance to The Four Gods[1] and his role is The Watcher of the World.[2]

He is the creator of the Dragon Knight Class and the Master of Dragon Mountain. The Dragon of Evil's purpose is to lead Team Dark to see the Lucid Adventure's ending.[3]


In his humanoid form, the Dragon of Evil has messy black hair, red eyes, and shark-like teeth. He is shown to be half naked in all his appearances, wearing only blue ripped jeans, no shoes, and wearing bandages around his head to his right arm. His skin starts to darken around his hands and feet as well.

According to Dark, he looked like a kid in his puberty and an anime character due to the bandages around his arm.

In his dragon form, he is a gargantuan black dragon with multiple red eyes across his face.




The Dragon of Evil is playful of everything, finding Dark's tantrum against him amusing and making a new class called the Dragon Knights because he was fond of the Ancient Knights that fought the Demons. He had fun whilst observing Heart Heater fight for his life against Xiang Yu even when Heart Heater made a blunder and said that Xiang Yu got him good. When he finally possessed Heart Heater, he had toyed with Xiang Yu, dodging and blocking one of Xiang Yu's attack with his teeth.

However, he has a more serious side. First becoming angry when Xiang Yu almost killed Heart Heater and scaring the former away, the second when he had asked Xiang Yu a serious question and proceeded to kill him for picking the wrong answer, and the third when he had told Dacon, The Combat Npc, that she could do nothing to him now that the Gods are gone and proceeded to make Giga's army, including Sam Han to bend the knee against him for attempting to attack him.

He's also the type to hide his care for other people and doesn't like being cared for as shown he said that in the past, Heart Heater cared about the Dragon of Evil, not knowing his place.




As an Ancient Dragon, the Dragon of Evil is Redinaia's ancestor as it is said that all ancient dragons come from him and the Dragon of Light.[4] Although the relationship shown between them are shown to be master-apprentice.

Redinaea highly respects him as her master, showing immediate concern when she accidentally stomped her master's hellfire seedlings whilst in a fight with No Name.[5]

Heart Heater

Heart Heater is the Dragon of Evil's most favorite student, giving him the preferential treatment amongst his apprentices according to Paron, and caring about him despite Heart Heater not attending his birthday or his apprentices' funerals.[6]

The Dragon of Evil is in charge of Heart Heater's very own life, deciding when his death-day will be. He had lightly scolded Heart Heater for being snaky, noticing many things and caring about him, not knowing his place.[2]


They have an ordinary master-apprentice relationship. Paron highly respects the Dragon of Evil as he tried to kill Dark for disrespecting his master.

Team Dark

As the appointed guide of Team Dark, the Dragon of Evil wanted to meet and test Team Dark under the context of 'punishing' Heart Heater. After they have passed the trial, the Dragon of Evil regarded them as the promised ones stating that they're different from ordinary people.[3]


At first, the Dragon of Evil found Dark amusing when the latter went on a rant that he is the boss of Heart Heater, not the Dragon of Evil. The Dragon of Evil then told him to prove that he is Heart Heater's new master by undergoing the same trial Heart Heater went through and called him 'pathetic' if he couldn't pass the same trial as Heart Heater did.[7]

During the trial, he regarded Dark as someone who thinks everything is easy and everyone can be beaten even though he'll never admit it.[8]

Soon after Dark and his friends passed the trial, The Dragon of Evil reluctantly acknowledged Dark as Heart Heater's master even awarding them a title, 'Cursed Hero', after Dark demanded a reward.[3]

Hardcore Leveling Warrior

Hardcore Leveling Warrior fears the Dragon of Evil, as shown when he was threatened by the Dragon of Evil for thinking about stealing his treasures and apologized which is unlikely of him, even praising the Dragon of Evil's treasures.[6]

After his trial, the Dragon of Evil teased him for being the last person to pass the trial. Hardcore Leveling Warrior brushed this off and asked the Dragon of Evil if the illusion he showed him was real to which the Dragon of Evil called him out saying that he acts all confident but is actually filled with anguish deep down. The Dragon of Evil ambiguously answered the question which left Hardcore Leveling Warrior with a distraught expression.[3]


At first when Sora bravely accepted the Dragon of Evil's trial, there was not much interaction between them. The Dragon of Evil called her an innocent child, a fool who believes that everything can be achieved with pure hard worked regardless of the nature of the world when she was undergoing her trial though seemingly interested by calling her an 'unknown potential'.[8]

When she came to Dragon Mountain, he noticed her wandering around and invited her to his home. Dragon of Evil thought that she was a daring human for desiring to devour his tail, the pride of Dragons, calling her reckless despite knowing full well that she'll perish from Lucid Adventure if he devours her. Though he tested and frightened her, all he needed was her undaunted answer to his question of whether she truly wanted to devour his flesh. Once she did, he called her impressive and gave her his tail without hesitation.[9]

Sora is the first human that the Dragon of Evil called by their name, thanking her for giving him food made after the real world ones.[9]


Dragon of Light

The Dragon of Light is the other prime Dragon that was created to balance The Gods. They are not on good terms and have been fighting each other for over a millennium. The Dragon of Evil holds a grudge against her for wounding him, calling her a "bitch". After the Dragon of Evil, who had taken over Heart Heater's body completely, forced Giga to kneel before him, the Dragon of Light appeared on the battlefield in the form of her clone and reiterated that they were the balancers of the world.[10] They stared at each other for quite some time as if the world stood still before the silence was broken by Sora and Hephai.[10]

Spirit of the Mirror

The Dragon of Evil sealed the Spirit of the Mirror as punishment for messing with his lady.[11]

Absolute God

Not much is known about the relations between him and Roy Han, though it can be assumed that he respects him as the Absolute God of Lucid Adventure as he is his creator.[6]

The Witch

The Dragon of Evil respects the Witch, asking her if the trial he had Dark's team undergo was what she wanted, to which she approved.[12] The Witch tasked the Dragon of Evil to be the guide of Dark's team.[3]



...He has a different kind of strength to The Dragon of Light...He is a terrifying guy..

As one of the two beings created to balance The Gods, the Dragon of Evil is one of the absolute powers in Lucid Adventure. After the death of the Gods, the Dragon of Evil along with the Dragon of Light, are the strongest beings in the game. As one of the creator of all the Dragons, The Dragon of Evil is the Master of All Dragons. He also created and commanded the powerful Dragon Knights which are inspired from the Ancient Knights.[13]

Despite his heavily wounded state from his millennium battle with the Dragon of Light, his reputation is still dangerous enough for Giga's Security Team to abandon their pursuit of Hardcore Leveling Warrior in Dragon Mountain for fear of encountering him.[14]The Dragon of Evil sealed the powerful being Spirit of the Mirror in The Cave of Atonement.[11]

Heart Heater feared The Dragon of Evil taking over his body because of the amount of destruction it would cause and he was proven correct. After taking control of Heart Heater's Body, The Dragon of Evil was able to easily subdue and eventually kill Xiang Yu, despite the latter specialising in fighting Dragons and wielding Dual Personal Attributes.

Such is the transcendence of The Dragon of Evil, that he was able to stop Dacon, The NPC of Combat, from stopping his fight with Xiang Yu despite Giga forfeiting the match. Despite Dacon's protest, citing that The Dragon of Evil is going against the will of the world, The Evil Dragon simply scuffed at her and said that she could not stop him now that The Gods have gone.[15]

What are you doing you idiots!!! Do you all wish to be destroyed here? Wake up!!

The Dragon of Evil's power caused the relaxed look on Stone's face to disappear. Stone called the Dragon of Evil a a "terrifying guy".[2] When Han Sung-Gong mobilized all of Giga's forces to take down the Dragon of Evil, Stone went into rage and asked if Giga were trying to get themselves killed.[15] All of Giga's forces eventually knelt down in submission after the Dragon of Evil used his dragon magic.[10]

The Dragons began to move.
 ― Narrator

Ever since the Dragon of Evil and the Dragon of Light fully recovered, they began to move. Their sudden activity caused four castles of New Nightmare to have been destroyed and more than 300 Nightmares have perished under their onslaught. Such is their tremendous power that their clear and distinctive mana could be felt from thousands of miles away as No Name sensed it from Lakiren Castle.[16][17]

Mental Manipulation Resistance: The Dragon of Evil's Mental Manipulation Resistance is incredibly high that the Spirit of the Mirror's Mind Manipulation skills were ineffective against him.[11]

Sealing: The Dragon of Evil's sealing ability appears to be absolute. He has the ability to permanently seal beings. He sealed Spirit of the Mirror in The Cave Atonement which appears to be inescapable. The only way of escape for Spirit of the Mirror was to use a Gambler's 'Bet' skill and swap places with them.[11]

A Dragon Sees All: The Dragon of Evil is able to see and read the thoughts of any person he chooses. He is also able to see the real life appearances of each player in the real world as well.

Fear Inducement: The Dragon of Evil's mere presence stopped Xiang Yu from killing Heart Heater and forced Xiang Yu to back off. Xiang Yu was utterly terrified and feared that he would be eaten. After The Dragon of Evil took over Heart Heater's body, the fear Xiang Yu experienced was something he had not experienced since starting the game. Xiang Yu feared for his life and trembled until he he was snapped out of it by Sam Han-Gong.[2]

A vivid description of this fear was shown when the Dragon of Evil merely asked if she was sure on devouring his flesh. Sora felt immense fear when the eye of the Dragon of Evil stared at her, it felt as if her whole body was burning from both inside and out.[9]

Class Creation <Dragon Knights>: The Dragon of Evil had the power to create his own class in Lucid Adventure known as the Dragon Knights. He created them after taking a liking to the Ancient Knights.

  • Dragon of Evil's Mana: As well as being able to use Dragon Mana, Dragon Knights can use The Dragon of Evil's mana directly. Although they need permission to use his power, they can do so without asking him as Heart Heater showed.[2]
  • Body Takeover: The Dragon of Evil has the ability to take over a Dragon Knight's body completely when they are using his mana. He knocked out Heart Heater and took 100% control of Heart Heater's body to battle Xiang Yu.[2]

Player Character Deletion: Those who are devoured by The Dragon of Evil can never return to Lucid Adventure. If a player is eaten by The Evil Dragon, their game character is permanently terminated.[7]

Heart Heater (100% Controlled by Dragon of Evil)

The Dragon of Evil knocked Heart Heater out and took over his body. In this form, The Dragon of Evil was able to withstand attacks from Xiang Yu who had opened his Double Personal Attributes and gained the power of a transcendent being. Dragon of Evil was able to easily defeat Xiang Yu.[2] It is unclear how much of The Dragon of Evil's true abilities can be used in this form.

Transcendent Physical Abilities: Whilst using Heart Heater's body, the Dragon of Evil displayed transcendent physical abilities that completely defied logic.[2]

  • Transcendent Attack Power: The Dragon of Evil was able to break Xiang Yu's Spear with his teeth.[2] A simple flick of The Dragon of Evil's finger sent Dacon into a giant rock.[15] Dragon of Evil was able to bite off Xiang Yu's head.[15]
  • Transcendent Durability: The Dragon of Evil was able to block Xiang Yu's spear attack with his teeth. After covering Heart Heater's body with his scales, The Dragon of Evil easily tanked Xiang Yu's Deadly Strike that Xiang Yu had put his all into. The strike was so powerful that it caused a huge explosion and created a large crater in the ground. The force from the blow was enough to push back the observers of the duel who were standing far away. In fact, where it not for the Dragon of Evil's scales covering Heart heater's body, Heart Heater would have disappeared without a trace.[15]
  • Transcendent Agility: The Dragon of Evil was able to avoid blows from Xiang Yu who had opened his Double Personal Attribute from point blank range. He managed to avoid Xiang Yu's five-pronged attack and prevented it from hitting the part of Heart Heater's body that was not covered by The Dragon of Evil.[2]
  • Transcendent Mana: Just by giving off mana, the Dragon of Evil was able to break up Xiang Yu's ultimate blow that had been built up in many layers of his mana. The Evil Dragon blocked the blow so easily.[2]

  • Wave of Evil: The Dragon of Evil clenches his fist which releases a powerful wave that forces lesser beings to kneel before him.

Parting with Heart Heater

At some point in the past, Heart Heater decided to leave the Dragon of Evil after passing the Dragon's Trial. The Dragon of Evil asks Heart Heater if he is willing to leave and risk losing his power and immortality.[19]

The Dragon of Evil decides to take an eye from Heart Heater to 'monitor' him. He tells Heart Heater not to even think about using his power without consent. Heart Heater smiles and tells the Evil Dragon he will return when he finds 'her'.[20]

Season 1

Trial of a Dragon Arc

After sensing Heart Heater's use of his powers, The Dragon of Evil summoned for him and Team Dark. As Team Dark came and entered Dragon's Gate, Heart Heater began explaining who the Dragon of Evil was and their relationship. They then met the Dragon of Evil and Heart Heater offered him the Horn of a Black Unicorn. After the Dragon of Evil ate the offering, he proceeded to tell Heart Heater why he summoned him and told him to stay. This led to Dark getting mad and started yelling at the Dragon of Evil for trying to 'boss around' Heart Heater. However, the Dragon of Evil found this funny and decided to put Team Dark through the Trial of a Dragon. The Dragon of Evil reprimanded Heart Heater for protesting against it

Team Dark accepts the challenge and the Dragon of Evil teleports them each to different dimensions. As Team Dark's trial went on, the Dragon of Evil asked the Witch if this is what she wanted to which she approves. The Witch then tells the Dragon of Evil that he's the one who'll guide Team Dark to the ending of Lucid Adventure. After Team Dark finished their trials, the Dragon of Evil released Heart Heater and rewarded them with the title, "Cursed Heroes". The Dragon of Evil then told them to leave so that he may rest whilst also thinking of the words the Witch told him.

She passes impressing the dragon who rips off his tail handing it over to her as a reward. He turns to go get some sleep thinking to himself if the witch is happy that all her prophecies have became true.

As Heart Heater was about to die, the Dragon of Evil scared off Xiang Yu and knocked out Heart Heater to possess his body.

After the Dragon of Evil possessed Heart Heater, he toyed with Xiang Yu and easily defeated him. After Xiang Yu's final attack, the Dragon of Evil fully possessed Heart Heater and asked Xiang Yu a question. The Dragon of Evil killed Xiang Yu, permanently deleting him from the game, for picking the wrong answer and made Giga kneel before him when they tried to attack him.

However, the Dragon of Light intervened and confronted him. Both stared at each other in silence for a long time until Sora broke the silence. After the Dragon of Light left, the Dragon of Evil returned Heart Heater's body and left.
