Black-Winged Dragon (character)

Black-Winged Dragon, known as Black-Feather Dragon in the Japanese version is a servant of the Crimson Dragon, commonly referred to as Signer Dragons.

Its present day Signer is Crow Hogan, who obtained its card after finding it in a compartment in the Blackbird Duel Runner.[1]

It was not present when the Crimson Dragon battled the Earthbound Immortals. Life Stream Dragon was present instead.[2]

Appearance[edit]

Black-Winged Dragon is an amphiptere, a type of dragon whose only limbs are its wings. Black-Winged Dragon has a strong bird motif, with feathers covering most of its body and wings, and a yellow-scaled head that resembles a bird's beak. Its orange eyes are in the crook of the scales; red spots in its feathers mimic eyes, giving the illusion of a bird-like head. Black-Winged Dragon has an armored chestplate with a charcoal strip running down its neck and belly, the rest of its armor and its shoulder pads are black. It has Y-shaped wings with several long white feathers and black feathers; as it loses ATK from its effect, these white portions turn red, which is referred to as "turning black" within the series. Instead of limbs, Black-Winged Dragon has six talon-like blades along its torso. Its tail fans out into black feathers, with three long grey feathers extending from the bunched feathers.

Biography[edit]

History[edit]

The Dragons battling Red Nova.

10,000 years before the present day events, Black-Winged Dragon, along with Ancient Fairy Dragon, Black Rose Dragon, Red Dragon Archfiend, Stardust Dragon and the Crimson Dragon fought Red Nova[3]

Robert Pearson used the card "Black-Winged Dragon" up until his death, at which point he had the card hidden in the Blackbird Duel Runner, which he passed on to Crow Hogan.[1][4]

Pre-WRGP[edit]

Crow wagered the card in a Duel against Bolton while investigating Pearson's death, despite not having the card or knowing where it is.[4] During the Duel, Crow's Mark of the Dragon lit up and he found the card in a hidden compartment. Crow used the dragon to win the Duel[1] and has kept its card since.
