The Five Dragons, with the Crimson Dragon behind them
|Appears in (sets)|
|Appears in (anime)|
The Five Dragons are a series of Dragon-Type Synchro Monsters, introduced in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's. These legendary dragons play a part in the legend of the Crimson Dragon, as well as being connected to the Signers themselves. That connection being that these legendary beasts who are actually servants to the Crimson Dragon, were the ones who sealed an evilness within the Nazca Lines.
So far 3 of the Five Dragons have been released in the OCG and TCG: "Stardust Dragon", "Red Dragon Archfiend" and "Black Rose Dragon". "Ancient Fairy Dragon" also has a scheduled OCG release. The supposed mechanical version of the fifth dragon, Power Tool Dragon, was released in Raging Battle in the OCG.
In the anime, Professor Fudo gave the "Stardust Dragon", "Red Dragon Archfiend" and "Black Rose Dragon" Duel Monsters cards to Rex Goodwin. As these three, along with the "Ancient Fairy Dragon" card were originally designed so that their corresponding Signer could activate the safety switches for the Old Enerdy system.
Each of the five Signers possesses one of the Five Dragons. Currently, all five dragons have been shown, although only four have been named and associated with a Signer:
|Dragon||Mark of the Dragon||Signer||Attribute|
|Stardust Dragon||Tail||Yusei Fudo||Wind|
|Red Dragon Archfiend||Wings||Jack Atlas||Dark|
|Black Rose Dragon||Right Claw||Akiza Izinski||Fire|
|Ancient Fairy Dragon||Left Claw||Luna||Light|
|Fifth Dragon||Head||Fifth Signer||Earth|
"Power Tool Dragon", which belongs to Leo, looks like a mechanized version of the fifth Dragon. Leo believes he is the fifth Signer, after asking Luna if Power Tool Dragon took part in the ancient battle between the Five Dragons and the Earthbound Gods, that she saw in her dream. Luna replies that maybe it did, just to make him happy, although she didn't think it was the same dragon, since such a robotic Dragon could not have taken part in the ancient battle, since it's too high tech.
"Stardust Dragon" and "Red Dragon Archfiend" have their own "/Assault Modes": "Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode" and "Stardust Dragon/Assault Mode". Both of them were Summoned by Yusei and Jack in a special episode.
