Chromatic dragons are types of dragons that appear in colours. There are five kinds of chromatic dragons, with several different dragons in each kind. From weakest to strongest, based on the standard adult form, the colours are green, blue, red, and black. The white variation of chromatic dragons is hunted down to near extinction, with Therragorn being the last living white dragon. However, there are still Celestial dragons, which are white dragons that have been modified by the Dragonkin.

For more information on all types of dragons, see Dragon (race).
