- The Opal Dragon cannot breed with any other dragon, including breeding with another Opal Dragon.
- On June 15, 2016, the Opal Dragon's description was slightly changed. The last line of the previous description was: "Opal dragons, like all gemstone dragons, cannot breed."
- On June 22, 2016, an extra line was added to the end of the Opal Dragon's description stating: "This dragon cannot breed at this time."
- The Opal Dragon's description states "displaying every color in the visible spectrum". This is lkely a reference to an ancient Aboriginal legend, where the creator came down to earth on a rainbow to bring the message of peace to all humans. At the spot where his foot touched the ground, the stones began to sparkle in all of the colors of the rainbow.
- The Opal Dragon is classified as a black opal. Although not truly black, they are very dark which gives them the ability to enhance the brilliance of diffracted colors.
