Opposite dragons are dragons which have opposite elements. These dragons cannot be bred with a basic dragon of each element, thereby requiring the use of hybrid dragons for breeding.

Breeding Opposite Dragons

Opposite dragons can be bred by using the dragon of the primary element and breeding it with any hybrid dragon that has the opposite element present. However, the hybrid dragon cannot be an opposite dragon. For example, to breed the Sandstorm Dragon, the player must use an Air Dragon and breed it with any earth hybrid except a Sandstorm Dragon or Dodo Dragon.

The rule for breeding dragons with opposite elements is as follows: Opposite Dragon = Basic Dragon + Hybrid Dragon With The Opposite Element.

This is an example of the rule using specific dragons:

Blue Fire Dragon = (fire + cold hybrid) ---> Fire Dragon + Storm Dragon

Opposite dragons have a significantly lower percent chance of breeding than the ordinary hybrid dragons, and is not guaranteed each time the player tried to obtain one. It will probably take multiple attempts before breeding one so it is suggested to not give up and to keep trying until one is bred.

If trying to breed for an opposite dragon in the Epic Breeding Island or the Epic Breeding Sanctuary, the chances of receiving such a dragon are raised.

There is another method to breed opposite dragon, it has a much higher success rate, but it can only be used to duplicate an already existing opposite dragon, either the players own or a friend's by using the Coop Breeding Cave.

This method works by using the rule that when a the elements of the parents can not produce any ordinary hybrid dragons, the result will be a duplicate of one of the parents, each one with 50% chance.

In order for the combination to not produce any ordinary hybrids the parents must only have 2 elements which are opposites. Normally this doesn't seem possible, since primary dragons of opposite elements can not breed together, but by using an already existing opposite dragon it is possible, by breeding the opposite dragon with a primary dragon that is one of the elements the opposite dragon, or with an other opposite dragon with the same elements.

This is an example of using this method to get a Blue Fire Dragon:

Blue Fire Dragon + Fire Dragon = Blue Fire Dragon or Fire Dragon

Each parent has equal chance of being the one that gets duplicated, which means 50% chance that the child will be a Blue Fire Dragon, and 50% chance of Fire Dragon, but since the Fire Dragon only has 5 minutes breeding time, another attempt can be made just a short while later, and most opposite dragon have someone they can breed with for very short waiting time in case of failure.

Some opposite dragons may not follow the standard rules.

Opposite Dragon Overview

There are ten non-limited opposite dragons in the game currently: the Blue Fire Dragon, Frostfire Dragon, Sandstorm Dragon, Dodo Dragon, Plasma Dragon, Current Dragon, Malachite Dragon, Ironwood Dragon, Shadow Dragon, and the Mirage Dragon.

There are also three limited dragons with opposite elements which are not considered opposite dragons: the Light Rift Dragon, the Dark Rift Dragon, and the Thorn Dragon.

Cyclops Dragon, while requiring 3 elements to breed normally, Lightning, Water and Metal, only adds 2 of those, Lightning and Water to the breeding pool, since those are opposites, Cyclops Dragons can easily be duplicated the same way as opposite dragons.
