What are Opposite Dragons?

Opposite Dragons are dragons, such as the Sandstorm Dragon and the Plasma Dragon, which use opposite elements to be bred. Since these dragons use opposite elements, they cannot be bred with a basic dragon of each element, thereby requiring the use of hybrids for breeding. The way to breed these Opposite Dragons is by taking the basic dragon of the primary element and mating it with any hybrid dragon that has the secondary element present. However, the hybrid dragon cannot be an opposite dragon. For example, to breed a Sandstorm Dragon, one must use an Air Dragon to mate with any earth hybrid except Sandstorm Dragon or Dodo Dragon.

The rule of breeding dragons with opposite elements is that it needs a basic dragon and a hybrid dragon. The basic dragon depends on the dragon's first element and the hybrid dragon is based off the dragon's second element.

Example: Breeding combination for the Blue Fire Dragon (Fire + Cold hybrid)

There are ten Opposite Dragons in the game currently: Blue Fire Dragon, Frostfire Dragon, Sandstorm Dragon, Dodo Dragon, Plasma Dragon, Current Dragon, Malachite Dragon, Ironwood Dragon, Shadow Dragon, and Mirage Dragon. There are also two Limited Opposite Dragons: Light Rift Dragon and Dark Rift Dragon.

Opposite Dragons have a significantly lower percent chance of breeding than the ordinary hybrids; do not get discouraged if an opposite-element hybrid is not gained on the first few tries. 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.

Opposite Dragons CANNOT be affected positively by a boost because, for example, putting a fire boost on an island with the Blue Fire dragon on it, it will negatively affect the cold element, and positively affect the fire element, so it will not be positively affected overall. 

Some opposite dragons may not follow the standard rules.

Contrary to the usual pattern, the Light and the Dark Rift Dragons are limited dragons who cannot be bred unless two of the desired dragon are already in the player's park.

The Rift Dragons were obtained when a player had cast Magic into the Tines of the Scar during the Light Magic and Dark Magic events.

In Bring 'Em Back, combinations to breed this dragon were made. Unlike the other Opposite Dragons, the Rift Dragons can be bred from any combination of the Light and Dark elements.


Previously Hidden Dragons

These Opposite Dragons were not shown in the market for a brief period prior to their release into the market, but were still breedable while not in the market.

Notes

  • On December 19, 2012, all of the Opposite Dragons disappeared from the market, but could still be bred.
    • All of them reappeared in the market on January 14, 2013, when the Bring 'Em Back! event ended.
  • The Reindeer Dragon was an opposite before the Metal Dragon was introduced. After the Metal Dragon's release it was no longer considered an opposite since the Metal element became the opposite to Plant rather than Cold. This also changed how Cold and Plant boosts affected the earning rates.
  • All of the Opposite Dragons are recolorations, with slight differences, of their primary element dragon, with the exception of Rift Dragons.
  • On June 27, 2013, all opposite dragons received a unique design of infobox that includes a "curtain" on either side of the box, with the exception of Rift Dragons.
