The Dark Dragon is a major antagonist of the Disney Channel animated series American Dragon Jake Long. He is a power-hungry dragon who attempts to wipe out humanity and any other mythical creature who gets in his way.
He appeared twice in the first season attempting to offer a deal to Jake, whom he seems to have an interest in him, a chance to join him in conquering the universe, yet Jake refuses and defeats him with help from Fred Nerk. In 1975, The Dark Dragon battled Jake's grandfather Lao Shi, the Chinese Dragon, but was defeated by him. This made Lao Shi the first dragon to ever defeat The Dark Dragon.
The Dark Dragon reappears in the second season when he kidnaps Lao Shi, to blackmail him into joining him and his minions. However, Jake, with help from friends and family, defeat him and he is seemingly killed when he gets crushed by rocks. However, he survived the crash, and he grabs Jake with his tail, hoping to take Jake with him through the portal. In the process, Rose cuts the tip of the Dark Dragon's tail, which gives Jake and Rose the chance to escape. The Dark Dragon, however, was not so lucky.
He is shown to be in league with Councillor Chang, a member of the Dragon Council and the one responsible for his battle with Lao Shi in 1975.
- Dark Dragon was declared the most evil being in the Magical World while The Huntsman was declared number #4.
