7 Largest Dragons in the Universe
16 July 2021
In literature, movies and plays for children you’ll find all kinds of different dragons. But which dragons are the largest in the universe? Here are seven of the most gigantic dragons known to man. Some are so big that it’s hard to even imagine just how huge they are.
1. Stellar Dragons
Stellar dragons are massive draconic creatures that live in the farthest corners of the Dungeons & Dragons Spelljammer ‘Star Trek’ setting. As space creatures they are some of the largest dragons in existence that simply float around and try to unravel the secrets of the universe. An adult stellar dragon is 3,000,000 feet long.
2. Ancalagon the Black
Ancalagon the Black is from Middle Earth and is said to be as tall as a mountain. When he fell from the sky it’s thought he crushed three volcanoes, which are said to be around five miles across each. That means Ancalagon is probably around 15 miles long – which is pretty impressive to say the least.
The Bukunawa is the Dragon of the Eclipse. He is a massive Philippine serpent that lives in the underworld according to legend. At night he comes out of the dark to eat the moon whole, as a snack. That’s quite an appetite!
4. Super Sheng Long
Super Sheng Long from Dragon Ball Super is one of the largest dragons in fiction, dwarfing Chou Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, who is said to be an incredible 52.8 billion light years in length. He’s so big he’s also capable of eating entire galaxies. Forget metres or even miles, this dragon is completely off the scale.
5. Samal Naga
Samal Naga is a Philippine dragon so huge that it actually got stuck in space. Imagine being so sizable that you can’t even fit in outer space! According to the story around Samal Naga, this dragon is actually trapped in the Milky Way.
Also known as the Midgard Serpent, Jörmungandr is the largest dragon in Norse mythology. He is big enough to encircle the entire world and grasp his own tail – which means he is at least 24,901 miles long. The story goes that when he releases his tail, Ragnarok – a great battle – will begin.
7. Planet Eater Ghidorah
Mythical beasts such as Planet Eater Ghodorah from Godzilla: Monster Planet, are so big that they can actually eat entire planets. He is the largest version of King Ghidorah.
