    This is an older thread, but I thought I'd comment with some new insight. I think a red dragon boss would suit the nether with it's current update. Found at some crazy location, maybe a structure generated behind a wall of lava like a giant cave feeding into a nether fortress. It would be similar to the enderdragon but not the same. I think the gold theme in the nether fits really well with the idea of a boss dragon, like it hoards piles of gold and riches and gets a good deal of power from it. Alternatively, it could be surrounded by nether spires. The dragon doesn't fly that much, it's really big but old and it's wings are a little ragged. It stomps around and attempts to kill you in this cave, but once you deal enough damage it takes flight and leaves the cave, circling above it and drawing power from the now powered nether spires.
    It's lair is part of a huge nether fortress, maybe this is the reason piglins dislike wither skeletons so much. The dragon used to raid piglin tribes and pilage them for gold, aided by the skeletons and zombified piglins from the fortress.
    I like the idea of it sleeping in pools of lava, only provoked when you attack, waking it from it's long slumber. Maybe it dives into the lava to heal or get away once it's health is low, jumping back out to attack before diving back in. Even with the update, though I know it is in development still, the nether to me lacks enough natural bosses. I feel the opportunity to pillage the dragon's nest and aquire huge amounts of gold or possibly one or two pieces of damaged netherite armor or weapons from prior fallen challengers.

    Well, in my opinion, they should add dragons for people who are less fortunate and can't afford the dragon pack in the shop. However, to tame a huge dragon? I think they should be like dogs. They fly with you wherever you go and help defeat mobs. They can only grow to be as big as a dog and the babies are the size of an adult cat. They should eat mutton and (hopefully not) breathe fire, (I don't suggest it considering it might be a bit overpowered.) it should be hard to tame, (since they are dragons, of course.) And you can be able to have the babies on your shoulder, like a parrot. The babies (probably) can't help with combat.   (I also prefer 1 type of dragon instead of 4, since dragons are rare and all.) This is a suggestion, but you can find them in the nether or in caves and can tame them with raw mutton, (or any raw meat).

    I think it would be cool to have overworld dragons that raided villages. Bad omen could be edited to either bring a raid to a village or bring a dragon. I was inspired by this... https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360013742052-Overworld-dragons

    I love the idea of more dragons being in the game.
    If there are new dragons added, they should have some incentive to them, Dragon Scales, Boss Fights, and cool new Eggs.

    The Red Dragon - boss - found very rarely in the overworld at a “Dragon Alter”. This Alter would be 4 very large pillars of stone and stone variants that would look similar to the obsidian obelisks in the End. The red dragon would be asleep in the middle of the alter and he will only awake if you come into the proximity of the alter or hit him on the head. This will start the boss fight.
    The Ice Dragon, counterpart to The Red Dragon this one will be a ice white/blue variant that is only found in snow/tundra type biomes or at the bottom of frozen oceans.
    If you beat either of these dragons, they will dragon Red Dragon Scale or Ice Dragon Scale and Red Dragon Egg or Ice Dragon Egg respectively. They should also drop a decent amount of XP. These can be used to craft Dragon Shields. The ice dragon shield will freeze the first 3 mobs in front of the player in ice. The Red Dragon Shield will shield set them on fire. These shields will resemble Link’s Hylian Shield but red or blue respectively.
    Both the Ice and Red dragon will look similar to the enderdragon but will have different details.

    The Sky Dragon will be fundamentally different, resembling the dragons from Avatar The Last airbender. It will Be green
    fly higher than clouds
    It’s not a boss fight.
    If hit it will drop 1 scale and fly away into the sky.

    Make it so you get a Dragon Egg, Then put it under a campfire, like with the bees. Then get a prompt for what color.

    This idea is quite long and detailed, but I think that players and Mojang will love it! It will make some of the more tedious things in Minecraft easier as well as add more to the smithing table, 'cause lets be honest, the smithing table is kind of underused right now.

    I have always had dragon ideas like this. Allow me to share them. 

    So, this could open up a new whole dimension. Trust me, minecraft needs one. This dimension could be the "mythical dimension". Build it like the end portal, but with the new amythest blocks, wich you obtain with silk touch. Light it up with flint and steel, and enter.

    And the final idea Is a new item. It's the dragon saddle. The dragons can be killed to drop 1-5 dragon scales. Your choice if it should be 1-2 instead. 

    This is how you craft it. Surround a saddle with dragon scales. So 8 dragon scales and 1 saddle. The scales can be different colours according to the dragons colour. Tame them with raw meat and put the saddle on and get riding!

    I prefer that     red dragon : in nether 
                            blue dragon : in an ice island
                            green dragon : in a deep and huge forest
                             yellow dragon : in a mooshroom island
