    Cool idea! But you have to balance it out so not just anyone can have a dragon. Maybe you could add something like you have to defeat the momma dragon before getting the egg. If you kill the mom and get the egg would you get dragon scales which then can be crafted to dragon scale armor. Maybe dragon meat. Fire dragons could spawn in the nether. Dragon parents could be like bosses. I also think that you can only tame baby dragons. Also there should be different ways to make them hatch faster like water and ice dragons could be placed in water and fire dragon eggs could be placed surrounded by fire to speed up the process! I would LOVE to see dragons in the next update, but they do need a bit more to them.

    Personally I think this is a great idea, however having a pet dragon could disrupt the game's difficulty and progression if done incorrectly, so here are some of my ideas in order to combat this:

    -A tamed dragon should go through multiple 'stages' of growth, each requiring a special item at the end of each stage in order for the dragon to move on to the next (the items will be described later in the post). Each stage of growth will introduce more health and more abilities. This will also allow the owner to keep the tamed dragon in a desirable stage if they choose to do so.

    -The items that are needed for the dragon to progress into the next growth stage are called "Essence", and are fed to the dragon when it is at the end of it's current growth-stage. There are three types of "Essence", each associated with a different growth stage and are dropped by defeating a boss (the first tier is dropped by an elder guardian, the second is dropped by a wither, and the third is dropped by the ender dragon). The essence should then be brewed into Thick potion (giving it an actual use) and the result would be a type of Essence Extract, and that could be then given to the dragon. Because of this, the dragon's strength and overall power is determined by how far the player is in the game, and this let a more early game player possibly have access to a dragon, but they won't be able to unlock the dragon's full potential until they 'finish' the game.

    I think this is a good idea except for the fact that you have to *find* the eggs. I suggest that the different types of dragon eggs should be crafted in a new workstation (that would possibly mean a new type of villager) with rare materials (like netherite ingots for the nether dragon) or the Ender Dragon's egg hatched by itself for a weaker dragon pet.

    I don’t think the elemental powers would fit Minecraft that well but I’m all for biome dragons. I just hope if they put dragons in the game they won’t be to big cause it would be hard to build an enclosure,cage or anything like that

    Dragons could shoot a fire charge too and have infinite shots it just has a cool down after each volley I like the idea of “stages of growth” just make it easier to grow your dragon 🐉

    THIS IS A GREAT IDEA I LOVE IT also if you do please make it so that they shoot fire balls at the enemy like wolves how they attack’s but dragons shoot fire balls when you hit the enemy

    I think this would be really cool, the different elemental powers and stuff might be a bit much. I think just having a pet Ender Dragon (from the dragon egg) would be good enough. Infinite flight would be a bit overpowered, so maybe there'd be a system where giving it various foods gives you different amounts of flight time (Carrot 5 seconds, Steak 30 seconds, Enchanted Golden Apple 8 minutes, etc.)

    It should be like the dragons mod, where you hatch the ender dragon egg when you defeat the ended dragon and depending on where you hatch it the dragon can be different elements

    As long as their textures remain a consistent resolution with the rest of the game, I'm down. I wouldn't like them having stretched/enlarged textures that make them appear out of place. I don't agree with the elemental part, but they should definitely have varying textures in my opinion.

    It'll be a nice alternative to the elytra for flying by riding the dragon, and is a popular fantasy staple that everyone can enjoy, from Skyrim to HTTYD. I'd say don't make the size too big to allow flying in caves and the nether. Wild dragons can soar the sky, rarely, to populate the currently empty minecraft skies. Perhaps nests on mountain peaks? I recommend not making wild dragons destructive for builds. Or at least, have a method for builds to ward away dragons.

    (Part 1) Actually ryan riccio, I think instead of feeding it all the time to keep it tamed, maybe a very large hunger bar may be a good idea. The dragon is ravenous and you have to feed it large amounts of food (meat only) to keep it up to strength. If the hunger bar reaches 0 after a couple of days the dragon will no longer be tamed. If hunger is below half, the dragon will be disobedient and constantly wander off to kill and eat an animal to try and keep it’s hunger bar up. Of course, if you just let it eat and don’t feed it yourself after say, 5 days, the dragon will no longer feel attached to you and will no longer be tamed. Attack damage, healing rate, damage resistance and speed may depend greatly upon the hunger bar. So to keep it at full strength you have to feed it almost constantly. If the dragon is big enough, then you may ride it so long as it is tamed, you can ride medium-ish dragons but they cannot fly as you wheigh them down too much, only larger dragons can carry you.

    Great idea but I will low to have dragons spawn from dragon eggs . That will be obtained By killing dragon boos. Probably ender dragon than to have like dragon DNA around the real world that will mix with ender eg and give him an opportunity to hatch.

    Ender dragon should drop some saddle like thing to ride dragons

    have the dragon drip a shub of horn from the dragon every 15 minutes if you have tamed it. then you can make dragons into armor and weapons. the armor and weapon must have the same color as the shub. and you can ride it and you can let them mate with each other and there are other species.

    I'd love to see this happen in Minecraft!  Maybe attaching a saddle would give the ability to ride them and glide through the sky!

    They need to be extremely rare. Some would have to have their own biomes. Taming would have to be hard too. Maybe only baby dragons, so you'd have to steal the egg, or get the mother to give you an egg. For attacking, you should have an advanced dragon saddle, which is harder to find, but will allow you to make them use their element. They should have them similar to fire balls, though if you charge you could have a five second beam attack. The only ones I can think of working well are fire, ice, wind and ender.

    Seeing as how the dragon egg has no purpose at all, this just seems like an obvious use for it. Although it would make sense to get more of them in case the first dragon dies.

    I would love to also see a frost dragon, which will be found in snow biomes or cold climate biomes. Also I would love to see this mod due to Minecraft not having any flyable pets that can be tamed
