    Hi! I really love that idea, but the hitting the dragon or standing on top of it is a little too easy... I think that the only way to wake it should be the enderdragon egg! Plus, right now (1.14) There is no use for the dragon egg!

    I think the red dragon should kinda resemble the ender dragon, but have a little more detail

    I think the red dragon should kinda resemble the ender dragon, but have a little more detail with its scails.

    Even if taming dragons in not an option (which it probably isn't given what's said here: https://www.reddit.com/r/minecraftsuggestions/wiki/fps), we should still be able to get one to trust us.  True, we don't want to end up with something overpowered, but perhaps a dragon that trusts you will be willing to provide you an ingredient for boosting the strength of your armor and weapons, as well as a few items that you'd find useful in brewing (the latter would be a renewable resource).

    I like this idea except for the block breaking, and I think that there should be a lot more than 3 in a world, but still be super rare.

    The Red Dragon Should spawn in a volcano and then when awoken will attack you and it should be tameable

    I like the idea, but since the nether update was just announced I think the Red Dragon should be the official boss of the nether, and I know the wither is a thing, but most people fight it in the overworld. As well as the red dragon not being tamable. The drops would just be the same as the Ender Dragon, but instead of the 12,000 exp the Ender Eragon drops, maybe just 500, and finally the Red Dragon would have it's own Red Dragon egg once killed

    I like the idea of block breaking and parkour, though it should not be tamable at first. The dragon should be guarding a huge treasury full of diamonds, gold, emeralds, enchantments and traps. Then eventually you can tame its offspring by stealing it. I think this would be amazing, dragons could also give you the very bad omen effect if you escaped, which means it will attack the village. Just idea, though I think it needs to guard treasury and naturally kill livestock.

    Should be brother to Ender Dragon and give you some end related drop along with own personal drop.

    I think they should spawn more than 3 times, but they would have to be INCREDIBLY rare and and spawn reaaaally far from the word spawn point. Also they should make Endsr Dragon eggs renewable

    I don't exactly believe this is the best way to implement the Red Dragon. I think it should be exactly how Notch intended, the Dragon Egg placed on a block with torches around it.

    YES. For as long as I have been playing Minecraft, I was hoping one day the red dragon gets added, this would be an awesome addition and would make a great endgame reward for all the hard work you did to get there. You have my vote!

    Just make it a little Less Op Because Sever Owners might be mad if someone's Dragon just Ran into a House or Something! But great idea make it a little Less Over Powered

    Seems to me that if one wants to get the attention of a Fire Drake. One must first build a great work of both Beacon and Gold. The kind of thing that can shine for miles and stir the Greedy Heart of a Dragon.

    Personally speaking, i'd be inclined towards something like a Red Dragon being a totally wild Mob and a boss. Being required to build a Beacon and then build up Gold blocks would be an interesting build solution to summoning. Not to mention giving another use for Gold Blocks. It also wouldn't be beholden to a number limit on the server. Got to consider Multiplayer as well as Single player. Only three on the server map would mean they'd be gone within a few weeks of the server launch.

    I'd be inclined to suggest that it drop Dragon Scale and claw, which in turn could be used for the crafting of Armor and tools. As far as Armor goes, A fire Immunity effect, but no lava immunity.

    Now if it were something to be tamed. My suggestion is that it be tamed via a trading system essentially. Give the Dragon riches for Loyalty. Block form Gold, Diamonds, Redstone, and Lapis Lazuli.

    Maybe the dragon could require a saddle to tame, and from there it's just a matter of holding on for dear life. If you're really lucky you could sneak up on it while its sleeping and jump on its back. Perhaps there could also be a mechanic to lure it out with emerald, diamond, and gold blocks. I could see all new uses for elytra, the featherfalling enchantment, as well as gold, emerald, and diamond blocks to build traps for the dragon.

    They should make a red and black egg spawn in after you kill the red dragon/nether dragon and maybe make the red dragon/nether dragon as boss mob like the ender dragon and wither

    I believe the game in general needs more bosses. Mighty enemies that don't attack regular players but can be sought out by adventurers when they are ready just like the ender dragon.

    The Red Dragon could be a great example and breathe fire that lights objects on fire. Perhaps he's found in the nether. Or in new mini boss dimension like the old End.

    To improve upon the idea, what if the dragon had a lifespan? Granted, a large one, but a lifespan never the less. In the dragons last few days, it would curl up on the floor, and barely move. In its last few moments, the dragon would close its eyes, and purr (or some affection sound). Then it would turn to ash and be swept in the wind. It would be a heart-breaking moment, and would get players to try and preserve its life. To do this, you could mix dragon breath, a nether-star, and chorus fruit together to make star-fruit. which will stop the dragons ageing. Either that, or have the star-fruit be able to tame it. And maybe the dragon egg just agro's it instantly. But maybe this should be a nether boss. And when it's killed, it would drop a red-dragon egg. Having the end dragon egg and the red dragon egg in close proximity, (around maybe 5 blocks), would cause the end dragon egg to teleport and the red dragon egg to burn the area around it. I also want some use for both dragon eggs, but can't really work one out.

    Ok, but not only the red dragon. I think we could have the possibility to choose if give the egg to the red dragon, or istead haching it. So, we can have two options of dragons!

    I think it'd be cool if it spawned as a boss or a mini-boss in the nether.

    I like it but you can get a body part of it like a tail and swing it and it will break the ground and it will fling mobs in the sky and you can shear the dragon or dragons🤯yes there will be more then one red dragon but as i was saying you can shear them and it will give you scales and you can use it bye making armor and weapons and the armor will already have fire resistance but you cant put frost walker on the boots and you can custimize your elytra useing scales and it will make you fly faster

    A second dragon would take away from the magic of the ender dragon. The ender dragon is unique, and it should that that way. I’m sorry but this idea is bad

    If the Red Dragon is added as a type of new boss

    it should roam the Overworld flying very high in the sky, the only way to get it's attention is to hit it with a sword. After you do this, it would initiate the boss fight, giving the dragon a health bar and it would start attacking you with Fire Breath and other sorts of attacks.

    This dragon would avoid damaging the surrounding land until you get it to half health, where it starts to get more ferocious. In it's second stage it will do more damage to the player and have new attacks.

    If you manage to beat the dragon then it will dragon a Red Dragon Egg symbolizing that you beat it, and some XP along with 1-3 Red Dragon Scales.

    These scales could be used to craft a Dragon Shield which will have a more important look compared to the current shield (like link's Hylian Shield) It will have more durability than the current shield but cannot be enchanted. It could however allow the player to use a "Shield Bash" type of attack that would deal damage to mobs. 

    This mob should only start spawning after we defeat the Ender Dragon or Wither. It should also have a very rare chance of spawning (0.01%-0.005%)

    Finally, a purpose for the Dragon Egg. Upvoted.
