    I would suggest this to be a mini boss and can be found naturally in the minecraft world but very rare

    I like this idea but it could be better. I think block breaking is too OP and it’s health should be a bit lower. I think the structure should be more simplified but you should have to tame with rare ores, gold diamond etc. I also disagree with only 3 spawning I think they should just naturally generate. I’d also prefer if the dragon could be hatched and raised from a hatchling to an adult to give you the experience of raising it :)

    This is a great idea! One change I would like is that maybe it spawns in the Nether, like how the Ender Dragon is in The End. Maybe, it could be called the Nether Dragon or something. Taming seems a little much though. I think it should be more similar to the Ender Dragon and not be able to be tamed and you have to kill it.

    I like this idea. I also think that only one should spawn in the world. Its not OP then because its so hard to get and find. I also think that implementing a feeding for respect should also be a thing, where if you don t feed it, it loses respect. The rarity of dragon armor should be 0.001% of a chance of finding it in the end.

    I should be in Minecraft but in a different way,like in a new biome since there updating the mountains,why not add a volcanic mountain biome that will have basalt blocks on the mountain, and red dragons will spawn.

    I had an idea in which there could be a specific structure related to lava or magma that the player has to built (like for conduits) in which they could place the Ender Dragon's egg and eventually the Red Dragon would hatch. Another idea or option related to the structure is that the Red Dragon already exists as one of the rarest mobs in-game and it drops the egg (similar to the Ender Dragon) and so in order to maintain the egg, you have to put it in this structure for it to eventually hatch and be yours to ride around on.

    I think the red dragon should be a nuetral mob which can be rarely found in mesa biome caves and sometimes flying around the mesa plateaus would be a really good move.It can shoot fireballs like the ghast and propel you in the air if you try to hurt it and it will be tamable mob so you could ride it around this can be good in 1.17 . Also after a few in game days it will lay its first egg and a baby dragon will come out of it in a few in game days . This dragon can be tamed by feeding it crimson berries which is a new item too. this food item is found in mesa biomes near lava and can only be grown near lava like sugarcane near water . You can eat it to get some fire resistance . You can feed it to baby red dragon to grow him up and breed the two to get even more eggs. Now its up to mojang to add this to the game.

    I think it should be a boss if you deal any damage to it

    You could pair this with the abandoned castle post.

    They should spawn very rarely in the wild, in different warm colors, but in the snowy biome, they should spawn in cold colors - light blue and red being the best.

    I think this idea has so much potential especially with the new caves and cliffs update being announced, Minecraft has 3 dimensions, the End, the over world, and the nether, the End has the ender dragon, the nether has the wither, I think the over world should have the red dragon, an idea for that to fit nicely into Minecraft as of a cave update would be the idea of a dragon protecting its treasure in a cave, I think it would be a perfect over world boss plus this idea’s longevity in the community, I think it would be a cool player experience and become a fan favorite, as well as being marketable, it seems as good a time as any to add something like that, it terms of how it would be gameplay wise in my opinion, I’d like just a beefy boss and if you can make it breath fire, that would be cool, you can even have it sleeping and with the new sound mechanics wake it up, and Since this is also the cliffs update it could Spawn on the side of a mountain and come out and be able to fly, obviously I’m not a developer and I wouldn’t be able to make it as cool as any developer could but as a community member i can can say for myself even if the red dragon was just a ender dragon reskin in the over world that you can wake up and fight for loot, I’d be cool with that

    That sounds soo good! You should also add the dragon amulet idea. It will capture the soul of the dragon and if you realease the soul, it will be summoned at your command, no matter the respect rate. You can craft it with a nether star and glass all around it. Like a beacon. But instead of the obsidian it will be chains at the bottom for the chain of the amulet that would be really amazing.

    I feel like the health is far to low. maybe 150 health at normal. I just want it to be able to fight a wither. I also feel that mobs have a understanding not to fight the dragon/except for boss mobs. I think it would also be cool for there to be a small chance for a different dragon to spawn like a green one. Also if there is three there should be a way to tame all three/maybe fighting it?

    i like the idea that the red dragon could be tamed, but i kinda thought that if the ender dragon is the boss of the end and the wither is the boss of the nether then the red dragon could be the boss of the overworld. so in that case i'd rather you can't tame a red dragon until you kill one, it drops a red dragon egg, and when that hatches in soul fire, THEN you can tame the red dragon. also, the red dragon should be hostile, until you kill it, then when it lays a egg and the egg hatches, then the dragon will be neutral. one more thing though, is that the dragon will be BOSS not miniboss

    This is a really cool idea, but it may be a bit powerful? Maybe there should only be one dragon, and maybe a bit smaller? I personally would say about half the size of the ender dragon and maybe less hp and damage, and breaking blocks is a bit overpowered. As a mod, this would be awesome but if this is the vanilla game it should probably be nerfed quite a bit. This is a cool idea, though!

    I don't think it should consume the egg, the one time only trophy of The End. But it should still be tamed using it somehow. Also, how would you feed/breed/heal it?

    I got a idea, There should be a new biome called "Abandoned Land". The abandoned land biome is the biome that is really messy, for example, all the trees on abandoned land biome have no leaves, there will be lots of fire on the ground, and no mobs will be spawn on abandoned land biome. Each abandoned land biome will spawn a castle and red dragon will live inside of it. This solve the problem of "how many red dragon will be spawn", it will gives player a hope that if you look hard enough you will find it at some point. the Abandoned land biome are the rarest biome in Minecraft. 

    Red dragon taming, I think that we should have to kill the red dragon, so we can get it's egg. We have to raise the red dragon baby to earn it trust, when it become full grown, then we can ride it.

    Last but not least, Drop of Red Dragon, The drop will be "Red Dragon egg", " Red Dragon's teeth, and "Red Dragon's Skull". The teeth can be used for upgrade armor and tools (It's like netherite armor, but you can only upgrade it of using diamond armor/tools). For example you need one teeth to upgrade diamond armor/tools to "Dragonite Armor"(can be changed).The Dragonite armor will have special abilities, we will discover it someday lol. The Red Dragon skull is a trophy like end dragon egg, can be wear in helmet.(like End dragon head)

    I think this is a clever idea! I really like the balance of it, I think it should be added cuz it gives a different element to the game. I agree with it being rare cuz having like 20 red dragons in just a few days is too OP, you can basically conquer an entire server so yeah pretty good idea.

    I like the Idea a lot but if you could make the dragon and the dragon equipment less rare and then just add something to counter the Red Dragon in pvp servers like Ballista's or airships ( I think airships is a little too complicated but it would be cool if they added it). The Ballista will be a large stationary crossbow that needs a foundation or space of at least 4 blocks, I was thinking it could be automatic or just singular shots. Ballista arrows are larger than regular arrows and can penetrate dragon armor. It could deal 12 damage (6 hearts) the damage decreases the stronger the armor.

    Weapons like swords, axes, bows, and crossbows deal less damage to the Red Dragon maybe half the damage. If they do add airships in the future (Why airships? Well its a little less complicated than making a plane so yeah) It should be found in villages, they could add a airship workshop in some villages, they could also add airships in pillager raids so it could be more challenging. There should be different sizes and you could add blocks to the sides of the airships but that would make it slower. The smallest size should like a normal balloon like in the Wizard of Oz, the biggest size should be like mini Zeppelin they could be used in pvp in bombing bases but their weakspots are their balloons of course.

    I have an idea: maybe it could spawn inside a volcano! In 2012, Marc Watson jokingly suggested Volcanoes, The red dragon, Coral Blocks and new fish (alongside fish blocks, but those will never be added.). The latter two were added in 1.13, so why shouldn’t the former two. As for reaching it, others have made two great suggestions: Pumice, which would act as a sort of lava sponge, and Nether Reactors, which could act like a Lava version of the conduit.

    The red dragon is something a lot of players have been expecting to get in the game, for a long time. I think they originally planned for the Ender Dragon egg to hatch, and that should happen in the future End Update. They can add dragon mobs in that dimension that you can tame/breed.

    I'm against the idea of mobs being limited in worlds, like Elder Guardians and Piglin Brutes. Mob extinction is bad game design. They should be able to respawn in worlds, somehow.

    I like having huge castle dungeons, it's a highly voted idea. Dragons could spawn naturally around these structures!

    Although, I think we should just make simple dragon breeding, taming, and riding mechanics. Similar to horses, where you can equip saddles and armor, and with varying skins and stats. We can have an attack button while riding it. Their eggs can hatch similar to turtle eggs.
