Dragons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are mighty creatures that fly high in the sky. To help you get exciting Dragon items and the Master Sword, here’s a guide to finding and riding Dinraal, Naydra, Farosh, and the Light Dragons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom expands on its predecessor in every possible way. TOTK delivers many features from BOTW, all while introducing new concepts and gameplay mechanics. Alongside the notorious weapon durability feature, Dragons have returned in TOTK.

Dragons can provide valuable resources like rare items and materials so tracking them down in Tears of the Kingdom is definitely worth your while.

Here’s how to find Dragons in TOTK, complete with the locations you’ll need to visit.

All Dragon materials in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and how to get them

You can get the following items by attacking Dragons in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom:

  • Dragon Scales – Shoot a Dragon’s body from a range or glide down its body.
  • Dragon Shards – Land on a Dragon’s back and walk along it to find shards near the end.
  • Dragon Claws – Shoot a Dragon’s claws from a range or glide down and attack its claws with melee attacks.
  • Dragon Horns – Target the Dragon’s Horns from a long range or strike the horns while riding the beast.
  • Master Sword – Reach the head of the Light Dragon and pull the sword out with two full stamina wheels.

Dinraal Dragon location in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Dinraal is known as the fire Dragon in TOTK.

Tears of the Kingdom players can find Dinraal near the Eldin Mountains. The fire Dragon will often be found circling the volcano and surrounding mountainous regions. You’ll find the Eldin Mountains in the northeastern section of the TOTK map.

Before you attempt to land on Dinraal, we suggest equipping fire-resistant equipment, as Dinraal will attack with fire.

Reaching a vantage point above the mountains is the key to scoping out Dinraal in the game, and we suggest heading to the Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower, or the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower.

Naydra Dragon location in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Naydra Dragon TOTK

In Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll find the Naydra Dragon near East Necluda and Mount Lanayru. To spot the frost Dragon, you’ll want to make your way to the southeast portion of the TOTK map.

Much like Dinraal, Naydra will hit you with elemental attacks. This time you’ll need to prepare for the cold. We recommend equipping cold-resistant armor or chowing down on some meals that will allow you to brace against the cold.

You’ll want to head to either the Rabella Wetlands Skyview Tower or Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower to get the best sight at Naydra.

Farosh Dragon location in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Head to the Gerudo Desert to spot Farosh.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom fans can spot Farosh near the Gerudo Desert. Farosh can be found circulating the surrounding areas, including Lake Hylia. Head to the southwest corner of the map and you’ll spot Farosh in no time.

To counter the chance of getting struck by lightning around Farosh, the lightning Dragon, you’ll want to remove any conductive equipment, as well as consume any shock-resistant meals in your inventory. Utilizing the Rubber Armor set is another great strategy in this case.

You’ll get the best view of Farosh by heading to the Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower, or the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower.

Light Dragon location in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The Light Dragon is a new addition in TOTK.

The Light Dragon in TOTK is a peculiar case, and locating it doesn’t involve the same strategy as the other three Dragons. To locate this new Dragon in TOTK, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled as it can be seen wandering the entire map.

Therefore, there’s no set location that you can take advantage of. However, we do know that it can be spotted roaming at a higher level in the sky than the other Dragons. You’ll need to get to a high enough vantage point to land on the Dragon successfully, and we suggest fast traveling to a corresponding sky tower.

You may want to delay your hunting of the Light Dragon since you’ll need two full bars of stamina to successfully claim the special reward that resides with the Dragon, if you’ve completed the previous steps in the quest.
