All Dragons in Tears of the Kingdom

Where Breath of the Wild featured three different dragons, there’s four different dragons players can encounter in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Each can be ridden, as has become a typical mechanic in Zelda titles.

The four dragons in Tears of the Kingdom are:

  • Farosh
  • Dinraal
  • Naydra
  • The Light Dragon

Unfortunately, they don’t have much in common and can’t be found in one single location. To find the respective beasts, players will have to travel to their typical territories and hope they bump into one. We’ll run through those below.

These locations are not guaranteed, with the dragons having some degree of free roam in Tears of the Kingdom. They’re most typically found in the below locations though, so head to each to try and find the mighty beasts.
