"Cinders and ashes! It's a dragon!"
— Thomas, Thomas, Percy and the Dragon, third season
The Chinese Dragon

Thomas was once sent to collect this paper dragon from Brendam. He was surprised at its appearance, until his driver explained it was made of paper and could do no harm. Unfortunately, Percy, who was stuck on a siding at the time, didn't realise this and was scared by it as Thomas went past him. Percy later saw the dragon at Elsbridge, but was relieved that it was only a fake.

The Chinese Dragon can also be lit up inside to become illuminated. It is now popular with funfair specials. Since the tenth season, the Chinese Dragon can move its head and dance about.


The Chinese Dragon is yellow with red and green detail. It's original colour in the Magazines was green with red eyes.
