|The dragon is one of the default species available in villager creation. Its design is based on a combination of features of depictions of Western and Eastern dragons. Unlike the other species, which usually reflect the color patterns of existing animals, a majority of the dragon's color options and costumes feature vibrant, highly saturated color combinations.|
- The dragon was one of the four original species planned for the release of Furvilla, along with the cat, the wolf, and the fox. The rabbit and horse were not added until later in development.
- The original sketch of the dragon's base design featured a much more aggressive expression. It had a clenched fist, slitted pupils, and a manic, toothy grin. The sketch was later changed for the purpose of "leaving room for the player to develop their villager's character". The new sketch, which is the basis for the dragons's default model today, gave the dragon round pupils, a benign expression, and positioned the hands in front of the dragon's chest.
