Butterflies are insects mentioned briefly in the game, School of Dragons, and then again in the Dragons: Race to the Edge episode, "Mi Amore Wing". They also appear in the game, Dreamworks Dragons: Dawn of New Riders.


Butterflies are winged, six-legged insects of the Order Lepidoptera, Suborder Rhopalocera. They are characterized by intricately colored and designed wings in the adult stage, and caterpillars in the larval stages. Wing shape and coloring can vary widely from bright colors to dull camouflage colors. Butterflies have a long proboscis mouth part for extracting nectar from flowers. When not in use, this proboscis is often coiled up.

The larval stage - caterpillars - usually eat plant material other than flower nectar such as leaves. As such, some species can be a major pest of farmers and their crops.


In the game, School of Dragons, butterflies are part of a legend told in the "Call of the Deathsong" Expansion.

In actuality, butterflies are popular in art and stories, and are sometimes used as collectibles.


Dragons: Race to the Edge, Season 6

In the "Call of the Death Song" Expansion, Heather tells the player of a story called the "Legend of The Dragon Valkyrie", which tells the mythological creation of the Death Song dragon.

The life cycle of a butterfly is illustrated as part of a puzzle in Loki's Mirage.
