Spark-dragons or Light-drakes were a breed of dragons of whom all that is known is from the nomenclature by the Eldar. No story tells of their appearance in the history of Arda, but one can assume that somehow they radiated light (and therefore perhaps were related to, or were another name for, the great glow-worms).
Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
In these games, "Light-drakes" were seen as a kind of dragon breeds.
- In Middle-earth Role Playing, light-drakes are rare, wingless dragons. They prefer to fight with their tails, which hold an electrically charged fluid that delivers "a 'sting' analogous to the impact of a lightning bolt".
- In Middle-earth Collectible Card, they are able to inflict two strikes.
- It is unknown whether the name "spark" refers to any electron or light-relating abilities utilized by these dragons.
