Dragon (ドラゴン Doragon?) is the Quirk used by Ryukyu.


Dragon allows Ryuko to transform into a dragon, a powerful mythological creature.[1] This form grants her abilities commonly associated with dragons, including flight, powerful jaws and claws.[2] The activation of this Quirk seems to be connected to the claw-like accessory on Ryuko's head.[1][3]

Ryuku's physical strength in this form allowed her to effortlessly block a punch from Rikiya Katsukame, a Yakuza member with superhuman strength, as well as restrain him,[1] and later to knock him back and hurt him despite having been weakened by his Quirk, and despite the latter having just shrugged off one of Nejire Hado's shockwaves.[2] Her durability also increases considerably, allowing her to be hit by her intern's most powerful attack without taking damage.[4]

It is worth noting that despite her form changing, Ryuku remains capable of grappling with the opponent, grabbing their hands with her claws, restraining them with submissions,[1] and using her fangs as extra appendages in a hold.[2]
