Characters / The Savage Dragon

(The) Dragon AKA Emperor Kurr

  • Back from the Dead: He survived certain deaths so many times thanks to his potent healing factor.
  • Beard of Sorrow: Grows one after Debbie's death.
  • Body Horror: After being beaten to a pulp and stuffed into a narrow smokestack, his Healing Factor turns him into a twisted monstrosity. Later, he has to have Mighty Man break every bone in his body so they can be set properly.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: As a result of Horde.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: He's naked in his climactic battle with Overlord, as a result of Overlord vaporizing his clothes along with the team of Red Shirts that came along.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: Dragon has been Impaled with Extreme Prejudice on a church spire, been repeatedly dismembered, had a bowling-ball sized hole blasted through his chest on at least three separate occasions, his skin burned off, etc.
  • Fusion Dance: The circumstances of his death result in his essence getting entangled with William Jonson's body, allowing Dragon to periodically take control, bulking Jonson up in the process.
  • Healing Factor: It's so powerful, he even develops immunity to mind-control.
    • There's a bit of Reality Ensues to go with it. Once, when severely beaten (his jaw broken, fingers mangled, among other injuries), he had to go to Mighty Man (who is a nurse in his/her civilian identity) to have his bones re-broken so they would heal correctly. So while he'll eventually recover from almost any injury, his body won't automatically just straighten everything out.
  • Immune to Bullets
  • Immune to Mind Control: Downplayed. He doesn't resist completely the first time but all subsequent attempts using the same technique are ineffective thanks to his Healing Factor.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: His aim is perfect from the first time he steps onto a shooting range.
    • In fact, it has been stated to be one of his powers. When he was struck by negate and had his abilities stripped, he noted that this power was removed and this was the first time he ever missed.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's a big strong guy but unlike most strongmen, he is extremely fast and is as agile as characters like Spider-Man.
  • Mysterious Past
  • Naked on Arrival: Dragon first shows up naked in a burning field.
  • Not Wearing Tights: The only time Dragon wears spandex is during his stint in SOS. Before that, he wore a police uniform.
  • Omniglot: He lost count of the number of languages he knows, so all he's sure of is that it's around a hundred.
    • Typically, he doesn't even realize he knows the language until he hears it due ot Laser-Guided Amnesia.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Dragon started out as a nickname given to him by Nurse Ann due to his appearance. Since he didn't remember his original name, he adopted "Dragon" as his legal name.
  • Our Hero Is Dead
  • Planet Looters: In his former life as the psychotic emperor of a race of aliens searching for a new home, he wanted to develop a virus to wipe out humanity so his race could displace them.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner e.g. When about to blow up a monster's head using one of Dung's high-pressure diarrhea-spraying cannons: "Eat shit and die!"
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien
  • Super Strength
  • The Chosen One: Of his home species, which is the source of his superpowers
  • Top-Heavy Guy: He looks like this, and according to Erik Larsen that look isn't stylistic - he's really shaped like that because it's normal for his species.
  • Upgrade Artifact: How he knows so much about Earth
  • Wall Crawl: Since he's strong enough to dig his fingers into solid stone.

Malcolm Dragon

Jennifer Dragon (nee Murphy) AKA Smasher
  • Cute Bruiser
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Pulped the head of her abusive first husband to protect her daughter when her superpowers manifested.
  • Mama Bear: She first used her powers to protect her daughter from her abusive husband who wanted to take out his frustration on her since Jennifer was no longer suffering anymore.
  • Killed Off for Real: At least in the current reality.

Angel Dragon (nee Murphy)

She-Dragon AKA Amy Belcher (formerly Sensation)

Alex Wilde

Freak Force

Barbaric & Ricochet:
  • Altar the Speed: Barbaric proposes to Ricochet at the insistence of SOS's merchandising guy, since Ricochet is pregnant and he can't market a couple having a baby out of wedlock.
  • Dumb Muscle: Barbaric.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: luckily, Ricochet has stretching powers.
  • Playing with Syringes: How they got powers.
  • Rubber Woman: Ricochet has a very limited form of this— she bounces and can be stretched by external forces, but can't actually shapeshift.
  • She-Fu
  • The Runaway: Both of them are teen runaways.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife
  • Wedding Smashers: Predictably, a bunch of villains show up and start a fight, but Ricochet yells at them and they stop. This trope was lampshaded beforehand; when Barbaric invites lots of superheroes to the wedding because he wants a big superhero wedding "like Reed and Sue", Ricochet points out how much of a disaster that was.

Dart AKA Jill August

Horridus AKA Sara Hill

Nurse Ann Stevens AKA Mighty Man
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Ann as Mighty Man. Her friend Phyllis wants to sleep with Mighty Man even though she knows he's really Ann.
  • Flying Brick
  • Gender Bender: as Mighty Man.
  • Hospital Hottie
  • Killed Off for Real: her Earth version is killed by Chelsea Nirvana.
  • Missed the Call: She just happened to be the one at the deathbed of the previous Mighty Man, Robert Berman. His Grandson Billy didn't get to the hospital in time, so he transferred his powers to her instead.
    • Ann almost Missed The Call herself, being unaware of the transfer for weeks until she accidentally made the motion to transform into Mighty Man (striking her forearms together, while trying to break a fall). Her Savage World counterpart never had the accident, and went unknowing for years, until the Dragon from the original timeline showed her how to transform.
  • Secret Identity

Superpatriot AKA John Quincy Armstrong

Rapture AKA Sharona Jackson


Liberty & Justice

Mr. Glum
  • Mister Big: Outside of his Powered Armor, he is a very diminitive alien who is towered by anyone else, specially around his human girlfriend.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He is in genuinely in love with Savage World!Angel Dragon and tends to react very violently when she is injured.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Evil!Angel Dragon.
  • Galactic Conqueror: In Dimension-X, he had conquered several planets and laid waste to many others that stood in his way.
  • Killer Rabbit: Glum looks a little red doll and has a rather harmless name, but he is not to be underestimated: he is a fearsome Galactic Conqueror that devastated armies in his powered suit and could very well destroy Earth.
  • Powered Armor: To make up for his height, he wears a power armor that makes him a much more formidable foe capable of trading blows with the dragons.
