WMG / Dragonheart

Go To

Draco is Sean Connery's true form.
During filming, he just took off that human costume he's always walking around in.
  • So, James Bond was played by a dragon? Too awesome to happen.
  • Considering that in the Sequel Dragonheart: A New Beginning, the evil Dragon Griffin was voiced by the same actor who plays his human form Harry Van Gorkum, it is not too unlikely to imagine the same principal applying to Draco if he was turned human.

Draco's death could have been avoided.
Case 1: While Einon can't be killed, he can still be injured (for example, getting stabbed by Kara and shot by Brother Gilbert). Why not cut out the dragon heart? Mortal once again.Case 2: If that doesn't work, just throw the king in prison for all eternity. It's not like he has any supporters left that would release him. Plus, "Death should be a release, not a punishment."
  • I suspect that cutting out Einon's heart would be incredibly painful or possibly even deadly for Draco. We've seen that each feels the effect of any woulds the other receives. And locking him up leaves it open for him to escape and seize power again in the future. Besides, sacrificing his own life is the only way for Draco to earn his place in Dragon Heaven.
    • Speaking of Dragon Heaven, the film makes it clear that with all the other dragons dead, Draco doesn't have that much to live for. Once he sees humanity on the way towards good, his task is complete and he can achieve the death he actually yearns for.
  • What about cutting off Einon's head? I doubt he'd survive that seeing as how the half-heart is what keeps him 'immortal' and his head wouldn't be attached to it anymore, and since Draco is the life source it wouldn't kill the dragon. It would probably hurt like hell but not for terribly long and then Draco could've gotten his heart back, still earned his place and not needed to have died.
    • The pain and shock caused by chopping off Einon's head may very well have killed Draco anyway.

The Scarred One was Draco's mate, and Drakes mother
  • When Draco found out Bowen had just killed a dragon, he says "she and I were the last". Drake had to have a mom.
    • There's no indication of how many dragons Bowen has killed since starting his dragonslaying career, or whether Draco's mother was even still alive at the beginning of the movie; she could have been long dead.
      • It's possible that in the French dub, he actually refers to her as his mate.
      • He does : he calls her "ma fiancée".
  • There are a few pieces of evidence to suggest that Draco could be Drake’s father.
    • Firstly, Drake so strongly resembles Draco that he could be mistaken for a young Draco.
    • secondly, the egg was found by Bowen in Draco’s cave which can’t be an accident.
    • thirdly, when the dragons were few in number it’s likely Draco and the Scarred one would have realised they needed to mate to preserve their species when they were the last two left.

    • fourth, If you watch carefully during the fight between Draco and Bowen it’s not until Bowen brings up killing the Scarred one that Draco gets angry and stops pulling punches during the fight which suggests that at the very least he was fond of the Scarred one to get angry about her death.
  • It’s also possible that rather than being the father of Drake’s egg, Draco was simply the egg’s guardian which was entrusted to him by the Scarred one or another dragon (possibly Siveth based on Drake’s ability to breath both fire and ice) before their death.
Calvin and Hobbes are reincarnations of Bowen and Draco
Let's face it, both of these pairs of characters have eerily similar personalities and dynamics. They're always fighting and arguing comically, and have no problems getting into wacky hijinks, either intentionally or by accident. Draco, though obviously enjoying a good time and some violence, tries to nevertheless steer his bitter human companion on the right path by returning to the Old Code, just like how Hobbes tries to be Calvin's conscience, to varying degrees of success. And most telling of all, when they attempt to remove Kara from the picture before she messes up their plans, Draco, instead of eating her, puts the moves on her, to Bowen's chagrin. Kind of like how whenever Calvin and Hobbes try to pester Susie, the latter always ends up getting his groove on with her.
  • Besides, following that logic, dragons no longer exist in the present days: they are mythical creatures and, even if you personally knew one, nobody would believe you anyway. Kinda like how Calvin knows Hobbes is real, but to everyone else, he's just a stuffed toy.

The third and fourth films are sequels to the first film
The asteroid containing the dragon eggs is said by the prophecy in The Sorceror's Curse to be falling from the constellation of Draco itself, strongly implying that the Dragons' Heaven has sent the spirits residing there back to Earth as there have been no dragons in existence for more than an age. Strengthening this further is the first time Gareth meets Drago; he recognises him instantly as a dragon and a creature of legend, not some strange monster mankind has never known before. It is also established that the Old Code of King Arthur's time has fallen into further disregard than it did in the first film, with a few of the knights labelling it as being akin to a nursery rhyme.
  • Possible, but that's a bit depressing if you consider the implications for Geoff and Drake; plus, I'm fairly sure we see a range of murals of other dragons, which include an image of what looked very like Draco.
