10 Incredible Dragons We'd Like to Meet (or Run From)


6
Trogdor the Burninator

Homestar Runner is a cult-favorite, Flash-animated Web series that's rich with quirky, not-quite-playing-with-a-full-deck characters. And when the animated cast gets an email request to draw a dragon, the action takes off. Starting with the letter "S," this dragon initially has some pretty impressive guns. (Can you call arms "guns" when they're on a dragon? And why would a dragon have human arms, anyway?) With a bit of trial-and-error and a lot of eraser debris, Trogdor, a majestic dragon with just one beefy arm, comes to life. To a heavy-metal soundtrack, Trogdor the Burninator wreaks havoc on peasants, cottages and the countryside -- and thus became one of the Web's most popular cartoon skits to date.
