Rate the hottest dragon in pop culture

Illustration for article titled Rate the hottest dragon in pop culture

You know you think about it. Don't even pretend you don't look at dragons in that way sometimes. Over at Vulture, pop culture aficionado Jordan Hoffman has ranked the greatest dragons from hottest to . . . least badass.

His hottest dragon vote goes to Godzilla's three-headed, flying space kaiju nemesis Ghidorah, which is absolutely as it should be. For least badass, we get Eliot, from Pete's Dragon. Which, again, fair enough.

No word on Smaug, but I believe the internet's vote has already been cast by the hordes of scribbling fanfic writers who may have some opinions on dragons who are the CGI alter ego of Benedict Cumberbatch.


Read the whole list at Vulture.

Smaug has always been the hottest. Ghidorah has nothing more going for him but extra heads.

I love Kazul from the Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede - she's the king of dragons, after all!

I know that Skysong (Kitten) from Tamora Pierce's The Immortals series is cute as a tiny dragon button, but her mother Flamewing was super hot.

Obviously Temeraire, from Naomi Novik's dragons-in-the-Napoleonic-wars series, but also Excidium.

Selendra and Sher from Jo Walton's Tooth and Claw make an adorable dragon couple.

And Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.
