Dragon - The second of Ken's puppets to make an appearance, Dragon resembles a three-eyed, four-armed lizard with jagged teeth with spiky black spikes protruding from the top of its head and framing the sides. Ken typically keeps Dragon wrapped in bandages on his back, and he is able to switch places with it at will using a technique similar to the Body Replacement Technique. Because of Ken's enjoyment in installing mechanisms into his puppets, Dragon is very offensive, having numerous concealed weapons, including poison-tipped darts, kunai, blades and a huge poisoned needle concealed within its head. Dragon has also on occasion released smokescreens in order to blind its opponents. The smokescreens can be made up of poisonous gas to serve a secondary purpose. Dragon is also able to detach any of its body parts for separate attacks.
