The event took place during The Deepest Waters Tyrant event series. Dragon Runner Events are limited-time competitions in which players guide their Dragon through a 3-lane running track, avoiding obstacles and collecting Flowers Icon.png Flowers for milestone progress.

See PC Controls for information about keyboard controls used on PC.


Once the event begins, the Trainer's Dragon automatically moves forward, and the screen must be swiped (or keyboard arrows pressed on PC) to move to the next lane to avoid obstacles (twice to move 2 lanes). Each "run" attempt costs 1 Energy

Items and Obstacles

Food Food Icon.png, Gold Icon.png Gold, and Flowers Icon.png Flowers are scattered within the lanes, the latter of which accumulates to unlock milestone rewards, and also counts toward the leaderboard score. Some obstacles are destructible, clicking or tapping shoots a fireball to destroy them, while others are indestructible and must be dodged. While fireballs are unlimited, only 3 successive fireballs appear within a very short burst.

Checkpoints & Failures

Dragon Runner - Checkpoint.pngDragon Runner - Checkpoint (Winter).png

Flowers Flowers Icon.png collected while running are lost if an obstacle is hit, at which point the run may be restarted for 1 Energy (Food Icon.png Food and Gold Icon.png Gold are saved at the checkpoints). Alternatively, the Dragon can be revived for 10 Gems Icon.png Gems, which resumes the run without loss from the point of failure. Reviving also provides 5 seconds of invincibility immediately after revival, indicated by blinking, during which time obstacles can be passed through. When the Dragon stops blinking, invincibility has ended. Furthermore, there are 5 checkpoints per run, crossing one awards 10 flowers and increases the Dragon's speed slightly, which also increases the difficulty.

Win Streak

After two consecutive run completions, a win streak begins (for which there is no timer) and can subsequently be increased, if no losses occur. The win streak, if maintained, acts as a multiplier for collected flowers, starting at a 1x increase and increasing by 1x each win, up to a 5x increase.


Dragon Runner - Flag.png

When the running Dragon reaches the finish line (indicated by flags), the attempt is won and rewards given. Collected flowers are multiplied by the win streak (if any) and added to the cumulative total tallied for milestone rewards and leaderboard score.


There are ten difficulty levels, and five run-difficulties, one of which is selected at random before running starts. Run difficulties include: very easy, easy, medium, hard, and very hard. Each win leads to the next difficulty level, until the maximum level, while failing a run resets the difficulty to Level 1 again. Each level also takes a certain length of time, longer for harder levels, and the number of obstacles also increases.
