Sure, unicorns are cool, mermaids are beautiful, and werewolves are fierce, but when it comes to mythical creatures, nothing really beats dragons, right? We mean, the fact that they've popped up all over folklore, literature, movies, and TV has got to mean they're pretty special.
One of the most unique and beloved fictional dragons we've ever seen is the Night Fury Toothless from the How to Train Your Dragon films. Hiccup's (voiced by Jay Baruchel) companion has been a loyal and brave friend throughout the series. In the third and final installment, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, which soars into theaters on Friday, February 22, we'll see the heroes that Toothless and Hiccup have grown up together to become.
And we're not the only ones who are just in awe of dragons. There are so many celebs out there who also can't get enough of these majestic creatures. Check out just some of the famous faces who share their love of dragons loud and proud.
If you know Stassi Schroeder, you know that she loves just a few things in life: her boyfriend Beau Clark, wine, and Game of Thrones. When it comes to GoT, there's one character who reigns supreme for Stassi: the Mother of Dragons herself, Daenerys Targaryen. Daenerys has inspired Stassi's fashion and her desire to have a pet dragon of her own. She even calls the listeners of her Straight Up with Stassi podcast Khaleesis. We have a feeling Stassi could hold her own in Westeros, too.
Like Stassi, Ariana is also a Game of Thrones fan. So it's no surprise that she agreed to have a winter wonderland, GoT-esque joint birthday party in Season 7 of Vanderpump Rules. We have to admit she looks pretty amazing with that dragon ice sculpture at the top of this post.
Speaking of Daenerys, the actress behind the iconic character, Emilia Clarke, commemorated her time as the Mother of Dragons with a tattoo of her "babies" on her right wrist. Now that's a proud mama.
Angelina Jolie also famously had a dragon tattoo on her left arm. At one time, "Billy Bob" was also inked above the creature in honor of her then-husband, Billy Bob Thornton. But the Academy Award winner eventually removed his name after the two divorced in 2003, and the dragon tattoo eventually got erased as well. It was replaced with a tat featuring the geographical coordinates of the birthplace of each of her six children, as well as that of her ex-husband Brad Pitt.
Kendall Jenner and Sofia Richie
People took note when Kendall Jenner announced that she had named her new horse Dragon a few weeks after Sofia Richie shared that her horse, who went by the same name, passed away in January 2018. That's because Jenner has been outspoken about not being a fan of Richie and her boyfriend, Scott Disick, who used to be with her sister, Kourtney Kardashian. You follow?
So, some wondered if Jenner was being a little shady, given the timing of her Instagram post. A year later, and neither Jenner nor Richie have addressed the matter, so we may never know. One thing is for sure: Dragon is an awesome name for any animal.
Pink is bold in everything she does, including her ink. The singer has a large dragon tattoo on her left thigh, and we think it looks fierce!
Mel B has been a fan of ink ever since she burst onto the scene as part of the Spice Girls. But there's nothing scary about one of her most famous tattoos: the large dragon on her back. It's as cool as she is.
