The explosion of this combination is capable of destroying and melting steel instantly. because the flame works more like a missile, it is not given the prize of the most powerful fire flame. because it is one of the few dragons to have 6 limbs and the only one to have the shortest legs with respect to the size of his body is fast on the ground and agile in body to body fights which allows him to defeat even the largest dragons.
