A player flying on a Shadow Dragon

The Shadow Dragon is a limited Developer Product and Robux pet in Adopt Me! released during the 2019 Halloween Event from October 18 2019 to November 1st 2019. It was obtainable by purchasing the Shadow Dragon Gamepass for Robux.png 1000.

It could be bought from the Candy Trading Shop near the old Graveyard, or in the Gamepass Menu. It was located in front of the small tombstones along with multiple other pets exclusive to the 2019 Halloween Update. Other pets released along with the Shadow Dragon were the Zombie Buffalo, and later, the Evil Unicorn and the Bat Dragon. When the 2019 Halloween Event ended on November 1, 2019, the Shadow Dragon became unavailable. Currently, the Shadow Dragon can only be obtained through trading.


The Shadow Dragon has a skeletal and gaunt appearance. It looks black in color with its most notable features including horns, arched snout, lavender glowing eyes, a tongue, wide wings, and visible spines and ribs sticking out along with a glowing tongue- although it only lights up at night. It has a partially exposed rib cage that emits glowing particle effects. Similar to the Parrot, Crow and Frost Dragon, the Shadow Dragon sits on the ground when not in motion.

Neon Appearance

In its Neon form, the Shadow Dragon has its horns, inner wings, and back spines glowing a bright light purple and its breath is more visible than it would normally.

Listed below are the tricks the Shadow Dragon learns in order:

Sit - Newborn

Lay Down - Junior

Joy - Pre-Teen

Jump - Teen

Dive - Post-Teen

Shadow Breath - Full Grown


  • It has one exclusive trick: Shadow Breath.
  • The Shadow Dragon is the second dragon to be released and was released after the original red Dragon, but with a brand new model.
  • The Frost Dragon is a variation of the Shadow Dragon in cyan and light blue with curved horns, fewer spikes, and a chest with a non-visible rib cage. The Frost Dragon also bears a similar exclusive trick to Shadow Breath, called Frost Breath.
  • The Mega Neon version used to cycle through only two colours - blue and white. It has now been updated so that it now cycles through the entire rainbow.
  • The Shadow Dragon was originally planned to be a permanent Robux pet, like the Griffin, Horse, Koala, Panda, and Kitsune, but due to backlash on Twitter because of misconceptions, they followed the community's requests to make the pet limited. In the same Twitter post, they mentioned that they "would be more clear next time" with their intentions, and this resulted in the Frost Dragon released in the 2019 Christmas event to have a timer counting down the hours before it would be gone.
  • The Shadow Dragon was the only Robux pet in the you could buy in the 2019 Halloween Event.
  • Ironically, Regular Shadow Dragons without any modifications (such as being a neon, flyable, or rideable pet) are actually rarer than one with special attributes, the one exception being the Mega Neon variant.
