Dragons are mythical creatures depicted in various different ways depending upon the particular cultures and folklore. For example, European medieval societies viewed dragons as destructive beasts with four legs and two wings, capable of taking flight and breathing fire. Conversely, Asian societies view the dragon with respect and reverence, and often depicted them as snake-like beasts with four to six legs and no wings.
