Elder Dragons are a type of Dragon in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Their health pools and attack damage are considerably higher than the basic Fire and Frost Dragons. Elder Dragons can breathe both Yol (fire) and Fo (Frost). They are considered middle class compared to other dragons the strongest being the Legendary Dragon (If Dawnguard is installed) and the weakest being a regular Dragon.

Elder Dragons are similar in appearance to Ancient Dragons, however, their black markings are traded for a tan-copperish marking, and they have a golden-copper color instead of the ancient's pinkish-copper.
