Zapgon is a large yellow dragon. The creature's body is vaguely spherical in shape. The torso is covered in small, hedgehog-like spines. Zapgon has two semicircle eyes and a jagged, pronounced brow. There are two larger spines on top of its head, as well as two large horns that have dark gray tips. Zapgon has a pronounced, bulldog-like lower jaw with five teeth: three small ones in the center, and two large, upward-pointing fangs with dark gray tips. The creature has two small arms with two white claws. It also has two large, two-toed feet. Zapgon has a long, thin, wire-like tail with an electrical plug on the tip; the tail is dark gray with silver metal parts. It also has two small wings with translucent membranes.
Zapgon's spines can absorb enormous amounts of static electricity. One touch of the plug on its tail can short circuit any machine.
Zapgons are solitary creatures that are sometimes responsible for power outages, because they feed on the static electricity that they absorb with their spines.
Zapgon can be found in caves and urban areas.
Zapgon does not transform.
