The Dragon is a mysterious being that fought the Giant before being shot down by jets in 2003, 46 years (49 years in NieR RepliCant) before the prologue of NieR Gestalt.


In 2003, a battle began in the center of Tokyo, between the Dragon and a being known as the Giant. After the dragon emerged victorious, it was shot down by jets, falling into the world where magic doesn't belong. A substance that was spawned by the death of The Giant became responsible for a fatal disease known as the the White Chlorination Syndrome. Scientists took samples from The Dragon's body, which would eventually be used to create the weapons known as No. 6 and No. 7 as well as the basis for Project Gestalt.
