The azure dragon is a subspecies of Dragon found on Enroth, appearing in Heroes of Might and Magic III: Armageddon's Blade. They are statistically the most powerful creatures in Heroes of Might and Magic III, ranked at tier 10 and boasting exceptional attributes.
Little is known of the Azure Dragon. It is both rare and mighty, thus few have seen it, and fewer still have survived its attacks. This powerful creature is not much bigger than most dragons, but is said to be capable of enduring prolonged physical attack. It is said those standing face-to-face with an Azure Dragon tend to freeze from pure fear.
The azure dragons are exclusively equipped with the Fear ability. However, despite their exuberant statistics, they are only immune to magic spells level 1 to 3. Azures are armed with the highest innate attack, defense, health and damage of all Heroes III creatures, are capable of flight and a breath attack, and are particularly fast.
They are one of only three 10th-tier creatures in the game, ranked alongside crystal dragons and rust dragons, though easily more powerful than either. Incidentally, they are also by far the most expensive units in the Heroes series, costing an enormous amount of gold and mercury.
