White Dragon (monster)
The White Dragon (Japanese: 白竜 White Dragon) is an enemy-only monster class that appears only twice in the Fire Emblem series, in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It is, in theory, a more powerful variant of the Necrodragon, although it shares base stats with the Necrodragon in Gaiden. Like the Necrodragon it attacks by biting, though in Gaiden there is no actual weapon associated with it; this is reflected in Shadows of Valentia by its use of the Fangs monster strike.
The white dragon only has two known instances in Gaiden, with both of them appearing in the same chapter.

- In Fire Emblem Gaiden, White Dragons are classified as Necrodragons, with White Dragon being the units' names. This trait is shared with the Lich, Deathgoyle, Entombed, Fiend, Aurum, Cerberus, Naberius, and Hades.
- Most White Dragon enemy units appearing in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia are labeled as the "Brethren" faction instead of the "Terrors" faction label used by other monster enemy units-including the similar Necrodragon. The Brethren faction label is notably used by the Fire Dragons and Dagons appearing on Archanea. The exact implications of this seemingly deliberate labeling choice are unknown.
