A winged pseudodragon, D, is a type of monster that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack. It is a carnivorous and domestic dragon-like creature that is the first stage of pseudodragon to be capable of flight as its name indicates. Winged pseudodragons also have a tendency to wander, will pick up gold and gems, and can be seen via infravision.

A winged pseudodragon has a bite attack, two claw attacks, and a breath weapon similar to that of half-dragons.


Winged pseudodragons are not randomly generated. A large pseudodragon can grow up into a winged pseudodragon, and a winged pseudodragon can grow up into a huge pseudodragon.


Pseudodragons originate from Dungeons & Dragons, where they resemble true dragons in appearance but are usually far smaller and far more docile, which makes them suitable as familiars for wizards. They do not usually grow to the sizes shown in dNetHack and notdNetHack, which rivals that of the true dragons in those variants.
