The Handsome Dragon is a boss monster that appears at the beginning of and just before the end of the campaign of Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep. It is the Handsome Sorcerer's pet.


The Handsome Dragon first appears at the Unassuming Docks, when it appears as the first boss. When first encountered, it cannot be damaged. The Dragon then spews a fireball that can easily down a character, before it is removed from the game to be replaced with a different boss known as Mister Boney Pants Guy.

The Handsome Dragon returns later when it is sent to attack the Vault Hunters at the final bridge in Hatred's Shadow.



  • In its first appearance, the Handsome Dragon is added to Tiny Tina's game by Tina herself before Lilith argues against putting such a powerful boss in the start of the game.
  • The Handsome Dragon commonly drops Eridium, several blue and purple rarity items (including spell grenades), and numerous stacks of money.
  • The Handsome Sorcerer refers to the Handsome Dragon as Smokey.
  • If enough time passes during the boss fight with the Handsome Dragon, Tina will bring the White Knight into the battle to assist the character.


  • The Handsome Dragon is Tina's allegory for The Warrior.
