The best way to breed a Butterfly Dragon is to breed an Air Dragon with a Firefly Dragon.

"Flightless as babies, the amazing butterfly dragons transform into multi-winged magnificent creatures. They can be found fluttering around the lush Sykie Meadows. Their large and beautiful wings are sure to attract visitors... unless the visitor mistakes their wings for a fearsome wingaling dragon."

I wonder if it's only around in the spring?

~Julz <3 *120 Dragons*

You can get in spring and summer.

How to breed this dragon......??? I want it.......!!!!!

you breed it with a blazing dragon and a lightning dragon.


I got it the first time I tried this combo sonic+firefly=butterfly at first I try what everybody said,then i tried my own combo and it worked and both the dragons I bred it with were level 10 awesome!
And regular breeding cave!:D

Just got it, with firefly + pollen. Was trying for seasonal dragon, got butterfly instead.

Use firefly + pollen ( both level 13)= leap year 14.30minutes!

Firefly and blazing, 1st try

Seven Dragons

Firefly and Air works fine. Got it first try.

dfshima78's picture

Blazing+firefly=butterfly. blazing was level 12 and firefly was level 15. First try.

What do u mean by level 12 and level 15

What dfshima78 means is what level the DRAGON is on. 12 and 15.

Wiiild's picture

Seems firefly and anything else with the air element works fine. Just my observation.

Just got 12 hrs with firefly and pollen

Air 10 + Firefly 10 = Butterfly second try.

Dragellie's picture

Got this 3rd try using firefly 13 and pollen 13 in breeding cave. Put them both back in again and now have a rainbow incubating!! Must be my lucky day!!

I cant get it :(

There back and I got one!!!!

Its back :)

I got this with firefly, level 15 and pollen, level 13. Good Luck!

heretonightjosephine's picture

Struggling to get it no matter what I put in :-(

air on left and fire fly on right first try

I'm supremely confused. Is it best to breed Firefly and Pollen or Firefly in Air? I have not yet tried Firefly with Pollen, but before I use up my precious time, I want to ensure that there is a high chance.

I just got mine breeding Blazing and Firefly. There are multiple combinations to try.

Just got it breeding Firefly and Fog in breeding cave.

Big Jay Sig's picture

After numerous tries (25+) with firefly and air, firefly and pollen, and firefly and sonic, my girlfriend told me to try firefly and smoke and sure enough, first try was a butterfly.

These dragons done stole all my free time!

Dragon Den - 2's picture

Got two in a row with air and firefly after tring a lot of pollen and firefly.

Friend me on GCS Reiki Junky

I'll be hosnest, it looks cool when Its older but, O.K I'll say, they look really, um... unusual when they are babies.

Xishom's picture

Hehe... The butterfly dragon as a baby is meant to look like a fat caterpillar. If he was green, he would look similar to the fat caterpillar in A Bug's Life.

Jeny Lynn's picture

6:28am EST - I've been trying to breed this little cutie with Air/Firefly nonstop in the cave and on the island and kept getting fireflies, scorches, and smokes. Got tired of those and thought I'd try Firefly/Sonic for a change; and WHAM! got a twelve hour breed time right off the bat! According to the sandbox, it should be this beauty. FINALLY! ;-)

P.S. - I can't wait until it hits the nursery and is confirmed! Lol.

I keep trying blazing and firefly in different orders and in cave and EBI. Still keep getting blazing, firefly, scortch and thunder. I don't wanna give up on using blazing and firefly cuz soooooo many people said that's what they used. HELP PLEASE!?!?!?


Well, the date said 6/24 when you open Dragonvale... but the message is still showing up today on the 25th. is it actually still available (as in: do I try one more time??)


117 out of 145 dragons, bred not bought
(and 1 cat who thinks he's a dragon)

I'm thinking that since it's still available to buy, it should still be breedable. Still trying for it myself, keep getting sonic and thunder.

I got it with Air(lvl 10) + Firefly(lvl 10) First Try On the Epic Breeding Island!


OhioDragonGirl's picture

I love butterflies n really want this dragon but it's alluding me. Don't have breeding island. Tried all sorts of combinations but no luck. Getting very frustrated!


SaucyWench's picture

They have made breeding the new and limited available dragons extremely difficult for those of us who have most of the dragons, and who have reached max levels. I have had only one success breeding nectar, and the rest (after literally countless tries) have received nothing. They are making it so difficult that I am getting bored with it.

aimsteroo's picture

Yes, SaucyWench!
I feel the same as you. It should be easier, not harder! Level 55 player and high level dragons should not make things harder!

Level: 60 / Dragon Count: 212 / Pedestals : 211

jarrat's picture

They claim L15 & above is MEANT to give increased chance, certainly has NOT been the case for me. Agreed, it makes it boring to get take 4 weeks to achieve something

Murrisha's picture

Got it after a handful of tries with Firefly (lvl 15) + Air (lvl 15) in the UBC. I didn't know I had it until my dragons had finished breeding and I went to incubate the egg. It's funny but usually when I don't check the breeding times, I end up with the dragon I've been trying for lol.

Level 95
