      ​@bridge4 Bro, this just opened up a HHUGGE rabbit hole for me! Been a fan of your vids, so I thought, ok lemme see wtf a Stormlight is. 5 minutes ago, I never knew of Sanderson. Now I'm like, I really want to learn everything about this crazy magic world! Figure I'll start with Elantris. Rite on

    I'm sorry, but I think you've contradicted yourself. You said that there's no such thing as blood of the dragon, and that power is illusion, but you've read Fire and Blood. Fire and Blood talks about The Dance of the Dragons, a war in which the Queen enlisted people who could bond with dragons to fight for her. The only people that could bond with dragons were "Dragonseed"-Bastards from the Dragonrider bloodlines. Everyone else got toasted to a crisp and ate.

    Now, your statement that power is an illusion could be true, because while the Targaryans did keep it in the family, they also married daughters to other houses. The most notable that exist in the story is House Baratheon. Robert was The Mad King's first cousin. In theory, Robert's bastards (Gendry, or some from his youth that we don't know about) could be Dragonriders. Or any member of any house from a Targaryn line, including Aegon The Horrible's bastard houses.

    So, while the Targaryans aren't the only house that could potentially ride dragons, there is a Blood of the Dragon. Dragons only recognize the blood of Old Valyria as riders, although that can be *anyone* with Old Valyrian blood.

      There is more evidence of the food being a factor than the volcanic action being a factor crossing out the food seems hasty.

        Let's ask why Drogon is smaller in S8 v/s S7. A mess.

          I don't like your interpretation of things. Not at all.
          You see that when she was chained alongside her dragons with the warlock. They were exactly the same size. Exactly.
          When you get the picture of the eggs you can see that the camera was shooting on perspective so it make sense that the first egg was bigger. Anyway.....

                          And he's also the smartest, dunno if that makes sense in their sizes but no one actually acknowledged it. And I think smartest animals survives and grows in the given environment because they were able to adjust

                            F&B says that Targaryens had better resistance for plagues. They were also the only family able to ride on dragons, they had colours of eyes and hair, which were impossible for another families. Valyrians weren't like normal people, so your last arguement is invallid (when you said there isn't anything like dragon's blood).

                              @bridge4 Some lords during Dance of the Dragons tried to ride dragons, but they died. Nettles was propably Dragon Seed.

                              @Jendrew YT nettles did not appear to be targaryen. And it would have been hard for other families to ride dragons because the targs kept a tight grip on the eggs. They freaked out when the three eggs went missing for this reason. starks didnt have an opportunity to bond dragons for example since they didnt have any eggs ... basically theres an illusion of causation when it's just correlation (those with the eggs bonded the dragons)

                              There are only family in the world, that can ride dragons, so maybe they have other special abilities.

                              @Jendrew YT because everyone was brainwashed into thinking they were gods when they are just humans

                              @bridge4 It also says, that they were immune for lot of illnesses, and when this little princess (I tkink her name was Daenerys), everyone was surprised.

                              Probably because he was Daenerys favourite and got the most food when the dragons were young

                                    Drogons egg wasn't bigger, it just looks like it cause of the angle. I believe he was bigger because he was able to roam free, unlike the other 2

                                    Pretty sure it’s because the other two spent like a season and a half locked up in a dungeon which was said multiple times to hinder the growth of dragons for whatever reason

                                      It's probably a factor. But we dont know it to be true. Barristan suggests that as a reason in the books and jorah counters that he doesnt believe it to be a factor

                                    Here's another theory it has to do with the sacrifices used to hatch the eggs. Drogo was a warrior one of the greatest warriors in the dothroki see

                                        @Tekkdogg I believe kings blood is a liez or rather a mistake. Nothing special about the blood of someone named a king or someone who descends from someone named as a king. Melisandre believes it to be true, but that doesnt make it true. Grrm likes to play with belief like that

                                        For instance, hes said that no gods have been on stage. Characters believe in them, but he doesnt know if they are even real and havent played a part in the story

                                        I ask because at around 9:00 you said that there is no thing as kingsblood and blood of the dragon, even thou Gendry was almost burned because of his "kingsblood" because its special. The TV series shows that Targaryen blood has magic properties and I'm not sure if you meant the show or the books while talking about kingsblood.

                                        Also keep up the good work man, you're the best.

                                      Because the other two were locked and shackled, drogon flew free and ate more

                                        Drogon is bigger because the other 2 were locked up and not able to fly. He was free for a long time while they never flew. If dragons don’t get to fly they don’t grow. That’s why the last dragons were the size of cats they weren’t needed for war after they conquered everything

                                          One reason: Daenerys shackled Viserion and Rhaegal when they were younger and Dragons grow to fit their surroundings. Drogon was never shackled.

                                                I,am an 100% atheist in real life,and even i belive in the power of blood in the books.
                                                Dragons somehow are able to choose there riders an 99% of the time those are with valerian blood.
                                                Although i believe that the term magical creature is a little overused by the fandoom.
                                                I don't believe that dragons are as special,ashai is probably filled with them.

                                                  If I'm not mistaken it's because of the time that the other two were locked up, if they remember in season 7 when they are agreeing with cersei to support them in winterfell with the white walkers, in a scene Jon and Daenerys are talking and she says " For a time they were the center of attraction, they fought among themselves, being locked up did not let them grow, their skull did not grow more than that of a cat "

                                                      Rhegal and Viserion were locked beneath the pyramid of Mereen and probably didn't eat as much and so that experience probably stunted their growth. Drogon meanwhile was able to eat, fly and grow strong in the wild.

She was right back where she started. By now I was invested in her character and then she made a move that had me like ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh SHIT!!!! She stepped into a great fire that burned Drogo's body and awakened her three dragon eggs. Ever since the first season's last episode the dragons became my favorite characters of the show. Every season I would look for the growth of the dragons. Every season watching very closely the dragons growth was equal in size,Every season. Despite them being locked up every season they came back they were not the same size that they were in the previous season. All the way to the final season Rehgar was the same size as Drogon. When John first Road Rehgar They put their heads side by side so you could see they're the same size. You're entitled to your opinion I just didn't see the thing's ur talking about in this video.

Being a rogue dragon saved Dany’s life. As he was never caught and locked away like Rhaegal and Viserion. After the accidental death of the shepherds daughter. Plus Drogon was always bolder- however I think that Rhaegal and Viserion could have been bigger and bolder if they had not been locked away. They never really had a chance to be as strong and independent as Drogon. As Drogon was free to roam as he pleased. Thus making him the biggest and he had far more battle experience ( which is why he survived) in the show. When poor Viserion and Rhaegal did not. Still annoyed that they killed Rhaegel in the show- Losing Viserion was bad enough
