When Xaldin crashes the Beast and Belle's night in the ballroom, still intending to turn the Beast into a Heartless and Nobody to further the Organization's plan to complete Kingdom Hearts, he summons these Nobodies along with Dusks to cover him while he steals the Beast's enchanted rose from his room in the west wing.
A Dragoon is a thin, dragon-like creature with silver and purple skin. Its hands only have two distinct digits, while its feet have three long, purple claws each. It also has a thin, purple tail and sharp, white wings with purple tips lined by spikes resembling those on the Nobody symbol.
The Dragoon's real "face" seems to be a small, black area in what seems to be its neck, while its draconian "head" acts as something of a helmet. This "helmet" sports a jagged, open mouth at its end, lacks eyes, and is lined by thin spikes. The Dragoon's upper body and "neck" are covered in magenta straps. There is also a white Nobody sigil on its left thigh. Like all lesser Nobodies, Dragoon's have astounding levels of flexibility. It wields a long lance as a weapon.
The Dragoon is based on the Final Fantasy job class of the same name. This in turn was named after the real life cavalry used by the 17th and 18th Centuries armies in Europe and even in the American Revolution. In addition, the "Learn" Reaction Command is used by Blue Mages in the Final Fantasy series in order to mimic monster abilities.
Dragoons are one of the most powerful Nobodies. When they appear, they drop directly to the ground, causing damage with a shockwave. Jump to avoid the shockwave attack then lead up with a combo. They use the jump attack constantly, and it can make fighting difficult.
- The pose that the Dragoons are in is nearly identical to the pose of Kain Highwind from Final Fantasy IV.
