Dragonflame or dragonfire is the fire produced by a dragon. The dragon expels its fire from its gullet and out of its mouth. The older and larger the dragon the more devastating its fire. The High Valyrian word for dragonfire is dracarys.
The Valyrian Freehold used dragonflame to make Valyrian steel. It was also employed in construction to melt and fuse stone, as in the cases of the dragonroads and the Black Wall of Volantis.Template:Red
Dragonflame can come in different colors. Where the flames of Balerion were as black as his scales, the flames of the dragon Sunfyre were golden, while the Blue Queen is known to have breathed flames in the colour cobalt.

|“||Then the dragon opened its mouth, and light and heat washed over them. Behind a fence of sharp black teeth he glimpsed the furnace glow, the shimmer of a sleeping fire a hundred times brighter than his torch.||”|
|“||The dragon caught one burning body just as it began to fall, crunching it between his jaws as pale fires ran across his teeth.||”|
|“||Longclaw had been forged in the fires of old Valyria, forged in dragonflame and set with spells.||”|
