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 word dracarys is translated as meaning dragonfire in High Valyrian.[1]



The Valyrian Freehold used dragonflame to make Valyrian steel.[Citation Needed]

During the War of Conquest, Aegon I Targaryen used his dragonflame against Harrenhal and at the Field of Fire. Afterward, the flame of Balerion was used to create the Iron Throne.
