Promotional picture of the Chinese Dragon for the DVD, Carnival Capers

The Chinese Dragon is a scary dragon from Thomas and Friends. It is a dragon made of paper-mache especially for carnivals. When Thomas was sent to collect it from Brendam Docks, he was surprised at its appearance, until his driver explained that, being made of paper-mache, it could do no harm. Unfortunately, Percy, who was stuck on a siding that same night, did not realize this, and was scared as Thomas passed by him. The next day, Percy saw the dragon at Elsbridge Station, but Thomas explained to Percy about the Dragon and the carnival it was for, relieving him.

The Chinese Dragon can be lit up from the inside to become illuminated. Since Season 10, the Chinese Dragon can move its head and dance about.
