Green dragons are the weakest of the adult chromatic dragons in RuneScape. They are found in various locations within the Wilderness as well as in the Corsair Cove Dungeon. Green dragons are capable of breathing dragonfire, which can hit up to 50 damage on players who are not wielding an Anti-dragon shield or Dragonfire shield. Using one of these shields will partially block the dragonfire, and using one of these shields with an antifire potion will block the dragonfire completely.

Green dragons are assignable as a Slayer task by Vannaka and Krystilia. If players wish to avoid the risks of the Wilderness when assigned green dragons as a Slayer task, they can kill baby green dragons within the Brimhaven Dungeon or green dragons in the Myths' Guild basement. If players want to challenge themselves, brutal green dragons in the Ancient Cavern can be killed as an alternative. Two green dragons are fought during Dragon Slayer 2.

Warning: Green dragon hunters are frequently targeted by player-killers. If opting to kill green dragons in the Wilderness, an emergency teleport, high healing food and prayer potions are highly recommended in the event that you are attacked by another player.
