    Before you fought Jack of Blades as the final Boss there were other Dragons planned but they were sadly cut. Luckily a lot of information about them survived in the coding so we can get hints about what we could of faced when Fable was originally released.
    Trogdor the Dragon.
    A Dragon that was cut because the developers didn’t have the time to make him “Fun to Fight” and the game was nearing its release schedule. Trogdor has a lot of assets in the coding including animations. He looks a lot different to the Jack of Blades Dragon.
    Kyris The Dragon Boss.
    The original Dragon that you would have fought at Dragon Cliff. He was cut at an early stage and only a few textures of him remained in the coding. At some point you were also supposed to battle with him in the Arena. The Arena commentator in the coding had commentary announcing “In round 8 our Hero faces Kyris the Dragon. There were also camera angles for him written in the coding.
    As a Fable 4 is now on the cards I wondered if anyone would like a return of these magnificent beasts or preferred something completely different.

    I think Dragons and the like would be a great addition as they can be varied in many ways with types and attack styles and such and present an interesting challenge to players. Always liked going against them in Skyrim and the early encounters were fantastic and challenging.

    I definitely agree, Skyrim’s really impressed with its large Dragon battles. The Jack of Blades Dragon was a slight disappointment but mostly because you were so overpowered at the end of the game. I much preferred the battle with Kyris at Dragons Cliff when you will supposed to use the old forts defences to aid you. I really would love to see the return of big bosses back in Fable and definitely a return of Dragon’s.

    It's an old thread but since it's been necro'd, Silverback of the modding community and others worked on porting and implementing Kyris to TLC... 12 years ago, and with limited success. I've been looking into it to see what I can do, but it's a distant side project at the moment.

    I’ve also read hints from the original creative team that at one point there was also supposed to be a third Dragon but I can’t find anything in the coding or textures for it if there was. Its possible that work on it was completely deleted or that it was cut at a very early stage unfortunately. May be someone else has found something more?.

    Two textures exist for a third dragon in the original Fable data iirc. Probably bump maps, a lot of those hanging around unused.

    It’s so hard to imagine that the original Fable had so much cut content. I find something new that surprises me hiding in the coding everyday almost. I’m so glad that there are some remnants of the third Dragon somewhere buried in those games files though. I have done plenty threads on here before about some of these lost creatures, Spells, quests but the mysteries of a third Dragon has always eluded me. Thank you VinDiesel.
