"There are no such things as Dragonaches! They're imaginary." --Quote from "Chewnicorn in the Garden" episode

Pronounced: drae'gahn ahsh (rhymes with panache)


Finding a Dragonache egg is a matter of luck and patience. First, you will need a mine in your garden. These are available from Willy Builder at level 26, for 16,500 chocolate coins. You will also need to hire one or more Diggerlings from Arfur's Inn. You are now able to find a Dragonache egg, however it may take a while. See Mine for methods of improving production.

Once obtained, the Dragonache egg will not hatch by itself as other eggs do. Instead, you will need to purchase a Cluckles from Miss Petula's Paper Pets for 1,100 chocolate coins. Then direct (Button a.png) Cluckles to the egg and it will hatch. If you haven't done this before you will earn an achievement. The Dragonache egg cannot be broken.

The resulting Dragonache will only be a baby and it will not go into a cocoon by itself. To mature a baby Dragonache into an adult one, you will need to feed it a bottle of milk, a Snapdragon flower, a Dragumfly, a Reddhott, and a Salamango. Doing so will cause the Dragonache to go into its cocoon.

Species variants

The Dragonache variants are uniquely obtained. Each has it own color, style of teeth, mane, ridges, wings, and tail. The terrain where you hatch its egg will affect the color of the Dragonache. The other features are completely random. It is estimated that there are over 20,000 Dragonache variants.

Species variants for the Dragonache
Gold Dragonache

Hatched on dried/cracked earth
Brown Dragonache

Hatched on fresh soil
Blue Dragonache

Hatched in water

Other information

If, at any time, the Dragonache is getting in the way, you can dismiss it by hovering over it, bringing up the menu (Button x.png), and selecting dismiss. And when you want it back, Gretchen Fetchum is happy to fetch it you, free of charge!

The Dragonache is a special Pinata. It cannot become sick, and thus unable to be broken open by Dastardos. The Dragonache cannot be sold, sent to the Post Office, or to Piñata Central. You may only have a single Dragonache in a garden at any time which makes it impossible to romance Dragonache. Basically, it is there to look pretty.

If the Dragonache's Happiness Rating is half or less, it will glow red, and cause other Pinatas to fight each other.


Commonly asked questions
Can I have a Dragonache in each of my gardens?

Yes. Each garden can have its own Dragonache, but you'll need to find and hatch an egg in each garden. View thread

How do I make my Dragonache happy?

You can feed it Happy candy or Joy candy. If they are too sad to eat the Joy candy, feed them a piece of Happy candy first. A Dragonache's happiness is important, as a sad Dragonache will start fights with other pinatas. View thread

I have one garden with a Dragonache, but Gretchen won't fetch another.

Gretchen won't fetch another Dragonache, as she would for other species. If you want another Dragonache (for a different garden), you'll have to find and hatch another egg.

What Gretchen can do, is call a Dragonache back to a garden, if you've dismissed it from that garden. (However, she can't call it into a different garden.) View thread

How do I mature a Dragonache?

Feed a young Dragonache a bottle of Milk, a Snapdragon flower, a Dragumfly, a Reddhott and a Salamango. Unlike other piñatas, Dragonaches will not cocoon and mature on their own. In order to mature your Dragonache you must feed it all of the above items. View thread

Is there any point in keeping the mine and Diggerlings once you have your Dragonache?

Diggerlings can also dig up gems and gold from the Mine. View thread

Are the gems and gold valuable?

Yes. Other players tend to buy gems and gold for a fairly good price. You can search the Trade over Xbox Live forum for Gems threads, if you have some gems or gold to sell.

My diggerlings haven't found a Dragonache egg yet. Any tips?

See answer.
