- “General Scales has unleashed the full force of the planet's dark energy, mutating Dragon Rock into a desolate wasteland. He has captured a number of Dinosaurs and is planning to change them into powerful killing machines! It's rumoured that one such creature already exists! This final SpellStone should bring Dinosaur Planet back together. Slippy out…”
- —Slippy Toad
Drakor is very similar to most common portrayals of Dragons and his name shares the first three letters with them. Drakor wears a triple clawed gauntlet weapon and has horned antlers atop his head, similar to General Scales, likely to increase his intimidating appearance. His appearance, as well as lack of resemblance to any other dinosaurs, hints that he was originally a SharpClaw before Scales mutated him, and his creation was to test out the mutation process. In addition, the fact that several of his body parts are mechanical in nature also imply that he is a cyborg. His appearance and arm cannon may have also been inspired by the Cyberdemon from the original Doom.
Once Fox released the captive dinosaurs in Dragon Rock, Fox was able to enter the center of the volcano, which was where Drakor appeared and attacked Fox while on a floating platform. Like most of the Dragon Rock level, this fight took place in first-person mode with the staff. After defeating him, he fell into the lava and Fox claimed the last SpellStone. He was created through severe mutation caused by General Scales, and appears to be some sort of humanoid dragon.
His attacks consist of shooting small blue Laser bullets at Fox and setting electric traps behind him. He'll fly behind obstacles in certain parts of the fight. He also will cease his attacks and fly away when laying traps. In parts of the fight, the player must shoot the red switches to turn off the fire being shot when certain places are passed.
Behind the scenes
- In the original script for Dinosaur Planet, Drakor was actually a major figure of the scrapped Kamerian race who would have directly opposed the Krazoa Spirits behind the scenes, resulting in a possible future in which the main character Sabre is killed in battle before Krystal travels back in time. This may have been deemed too convoluted or hard to write into the storyline since Krystal's playability greatly diminished when the title was converted into a Star Fox game. At any rate, Drakor was turned into another non-speaking boss and Andross would take his place as the bigger bad.
