Dragon with no arms or legs. Just wings and a body. This hero is *not* a wyrm.
This hero is a wyrm in Heroes of Newerth, which is fine by fantasy standards, as you are actually encouraged to break the mold when building your own fantasy universe.
Trolls in the LotR are completely different from trolls in WoW. This doesn't make one iteration more correct or better than the other, it's just that universes version of a fantastical creature, nothing more.
As for people crying about how "Dragons aren't fragile!", this applies to that as well.
Who says that all fantasy dragons have to be powerful, muscled, wise, ancient, and greedy? What is wrong with a fantasy game having their dragons be powerful magic users with fragile bodies? Nothing.
(An example for why it is perfectly fine for this HoN dragon to be agility, using basic common knowledge biology.) In order for birds to take flight, their bone structure is very light and very fragile. Certain species of lizards can be incredibly fast (run on water, anyone?), with bodies designed for dexterity and freedom of movement. Combine those two and what do you get? A FLYING dragon who has light and fragile bones, a smallish body, and lithe muscles designed for speed and control. Is it really that hard for you to wrap your minds around this?
Quit comparing this hero to typical fantasy cliches and actually get some imagination.
