Did The Dragon Use Blue Fire Or Blue Ice To Destroy The Wall?
Fans are dying to know. Did The Dragon Use Blue Fire Or Blue Ice To Destroy The Wall?
The Dragon's Weapon To Destroy The Wall Was Either Blue Fire Or Blue Ice:
After Sundays Game of Thrones Season 7 finale, many fans want to know: Did The Dragon Use Blue Fire Or Blue Ice To Destroy The Wall?
This is not such an outlandish question as there seems to be a lot of debate on fan forums and in various media sources covering the topic as to whether the wight dragon used ice or fire?
Could it be both? At first a lot of us assumed that it would be a cold ice, but maybe that's not true?
One thing that the The Game of Thrones Season 7 finale proved, was Viserion's ability to use his blue fire to completely demolish most of The Wall in a matter of minutes... The rest of the wall is now crumbing around the gaping hole the army of the dead is now using to march into Westeros.
Here you can watch the scene again:
There Are Fan Theories About Viserion's Blue Flame:
What we can gather so far is that the blue flame holds a very powerful magic. This magic could be dark "undead" magic or the same magic that the Children of the Forest used when they saved Bran (The Three Eyed Raven) by using blue rocks that turned into blue flame when they hit the ground in the cave last season.
Prior to this season, we didn’t have much to go on when it came to ice dragon's, wight dragon's or what their blue fire might actually look like.
Here's a quote from "A World of Ice and Fire," where ice dragons are explained:
"Of all the queer and fabulous denizens of the Shivering Sea, however, the greatest are the ice dragons. These colossal beasts, many times larger than the dragons of Valyria, are said to be made of living ice, with eyes of pale blue crystal and vast translucent wings through which the moon and stars can be glimpsed as they wheel across the sky. Whereas common dragons (if any dragon can truly be said to be common) breathe flame, ice dragons supposedly breathe cold, a chill so terrible that it can freeze a man solid in half a heartbeat.
Sailors from half a hundred nations have glimpsed these great beasts over the centuries, so mayhaps there is some truth behind the tales. Archmaester Margate has suggested that many legends of the north — freezing mists, ice ships, Cannibal Bay, and the like — can be explained as distorted reports of ice-dragon activity. Though an amusing notion, and not without a certain elegance, this remains the purest conjecture. As ice dragons supposedly melt when slain, no actual proof of their existence has ever been found."
This legend of ice dragon's would make one believe that perhaps Viserion isn't an ice dragon, but something else like a wight dragon.
According to legend, ice dragons breathe “fire” that is so cold it instantly freezes and kills whatever it touches. It’s a deep cold not known anywhere else.
Perhaps the undead dragon's blue flames were incredibly hot magical flames? It would seem that heat would be the greatest weapon against the walls magic but not only heat alone could take down the wall's magic.
