The Ice Dragon Viserion's Blue Fire Was Revealed In The Game Of Thrones Seaon 7 Finale. But Are The Flames Hot Or Cold?
Fans are dying to know the truth. Is Viserion's blue fire hot or cold?
Viserion's Blue Fire Flames Could Be Hot Or Cold, But The Magic Is Unlike Anything We've Seen On The Show Before...
The Game of Thrones Season 7 finale was packed with jaw dropping moments. The most shocking of all was at the end, when the wight dragon used his blue flame to demolish the wall, leaving fans with many questions, like, is the Ice Dragon Viserion's blue fire hot or cold?
I mean, one would seem to imagine it would be cold, but how can we know for sure?
Viserion proved his new blue flames of fire to be powerful enough to completely demolish most of The Wall in a matter of minutes... it decimated a large enough section that now the undead army is able to pass through easily. To watch this scene again, view the end of Season 7 Episode 7 below!
Best Fan Theory About Viserion's Blue Flame So Far:
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 about ice dragons, according to legend from "A World of Ice and Fire,"
"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 wight ice 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.
Hot or cold, the blue flames are unlike any power we have seen on the show so far...
