Is The Wight Walker Dragon Viserion A True Ice Dragon? Mystery Revealed...

This weeks Game Of Thrones Season 7, Episode 6 "Beyond The Wall," had fans in shock, but also very curious: Is the wight walker dragon Viserion a true ice dragon?

If you look up "Ice Dragon" in the Game of Thrones Wiki it reads:

"An ice dragon is a legendary creature somewhat resembling a dragon, but made of ice and breathing cold instead of fire."

The Most Popular Ice Dragon Theory:

After seeing Viserion's new piercing-blue eye after being touched by the Night King, many fans assumed that he then became an Ice Dragon.

However, George R. R. would seems to not quite agree...

Is A Wight Dragon The Same As An Ice Dragon?

The Answer:

No.

In 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' series, Martin details two distinct kinds of dragons. The most common are the fire-breathing dragons from Old Valyria. The second are ice dragons, who make their home in the frozen wastes of the Shivering Sea. These Ice Dragons however, are not the same thing as a wight dragon, made by the Night King.

Legend has it that both ice AND fire dragons exist on their own and a wight Dragon is something differen't all together.

Basically, fire dragons and ice dragons are two very different breeds, and killing one kind and raising it as a wight won't suddenly transform it into the other kind.

So, just to confirm, even though Viserion is now a wight dragon, he's not an official "Ice Dragon."

Just because his corpse has been raised by the Night King doesn't mean that he now has the ability to spew ice instead of fire… AND, if he does, then the show will have explaining to do.
