Dragon Drive is about a boy named Oozora Reiji, and his adventures in a virtual world. No, not The Matrix, this world is where children go in secret away from the adults, to play a game called Dragon Drive. Each child gets his or her own dragon, hand picked by his or her own personality. Reiji goes to check this place out and finds himself with the weakest dragon there: a tiny squirt, which he names Chibisuke. But what he didn't know was that inside Chibi was a power stronger than he thought.

This anime provides examples of:

  • The Ace: Anime-only Tachibana Kyoji is seen as this at school. Subverted in that he is soundly thrashed within seconds by Himuro at Dragon Drive.
  • Alliterative Title: Dragon Drive.
  • Aloof Ally: Himuro after his Heel Face Turn
  • Always Someone Better: Himuro Hikaru, for both Reiji and Sumishiba. He motivates Reiji and infuriates Sumishiba.
  • An Ice Dragon: Kanpa, Hagiwara's dragon
  • Anti-Hero: Himuro Hikaru and Sumishiba Ichiro after parting ways with Toki. Both go down a level (Himuro from V to IV, Sumishiba from IV to III), but Sumishiba is more mentally balanced to begin with, and Himuro remains a much darker character.
  • Ax Crazy: Himuro in the anime and first half of the manga.
  • Babies Ever After: Kind of. In the epilogue, pretty much the entire cast seems to have Generation Xerox children who have even inherited their parents' rivalries.
  • Badass: Himuro Hikaru, especially in the second half of the manga. Sumishiba definitely has a few scenes of his own.
    • Silver. Former dragon-buster and a Dual-Wielding master. She probably beats Hikaru for Badassery in part 1.
  • The Berserker: Rokkaku, generally when he's had a little too much to drink.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Reiji, Maiko, Hagiwara, Towa and Tachibana in the final battle in the anime. Also, Himuro does this twice. Once when Reiji is about to get eaten by a dragon, and Hikaru shows up on his new dragon and fries it; and another time in the anime when Reiji is fighting and losing against one of the Shishinryu.
  • Bittersweet Ending: They defeat the Big Bad, but only by merging the two worlds, which causes the dragons to disappear. However, we do see that Future!Takumi revives Dragon Drive 17 years later, so they get to see the dragons again.
  • Blank White Eyes: Toki when possessed by Shinryu in the anime
  • Blindfolded Vision: Himuro after the Time Skip.
  • Blood Knight: Himuro.

  Toki Kouhei: Hikaru's just a crazy battle freak!
