One-Punch Man Wiki

Ground Dragon (グランドドラゴン, Gurando Doragon) was an artificial mutant created by Dr. Genus of the House of Evolution. He was killed by Saitama.[2]


Ground Dragon was a large brown mole with a white pattern in the form of Kanjis for "ground" and "dragon" (together meaning "mole"). His only other distinctive feature was his large claws.

House of Evolution Arc[]

Saitama finding Ground Dragon

Ground Dragon is part of the team that goes after Saitama on Dr. Genus' orders. When Saitama unexpectedly kills Kamakyuri and defeats Frog Man and Slugerous, Ground Dragon is able to grab Saitama's feet and drag him into the ground, trapping him with only his head showing.[3] As Beast King arrives to the scene, Ground Dragon comes to the surface and comments that it will be easier when the victim cannot resist. Ground Dragon is surprised when Saitama frees himself with ease and warns Beast King not to kill him. He is shocked to learn that Saitama is much stronger than they expected when he witnesses him killing Beast King and flees back underground. However, Saitama dives into the ground as well, turns up right in front of Ground Dragon and punches him through the ground into the sky.[4]

Abilities and Powers[]

As a Tiger-level threat, it can be assumed that Ground Dragon was a decently strong being.

Physical Abilities[]

Underground Mobility: Ground Dragon's only abilities seemed to be his ability to dig under the ground at high speed. He could use this to flee from the fighting scene or to dig under a person's feet and then grab the target and drag him underground.[5]

Ground Dragon vs. Saitama 7, 8 2 Loss


  • His name "Ground Dragon" is a literal translation of "土竜" which means moles in Japanese meanwhile the exact pronunciation is mogura.
  • In the anime, the six mutated creatures sent to retrieve Saitama are shown on a screen in the House of Evolution. Every other mutant had its animal appear; Lion (Beast King), Gorilla (Armored Gorilla), Praying Mantis (Kamakyuri), Frog (Frog Man), and Slug (Slugerous). However, in place of a mole, a lizard appears onscreen, apparently representing Ground Dragon.
  • In the anime, towards the end of Episode 2 Ground Dragon's corpse could be seen splattered on the side of Saitama's apartment.
