|“||You will know soon enough. Get stronger for that coming day. I will give you my power any time you want. However, keep it in your mind that it will come with a sacrifice of something great. I will give you something that is worth the sacrifice. You can show it to those who laughed at you. The existence of a “Dragon” that is.||„|
|~ Ddraig before lending Issei his power|
Ddraig is one of the Two Heavenly Dragons and the arch-rival of Albion. He is the Red Dragon known as the Welsh Dragon and Red Dragon Emperor who resides within the Longinus, Boosted Gear, wielded by Issei Hyoudou. He is feared among the Angels, Fallen Angels, Devils and the various other factions in the world for his destructive powers, which are said to be able to kill both Gods and Satans. In the past, Ddraig fought against his arch-rival, the Vanishing Dragon, Albion, which was interrupted by the Angels, Devils, and Fallen Angels who were at war during the time. In anger, both Dragons attacked the leaders of the Three Factions, which led to their bodies being destroyed and their souls being sealed into two separate Sacred Gears, with Ddraig being placed inside the Sacred Gear "Boosted Gear".

- Blazing Inferno of Scorching Flames: Ddraig's ultimate finishing move, he unleashes a stream of flames from his mouth that will instantly turn everything it touches into ash, also it never goes out and will even burn away the victim's soul until nothing remains. But that flame is ineffective against beings like Albion, Ophis and Great Red.

- Penetrate: Another ability of Ddraig. It allows Ddraig to penetrate through all abilities that would nullify or affect his attacks.
