Great Red also known as the Apocalypse Dragon, the True Red Dragon God Emperor, True Dragon, and the Dragon of Dragons, is a powerful Dragon that resides in the Dimensional Gap. It is the dragon recorded in the Apocalypse. The name of the show (Highschool DxD) is based on his title (Dragon of Dragons or DxD)
Not much is known about Great Red's past except for the fact that he has occupied the Dimensional Gap for quite some time, apparently taking residence after Ophis left. Some time before the series, he was challenged by Tannin (a former Dragon King) to a fight but he ignored him.
