Atari Dragon a.k.a. Freakin' Duck
Strong Bad: Somebody get this freakin' duck away from me!

The Atari Dragon is an 8-bit creature that has often been mistaken for a duck. The dragon comes from the Atari 2600 game Adventure. The objective of Adventure is to take a magic Chalice and place it in the starting castle (Strong Bad can actually be seen carrying this Chalice in Main Page 13). The three dragons in the actual game were yellow, green, and red; so, while the yellow dragon (whose name is "Yorgle") could be considered an actual character from the game, the white dragons seen in "Everybody to the Limit" could not.
