Dragon's Breath-0

Drgaon's Breath In Bloons Tower Defense 5

Dragon's Breath is the third upgrade on the second path for the Monkey Apprentice in Bloons TD 5. It also appears in Bloons Super Monkey 2. A Monkey Apprentice with this upgrade becomes a Disciple of Fire. The wizard fires an endless stream of flames at bloons, popping them quickly. This upgrade is a greatly improved version of the Fireball upgrade.


These can be devastating to bloons when placed near a Viral Frost Ice Tower.

It is a good idea start Bloons TD 5 levels with a Monkey Apprentice, used like a Spike-o-pult. When the game progresses, more cash will enable you to purchase this upgrade. Once this upgrade is purchased, you will have a better defense, allowing you to save up for Banana Farms or other expensive and powerful upgrades.

In BTD Battles, this upgrade vastly improves the Apprentice's ability to defend against rushes. However, it will take a lot of time to purchase the upgrade.

The Disciple of Fire is capable of hitting any type of bloon without assistance, making the Disciple of Fire a great choice for anyone not wishing to use an x | 3 Monkey Village or for players wishing to use a lot of towers which lack or benefit from the coverage the Disciple of Fire has.

Pairing Disciples of Fire with Disciples of Wind or Masters of Wind makes for a very effective counter-rush strategy.
