Motherboard was a giant Dragon who had invaded the Fiore via Eclipse Gate on Future Rogue’s order. It has the hardest body, which is impenetrable. This dragon also goes by the other alias-Diamond Dragon.

It is one of the strongest dragons in the verse, as proved by its multiple magic uses and strength. It had also given quite a tough competition to Natsu and Atlas Flame. Apart from its magic, it uses a peculiar form of ‘Egg Magic,’ which, upon hatching, releases a large number of dragon entities.
