Ancient Fairy Dragon is a Duel Monster Spirit.
 She is one of the servants of the Crimon Dragon, often referred to as the Signer Dragons.

Luna is the Signer associated with Ancient Fairy Dragon. The Ancient Fairy Dragon card was in possession of the Dark Signers, until Luna defeated Devack with Leo's help, and claimed the card back. The only other humans that have come in to contact with her are Yusei Fudo,Tetsu Trudge,Jack Atlas and Leo.


In the eight millennium B.C., Ancient Fairy Dragon served the Crimson Dragon and fought alongside it and the other Dragons in the ancient battle against the Crimson Devil, Red Nova.

In the third millennium B.C., Ancient Fairy fought with the other dragons in the battle against the Earthbound Immortals. The dragons managed to seal the Immortals within the Nazca Lines, but Earthbound Immortal Uru grabbed Ancient Fairy Dragon with its web and dragged it into the earth with the other Earthbound Immortals.

Sometime later, Ancient Fairy Dragon became a ruler in the Duel Monsters Spirit World (though it is not explained in the series how she ended up there) and kept watch of the spirits that resided there. Regulus the white lion is revealed to be a servant to Ancient Fairy Dragon.

In the twenty first century, Dr. Fudo created "Ancient Fairy Dragon" and three other Signer Dragons as Duel Monster cards to be used as key cards for the reactors of the Old Ener-D. After Roman Goodwin betrayed him, he dropped "Ancient Fairy Dragon", which then fell into Roman's possession, until he gave it to Devack.

When 3 year old Luna entered the spirits' world, Ancient Fairy Dragon watched over her too. She warned Luna of an evil that threatened the land, and had Luna promise that she would protect it. Unable to cope with the responsibility, Luna broke her promise and returned to her own world.

After Luna left, the spirits' world became polluted with evil. Zeman the King used the Minus Curse to seal Ancient Fairy Dragon in stone.
