The Dragoon is a legendary air ride machine from Kirby Air Ride, appearing as an item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is broken and collected in three parts - the nosecone, hull, and tail, referred to as parts A, B, and C, respectively. Notably, the Smash Ball will not appear with the parts in play, though once it is used up, the remaining parts may appear again.
Any player can collect Dragoon parts, though once a player has all three pieces at one time, they are able to finish assembling the Dragoon, and can then use it to aim and launch into opponents in the battlefield, damaging and potentially knocking them out. However, other variables and factors near these fighters, such as walls and invincibility, may prevent this. If a player is damaged while in possession of a Dragoon part, it is often dropped, allowing a rival to collect the part instead. The Dragoon parts appear rarely and one at a time.
During a team battle in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, unlike in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, if both players on a team collect all three Dragoon parts, the player who collects the last required piece is the one to use the Dragoon. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Dragoon also appears as a Spirit.
Role in The Subspace Emissary
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary, the Dragoon makes one appearance, acting similar to the Warp Star. During the scene in which Ganondorf and Bowser have just blown up the Halberd, all of the heroes arrive in their respective ships. They all continue firing at the enemy ship as it fires back. However, as enemy's ship is so large, the aircrafts are not able to inflict enough damage. Just then, Kirby arrives on his Dragoon and flies straight into the ship's cannon, blowing it up. The other ships resume fire and eventually burst it into flames.

|An attack-capable Air Ride machine you can assemble by combining parts A, B, and C. You can knock off parts held by foes in combat, so stealing parts is something that's sure to occur. In Kirby Air Ride, you control legendary machines, but the Dragoon not only towers above all others in terms of speed, it is also able to fly.

|Collect parts A, B, and C to assemble the legendary Air Ride machine known as the Dragoon. Take careful aim, and then ride it toward your target. A hit will send enemies flying out of the battle. Taking damage before you've collected all the parts can knock them from your grasp, however.
