Millennia of evolutionary pressures turned his species into the Faerie Dragons we know today.
How to get
- Like all Elusive minions, Tyrantus cannot be the target of a spell or Hero Power from either player. However, it can be targeted by Battlecries and similar abilities, and attacks from minions and heroes. It can also be hit by area of effect and randomly targeted effects.
- Tyrantus' Elusive ability was removed in Patch 184.108.40.206969 although this could be a bug.
While Tyrantus is a huge minion that rivals Deathwing in size and is harder to remove than Deathwing, the fact it costs 10 mana and has no immediate effect on the board makes it difficult to play without already having board advantage. But once the Jungle Giants quest is completed, a 0-cost Tyrantus is an extremely powerful minion to draw. Since it lacks a Battlecry, it is also one of the best minions Giant Anaconda or Oondasta can pull out.
Tyrantus is also one of the best targets for Menagerie Warden since it is a 10 mana legendary beast that has no other effect than its presence on the board. Using Menagerie Warden on it gives a 10 mana legendary value battlecry, plus the Menagerie Warden itself which is a 5/5. Playing a Tyrantus, then Brann Bronzebeard and a Menagerie Warden the following turn can lead to a quick game ending.

Although unconfirmed, multiple rumours suggest this was supposed to be for mage instead in beta, with a different name and artwork. It was supposedly deemed "too game-swinging" at the time.
