If a dragon has no [ chimu ], he cannot ascend to the sky. Further sources give variant lists of the nine animal resemblances. The head of a crocodile.
The neck of a snake. The palms of a tiger. And it hears through its horns, its ears being deprived of all power of hearing.
Chinese dragons were considered to be physically concise. Of the scales, 81 are of the yang essence positive while 36 are of the yin essence negative.
Initially, the dragon was benevolent, wise, and just, but the Buddhists introduced the concept of malevolent influence among some dragons. Just as water destroys, they said, so can some dragons destroy via floods, tidal waves, and storms.
They suggested that some of the worst floods were believed to have been the result of a mortal upsetting a dragon. Many pictures of Chinese dragons show a flaming pearl under their chin or in their claws.
The pearl is associated with spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, or the moon. Chinese art often depicts a pair of dragons chasing or fighting over the flaming pearl.
This description accords with the artistic depictions of the dragon down to the present day. The dragon has also acquired an almost unlimited range of supernatural powers.
It is said to be able to disguise itself as a silkworm , or become as large as our entire universe. It can fly among the clouds or hide in water according to the Guanzi.
It can form clouds, can turn into water, can change color as an ability to blend in with their surroundings, as an effective form of camouflage or glow in the dark according to the Shuowen Jiezi.
In many other countries, folktales speak of the dragon having all the attributes of the other 11 creatures of the zodiac, this includes the whiskers of the Rat , the face and horns of the Ox , the claws and teeth of the Tiger , the belly of the Rabbit , the body of the Snake , the legs of the Horse , the goatee of the Goat , the wit of the Monkey , the crest of the Rooster , the ears of the Dog , and the snout of the Pig.
In some circles, it is considered bad luck to depict a dragon facing downwards, as it is seen as disrespectful to place a dragon in such manner that it cannot ascend to the sky.
Also, depictions of dragons in tattoos are prevalent as they are symbols of strength and power, especially criminal organisations where dragons hold a meaning all on their own.
As such, it is believed that one must be fierce and strong enough, hence earning the right to wear the dragon on his skin, lest his luck be consumed by the dragons.
Chinese dragons are strongly associated with water and weather in popular religion. They are believed to be the rulers of moving bodies of water, such as waterfalls, rivers, or seas.
The Dragon God is the dispenser of rain as well as the zoomorphic representation of the yang masculine power of generation.
There are four major Dragon Kings , representing each of the Four Seas: Because of this association, they are seen as "in charge" of water-related weather phenomena.
In premodern times, many Chinese villages especially those close to rivers and seas had temples dedicated to their local "dragon king".
In times of drought or flooding, it was customary for the local gentry and government officials to lead the community in offering sacrifices and conducting other religious rites to appease the dragon, either to ask for rain or a cessation thereof.
The King of Wuyue in the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period was often known as the " Dragon King " or the "Sea Dragon King" because of his extensive hydro-engineering schemes which "tamed" the sea.
At the end of his reign, the first legendary ruler, the Yellow Emperor, was said to have been immortalized into a dragon that resembled his emblem, and ascended to Heaven.
Since the Chinese consider the Yellow Emperor and the Yan Emperor as their ancestors, they sometimes refer to themselves as " the descendants of the dragon ".
This legend also contributed towards the use of the Chinese dragon as a symbol of imperial power. Dragons usually with five claws on each foot were a symbol for the emperor in many Chinese dynasties.
During the Qing dynasty, the imperial dragon was colored yellow or gold, and during the Ming dynasty it was red. During the late Qing dynasty, the dragon was even adopted as the national flag.
Dragons are featured in carvings on the stairs and walkways of imperial palaces and imperial tombs, such as at the Forbidden City in Beijing. In some Chinese legends, an emperor might be born with a birthmark in the shape of a dragon.
For example, one legend tells the tale of a peasant born with a dragon birthmark who eventually overthrows the existing dynasty and founds a new one; another legend might tell of the prince in hiding from his enemies who is identified by his dragon birthmark.
In contrast, the Empress of China was often identified with the Chinese phoenix. Worship of the Dragon God is celebrated throughout China with sacrifices and processions during the fifth and sixth moons, and especially on the date of his birthday the thirteenth day of the sixth moon.
Dragons or dragon-like depictions have been found extensively in neolithic-period archaeological sites throughout China.
The earliest depiction of dragons was found at Xinglongwa culture sites. A burial site Xishuipo in Puyang which is associated with the Yangshao culture shows a large dragon mosaic made out of clam shells.
The Hongshan culture sites in present-day Inner Mongolia produced jade dragon objects in the form of pig dragons which are the first 3-dimensional representations of Chinese dragons.
One such early form was the pig dragon. It is a coiled, elongated creature with a head resembling a boar. Chinese literature and myths refer to many dragons besides the famous long.
The linguist Michael Carr analyzed over ancient dragon names attested in Chinese classic texts. Fewer Chinese dragon names derive from the prefix long Chinese scholars have classified dragons in diverse systems.
For instance, Emperor Huizong of the Song dynasty canonized five colored dragons as "kings". Further, the same author enumerates nine other kinds of dragons, which are represented as ornaments of different objects or buildings according to their liking prisons, water, the rank smell of newly caught fish or newly killed meat, wind and rain, ornaments, smoke, shutting the mouth used for adorning key-holes , standing on steep places placed on roofs , and fire.
Each coin in the sets depicts one of the 9 sons, including an additional coin for the father dragon, which depicts the nine sons on the reverse.
The early Chinese dragons can be depicted with two to five claws. Different countries that adopted the Chinese dragon have different preferences; in Mongolia and Korea, the four-clawed dragons are used, while in Japanese dragon three-clawed dragons are common.
The Hongwu Emperor of the Ming dynasty emulated the Yuan dynasty rules on the use of the dragon motif and decreed that the dragon would be his emblem and that it would have five claws.
The four-clawed dragon would become typically for imperial nobility and certain high-ranking officials. The three clawed dragon was used by lower ranks and the general public widely seen on various Chinese goods in the Ming dynasty.
The dragon, however, was only for select royalty closely associated with the imperial family, usually in various symbolic colors, while it was a capital offense for anyone—other than the emperor himself—to ever use the completely gold-colored, five-clawed Long dragon motif.
The convention was carried into the Qing dynasty , and portraits of the Qing emperors were usually depicted with five-clawed dragons. In works of art that left the imperial collection, either as gifts or through pilfering by court eunuchs a long-standing problem where practicable one claw was removed from each set, as in several pieces of carved lacquerware ,  for example the well known Chinese lacquerware table in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
The number nine is special in China as it is seen as number of the heaven, and Chinese dragons are frequently connected with it. For example, a Chinese dragon is normally described in terms of nine attributes and usually has 9x13 scales—81 9x9 Yang and 36 9x4 Yin.
This is also why there are nine forms of the dragon and there are 9 sons of the dragon see Classical depictions above. The Nine-Dragon Wall is a spirit wall with images of nine different dragons, and is found in imperial Chinese palaces and gardens.
Because nine was considered the number of the emperor, only the most senior officials were allowed to wear nine dragons on their robes—and then only with the robe completely covered with surcoats.
Lower-ranking officials had eight or five dragons on their robes, again covered with surcoats; even the emperor himself wore his dragon robe with one of its nine dragons hidden from view.
The Dragon is one of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac which is used to designate years in the Chinese calendar.
It is thought that each animal is associated with certain personality traits. Dragon years are usually the most popular to have children.
There are more people born in Dragon years than in any other animal years of the zodiac. In this context, the Azure Dragon is associated with the East and the element of Wood.
