Brutal red dragons are found in the north-west section in the Catacombs of Kourend, between the brutal blue and brutal black dragons. They can be killed as part of a red dragon slayer assignment.

They possess the same melee and ranged defences as the weaker brutal blue variant, yet more Hitpoints and a more lucrative drop table. This could make red dragons a Slayer task worth unlocking.

Like all brutal dragons, they use Melee, Magic and long-range dragonfire. Using both Protect from Magic and an antifire potion will completely protect players from their dragonfire and magic attacks, and they can be safe-spotted this way if not standing within melee range.
