Brutal black dragons are a superior version of black dragons. They are found in the Catacombs of Kourend. Players can kill them for a black dragon task, as they are relatives.

Players can access the dragons by heading towards the Dragon's Den and running past the brutal blue and red dragons, or alternatively, use the hole found in the Lovakengj House to take them there immediately (this requires climbing up the rope from inside the catacombs first).

Like all brutal dragons, they use Melee, Magic and long-range dragonfire. Using both Protect from Magic and Antifire potion will completely protect players from damage, if players don't stand in Melee range.

Due to the brutal black dragon's unique drop table, it is the best way for ironmen to obtain a dragon spear, as the only other way of obtaining one is through the rare drop table, which has a much rarer drop rate. Brutal black dragons and mithril dragons are the only monsters to drop the dragon full helm.

Brutal black dragons also have the best generic drop table out of all of the dragons in-game.
