Reiji Ozora is a typical slacker teenager, dragged by his friend (and would-be girlfriend) Maiko to a secret arcade where he discovers a passion for the VR game Dragon Drive. The object of the game is to train and fight with virtual reality dragons, constructed using a player's genetic code as the building blocks-like a DNA-centric version of the old Bar-Code Battlers. At first, Reiji's dragon Chibisuke looks like a runt: a tiny snow-white bundle of cuteness that baffles the staff, so presumably none of them have heard of Anne McCaffrey's novel The White Dragon (1978), with which we are sure any similarities are purely coincidental. When Chibisuke gets into action, he turns out to have impressive firepower in what begins as yet another predictable gaming tale framed along the lines of Pokémon and its ilk. However, a few episodes along, DD suddenly adopts a new direction redolent of Exper Zenon and The Last Starfighter, with Reiji transported to the fantasy world of Rikyu where the dragons are real. He is soon entering Chibisuke in gladiatorial combats in Rikyu, but is forced to deal with problems back home when a rival returns to Earth with some of the precious Dragonite element. The usual rounds of challenges, counter-challenges, and battles to save the world ensue, and two years later, in Legendz, they all ensue again.
