For this game, they had a red dragon during the first chapter, in reference to Hooktail, and a white dragon as a bonus boss, in reference to Bonetail...and yet they didn't complete the circle by having you fight a black dragon during Chapter 8, to reference Gloomtail. Especially since that chapter is already black!

Even the name could've been perfect! Fracktail, Wracktail...? They could've called the black one Blacktail! Have him be a Tribe of Darkness creation to protect the Chaos Heart or something, in imitation of what the Ancients built Fracktail for.
Peace and crackers!

I don't think that they were a deliberate reference to TTYD, to be honest. I think that IS just likes dragons.
I'm not your guy, friend!

Ehh, considering where they're both fought and that their colors both match up, I find this a little hard to believe.
Peace and crackers!

Aside from it being the first chapter, Fracktail's location has nothing to do with Hooktail's and they both dragons have totally different boss fights to their counterparts.

Fracktail is more based off of a Chinese Dragon, while Hooktail is based off of a dragon from the Middle Ages.

*sigh* You realize they don't have to look or act identically in order for there to be a reference, right?
uhh, yeah, they kinda do. If not then it’s just a coincidence.
