"Dragon Summit" is the eleventh episode of the Disney Channel Original series American Dragon: Jake Long.


Jake, Grandpa and Fu Dog are headed to the train station. Jake wondered how they are going to take the train to a magical world, but Grandpa said they are taking the elevator, Jake still got confused. When Grandpa pressed the elevator buttons and switched it the elevator came with a magical creature helping them with the bags. Fu Dog told Jake to hold on, and the elevator went downward really fast. The elevator dropped at high speed until it reached the Isles of Draco. Jake makes his way on his skateboard, but an Australian Dragon named Fred Nerk makes him trip and hurls towards the council. Andam turns into a dragon and hits the skateboard and Kulde turns into a dragon and rescues Jake, but breaths ice and accidentally freezes Chang.

Jake had did a couple of bad things such as using shape shifting powers for personal gain, revealing dragon identities to humans, and taking a soul sucking nix to a school dance, but Fu told Councilor Kulde he shouldn't blame Jake, cause Jasmine was hot (Omina, Chang, Kukulkhan, Andam, and Kulde get confused). Lao Shi told the councilors that Jake is brave, has a good heart, and even greater... FU! (shows Fu is playing a violin) What? I thought you were trying to create a mood here. The Dragon Councils show 3 tests such as the Test of Judgment in Fire, the Test of Wisdom in Battle, and the Test of Courage in Flight and they required Jake to pass at least 2.

First test is Using Dragon-Fire, this test is shooting fire balls at Ice Sculpture, he suppose to fire at the bad guys and not fire the good guys. But since he had a sneezing powder, it went off that Jake started sneezing and he shot fireballs at the good guys and he failed. His Grandpa got disappointed at him. Fu says the council never wanted him to be Jake's master because they didn't want any relatives training a young dragon,

In a volcano, there's an evil and dark creature-like dragon in gray clothes, and a servant arrived and told the evil dragon that Jake failed the 1st test.

They later were training for the second test, Knowledge in Battle. Jake challenges Fu (who's in a griffin costume) in a statue museum. Jake wondered why the Huntsman is the #4 Threat and the #1 Threat is the Dark Dragon. When the battle starts, Jake has to fight the Brownies. He used what he always uses "Plan Jake" but as the test says you have to have knowledge to win. When Brownies are winning, Jake thought and remembered that brownies like shiny things, he made the dirt shiny by shooting fire balls and caught the brownies in his bare hands, and he passed.

Later, he is about take the test Courage in Flight. Chang gives Jake the choice of opponent. Jake chooses Nerk as his opponent, over Fu Dog's recommendation of the weakest opponent Guatemalan dragon. When Jake and Nerk are flying, Nerk does mean stuff to get Jake off guard, but when Jake has him beat, a large shadowy hand appears in front of Jake. Nerk comments that's new before he watches Jake avoids it, but Nerk gets grabbed instead and is taken in a volcano. Knowing what he is meant to do, Jake goes to save him, but Nerk calls it out that its a trap. Indeed, an evil dark creature-like dragon arrives who is revealed to be the Dark Dragon and ambushes Jake. The latter is shocked to see him alive, as his grandfather defeated but the villain snarls that his grandfather was lucky. A bunch of foot soldiers that work for the Dark Dragon called Shade Demons corner Jake. However, Jake fights off the demons and rescues a chained Fred Nerk. Jake instructs him to run while he fights the Dark Dragon, as he complies and the battle resumes. After putting up a good fight, Jake is overwhelmed but Fred Nerk returns and stops Dark Dragon allowing them to escape and Jake gets one of the Dark Dragon's claws when he fails to stop them.

Jake and Nerk are relieved the battle is over before they continue the race but Nerk beats him causing Jake to failed the 3rd test. Grandpa tells Jake it was an honor being his master but Jake tells him that he would of won if Nerk had not gotten kidnapped by the Dark Dragon. Grandpa, the Dragon Councilors, and the other dragons are shocked to learn that the Dark Dragon is back as Jake states they narrowly escaped the villain. The Council asks Nerk if this was true, to which he confirms by stating that Jake had him beat though turned back to save him. While Chang tries to uphold the rules, her decision is met with protest from the other dragons however, Councilor Kulde told Jake that sacrificing his own glory to save a dragon in danger shows good Test of Judgment in Fire, and Omina nods. As a reward for his compassion, Kulde gave a Jake a bonus credit that says pass. Chang gets mad they would believe children, but Jake just dropped the Dark Dragons claw as proof the villain's return.

When Grandpa and Jake and Fu Dog are leaving, Jake asks Grandpa who is acting serious, why he is not happy, and why they aren't separated. He states that he is unnerved because the Dark Dragon knew too much about the test, meaning that there is a dark spy working with him.

Meanwhile back at the volcano, the Dark Dragon states to his spy the plan had failed but the same servant who arrived revealed to be Councilor Chang. She states Jake will either join them or be destroyed as other dragons were. (This explains why Chang gave Jake the illusion of choice of opponent: Choosing a weak opponent means their plan is more likely to succeed.)

When Jake and the gang are about to leave, he is met by Fred Nerk who thanks him for the rescue and the two shake hands promising a rematch the next year. Despite this, they pulled one last prank and the same one at each other.
