The Jade Mountain Prophecy was a prophecy given by Moon at the end of Moon Rising and in the beginning of Winter Turning, predicting the destruction of Jade Mountain unless the Lost City of Night could be found. This prophecy is described as the first true NightWing prophecy in generations. Many people believe that the second verse's first two lines refer to the Orb in the Sky, as well as the "stalker of dreams" either being Darkstalker or Ex-Queen Scarlet, although Flame was theorized to be both the "stalker of dreams" and the "darkness of dragons" by Darkstalker. He had also said that Darkstalker himself is the "something is coming to shake the earth" when he was first released from his slumber. The "talons of power and fire" are theorized to be Anemone and Peril. Some people also think that "Beware the talons of power and fire" refers to the group The Talons of Power, which is an organization run by Vulture in Darkness of Dragons to take over the Scorpion Den. Some believe that the "one who is not what she seems" is Anemone as she was revealed to not be an animus by blood but instead enchanted by Turtle to have the power. It is likely that Pyrite is the "one who is not what she seems" as she is not Pyrite but Hailstorm. Onyx is a third possibility as she was not ordinary as originally thought but is really a princess, daughter of Prince Smolder.
The Jade Mountain Prophecy Edit
Beware the darkness of dragons,
Beware the stalker of dreams,
Beware the talons of power and fire,
Beware one who is not what she seems.
Something is coming to shake the earth,
Something is coming to scorch the ground.
Jade Mountain will fall beneath thunder and ice
Unless the lost city of night can be found.
Beware one who is not what she seems. - Onyx, she appeared to be a regular student, but was the granddaughter of Queen Oasis and was working with Vulture to seize the SandWing Throne. Another possibility is Cobra for pretending to side with Qibli but in reality, plotting to assassinate Queen Thorn, alongside her father, Vulture. Another common theory is Pyrite, since Pyrite is only a "mask."
Something is coming to shake the earth, - Some think it is the flying object ("the fourth moon"), or referring to Darkstalker (his size, or the destruction he will cause).
Something is coming to scorch the ground. - Vulture's SandWing army, or Darkstalker.
Unless the lost city of night can be found. - The lost city needed to be found so The Soul Reader could be collected and convince Darkstalker he was evil and provide a chance to defeat him in his hesitance. The Lost City of Night was also necessary to the defeat of Darkstalker due to Foeslayer turning up there and talking to Qibli and (although he didn't know he was talking to Darkstalker's mother), he convinced Foeslayer that her son was too far gone, and this pushed her to aid Kinkajou to put an end to Darkstalker.
- This is one of three real prophecies (the other two are by Clearsight), and four overall prophecies not including Allknowing's prophecies (The fourth is The Dragonet Prophecy).
- This is the main plot for the second arc.
- This prophecy does come true and is the only current prophecy in the main series that has come true (debatably).
