As known dragons are not necessarily enemies of each other despite different alignments.

What I am wondering is are there any known instances of friendliness or friendship between chromatic and metallic dragons?

    \$\begingroup\$ I actually meant whether you refer to a particular setting such as Forgotten Realms or Eberron etc or just any setting in general. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @ThomasE.: Thanks, I figured, just wanted to confirm. Also note that the [dungeons-and-dragons] tag doesn't cover Pathfinder, but if you do want to ask about Pathfinder (1e and 2e) that should probably be its own question anyway since the lore is totally different. \$\endgroup\$

While not from 5e, the 2000-2002 Dragonlance novel trilogy The War of Souls contains an instance of 'friendliness' between Mirror (Solomirathnius), a silver dragon and Razor, a blue dragon. They work together for a while since they have common goals and do not attempt to outright kill each other.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @V2Blast I don't believe its through all of the trilogy. I read the books a while back from a local library and don't exactly remember across which book(s) it occurs. (I had to do a bit of googling to get the names correct as well). \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 7, 2020 at 4:21

The answer by Karan Shishoo is probably more in line with what you have asked for, but since you asked for generic lore, let me add the following:

There is an entire 2e campaign setting called the Council of Wryms, initially published as a boxed set and later as a hardcover book. The setting is located in its own crystal sphere, and the main location is a chain of islands called Io's Blood Isles. The Isles are ruled by a council, with dragon clans of 15 different dragon types (5 chromatic, 5 gem, 5 metallic) represented democratically. Dragons do not war against dragons, and disputes are resolved at the council.
