Fin Fang Foom, also known as "The Sleeping Dragon" (沉睡的巨龍 or chénshuì de jù lóng) is an ancient Chinese dragon of myth and is the guardian of the fifth Makluan Ring.
History of Fin Fang Foom
When Tony and Gene activated the Test of Sacrifice, Fin Fang Foom was awoken and attacked them along with Pepper. Pepper tried to throw the Makluan Rings to him, but it didn't work. Tony planned to sacrifice himself to pass the test, but lucky for him, Rhodey in his War Machine armor arrived with his Iron Man suit. Iron Man and War Machine began fighting the dragon, to no avail. Gene let himself get eaten to pass the test and Fin Fang Foom stopped attacking. Inside the dragon, Gene found the Makluan Rings and the fifth one as well. Fin Fang Foom froze into solid ice and Gene escaped through its mouth.
Through unknown means, its statue reappeared where it was before inside the Temple of Sacrifice.

- His name translates to "He Whose Limbs Shatter Mountains and Whose Back Scrapes the Sun."
